Let us remember our HC angels as we end this year. It has been extremely tough to lose HC pals, both human and equine. Life is short, loss is permanent. I pray we become better people each day.

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!

Fancy has stopped by with a good night vote for you.

Saturday I spent with Fancy & what a peaceful time it was. Saturday night we went skating, I guess that will be a part of our routine now, horse activities and then roller skating. Yet again, with these wheels strapped to my feet, I did not fall down, I even speed up a bit! That is a huge accomplishment for me!

Today was a very pleasant NC day. It was a little cool, but comfy. We spent Sunday evening with Trigger and my brother. My son and my niece had fun riding Trigger. He is a very sweet horse.
I see our horses as being very human like in nature. Every day we provide their needs and give them extra. Sometimes our horses don't listen to us and they do not care for what we want. I see how our Lord feels when we chose not to do as he instructs us. Even when we are not on our best behavior he still loves us and provides our needs. And we love our horses just the same. We love them the day they behave perfectly and the day when they frustrate us. How about that. Horses are just like us.
I hope you have enjoyed a blessed weekend with family and friends, Mostly horses! Don't hesitate to stop by and tell us how your weekend went?

I hope & pray no one was harmed in the earthquake & each family is safe & in good spirits.

Thanks for voting for Fancy & her herd and ♥ to Shadowfax and Pippin for Fancy's #19,000 vote!!!

I meet Deb & Lady Jane (profile #189648 ), and company! What a wonderful group of friends to make! I was so excited I totally exhausted myself! It was awesome to see the beautiful horses & riders on the beach! They actually had the ACTHA ride along the shoreline!!! How awesome is that? We sat at the campsite enjoying stories and getting acquainted while my son helped Hollie tend to the horses. He enjoyed that most of all. Deb & Lady Jane's group left out for a night stroll along the beach as we were leaving for home. With each breath I longed to ride my Fancy Walk N That Way along the beach. I could not wait to get home to share this with Fancy.

Aimee & Fanny (profile #78967) invited us to enjoy a trail ride with them. This was Fancy's very first trail ride with a group. There were about 30-40 horses on the ride and 2 wagons. My brother & King Kong (profile #218728) accompanied us. We had a wonderful time. Fancy received several compliments on her behavior and some folks thought she was very pretty. They asked me who broke that horse for you? LOL!!!! Me, LOL! God!!! They said Fancy was very patient because she listened to me when I talk to her. I didn't think anything of it because to me that was normal. Fancy is my good girl most of the time and sometimes she is my bad girl. LOL! On one break, Aimee rode Fancy around. I had to tell Fancy to stop following me and listen to Aimee. Aimee enjoyed riding Fancy around in the field. I had planned not to run my little horse, BUT on the return trip, Aimee & Fanny and my brother & King Kong were in the wind. So we did get into a smooth canter. I had forgotten what a canter feels like. Oh! It was wonderful! I was very tired after the ride, but I didn't want it to end.
I hated leaving all the horsey activities but I had another date, one with my son. I promised him I would roller skate with him. I find it quite simple to stay upright upon 4 horse's feet, but if you put me on wheels I am a disaster. I took a skating lesson last week, so now I test my skills. My skills are not good, but for the very first time, I did not fall down once Saturday night. Feels good to stay off the floor. LOL.

Then Sunday was the perfect day to give thanks for all the wonderful friends I have made and all the blessings I share.
You guys are like family, I had so much fun, but I still missed you!!!
I will read all of my blogs within a few days. I look forward to reading about what you have been up to while I was away.
I hope your weekend was beautiful and blessed!!!

At 6:30pm I got home and logged in to HC to find blogs informing me we have lost yet another precious friend. We are sad for Marion. We have enjoyed reading about HT in his HOTM run blogs. Each horse here deserves HOTD and HOTM. Please vote for HT diligently, so he can win November HOTM.

Thanks for all the sweet comments for my son with Scotty (and his various other mounts). This child has a natural love for horses (and other animals too). He gets tickled when I tell him about comments you leave for him. Every now and then he reads them his self. But he is a bit too wiggly to sit here long. LOL.
I love seeing children with horses! So you know I enjoy watching him with Scotty. It has made him so happy to have Scotty here. He is always talking to and petting on Scotty. Scotty has an expression that says he enjoys my son and loves the attention. Scotty is such a sweet natured horse:~)

If you have a sweet natured horse and a cute kid with a special bond, please tell us about them in your blog. I know my son would love to hear about them!

Fancy is leaving a Peaceful, loving, Sunday nights vote.

