Oh, how lovely! I was too late to suggest a name. I would have suggested tulip or tidbit though! But, I like the name chosen. I just recently had to sell my beloved horse
He was rescued from an auction and in rather bad shape, he was a little thin when I let him go, but much better then the 300 lbs he had been under weight. He had bad feet problems I couldn't take care of so because I loved him so much I sold him to some one who could take on that, he required corrective shoes, I did all I could for him and found a home to do the rest. I didn't have a good enough place and it was always muddy so he kept getting abcesses and I couldn't stand seeing him in any pain, so now he is gone. I miss him so much. My four year old girl could climb all over him and walk right under him and he wouldn't move. He was always so careful around her. I haven't gone near the barn since he left (8/16) my mother-in-law feels so bad about how sad I have been and she bought a "family horse" I know why she did it and it was a nice gesture but I won't go near him, any of them it's not the same (she got a gelding because I like them better and he is a black mustang, I really like black and she thought it would get me ridding again, but he's not my Nika (Nikadeamus), and I won't ride him. I don't want to go riding any more.
Sorry for saddening your happy thread. I shouldn't have but I haven't talked about it and it felt good to.
