So, I'd been paying $800 a month in New England for boarding my horse. Last fall we got a letter that board was increasing by $150 due to the rising costs of the horse industry. The letter stated that it would take this increase to maintain the level of safety and services that we'd been enjoying.
Then two days ago we got another letter asking for an additional $60 to cover the cost of the increase in hay. Needless to say, I was a bit annoyed.
Does anyone else find this tacky, or is this just the reality of increasing business expenses in the horse world. Sadly, my income is not going up and I may have to sell my beloved animal, or find an inferior barn. (I'm currently at the best one in the area).
