Nov 2013 1st Place HorseChannel Costume Contest

May 25, 2013 In the Western Non-Trot class, Fancy won her very 1st blue ribbon!
OCT 20, 2012 we rode in our 1st Parade.

SEPT 22, 2012: Our 1st Fair Show! 3rd place Halter all Mares and 2nd place Most Colorful
APRIL 21, 2012 our very first show experience:
3rd place in Adult Halter English or Western & 5th place in Open Halter all mares.

NOV 05,2011 our first group trail ride!!!
MAY 30, 2011 First time I rode Fancy INTO the creek, she enjoyed the water, splashed it all over her belly!
MARCH 12, 2011 Fancy & I rode into the woods alone. She enjoys trail riding.

JAN 08,2011 Fancy won 1st place in the HC Virtual Horse Show.

DEC 26, 2010 Fancy enjoyed her first ride in the snow!
NOV 2010: I learned Fancy naturally does a running walk when I ride her.
OCT 24, 2010 Fancy is learning leg yields.
AUG 21, 2010: 27 month old Fancy's first ride with Tirnanog & my brother.
JULY 11, 2010: First time riding 26 month old Fancy around the block.

JULY 8, 2010: I rode 26 month old Fancy up & down the street past other horses. She was well behaved!
JUNE 07, 2010: I rode 25 month old Fancy in the back yard. She moves more alert out of the corral.
APRIL 23, 2010: 23 months old. After a little groundwork, I sat in the saddle. Since she is very forward, as I expected she began to walk. When she halted on her own, I dismounted & she gave me a horsey hug with her neck. I hugged her, rubbed her all over her neck & face, & gave her horsey nose kisses. I was thrilled with our small progress.
MARCH 19,2010: I lead 22 month old Fancy while my husband sat in the saddle. This was her first time feeling weight heavier than my son at 9 years old. Once I got her going she was ok.
MARCH 16, 2010: I stood in both stirrups & over her back, didn't sit in saddle yet. 22 month old Fancy was just fine.

NOV 03, 2009: at 18 months old, first time grounddriving using her snaffle bit. Fancy was great!
OCT 26, 2009: 17 month old Fancy stands tied quietly wearing her snaffle bit & is learning to give laterally.
Summer 2009: Yearling Fancy grounddrives with halter.
APRIL 2009: 11 month old Fancy trailers now.
MARCH 2009: I gained a wild little 10 month old Fancy's trust enough to groom, touch her complete body, lift all 4 feet, halter, & lead her.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Fancy loves apples, pecans and even more she loves watermelon! During our marshmallow roast I learned Fancy likes marshmallows too.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Fancy loves to eat grass, be groomed and take long walks with me to the park and walking to the creek in the woods. Fancy likes to use her food buckets and water buckets to play jug music, mostly at night. The running walk has to be Fancy's favorite gait because she does it naturally when I ride her.

Pet Peeves: Fancy doesn't care for trains, peppermints, people she doesn't know coming up to her fast & she will stomp big or small dogs that run around her. That includes foxes! Oh no, Fancy's a bunny stomper & kitty chaser too!

My Horse's motto: GOOD THINGS HAPPEN WHEN YOU PAY ATTENTION!!!

How We Met

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: Remember, a Cowgirl’s heart always has a heart full of hope and a life full of laughter. (unknown)


Luke 13:1-5 without repentance we will all perish!
John 3:16 (NIV)3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.


After having 3 horses that didn't work out for me due to disposition or lameness, I decided to research breeds to choose what I thought to be the best horse for me. Winter of 2008/2009, with research in hand, I began the search for MY horse. March 9, 2009, I found an online classified add with no photo for a 10 month old buckskin filly on Horsetopia. I called the phone number at 9am to arrange a visit. That day my husband came in from work and drove us to Floyd, VA to see this wild, untouched, spirited, woolly 10 month old filly named Fancy. When I saw that little filly my heart loved her. My husband purchased Fancy for my early 2009 birthday present.
Summer of 2012: After a lot of prayer and a lot of hard work Fancy & I are enjoying fun shows & long trail rides together.
AIN'T LIFE GRAND!

Fancy is MY blessing from God, she adds a spiritual love to my life that is felt in my heart and soul.


"A horse is the projection of people's dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence." (Pam Brown)

Hi Frances & Fancy, So sorry for being offline a lot lately. The past two weeks have been pretty busy. I had a sinus infection which caused me not to even see Koot for a week which was an absolute bummer and because of that I won't be able to compete in the barrel race August 30th since Koot hasn't been exercised enough. I'm pretty bummed about that, but I don't want to chance hurting him. I took Koot for a ride Sunday and then a short trail last night with my pup, Tig. They had a great time. How are things with you? Have you gotten horsey time in? Koot and I still plan to run for October HOTM so please vote for us :) thanks! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Come visit me, Kootenai.

Sorry for not being on a lot! I have been busy. Thanks for all Spangle's support!

