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.

PEACE STARTS WITH A SMILE;~)

"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!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
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!

You have a Blessed day and please keep Paula(horse is Lena #216601) in prayer as she handles the loss of her father and travel.

"Leap for Joy, Great is your reward in Heaven." (anonymous)

Lovely Carolina day to leave a vote for friends.

We are on our way back into the high temps. I rode Fancy around the neighborhood a few times accompanied by my son on his bicycle. He hasn't ridden Fancy for quite a few days because I am adjusting her to a new bit. It is a mild curb I bought last week. My son is more comfy with the curb bit. He had never used a snaffle until the first time he rode Fancy solo. He had trouble with the snaffle bit and he didn't like it. Fancy is very good with both bits but somehow I like the snaffle a little bit better until she fully understands the curb. I was surprised at how well she was today though.
IF you have experience transitioning a horsey pal from a snaffle to a curb, please share with me. You never know. Something you know could really help. This is my first time making this adjustment. The last horse I trained, I tried starting in the snaffle and he wouldn't take it in his mouth after the first day. So I tired a curb and he took it just fine every time, and we took our time and worked it out all the way. So I never had to make the adjustment. Fancy just goes with anything if I take my time and let her do her thing. Hope she stays that way. LOL
Happy Sunday evening!!!
We love you guys♥

..·:*¨¨*:·. *VOTE PIPPIN HOTM*.·:*¨¨*:·. .
Hi, my name is Pippin and I am running for horse of the month in January. I am a cute but feisty miniature stallion and at 31" tall and 200lbs, I can literally pull my own weight! I love going out with my humans and my favourite activities (after eating, of course!) are driving and jumping. But… really I'm game for anything asked of me. Nothing much scares me and I LOVE new and exciting adventures.

Do I have any faults? If you ask me, of course not! I'm perfect! If you ask mama? Well, she doesn't like me nipping her (oh, but it's so tempting!) and she wishes I were better with water. I'm not too keen on baths or puddles.

Next month I will have been on the Horse Channel for 4 years and I'm the oldest active member. I would greatly appreciate your daily votes and support for me all next month. I plan to educate all my fans on the wonders of minis and I hope to highlight one of my movies each day.

Thank you in advance and I hope to see you all next month so that I can reach my vote goal of 10,000 votes! Wishing you all the best for the new year and leaving a vote!

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Good Morning HC friends! Fancy and I are leaving a thankful vote for being part of something so wonderful")
Lady Jane(#189648) told me she says a little prayer for Petite Fleur'S(#107376) medical condition, when she votes for her. Lady Jane suggested that if we all join her with a little prayer when we leave a vote, it would make all the difference.
I do believe in the power of prayer! And it being Thanksgiving holiday, What better time to ask for a special prayer for each other. Let's make this a special occasion for prayer. Let us join in together and say a prayer for each friend and member we vote for or just a prayer for the whole HC club and all of it's members. No need to be stingy with a good prayer!!!
We have friends that are traveling, friends with loved family members facing surgery, some of our horses are facing health problems(and you know all these things worry us greatly!) We have a need for the Thanksgiving prayer:) I hope this isn't asking too much of you, only takes a few seconds, unless you choose otherwise:)

Fancy, and Frances are leaving an Autumn vote! Hey it's chilly this morning!!!!!!!

I hope your weekend was very nice. NC weather was lovely this weekend! I rode Fancy Sunday too. I learned to ask her for leg yields in an open space (like an empty parking lot or vacant lot) to give her time to get it right. This way when she goes the wrong way, I don't have to worry about getting into something we shouldn't be in. And I can offer her the patience that she is accustomed to. I think her being so hyper to go out and the stimulus of outside events makes it hard for her to concentrate the way she does in the corral. She was a lot better on Sunday than she was Saturday and we had a nice relaxed ride. Which was wonderful!!!

