Lacey and I.

I have a Wintersun update to make, but for now I wanted to drop by and share this - because it's Lacey! My first pony. My mum just uploaded this photo of us to Facebook, and I didn't even know it existed so it made me smile. This is about sixteen/seventeen years ago. We used to go out on picnic rides (hence my backpack) with Mum either walking or cycling alongside us - cycling when I was feeling braver, as I liked to be on the leading rein. Irregardless of the (slightly worried?!) smile on my face, you can probably see that I was a very nervous rider! I suspect my thoughts at the time were: I'm happy to be having a photo of me on my pony, but please come back and hold her, mummy, before something REALLY VERY BAD HAPPENS. To be fair to myself, Lacey did have a habit of bolting when scared. And to be fair to her, I also had a habit of screaming like a banshee when she did so, and she would always, always stop and wait when I inevitably fell off. Usually into some nettles. Those bastards were everywhere.

XD The poor pony had to put up with a lot from me. Also, if anyone had told me at this point that I would end up riding Shire horses and demi-demons in disguise (aka Pepsi, who I did actually know back then and was scared of), I would never have believed them.

Hmm nettles, I never knew what they were called, but when I googled them I totally recognized them, I hate those things.

Actually I knew them as "itch weed" which is a nickname for them I guess.

She reminds me of Merrylegs.

Haha, yes! That's a sweet reference. :) She was totally a little Merrylegs (I say was - as far as I'm aware she's still going strong, although she must be 27 by now).

Thanks! Three, and two of them I still have - although not living with me at the moment, unfortunately (I moved away last year, so they're still with my parents).

what an adorable picture! She is the cutest! I was the opposite - ridiculously brave when I was little... now, not so much :(

I lOVE the round pony! No, not good for them to be that round, but try and stop 'em, the little ...

And yes, I think you had reason to be worried... but at least she wouldn't gallop off into the sunset when she dumped you.
