My brother and I purchased two horses yesterday from a woman who no longer wanted to feed them. We were originally going to get a single horse for my brother, but when the offer for both horses came up we jumped on it. We paid $300 for the horses and this price included three bridles, three saddles, three saddle pads, and three saddle stands... and, of course, two horses.
I originally figured that the horses would look rough considering we were getting them at $150 a piece, but when we went to see them the other day I thought the looked wonderful. But here's where my dilemma comes in; we only built a single stall since we were only expecting a single horse. My uncle, who has boarded horses most of his life, told us to rotate the horses out of the stall during feeding time to make sure that each horse ate enough. Well, I was considering putting up a hook about thirty feet away to tie each horse while the other feeds. But then I run into the problem of the horses being incredibly impatient and wanting to eat at the same time. So I imagine I should just drop a couple handfuls of hay for her to eat while she's waiting on her feed.
What do you think?
