    Being Realistic?

    Was just wondering some of your opinions out there. I currently board my horse about 15 minutes away paying about 400 a month for full board. On top of boarding my horse I pay about 500 a month for rent. My boyfriend and I have been looking at houses in the area. I've stumbled on quite a few under 120K that have at least 2 acres of land. I just got pre-qualified with a lender since I found a small cape house with 4.5 acres that I liked which is listed at 99K. I am thinking of making an offer of 85K and my payments would be in the low 400s. Was wondering if people actually save a lot more keeping their horse(s) at home? I understand the other costs of having a home and the work associated with keeping him there....Would it be worth my while to put an offer in on this home? Any insight would be appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    Yes you will save money, $400 around here is rediculis unless your horse is in training or at a fancy pants barn.with my hard keeper I pay $150 a month on feed then $200 for the padock. It's self board and I can keep up to 3 horses at a time in the padock and I have 2 stalls.
