“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 ♥

"Leap for Joy, Great is your reward in Heaven." (anonymous)

Lovely Carolina day to leave a vote for friends.

We are on our way back into the high temps. I rode Fancy around the neighborhood a few times accompanied by my son on his bicycle. He hasn't ridden Fancy for quite a few days because I am adjusting her to a new bit. It is a mild curb I bought last week. My son is more comfy with the curb bit. He had never used a snaffle until the first time he rode Fancy solo. He had trouble with the snaffle bit and he didn't like it. Fancy is very good with both bits but somehow I like the snaffle a little bit better until she fully understands the curb. I was surprised at how well she was today though.
IF you have experience transitioning a horsey pal from a snaffle to a curb, please share with me. You never know. Something you know could really help. This is my first time making this adjustment. The last horse I trained, I tried starting in the snaffle and he wouldn't take it in his mouth after the first day. So I tired a curb and he took it just fine every time, and we took our time and worked it out all the way. So I never had to make the adjustment. Fancy just goes with anything if I take my time and let her do her thing. Hope she stays that way. LOL
Happy Sunday evening!!!
We love you guys♥

Fancy is munching her way by with a vote from our stormy town. I am hoping that today is our last day of storms for a little while. I don't mine the rain, but we need some sunshine to.
It has been several months now that Fancy has shown a new behavior, that I did not teach her. Whenever she is locked in her stall, after I unlatch her stall gate, she takes her nose and pushes the gate open, then waits for me to enter with her wheelbarrow load of hay. I was very surprised when I saw she was not trying to escape. She just wanted her hay and she was happy. Believe it or not, this seems to help because I don't have to worry for opening the gate. I just roll that wheelbarrow right on in there and empty it. LOL! I wonder if she would do it if I had my camera man on hand, hmmmmm.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"A little boy's place, is on his mommy's horse" (Fancy's mommy)

Fancy is finally back with your Tuesday vote.
Monday night I sat down to vote for our friends and it started to thunder, so I had to shut the computer down. Sunday night I sat down to vote for our friends and I was soo tired, I just couldn't make it. So to bed, I went. Finally, looks like we are going to get the voting done!

My young son, has ridden Fancy for several days now. Everyday he ask to go out and ride. Reminds me of times when he was just old enough to speak. When his little eyes would open in the morning, first thing he would say,"I want my ridie.) Ridie is what he called the palomino pony he rode. He would ride that little palomino pony long as you would lead them around. And never wanted to go in. History repeats itself, I ask him, "are you ready to get down?", and he says,"No, I want to ride." Pity, we only have one horse now. But we will make it work. Hopefully we go to look at saddles today. This child has outgrown his saddle.
I made a video of him and Fancy, I will load it soon. Fancy just walked so slow with him and every now and then she would stop. I told him he has to make her keep walking. He is working on that. The more he rides her, the better she listens to him. Fancy gave him the sweetest hug after he dismounted. I hated I missed that photo. Since she sometimes walk so fast, I only let him ride her in the corral, because she walks lazy in the corral.
Oh, we did have a moment of excitement. Fancy heard something in the woods and she spooked with him. It frightened me, but he remembered the one rein stop and he did stop her! Very well, at that! And he said it didn't frighten him. I was glad. A few minutes later, two adult foxes and two juvenile foxes ran into Fancy's corral from the woods behind her stall. Since I know Fancy will stomp at them, I took him off her. She stood with us very calmly and didn't even pay the foxes any attention. The foxes stopped and looked at us and finally they turned back and ran into the woods. And Hollie, ran into the corral, ALONE, and Fancy let her stay there! What a doll;~)
Well, that is how things are here for now. They are keeping me very busy!
Summer is on now, time for fun! Stay safe and don't forget to share your fun with us.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, HE IS RISEN!!!:
The World Hates the Disciples
18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20 Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’[b] If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. 24 If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. 25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’[c]

Here is a vote from Fancy!

Monday evening I went out to spend some quality time with Fancy") I really needed that. We practiced some leg yields and backing with me in the saddle. Fancy was pretty good with the backing. It took a few attempts before she understood the leg yields. It takes a few tries but each time she does them better than the last time. After a few minutes I let her graze and just enjoy some quiet time together.
My saddle is very comfy with the new adjustments. It is easy to keep my heels down and I am not reaching for the stirrup! That felt good! I can't wait to use them for a longer ride and see how my knees feel.

Are you and your best equine pal doing anything special this week?

Gotta Saturday Night vote for you! I hope you have had as much fun as we have today! Today was bath day for Fancy. After her bath my son (on his bike) and I hand walked Fancy around the block. We let her graze before going home. I saddled Fancy and I rode her around the neighborhood and through the car wash:), while my son rode his bike. She surprised me by walking sooo slow the whole time. I couldn't believe it. I didn't even have to fight with her to go into our yard. She was just layed back and easy going! I was just surprised! I took tons of photos with my clean girl. Now she smells fresh too! I hated to put her into her corral. I hope she doesn't roll tonight:( I will see about that in the morning, LOL.

