Could you maybe just lease him out until you do find a better, reasonable place to board him? That way he won't be gone forever, just temporarily?

Have you thought of finding him a place that wasn't necessarily a boarding barn? Maybe talk to your vet, farrier, the people that run your local horse businesses. You might be surprised what you uncover.

I do sympathize with your situation. I am sorry you are going through this.

I know exactly what you are going through. :'( I'm starting to cry thinking about it. I had to sell my first horse, that I had owned for 5 almost 6 years. I raised her from a yearling and did all her training.

I haven't been on a horse since, and it's killing me.

My name is now my horses on a dor not my horse sonador

I agree with everyone above. I am truly heartbroken to hear about your situation and I couldn't imagine being in it. But, maybe there are other options - lease, private board, etc.

I hope you find a way to hold onto your horse.

Have you looked around for other options other than boarding barns? Sometimes you can find folks that need a little acreage mowed down or something of that nature. Try your vet, farrier, feed store or any other place that sells horse stuff.

I'm in Missouri. I went on Craigslist and there are a ton of people who are just looking for a pasture buddy for their horse only wanting 100 a month or so for boarding. I'm not sure what area you are in, but you could try checking there!

Thank you guys. I talked to my friend about last night and I think I can keep him there for a long while, at least the remainder of this year, as long as they have access to ride him when they want along with their other horses and that's fine with me, they're perfectly trust worthy and so is my horse.
So happy I don't have to sell him for the forseeable future as long as this works out and their family agrees. :)

Nice! How quickly our fortune can change. Count your blessings!

I love a happy ending!
