My horse lives with a herd of 11 others (mostly geldings and 2 mares) in 37 acres large pastures, which are divided in several separate fields that are switched throughout the grass season. They graze and roam there freely 24/7, have lots of various terrain, a river as a water source, lots of trees for shade, and also access to three large shelters to hide from bugs.
At winter they are moved to a 9 acres large winter field with access to the same shelters, a large hay feeder (access to hay is also unlimited 24/7), an automatic waterer with warm water and also haynets are distributed around the forest so that they are motivated to move around more. Saltlicks are freely placed around both the summer and the winter fields.
They live under full care (that includes feeding, checking for any issues, fencing and mucking) of the BO during working days and partial care (we feed, help out with mucking and repairing fences if needed) during weekends, and are fed full grain oats once a day, with supplements of the owners' choice.
We have an outside dressage arena with good footing and floodlights for dark evenings and very vast territory for trailriding, but I'd love to have an indoor arena, too, as the weather can be very harsh during winters here. I'd also like to have at least a couple of separate stalls in case a horse needs to be stalled for medical reasons, and one more shelter, because the current amount seems a bit smallish for the size of our herd.
I pay 150$/95 GBP a month + 20$/10 GPB for the trimmer.
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