My Fancy is not spending every waking hour in Scotty's face now. She is eating again and wondering around as normal. She even stands all the way across the corral away from Scotty now.
Fancy and I had our first ride out with more than one horse today. What a ride it was. Fancy was very excited! She had to be first every moment and she left everyone behind with out any hesitation or care. King Kong, Trigger, and one of my brother's friends came to our house and we rode out for a while. Fancy stopped to urinate beside the road and the guys kept going. When she completed her business, she hopped up and just pitched a fit because she was not in front anymore. I had to get onto her for a bit. But, when were back in first place she was happy again. King Kong was on his best behavior today and my brother was soooo happy with him. All the horses were very good today. Except that one indecent when Fancy got upset for not being in the lead.
After Fancy and I returned, my son rode Scotty bareback and groomed him. Scotty seems to be very happy with my son handling him. My son is very happy too. I will post some new photos of Scotty and my son soon.

Thanks for voting Scotty HOTD, his owner is visiting today and he will get treats & lots of attention today. Scotty has done many things. 3 years ago he was a kids horse. Since then he has participated in some parades and Buffalo Soldiers presentations. Every one seems to like him very much.
Fancy seems to like Scotty too much. The first evening with Scotty, I was not very happy! Fancy did not want to come to me and I thought Fancy was going to starve for not eating. Each day she gets closer to her normal self again. The only thing now, Fancy seems to be a little skiddish, which is not normal for my girl. I have taken her out on walks each day that Scotty has been here. I rode Fancy around the block yesterday and she was very good, but a little hyper to go. I stopped and took her bridle off to let her graze for a while too.
I have been dealing with horses for almost 20 years with plenty of horses and never had my toe stepped on. Well, guess what? Dog gone if Scotty didn't step on the tip of my boot Friday evening. I believe he was very aware of it too! Gonna work on his ground manners:~)
Any riding going on this weekend for you? If I get the opportunity, I better take it!

How was your weekend? We enjoyed a nice cool Carolina weekend here. Fancy's hooves had grown out and were beginning to chip, so I decided to try my hand at rasping. I had the tools for over a year, but I was afraid to try. I looked up how to trim hooves on youtube and I did it! I did as little as possible since it was my first time. Made my back hurt, but no more chipping hooves for now. I was very glad they didn't need to be trimmed, only shaped up. I tell you if you ever try it, you will appreciate a farrier with a strong back, LOL. Have you ever tried to do a horses hooves? If you have, how did you come out on the job?

“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.” (Edwin Way Teale)

Please view the video tribute in Horse Vidos: PIXIE DUST: IN MEMORY OF JOANNA, which was submitted by Pippin's family (profile #11626) In honor of our friends: Joanna Wicke her horses, Pixie Dust (profile #101958), & Brisco (profile # 140827), and her family.

Fancy is leaving a vote for you this Friday morning.

King Kong was very bad yesterday. King did not want to listen to my brother and my brother's friend wanted to help, so he got on King. While my brother's friend was riding King the horse reared and they fell back. He is ok, only suffered whiplash and soreness. We don't know what got into King. When he reared, there was no bit pressure at all. So he could have moved in any direction and he chose up :(

Fancy was very good. My son has ridden her. He has gotten bored riding in the corral, so we walk around the block and through the car wash. My son loves to ride her. He would like me to turn him lose. But I don't think Fancy or my son are ready for that. Because she is still very young and I know my son does not have experience in case something did frighten her. But so far she has been so wonderful on his rides out. I don't take that for granted and I pray that she remains steady.
What are you up to on the last Friday in September?

Fancy & I love all of our HorseChannel friends and we hope you guys will stop by her page to vote each day in October so Fancy can be your November HOTM.

"If all the world were ours to give, would we give it?"

Fancy and Frances are leaving a vote for your beautiful horse today.
Everything that I did with Fancy Wednesday, I dedicated to Joanna's memory.
When Fancy walked to meet me at the gate, I thought about Pixie and Brisco not being able to see their loved friend meet them at the gate again. As I picked out Fancy's hooves all I could think about was Pixie Dust and Brisco. Wondering if they understand the absence of the constant source of love in their life.
As I worked cleaning Fancy's corral, I thought of my granddad telling me once, "The empty wagon cries the loudest." I asked him, "Granddad, what in the world does that mean?" And he explained to me, if I listen, I will hear that a wagon bearing a full load makes very little to no sound. And the wagon that is empty creeks and squeaks loudly. He explained to me how people are like the wagons. Yesterday I thought of Joanna and I felt like the empty wagon. She never once complained, she was always positive, she loved reading of Fancy's adventures.
After reading her memorial posted on Cross Creek Horses page, I suddenly understood why she loved Dancing With the Stars so much.
This young lady had such an awesome spirit! And we never knew how awesome she really was. But Pixie Dust knew this as she visited Joanna during her illness. What a loving and special little horse. God Bless Pixie Dust, she is truly an Angel on Earth.

