HI! I wanted you to see how cute the winner of our costume contest is so I loaded some pix at the bottom of Fancy's page. The first place winner is the very first photo there. Look quick because I will have to delete those photos soon ")

I also entered Fancy in the HorseChannel costume contest. If you have time, please vote for Fancy each day. I know it is a bit much to ask right now because I am off line soooo much.
I am trying to get straightened out. I have yet another hurdle to cross. This Friday September the 27 I am having my first carpal tunnel release surgery. Soon as it heals, I am expecting to have the procedure on the left wrist. I will be offline Friday and off and on line depending on how my hand or wrist feels and if I am woke because I will be taking my pain meds. I have grown into a huge wimp when it comes to pain.
I have no idea how the coming days will be for me. I plan to be back with you soon. Fancy misses sharing her regular perceptions with you ♥

♛ Cowboy and Trigger were proud to bring the new year in with you! It was a special treat for them. Last night Cowboy told his dad that today is their last day of HOTM. As their time in the spotlight comes to an end Cowboy & Trigger send the BIGGEST THANKS ever for your support ♥

Feelin better, I am vertical again. It is hard to find good medicine. I guess some things just have to run their course. Still have the headache and feeling congested, but I am up :)

Into the new year with COWBOY & TRIGGER, the Young Prince & King of January 2013 ♛

Here is a wintery vote for you! It is getting cold in NC!
A few months ago I began a part time job. Well, that is more like full time now. As you have noticed my irregularity on HC, I am pressed for time and energy. Lately, I have fallen asleep at the computer and I don't know how I have not fallen out of this chair. LOL! When I am mentally and physically able, I will leave a vote for each of your profile pages. There may be several times that I will only vote for one page. If you have a preference as to which page I leave the main vote on, please let me know and I will try to do that for you.

Trying to do many things is wearing me down. There have been so many things that have crossed my mind that I wanted to mention or ask you about, but by the time I get to my blog, I can not remember those things. I am going to try and write things down before I forget them.

After church today Young Cowboy and I finally enjoyed HorseTime! Most of my time was taken removing mudd from horses, but I enjoyed every minute! Finally to ride! I did not ride Saturday with friends because I had not ridden in weeks and I do not like to take Fancy out when I have not worked with her.
Young Cowboy is very excited for his 12th birthday tomorrow!
The changes to HC are very nice. I am happy to see it does not look like we have lost any friends here.
Well, I better hurry to bed, we have another big day coming :)

17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
18 "A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."

No ride today, it was very chilly and windy :(

Does anyone remember reading last month, about a nationwide Ride to Remember Veterans during Veteran's Day weekend, Nov. 10-11, 2012? How would you guys like to have our own HorseChannel ride in honor of Veteran's Day? We can chose one day that we all will ride on, even if it is only for a few minutes or just to sit on the horse during the Veteran's holiday. Then we could share our pics from that day and share our story of the day. If you agree would Sunday November the 11 be ok for our ride date?

November is a time of thanks. Thanks should be part of our every day lives all year long. Let us be thankful for our friends and loved ones. Let us be kind one to another. Cruelty has no place among true friends.


HAVE A PEACEFUL NIGHT ✞

A special Thanks to Continetals Mystery for nominating Fancy for HOTD. Thank each of you who have left a vote on Fancy's page or even only visited to see what she was up to. Some of you wonder why I am so busy on HC each day possible. HC is a place where I can share the love of my horse with people who think like me. Many of you watched Fancy grow up, right here on HC. Every day is a new adventure for each of us and I enjoy sharing our adventures with you and reading of your adventures. In the knowledge of knowing that nothing last forever, I try not to take my horse for granted, but to celebrate my horse, Fancy Walk N That Way.

I will share the news of HOTD with Fancy. Maybe the rains will rest long enough for Fancy and I to enjoy a few minutes in her honor. I am breaking out extra Bucking Balls and I better stop at the store for apples!

Please keep telling other hc members that I am so sorry if I don't vote for them! You guys have been such good help! Thank you! Love all of my hc friends!

Little Cowboy and Trigger did have a wonderful day. After church Little Cowboy let Trigger graze in the back yard before a last ride of summer break from school. They walked a few blocks up and shared their last ride with little girls and boys up the street. I think there were about 15 children k to 5th grade in age. This was a great way to end their break! They were very happy. I see my Little Cowboy loves to share his horsey and see the children so happy. I am trying to teach him that when God blesses you, it is good to should share that blessing with others.


Please pray for Andrea's (with Sweet Pea #192859) grandpa, he has a health issue.

Rest well & be ready for an exciting week back to school!

