    When I was a kid, my Dad told me not to get caught up with fast women

    He never told me about pretty mares.

    Barry, I vote for next door! She could freak out in her luxurious place 150 miles away, without you to calm her down! She calms down in your presence, & her moments of needing a calming presence are not going to vanish, due to her innate qualities. She could also founder on too much lush grass, which, with her build, is very possible! She could get hung up on a tree, run through a fence, with no one to find her for hours! The long trip in itself is not what I'd put her through at this time: she could colic on the way, or aggravate her ulcers!

    What's better about the luxe place anyway, than your nice next door arrangement with tough Welshies as her companions? Why take away the relationship between the two of you, if next door'd be fine?

    Northern, you have an uncanny knack in being able to point out the weaknesses in some of my ways of thinking. In this instance what you are saying is my biggest fear about sending DiDi off.

    Over the longer term DiDi is undoubtedly safer with my friends who are as has been said experienced horse people In the short term she has to renegotiate her place with two fresh horses and with two key humans.

    I admit there is a risk in sending her 150 miles away, but at the same time there are some longterm benefits for her. And I shall be able to retain a watching eye over her be it from a distance.

    But the final decision as to what to do, will not be made until Friday.

    BSMS. Magnificent!

    except perhaps:

    'slower horses, older women, mature wine and enough money.'

    Plus a few other things, the delights of which I have long forgotten.

    Folks, my day, my mind, my thinking is dominated by the question of what best to do about DiDi. In theory we have made a plan but constantly I am asking myself whether what we have planned for her is the best for her - as against what would suit me the best.

    Meanwhile I find I cannot write about her. The whole issue is all too painful.
    In the meantime please be patient. In due course I'll give you chapter and verse as to how things work out.

    I'm still slightly confused. Why can't DiDi go on holiday closer to home? She's a horse. So long as she has a big, grassy field and horsey friends, she'll be happy. If it is this stressful to send her to the other end of the country, surely there are other options nearby.

    Silver, It's complicated but if you look up EMPF - and then add in the risk of repeat ulceration - you'll see why I want her to go somewhere to someone who
    Has the right facilities and the knowledge and the temperament.

    If you could see her today repeatedly coughing, you'd understand my concerns.

    And for EMPF there is no cure - just a steady decline.
