I just realized yesterday that this spring, Lacey is going to be turning 26.
Geez. I feel like I've had her for so long but it's only been 3 short years.
There are times that I wish I could somehow change time around and make her be 15, or younger, since I feel like there's so much we could do and I feel like we're running out of time. But then I think about it and I realize that if I had gotten her any sooner I wouldn't have been ready for her at all.
And also on the plus side, I feel less guilty about just playing around with her. If she were younger I would feel driven to show or do something that shows off her potential, but as it is, her true physical potential is just unused and it will probably stay that way.
And then I realized that she's had more time to be a horse than I have had to be a human (I'm 20, 21 in September)! And that she was probably in training when I was born so she probably has had more time to understand humans than I have. That's just crazy.
I dunno, she's my baby and I love her to death. I just hope she lives to be 40! That's what I tell her, I've told her that she has to live to be 40 or until I get married and have kids so that my kids can learn to ride on her. I just hope she follows through.
Anyway, random post! Are there any other oldsters out there turning prominent numbers?
