Its been a while since I visited the forum. I've recently had to make the very hard decision to sell my horse Wiski. There is a lot of factors that play in, one of them was getting thrown and injured (torn rotator cuff) and some of the others are finances and time. He needs more time than I can dedicate to him at this point.
I thought about doing a lease to this really nice 15 y/o girl but decided instead to put him up for sale. So she immediately said she was interested.
I couldn't believe it! I had so much trouble getting him to listen to me most the time, she got on him the first time she met him and in minutes she had him doing whatever it was she wanted. It's been about a week and she's already got him jumping 2 ft! I started him on jumping a little btw!! Anyways, she said he's perfect so I couldn't find a better family, they take good care of their horses.
I told the girls mother that if she wants to buy him she can just make an offer. SO right now they're paying September's rent on him and they're going to see how he does for a month before they make a decision. But so far the girl looking at him is spending 6 hours a day with him training him and riding him every day. She's doing wonderful so it's no wonder she's having a blast. She says he's really smart and doesn't need much training, seems to know everything already.
So it's my bittersweet news to you all that I am selling my first horse, my first love. He's going to a wonderful 4H show home who will treat him like a king, I couldn't ask for more in this economy. But I will be sorely jealous when I see them competing and see him doing all that stuff I wanted to do with him lol.
Ok that was my news!
