Unhappy I know I don't have a right to be upset, but I am

So as some of you may know, I just sold my mare Uma in November to a wonderful woman in Tennessee who understands her jumping limitations (BN level only due to hock issues that can be fixed with pricey injections) and loves her to pieces.

I have owned Uma since she was a weanling (known her since she hit the ground) and had her for nearly 8 years. We went through a lot together and giving her up was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I miss her every day and if I have ever regretted giving up one horse...it's Uma.

Now onto the reason I'm upset...

Her name has been changed recently... as in the last few days. To something that I don't like Her show name was Javah (beautiful, right?) And now both her barn name which she has had for the entire 9 years of her life and her show name are changed.

It may seem a bit ridiculous but the combination of the fact that I didn't want to sell her in the first place and now her name is changed...makes it really hit me that Uma is gone. The "Uma" I knew is no more. Sure, she's still the same horse... but she's not MY "Uma". She's someone else's under a different name.

Just wanted to get it out.

I suppose what it comes down to is that I miss the big girl

Cookies for listening to my whining.

Here's the big beautiful mare and I in action:

What was her name changed to if you don't mind me asking?

You did some thing I could never do. I know you did what was best for her. I'm sure she loves you for it. (((HUGS)))

She beautiful! Selling a horse is never fun, it's even worse when you have known them for a long time. But just think how much she is getting loved and cared for :)

Lovely mare.. I do feel your pain.. I sold my mare that fought me so much to a woman who needed a soft, forgiving horse for her daughter. And when I say soft and forgiving I mean this mare never got mad, never refused, never spooked. She was a great beginner horse. The day she was loaded up in the trailer, we had 3 year old kids on her bareback in a halter and leadrope for a birthday party. 30days later, we get an email from the lady saying "she's a marish cow" and was a brat. That mare was NEVER and I mean NEVER marish or a brat. She's now a broodmare because they couldn't ride her an screwed her up.. She would've made a great hunter circuit horse.

I had a dog that came to me as Sissy. I couldn't stand the name. It's what my mom called me when I was growing up. So I changed it to Halo. Halo still came when I called her Sissy. I'm sure she'll remember the sound of someone calling her Uma :)
