Bittersweet day!

With my recent change in schedule I haven't been riding as much as I used to and my horses haven't been getting the attention both need and deserve.
I talked to my sister a few weeks ago about downsizing to one horse, and she mentioned her new husband was still thinking of getting a horse.
He's rode Mona (buckskin in my avatar) a few times and really likes her. She talked to him about it and decided they would take Mona. They picked her up today.
I know Mona will have a good home, and they'll send her back to me if something happens and don't want her anymore. She's also really close, so I'll see Mona often.
I think I made the right decision, but still really sad. It's just me and Wills now.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

It's always sad saying goodbye to a friend but sounds like a good situation in that she is with a family member that will care for her and you are able to see her whenever you like. It's hard but will get easier with time and try to see it as a positive in that you will now have more time to spend with your horse.
