    Aww if I had the money for two horses I would come get her :) I'd love to get another hot breed that could keep up with Lizzy for those intense trail rides. We can go 15-20 miles and she will be constantly trying to trot.

    You are lucky that yours grow nice coats. I'm not sure if Lizzy will or not. Last winter her hair was insane long but she was also severely underweight so I'm not sure if that was her body trying to survive. But either way I put thousands into her putting on weight I'm not about to let her lose one pound to shivering. She is a desert horse after all lol.

    I am going to really miss Savana. :( She was my first horse,and I've always thought I'd have her forever.. I've been putting off this decision for the last 6 months,but realized that I am being selfish and doing her no favors by hanging on to her purely for sentimental reasons.At first,I didn't want to accept the fact that this medical condition could really and truly keep me from her,but time and experience has shown me that it can and it does and it will.It's not good for her to just be sitting,when she loves to work. And I am noticing that she is getting kind of stupid about certain things that she normally would not react to,I think simply because she is bored;two years is a long time to hardly be ridden for a horse with that much energy.I have shared an amazing journey with this horse, but that time in both of our lives appears to be past, and I need to let her go be with the person it's right for her to be with now.I just pray that I can find her the perfect home..

    Could you lease her out? At least you'd have some control over her future then, might provide some peace of mind.

    I've got two likelies for Brock, one to buy and one to lease. But I'm getting worried - one of them has already decided they want him before seeing him. Is this unusual? I clearly disclosed Brock's issues. They have other horses but have barbed wire fences which I'm not keen on, especially as it will just be a lease. Other horses look in good condition and I'm probably just worrying but he's an odd horse and as I'll be in Victoria it'll be hard to do regular checks on him.

    Ugh, late growth spurts are confusing. One day your horse looks almost matured, the other he's butt high and you have to wait and hope he's going to fill out. I guess I'll know it by spring or so.

    I looked into leasing her out,but from what I hear and have seen,there is zero interest in this area,especially for just pleasure/trail horses.
    I'm hoping the fact that she is so high strung won't make it hard to rehome her though..

    Ah yes,the late growth spurt,lol. Sequoya was that way,she really kept me guessing as to what she was going to look like.She got to a point where she looked all grown up and really good,but then she went on a growth spurt and that's when her hind legs got a little goofy,so that was somewhat disappointing,but oh well.

    Please excuse me while I barge in with my pity party.

    I broke up with my boyfriend this weekend and my heart is just broken. Blake is the sweetest, most observant man I've ever met in my life and he loved me so much it was sick. We broke up in June but got back together a month ago. I so wanted this last month with him to be great but it just wasn't. We weren't meshing as well as we did, our two months apart gave us much needed time to grow but I think we just grew apart. And my **** empathy is getting the best of me. You should have heard him try to change my mind and offer suggestions in hopes it would help with the weirdness. Things were just different, it wasn't working, and you have no idea how much I wish it had worked. Great men are far and few between.

    Sorry to hear that, riccil0ve! Sadly, sometimes that just happens. Do you think you can still remain good friends? Or would it be too confusing? He sounds like a really nice person and you're right, great men (and women) are few and far between. Great friends are too

    I broke up with my (now) boyfriend a few times in the past, because we were struggling with the distance and having to practically have a relationship over the phone, but we remained friends throughout and despite dating other people and having a whole heap of other stuff happening (like accidentally falling out of contact for 3 years when we simultaneously lost our phones) we eventually ended up back together and in a few months, hopefully, we will finally be living together (only taken 6 years!!).

    Country - I love high strung horses. The barn I'm at is mostly qh or something of the sort. There are a few arabs but none are as personable as Lizzy. It is really such a shame she is already 19. I love them to be hot and have a personality rather than plug along boring haha.

    Ricci - That is hard. I have been there but it all worked out in the end. Sometimes things happen and you wont know why until something better happens.

    And today Lizzy dear had a good ride. All she wanted to do was run, run, run. It's really hard to get into a nice two point in a dressage saddle lol, so I tried my best. Her cough seems to get better the more we work and I think the cool damp weather is helping. And here is a picture of the princess herself.

    EHOD, it would be too hard for both of us to stay friends. Maybe with time it'll be easier. I will certainly miss him a a friend, no one knows me as well as Blake does but that didn't seem like a good enough reason to stay. =\ I don't know if I have faith for us in the future, but I have faith in fate so we'll see where I end up! It's still hard though.

    Pretty girl, Country! I like a good hot horse too, but don't think you can't get a hot one out of QH lines. My little one is a pistol, and she's FQH, lol. She certainly isn't a plug. =P
