Seperation Anxiety :(

Ok so I just found out today that I'm going to be moving to Pennsylvania in the fall and I'm not going to be able to take my horses. And i'm ALREADY having seperation anxiety about leavin my baby girl (Rain) I love that horse to death and idk what I'm going to do without her for a whole year! Is it normal to start having seperation anxiety already? I mean I don't even leave until September that's like 3months away (closer then I thought) sorry bout the vent/rant I'm just nervous 'cause I'm goin' to a place I've never been with people I don't know and I'm leaving my horse and I'm just scared/sad/happy/anxious.

Ok i'm done lol

I'd be freaking out. I don't like being a day away from my boy. Is there no way you can take her?

I could if I was rich but I don't have the money to take her (cause i'd have to pay for board and feed while she's there) so I have to leave her with my parents :( but the good thing is that when I come back I will know how to train her and she will be old enough to be trained :) that is if I don't die without her lol jk maybe i'll be able to get a job while i'm there and I will be able to have my parents bring her to me.

It sounds like it will turn out just fine. She is going to be left with loving, caring family and you know you will be getting regular updates

It sounds great that she is so young because she is going to have that year off to be a baby before starting some serious work.

Both of you guys will do great! Are you excited about your move?

You will do ok after you get there and settle in.
Maybe you can find a horse in Pa. That will keep
You company while you are away from yours.

I looked at your website. You have some nice horses.

You'll find that once you are settled and you start getting busy with your temporary move to PA, time will just fly. It's great news to know you are able to keep your horse with family and not forced to sell.

You'll do just fine, keep busy and your horse will do well on time off, and get fat
