    bye byeeee =[

    So I'm leaving for college in like... 1 1/2 months. And I'm going about 3 hours away so I can't come home that often to see my horse. I can hardly think about leaving without crying because I don't wanna leave her. My dad and my younger sister are going to take care of her, so I know she'll be ok. Its just selfishness that wants her to be mine still. And I've always been really protectice of her, even with my family because I know the most about horses in my family. I worked really really hard for 4 years to show my parents how much I wanted a horse, and now my sister is just going to get one for nothing bascially....Ugh. She's kinda a difficult horse to ride, and my sister is having some problems with her right now. Seriously, I don't even know what I'm going to do the last time I see her before I leave. And I know I'll be home every once and a while, it just won't be the same. I'm about crying now writing this...haha. Anyone else in the same boat/been in this position before?

    I'm in college myself, I'm just starting my sophomore year this fall, about an hour's drive from home. I also left my horse in the care of my younger sister and my dad. I suppose the best advice I can give you is to relax and know that all will be fine. I would say spend your last day at home with her just being buds and bonding. You can always call home and get a "Horsey report." I probably irritated the heck out of my family, lol. I also found it helpful to take photos of my horse with me, along with pics of my family and friends, and hang them on the wall over my bed in my dorm. I also saved a bit of my horse's tail hair that he stepped on and yanked out of himself and took that with me.

    I can almost gurantee you that she won't be taken care of exactly the way you do it, it's just a fact that everyone does barn chores a little differently, but I can also almost gurantee you that when you do come home, you'll be greeted by happy nickers and whinnies. It will be different, there will be a little "equine withdrawal," but the world won't end, and she's still your horse, no matter where you spend the night .

    I hope that helped, and good luck and have fun at college!
