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)

Fancy
spent 3.5 hours in the ER yesterday evening with my youngest son Casey who's 23 had a screw in his foot, very painful but a really cool looking xray for what it's worth! no riding yesterday maybe this evening I hope ,don't think Lilly minded....had the weirdest thing happen last night, woke up around 10:30 with a really wierd gut feeling that I should pull the goat feeder out of the goat house that Lilly is always sneaking food out of , it has a two key hole shaped cut out face on it, that the goats stick their heads in and they don't get hay all over,so I followed that feeling when I went out she had been eating out of it and there was still a little hay left, she had rotated it so she could get in it better , I don't know why I had such a feeling to remove it come over me ? maybe it was a intuition that if she did it one more time she might get her head stuck in it or what ??? but I followed my gut and took it out, like I said it was the weirdest gut feeling and the fact it woke me up well, Always go with the gut !!......love Suz and Lilly

Come visit me, Lilly.

☆ Deacon and I had a wonderful trail ride at Lake Whitney Saturday. It started out cool at 60 but felt cooler. I started with a vest and jean jacket, and then went to just vest until 3 or so and then just my longer sleeved shirt-good ride with good friends!!! Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

Still working on getting the shed cleaned up. We went through it and saved most of the Christmas ornaments. Sadie had to go through them, too. She kept redumping them out. She found a big red bow she liked and dropped it in the mud. What a character. She's ate up with bug bites, Spraying doesn't really help. I feel so bad for her. Leaving a big hug and a vote.

We normally don't get much rain. We go for months without any. This summer has been anything but normal. The rain started Monday morning and hit us hard. We're okay, but the flooding in other places, did a lot of damage. Homes were flooded out, cars were buried up to their windows and the Interstate, 1-10, was flooded out and shut down in places. Never seen such a mess. Canals and sewers overflowed, too. A lot of people weren't able to make it to work and schools were closed. People were catching fish in the streets and in their yards. Leaving love and a vote. Thankful for God's hand of protection.

We really have had some crazy weather this summer, I'm sure I mentioned it before, I know everyone is afraid of something, my thing is STORMS, can't explain it, it comes over me like a wave, terrible anxiety, uneasiness, I pace, I can't relax, once we had a tornado lock down at work, it was not a pretty site, everyone I work with is now aware of my phobia. Today is suppose to be nice, as long as we ride around the puddles we will be OK. We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Oh, I'm just so happy-I FINALLY got to ride today-yay!! It's been well over two months since I really rode (don't count the 3 times I jumped on bareback for 10 mins). Not saying the horses were happy though. Bub decided to spook when he got bored, and started jigging around instead of going in a straight line all the while grunting and squealing when cantering. A couple of victory bucks after going through the ground poles grid then he settled, just had to get it out of his system. Not bad at all for no groundwork, or lunging all summer. Ella baby was perfect except swinging too wide at the turns almost causing my leg to rub the fence. Needless to say, my weekend is going great! Now....back to work! Thanks for not forgetting me in my workaholic absence! Hugs and carrots for all!!

Bad storm came through. Heavy rain and wind. Lost one of my sheds and a tree. What a mess. Power was out from 5:30pm until 1:40am. Sadie's fine. She's free until her corral dries up. Need to kiss the hay good bye, because it's suppose to storm all weekend. Got to buy a container for hay. Hope you're all well. Love and a vote.

Had a really nice family reunion at the coast, took Tuesday off also to lay down a product called Light Hoof, right out side the barn where it gets really Muddy, now Lilly and the goats will have there stable plus an extra 12-12 area out side that will stay dry, every muscle in my body hurts, but it will be worth it to not have them standing in muck, Hope your Friday- Tues was great while I was off line, Love Suz and Lilly

Happy Wednesday!
Rode Copper this morning. Western saddle. He did great! We did alot of loping on the left & right lead. Alot of changing directions at the trot also. When i was warning him up our neighbors horse whinnied. And Copper whinnied back to the horse. After our ride i dis mounted from his butt. That's my second time doing that & he did great! Side passing yesterday went good! Love & a Wednesday full of whinnies & votes!

How's it going? Are you able to ride again yet? Hope you're doing well and Fancy is adjusting to being at the center of attention.
Dove season started up around here sept 1 and it sounded like WW3 when I got home from work. By that time the horses had tuned it out and were grazing calmly, but I bet they had a heart attack when it first started. Just hope the hunters are sober and have good aim.
Hope you have a good Wednesday.

is it winter yet???
The thing with Sterly's breathing is due in part to scar tissue in her lungs from a respiratory virus years ago, that ended her racing career. Lungs don't regenerate. Over the years it has gotten a bit worse, at times like season change and high humidity and high UV. She is for sure a Canadian horse she loves her winter, bring on the cold. She looks like a grizzly bear and she can breath, does it get any better... Ventipulimin is a bronchodilator, it opens up the airways, it is used for horses that have COPD or heaves or even asthma, keep in mind that Sterly is not a complainer, so we have to watch her closely, what you will see is, flared nostrils and short quick shallow breaths, get her in where it is cool with the big fan on her and she settled back to normal within 10 minutes. I only use the meds if she can't settle on her own. I'm sure the Cushings does not help matters, 'cause she has all that extra hair...I trimmed her this summer, but this year it just grew back pretty much as soon as it was gone, I have to prepare, everyday I still have her is a blessing, Left a vote, Love Donna Lee

KICKING IS IMPROVING...
Well, let's see, Charlie is kicking much less, and with all the padding up, I feel better about less chance of injury. From his behavior under saddle I have to say he has NO UNSOUNDNESS, all is well. Sterly is plugging along she never complains, we keep a close eye this time of year, if she is laboring in her breathing we put her in with her big fan on, she usually settles within 10 minutes. If it is real bad I can give her a bit of Ventipulimin, but they can get dependent on it, so I only use it when necessary. We had a great ride yesterday before it got too hot, today is forecast for showers, sounds like vacuuming and laundry, ugh..we voted, Love Donna Lee
