I've waited a week or so to write this post just to avoid ruining my keyboard by crying on it...but Cady has got a new home.
She travelled north last Thursday, to live on a farm with the trainer who helped me so much with her when she was five.
Gail has known Cady for a long time and knows her pretty well, so was the first person I spoke to when I decided she needed a new home.
Fortunately, Gail wanted her, and I feel confident they're going to get along just fine.
Keeping two horses had become too much for my bank account, and since Rodney does everything I want, it was the sensible choice. But still not easy - for five years Cady's been on my mind and part of every day (often a big part) and she's definitely a horse to remember, because she's taught me a lot.
I'll be keeping in touch with Gail and visiting soon, but so far she's settled well and her new bestie is Dottie, the one-eyed shetland.
For now, here are some of my fave pics of her over the past few years:
Happy horsing everyone x
