HI, we are in, what feels like unending days of cold & rain. I did pull out the heavy clothes today! Hopefully the rains will move out after tonight. I am ready for some clear sunny weather. I have to think back on Friday and honesty thank God for the sunshine we enjoyed this past Friday as Fancy and I picked Little Cowboy up after school.

Today being Columbus Day has me thinking upon the ways we travel. Ships and traveling across water are not for me. I am a total land lover. My favorite way to travel, long as the weather is good, is horseback of course! I know, You know I would say that. LOL! Have you ever traveled to the store, school, a relative, friend's home, or anywhere by horseback or horse pulled vehicle? If you have, what did you think of the experience? I wish I could ride every where by horse, but along with that I would like warm weather. LOL.

Have a peaceful night ✞

A special Thanks to Continetals Mystery for nominating Fancy for HOTD. Thank each of you who have left a vote on Fancy's page or even only visited to see what she was up to. Some of you wonder why I am so busy on HC each day possible. HC is a place where I can share the love of my horse with people who think like me. Many of you watched Fancy grow up, right here on HC. Every day is a new adventure for each of us and I enjoy sharing our adventures with you and reading of your adventures. In the knowledge of knowing that nothing last forever, I try not to take my horse for granted, but to celebrate my horse, Fancy Walk N That Way.

I will share the news of HOTD with Fancy. Maybe the rains will rest long enough for Fancy and I to enjoy a few minutes in her honor. I am breaking out extra Bucking Balls and I better stop at the store for apples!

Another rainy day vote for you ☁

“Hit the Trail!”

Fancy and Trigger are pawing your voter horseshow this morning. It is hard to fit two hooves on one vote button at the same time, but they seem to be working it out.
PLEASE vote HOTD! ★ Sunny 200644 ★

My brother said the man that gave Trigger to him said to use a snaffle bit. Tuesday I got Trigger out and worked with him a little to see how he responded to the snaffle bit. Little Cowboy wants to use a curb bit. I have noticed the curb bit is not working out between the two of them. I checked and Trigger will listen to either bit if you use it correctly. So I know it is a matter of getting my little one to listen and learn. I am hoping Little Cowboy will listen to me this time and learn to use the snaffle bit. Little Cowboy said he wants to work this out with Trigger so he will learn to use the snaffle. Then I groomed Trigger and let him graze in the back yard.
Next was Fancy's turn. She put her head onto the halter because she wanted OUT too. I have mailed our entry for the halter show at our local fair. We practiced for the halter classes. Fancy is also trying hard to learn to pivot on that right hind. Tuesday was the best yet. She almost turned completely around but she is slow to turn that right hind. Every now and then she will turn her body with out moving her right hind, then she ends up with her right leg twisted. I put her in the dirt to try it and she did a little better on turning that foot as she turns. So I am going to practice on the dirt until she understands that she can turn that foot as her body turns. I am not sure about this, I am learning too. Then Fancy enjoyed grass while I groomed her.

Are you enjoying these beautiful Autumn days with any horsey activities?
Enjoy a beautiful Autumn day :)

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!

Show update: Thursday Cowboy practiced for some events & carrying the flag on Trigger. Friday Fancy & Trigger visited the farrier. We cleaned tack & loaded the trailer Friday evening.
Now for the excitement! Saturday morning, I gave Trigger a bath. I can not clean him up the day before because he will roll extra hard to collect much dirt as he can. I got as much water off him as I could & loaded him in the trailer before he could get dirty. I was standing at the small door latching his halter, something poked out by my feet, I saw a fluffy red-ringed raccoon looking tail swish by my feet & disappear under the trailer. It was a FOX! I fastened the halter & went into the house. The fox stayed under the trailer. My BB gun is very weak. You can see the BB's fall to the ground when you shot it. We wanted the fox to leave, so we got the BB gun after it & it did not move. Several minutes later we saw it go under the drain pipe at the end of our driveway. I was a bit shaky after I realized I had been that close to the fox.
We left a bit later than expected. Fancy stood at the gate, looked square at my face & nickered. I felt like dirt to leave her. As we left she ran back & forth & whinnied loudly. I promised I would make it up to her.

