FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, OUR REDEEMER LIVES!!!:

Have this Fancy Easter vote this Sunday evening.
It has been a very busy weekend.
We got up at 4am to get ready for Sunrise service at our church. Enjoyed the services until I began to get sleepy during the regular sermon.


After church, I worked on my Mom's flower garden. I began it last Mother's day as her present from me. I am still working on it. Got all the weeds out, planted two perennials, put weed barrier down and added plant soil. Whew!


We finally went home and I put fresh water out for the herd and gave them their grain. I cleaned some tack while they ate. I still have to keep Fancy out of Fatima's grain. Trigger eats in the stall so I don't have to worry about Fancy taking his grain.
After they ate, I bridled Fatima and drove her around while I walked beside her. She doesn't seem to know any cue for walk on. She is learning whoa. She has learned to walk to the tree after our lessons so I can tie her. She stopped as we got to the tree and I talked to her real nice and she came on so I could tie her out. She stood there calmly and I untied her and waked her around and back to tie. I did that a few times and she was fine.


Then Fancy and I practiced what little I know for our showmanship class. Then Fancy ate grass in the yard. Then I put Fancy back in the corral and Fatima ate grass in the yard.


My body is very tired. Ready for rest! This has been a blessed day. I pray the rest of the week is nice as well.


Hope you are enjoying this blessed holiday.

Come visit me, FANCY Walk N That Way: hv a blessed Easter holiday, Fatima: vote Whiskey 237221 May HOTM!, ♦COWBOY & TRIGGER♦ & Fancy's 2012 HC Members Veterans Day Trail Ride!.

The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

HI. Here is a vote from Fancy and herd.
Fancy had her spring pedicure this morning before her breakfast. She was a good girl for the farrier. He finished in only a few minutes, and we were on our way home.
Fatima and Trigger ate breakfast while Fancy was away.
The last thing the man told me as I pulled out of his drive with Fatima in tow, "she will not tie, you can't tie her!"
Sooo, today, after some ground work, I tied Fatima. You can see her standing nice and calmly in her profile photo:)

Happy EASTER, for our SAVIOR has risen ♥

We left off Friday about the phone call to buy Whiskey! The arrangement was made for us to meet that weekend and Whiskey would be mine. The next few days were like a life time to me. I had put in a vacation day for that Friday because I knew I couldn’t concentrate and I wanted to get everything ready for the trail ride …I mainly wanted to get everything ready for his new home with us. Cliff was putting in our stalls at the time. I came home the day Karla called and talked with Cliff of course. Like I said he wasn’t working but he was working at our place (love cheap labor) lol. That next day after work I came home and he had added the 3rd stall, I started to cry of course because I knew he understood how badly I wanted Whiskey. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

As we ate lunch and rested, Whiskey walked over to me several times. He would nuzzle my hand (at the time I didn’t know he was a treat hound) and I felt as if we bonded and we were linked in some way. I told Karla right then and there that if they ever sold Whiskey to please contact me first. He has marbling on his lower legs that are silver, chocolate and nearly liver color (see his profile picture for today). It amazes me to still look at how he is marked; he is just absolutely beautiful-but I’m parcel!!! He is our escape artist, the one that can get into or out of ANYTHING; such a smarty pants and a treat hound lol. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

