ever regret it?

So been thinking lately.. I know selling fury at the time was the right decision since I didn't have the means to actually get her going correctly. However looking back over the pictures and not knowing where she is now (lost contact with her new owners) and if she's happy makes me sad. The poor girl didn't know any better than to be the way she was but if I had the right trainer and arena to train her I would have kept her. A few months ago I found a post that gave me a slight scare haha looked exactly like her perfect age and what not thankfully it turned out to just be a daity quarter mare. If I had the chance to get her back I think I would take it now that I have a good trainer and am back at the ranch I wish I had just stuck it out :[
This is us bareback ..in the roundpen she was an angel the second you put her in a bigger arena or out on the trail demon arab came out haha in her defense though it'd been awhile since anybody did anything with her and when I got her I thought I would have a trainer around but ended up not .

I regret selling many a horse. I feel your pain...There are many horses I wish I would have back at this time that I never would have been able to work with before.

I regret selling my Buddy. I sold him this past Spring. He was out of my first horse, a welsh mare and a QH stud. I could do anything with him. I even had him going bareback bridless before I sold him.

I hardly ever rode him with a saddle in the months leading up to me selling him.
He would take care of me all the time.
I now look at my 3 year old and my rope mare, and I just don't trust them like I trusted him. I rode my 3 year old bareback once, but she was sooo tense. I miss being able to just hop on bareback and going to the field for a gallop. I hope my 3 year old gets like him... he was sooo trusty!

But with the $1500 I got from selling him, I bought two yearling fillies.
But I still miss him :(

I definitely don't regret selling my colts dam, Candy. She had never been worked with before or after I got her and I had too many other horses to work with so when a girl came looking for a horse too use as her college training project I jumped at it because I knew that she would give candy a good home and the attention that she needed and deserved.

I miss Marq My Words every day. But he was a horse who needed his own little girl to love on him. He'd had it rough before I got him and I got him healthy and going well under saddle, not that it was a tough chore because it totally wasn't. But he was soooo sweet and soooo willing, a lovely fellow. I have too many horses to be any one horse's human though and I met a lovely young lady who needed a total Steady Eddy in her life. She and Marq are a match made in Heaven and while I miss him and would love to have him back, I still know he's in the right place!

Its nice to know I'm not alone. I just wish I was more secure about where she is now since I haven't heard from her owners in months since they told me that she was going great for their 5 little kids(shocked me as she was a very excitable girl guess she was just one of those horses that goes dopey for kids haha). I guess that's just how it goes though.
