I have my horses on my own property. We have a herd of 4 in the pasture and two boxes and two yards, so in total our place could carry 8 if we were stabling/yarding.

Where I work, 18 is about the most for horses I actually feed, but then there are the horses in the big front pasture that don't get hay at all, and that pasture has a capacity of about 8... but it never has that many put in it because it's the "spelling" pasture. My boss puts her big gelding and her young TB mare in there, plus the two babies, a boarder's horse, and occasionally one of her other horses if someone is sore or just grumpy. Most I've seen in there was 7. So in total my boss's place can hold about 26 horses. More if she's stabling full time.

Why BB? Why is summer going to suck? The month of may and june suck because school is ending and everything is all stressful. But after that its awesome! Noooo school!!!!!!! I can't wait!

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

I think it's because she has nothing to do and nowhere to go all summer. That would stink... :(

My summer is rockin' though! I got a lot of money in tips today. Whooo! I am getting to go to the barn a lot, too. And I am going to pay for some extra lessons with tip money.

My Driver's ED is coming up this weekend, too!

I'm also really happy with how my horse is doing. I can ride her around in a halter now and still have good control.

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**

Not to be unsympathetic or anything, but BB, if I ditched ONCE, that would be my horses gone. ONCE. When I was still in school I had one that wasn't marketable at all. He would have been euthed. The other one would have been sold. Ditching is serious. Just sayin'.

I mean, yes. It's not like bb isn't asking for it, but we also know how her dad is.

Almond joy too answer your question, my barn hold upwards of 85 but right now we have some where around 70.
I love it, it means there is always someone that needs to be ridden. :)
