|About the time Jen and Josh graduated from High School we started to make a few lifestyle changes. Our small barn was getting emptier. Now with mostly horses we found ourselves with a couple of ponies that were too small for anyone to ride. With no Grandchildren expected anytime soon the decision was made to find new homes for them where they would be loved by a new group of young children. Ric's horse a very old and sweet mare died of old age that year and we were left with just two rideable horses. My palomino and Jen's jumper. Jen quickly found that with her college classes she just didn't have the time for her horse and my allergies that had been getting progressively worse became a real issue. An hour in the barn caring for the horses would produce a serious asthma attack. The decision was made to find homes for all the horses. After 18 years of looking out my kitchen window and watching them play in our small pasture. With a life centered around the lifestyle of horse ownership it wasn't an easy decision. As a 4H leader I had many friends in the equine world and we easily found very good homes for our beloved horses. Within two years my life was now open to new experiences. The time and $$ that had gone into the horses was now available for something different. Travel.............