We arrived in time for Cowboy & Trigger to warm up 30 minutes before the show. There were sheep & bulls around the arena this time. Last time there were only bulls. Trigger was not bothered by the bulls, but he did not cotton to the sheep. Cowboy & one of the adult men rode their horses up to the sheep & petted them through the fence. Cowboy dismounted & walked Trigger up to them first, then he rode him up to the sheep. Very smart Cowboy. After that Trigger was ok with the sheep.
Cowboy was galloping with a teen girl he met & he yelled whoa to Trigger & her horse stopped They both got a kick out of that.

Friday we picked up a rain poncho for the just in case. It came in handy as several rain showers passed through during the show.
Cowboy & Trigger won 1st place in Western Walk & Jog 12 & under, 2nd place in Youth Western Go As You Please 12 & under, 1st place in Youth Western Pleasure 12 & under, & 1st place in Youth Catalog Race 12 & under. They also entered the flag race, but his flag fell out of the sand at the very end.
At the end of the show Cowboy took his helmet off and put it on Trigger. I don't know if he thought Trigger needed it or what he was thinking. LOL.

Q: What did the pony say when he saw his rider carrying a bridle?
A: "Looks like reins a coming!"

Fancy & Trigger have voted for you on this wet and cloudy Carolina day.
My brother wanted to ride today. I wont be out knowing our area is expecting storms.
Have a nice weekend, if you enjoy a horse ride in the bright summer sun, stop by and share it with us.

Has any one noticed the changes occurring on HC? Like the non-horsey ads and some of the designs on a few pages are fresh and different. Looks like we will soon have the same format as DC. I have been trying to learn to get around on DC. The voting and blogging process is very slow for me. That is not good. I will keep trying at it. May be there is something I have to figure out. I want to be ready when the format arrives on HC. I am afraid I will not be able to find HC friends after the changes are made.

Did any one honor their dad with a father's day ride?
My husband had to work, so Sunday evening Cowboy & I took a ride through the woods & around the neighborhood. On the way home our neighbor was having a party so Cowboy and I rode home & attached the buddy seat to Fancy's saddle and back we went to ride children at the party. There was lots of giggling and squealing going on. Cowboy asked the girls which horse they liked best and the answer was Fancy. Cowboy told them that was because they had not ridden his horse.
We returned home & worked on riding both horses around the house and outbuilding in different directions to keep them tuned into the fact that they will be leaving one another on occasions. That was a good lesson.
Cowboy has tapped into a hidden talent in Trigger. He had Trigger running beside him and halt, just like in the shows. This little horse has some training under his belt. I sure am pleased with Trigger so far. And Little Cowboy is very happy with his little old horsey.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Cowboy Definitions:
1. Brand Artist - A rustler who alters brands with a running iron.
2. Brash - Brittle.
3. Breachy - A term applied to unruly oxen.
4. Bread Jerker - Adam's apple.
5. Brick in One’s Hat - To be drunk. That old man’s got one heck of a brick in his hat.
6. Brisk Up - To come up with life and speed, take an erect or bold attitude.
7. Broke in Two - A horse bucking.
8. Bronc Buster - A cowboy who could tame wild horses. Contrary to popular thinking, not all cowboys could ride just any horse, though most could ride any broken mount. But the bronc buster, also called a "bonc peeler" and a "bronc breaker," was a breed apart. These men, with a special type of "horse sense" earned not only the esteem of the other cowboys, but usually better wages.
9. Broken Wind - A lung infection in horses.
10. Broomtail - A long, bushy-tailed range mare, usually unbroken. Also called a "broomie."

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! Fancy and I hope you have enjoyed a beautiful Father's Day!

I could not wait to tell you about our newest adventure. But when I got home, I was so tired and my rear was so tender from sitting all day. I just wanted to go to bed. So now I can tell you about Friday's ride at Uwharrie National Park, our longest ride ever! Fancy did notice that we were yet again in a new place. But she was very calm, only looking around and checking out the grazing quality, which she approved. The farm was such a comfy place, I could stay there forever.
As we began our ride, all the horses were slightly excited. Once on the trial it was all natural forest, and I mean natural. I guess all the past storms and wet conditions caused many trees to fall. There were veery rocky areas. You would be surprised at the number of snapping turtles in one area of the river & all sizes! When they hear you coming, they plop into the water from their lazy sunning on logs and rocks. In a dense part of the forest, I looked to my right and saw 3 to 4 deer leaping so quietly and elegantly through the trees.
Each horse took turns leading, middle, last. We did canter in places. There were many streams for splashing water on hot bellies & quenching thirst.
At lunch, one horse has to share his owner's grilled cheese sandwich. I thought that was funny. At every break, they get carrots, store bought horse treats, and sometimes apples. I never seen so many treats. LOL! At first Fancy didn't know about the carrots, or it was the fact that a stranger was giving them to her. But it did not take long before she was sharing her good nature with everyone. I especially love the river in places. My profile photo on Sunday, Father's day was taken at a place where grass grows in the middle of the river like on a small island. At one place along the river the sounds of running water would put you to sleep if you sat still long enough.

