I have for about 5 yrs. now. I find it's great for desensitizing them LOL the grandkids would be out and the horses would line up around the trampoline with their heads moving up/down watching the kids! Saves me having to cut the grass too and I love to be able to walk out my door and they are right here. This year I fenced off an area where I actually want to grow grass LOL but they have the rest of the yard and down to our north pasture to graze. They also will line up and stare at the living room window when it gets close to supper time just to remind me not to forget LOL

I wish I could, but our property isn't fenced in and we share a driveway with our neighbors. I can see it now:

*Phone rings*


"Hey, it's ___ from next door. Think you could come get your horses off my back deck? The big one just ate my potted flowers and now he's sticking his head through the living room window."

Yeah. Let's not even try that.

Yup, he is pretty laid back would just walk over and watch quietly. He just loves my kids.
