How We Met

I adopted him when he was two at a rescue in oklahoma sight unseen as a green broke two year old. He was a good little horse but I was not a good rider so we sold him. Three years later we bought him back as a green broke 5 year old and he is amazing!.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: HONORING VETERANS
TAKE NOTHING FOR GRANTED!
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Q: What happened to the Pilgrim who was shot by an Indian?
A: He had an arrow escape!

Q: If a man wants to eat a turkey on Thanksgiving, what does a turkey want?
A: It simply wants to run away!

Q: Rich people eat what on Thanksgiving?

Please vote Fancy for VHS Baby Face Contest♥
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?

PLEASE VOTE DECEMBER HOTM;)

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 entered Fancy in the Virtual Horse/Baby Face contest. Please vote for her.

SATURDAY'S VOTE

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
A city slicker moves to the country and decides he's going to start farming. He goes to the local farmer and says,"Give me 100 baby chickens." The farmer complies. A week later the man returns and says,"Give me 200 baby chickens." The farmer complies again. Another week goes by and the man returns and this time he says,"Give me 500 baby chickens."
"Wow!", the farmer replies. "You must really be doing well."
"Naw", said the man with a sigh."I'm either planting them too deep or too far apart!"

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♥

Fancy moving on by with your vote tonight♥
Are you riding this weekend? I hope you are having fun what ever you are doing:)

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!!!

Fancy is here with sunny Monday wishes and a vote♥

Did you enjoy your weekend?
It is cloudy here. Every now and then it rains. It's cool one minute, hot the next. I couldn't believe that. But it was. I want to take a little ride around the neighborhood today. It is still cloudy and looks like rain. Maybe I will get a ride, just going to have to see if I can squeeze one in between my work and the raindrops. We might just wait till Tuesday, less house work on Tuesday:)

Good Morning! Just leaving you a vote and a wish for you to have a nice day:)

I read the poll question today. Fancy doesn't do any of those things. I think she is a little original. She plays with things. Sometimes that is good, sometimes that is bad. How about your horse?

A very pretty quarter horse, and HC member for 1 1/2 year, June, is running for HOTD August 5. Please make a new friend: visit, blog, and vote for June #120269 today:)

A vote from stormy North Carolina. I just got in from a horse show. It was bad driving home in the storm. I didn't get to take Fancy because we took the hitch off the truck and didn't get the other one on yet. I was glad I didn't have Fancy out in this storm:)

I hope your weekend is going well:)

The week is almost done, here is your Thursday vote:)

Has anyone tried the new Purina Ultium? Because it is for horses 2 years and older, I tried it for about a month. It was not good for us. I emailed Purina regarding our outcome. They informed me the new feed is for horses on maintenance. And I would have to feed Fancy 20% more Ultium than regular Strategy to get the same results. So it didn't work out for us. If you have tried Ultium, let me know how it works for you. Fancy has been on Purina Strategy since I have owned her, except this past 4 weeks, She is back on Strategy now and I don't think I will try any other changes in grain unless it can not be avoided:)