Fancy and Frances are leaving a quick Sunday Evening vote. Saturday afternoon we practiced some directing of the feet with me in the saddle. She was ok in the back yard. When we went out, she went relaxed but not slow. Which is the way she likes to walk. But when I asked her to do leg yields in the street, she didn't want to do them. We had to do lots of moving the feet. Fancy just wanted to go straight around the block, which we did. But she must to learn to be consistent with answering my direction, even if she wants to go around the block. This was our worst time doing leg yields. I expect her to improve now. We always have a worst day at new lessons and then she gets better.

Fancy is leaving an 'end of the weekend vote' Hope it's been a nice one for you. We have had a bit of excitement. Saturday evening, I rode Fancy around the yard for a while. Queenie was tied out and my son's Jack Russell Terrier went over to Queenie. Next thing I heard some pitiful screaming! Queenie had half of that little dog's head in her mouth! I got off of Fancy and rushed over. The only thing I had in my hand was my crop whip. The little dog was using the bathroom all over the place, I guess the poor thing thought she was about to meet her maker, and I thought the same. I popped Queenie with the crop whip and she didn't let go. I really whacked her quite a few times before she stopped shacking that poor little dog. The little dog was quit upset, but she was in one piece. During all of this poor little dog screaming bloody murder and me screaming No Queenie, stop!, while I was holding Fancy's reins in one hand and whacking with the other hand, Fancy was eating grass. When I was going over the events in my mind, I realized how quiet Fancy had been and I couldn't believe it. I Thank God Fancy was still at the right moment. Well, this wasn't the first time Queenie attacked the little dog, but it was the worst! Needless to say Queenie no longer lives with us. I don't know why she has the worst dog aggression problems I have ever seen!!! I thought she was going to work out with us, but I can't handle that kind of aggression.

Oh, my little girl is growing up! Fancy lost one of her front bottom teeth last night. Saturday she was flipping it back and forth with her tongue like a little kid. My 9 year old son lost a tooth last week. I guess they are growing up together. LOL. Fancy is doing very well with the leg yields. She understands now, we just have to practice more.

Here is a vote from Fancy!

Monday evening I went out to spend some quality time with Fancy") I really needed that. We practiced some leg yields and backing with me in the saddle. Fancy was pretty good with the backing. It took a few attempts before she understood the leg yields. It takes a few tries but each time she does them better than the last time. After a few minutes I let her graze and just enjoy some quiet time together.
My saddle is very comfy with the new adjustments. It is easy to keep my heels down and I am not reaching for the stirrup! That felt good! I can't wait to use them for a longer ride and see how my knees feel.

Are you and your best equine pal doing anything special this week?

How are you doing? Sorry for being so long offline here on HC. Things have just been so hectic with something going wrong everywhere.

Jewel has an awful wound. You can see it on Eddie's page. She cut her chest open in her corral. They're keeping the wound open so it won't fester and they won't stitch it because movement could tear it open again. I've rarely seen anything so horrible.

It actually looks worse now than it did. It's a little less swollen but now the fat and gristle are forming and hanging in strings which drip constantly like a tap that won't turn off.

Pippin is STILL swollen but I think that the anti-histamines are finally kicking in. The change in the weather may also be contributing to his health too. Rain and freeze probably took care of some of allergens. Today it's been 2 months since he first swelled up. Even his tail was swollen! Poor thing.

The cold I managed to catch at the beginning of this month is still lingering which doesn't make late night blogging as fun as usual. Plus I dislocated two of my toes and they're still bothering me. Sometimes I wish I could order replacement body parts. I have quite a few that could do with an upgrade. Too many injuries. I guess that's the price we pay for being active.

And then there's Melian. She was spayed last Monday and was so very sick. The vet had a hard time with the operation and since salukis are very sensitive to the anaesthesia it took her days to shake the effects. She cried every night last week and couldn't go potty #2 because she would scream in pain. And she couldn't lift her head. It broke my heart to see her like that. Finally on Friday night I gave her some metacam and it worked wonders. I gave her more again last night and today she almost seems like her old self. I was beginning to wonder if she'd ever walk properly again.

