"I am trying to convince my parents on getting me a horse or pony. Fjords are my number one breed, and they're good for beginner owners as well. (I heard) And since they don't need shoes and I would be able to do pasture board and rough board since I like taking care of horses. I wouldn't be doing a lot of shows since I need to get back into the basics. I remember a lot about riding but I haven't even stated jumping or dressage yet so right now it would be a pleasure horse for trail riding. Since I wouldn't need a blanket for the winter but will need some feed (where I live we have a lot of feed...That's mainly all we grow here!) how expensive would owning a Fjord be? People say that the breed doesn't make the horse cheaper but in this case I personally think it does. Fjords don't need shoes, winter jackets, love the pastures (so pasture board would be best.) and Colic and the other thing is rare in them. I would always groom and trim my pony and I'm 4 foot 11. My parents are mainly concerned about money. The vet and boarding will be the most expensive but I'm thinking of getting horse insurance as well, so do you think this would be a good beginner horse? Would it be a little bit cheaper than a thoroughbred or with horse insurance, without shoes, not doing shows, and would only need those yearly shots and deworming? (I'm thinking of giving shots by myself.)"
