Ace80908, I would be boarding my mom's friend's horses who haven't been ridden in about three years. I would pretty much be getting two free horses; she would never come out to see them & she would give me the go-ahead to do what I please with them.
She was actually going to sell me her show mare a few years ago, but we didn't have the money.
It's actually a shame that she doesn't ride them, her show mare was an amazing girl, and now it's as if she's never been ridden.
Anyway, back to my point, I wouldn't have to dea lwith random people in my house as it would be a family friend who wouldn't come out to see them anyway as she doesn't have time for them.
Thank you for the advice though (:

I would make sure everything is written out... what happens if a horse gets hurt... what if your horse kicks and injures hers, or vice versa? Who pays the vet? What about shots, farrier, cleaning stalls, etc.

Sounds like you are excited to get them, and it may be a great situation... just make sure both parties have the same expectations and understanding.... just my opinion, and good luck

I would look at the prices for pasture boarding around your area.
If that is a wide range factor in location to help you out
If you want to start from scratch, I would total the cost of hay & grain
then I would add in an extra fee that you add to the above total for worming, shoeing/trimming, and vaccines
