    Talking You know what you've been missing? A dose of Lacey!

    Lacey and I are back from camp! My photobucket is still on the fritz but I felt like you all needed some pictures so I sucked it up.

    These are a few pictures from the summer and a few from the last few days.

    Lacey and me taking my photographer friend's brothers on a ride with 2 of my assistant wranglers. I think I'm adjusting my stirrups here, or something... I'm not really sure.
    The younger boy (9 year old) is still telling people about this ride and describes me, every time, as "the weird girl who was wearing a unicorn shirt, who was really nice and cool". Kids. Haha




    We had theme days at the corral and this was taken on twin day. Obviously, Lacey and I were twins.
    Also, there's my brown saddle pad that's not brown anymore!




    Unicorn day!




    And now, the more recent pictures:

    Lacey chilling in her field the other day...



    Cute face... Her forelock is getting so long!



    I got her a new saddle last week and that saddle pad that was brown? Well, now it's turquoise with a Rainbow Fish iron on. Heehee!



    Today we went on a really long ride, for us (it was only about 3 miles). Lacey thought it'd be a good idea to flat walk the entire time since I wasn't letting her trot and she was not going to walk-walk. Silly girl! I might get her set in her gait yet! Haha
    We had to ride through a cemetery coming back and all the headstones, that are set in the ground, are jumps, apparently. Haha I was trying to get her around them since it seems kinda bad to ride over graves but Lacey wanted to jump and there was no convincing her otherwise.



    She got hosed off, which she loved.


    And some random pictures I took with the camp photographer's camera:


    Copper- she was a Sorrel Varnish Roan Appy mare that was basically that crazy old lady who lives next door. She was SO perfect to ride but crazy on the ground. She thought nothing of literally climbing on top of campers to scratch her face on them. It was terrifying. So campers didn't really get to have on the ground time with her. Aside from her being dangerous, I liked her quite a bit.





    Ghost! He's a flea-bitten gray Paint gelding. He had such a sense of humor. I really enjoyed him.




    And my camp lanyard because it's possibly the best thing ever. When the camp photographer was making them at the beginning of the summer we were joking around and he told me that he wished he could write a weird job title on someone's so I told him he could do it to mine as long as it had something to do with unicorns. And he actually did it!




    Thanks for looking!

    So much fun! I love your horse-- she's just adorable. And how did you get the turquoise part to stay on the saddle pad? Super cool!

    She's so cute, and camp looks like a blast.

    I'm so glad you all feel better now!
    And thanks for the compliments. Lacey's the best. :)

    Camp was super fun. I'm really glad it's over now though. There were a lot of things that were super fantastic but most of the horse related stuff just stunk (mainly due to camp leadership and their lack of knowledge relating to horses and their lack of willingness to accept that I am actually good at what I do! Haha). But it was a good summer. We had some really fun times and those are the times we'll remember, not the bad stuff.

    I hand-sewed it on. :) It took foooorrrreeeevvvveeerrrr though. Like 2 hours, each side.
    I cut out cloth in the correct shapes (each side is a separate piece of cloth), hemmed the edges, sewed it on all the way up to the top section of both sides, then sewed velcro along the top edge (hidden under the saddle) so that I could still use shims (the pad has pockets for shims so I can adjust how a saddle fits if I want) with it still, and then I was done!
    It was a lot of work but it looks relatively pro and I love the color so I probably won't have any reason to change it anytime soon.

    Horseforum would NOT be the same with out Lacey.

    I've been missing your threads. So glad that everything went well. You and Lace make such a great team.

    I tried a aussie saddle out just like yours today! Well..it was too small on my horse..waaaay too small but it was comfy. You can't really post as well do to those mickey mouse ear things..kinda pushes me back in the seat.
