I do self care, but right now I'm half leasing my horse out so I'm only out half the week. I pay for everything, the only thing covered is the stall and run and feeding in the morning (we have to set it out in front of the stall).
My board is only $175 but all in all I probably end up paying $400 a month with hay, grain, supplements, wormers, hooves, etc.
I've been doing self care for two years now. These past three months are the only time I haven't been out there every day (besides vacations).
I LOVED being able to see my horse every day.
