Good news.....Bad news

I think I mentioned in previous ramblings that I was considering some changes in my life and horse life. I have done my soul searching and much discussing with my family and have come to some life altering decisions for all of us. Good news first, I have decided I will go back to work full time after the first of the year. I will put Harley in training as in with a trainer, something I have never done in all of my horse owning days. I will show in cattle classes this next year even if I am not totally 100% sure of myself. I will survive the bad news that I am about to tell you all. OK, here it is ......

Bad news, I have decided to reduce my herd to only Harley to better use my small amount of horse time. This of course means selling Wilson the wonder pony and worst of all parting with my beloved Tank. I say parting because I really am not sure I can sell him and he would have to go to an amazing person who truly loved him. I am considering all options here. I have Wilson advertised already for a Christmas pony and a great first pony he would be! He is a 12yr old welsh type black gelding that is 11 hands tall, very sweet and gentle. I have contacted a therapeutic riding facility about Tank and am awaiting their reply. Tank is a 27 year old QH who has done everything in life from jumping to cattle classes and oh the miles we have trail ridden. He is totally sound and in great health so if any of you know of a deserving person looking for a pasture mate or a special horse to ride and love contact me privately at cmele@bcremc.net
The good news about me parting with Tank is that I know whoever does adopt him will learn so much and be loved so much. Life is about changes and I guess I will adjust to this change as well .

I'm so sorry to read this. I know that you will find the right home for Tank. If I could, I'd take him, but it's not possible. He sounds like an angel and being a therapeutic riding horse would probably give him great pleasure and meaning. The kids will adore him. And his love and lessons will always be with you.
