Goodbye, dear ponies!

Dancer and Allegra are off to a new home!

When we were first here we gladly took on a couple of miniature horses from Margo, a neighbour to the west of us. Margo and Clarence’s property adjoins ours.

For some time we had been thinking of finding a better home for Dancer and Allegra especially as ‘sizing down’ was important to us being able to live here for many more years.

Margo will keep Allegra but has found a great new place for Dancer. Margo has been a breeder of miniature horse for many years.

So when I wrote yesterday in a reply to your responses: “The morning calls for other things to be done, more details later ,…” this is what was going on.

Some pictures to remember.

Saying goodbye.


The open gate to a better tomorrow!


Goodbye, dear Dancer and Allegra!

  1. That is a little sad, as I am sure you and Jean have enjoyed Dancer and Alegra’s presence at the ranch. But yes, downsizing is important when responsibilities become more work than you can take on.
    Web had a very sad/bad housesitting experience last year with a dying Weimarana and it left me in complete meltdown with my emotions. I have, for partly that reason, decided not to house sit pets any longer. It is a difficult decision because I love dogs, but it is also because I love dogs that I do not wish to see them in the wrong situations.

    Sometimes, saying goodbye, is the best way forward. 💖
