    Hard but right decision

    Me and my mom had been talking about something and decided tonight that we are going to give my 27yr old guy back to his original owners along with a mare that we bought from them. They are bawling, we are bawling lol....but they are happy tears. I have had him 10yrs, I won my first All-Around saddle (won two on him), lots of buckles and other awards. Lots of plaques and ribbons at the county fair, and A LOT of memories. He has taught me SO much through the years. But he was retired from me running him in 2010 and a friends daughter had been riding him but has pretty much out grew him.

    So he will be going back up to BC and get used by our friends Grandbaby :)

    And Kelly will be going up to live out the rest of her retiree years on 800 acres.

    It is hard to make the decisions you know are the best ones. And 10yrs of memories are hitting me ALL at once lol!

    Awww very precious pictures. I completely feel for you :( on the bright side he'll have a new kid to teach all those invaluable lessons and life morals too. He looks like an amazing horse and my heart goes out to you but also remember that no one can ever take those memories from you :)

    Yes, and he is going to teach that little girl a lot and hopefully win her lots too. It is a full circle now :) We always discussed when they were down visiting that if we ever decided to get rid of him we would only give him back to them.

    Yes and that is what makes it easier on me, is knowing he is going to teach another little girl a lot. He is going back to his home and the family is just ecstatic about it. We have all been bawling lol.
