    Interesting. The horses where Mac is kept are almost all overweight. They have a ton of grass and hay, and the owners feed alfalfa, so everyone is fat.

    When I commented on the condition the horses were in for $300/month, their comment was "All they paid for was pasture. They're lucky we put out round bales.". Guess that's why they now have no boarders and I am full.

    Thanks for all the info guys- I didn't realize how much disparity there was between what different barns call pasture boarding! I will be going to look at my potential horse this weekend and looking around for a place to board him next week if he looks good (and also going back to see him with my trainer and vet for a PPE)

    But any good boarding facility will go over all your horses needs.
    You will be able to see what all the other horses look like..well fed, water supply, feet, ect, the fences, run in shelters. Actually check the hay they offer too.

    If you do decide to buy your first horse and just turn it out to pasture to be horse with other horses for a while...keep riding and taking lessons on other horses. You can never stop learning. You will be in shape for the work you will have to do with your new horse.
    Mostly I'm looking at buying a young horse because he seems like he has a lot of potential and I'd be willing to wait for him to be ready. I'll definitely continue taking lessons and riding on schooling horses in the meantime, as well as working with my youngster on groundwork.
