Fancy leaves a good night VOTE 4 YOU :~)
Please vote Lady Aristocrat 232456 for HOTD
It was a lovely day until the rains came in. There was a long storm that recently ended. It feels really nice outside these days.
Trigger was blind in one eye before we got him. Monday his blind eye was very cloudy. Today the vet told me Trigger is fine long as he is in no pain. He is such a great kids horse. I hate that something happened to his eye and I pray that I can take good care of him from now on.

Please visit Sassy Sapphire #193884 and leave an encouraging word. From what I can tell, her blog to me says Sassy Sapphire's owner lost her father this past Sunday morning.

One of my friends was out last Saturday at one of the state parks riding and there was an accident. Her friend dismounted to help and her friend's palomino TWH walked off. They were on the news tonight asking for help to find the missing horse. Please pray that they find Jasmine in good health very soon.

Very Important Message from Logan #237047: Could you please spread the word that my wrist is in really bad condition and I can't vote for people today! It is swelled up pretty bad and moving it hurts! Please spread the word!

Have a blessed and peaceful night

Any one enjoying any horse shows this weekend or any riding?

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free. And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me” (Lee Greenwood)

Little Cowboy went to see the Avengers Thursday night with his older brother.
Buttercup has been acting like a bucking rodeo horse. Then my brother got a cramp in his leg. LOL

Friday I used the clippers on Fancy for the second time. I allowed plenty of time for desensitizing. She was very good and seemed to enjoy the vibration of the clippers on her chin. It was funny, the way she kept moving her chin towards the clippers when I would move them away.

Saturday Fancy and I attended our 2nd horse show. This was a very first show for Cowboy and Trigger. There was a lot more horses competing in each class this time!
I was not able to keep up with how many horses were in each class this time. Fancy got 5th place in Open Halter all mares and 3rd place in Adult Western Non-Trotting. Fancy didn't place in Adult Halter English or Western this time.

Trigger was on his best ever behavior! Cowboy and Trigger placed in each event they entered! They got 4th place in Youth Western Walk/Jog, 2nd place in Youth Catalog Race, and 4th place in Youth Flag Race. Cowboy and Trigger received lots of comments on how they seemed perfect for one other. My little duo made a ton of friends of all ages. The farm dog took a liking to them too. People were saying that dog would have to go home with Cowboy and Trigger. OH NO, Can't afford to feed any thing else! LOL :~)

Saturday and Sunday evenings were spent at the horse clinic. Fancy and I are learning how to be good show participants along with other members. During the halter and showmanship sessions Fancy was very good. Fancy was complemented on her ability to halt squarely. Under saddle, Fancy found a hyper buddy. Each time they met in the same spot of the arena, they would both kick up and get excited. They acted like they both saw something there. Nobody knows except the two of them. LOL. Sunday was much better. Fancy was complimented on being the first brave horse to cross the tarp. All horses behaved well!!!

Leaving a Friday vote and a smile ;~)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Cowboy Definitions:
Adam's Ale - Water.

Cowboy took Trigg to the vet after school today. I thought he might be a pony or something. LOL! But the vet says he is a full Arabian, just kind of small and he says that can be normal.

After our vet visit, Cowboy and I visited the farm. Buttercup has given her little heart to my brother after all. Buttercup was out, eating grass when my brother walked by, she actually wanted to follow him with ears forward and a very happy horsey expression! So different from weeks ago!!! I am happy for him.

I forgot to tell you, I got Fancy some sweet rolls for her birthday and she did not like them. I had to get Fancy some watermelon. But Trigger loved the sweet rolls, so I gave him the sweet rolls. Fancy would get in between Trigg and the sweet rolls and try to keep him from eating them. When she walked or turned away from them Trigg would try to sneak around her to get them. It would take him a while, but finally he would get to eat them. Those two were so funny.

Fancy and I are learning some things for our new halter and showmanship interest. It is going to take some time before we are ready for showmanship. But we can have fun learning in the meantime.

I may be offline Saturday. I will try and log in to vote contest if I can't do anything else.

Have a beautiful weekend!