As for Prince, he's doing fine and I had a few really good rides on him. And managed to take him over a few small jumps. Eddie's not too bad either though he has a shoe boil on his elbow so he's limping a bit.

Happy Halloween and I hope you had a great weekend. It's quiet here out in the middle of nowhere. Ah, the peace! Leaving a vote for you and hoping it won't be too long before I blog again.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Here is a patiently learning and kindly trying to teach vote from Fancy and Frances this beautiful Sunday night♥
What a busy weekend. I am kind of glad for the week. That sounds aweful!
I did ride Fancy Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. I guess it was time for Fancy to say "hey I think I want to be the boss now." And I had to say,"No, Little Lady" Each day our ground work was very good. Fancy almost has leg yields very well. Friday was the first day she did a leg yield with me in the saddle. She is not very confident with that yet. Friday Fancy was very hyper while going out, but she was good. So we were ok.
Saturday, our family got up around 6am to see the Winston Homecoming Parade which lasted for hours! The best part was the horses at the end. This is usually one of the parades we ride in. I got to talk to some old friends")
Back home after the parade in Winston, traffic was so heavy here, we walked to the Lexington Barbecue Festival. There was folks here from WV, Va, TX, TN, PA, etc, and someone even flew in from Germany. We met my brother and Tirnanog at a gas station near by. Tirnanog was a such a doll. He gave rides to some kids when their parents stopped so they could met him. They offered to pay my brother, but he told them rides are free") My brother wanted Fancy and I to ride out with him. I was soo tired I told my brother I would ride Sunday after church. I was to tired but I knew Fancy needed some time. So I made myself saddle her up, practice our leg yields and ride. When Fancy realized we weren't leaving the yard she was not a nice little horsey.
Sunday after church I felt like Fancy needed some one on one time with me, so we didn't ride out with Tirnanog. She was good with the groundwork. Even tried really hard to understand and do the leg yields with me in the saddle. When we headed out of the yard my little horse lost her brain. This was the worse she has ever acted! She tried to rush out with me and give me attitude. I had to address some respect issues. It took us at least 30 minutes and 5 attempts to leave the yard in a controlled manner. When we left the yard Fancy went very nicely. And she listened very well. She even stood for me to check the mailbox, I thought that was nice of her.

I apologize that I haven't been around much lately. I've been working really late all week and to top it off I've had a cold now for about 2 weeks and don't feel much like blogging by the time I get to my computer at 1am.

I took Pippin to the vet and he's now on doggie antihistamines. We have to wait and see if they work because he wasn't doing well at all. I'll write about our trip there when I feel a bit better. Suffice it to say for now that he rode in a van and looked out the front window.

Leaving a vote for you and hoping everything is okay with you.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

i had to go out into the arena to find something that had fallen off the saddle and my horse's were turned out in it and eating their flakes of hay. it was so cute because buttercup left her pile of hay and came to follow me around as i searched for it. i was surprised she'd EVER leave food!! lol.
i posted a new pic of hershey that i took tonight as he was waiting for me to put feed in his bucket.

406 sweet angel Kachina from Petite Fleur
Well here we are on a cold, windy and rainy Sunday in our part of France ! Winter and autumn just began! Petite Fleur sending a vote in her new rain and warm up coat! Her third day of medicine seems to be working and her back is not creaking when I push on it. It took a while to get her coat on and adjusting it with the wind & rain whipping my eyes but she was patient as always! I am sure it will rolled in mud by tonight! Temps going down low tonight! I could not take a photo of her in her coat because of this weather but before I take it off her maybe I can get one tomorrow, he he! Just want her all better! Have a blessed Sunday and enjoy it if your weather is nice! Happy Trails!
