Lacey! Plus, another short video of her silliness!

Miss Lacey has been doing so great!
I'm SOOO thankful I have her on Mare Magic, I think it's really been helping her be less terrifyingly hormonal. Usually I dread working with her during the spring becuase she's basically a ball of nerves and pent up energy and so far she's really been pretty manageable! I think it's also been helping that she has a large field to herself and spends a lot of time walking/running around so her brain is working harder than it has in the past where she'd just stand around all day waiting to be fed.

We went on a trail ride today but I didn't get any pictures of that since she was being a little silly and wanting to run/trot/turn towards home, so basically I had to stay focused the entire time. It was a bummer because the trail was gorgeous! next time she'll hopefully be behaving better. I plan to go again on Friday, and I think we're gonna go on a different trail so hopefully she'll suck it up.

It was a nice trail ride. We came upon three guys walking, wearing camo, carrying shovels, and jugs of water, and that was a little intimidating... But I kinda knew one of them (he was in my math class last term, weirdly enough) and even though I knew that he's a jerk-face, I also knew that he's more of a respectful jerk-face, if there's such a thing. haha He tried to smile at me when he saw me. Boys. So basically we passed these guys twice and the second time, they moved over so we could pass and I told Lacey to canter right as we passed them, She was happy to oblige...we were kinda being show-offs...Also, I didn't want to be just walking with three guys, plus shovels right behind us. haha

When we got back, I hosed Lacey off which she actually seemed to enjoy, or at least, she turned towards me when I had the hose where she had been turned away. I will force her to like water after all! haha

And, yesterday, I got Miss Lacey a new saddle pad! It's classy. I'm not a huge fan of the color (brown) but it's not terrible. It was a great price and it's really quality so I think I'm just going to suck it up (or make a cover for it...).

Anyway, pictures!

"Oh look! A white horse lives here! Fancy that!"



"Oh hai there!"



"I haz a fly in my eye, can you give me my flymask later?" (also, look at all that flying hair! NOT OK!!)



Skeptical horse is skeptical.



Lacey and her new pad! I think it makes her look very old school, with her old school saddle... she looks unusually calm here...Trust me, it was an act!



And then the video (don't worry, she can and does roll over fully, just it's a little hard to roll over uphill):


And the rest of the pictures:

"Do I look enough like a heavily foundation bred Quarter Horse yet?"



"And here, this is my emaciated 'call animal control asap' face. Can I have more food?"



"I'm so cool, I have a fly mask. I love my fly mask, it makes me look fly."
(she really does love her fly mask, she'll stick her head into for you and everything, however, she regularly scratches her face and it comes off during these scratching sessions and makes her all sad)



No mane! I shaved it off.



And put some of it out for the birdies to use in nests.



Llamas!!



"Omnomnomnom" or more adolescent QH poses. she looks so awkward in the springtime... I don't understand it. Maybe it's becuase her neck isn't fluffy with hair anymore but her body is so her body overpowers her head/neck and makes her look ridiculous... haha




Thanks for looking!

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Man, that is one dirty horse!! I'll never understand why people buy light colored horses! It's enough work with the ones that are the same color as dirt. Love the rolling video. She couldn't get all the way over so opted to go down again to do the other side. How nice of her!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

It is ridiculous how dirty she manages to get herself! Thankfully, she has some sort of a dirt shedding shield or something since she can get that dirty, but with a quick curry/brush she's magically snowy white again! Unless it's wet mud, then I just have to wait until it dries... But when it's wet, she's blanketed so none of that for her! bahahaha! She is so helpful! Making sure to spread out the work load.
And actually, she's the first gray horse I've been around so when I got her, I had no idea about the whole dirt factor. Silly me.
