After agonizing over the decision for the last month; I have decided to offer Lanie up for sale to the right person. Without going into every useless detail, I think it is the right thing to do. Kick, or no kick.
She stands around with not much to do and while that's OK for the retired folk (Spencer and April) it's not really fair to her. School, Work, Farm, Family - things have to give here and there, and I'd rather experience the heartbreak of seeing her go with a new human than experience the heartbreak of her sitting idle.
Someone came to look at her last week, and while I was torn emotionally about the prospect of selling her - I noticed one really important aspect. She has come a long way in 2 years. She is more responsive, flexible, respectful and easy to handle. She doesn't push, pull and bulldoze her way through you. Eager to please, she's in the prime of her life - and she needs a 'job'.
This lovin' horses isn't always easy, folks.
