Saying Goodbye

     today i had to say goodbye to two of my horses; belle and silkie. we could not afford to keep them, so i sold them to a friend of my mom, who knows horses very well and has promised to give them a good home.
     we have had silkie for 9 years, and belle 6. i really can't believe they are gone.
     i'm keeping max, belle's foal; he's four years old and is the sweetest thing ever... i couldn't bring myself to sell him along with the other two. i'm hoping i can pay for his training and he'll turn out to be a good horse.
     i went up to the barn this morning to comb their manes and brush them down... it was a nice, quiet last few minutes with them...
     it's hard to say goodbye.
