Hahaha! Leah, you are the best!! I will be sure to let you know. She still has about a month to have hair (lol) but in a few weeks I'll be asking!
Awww, thanks Caroline! I love that title!! That would be the greatest book ever.
I have had more people in my life tell me that I should write a book! They were telling me that in high school, that's something most people who meet me organically assume I would be great at (even without seeing any drawings/writing/etc!), and now you guys. APPARENTLY I'm the only one who's still not 100% on board with that idea! Haha!
I guess I should just suck it up and get on that.
Because I do have a long history of photos and she is what I would write about, if I were to write anything! And it would be "easy" to write about her..dang. No more excuses.
A few thoughts from today:
1. Hazel is IN LOVE with my seven year old Sunday Lesson Kid. She adores that kid. And that kid adores her! It is probably the cutest thing. Today, for SLK's lesson, we played "The Leading Game" which is like a combination of Tag and Simon Says, plus animals. She got to lead Hazel and oh my goodness. I thought I would die of cuteness. SLK was just leading Hazel everywhere (and SLK is a TINY kid - maybe 60lbs - Hazel is at least 80-90lbs), then she'd start running, and Hazel would just gallop alongside her. Haze never tried to take her wherever Hazel wanted to go, she just followed this tiny kid along wherever said kid went.
I LOVE THAT GOAT. Best $0 evvvvvvver.
2. Rant warning: One of my neighbor's was taking their Boston Terrier on a walk, let her run free (she has a historically TERRIBLE recall, btw - one of those "come means PLAY!!!" dogs), and she scooted through the front gate and came tearing through the pasture.
The stupid dog almost got kicked in the head by Lacey (thankfully, that dear mare "warning kicks" first ALWAYS, then actually kicks if whatever it is doesn't back off - she is a miracle, she knows she's blind and she behaves accordingly...I adore her). Luckily it backed off after Lacey raised her back leg, shifted her rear, and grunted. But that dog would have been toast if it weren't for Lacey's good heart.
Not to mention that Hazel almost mauled the dog while protecting "her" girl (this was in the middle of our game). She didn't but that was only because I came over and got the dog to leave the two of them alone
Anyway, I went to talk to the owners about this issue and impress upon them that their dog was lucky to be alive AND THEY TOLD ME THAT IF LACEY KICKED THE DOG, THAT WAS FINE. Um, no. Your dog is 20lbs, at most. It would DIE if my horse kicked it. I don't care if you hate your dog enough to not care if it dies, I DO care about your dog enough to hope that it stays alive and I'm telling you to get your dumb creature out of my horse's pasture and keep it on a leash until you can figure out how to train it properly.
I was polite to them and just said that the dog was lucky to be alive and that going into pastures like that was really really dangerous for it. They laughed it off until I pointed out that a kick from a horse Lacey's size, to a dog that small, would not end in some bruises. It would end in a serious injury or even death. I guess they hadn't thought of that because they sobered right up and apologized profusely. Hopefully that'll do the trick... I hate having to be "mean" but that poor dog.
I adore dogs and would love to have one of my own so to see someone behaving that frivously with a creature hey are lucky enough to have...seriously gets my goat.
Anyway, rant of the day=done.
