    DuffyDuck: Maybe time to start saying goodbye...

    Well, I had the initial thread started over the weekend about possible horses.

    Long story short, I bought a pair of balet pumps to go rock climbing. I have had an in depth conversation with my trainer, and she believes Duffy is built to jump, and any dressage work will be difficult on her, and she won't do it particularly well. As I want to get in to this as a sport, I have to be realistic.

    Two things happened tonight. I saw my farrier who jumps S class (one level below GP) and I asked if he knew anyone who would jump her. He has offered- that was lovely.

    So I go in to speak to my trainer and let her know, she said good good.. I go to tack Duffy up and she says you need to speak to P's owner.. now!
    Run in, and she says she heard my convo (one time I am glad someone eavesdropped!) and said her jumping trainer (also S class) is ALWAYS on the look out for horses of Duffy's caliber, and fiestyness... so, I believe he's coming this weekend to trial her.

    I had no idea things would move this fast.. and if he doesn't buy, he may know someone who does, or give me an idea of where to go with her.


    So, this thread is basically going to be the updates, more than likely the let downs, and any ounce of positive news!

    Oh how sad. How long have you had Duffy? I am sorry that you are going to have to say goodbye. I hope though that you find someone who will be able to love him like you.

    I've had her since 11 Jun 11. Its a partnership I always feel I have to fight to keep as well, she's a big, strong mare and I also think she needs a stronger, firmer rider. I don't know how much further we'll go because she sometimes shows HUGE displays of disrespect under saddle.

    We'll see. Like my dad said, its one thing putting her up for sale, and another selling her ;)

    I will be, but I will lease for a couple of months and save my pennies... there are some lovely horses on the market right now.

    If it feels good when you make the decision to move on, then it's the right one. I hope everything works out right for you and Duffy

    It does GH. I feel a bit sad, but not heart wrenchingly so. If she has the talent, why should I hold her back, eh?

    If its meant to be, its meant to be.
    If I can't sell her, someone out there is trying to tell me something. If I do, then there will be another one out there!
