Our farrier/trimmer charges $25 per trim, and my horse gets his hooves done anywhere from 6-10 weeks. All depends.
Grain isn't too bad.. $17 per bag of strategy for example. My horse eats very minimal grain. Doesn't need it. But I do know that an older horse may need more.
Spring shots are $150 per horse (including coggins), and checkups for mishaps and whatnot are about $80-120 depending on what happened (And then yes, of course when worse comes to worse and a horse totally injures himself and we have to pay $4567890 for a vet bill, we have means of paying for emergencies)
The hay price is reeeeally varying around here. Anywhere from $6-$9 per bale. I have 1 "pasture" set up, and I'm about to fence in another one so my horse can rotate. They're at least 1.5 acres each.
And then I'm not even going to worry about de-wormer.. That's only $10 and under
So I'm 99% sure we can afford this.. Just not sure if my mom is on the same page. I am going to get a job this summer as well (trainer offered me one) soo maybe that will help her feel easier about the money situation? I know it all depends on how much I get payed, but still.
Should I ask her about getting another horse? I'm honestly afraid she'll just shoot down the idea immediately.
