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.)

Here's a vote from Fancy & Trigger :^)

When I logged in tonight I saw some comments that touched my heart. I am thankful for my HorseChannel friends. You never know how much you mean. You guys are the best!!!

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 ✞

I experienced something new during our Saturday ride . It was a simple thing, but it was beautiful. As we rode through the forest, at a nice relaxed walk, we were in a grove of trees as the wind picked up slightly. It was as if the wind gently wrapped around us. With the gentle wind came a feeling that I cannot describe. It was like we were in a snow globe. It was beautiful. The trees surrounded us, except the clearing of the trail. The prettiest part was the leaves! The leaves began to fall around us like a summer shower! It was so beautiful to see and feel all the colored leaves fall like rain. They fell slowly, but it was so many and it lasted for a few minutes as we walked through. I looked up and all I could see was the leaves swirling down, it was beautiful!

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!

“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?

Fancy and Trigger are galloping by with a evening vote for you friend.

I spent Thursday and Friday with Fancy. She was ready in case I decided to take her to the show. Friday after school Little Cowboy and Trigger practiced for some events . We had fun because Fancy and I had to show them what to do. I think it will be fun when I do get to compete with Fancy. We might not win, because she is not very fast. But she is certainly fun :)
The show was rescheduled from Saturday to Sunday morning. Since this was the last fun show this year, we did attend. Little Cowboy entered quite a few events he had never tried before. Every one had fun watching him try new things. The crowd was in an uproar in laughter. I didn't get the funny stuff on video cause all the funny things happened after I stopped videoing. The bareback class was the funniest. He slid all the way onto Trigger's side and pulled himself back up with a hand full of mane. There were some cute little girls in the bareback too. The smallest one fell off and her sister came to her aide. It was so cute seeing this very small girl help her smaller sister back onto her horse after making sure she was ok of course.
We all had a grand time at this event. Little Cowboy entered 10 events this show and he placed 1st, 3rd, or 4th in all events except one. The only event he did not place in was the egg and spoon race. I guess that is my fault for lettin him practice with an ice cream scoop and a plastic egg. LOL Next time we practice with a plastic spoon and a real egg. LOL! There is quite a difference there.
I guess that is enough about that.

How was your weekend? Hope it was beautiful :)

Here is a late vote. I have been outside playing with our puppies, working with Fancy, and putting longer twine on sponsor banners for our show this Saturday. I am entering Fancy in the horse show at our local fair coming the end of September. So I may not enter her in the show this Saturday. I am thinking of letting Little Cowboy have all the fun at this show. We will work with him and Trigger Friday after school.

Are there additional shows in your area this year? If there are any other shows in your area, do you plan to attend as a spectator or competitor? We only have the one this Saturday and the one at our fair coming up close to the end of this month.

I almost forgot, I will try to vote all contest Friday morning then I may be offline Friday and Saturday. If I am able to get online Friday or Saturday, I will.

HAVE A PEACEFUL NIGHT :)

"If we were all like angels, the world would be a heavenly place." (Author Unknown)


I dedicate this special occasion of our first show together to Joanna and Pixie Dust.

Fancy spent Friday night in a blanket with hopes she would be more clean than dirty come morning. The back clip had come undone, but that blanket did serve the purpose. Fancy only had one area on the side of her neck that was dirty. Once at the farm, I cleaned her dirty spot and her feet before introducing Fancy to the sandy arena. At first she was a little excited to be in a new place, but soon settled down. We only entered two classes this time. Fancy was fine, except she did not like horses standing behind her. When horses were lined up behind us, Fancy kept trying to spin around to see exactly what they had in mind back there.
We entered class 2 Adult Halter with 6 entries and Fancy placed 3rd!!!! This was the first time I ever won a ribbon with any horse!!! I was so excited. We didn't do so well in Class 3 as we placed 5th out of 5. However, We did leave with 2 ribbons from our first show!!!

PLEASE READ, CORRECTION TO PREVIOUS BLOG: I made an error in dates listed in my blog. I also somehow accidentally lost Joanna's first name in some of my blogs.

The CORRECT INFORMATION is Joanna Helen Wicke January 1, 1977-September 23, 2011.

I guess I am not very reliable at 3:30 in the morning. I appreciate Marion and Indy calling this to my attention and I apologize for the error.

There are a few active HorseChannel members that remember Joanna. If you remember Joanna, PLEASE share a blog on Fancy's page. I would love to read what you have shared with Joanna during her short stay here.

