Whoa! That comment just made me even more scared. I really hope you educate yourself before you even consider buying a horse.

Please don't get a horse until you learn the basics, this quote from you alone proves to me you are not ready for ownership, this is just silly. Know what else feral mustangs don't have? vet care, hoof care, someone to assist with difficult foalings, balanced diets, and know what else feral horses don't have? Long lifespans.

Speaking of this I just did a budget of owning 1 horse for a year. %12 grain, and alfalfa mixed hay. With lots of random essentials added in, it was close to $60,000 a year. For one horse. I probably missed alot of things aswell.

Something to think about.

I refuse to add my expenses up lol, I do not want to know. It just leaves a little at a time.

I really hope this is some kid playing make believe.

Wild horses have the whole prairie to roam and look for food, you will fence a horse in. So you'll have to supply a food source. No way around.
roundbales are cheaper but you'll have to look close at quality. If you have a bad roundbale, you're throwing away 800 lbs, a bad square only 50. So in case of questionable quality take squares.
As I said, get the best you can afford.

Alright, you have thousands of acres for you mustangs to forage through winter? And are you prepared to lose some of your mustangs during the winter? Because that is how they survived, only the hardiest survived & carried on to breed more hardy mustangs that could survive harsh conditions. We are talking domesticated horses locked up behinds fences depending on you to feed them. I just noticed you started several threads about this. I feel like an idiot for wasting my time responding like you were serious. Turn off the computer & go do your homework & clean up your room!

$60,000 for one horse every year? Shoot, I want to be a horse in your barn! I don't spend that on four! Holy cow!
