I told her "so I hear Champ almost found a new home yesterday"

And she text back saying "No way. They were not qualified. However, there is a lady who fell in love with him. She totally qualifys."

My heart about stopped and then she text me saying "that lady is you..."

Don't be scared :) IF he finds a good home, it will most likely be as a pasture buddy. Sure beats sitting in his stall!! Besides, I'm sure you'd be more then welcome to visit him whenever, esp being a part of the Rescue Ranch Team. That's part of the adoption agreement...random check-ins whenever we want! Lol

Cristmas Eve....

By far the WORST thing about the military? Theres never enough time with friends and family. Army is always priority. People PCS and ETS and leave all the flipping time And you procrastinate and think oh I have time, ill tell them this some day. And then the army changes orders or priority and poof theyre gone and you're sitting there with whiplash punching yourself because you procrastinated in telling that person what you needed to tell them. And it SUUUUUCKS.

End rant

MERRY ALMOST CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!

Yea....sorry but you're right.....people move around relatively quick in the army.......Now with cell phones, voice over IP, instant messaging and such I wouldn't think that would be so much of a problem......Christmas was always hard for me, especially being so far away from home.

Hope you had a Merry Christmas to......you having to share the beach with Obama?

Soooo yesterday...Betina gave me Champ....!!!!!!!!!
She told me if I want him he's mine, no adoption fee just take him lol. I said no at first but then Athena jumped in and said she would try to work out a deal for me to get free board for him....and give me their discount to get him shipped back home!

So realistically I would just be paying the roughly $200 for feed, then $60 for farrier and whatever vet bills he would have....im seriously contemplating it. But 7 probably wont make a decision till after new years

None of my business, but you'll likely be shipping out sooner rather than later.......I mean,....being in the army, you could be gone before you have a chance to make arrangements for him....depending on national emergencies, foreign powers, etc......things can happen fast.

This is one you might want to really consider before making a commitment. Have you talked to your folks about it?

Horses can sure steal a heart in a hurry can't they?

Worse case scenario, just give him back. Not like your moving him off the property.