The rest of Spangle's story:
Spangle still goes through bratty phases, but he has become nicer to Rose. He also is doing better under saddle. We are considering sending him to a trainer, but haven’t decided. The most important thing is that he is nicer to Rose. I hope you enjoyed Spangle’s story!

♡ I was a very lazy lady yesterday. I pretty much just rested. I haven’t had a vacation sense February and it is surely getting to me. I can’t take any time off until after the 19th of September. I fed yesterday morning and just gave everyone a big hug and didn’t get back out until after 5 pm. I turned them out to graze awhile before evening feeding time. Here is a hug, love & a Wednesday vote :)

Hi Fancy, here's a vote for ya. I'm still trying to catch up on sleep and start my clean up to put the trailer up for the winter. It's great having Paige home again, love seeing that pretty face when I walk in the barn. She really enjoyed her time out in the pasture today. What a big show!!! OMG, we were in some deep classes, packed with trainers and super good amateurs. Most of my classes and Marissa's and Laurel's one class were about an average of 13 to 19 horses in each class. And top of the line show horses! We pinned for the most part, but did get the gate a few times. It was tough competition, I'm not kidding. Like being at the Congress almost! But we came home with a lot of state points to give me good year end money at least. Paige also showed Friday in the Green Trail and in the Senior Trail. Placed under all three judges in both classes, that we were very happy about. So all in all, I'm very happy with how this complete show season has gone with my new trainer! Not letting her go! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI
Wow, The last time I was on to blog was in June! Boy have I been busy. Let's see if I can remember everything that's been going on lately.

1st: I've added several new categories for my supervisor duties! I'm now overseeing all of the horse breeds and pasture management areas. I'm going to add all of the Equestrian sports cat's as well.

2nd: I'm hunting a new paying job as my supervisory role is volunteer and I'm not paid for that job. I'm applying at some banks and credit unions near my house. If I have no luck with those places then there are some secretarial positions and paralegal positions open. I would be looking for V.A work, but right now they are only hiring techs and I do not have my boards as of yet.

3rd: I'm going to head back to college to get my Veterinarian Technicians degree and boards. I'm also looking at getting a degree in equine nutrition, might add a basic farriers class to that, and maybe a class for saddle fitting and business management. Not 100% sure what all I want to do yet or how much all of this will cost, but I can take it one step at a time.

4th: My Mema (age 84..Shhh, don't tell her I told you her age. ;D ) Slipped and injured her knee and might have to have it replaced. Nobody is happy about this as see wants to go back to working, she hates being at home with nothing to do.

5th: I completely threw my back out three different times in the past month and a half and have been utterly miserable. I haven't been able to ride at all, I can barely walk, but I am getting better slowly.

6th:I had Shawn's youngest son James for four weeks during the summer. Shawn had to work and I was home anyways with my bad back, so I kept him. It was just like being a nanny again, except he didn't go home at night, LOL. (There was no escape! No escape I tell you! XD)

7th:We lost one of old ferals. Snippy passed away a few weeks ago, leaving us with one much younger cat to care for. I miss Snippy, he was a good old guy.

8th: I'm incredibly tan, I'm typically so pale and pasty white that you could call me translucent! Not any more, LOL. The perks of living in a coastal town I guess, even an equestrians legs will get tanned down here, LOL.

9th: Although I am still on HC, I am now on Horseforum.com and chronicle of the horse forum daily as it's more interactive and I enjoy helping out and answering questions. If any of y'all are on there, feel free to look me up and send a friend request. I'm known as Horseychick87 on both forums. :)

I hope everyone is doing great and hope to hear from you soon. Lots of hugs, love and votes.

I am happy for you that you found a good home for Fatima, sending you hugs though, I bet it has been hard , letting Trigger and Fatima go, beautiful and sad in the same breath, looks like another beautiful week ahead, gonna be off line for about a week starting Friday, taking sometime off work to do a bunch of projects pre winter that I have a hard time squeezing in so I don't start complaining about not having them done before winter, had a really nice ride with Lilly on Saturday, took Sunday off to move irrigation around and keep my grandson for the day and night, Suz and Lilly

Yesterday was a better breathing day for my Sterly Girly. She has had this issue forever, actually she got a lung virus as a two year old when she raced. It was bad enough to end her racing career, she was pretty good, from a very good bloodline. But as Dr. Cook said it was never going to be a problem for what I wanted her to do. As a younger girl, she was a bit "weazy", but as a "old girl" it is down right difficult to breath, as always, she never complains. I swear if all horses were like her, everyone would have a horse.

this is a difficult time. after making arrangements for the transfer of my brother, he was found to be unresponsive and sent back to the hospital. michael is still struggling with his leg. the knee scooter they gave him can't be used because they wrapped his leg too high so he can't bend his knee! doesn't make any sense! he's supposed to start class this week and luckily was able to change all but one to online courses. on the bright side i rode sing today. also asked the parents of one of my students if they could help me unload some hay today. they said they would also go pick it up so i could use their truck and get more. then they surprised me by paying for nearly half of the 96 bales we picked up! talk about surprised!
