That has happened to me lately. Life is going pretty good, and then BAM! Things change. I won't say that it is necessarily a bad thing, but it definitely didn't start out a good thing.
Now I'm looking at some major life changes. Changing my internship, moving 3 hours away, selling my horse. The first two are up in the air, the last one, is unfortunately for sure.
But on the bright side, I have gotten my horse, Onyx, to a new boarding stable that is much better for both of us until he is sold. I am working with him daily to get him in better shape for his new owner. I am uncovering so much new potential and talent in him... I am wishing I could keep him. Like, for example, he has an AMAZING stop. He can almost do a sliding stop, from a full out canter. It's awesome.
I know someone will enjoy him, but dang I'm wishing that someone could still be me.
Oh well, thus is life right?
Anyone else out there have any stories about needing to sell their horse, even when they didn't want to, that turned out good? I need to be cheered up
