The Lacey poneh! :D

She's been having a grand old time at my neighbor's house! She seems to have settled in really well and is basically completely over her initial herdbound-ness with the horses "next door."

Over the last 3 weeks or so we've ridden more than 10 miles of trails, which is pretty cool! I got an app for my phone that lets me track how far we go, what our average speed is, and where we went on a map.
We've been having a lot of fun!

These pictures are from the last week or so:

Lacey's so cool that she actually ponies dogs. For reals, the dog (my next-door neighbor's free-ranging dog) is rather dog aggressive and since I was riding a horse and he wouldn't stay at home, and since he would try to attack any dogs we saw, we improvised. He wasn't sure about being that close to Lacey at first, but then he was totally fine. We even did a little trotting with him right there and he just ran along side like it was something he does everyday! haha

Group picture!

Sitting poneh! O.o Actually, she was getting up from rolling and I caught it just right. Heehee!

Cute poneh face! Awww!
That girl has the face of manipulation!


I accidentally took her on a 5 mile trail. Poor girl! She was very sedate the next day! haha And this is the first summer/fall that I have EVER seen her sweat! I really think that the years she spent being obese (with her previous owner) messed up her sweat glands, or something. I don't even know.

I think she could be a wrestler or something, I mean, c'mon now, she's like crazy buff. Haha!

Mah poneh and me

"Lacey, do you want an apple?"

"Yes! But I need to be polite and pee first since I would NEVER pee while you're doing something to me. That'd be just rude, crude, and socially unacceptable!" (that's really what she thinks, she has never performed a bodily function while I'm working her, except for the very occasional poop, excluding farting. Hahaha!)

"Apple time!!!!"


"I'm very sexy, aren't I, dahhhhling?" (take note of the grass-arette)

Thanks for looking!

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Thanks ladies!

MN- Dog ponying was fun! Heehee Just be careful, cuz there were a few times where Lacey had to turn around or something and the dog got all confused and freaked out a little. Thankfully, Lacey's so chill that she just got a little excited but it could have been bad with a less chill equine.

Chevy- Yeah! Lacey lives at my neighbor's house with 2 llamas now.

Also: super cool story!
So, yesterday the Fugly blog had a "ID your mystery horse" day and I decided to put Lacey in it for kicks and giggles. Well, this girl from CA came along and thinks she recognized Lacey and is pretty sure Lacey is her Arab/Welsh mare that she had as a kid in the 90's!!!!!!!!!!! Tons of weird facts are lining up, like how Lacey is basically a dead head on the trail, how she is great being ridden bareback (this girl rode her mare around bareback and bridless on a regular basis), and this girl rode her mare almost exclusively bitless because the mare was very tense in a bit, LIKE LACEY!!! If Lacey is half Welsh, that explains why Lacey grows such a giant winter coat, hello pony coat! She said that she did trails and tons of gymkhana with her mare which would help explain why Lacey is so chill about new things, if she was a show pony in a former life.
I'm REALLY excited! Hopefully this is it.

Lacey is a beautiful girl! She doesn't even look 25 (I was reading your siggy).
It must be exciting to have a possible lead on where your girl previously came from.
