As many of you know, I recently lost my horse and partner, Eddie. I now have a big emptiness in my life and am searching for another horse to love and give a home to.
Searching for another horse isn’t easy. I still get emotional from time to time. Having owned Eddie for 15 years, it is not easy letting go and moving on. He was a big part of me in my life and we went through a lot in the past years. He was a part of my family. It’s something that’s hard to forget. Letting go of someone or something that has been a big part of your life for many years is not easy.
The same holds true when it’s time to move on and sell your horse property. Many memories were made during the many years of ownership. It is hard to give something like that up.
I have seen Seller’s uncertain about selling their horse property when an offer comes in. They know very well that they must move on with their lives, but their emotions try to stop them. It is a very emotional time. Do they really want to leave the horse property that has so many memories? Will the next owners make memories of their own and put the care and love into the property as you did?
When I lost my horse property in my divorce, emotions were running high at the settlement table. The new owners decided to demolish the house my family and I lived in for so many years in order to build their dream home. I actually cried when I drove by and saw the rubble. The history just laying there in one big pile. It felt like I lost a friend.
The future is uncertain for all of us. The best we can do is keep the memories alive in our hearts and continue on with our lives. Wherever we end up, we can give the next place our care and loving and create more memories to carry on.
