I don't know if I've mentioned this before or not, but I co-own another horse with a good friend. She hasn't ridden much in the past few years so it only makes sense that she shouldn't pay board anymore.
My friend called me and told me that she wanted to sell Tantra and her tack. My first response was, "Sell your tack...it's worth plenty of money. Let me find Tantra a home." At the time, I thought I would place her just like I do my rescue dogs. I'd find the perfect home and make the people sign a contract that stated she would come back to me if they ever decided they didn't want her.
My second thought was: I love Tantra. My granddaughter loves Tantra. The best place for Tantra is with us! My friend totally agreed. She wants the best thing for Tantra too.
So now, I'm in the business of finding someone to lease Tantra to pay for her board. That lease will demand that Tantra stays with me at the farm where I have Tango. I will start to ride Tantra more and my granddaughter will continue to ride her (along with the person who leases).
We've decided we're going to ride Tantra western....rather my granddaughter decided that. I'm up for it too. What the heck. I can ride Tango one way and Tantra the other. Maybe it will work different muscle groups! I have my first western lesson on Monday.
Meanwhile, please wish us well. We need to find someone else to love Tantra as much as we do. I promised Chuck that the board for two horses would be covered by my business plan. Imagine that...me with a business plan!!!
