I've had a personal battle with myself for the last two years about selling Kita. As most of you know Kita was my first Quarter Horse and she means the world to me. Unfortuantly I haven't had time to ride Kita in the last three year, with having a baby and starting the young horses. Kita dispite my best efforts to ride when ever I found time (not often) and dieting her got very very huge over the last couple of years and nearly foundered twice, because of her weight.
So finally my husband said that it would be best for Kita just to sell her, which I had been thinking for awhile. So after months of thought I finally put her up online for sale with a huge old price tag that I was sure noone would pay. Well low and behold someone came out to look at her today while I was away. I told them I wasn't going to be able to be there but they were welcome to go out and have a look at her anyways. They phoned me up and said yes they were taking her and they would like to bring her home tonight, they drove 5 hours and they had their tailer with them. So as much as it broke my heart I told them that yes they could bring her home. Well my dear sweet Kita wouldn't load for them. And as fusturating as it must have been to them I actually jumped with joy knowing that I could say goodbye to my sweet girl. But they did leave a deposit on her and Kita is offically someone elses horse.
She will be going to a very good home where she will be loved by a arm load of grandchildern and ridden out on the trails regularily. All I've ever wanted for Kita was to have the best life possible and I know that they will give that to her. Geez, do you know how hard it is to write with tears in your eyes. As much as it hurts me to let her go I know that I can't be selfish and hold on to her. Tomorrow when I'm at home I know for certian that I will spend a few long moments with my arms wrapped around her neck giving her one of my last hugs goodbye.
