My main goal with Lacey is to just get her to a "steady eddy" sorta state. Basically, all she needs right now is tons of miles. Of course, there are plenty of other things that I'd like to tweak about her but the main thing is just to get her steady and not all crazy all the time. Eventually, I'd love for her to be the horse that I can trust to take care of anyone I throw up on her. She's an Arab and she's in great shape right now, so I can see her living for ten more years, at least, and if that happens, I'd love for her to be the horse my kids (if and when that ever happens) first learn to ride on. I know she can do it, she just needs miles. She's come SO far in the last two years that I don't really have any doubts that she could be the steadiest, most trustworthy horse, basically ever.
To that end, I've been teaching her everything that she does with a voice command, as well as a physical command, so that I can control her from where ever I am in relation to her.
Fabio - 13 year old Arabian/Lipizzan gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat
Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat
Rest peacefully, Lacey.
