    Tomorrow is going to be rough :(

    My husband and I are planning to move abroad in April... so today I put up ads for both Simba and Bandit. I thought I'd hear nothing - it's two days after Christmas, it's winter, and I thought I was testing the water. To be honest, horses don't tend to sell at this time of year as hunting season is well underway and shows wont be underway until May.... I thought I'd hear nothing until mid March. I also put up good prices for both.. at 17yo I didn't think I would get anything at all for Bandit.

    I've now got people coming to view both tomorrow . My phone has been ringing nonstop for Bandit, and I've had one call for Simba and they plan to be there for 9am.

    Really not looking forward to it, but I know it has to be done. I thought if I put up ads now, it gave me plenty of time to hear from somebody and didn't envision for a second that they could be moving so quickly.

    Flip.. I'm not going to sleep well tonight

    That sounds very difficult. The good news is that you have time to sell your horses and can take your time picking an owner that will love and provide for them as well as you have.

    That was part of the reason I wanted to advertise early.. so that I could have all the time to find them the right home. I want the possible purchaser to have the option to send them back to me if it doesnt work out.

    I can't imagine how difficult this has to be for you. But TheLauren is right...this will give you time to make sure your horses go to the best homes possible. ((HUGS)) to you!

    Just curious...where in Ireland are you? My family is from Co Cork...

    Oh, my goodness-that is a big move! The moving, the selling, the packing. Have you been to Canada before? It's a big country-do you know what area you want to go to? Good luck to you & your horses. Hope you find them wonderful homes.

    I was born and raised in Canada. We're heading to Sask as that is where I grew up. Thanks very much :)

    Wishing you luck today. Even though this must be very hard for you to do, just remember you're going to be doing everything possible to find good homes for your two.
