    This is the time I would pray to have two horses! Lost!

    Mr. Raban offered to help me sell Blu for a good profit and maybe buy one of his horses. He caught me off-guard and it was overwhelming! I didn't know what to say. His horses are beautiful. Before we bought Blu we almost bought one of his young geldings....Radio, I believe I have talked about him. I would love to buy a new horse.




    But I don't know if I could stand selling Blu. And who would I sell him to? What if he didn't end up with the right people? What if I never see him again? It's so hard.




    Just a little random: I was hoping to ask Mr. Raban if I could help work his horses during the summer break. It would be a dream! I have come to ride with his family a few times before.



    All kinds of emotion has swept over me so fast! I don't know how to react. Sometimes I think I need a horse that can compete at a much higher level thatn Blu because I acn't always be teaching him. BUT! I have become so attached to my Blu and it's so hard to cope with this situation. WHAT DO I DO?!

    I've only sold 3 horses and every one was hard on the heart. I cried when each one drove down the drive away from me. But, I knew each one was going someplace wonderful. Just be picky about who you sell to. If Blu isn't going to take you where you want to go, its best he goes to someone who needs him as much as you needed him when he came to you.

    I wrote a little letter to Mr. Raban. I want to see what he says. Know the letter feels childish.

    I really appreciate your reply! It's like...I know I'm supposed to choose what's best and I don't know what this is. I know to choose what I think is right...but I don't know what that is either! Lol. Grrr

    I know, it's hard selling a horse.
    But, if you do sell him to the right people, it will feel good inside. :) So you know he's going to a good home. But you should take some time to think about it, still.

    I know how you feel. I was offered a pretty penny for my Appy and after much thought I took it because I knew he would be better off with this woman. She emails me a couple of times a month to let me know how he's doing and sends pics. It was and still is the hardest thing I've ever done. It was like I just sold my actual baby!

    It was hard the first few times, but because of the level im at I really now know that this is just going to happen more and more as I get older and I have to be in the position to say goodbye. But it never really is easy

    Ok heres an idea...why don't you lease blu out so that you can still keep him as your own but you don't have the extra burden of cost to look after him. A barn may want to take him on as a lesson horse even

    Aside from that, its never easy selling a horse or any animal we have become close to for that matter. But if you feel that blu isnt going to go where you want to go then its all for the best of you and blu. Its a tough decision and I don't envy you for having to make it but decisions are what life is all about.

    If you do sell him you can always put conditions on the sale like not being resold, being able to visit him, first choice if they do decide to sell or him having to stay within a certain distance from you. You can get it in writing and signed legally to be sure.

    Good luck with your decision darlin :)