It was a lovely day until the rains came in. There was a long storm that recently ended. It feels really nice outside these days.
Trigger was blind in one eye before we got him. Monday his blind eye was very cloudy. Today the vet told me Trigger is fine long as he is in no pain. He is such a great kids horse. I hate that something happened to his eye and I pray that I can take good care of him from now on.

Please visit Sassy Sapphire #193884 and leave an encouraging word. From what I can tell, her blog to me says Sassy Sapphire's owner lost her father this past Sunday morning.

One of my friends was out last Saturday at one of the state parks riding and there was an accident. Her friend dismounted to help and her friend's palomino TWH walked off. They were on the news tonight asking for help to find the missing horse. Please pray that they find Jasmine in good health very soon.

Show update: Thursday Cowboy practiced for some events & carrying the flag on Trigger. Friday Fancy & Trigger visited the farrier. We cleaned tack & loaded the trailer Friday evening.
Now for the excitement! Saturday morning, I gave Trigger a bath. I can not clean him up the day before because he will roll extra hard to collect much dirt as he can. I got as much water off him as I could & loaded him in the trailer before he could get dirty. I was standing at the small door latching his halter, something poked out by my feet, I saw a fluffy red-ringed raccoon looking tail swish by my feet & disappear under the trailer. It was a FOX! I fastened the halter & went into the house. The fox stayed under the trailer. My BB gun is very weak. You can see the BB's fall to the ground when you shot it. We wanted the fox to leave, so we got the BB gun after it & it did not move. Several minutes later we saw it go under the drain pipe at the end of our driveway. I was a bit shaky after I realized I had been that close to the fox.
We left a bit later than expected. Fancy stood at the gate, looked square at my face & nickered. I felt like dirt to leave her. As we left she ran back & forth & whinnied loudly. I promised I would make it up to her.

We arrived in time for Cowboy & Trigger to warm up 30 minutes before the show. There were sheep & bulls around the arena this time. Last time there were only bulls. Trigger was not bothered by the bulls, but he did not cotton to the sheep. Cowboy & one of the adult men rode their horses up to the sheep & petted them through the fence. Cowboy dismounted & walked Trigger up to them first, then he rode him up to the sheep. Very smart Cowboy. After that Trigger was ok with the sheep.
Cowboy was galloping with a teen girl he met & he yelled whoa to Trigger & her horse stopped They both got a kick out of that.

Friday we picked up a rain poncho for the just in case. It came in handy as several rain showers passed through during the show.
Cowboy & Trigger won 1st place in Western Walk & Jog 12 & under, 2nd place in Youth Western Go As You Please 12 & under, 1st place in Youth Western Pleasure 12 & under, & 1st place in Youth Catalog Race 12 & under. They also entered the flag race, but his flag fell out of the sand at the very end.
At the end of the show Cowboy took his helmet off and put it on Trigger. I don't know if he thought Trigger needed it or what he was thinking. LOL.

My brother wanted to ride today. I wont be out knowing our area is expecting storms.
Have a nice weekend, if you enjoy a horse ride in the bright summer sun, stop by and share it with us.

Has any one noticed the changes occurring on HC? Like the non-horsey ads and some of the designs on a few pages are fresh and different. Looks like we will soon have the same format as DC. I have been trying to learn to get around on DC. The voting and blogging process is very slow for me. That is not good. I will keep trying at it. May be there is something I have to figure out. I want to be ready when the format arrives on HC. I am afraid I will not be able to find HC friends after the changes are made.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! Fancy and I hope you have enjoyed a beautiful Father's Day!

I could not wait to tell you about our newest adventure. But when I got home, I was so tired and my rear was so tender from sitting all day. I just wanted to go to bed. So now I can tell you about Friday's ride at Uwharrie National Park, our longest ride ever! Fancy did notice that we were yet again in a new place. But she was very calm, only looking around and checking out the grazing quality, which she approved. The farm was such a comfy place, I could stay there forever.
As we began our ride, all the horses were slightly excited. Once on the trial it was all natural forest, and I mean natural. I guess all the past storms and wet conditions caused many trees to fall. There were veery rocky areas. You would be surprised at the number of snapping turtles in one area of the river & all sizes! When they hear you coming, they plop into the water from their lazy sunning on logs and rocks. In a dense part of the forest, I looked to my right and saw 3 to 4 deer leaping so quietly and elegantly through the trees.
Each horse took turns leading, middle, last. We did canter in places. There were many streams for splashing water on hot bellies & quenching thirst.
At lunch, one horse has to share his owner's grilled cheese sandwich. I thought that was funny. At every break, they get carrots, store bought horse treats, and sometimes apples. I never seen so many treats. LOL! At first Fancy didn't know about the carrots, or it was the fact that a stranger was giving them to her. But it did not take long before she was sharing her good nature with everyone. I especially love the river in places. My profile photo on Sunday, Father's day was taken at a place where grass grows in the middle of the river like on a small island. At one place along the river the sounds of running water would put you to sleep if you sat still long enough.

