    Talking Lacey says hello!

    Today, as usual, I rode Lacey. :)

    She's been acting sore and thankfully I pretty much know why. It's a combination of me misreading the instructions on her joint supplement (the instructions said that the enclosed scoop was 1oz, the correct dose, by weight but since the scoop said 2oz on it, I was only giving her half a scoop, then I realized that weight and volume were two different things. Haha), all the mud making her frogs tender, and her vitamin supplement making her hooves grow like crazy.
    Poor girl!
    I figured out the joint supplement thing, can't do much about the mud situation, and I'm moving up her next hoof appointment a whole 4 weeks! O.o Usually she easily goes for 9 weeks between trims (those "trims" are no nippers involved, because she grows so little hoof, only re-shaping with the rasp) and it's only been 5 since her last trim. Crazy horse!

    She's obviously been feeling more chipper since I figured that out about her joint supplement and hopefully getting her hooves trimmed will be the ticket to her feeling 100% again.

    In other news, I lunged her yesterday as her V-Day present and she pretty much thought that was the best ever. She loves being lunged so much, it just makes her come alive. It's a bummer I didn't bring the camera, there would have been some great pictures. Oh well.

    Anyway, picture time!

    My little old man neighbor, bless him, decided to "help" me feed today and put over 15 pounds of RICH alfalfa out for Lacey and the llamas. Needless to say, they did not get anymore hay today, at all.
    Lacey showing off her giant pile. Basically, LOMN (Little Old Man Neighbor) is her current BFF.

    "No! I refuse to leave my delicious alfalfa! I must eat it ALL and become even more obese!"

    Too bad that whole "not getting caught" plan of hers failed... LOL!

    Remember that scary ditch thing in the middle of the trail? They fixed it! Yay!

    Inside my head I call this "The Water Feature".
    Lacey prefers to go around it. She is severely lacking in the imagination department.

    Walkin' along, like a champ, even while I'm basically hanging off her side to get this picture...

    At the end of our ride. In an effort to increase my own fitness, I've been getting off at the last hill and walking home, leading Lacey. It's working pretty great, but Lacey looooooves to share her opinion about how "slow" I walk. Hahaha!

    "WAT?? I don't want to go IN my field! The grass is so much greener and it's so much more interesting up here!"

    "Must.Drink.Water. Dehydration.Is.Imminent."

    Swallowing demands so much concentration... haha!

    Once I untacked her she was nickering like crazy at me so I let her go thinking that she wanted to roll (I have a new "rolling after a ride" philosophy: when she's gone, am I going to gain more comfort from knowing that she was always clean or from the happy look in her eyes after she got to roll sans blanket? The happy look wins so I'm letting her roll).
    Well, she immediately turned from her rolling spot (without rolling) and trotted over to her pile of hay. Horses. Hahahaha!

    Mid shake:

    I got her food prepared (her supplements n' stuff, no hay!) and came back.

    She looked clean, until I saw the other side. What a little mud fiend! Good thing I love her anyway!

    The llamas were both VERY displeased that I didn't feed them anything more. They thought it was just wrong of me to "force" them to eat off the GROUND!! Who does that? Seriously. The nerve.

    Then, I was followed home by these two dogs. The sitting one is so fat that she literally waddles. She reminded me of a male sea lion.
    I went into my house and 45 minutes later they were still laying outside my front door, I guess hoping I'd feed/play with them? It was sad.

    The end! :)

    Lacey! Where did you get that browband? It.Is.AWESOME! So shiney....

    Side note: Ever going to name the Llamas?

    I never get tired of seeing her! I love her outgrowing mohawk :) the llamas are also adorable! I hate them though... Lol

    Thanks Lexiie! She is at least part Arab. :) There's some debate as to whether she's full or not since she's not registered and I have no idea who/what her mom was (her dad was a purebred Arab) but yeah, she's definitely at least part Arab. :)

    Thanks Grayshell! I actually made her that browband! I took a browband length section of nylon strap then sewed a strip of tiedye cloth on to it. I love it quite a bit. That's actually her "lesson bridle" and that browband matches her entire lesson setup perfectly. It's great.
    The llamas do have names: Marina (the brown one) and Deidre (the white+brown one). I just hate their names so I never use them. Lol!

    Thanks amp! :) Her mane is at my favorite growing out stage too! I know what you mean about the llamas, you either love them or hate them. I used to be terrified of them but then I kinda got over it. Haha!

    Bummer megm5441! I'm not sure why that would be happening...that's never happened before! Sad day. I host pictures using Picasa...maybe that has something to do with it? Like Picasa is blocked on your computer, or something?

    I think they are adorable but I used to get chased/ stared down by one all the time at an old barn... I'm sure if I found a nice one I'd like them lol. But I also don't like those names... They aren't animal names!

    Oh, now I remember. I don't care for those names either. Lol.
    Neat! Lacey should be a fairy horse for Halloween (or whenever, actually)!
