Well I dont know what to say about the horses as you alerady sold them. But if my ex was the reason i had to give up my beloved pets, pshh, he'd be gone too. There would be no taking him back until he made right what he wronged.
I have to agree. If my current love (We've been together 13 years.) in any way jeopardized my horse, he'd be gone. I've only had the horse for 7 months, and strangely, my BF is not in the least bit bitter that I would react this way.
Not trying to offend when I say, this is the a prime example of why, especially as a woman, you have to be completely self reliant. If you're not, even relying on people you love, can be dangerous. They got ya by the short hairs, not to sound like a raging feminist. ;)
I wouldn't get back together with him for ONE reason, and that is because, even when you break up with someone, a mature adult can realize, yes, I do still love this person and not want to leave lasting scars, no matter how angry.
So, if he made you sell your horses, just because you broke up, that doesn't sound like love to me. Or not a mature lasting kind anyhow. He's taken a part of you that cannot be replaced. Even if you got back together and you bought all your horses back if that were possible. How long til next time?
Ok, rant over, I promise. I just put myself in that situation and it made me see red for a moment.
