horses and fire works

Ok it's the 4th of july and our town will be setting off fire works just down the street from our farm. Our pen by our barn has 6 ft cattle pannels all the way around it the horses will be in there tonight for safty reasons, just wondering what you guys do to prepare for the fire works and your horses?

Gracie usually just spooks at the first couple ones that go off. Then she's over it. But I usually just keep her in,just incase people shoot them off close and she hurts herself.

Our two get terrified when people set fireworks off. :roll:

So, I'll end up putting them in a bit earlier than usual tonight.

Rose noticed the noise, but she did fine and I don't think the others have noticed at all You can hear the fireworks, but they are a little ways away.

My girls don't seem to mind, I think they are fascinated by them when they can see them.
When I've had comp horses they've had to get used to them at Royals so they've been no hassle at all.

Charlie did much better than I thought he would. He just listened to them. I was prepared to stand out there with him all night, because usually he's a bit spooky. I just gave him extra hay to keep his mind away from running all over.
