    Completely feel the same!
    I've got 1 who will never leave me and the other has had a few things wrong and is still not quite right, when she is I can feel an advert being written.
    I feel like a I need a horsey break and to reassess things.

    Where were all these people offering good horses for good homes when I was looking? obviously for the right amount of money. I had to buy from a dealer. Don't get me wrong I am glad I got my mare though!

    I think if I were you I would think to myself I've got a couple of months to put into these horses to get them ready to advertise in April / May and having that goal will help you get it done and possibly rekindle your enjoyment.

    Sounds like you would be happier with only one on a different yard and some transport.
    In happy with my yard, I think it's more to do with the fact that I'm working away from home, and when I get home at the weekend I want to be at home, not out all the time. I also suspect that due to the fact that I'm forking out a lot of money on livery it's playing on my mind as well that I may as well be flushing it down the loo ATM!

    Whingeing is good OP, putting your troubles ' on paper ' helps you to see the situation more clearly. All the suggestions given so far have been helpful.. I hope you can begin to think about what is best for you and your horses now.
    Best Wishes.

    I know exactly where you are coming from. I keep penning a whinge forum post to look for advice but never have the guts to post!!

    I've got 5 I love very much but life has changed, such as starting a new job (a proper career type job), getting older and wanting a mortgage and I miss doing the fun stuff ie. Riding, not poo picking and being a general DIYer to their daily antics.

    Id love to get back to either 2 or 3 but unfortunately of the 5, 2 no one would want (complicated characters and certain medical issues). I would like to part with one of the 2 unsellables if I could and I've got 1 of the more easily sellable 3 (even he isn't straight forward!) I may tentively try to loan once Ive got him back into work after the winter as he would suit being on a much a bigger livery yard than on my small personal yard. But after some bad experiences loaning I'd almost rather see him sat in a field! On top of this my turnout/stable/arena arrangement is very complicated and would make for a very long reply (one I feel you may not want to read) which makes life even more exhausting and general chores more time consuming.

    Everyday I wish I could stick them all in a blender and pull out all the good bits of each one and just have one super horse I could love and spoil to death.

    So I apologise for not providing any advice, but I am in support your winge and understand your predicament which I guess it always slightly helpful . First world problem or not, a problem is still a problem and even though we all realise how trivial they maybe compared to someone elses I still feel we are allowed to have moan without having to feel totally selfish!
