I am now officially horse-less.
I didn't think it was going to be as tough as it was, putting Celtic on the trailer and watching her go, but as she always did, when we were closing the door she was looking back at us with her adorable face, ears perked. I knew she always did this no matter what, but it still pulled at the heart strings to see her packed up and gone.
I know it's for the best, but didn't make it easy.
Am heading down to the big city this week for some courses and am setting up a couple test rides for a few horses I have heard of through friends. I think it's kind of neat since I haven't actually seen the horses yet, only heard from several different sources about their way of going and personality. I'm not looking for something with bucket loads of talent, but something that I can ride/work with and get along with now.
Here's hoping the search goes well, and stays within budget!
