HI! I wanted you to see how cute the winner of our costume contest is so I loaded some pix at the bottom of Fancy's page. The first place winner is the very first photo there. Look quick because I will have to delete those photos soon ")

I also entered Fancy in the HorseChannel costume contest. If you have time, please vote for Fancy each day. I know it is a bit much to ask right now because I am off line soooo much.
I am trying to get straightened out. I have yet another hurdle to cross. This Friday September the 27 I am having my first carpal tunnel release surgery. Soon as it heals, I am expecting to have the procedure on the left wrist. I will be offline Friday and off and on line depending on how my hand or wrist feels and if I am woke because I will be taking my pain meds. I have grown into a huge wimp when it comes to pain.
I have no idea how the coming days will be for me. I plan to be back with you soon. Fancy misses sharing her regular perceptions with you ♥

17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:

Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."

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 ✞

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♥

"The guardian angels of life fly so high as to be beyond our sight, but they are always looking down upon us." (Jean Paul Richter)

PLEASE READ, CORRECTION TO PREVIOUS BLOG: I made an error in dates listed in my blog. I also somehow accidentally lost Joanna's first name in some of my blogs.

The CORRECT INFORMATION is Joanna Helen Wicke January 1, 1977-September 23, 2011.

I guess I am not very reliable at 3:30 in the morning. I appreciate Marion and Indy calling this to my attention and I apologize for the error.

There are a few active HorseChannel members that remember Joanna. If you remember Joanna, PLEASE share a blog on Fancy's page. I would love to read what you have shared with Joanna during her short stay here.

Hi! I hope you are doing well today looking forward to a horsey weekend and celebrating this Easter weekend. We are in a 3 day stretch of cold rain & I am freezing :) We are not expecting warmer temps, but we do expect the rain to clear up this afternoon. Then we can have some fun.

Enjoy a Blessed Easter season

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:
“Lord, You make me as honest as the horse I ride.” (unknown)

The day I met Fancy:
March 9, 2009,8am: found classified add for 10 month TWH. That evening, we traveled to a VA farm. The owner pointed Fancy out, my heart immediately fell in love with this untouched filly. I saw a beautiful future in this long legged, woolly, running like crazy, with her big round bulging belly, filly. The drive from NC to VA was not in vain. The owner and his sons drove all horses into the barn and then ran them out, except one, Fancy. They got the halter on her and the fight was on. After finally reaching the trailer, it took forever to get her in the trailer. The guys had to lift her up and push her in. Ok that done, the sun had parted with us and we were on our way home.
We stopped at the convenience store and I looked in to check on what I planned to be my new best pal. She was not happy, but doing fine.
In the dark of the night, Fancy would not back out of the trailer. She actually decided she would rather lay down in the floor of the trailer rather than do anything we wanted her to do. We had already moved the partition to the side of the trailer to give her space, but we had to work around the center bar in between the back doors. Fancy would not get up for nothing in the world. I wanted to leave her there for the night, but feared she would hurt herself on the partition or something when she did get up. We carefully pulled her out without hurting her. I put her in a stall for the night so I would not fear her getting hurt because she did not know her surroundings. I did not sleep all that night!
Each day there after, I would sit in her presence for a while and when she showed signs of relaxing, I went in to catch her. She was tricky, but so was I. LOL. She slowly learned and gave me her trust.
Each day with Fancy is as exciting as the very first.

“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.

Buckab is lovely as ever! It is great to hear from you. I read your blog here, seems like you are recovering from much. I am glad you get to spend time with Buckab.

We did visit Trigg after school today. He didn't even attempt to run and I got the old too tight halter off of him. We replaced it with an old blue halter I had in our outbuilding. It looks more comfy than the old tight halter he had on.
His brand new halter is blue and he will use it after we get him a good nice bath. I hope it fits. His head is kind of big. LOL. It looks like it might fit. We will see.

My evening was spent with my dirty Fancy. Even dirty she is still my queen of hearts :) Fancy & I took a short walk around the neighborhood today.

