Bradford Strings

About Me

Active within 868 Days

I am from Wauneta, NE and I've been a Club Horse member for 5 years, 9 months and 18 days

Nicknames: Bradford, Big Giant Horse (what I called him before I knew his name), Buford, Trigger (as in easy, Trigger)

Age: 20 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Height: 14, 3 1/2 hands (maybe...seems a little short, really-he's big and very muscled)

Color: Bay.

Type of Riding: Western; he was a rodeo horse previously (heading and tie-down). We trail/pasture ride a lot.

My Horse's Achievements: He has gotten used to riding in the pasture/on trails after a career spent mostly in the arena. And he listens better and is more patient since I bought him.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Grain.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat, ride the pastures, lope. And he prefers to roll uphill, apparently.

Pet Peeves: Birds that fly up suddenly; having to stand still when he'd rather be running!

How We Met

Bradford was owned by the nephew of the owner of the barn where I'd been riding/helping out, and he'd tried to sell him. Another guy took him on a "30 day trial" and returned him underweight and thirsty (he drank three 5-gallon buckets of water right away). I hadn't ridden Bradford before but gave him a try and really liked him, and bought him a week later. I've wanted a horse of my own for as long as I can remember, and finally having Bradford is a dream come true..

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart. She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow it up again fairer and stronger. She calls her family together within her inmost home to prepare them for being scattered abroad upon the face of the earth." (Hugh Macmillan, "Rejuvenescence," The Ministry of Nature, 1871)

HI, I was in contact with Angel Doobie's (#211407) owner today and she would like to share her feelings about Angel Doobie with you. This is what she said: "
Besides being the best horse in the world. Let's see he had a uniqueness about him in that I think that I found and not his owner. Also he was super fun to ride. He had this huge canter stride that most people probably would not have been able to sit too but I could. He was just one of those horses that you could drop the lead and he wouldn't move. As a matter of fact I forgot something in my car one day. I of course had him on lead, I didn't know that I had let the lead go until I shut the door and looked down. I saw that the lead was completely on the ground."

I love my Fancy and I love to adore the beauty in all horses. To own or lease a horse so sweet as Angel Doobie is a dream come true. There are many of us here of HC that are living that dream right now!

Still rainy here in NC. We are expecting rains for several days. It is not so bad. But sun shine is so much better ♥

I have been pondering upon a question of my own righteousness. LOL! I grant you the truth I am no different from the lowliest, I have my moments, I don't always make the right choices. I guess my difference would be I believe in God's forgiveness through Jesus Christ. That makes this time of year all the more special.

Love and a peaceful night to you ♥

Thursday evening after cleaning up the corral, I enjoyed a soothing time with Fancy. Fancy noticed her halter in my hand when I came out of the building and she came right to the gate. I took her out for grass and did some desensitizing with different size and color plastic jugs I had tied together. Then I asked her to walk across a huge cardboard box that had been rained on.
We went into the corral for some showmanship and halter practice. It has been several weeks since I asked Fancy to stand or park out. She was with me on everything that I asked her to. THEN, at the end of our practice, my little Fancy parked herself out. I wish I had someone there to video this! Fancy stretched her front legs farther than ever. And I didn't even ask her! I mean she really stretched so far that her back near hoof came off the ground a little. I did not even ask her to park out and she was letting me know that she was willing and wanted to give me her best try. I can not even find words for how special she made feel. Wow. That really blew me away.
Then Cowboy came outside. Cowboy wants to show Fancy in the youth halter class at the fair. So I tried to show him what to do and let him try. Don't know if he will be ready by fair time in September. When sunny skies return to Carolina, I plan to see if Cowboy can work with Trigger for the halter class. They already work very well together. But we don't know if Trigger knows what to do. I do not know if I can teach both of them in a short amount of time.
After Cowboy worked with Fancy, I let Fancy eat some grass in the back yard. I have never had a horse so sweet as my Fancy.
Has your horse ever blew you away by doing something extra sweet?

Our horseshow has been rescheduled due to expected rains coming in Saturday. That gives us more time to practice.

Have a nice weekend.

Here is a wintery vote for you! It is getting cold in NC!
A few months ago I began a part time job. Well, that is more like full time now. As you have noticed my irregularity on HC, I am pressed for time and energy. Lately, I have fallen asleep at the computer and I don't know how I have not fallen out of this chair. LOL! When I am mentally and physically able, I will leave a vote for each of your profile pages. There may be several times that I will only vote for one page. If you have a preference as to which page I leave the main vote on, please let me know and I will try to do that for you.

Trying to do many things is wearing me down. There have been so many things that have crossed my mind that I wanted to mention or ask you about, but by the time I get to my blog, I can not remember those things. I am going to try and write things down before I forget them.

