Re: Luna might be off for pastures new....
thanks for the support everyone, I appreciate it. P.s - my back (coccyx) is much better thanks....back in the saddle - very cautiously! Although the first day back on board I managed to hit the deck again after a massive spook!!! Silly Dulcie....might just need some super glue!
Well, I went to visit the yard that Luna will be going to. It is lovely, with beautiful flat DRY paddocks, which are post and rail fenced, with a nice thick hedge down one side. There is a school and the stables are lovely too. She will be sharing a field with two other mares and there are fields with horses on two sides - they can reach over and groom each other over the fence. There is also a farm ride around the farmers fields. In fact it was so lovely that I asked if I could move there too! - sadly it is an hour away from where I live!!! lol
Bascially, I have no excuse not to let her go - it's only for 5-6 months and it's a lovely home where she wil be out and about, being ridden and having fun.
I am going to speak to my insurance company tomorrow to see where i stand with insuring her, and write a draft loan agreement using the BHS template. Then, all being well, I am going to take her next week..
I still feel wretched and next week i am guessing that I'll be a jibbering sobbing emotional wreck when I leave her there...but it's best for her and will leave me time to get going properly with Dulcie.
