It's not as though I buy a bunch of ... things, instead, I think I spend a lot on their care. That's one area that I don't scrimp on. If they need medical attention of any kind, I tend to spring for it, and I spend a lot on preventative stuff. I also spend a chunk on feed which includes beet pulp and rice bran.
I know you spend a lot as well. You probably spend a lot more if you show at higher rated shows, but you might spend less if you have your horses at home, or if you don't show or travel.
As part of my New Year's resolution I'll post a monthly expenditure list. If it seems too personal, it feels REALLY personal to me, please feel free to skip it. If you're like me however, and like to get into the nuts and bolt of things, please feel free to study the numbers and compare them to your own. Are horses more expensive in California, or am I getting a good deal?
Here is what owning two horses cost me in the month of January ...
We're going to Pomona for the Horse Expo on Saturday. That will probably influence February's spending! I'll let you know on Leap Day.
