I try not to make a habit of ranting, but today was an especially bad day horse wise, and I need to write to help me get through it.
I had to have my old Quarter Horse, Tulsa, put down today. This leaves me with a HUGE hole in my heart, not to mention in our barn family. To make this whole thing better, my grandma, who owns a horse I ride regularly and care for daily, wants to move him from our home farm in PA to Florida! And she wants to do it THIS WINTER. I just lost one baby today, and now she tells me she is taking another one. I know I can't do anything about it because I don't own him, but it kills me to think I will be losing yet another one of my "kids." I don't know what to do... I wish I could somehow convince her to leave him here with me and the other horses. Any suggestions on how to approach it with her? :( Ugh, sorry for posting a rant, but it was much needed today.
