Talking Who says that gray horses are all work?

I thought I'd be an annoying show off and show off how wash and wear Lacey is.

But really, I'm very impressed with how white she stays with so little effort on my part. She gets dirty but she is SO easy to get clean, I don't get it. But, then, probably when I get another gray in a few years, I'll be all spoiled and annoyed about how dirty and hard to clean that horse is. Heehee Nah, I think it'll be ok.

But anyway, Lacey decided to get herself SUPER dirty. All the other horses in her field were pretty clean and there was no mud in sight, but somehow the silly girl found the majikal hidden muddy spot. XD
It was funny when I showed up, the farrier was there for the other horses and my BO was out there trying to catch her horses and Lacey would not leave her alone. She was following the BO around like "you have a halter! I need to go out! I NEED a halter. I NEEEEEEDDDDD to see what that big truck is doing over there." It was pretty funny. My BO was dying of laughter since she was basically being chased around the pasture by a "little" pony. And then of course, I showed up and Lacey was completely enthused that I was catching her.

But anyway, dirty dirty girl! She was like this on both sides.

(Also, note her foot placement. "I may be seriously dirty, but you dare to suggest that I stand on mud? I would never do such a thing. A lady NEVER stands on mud, she just rolls in it.")



Then, about ten minutes later; after just using the curry and the soft brush:



I'm SO spoiled by her.

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Latte is much the same - As long as it's not super wet, she scrubs up pretty good! Though the remnant chestnut hairs in her coat help disguise some of the dirt :]

Sad day, HowClever!!! What a lil' stinker! I'll send you cleanliness vibes. Heehee

MaggiStar- *hugs*

Gidji- That's probably it, now that you mention it... I'm pretty sure she intentionally gets her cheeks and ears dirty, at least, so I have to clean them since whenever I clean them, she gets SO into it.
However, I hardly ever feed her treats because she starts getting really entertainingly pushy for them and that's bad. But it's super cute (and funny) to have her gently pulling on my clothing with her lips (no teeth, she's very careful about that, it really is very cute) so I always laugh and I don't want her to think that that's ok since I'm not getting on her case since it's so cute.

M2G- We will bring you over to the dark side one day.... Heheheheheheh! *rubs hands together in an evil way* Just you wait.

Just kiddin'. Don't worry. Well, maybe just a little.


I think Lacey's little flea bitten spots help a little since they make her somehow a slightly different color than just pure white. :)
