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)

♥ Feeling better each day about returning to my horsey world totally again! I rode Whiskey bareback for a bit after work. With the time change coming this weekend it will put an end to evening riding so I want to take advantage of it while I can. Right at dark guess what we smelled? Yep~ a skunk …oh boy-Cliff did not look to happy. It was year before last we had a skunk problem. Needless to say he put Rain (our JRT) in the house lol and out came the gun. He did get that one but there is another one I told him He said “why did you say that?” I said “because the one I saw the other day had a whole lot more white on it”….I believe I will have a few more skunk stories for you in the next few days !!! Have a wonderful day :)

☆ Of course the wedding was beautiful and I am glad it is over though. This year with the wedding, merging of 3 hospitals systems at work and all the normal makings of life I am smooth wore out! I did ride Sunday & Monday and rested some. Now, time to get in gear for winter. We will pick up 100 bales of hay & 7 round bales next week. We are setting up the deicer in the tub and have it ready for whatever type of freezing weather that may come along. I will also go back to my riding schedule (hopefully) and get them boys in good shape. Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

Here's a vote from Buddy! We've been busy busy lately! Busy with work, and busy preparing for Tuesday. Tuesday I have an interview for a casual position as a unit clerk at one of the hospitals here. Finally! I'm so excited, but nervous at the same time.

Buddy has been good. And actually yesterday we had my aunty Karen come out. Aunty Karen is an animal communicator, so after I was finished work yesterday she came out to read Buddy for me. Apparently he was quite excited that I finally asked her to help him talk to me and listen to what he had to say. She wrote a blog about our visit (http://www.animalwhispers.net/blog/buddy) but, for those of you who believe in this sort of thing, in a nut shell, our visit was very good. I learned a lot that I had wanted to know. Buddy didn't understand why he went from being at the ranch to being here at the barn in a stall until she told him that he moved to the barn to be with me, and he gets to see me everyday. His home is where I am, wherever that may be. He told her that he doesn't like my saddle (I thought he did,) so I am going to tackle that issue after I get his teeth done. He told her that yes, he indeed does need his teeth done, and things will be alot better when they get done, and I myself need to be a more confident rider. He also said I should try a therapeutic pad, so I am now on the hunt for one that I can try out. He also wanted to let me know that he figures he would be good at an obstacle course kind of thing. I believe that is called trail classes? I could be wrong, but I don't know much about it. It's something I will have to look into.

I'm hoping I will be able to get on more this week and blog again. The weather here has taken a turn, it's started to snow, and sort of rain. More rainy then snowy. I hope everyone has been getting some horsey time in!

-Buddy & Jasmine

LEFT A VOTE, THANKS FOR YOURS
We had a great day as HOTD, thanks for all the votes and visits. We are looking forward to another nice fall day today. The leaves are so beautiful, the colors are amazing this year, we are pretty much surrounded by woods so it is very pretty here. Just a quick update on Trev, he has decided that he is ready for work again. He started a new job last week, he likes it. It is an adjustment for sure. The only problem we see is transportation, he is riding his bike (he doesn't drive) in the AM, he starts at 7, it is an hour bike ride, the bus service doesn't go that far that early, however he can bus home at night, the city buses have bike racks. He is hoping to meet someone at work that he can catch a ride with, maybe someone close to his area. We really hope so, this travel arrangement will not work in winter...Have a great day, Love Donna Lee

My yard light went out during the last storm. I had it put up, a few years ago, so Sadie's corral would stay lit up at night. I ordered a replacement bulb, because I couldn't find one. Hope that's all I need. I still go out to check on Sadie. Can't see if there are snakes or scorpions. She's worth the risk. Love and a vote.

Hi Fancy, here's a vote for ya. Glad that you finally were able to ride! Yippy! Thank you for visiting H.t. Rain heavy over night, then on and off all day. More coming in tonight and could be really heavy at times! And yes, all day tomorrow too! But I did get Paige to the Indoor arena and lunged her and did more showmanship work with her. Didn't do anyone else. Was both too nasty out and I'm a little down with today being Angel H.T. 3 year Un-Happy Anniversary of crossing over the Rainbow's Bridge. He was a big part of my show life for 18 years! He could be a pain, but he had more character than any horse I've ever owned! Do miss him terrible! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Fancy, here's 31,600th vote for ya. Tomorrow, 10-22 is the Anniversary of Angel H.T. passing to the Rainbow's Bridge. Please vote his page, if only blogging on one page, do it on his in memory of a great show partner that he was! Love you H.T. and miss you everyday! Rain to start the day, but warmer. Then clouds and sun. Got a lot more outside things done to be ready for winter. Also got Paige lunged and did showmanship and free lunged Indy. Then it was Bullseye turn to play inside. Got all four stacks of wood covered today and are working on splitting the 1/2 cord or more in the driveway. Busy Busy! Watched a few hours of Youth 14 to 18 Showmanship on the computer from the Congress, Marissa's student Alyssa made the finals out of over 200 entries in her class. But didn't make the final 20 for placings. But just to be in the top 40 out of over 200 is awesome! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