Do you wonder what our horse pals think when we visit them or when we leave them? Fancy looks like she is happy to see me coming. As she watches me walk back into the house, she has a very content look upon her little (big) horsey face also. That lets me know she was happy with the time that we had spent together and she knows that I will return to care for her. I bet she does wonder why I live in a separate barn when I could stay outside with her. LOL. What do you think your horse pals think when they see you coming and when you leave?

Fancy's sliding by in the mud to leave you this Tuesday vote. We hope your holiday weekend was most delightful. Did you enjoy any horsey time? We did nothing here this weekend. Now it is raining off and on☁

Lots of friends asked how I began to teach Fancy to lay down. Here is my comment on that.
1. First you teach the horse to let you handle his front feet. You teach them to let you hold that foot up for long as you want to with out taking it back.
2. Rope breaking helps. I mean throwing the rope all around their body, head, and legs till they are in no way fearful or uncomfy with that feel and touch.
3. You need 2 SOFT ropes. Don't tie, but loop one around the horse's front near pastern (ankle area), you will use this to hold the hoof up only, Make sure this rope never gets tight because it may slow or stop blood flow.
4. Second SOFT rope attaches to the halter as usual, except you run it between the front legs to the off side of your horse and across the back to lay on the same side of his body as the leg you are going to lift.
5. Lift the foot using the rope that is around that foot. Hold still until he is o.k. with that. Hold the foot up at the point that it touches the belly. No tighter than necessary and don't tighten as you go.
6. Teach the bow. Grab the rope that is attached to the halter it should lay just behind the withers and pull slowly and softly until he gives with his nose. His head will tip slightly then he is ready for a bow. He should go back and downward until his knee touches the ground. You have to know your horse. Let him up before he gets upset. Just in case he lays all the way down at this point, keep in mind, which ever way his nose tips is the direction his feet will lay. Stay clear of his feet so you don't get kicked.
7. If he lay down from the bow, you want to rub all over him before he gets up and tell him how great he is!
8. If he didn't lay down from the bow on his own, redo the bow and hold in the bow position and he should lay down. You may need to slightly increase the pressure with the rope that is across his withers. But remember to be very gentle. He should lay down. Depending on the horse, it may take a few times to get all the way down.


Look up Ken McNabb on the internet, his method is very gentle.
I also learned that you do not want to ride a horse up from the ground until it is over 5 years old because it's bones are still growing and you can damage it's developing bone structure, which could lead to future problems.
If I confused you, let me know or look it up on the internet. I hope this has helped.

Also if you know something that will help me with this, please leave me a blog about it!

The Horse
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.

I tried the bareback mounting again yesterday. Didn't work out. So I used the tractor tire again. Once mounted, Fancy listened very well. We walked around in the corral and even did some leg yields. It was so much fun!

Happy Birthday to our wonderful and cute friend Pixie Dust♥ We love you little girl♥

Many of you already do this, but I finally got up my nerve to do something different. I rode Fancy bareback for a few minutes. She was very lazy, but that is because we were in the coral. I did not worry for her laziness, because she did not buck me off, which I was very happy for and appreciated :~)
This was the first time in over 10 years that I have ridden bareback. I have never been able to mount without assistance. Can anyone help me to know how to mount without a block or something. I tried to jump up, that did not work. I tried to use her neck. That did not work. How do you do it? What do I need to do?

My son asked his youngest brother to be the ring bearer and the little one thought his brother meant bear and he was so excited to be the ring BEAR. So my son told his little brother, yes you will be the ring BEAR. So, I added a photo of our ring BEAR on Fancy's page.

Fancy is here with your Tuesday vote.
We had a fun ride yesterday evening, I rode Fancy and my son accompanied on his bike. There were a few folks mowing yards with both push mowers and riding mowers. I was surprised. All of them that was close to the front yard, like near the road, they stopped mowing and turned the mower of as we approached them. I was hoping Fancy would get to walk by with the mowers running. I thanked them and told them it was ok, I wanted her to hear and see the running mowers long as they weren't chasing us. LOL! This one lady ran home to stop her dog, which was tied close to the edge of the road, from barking as we passed. I told her to let the dog bark. It is good for Fancy to see and not be afraid. This lady just moved her from Florida where she worked grooming Clydesdale horses. She said they were easily frightened. So she thought my horse would be. We talked for a while and her kids met and petted Fancy. We met another new neighbor from Tennessee, whom said she used to help a friend with horses and ride them. And we visited our old neighbors too.

PEACE STARTS WITH A SMILE;~)

Lovely Carolina day to leave a vote for friends.

