Poppy - it's all tied together. When one price goes up, they all go up... my husband farms grain, hogs and chickens. If corn goes up, then livestock facilities (like theirs) will switch to a different grain, driving the price of that one up as well.

One great thing about Kevin working at that farm is I get my grain for free!

Oh I know it's all tied together. It was more of how the guy responded to my question. Which was not about why it went up, I know there's a drought, I watch the news lol but rather why 20%? Food prices are only predicted to go up around 5%, so 20 seemed rather extreme.

my BO includes grain, but its all stock feed so I just give it to my girl if I need to give her bute. Haha

BO also grows his own hay which is nice, except for right now ! He already had to go buy hay because the pasture got eaten down in JUNE. This crazy weather !

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~

I had one! In... October! But after that, nothing.

Do most of you guys have help from parents/partners/etc in paying for your horse(s)? Or do you do it on your own?

Haha Gypsy, I always said I hated winter and I would move out of Wisconsin as soon as I could.

Well, I did....to the twin cities metro....not exactly what I had in mind.

But last year was my first winter here and it spoiled me. Although I had just bought a new 4x4 SUV and got to use the 4x4 once!!! I was soooo disappointed in that.
