Truth should be everpresent.
Still have not got the chicken pen built. I have mentioned it to a few people but that is as far as it seems to have gotten. Depressing to think about.

Still have all 9 horses and 3 do not have a barn. They have blankets to keep them warm but that does not get them out of the mud. If it was up to me I would give most of them away but it is DH's decision. He does not want to let them go. I understand it would feel like failure to him but they need to go. He says we would lose money on them because they are thin, and they are, but we lose money everytime we have to buy a load of feed. He buys the feed so I guess I cannot complain about that but I am the one who is physically having to do the work of feeding them. It is hard on me. All i can do is pray about it but it feels like God is not concerned about this particular problem of mine. When I think about having to care for them in the cold, I get a stomach ache and feel so overwhelmed. I would love so much to go home for a visit. It has been 3 years. But I know as long as we have all these animals, especially the horses, we will never get to go. My folks will not be able to come up anymore because my Poppa has macular degeneration and his sight is going fast. He cannot drive anymore and my Momma is 80 and cannot make the drive by herself. It is 14 hours and too much for her. So I will not get to see them again as long as we have these horses. That is very sad.

But DH is doing better physically. Healing nicely and is taking hyperbaric treatments. They tire him out but he is healing well.
So at least there is some good news.

I feel the need to pray that your hubby will change his mind about the horses as it is just too much on you physically to have to continue caring for them. When he could do it himself, it could be argued that it made sense but not now. The fact that you feel they are not getting the best of care should enter into the mix of reasons to let them go elsewhere. That all makes sense and that doesn't even take into account the fact that they are costing money you don't need to part with for animal care.

I agree with Elena... if the horses aren't being properly cared for then it is inhumane to keep them. It would be best for the horses to help them find a new loving home. Perhaps your husband needs to be reminded of that. It is not failure to provide the best possible home for your animals, even if that means having them go to a new person.

I'm glad to hear that your husband is getting better. I hope you are feeling better soon, too!

I totally agree but there is nothing more I can do but try to do the best I can. My DH is not a bad person. He has just had a bad time for quite a while now. I am working hard to take care of things. They are fed very well. Just need a barn. It's hard here in winter. I am going to sell a goat soon. Maybe all 3 and some chickens too.
