Lacey was feeling SO good today. I wanted to take some pictures so I lunged her a smidge first to warm her up then I took her to the arena to let her run. I have never ever seen flag her tail (even though she's an Arab and that's what Arabs "do") and I have a hard time keeping her cantering most of the time, but not today!
She was racing around with her tail flagged, doing that "turn a corner then gallop really fast" thing that young horses do all the time and BUCKING. She was just going for it. Haha I was super glad I had my camera in my pocket because otherwise I might have missed out on documenting this entirely. I didn't get any bucking pictures becuase I was kinda in shock at her behavior. I'm just super happy that I got to see her so enthusiastic. The only bummer is that I have her tail braided so the pictures aren't as cool as they would have been if her tail was loose, but oh well.
It was pretty hilarious too because there was a little girl and her dad who were watching us from the other side of the fence and I'm pretty sure the dad thought Lacey was a crazy beast. Lol! The little girl fed Lacey an apple which she adored.
And now, the pictures (excuse the marginal blurriness, she was moving really fast!)!
Wow! She actually looks like an Arabian...pretty much the first and only time! Haha
Llama or horse?
"Hi there buddy!"
