How We Met

Well Glamour and I met on this farm and rode for a couple of hours when it was only going to be 30 min. ! We were going to take her home but she wasn't trailered since she was 4 months old and we couldn't get her to budge even with 4 men pushing, 2 women pulling and me coaxing. We even had a rope around her butt trying to pull her in! So they said that they would trailer train her and we could pick her up in one week. So a few days after we got home we got a call saying that during trailer training, she reared up and cut her head and knee open. We took her home and she got immediate medical attention. At one point the vet didn't know if she could ever be able to go above a walk, she is now galloping around and is healed from all 4 of her injuryies she had 2 more that were later on, a minor back injury, and a cut were the vet had to cut off some skin. It was on her back leg and she cut that area before on farm equipment when she was little but this time we had to put 5 new bandages on the same wound every day for 4 months! She had to stay in a stall that long and she didn't like that but that healed fine. My point is that even though she went through all of that trauma which was very scary, she still trusts in me and she will trust anyone who takes the time to truly listen and understand her, and anyone who does that will truly be her best friend and never be forgotten..

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

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 :~)

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!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, HAPPY BIRTHDAY FANCY:
“When it comes to life's adventures, never pull back on the reins!” (anonymous)

Here is a Happy Birthday vote for my Fancy. And wasn't it a great day for the Kentucky Derby!!!!!!!!

FANCY NEIGHS THANKS FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES!!!

Early this morning Cowboy and I attended a horse show class. Learned a lot and had a wonderful time!

After lunch Buttercup & my brother came over & went for a stroll with Cowboy and Trigg. I walked beside Cowboy & Trigg during their ride. We all had to wait under the carwash till the rain stopped. Buttercup is doing much better! She doesn't seem to give her heart away to just anyone. She is a sweet girl once she accepts you. She is finally BEGINNING to accept my brother. She is beginning to keep those ears up and happy.
I seem to be quite the little instigator here. I had to insist they try all kind of things. It was FUN!!! I had them going between swings, under picnic shelters, going up steps, going up and down small hills and concrete walls. My brother seemed to be amused. Little Cowboy was just having fun. LOL. There was a lot of laughing!!!

Fancy had and easy day today. All she had to do was look pretty and be sweet, she done an excellent job at that. LOL!

Don't' forget to visit profile page #232390 the Calendar of Agendas page each day to see who is running for HOTD and HOTM so you can get your votes in :~)

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 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!!!

Please bear with me. Trying to get the word out to those who don't know. Thanks.................... ........................Who was Pixie Dust? She was a 21 year old Shetland pony from Bloomsfield Hills, Mi.. Pixie's been a HC club member for over 3 years and 7 months. She belonged to our dear friend, Joanna Wicke. Joanna kept her at a farm where she was used for educational programs and pony rides at birthday parties. When Joanna passed away last September, Pixie followed her to Heaven 5 months later. If you are supporting Pixie Dust's May HOTM run, please visit her page (#101958) and leave a vote. Thanks so much..... Hugs and a vote.

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.

PLEASE READ, CORRECTION TO PREVIOUS BLOG: I made an error in dates listed in my blog. I also somehow accidentally lost Joanna's first name in some of my blogs.

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.

Enjoy a Blessed Easter season

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:
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.

“To live anywhere in the world today and be against equality because of race or color is like living in Alaska and being against snow.” (William Faulkner)

Fancy Queen of Heart Month is blowing a heart vote in your direction this beautiful Monday morning.

We thank Joey, Ginger, and Angel Betsy for suggesting us doing the Black History blogs this past few weeks. I enjoyed this project, it was fun to share some of my most favorite horsey characters with you guys. I appreciate the comments and responses we received.

'C' & I trailered Trigger home Saturday morning. 'C' led Trigger to the trailer, however once Trigg saw that he was leaving he pitched a fit for King Kong. King Kong was so busy eating grass, he had no cares for Trigger's plight. Once loaded Trigger was just fine. He didn't like the idea of a bath, but it was fun cleaning him up. After his baths we take him walking and let him graze while he dries.
Sunday evening, Trigger and Fancy were turned out together for the first time. To my surprise, Fancy is not even mean to Trigger, not at all. She lets him walk anywhere he wants to, lets him eat her hay and she even eats with him. However, she does stay in between Trigger and I. I was patting Fancy on the side of her neck and Trigger wanted a pat to. He walked towards me and Fancy ran him off. He looked so pitiful. I think after a while she will allow him to come to me too, because Trigger is the very first animal in our yard that Fancy is not very mean to. I wonder if she is nice to him because she remembers him from last summer when we visited the farm, he visited us, and we went riding together.
I was very tired Sunday night. I did get my profile photos changed, then I was off to bed.

Hope you enjoyed a beautiful weekend. Did you do anything fun?
Now, YOU enjoy this Marvelous Monday!

Willie Simms, born 1/16/1870, near Augusta, Georgia, U.S.—died 2/26/1927, Asbury, New Jersey), 1 of only 2 African American jockeys (the other is Isaac Burns Murphy) 2 have been elected 2 the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, New York.
Simms began racing in 1887 & became the most successful rider 2 adopt the short stirrup since the antebellum slave & rider Abe Hawkins. The short stirrup lifts the rider over the horse’s withers, allowing the animal better balance. In 1895 Simms became the 1st American jockey 2 win in England, where sportswriters referred 2 him as a “monkey on a stick.” The short stirrup earned more esteem after the white American jockey Tod Sloan used it 2 win English races in 1897, & it came to be known as the “American seat.”
Simms won the Belmont Stakes in 1893 & 1894, the Kentucky Derby in 1896 & 1898, & the Preakness Stakes in 1898; he is the only African American 2 have won all of the Triple Crown classics. Simms was the leading American jockey (on the basis of number of wins) in 1893 & 1894. He retired in 1901 with 1 of the best lifetime winning percentages in the sport, 24.8.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Celebrate BlackHistory Month:
Fancy is leaving a vote & the story of a man who became famous for his contribution to a rodeo favorite known as bulldogging. Please enjoy reading our Saturday blog ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS,Black Cowboys!:
Images of black cowboys are scarce in popular culture, giving the false impression that people of color were not among the men and women who settled the West. By the end of huge cattle drives of cowboy legend, at least 5,000 black men had worked as cowboys. Historians estimate an average crew included two or three black cowboys.

