Happy day story featuring glucosamine!

So, last week I FINALLY was able to get Lacey some joint supplement-ness and I ended up getting her those Majesty horse cookies (these: Majesty's Flex Wafers - Treats from SmartPak Equine ) and it hasn't even been fully a week yet and she's showing improvement!!! It's been super cold out so I don't really think this change could be caused by the weather, but maybe it is, I just want to believe she's feeling better already!
This afternoon, when I got home to feed, she came galloping (and, of course, bucking) up from her lower field (over some ice I might add, I was standing there like *crossing fingers and praying for safety*) when she usually just calmly walks, or if she's feeling extra frisky, trots over to me.
And then, I decided to stretch out her back legs to see if she was being more stretchy with them (it had gotten to a point where she would lift her back legs and kinda "unstick" them before she could relax them) and she didn't have to "unstick" either leg very much at all and she was totally fine stretching them all the way out (she hasn't in a while). I'm thrilled!

Also, she LOVES the cookies, so that's good too. She practically mauled me today to get hers. It was cute.


Also, in other, non-horsey, news, I had the second day of the new term at school today (different classes than yesterday) and in my first class we had to do introductions with someone and then write a paragraph about them. Well, the super cute guy next to me (!!!!!!!!!!!!) asked me if I wanted to be his partner and I was, of course, willing (haha) and so we got to know all about each other. He even told me where he works, the exact locale of where he works, and when he works. Heheheh! And then, we both got done writing our paragraphs at a similar time and he offered to take mine up to the teacher for me! And he told me he's always wanted to learn to ride... Heheheheheh.



I'm having a most excellent day!! I just thought you all should know since my family doesn't care. Haha

Aww, thanks cakemom! You're sweet. :)
I'm glad someone cares! :) I know they probably want to care but they just don't get the whole "Yay, Lacey is bucking!" thing since they TOTALLY aren't horse people. Hahaha

We definitely care! And I'm glad Lacey is feeling better. =]

I think I may have to take a trip into Oregon and harass you someday. I'd love to meet Lacey. Wouldn't everyone on the forum be super jealous?! I know, I know, rude to invite yourself over, but the WA/OR border is only a few hours away. =]

You so should! We actually only live like 20 minutes from "the border" so it would only be a few hours, and twenty minutes! But yeah, lemme know if you're coming this way ever, we love (well, at least Lacey loves meeting new people, I'm a really introverted introvert so it's not really my thing, but I LOVE talking about Lacey! And Lacey makes up for my awkwardness. Haha) to meet new people! Especially HFers, that'd be awesome!
And thanks, I'm really glad she's feeling better too!

Tinylily- For sure! Also, in the interests of making this topic as OT as possible, I love your ink drawings! They're amazing!

Haha. Ok, definitely will. It might be nice to save up for an overnight trip, take two days of vacation and go see you and Lacey. Then I can find a bar and take a cute guy to a hotel and then come back up in the morning, haha. Sounds like a plan! I'll start saving! Hahaha.

Please excuse my boldness. I've got some alcohol in me blood. =]

Ok, so I Google-mapped it. It would take me 7 hours. That's kind of close to a few, right? O_O Haha.

Haha riccilove, you crack me up. I wouldn't hold your breath for a cute guy from Oregon, but I suppose it depends on what you like. Sounds like a plan!
And that's ok, it's making this thread funnier. ;)

Yeah well, if I drink enough, he'll seem cute enough. I'll just make a mental note to kick his tush out before I can wake up and remember it.
