How We Met

I had wanted a horse for a long time, my parents and I were about to give up searching for one when I saw her picture in a horse sale magazine.We drove over 4 hours one way to see her and ended up buying her.Her name was Angel at the time, but I think the people there called her just the opposite. Blossom was never trained well so most of what she knows now, I taught her.We also think that se has been abused,she has scars and even an indention in her neck!Now she is very happy and perhaps I shold say spoiled?!There are more pictures at the bottom of the page:).

Q: Why do potatoes make good detectives?
A: Because they keep their eyes peeled.

Today's photo was taken September 28, 2011. Fancy is performing the only trick that I know I have taught her. I say stump and she will put her front feet onto that old tree stump.

How was your weekend? We enjoyed a nice cool Carolina weekend here. Fancy's hooves had grown out and were beginning to chip, so I decided to try my hand at rasping. I had the tools for over a year, but I was afraid to try. I looked up how to trim hooves on youtube and I did it! I did as little as possible since it was my first time. Made my back hurt, but no more chipping hooves for now. I was very glad they didn't need to be trimmed, only shaped up. I tell you if you ever try it, you will appreciate a farrier with a strong back, LOL. Have you ever tried to do a horses hooves? If you have, how did you come out on the job?

“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;~)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
The Horse
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
(Ronald Duncan, "The Horse," 1954)

Voted :~)

I tried the bareback mounting again yesterday. Didn't work out. So I used the tractor tire again. Once mounted, Fancy listened very well. We walked around in the corral and even did some leg yields. It was so much fun!

You have a Blessed day and please keep Paula(horse is Lena #216601) in prayer as she handles the loss of her father and travel.

Fancy and Frances are leaving you a Wednesday vote.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful and cute friend Pixie Dust♥ We love you little girl♥

Many of you already do this, but I finally got up my nerve to do something different. I rode Fancy bareback for a few minutes. She was very lazy, but that is because we were in the coral. I did not worry for her laziness, because she did not buck me off, which I was very happy for and appreciated :~)
This was the first time in over 10 years that I have ridden bareback. I have never been able to mount without assistance. Can anyone help me to know how to mount without a block or something. I tried to jump up, that did not work. I tried to use her neck. That did not work. How do you do it? What do I need to do?

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.

How are you doing? It is great to hear from you again! I love all your new photos. They are new, aren't they? How amazing that you and Blossom can now jump 3 feet. Jumpins is so much fun, isn't it?

Is it hot there or still cold? Last week we had several nights of frost and they killed our vegetable garden. I still had some plants inside so I've now planted them and the slugs and squirrels are working hard at destroying all of them too. I'm beginning to think that perhaps we're not supposed to have a garden this year!

Pippin gave me a good scare on Saturday. We got a phone call from someone asking if our horse was on the highway. I thought to myself, "Well, of course not. Pippin's tethered on the lawn for his afternoon munch." So, I went out to make sure, and the rope had come loose. No horse in sight!

Pippin NEVER goes to the highway and that day was our valley's annual yard sale. The traffic was crazy (for our area) and he not only went down to the highway but had crossed it a couple of times almost getting hit. Someone had kindly stopped and was keeping an eye on him. They were quite relieved to see me coming because they had no idea to whom he belonged. Pippin looked up placidly and then went back to munching on the nice fresh grass.

Yikes, that is NOT happening again! I wonder if he heard all the commotion and wanted to investigate. He loves new things and lots of people and noise.

On a lighter note, I took Prince driving again last week. A couple of friends rode with me and Melian ran alongside. It was SO much fun. I think that I like driving almost as much as riding. It's yet another way to enjoy a horse. Of course, I enjoy driving Pippin all the time but it's not quite as powerful as having a big draught horse going at full gallop.

Prince galloped through the mud and puddles and we were a right mess! Mud splattered on our faces and all over our clothes. I was filming with my little pocket camera but I had to cover it every time we splashed through a puddle. I uploaded it but it's not yet showing. In the meantime I posted some photos of Prince in harness on his page. Eddie has a new photo too.

So, how is everything there? Any good horsey time? I hope you had a great weekend and no scares like mine. Here's a vote for you.

P.S. If you're interested, check out my latest Melian video. It is called, "Melian: Speeding Saluki." It's on YouTube and the Dog Channel.

hey Blossom!
I'm sorry that I did not return your vote on the 22nd. It's been so busy and crazy around here. Moving is a BIG job.
So how have you and Blossom been? Any fun summer plans?
My Dad and I are going to fly out to Louisville KY on the 7th. and get home on the 11th. We want to check out the area and maybe find a rental.
Right after we get back we'll be heading out on the 13th to move down there. See what I mean by "crazy".
I only have one day home (and even then I'll be in a wedding on that one day) before we head out again. Whew!!!
Well, gotta go. Hope you and Blossom are doing great!
Have a great week!
Left a vote!

L & M

P.S. I think anyone has the ability to become a great rider if they put their whole heart into it despite what some trainers might say. So go out there and become the best rider that you can. I know that you can do it.:)
