When a horse eats hay we can see the trail of dollar signs that stay within a community.
First, let's follow the path of hay from hay seed to horse!
A farmer uses his vehicle to go to feed / farm store to purchase hay seed, fertilizer, etc. Farmer than uses his equipment, that he purchased locally prior to planting, to prepare the land for the seed.
Farmer tills the land and plants the hay seed and fertilizes it.
After growing and reaching maturity the farmer cuts, rakes, fluffs, and bales his hay, then loads up and takes back to storage area. Farmer than puts ad in paper or online, etc to sell the hay.
Horse owner purchases hay to feed horse. Horse eats hay, produces manure, mushroom farmers and others pick up / purchase manure for good, organic fertilizer.
Now, let's look at the dollars spent directly in the community where horse lives: money was spent in the community for - gas, diesel fuel, seed, fertilizer, tractor, haying equipment, baling equipment, electricity, baling twine, workers to help, and many other things to numerous to list here (we want our readers awake lol).
This is for just ONE equine need - I could spend the next week listing how horses contribute to the economy but it will take me just 5 seconds to say this...
A dead horse STOPS contributing to the economy.
