I have this all planned out as well :p
I'd like to have 3 horses of my own, all trained by me, one in Eventing, one in Hunters, and one in Jumpers. I would ride each 6 days a week, and their day off would be staggered - as in, they wouldn't all have Tuesday off. A might have Tues, B might have Wed., and C would get Thurs.
I'd also like to have 3 horses constantly in training. When I was done with one, I'd take another in. If I had 3, there would be no incomming. Since this isn't my job choice, I won't rely on it for income. It would pretty much be a paying hobby, that would give me a little bit of blow money :p
So, in all reality, 6 horses would be ideal for me. I currently have 3, used to have 4, and always thought 'one more would be really awesome!' So I was picturing 5, but one more wouldn't hurt ;) Given, all of my horses are in very, very good health. I have a friend that has just 1 horse, and that poor thing never gets taken care of. And she's the only one she has!! We have actually had to go in and take one of her horses because of neglect. We called local rescue, they said they were full. We said we'll keep it if you go and pick it up - don't associate our name. They obliged. We nursed the little guy (a Shetland) back to a healthy weight and nutrition, and he was rehomed. Mom didn't like him at all, and demanded he get out.
