How We Met

I was looking for a good horse when a freind of mine told me about monty. She told me that he had only one eye. At first, that kind of discouraged me a little, but when I saw him I knew I wanted him. And after riding him, I couldn't even tell he was missing an eye. He could do everything any other horse with two eyes could do. He came to live with me and he has been my greatest teacher and the best companion I've ever had. Though I don't like to have favorites, because each horse is different and unique in his or her own way, Monty is definitely a very special boy. He's actually really cute and endearing with only one eye.:) I love him very much. So much, that he's going to live out his retirement years with me. Love ya, Monty..

“Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile” (William Cullen Bryant)

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.

Here is your vote from Fancy.
We have enjoyed a few mild days with no rain, however, here it comes again. I just finished working in my flower garden while Fancy watched me and she pawed the dirt, (like she was imitating my digging and planting, guess she was helping, LOL!) now we can use the rain to help these flowers grow.
You have a blessed and peaceful night.

Big hi to all. I got back yesterday. Was so hard to leave. Austin and I had an amazing time. We ate out a lot, went to a couple of movies, Eric took Austin go Karting, Austin and the grandkids played in the backyard pool, cooked out a couple of times, Eric took us on a tour of the Base and to check out a plane on the flightline, spent lots of time with the grandkids, went to the Harley Davidson store in Macon, to church, shopping, etc. Got to do more in 10 days than we do in months. My mom came down and spent a couple of nights with us. So wonderful. Hadn't seen her in 4 yrs. Austin and Eric had a couple of jam sessions. ...When I got home, my dogs were thrilled. My cats were, too. Sadie and Star acted like we hadn't left. ...Thanks for all the votes for Sadie. You're awesome! Hugs and a vote.

Here is a Thursday vote from Fancy.

I made a video to celebrate Fancy's 3rd birthday, (her birthday is not this month, it was in May. I am just late completing the video). It posted on HC yesterday. Please check out Fancy's birthday celebration video. The title is 'May 2008-May 2011 Growing Up Fancy the first 3 years'

"Always drink upstream from the herd" (anonymous)

Fancy and Frances are leaving a vote in honor of the love we have for our horses♥

Fancy is at the gate every time I go out again! I was so tired Sunday evening, I put her up early. When I was fixing her hay for the next morning she did not eat her grain. She watched me. When I finished the hay and walked toward the gate, Fancy beat me to the gate. She stood between me and the gate. I knew she wanted out. She tried to stick her head out while I was leaving and she did that low deep nicker. It was so cute, cause I knew what she wanted, and deep down inside I wanted to spend the time with her. I had to tell her I would be with her Monday morning. I needed to rest.

I can't wait for our next trip to the creek! That was fun! Do you have a creek near your place where you & your horses play? I guess Fancy remembered playing in the creek when she was a weanling, because she went right in. I thought she was going to dig a hole and all the water would seep out. Have you ever had trouble getting your horse into the water?

A Sunday evening vote from Fancy has just been delivered♥
I hope you can find a nice home for Monty, he is so sweet and so lovely, he deserves to be well taken care of. I wish you could keep him♥

I think Fancy will be at or close to 100% at least by Tuesday. She sure did enjoy some watermelon today. That is one of her favorite treats.
Have a blessed & peaceful night.

Fancy and Frances are grazing on by with a 'late night Fancy's feeling pretty good vote!'

Fancy is almost 100% herself again this evening. I have learned some valuable lessons during this new and trying experience. I have had horses for almost 20 years and this is the first time I have ever needed or used bute. Fancy has her craving for attention and action back now. I loved spending time with her, watching her playfulness this evening. I guess I will finally get some sleep tonight. I thank everyone for prayers and information. You guys are the greatest:~)

Thanks for all the well wishes for my trip. I'm excited. Austin and I are flying Delta. I picked an airline where you have to pay extra for everything. Only plan to take 1 suitcase for Austin and I together. Costs too much to wear clothes on vacation. And everything will be okay here while I'm gone, or Rick will know it. Love you all and a vote.

How are things in your backyard?
We are still having storms, just had a big one. Whew, glad it's over!
I did get to rinse Fancy off with just water. She looks clean and I can put the fly on her now. We rode around Thursday and visited neighbors. This is beginning to be fun. Fancy likes to walk and we have to work on her patience. She only likes to be still when I let her eat grass.

Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace. (Martin Luther)

Here is a vote from your dirty little Fancy friend. I want to bathe my sweet young horsey, but it keeps storming, sometimes hard, sometimes lightly. I am trying so hard to wait for her bath. I am wearing out brushing mudd off her. LOL! We hope the weather is being nice in your neighborhood.

I saw the new question for the week, 'if you could ride anywhere in the world where would it be?' This is a very interesting one! I would love to ride at historic places all over the world and the beach. I would love to ride everywhere I have to go, all the time! I think I should have been on earth years ago when we counted on horses for transportation. LOL> What do you think about this week's question?

HI, who will care for Monty when you move, I wish you could take him with you. I know he will miss you.

"If you get thrown from a horse, you have to get up and get back on, unless you landed on a cactus; then you have to roll around and scream in pain." (unknown)

Hail storm is coming this way while I leave Fancy's Monday vote for ya. Hope it doesn't get too rough here. Sad for the families that had the storms over this weekend too.

Sorry I was not online much over this weekend. I did get to vote for all contest each day:~) I haven't been this busy in ages. LOL. We made a ramp for the shed, which was fun. I cleaned out flower beds and moved some plants. We went shopping for my 1o year old, visited the pet shop too. Finally saw Secretariat and it was a great movie.
My two invitations for trail riding were cancelled due to heat. So Fancy and I followed my son on his bike. We visited neighbors. I was amazed that they remembered Fancy when she was 10 months old, but they thought I had another horse now. They didn't realize Fancy has grown so much. Fancy and I chased a small dog that was chasing my son on his bike. That was funny. Fancy saw the dog after my son and she put her head down looking at it and I just let her go. I knew what she was going to do cause it is the same way she acts in her lot when animals go in there. I didn't let her reach it. We turned and went on. I did sneak down into the woods alone with Fancy before going in. First time we ever went there alone and we went to the end of the drive, almost to the creek. Fancy was pretty good. I just had to slow her down a few times.
We went skating. I sat out eating snacks and watching. I didn't feel like falling and hurting. LOL. Spent a few minutes at MOm's and off again for more activities.
Well by the time Sunday night was here, I was so happy to think of rest I just didn't know what to do.
Thank God for weekends and Thank God for Mondays!!!!!

Hey! Sorry for not being on HC for a while, but I have been so busy :(
Today we had a horse show at the stable I train at, it was a games show and all the money was donated to H.E.R.O. A horse rescuer organization. Blossom was fantastic!!! We won two 2nd place ribbons and 1 first place ribbon. She was great even though we were galloping around the arena doing weird stuff. Also, Blissom finally jumped 3 foot clear on Friday!!! That has been a goal for us for a long time, It is amazing to think that the lady we bought her from said she could never jump over 2'4" and the trainer we were with when I first got her said I would never be a good enough rider to jump her ( she didn't say it to me but I heard her telling my mom)
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!!
