Bad News....ok, more like really really crappy news!

Ughhhhh. For those of y'all who don't know, I free lease a 5 year old paint gelding named Sage. He's awesome--a total sweetie. Recovering rescue horse, too.

AND...his owner has decided to sell him. He's leaving by the 15th of June....most likely wayy earlier. He's going somewhere far away, so I'll never see him again, most likely. And now, I no longer have a horsey to take care of, seeing as I don't own one. It makes me sooooo mad because why would he ask me to take care of Sage if he was just going to sell him? I love the little ****** lol! It's not fair!!! Gahhhhhhaldskfja;lsd falsej;lra .

Alright. Just needed to vent. :(

I wish...the deal's already been made. :( Plus, it's not the initial buying that's the family and I can't afford board and vet fees at the moment. Probably not until like....August/September...which is wayyy too long to ask him to wait for.

Thanks for the thoughts, though. I appreciate it. **hug**

Sorry to hear that Mary Its heartbreaking to sell a horse. I know Sage will always be in your heart. Are there any other horses in your area you can free lease?

Oh I am so sorry to hear that you are being seperated from a good friend...maybe you kind find someone in your area who just needs the extra help working with theirs until you guys can afford one of your own. Or maybe volunteer at a rescue facility until then if there are any near you that is. Maybe then you will meet one ya'll can adopt later on down the road. In the meantime know that my good wishes for the future are with you and your buddy.

I am very sorry to hear that. When I was young, I took care of a horse for someone. For about a year - and I fell in love with the horse. One day I got to the barn to find out that he sold Big Mack at an auction the night before. I never got to say goodbye and I never knew what happened to him. Its been over 20 yrs and I still miss that horse.

Take time to say a goodbye and give him love before he goes.

Awww, Kim that's so sad! I appreciate all your guys' thoughts. I'm looking into other leases, talking to my barn owner. I don't'll be weird not seeing his cute face looking at me over his stall door...

**Takes a deep breath** I think I'll survive. Thanks y'all!

That is very unfortunate. Did you talk to the owner about your idea. There probably is a very good reason as to why they are selling the horse as sad as it is for you and it might make you feel better if you talk to the owner and get a better understanding as to why.

I would look around in your area. Sometimes there are horses available for free leases.

Keep us posted and keep your chin up.

Thanks, M2G. You guys are all totally awesome and supportive.

I talked to my boss about another horse, and he told me about another horse for lease, Sierra. She's also a sweetie. He's going to talk to Sierra's owner about working something out. Hopefully that'll work out...if not, I'll find something.

Thanks again, you guys. I'll keep you posted.
