Horse People

I want a horse. Maybe two. I got the space for them. Is there anything you could tell me in advice? Like start with the basics.
Well if you have the land, and plan on keeping them on the property- your going to have to look into building a run in shred, even if you live somewhere without seasons- it still rains, and they need somewhere to go to avoid the elements.

Fencing- really important.

Feeding- every morning- every night- If you end up building a stable your going to need to let them out in the mornings. They can't be cooped up.

Farrier- about every couple months they need to re-shoed- On that topic you have to clean their feet daily to avoid infection- crap, mud gets buried between the shoe and natural sole- so if you don't have the patience or courage to screw with a few ton horses legs- one that could kill you- don't get a horse.

I would board- depending on where you go they will do everything for you- clean stalls- feeding, and trails nearby. Alot of them have enclosed arenas- which is really nice if you live somewhere that snows- granted some of these nicer ones cost 1000+ a month for 1 horse-

My mom has boarded most of my life- she finally got a piece of property a few years ago.

On average she would spend 500-600- and she was on the ghetto plan which required her to provided her own hay, grain, and cleaning the stall herself.

Another issue with boarding is that all the horses get turned out together- so since your horse is the new horse- it's very likely the herd will make it the cookiemonster. Kicking, and biting the horse- so again it will need daily personal care for the atleast the first 6 months to address any of the wounds.

Then comes into play- transportation- if you plan on trail ridding you need a pick up and a horse trailer

Then comes into play where you buy the horse- most auctions the horses are totally drugged up to mask any injuries or aggressive personality traits.

Have you spent any time around horses? If not your going have to learn basic things- This isn't the movies, where you just throw a saddle on- even a simple task like putting on a bridle is made difficult when you a few ton beast swinging in your direction trying to bite you and butter.

Oh- and they sense fear. lol. So if your scared it could spook them- which is basically a term for when a horse goes completely ape butter.

seriously, you need to do a lot of research and/or go to stables and volunteer and learn the ropes so to speak - it's not like getting a dog or cat - they also need shelter and vet care and all that ...
