    You're probably right, Caroline! :) I can't wait to put new ones on him this summer! He's going to LOVE that. Hahahaha

    Julia- Hahaha! I've seen pictures of parents putting their little kids on the backs of their large goats! I kinda feel like that's very similar to riding a mini though so I'm not superrrr on board...

    I think a sheep is just a sheep...WEIRD. I guess like moose and moose??



    Ok, so the property owners of Lacey/the goats' pasture offered to buy Lacey a grave marker.
    And they're asking me to tell them what I'd like written on it as soon as possible.

    And I don't know what to have written on it?
    I want it to be unique but appropriately "us"...

    So far I'm thinking:
    Lacey
    1985-March 28, 2014

    .....then I get stuck.

    So many things I could write:
    Sassypants,
    A soulmate never dies,
    Unicorn among horses,
    Beloved by all,
    You made me brave,
    ........
    Maybe "Sassypants: forever a unicorn among horses"??
    That sounds pretty good and sums her up, kinda?
    They didn't give me any kind of letter/word limit but I figure it should be short?

    If any of you have brilliant suggestions, PLEASE TELL ME!

    One of my favorite horsey quotes is

    "Bread may feed my body, but my horse feeds my soul."

    It has a way of saying that you were merely only sustaining before you met Lacey, and that she helped you flourish mentally and spiritually.

    Orrrr:

    "To the world, you may be just another horse. But to me, you are the world."

    Spinoff of some Brad Paisley lyrics, yeeeaaa.

    If it needs to be really short, I think "You made me brave" is really sweet. Or maybe, "Thank you for making me brave, my Sassy Unicorn." After all, it really does seem like she was what gave you the confidence to be YOU, and that is such a huge thing.

    How absolutely sweet of the pasture owners.

    How thoughtful of them! I'm not so good with words, but I do know that something will come to you and it will just feel right.

    Go with whatever the first one is that popped into your head.

    As soon as they said you could have a grave marker there what was the first words you thought of....usually the right ones :)

    I love those Kayella!! Thanks!

    Thanks Allyson! I like that!

    Right, Julia? I'm ok with strings of words, but give me a 5 word limit and I'm at a loss.

    Maybe "Together we became brave"...
    I don't know, when I first met her, she was spooky as all get-out. It always seemed like the longer we were together, the more comfortable we both became in our own skins. I always talk about how she changed me, but looking back over videos we took over the years, she was clearly more anxious in year 1 than she was in February.

    Hm, I like that a lot.
    I think I'll go with that one. It sums up our relationship but doesn't end it, you know?

    1. I've started having dreams everynight where I'm hugging Lacey.
    Where she's hugging me like she always loved to - she'd stick her head over my shoulder and rest her throatlatch on my shoulder, and I'd wrap my arms around her neck and bury my head in her neck.
    In my dreams, she's all furry like she is in the winter, and we just hug and hug and hug.

    They're those really real dreams and I've been waking up not sure if the thing I've woken into is the real [bad] dream or real life.

    On one hand, I'm so glad she's made it back into my dreams...but on the other, it makes me really miss her.
    She lived in my dreams before I knew her, lived in my life while she was here, and now she's returned to my dreams.

    2. I did something really crazy, guys.
    Really, really crazy.

    Last night I was on Craigslist and I saw an ad looking for a summer trail ride guide, for beach rides.
    And I applied.
    And they called me.
    And I have an interview next Friday at 2:30pm [May 2nd].

    WHAT???!!

    If I get it, that means I would have to move to the beach for the summer [it's about 2 hours from y house now to this place] and do all kinds of other crazy things.
    But I figure that a] this is the summer after I get out of college=time to do something I won't be able to do again once I'm more tied down, b] can't get it if I don't apply, c] it's something Lacey would have approved of and I would have never been even able to consider that kind of move/anything while she was still here, and d] I've spent the last 23 years of my life being safe and predictable, maybe it's time to do something unexpected.

    So anyway.

    I'm kinda really excited. I mean, I only submitted the application last night at like 9pm and I already have an INTERVIEW??
    And I get to ride in the interview.
    I'm really glad that's part of the interview, but I'm also a little nervous - I haven't ridden in.....over a month?? That's probably the longest I've gone without riding in many many years - longer than I had Lacey.

    Anyway, wish me luck.
    I'm not sure if I really want it [who'll look after the goats, etc] but it should be fun either way!


    3. This video of Hazel and Atti.

    LOOK AT HAZEL RUN!! MSM seriously has to be magic, or something.


    4. This drawing.
    Earth Day was yesterday - Happy Earth Day!




    5. NG liked a post of mine on Facebook. So apparently we're still that much of friends??
    Whatever.
    I'm happy about it though! At the very least, he's a really fun friend and you can never have too many of those.

    BUT I'm not over-analyzing it.




    TODAY AS BEEN CRAZY!!

    Oooooh, summer trail guide on a BEACH? Yes. Good luck with your interview- I know they'll love you! I mean come on.

    Don't worry about logistics yet- if this is meant to be, God will work it out and someone will step up to take care of your trouble makers...er...I mean, perfect citizens.

    I would so take that job if I was you. You'll be challenged, though, dealing with so many people who either know nothing about horses , or think they do, but don't.

    Don't you just LOVE Emily's drawings? I keep hastling her to put them in the book that I keep hastling her to write. By the time she writes it, she will have to put me in the credits@!
