    Well, im not boarding Bear yet, but I will just do that, as it is easier to add up and such. Board is full care.

    Board for the month: $450
    Board for the year: $5400

    Shoes all the way around for the month: $110 (I think)
    Shoes all the way around for the year: $1320

    Supplements for six months: $550 (roughly)
    Supplements for the year: $1100 (roughly)

    Grooming supplies for six months (including items for showing): $300
    Grooming supplies for the year (including items for showing): $600

    Shots and overall check every six months: $500 (guessing)
    Shots and overall check for the year: $1000 (guessing)
    Teeth for the year: $400 (guessing)

    Plus another $1000 for tack and such.

    Here are my annual horsey costs. ;)

    Boarding (lessons and worming included) - $2,400
    Farrier (fronts only, six week schedule) - $544
    Annual shots - $100 (I think)
    Teeth floating - $200
    Shows (two) - $400 (estimated as trailering fees vary with amount of horses in the trailer and if we have to stay the night at the showgrounds)
    TOTAL = $3,644
    This is not including buying carrots, tack, fly spray, and etc.

    I work off most of my board, which is why it's so low. My parents pay for the rest of the board and the farrier. I pay vet expenses and we try to share showing costs.

    I board my mare, but it's different where as I only pay for my share of the hay. Which from Aug '09 to June '10 is ~$635

    I also pay for a bag of grain every so often (everyone who boards there takes turns buying a bag) $5.60 every few months

    Athena trims - $25 / every 8 wks $175/yr

    Shots - $80 /once a year

    Wormer - average $10 /every other month $60/ yr

    Sho-Glo Vitamin Supplement - $12 /every month $144/ yr

    Omega Horseshine - $40 /every 2 months or so $240/ yr

    I have it pretty cheap compared to some.

    Board: Free they are in my backyard
    Water:$30 a month $360/year
    Farrier for 4: $100 every 6-8 weeks $900
    Vet: Shots and coggins $400
    Teeth Float: $150
    Hay: $300 about every 2 months $1800/ year
    Feed: $12.99/bag 2 bags every 2 weeks $337/ year

    Wow, reading this post makes me extremely glad that I am who I am and live where I do. No board, no training (do it ourselves), no shows, no farrier (there is one in the family), we do our own shots so we only pay the cost of the shot and it is fairly cheap maybe $150 a year for the whole herd, horses don't see a vet except every couple of years for dental work and in an emergency. They don't get any special feed, just alfalfa hay; though it went up to about $150 a ton. That's what eats us alive: 12 animals with free choice to the feed costs about $1000 a month, more in the winter. We have got tack running out our ears so I don't have to buy anything unless I just want to. Even if they do need a vet visit, our vets here are pretty cheap ($197 to geld a 2000 pound stud and update all his shots).

    So for our herd of 12, I would say the cost is at minimum $12,150 a year. So that averages out to about $1015 per year per horse.
