My Mare has been with me half my life and all of hers and she is the one who taught me to ride and handle a very "wild" stubborn horse. I rescued her from someone I knew when they were neglecting her and she's been with me since though I've known her since the day after she was born. I love her to death and I really don't want to sell her but I feel like I'm being selfish. I've developed an allergy to normal straight-haired horses and don't go out to see her as often as I used to and the boarding facility she has been at the last 7 years has degraded drastically in quality. She's perfectly healthy, but with the lack of my attention, her attitude is returning to its once stubborn attitude because the farm owners don't enforce "Rules" with the horses. Mostly let them do whatever and leave the training to the owners. I've been through so much with her and wouldn't even think of selling if I had my own property to keep her on but, am I being selfish keeping her and letting her just not be ridden more than once every couple weeks? I could really use help from people who have been through this before. Crying just thinking about losing her, but also because I might be being unfair to her.
Also thinking about selling my mini stallion (Registered but I don't posess papers. Was bought as Pet Quality over 4 years ago) Not sure yet, but not as torn with him as I know for a fact I'm being unfair to him. About %90 on the decision with him.
So Torn. Anyone got any advice?
