How We Met

When my aunt went into the Navy she was left with us. She is a one person horse kind of horse and ended up picking me after my aunt left. We became extremely close and I learned most of what I now know about riding from her (most of it the hard way) and have her to thank for my choice in horses, high strung and spirited..

Happy New Year
This is our story, the story of the The Old Lady and The "Outlaw":

I wish it wasn't so hot... I wish I had clean water... I wish someone would feed me, oh, I wish someone would get me out of here... I don't understand, what did I do? I remember good times, I remember being fed, and groomed and a pasture to run in and sweet grass to eat instead of being caged up. I remember running flat out with the wind in my mane, I REMEMBER BEING LOVED! I am so miserable, if only there were something to do besides watch the road. The other horses just stand there. Oh, Epona, help me!
I had just turned 60 (4 1/2 yrs ago) when I first saw Cisco...

WE VOTED FOR ALL, PLEASE STOP BY
Good Morning, we left a vote, have I mentioned that I am stubborn..well, even after the kick in the head I did not give up on Bray, but what happened was, I became afraid of him, I found I was making excuses to not ride, like, oh it is too wet, or too windy or I'm too tired etc...on days that I did ride, I was just thankful to get off in one piece. This horse had my number and we were not communicating at ALL. After a lot of soul searching I decided that I really LOVED this horse, I just didn't LIKE him very much, I know you guys get that, talk soon, please leave a vote for my Angel Sassy Mac, more on him to come soon, Love Donna Lee

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 ✞

Hi! Did you have a busy, fun weekend? What have you been up to?

I have been on the move, but I enjoyed it! Saturday morning, Fancy participated in her first parade! It was a really big homecoming parade, with lots of tight crowds and loud bands! Fancy was excited for the first 15 to 20 minutes, but after that she was very relaxed and was not bothered by bouncing children on the sidelines. In past years, I have ridden my previous horses in this parade, but I never got to participate in the tradition of riding around the football field before the game. I could not get my past horses onto the football field because they were afraid. Well yesterday, I did for the first time, ride around the football field, with my Fancy! Fancy even took the lead and she did that running walk at least half way around! It was so much fun! I will never forget the first time I got to ride around the football field!!!!! Oh, and to boot, the home team won their game!!!!!! I would like to believe Fancy gave them good luck when she went around the field. LOL!
Half way through the day all I could think of was how this has to be my best day ever with Fancy. And then I think to myself, I have had so many days that I thought were my best day ever with Fancy! Saturday morning, I lost my keys on the way out of town. The keys fell off the side of the trailer or the truck. But I found them completely mangled on the side of a busy street after 6 hours of being run over in heavy traffic. Even though I had the lost key problem, I still had that feeling of this being the best day ever!

Saturday night, our family attended our horseshow end of year banquet. This was our first time attending and I had no idea what to expect. So, I did not take my camera and I was very surprised to see Little Cowboy & Trigger won a good bit of awards. Little Cowboy was so excited to share the awards with Trigger, they used their new snaffle bit and new grooming kit tonight. He is going to save his new blanket for next years show season. Little Cowboy rode until dark, and I did get a few pictures tonight before it got too dark.

Have a beautiful Autumn day ✞

Please vote Lady Aristocrat 232456 for HOTD
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.

Very Important Message from Logan #237047: Could you please spread the word that my wrist is in really bad condition and I can't vote for people today! It is swelled up pretty bad and moving it hurts! Please spread the word!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, in honor of Angel Pixie Dust's (profile 101958) May HOTM campaign for our Angel Joanna, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
"If we were all like angels, the world would be a heavenly place." (Author Unknown)


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!!!

Love From our herd to yours♥

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, 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?

Good morning vote!
I don't know what Fancy was up to yesterday morning, when I went out to feed her, she was acting like she was starving! I wondered what created that appetite. She was prancing between the gate and her food bucket , snaking her neck for me to come on with it, and doing a little pawing. What gives! Well anyway, she was happy for dinner time.

February 1st was the official day my son became the owner of Trigger. Trigger was my youngest brother's horse. My brother gave Trigger to my son because my brother is out of town working all the time. I created a page for Trigger and my son. I am still working on adding the pictures. If you have time please visit their page. I love the smiles on his face when he reads your comments:) Since I don't know how much longer Scotty will be staying with us, I deleted Scotty's page and added Scotty to the page with King Kong.

