My two yellow labs are fine. They get me out and about walking every day.
My horses are in a good place and I have come to an agreement with the farm owner. Financially I have had a hard time to afford my two horses without a job. Work is not coming fast enough to save the day, so I have put the younger horse up for sale. I hate to do it, as I have had her for 7 years since she was 2 yrs old, but I can't make it all work right now.
The older horse is 22 and I will keep her until she dies. She is great to ride, very safe, and a salt of the earth type of girl. She has taught me so much and I have had her since she was 16 yrs old.
Because of my divorce two years ago I had to move an hour and 10 minutes away from my horses (I hardly see them these days), and there is no cheaper place to keep them around here. I only pay for their food and they are both used in a children's lesson program. I do not pay a board fee. It would be hard to find this situation elsewhere, and I am in New England where the closer you get to the shore, the more expensive it is to board horses.
You guessed it, I am closer to the water now where I spent about a year and a half with my boyfriend who is now deceased. At some point I will be heading to the west coast, either this fall or next fall to be with my family. I will have to ship my riding horse and that will be very expensive.
Again...one day at a time. One never knows what is just around the corner. Thanks for asking.
