We're coming down to the last week and a half before we move to Indiana and we still can not find a house on enough land that is fenced so we can take our horses. The boarding facilities around where we're moving to (because of the Army not by choice) charge around $300 per horse and that doesn't include feeding. We can't afford that.
Which means I can't take my horses. I don't know what to do. I don't want to sell them or give them away but I know I'm being selfish. I need to find them good homes and fast but I'm crying just thinking about not seeing them everyday. I can barely stand to think of not seeing them ever again.
I'm going to talk to my husband about taking Carolina with us. The house we have found and hopefully can get, has a full care boarding facility with a trainer, riding facilities, etc on the spot. One horse I know we can afford to board.
Maybe you could find someone where you are now to board the other horse until you have a chance to settle in at the new place. Once you are in the neighbourhood you may find you have more options than what you can find from a distance.
Keep looking for other places. Ask around if you can because I know I have taken horses in short time boarding for a few $ and feeding was included. Maybe you can leave them somewhere where you are now and bring them later. Don't give up looking I know what you mean about not being able to see them again. I tear up just thinking about it.
Hope all works out for you.
Oh my I hear you and feel your heart break.I am so sorry,but I pray you can at least take one horse and that you find a wonderful home for your Maggie.That will be hard enough.Please know that I am thinking of you and wish you all the best....hope it all works out...good luck.
