That is really sad. I am sorry you had to sell them too.
I wonder what I would do if I ever got divorced, I would probably have to sell mine too. Better be extra nice to DH, LOL

Well an update!

I havent been on here for quite some time and I just read thru the posts I hadnt seen before.

I don't want to sound mean to anyone, I really respect and appreciate all advice and opinions given. I will just clarify the reasons I had to sell each horse.

My bf and I broke up because we needed time, and in the heat of the moment, he took away the privelages of seeing my horses. Two were at his boss's farm (the mare and the stud colt) and my gelding was at the farm where his stepdad works. I sold the gelding because he bucked me off about 2 weeks before we broke up. The gelding, cherokee, had been giving me attitude for sometime while riding, and I was getting sick of it. He would be good one ride, then the next, he was pretty much a horse from hell. So I decided to sell him before any of this happened.
When I decided that I was going to sell cherokee, I decided to put the other two up for sale and see what would happen. I got the stud colt from my great uncle because he didnt want to take care of him anymore, and I sold him because didnt really want a stud around the farm. I took him because they didnt want him, and he was just an awesome little colt. I sold the mare because I knew it would be awhile before I would get another horse to keep her company, and when she is alone, she loses weight and doesnt eat.
The bf did have some influence on it, as I didnt want my horses to sit by themselves and get no people attention, which wouldve happened, if I woulda kept them.
Brock likes horses, but he is super busy at work this time of year, and he wouldnt have been able to take proper care of them, or continue smokeys training.

I am looking into buying the mare, smokey, back. Brock and I got back together after we talked things out, and are going to work on our relationship. We are looking at getting a couple new horses.

I kno, I kno, what if it happens again and I have to sell off the horses again? Well it wont, but if this happens again, my uncle said he would be more than happy to have the horses at his place. He has a farm only about 15 minutes from where I live.

It was a decision that was thought through long and hard about getting back together with brock, but I think its the right thing to do. He doesnt have a problem with me having horses, he actually liked them all alot.

We are going to look at a horse on saturday. She looks promising and is pretty cheap. She looks healthy, and I talked to her owner, and she guarantees she is sound and healthy. I will post a link to her for sale ad in a little bit when I get off work. I will also post links to other horses we are thinking about.

Thanks for all the advice and opinions.

Why don't you get another horse and move it to your uncle's place right off the bat?

Never put a man before your horse. It'll come back to kick you in the butt eventually. It sounds like you're walking right back into the mistake you already made. I'm just being honest. I hope things turn out better for you this time around.

If a man was in any way the cause of having to part with my horses (heaven forbid), they would never find his body. End of story.

I do appreciate all the opinions and im glad everyone is honest. I was thinking the same thing about moving the horse to my uncles right away, so we will just see how things go.

If it comes back to bite me in the butt, shame on me I guess. But we have been together 3 years and its just hard to throw it away.

Yes, this. Double yes.

Shouldn't make another horse be passed from owner to owner though. Lease a horse till your situation is more stable.

If and when I do buy another horse, it will be going to my uncles farm. There isn't much leasing around here either. I actually have never heard of anyone leasing a horse or having a horse for lease in this area.

It is a confusing situation, but I'm wanting to make it work, as is he. And he admitted what he did was wrong and that he needed to change. We are working on things, and actually going to look at a couple horses this evening.

So you'll be entirely self sufficient this time? I wouldn't even entertain the idea of getting another horse if your boyfriend is going to have a share of the ownership or help pay for it. Because the next time he does something stupid, you'll end up right back where you started. If you have to give up your love for some guy, you're with the wrong guy.

And besides, are you happy to just keep buying and selling horses? Why consider getting another animal when it sounds like you're in an unstable situation?

I appreciate the concerns, but I assure you, that I am completely self sufficient this time, and the horses are my responsibility. All my responsibility. He doesnt have anything to do with them. I bought two today. One bay colt, and one bay filly. They are weanlings and are both registered.

They will be going to the same place for now, but will soon be moved to my uncles house when he gets more room because of water problems.

My bf isnt going to have anything to do with them besides seeing them sometimes. I will have complete control over them and where they go. They are both going to be transferred into my name, and his will not be on the papers.
I will start a new thread, and post pictures of them when I get a chance to get on the computer.

I know you guys will wonder why I bought two horses, when the situation hasnt been figured out. Well it has been figured out now. The horses are going to be mine and mine only. I will not sell these horses if something like this happens again. They will be at my uncles, and so I will be able to see them.

I wish you luck, but I would not for ONE second think about taking him back..
If I had to give up my horses, and then get back with him and just buy a few more..? That seems weird to me :s
But whichever it is, it is your life of course and I wish you the best!
