Things rarely turn out the way we plan. Sometimes they turn out better, sometimes worse, but almost always different.
After months of stress, frustration and heartache, the time has come to let you go. I know your new family will love you as much as we did because this has been a long process for everyone involved, and yet they never walked away, never gave up, never backed out. They, too, must see your potential, as we did five short years ago.
But life happens, and we made a decision that took us away from you, away from our budding farm, and we had no choice but to sell you. In today’s market, that is easier said than done.
We didn’t intend for things to turn out this way, but I think you know that. I think you know how much we loved and appreciated you. But as much as we enjoyed you, we were still restless. There was still a piece of our puzzle missing, and it is hard to settle down completely when you are seeking… something.
Now we find ourselves each going a new direction. You have a new family to take care of. New kids to protect, new memories to make. We have a new path to follow as well. And while things didn’t exactly turn out the way we had planned, they did, in fact, turn out. Thank you for showing us how just how precious a lifestyle hobby farming is. We will return to it, just not quite yet. We have a few things to do first. But someday…
In a few short hours, we will sign the papers to sell you, and in a few days you will officially belong to someone else. This will be good for both of us. You don’t deserve to be vacant, abandoned. You are meant to be filled with love and laughter, and soon you will have that again. And for us, we will be able to exhale, knowing that you are in good hands, knowing that the process has come to an end, knowing that life will once again return to your walls.
We will look back on you with great fondness in the years to come, but for now, Thank you. For all the memories. For everything. For always.
