An Extremely Difficult Decision

So, I'm trying to still sell Chava, but instead of buying a new
horse or two with some of the money she brings, my husband
and I were talking and I told him we shouldn't even bother
finding a horse right now, to wait sometime after the baby is born.
It really is a very difficult decision, but is prolly for the best right
now, we literally don't have squat for the baby right now, so we
really need the money to buy things the baby will need...and there
is so so much! I hope I'm making a mature decision, though I will
be sad at the same time. :(

Also if anyone is interested in purchasing Chava, PM me. She
is a 9 year old Pintaloosa Mare and is registerable. Good trail,
Arena, and youth horse. I only want $550 for her, a real STEAL!
I am located in Warren, Arkansas.


It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

Nobody can fault you for putting your baby's needs first. I think you've made a very grown up decision, good for you!

Stella - sweet, timid, elegant, lovely, lively, amazing
Luna - large, unattractive, naughty, adored

That is a good decision, even though it may not seem like it. It's best for you, the baby and Chava. After I had my baby I hardly rode my horses at all. Good for you, you are gonna be a great mom!

Thanks, I feel in my heart it's the right thing to do and I haven't
rode in so long as it is, I feel as if Chava is getting neglected
and I really need the money she will bring.

Good luck with the sell. The web is full of online horse sale pages where you can post adds for free. If you do some searching, you will find lots.

Good luck :)
