So, I received an email early this morning inquiring about Ice....actually, she just requested pictures. I responded in my usual way, sending the link to my photobucket album, as well as some more recent ones as attachments. I also offered to link her to my recent youtube video (warning her of its awfulness) and another one that really showcases how well he moves. I received an email back that actually sounded well put together and thoughtful, asking how his feet were and if he required a lot of upkeep (supplements, chiropractor visits, etc). She did compliment me and say he was gorgeous, but might be too much of a project, and she'd forward him to her trainer. I replied again, asking what she plans on doing with him, and got a very nice, again mature email back saying he'd probably be an EQ, flatwork hunter, and maybe a low level dressage horse. The woman interested in him is middle aged, a mother, and has another OTT horse, so she knows the trials and tribulations of one! I'm relieved that at least this woman seems sane, and might actually be a lead to somewhere, but at the same time I am incredibly anxious/sad about the possibility of sending Ice off to someplace that's not just around the corner (she lives a couple hours away) and never seeing him again.
Great. Now I'm all teary eyed. Stupid ovaries.
