How We Met

My son & I were working at a local ranch for riding and lessons. My son started riding Shoeshine regularly from the day the horse first came to our ranch. This summer the boss offered him to us as she is moving to a new ranch and didn't want to take him. We are just thrilled and love him so much. He has been ours for about six months now and we have formed a wonderful bond with him..

Love the name..
I love the picture too. I left you a vote. I did want to say something. I noticed that Shoeshine has dark circles under his eyes. I know this may sound funny but I would have a vet come out to do a CBC to check for anemia. I mare Starr was like that when I first got her. I never noticed the circles until I took her pictures and she would fall asleep while grooming her and saddling. She even almost fell over one day when I picked up her front foot for cleaning. Now she's been on Red Cell and is great. Even in her newer pictures you can see that the dark circles are gone. I'd check into it if I were you. Here's my other website if you want to see the difference

Just daydreaming about riding this spring and thinking: I only have my little "Fancy" horse right now and I think I will really enjoy riding her this spring, but if you have access to more than one, please tell me which is your favorite to ride and why, if you are like me and only have one, I would like to know what you like most about that one.
Tuesday while I fed Fancy she stood at the gate and when I went to exit she tried to follow me. I knew it, she wants to go out with me,LOL. It was barely over 30 degrees so I promised her a better day. Fancy got her better day Wednesday! We have had such cold days Wednesday felt like spring and it was just in the 40's. I cleaned up, groomed her, went over some of our old lessons, which to my surprise she did right off, just like we never missed a day at doing them. Then her favorite, we went out. Fancy leaves you an 'it has been a Better day' vote!

I can visualize him bending and looking at you for his treat, that is sooo funny, and just to think you taught it to him and he fully knows what it means,"TREATS" LOL.
Thanks for visiting and voting for Fancy.
I had fun last night wrapping presents for my family. I wish Fancy could have somehow been involved. My family say I think I am supposed to include a horse in everything,LOL. We don't have an overabundance but we are great with what we have! Fancy says,"Be Merry and Bright for Santa is soon to come" and she gives you a vote.