Hello All
Hi Friends, I know I haven't been around for a long while. I guess to update all, she lost her foal in april it turned out to be twins so it was a heart break.
We survived it well. There have been a lot of family issues as well as health issues on my end as well. everything seems to be controlable for now.
BuckAb is doing well had a special treat on her bday this week. Her companion that we rescued Brown Eyes now has a new home. He is now showing with his new owner, she is 8 or 9 yrs old & very good to him. he is being shown wester, english & lower level jumping. they make such a beautiful pair. So proud of his accomplishments w/ Abby. BuckAB & I pretty much just relax these days. We go out by the lake & have our lunch and enjoy the serenity of God's grace & take long walks. Being not as healthy as i was b4, just being able to go out with her is a blessing!She can take me to places that i otherwise couldn't get to see, & riding her helps strenghten my legs up & helps me retain my balance a lil better.
Hoping all has been well in our absence, catch up again soon...
BuckAB & BJ

“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?
Love Fancy Queen of Hearts ♥ & Frances

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Take Nothing For Granted:
“Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends.” (C. Milley)

Fancy & I leave a Monday morning RETURN to HC vote!!!
I hope & pray no one was harmed in the earthquake & each family is safe & in good spirits.

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 I had to test my skills. My skills are not very good, but at least for the very first time, I did not fall down once Saturday night. Feels good to stay up 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!!!

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.

“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.

My donkey hee, my donkey haw,
My donkey sits on a pile of straw.
My donkey likes to eat the best,
but most of all my donkey like to rest.
Tangalayo, come little donkey come, tangalayo, come little donkey come.
My donkey come, my donkey go,
My donkey, he say yes, but he mean no.
My donkey come to me today,
But might tomorrow go the other way.

I did get to rinse Fancy off with just water. She looks clean and I can put the fly on her now. We rode around Thursday and visited neighbors. This is beginning to be fun. Fancy likes to walk and we have to work on her patience. She only likes to be still when I let her eat grass.

Please help spread this message I received earlier today!!!!
HEALTH ALERT !!! **
I just got an e.mail from ACTHA saying they were rescheduling the World Record Ride for the Mustangs because of an out break of EHV-1 in 6 Western states. I looked it up, the states affected so far are Arizona, Utah, California, Idaho, Washington and Colorado. The infected horses had all attended a National Cutting Horse Assoc. show in Utah in early May. Several horses have already been euthanized. Mine get vaccinated yearly but I just called my vet to see how effective the vaccine is. She said no vaccine is 100% effective and recommended a booster shot 6 mo. after the initial dose just to be on the safe side. Please help me spread the word on HC as there are many members from the west. Please be careful. lotsalov D&J

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, HE IS RISEN!!!:
John 20
THE PURPOSE OF JOHN'S GOSPEL
30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31 But these are written that you may believe[b] that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

Q: How does Easter end?
A: With the letter R!

Q: What’s yellow, has long ears, and grows on trees?
A: The Easter Bunana!

Wow! What a nice Day! The ground has dried enough for some horsey activities. My son rode his bike around the block and Fancy and I followed. This was the first time she had been around the block in months and she was hyper for the ride. When my son would speed up, Fancy would speed up. She was a little fire ball the first 2 times around. The third time she was lots better and beginning to settle down. A motorcycle came by and I took her into a vacant lot so she could see it and not be afraid. Fancy just watched them go by. I think she would have been fine if we had stayed on course, but I didn't want to take any chances. Then we rode into the woods a little. Fancy didn't want to walk in the woods. She did settle down though. We got some fun photos today too. Well, we had a blessed evening and it was worth it.
Back in March 2011, my oldest son (whom is in Afghanastan) mailed me a horse made of Lapis stone from the caves of Afghanastan. I loaded a photo of my little Lapis stone horsey on the bottom of Fancy's page.
Do you have any special rides scheduled for this Easter holiday?

John 18
Jesus Before Pilate
28 Then the Jewish leaders took Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness they did not enter the palace, because they wanted to be able to eat the Passover. 29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, “What charges are you bringing against this man?”

30 “If he were not a criminal,” they replied, “we would not have handed him over to you.”

31 Pilate said, “Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law.”

“But we have no right to execute anyone,” they objected. 32 This took place to fulfill what Jesus had said about the kind of death he was going to die.

33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?”

34 “Is that your own idea,” Jesus asked, “or did others talk to you about me?”

35 “Am I a Jew?” Pilate replied. “Your own people and chief priests handed you over to me. What is it you have done?”

36 Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.”

37 “You are a king, then!” said Pilate.

Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

38 “What is truth?” retorted Pilate. With this he went out again to the Jews gathered there and said, “I find no basis for a charge against him. 39 But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release ‘the king of the Jews’?”

40 They shouted back, “No, not him! Give us Barabbas!” Now Barabbas had taken part in an uprising.

JESUS PRAYS FOR ALL BELIEVERS
20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you[e] known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
