But I got the pics and info. And I was immediately conflicted. Torn between "this was meant to be" and "this is too eerie to deal with".
|Blondie on the left. Not a great pic, but the best I can find at this angle. We sold her last fall, when we decided to downsize the herd (and the hay bill). I've regretted selling her the most, after losing Rita and Sugar this winter.|
|Another shot of Blondie.|
|This is the older mare. Her name is Ginger.|
The people she's with now bought her at auction last May. She was their first horse. They have 6 kids, and they've all been learning to ride on her. Their daughter's been taking her to shows and is ready to advance into hunter/jumper classes. Their only complaint is the cost of feeding her through the winter. They've had her on an assortment of grains, most recently feeding her Hi Fat Hi Fiber. That was going ok, until their recent purchase of a gelding who chased her off her feed and gobbled it up for himself. He's been gaining a lot of unnecessary weight, and she's been getting thinner. Complications. I can relate. Bella was always stealing everyone else's grains and treats.
So it was decided. She'll be coming to live with us soon, possibly tomorrow. They'll be delivering her as soon as they can.
