FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"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!

A dry windy Monday vote for you;)
I guess moma nature isn't finished wrecking havoc on this earth because of the storms in America this past weekend. Even though these things go on, we still find little moments of happiness:) I had my moment this morning. I worked with Fancy then rode her around in the corral. She now walks off at the slightest squeeze of my thighs. She is sooo smart. And she comes to a complete halt when I say whoa, (4 times out of 5) and I don't even have to lift the reins and pull. I can even lower my hands even more when direct reining her. Things went so well I decided to mount her in the back yard and see how she responded. Well she was the same and I rode her in the back yard for a few minutes and then took that bit out of her mouth and let her eat all the grass she wanted and then I walked her around the block. Sometimes I can't believe how she amazes me!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"People with horses are terrific!" (me)

I see you are kind of new here and again, I welcome you, your horses are lovely.

Thank you so much for visiting and voting for Fancy. So far, I do read all of my blogs and respond to each one. I hope I can continue to do this because it is soooo much fun to have so many horse loving friends. I have never had friends like the ones here on HorseChannel!
And I hope you will enjoy HorseChannel a lot!

You asked about the HOTM. I think you have to get HOTD first. I think that HOTD is awarded to the horse that gets the most votes the prior day. And HOTM is awarded to the horse that gets the most votes that prior month. If you want to earn HOTD you have to make a lot of friends and vote for them and blog to let them know you have voted for them and tell them you are interested in HOTD for your horse.

I hope this has helped you. Please visit Fancy and Tirnanog again if you like:) We left a vote for both of your profiles:) Have a great day!

Looking for a new home
Hi Everyone. I'm looking for a new home. I'm very lonely and missing my horse buddies that I stayed with for all of my six (6) years. My present owner can't afford another horse right now so after a lengthy conversation, she decided to sell me to a good home. I look forward to trail rides and being with other horses. Please let my owner know if you are interested. I'm registered APHA & the price is $2,500. I look forward to hearing from y'all. Tuff.
P.S. Here's a vote for Dixie. You're very pretty.

Come visit me, Tuff Bar Streke.

I had a great time today out with my Fancy. I have left her warm and dry in her stall awaiting the rain (possibly mixed snow) late tonight. We leave for you "a very chilly Friday night in NC" Christmas vote.

We didn't get to walk yesterday because the men came to cut the large tree down and it took all evening. They got the tree down and hauled off the top part. They are coming back with some equipment to load the bottom half cause it is tooo big. They are going to make something with the wood so they couldn't cut it down. This was an excellent experience for Fancy because she was afraid at first. About 20 minutes into the sawing she calmed down and didn't even pay them any attention. I was so proud of her. Everything is a learning experience for our horses, which can be good or bad.

On this grand Monday morning we leave a vote for you in honor of Fancy's last day as QUEEN Of NOVEMBER. Life is short and friends are few, we appreciate HorseChannel and all the friends we have made thus far. LOVE & JOY TO THE NEXT REINING HOTM!!!
