How much does a Clydesdale horse cost?

If you're asking that question you can't afford one. The cheapest part of owning a horse is the initial purchase price. Once you have paid between $1500 and $5000 for the animal you will have a yearly vet bill for vaccines of around $200, every six weeks the horse will need his hooves trimmed at between $30 and $50 or $45 to $85 for horse shoes. Add to this $3-$5 a bale for hay and he will go through about 5 a week and $9-$23 a bag for horse feed, multiply that by 5 to 8 a month depending on how ways it is to keep weight on your horse, then if you have to pay a boarding facility to keep your horse for you depend on paying another $100- $350 a month. Then there's bedding, tack, supplements, clothing humans need to care for a horse like boots, and helmets, and clothes for cold weather, and buckets and brushes and other equipment for grooming and feeding and caring for your horse and your equipment.

If you really feel like you want a horse I recommend taking riding lessons first, it seems expensive but compared with the cost and timerequired to own a horse it's a lot more economical and allows you a chance to make sure that horse ownership really is right for you.
