FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.” (Edwin Way Teale)

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.

PEACE STARTS WITH A SMILE;~)
HAVE A BLESSED DAY ♥

Fancy is here with a cool first day of Autumn vote!

Has anyone seen the new show, America's Best Trail Horse? I have seen the first two shows. I love it! If you have seen it, what do you think? It kind of reminds me of Craig Cameron's Extreme Cowboy Race.

Good morning vote for ya. I groomed Fancy this morning and cleaned her stall before I fed her. Now it's after 1pm and it's snowing pretty hard.

I won't be posting me brother's yearling filly after all. This man couldn't feed all of his horses, so he gave my brother a yearling last month. My brother lost his job so he gave her to a friend. Right now she is sick, only eating a little and sometimes she won't stand up. He had a vet check her and said to make a sling to hold her up and keep trying to feed her.

Hi, here's a vote from Fancy. We made it to the middle of this week without a day of school due to the snow. Maybe it will be warm enough today to clear more of the back roads. I sure would have loved to ride Fancy in the snow. Hopefully we will get the chance in years to come.
Please vote for HOTD: Masters horse#154980 and
Zippin the Dust horse #167617
Have a wonderful winter day!

Fancy is starting Monday with a vote for you. Stay warm and have a pleasant day. Just one more month of the cold cold weather. Then we can get out, love our horses, and ride. Yippeee! I love riding at Morrow Mtn State Park here in NC, the trails are nice and the scenery is lovely. I can imagine the first time I ride Fancy there! Please, tell me about your favorite place to ride, and do you plan to ride there this spring?

What have you guy's been up to?
To my surprise, Saturday turnded out lovely after all, and I did spend quality time with Fancy. She got her grooming and we went out,I walked beside her and she led some too. When we returned, we practiced her moving with me at walk and jog and whoa. Several weeks ago when we tried this she became very silly at the jog and started playing. This time she actually did it. I was surprised especially knowing the cool windy weather makes horses feel playful. Fancy leaving you a vote for enjoying a nice relaxed Sunday.

Go there to sign the online petition ''Save the Wild Horses Campaign'' to help Cloud's herd!!

my lesson:
I rode Magic, she did good. It was only me,Taylor, and the new girl today, everyone else dont come because of the cold. We did the basics, and key hole and barrels. I dont know if I like Magic as much as I use to, she trips all the time!! Talyor was bucked off from Victory(she was being so bad caz she has not been rode in a few weeks) so Talyor did a roll over Victory's head. She was screaming after she fell, she hates the sight of blood. It was really not that bad, just a bloody nose, she's ok =] Thank God!!
Im not sure, but I think Lady might be going blind in her right eye. How do I tell?? Caz when I come in the barn she turns her left eye towards me. ttyl~Mia @ Lady~

It rained today and now its starting to snow...uhhh =Sorry, I was on yesterday, but dont get to do any voting. I got a letter in the mail, it was about Cloud's herd in Montana. The letter says this,
'' The future of Cloud's famous herd has been severely jeopardized by the recent six day roundup of the mustangs by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). A federal contractor-- who previously served jail time for caturing and selling wild horses for slaughter--was hired by the BLM to conduct this devastating roundup of Cloud's herd. A helicopter chased the family bands of these poor mustangs, including a week old foal, down the mountainside, for distances up to 12 miles. Not only were the horses forced out of the mountains nonstop over six days, but temperatures most days reached the mids 90s. A few mustangs avoided capture by hiding in treed areas, but even the brave and proud stallion, Cloud, was eventually rounded up with his family band. Could, like several others, was injured during the removal. Fortunately, he was eventually released, but many of his family members were permanently removed from the only homethey have ever known, their freedom gone forever. Cloud tried staying with them, but was driven from the coral area by men on horseback. As someone who believes in preserving our American mustangs, I know that you are as outraged as I am about this roundup. I'd would like you to please sign and return the enclosed stop the roundups! petition to Bob Abbey, the Director of the BLM. Because right now, the courts are failing to rule favorably on our lawsuits to save Cloud's herd and other wild horses from massive and unnecessary roundups.''

If you read it thanks.

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!!!

Fancy and Frances here leaving you an it's been wonderful reining as November HOTM vote. It has been a lovely Fri and Sat here in NC. We hope for more of this pleasant weather today. Both days we hung out in the yard with Fancy. Last night when I put her up my boys decided to take their Jack Russel, Bindi, for a walk up the street. Oh, this got to Fancy. She saw them walking toward the street and she twirled, looked at me, looked at them, reared, looked at me, lifted her head over the gate and looked at me. I knew she wanted to go. Fancy was saying come on and my boys were saying come on Mom. I felt bad, but it was getting dark and I had to put the water hose up, lock the shed, etc. I promised to accompany them another day because I don't like to walk Fancy out of the yard after dark. All in all our weekend has been great. We hope your weekend is all that and more!

Thanks so much for your loving response to my Friday blog. Please don't forget to visit and vote for Toby in McMinnville, OR as often as possible.
