Last night Kim and I signed papers on Marigold. She is going to stay at my place till she's paid off and then probably board here until at least next Spring.
Saturday, Annie and I will trailer Spots to his new facility and settle him in. Saturday is also his 5th birthday. I have never owned a horse for more than 5 years. I thought Spots would be the first one. Apparently not. I will own him exactly 5 years, lol.
I have been dealing with knowing this is coming all week. I'm excited about it because I want her to love him and want him to be a great using horse, and at the same time I am really going to miss him. Partly because is the last link to his dad, who was my dream-horse, and partly because he is my buddy, and partly because is just such a nice riding horse. Annie and I plan to settle him in and go eat lunch and mourn. Then, I am going to buy a Breyer horse.
In addition to selling the horses, I am going to sell most of my tack. I haven't figured out the best way to list it yet, but I will link to it all here at the very least, if I don't just post it all on the blog.
