I was raised with horses along with all kinds of animals. I also rebuilt a barn with 14 stalls a couple years back. Did a lot of work for the family that owned it all. I love horses but here i NH if you want a horse you need to get a second job. If you had to board a horse its about $400 a month, then there is the vet, the tack, and they are always needing shoes. Its just expense here. I wish I could afford one. Good luck and oh yeah Quarter horses are the best.
