FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, BORN TO SPOOK!!!

JACK-o-LANTERN
Jack-o-lantern, Jack-o-lantern,
You are such a funny sight.
As you sit there by the window,
Looking out into the night.
You were once a sturdy pumpkin,
growing on a curly vine.
Now you are a Jack-o-lantern,
See your night lights shine.

Fancy is leaving a superb Saturday vote.
Thanks for voting Scotty HOTD, his owner is visiting today and he will get treats & lots of attention today. Scotty has done many things. 3 years ago he was a kids horse. Since then he has participated in some parades and Buffalo Soldiers presentations. Every one seems to like him very much.
Fancy seems to like Scotty too much. The first evening with Scotty, I was not very happy! Fancy did not want to come to me and I thought Fancy was going to starve for not eating. Each day she gets closer to her normal self again. The only thing now, Fancy seems to be a little skiddish, which is not normal for my girl. I have taken her out on walks each day that Scotty has been here. I rode Fancy around the block yesterday and she was very good, but a little hyper to go. I stopped and took her bridle off to let her graze for a while too.
I have been dealing with horses for almost 20 years with plenty of horses and never had my toe stepped on. Well, guess what? Dog gone if Scotty didn't step on the tip of my boot Friday evening. I believe he was very aware of it too! Gonna work on his ground manners:~)
Any riding going on this weekend for you? If I get the opportunity, I better take it!

I went to the allergist Wednesday and we have to do more testing with the actual foods that I ate.
My friend sent her Appaloosa horse, Scotty, to stay with us for a while. Hopefully Scotty will be a good boy for my son to ride. We picked Scotty up Wednesday evening. I was not going to make a profile for Scotty, but my son is very excited and wanted Scotty to have his own page. LOL. I will post new photos to Scotty's page every now and then for my son.
It is perfectly fine if you don't worry to vote for King and Trigger's page or Scotty's page. I know how hard it is to keep up multiple pages. I will read all my blogs, but I don't think I will be able to read the blogs on each page EVERY day. If you have a message that I will need to see that day, please leave that on Fancy's page. I have so much going on lately, seems like most days, I only have enough time to leave a vote for your main page or only one of your pages.
I got a ride in with Fancy this morning. It was such a lovely morning.
You have a wonderful Friday:)

Today's photo was taken September 28, 2011. Fancy is performing the only trick that I know I have taught her. I say stump and she will put her front feet onto that old tree stump.

How was your weekend? We enjoyed a nice cool Carolina weekend here. Fancy's hooves had grown out and were beginning to chip, so I decided to try my hand at rasping. I had the tools for over a year, but I was afraid to try. I looked up how to trim hooves on youtube and I did it! I did as little as possible since it was my first time. Made my back hurt, but no more chipping hooves for now. I was very glad they didn't need to be trimmed, only shaped up. I tell you if you ever try it, you will appreciate a farrier with a strong back, LOL. Have you ever tried to do a horses hooves? If you have, how did you come out on the job?

Please view the video tribute in Horse Vidos: PIXIE DUST: IN MEMORY OF JOANNA, which was submitted by Pippin's family (profile #11626) In honor of our friends: Joanna Wicke her horses, Pixie Dust (profile #101958), & Brisco (profile # 140827), and her family.

Fancy is leaving a vote for you this Friday morning.

King Kong was very bad yesterday. King did not want to listen to my brother and my brother's friend wanted to help, so he got on King. While my brother's friend was riding King the horse reared and they fell back. He is ok, only suffered whiplash and soreness. We don't know what got into King. When he reared, there was no bit pressure at all. So he could have moved in any direction and he chose up :(

Fancy was very good. My son has ridden her. He has gotten bored riding in the corral, so we walk around the block and through the car wash. My son loves to ride her. He would like me to turn him lose. But I don't think Fancy or my son are ready for that. Because she is still very young and I know my son does not have experience in case something did frighten her. But so far she has been so wonderful on his rides out. I don't take that for granted and I pray that she remains steady.
What are you up to on the last Friday in September?

