Hi! This may sound stupid but I am a complete novice when it comes to horses. I don't have any yet, but my family will be moving soon and we will have the opportunity to keep horses. I'm really just wondering what kind of expenses would be involved for the day to day keeping of one or two horses. Besides the barn, food, and shoes I'm kinda lost. Also, what kind of horse would you think would be best for me (age 18 ), and my step father (age 35) to learn how to ride and care for with. I was obviously thinking of an older horse but as I've said I'm really a newbie so any opinions are welcome. We will have approximately 1.5 acres (is this too small for a horse?) with a creek and lots of trees. Thank you!
