I still only own two horses though so I'm a long way from Lita's herd. I'll get there one day. The rescue Arab I paid for is going to continue to live with my friend and her herd. Though I own him so to speak...she loves him and loves that the herd is together. I continue to help with the cost of his rehab but he will live with them!
One of the girls that I work with on riding is part of a local 4H club. She continued to tell me how her club doesn't have horses only ponies. This is why her mom, a family friend, ask me to work with her on her riding. She was saying it was sad because now the "older" girls were to big to ride. They could only handle the ponies and learn "on the ground" things as well as working the ponies with carts. She must have been talking to the 4H club owner also because a few days later the lady(and Chasity) stops by my house to ask if I would be willing to sell one of my mares that she has heard soooo much about. At first I said no but we started talking .
So I sold that child safe and dead broke QH of mine(cause Bella was going no where!!). I have to say she has never had so much attention in her life. Those girls love her! The lady says the only problem is that there is only ONE of her!
Also, I did a good deed in selling her my mare because she didn't have a lot of money to put into a horse for the girls and was only looking for a good safe horse....not one that she had to put the miles on first.
So the mare left my home for theirs and at a VERY CHEAP price. Boy, when a little girl looks you in the face and they are waiting to hear if you're going grant their wishes for a horse....WOW!
Anyway....just when you sell one horse you gain another.
Back on track here! This is my new (work in progress) website