Fancy & I love all of our HorseChannel friends and we hope you guys will stop by her page to vote each day in October so Fancy can be your November HOTM.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"If all the world were ours to give, would we give it?"

Fancy and Frances are leaving a vote for your beautiful horse today.
Everything that I did with Fancy Wednesday, I dedicated to Joanna's memory.
When Fancy walked to meet me at the gate, I thought about Pixie and Brisco not being able to see their loved friend meet them at the gate again. As I picked out Fancy's hooves all I could think about was Pixie Dust and Brisco. Wondering if they understand the absence of the constant source of love in their life.
As I worked cleaning Fancy's corral, I thought of my granddad telling me once, "The empty wagon cries the loudest." I asked him, "Granddad, what in the world does that mean?" And he explained to me, if I listen, I will hear that a wagon bearing a full load makes very little to no sound. And the wagon that is empty creeks and squeaks loudly. He explained to me how people are like the wagons. Yesterday I thought of Joanna and I felt like the empty wagon. She never once complained, she was always positive, she loved reading of Fancy's adventures.
After reading her memorial posted on Cross Creek Horses page, I suddenly understood why she loved Dancing With the Stars so much.
This young lady had such an awesome spirit! And we never knew how awesome she really was. But Pixie Dust knew this as she visited Joanna during her illness. What a loving and special little horse. God Bless Pixie Dust, she is truly an Angel on Earth.

"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out" (Walter Winchell)

Fancy's sliding by in the mud to leave you this Tuesday vote. We hope your holiday weekend was most delightful. Did you enjoy any horsey time? We did nothing here this weekend. Now it is raining off and on☁

Lots of friends asked how I began to teach Fancy to lay down. Here is my comment on that.
1. First you teach the horse to let you handle his front feet. You teach them to let you hold that foot up for long as you want to with out taking it back.
2. Rope breaking helps. I mean throwing the rope all around their body, head, and legs till they are in no way fearful or uncomfy with that feel and touch.
3. You need 2 SOFT ropes. Don't tie, but loop one around the horse's front near pastern (ankle area), you will use this to hold the hoof up only, Make sure this rope never gets tight because it may slow or stop blood flow.
4. Second SOFT rope attaches to the halter as usual, except you run it between the front legs to the off side of your horse and across the back to lay on the same side of his body as the leg you are going to lift.
5. Lift the foot using the rope that is around that foot. Hold still until he is o.k. with that. Hold the foot up at the point that it touches the belly. No tighter than necessary and don't tighten as you go.
6. Teach the bow. Grab the rope that is attached to the halter it should lay just behind the withers and pull slowly and softly until he gives with his nose. His head will tip slightly then he is ready for a bow. He should go back and downward until his knee touches the ground. You have to know your horse. Let him up before he gets upset. Just in case he lays all the way down at this point, keep in mind, which ever way his nose tips is the direction his feet will lay. Stay clear of his feet so you don't get kicked.
7. If he lay down from the bow, you want to rub all over him before he gets up and tell him how great he is!
8. If he didn't lay down from the bow on his own, redo the bow and hold in the bow position and he should lay down. You may need to slightly increase the pressure with the rope that is across his withers. But remember to be very gentle. He should lay down. Depending on the horse, it may take a few times to get all the way down.


Look up Ken McNabb on the internet, his method is very gentle.
I also learned that you do not want to ride a horse up from the ground until it is over 5 years old because it's bones are still growing and you can damage it's developing bone structure, which could lead to future problems.
If I confused you, let me know or look it up on the internet. I hope this has helped.

Also if you know something that will help me with this, please leave me a blog about it!

“He who opens a school door, closes a prison.” (Victor Hugo)

We are laying down your Tuesday vote.

