  1. Amy paid $ and said:

    I pay out about $250-$300 a month per horse @ five horses ranging from a mini to a 1400lb horse. Of course the mini (36″) eats about $75-$100 a month. Hay runs about $6-$8 per 40-50lb bale. A 50lb bag of better quality grain is $19.99. I feed 20-30lbs per horse of hay a day. 5-8lbs of grain per horse per day. Mostly depends on time of year, activity level, age and health of horse. Wouldn’t take a 15yr old horse on a 30mile trail ride if he hasn’t been conditioned to do so, right? I wouldn’t.
