You guys always seem to find a way to cheer me up. =)
I know I probably will have a while left with her but I guess it's just kinda one of those times when I wish that I could look at her and know that, barring unforeseen terrible events, I'll have her around for at least twenty more years. And I guess I am kinda being a spoiled brat being all "omg! ONLY ten more years, maybe! ahh!" Haha
And I guess I could have twenty more years with her....If she lives to be really really old... which is possible, I guess.
I guess the other thing that's kinda getting me down is that the two 30+ horses (one is 38, the other is 34) I've ever hung out with seem so defeated. They don't have that pop in their step or that sparkle in their eye. But I guess Lacey could be different, two doesn't make a rule. I really can't see Lacey ever being totally docile (thank goodness) so maybe there is hope for that.
Thanks for all your kind words. =)
ETA- kmdstar- That's so true! Looking at Lacey, especially in the summer, I think you'd be hard pressed to guess her age at anything over 15. In the winter she looks closer to 20, imo, but still. So true. Excellent post! =D
Fabio - 13 year old Arabian/Lipizzan gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat
Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat
Rest peacefully, Lacey.
