Why do you ask? I noticed you have the thumbs down icon attached.
Oh dear! Huge amount of embarrassment!
I thought it was a question mark!
I'm inquiring because there may be some very major changes in my life and I'm looking at all the options that may be available for my horses.
Decisions do not have to be made asap, but I've never been one to leave things for the last minute.
I thought T would probably make a good therapy horse and will be calling a facility a few towns over that offer that to find out what they look for. Of course, if she qualifies, I would be donating her. Walka, well he's going to be another story.
