lol, Trinity that's amazing! Your friend now has an excuse for the fact that it was getting harder to mount xD we have a mare that was like that as well. She was super small as a 4 year old (14.1hh) even though she was never stunted or anything, and since she was a QH x ASB we just figured she got the shortness from her QH side and her gangly, narrowness from her ASB side. She was a total fluke under saddle, went psycho and pretty much tried to kill everyone that tried to tack her up- so we tossed her out in our pasture for a few years. We just brought her back this past summer though and I hardly recognized her O_o she's 7 now and darned if she isn't twice as wide and a good 5" tall than she was went we sent her out there! She's doing way better under saddle now too, no problems. I guess she was just telling us as a four year old that she was still growing and needed some time! LOL
Beemimom- aww, I wish so too. I keep scheming in my mind ways to keep her, but in my heart I know that I just can't. The absolute longest I would be able to keep her would probably be until I start college, which is only about 17 months away. Theres no way I can even support my miniature horse mare (as much as I hate to say it...she's my heart horse and it hurts to think I'll have to sell her) much less a growing baby while in college, since I'll be getting no financial support from my parents whatsoever. Kenzie would be about 2 3/4 years old at that point and probably still growing too, and I would probably have to move her to a stall boarding place, which I'd hate to do. I don't even want to do that to my mini mare, and she'd already be 6 1/2 by then. I'm just hoping and praying that the right person will come along to take her when the time comes for her to leave me, and that she'll get the life that she deserves. If she has that, I will be happy. Same for my mini mare, Sour. I think that me being selfish and keeping either one of them would only harm them in the long run. Either one of the occupations that I want will require a LOT of hard work on my part in college (especially with my disabilities) for anywhere from 5-8 years, and I wouldn't be able to give them the training or attention that they would need :/
Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
