Rosie gets a new home

We decided that perhaps it was time to find Rosie a new home.  She really deserves more individual attention and we had hoped that we could find her a family that had kids that would love her as much as we have.  And we were going to be selective.  I put carefully written ads online, listing her as an adoption, and hoped that we would get some really good responses.  Rosie is definitely pony sized but rides more like a horse and is very well trained.  She isn't for a complete beginner as she's still got some pep to her and she's very responsive.  I got a reply to an ad from a woman named Julie.  She was looking for a kid safe pony for her 9 year old daughter to ride.  Her current horse has developed some issues and wasn't a good fit anyone.  One catch - Julie lives 3 1/2 hours away.  She was willing to drive out to see her so we made plans for yesterday.  Her 9 year old daughter Logan is absolutely adorable and did well on Rosie.  They loaded her up in the trailer and drove Rosie to her new home late yesterday.  We are thrilled that Rosie will have a girl that will love her and take excellent care of her and we know that she will bloom with Logan.  I am happy that she found an awesome home but sad to see her go.  We wish you well, Rosie, and many happy years with Logan!!

It must be difficult to send such a beautiful and loved animal off to a new home - made only somewhat easier knowing its the "right thing" and that the new home will be a good one.

That is so wonderful.

I think of parting with mine...but have been unable to go that next step.

Sounds like Rosie will be going to a good home. That was a tough thing for you to do.

I have to thank you for allowing us to bring Rosie home with us yesterday Logan is so excited to have found a pony like Rosie. After the long 3 and a half hour ride home Logan jumped out of the truck and got Rosie unloaded and fed her supper with a smile ear to ear. We will keep in touch. Thanks again for such a great pony.
