How We Met

Toast was boarded at the stable where I took lessons. He had the weirdest name before I bought himwhich drew me to him. His name was A1 like the brand on his left hip.

I only rode him one time. I was so desperate for a horse, any horse, that I wasn't going to turn down one so close to my reach.

About a month after I bought him, he hit his terrible twos. I thought about selling him because every time I'd try to get on, he's throw me right back off again. But luckily, my trainer talked me out of selling him and into a few good training techniques and he ended up becoming the best horse I could have ever wished for. I got lucky.

I actually bought him as a hunter/jumper, dressage horse because when he was two (the year I purchased him) he was 14hh (still eligible for the pony hunter division) and he had that lean thoroughbred build. As the years went by, however, he got bulkier and bulkier like his Quarter Horse father and a little too thick to get over taller jumps. I still kept pushing him to be English though. He was quite successful in low hunter (3 1/2 feet or lower), dressage, and QH Hunter, but this wasn't what I wanted. If I was going to do jumping I wanted them to be big jumps at fast speeds so eventully I switched to Western.

Ever since he has been extremely successful in western showmanship, trail, western horsemanship, and western pleasure. I'm so glad he's mine

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 ♥

It's a snow storm here!! LOL!!
The horses are loving it tho...Lady is doing great, she was running like a wild, young, crazy horse out in the snow. I just realized how much teeth she gots for her age. Im glad I've only had her teeth floated once. My mom told me a story about her friend that had a senior horse, and she floated her horse's teeth like three times a year...and than ran out of teeth to float, so they had to put him down at the age of 23yr. =[
I hope the power doesn't go out...its really snowing here...ttyl~mj and 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.

Happy Thursday Toast
Well, our snow storm has passed & is now headed east. It was fun while it lasted. We don't get snow in the Bay Area in Northern California very often (except on the higher peaks). The last time was 19 years ago in 1990. Rosie was boarded down in Danville at that time & it snowed there too. Anyway, we are expecting rain tonight & thru the weekend.
Have a wonderful day & stop by to see Rosie & Kayla.

Sorry, I haven't written all week. I was sick for most of it but I'm doing fine now. And SUCCESS! I managed to give Pippin his ID chip. I got a tranquilizer from the vet and it worked a miracle. Of course, it had to be injected too but that was a lot easier and quicker than the ID chip.

I didn't know how long it would last so I actually did it before the tranquilizer fully kicked in. The effects lasted a long time. He was dopey and unsteady on his feet for about 4 hours. I have a feeling that perhaps it was a bit too much for his size but he's fine.

Today was super cold. Last night was in the single digits and when I changed Pippin's water this morning the splashes that landed on me froze instantly. Where's summer when you need it? At least it kills all the parasites and nasty bugs.

Last weekend Pippin took me in the cart up the mountain and then he and Melian raced each other. I managed to capture it on video and I posted it on YouTube. It's called, "Pippin's Wild Ride". I think you might enjoy it.

And while you there check out Melian's new video, "The Bliss of being Saluki".

How's everything there? Cold too? Thanks again for helping Shadowfax win hotd last weekend. Here's a vote for you and have a great week. ttyl

Our family decorated the tree yesterday, my baby boy really enjoyed this! But I couldn't find my outside decorations:( Fancy was so sweet when I went to feed her. She rears and twirls around when she sees me coming in her direction. And I wondered if it was a test of "Whose in Charge", I discovered by her actions when I get to her, she only misses me and wants me near. Because when I get there she is submisive and sooo sweet, when I get to her she gently blows into my nostrils, which means she accepts me. And I blow back, then puts her head close to me and she is just sooo sweet.

How does your horse greet you? Here is a "Christmas day will be here before you know it" vote.
