Can anyone help me with the cost of keeping a horse please? I've got a husband who says it costs too much to keep one.
Here is my situation:
We have 100 acres of pasture, all fenced, with a couple of natural ponds, and lots of trees for shelter.
I am in Canada, and I don't know if costs are different here than in the US, but I'd appreciate any help with a simple financial breakdown.
I'm thinking of wintertime here when I'd have to give her/him hay, as well as farrier costs and any vet expenses that need to be done on a regular basis. Any other expenses that I'm not thinking of?
We don't have a barn, but the horse I wanted to get is used to being outside all the time.
I'd eventually want to build a shelter, but we won't talk about that right now. LOL
I just need the basic costs involved. Thanks in advance.
