Is it profitable? Probably not, but there are other reasons you might do it.

If you have a single horse, and you don't want it to be alone, you could board another horse or two with little to no additional effort, especially if you're only offering partial or self-care.

Losses can be reported on your taxes to help offset your main source of income.

If you are just going to keep a few horses for a friend, you may only need a permit to keep more than the "allowed" number of horses.
Leave business lingo out of it.
Depends on you location.

Where im at there is no permits, I could have 10 horse on my property. I don't have to worry about my neigbors complaining. They all have horses. And no disposal fee. We spread it on feilds. We are a bit country were I live.

I think this is really a business question, and should be answered in a business-like manner...

IOW - you need to sit down and tally up ALL your expenses. Insurance. Property taxes. Water bills. Cost to maintain fencing. Etc

Then you will see immediately whether the $75 per month is covering your expenses or if those couple of horses are actually costing YOU.

Just off the top of my head, I'm betting the $75 per month comes up a tad short...

But let us know what your figures say!

California does not have laws that protect the property owner. Which sucks.
Any person that owns a horse and boards it, and then gets hurt and sues the land owner should be banned from ever touching a horse again. And if they do be fined !!. If you have close neighbors be sure to keep the poo hauled off once a week. You have to pay for conditional use permits in some areas of California to board horses.

This would fall under hobby loss. If you have a farm business you must file under such, and must show a profit once every five years. You could be subject to an audit and having to repay money with interest.. be very careful and consult a tax expert.