I received a few blogs about the profile page I gave for Ergo yesterday being incorrect. (thanks for the heads up on that and I am sorry if some of you had trouble finding them) Ergo is now sharing profile page #230610 with Duke, as some of their profile pages have been deleted.

I only knew Ergo's owner for a short time. I can tell she sure was an awesome person from the few blogs we shared.

Before I fall into the bed, gotta tell of the past few days!!!
(remember the last time Cowboy rode Trigger out of the corral, which was the first time Cowboy rode Trigger out of the corral with out me leading, Trigger gave Cowboy a very unpleasant time.)
Well: Sunday evening, Cowboy rode Trigger in the backyard without my assistance and Trigger listened to him calmly and obediently.
Monday evening, I saddled Fancy and Trigger. Cowboy and Trigger followed Fancy and I around the yard and we decided to take them out. We went around 2 blocks and Trigger was quite the little pro. He didn't even balk when we walked through the car wash.
Tuesday, I hand walked Trigger to Cowboy's school, which took less than 30 minutes going very slowly as he was eating grass along the way. When the children came out Trigger neighed veerryyyy loudly! Everyone was thrilled to see Cowboy ride his horse home from school! But no one was happy as Cowboy riding his horse home from school!!! Trigger was a complete gentleman, except when he pooped on the school lawn. LOL.

Have a blessed night
Love Fancy & Frances

I hope you have enjoyed reading about the 'Legacy of Love' (so rightly named by Joyce) Joanna has left with us. We worked hard, win or lose JOANNA'S LEGACY OF LOVE WILL REMAIN IN OUR HEARTS.

I dedicate this special occasion of our first show together to Joanna and Pixie Dust.

Fancy spent Friday night in a blanket with hopes she would be more clean than dirty come morning. The back clip had come undone, but that blanket did serve the purpose. Fancy only had one area on the side of her neck that was dirty. Once at the farm, I cleaned her dirty spot and her feet before introducing Fancy to the sandy arena. At first she was a little excited to be in a new place, but soon settled down. We only entered two classes this time. Fancy was fine, except she did not like horses standing behind her. When horses were lined up behind us, Fancy kept trying to spin around to see exactly what they had in mind back there.
We entered class 2 Adult Halter with 6 entries and Fancy placed 3rd!!!! This was the first time I ever won a ribbon with any horse!!! I was so excited. We didn't do so well in Class 3 as we placed 5th out of 5. However, We did leave with 2 ribbons from our first show!!!

There is a possibility that King Kong may be going to a new home soon. This family likes him because he is so gentle and walks slow.

Fancy screamed at me as I cleaned the inside of her caddy. She thought I was going somewhere and she was more than ready to go!

Wednesday I rode Trigger around the yard and down the street to see how he would act. He tried to get out of a few things, but he didn't remember I saw my brother ride him and I knew he went anywhere he was told. So I popped his little butt with my crop and no more funny business mister. He went like a little gentleman. My little cowboy was watching. He is going to have to use the crop to get his point across next time. Poor Cowboy, he asked me to ride Trigger a few more days.

Since the trailer was hooked to the truck, I loaded Trigger in & out of the trailer since he doesn't like loading. Fancy was having a fit. LOL. After I let Trigger eat some grass I let Fancy eat some grass and we walked over to the trailer and she walked up in the trailer and looked back at me like aren't we going somewhere, I backed her out and she went back in. I wanted to take her for a ride, but gas prices will not allow fun trips right now. LOL.

Fancy's Perceptions during the month of April, are dedicated to Angels Joanna and Pixie Dust with hopes of seeing Pixie Dust as May HOTM.

I enjoyed a busy day. Cowboy and I groomed our mounts and saddled them for a ride. It was a windy day, but we rode outside the corral. Trigger had the mind to test little Cowboy today. The little fellow didn't quite do so well with his mount. With his dad walking beside him, Cowboy did manage to get Trigger to follow Fancy around the yard a few times.

After the ride, I washed Fancy's caddy. Didn't know how dirty that thing was. It is nice and clean now and ready for use. I was surprised at the amount of time it took to wash. Took me at least 2 hours. I would have loved to have some help! LOL!

"The wings of angels are often found on the backs of the least likely people." (Eric Honeycutt)

I sure did enjoy Indy's blog about the conversations with Angel Pixie Dust profile #101958.

