As shocked as I am, I feel your pain 100%.
I'm going thru the same thing w/TJ. I did it once -- "got out of horses" -- when I was young. And due to personal situations, family issues and the economy I've been cotemplating "getting out of horses" yet again (maybe it's a sign...I'm just not meant to be here?
). I just
took TJ off the market because of the current US economy...but I don't know how long I can make it last as I am not near to being back on my feet. It is SO hard, though, especially when you are so attached to them and you can tell they are to you. So hard
. But you know when it's the right thing to do. Good luck.
I have a feeling someone here on the Horse Forum will scoop Cobalt up in a flash! Everyone loves him so!
Best wishes to you and Cobalt!
