I need to rant - I HATE selling horses.

I haven't slept well in over a week because I'm worried about Maia's impending sale. I'm having nightmares that she's going to buck the lady off, or be really stupid, even though I'm sure she won't.
In addition, I've been having panic attacks every day, either panicing that she won't sell, or I"m having panic attacks that she will sell, and it will be a huge mistake.
I can almost feel ulcers forming...!
I hate the whole process. I hate the e-mails, the calls, the showing the horse, everything. I hate not knowing if you're doing something to their liking.
I also hate how if a horse is going to get hurt, it's when they're condidionally sold. Maia has come up very sore in the past week (in her back) and I've already shelled out $90 to have a chiropractor to look at her, and she's gotten worse! And of course the people still want to come see her, and most likely take her home! GAH!
I hate the waiting. I hate impatiently waiting.
I wish it would be over, one way or the other, so I can at least sleep well again.

Aww, flower. Take a hug.

I completely agree--selling horses is a pain, but sometimes things happen for reasons, aye? Maybe something wonderful will come out of this for you.

Thanks, Moxie and QuarterPony. I'm so stressed about the whole thing.
HOWEVER - I just talked to my friend's equine chiro, and she really put my mind to ease. She said Maia's probably going through a growth spurt, and she's just sore and her SI (sacro-illiac) joint is all out of whack. She really reassured me that the discomfort won't last, and she's 99% sure that's all it is, thank God.
However, she did say that I am not to ride her hard for the next 5 days, which kind of stinks, because the people are to be out Sunday to see her again, and probably take her home.
Oh well.
I agree, QP, I think that something will happen for a reason. Either she'll get sold or she won't, and right now I'm fine with either.

If she sells, I'll horse-hunt again. If not, then I have plans to find a trainer and send her there for October, I think.
Grand plan is possibly sending her to a WP trainer, and saving up for a western saddle. Possibly.
Yup, I'm flip-floppy.

I still hate the process though.