We have definitely been busy here. Little Cowboy is out of school now and he is ready to ride.

I guess where ever Trigger lived in the past was not a happy place, because Friday when Triggger saw the children, he ran away. But Cowboy & I caught him. He never acted up one bit after we caught him. He just didn't want to get into it to begin with. LOL.
Fancy on the other hand, seems to love all the attention she gets from the children. I wish she would tell Trigger that people can be kind.

Saturday's trip to Stone Mountain St Park was wonderful! The first thing we saw when we arrived was a black snake sun bathing in the road. To my liking, we did not see anymore of his kind. I loved the wooden bridges there. There were boulders long and wide as a queen size bed, maybe bigger. We came upon a pretty little doe standing all alone. I was surprised Fancy only looked at her and kept walking. The springs were clear and pretty until Fancy stirred the water with her pawing and taught the other horses to do the same :)

Sunday evening we rode around the neighborhood. Little Cowboy especially loved when his older brother decided to take a ride with him. My older son rode Fancy. He did not think she would listen to him, but she gave him no trouble.

Hope you enjoyed a great weekend also, stop by to tell us about it!

I have to clean up while Fancy & Trigger eat grain to keep Fancy from raiding Trigger's bucket. At first he would run, but soon he learned that I am shooing Fancy away. Now, when Fancy comes towards his grain, he will look at me pitifully. I wish you could see his funny pitiful face. It is so funny.

I was so tired last night, didn't have enough in me for my online activities. Well rested now and here I am!

Buttercup, Trigger, & Fancy finally got a photo together as we left for our 2nd trial ride. About 3 years has passed since I have seen these wooded trails. It felt so good to be in the places where I learned to ride. So many memories there! Now my Little Cowboy is riding the same trails with me!
Have you found yourself riding in the same trails as your parents or the ones that helped you learn to ride? Or do your children now ride the trails that you learned to ride on?
At one area we were beside the train tracks & here comes 'THE TRAIN'. Fancy wanted to run away, but she listened to me instead. I did keep her slightly facing it so she could see it. And she relaxed slowly. She still does not like trains, but this was very good for her to see that it was not going to hurt her.

THANKS for the congrats on Cowboy & Trigger's fun show success♥ He was tickled about the blogs!

We trailered to the farm for a trailride with Buttercup! I hate not being able to get any pics this time. Fancy surprised me! Fancy was not very familiar with the drop down into the creek, but she went slowly and with out any problem. Then we worked Buttercup at the same creek crossing because Buttercup was determined not to cross, but she didn't know about me. LOL. We got her to cross it several times before leaving! And Little Trigger was the champ of the day! He rode Little Cowboy and his smaller cousin all day. And he trudged along like a champ without giving them any problem what so ever. I am sure are getting to like that little horse ")

Enjoy a Splendid Sunday a vote, and have a marvelous Memorial Day weekend ♥
Any one enjoying any horse shows this weekend or any riding?

“And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free. And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me” (Lee Greenwood)

Little Cowboy went to see the Avengers Thursday night with his older brother.
Buttercup has been acting like a bucking rodeo horse. Then my brother got a cramp in his leg. LOL

Friday I used the clippers on Fancy for the second time. I allowed plenty of time for desensitizing. She was very good and seemed to enjoy the vibration of the clippers on her chin. It was funny, the way she kept moving her chin towards the clippers when I would move them away.

Saturday Fancy and I attended our 2nd horse show. This was a very first show for Cowboy and Trigger. There was a lot more horses competing in each class this time!
I was not able to keep up with how many horses were in each class this time. Fancy got 5th place in Open Halter all mares and 3rd place in Adult Western Non-Trotting. Fancy didn't place in Adult Halter English or Western this time.

