When people find out that I own horses I often times hear “That’s so cool. I’ve always wanted to have horses.” In reality owning horses is really cool and rewarding. Horses are fascinating animals who have unique personalities, behaviors, and habits. Additionally, they are exceptional athletes and have the ability to build very strong bonds between them and their owner, but there is a lot more work involved in caring for horses than most people think. Normally, the first thing most people think about is the cost of purchasing the horse, but that should be one of the last considerations because once the horse is purchased where will it be kept, what will it be fed, how will it be transported, how do you keep it healthy, and what will the horse’s job be? The first consideration should be where the horse will live.
