plastic scoop or metal scoop?
plastic is about 1 lb.
metal is about 1-2 lbs.

If you fed the proper amount of grain given on the back of the bag a 50 lb bag of grain would typically last you 2 weeks.(at 4-5 lbs a day) So $50-70 a month in grain, depending on brand.

beet pulp is probably the same, I would assume.
I don’t feed this, so I don’t know how much monthly this would cost you. I’m thinking the same as the grain.

vet visit…so barn call is anywhere from $50-75
pills are $20 for 50 pills, $90 for 500 pills.
You probably got the 50 pills.
So total vet bill was probably $70-200. Depending on if your vet only charged you for your barn call and pills, or if he charged you for an actual diagnosis.
