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)



PEACE STARTS WITH A SMILE;~)

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.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Thanks Sing & Herd for #9300!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, #13700 Thanks Bella Boo/DC & MWS Zippn By Indy, Tkx Cisco & Herd for #17700!.

WHOO HOO vote 31,600!
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.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Thanks Sing & Herd for #9300!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, #13700 Thanks Bella Boo/DC & MWS Zippn By Indy, Tkx Cisco & Herd for #17700!.

I put Sadie's fly spray in a different bottle, because the original bottle broke. For some reason, she didn't mind being sprayed. It's smells strong. hoping it'll last on her through tomorrow. Lots of love always and a vote.

♡ I had another wonderful ride on Whiskey. Walk trot canter then settled into a nice walk. I let him graze a little as well. I was going to take Deacon but his left eye was swollen so I doctored it and let him rest. If it is not swollen after work I will ride him today…if I’m not too tired lol ♥ Have a wonderful day :)

CHARLIE IS A STAR.....
Good morning, I worked 5 hours of OT yesterday. I feel like this cold is coming back, it has settled on my chest, I'm actually barking...today my Charlie will be the *STAR* the man I bought him from 6 years ago is going to come over for a visit. He loved Charlie as much as me, and when I bought him, he said, "I know Charlie is going to a home where he will be loved, that is all I want for him" I got him all buffed up last night, what do you bet he rolls in the mud before he gets here....Love that horse, have a great day, Love & votes Donna Lee

Pyranha Spray and Wipe is great, but Sadie doesn't like it. She always stands still when I spray her down but not with this stuff. I have to follow her around and spray when I can. I accidentally spilled some on my hand. The spray nozzle broke when it fell off the top of my dryer. Took about 7 hand washings, a shower and shampooing my hair to get most of it washed off. Using a glove next time. Love and a vote.

It rained at the beginning of the week, which meant no riding. I lunged Rose once this week. I also rode her tonight. We just rode around and had a relaxing ride. It was good:)

I have entered Rose in the costume contest! The picture is also the first one below my blogs. We are dressed up as Kristof and Sven from Disney's Frozen! We won 1st place at our playday dress up contest.

Cisco had a spa day yesterday, Meg today and Nugget tomorrow. Got all 3 worked before I ran out of steam. Cisco was, I thought, being funny yesterday when he grabbed the washcloth (I use it to clean his face and forelock) and then it started disappearing. I managed to grab the end and won the tug of war. Wouldn't have wanted to explain to the vet that he swallowed a washcloth!

A day off sure goes by fast, doesn't it? The weather is beautiful, a little chilly at night. Living in the desert makes 60* seem chilly, Lol. Sadie's good. I sprayed her down with fly spray and let her out for a short while. Should be able to ride soon. Have to call the farrier out first. Love to each of you and a vote.

thanks for voting for me and godiva in the costume contest! all votes appreciated. :)
my little 4 yr old boy rider came back for another pony ride on godiva this week. his mom said he's very shy, introverted and has never done any sports or activities. I'm so privileged that he loved riding godiva and she signed him up for a weekly pony ride! he told me tonight, "Godiva is my best friend." how blessed am I?? makes all the bratty kids melt away into dim memory. lol.

Got Cisco bathed today, finally. He doesn't like water in his face (can't blame him) so I do his face and forelock with a washcloth. He grabbed it and was waving it around, it was funny till it started disappearing. I barely won the tug of war. Wouldn't have liked to explain that to the vet!

Here's a vote from Buddy! It's been a little while since we've been on to blog and vote again. I was planning on coming on last week during my days off but my sister suprised me and came to visit, so I was busy busy busy!

An update on everything going on with me since I last blogged… We didn't get the house we were looking at renting, but that's okay! I also haven't found a new job, and that's okay too. Especially since if I'm not working at the barn I cannot live in my current place! I still haven't "ridden" Buddy per say. I've tried to ride him with his normal saddle pad that he likes and he was still a little off-ish so today or tomorrow I'm going to try bareback, and just a halter. I think his teeth need to be done, but I need money first before I can get them done. Rob is planning on selling his quad so hopefully he will pay for Buddy's teeth!

I've also found what I believe are splints on Buddy's legs. I went to pick out his feet the other night, and while running my hand down his leg I came across a hard bump, so I had Lynn look at him as well and she told me they feel like splints and to keep an eye on them. I also talked to my aunty about it and she told me to rub castor oil on the bumps a few times a day. So hopefully they do not get any worse!

The weather here has been getting cooler, but we have still had a few warmer days. I hope everyone has been getting some horsey time in!

-Buddy & Jasmine

Hi Frances & Fancy, hope you're having a great week! The craziness of tax season is finally over! I went out and saw Koot last night and he ran and ran showing off for some other horses lol. He was enjoying the cooler weather we've been having. Fall has finally arrived! It's been about 70-75 during the day and 60s at night. I love this time of year :) Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot
