What if you could take the money you saved and pay for all your farrier expenses for when you need it the most? Rest assured that now you can. Once again revisit those goals and see what the best place to reinvest that money saved might be. For some it might mean an extra bag of grain, a new grooming tool, or if you've got a little more how about a down payment on a new saddle?
I understand the hardship in changing a routine and spending habit when you have horses. We all want to have the name brands for our horses but at the end of the day they don't care if the blanket says some fancy name, but we do. If you've found yourself missing meals to make sure you can pay for that state of the art saddle pad you know what I'm talking about. It's about spending and priorities. Breaking through the mindset that higher prices equal better quality ALL the time will help you hit your budget and goals. With that said, spend those pennies saved on things that matter TO YOUR HORSE. Here's the key: cut the right corners by paying attention to the horses needs.
