JESUS PRAYS TO BE GLORIFIED
“Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4 I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

Good Morning HC friends! Fancy and I are leaving a thankful vote for being part of something so wonderful")
Lady Jane(#189648) told me she says a little prayer for Petite Fleur'S(#107376) medical condition, when she votes for her. Lady Jane suggested that if we all join her with a little prayer when we leave a vote, it would make all the difference.
I do believe in the power of prayer! And it being Thanksgiving holiday, What better time to ask for a special prayer for each other. Let's make this a special occasion for prayer. Let us join in together and say a prayer for each friend and member we vote for or just a prayer for the whole HC club and all of it's members. No need to be stingy with a good prayer!!!
We have friends that are traveling, friends with loved family members facing surgery, some of our horses are facing health problems(and you know all these things worry us greatly!) We have a need for the Thanksgiving prayer:) I hope this isn't asking too much of you, only takes a few seconds, unless you choose otherwise:)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND LOVE YOU GUYS AND YOUR WONDERFUL HORSES!!!

Fancy, and Frances are leaving an Autumn vote! Hey it's chilly this morning!!!!!!!

I hope your weekend was very nice. NC weather was lovely this weekend! I rode Fancy Sunday too. I learned to ask her for leg yields in an open space (like an empty parking lot or vacant lot) to give her time to get it right. This way when she goes the wrong way, I don't have to worry about getting into something we shouldn't be in. And I can offer her the patience that she is accustomed to. I think her being so hyper to go out and the stimulus of outside events makes it hard for her to concentrate the way she does in the corral. She was a lot better on Sunday than she was Saturday and we had a nice relaxed ride. Which was wonderful!!!

Here is a vote from Fancy!

Monday evening I went out to spend some quality time with Fancy") I really needed that. We practiced some leg yields and backing with me in the saddle. Fancy was pretty good with the backing. It took a few attempts before she understood the leg yields. It takes a few tries but each time she does them better than the last time. After a few minutes I let her graze and just enjoy some quiet time together.
My saddle is very comfy with the new adjustments. It is easy to keep my heels down and I am not reaching for the stirrup! That felt good! I can't wait to use them for a longer ride and see how my knees feel.

Are you and your best equine pal doing anything special this week?

Gotta Saturday Night vote for you! I hope you have had as much fun as we have today! Today was bath day for Fancy. After her bath my son (on his bike) and I hand walked Fancy around the block. We let her graze before going home. I saddled Fancy and I rode her around the neighborhood and through the car wash:), while my son rode his bike. She surprised me by walking sooo slow the whole time. I couldn't believe it. I didn't even have to fight with her to go into our yard. She was just layed back and easy going! I was just surprised! I took tons of photos with my clean girl. Now she smells fresh too! I hated to put her into her corral. I hope she doesn't roll tonight:( I will see about that in the morning, LOL.

I am soo tired, but I'm trying to return votes for today. Fancy and I rode out with Tirnanog and my brother Saturday and Sunday after Church we rode out with my neighbor up the street. He rode Commanche his 10 year old paint. Today was Fancy and Commanche's first time crossing the railroad track. Fancy crossed it first and he followed right behind. My neighbor couldn't believe she went first. At first she was unsure, but I kept talking to Fancy and she went right on and I patted her and told her how proud I was. Then he did the same with Commanche. At the next track Commanche went across first. It was a fun ride. Fancy and I led most of the ride. Commanche hasn't visited his page lately, but you can see how pretty he is at his HC page #155223.

How was your weekend? Did you enjoy a ride? Whatever your weekend was about, I hope you enjoyed it:)

How are you today, did you have a nice weekend?

I would like to keep my Fancy shoe free, so I am considering purchasing hoof boots for Fancy. If anyone has any experience with these, please let me know about that. I would like to know about the ease of putting them on, if they come off easily in mud, how long they last, if they rub sores on the horses coronet or other area, did they have any effect on the hoof itself, do you think they are a good investment, and just any info you can share.
If you have anything to share or not I would like to personally thank you for giving me your attention and let you know I appreciate every friendly member I have met here. You are top notch horse lovers, the greatest!

