I was just thinking I always wanted a horse. And I never got one until I could have my own job and looking back people would tell me
"It costs $500 a month to keep your horse" PER MONTH. Or "$300"
And truth is its not even CLOSE. I could of had a horse way back then if It wasnt for those people lol. Everyone would tell my parents such ridiculous prices and I waited around for a horse for about 9 years because of this..
It only costs about
$13 for grain per month
$45 for hay(dont need much got a really good feild of grass)
$15 for farrier every 7 weeks.
Vaccinations and floating only cost me about $100-$130 per year.
So feeding my horse costs about $696 per year.
Farrier $185 a year.
Then add vaccinations and floating to 120 per year.
Then I make all my fly sprays and such homemade and they work pretty good so I probably only spend about $15 on supplies for that per year.
And my horse is fat and healthy as can be? He's 15.2 quarter horse he's used for trails and barrel racing.
Water-Free I have a well.
And then I pay about $30 a month for horse insurance.
Right now Im keeping my horse on my friends dads property. Free
Im only spending about $87a month on my horse....-.-
I mean is this normal?
I live in central florida. And florida prices arnt exactly the cheapest.
