Just Say No

The past two days have been so hectic. Lots of inquiries from sheep and horse shoppers, lots of email to answer, lots of paperwork to do.

And a couple of big decisions to make:

After several days of discussing, pondering, weighing the pros and cons, deciding, re-deciding, and changing our minds, Ken and I have finally decided not to sell either Torchsong or Callisto right now.

I feel bad about disappointing the two buyers who were interested in them, but I just feel like both of those fillies are too good to let slip away. Maybe in the future, we'll reevaluate our situation, but by then we'll have more specific information to base our decisions on, because Callisto will be started under saddle and bred to Senter this year, and Torchsong will probably follow in her footsteps the following year.

Once we see what kind of foals each filly produces with Senter, that will tell us a lot more about how valuable she will be to the farm as a broodmare.

Anyway, I'm just happy that I'll get to keep Callisto long enough to see what she's really like to ride!

Yay! I am so glad you decided you can manage to keep them both. They are so beautiful and one-of-a-kind. -- Kris
