I have had my horses for bout 8 years. Have a farm and a 400 acre bug out location will be sufficient for their eating needs, which also takes care of the exercise. Yes, I have a yearling that our horses produced. Vet bills are not high if you know what you are doing, you can get most of the meds at the local feed store and keep refridgerated. Also have the barn, tack, etc. I have chickens and looking into pigs. I see that it lots of people could not have them, but in my case, I have the space and set up already. I was thinking, pack everything on the 2 to ride and back and pony the third one. I was considering a covered wagon, but I find that unrealistic for going over rivers, streams, hard terrain, etc. ideas??
