We said good-bye to Mouse…

I found the perfect home for him a couple of weeks ago. Turns out, she was familiar with navicular. A real lovely woman with tons of knowledge and experience. A woman who has top notch western pleasure horses. Having been to the Quarter Horse Congress Show, with several wins under her belt, I knew she was the right home. She met Mouse, rode him bareback in the yard, and told us he was going to be a great horse for her 11 year old son.

Her son needed a horse that he can ride when she goes to the shows. Something she could trust. Mouse is a perfect kid horse. It didn’t take long for her to make a decision to take him home. It was music to my ears. Not only was she getting a wonderful mount for her son, but my heart felt a moment of peace for the first time, in a long time. We had found someone who could give him a new start. Something we hadn’t been able to accomplish. It was tearful. I almost had reservations of letting him go. However, I knew it was the best opportunity for Mouse.

The woman took a picture of us. Mouse was loaded in the trailer and off they went. It was a bitter-sweet good-bye.

  1. It’s always a sad day when you must part ways with an old friend . But getting a solid owner who will care properly care for your mount is indeed invaluable. With the price of feed and property a lot of owners have had to downsize. 😦

    There are times we have to make choices based on the interest of the animal. I hated having to get rid of him. It was for the best.