Hi! I hope you are doing well today looking forward to a horsey weekend and celebrating this Easter weekend. We are in a 3 day stretch of cold rain & I am freezing :) We are not expecting warmer temps, but we do expect the rain to clear up this afternoon. Then we can have some fun.

Your responses to my blogs have encouraged me during the blogs that I have written. Sometimes it is hard when you miss someone that has touched you in a special way. I thank you so much.

I really hope you have enjoyed reading and learned some things about our Angel Joanna. Thanks for reading these blogs and taking into consideration how Joanna touched many lives during her short stay on earth. We never knew just how giving she was until it was too late.

Be kind, be sweet, be loving to one another, because we don't know what a person is struggling with from day to day and we all have struggles.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
"We're all kissed by angels but some of us never think to pucker." (Terri Guillemets)

Joanna loved animals, but she had other loves in her life as well. Joanna was loved by not only her personal family and HorseChannel friends. I learned that Jane Seymour, star of Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, was a very personal close friend that paid several visits to Joanna. You see, people of all walks of life could benefit from knowing such a loving & kind spirit.

Joanna often mentioned Dancing With The Stars in her blogs. When Jane was on Dancing With The Stars I don't think Joanna would have missed a single show. Joanna has managed a fan website for Jane's Dancing With The Stars partner, Tony Dovolani and Karina Smirnoff. Joanna spent her last evening watching Dancing with the stars. ONLY NOW, I know how important the very thought of dancing must have been to Joanna. I bet the first thing she did when she arrived in Heaven was to dance. Something that so many of us take for granted. I hope that sometime today you will stand on your feet when you hear your favorite song or hum a tune to yourself and dance a few steps in honor of our Angel Joanna.

I hope through these blogs you can understand how unique Joanna was and the way she inspired me to try my best to be a better person. We all experience turbulence in our lives. But this young lady was able to look past the turbulence in her life with an amazing desire to share life and love with others. In spite of her many health issues, Joanna was a blessing to those that knew her.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
It is not because angels are holier than men or devils that makes them angels, but because they do not expect holiness from one another, but from God alone. ~William Blake

Sometime in 1991, Joanna came across 2 Shetland ponies for sale in a want ad. Both ponies were purchased by her family and given to Bloomfield Hills School Farm. Joanna named the ponies Tinkerbell & Pixie Dust. Joanna helped her mom create and teach 'LOVE-A-PONY', an afterschool and summer class for children. For seven years Joanna was with her ponies almost every day. It has been over 19 years since creating LOVE-A-PONY, and I have read that this pony class is still being taught this very day.
Joanna's was confined to her bed the last 9 years of her life, during which Pixie Dust was allowed to visit Joanna at her bedside. Joanna also made friends all across the world with the use of her computer, thanks to her dad for building a stand that allowed her to safely use the computer while lying down.
Pixie Dust at 21 years old, has joined Joanna in Heaven. I have read that this date was sometime around or on the 27 of February, 2012. I can only imagine the joy felt during that reunion.
Joanna was extraordinary. Always thinking of how she could help others, even through the use of her ponies. She loved unconditional and she reached out to others, even when she needed to be reached out to.
Joanna, a true inspiration ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone. ~George Elliot

A group of HorseChannel.com members have formed a group, known as the Angel Crew. The Angel Crew would like to win Angel Pixie Dust the honor of being HorseChannel's May Horse of the Month in honor of Joanna. If you would like to help, please visit Pixie Dust's HorseChannel page #101958 and leave a vote each day during the month of April 2012.
Pixie Dust, belonged to our Facebook pal and HorseChannel member, Joanna Wicke. Joanna was loved by all who knew her. She was always positive and uplifting to others. Joanna welcomed Fancy and I to HorseChannel with unbelievable love and daily support. After a disturbing disappearance of Joanna, Sadie's owner, Joyce informed us that Joanna had passed away in her sleep at the tender age of 34 on September 23, 2011. It was only then that her many health conditions were revealed. Even though being confined to her bed for the past 9 years, Joanna never once revealed a single pain to us. What a remarkable YOUNG person to have as a friend.

It was in 1991 that Joanna & her mom purchased Pixie Dust to share with the Bloomfield Hills School Farm. For 7 years Joanna helped her mom create & teach Love-A-Pony, an afterschool & summer class for children.

Joanna, A true inspiration ♥

How are you doing? Wow, it's been a really long time since I've been able to blog properly! It's just been such a busy schedule lately that I hardly have any computer time to myself.

