Saying Goodbye

Well today was one of the hardest I have had in a long time. Don and I had decided that we needed to fined new homes for our kids.

 Dancer and Flash are spending the last few minutes in the paddock while we are getting their stuff together. Saddles, tack and of course their toys.

 Flash was the brave one and went first. He was a little bit hesitant at first but only for a few seconds. He wasn't sure what was going on.

It didn't take very long and he went right in. He is such a brave boy.
 Next it was Dancer's turn. She too didn't know what was going on.

 I, of course, had to give her one last hug before getting her loaded.
 I think you can see the sadness in her eyes below. That is why you can't see my face.

 Dancer was such a good girl. She jumped right in the trailer with no hesitation at all.
Below you can see the sadness in Flashes eyes. It was a sad day for all of us except the people who got them. They were very happy and they should be, they got two very good horses.

 Here we were just tying up Dancer and Don was giving her a pat on the butt goodbye.

 Of course I couldn't get the lead tied so Don had to do it for me. I think it was a brain fart, didn't want to really let her go. We had built such a good bond with each other.

 But we got them loaded and the people also got the cart that we were going to have Flash trained to pull. The people who got the horses were interested in the cart also and she has six kids that can help with the training.

I had to take this last picture for a goodbye. Will miss them terribly, but I think it is for the best for them, although you couldn't tell by me right now.


  1. That must have been a difficult decision, given how much you both loved them. Glad you were able to find them a good, loving home together.

  2. Thank you Susan. Yes it was very difficult but we both knew it would be for the best for the horses. We couldn't spend the time needed for them and the family that we gave them to have six kids. They should get lots of love and attention. We also have visiting rights. Score...
