Crazy as it is, that has crossed my mind, but I don't know, I'd feel like I was letting Sour down if I did that. I still love her and I love being around her, but I do thing she has accidently be put on the back burner for me just because she isn't as needy. That has caused her to be super witchy lately too, because before Kenzie I was driving her or working her 5-6 days a week, and she loves to work. That isn't her fault though, its mine. As soon as she's back in work she's always calmer again.
Because of her personality though, Sour just isn't a good candidate for sale, especially in the Houston market down here. When I first started working with her she was an absolute demon to work with, because she holds grudges and she holds them TIGHT. Its just who she is. She was laid down by a man who didn't know what he was doing as a one year old, and ever since then she's had all kinds of problems. I couldn't even touch her when I first took her on; much less halter her, bridle her, or drive her! She taught me all that I know about training more difficult horses and she's the horse that first gave me back my identity as a person. I was super depressed and had no self esteem before her. So I guess I feel like I owe her a good life now.
I always thought she was my heart horse too, because she is a 'one person only' type horse and she chose to put up with me. But Kenzie is making me wonder if I was right or not. Gahhhh, I don't know xD so many decisions. Minis have no market in my area, but the fact that she has been in parades and drives does help her. But as you said, she could NOT go with a home that had young inexperienced children. Maybe some that were my age or a little younger who have been around horses for a while, but that's even iffy.
I guess we'll just have to see where the road takes us.
I'll let you guys in on a little secret of mine though, and its a strange one. I actually prefer just being around the horses and working with them to riding. I like riding, don't get me wrong, but I find that my passion for it just isn't there. Its an enjoyable pass time, but I'd never want to compete or anything like that. I'd take a nice, long, 2-3 hour 'mosey along' trail ride over all of the fast paced stuff my friends enjoy. I absolutely love driving though. Maybe Kenzie would like to pull a cart? LOL. That would be a sight...scrawny little girl with a scrawny little Thoroughbred mare driving a buggy down the road ;)
Well, I'm about to head out to the farm. I WILL ask today. I have money, bill of sale, and 'A game' in hand. Wish me luck! I'll be back around 4 or so.