whiskey is sending hugs & love
Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey would love your support for his HOTM run
In 2008 the decision was made after a talk with our boy’s and Cliff. It was time for me to get back on my horse journey. I purchased Deacon in March 23, 2008 and then bought Whiskey in May 2010. When I run Deacon I will tell more about the 1st 2 years back on my journey. Now that you have some back ground on me and my journey I will start Whiskey’s story with me. As many of you know I trail ride and use to camp with the horses all the time, now we just day ride. Hoping this spring sometime to camp again-fingers crossed =) It has been 2 years sense we have camped out with them. We would camp at Mccown or Plowman Valley at Lake Whitney Texas or at Reynolds Creek Lake Waco, Texas. During those times I have met a lot of people and their different type of horses. On one Oct. weekend we had some friends of Bill’s that was coming that I had never met. I asked Bill as we all were getting our horses ready for our ride that day, what type horses did these friends have? He said Rocky Mountain horses…I said hummmm, never heard of that breed. The thoughts in my head about this breed had me so curious. Now tomorrow we are into his story fully….hang in there! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I will explain how I came about choosing my Whiskey and Deacon so it takes us Wwway back~~~~~ lol ~ I got out of the Navy in 1986. I knew I wanted to get a horse at the time and I wanted to try barrel racing. I had a friend in California (last place I was stationed) that was running the circuit barrel racing and a boyfriend riding bulls so I guess that is what made me want to try barrels. I really just wanted a horse to care for and ride because I loved them so much. I moved back to Texas and started my search. I met a lady where I started working that raised quarter horses and she had a beautiful dark bay mare that I started riding, her name was Fanny. She was very gentle and easy to handle. My sister said I could put a fence up on her property and use their garage to convert into a stall and storage area. So I went to work with a few friends and converted this place and added one stall and a tack area. It took a few months to get everything ready so the lady let me make payments. Once she was paid off, and the property was ready I brought her home with me. Things just didn’t work out for Fanny & me. I’m sure you all can relate to the fact that some horses and humans are not a match. That is how it was with her, just didn’t feel right. The hunt was on and a new year began 1987 ~ Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

HI Katie, here's a vote for ya. What a day, we took the day off of riding (my trainer and another friend)and went to a tack shop sale that was going out of business! Of course, don't listen to a GPS system, took us 40 minutes and 30 miles out of our way! But I did get a new underpad for showing in. It's thin and will protect my good show pads. And new Hobby Horse Whiskey colored chaps. Saved a ton of money, on two items like $100, was very happy with that. When we got back to Marissa's I did lunge Paige and do some showmanship work with her. Cut it short, needed to get home to Harley and the boys. Got home like 5:30pm, gave them a late, very late hay lunch and played with Harley. After almost 4 hours in the truck in travel time, I'm tired! LOL! Marion and the blondies

Hi, here is a Superb Saturday vote from Fancy & herd ♥

We are expecting the rains to return tomorrow. Soo, today I wanted to give the herd a bath but I only groomed them. Guess we will have baths after the rains make their exit.

Last Saturday I used the weight tape to measure Fatima, she was 860 lbs. Today the weight tape read 960 lbs. Fatima is slowly gaining weight and you cant even see it. I will be so happy when I can see the gain.

Fatima does not like me on her left side. So that is where I hang out. LOL. I know she thinks I am crazy. But that is how I operate. If she does not like it, that is what we will do. Some of her long hair was lose today, but there is still enough long hair on her to make a Trigger sized horsey.

How is your weekend?
Have a blessed night.

I have dealt with a thin horse before. Seems like one day they look just a little fatter and then there are days when I wonder if it was all in my desperation-to-see-weight-gain-imagination. All in all, I believe I see a slight gain. I took photos of Fatima the day we brought her here and each following week. When I compare the photos, I see less withers, less ribs, and less hip bones. But I still see a very thin horse.
We are expecting another 2 days of rain. When the rains make their exit, I plan to see 3 little horses have a spa day.

Enjoy a lovely weekend.

The storm is over and there were more power outages and some fallen limbs. I am glad it was not bad as the last storm.
Fancy's herd is doing fine. Fatima is gaining a little weight and she still acts the same. Trigger is just golden. Our friend that rode him the other week, she keeps talking about how good Trigger is.

Hi how are you? Haven't heard from you so just checking in =)
<)__~ For us here in Central Texas it is COLD!!!!! We are 19 but feels 3, icy roads and the whole 9 yards… it won’t last long thank goodness. I did get a ride in on Deacon Friday after work. My trail ride Saturday with Whiskey was so beautiful and warm, nearly 80 and a lot of sunshine. The people that we knew came with a large group like 15 + so we rode by ourselves, we did see many others we knew but again they were all in large groups. Safety for me (I know that’s everyone’s 1st thought-I have other reasons why I have to be so very careful). Some of you know why, some will have to wait until next month when I run Whiskey for May HOTM to learn the rest of my story….Loping by with a tap on your horseshoe, hugs & love to you all!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
Q: Can February March?
A: No, but April May!

HI guys, Fancy is here with a Monday morning vote and a blog from Frances.

Good morning! I will tell you a little about our weekend before I run out of steam ")
I am still working with the scar tissue in my hand. The lump in my hand is still large, but has decreased in size. I think that is good.