No ride today, it was very chilly and windy :(

Does anyone remember reading last month, about a nationwide Ride to Remember Veterans during Veteran's Day weekend, Nov. 10-11, 2012? How would you guys like to have our own HorseChannel ride in honor of Veteran's Day? We can chose one day that we all will ride on, even if it is only for a few minutes or just to sit on the horse during the Veteran's holiday. Then we could share our pics from that day and share our story of the day. If you agree would Sunday November the 11 be ok for our ride date?

November is a time of thanks. Thanks should be part of our every day lives all year long. Let us be thankful for our friends and loved ones. Let us be kind one to another. Cruelty has no place among true friends.


HAVE A PEACEFUL NIGHT ✞

Hi! Did you have a busy, fun weekend? What have you been up to?

I have been on the move, but I enjoyed it! Saturday morning, Fancy participated in her first parade! It was a really big homecoming parade, with lots of tight crowds and loud bands! Fancy was excited for the first 15 to 20 minutes, but after that she was very relaxed and was not bothered by bouncing children on the sidelines. In past years, I have ridden my previous horses in this parade, but I never got to participate in the tradition of riding around the football field before the game. I could not get my past horses onto the football field because they were afraid. Well yesterday, I did for the first time, ride around the football field, with my Fancy! Fancy even took the lead and she did that running walk at least half way around! It was so much fun! I will never forget the first time I got to ride around the football field!!!!! Oh, and to boot, the home team won their game!!!!!! I would like to believe Fancy gave them good luck when she went around the field. LOL!
Half way through the day all I could think of was how this has to be my best day ever with Fancy. And then I think to myself, I have had so many days that I thought were my best day ever with Fancy! Saturday morning, I lost my keys on the way out of town. The keys fell off the side of the trailer or the truck. But I found them completely mangled on the side of a busy street after 6 hours of being run over in heavy traffic. Even though I had the lost key problem, I still had that feeling of this being the best day ever!

Saturday night, our family attended our horseshow end of year banquet. This was our first time attending and I had no idea what to expect. So, I did not take my camera and I was very surprised to see Little Cowboy & Trigger won a good bit of awards. Little Cowboy was so excited to share the awards with Trigger, they used their new snaffle bit and new grooming kit tonight. He is going to save his new blanket for next years show season. Little Cowboy rode until dark, and I did get a few pictures tonight before it got too dark.

Have a beautiful Autumn day ✞

Fancy and Trigger are galloping by with a evening vote for you friend.

I spent Thursday and Friday with Fancy. She was ready in case I decided to take her to the show. Friday after school Little Cowboy and Trigger practiced for some events . We had fun because Fancy and I had to show them what to do. I think it will be fun when I do get to compete with Fancy. We might not win, because she is not very fast. But she is certainly fun :)
The show was rescheduled from Saturday to Sunday morning. Since this was the last fun show this year, we did attend. Little Cowboy entered quite a few events he had never tried before. Every one had fun watching him try new things. The crowd was in an uproar in laughter. I didn't get the funny stuff on video cause all the funny things happened after I stopped videoing. The bareback class was the funniest. He slid all the way onto Trigger's side and pulled himself back up with a hand full of mane. There were some cute little girls in the bareback too. The smallest one fell off and her sister came to her aide. It was so cute seeing this very small girl help her smaller sister back onto her horse after making sure she was ok of course.
We all had a grand time at this event. Little Cowboy entered 10 events this show and he placed 1st, 3rd, or 4th in all events except one. The only event he did not place in was the egg and spoon race. I guess that is my fault for lettin him practice with an ice cream scoop and a plastic egg. LOL Next time we practice with a plastic spoon and a real egg. LOL! There is quite a difference there.
I guess that is enough about that.

How was your weekend? Hope it was beautiful :)

Little Cowboy and Trigger did have a wonderful day. After church Little Cowboy let Trigger graze in the back yard before a last ride of summer break from school. They walked a few blocks up and shared their last ride with little girls and boys up the street. I think there were about 15 children k to 5th grade in age. This was a great way to end their break! They were very happy. I see my Little Cowboy loves to share his horsey and see the children so happy. I am trying to teach him that when God blesses you, it is good to should share that blessing with others.


Please pray for Andrea's (with Sweet Pea #192859) grandpa, he has a health issue.

Rest well & be ready for an exciting week back to school!

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.

Show update: Thursday Cowboy practiced for some events & carrying the flag on Trigger. Friday Fancy & Trigger visited the farrier. We cleaned tack & loaded the trailer Friday evening.
Now for the excitement! Saturday morning, I gave Trigger a bath. I can not clean him up the day before because he will roll extra hard to collect much dirt as he can. I got as much water off him as I could & loaded him in the trailer before he could get dirty. I was standing at the small door latching his halter, something poked out by my feet, I saw a fluffy red-ringed raccoon looking tail swish by my feet & disappear under the trailer. It was a FOX! I fastened the halter & went into the house. The fox stayed under the trailer. My BB gun is very weak. You can see the BB's fall to the ground when you shot it. We wanted the fox to leave, so we got the BB gun after it & it did not move. Several minutes later we saw it go under the drain pipe at the end of our driveway. I was a bit shaky after I realized I had been that close to the fox.
We left a bit later than expected. Fancy stood at the gate, looked square at my face & nickered. I felt like dirt to leave her. As we left she ran back & forth & whinnied loudly. I promised I would make it up to her.

