The cost of owning a horse depends a lot of how much you can do yourself and how often you need a vet. We have our 3 mares here with us (no boarding costs), I trim myself (no farrier costs), and we give shots/wormers ourself. We normally only need the vet for the rabies shot (not allowed to do yourself here) and coggins test. Adding all the costs up for the year (including feed, hay, etc), we average about $6/day per horse.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
