Well... although I thought the worst was over financially for my hubby and I, I guessed wrong. A few weeks ago, we got some bad news. No, not a layoff, but a pay cut substantial enough to make owning a horse a totally bad idea right now. I have been so sad, and hopeful that things would change, that I've put off writing this post for several weeks. But I guess it's time to tell you all that the wonderful lady who was boarding/training Penny for me has decided to keep her. I am indescribably heartbroken, but also so thankful that she agreed to do so. I know that she will make sure that Penny NEVER ends up at the auction again. I in NO WAY regret saving Penny... this has been an amazing, if short journey... but I guess it was too good to be true for me right now. Please send some good thoughts to Penny, now re-named "Bree," as she starts her new life in earnest.
I will leave this blog up as a record of our all too brief time together :-P... but I want y'all to know that I am not giving up on my dream of having a horse again. Things look promising for better financial times ahead in 2012... so I will probably start a new blog chronicling my continued adventures of getting back into horses. As much as I want to... I just can't stay away ;)
