Yesterday a lady that I work with aproached me with an interesting offer. She has more horses than she can feed right now. She has a 15 & 17 year old geldings. Both are well broke to ride & drive. She said if I would take both for 3-4 months, I could have my pick of the 2 to keep for free. If I like both & her family feels like they could live without both, we could work out a reasonable price for the other.
I've had Jack for almost 2 years. I know I can't keep 3 horses. But with Jack, most days are a struggle. He's too green for me. I was planning on taking him to another trainer this winter, but it will cost almost 2000$ for 3 months.
I'm going out to ride the 2 geldings this weekend to see if I like them & are comfortable with them. If I like them. I'm going to have to sell Jack. Between hay prices & them market for green, spoiled pony's, I know he'll probably end up at auction. I hate to do it, but as I told my hubby, I know I'll be much happier with a horse I can actually ride. It may just be time to move on.
