Snow pony Lacey!
 
It FINALLY snowed enough today that I was able to ride in the snow for the first time ever!
It was so much fun. Lacey was feeling full of it so we did a little galloping (her choice, not mine, hahaha, it's great when you ask your horse to canter and they choose a speed that's like a bazillion times faster than a canter, haha) as well as some leisurely walking.

First up we have a picture I took of her the other day, I'm kinda trying to keep a picture record of how she's looking, body-condition-wise, so that even though I'm currently horribly barn blind, I'll be able to see the changes better.

Not bad for a, going-on, 26 year old, right? haha
She's such a classy lady.

Then, today:

Snow!

Lacey and her buddies. They were having a blast before I showed up. I could hear them squealing at each other when I was still inside my house. Silly girls!!
The one looking at the camera is Bailey and the one in the back is Roxy. Roxy is 6 and Bailey is 12. Bailey is an Arab/Paint and Roxy is a TB/Paint.

Getting ready to leave for our ride...

Lacey (and the llama's) field from the road at the bottom that we have to go on to get to our favorite trail.

they are some lovely pictures you have taken. Your mare is in great shape for her age. I have two veteran mares and i have to say I love the oldies. looks like you had a great time. That last picture is great!

Heatherloveslottie 02-24-2011 05:23 PM

Wow, it looks beautiful!
I loved the last picture, I almost laughed out loud :')

I am inspired to go out to the barn. But my horse gets so much snow balled in his feet that I can't ride in the snow. we had 6 inches here.

She's 26? Wow, I thought she was just a young filly from the first picture. xD Very youthful and gorgeous horse. ^^

Thanks! I love the oldies too. There's just something that draws me to them, I don't think I've ever felt very attached to a horse that was under 14. :lol:
We did have a great time! And thanks! I liked it too!

It was gorgeous! It's mostly melted now though, which is a bummer, but I'm super glad that I was able to get some nice pictures to remember it by! Haha
And thanks! I liked it too! Lacey is the queen of expressive yawning. Heehee

Sad day! I was surprised with Lacey, I thought for sure that I'd have to de-ice her feet at some point but the ice "pads" kept popping out! It was very interesting. Have you tried putting vaseline or cooking spray in his hooves? I've heard that that can help, maybe?
Six inches? That sounds awesome! I love snow, a lot. Haha We only got maybe 4 inches.

She is! 26 going on 4! :lol: She thinks she's some young thang, the words "slowing down" aren't acceptable words in her life dictionary. Haha
Thanks! I feel very lucky and blessed to have her in my life.

That looks beautiful!! Haha I wish I could share some of our snow with you! We've had a lot and I wish it would stop snowing!! Haha she's a cutie:) It looks like you had fun:)

Yay Lacey! Her yawn is the cutest! Thelma goes on to 23 this year! OMG. Crazy, but when I get around to lunging her she always wants to be trotting to the point where she is about to break into a canter if I let her. Silly girl.

They must think they are 23 and 26 in human years, not horse years!

RedTree 02-24-2011 09:18 PM

love Lacey pics :D

she is one gorgeous mare

Reiterin 02-24-2011 09:20 PM

beautiful day, all in all! -still no riding in snow for me though. My horsey lives too far away for me to get to her when it snows. =P
