Don't even get me started on the creepers that roam the earth these days either. If you have a stroller I would just get them out and prepper and strapped in the stroller while you tend to the horse. Maybe while you have them there you can start to teach them how to act around horses, what to do and what not to do? My daughter is 5 and I am still working on the whole responsibility thing around our horses. But it is never to early to start.
Yeah I know, it's crazy these days, I had a friend leave thier baby in the car while they took thier 2 yr old to play in the park and the parking lot was not line of sight!!!
That's what I want to do with my kids, start teaching them about safety and how to behave around horses, but if I don't ever take them out there it's never going to happen. I was around horses since I was a baby and showing lead line before I can't barely remember, toted around to horse shows, peed in horse trailers and took a bath in buckets lol!!!