I was so tired last night, didn't have enough in me for my online activities. Well rested now and here I am!

Buttercup, Trigger, & Fancy finally got a photo together as we left for our 2nd trial ride. About 3 years has passed since I have seen these wooded trails. It felt so good to be in the places where I learned to ride. So many memories there! Now my Little Cowboy is riding the same trails with me!
Have you found yourself riding in the same trails as your parents or the ones that helped you learn to ride? Or do your children now ride the trails that you learned to ride on?
At one area we were beside the train tracks & here comes 'THE TRAIN'. Fancy wanted to run away, but she listened to me instead. I did keep her slightly facing it so she could see it. And she relaxed slowly. She still does not like trains, but this was very good for her to see that it was not going to hurt her.

Fancy & Trigger are moseying on down the trail with a Tuesday vote for you. Did you participate in a Memorial Day Celebration of any kind?

THANKS for the congrats on Cowboy & Trigger's fun show success♥ He was tickled about the blogs!

We trailered to the farm for a trailride with Buttercup! I hate not being able to get any pics this time. Fancy surprised me! Fancy was not very familiar with the drop down into the creek, but she went slowly and with out any problem. Then we worked Buttercup at the same creek crossing because Buttercup was determined not to cross, but she didn't know about me. LOL. We got her to cross it several times before leaving! And Little Trigger was the champ of the day! He rode Little Cowboy and his smaller cousin all day. And he trudged along like a champ without giving them any problem what so ever. I am sure are getting to like that little horse ")

Leaving a Friday vote and a smile ;~)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Cowboy Definitions:
Adam's Ale - Water.

Cowboy took Trigg to the vet after school today. I thought he might be a pony or something. LOL! But the vet says he is a full Arabian, just kind of small and he says that can be normal.

After our vet visit, Cowboy and I visited the farm. Buttercup has given her little heart to my brother after all. Buttercup was out, eating grass when my brother walked by, she actually wanted to follow him with ears forward and a very happy horsey expression! So different from weeks ago!!! I am happy for him.

I forgot to tell you, I got Fancy some sweet rolls for her birthday and she did not like them. I had to get Fancy some watermelon. But Trigger loved the sweet rolls, so I gave him the sweet rolls. Fancy would get in between Trigg and the sweet rolls and try to keep him from eating them. When she walked or turned away from them Trigg would try to sneak around her to get them. It would take him a while, but finally he would get to eat them. Those two were so funny.

Fancy and I are learning some things for our new halter and showmanship interest. It is going to take some time before we are ready for showmanship. But we can have fun learning in the meantime.

I may be offline Saturday. I will try and log in to vote contest if I can't do anything else.

Have a beautiful weekend!

I dedicate this special occasion of our first show together to Joanna and Pixie Dust.

Fancy spent Friday night in a blanket with hopes she would be more clean than dirty come morning. The back clip had come undone, but that blanket did serve the purpose. Fancy only had one area on the side of her neck that was dirty. Once at the farm, I cleaned her dirty spot and her feet before introducing Fancy to the sandy arena. At first she was a little excited to be in a new place, but soon settled down. We only entered two classes this time. Fancy was fine, except she did not like horses standing behind her. When horses were lined up behind us, Fancy kept trying to spin around to see exactly what they had in mind back there.
We entered class 2 Adult Halter with 6 entries and Fancy placed 3rd!!!! This was the first time I ever won a ribbon with any horse!!! I was so excited. We didn't do so well in Class 3 as we placed 5th out of 5. However, We did leave with 2 ribbons from our first show!!!

There is a possibility that King Kong may be going to a new home soon. This family likes him because he is so gentle and walks slow.

Fancy screamed at me as I cleaned the inside of her caddy. She thought I was going somewhere and she was more than ready to go!

Wednesday I rode Trigger around the yard and down the street to see how he would act. He tried to get out of a few things, but he didn't remember I saw my brother ride him and I knew he went anywhere he was told. So I popped his little butt with my crop and no more funny business mister. He went like a little gentleman. My little cowboy was watching. He is going to have to use the crop to get his point across next time. Poor Cowboy, he asked me to ride Trigger a few more days.

