I would say that's completely reasonable. I'm in Ny and pay $250 per horse for pasture self care......

I think you are making things too complicated. Do you trust them ro clean to your standards or will it accumulate until Sat? Do you trust them to put down enough bedding to protect the dirt floor? Do all of it or none of it.

Too complicated? I don't think so :)

If they don't clean to my standards, I'll talk to them about it. Doesn't have to be a big deal. Just as long as the poop it covered and pee areas are kept dry, it's OK. Also I do the bedding and clean stalls for semi-self care, like I stated earlier.

Those rates are very reasonable!
Some places where I live charge $200 for self care and you must provide feed, it's crazy! Luckily I found full care board for just $130 a month. :)

Thanks :) I wanted them to be fairly cheap because I *know* what it's like being late on board because of how ridiculously expensive it is, haha. I just thought I'd cut folks a break, plus we're a small family farm just *beginning* to get some business. Things always have to start out small and slow.

I like your thinking! I can't even count the number of times that I have been late on boarding, even when prices are lower it can be rough some times. Some places where I live charge $450 for full boarding, I am like who in their right mind can afford those kinda prices?! Haha. But it sounds like with the low prices that you have that you will bring in a lot of customers. :)