Trigger was on his best ever behavior! Cowboy and Trigger placed in each event they entered! They got 4th place in Youth Western Walk/Jog, 2nd place in Youth Catalog Race, and 4th place in Youth Flag Race. Cowboy and Trigger received lots of comments on how they seemed perfect for one other. My little duo made a ton of friends of all ages. The farm dog took a liking to them too. People were saying that dog would have to go home with Cowboy and Trigger. OH NO, Can't afford to feed any thing else! LOL :~)

Saturday and Sunday evenings were spent at the horse clinic. Fancy and I are learning how to be good show participants along with other members. During the halter and showmanship sessions Fancy was very good. Fancy was complemented on her ability to halt squarely. Under saddle, Fancy found a hyper buddy. Each time they met in the same spot of the arena, they would both kick up and get excited. They acted like they both saw something there. Nobody knows except the two of them. LOL. Sunday was much better. Fancy was complimented on being the first brave horse to cross the tarp. All horses behaved well!!!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Cowboy Definitions:
Airish - A little cool.

Soon as I begin blogging and voting last night, it starts storming here. I figured I better get it done early before the expected storms return.

Nothing going on right now, just waiting for a few lingering storms to pass. I do look forward to beautiful flowers after the rainy days, and I know Fancy looks forward to munching the growing grass.

Have a beautiful day ♥

Leaving a Friday vote and a smile ;~)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Cowboy Definitions:
Adam's Ale - Water.

Cowboy took Trigg to the vet after school today. I thought he might be a pony or something. LOL! But the vet says he is a full Arabian, just kind of small and he says that can be normal.

After our vet visit, Cowboy and I visited the farm. Buttercup has given her little heart to my brother after all. Buttercup was out, eating grass when my brother walked by, she actually wanted to follow him with ears forward and a very happy horsey expression! So different from weeks ago!!! I am happy for him.

I forgot to tell you, I got Fancy some sweet rolls for her birthday and she did not like them. I had to get Fancy some watermelon. But Trigger loved the sweet rolls, so I gave him the sweet rolls. Fancy would get in between Trigg and the sweet rolls and try to keep him from eating them. When she walked or turned away from them Trigg would try to sneak around her to get them. It would take him a while, but finally he would get to eat them. Those two were so funny.

Fancy and I are learning some things for our new halter and showmanship interest. It is going to take some time before we are ready for showmanship. But we can have fun learning in the meantime.

I may be offline Saturday. I will try and log in to vote contest if I can't do anything else.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Fancy & Trigg are leaving a Wet Wednesday vote in your water bucket. (Fancy likes to play in the drinking water, LOL)

Trigger's water is always clean, but Fancy's water is always nasty because she paws in it. I can't believe she doesn't paw in Trigger's water too. Does your horse paw in the drinking water?

It rained last night. I think we might get rain today too.
Have a very nice day!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Love works miracles:
I am leaving this Tuesday vote from my Fancy.

Love goes a long way! Please read these messages of appreciation to us from Joanna and Pixie Dust family ♥

May 4, 2012 from Joanna's sister
Thank you so much for everything you have done, and for the incredibly touching emails and postings. My parents and I are just so deeply touched, and I just really can't even put our appreciation in words. Not only were you an amazing friend to Joanna, you've been an amazing supporter of my parents and me. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
(And sorry for not always responding sooner to your messages; between work and kids and horses, I don't get on facebook as often as I would like).

May 7, 2012 from Joanna's sister
Hi again Frances - Just wanted to share a message from my mom when she forwarded some of your very sweet messages to our family,
An update on this message is that Pixie Dust WON Horse of the Month honors because Frances and her friends (unknown to us) rallied over 8000 votes on the Horse Channel for a picture of Pixie. We are so touched that Joanna's friends would go to so much effort to honor her (and Pixie). And Frances' words are beautiful. Brian and I do not do Facebook, but perhaps some of you knew about this and helped with it. Thank you. We are humbled that Joanna is being remembered in this way.

“What is the probability that something will happen according to the odds?” (unknown)

I am leaving this Monday vote from my Fancy.

