Back in 2011 I posted this article on the cost of horse care. A lot of things have happened since then and costs have gone up.
I know I'm paying more for the farrier to trim my horse's hooves. The cost of hay and feed grains has gone up--in some places radically, thanks to drought conditions. Until recently, transportation was getting more and more expensive and this was reflected in almost everything we bought. How have the price feeds and items for your horse changed lately? How would you price hay, supplements, farrier services and other items and services for your horse. How should I change these costs to reflect what a new horse owner can expect today?
