Bones was worse than the horse you are looking at, he was 21 years old. I am lucky to work for the vet since my costs were a bit cheaper,but it was still expensive. I think it cost about $2,000 my cost in vet bills, worming, dental work, feed(senior feed at 14 pounds a day), blood work, (he was very anemic from starvation, which was his only issue, his owner was just not feeding him at all)blood builder, special baths because his skin was falling off, hay and the grass he was eating at our home. We did not have to pay board, thank goodness.
It took about 6 months for Bones to get back into ridable shape so his back would support a saddle with no bones showing, he was a sweetheart from day one.
