I can be a pretty morbid person. It’s not that I think I’m necessarily going to die tomorrow, but let’s be honest – I could die tomorrow. We all could. For me specifically, I’m most likely to get smushed by a Land Rover outside my office… which is located in a luxury shopping center.
If this blog goes quiet, it’s because someone smushed me walking to my car. Lauren died at the hands of people pursuing David Yurman and Louis Vuitton.
Anyway, in this morbid line of thought I sometimes think that I should formally get something written down about what should happen to Simon. My husband loves me, and he even loves Simon… but I’m not so naive that I expect him to keep up with the four legged burden forever and ever. Horses are my passion, not his.
So that leaves the question, what do I do with Simon? If I leave it up to chance, chances are nothing bad would happen to him… but we all know that story. Horse gets sold to nice person who sells it to okay person who sells it to whatever person who sells it to slaughter house. Truth is, you never know 100% what will happen with your horse if you sell it and that’s when you’re still around to keep tabs on said animal. In my morbid scenario, I’m smushed by an SUV and can’t keep an eye out for the right perspective buyer.
Do you leave him with the trainer for life as a school horse? Do you ship him to a friend across the country and surprise her with the burden that is lovely but not 100% sound at all times horse? Do you build him a trust fund? Do you turn him out into the wilderness and say good luck pony!?!?
Clearly, there are a lot of options and at this moment I don’t have any answers.
So I’m curious readers – do you have a postmortem plan for your horse?
