Well surprise, surprise...the BO was NOT as upset as I thought she'd be. She seemed a little POed, but not much. We didn't tell her that we were leaving because she was treating me like crap, we told her that she kept saying she'd sell the place so we didn't want to wait till the last minute and move. But she said that she'd never sell the place, and would be alright with me staying lol. You could tell she was trying to convince me not to move.
Then she asked where I was moving him to, and we told her, and she seemed fine with it. She seemed alright...a little upset but definitely not to the extent that we thought.
As for loading...he did better than I thought. He followed me on and the first try to get his back feet on he didn't place his foot on the right place and then couldn't lift himself up...so then he got nervous and backed out. Again we tried and he did fine. I learned how to load a horse yay!!!!!
The drive was fairly short, and though I was panicing the whole time on whether or not he was fine....he was lol
He unloaded fine, but was VERY flighty at first. He kept pacing and just realllly pushy. He spooked at the goat...and I had to turn him in circles a couple times to stop him from getting too pushy.
I let him go in the field...a nice acre field...and he trotted off. But OMG I'm sooo mad at myself...here I was watching him prance and canter around like a stud and I didn't record it! I'll never forgive myself!
But after a while he calmed down and munched on grass. I sat on a tire in the pasture (he's in the obstical course pasture...really happy about that now he can get used to all the weird objects lol) and he'd occasionally come over to me and let me pet him.
I am really happy that I moved him. SCF seems like a GREAT place and he seems realllllllly happy there. The other horses are great, and the BO is wonderful. I feel that I made the right decision in moving him.
But on the downside the old BO made me feel so bad about leaving. We were considered kinda close...I'd help around the stables...and so on. She said "it felt like I had gained a daughter...and now your leaving"......I felt bad, but I couldn't tell if she was being sincere about it, or just saying that to get me to reconsider. But I still felt kinda bad. But I guess it was time anyways.
Pictures will come soon...I'm having difficulties with my laptop again so I'm on my dads computer.
I'll post again once my laptop behaves and I can upload the pictures
