I'm thankful for all I have, even though I may whine a blue streak and have some random pity parties, I'm sincerely thankful for what I have in my life.
Heading towards the New Year, we're still working on reducing the herd, but in this economy I'm not pushing the sales very hard. Too many people are in financial predicaments, and I hate to see someone take on payments that can easily get away from them. That and its hard to compete with the number of low quality horses for sale on Craigs List for $200, makes selling registered good quality horses hard.
But considering my life circumstances and the changes coming in the next year. I don't have options but to keep working to find good homes for the ones that need to move along. My goal is to get under 30, which means half the herd has to leave in the next two years.
It's going to be hard, but that's the goal! So, I need to get all the horses that are for sale on the sales list - bleah! Not a fun project, but its time.
I've also decided as I want to get to a certain number, I'm not breeding in 2012 and may not in 2013 depending on how life works out.
Fortunately it's been raining so our hills are green - got to love Northern California winters - and the horses are loving the extra pasture.
