Its 375 a month for board, that includes boarding, farrier,vet,etc. But it doesn't include emergency vet visits for something like colic or thrush. I know that. Thanks for your concern on my safety kinetic, but i know what im betting into. Horses are 1ton creatures that can kill you. I know. Ive almost been trampled by one, ive been bitten, i even got kicked once!
I'm just going to say, that I think that price is a rip off. well, depending on where you live. But I normally pay around 100-150/horse, to be stalled and fed. 375/month, thats 4500/year, is a lot of money, more than I bet you'd spend going to a barn without the health stuff included and paying for them out of pocket. --Again this is probably depending on where you live, I live in ohio so horses are common, but when I lived in seattle prices were 100 higher than here.
Have you thought about leasing a horse? On dreamhorse.com they have a lot of people trying to lease out their horses normally, and all you'd have to pay for is the board and health stuff, sometimes they might charge a little per month for you to use them, but you can normally keep them on the person who owns it's property, or you can get an offsite lease. I actually have one of mine out on an off-site right now and its working very well