I also enjoyed your responses to my Sunday's blog. Fancy acts like an older sister that is really mean to her little brother. She wants to keep an eye on him because she thinks he is going to touch something that belongs her. Silly mare. I rode her first then I let the kids ride Trigger and then Trigger grazed in the yard. After I put Trigger in for the night, I let Fancy graze in the yard. When I put her up she did not chase Trigg at all. I was very happy about that. I am sure Trigger was happier about that than I was. Fancy is not very mean to him when I spend time with her last. I think that makes her feel special when she gets my time before I go in for the night.

Saturday morning I missed a trail ride to pick up my brother's new filly. I have added her photos to King Kong's page. Her name is Buttercup, but my brother is planning to change that. He is looking forward to me helping him get her going. She seems to be a gentle girl. She is 3 years old now and will be 4 in August, but has not had much riding. Her riding experience is having small children led around on her.

Love from Fancy & Frances and Trigger & Cowboy ♥

Sunrise service is always nice, but this year's service was very inspirational. When the angels were mentioned, I thought of Joanna and Pixie Dust.

Does anyone know how much energy gaited horses really have? I thought I was going to use speed as a correction. But Fancy enjoyed that. LOL. she does not like when I simply give a little pop with the crop, but the speed thing, just didn't work out. She only enjoyed that. I enjoyed it too because she is really smooth and fun to ride! LOL.
Fancy got all the kiddie smooches today and Trigg gave all the kiddie rides, but he enjoyed some kiddie smooches too.

The CORRECT INFORMATION is Joanna Helen Wicke January 1, 1977-September 23, 2011.

I guess I am not very reliable at 3:30 in the morning. I appreciate Marion and Indy calling this to my attention and I apologize for the error.

There are a few active HorseChannel members that remember Joanna. If you remember Joanna, PLEASE share a blog on Fancy's page. I would love to read what you have shared with Joanna during her short stay here.

Hi! I hope you are doing well today looking forward to a horsey weekend and celebrating this Easter weekend. We are in a 3 day stretch of cold rain & I am freezing :) We are not expecting warmer temps, but we do expect the rain to clear up this afternoon. Then we can have some fun.

Your responses to my blogs have encouraged me during the blogs that I have written. Sometimes it is hard when you miss someone that has touched you in a special way. I thank you so much.

I really hope you have enjoyed reading and learned some things about our Angel Joanna. Thanks for reading these blogs and taking into consideration how Joanna touched many lives during her short stay on earth. We never knew just how giving she was until it was too late.

Be kind, be sweet, be loving to one another, because we don't know what a person is struggling with from day to day and we all have struggles.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
"We're all kissed by angels but some of us never think to pucker." (Terri Guillemets)

Joanna loved animals, but she had other loves in her life as well. Joanna was loved by not only her personal family and HorseChannel friends. I learned that Jane Seymour, star of Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, was a very personal close friend that paid several visits to Joanna. You see, people of all walks of life could benefit from knowing such a loving & kind spirit.

Joanna often mentioned Dancing With The Stars in her blogs. When Jane was on Dancing With The Stars I don't think Joanna would have missed a single show. Joanna has managed a fan website for Jane's Dancing With The Stars partner, Tony Dovolani and Karina Smirnoff. Joanna spent her last evening watching Dancing with the stars. ONLY NOW, I know how important the very thought of dancing must have been to Joanna. I bet the first thing she did when she arrived in Heaven was to dance. Something that so many of us take for granted. I hope that sometime today you will stand on your feet when you hear your favorite song or hum a tune to yourself and dance a few steps in honor of our Angel Joanna.

I hope through these blogs you can understand how unique Joanna was and the way she inspired me to try my best to be a better person. We all experience turbulence in our lives. But this young lady was able to look past the turbulence in her life with an amazing desire to share life and love with others. In spite of her many health issues, Joanna was a blessing to those that knew her.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
"God not only sends special angels into our lives, but sometimes He even sends them back again if we forget to take notes the first time!" ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

There are several photos displayed through out HorseChannel this month of Pixie Dust during one of her many visits at Joanna's bedside. Our dear friend, Pippin's owner, has created two wonderful videos and loaded them on HorseChannel in honor of Pixie and Joanna. You can view them in the videos and the titles are: 1. Remembering Joanna, 2. Pixie Dust: In Memory of Joanna.