But, I have had time to take Pippin out almost every day and, of course, Melian comes with me too. Last week I was driving him to the mountain. Melian was attached to the side. We started down the lane and a car stopped behind us. We waited to cross the highway and once on the other side noticed the car following us.

Then we turned up the road to go up the mountain and the car drew up from behind us and stopped a little ahead. A woman jumped out with a camera and started exclaiming about how cute Pippin is. Pippin's expression was all attentive as he LOVES being the centre of attention. He was like, "I know it!"

Anyway, she and her husband asked if they could snap some shots because they had never seen anything so adorable. Of course, I said yes. And then she said hello to Pippin and was as friendly as ever.

In the meantime, beautiful Melian is standing there with a long suffering patience written all over her face. They hardly noticed her and she was thinking, "Let's get this over already! How boring can people be?" However, if she had been the centre of attention she would have been loving every minute of it. When people say she's so beautiful she raises her head a little and prances a few steps. Wow, what vain critters I have!

So, we went on our way. We met a couple of loggers, one of whom thought Pippin was adorable. Melian again ignored. Pippin must have looked particularly cute that day!

So, we turned around at the base of the mountain to gallop back down. Pippin was eager to set off and we raced faster and faster. We passed the logger and he looked in surprise as this teeny tiny horse came galloping by at 25mph.

Eventually I started to slow Pippin as we drew nearer the highway. Melian was running loose at this point and I wanted to hook her back up to the cart. We pulled over, I attached her, and then I clicked for Pippin to move.

Nothing happened. I clicked again. Nope. Hm, what's wrong? I got out and looked at Pippin wonderingly. What?! No bridle? I have never in my life had this happen to me on any horse.

The bridle was around his off fore. It must have come off while I was hooking up Melian. He probable scratched his face on the shafts and it got hooked there somehow. That's the only explanation of which I can think. I'm certainly glad it didn't come off while we were galloping down!

Anyway, never a dull moment with creatures in your lives! Here's a vote for you and I hope you're enjoying spring. Here it's warm and then freezing and then raining and then snowing. Typical spring. Can't make up its mind.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Celebrate BlackHistory Month:
“To live anywhere in the world today and be against equality because of race or color is like living in Alaska and being against snow.” (William Faulkner)

Fancy Queen of Heart Month is blowing a heart vote in your direction this beautiful Monday morning.

We thank Joey, Ginger, and Angel Betsy for suggesting us doing the Black History blogs this past few weeks. I enjoyed this project, it was fun to share some of my most favorite horsey characters with you guys. I appreciate the comments and responses we received.

'C' & I trailered Trigger home Saturday morning. 'C' led Trigger to the trailer, however once Trigg saw that he was leaving he pitched a fit for King Kong. King Kong was so busy eating grass, he had no cares for Trigger's plight. Once loaded Trigger was just fine. He didn't like the idea of a bath, but it was fun cleaning him up. After his baths we take him walking and let him graze while he dries.
Sunday evening, Trigger and Fancy were turned out together for the first time. To my surprise, Fancy is not even mean to Trigger, not at all. She lets him walk anywhere he wants to, lets him eat her hay and she even eats with him. However, she does stay in between Trigger and I. I was patting Fancy on the side of her neck and Trigger wanted a pat to. He walked towards me and Fancy ran him off. He looked so pitiful. I think after a while she will allow him to come to me too, because Trigger is the very first animal in our yard that Fancy is not very mean to. I wonder if she is nice to him because she remembers him from last summer when we visited the farm, he visited us, and we went riding together.
I was very tired Sunday night. I did get my profile photos changed, then I was off to bed.

Hope you enjoyed a beautiful weekend. Did you do anything fun?
Now, YOU enjoy this Marvelous Monday!

VOTED :^)
Willie Simms, born 1/16/1870, near Augusta, Georgia, U.S.—died 2/26/1927, Asbury, New Jersey), 1 of only 2 African American jockeys (the other is Isaac Burns Murphy) 2 have been elected 2 the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, New York.
Simms began racing in 1887 & became the most successful rider 2 adopt the short stirrup since the antebellum slave & rider Abe Hawkins. The short stirrup lifts the rider over the horse’s withers, allowing the animal better balance. In 1895 Simms became the 1st American jockey 2 win in England, where sportswriters referred 2 him as a “monkey on a stick.” The short stirrup earned more esteem after the white American jockey Tod Sloan used it 2 win English races in 1897, & it came to be known as the “American seat.”
Simms won the Belmont Stakes in 1893 & 1894, the Kentucky Derby in 1896 & 1898, & the Preakness Stakes in 1898; he is the only African American 2 have won all of the Triple Crown classics. Simms was the leading American jockey (on the basis of number of wins) in 1893 & 1894. He retired in 1901 with 1 of the best lifetime winning percentages in the sport, 24.8.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Happy Valentines:
“Many are the stars I see, but in my eye no star like thee” (English saying)

