I mentioned we need sponsors for the horses. I have been in a bit of a quandary to say because the cost usually scares people away. So Mike and I recrunched the numbers and we came up with a number that might be easier to swallow.
The numbers we came up with are based on feed ONLY, no other additional costs such as vet, farrier, general maintenance (i.e., dewormer, etc.). But the feed bill the biggest chunk of my stress. So here it goes.
We actually have TWO categories. We have the horses that are easy keepers and only require hay (and a little alfalfa during the super cold snaps) and we have the hard keepers that require constant grain throughout the winter and less grain during the summer months to maintain their weight, along with the standard hay and alfalfa. Again, this does NOT include any other costs to maintain the horse.
Easy Keeper Feed Sponsorship - $500
Hard Keeper Feed Sponsorship - $1,000