How are you today, did you have a nice weekend?

I would like to keep my Fancy shoe free, so I am considering purchasing hoof boots for Fancy. If anyone has any experience with these, please let me know about that. I would like to know about the ease of putting them on, if they come off easily in mud, how long they last, if they rub sores on the horses coronet or other area, did they have any effect on the hoof itself, do you think they are a good investment, and just any info you can share.
If you have anything to share or not I would like to personally thank you for giving me your attention and let you know I appreciate every friendly member I have met here. You are top notch horse lovers, the greatest!

Are you riding this weekend? I hope you are having fun what ever you are doing:)

Ok, I hope EVERYONE is enjoying a great weekend!
I have had an aweful week with my son being sick and personal issues. But as always my Fancy time has made all the bad things seem so small. God knows I love that little horse. I really need my horse. She is my blessing.
Today was the first time we rode out with Tirnanog! I was going to keep MISS Pants behind Tirnanog. Hoping she would settle down and walk slow. Tirnanog walks very slow and relaxed. Nothing seemed to phase him today. Well MISS Pants wasn't going for any slow walking mess. So I let her go and every now and then we would circle back and around Tirnanog, So we don't get too far ahead. I convinced her to walk through a few muddy water puddles in some driveways. We walked through the car wash, didn't get a wash though, LOL. Had fun stepping up a bank with a cement wall. Fancy has done this with out me on her. Today we did it together. Only problem, when we step down into the street, the last few times Fancy would jump instead of walk. Tirnanog was soo cool he just stepped up and down very easy like. The only thing that bothered Fancy today was a loud dirt bike. The guy saw her reaction and I was very thankful he turned and went the other way. My brother said he isn't to ride those on the streets any way. We stopped and let them graze for at least an hour and we stopped and talked to children and other people too. Fancy was attracted to the children. I was very impressed with her good behavior with them. Don't know how our future rides will be, but this one was a well needed breath of fresh air. I told my brother to get things ready so we can visit some state parks this fall. I think that will be even more fun!!!

A vote from stormy North Carolina. I just got in from a horse show. It was bad driving home in the storm. I didn't get to take Fancy because we took the hitch off the truck and didn't get the other one on yet. I was glad I didn't have Fancy out in this storm:)

I hope your weekend is going well:)

A cloudy Tuesdy vote from Fancy has been delivered to you:)

I think Fancy and I are ready for a short ride out with Tirnanog soon. Do you have a special ride planned before this summer is over? If so, please tell me about it!

Stopping by with a late evening vote:) Whew, I am tired. It has been a crazy strange day. But my Fancy time made it all well at the end of this day.
I have ridden Fancy three days straight now. Each day has gotten better. I pray this trend continues:) When I went out this afternoon Fancy was running around like something WILD! Bucking, jumping, rearing, and running! I looked at her and thouhgt maybe I shouldn't get on her today. Well I decided to work it out. In the corral we did some ground work and I mounted her. Rode about 5 minutes, she was listening very well:) So I dismounted and headed out into the yard. We did some more groundwork, then I mounted and she kept her head straight out and didn't move. She is a little stiff on the right side, so I decided to work on right circles. We done several small circles until she begin to listen calmly. As she relaxed and began to listen we made larger circles. Boy, this was better than yesterday! I decided to circle things like the tree, the dog lot, the shed and Fancy was very good. I even let her walk fast and I enjoyed it:) I wish I could have seen it!!!!! We went into the side yard and she did speed up when she thought we were going out of the driveway. More tight circles and back into the back yard, over and over until she calmed down. Since she wanted to go out, I headed to the other driveway and went out and up into the first driveway, did this a few times. Then we walked up and down the street a few times. Fancy didn't want to go in the upper driveway, so, I decided to take her up the street. I walked her past the other horses because I didn't know how she would act. She looked at them and kept going, like she was saying look at me! She ate some grass and then I asked her if she could be a good girl and ride me home past the other horses. Believe it or not, Fancy nodded her head up and down. I put her bridle back on and she stood perfectly still while I mounted and we walked home!!!!!!!!! The only problem I had was, again she didn't want to go in the drive. I gave her a tap on the shoulder and she went on:) I groomed her while she ate grass:) Now I am all cleaned up and tired:)

A vote for you on this lovely & hot Saturday!
Oh, Tirnanog has developed a strange habit. The last few times he has been ridden, after mounting him he bucks a few times and then looks back to see if you are still on him and then if you are still there, he walks on like nothing happens. HMMM, I wonder what is on his mind.
We saw the movie Avatar yesterday and it was better than I ever expected. I told my sons I was going to braid my hair and go out and plug it into Fancy's mane to see if we would bond. They laughed. Ha, they just didn't know, it worked. LOL. Now when I ride Fancy I am going to think I am plugged into one of those huge winged creatures soaring through the air!
Have you ever seen a movie that made you feel like that could be you on your horse? Well, that is my fantasy for the week:) What is yours?
