Just to add my three cents. When my children were
very young, we had a time killing routine while my wife was shopping. The kids
would name an animal and I would tell them what it ate. When they said horses,
my reply was money. Fortunately this was based on observation and the experience
of others not personal experience. Most horse owners I have talked to about this
have agreed with me.

However, in the interest of a comprehensive
answer, I'm adding to this post a portion of previously communicated, off list
treatise addressing maintenance costs.
Well, haven't owned so
very many horses at once. Been horseless for about 5 years now but ain't never
gonna be happy this way. Too, I rarely let reality get in the way of my
illusions. Find horses a lot like wives. More than one is kinda hard to
handle. They both train you and not vice versa. Maintenance cost for either is
about the same.
Some here say you ain't a real cowboy if you can't shoe
