Watching that llama video brings to mind:

"Tina! Come and get some ham!"

Oh my gosh!! CAROLINE!! That's hilarious! I can't believe I didn't think of that!!! I'm laughing so hard! GOOD ONE.


1. Lacey went all lame again. That was a bummer situation UNTIL I realized that what was bothering her was a slight flare in her hoof that was adding undue pressure to the inside of her left front pastern = where that old injury of hers was/is.
I guess the hoof trimmer must have just missed it last trim/didn't back it up enough..
In any case, I was able to really back up her toe on that side and take off the flare [with my rasp] and she was noticeably sounder within minutes. And she was sounder today than she was yesterday so I think I'm on the right track.

I'm so glad I spent that year trimming her! Even though I don't usually trim her anymore, I love that I have that insider knowledge of what kind of trim Miss L needs and I know how to perform said trim myself.
Anyway, hopefully, now that she's back on the road to soundness, we'll be able to go for a ride this week. It's supposed to be really nice tomorrow..hopefully that works out.


Stuff, a lot of stuff, went down with NG tonight.
So you know how last week was weird?

This week, all my usual pew-buddies were MIA. So I said to NG "Can I sit with you, or you sit with me? Otherwise I'm going to be all alone.." And he immediately, like he was relieved or something, said sure and asked where I was sitting.

Then once we were sitting down and chatting, he told me that he was trying to get a group together to watch the Kentucky Derby at the local racetrack and that I should come. HA. I appreciate planning ahead. 2 months ahead though, really? This guy, he makes me laugh so much.
But he told me that he remembered how I hadn't ever been to the races and he feels like it should, as a horse person, be on my bucket list. Hahaha

Accidentally I think I came across as less stoked about it than I meant to come across as - you know, the whole "oh cooool....." disparaging thing and he seemed a little put out. So I said something about how I was bummed we never did anything this term and he told me basically that he was in class when I had told him I was available, but that next term his schedule was better and we'd "have to do something." [why didn't he TELL me this?? But whatever, he's a dude. And I'm not taking it personally.]

Then, later, as we were walking out of church, I asked him what he was doing this week. He told me that he wasn't really doing anything and that he found that super frustrating.
....annnnnnd I invited him to go to the zoo with Gman and that other friend on Thursday.

And from his reaction, he might actually come!
Gman is thrillllled: "GOOD! That'll save you from going alone with him. We'll check him out and approve/deny him :)"
And my other friend is real stoked too.

I hope NG comes...It's hard to really figure someone out when you only see them for an hour, or two, once a week and talk to them for maybe 15 minutes each time. I mean, I like who he is in that short amount of time...but even super annoying people aren't so bad if you only talk to them for 15 minutes...
So hopefully he comes.
And I REALLY want Gman to meet this guy and tell me his opinion. So it could be good all around.

AND! Inviting NG to the zoo with us GOT HIM TO ASK ME FOR MY PHONE NUMBER!! Finally.
So hopefully that means he might really like to come. I'll text him on Tuesday or Wednesday to find out for sure. Unless he texts me first? Haha We'll see.

I hope you guys are well!!!

Awww I hope the zoo trip goes well! When reading your posts where it says NG I always read it as "NatGeo" as in...National Geographic lol I can't keep myself from doing it.

Haha that's great, Julia! I loveeee National Geographic! And you know that's what I'm going to think of now too. Hahaha I have an entire 3 bookshelves devoted to NatGeo' great-grandma collected them, then my grandparents collected them, and now I kinda collect them. I have them going back to 1912-ish! It's crazy. Some of those old was such a different time!
I will be sure to report back after the zoo. I haven't heard from NG yet so I'll probably text him tomorrow something like "Do you think you'll come to the zoo tomorrow? You should come!" [he always say "you should come!" to me when he's invited me to stuff=a little mirroring never hurt]
I hope, but I don't hope that he makes me nervous that he might, but I'm starting to care about him and I want to know what Gman thinks of him...just to be sure NG is actually the good person I think he is.
NG is so awkward.
Funny story: on Sunday, midst of the service, he turned to me not wearing his glasses anymore. He said "I lost my glasses...?" and we started looking for them. Once we found them, he demonstrated how he lost them - somehow he basically karate-chopped himself IN THE FACE=flinging his glasses into the pew in front of us. HYSTERICAL. I'm still laughing about it. Haha

