Or, instead of selling, could you board her elsewhere for a while? I think selling might be an extreme. Just slowly wean her away, and then take her to her new place for a while, and you won't have to sell her.

Just a thought.

I know it is extreme. But it is the only way we can afford it. I have to choose either keeping Storm or Twista, and boarding around here is extremely expensive. We also don't have the land to keep 3 horses. With the laws out here I am only suppost to have 2 horses at my house right now.

I'm sorry this isn't the nicest way of doing it, but there is no other way for us to do it financially and physically. She will be with another mare so that she does have someone with her.

If I take her mom out for rides everyonce in a while Twista will bust down the fence. She does it when I take the other mare out.

Maybe selling the filly is your best option, then. Sounds like as if you have to fix fence every time you want to go riding.

I did consider selling the filly, but Storm doesn't really work for me. I love taller horses and horses with more spunk to them. We have an extremely weak fence. All it consists of is one line of electric wire on little round posts. We also have a cheap/weak fencer and half the time I don't even know if it works. It was suppost to be a temporary fence for the summer, but then short notice it ended up we had to keep horses at our place and the ground was to solid to drill in big T-posts.
