    K guys I need help. Im having an emotional dilemma that I shouldn't be having till late April... Yall know how much I adore Romeo and how much he loves me right. Well as you know I have him on a lease right now and it ends late April... Any and all training on him involving jumpers has basically been done by me (with my trainer having a bad shoulder she doesnt ride him as much as the others in our group), sure he was a good little jumper when I got him but he had many issues and now he's all but flawless... He was my "project horse" and I just can't handle the thought of anyone else eventually owning him... Im having a break down. Especially if he goes to Flower Mound Equestrian Center... Every time I ride him in show they are watching him and id die if they found out he was for sale.. But we can't buy him because he "failed" his lameness test when we were originally going to buy him, even though he's never had any medical history in his life, because if we ever wanted to sell him hed pull up lame and we couldnt. So im having a "mid-lease crisis". I don't WANT TO GIVE HIM UP! He's mine!!! His owners don't want him nor do they ride him, they just lunged him because he was so quick, and I KNOW the next person who gets him will use his speed improperly and he will get hurt. He's my perfect match.... I don't know what to do... X'(( I know I have to give him up eventually, and I want to jump higher and so does my trainer, but he's just... We have come so far and I know nobody else will understand his mind like me or laura (coming from Gent, who was insane, to Romeo, who is insane with a brain). He loves me and I love him and I don't ever want him to go but the time is fast approaching when I will never see him again X'((

    My winter rye is tall and making my goats fat. This is a 'before' picture when they just got turned out on it this morning. I will take an 'after' picture later this after noon if I can remember. No complaints from me about rain - we still need more! I can grow grass like this in the cooler months, but I can't grow the bermuda/coastal for nothing. The sun kills it dead. This is the only time of year for us when everything is green. In the summer, it is a dust bowl out here.

    So sorry TBJ! THat is sad - ;-( So he will probably just become a school horse or maybe be leased out again by someone else? You'd think that b/c of his vet check, maybe he'd be priced a little cheaper and then you could have two horses! Most people I know that compete regularly often have a string of horses they work with - as little as two or sometimes up to 5 (ask mom and dad about that!!). If you could keep him then you could lease him out yourself (and pick and choose a good match for him) and hopefully that would pay a good chunk of his price tag after awhile - especially if the person leasing was paying his board and such....

    I feel for you - just trying to come up with ideas to help! But I know that probably isn't helping.

    Well he is "relatively" cheap because he was "impossible to ride" when we got him, he is 15k. But price of the actual horse isnt the issue, its our barn is a 5* barn so the board is very expensive and I just don't have time for 2 horses.

    I'm sorry your going thru this TBJ! I've been lucky, that I've always had horses and never had to lease (but I don't do compititions like you). It's hard, he's your "baby" Good luck, hopefully something will work out where you can see him often.

    And for a little humor for the day.
