So - had somehow built up to five ponies (never rent a field, too tempting to fill it!). Now have ten week old DS. I can get to ride 4x a week and that's fine for my main two. Dealing with the sharers I have for the others is driving me nuts though. One is DH's horse so got to keep her, one could go back to its owner and I could sell the last one. That would leave three, which is manageable I feel. Thing is, there will be a couple of very upset girls if I do this, the field will still cost the same too yet I won't have their contributions. Was wondering if I could advertise for youngstock livery to fill a couple of spaces and help towards field rent.

So, should I do it? Is it too soon to make a decision yet?

Would the girls fully loan them? Whats more crippling the money or the work? Must say I'm glad I've only got one with a new baby!! The two I had would be difficult!