A fresh new week! AHHHHH, how nice:)
Saturday morning when I opened the door to go out, I noticed the strong smell of the blossoming flowers. I walked to my hanging basket and took a big whiff of those blooms! And you know, as I did this I thought of Joanna & all the other people on this very earth that do not have freedom of movement. And I thought of what it would mean for them to walk over and smell those flowers if they had the chance.
With this in mind, I pray that you will dance in the very glory of this day. Do something exciting today! I know some think it is Monday, time to settle down. Well why??? Monday means a whole new week, a new beginning! A chance to love again, a chance to live another day! Put a smile on your face, take this day and make it what you want it to be.
Look at Fancy's perception today and make something good & exciting happen this day!!! Believe in the ODDS!!!

Enjoy this beautiful day!!!

Here is a Happy Birthday vote for my Fancy. And wasn't it a great day for the Kentucky Derby!!!!!!!!


Early this morning Cowboy and I attended a horse show class. Learned a lot and had a wonderful time!

After lunch Buttercup & my brother came over & went for a stroll with Cowboy and Trigg. I walked beside Cowboy & Trigg during their ride. We all had to wait under the carwash till the rain stopped. Buttercup is doing much better! She doesn't seem to give her heart away to just anyone. She is a sweet girl once she accepts you. She is finally BEGINNING to accept my brother. She is beginning to keep those ears up and happy.
I seem to be quite the little instigator here. I had to insist they try all kind of things. It was FUN!!! I had them going between swings, under picnic shelters, going up steps, going up and down small hills and concrete walls. My brother seemed to be amused. Little Cowboy was just having fun. LOL. There was a lot of laughing!!!

Fancy had and easy day today. All she had to do was look pretty and be sweet, she done an excellent job at that. LOL!

Don't' forget to visit profile page #232390 the Calendar of Agendas page each day to see who is running for HOTD and HOTM so you can get your votes in :~)

Enjoy this beautiful weekend!!!!

"A horse is the projection of people's dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence." (Pam Brown)



I received a few blogs about the profile page I gave for Ergo yesterday being incorrect. (thanks for the heads up on that and I am sorry if some of you had trouble finding them) Ergo is now sharing profile page #230610 with Duke, as some of their profile pages have been deleted.

I only knew Ergo's owner for a short time. I can tell she sure was an awesome person from the few blogs we shared.

Before I fall into the bed, gotta tell of the past few days!!!
(remember the last time Cowboy rode Trigger out of the corral, which was the first time Cowboy rode Trigger out of the corral with out me leading, Trigger gave Cowboy a very unpleasant time.)
Well: Sunday evening, Cowboy rode Trigger in the backyard without my assistance and Trigger listened to him calmly and obediently.
Monday evening, I saddled Fancy and Trigger. Cowboy and Trigger followed Fancy and I around the yard and we decided to take them out. We went around 2 blocks and Trigger was quite the little pro. He didn't even balk when we walked through the car wash.
Tuesday, I hand walked Trigger to Cowboy's school, which took less than 30 minutes going very slowly as he was eating grass along the way. When the children came out Trigger neighed veerryyyy loudly! Everyone was thrilled to see Cowboy ride his horse home from school! But no one was happy as Cowboy riding his horse home from school!!! Trigger was a complete gentleman, except when he pooped on the school lawn. LOL.

Have a blessed night
Love Fancy & Frances

Enjoy an end of the weekend vote :~)

Only one more day to vote for Angel Pixie Dust. There are so many new members on HC now, many HC members missed meeting Joanna and experiencing her wonderful attitude first hand. A few of us were fortunate enough to know her and that was a blessing.

It looks like many votes were left, but I have not seen many blogs on Pixie Dust's page from our HC members. I hope each of you were able to visit Pixie Dust's page. Through the many blogs you have received this month, I hope you understand the magnitude of Joanna's presence, her positive attitude in spite of the odds. I hope you realize the reason for this campaign. Her strength, attitude, caring, compassion for others, always putting others first. I thank God for allowing me to know Joanna for a short while. You just don't met a person like Joanna Wicke everyday.

Little Cowboy and Trigger enjoyed the evening together. Trigger seemed happy with his little rider today. They began in the corral and ended on a nice note out in the back yard. Trigger did everything Little Cowboy asked of him this day. Trigger even listened out in the yard this time and that did make Little Cowboy happy to ride without my assistance. Trigger and Fancy also enjoyed some nice juicy grass before good night time.

Have a blessed and peaceful night ♥
