    :tears: I just sold my horse. I trained that horse----she bucked me off, trampled me, made me chase her around the pastures for hours on end every year, and now when she finally beginning to be the horse I always wanted . . . .I had to sell her. . . omgosh, I am just so sad. . . I'm going to go cry now. :tears:

    I am sorry that you had to sell her, but one day you can get that "perfect" horse back.

    I am in the same boat - I may have to give up my paint mare that I love so much because of some life changes (that I would not change for the world) but it is not fair to her to keep her penned for another year without going to training.

    Keep your chin up - :hug:

    thanks. :grouphug: . I have to sell her because we are moving. She's going to go to a fourteen year old girl who competes in endurance races, so I think Jinah will be very happy there. Knowing she'll be well taken care of makes me feel better, but . . . . .it still hurts. :sigh:

    I know exactly how you feel--I was in a similar situation when I was about your age...It's like losing a best friend. I still get sad thinking about it...you just have to hope the best for them and move on... :hug:

    So very sorry Talitha, I can't even imagine what you're going through. It's good to know she's going someplace she'll be "well taken care of", but you are right that doesn't stop the hurt. Many :hug: for you.
