I have a mini horse, 2 ponies, a mini donkey, and 3 regular sized horses. My husband and I both ride (and are now getting into driving) and we both work full time to support our hobby.
To me trying to support six horses on two part time job wages sounds like it could be quite the stretch. More costs in feed, hoof care, and vaccines. Not to mention potential emergencies or health issues. Trust me, finding yourself with too many horses than you can handle - either with time or finances - is not a good place to be. If you do seriously consider this I would highly recommend budgeting out what it would cost and make sure you can afford it without making yourself too tight.
Also, you sold him the first time for a reason. What was it?
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
