No, this isn't a comment on the rains (in fact, we are in severe drought and are begging for the rains to come here).

I have seen ads for stalls in Florida for the season, and many of them quote a price for a "dry stall".

What is that? Is it just a stall, with no feed or care (meaning you have to bring your own feed, hay, bedding and stall cleaner person)?

Or is it a stall with full care but no training?

Or does it mean different things different places?

Means diffrent things in different places. But usually it's like "rough board". A boarder leases the stall and does all the care and provides all the feed/bedding as well as cleaning.

Here in So Cal a dry stall is just the stall. Feed, feeding, bedding and cleaning are not included.

Yup- use of a stall. Most times it includes use of the facilities as well (rings, tack room, turnout). It doesn't include any supplies or labor.

This - usually. I noticed that Courtney King is advertising for 5 "dry" stalls at her facility for next winter in Wellington @ $4,000/month (:eek:) Wow. But that, I'm guessing, is close to the going market down there.....

I believe Courtney's stalls are 4k for the season, which is not a bad price. Seasonal pricing seems to be more common since its easy to fill stalls for February and March, but harder in December, January and April.

JD99 - Your comment actually makes more sense! I'm guessing that I either mis-read or mis-remembered....at my advancing age, either is possible!!!!!!!!:yes:

That's what I suspected, but I just wasn't sure.
Thanks.

You know, truly those prices are just crazy. Makes showing in FL next to impossible.
