There really isn't a way to put how I feel about Lacey into words. She's like a cool breeze on a hot sticky day or my favorite food to eat when I'm hungry. My insides get happy thinking about her and I could talk about her forever if you wanted me to. She's basically my favorite best friend. Sometimes I feel like my real life began the day I met her and that it will end again the day she passes away.

She needs me as much as I need her and I think that's part of what makes our bond so great. She was about a week away from being put down the day I met her, so basically her life began again the day she met me too.
Her previous owner was at a loss between Lacey's age and her behavior issues. Not many people want a "crazy" 24 year old, never-been-bred-so-no-hope-of-a-foal mare, even if said mare is free, surprisingly enough. Haha And since her previous owner wanted to find her the perfect owner (Lacey was originally destined to be the one that lady kept until Lacey died so it was very important to her that Lacey went to the right place or not at all) that made the new owner search even harder. Thankfully her previous owner saw something in me and gave Lacey to my trainer with the stipulation that Lacey is to be mine one day.

My one fear is that she'll die before I can actually call her officially "my" horse, have the bill of sale to back that up, and the warm snuggly barn for her to hide from the rain in but I hope she'll hold on long enough for me to repay her for what she's done to me.
I know she, for some reason, adores me, even when I haven't specifically done anything to make her love me. I just laid down the law and made sure the laws were good. People are always telling me that she loves me, I wonder how they can tell? I mean, Lacey isn't one of those affectionate horses, she's just kinda there, but I've had at least 5 or 6 people tell me out of the blue that they can tell that Lacey adores the heck out of me.

She's my babydoll and that's not ever going to change. Boys and friends will come second to her, always.

I've loved other horses before her but something about Lacey is me, only it's me on the inside of her. If that makes any sense.

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Vida, that is the best thing about horses. They are the best phychologists. They listen without judgement, love regardless of the secrets you tell them, never laugh at your misfortune or your fears, and don't ask any of those silly questions like "MmmHmm, and how does that make you feel?"
