Getting Over Selling a Horse :(

I just sold one of my ponies that I'd had since she was born - 7 years ago - and she was such a great pony... But she had to go because I didn't have anything to do with her. She went to a GREAT home, couldn't have asked for better, but still. It's just empty. She was always was the first one to greet me at the fence, but now that she's gone it's just depressing... How did you get over selling one of your horses?

Aww I'm sorry! It's always bitter sweet to sell them!

It just takes time and tears to get over them! Just remember you sold her to a good home that will make her more happy :)

Aww! It just takes time unfortunately. Hang in there!

Comfort knowing she went to a good home, right there is peace of mind. I do not think losing a critter whether it be through sale or death ever gets easy. I do think recognizing what you are feeling and allowing yourself this "time" is part of the process.

I miss ever horse I have sold. The two we have regretted most were Thunder and Jasper. We got the opportunity to purchase Jasper back and jumped on it. Thunder fell of the face of the planet. Last I heard the owners loved him. Haven't heard from them in years. I hope he is well. We have talked about it and if we ever come across him, he'll be back in an instant.

Just know that the pony went to a really great home. It just takes time to ease the heartache. It might never go away, but it does get better...

Definitely bittersweet, but it'll get better for you.

It gets easier. Its hard, but it does.

The first mare I ever sold I am best friends with her buyer now and she recently sold her on too as she 'outgrew' the mare's potential.

My second horse I sold is still on the same yard- as soon as I signed the papers, I went to my hardfaced trainer and sobbed in to her arms- tearing up a bit now reminding myself about it. I see him every day, and occassionaly get to ride him, but I miss that grumpy bugger.

You have sold the pony to a loving home, and you obviously had your reasons. Time will make it better, keepig in touch helps too.
