Lacey is a CRAAAAZY old lady! (plus a video)

She's so funny. It was a really nice day today so we went on a ride. First off, she was kind of a jerk while we were riding. A responsive jerk, but a jerk nonetheless.
So, since she had enough energy to be a jerk, I figured that I'd get her to run a lot in hopes of getting her tired, right? Oh yes, that worked greeeeaaat.
We did a few sets of cantering/trotting for 5 minutes straight and by the end of each, she was breathing super hard (but was breathing normally within 2 minutes) and when we got back she was sweaty enough that it was foamy and she needed to be hosed off. So I hosed her off and took her back to her field. Once I let her go, she immediately went cantering and bucking off to the middle of the field, where she immediately rolled about a bazillion times and jumped up and went bucking off to the other side. At about that point, I realized that my plan to tire her basically failed.
So then I fed her and went out to get her and she saw me and came cantering over from her side of the field. Srsly. Whoever is feeding her crack needs to stop! Hahaha

The other thing that's cool about all this cantering she's doing is that she's doing it all on her own. I had never seen her canter willingly before last spring when I was free lunging her and I had never seen her canter in the field EVER. She would just trot really fast to keep up with her buddies. Basically, she was SO ridiculously out of shape and fat (on the Henneke scale she was at least a 8 or 9 and she had been out of work for 7-10 years) when I got her that I think her body has really had a hard time recovering. So it's SO cool to see her basically blossoming into this really fit, comfortable in her own skin, lil creature. :)

Anyway, pictures!

Shedding. She grows a ridiculous amount of hair and its all soooooo white. My lesson kids like to pretend that it's snow. Haha



"Maybe if I close my eyes and pretend that you're not standing there preparing to hose me off, you'll disappear..."



"Perhaps if I command you? Get away from me with that hose, woman!"



"Maybe if I just look cute and helpless..." (look how sweaty she is! It's ridiculous.)



"I did not enjoy that." Clean!



My neighbor's "puppy"(he's really about 8). He LOVES going with Lacey and I. He thinks it's so much fun to run along with us.



Rolling...



And the required upside down poneh picture...



"Hi there! I'm brown now, thought you oughtta know."



Arabian pretending to be a musclebound, HYPP positive, Quarter Horse pose (she is so not normal...hahaha):



Trot to our friends!



And a buck for good measure!




The video! (and forgive the 5 seconds before the very end, my camera was being ornery) I think it's cute how while she's running she has her head and ears pricked a little towards me like "Hey! You going to play with me?"



Thanks for looking! :)

Yay! Haha yeah, she's loooooves getting dirty, especially when she's wet.
Well, we have a lesson tomorrow, what would that lesson kid be good for if I didn't make her help clean Lacey off? I'm basically the worst teacher ever. LOL!!!

Looks like she had a wonderful time!

I have a gray Lacey too...she doesn't miss a mud puddle. Right now she is very pregnant and can't get over so she is gray on top & dark brown on the bottom, despite my valiant grooming efforts *sigh*

Hehehehehe, yeah, that whole "let's tire an Arab out" plan always fails miserably. Zierra's dam came to me pretty psychotic and being a dumb 14 year old kid, I got fed up with her fighting me tooth and nail for EVERY single ride trying to gallop. I had ridden her to town 10 miles away, a good chunk of it cantering and headlong gallop - on the way home I was tired and fed up so I went "fine, run til you stop then!" She galloped the ENTIRE 10 miles home without stopping (though she WAS doing an easy canter when we finally arrived). I was so scared, I rubbed her from head to toe in liniment and the next morning, I could barely get out of bed and SHE was galloping around and bucking like she hadn't been ridden in a year! :roll: Let me tell you, buying a Paint has been a bit of a delight in that I can tire her out in a couple miles! LOL

Lacey is so gorgeous, thanks for sharing!

You know..I had the same sweaty horse who didn't want to be hosed off today. Except mine was a buckskin and eventually did tire out to the point where she wouldn't lope anymore (quite a bit later..) Spring is just awesome..

Silly Lacey. She's so cute. While looking at the pictures I realized she's the only gray arabian that I know of without a "cold" name. The other two are Chilly and Icee. Hmmm.

I like that hillside pasture where she lives. I would love to live there if I were a horse. Nice to see a horse living in a natural way.

Oh, she did! Hahaha
Sad day! They'll get dirty however they can! I'm just glad that it was dry enough that my Lacey didn't need her blanket so the mud can just dry out and I (and lesson kid, haha) can brush it out pretty easily tomorrow. I will think your Lacey clean thoughts. :)

Hahaha yeah, Lacey doesn't particularly believe in being sore, or excessively tired either. It's funny, during the winter when there's very minimal grass I can get her tired but once the grass comes in there is no hope. I think maybe grass is like horsey RedBull. Hahaha

Thanks! :)

Haha that's funny! Maybe Abby and Lacey want to be soul twins? And maybe Lacey was just sapping Abby's energy! That could explain it. Bahahahaha

Interesting! Lacey's the only Arab I know! I know an Arab/Paint mare (who lives in the field next to Lacey) but she's a chestnut....overo? Actually, I don't think I've ever met another gray Arab...I've only met like 4 Arabs in my life though... haha It's QH/Paint country around here.

I do too! It's amazing what the hills have done for her. Her balance is SO much better than it used to be and her topline is amazing. I never really believed what people said about uneven terrain and hills before she moved in there and now I'm a total believer! Haha
It's actually kind of funny, that pasture right there is where I met the first horse I had ever seen when I was about 3 or 4. So it's kind of a full circle kinda thing, that my horse is where I started being horsey...
I would want to live there too if I were a horse.
And thanks! It a blessing of a place all the way around.