Since the trailer was hooked to the truck, I loaded Trigger in & out of the trailer since he doesn't like loading. Fancy was having a fit. LOL. After I let Trigger eat some grass I let Fancy eat some grass and we walked over to the trailer and she walked up in the trailer and looked back at me like aren't we going somewhere, I backed her out and she went back in. I wanted to take her for a ride, but gas prices will not allow fun trips right now. LOL.

PLEASE READ, CORRECTION TO PREVIOUS BLOG: I made an error in dates listed in my blog. I also somehow accidentally lost Joanna's first name in some of my blogs.

The CORRECT INFORMATION is Joanna Helen Wicke January 1, 1977-September 23, 2011.

I guess I am not very reliable at 3:30 in the morning. I appreciate Marion and Indy calling this to my attention and I apologize for the error.

There are a few active HorseChannel members that remember Joanna. If you remember Joanna, PLEASE share a blog on Fancy's page. I would love to read what you have shared with Joanna during her short stay here.

Hi! I hope you are doing well today looking forward to a horsey weekend and celebrating this Easter weekend. We are in a 3 day stretch of cold rain & I am freezing :) We are not expecting warmer temps, but we do expect the rain to clear up this afternoon. Then we can have some fun.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
It is not because angels are holier than men or devils that makes them angels, but because they do not expect holiness from one another, but from God alone. ~William Blake

Sometime in 1991, Joanna came across 2 Shetland ponies for sale in a want ad. Both ponies were purchased by her family and given to Bloomfield Hills School Farm. Joanna named the ponies Tinkerbell & Pixie Dust. Joanna helped her mom create and teach 'LOVE-A-PONY', an afterschool and summer class for children. For seven years Joanna was with her ponies almost every day. It has been over 19 years since creating LOVE-A-PONY, and I have read that this pony class is still being taught this very day.

Joanna's was confined to her bed the last 9 years of her life, during which Pixie Dust was allowed to visit Joanna at her bedside. Joanna also made friends all across the world with the use of her computer, thanks to her dad for building a stand that allowed her to safely use the computer while lying down.

Pixie Dust at 21 years old, has joined Joanna in Heaven. I have read that this date was sometime around or on the 27 of February, 2012. I can only imagine the joy felt during that reunion.

Joanna was extraordinary. Always thinking of how she could help others, even through the use of her ponies. She loved unconditional and she reached out to others, even when she needed to be reached out to.

Joanna, a true inspiration ♥

A group of HorseChannel.com members have formed a group, known as the Angel Crew. The Angel Crew would like to win Angel Pixie Dust the honor of being HorseChannel's May Horse of the Month in honor of Joanna. If you would like to help, please visit Pixie Dust's HorseChannel page #101958 and leave a vote each day during the month of April 2012.

Pixie Dust, belonged to our Facebook pal and HorseChannel member, Joanna Wicke. Joanna was loved by all who knew her. She was always positive and uplifting to others. Joanna welcomed Fancy and I to HorseChannel with unbelievable love and daily support. After a disturbing disappearance of Joanna, Sadie's owner, Joyce informed us that Joanna had passed away in her sleep at the tender age of 34 on September 23, 2011. It was only then that her many health conditions were revealed. Even though being confined to her bed for the past 9 years, Joanna never once revealed a single pain to us. What a remarkable YOUNG person to have as a friend.
It was in 1991 that Joanna & her mom purchased Pixie Dust to share with the Bloomfield Hills School Farm. For 7 years Joanna helped her mom create & teach Love-A-Pony, an afterschool & summer class for children.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“Lord, You make me as honest as the horse I ride.” (unknown)

The day I met Fancy:
March 9, 2009,8am: found classified add for 10 month TWH. That evening, we traveled to a VA farm. The owner pointed Fancy out, my heart immediately fell in love with this untouched filly. I saw a beautiful future in this long legged, woolly, running like crazy, with her big round bulging belly, filly. The drive from NC to VA was not in vain. The owner and his sons drove all horses into the barn and then ran them out, except one, Fancy. They got the halter on her and the fight was on. After finally reaching the trailer, it took forever to get her in the trailer. The guys had to lift her up and push her in. Ok that done, the sun had parted with us and we were on our way home.
We stopped at the convenience store and I looked in to check on what I planned to be my new best pal. She was not happy, but doing fine.
In the dark of the night, Fancy would not back out of the trailer. She actually decided she would rather lay down in the floor of the trailer rather than do anything we wanted her to do. We had already moved the partition to the side of the trailer to give her space, but we had to work around the center bar in between the back doors. Fancy would not get up for nothing in the world. I wanted to leave her there for the night, but feared she would hurt herself on the partition or something when she did get up. We carefully pulled her out without hurting her. I put her in a stall for the night so I would not fear her getting hurt because she did not know her surroundings. I did not sleep all that night!
Each day there after, I would sit in her presence for a while and when she showed signs of relaxing, I went in to catch her. She was tricky, but so was I. LOL. She slowly learned and gave me her trust.
Each day with Fancy is as exciting as the very first.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Celebrate BlackHistory Month:
“To live anywhere in the world today and be against equality because of race or color is like living in Alaska and being against snow.” (William Faulkner)

