On a scale of 1(one being easy) to 10(ten being very difficult) How would you rate caring for your own horse?

For me that's a seasonal answer. 1 in the Summer and 5ish in the Winter. That's assuming there are no injuries or illness to deal with.

Which one do you enjoy more-Owning on your own property,boarding, or leasing?

My horses live on my Mother in law's farm so I am fortunate, I do not have to board. I would find boarding very stressful and worrisome, I don't trust anyone to take care of my babies except for me.

Could you not live without your horse?

I could live without them, but there would be a huge gaping hole in my heart that nothing else could fill.

Is your horse your BFF? lol

lol.. all my animals are my BFF's, I have a total of 9 pets (including my 2 horses) and I love and care for all of them equally.

Does the time of owning and caring for a horse pull you away from awesome opportunities?

Yep, but it's worth it

Do you ever regret purchasing your horse?

Only on the days that he's being a huge jerk, then I look into those huge brown eyes and fall in love all over again.

Are they worth everything you have given up?

And then some :)

Does owning a horse pile on more stress? Or is it the thing that takes stress away and helps you get through the day?

It does both. I stress about their health, I stress about the financial strain, I stress about the pastures/fences, I stress about all the chores that need to get done on the days that I'm not up for it, but my peace, my solace, my escape... the place I go to re-energize my soul is to my horses.