Thanks for all the sweet blogs♥

Looking over Fancy's most recent blogs, I see "Congrats'. Ok, Fancy had HOTD in October. It dawned on me, today is February 1st. I checked and Fancy is Feburary HOTM. Fancy does have a kind and loving heart, so I think she will do a great job as Queen of February.
I am so thankful for HC friends. You are much more than friends. You are our horsey family. Thanks for understanding when I humanize Fancy. You don't criticize. You allow me to share my love for her. And in return, You share the love you have for your horse with me.
If we continue to enjoy spring like days this February, Fancy & I can have some fun celebration days!

Fancy is patiently tied at her hitching rail sending Sunday heart votes to HorseChannel friends.

Today was the driest day since all the rains. I finally got a photo of my dirty Fancy girl standing tied at her new hitching rail. GROOMING TIME, oh yes! Fancy likes her hitching rail better than being tied to the tree in her corral. I like it too :)

I found a photo of Fancy at one year old, that I took 3 days after I got her. I posted it as Fancy's profile photo.

I finally got help constructing a hitching rail for Fancy. It is very sturdy and my hands & arms feel like jelly. My son says, we are officially OLD.

“There is no key to happiness. The door is always open.” (anonymous)

Have a muddy vote, LOL. That is all Fancy has here, MUDD!

Saturday was warm & lovely but damp. Fancy and I enjoyed the evening. I didn't worry for a grooming session because she was a might bit damp. Right before I left her for the night she began to run and leap. I looked back to see why. A huge solid gray cat ran out of her stall and into the woods! I don't think I have ever seen a cat so big!

Would you believe, today we had winter temps. (in the winter, LOL). Pretty chilly today! Which is normal after all. The weather man says it will warm up again though. Strange winter, but I like it!

I always cook after church, so while cooking dinner today I watched a Craig Cameron show that had recorded. Has anyone seen his show this week???? He is riding the trail that Billy the Kid rode after he escaped from the jail and killed two lawmen. I have seen the movie 'Young Guns" like a thousand times! So I loved seeing this episode about Billy on Craig Cameron's show. Just watching this gave me goosebumps. He was in the actual jail that Billy escaped from. The two lawmen are buried on Craig's ranch! I think he said his ranch is 800 acres! I told my husband if we had 800 acres, Fancy and I would be so lost like most of the time. And some time, on purpose. LOL!!!

Be Blessed♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day!:
“The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: "If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?" But... the good Samaritan reversed the question: "If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?" “
(Martin Luther King, Jr. )

If the vote button is working today, I just left a vote. If not I will try the button a few more times.

Saturday January 14, 2012
My profile photo today is of Fancy standing at our trailer Saturday waiting for her saddle. Fancy and I had picked up my brother and King Kong earlier. King Kong was a little sore early in the morning. But on in the day he was getting along very well.
We wondered why there were only 3 trailers there for the scheduled club ride. Well, the ride had been cancelled due to all the previous days of rain. We few riders did not know that because we did not check the website before leaving. LOL.
But it was fine, the ride was delightful! Most of the trail was pleasant and not muddy. There was some muddy spots.
We all saddled our horses and rode around the parking lot first. When I sat on Fancy I felt something that I had never felt before. I felt her little heart beating furiously. I do not know if she was afraid or excited. I rode her around the parking lot and around the other horses so she could see them. After that she calmed down.
We met a 5 year old bay gelding with the same breeding as my Fancy. Fancy's mommy is a Tennessee Walking horse and her daddy is a Standardbred. Well this lovely bay gelding has a Standardbred mommy and a Tennessee Walking horse daddy. He had the prettiest mane too and he was very proud, had the loveliest movement.
The other horses there were Quarter horses. There was an older sorrel mare and a very pretty blue roan 3 year old with a white face.
It is kind of hard to get good pics in the creek while on the horse. I will try to load the photos at the bottom of Fancy's page, if I can. I don't know if HC is being nice today. LOL.
The pic of Fancy and I in the creek is blurry, but I will post it for a few days just in case you want to see it.


Be Blessed,
Love Fancy & Frances ♥

I know that my son enjoys your blogs about him, so I am sure it will mean so much for little Daisy to see that we have not forgotten her family and horses.
Hope you are enjoying a fantastic CHRISTmas with family and loved ones. This is truly the season for showing love!!!

Fancy is finally back on HC with a vote for you. We also could not get back onto HC and then Wednesday I had to get the computer worked on because of a virus. All is well now with computing.

It is muddy here, I would like some dry ground under my feet:)
I wish Fancy could share in all the Christmas activities. My family thinks I am crazy, and I know that is not possible, LOL. My son and I watched Scrooge last night before. I love Christmas movies that I remember watching when I was a kid. I think my favorite has to be A Charlie Brown Christmas. Do you have a favorite Christmas movie?
Have fun with your Holiday activities!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I set up some barrels and stuff in the yard to work around while I rode my girl today. Fancy was so sweet, she let me know she is still my sweet girl.
We hope you are enjoying your weekend with loved ones.

