For a few months now we have been selling off part of our herd. As hard as it has been to say goodbye to some of my favorite angels I am relieved to say they are all finally gone!! Of course I mean the ones we wanted gone! We still have 6 horses which is a very comfortable number for me!!
One of the horses I sold a few months ago but I have been boarding her until her new family could get boarding in town situated. Finally Sunday they showed to pick her up, however we weren't home... Of course I told them we wouldn't be home that evening but I guess they hoped to do it on their own. Well she is a 2 year old filly that has not been in a trailer since I brought her home at 4 months of age! They brought a slant load trailer which they did have the dividers open but she wasn't having it! J was the only one home and was calling me looking for words of wisdom I finally just told them we'd deliver her on Monday. So Monday after the Hubby got off work his brother came to help which I was thankful for since someone had to hold the camera! Me of course!! They got her loaded and I actually didn't get but a couple of pics cause I was trying to help with my 5 lb weight hanging from my neck!
Also gone from the ranch is the Hubby's dad's 3 yr old gelding. He is off to the trainers to be broke and I think dad will then keep him local near the town he lives in after the breaking is done and then has plans to sell him. It amazes me how you can have a horse in an environment with certain horses he is the bottom of the barrel but then he was moved to another group of our horses because of weaning the younger ones and he then decided that he was going to rule the roost! He couldn't be around his mama as he would try and nurse at his 3 years of age and she was put where he used to be so he was put with our 2 yr old and two yearlings, he was always being a brat to the boys! They would not stand up to him!! The yearling filly however did not hesitate to kick back when he'd mess with her! They always amaze me!