William (Will, Bill) Pickett was a legendary cowboy from Taylor, Texas of black, white, and Indian descent, born December 5, 1870. In March 1932, Pickett tripped while roping a stallion and fell under the horse, which kicked him in the head. For 11 days he clung to life with a fractured skull. April 2, 1932, he died in a hospital in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Bill Pickett was inducted into the Rodeo Hall of Fame, Oklahoma City, in 1971, the first black rodeo athlete to be so honored. At the Cowboy Hall of Fame, these words are inscribed to Pickett's memory:
Like many men in the old time West
On any job he did his best
He left a blank that's hard to fill
For there will never be another Bill.

He was also honored in 1994 by The United States Post Office, who issued a postage stamp honoring Pickett as part of its "Legends of the West" series. There is also the Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo held each year since 1984 in his honor.

Bill noticed the bulldogs capture stray steers by biting them on the lip and he thought why couldn't he do that. Pickett's method for bulldogging was biting a cow on the lip and then falling backwards. His method eventually lost popularity as the sport changed into steer wrestling that is practiced in rodeos today.
Riding his horse, Spradley, Pickett came alongside a Longhorn steer, dropped to the steer's head, twisted its head toward the sky, and bit its upper lip to get full control. That's how Pickett's technique got the name "bulldogging." As the event became popular among rodeo cowboys, the lip biting became less popular until it disappeared from steer wrestling. Bill Pickett, however, became an immortal rodeo cowboy, and his fame has grown since his death.
Bill Pickett became known for his tricks and stunts at local country fairs. In 1905, Pickett joined the 101 Ranch Wild West Show that featured the likes of Buffalo Bill, Cowboy Bill Watts, Will Rogers, Tom Mix, Bee Ho Gray, and Zach and Lucille Mulhall.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Happy Valentines:
“Many are the stars I see, but in my eye no star like thee” (English saying)

Here is your Sunday heart vote from my SweetHeart Fancy and Trigg.
My son 'C', wants me to let everyone know he appreciates your votes and he loves reading the comments. He says "Thank You ♥"

Fancy,"She says she loves me."
Frances,"My horse keeps me honest."

What a cold & windy day in NC! I did spend a bit of time today cleaning Fancy's corral. I was on my way into the shed and Fancy nickered to me. I know the look, she wants time out. I actually promised her I would give her time out when I finished putting my yard tools away. The wind was blowing so hard when I came out of the shed that I forgot my promise to Fancy & was about to lock the shed door when Fancy nickered to me. She was standing at the gate patiently waiting for her time out. I told her Ok, you keep me honest! And back into the shed I went to fetch her halter and lead. On the way I was thinking to myself, I talk to this horse too much, she knows what I am telling her. I gotta stop talking soo much. LOL! I do love my sweet horse ♥

'C' had to visit his Trigger today. When we got there Trigg was across the creek. We called to him and he actually ran over. I think he thought it was supper time. 'C' gave Trigg a nice juicy apple. Trigg got himself a new nickname today. 'C' calls him Tigger now.

The rains held back and the winds were harsh, it was too cold to ride, but we had lovely weather this weekend.

How did your weekend go?
Love Fancy Queen of Hearts ♥ & Frances

Fancy leaves a rainy Saturday vote.
If you received a blog from us Friday, I forgot to add in our blog that I did leave your Friday vote.

Friday after school we went to visit Trigg. He does not know us as his people right now. My son, C, had to offer him pulled grass so I could catch him. We got him out and groomed him. He sure is dirty for such a small horse. Trigg kept worrying about where King Kong was. C was having the time of his life. All that matters to him, is his new horsey.

You have a lovely weekend!
Love Fancy & Frances

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS IN HONOR OF RUTH ANN'S NAVAJO:
“My horses' feet are as swift as rolling thunder. He carries me away from all my fears. And when the world threatens to fall asunder, His mane is there to wipe away my tears.” (unknown)

“What we have once enjoyed we can never lose.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.” (Helen Keller)

Thank You Joyce and Sadie for letting us know about the loss of Angel Navajo #119353. Please visit Navajo's page, he was Ruth Ann's first horse, he was a sweet & gentle companion to her.

My little C. read his blogs last night and he went to bed with the biggest smile on his little face as he thought of his Trigger. He saw his page this morning before school, and he asked me to tell everyone Happy Valentines and Thanks for HOTD. He is very excited to spend some time with Trigger. He wanted to visit the farm Thursday after school but it was not a good time. I plan to take him to the farm today after school.

Love Fancy and Frances

Q: What happens if you eat the Christmas Decorations? A: you get tinsel-itus!

Fancy is finally back on HC with a vote for you. We also could not get back onto HC and then Wednesday I had to get the computer worked on because of a virus. All is well now with computing.

It is muddy here, I would like some dry ground under my feet:)
I wish Fancy could share in all the Christmas activities. My family thinks I am crazy, and I know that is not possible, LOL. My son and I watched Scrooge last night before. I love Christmas movies that I remember watching when I was a kid. I think my favorite has to be A Charlie Brown Christmas. Do you have a favorite Christmas movie?
Have fun with your Holiday activities!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
