We've got a reject from the glue factory, but it sorta looks like a mare. We have it on pasture and usually have good grass 9 months out of the year here. It isn't cheap, but not real expensive either. Honestly, I'd give her away if it wasn't for the fact my wife and daughter love her to pieces. I'm the only one who rides and I haven't been on her in over a year. We buy our feed bulk from the local co-op feed store, sweet feed custom mixed for horses, cost about $300.00 per ton. We feed a couple of tons a year. In the winter she gets three large scoops twice a day and all the hay she wants and in the summer two scoops once a day and pasture. Spring and fall is somewhere between those two extremes. I also buy a few barrels of oats for the winter, give her a scoop a day. Hay is about $4.00 a square bale for good coastal bermuda and mixed grass hay. I buy a hundred bales a year usually, but sometimes we have goats or other critters eatting hay and might use as much as 150 bales. The barn, fencing and such we already had, so no expense there. Vet bills are as needed, the week after we got her she was spooked by a train, ran through a fence and wound up with a $600.00 vet bill. I worm her once a year myself and trim her hooves myself. I do pay to have them professionally trimmed twice a year, usually around $80.00 each time. We don't shoe her as she isn't being rode. I think we probably average around $100.00 to $150.00 per month for her, but we live in a very cheap area of the country too. Plus many years I can trade labor for hay, I even traded a goat for her hoof trim once.
