Lilly Fair - registered 9 yo "chestnut" Spanish arab mare (we all know she's really a sorrel...lol). Trail horse/soon to be endurance. She's a good lass...loves attention, great with her feet, loading etc.. Very good natured. We took her on a long walk today up a trail...she saw her first horse-eating burro! Today marks our 1 week anniversary together. <3

Oh god and does she ever love to EAT. heh

She came to us with her fronts needing a trim. The farrier should be out in a week. But yeah, here are two newer pics of my beatiful little prima donna:

This is my hunny bun, Lacey. She isn't registered and I only know what her dad's side of her pedigree looks like, but her dad was a mix of mostly Polish and some Egyptian breeding.

She's 24 and still thinks that she's the Fonz. Haha

You asked for pictures and you got them! haha
I've owned her for a year. Most of that time has been spent trying to get her fit (she was a pasture puff for 3 years at least before I got her) and sane (she was 200-300lbs overweight and basically like a little kid on a hardcore sugar high) so we had to do some behavior modification. Thankfully she's a quick learner so she learned really fast that throwing tantrums gets her nowhere. Currently I'm finishing her neck reining skills and we're working on installing a "jog" into her repertoire. =D

A picture of her as a "Fatty McFat Fat Fatty" (that was her nickname...hahahaha):

I love Lacey. IMO that belly is NOTHING in comparison to what Ms. Chubchub is currently sporting (points at above pictures). ;) (Psst - don't tell Lilly I said she was fat...;) )

WSArabians - Thank you! I suppose she'd be your new BFF if you promised to constantly shovel apple-molasses nibblies into her mouth for the rest of eternity.

Hahaha Ms. Chubchub! That's a hilarious nickname!
It was less that Lacey had a belly and more that he entire structure was covered in a thick layer of fat. For instance, it took three people to stuff her into an english saddle with a huge girth (that normally fits a 16.3 muttly horse that looks like a Perch, all heavyset and all that). It was really gross.
Your girl is super adorable too! I'm a fan of sorrels/chestnuts, I'm not really sure why... Maybe it's because I'm a redhead? haha

lol, I know what you mean. I had to buy a new girth today because the one that came with her 2nd hand English saddle was...a bit too short, hehe. Keep in mind it was previously used on this 15.3 hh paint...:-| (Lillykins is 14.3). We'll get her into shape soon enough...and myself in the process, I suspect. ;) Certainly if I keep on handwalking her up huge hills like we did this morning...!

I have three arabs (though for some reason I can only find a picture of the tail-end of the grey one...)

They are in the pasture next to the babies. These pictures are from the day Phoenix was born, so they were checking out what was going on...

I have two. They are pasture pets mostly, but Deja trail rides some. Mana will be my riding horse when Deja is too old and ornery to be ridden anymore.
I finally figured out why Deja's tail was shrinking...:?

Haha, I think Deja wins the giant belly award!
