This is just a vent. I don't have anyone else to vent to because they would never understand.
I've been waiting for a few days to see if I could get Lyric's mom after she was offered to me. Long story short, is they wanted a decent amount of money for her. I asked if they would take a payment plan, but it was too stretched out for them. They asked for a heifer cow in trade. I didn't feel it was right to ask my fiance for one of his to trade so I told them, thanks for the offer, but I couldn't. Well, my fiance finds out, and OFFERS me one of his calf heifers to use as trade. Because of a snow storm it takes me a couple of days to get them a photo of the heifer and I finally get it today. I send it off, wait all day on pins and needles, and finally hear back around 4 p.m. Today that they would be willing to make a trade. I was so excited I was dancing around the house....only to find out that my fiance has changed his mind. He no longer wants to do the trade. I'm devistated. I so wanted that mare and her upcoming foal. It was a dream of mine. It hurts worse because he OFFERED all on his own violation. I didn't ask. And for him to change his mind...after they said yes. I am soo very hurt. I'm not sure when I'll get over this..or how it will affect our relationship. It seems like if there is one person in the world that you can trust not to go back on their word or not to hurt you would be your spouse. (or soon to be spouse)
