I have the opportunity to purchase a rescued horse ( 8 yrs old) trained in cutting/barrel racing for $500. She is from Texas bloodlines and quite a looker. My fear is not the initial price, it's a steal...however, realistically, how much am I looking at???
Pasture board is $200, full board is $300, including grain. The farrier is $85/month or every other, depending upon how much they lose a shoe. Deworming is included--what else am I missing to help me make my decision??
I want to help rescue these animals but I want to know exactly what I am looking at to see if it is at all reasonable. My dh thinks we are out of our league on this one...help...can we do it or are we crazy?
