Lease is more

EQUUS - - Letters -

I re­ally en­joyed “The Next Best Thing” (Back Page, EQUUS 448), about leas­ing. With th­ese tough eco­nomic times we all need to be cre­ative with our horses in or­der to keep go­ing, and leas­ing can be the per­fect op­tion. I have been leas­ing my brood­mares for the past few years with great suc­cess and it’s an­other di­rec­tion that horse own­ers should con­sider.

By leas­ing my mares, I get to share all of the an­tic­i­pa­tion of breed­ing and de­liv­er­ing the foals; my mares are sup­ported and even bring in a bit of in­come; and my “so­cial cir­cle” has con­sid­er­ably ex­panded with the num­ber of new peo­ple who have be­come part of the “fam­ily.” And, as an ex­tra bonus, I know that the foals be­ing cre­ated are truly wanted and not just be­ing bred for “the mar­ket.” Suzanne Eves Robeso­nia, Penn­syl­va­nia
