how much to you pay for boarding?
I'm in Southeastern Connecticut where the going rate is $475/month for an indoor stall, all day turnout, lots of hay and grain, and very good care. We have an outdoor (no lights) and an indoor arena. Worming, blanketing, shoeing, lessons are all extra.
I am so envious of all the low, low boarding that some folks have. I think you can probably find lower boards here in backyard barns, etc. I used to have my horses at home ... but the cost to feed/care for horses is so high, that I can't imagine that anyone is making too much money, even at $400+ per month. It's a labor of love, for sure!
