How We Met

We had been looking and had just bought a little buckskin filly, (Doll) so I e-mailed the woman that had this one (helping someone that couldn't take care of her to find her a good home) that we had found one close to home already so we wouldn't be getting her's. The woman joked and said something like "But you do know she wants a companion...and I have it!!! My husband decided she was right and so this little filly came about the first of the year!

I know we are probably crazy but what fun to have two!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: HAPPY TURKEY MONTH!
I am most thankful for God's blessings of precious family, friends, having my needs met, and being able to come close to having most of the things that I want in this life.

If any one rode for Veterans Day and wants to be added to the Veterans Day page please let me know!


I logged in Saturday morning, and my family yelled at me to come on, let's go! We went to VA taking furniture to my oldest son. It was wonderful to see him again! This was the first time he ever cooked anything for us. He cooked a nice breakfast for us.

It was very hard to keep from using my right hand after the brace and bandages were removed. I had to back down many times because I made my wrist hurt a lot. I said I would not do anything after church today because I wanted to blog. So here I am.

A wild cat had babies at Buttercup's farm. She left one baby to die. We took in the abandoned kitten and it almost died. Did we have some friends that prayed for him and a vet staff that really feel in love with that little kitten. Today he looks normal, eating, and pouncing all over the place.

One evening a young lady came calling. She wants me to teach her all about horses! I am pretty excited. I told her I would not be able to do much till after my wrist surgery in December. Her response was for me to take my time and heal up completely because she wants me all the way well and ready!

My oldest son and little Cowboy have been riding Fancy & Trigger. My oldest son does not know how to ride Fancy. He drives her with both hands and they look like an airplane. I tried to tell him how to ride her, but he said she will not turn for him and she rides like a bus. I told him when I am able, I will just have to show him!

I want to ride! I think I will be able to get in a ride before the end of December surgery date, if the weather works with me.

Thanks for being great HC pals. I do miss my daily blogs, and I may be able to blog a little more until the end of December, depending on my wrist. I can't wait till spring 2014!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to be like a little kid when time comes and I go outside and do what ever I want to do!!!!

Be Blessed Have a wonderful evening ♥

I hope you stop back in soon!!!

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 ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Let There Be Peace:
Please keep the Sandy Hook Elementary School community in Newtown, Connecticut in prayer. Also pray for the safety of all children, for evil does not respect boundaries.

Matthew 2:16-18
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
18 "A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."

 10: And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
 11: For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Q: Who delivers the cat's Christmas presents ?

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Thank A Veteran : "This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” (Elmer Davis)

I hope you gals and guys are saddling up Saturday and/or Sunday in support of our Veterans. People who give or gave their lives for others each day they served, when they really did not have to do so. Wow, what amazing people they are.

My granddad was in WWII and my oldest son has served in the Afghanistan wars, working on communications devices. I have one cousin serving in the navy, that was injured during the attack against the United States Navy destroyer USS Cole on October 12, 2000.

We all are affected by the military in some way.
No need to be shy! Know a veteran, share and show love & support! Share interesting military facts, quotes, and experiences on Fancy's Veteran's Day page! Don't forget to leave a blog letting me know if you have a photo to add! Ask your HorseChannel friends to participate in Sunday's HorseChannel trail ride.)

No ride today, it was very chilly and windy :(

Does anyone remember reading last month, about a nationwide Ride to Remember Veterans during Veteran's Day weekend, Nov. 10-11, 2012? How would you guys like to have our own HorseChannel ride in honor of Veteran's Day? We can chose one day that we all will ride on, even if it is only for a few minutes or just to sit on the horse during the Veteran's holiday. Then we could share our pics from that day and share our story of the day. If you agree would Sunday November the 11 be ok for our ride date?

November is a time of thanks. Thanks should be part of our every day lives all year long. Let us be thankful for our friends and loved ones. Let us be kind one to another. Cruelty has no place among true friends.

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:
"The riding of young horses is an excellent nerve tonic." (Geoffrey Brooke)

Fancy leaves a good night VOTE 4 YOU :~)
Please vote Lady Aristocrat 232456 for HOTD
It was a lovely day until the rains came in. There was a long storm that recently ended. It feels really nice outside these days.
Trigger was blind in one eye before we got him. Monday his blind eye was very cloudy. Today the vet told me Trigger is fine long as he is in no pain. He is such a great kids horse. I hate that something happened to his eye and I pray that I can take good care of him from now on.

Please visit Sassy Sapphire #193884 and leave an encouraging word. From what I can tell, her blog to me says Sassy Sapphire's owner lost her father this past Sunday morning.

One of my friends was out last Saturday at one of the state parks riding and there was an accident. Her friend dismounted to help and her friend's palomino TWH walked off. They were on the news tonight asking for help to find the missing horse. Please pray that they find Jasmine in good health very soon.

Very Important Message from Logan #237047: Could you please spread the word that my wrist is in really bad condition and I can't vote for people today! It is swelled up pretty bad and moving it hurts! Please spread the word!

Have a blessed and peaceful night
