First, thank you all so much for your wonderful kind words on my last post. I felt supported and loved, which I really need in this rough moment.
M and I dropped Lex off at her new home today--she is going to be a broodmare at the astonishingly beautiful Hickory Tree Farm in Middleburg. It's about the best place for a horse to live. The broodmares all get groomed daily and lots of personal attention. They're clearly the owner's favorites. And the fun thing is, I not only have right of first refusal on Lex, but also on her first baby who doesn't want to run (for free!).
When we walked into the barn, Lex looked around like, "Finally, you two. This is what I have always wanted." She took a deep breath and enjoyed looking out the window of her enormous stall. I didn't want to annoy anyone by taking a million pictures, but I snuck one in.
I'm happy she's there but I miss her so much. The owner gave me the gate code and said I can visit whenever I like, which I will do next week. It might be painful to see her for awhile but I think the more I detail I can keep in my mind about how good she has it, the better.
I'll have more updates on the other equines soon. Everyone is doing well. Love all these ponies, even though I hate how bad I feel right now because of that silly mare.