Fancy's HOTM list is on hold for now. My profile page will not let me add ALL the names. I guess my page has to many words on it for right now, which is probably due to my Thanksgiving message. I will reintroduce Fancy's HOTM list soon as the page will accommodate all the names on the list.

I meet Deb & Lady Jane (profile #189648 ), and company! What a wonderful group of friends to make! I was so excited I totally exhausted myself! It was awesome to see the beautiful horses & riders on the beach! They actually had the ACTHA ride along the shoreline!!! How awesome is that? We sat at the campsite enjoying stories and getting acquainted while my son helped Hollie tend to the horses. He enjoyed that most of all. Deb & Lady Jane's group left out for a night stroll along the beach as we were leaving for home. With each breath I longed to ride my Fancy Walk N That Way along the beach. I could not wait to get home to share this with Fancy.

Aimee & Fanny (profile #78967) invited us to enjoy a trail ride with them. This was Fancy's very first trail ride with a group. There were about 30-40 horses on the ride and 2 wagons. My brother & King Kong (profile #218728) accompanied us. We had a wonderful time. Fancy received several compliments on her behavior and some folks thought she was very pretty. They asked me who broke that horse for you? LOL!!!! Me, LOL! God!!! They said Fancy was very patient because she listened to me when I talk to her. I didn't think anything of it because to me that was normal. Fancy is my good girl most of the time and sometimes she is my bad girl. LOL! On one break, Aimee rode Fancy around. I had to tell Fancy to stop following me and listen to Aimee. Aimee enjoyed riding Fancy around in the field. I had planned not to run my little horse, BUT on the return trip, Aimee & Fanny and my brother & King Kong were in the wind. So we did get into a smooth canter. I had forgotten what a canter feels like. Oh! It was wonderful! I was very tired after the ride, but I didn't want it to end.
I hated leaving all the horsey activities but I had another date, one with my son. I promised him I would roller skate with him. I find it quite simple to stay upright upon 4 horse's feet, but if you put me on wheels I am a disaster. I took a skating lesson last week, so now I test my skills. My skills are not good, but for the very first time, I did not fall down once Saturday night. Feels good to stay off the floor. LOL.

Then Sunday was the perfect day to give thanks for all the wonderful friends I have made and all the blessings I share.
You guys are like family, I had so much fun, but I still missed you!!!
I will read all of my blogs within a few days. I look forward to reading about what you have been up to while I was away.
I hope your weekend was beautiful and blessed!!!

My son has ridden Scotty for several days now. The last two days we have walked up and down the street. Scotty walks slowly and my son misses Fancy's little get up and go attitude. But I told him Scotty is better for him right now. Wednesday, he finally got Scotty to speed up a bit. It was nothing more than a slight upgrade in his walk. He can't get Scotty to run yet. It is so funny. But I feel better that Scotty doesn't just take off. One day my son might get him to run a little. LOL. I am not in a hurry for that.
While I walk with them, Fancy is pitching a fit, rearing, kicking, screaming. She really does not like being left behind. When I know my son and Scotty are working together, I can bring Fancy along. But she will have to wait just a little and let things work out.

Voted in honor of our special HC friend Hi Tech Image #40041. I have been out of town since 1am last night. It is now 6:30pm and I just got home and logged in to HC to find blogs informing me we have lost yet another precious friend. We are sad for Marion. We have enjoyed reading about HT in his HOTM run blogs. Each horse here deserves HOTD and HOTM. Please vote for HT diligently, so he can win November HOTM.

Fancy is leaving a Peaceful, loving, Sunday nights vote.

My Fancy is not spending every waking hour in Scotty's face now. She is eating again and wondering around as normal. She even stands all the way across the corral away from Scotty now.
Fancy and I had our first ride out with more than one horse today. What a ride it was. Fancy was very excited! She had to be first every moment and she left everyone behind with out any hesitation or care. King Kong, Trigger, and one of my brother's friends came to our house and we rode out for a while. Fancy stopped to urinate beside the road and the guys kept going. When she completed her business, she hopped up and just pitched a fit because she was not in front anymore. I had to get onto her for a bit. But, when were back in first place she was happy again. King Kong was on his best behavior today and my brother was soooo happy with him. All the horses were very good today. Except that one indecent when Fancy got upset for not being in the lead.
After Fancy and I returned, my son rode Scotty bareback and groomed him. Scotty seems to be very happy with my son handling him. My son is very happy too. I will post some new photos of Scotty and my son soon.

Q: Why do potatoes make good detectives?
A: Because they keep their eyes peeled.

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?
