I have 5 kids, my oldest is 9 and my youngest is 13 mos. We also have a siberian husky (age 2) a golden doodle (age 8) 2 cats and a 9 year old horse.
Our house is full. But fun. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
I grew up riding. I learned on a shetland pony named Shorty (shocker) and then progressed I eventually rode 3 day eventing and completed to 3rd level dressage. I would love to adopt another horse, our house is not complete without them.
