CaLaPorte and Arrowsaway, you two are just too sweet!
I do my best. I've been crazy blessed to be able to find, at such a comparatively young age, something my heart loves to do THIS much. I really think they do me as much good (or more!) as I try to do them. :)
I know what you mean, WTFCas! I'm kinda bummed that since I'm trying to get her OUT of my personal bubble (she was an orphan so has no concept of personal space), I can't do nearly as much nose kissing as I want to do! Haha She's going to be so WOW when she's at 100%, oh geez. All my lesson kids are going to want to steal her!
Hah, I know Tiny! I'm scared. I'm planning to work with them each separately on a daily basis at least somewhat to hopefully combat that. I guess kinda on the plus side, I assume due to Lady's orphan-ness, Lady is beginning to be MUCH more attached to me than she is to Lacey. I get whinnied at and such (probably something that will need to be dealt with...) when I leave but I can take Lacey away and the only "freaking out" (neighing, etc) party is Lacey. Lacey knows that's 100% unacceptable so I can correct her pretty well when I'm working with her but when I'm not working with her, well, she'll learn.
Hopefully that lil dynamic will help somewhat in preventing any major issues but we will see for sure. My fingers are crossed! I'm somewhat nervous for when I first try to take Lacey on a trail ride without Lady but that's a bridge I guess we'll cross when we get to it.
I agree, Prinella! I feel like their pasture is the pretty popular girls table in high school, or something. And when they're having a little spat over who gets to be closest to me, I feel like the popular-ist kid of all.
