Lacey, the elder dowager...

I felt like you all probably "needed" more Lacey shots.

I got a rainbow umbrella for my birthday a few weeks ago and since Lacey is a little spooky about umbrellas, I thought I better have a little umbrella lesson with her! And of course, no umbrella lesson would be complete without pictures so I took care of that.

Yesterday she was so full of it. I think she went trotting/cantering around her field at least 4 times, like "Hey you guys!! I'm an old lady but I still got game, c'mon now!".

Anyway, without further ado, picture time!

"Look at me run!!"

"Didja' catch that? Pretty totes sure I looked super great..."

"Umbrella?? Oh no you did-n't, girl!""

"K, I said I was ok with it but this is taking things a little too far."

"Srsly??? I WILL get you in your sleep. Your cat is my minion."

"Ok, well, I guess I'm prepared if that rain cloud behind me comes along... But I'm still NOT HAPPY."

And a cute face to finish it off. :)

Lacey puts up with so much.

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

She is very sweet. I feel like she is the mascot for Horse forum.

I really like her face. She has those lovely dark eyes that really stand out against the white.

You're all so sweet! I'm glad you like them. :)
She really is great. She's definitely sweet. Sometimes she's a jerk but she's always reliable, even while being a jerk. haha

We've finally started back in to giving lessons and by her behavior, I'm pretty sure she's missed having little girls dote on her. She's gotten so much happier in the last week or so since we started. It makes me so happy to see her thoroughly happy with her life.

Pintophile, I love her eyes/face too! Her face is so expressive and then her eyes just kind of draw you into them, more so than I've ever really seen on a horse, especially in the winter. When she has a really full winter coat (what I like to call her "albino wooly mammoth" look) her eyes are like little coals against her coat!

Tinyliny, that's so sweet! It's so great and funny to me that one horse could be loved by so many people, most of whom have never met her. It's so beautiful to me. Speaking of which, if you ever happen to be in the Gresham, OR/Portland, OR area, and want to come meet her, I'd love to make it happen! :)

Thanks csimkunas! Those ones are my favorite too. I still have a hard time thinking of her as being 26. Inside my mind she's like 12 or something. haha

Cute pics Wallaby! I'm a smidge partial to your girl, I have a gray Lacey too!

I love that she doesn't act her age. I have a few older reliable jerks myself...that's the best description I've heard for them yet!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
