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, left a vote. Had the best ride on Amber today! We left the property for the first time ever and she was a rock star! So proud of her! 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. We went with a friend from the barn, it was her first time off the property too, they rocked it as well!

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.

Here's a vote from Buddy! It's been a little while since we've blogged again, but that's because we have been busy busy! There was the Summer Dressage Festival this weekend, and the previous weekend was the Novice Rider Development show. Coming up on the 25th & 26th is the RCMP Musical Ride, and the RCMP horses arrive at the barn on Wednesday! The last weekend of this month is the Jump For Hope for Kids With Cancer Show. The only thing that didn't happen that the barn was planning for was the Cavalia horses coming to stay, they stayed somewhere else before they came to Edmonton.

In other news I FINALLY rode Buddy after he bucked me off twice that last time I rode him. I put pictures up of it! He's wearing his new saddle pad and fly bonnet that my fiancé bought for me! And, my fiancé and I adopted another pitbull yesterday, she's currently on a trial to see how she will get along with our other dog, and so far she is doing okay so we are hoping it will work out! If not we will have to take her back, but if that happens, they will try and match us up with a dog that will get along with Harley.

Annie had her baby on Friday morning, so now both babies are here. Annie had a filly, and they have named her Redina, I have put up some pictures of her on Buddy's page. I will try and get my other pictures of Bentely to upload, but I think I have to resize them first.

I'm hoping now that I've ridden Buddy again I will get back into it and things will go well and I'm hoping that I can ride him at least once or twice a week until I leave for BC at the end of August for the 2 weeks. I hope everything has been going well with all of you guys and you have gotten a lot of horsey time in!

My show this weekend went ok. Rose and I had a pretty bad day. We had a lot of mistakes, but we were able to correct them. So we then just had bad times instead of "no times". We still got Reserve out of 3:) The 3rd place had one "no time" It wasn't too bad of a day. I still enjoyed it.

Yesterdays riding lesson with the little girls went well. They both wanted to ride at the same time so I saddled both Cherokee and Dakota for them to ride. They were both good boys and behaved themselves. The little girls had a lot of fun and didn't want to leave when it was time to go! They liked Cheyenne too, thought she was very pretty and wanted to ride her too. Nope she's too young I told them! Not much going on today, it finally got hot out and I got to lounge in the pool for a while. Supposed to be hot tomorrow too so I am going to try to get some riding in in the early morning. Have a great Sunday evening!

RAIN, RAIN GO AWAY!!! Nothing but the rain going on here. Everyday this past week it has rained and more expected this week. We had 5 and 1/2 inches on Friday, the pasture was flooded. Water has gone down now. Farrier did the horses hooves on Thursday. I had a pretty scary experience on Tuesday. I was headed to work and right before I made it there I started feeling strange. I made it to work but felt really hot, sweating and dizzy. I couldn't get out of my truck. I called the office for help. They sent the EMT's out to check on me. Called an ambulance and rushed me to the emergency room. I was diagnosed with heat exhaustion and dehydration. Needless to say I have been drinking lots of water and GatorAde now. That was scary!! Leaving a vote for ya.

DROPPED BY TO SAY HELLO
Remember about my luck...well, we just got all tacked up ant started out to the ring, and yup, you guessed it, rain, what gives, it was just spitting, so we stayed out for half an hour anyway. The rest of the day was off and on drizzle. That is not what the the weatherman said. David made the letters out of feed tub lids and screwed them on to stakes, I'll tell him you all think it looks good. Charlie and I started dressage a couple of summers ago, remember I didn't ride last summer due to my arm, hope we have a good season this year. I can't afford a lesson every week, so I bought some MP3 download lessons from Jane Savoie's website, they are super. Talk soon, Love Donna Lee

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.....
Good Morning all, I managed to get thru the first week after vacation. The weather was just stupid this week, cold mornings, warm afternoons, HOT late afternoons and 3 days of showers in the late afternoon. I said before this full time job is gettin' in my way of fun time. No ride this week, and had to be careful of the rich grass because of the humid and wet conditions. We will have a ride this morning before it gets hot. Then maybe run the vacuum over and sit is the sun with a book, eh, sounds good to me. We voted today, Love Donna Lee

Hi Fancy, here's a vote for ya. Today we woke up to 55 degrees, made the mistake of walking down to the barn in just a tee shirt, about froze! LOL! Good thing the barn was nice and warm. Today was their day off of working and riding. Left my time frame open to go and get Indy's grain, it came in. And also more gas for the lawn tractor. Came home, turned them out and went to mowing, got the lawn done and all around the indoor done. Of course Paige went to running like a fruit cake and loosened up that same shoe! Why would he only use 4 nails, when the regular farrier uses 6!!! So now we have only 3 holding it on. But Jason will be at Marissa's on Monday and Paige leaves for a boot camp tune-up on Sunday. So she'll be done right, new shoes all around. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

We have been having surprisingly low temps here this summer. Some days it feels more like fall! Right now its only 64 degrees and feels kind of chilly out. Not our typical hot, humid July weather! It looks like it may start getting warmer this weekend though. This morning Ethan woke me up at 4:00 am and said the horses are out! The gate was open for some reason and they were out grazing. I put some feed in a bucket and got them back in without any trouble. Last Saturday some people my aunt knows came to her place and their 2 little girls wanted to ride so I rode Dakota over for them to ride. They had a lot of fun and Dakota behaved himself. They will be coming out to my aunts every Saturday(they are keeping calves at my aunts) and their mom wants to pay me to give them riding lessons. So we will see how it goes! Any tips for what all I should teach them? I have done my 3 driving classes so now I need to wait 6 months and get my 40 hours of practice in before I can try to get my license. I drive to and from church and I am starting to enjoy driving. Got to go now, hope you all have a great weekend!

I called my vet's office. Again & received an appointment with Dr. Laura Waitt, a vet i hadn't used previously. It just so happened that she completed her residency in internal medicine. Despite Dave's atypical PSSM symptoms, Dr. Waitt recognized the presence of PSSM almost immediately. Muscle biopsies confirmed the diagnosis of PSSM.