Also, I realized I forgot to share with you guys about how I went to this horse expo-thing on Saturday!
It was pretty great, I went a few years ago and I liked this year better. There was still an unfortunate amount of handsy riders in strong curb bits, but 75% of the riders were pretty darn kind-handed. I loved it.

There was this one guy who we saw the other year who has a "Friesan Dance Troupe" aka Friesans and Friesan-cross stallions who are that whole Mexican-dancing-horse stuff. It was infuriating last time and it was just as bad this time.
The horses are all clearly terrified and riddled with behavior issues [this year one of his horses reared over backwards, narrowly missing him, after "dancing" for 5 minutes straight]...IT'S THE WORST.
In any case, I did not take pictures of that.


Um, so someone should buy this one for me??

This guy was teaching a class on some kind of Cowboy Dressage.
This horse was giving him alllll kinds of sass.
But look at it!
I'd be fine with that in my pasture, thank you!

A mule I would like to own.
This was probably THE MOST well behaved equine there. He/she was amazzzzing. Such a good mule.

Then there was the "Stallion Showcase"

Some reining stallions...

A Gypsy Vanner stallion.
[my mom looked at him inquisitively for a while, then said "That's a pregnant girl, right? There's no way it's just that fat..right??" hahahaha That's a stallion. Haha]

And a young Rhinelander stallion.

Then there were Icelandics EVERYWHERE


Then this lady did a dressage routine with her Haflinger, Star Wars. STAR WARS.
They were AMAZING. I was so impressed.

And Miss Lacey this morning:

Plus a flower last night.

That mule is probably the most horse looking mule I've ever seen. I guess because of the chrome? I don't know...its like it has a super-horsey face and body, then BAM. Giant ears. I love it so much.

Thanks glacierbay!

RIGHT, Christy??!! THE BEST. He was THE BEST tooo. She started off ponying her younger Haflinger off him and the younger horse was giving them both all kinds of sass [first show]. The rider ended up basically dropped her reins fully on Star Wars, to deal with the young horse, and just off her leg/magic, he stayed under control+did every figure she asked him to do+was just so well behaved even though her attention was totally on the other horse!
I can't say Lacey would have been even that good and she's the queeeen of ponying.

I agree, Allyson! I wish I knew "what" he was - like what breeds. Maybe we're just used to seeing backyard mules and he's like a legitly well bred mule? But yeah, he[she?] was some kind of classy animal. And that chrome! I do love lots of chrome. Haha

1. Funny NG [NatGeo? Haha] story: I texted him this morning, at about 11am, to find out if he was coming tomorrow.
He finallllly texted me back, at 2, saying that he would "come if [I] come to the Kentucky Derby" [pretty sure he's referencing his Kentucky Derby thing that I didn't seem thrilled about]
So I get that text and, as I'm trying to think of something to respond with, I get another text that's just "haha". He must have decided that that sounded harsh or something..
He is literally the most awkward person.
I love it.

In any case, I texted him back saying that was very sneaky, but that I would come to the Kentucky Derby...and that I had been planning to anyway.

Let's see you respond to THAT, funny guy.

In any case, this is good.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow!
DunDunDUN. We're going to have a blast.
Well, we would have had a tn of fun anyway but this adds more intrigue. Like a Spanish telenovella, or something.

Also, I described Gman to NG as my brother/best friend....90% sure NG thinks Gman is my literal brother. Hahahahaha YES.


2. It's Atticus' second birthday today!!

He's such a grownup! So weird to think I could still have him in 14 years...I hope that'll happen!

My little man. <3

And, of course, I will report back after the zoo tomorrow and hopefully have lots of zoo pictures to share!
