Goodbye Easy

nodp
I skipped church this morning to go pick up my trailer at Trista's in Hamilton and to meet the young lady who wants to give Easy a new career. Her name is Jennifer and she rides mostly English, which is exactly the job I have always envisioned for this horse. After quite a bit of "coaxing" Easy loaded into their single horse trailer and was off to San Antonio and his new home. Jennifer has 4 weeks to decide if they are a perfect match - if not, he'll come back to me and probably be allowed to do pretty much whatever he wants for the rest of his life. I am praying they work well together, though, because I have a feeling that Easy will get the attention and direction and care for the rest of his days that he deserves.
Oh, and Jennifer - I did notice that you have a BIG birthday this month. :-) Pretty good gift, I'd say!

It's hard to part with animals, especially horses where you hope they will make a good match with their new partner. I hope it works out with you. We sold a horse last year that need a job to do all the time and was too much for us to handle. She went to a hunter/jumper facility and couldn't be happier, but it's still hard to part with them. Hope things work out! Jennifer

Thanks, Jen. I wouldn't let him go except to someone who will do him right, and I feet totally confident that he is with the right match. Besides, he's so lovable that I know he will be adored!

Oh I'm sad. But he will be a happy boy...

Debbie, I remember when you mentioned giving up Easy , I was concerned and you wrote me a nice note explaining how he needed exercise and more attention. It was so caring of you.
I'm glad for you and him and Jennifer.
He sure is a handsome HUNK!

You will have to let us know if Easy worked out in his new home. He is a gorgeous horse and I think I have a painting you painted of his gentle and sweet eye! Thanks for thinking of him that is so selfless and I applaud you for that tough decision. Maria
