Haaave a vote from my Fancy filly, this Monday night.

Well, the hay frame is holding up. There is little hay on the ground. I still have to give it a few days before I say Fancy won't demolish it. Fancy is still chasing kittens, but when she catches up with them she is not trying to stomp them anymore. I can't believe the kittens don't run from her anymore. She sniffs them and snorts at them.
I have not seen King this past weekend. My brother does spend time with him and he seems to be enjoying himself with his new King.
I can not believe it will be autumn this month! I only plan to ride more. Do you plan any different horsey related activities due to the change in seasons?

Had a nice evening with the girls. I let them out of the corral for some excercise. Sadie ran and kicked and even played a game of keep away with me. She's such a funny character. Star's doing good and looking better. Love and a vote.

I put a picture of the road runner on the bottom of Sadie's page from yesterday morning. He was in the corral eating with the the girls. They had alfalfa, and I guess he had bugs. There was another one in the backyard at the same time. And no, he's not a threat to the dogs. They would be to him, tho'. I'm glad they're hanging out here. They're keeping the back yard clear of creepy critters. There was one in the front yard, too. He was zooming around a row of quail. Hugs and a vote.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out" (Walter Winchell)

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!

After Austin and I got back Monday from picking up a bale of hay, I opened the gate so I could drive around back. I saw the road runner running from the back of the corral out into the desert behind our property. He must like horses, too. He likes to stay by the hay as if watching them. He's about a foot tall and has a spikey hairdo. He always has access to water. I keep the dogs' pool filled. Pidgeons and other birds enjoy the pool, too. Why he had to try the water trough is beyond me. Road runners eat snakes, lizards, scorpions, rodents and other birds as well. During the winter months, they live on whatever vegetation they can find. And they are fast. Coyotes use to come up the water tank, about 2 acres from my house, when it leaked for a drink of water. I guess road runners get their name from all the running they do. I've seen them run across the highway. The dogs are in their dog house with the ac on when it's enjoying the back yard. Don't know what he'll do when the weather cools down enough not to run the dog's ac. They'll be out of the doghouse then. But since they don't like to stay in the yard, he should be free to stay. Hugs and a vote.

Austin said the road runner was hanging out at the dog pool Sunday morning. I guess we're his new family, even tho' he runs like crazy when he sees us. Austin was trying to figure out how it got in the water trough. Since Sadie's tossed things in it before, he was thinking she may have done it. I don't think so. I think he somehow got up on the edge like he does the dog pool and tried to get a drink from a half empty trough and lost his balance. Only Sadie and the road runner know and neither are talking. Have a safe Labor Day. Hugs and a vote.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“GRAMMAR HAS GOTS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANTEST THINGS EVER? (unknown)

Fancy is dropping this Monday vote for you ♡

Have you ever seen a horse lay and roll too close to the pipe fencing and they get their rear legs stuck in the fence? Fancy did this about 2 times when she was a yearling. One time I had to take the panel lose so she could free herself. That was probably dangerous for me because I had to hold the panel, but I did leave one of the fasteners in. Seeing the scratches on her lower hind legs, it seems she has done this a few days ago. Do they just have to learn not to do this or is anything besides running a string of electric to prevent this from happening. Usually they don't repeat it too many times. Maybe she will be more careful now that she is older and knows again how unpleasant it is.

Thanks to my HC friends for prayers and support during last week. I am finally feeling normal again. After that experience I am ready for the allergy test so I can stay safe. This was a bit upsetting for me because Fancy's doggone coggins just expired and I was about to load Fancy up for her vet appointment to get that coggins updated. Instead, I got a doc appointment and had to use the coggin's money for allergy meds. I had to reschedule her vet appointment! Now I don't know if that coggins will be back in time for us to make the local horse show in our town in September. If we make it, that will be our first show! I will see.
I tied Fancy while I cleaned her courtyard(cause she is the queen. LOL!). Finally, Fancy and I had our time together. Fancy seemed so happy. I didn't ride her or do any lessons. We just hung out in the yard and she ate grass while I groomed her. Just a pleasant quiet time.

Today is suppose to be the hottest this week. Suppose to cool down to 112* by Saturday. From October thru May, the weather here is nice. The girls are doing okay. They have plenty of water. I let them out of the corral Wednesday evening, and Sadie ran and kicked up her heels. She stuck her wet nose to my ear being socialable. Star has such limited sight. Wearing a flymask at night makes it even harder for her to see. Poor girl. She followed my voice to the water trough she was having trouble finding. She gets around good. She may have been a little thrown off, because Sadie was close by and makes her nervous, because Sadie's bossy....Please pray for Lara and Mac's grandfather who's in the hospital. Hugs and a vote.

Much cooler Thursday, because it was so windy. Sadie's almost rubbed all of the hair off of her tail. Probably because of the sun and the heat. She's bleaching from black to brown, too. Still beautiful, tho'. Star's doing good. A Friday vote.
