Until six years ago, I spent more on my dogs and cats than I ever spent on the horses because I rarely had vet bills for the horses.
That all changed when one horse was diagnosed with Equine Metabolic Syndrome in 2007.
A second horse was diagnosed with insulin resistance in 2010 and severely foundered in March, 2012.
I have four horses ages 17, 18, 25, 26+. I am retired and thankfully made a decent income all my life, as it is now safe to say all my S.S. Money goes to the horses
Mr. WTW still works because he's a Hypertensive Type A that doesn't know how to sit still - good thing because I frequently have subsidize barn expenses with his paycheck
Sooooo --- while I refuse to add everything up, it's safe to say I spend a BIG CHUNK OF CHANGE