Thanks to all of you who helped with my bareback mounting problem. I tried two suggestions, the first method: I don't seem to have enough upper body or arm strength to make it. The second method: I wound up kicking Fancy in the hip/side. I did not like that and I can't blame her if she didn't like it either. But she stood there and I figured if I did that too many times she would be very unhappy with me.
The technique of laying her down was also suggested. Thus, Fancy doesn't have to endure my feet kicking her in the hip.
I viewed some youtube videos on how to teach your horse to lay down. I tried to pick the gentlest techniques I saw and combined them.
Fancy had her first lesson on laying down Monday evening. I could not believe she did it on the 2nd try. We repeated this 3 times and since she was so nice about it, I handwalked her around the neighborhood and let her graze. She really enjoyed that!
Teaching her to lie down has always been something that I felt was too much for me to handle. I couldn't believe we did it. I think once Fancy fully understands, it will be like a fun trick!!! It is not hard as I thought it would be, but it would have been easier if I had taught it when she was smaller. Have you ever taught a horse to lie down?

Fancy is trodding by with a Sunday vote

Saturday was the first time I rode Fancy with her Boa boots on. I figured I would try to get the gators on with the boots. I worked up a sweat, but I got those gators on. One was on better than the other, but I will get it better the next time, I just need lots of practice. I rode Fancy in the corral bareback and then saddled her and rode around the neighborhood. I noticed that bareback riding has improved her response to my leg pressure. She is much better on the leg yields and side passes when bareback. Then I noticed she was better under saddle. We went into the woods just a little way. She was doing great. I didn't notice her lifting her feet anymore than usual. But I tell you those boots sound real funny when her feet hit the ground. They kind of plunk down. LOL. Fancy was really hyper and wanting to go. Finally she settled down and that was relaxing.
After our ride we practiced her walking with me for showmanship or what ever. And I told her to stand and I walked in front of her and I wanted her to be still. When I stopped in front of her, she put her nose straight out to me and gently blew into my nose, like when we greet each other when I go out to her. I was thinking, you can't do that if we enter a show, so be still, but she was so sweet and cute, I could not correct her. I just softly blew back and rubbed her face. I don't care of she does that in a show. We would only be at a show for fun and I will be lucky if she gives me her attention with all the new stimuli at the shows. I need her to trust me, so that I will not punish her for. I will just love her because she deserves that and more.
Fancy and I hope you are enjoying a lovely & Blessed weekend.

The Horse
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
(Ronald Duncan, "The Horse," 1954)

I tried the bareback mounting again yesterday. Didn't work out. So I used the tractor tire again. Once mounted, Fancy listened very well. We walked around in the corral and even did some leg yields. It was so much fun!

Friday evening we spent in the yard doing nothing at all. Fancy grazing, Hollie playing, and me, just watching. Hollie went into Fancy's corral and came back with one of Fancy's toys. Hollie ran around tossing and playing with it, then she would run really fast. She was running toward us so fast that she ran right into Fancy's rear end. Fancy didn't even flinch. She just kept right on munching grass. It was funny to see Hollie collect herself after that one.

Many of you already do this, but I finally got up my nerve to do something different. I rode Fancy bareback for a few minutes. She was very lazy, but that is because we were in the coral. I did not worry for her laziness, because she did not buck me off, which I was very happy for and appreciated :~)
This was the first time in over 10 years that I have ridden bareback. I have never been able to mount without assistance. Can anyone help me to know how to mount without a block or something. I tried to jump up, that did not work. I tried to use her neck. That did not work. How do you do it? What do I need to do?

Fancy is enjoying some cooler, cloudy moments through these hot days.

Monday afternoon, I happened to look out the back door, to see Fancy flipping something up and down. I went to see what it was. The first time she has gotten her fly mask off. It is the one with the velcro that folds back to fasten twice. I wonder how she did it. She saw me coming and she was going to show her new found skills of flipping and tossing her fly mask. I told her no and she looked disappointed, but she did not pick it up. LOL.

We had a fun ride yesterday evening, I rode Fancy and my son accompanied on his bike. There were a few folks mowing yards with both push mowers and riding mowers. I was surprised. All of them that was close to the front yard, like near the road, they stopped mowing and turned the mower of as we approached them. I was hoping Fancy would get to walk by with the mowers running. I thanked them and told them it was ok, I wanted her to hear and see the running mowers long as they weren't chasing us. LOL! This one lady ran home to stop her dog, which was tied close to the edge of the road, from barking as we passed. I told her to let the dog bark. It is good for Fancy to see and not be afraid. This lady just moved her from Florida where she worked grooming Clydesdale horses. She said they were easily frightened. So she thought my horse would be. We talked for a while and her kids met and petted Fancy. We met another new neighbor from Tennessee, whom said she used to help a friend with horses and ride them. And we visited our old neighbors too.

