FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, BORN TO SPOOK!!!

JACK-o-LANTERN
Jack-o-lantern, Jack-o-lantern,
You are such a funny sight.
As you sit there by the window,
Looking out into the night.
You were once a sturdy pumpkin,
growing on a curly vine.
Now you are a Jack-o-lantern,
See your night lights shine.

Fancy is leaving a superb Saturday vote.
Thanks for voting Scotty HOTD, his owner is visiting today and he will get treats & lots of attention today. Scotty has done many things. 3 years ago he was a kids horse. Since then he has participated in some parades and Buffalo Soldiers presentations. Every one seems to like him very much.
Fancy seems to like Scotty too much. The first evening with Scotty, I was not very happy! Fancy did not want to come to me and I thought Fancy was going to starve for not eating. Each day she gets closer to her normal self again. The only thing now, Fancy seems to be a little skiddish, which is not normal for my girl. I have taken her out on walks each day that Scotty has been here. I rode Fancy around the block yesterday and she was very good, but a little hyper to go. I stopped and took her bridle off to let her graze for a while too.
I have been dealing with horses for almost 20 years with plenty of horses and never had my toe stepped on. Well, guess what? Dog gone if Scotty didn't step on the tip of my boot Friday evening. I believe he was very aware of it too! Gonna work on his ground manners:~)
Any riding going on this weekend for you? If I get the opportunity, I better take it!

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?

Fancy is leaving a very thankful vote for you today. We do not take our friends for granted. Each of you mean so much to us. I believe Fancy understands when I talk to her about you guys. LOL.
Thanks for such sweet comments Saturday. Fancy was a very sweet girl on her day. That made me very happy. I told her we would honor our friend Joanna on her HOTD (& other days too, because we will never forget such a sweet friend) So we only hung out and Fancy was loved on as usual.

Sorry, I didn't change our photo today. I still might change it. I just love that background with Fancy. I think the colors whisper AUTUMN all day long.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“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.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"If all the world were ours to give, would we give it?"

Fancy and Frances are leaving a vote for your beautiful horse today.
Everything that I did with Fancy Wednesday, I dedicated to Joanna's memory.
When Fancy walked to meet me at the gate, I thought about Pixie and Brisco not being able to see their loved friend meet them at the gate again. As I picked out Fancy's hooves all I could think about was Pixie Dust and Brisco. Wondering if they understand the absence of the constant source of love in their life.
As I worked cleaning Fancy's corral, I thought of my granddad telling me once, "The empty wagon cries the loudest." I asked him, "Granddad, what in the world does that mean?" And he explained to me, if I listen, I will hear that a wagon bearing a full load makes very little to no sound. And the wagon that is empty creeks and squeaks loudly. He explained to me how people are like the wagons. Yesterday I thought of Joanna and I felt like the empty wagon. She never once complained, she was always positive, she loved reading of Fancy's adventures.
After reading her memorial posted on Cross Creek Horses page, I suddenly understood why she loved Dancing With the Stars so much.
This young lady had such an awesome spirit! And we never knew how awesome she really was. But Pixie Dust knew this as she visited Joanna during her illness. What a loving and special little horse. God Bless Pixie Dust, she is truly an Angel on Earth.

PEACE STARTS WITH A SMILE;~)
Have a truly blessed day.

Has anyone seen the new show, America's Best Trail Horse? I have seen the first two shows. I love it! If you have seen it, what do you think? It kind of reminds me of Craig Cameron's Extreme Cowboy Race.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out" (Walter Winchell)

Fancy's sliding by in the mud to leave you this Tuesday vote. We hope your holiday weekend was most delightful. Did you enjoy any horsey time? We did nothing here this weekend. Now it is raining off and on☁

Lots of friends asked how I began to teach Fancy to lay down. Here is my comment on that.
1. First you teach the horse to let you handle his front feet. You teach them to let you hold that foot up for long as you want to with out taking it back.
2. Rope breaking helps. I mean throwing the rope all around their body, head, and legs till they are in no way fearful or uncomfy with that feel and touch.
3. You need 2 SOFT ropes. Don't tie, but loop one around the horse's front near pastern (ankle area), you will use this to hold the hoof up only, Make sure this rope never gets tight because it may slow or stop blood flow.
4. Second SOFT rope attaches to the halter as usual, except you run it between the front legs to the off side of your horse and across the back to lay on the same side of his body as the leg you are going to lift.
5. Lift the foot using the rope that is around that foot. Hold still until he is o.k. with that. Hold the foot up at the point that it touches the belly. No tighter than necessary and don't tighten as you go.
6. Teach the bow. Grab the rope that is attached to the halter it should lay just behind the withers and pull slowly and softly until he gives with his nose. His head will tip slightly then he is ready for a bow. He should go back and downward until his knee touches the ground. You have to know your horse. Let him up before he gets upset. Just in case he lays all the way down at this point, keep in mind, which ever way his nose tips is the direction his feet will lay. Stay clear of his feet so you don't get kicked.
7. If he lay down from the bow, you want to rub all over him before he gets up and tell him how great he is!
8. If he didn't lay down from the bow on his own, redo the bow and hold in the bow position and he should lay down. You may need to slightly increase the pressure with the rope that is across his withers. But remember to be very gentle. He should lay down. Depending on the horse, it may take a few times to get all the way down.


