How much in horse supplies?
For diffrent reasons Im thinking about moveing barns, a local place has said $x a month (pretty cheap) and by own bedding & feed. Place takes good care of horses & has everything I want.
Ok, so now how much will this cost me, I have a teenager QH about 1100 lbs, I guess.
Bedding-in 12/out 12 weather allowing--Im thinking 2 bags of shavings/pellets a week, about $50
Hay --$6 a ~40 lb grass/mix bale, probably use 20 bales a month, about $120
Senior feed-hes in medium work esp once warm weather hits, so ~3 50 lb bags a month, about $60
(I could do less grain & by hay pellets or cubes but hes in good weight and condition the way he is, I would keep going with that.)
Am I pretty close in amounts of stuff-bedding, hay, feed? I know prices can change or be different where you are but Im just wondering if I can afford to move him.
