I was just thinking that I love that mule - gorgeous creature that it is. I guess I've never really seen a mule all spiffed up...just hanging out in Amish pastures....and at the Christmas tree farm that I go to. Lol.

Attttttttttti happy birthday! He is so photogenic, love him and his whole demeanor.

Good luck with NatGeo & Gman!!! All of your zoo trips make me feel the need to go to the zoo...I haven't been in a loooooong time.

I bet you're right, Christy! I could definitely see that.
Atti says thanks! Haha

Julia, Atti says thanks! He's sure something. I'm glad he's mine. He may be crazzzy, but I love the little booger.
You should go! Actually, maybe not. I guess "my" zoo is one of the best in the US or something...if you have sad zoos near you, you should avoid them. Haha But yeah, I love that there's a zoo so "close" to me! And it works out pretty well as a "hanging out" spot because it's easy for me to get to and Gman/most of my other friends don't have to go tooo far to get there. [I live about an hour away from most of my friends/the zoo which makes hanging out hard, but the train goes straight to the zoo=ideal].


Gman and my other friend LOVE NG. Like a lot. They think he's the greatest.

Their comments were that:
1. He seems super genuine, like he's not trying to be anybody but himself.
2. [from my female friend] "he's a hottie! You did not say he was so good looking!! He is ADORABLE."
3. From Gman, after NG left and we were 'playing' in the giftshop+looking at the jewelry+he found a ring that I "needed" but it only fit on my ring finger, "Sorry NG! Looks like she's marrying to the Zoo and not you! Darn." Awkward.
4. When I told them about the "Kentucky Derby Agreement", after NG left: a chorus of "oooooohhhhhh"s went up and they both screeched "DTR, DTR!" ["Define The Relationship"]

And a bunch of other stuff.
But it went super super well.
Really could not have gone better.

My female friend who went, unprompted-ly, said that she could tell NG likes me, but he's just shy... Who knows. But he did actually come soo...we can draw our own conclusions.


In any case, about an hour ago, NG texted me saying "Thanks again for inviting me. I had fun...too much fun."
Not sure what that means...but how cute is that? He's sweet.

1. The most hysterical video of all time. It's probably not as funny to you guys as it is to me but I'm still laughing so much.
That laughter in the background? Definitely NG. He has THE BEST laugh. Oh my goodness. His laugh just makes me laugh.

Our group picture.
We were somehow, accidentally, the most color-coordinated people in the zoo. Haha YES PLEASE.

NG is on...our left? Then Gman's little brother [can you believe that kid is TWELVE?? Yes, 1-2. ], then Gman, then Gman/my friend from camp, then me!

AND! The baby LIONS!!!

So sleepy.

HOW does a 12 year old look almost 18 and I look 12?! Oh the cruelties of this world!

Anyways, sounds like a great trip. I wish I could talk my friends into going to the zoo...and some how not have me drive. We have a really nice one in Houston, about an hour away, but it is SCARY...SCARY SCARY SCARY to drive down there. Houston drivers = heartless speed demons who run you over if you go any less than 10 mph over the speed limit. Your zoo though, sounds way better than ours, and the animals actually come OUT. There are always so many people at ours that the animals hide pretty much 24/7.

Those lion cubs...cutest little babies ever.

So I'm hoping for the best, preparing for the worst.
I saw the ultrasound and her small intestines looked like 2 little sausages. Plus her colon[?] was overly big too.
Her belly is SUPER big from the blockage, but, very surprisingly, overall she seems comfortable.

The vet was really impressed with her. She said that she's never seen a horse with such a bad ultrasound be so laid-back and calm. [I'm not sure how I feel about this - I would not be surprised if Lacey is hiding her pain for me..she's like that and it worries me a little?]

Unfortunately, our favorite vet wasn't able to come out so we had to use someone from a different practice [my least favorite practice].

In any case, the vet advised me to wait until the morning to make any decisions.
The ultrasound looked really bad, but Lacey doesn't have a fever, her heart rate was 44[??], and her gum color was great = the vet wanted to give her a chance before letting her go.

Personally, I just don't want her to be in pain. I don't want her to "go" in pain.
But if the vet feels strongly enough that she should be given a chance, CLEARLY I am all for that!!

So we'll see. Maybe that Unicorn magic will help...I mean, the vet -after trying to tube her- looked at Lacey, stroked her forehead, and said "you ARE a Unicorn, aren't you?"
Of course, we all know this already BUT this vet had never seen Lacey before. She had never heard that Lacey's alter-ego is a Unicorn=who knows.

But, most of all, I want her to be comfortable and happy.

Plus side: this night has been full of blessings -
1. Lacey's massage lady came right out when I called her [I figured that Lacey knows her well enough+she has years of horse experience=first person I thought to call] and she was just THERE. Being real helpful and just all around a gem. She's even coming back in the morning, at 7:30am, to be here for Lacey and I.
2. The vet isn't charging me for ultrasounding in the morning.
3. If Lacey is comfortable at midnight, I get to sleep until 5am. The vet gave me sedation for Lacey, in case she's not doing well at midnight.

And oh my gosh, guys. Lacey is the sweetest. Even before she had had any pain medication or anything, she was a whinnying/nickering machine. She was talking and talkingggg to me.
That horse.

Anyway, that's basically the low-down+everything I know.

Hopefully the morning will bring new hope.

Funny how a day can go from SO GOOD to SO BAD in a matter of seconds.
But at least there is a glimmer of hope and so many blessings.
