Horses are actually not as inexpensive here as they are elsewhere. Rarely do you find even an unbroke, unregistered horse for under $1000. Usually the ones under $1000 are really old or really young or have serious issues.
As for hay, last time I checked the price of hay, we were at $20/bale for a 120# 3-string bale of alfalfa, $21 for a 3-string bale of Bermuda grass, and $23 for a 90# 2-string bale of timothy. Posted via Mobile Device
That's the only one I could find.... Hay here is $25 for Alfalfa (120 lb), $24 Alfalfa/grass (120 lb), $22 for grass hay (100 lb)- they don't say what type of grass hay. It's fantastic hay and the only horse quality hay.
