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.

Fancy is leaving a rearing good vote for you today") I thank God for my little Fancy filly, she is the reason I am a HorseChannel member today. Small things really add up!

What do you think is the most thankful or rewarding part of owning your horse or the last horse you owned. I think for me it is just the way she looks up to me and has a genuine need for my love. Horses don't lie. They can't, it just isn't in them.

SORRY THIS IS ON EVERY PAGE...I took Lightning's fly mask off and his face is better. The hole from the tumor coming off is about half the size it was. The bump's about the same. I put his red halter on to clean it off and used iodine on it. He didn't like that. Probably burns. I then let him out of the corral for some Lightning time. He followed me around like a puppy. I'd start loving on him and he'd turn that big butt around to me to scratch it. Talk about spoiled. He followed me up to the house a couple of times and would then turn around and run back to and around the corral. He's feeling good. So gorgeous. I'm so blessed to have him. I put him back in the corral and Rick came home soon after. He just spent 6 days with his Mom on vacation in Show Low. His Mom and sister went in half and half on vacation property with a house on it. He was helping his brother in law do some work. Don't know when I'll get to go. Anyway, I had to work and was here with Austin and all my 4 legged children. Love and a vote!

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:)

Good Morning vote from Fancy and Frances♥
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!
Have a Beautiful Day, Be Blessed♥

Not only is it hot and humid here, the mosquitos are horrible. Star and Lightning are being eaten up. Their fly spray is out, too. Star almost crushed me out of desperation. I was inside the corral in the corner putting iodine on Lightning's bump and she came over, turned sideways and starting leaning into me. I held her at arms length and kept telling her no. She had me up against the railing of the corral. I somehow scooted sideways and got out of the way. She wouldn't purposely hurt me, but the mosquitos were driving her crazy. Out of desperation, I got a can of Raid and misted around them. I actually misted a couple of light shots at their backs and legs. I hope they'll be okay. I can't stand to see them suffer like that. I hope Mark's mare and mule are okay. If these guys are getting bit, I know they are, too. Sending Rick to pick up spray today. Sorry to put this on every page. Lightning hugs and a vote.

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!!!

The 2 new pictures on the bottom of Lightning's are of Brutus. The doghouse is air conditioned, and he was enjoying it. I found Brutus last July. Someone had thrown him out. I took him to the Vet and was told he's a chow mix. Every now and then, he snaps at me. I figure he was abused. Got to take him in a couple of weeks to get his rabies shot. Will probably get bit.

Four years later, tailor and his rider would distinguish themselves and the USA, by winning the first american gold medal in eventing in 25 years and putting up the best score ever in olympic history in dressage! this in spite of the fact that his rider nearly went off course in the stadium. tailor was named USEA's horse of the year in 2000, at age 15, for this performance at the olympic games.
the horse, tailor, is better known as champion "custom made" and his rider is david o'connor, who now serves as our olympic equestrian coach.
if you'd like to watch a video clip of the highlights of the top 5 riders, including when david o'connor has a "senior moment" and loses his way on course, here is a video link to youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7R2GjvlexY

it also shows american rider, mark todd, in his final olympic ride because he retires after. he's one of my faves! you see his frustratiion in getting a time penalty because he appears to have thought he was within the time and didn't try to push on faster! this was a great olympics for horses. i remember coming out of my chair at home when o'connor almost went off course. the crowd was shouting, "right" to help him. custom made went on 2 years later, at age 17, to win the fairhill international. o'connor had announced it would be his final competition. fans cheered their beloved equine hero at every jump! well done, to a great pair of seniors!! :)

Hey, There's going to be an "Open Games Show" tomorrow evening 7:00 at the saddle club. Just thought I'd mention it just in case. Also something going on Saturday morning at 11:00. I may try to go in the evening so it won't be so hot. That is if my husband and I get back in time from something he has to do on his job. I don't know how long it will last on Saturday.

though tailor and his rider made it on the olympic squad it was for individual rather than team. he was still inconsistent with his stadium jumping. sadly he threw a shoe on the cross country and received time penalties, coming in 8th. he had 2 rails down in individual stadium and came in 5th. this would not be his best olympic performance. :) he used this experience 4 years later, to distinguish himself in the next olympics, which i'll tell you about tomorrow.
had the farrier out today and got all my horse's hooves trimmed. sing has front shoes, all others barefoot.

Fancy is dropping you a breakfast vote:)
Fancy seems to be calming down around Queenie. I do expect her to have another moment of weakness before she totally gives her approval of Queenie. But Queenie, being the smart little thing that she is, doesn't trust Fancy yet. And I think that is best. So, I don't encourage her to approach Fancy. I believe she is better off to keep her distance:)
