It's (almost) a done deal...
The cheque is in the mail...
She signed on the dotted line...
Thunder is moving to Calgary soon. Probably by month's end. He'll be paid for in full by the 20th at the latest.
A woman saw him advertised on the internet and is buying him, based only on some photos and a video.
I've spoken to her at length, as has my girlfriend, the horse trainer, who takes horses for sale on consignment... where he's been listed with her for eleven freaking long months!
I'm so relieved that he's finally been sold. The financial burden has been tremendous.
And I am so sad that I am losing such a lovely creature... I've cried a number of times in the past few days, despite many months of disassociating myself from being a horse owner/rider.
But it is for the best for both of us. And I am sure she'd let me visit if I am out that way. (I do have a brother in Calgary, after all.)
I hope, I hope, I hope he'll be happy and well cared for. I hope. *sigh* *sniffle* *sob*
