My horse sold

So my horse Rosie is sold!

I've posted a little about her, her lameness, and whether I should advertise her for free or not so I just thought I'd give an update.

I'd been planning on keeping her long term, possibly forever, even after I found she wouldn't be up to proper work ever but lately I've been feeling she's just forgotten in a paddock, and I'm broke trying to save for another horse that I can ride and cover her costs.

I ended up advertising her for $200, willing to give her away for free to the right home. I'd had her advertised as "negotiable" for a while, but got many more genuine responses for $200. Only one person came to look, and she was the first to call, and I delivered Rosie today!

She's going to a woman with a young family who owns 80 acres and already has 2 horses. She's looking for something mainly as a companion for hers, as they get a bit upset when she works with only one, and maybe for some trails. It seems lovely out there and should hopefully be a forever home.

I'm a bit sad :(

Understandably so. Sucks having to make those decisions doesn't it?

When you get the right one, that's all it takes. My neighbor took her main riding horse camping this W/E. Her youngster has been calling for two days-does not like being alone.
