Kids are great de-spookers. Our horses are on our family farm with my brother's 5 kids. When I bring my 2 our there, it is crazy. Bikes are in and out of the shed, they run up and down the feeding area, they are screaming and jumping on the haybales. And then when we get the horses out, they are swinging on the playset, jumping on the trampalene, swimming....The trampalene is even close to the round pen. But when the kids moved out to the farm, they were city kids. They did not know what to do with the horses or what to watch for. The kids and the horses have finally come to live in harmony. It took the 7 kids and 10 horses 2 years to learn to live in harmony.
If it's worth keeping, it's worth taking care of.
