Some of you may have seen this coming, I suppose all good things come to an end at some point don't they?

In a nutshell; me and OH are moving to East Yorkshire and I can't take Zebedee with me. We've not even exchanged on the house yet but things have changed at the yard. With all the worry I've had over Zeb this Spring/Summer and the lack of control to be able to do anything about it I've just not enjoyed it at all. I've hardly done anything with him. Maybe in a way it was a good thing as it has forced me to back off, in my mind it's over so there's no point in prolonging it, it just makes me feel worse.

So last night OH came to the yard with me and helped me pack up my things and bring them home, it was horrible but a bit of a relief at the same time.

I'm feeling very low this morning, could do with some cyber hugs from my EW friends :crying:

Massive hugs, I'm sorry to read this but totally understand why you have to move on:(. I had to leave Theo when I moved to Oz and I know just how hard it is.

Looking ahead (positive thinking), will you look for a loan/share/buy once you have moved?

Chin up Xx

Thanks Laura. Yes I will look for another share once we've moved. It's a very horsey area so I'm hopefull I'll find a good share.

Thanks Sam. And I must apologise for not giving you the info for that rug, I'm rubbish aren't I. If you're still interested let me know x

Madbee I'm moving to Pocklington. I'm not sure how far that is from you? Maybe an hour? I'd love to meet the lovely Betty and thank you for the offer that would be great :D. Maybe once I've moved I can come meet you for a cuppa? xxx

I'm so sorry Cat, I didn't realise you were moving. You've had loads of fun with Zeb so now it's time to give that much love to another pony. Although I must say...owning is where it's at :evilgrin:

What sad news. Zeb is so lovely. I know just how you feel - I had to leave my little Paws behind and it broke my heart.

You HAVE to visit me during your FR holiday!

Can I tempt you with a very sweet Standardbred mare for 300? Not mine, but going for meat if she doesn't sell within a week or two :(

fofo
12th July 2011, 01:38 PM
Aww Cat I am so sorry. I can't imagine you without your Zeb. :(

Moving can be a very cathartic process. You will have lots of new and lovely things to come and a lucky horse is waiting for you somewhere.

Thank you everyone, its really helped to know that you all understand :)

Easyrider im sure seeing pictures of Thomas will put a lump in my throat but he is sooooo gorgeous i still wouldnt deny myself a peek!

Gem, unfortunately I can't afford to buy or even loan in the short term. Boo! Oh Liz she sounds a sweety, it's so sad. I hope someone nice snaps her up soon :( I'd love to visit you, I'm on a mission to meet as many EWers as possible but Daytona and Burnie are the bosses, I'm just tagging along as the new comer :o If we can't make it I'd love to come down and see you another time, I do have a secret soft spot for Hasty I must say...

Jane you have hit the nail on the head regarding the move. I'm so looking forward to my new life with OH. I will have more time and a better quality of life so who knows what the future will hold. It feels weird to be sad and excited at the same time, my head is spinning.

Hey missus that makes us sound like a right pair of hitlers :miffed: :p
I think we should be able to make a detour to see Liz. As soon as we get up in those hills we are always looking out for a galloping hasty across the tops. :D

The time has come then chick, as you say its the end of an era, you have given Zeb a fantastic life whilst you have been with him and now its time for him to enjoy lazy days in his retirement. Big huge hugs to you cant wait to see what the next chapter of your equine future holds.

Big hugs Cat xxxx

Good luck with the move and everything xxx hugs xxx

Rhea hun yeah I tried to buy him once but his owner couldn't part with him, I don't blame her, so when I told her I was moving we both knew I'd have to leave him behind x
