FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Take Nothing For Granted:
“Nothing purchased can come close to the renewed sense of gratitude for having family and friends.” (C. Milley)

Fancy & I leave a Monday morning RETURN to HC vote!!!
I hope & pray no one was harmed in the earthquake & each family is safe & in good spirits.

Thanks for voting for Fancy & her herd and ♥ to Shadowfax and Pippin for Fancy's #19,000 vote!!!

I meet Deb & Lady Jane (profile #189648 ), and company! What a wonderful group of friends to make! I was so excited I totally exhausted myself! It was awesome to see the beautiful horses & riders on the beach! They actually had the ACTHA ride along the shoreline!!! How awesome is that? We sat at the campsite enjoying stories and getting acquainted while my son helped Hollie tend to the horses. He enjoyed that most of all. Deb & Lady Jane's group left out for a night stroll along the beach as we were leaving for home. With each breath I longed to ride my Fancy Walk N That Way along the beach. I could not wait to get home to share this with Fancy.

Aimee & Fanny (profile #78967) invited us to enjoy a trail ride with them. This was Fancy's very first trail ride with a group. There were about 30-40 horses on the ride and 2 wagons. My brother & King Kong (profile #218728) accompanied us. We had a wonderful time. Fancy received several compliments on her behavior and some folks thought she was very pretty. They asked me who broke that horse for you? LOL!!!! Me, LOL! God!!! They said Fancy was very patient because she listened to me when I talk to her. I didn't think anything of it because to me that was normal. Fancy is my good girl most of the time and sometimes she is my bad girl. LOL! On one break, Aimee rode Fancy around. I had to tell Fancy to stop following me and listen to Aimee. Aimee enjoyed riding Fancy around in the field. I had planned not to run my little horse, BUT on the return trip, Aimee & Fanny and my brother & King Kong were in the wind. So we did get into a smooth canter. I had forgotten what a canter feels like. Oh! It was wonderful! I was very tired after the ride, but I didn't want it to end.
I hated leaving all the horsey activities but I had another date, one with my son. I promised him I would roller skate with him. I find it quite simple to stay upright upon 4 horse's feet, but if you put me on wheels I am a disaster. I took a skating lesson last week, so now I test my skills. My skills are not good, but for the very first time, I did not fall down once Saturday night. Feels good to stay off the floor. LOL.

Then Sunday was the perfect day to give thanks for all the wonderful friends I have made and all the blessings I share.
You guys are like family, I had so much fun, but I still missed you!!!
I will read all of my blogs within a few days. I look forward to reading about what you have been up to while I was away.
I hope your weekend was beautiful and blessed!!!

My son has ridden Scotty for several days now. The last two days we have walked up and down the street. Scotty walks slowly and my son misses Fancy's little get up and go attitude. But I told him Scotty is better for him right now. Wednesday, he finally got Scotty to speed up a bit. It was nothing more than a slight upgrade in his walk. He can't get Scotty to run yet. It is so funny. But I feel better that Scotty doesn't just take off. One day my son might get him to run a little. LOL. I am not in a hurry for that.
While I walk with them, Fancy is pitching a fit, rearing, kicking, screaming. She really does not like being left behind. When I know my son and Scotty are working together, I can bring Fancy along. But she will have to wait just a little and let things work out.

Thanks for all the sweet comments for my son with Scotty (and his various other mounts). This child has a natural love for horses (and other animals too). He gets tickled when I tell him about comments you leave for him. Every now and then he reads them his self. But he is a bit too wiggly to sit here long. LOL.
I love seeing children with horses! So you know I enjoy watching him with Scotty. It has made him so happy to have Scotty here. He is always talking to and petting on Scotty. Scotty has an expression that says he enjoys my son and loves the attention. Scotty is such a sweet natured horse:~)

If you have a sweet natured horse and a cute kid with a special bond, please tell us about them in your blog. I know my son would love to hear about them!

Fancy is leaving a Peaceful, loving, Sunday nights vote.

My Fancy is not spending every waking hour in Scotty's face now. She is eating again and wondering around as normal. She even stands all the way across the corral away from Scotty now.
Fancy and I had our first ride out with more than one horse today. What a ride it was. Fancy was very excited! She had to be first every moment and she left everyone behind with out any hesitation or care. King Kong, Trigger, and one of my brother's friends came to our house and we rode out for a while. Fancy stopped to urinate beside the road and the guys kept going. When she completed her business, she hopped up and just pitched a fit because she was not in front anymore. I had to get onto her for a bit. But, when were back in first place she was happy again. King Kong was on his best behavior today and my brother was soooo happy with him. All the horses were very good today. Except that one indecent when Fancy got upset for not being in the lead.
After Fancy and I returned, my son rode Scotty bareback and groomed him. Scotty seems to be very happy with my son handling him. My son is very happy too. I will post some new photos of Scotty and my son soon.

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!

