You need to make sure that the horse is well behaved around children.

When you raise a baby horse, you want to make sure that your horse is not going to be aggressive towards the kids. You want him/her to be comfortable around children and not react negatively when they are around it. If the horse is too skittish, he/she might run away from the kids when they come near.

You also want to make sure that the horse will not get spooked if a child tries to climb on top of him/her or ride him/her without any training. This can cause serious injuries or even death in some cases if they fall off while trying get on top of it without preparation.

You need to make sure that your child knows how important it is for them to respect all animals before attempting this activity with their new pet because horses can sometimes become dangerous if they feel threatened by someone who may have scared them before

The horse needs good nutrition.

It’s important to give your horse a proper diet, so that they can grow up to be healthy and strong. The right nutrition will help them develop properly, and keep them free from the many diseases that can affect horses.

Some things you should never feed your horse include:

  • Sugary foods or drinks (like soda)
  • Raw meat or fish scraps
  • Chocolate
  • Coffee grounds

You want to get a baby horse that is about 2-4 months old.

When you are looking for a baby horse, there are a few things to consider. Horses are born in the spring or summer and they wean at 4-8 months of age. They become mature at 4-5 years old and can live up to 30 years old. The gestation period for horses is 11 months.

It is important to plan ahead when buying a horse because it may take some time before you can ride your new pet! If you want to get started with riding as soon as possible, then look into other options like ponies or miniature horses which have shorter strides than full sized horses and may be more appropriate for children who are just learning how to ride.

Horses need lots of space to run around.

You should have plenty of space for your horse to run around. Horses need a lot of room to run, and it’s important for their health and well-being. A pasture is the best place for them to be able to do this, but you’ll need to make sure that there are no hazards nearby—for example, if you’re going to keep it in your backyard, be sure that there aren’t any trees or fences that could fall on top of them! You can also use a fence just like with other kinds of animals such as dogs or cats; however this isn’t always the most effective way because horses are very smart and may find ways around it (plus it’s not very safe). You should also have some kind of shelter so they don’t get too hot during summer months which could lead up into heat stroke or even death if not treated immediately after noticing symptoms such as weakness/nausea/vomiting etcetera….

Make sure you have a stable.

A stable is a building in which livestock, especially horses, are kept. It most commonly means a building that is divided into separate stalls for individual animals. There are many different types of stables in use today, which are tailored to different species and different types of animal husbandry. Stables can be built as field barns or equine centers with combined sleeping quarters and training areas for farriers, saddlers, and grooms; they may provide veterinary treatment by having an attached veterinarian’s office; they may include sales areas or tack shops where owners can buy supplies such as food, clothing and equipment for their animals; some stables offer lessons or training on horseback riding (known as “horsemanship”).

A typical set-up might look like this: each horse has its own stall with access through an opening at the front (or head). The stalls have solid sides so that horses cannot see one another easily from inside – this prevents fighting amongst herd members

Make sure you have enough time to raise your horse.

It is a lot of work to raise a baby horse. You will have to clean the horse, bathe the horse, brush the horse and feed the horse. It will take about 30 minutes for you to do all of this every day.

Make sure that you have enough time in your life before you decide to raise a baby horse!

Make sure you have enough money for the vet and food etc…

It’s important to know what it will cost to raise a horse. The first thing you’ll need is pet insurance. Most vets do not accept credit cards, and they may require cash or check on the spot. If you don’t have enough money on hand, chances are that your vet won’t treat your horse until they get paid. Also remember that there are other expenses besides the vet bill: feed, bedding and fencing can add up quickly too!

It is helpful if both parents in the household are involved with the care of the horse.

  • It is helpful if both parents in the household are involved with the care of the horse.
  • Having both parents involved in your horse’s upbringing will help ensure that you can maintain this relationship for a long time.
  • It is important for both parents to be involved with all aspects of the horse’s upbringing, not just one parent delegating responsibility to another.
  • Parental involvement is critical in the early stages of the horse’s life, but it also continues as they grow older and more independent.

There are many things to think about before adopting a baby horse

If you don’t know anything about horses and are thinking of adopting one, there are many things to think about. You can easily get a puppy instead! They need lots of training and care too, but it’s not as expensive or time consuming as raising a horse.

For example: If your new baby horse has come into your home on a hot summer day, he will need an air conditioned stable with plenty of hay in order to stay cool and healthy. This can cost upwards of $1 million dollars! And once you have bought all this equipment for your horse, remember that it takes years before he’ll be ready for riding or even working at all (if ever). So if you’re planning on breeding him when he’s old enough because he’s so handsomely-groomed—you may have some regrets later when the bills come due!