Here is your Sunday heart vote from my SweetHeart Fancy and Trigg.
My son 'C', wants me to let everyone know he appreciates your votes and he loves reading the comments. He says "Thank You ♥"

Fancy,"She says she loves me."
Frances,"My horse keeps me honest."

What a cold & windy day in NC! I did spend a bit of time today cleaning Fancy's corral. I was on my way into the shed and Fancy nickered to me. I know the look, she wants time out. I actually promised her I would give her time out when I finished putting my yard tools away. The wind was blowing so hard when I came out of the shed that I forgot my promise to Fancy & was about to lock the shed door when Fancy nickered to me. She was standing at the gate patiently waiting for her time out. I told her Ok, you keep me honest! And back into the shed I went to fetch her halter and lead. On the way I was thinking to myself, I talk to this horse too much, she knows what I am telling her. I gotta stop talking soo much. LOL! I do love my sweet horse ♥

'C' had to visit his Trigger today. When we got there Trigg was across the creek. We called to him and he actually ran over. I think he thought it was supper time. 'C' gave Trigg a nice juicy apple. Trigg got himself a new nickname today. 'C' calls him Tigger now.

The rains held back and the winds were harsh, it was too cold to ride, but we had lovely weather this weekend.

How did your weekend go?
Love Fancy Queen of Hearts ♥ & Frances

“My horses' feet are as swift as rolling thunder. He carries me away from all my fears. And when the world threatens to fall asunder, His mane is there to wipe away my tears.” (unknown)

All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.” (Helen Keller)

Thank You Joyce and Sadie for letting us know about the loss of Angel Navajo #119353. Please visit Navajo's page, he was Ruth Ann's first horse, he was a sweet & gentle companion to her.

My little C. read his blogs last night and he went to bed with the biggest smile on his little face as he thought of his Trigger. He saw his page this morning before school, and he asked me to tell everyone Happy Valentines and Thanks for HOTD. He is very excited to spend some time with Trigger. He wanted to visit the farm Thursday after school but it was not a good time. I plan to take him to the farm today after school.

Love Fancy and Frances

“Follow the path that leads to your heart” (anonymous)

Good morning vote!
I don't know what Fancy was up to yesterday morning, when I went out to feed her, she was acting like she was starving! I wondered what created that appetite. She was prancing between the gate and her food bucket , snaking her neck for me to come on with it, and doing a little pawing. What gives! Well anyway, she was happy for dinner time.

February 1st was the official day my son became the owner of Trigger. Trigger was my youngest brother's horse. My brother gave Trigger to my son because my brother is out of town working all the time. I created a page for Trigger and my son. I am still working on adding the pictures. If you have time please visit their page. I love the smiles on his face when he reads your comments:) Since I don't know how much longer Scotty will be staying with us, I deleted Scotty's page and added Scotty to the page with King Kong.

Thanks for all the sweet blogs♥
Love Fancy and Frances

♥SWEETHEART VOTES FROM FANCY WALK N THAT WAY♥

“MY HORSE, MY HEART, MY FAITHFUL FRIEND”
Looking over Fancy's most recent blogs, I see "Congrats'. Ok, Fancy had HOTD in October. It dawned on me, today is February 1st. I checked and Fancy is Feburary HOTM. Fancy does have a kind and loving heart, so I think she will do a great job as Queen of February.
I am so thankful for HC friends. You are much more than friends. You are our horsey family. Thanks for understanding when I humanize Fancy. You don't criticize. You allow me to share my love for her. And in return, You share the love you have for your horse with me.
If we continue to enjoy spring like days this February, Fancy & I can have some fun celebration days!
Love Fancy & Frances
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH

Fancy is patiently tied at her hitching rail sending Sunday heart votes to HorseChannel friends.

Today was the driest day since all the rains. I finally got a photo of my dirty Fancy girl standing tied at her new hitching rail. GROOMING TIME, oh yes! Fancy likes her hitching rail better than being tied to the tree in her corral. I like it too :)

How was your weekend?
Have a blessed & peaceful night,
