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)

On Sunday I lunged Spangle. He did really well.

I also rode Rose bareback. I used very little rein the whole time. I also stopped Rose from a lope with no rein! It was a good ride.

Yesterday I had a lesson on Rose. I galloped her in our warm-up. She had a lot of energy. Then we worked on soft/slow work. We also did one dressage test:) It was a good ride.

I will be offline 7/30-8/9

I had to stop by the store, after work and buy another fly mask. Sassy Miss Sadie is rough on them. I don't like having to keep her beautiful face covered, but the flies here are bad. Got to keep her pretty eyes protected. Aren't horses some of the most gorgeous creatures? Love and a vote.

I did some groundwork with Allie yesterday morning: lunging, backing, and flapping a feed bag on her. She's coming along nicely. Rode BJ bareback in the evening. My balance is improving with the bareback riding so I'll try to do it from time to time, I'm just not very secure or comfortable with it.
Hope you have a good Sunday.

MY PROBLEM CHILD....
Good morning, first, I'm sorry if I missed anyone yesterday, HC has been so S L OW. It took forever to do my blogging. Second Cookie came around yesterday and did teeth, yippee, Sterly did not require the power float, she was looking good, he is generally p;eased with her, Charlie did well with his float also, however, my boy has developed a vice and I wonder if anyone has a suggestion....at night in his stall, he stands next to Sterly's half door and he kicks the wall (wood), it is hard to describe, not directly behind, but the wall that he is standing parallel to. I'll get a picture this morning and post it. Dr. Cook is worried, me too, that he will eventually injure his hocks, he does it on both sides, depending on which direction he is facing. HELP. David suggested fastening rubber matting to the wall to absorb the shock. Dr. Cook said, like any vice, it is sometimes very difficult to stop once they have made it a habit. We had a nice ride yesterday, hope to today before the rains come, all week....We voted, Love Donna Lee

Then to a BBQ for a short while and home to turn out Indy and Bullseye. So a lot in a day of running around for me. But had fun, so who cares! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi everyone! I've been at the fairgrounds this week cheering on my cousin in the horse and pony classes for 4H. My youngest daughter and I went to learn "the ropes" so she can show Bub and Bee next year. Even though I got my first horse when I was 8 yrs old, my parents wouldn't let me show, so all this is new to me. So this week have not rode at all because of getting home late and then the time chores are done, I'm pooped! I sit down to rest between 10-11 o'clock! My mind is to wound-up to go to bed, so got to watch TV and fold laundry to turn the brain off.

Been hot again with no rain, so off and on been using the sprinklers so hopefully do not loose the pasture yet again-every year since 2010 we have had to start all over.

Have a great night and weekend! Voted, of course.

On Wednesday I had a friend over for the night and for most the day on Thursday. She loves horses and used to have one so she knows how to handle/ride horses. We went riding Thursday morning with Misty and Sierra. My friend rode Misty and I rode Sierra. We rode around the fields on the tractor paths and back to the creek crossing. Misty went on through but Sierra didn't want to get her feet wet. I am planning to take her back there again soon to work on getting her to go across. We had a really fun ride and the mares were good. Later on we also rode Cherokee and Dakota bareback for a while. This morning I rode Sierra again and took her out around a large circular field near the farm. Around the bottom of the field it is dirt but there is corn planted around the top. We were trotting along on a loose rein around the dirt part when suddenly behind us something started crashing around in the corn field. Must have been a beef cow that got out. Sierra bolted into a dead gallop for a ways until we came to some tall brush and she swerved sharply back around. I just barely managed to hang on when she swerved. She settled right down again then and we went on our way around the field. We trotted some more and had a nice little lope. I was glad I was able to expose her to a "scary" situation. It seems like she has been getting bored working on circles and such in the pasture but she really seems to enjoy getting out and exploring new places. She has so far been doing really well not being barn sour or trying to get back to Misty. Any problems we encounter I am able to work her through pretty easily. I am still getting used to the fact that she is now my filly-I feel very lucky!
I have been working on Cheyenne's lunging and she has been doing really well. We are working on voice commands and reversing. She is catching on.
Hope your weekend is going great :)

Good Morning all, the forecast is for rain, grrrrr, it is suppose to be nice tomorrow. Charlie and I had a nice ride yesterday after work, it was not too hot, Charlie can't stand the flies, he gets so distracted, plus he is so thin skinned, they bite and he is such a baby. I have a bit of an update on Trevor, we are so happy, his Petscan was good, still shows lots of inflammation in neck and throat area, but they think that is residual from all the radiation, the lymph nodes are clear, that is good, right? His blood work was excellent and altho we understand that the tumor is still there, his oncologist says he is right where she wants him to be, next check up 3 months, hallelujah. Have a great weekend, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

She was so calm and really seemed to enjoy going to a new place. We rode over to Mike and Sue's place, rode a bit there, and rode back.

Hi Fancy, here's a vote for ya. Today was the triple H day, hazy, hot and very humid! But I got over to work with Paige at our trainers. She had just finished lungeing her when I got there and Paige was wet all ready. Then Marissa rode her and gave her a good tune up! She was not wanting to get off her right leg and just leaning on Marissa's spur, that stopped after a little talk! LOL! Then I got to ride the cool down period. But then Paige was out of gas and looking to just walk and hang her head. LOL! Got home really late and it was very buggie, so the boys stayed in with more hay and in front of double fans. They were happy! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hate Cushings!
About a third done clipping Nugget for the second time. Know anyone that buys horsehair? I clipped for an hour and a quarter today, then just had to stop. 99 yesterday and today 102, add 6 degrees in for heat index and it's been pretty miserable. Horrible humidity, no breeze. Hoping it's a bit nicer tomorrow when the vet comes out, at least we're supposed to have a breeze. To hot when I get done with her to even think about riding Cisco.
