having to sell my horse...
 
My heart is breaking.

Because of a bad situation at the ranch we are at now and having to leave the barn for various reasons, i have nowhere else to put my horse, there's no good quality boarding barns around here i would feel safe keeping him at.

When march comes around and we move i'll have nowhere else to put him, and he will have to sell him. Before you get upset saying im casting my horse off with out a thought to his well being, just know this is killing me.

This will be better off for my boy too, my criteria for the person buying him is the absolute, best most loving home possible. One that will take care of him better than he would be taken care of bouncing through the various quality boarding homes i could find for him.

I have less than one month left with him, come march he'll be gone and my heart will be broken. The horse i've had for
four years will be gone, one of my greatest loves and my best friends will drift away from me. So i guess i just wanted to share with people who might understand, get it off my chest. Thanks so much to anyone who read this.

That is rough. It sounds like you've considered all the options and decided what's best. Sometimes the right thing is the hardest thing; this won't be easy but there are a lot of people out there looking for good horses. In fact, I'm looking for a been there/done that horse for kids to ride who visit me, taking my time, knowing that when the time's right, it'll be there. Somewhere out there is that person looking for your horse to be *their* right horse at the right time.

I hope this all works out well for you..... Hugs...

What you describe sounds just like my horse, hes a professional packer for anyone that wants to go for a ride. And its funny, we're in missouri too.
And you're right, i know he'll be better off this way. Just gotta put my emotions aside as best i can.

Are you going to be able to find the perfect home for him in under a month? That sounds like a scary time limit to me. I'm truly sorry that you're having to sell him... I can't imagine how difficult that must be for you.

Thank you very much. Its hard but its so nice to hear from people who truly understand. At least i have a couple more weeks with him this month to look forward to. If only it wasnt a leap year..buy me more time. Hah.

Sorry for double post, if i cant i have a temporary place for him that cant be long term because of space so he can stay there if finding him a home extends past next month.
And thank you.

Paints, if you're anywhere in NW Missouri (north of I-70 and west of Columbia), you're welcome to PM me with the info on your boy.

Honestly, if you were closer to the west coast, I'd be interested