Look up Ken McNabb on the internet, his method is very gentle.
I also learned that you do not want to ride a horse up from the ground until it is over 5 years old because it's bones are still growing and you can damage it's developing bone structure, which could lead to future problems.
If I confused you, let me know or look it up on the internet. I hope this has helped.

Also if you know something that will help me with this, please leave me a blog about it!

i had a stressful day. saw a dead horse on the shoulder of the road when i drove into houston. then, got a weird phone call from a funeral home in MN looking for next of kin for someone. all they knew was that this woman had family at a big horse ranch in the houston area. it made me sad. i didn't recognize the name and couldn't help.
on the plus, i rode smooch and fitted godiva in the harness again, this time with instructions from pippin. everything works and we're good to go! can't wait to have some cooler weather to enjoy a drive.

Heyyy Everyone!!!!
I'm Back :) and i am sorry for the long absence. I will say i never forgot about my horse channel friends though because i was still getting notifications on my cell phone about people voting for my boys!!!Thank you so much for that! I am going to try and be on here more now! I really love hearing from all of you guys and how all of you are doing. And thank you so much for having Buddy HOTD I believe it Was September 9th! That was too Bad I had to miss that but I wouldn't have been able to get on the computer that day anyway as I was showing at my last horse show of the year :( so now the boys are in the pasture eating but i am going to try and ride them at least once a week all through the winter so I can maybe hit some shows in february march time but i'm not sure if that will happen. So here are some updates on my shows. At Iowa State Fair in my English Pleasure class there were 48 people or around that so they split the class. I was in the first cut. Only six or so horses were going to be called back. Rocky was an angle for me and ended up getting called back. So i went back into the final go of english pleasure and ended up getting 6th or 7th. i couldn't have asked for him to be better. It feels so good when you are the person who has done all the work on your horse and I know I did all of his training when it came to English Pleasure. Then in my English Eq I had one of the best patterns my mom said but i didn't place the best then i had a good pattern in Western Horsemanship and again didn't place the best but we will get em next year. Then buddy boy got to have his turn in trail. Dang they made that pattern hard and tight. Buddy ended up getting 8th out of 20 something people. He was an angel for me. Good baby and you will never guess what buddy has his left lead to his right lead flying lead change down. I am so proud of him. Then he has been doing some great jumping. CAN EVERYONE PLEASE VOTE FOR BUDDY (AKA MASTERS DREAMCATCHER) IN THE VIRTUAL HORSE SHOW FOR BEST ENGLISH HORSE!!!!!THE PIC IS AN AWESOME PIC OF HIM JUMPING SORRY ITS NOT THE BEST PIC EVER!!!!!THANKS I will give more updates later! How has everyone been???? Can't wait to hear from everyone

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?

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!
Have a Beautiful Day, Be Blessed♥

Fancy moving on by with your vote tonight♥
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!!!

Good Morning! Just leaving you a vote and a wish for you to have a nice day:)

I read the poll question today. Fancy doesn't do any of those things. I think she is a little original. She plays with things. Sometimes that is good, sometimes that is bad. How about your horse?

A very pretty quarter horse, and HC member for 1 1/2 year, June, is running for HOTD August 5. Please make a new friend: visit, blog, and vote for June #120269 today:)

PLEASE VOTE EVERYDAY FOR SEPTEMBER HOTM;)

TGIF Yeah! One more Friday vote for you, have a fantastic day:)

I didn't ride Fancy for 2 days, then I rode her Thursday morning for a few minutes and let her eat grass. She was better than the last time I rode her. As usual, the closer to the road we get, she gets excited and wants to rush. And when we ride up the street, every now and then she rushes. Indy's mom reminded me to do circles. I do this in the yard. I don't know why I didn't think to do that when we are out. DUH:) But any way, I did this when she began to rush and I would go back down the street closer to home, like take 2 steps forward and 3 steps back. This seemed to encourage her to rush a lot less. It looks like I can work through this after all. Most horses are barn sour (wants to stay at the barn), my horse is street sour,LOL.(wants to go, go, go.) Any body elses horse have this condition:)????

I am getting better at sitting her gaits. I desire to post and there is nothing to post with. I feel like I'm just sitting not doing anything. Maybe that is because we are just walking too. Oh well. But riding Fancy is a lot of fun, I can't deny that:)