I remember sharing daily blogs with Joanna. She seemed amused with the antics of my Fancy Walk N That Way. She even told me she looked forward to and enjoyed reading the things Fancy would do. I never met Joanna in person, but she made me feel like I was one of her close friends. I looked forward to seeing her blog on Fancy's page as well.

Susan with Sing and Princeton, sent an obituary to me by email. As I read it and saw the photo of Pixie during one of her many bedside visits with Joanna, my heart felt as if I had just received an electric shock. To know one so gentle and kind with such a strong loving heart, all I could think was how this very young woman, through her own illness, uplifted me so many times through her positive words with out revealing a single pain of her own, never complaining of life's difficulties. Can You imagine being so strong? This was a lesson to me. I may never be strong as I want to be. But now, I know it is possible.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
It is not because angels are holier than men or devils that makes them angels, but because they do not expect holiness from one another, but from God alone. ~William Blake

Sometime in 1991, Joanna came across 2 Shetland ponies for sale in a want ad. Both ponies were purchased by her family and given to Bloomfield Hills School Farm. Joanna named the ponies Tinkerbell & Pixie Dust. Joanna helped her mom create and teach 'LOVE-A-PONY', an afterschool and summer class for children. For seven years Joanna was with her ponies almost every day. It has been over 19 years since creating LOVE-A-PONY, and I have read that this pony class is still being taught this very day.

Joanna's was confined to her bed the last 9 years of her life, during which Pixie Dust was allowed to visit Joanna at her bedside. Joanna also made friends all across the world with the use of her computer, thanks to her dad for building a stand that allowed her to safely use the computer while lying down.

Pixie Dust at 21 years old, has joined Joanna in Heaven. I have read that this date was sometime around or on the 27 of February, 2012. I can only imagine the joy felt during that reunion.

Joanna was extraordinary. Always thinking of how she could help others, even through the use of her ponies. She loved unconditional and she reached out to others, even when she needed to be reached out to.

Joanna, a true inspiration ♥

A group of HorseChannel.com members have formed a group, known as the Angel Crew. The Angel Crew would like to win Angel Pixie Dust the honor of being HorseChannel's May Horse of the Month in honor of Joanna. If you would like to help, please visit Pixie Dust's HorseChannel page #101958 and leave a vote each day during the month of April 2012.

Pixie Dust, belonged to our Facebook pal and HorseChannel member, Joanna Wicke. Joanna was loved by all who knew her. She was always positive and uplifting to others. Joanna welcomed Fancy and I to HorseChannel with unbelievable love and daily support. After a disturbing disappearance of Joanna, Sadie's owner, Joyce informed us that Joanna had passed away in her sleep at the tender age of 34 on September 23, 2011. It was only then that her many health conditions were revealed. Even though being confined to her bed for the past 9 years, Joanna never once revealed a single pain to us. What a remarkable YOUNG person to have as a friend.
It was in 1991 that Joanna & her mom purchased Pixie Dust to share with the Bloomfield Hills School Farm. For 7 years Joanna helped her mom create & teach Love-A-Pony, an afterschool & summer class for children.

Joanna, A true inspiration ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Feelin Spring ☀
“Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party'” (Robin Williams)
Hello!
I see Cowboy & Trigg are developing a bond and it is the cutest little thing ♥ Trigger prefers Cowboy to me and that is a good thing.
Trigger did not know how to back up very well under saddle. Well we fixed that issue Saturday. Cowboy was not happy with me making Trigg learn to back. But once Trigg backed up peacefully for him, he was very happy. Sunday evening Trigger was backing quietly and willingly.

Sunday evening I spent special time with Fancy Chasey Pants first, which was a mistake. After putting her up I took Trigg out to work on his backing skills and let him graze. Fancy had a hissy fit. She screamed up a storm while running herself into an oblivion, which made my grooming efforts look quite pitiful.
Then I took my doggy Hollie for a walk. Fancy screamed and ran herself into a second oblivion. LOL!!!! At least I know Fancy still loves me :)

I sure enjoyed reading some interesting and fun blogs from the past week! I think every one is enjoying this spring weather that has greeted us early.

