I’d like to know what the costs associated with horses are in the area. Farrier for barefoot and 2 shoes? Hay? Does the area support hay like alfalfa/orchardgrass or is it hauled in from a distance? How long is the grazing season? Is the soil sandy or? What kinds of grass are typically used for pasture? How many feed stores in the area? Any saddle shops?
I’ll probably need to rent somewhere to live and board my horses for a while, any recommendations there? I read some apartment reviews and they were pretty negative. I also realized that I need somewhere to park my car AND truck, which is not always available in apartments.
