Happy New Year guys!

Does anyone have fireworks? I have some....

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

We have fireworks here in North Carolina. I was reading an equine emergency book and it says that there are tons of injuries to horses caused by fireworks. It said that there is a high risk of them breaking out of the field because there are scared or whatever. I had never thought about that before. Has anyone ever had any experiance with this?

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.

No. But then again my dad used to shoot off horseback(when we lived in CO), our horses live inbetween saw mills(and 2 of them used to work at them), and I have 4 little heathan siblings. So our horses usually get over themselves within a couple weeks with us =/

My first horse broke his water tub and broke out of his paddock on Fourth of July one year(for those non-Americans, there are TONS of fireworks on this day). Luckily he wasn't hurt and didn't run to far when he got out.

This past Fourth of July I was house-sitting for my aunt and uncle(the people who keep Sunny) and some of their friends were up fishing in the pond. I heard a knock on the door, and it was one of the fishers. He said, "I just wanted to let you know that the horses are running all around the pasture scared, I didn't know if you needed to put them up or anything."
I went to check on them, and they were going crazy. I think it was mainly Sun, because it was likely her first time to hear them(her first owners lived in the middle of nowhere). I think the other horses were running for fun.

Happy almost new year all!
I've never had any problems with the horses out here...for one thing fireworks in most of the areas where the horses are are prohibited. They are allowed all through town and suburban areas and such, so the horses do hear them but not super close and ultra loud. They seem to take it in stride, at least at my stable. The jumpy horses jump a little bit, but so far no big wrecks.