Ok, I hope EVERYONE is enjoying a great weekend!
I have had an aweful week with my son being sick and personal issues. But as always my Fancy time has made all the bad things seem so small. God knows I love that little horse. I really need my horse. She is my blessing.
Today was the first time we rode out with Tirnanog! I was going to keep MISS Pants behind Tirnanog. Hoping she would settle down and walk slow. Tirnanog walks very slow and relaxed. Nothing seemed to phase him today. Well MISS Pants wasn't going for any slow walking mess. So I let her go and every now and then we would circle back and around Tirnanog, So we don't get too far ahead. I convinced her to walk through a few muddy water puddles in some driveways. We walked through the car wash, didn't get a wash though, LOL. Had fun stepping up a bank with a cement wall. Fancy has done this with out me on her. Today we did it together. Only problem, when we step down into the street, the last few times Fancy would jump instead of walk. Tirnanog was soo cool he just stepped up and down very easy like. The only thing that bothered Fancy today was a loud dirt bike. The guy saw her reaction and I was very thankful he turned and went the other way. My brother said he isn't to ride those on the streets any way. We stopped and let them graze for at least an hour and we stopped and talked to children and other people too. Fancy was attracted to the children. I was very impressed with her good behavior with them. Don't know how our future rides will be, but this one was a well needed breath of fresh air. I told my brother to get things ready so we can visit some state parks this fall. I think that will be even more fun!!!

A Good Thursday Morning vote to you! I thought Wednesday would be boring, not. I have trained Fancy to step on boards and approach things since she was 10 months old. I decided she is ready to do this under saddle. I laid a good sized board in her corral. We done some groundwork and desensitizing. I let her walk over it without me on her. She kept pawing it and making the noise. She likes the noise SHE makes. When she was walking over it fine, I mounted and rode her over it. She walked slowly the first two or three times in one direction. Changed directions and I had to encourage her to walk on. She did. She stopped as soon as she was off of the board and turned her head to look at me and sniff my leg on the left and right. It was like she was asking me if we were ok. After a few repeats we were walking right over that board just fine. So I unsaddled her and hand walked her around the neighborhood for some grazing. Folks were asking me why I wasn't riding. I told them I allready did that:) Nobody understands. It is not just about the riding:) On the way home, that fox crossed the road in front of us! He stopped and slowly turned to look at us. I shook my lead rope at it and when I did, Fancy stomped at it with her front leg. When she did, that fox ran into the bushes. I patted her on the neck and we finished our walk and went home. I think if I am riding her and she sees that fox, I think she will try to stomp it.

Stopping by with a late evening vote:) Whew, I am tired. It has been a crazy strange day. But my Fancy time made it all well at the end of this day.
I have ridden Fancy three days straight now. Each day has gotten better. I pray this trend continues:) When I went out this afternoon Fancy was running around like something WILD! Bucking, jumping, rearing, and running! I looked at her and thouhgt maybe I shouldn't get on her today. Well I decided to work it out. In the corral we did some ground work and I mounted her. Rode about 5 minutes, she was listening very well:) So I dismounted and headed out into the yard. We did some more groundwork, then I mounted and she kept her head straight out and didn't move. She is a little stiff on the right side, so I decided to work on right circles. We done several small circles until she begin to listen calmly. As she relaxed and began to listen we made larger circles. Boy, this was better than yesterday! I decided to circle things like the tree, the dog lot, the shed and Fancy was very good. I even let her walk fast and I enjoyed it:) I wish I could have seen it!!!!! We went into the side yard and she did speed up when she thought we were going out of the driveway. More tight circles and back into the back yard, over and over until she calmed down. Since she wanted to go out, I headed to the other driveway and went out and up into the first driveway, did this a few times. Then we walked up and down the street a few times. Fancy didn't want to go in the upper driveway, so, I decided to take her up the street. I walked her past the other horses because I didn't know how she would act. She looked at them and kept going, like she was saying look at me! She ate some grass and then I asked her if she could be a good girl and ride me home past the other horses. Believe it or not, Fancy nodded her head up and down. I put her bridle back on and she stood perfectly still while I mounted and we walked home!!!!!!!!! The only problem I had was, again she didn't want to go in the drive. I gave her a tap on the shoulder and she went on:) I groomed her while she ate grass:) Now I am all cleaned up and tired:)

We bestow upon you this Grand SummerHot Tuesday vote!!!

