One of the biggest concerns of moving was how to make it the least stressful for our two 33 year old horses, Sporty and Passion. Sporty had already had one eye removed and was beginning to lose sight in the other. Passion, I had promised after her 7 year abandonment that she would never have to move again. Cognitively, I knew this was not the same, but my heart ached putting her on that trailer. I did my best to reassure her she still had her forever home.
Because the new property did not have any horse shelter and we did not know how long it would be before we could build a barn, two run-ins were set up.
Sporty and Passion moved into The Retirement Home that was purchased from and brought in by Grandpa's Shelters. This company was a joy to work with and this was a wonderful purchase for our elderly friends.
Sporty and Passion adjusted to their new home with all the strength of character that a 33 year old horse clearly posseses. What a blessing this pair of mares have been to each other and each of us.