Fancy Queen of Heart Month is blowing a heart vote in your direction this beautiful Monday morning.

We thank Joey, Ginger, and Angel Betsy for suggesting us doing the Black History blogs this past few weeks. I enjoyed this project, it was fun to share some of my most favorite horsey characters with you guys. I appreciate the comments and responses we received.

'C' & I trailered Trigger home Saturday morning. 'C' led Trigger to the trailer, however once Trigg saw that he was leaving he pitched a fit for King Kong. King Kong was so busy eating grass, he had no cares for Trigger's plight. Once loaded Trigger was just fine. He didn't like the idea of a bath, but it was fun cleaning him up. After his baths we take him walking and let him graze while he dries.
Sunday evening, Trigger and Fancy were turned out together for the first time. To my surprise, Fancy is not even mean to Trigger, not at all. She lets him walk anywhere he wants to, lets him eat her hay and she even eats with him. However, she does stay in between Trigger and I. I was patting Fancy on the side of her neck and Trigger wanted a pat to. He walked towards me and Fancy ran him off. He looked so pitiful. I think after a while she will allow him to come to me too, because Trigger is the very first animal in our yard that Fancy is not very mean to. I wonder if she is nice to him because she remembers him from last summer when we visited the farm, he visited us, and we went riding together.
I was very tired Sunday night. I did get my profile photos changed, then I was off to bed.

Hope you enjoyed a beautiful weekend. Did you do anything fun?
Now, YOU enjoy this Marvelous Monday!

Willie Simms, born 1/16/1870, near Augusta, Georgia, U.S.—died 2/26/1927, Asbury, New Jersey), 1 of only 2 African American jockeys (the other is Isaac Burns Murphy) 2 have been elected 2 the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, New York.
Simms began racing in 1887 & became the most successful rider 2 adopt the short stirrup since the antebellum slave & rider Abe Hawkins. The short stirrup lifts the rider over the horse’s withers, allowing the animal better balance. In 1895 Simms became the 1st American jockey 2 win in England, where sportswriters referred 2 him as a “monkey on a stick.” The short stirrup earned more esteem after the white American jockey Tod Sloan used it 2 win English races in 1897, & it came to be known as the “American seat.”
Simms won the Belmont Stakes in 1893 & 1894, the Kentucky Derby in 1896 & 1898, & the Preakness Stakes in 1898; he is the only African American 2 have won all of the Triple Crown classics. Simms was the leading American jockey (on the basis of number of wins) in 1893 & 1894. He retired in 1901 with 1 of the best lifetime winning percentages in the sport, 24.8.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Happy Valentines:
“Many are the stars I see, but in my eye no star like thee” (English saying)

Here is your Sunday heart vote from my SweetHeart Fancy and Trigg.
My son 'C', wants me to let everyone know he appreciates your votes and he loves reading the comments. He says "Thank You ♥"

Fancy,"She says she loves me."
Frances,"My horse keeps me honest."

What a cold & windy day in NC! I did spend a bit of time today cleaning Fancy's corral. I was on my way into the shed and Fancy nickered to me. I know the look, she wants time out. I actually promised her I would give her time out when I finished putting my yard tools away. The wind was blowing so hard when I came out of the shed that I forgot my promise to Fancy & was about to lock the shed door when Fancy nickered to me. She was standing at the gate patiently waiting for her time out. I told her Ok, you keep me honest! And back into the shed I went to fetch her halter and lead. On the way I was thinking to myself, I talk to this horse too much, she knows what I am telling her. I gotta stop talking soo much. LOL! I do love my sweet horse ♥

'C' had to visit his Trigger today. When we got there Trigg was across the creek. We called to him and he actually ran over. I think he thought it was supper time. 'C' gave Trigg a nice juicy apple. Trigg got himself a new nickname today. 'C' calls him Tigger now.

The rains held back and the winds were harsh, it was too cold to ride, but we had lovely weather this weekend.

How did your weekend go?
Love Fancy Queen of Hearts ♥ & Frances