Fatima is gaining weight in her rib area and she is very friendly.

My oldest son came home Friday. We have been out a lot. Saturday he cooked breakfast before we went out to introduce him to Fatima. They got along very well. Fatima knows how to lunge. My son saddled her and she stood well. I put the broken bit in her mouth and tested to see if she would give to the bit. She did not seem to have a clue about the bit. Fatima kept biting at the shanks of the broken bit, even though they were short. She kept tossing her head also. I decided to exchange the broken bit with Fancy's trail curb bit. Fatima did not know how to give to the bit, but she did better with the curb bit. She stopped tossing her head and did not bite at the curb bit. My son sat on her and she only stood still. She acted like she had no idea about how to walk off or listen to the bit. But she did not show any mean or sour tendencies.
Fatima would not follow Cowboy and Trigger so, I lead her around for a minute while my son sat on her. We took all of them to the field. A friend rode Fancy to the field, I had to lead them. She was afraid Fancy would not listen to her because she does not know how to ride well.

When we got to the field, my oldest son rode Fancy. Fancy was a little spirited. They ran around the field with Cowboy and Trigger. Fancy was doing a gorgeous trot with a lot of extension. I have no idea how she came about doing that. I have got to learn about these gaits! I am glad I saw that. I was surprised Fatima did not respond to them running around her.
I lead our young friend around the field on Fatima and Trigger. She felt very comfortable with Trigger and she rode him without our assistance. Trigger is a real gentle fellow.
We did see that Fatima has a slight dish face. You can see it a little on her profile photo. Fatima's dish is less than Trigger's dish face. That sounds funny. LOL. Fatima does not have any of the spirit or animation you usually see in Arabians.

We had a family party that evening and then went out of town to roller skate. I did skate, I stayed to myself, I skate slow. I got mowed over by a crazy person. I feel on my left hand. I had to sit out for a long time, (till I stopped shaking) Then I got my gumption up and went at it again. I would skate for a few minutes and go sit back down, because I kept feeling scared after that wreck. My sons were wanting to go knock him down. LOL. I did not allow that, but the thought was funny. My 3 sons! LOL.

Then we went to another place for laser tag and games. I did not know there was a safe place for young peopl

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: "In seed-time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy." (William Blake)

Sorry I have missed doing Fancy's Perceptions during February holidays. I did not forget the holidays. I am just trying to get this scar tissue to heal. I did not soak my hand Saturday and the area became knotted up again. I don't know what that means. But I will continue to soak and do my therapy. Oh well.

Saturday we came about getting a mare. She is quit a bit underweight. I will try to care for her and get her in better shape. I believe she will make someone a good horse. The man said she is an Arabian. The more I see her, the more I think she is a QH or TB. I plan to ask the vet what he thinks. She might be part Arabian. But I don't see that either.

Are you ready for Spring? Have you had enough Winter? I certainly am loving these lovely days. It feels like spring here! I think it will get cold again here before it warms up for good.

Have a lovely week, I will continue to vote contest each day, and leave a blog and vote for everybody when I can. Depends on my hands.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: “My Horse, My Heart”
Happy Valentines vote from Fancy ♥

Sorry I am not visiting you each day right now. I am only trying to heal. I spoke with the nurse. She told me I might have expected too much right now. Like jumping the gun. She said it has not been that much time for healing. I soak my hand in the epsom salts each day. I think it might be helping.

Wednesday and Thursday we had our biggest snow in many years! Yesterday it was snowing so hard I could hardly see Fancy or Trigger and it stopped after 3pm and the sun came out. It was lovely. I wanted to ride Fancy soooo bad. But my hand felt sore and tender. Maybe next time :(

While it snowed I watched Fancy chase Trigger around. Once Trigger was in the stall and Fancy was not even bothering him. She was out playing in the snow.
When the sun came out, we all went outside! Cowboy rode his 4 wheeler and Bandit, my Husky, kept digging through the snow to the ground, like there was some hidden treasure there, he was so funny bouncing around in the snow. In all I think we all enjoyed the soft fluffy snow! Now we will deal with the MUDD.

Enjoy a safe and blessed weekend.
Love Fancy, Trigger, and family ♥
