so i'm going to take a moment here and write a really self-centered, emo post. just bear with me and you'll soon be returned to your regular programming.
i've decided that i give up on trusting anybody or taking anyone at their word anymore. all it ever results in is me getting my feelings hurt or heart broken and feeling utterly let down. i just can't fucking go through it anymore. i'm definitely done trusting horse people. you all already know the story of reggie, but now there's a new one. last week, a lady who i met last year emailed me, wondering if i would be interested in trading bailey for a two-year-old egyptian arabian stallion that she has. i more or less jumped at the chance. bailey has been for sale for over a year because i'm really more into trail riding now and he's really not. this arab was going to be my endurance horse. so i've spent the last few days on the phone trying to get the paperwork arranged to get bailey down to owensboro. yesterday afternoon, the woman emailed me asking if i'd be interested in splitting the cost of getting the arab's sire nominated for the incentive fund because she has the horse's half-brother who she's going to keep. i emailed her back about it, saying i'd be up for it. then a few hours later she emailed me back saying that she'd changed her mind and is going to keep the arab.
so.. i fucking give up on people. i'm done trusting anyone, it's just not worth it.
