In my situation, if I had a horse that had to be on separate turnout, he would have to go in the drylot. That means free choice hay that wouldn't normally be thrown and extra labor to clean out paddock, fill and scrub water that I wouldn't normally be doing since I never use it. Hay is rediculously expensive in my area and that alone would be a huge cost.

Meds, how are you giving them? My pasture board doesn't include grain and is for really easy keepers. If you are having to give him grain to take the meds (if they don't dissolve or something) thats extra cost as well.
Agree, if solitary turnout creates more work, you should charge more. Or if it takes up a field that could hold several horses and you are thereby giving up income by only putting one horse in the field.
Meds are included in my board, so I would not charge more for them.
In my particular case, I probably would not charge extra as long as the layup was for a defined period of time (and probably 6 months or less) because I do have a field that could be used for solitary turn out now, but I wouldn't want to be locked into that for a year or more.
If I've got the space easily for a solo turnout, standard board.
If I've got to make an extra paddock or alter turnout for others in order to meet his needs, I start to think about charging a bit more, particularly in consideration of the 2X daily meds.
The deciding factor would be expected length of layup-- for a month to six weeks, we could handle it and would not change the standard board charges. Longer than that, and I'm going to have to charge for the time spent (for doctoring and disrupting the routine, which takes time out of my schedule).
