Hi Galadriel,
Thank you for a wonderful web site and forum !
We wish you well on your recovery from surgery and
hope you are feeling better!


Just a quick question. We purchased a small farm with
a 3 horse stable which is in good condition. We have no horses.
We have had a few people interested in keeping their
horse here, and they will provide the care/management.

I love horses, and have been riding since childhood
as a hobby. I do not have the background on the
care/feeding/health issues, but would love to learn.

My question is if you or other members have any
suggestions for folks new to boarding. Since the interested
individuals will provide the care (they are in our area),
I'm interested to learn more about what our role will be....

Thank You...

Zahra, boarding is much more complicated than it might seem--even when the boarders are providing all their own care, your responsibilities are endless. Jessica Jahiel has an excellent article on this topic:

Some of the article addresses the costs when the barn owner is providing the care and supplies, but there are also good comments about the overall costs and liabilities unrelated to the care.

Thank you so much for the informative article!

As I'm new to owning a farm, this article covered many
of my concerns...

Appreciate your reply!
