I'm another that has no business giving advice on thinning the herd. I did cut back when I bought out the farm from my grandpa but I still have a dozen here and quietly have my eyes open for a middle aged youth horse for my kiddo

I think CCH said it really well and I agree wholeheartedly. Do what you know is right for you, not for anyone else. I know if I had to thin out here there are those that I absolutely couldn't part with and those that I would consider but wouldn't necessarily want to. Keep the ones that you have the can't part with feeling about.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

If you're only riding for a short time period your weight is even less of an issue. When I was at my heaviest the hardest part for me & the horse was mounting-I made sure to get a boost somehow. All your horses are lovely and since none of them are major problems (right?)a rehoming decision is so very hard to make.
