OP....we have our 4 horses on our property and have now for 11 years. I admit, when we first got them here, I was a bag of nerves, going out to check them every few hours, every noise had me running out the noise, if they were laying down my first thought was colic. But...as you begin to see they are happy and content, you will calm down and you will enjoy it immensely.
I love having them at our farm because I can sit on the front porch and watch them while I enjoy a cup of coffee, I can go out and pet them at the fence if I am tired or had a bad day, if something is wrong they are with me and I can monitor them instead of calling the barn owner or worrying myself. When they lay down to sleep, or content to eat on the round bale, I can simply watch them being horses, and that is a great thing to having them at your home.
