Her loss to the max.... what a silly way to end things especially since you saw her in person a few times...

Obviously that was supposed to be arse* not arose lol.

And that is probably the most EPIC failure of leadership I've ever heard of. This is one thing about volunteer organizations I've dealt with and hate!


Go find someone that appreciates you ;P

Thanks Cherrij, Christy and Maggie!

I'm just really in shock still. I can't believe that she didn't talk to me about what the problem was. Maybe I'm weird, but that's my first line of 'defense' with people I have to be around. If they do something I don't like and can't get over, I TALK TO THEM about it!!
And what happened to all the work I did with Fabio? I mean, I helped make her 'wild' 'spooky' horse, who was doing literally nothing, INTO A THERAPY HORSE.
But somehow I made all the 'normal' horses crazy, completely out of the blue? Did I use voodoo to transfer Fabs' crazy into Buddy and Skippy?? Explain to me how that worked.



I hope Fabs can keep it up without me there. I'm going to miss him. :(



Ehhhh. Anyway. I hung out with my cousin, it was wonderful. :) Then I came home and snuggled Lacey for a bit. She's the best comforter there is!
It was pretty funny getting Lacey+the goats into their stalls. They were chilling allll the way down at the bottom of the pasture - it's windy and Lacey likes down there when it's windy... I think she maybe feels safer somehow.
Anyway, the goat were over in the llamas pasture, of course! I collected Lacey first, then started calling the goats and they came along quite happily. However, Atti hopped the fence...then Hazel tried and failed [she went to hop over the fence, misjudged the distance and brought her front legs down too soon]. She seemed to remember her stuck-in-fence-fiasco so, instead of retrying at that same place, she went trotting off to find a place where she could squeeze under the fence, instead of jumping. I thought that was quite creative of her, given that she had to walk about 20 feet away from Atti and Lacey, then find a spot in the fence, and weasel her way through. Problem solving goat!! Haha
[I wish it wasn't so expensive to install a taller, more goat proof fence between the llamas and the goats! However, it'd be like $500+ to do it and well...yeahhhhh]

On the Atti front, guess who's learned a new trick? ;) 1. He's now pro at "shake hands" which is hiiiiilarious. 2. He's learning "up!" which is basically rearing on command. Not sure how bright of an idea that one was to teach...but so far he's realized that he only gets praised when he does it on command and that he's not allowed to do it within 'range' of humans. So basically he backs up 4+ steps, THEN rears.

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

That's crazy. I would just keep looking around for another stable, you know what you're doing with the horses and anyone would be lucky to have your help. I don't think I could handle working for that crazy lady anyway, you obviously improved things there for her but for some reason she didn't accept you. *hugs* At least you still have Lacey!

P.S. More pictures?!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, amp! :) I'm sure something better is coming along, hopefully soon! Haha
And really, this is probably for the best. This is my senior year of college and having the classes I need to take coincide with the days I had available was already hard for this term. What would it be like next term and the following term?
Now I'm just bummed that I'm stuck with the awful school schedule I have!! Haha

Interesting, very random, fact: Gman had had a temp job and it ended yesterday. MY job 'ended' yesterday. PARALLEL LIVES, I tell you!!


And here we have a ton of pictures, to get our minds happy. :)

First, from a few days ago.



From that trail ride. :)





Today.

"Hey friend!!"



"Huh. Well I'm not superrrr thrilled that you don't seem to have treats..."



"You actually don't have treats? For real? NO PHOTOS FOR YOU!"





And then, the mysterious, magical, one eared Lacey!!




Hope you enjoyed!!

Lacey's treat pictures remind me how today, we stopped at our friends place with Teddy after our forest workout, and she gave him a sugar cube. He kept checking her sleeves, gloves, face, neck, chest, sides, trousers, everything for more sugar. Whenever I opened the zipper of my pocket, he immediately checked if I have anything. Then he got told off, to back up and get out of our space. He actually almost bit her a bit later.. he is very emotional when it comes to food or cuddles

Haha that's hilarious...but also terrifying, Cherrij! Luckily Lacey isn't super food oriented so she's happy if you have treats but if you don't have anything she'll just be kind of "oh. RUDE." and then get over it. Haha

More pictures:

[Lacey decided to be all photogenic -really, when is she NOT photogenic??- and well, have to share...right? Haha]



"oh no! Where are the goats!!"

[This is basically her QH impression..she does a good job! Haha]



"Well, they seeeeem ok...I don't hear baahing!"



"But I better check anyway."

I still can't believe she's almost 30...and blind. I would NEVER guess either of those. You're doing so fantastic with her Wallaby!
