Yup, we moved two years ago to a place where we could keep horses at home. I don't regret it at all. It's hard work and I've never had more than one before. We now have three and a foal! The responsibility is daunting but it's amazing to be able to walk out of your own back door and see your own horses grazing happily in your own fields. Wouldn't change it for the world.
Edited to add, judging by what you're doing, you probably are in your dotage. I'm sure that's what made me do it.