You wouldn't believe what happened yesterday morning! This guy put his three horses across the street from where Tirnanog is pastured at. And one of them is a stallion. This is the 3rd or 4th time the stallion has gotten out and terrorized the other horses. The horse in the photo with Tirnanog is a mare. This horse bred with her yesterday. Her owner had to get a shot from the vet to abort any pregnancy. My brother called me to medicate Tirnanog. So off I went. He was scratched up, some a little bad and some not. But a lot. BUT one horse there is an appalosa and he got beaten badly. They had to call the vet. His right shoulder was torn open and the muscle was hanging out. I have never seen anything like it. It was a huge wound. It looked like a bomb exploded in his shoulder. But the vet and the guys said the stallion bit him and left that wound. The stallion is small but he is very bad. If Tirnanog would not have ran, he would have gotten hurt very badly. Everyone was very angry, even the vet. I hope this is not something that is seen often or at all:(

A vote for you on this lovely & hot Saturday!
Oh, Tirnanog has developed a strange habit. The last few times he has been ridden, after mounting him he bucks a few times and then looks back to see if you are still on him and then if you are still there, he walks on like nothing happens. HMMM, I wonder what is on his mind.
We saw the movie Avatar yesterday and it was better than I ever expected. I told my sons I was going to braid my hair and go out and plug it into Fancy's mane to see if we would bond. They laughed. Ha, they just didn't know, it worked. LOL. Now when I ride Fancy I am going to think I am plugged into one of those huge winged creatures soaring through the air!
Have you ever seen a movie that made you feel like that could be you on your horse? Well, that is my fantasy for the week:) What is yours?

A Tuesday evening vote for a friend;) Fancy and I have been learning new skills. If you would like to see how we are doing, look up video 'FancyLearnNSomethingNew'. I would also like to thank each one that has taken their time to view our videos. That has meant a lot to me and just having you guys in my horse loving life means a lot to me.
Summer is finally here and tons of horsey activities come with these sunny days, be safe, and most of all have fun!
You are doing some wonderful things for our Lord this summer. I didn't get to teach the 3rd grade class as usual. They changed teachers this year. The lady I assisted is retiring from it because she is having knee surgery this July. The new teacher had someone else to help her. Well I enjoyed it while i had the chance. You have fun!

Finally sliding by with a vote! I will sleep well tonight;) I learned sooo much at the TWH show today. In the halter classes I saw them making some of the same mistakes I make and that made me feel normal:) I learned some good points that will help me with Fancy too. I met some wonderful TWH lovers! I am going to spend some time trying to teach Fancy to set up. There was a lovely black gelding there and he set up so easily. Oh, what a dream to have Fancy do that. I understand the gaits better now to. There was just soo much that I learned today!
When I got home I was so siked up, I loaded Fancy and visited Tirnanog for a few hours. Just hanging out while they munched grass:)
Well enough boring you with that:) I hope your Father's Day Weekend is going very well!

A vote from Fancy! Wow, what a day. I finished lunch, headed to the back porch to put my boots on, heard a crack and thuds! I was wondering, what in the world is Fancy playing with now. I looked out the back door and half of her tree had fallen. I ran to get my camera and went out. She ran to me and had this look like she wanted me know something was going on. That is the fourteenth photo on her page. Then she stood in front of me and snorted at the tree. Next thing I know she is all in the tree playing games with the tree. She bites the trunk and prances away. Then she pulls the limb and prances away. She grabs a mouthfull of leaves and prances away. She is walking under it and everywhere, then she prances like she has done something, silly little mare! Ok, I missed this photo, she scratches her butt on the fallen limbs after I put my camera away. Next thing I know it is extremely windy and a huge storm blows through. I am glad it is over:)

Her perception for this day was right on!

TGIF Vote!!! Fancy was grazing in some clovers and she gave the funniest snort, like she was trying to get something out of her nose. I have never heard this snort before. I was wondering, have you ever heard of a bee going into a horses nose?
Oh, Fancy's profile photo. She will stand in the water with both front feet or she will turn that bucket over and beat on it for hours. It is really bad at night when you want to sleep. So I tied the bucket to the fence. But she did manage to pull it away and she did make a lot of noise:) So I took it out again.
I will be online this weekend if possible. We have activities tonight and my son is graduating!!!! Oh Yes!!!
