I was really prepared. I mowed our pasture and moved the girls to the dry lot with run in. Fireworks are legal here and we live on a main road going to a popular camping lake. Its fairly common to see kids driving down the road throwing out firecrackers and shooting roman candles. I dont want the tall grass in pasture to catch fire so I mow it. Plus it makes it easier to see beer bottles that get thrown out. I think the girls are used to boomers with all the hunting that goes on around here, They were all laying down in the round pen (sand) when I went to check on them. My main concern is fire.

Well it rained on the 4th :( but we were able to get a few fireworks off, but not many people we doing it. The barn owner left Gem and Vega out and said if any fireworks started to go off, someone she knew (she went camping for the weekend) would bring them in.

Yesterday we set off more fireworks () and so did quite a few other people around us. I'm going to presume that Gem and Vega were left out.

They were fine when we saw them, so If anyone did set fireworks off, it didn't seem to bother them, from what we could tell.

We leave ours out, because that way the horses can in a sense, "run" from the fireworks where as when they're in their stalls they tend to feel trapped and freak out more. But thats just our barn.

mine go in, the stalls are there haven, they know they are safe there, they don't have to be alert when they are inside like they do when they are outside. My neighbors set off fireworks and there is less chance of something flying over and hitting the horse when they are in cause my pasture fence shares there property line fence

We leave our horses out. The pasture is big enough, they can get away easily enough if they decide to spook. I don't know how Tanner and Magic will do, but Ruby, Bandit, and Dante like to stand at the fenceline and watch. 2-Pak is usually hiding somewhere in the woods.
