That is more proof that KEEPing horses in some areas is not cheap.

True. Forget about having enough cash to breed horses when hay is simply astronomical these days.

Around here is does not cost that much to keep a horse. About $300-$350/year/horse.

Wish I lived where you are, NRHA. My mare is costing me that amount per month right now with her supplements, alfalfa, and feed, lol.

Not bad here either, I live on 12 acres,graze all spring/summer/some of the autum. I can still get good Timothy bales for $80/ton if I get it out of the field $90/ton out of th barn. Don't gasp but my vet does ranch calls for $50. Had my Gelding's teeth floated and a wolf tooth out, sedated total was $60. Granted the Vet is new to the area and trying to build a clientele but it's still that price after a year so I'm enjoying. Farrier charges $25/trim $55/standard shoes. I also have a young man that does my first rides for $25/hr since I am too old and wise to climb on the little tornados anymore...
Also got a free lease on a broodmare and a too low to tell breed fee on a Dash For Cash sired stallion (pasture breed no mare care) does this sound like braggin? I'm not tryin to, it is still an expensive hobby and disaster can strike and rack up th bills quick, but with the right situation it can be as reasonable as many other hobbies...

My Vet and Farrier are currently splitting my childeren's inheritance.

I opted for live cover as I have been warned by most of the people I know where I live not to do AI with any of the local vets.

Stud fee: 750
Mare Care about: 300 (12 a day)

So right now I am looking at 1050 so far and crossing my fingers she took. However on the other side of the fence. My mare broke a very nice welded gate that cost 320. She injured the stallion the vet had to check him for internal bleeding that cost about 500 from what I was told. So I really don't think they made any money breeding her.

Nothing about horses is cheap, or free lol. The stud fee for the stallion we bred our mare to was 650 (his intro price, we lucked out!)... But she didn't catch so we brought her back for longer and paid mare care which was cheap, 75.00... She didn't catch still and before we could bring her back we pulled her from breeding for health issues. Our next step would have been bringing her to the vet for heat detection and a flush, the step after that would have been AI. I can't imagine what that all would have cost. It still would have been worth it in the end tho