We arrived in time for Cowboy & Trigger to warm up 30 minutes before the show. There were sheep & bulls around the arena this time. Last time there were only bulls. Trigger was not bothered by the bulls, but he did not cotton to the sheep. Cowboy & one of the adult men rode their horses up to the sheep & petted them through the fence. Cowboy dismounted & walked Trigger up to them first, then he rode him up to the sheep. Very smart Cowboy. After that Trigger was ok with the sheep.
Cowboy was galloping with a teen girl he met & he yelled whoa to Trigger & her horse stopped They both got a kick out of that.

Friday we picked up a rain poncho for the just in case. It came in handy as several rain showers passed through during the show.
Cowboy & Trigger won 1st place in Western Walk & Jog 12 & under, 2nd place in Youth Western Go As You Please 12 & under, 1st place in Youth Western Pleasure 12 & under, & 1st place in Youth Catalog Race 12 & under. They also entered the flag race, but his flag fell out of the sand at the very end.
At the end of the show Cowboy took his helmet off and put it on Trigger. I don't know if he thought Trigger needed it or what he was thinking. LOL.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, for our August HOTM Daisy & Levy:

He has known joy and violence. Felt the warmth of children and the cruelty of abuse. He has nearly died saving lives and merely been killed by a drunken act. He has known the finery of grand estates and the filth of stinking slums. He has survived fire and flood, starvation and torment.
And nothing could break his spirit-or his great love.
This is HIS life.
He is called the horse
(Anna Sewell)

When I whistle Fancy comes to me & Trigger looks at her like he is thinking, 'Stay away from the people, you poor idiot! Run, Run!' We got them haltered and off we went. Fancy and Trigger enjoyed a walk through the neighborhood, pats and whispers from the kids, & tasty grass. We returned home & put both horses in the corral. Trigger looked totally confused. Trigger thinks anything to do with people, means WORK. I hope he is learning that people are cool to hang out with too.

Did any one honor their dad with a father's day ride?
My husband had to work, so Sunday evening Cowboy & I took a ride through the woods & around the neighborhood. On the way home our neighbor was having a party so Cowboy and I rode home & attached the buddy seat to Fancy's saddle and back we went to ride children at the party. There was lots of giggling and squealing going on. Cowboy asked the girls which horse they liked best and the answer was Fancy. Cowboy told them that was because they had not ridden his horse.
We returned home & worked on riding both horses around the house and outbuilding in different directions to keep them tuned into the fact that they will be leaving one another on occasions. That was a good lesson.
Cowboy has tapped into a hidden talent in Trigger. He had Trigger running beside him and halt, just like in the shows. This little horse has some training under his belt. I sure am pleased with Trigger so far. And Little Cowboy is very happy with his little old horsey.


FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Cowboy Definitions:

2. Brash - Brittle.
3. Breachy - A term applied to unruly oxen.

6. Brisk Up - To come up with life and speed, take an erect or bold attitude.
7. Broke in Two - A horse bucking.
8. Bronc Buster - A cowboy who could tame wild horses. Contrary to popular thinking, not all cowboys could ride just any horse, though most could ride any broken mount. But the bronc buster, also called a "bonc peeler" and a "bronc breaker," was a breed apart. These men, with a special type of "horse sense" earned not only the esteem of the other cowboys, but usually better wages.
9. Broken Wind - A lung infection in horses.
10. Broomtail - A long, bushy-tailed range mare, usually unbroken. Also called a "broomie."

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! Fancy and I hope you have enjoyed a beautiful Father's Day!

I could not wait to tell you about our newest adventure. But when I got home, I was so tired and my rear was so tender from sitting all day. I just wanted to go to bed. So now I can tell you about Friday's ride at Uwharrie National Park, our longest ride ever! Fancy did notice that we were yet again in a new place. But she was very calm, only looking around and checking out the grazing quality, which she approved. The farm was such a comfy place, I could stay there forever.
As we began our ride, all the horses were slightly excited. Once on the trial it was all natural forest, and I mean natural. I guess all the past storms and wet conditions caused many trees to fall. There were veery rocky areas. You would be surprised at the number of snapping turtles in one area of the river & all sizes! When they hear you coming, they plop into the water from their lazy sunning on logs and rocks. In a dense part of the forest, I looked to my right and saw 3 to 4 deer leaping so quietly and elegantly through the trees.
Each horse took turns leading, middle, last. We did canter in places. There were many streams for splashing water on hot bellies & quenching thirst.
At lunch, one horse has to share his owner's grilled cheese sandwich. I thought that was funny. At every break, they get carrots, store bought horse treats, and sometimes apples. I never seen so many treats. LOL! At first Fancy didn't know about the carrots, or it was the fact that a stranger was giving them to her. But it did not take long before she was sharing her good nature with everyone. I especially love the river in places. My profile photo on Sunday, Father's day was taken at a place where grass grows in the middle of the river like on a small island. At one place along the river the sounds of running water would put you to sleep if you sat still long enough.

