I'm in Boulder, Colorado likely to be relocating to the golden area in the next month or so. In colorado unless your horse is on several dozen acres you won't find much grazing (in most cases). Though I did (in boulder) have my filly on enough pasture during the summer/early fall that she didn't need to be fed grass to maintain weight. Personally, I'm not going to spend 600+ to board my horse, that's ridiculous IMO... I have a family friend who lives and owns a facility near JEFCO county fair grounds (literally across the street) and a few miles from the school of mines. I'm going to see into it, if you would like once I speak to them about boarding, I could give you some contact info...
My boyfriend's attending school of mines! Contact info would be great!