Have a Marvelously Blessed Monday
Love from Cowboy & Trigger and Fancy & Frances ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“More than color!”

I ENJOYED READING THE BLOGS ABOUT YOUR HORSES! THANKS FOR SHARING THOSE NEAT STORIES!!!

Early Sunday morning I looked to see what Fancy was up to. I saw my little busy body, Playgirl. She was at the end of the boards that make our 'L' pattern. Fancy put her head down and gave it a good look, then put her right hoof on the board. Lifted her head for a moment and then gave it another close look and put her left hoof on the board and commenced to walk on that board. Now this board is 12 feet wide or less. Probably 12 feet wide. But it is not wide enough for a horse to walk on. Fancy looked like a tight rope walker in the circus. I thought that was so cute. And I thought, she must really like our horsey toys and the things we do. LOL. How smart can my little girl be.

Cowboy and I enjoyed another day riding around my horsey toys. He is learning to be more confident with Trigger. I have to convince Cowboy that Trigger can do these things. And Cowboy has taken a liking to taking horsey photos with my camera. I think he is going to need his own camera soon :)

Slobbery Horsey Kisses and Cowboy huggs from Cowboy & Trigger and Fancy & Frances ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“It's you and me, Partner!”

Anything stick out in your mind about the first day you got your horse? Please tell us about that! We would love to read about it!
I was grooming Fancy before saddling her & noticed how tall she has grown over this past winter. It seems as if she grew over night!
Fancy is a lot calmer with Trigger than she was with Scotty. She nickers to me and comes to the gate when she sees me coming outside, just the same as she does when she lives alone. The first few days that Scotty was with us, Fancy acted like she was very upset about everything, (more like angry) and at times she was stand-offish.
However, poor Trigger can get this look on his face like no one loves him. He does this when I go out to Fancy and no one is talking to him or petting him. But it doesn't take long for Cowboy C to get out there and make Trigger happy.
Today I set up my play things and Cowboy & I had some fun. We went around the barrels, through the 'L', around tires, across the planks, walked on the boards, etc. At first Cowboy was saying he didn't like Fancy anymore because she is mean to Trigger. Then Cowboy is telling me he wants to trade horses with me because Fancy is trained more than Trigger. I told him that Trigger has more experience being ridden and Fancy has more experience playing around my horsey toys and in time Trigger will understand the games. Once they got going, they both began to have fun.

Horsey Kisses and a Good Night hug from Cowboy C & Trigger and Frances & Fancy ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“Lord, You make me as honest as the horse I ride.” (unknown)

The day I met Fancy:
March 9, 2009,8am: found classified add for 10 month TWH. That evening, we traveled to a VA farm. The owner pointed Fancy out, my heart immediately fell in love with this untouched filly. I saw a beautiful future in this long legged, woolly, running like crazy, with her big round bulging belly, filly. The drive from NC to VA was not in vain. The owner and his sons drove all horses into the barn and then ran them out, except one, Fancy. They got the halter on her and the fight was on. After finally reaching the trailer, it took forever to get her in the trailer. The guys had to lift her up and push her in. Ok that done, the sun had parted with us and we were on our way home.
We stopped at the convenience store and I looked in to check on what I planned to be my new best pal. She was not happy, but doing fine.
In the dark of the night, Fancy would not back out of the trailer. She actually decided she would rather lay down in the floor of the trailer rather than do anything we wanted her to do. We had already moved the partition to the side of the trailer to give her space, but we had to work around the center bar in between the back doors. Fancy would not get up for nothing in the world. I wanted to leave her there for the night, but feared she would hurt herself on the partition or something when she did get up. We carefully pulled her out without hurting her. I put her in a stall for the night so I would not fear her getting hurt because she did not know her surroundings. I did not sleep all that night!
Each day there after, I would sit in her presence for a while and when she showed signs of relaxing, I went in to catch her. She was tricky, but so was I. LOL. She slowly learned and gave me her trust.
Each day with Fancy is as exciting as the very first.
