Responsibility can be a scary thing, but if it is something that feels right to you, something that you feel in your heart is what you desire, then go for it. Only you know if you truly want this horse for your own, or if you are taking her to "keep her from going somwhere bad" when you don't fully love her. If that is the case, then I think you can help them place her in a perfect, loving home where she will have an experienced handler like yourself. You can continue working with her until then, even if it takes a good year or longer. If you don't feel up to it, then don't do it. But if you do, then good luck and enjoy what is to come!
Thank you for your wise words. This is a little bit like your "Dream Horse" thread. I do love her. Even though she meets almost none of the criteria of the "dream" horse I've been imagining (a 16HH+ TB/WB gelding!), I think she is pretty perfect for me. It's a little bit scary, falling in love like this. But the more time I spend with her, the more I like her (and I know she's the "one" because I work with many horses and don't feel the same way about them as I do about her). It's certainly unexpected, but I guess that's how these things work.

Haha! Yeah, I was thinking as I was writing it that it sounds like I'm talking about a person. But hey, love is love right? Actually having a horse again might have the added bonus of never having to go on a date for quite a long while...

I'm really happy to hear that you love her! In that case, I'd bite fear in the butt and listen to what makes you happy. I can't wait to spend the rest of Dreamer's life with her. You won't regret something that makes you happy. Someone said in my dream horse thread "We tend to regret what we didn't do rather than what we did". If your heart screams yes, then follow it. And yes, do post some photos!

I think you're right, Horsequeen08. I'll post some pictures as soon as I can. I've been meaning to do some conformation shots anyhow!