Fancy is munching her way by with a vote from our stormy town. I am hoping that today is our last day of storms for a little while. I don't mine the rain, but we need some sunshine to.
It has been several months now that Fancy has shown a new behavior, that I did not teach her. Whenever she is locked in her stall, after I unlatch her stall gate, she takes her nose and pushes the gate open, then waits for me to enter with her wheelbarrow load of hay. I was very surprised when I saw she was not trying to escape. She just wanted her hay and she was happy. Believe it or not, this seems to help because I don't have to worry for opening the gate. I just roll that wheelbarrow right on in there and empty it. LOL! I wonder if she would do it if I had my camera man on hand, hmmmmm.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"A little boy's place, is on his mommy's horse" (Fancy's mommy)

Fancy is finally back with your Tuesday vote.
Monday night I sat down to vote for our friends and it started to thunder, so I had to shut the computer down. Sunday night I sat down to vote for our friends and I was soo tired, I just couldn't make it. So to bed, I went. Finally, looks like we are going to get the voting done!

My young son, has ridden Fancy for several days now. Everyday he ask to go out and ride. Reminds me of times when he was just old enough to speak. When his little eyes would open in the morning, first thing he would say,"I want my ridie.) Ridie is what he called the palomino pony he rode. He would ride that little palomino pony long as you would lead them around. And never wanted to go in. History repeats itself, I ask him, "are you ready to get down?", and he says,"No, I want to ride." Pity, we only have one horse now. But we will make it work. Hopefully we go to look at saddles today. This child has outgrown his saddle.
I made a video of him and Fancy, I will load it soon. Fancy just walked so slow with him and every now and then she would stop. I told him he has to make her keep walking. He is working on that. The more he rides her, the better she listens to him. Fancy gave him the sweetest hug after he dismounted. I hated I missed that photo. Since she sometimes walk so fast, I only let him ride her in the corral, because she walks lazy in the corral.
Oh, we did have a moment of excitement. Fancy heard something in the woods and she spooked with him. It frightened me, but he remembered the one rein stop and he did stop her! Very well, at that! And he said it didn't frighten him. I was glad. A few minutes later, two adult foxes and two juvenile foxes ran into Fancy's corral from the woods behind her stall. Since I know Fancy will stomp at them, I took him off her. She stood with us very calmly and didn't even pay the foxes any attention. The foxes stopped and looked at us and finally they turned back and ran into the woods. And Hollie, ran into the corral, ALONE, and Fancy let her stay there! What a doll;~)
Well, that is how things are here for now. They are keeping me very busy!
Summer is on now, time for fun! Stay safe and don't forget to share your fun with us.

Here is your vote from Fancy.
We have enjoyed a few mild days with no rain, however, here it comes again. I just finished working in my flower garden while Fancy watched me and she pawed the dirt, (like she was imitating my digging and planting, guess she was helping, LOL!) now we can use the rain to help these flowers grow.
You have a blessed and peaceful night.

A Sunday evening vote from Fancy has just been delivered♥
I think Fancy will be at or close to 100% at least by Tuesday. She sure did enjoy some watermelon today. That is one of her favorite treats.
Have a blessed & peaceful night.

Fancy and Frances are grazing on by with a 'late night Fancy's feeling pretty good vote!'

Fancy is almost 100% herself again this evening. I have learned some valuable lessons during this new and trying experience. I have had horses for almost 20 years and this is the first time I have ever needed or used bute. Fancy has her craving for attention and action back now. I loved spending time with her, watching her playfulness this evening. I guess I will finally get some sleep tonight. I thank everyone for prayers and information. You guys are the greatest:~)

Fancy has a Saturday vote for you:~)
Have you ever seen dogs lick and chew on your horses lower legs. Hollie does this, I was wondering why. I tell Hollie no, because I do not know if Fancy will kick at her. It looks quite irritating.
