Stopping by with a late evening vote:) Whew, I am tired. It has been a crazy strange day. But my Fancy time made it all well at the end of this day.
I have ridden Fancy three days straight now. Each day has gotten better. I pray this trend continues:) When I went out this afternoon Fancy was running around like something WILD! Bucking, jumping, rearing, and running! I looked at her and thouhgt maybe I shouldn't get on her today. Well I decided to work it out. In the corral we did some ground work and I mounted her. Rode about 5 minutes, she was listening very well:) So I dismounted and headed out into the yard. We did some more groundwork, then I mounted and she kept her head straight out and didn't move. She is a little stiff on the right side, so I decided to work on right circles. We done several small circles until she begin to listen calmly. As she relaxed and began to listen we made larger circles. Boy, this was better than yesterday! I decided to circle things like the tree, the dog lot, the shed and Fancy was very good. I even let her walk fast and I enjoyed it:) I wish I could have seen it!!!!! We went into the side yard and she did speed up when she thought we were going out of the driveway. More tight circles and back into the back yard, over and over until she calmed down. Since she wanted to go out, I headed to the other driveway and went out and up into the first driveway, did this a few times. Then we walked up and down the street a few times. Fancy didn't want to go in the upper driveway, so, I decided to take her up the street. I walked her past the other horses because I didn't know how she would act. She looked at them and kept going, like she was saying look at me! She ate some grass and then I asked her if she could be a good girl and ride me home past the other horses. Believe it or not, Fancy nodded her head up and down. I put her bridle back on and she stood perfectly still while I mounted and we walked home!!!!!!!!! The only problem I had was, again she didn't want to go in the drive. I gave her a tap on the shoulder and she went on:) I groomed her while she ate grass:) Now I am all cleaned up and tired:)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
We Love our long eared friend Betsy;
"I'm the boss...Anything I bray goes!" (fun mule fact)