We are on our way back into the high temps. I rode Fancy around the neighborhood a few times accompanied by my son on his bicycle. He hasn't ridden Fancy for quite a few days because I am adjusting her to a new bit. It is a mild curb I bought last week. My son is more comfy with the curb bit. He had never used a snaffle until the first time he rode Fancy solo. He had trouble with the snaffle bit and he didn't like it. Fancy is very good with both bits but somehow I like the snaffle a little bit better until she fully understands the curb. I was surprised at how well she was today though.
IF you have experience transitioning a horsey pal from a snaffle to a curb, please share with me. You never know. Something you know could really help. This is my first time making this adjustment. The last horse I trained, I tried starting in the snaffle and he wouldn't take it in his mouth after the first day. So I tired a curb and he took it just fine every time, and we took our time and worked it out all the way. So I never had to make the adjustment. Fancy just goes with anything if I take my time and let her do her thing. Hope she stays that way. LOL
Happy Sunday evening!!!
We love you guys♥

Fancy is munching her way by with a vote from our stormy town. I am hoping that today is our last day of storms for a little while. I don't mine the rain, but we need some sunshine to.
It has been several months now that Fancy has shown a new behavior, that I did not teach her. Whenever she is locked in her stall, after I unlatch her stall gate, she takes her nose and pushes the gate open, then waits for me to enter with her wheelbarrow load of hay. I was very surprised when I saw she was not trying to escape. She just wanted her hay and she was happy. Believe it or not, this seems to help because I don't have to worry for opening the gate. I just roll that wheelbarrow right on in there and empty it. LOL! I wonder if she would do it if I had my camera man on hand, hmmmmm.

"A little boy's place, is on his mommy's horse" (Fancy's mommy)

Fancy is finally back with your Tuesday vote.
Monday night I sat down to vote for our friends and it started to thunder, so I had to shut the computer down. Sunday night I sat down to vote for our friends and I was soo tired, I just couldn't make it. So to bed, I went. Finally, looks like we are going to get the voting done!

My young son, has ridden Fancy for several days now. Everyday he ask to go out and ride. Reminds me of times when he was just old enough to speak. When his little eyes would open in the morning, first thing he would say,"I want my ridie.) Ridie is what he called the palomino pony he rode. He would ride that little palomino pony long as you would lead them around. And never wanted to go in. History repeats itself, I ask him, "are you ready to get down?", and he says,"No, I want to ride." Pity, we only have one horse now. But we will make it work. Hopefully we go to look at saddles today. This child has outgrown his saddle.
I made a video of him and Fancy, I will load it soon. Fancy just walked so slow with him and every now and then she would stop. I told him he has to make her keep walking. He is working on that. The more he rides her, the better she listens to him. Fancy gave him the sweetest hug after he dismounted. I hated I missed that photo. Since she sometimes walk so fast, I only let him ride her in the corral, because she walks lazy in the corral.
Oh, we did have a moment of excitement. Fancy heard something in the woods and she spooked with him. It frightened me, but he remembered the one rein stop and he did stop her! Very well, at that! And he said it didn't frighten him. I was glad. A few minutes later, two adult foxes and two juvenile foxes ran into Fancy's corral from the woods behind her stall. Since I know Fancy will stomp at them, I took him off her. She stood with us very calmly and didn't even pay the foxes any attention. The foxes stopped and looked at us and finally they turned back and ran into the woods. And Hollie, ran into the corral, ALONE, and Fancy let her stay there! What a doll;~)
Well, that is how things are here for now. They are keeping me very busy!
Summer is on now, time for fun! Stay safe and don't forget to share your fun with us.

Here is a vote from your dirty little Fancy friend. I want to bathe my sweet young horsey, but it keeps storming, sometimes hard, sometimes lightly. I am trying so hard to wait for her bath. I am wearing out brushing mudd off her. LOL! We hope the weather is being nice in your neighborhood.

I saw the new question for the week, 'if you could ride anywhere in the world where would it be?' This is a very interesting one! I would love to ride at historic places all over the world and the beach. I would love to ride everywhere I have to go, all the time! I think I should have been on earth years ago when we counted on horses for transportation. LOL> What do you think about this week's question?

Please help spread this message I received earlier today!!!!
HEALTH ALERT !!! **
I just got an e.mail from ACTHA saying they were rescheduling the World Record Ride for the Mustangs because of an out break of EHV-1 in 6 Western states. I looked it up, the states affected so far are Arizona, Utah, California, Idaho, Washington and Colorado. The infected horses had all attended a National Cutting Horse Assoc. show in Utah in early May. Several horses have already been euthanized. Mine get vaccinated yearly but I just called my vet to see how effective the vaccine is. She said no vaccine is 100% effective and recommended a booster shot 6 mo. after the initial dose just to be on the safe side. Please help me spread the word on HC as there are many members from the west. Please be careful. lotsalov D&J
