I've found that the easiest way to save $$s in the horse world is to only buy 'low maintenance' horses. All our mares have simple diets (pasture/hay) and very good feet. Just those two characteristics will save you a ton of $$s at the feed store and with the vet and farrier.
If I'm looking at a horse to buy and see the owner is mixing 5 different feeds/supplements/etc or tells me that the horse has to be shod because of x/y/z (and I have nothing against shoeing a horse), I won't bother to look further.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