I went to the allergist Wednesday and we have to do more testing with the actual foods that I ate.
My friend sent her Appaloosa horse, Scotty, to stay with us for a while. Hopefully Scotty will be a good boy for my son to ride. We picked Scotty up Wednesday evening. I was not going to make a profile for Scotty, but my son is very excited and wanted Scotty to have his own page. LOL. I will post new photos to Scotty's page every now and then for my son.
It is perfectly fine if you don't worry to vote for King and Trigger's page or Scotty's page. I know how hard it is to keep up multiple pages. I will read all my blogs, but I don't think I will be able to read the blogs on each page EVERY day. If you have a message that I will need to see that day, please leave that on Fancy's page. I have so much going on lately, seems like most days, I only have enough time to leave a vote for your main page or only one of your pages.

Today's photo was taken on September 28, 2011. My son and Fancy get bored riding in the corral. So I started leading them around the block. I hope you have time to view our latest video on HC. It is of my son's first lessons on Fancy, titled: 6-2011 Learning to Ride Solo.
Fancy has a new tooth on the top right side. At first it looked horrible. Finally it grew in and looks normal. I thought my little girl would need braces. LOL. Have you ever noticed a young horses teeth coming in? Sometimes they look very funny.
There is the possibility that I will be offline Wednesday due to my doc visit for the allergy testing. They said the test could take a couple of hours. After the test I have to get my usual house stuff done. If I am able timewise, I will blog and vote Wednesday.

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?

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.

"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.

Do you wonder what our horse pals think when we visit them or when we leave them? Fancy looks like she is happy to see me coming. As she watches me walk back into the house, she has a very content look upon her little (big) horsey face also. That lets me know she was happy with the time that we had spent together and she knows that I will return to care for her. I bet she does wonder why I live in a separate barn when I could stay outside with her. LOL. What do you think your horse pals think when they see you coming and when you leave?

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!

“GRAMMAR HAS GOTS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANTEST THINGS EVER? (unknown)

Fancy is dropping this Monday vote for you ♡

Have you ever seen a horse lay and roll too close to the pipe fencing and they get their rear legs stuck in the fence? Fancy did this about 2 times when she was a yearling. One time I had to take the panel lose so she could free herself. That was probably dangerous for me because I had to hold the panel, but I did leave one of the fasteners in. Seeing the scratches on her lower hind legs, it seems she has done this a few days ago. Do they just have to learn not to do this or is anything besides running a string of electric to prevent this from happening. Usually they don't repeat it too many times. Maybe she will be more careful now that she is older and knows again how unpleasant it is.

Thanks to my HC friends for prayers and support during last week. I am finally feeling normal again. After that experience I am ready for the allergy test so I can stay safe. This was a bit upsetting for me because Fancy's doggone coggins just expired and I was about to load Fancy up for her vet appointment to get that coggins updated. Instead, I got a doc appointment and had to use the coggin's money for allergy meds. I had to reschedule her vet appointment! Now I don't know if that coggins will be back in time for us to make the local horse show in our town in September. If we make it, that will be our first show! I will see.
I tied Fancy while I cleaned her courtyard(cause she is the queen. LOL!). Finally, Fancy and I had our time together. Fancy seemed so happy. I didn't ride her or do any lessons. We just hung out in the yard and she ate grass while I groomed her. Just a pleasant quiet time.

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.” (Albert Einstein)

Fancy is leaving a Friday vote. She is not happy cause I have not had the strength to spend time with her since Tuesday. She pitches a fit when she sees me. I wanted to spend time with her but I just didn't feel well.

Wednesday, I tasted vinegar soaked pork. By evening my lip was swollen. Thursday morning my entire face was swollen, had difficulty swallowing, dry cough & could hardly talk. To the doc I went.
She gave me a shot in the hip that did sting!!! I yelled, which I don't usually do. Had to stay there for at least 30 minutes after the shot. Hip was hurting when we left, throat began to open, & got my voice back.
The swelling doesn't go down completely, it increases when I sleep & in the hour before my next med dose. I guess it will take time to recover.
I have 3 pills, 2 times for 6 days & I have to visit the allergist for testing.
I hope you are well, feelin great, & have the most blessed day!

“He who opens a school door, closes a prison.” (Victor Hugo)

We are laying down your Tuesday vote.

Thanks to all of you who helped with my bareback mounting problem. I tried two suggestions, the first method: I don't seem to have enough upper body or arm strength to make it. The second method: I wound up kicking Fancy in the hip/side. I did not like that and I can't blame her if she didn't like it either. But she stood there and I figured if I did that too many times she would be very unhappy with me.
The technique of laying her down was also suggested. Thus, Fancy doesn't have to endure my feet kicking her in the hip.
I viewed some youtube videos on how to teach your horse to lay down. I tried to pick the gentlest techniques I saw and combined them.
Fancy had her first lesson on laying down Monday evening. I could not believe she did it on the 2nd try. We repeated this 3 times and since she was so nice about it, I handwalked her around the neighborhood and let her graze. She really enjoyed that!
Teaching her to lie down has always been something that I felt was too much for me to handle. I couldn't believe we did it. I think once Fancy fully understands, it will be like a fun trick!!! It is not hard as I thought it would be, but it would have been easier if I had taught it when she was smaller. Have you ever taught a horse to lie down?
