I have 6 horses and our first daughter is almost 5 months old. I have always known I wanted to be a Mum.
Not going to lie, it's not an easy thing. When I'm functioning on 2 hours sleep, bub has had a bad day and DH is away at work there are days where the last thing I want to do is go out and make sure the crew is fed and watered.
However, I probably would have completely gone insane if I had gotten rid of the horses before having our little girl. Sure I haven't ridden for a while, but just being able to go out and hang out with them for 10 minutes is a good break every once in a while.
Having said all that, like has been said, if you decide you don't want/have time for a horse you can sell it. That's not an option with kids so if you aren't certain that you want them, don't have them.
