Her two new blankets came today! I'm pretty pleased with them both. They're both a little big in a neck hole area and a smidge snug over the point of her shoulder but that's to be expected since she has the weirdest neck/shoulder thing ever. Silly girl!
She also has scratches on all four of her feet. :( However, she seems to be on the mend now that I got her some antibacterial shampoo and now that I shaved all her legs. I was very proud of her, she was super well behaved about getting her legs clipped. I mean, she's basically going crazy mentally since I haven't really exercised her since Monday and she needs daily exercise to stay sane, but she didn't kill me when I came after her with the clippers! And, she stood veeeery still so I could clip. I was impressed.
In clipping her legs, I discovered that her back left one has a bunch of scars all over the fetlock joint and the pastern. O.o I know she had them when I got her (one is big enough to be relatively noticeable) but it's weird. They're on the inside of the joint/pastern but most of them look like scrapes, like somehow she dragged that area over something... One is probably a cut since it's a short, wide, line but the others look like scrapes... I wonder what she got herself into! Once the scratches go away I think I'm going to photograph it.
Anyway, these are her blankets. The green one is a lightweight and the red one is medium weight. The one thing I don't like about them is that they both don't have velcro in the front to help you get it buckled, but other than that, they're pretty quality for spending only $60 each! They're Weatherbeetas. :)
"Mah home is that way. I would very much like you to take me over there..."
"...What?? You refuse?"
Note her gorgeous tail:
"What?? This blanket makes me look like a BOY!"
"Thas right, I went there."
"Maybe if I kind of arch my neck, I'll look my girly...?"
Lacey may appear to be tied to the ladder on the RV, but she is not for reals. Her leadrope is just wrapped around the ladder in such a way that it would immediately unwrap if necessary. Also, in the three years I've owned/worked with Lacey, she has never once pulled back, even when she's really freaked out. I know that that does not mean it will never happen but I feel pretty secure in thinking that it would take a literal act of God to get her to pull back.
Yay for being super ghetto! Haha
