And Then There Were Two

Sorry for not posting that often! I'm in the middle of moving (which sucks) and preparing for Inavale so there hasn't been a whole lot of time, or energy, to sit down and write.

The title refers to the fact that Queenie finally sold. I hadn't mentioned it because I didn't want to jinx it, but she went on trial over a week ago and last Thursday, it was final! Her new owner, GK, came down and rode her a couple weeks ago. Queenie was ok with her, but got a little rushy. GK was a little nervous around her because she was so big, though she is an experienced horseperson. GK wanted to take her on trial so she could take her on the trails around her house since that's what she wanted her for. I think a major selling point is that she had her 11 year old daughter handle Queenie and it was adorable. Queenie put her head down and let the little girl lead her around. So cute!

I dropped Queenie off at her new digs and GK had already bought her a nice new "Queenie-sized" leather halter, even though nothing was final yet. But after spending a week with her, how could you not fall in love??

I stressed about it all week, I even had a nightmare, but when Thursday rolled around (the deadline for deciding whether or not to return Queenie) and I got the sweetest text: " We absolutely LOVE Queenie! She has become a member of our family and is loved by all of us. I've only ridden her twice but I already know we're a fit. We will own and cherish her forever as one of our own. Feel free to cash the check and rest assured that she is cherished. We beyond love her! She will live a pampered life. She has had 1000 kisses and 100 carrots in a week and many more to come for the next 20 years. Thank you"

Aww, I'm so happy! Nothing better than finding her the perfect home :)


  1. Yay! I'm glad she found such a great home

  2. Awww, that's fantastic! Sounds like she has the perfect home.

  3. Her new family sounds awesome!! Such a lucky horse. I'm glad you found the best home for her.

  4. Loves a happy ending that involves a wonderful new beginning

  5. Awwww sounds like an ideal home!

  6. Aw - sure sounds like she has landed on her feet. What a lovely text to receive, may the new family have many happy years with Queenie!

    Hope all goes well with the move!
