Today’s the day that the Foster Parent and I make a decision- is she going to be Foster’s new mom? I still hope so.
It’s bittersweet to want this to work out. But I’ve been able to see Foster a few times since dropping him off two months ago, and though it’s taken some getting used to seeing the changes that come with a horse going from stall board to living outdoors 24/7 (i.e, scratches, nicks, wooly coat), he seems happy.
It’s also been reaffirming that when I hop on him, not much has changed lameness-wise. He still has a slight hop when trotting right, and I can tell he’s much happier walking, although it’s Foster, so what else is new. The only thing better than walking is standing.
Obviously I didn’t expect 2 months of turnout and light riding to cure him, but it was interesting to see that even with the most minimal of work, he’s still not going to be a competitive sporthorse. No, its much kinder to him to live life as a spoiled trail horse.
We’ll see what this day brings. But either way, Foster is well loved and forever a treasure.
❤ I hope this works out as that situation seems ideal for him.
Thinking of you today and hoping for all the best 🙂
Fingers crossed that everything works out as it’s meant to.
Fingers crossed that everything works out well!
I hope everyone is able to help find the best solution for Foster!
Fingers crossed. His happiness is the most important, and he looks pretty happy there!
Hugs to you.
I hope it works out!
Sending good vibes for Foster’s future!!! What a great place for him to be a happy pony if it works out!!!
