This January was by far the cheapest month of horse ownership that I've ever had, especially if you exclude the cost to repair my truck (I didn't). I didn't have any vet bills, and I didn't go to any shows. Because of the weather and Speedy's recent lameness, I only took one lesson with Chemaine. I had budgeted $400 in lessons, so that money went into my savings account.
I did purchase some new riding boots, but the money for those came out of Christmas cash. I also bought Izzy new DSB boots and a Weatherbeeta pad, but those were paid for with a gift card from my mom. The breeches and socks I bought over the weekend were also purchased using a gift card, so they don't show up either.
Outside of my truck's repair work, basic board and feed was where I spent the bulk of my money. Isn't that the way it's supposed to be?
