My name is Rachel, and you probably met me on Instagram @Nantucket_Blue. My eldest horse, Tucker, has been my best friend since 2007. His "show name" that was written on the boarding contract where he was abandoned was Nantucket Blue, and so when we joined Instagram back when filters were all the rage, that was the name I chose. Over the years, we adopted his little brother Trubee, and then most recently we brought in our mustang mare Adee. I live with this lovely trio on some land where we rent a barn and a literal tiny home with my human partner, Brian.
Brian & I are the types of people who have a spreadsheet for EVERYTHING, and budgeting has been an essential part of our survival. We track everything with the horses! Since they have hay 24/7, we even weigh what they eat daily so we can have accurate projections to budget for hay each month. When we realized that not everyone knows how to accomplish such a budget, we made our spreadsheet more user-friendly to share with friends. Then we realized that people needed more context and breakdowns, which is how this e-book was born!
