Buying a HorseAuthor: Nosfer | Filed under: Horses
Buying a horse is a very big decision and many things need to be taken into consideration. If you wish to use your own land you will need at least two acres. You will need to have the land properly fenced off, if you choose to have a wooden fence it must be sturdy. Some electric fences are sturdy enough they can even hold a horses weight when the power is off. Wire fences are not good as the horse can get tangled in them. Obviously barbed wire fence are out of the question.
But an easier option is to rent a stable that you go to each day to feed, clean and exercise your horse, or have someone do it for you but this will cost considerably more.
Horses are expensive and time consuming but very rewarding, never underestimate the time, energy and love you need to give to take care of these beautiful creatures.
