I’m not pregnant but I think what you’re feeling is totally normal. Unfortunately, guys don’t always understand pregnancy and the “toll” it takes on a woman. Not only do your priorities have to change in an instant (as your husband’s do too), but you are physically limited. I can’t imagine how hard to must be to not be able to do something you love. I love our dog like a child too. If I had to send her away even for her benefit I’m sure it would break my heart.

I hope when he gets back from his trip he can console you!

I’ve also heard that horses are incredibly intuitive, so I’m sure she knows you still love her. Just think how beautiful it will be when you get to introduce your little boy to her 🙂

@JustMe12182:  At the risk of sounding like an idiot, can you just ride her? I understand completely wanting to do what us best for your baby, but a skilled rider on a horse you know seems ok? I’m not a horse person so I really don’t know. I’m 18 weeks pregnant and I’m a ski coach- skiing pregnant isn’t recommended, but there was no way I was going to quit my job and sit on my butt at home bored and depressed. Just my two cents. I really do feel for you and it all works out ok for both you and your horse!

I’m so sorry you’re going through this. It sounds like you are doing the very best you can for your horse, and animals are more resilient than you think.

@JustMe12182:  When are you due?  I’m guessing you are too far along now to risk riding.  Are you able to visit your horse?  Any way to make the horse go very slow and easy?  Probably not the best idea but I feel for you both because your horse doesn’t understand what’s going on.

I hope you are able to re-establish your relationship after the baby arrives.

I’m so sorry! Lifetime horseperson here, I feel you. You’re more upset about it than she is, I promise. I’m glad you found someone to lease her, that will keep her in shape for you and also give her a job so her cribbing may let up a bit…

You’re right it is unfair…you have to give up a LOT compared to your husband. But you also have the honor of giving birth, which he can’t. 🙂 Everything will be just fine. Especially once LO gets here, you’ll miss your mare of course but you’ll be so in love with your son it won’t bother you as much.
