About a month ago a gal from Colorado contacted me to see if Rose was still for sale. At this point, as you all know, I had decided to take her off the market and try and just make my crazy post-baby life somewhat work with a show horse. To be honest, it wasn't working, but I was trying. So of course I said that they were welcome to come take a look and I'd entertain an offer. They liked her a lot and arranged to come back up from Colorado today for the vet check and potential purchase. Check and check (literally).
After transferring all her paperwork, I suddenly realized that in the course of a couple hours Rose was no longer my horse. I've only mentioned the sale to a couple of my relatives/friends, as most people I know don't even
The new owner is an eventer and a really nice gal. She's welcomed me to visit her and Rose anytime I'm in Colorado. I do have several friends that have moved down there in the past few years, so it is likely that I'd be down for a visit at some point in the future. I am excited to see where she takes Rose in the eventing world. I have a feeling she's going to rock Prelim...but baby steps. She's yet to even jump a cross country log! So, I am very happy about who I sold her to and that definitely makes it easier. I will miss my girl that I know for sure. Now I'm just left to wonder how I am going to cope without a horse for the first time in four years. Back to begging rides off of friends I suppose. That is until we purchase land. Then the colt shopping will start and a whole new adventure in colt starting will begin.
For now though I'm just gonna sit back and try and let it sink in that I just sold my horse. Weirdness.
Happy trails and swooshing tails!
