Talking Your dose of Lacey...!

I've been slacking in my picture taking "duties". I've been crazy busy, hopefully no one hates me now. lol!

In the next couple of weeks I should be getting a foster hose to be Lacey's buddy for the summer. I'm hopefully going to meet the new mare (Lady) tomorrow evening but nothings for sure yet. She's a neglect case so right now she's pretty skinny, they're trying to get her at least a little better before bringing her to me!
Anyway, she's ten and a bay Arab with lots of white (next to gray Arabs, MY FAVORITE! and bay is Lacey's favorite horse color so it should be good!). I'm excited. She's also broke to ride, once she gets de-skinny-ified, and the rescue told me that if I felt comfortable doing training, I could 100% do whatever I wanted (within reason). Yay! I'm pretty excited. She could be a really good fit. We will see.


Lacey's enjoying her life, basically being a spoiled child. She's doing wonderfully. It's very funny that now that I think of her as being mostly sightless, I can actually see her seeing impaired-ness. Just in the way she acts and moves about her pastures, it's pretty evident that her eyes aren't functioning 100%. Funny how when you don't want to see something, you just don't!
In any case, we're adjusting and while it's still kind of a work in progress, we're not nearly as traumatized as we were a few months ago.
Also, she's less fat!! YAY! When she's working and she's on the long part of her stride, I can generally see a few ribs! Can't see them any other time and I can't really feel them unless I press really hard, but it's good to know she still has ribs. LOL!


Anyway, PICTURES!

She loves to run in this field so (it's shut unless we're both in there) I've been taking her in there to get loose action shots. haha
This was the other night. Silly horse, cantering down a hill!



The other day when I showed up she was laying down and napping. Adorable!



I let her in the lower field because I was messing around with the gate...
"NOMZ"



(I'm pretty proud of myself with this, btw)
Here's the gate I put up at the end of the area she was sleeping in above, right before it opens up into the bigger pasture.



Then, no more scary giant gap between the gate and the ground in this pasture! Yay! There's more fencing I can string across and tie to the t-post to block off that pasture.

Lacey apparently admires my handiwork. haha



Pretty girl



Just a cool picture of her pasture...



In the running field again...she declined running. What a jerk. haha

"LOL"



Walking with intent...



"I request release from this prison!!"



Then, she came over and kept pressing her nostril against my hair...it was pretty adorable. SHE'S pretty adorable.
She really wanted to be let out. She knew I had her halter and lead rope, silly horse!







I let her out finally, she was very pleased, and then we saw one of her many deer friends. She wanted to go hang out with him/her, I lunged her instead. Hah!



Then, later, after I fed her and turned her back out. I put her grazing muzzle on and she was exceedingly frustrated. After she realized that I wasn't going to take it off, she VERY carefully ignored me and decided that the man mowing his lawn, who mows it every other day, was 100% fascinating. hahaha




The end.

Thanks for looking! :)

Rest peacefully, Lacey.
