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;~)

BACK TO MY REGULAR SELF....
Good morning, it has been a week Friday since the colic. This morning I can report my good old boy is back....he is eating enthusiastically again and I'm so happy, thanks for the prayers. The nutritionist is coming out next week to discuss his diet in detail. We had enough snow yesterday that David had to use the snow blower to clear the driveway, this is just wrong, have I ever mentioned how much I hate winter? Have a great weekend, Love and a vote, Donna Lee

The weather here is beautiful. 70's and 80's during the day, 50's overnight. Frustrated, because I've been so busy and haven't had time to ride. Not good for Sadie or me, even though she hasn't complained. Love and a vote. Have a beautiful weekend.

Here's a vote from Buddy! It's a chilly day here, -25 Celcius, -31 with the windchill!

A lot has happened since we've blogged last, and it's happened pretty fast too. My fiance got a job offer in a little town we both like named Grande Cache. So at the end of the month we are moving there. We found a house about a day after he got the job, and went to see it and sign the lease last week, which is why I didn't make it on to blog like I had hoped. After everything was signed and official I gave my notice to my boss and told the barn owner, which was a sad moment.

Now where does this leave Buddy? Well, of course he's coming with me. But of course there's always that one thing that is harder to figure out then others when you move, and in this case it's horse boarding. In Grande Cache they have no stables. What they have is two different saddle clubs, one on either end of town where a person has to purchase a barn on the property and become a member, so that is what I may be doing! If not, I have one person I can call that does horse boarding at their trail riding place. So hopefully I can figure it out before the end of the month, if not, Buddy will be at Amberlea for a little while longer while I rack my brain to get it done.

Buddy has been good, we've been lunging here and there. But now that it's snowed outside we haven't done much lunging as I don't like to do it while people are riding in the arena, as Buddy doesn't like to stop when asked all the time! But that is something we are working on and he's starting to get it, so I am happy with that!

I hope everyone has been good, and has been getting some horsey time in, and I hope that the weather has been co-operating with you all and that you don't have snow like we do!

-Buddy & Jasmine

CHARLIE IS FEELING BETTER....
This has been a tough couple of days. This was a nasty inpaction colic, Charlie was definitely down and out. Remember I'm not a MOM so it was so hard to watch, I did everything Dr. Cook told me to do. His blood work came back good, he was quite well hydrated, and his fecal was negative. Charlie is so sensitive and oh yeah, quite dramatic, it just broke my heart to see him so uncomfortable. Funny how horses can be so different, Sterly is such a survivor, Charlie is such a baby. I love them both. This morning at breakfast I can say, he looks a lot better, I think he is on the mend, you bet I'll be watching very close today. Dr. Cook blames our crazy weather, fluctuation in temperatures are so hard on them, God know I do everything possible to prevent this sort of thing, but I can't control the weather....have a great weekend, Left a vote, Love Donna Lee

On Sunday night, I lunged Spangle. He was a little bit cranky with putting his head down, but he did really well for not being worked for a while.

I had a dressage lesson yesterday. We worked more on circles and correct form. We also worked on flexing to leg. Afterwards my legs hurt:) It was a good lesson. Before the lesson, I bought a dressage girth from barn owner/my old trainer(The trainer I rode with before changing to the dressage trainer) I like it:)
