Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).

2 year anniversary

This photo is from October 2008....and on November 3rd, 2008 my husband and I rescued and purchased Lycius Two, aka Lazarus, our mighty OTTB and my first horse!

Little did Laz know (or maybe he did) all the years of "Can I have a pony PUHLEASE?!!" of love was going into him...

Look at this handsome beast...and my handsome horse too! ;)
What fun we've had these past two years, and lots of learning (eesh!)...and we will continue to have for YEARS to come!
We love you Lazarus!!!
