I don’t think I care ever sell my Kali. Not just because I love her and it would rip my heart into two(thought I do and it would). But because of the awful things I’ve seen done to horses. So often it isn’t from people trying to be mean, but simple ignorance.
If the day comes when I can out race her and need a step up horse, she will either retire or I’ll find her a new job. I don’t would her being a child’s pony to have her face rip off and poked by misplaced spurs. I don’t want her ran every weekend for someone’s goal of a paycheck. I want her where I can keep her safe, that will always be with me. I love her and live for our time together.
This is why I’m so freaked about my mom having some of our horses for sale. Like, those are our babies and who knows where they’ll end up when they’re out of our care.
I know! Even if you find a great home who is to say they’ll stay there for long? What is stopping a horse from falling into an auction and sold off to god knows who?