We have definitely been busy here. Little Cowboy is out of school now and he is ready to ride.

I guess where ever Trigger lived in the past was not a happy place, because Friday when Triggger saw the children, he ran away. But Cowboy & I caught him. He never acted up one bit after we caught him. He just didn't want to get into it to begin with. LOL.
Fancy on the other hand, seems to love all the attention she gets from the children. I wish she would tell Trigger that people can be kind.

Saturday's trip to Stone Mountain St Park was wonderful! The first thing we saw when we arrived was a black snake sun bathing in the road. To my liking, we did not see anymore of his kind. I loved the wooden bridges there. There were boulders long and wide as a queen size bed, maybe bigger. We came upon a pretty little doe standing all alone. I was surprised Fancy only looked at her and kept walking. The springs were clear and pretty until Fancy stirred the water with her pawing and taught the other horses to do the same :)

Sunday evening we rode around the neighborhood. Little Cowboy especially loved when his older brother decided to take a ride with him. My older son rode Fancy. He did not think she would listen to him, but she gave him no trouble.

Hope you enjoyed a great weekend also, stop by to tell us about it!

I have to clean up while Fancy & Trigger eat grain to keep Fancy from raiding Trigger's bucket. At first he would run, but soon he learned that I am shooing Fancy away. Now, when Fancy comes towards his grain, he will look at me pitifully. I wish you could see his funny pitiful face. It is so funny.
Trigger sure has come around in body condition. He looks like a different horse now. All shiny and finally gaining weight.

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.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Love works miracles:
I am leaving this Tuesday vote from my Fancy.

Love goes a long way! Please read these messages of appreciation to us from Joanna and Pixie Dust family ♥

May 4, 2012 from Joanna's sister
Frances,
Thank you so much for everything you have done, and for the incredibly touching emails and postings. My parents and I are just so deeply touched, and I just really can't even put our appreciation in words. Not only were you an amazing friend to Joanna, you've been an amazing supporter of my parents and me. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
(And sorry for not always responding sooner to your messages; between work and kids and horses, I don't get on facebook as often as I would like).

May 7, 2012 from Joanna's sister
Hi again Frances - Just wanted to share a message from my mom when she forwarded some of your very sweet messages to our family,
An update on this message is that Pixie Dust WON Horse of the Month honors because Frances and her friends (unknown to us) rallied over 8000 votes on the Horse Channel for a picture of Pixie. We are so touched that Joanna's friends would go to so much effort to honor her (and Pixie). And Frances' words are beautiful. Brian and I do not do Facebook, but perhaps some of you knew about this and helped with it. Thank you. We are humbled that Joanna is being remembered in this way.

“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 :~)

“It is not enough for a man to learn how to ride; he must learn how to fall” (Mexican Proverb)

VOTED :~)
I was watching Fancy graze yesterday and I thought about one of my previous horses. The horse would pull against every thing you tied it to. It pulled a tractor, a huge farm trailer, and other things. I learned many lessons about horse tying during my ownership of this horse. LOL. I learned to tie high and not tooo long. This made me wonder just how much pressure can be put on those small halter rings that we clip our lead ropes to before they give in and break. I have not seen one break or split so far. But I have seen one bend a little. Have you ever seen one break or split?

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

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!!!

Good Wednesday to you! Today's showers should make the flowers bloom nicely! I guess it is just natural because the rain makes the flowers grow fuller & look soo much better!

When the sun takes over the skies again, I must get a photo of my Fancy and Trigg together in peace. Fancy finally let Trigg hang out with her without being mean to him. LOL. My family calls Fancy 'The Warden'= Trigg is her little prisoner and he must have her permission to do any thing. I think Fancy treats Trigg like a nerdy, pesky, little brother that she really likes, but she thinks she is too cool for him. LOL.

So many horsey activities going on I can't take it all in. I am so excited, but it looks like many days of rain, even through the weekend!!!!!!!!!!! What will I do!!!!!!!!

Come rain or shine in your neighborhood, You have a beautiful day :~)
Love From our herd to yours♥

Come visit me, FANCY Walk N That Way & Fancy's 2012 HC Members Veterans Day Trail Ride!.
