Dwaine rode Sadie for first time Wednesday night. She was so bad. Had an attitude. He said she was the first horse he's ever been afraid of. He ran her and work her into a good sweat. What a show. It was a battle of wills. Dwaine was great. Not only has he broken horses, but he rides bulls. Total cowboy. He said she's been abused, and it's going to take a lot of training. He gave me a hug and thanked me. I hugged him back and thanked him, too. Sadie's a lucky girl to have someone, so special, who cares about her to work with her. Someone who knows what he's doing. So very excited. Hugs and a vote.

Big hi to all. The farrier came out Tuesday morning and did a great job. Of course, Sadie had attitude. She hasn't been ridden in 4 months because of the heat. Time to get her back in gear....Cowboy Doug was out playing in his yard yesterday. Didn't have his hat on. After Sadie's gets some training, I'll invite him over for a ride. I wish his dad wasn't allergic to horses. Makes it hard for Cowboy Doug. He has to shower immediately afterwards....Dwaine wanted to come over, but I was at work. Will take pictures of him working with Sadie. She doesn't like to run. He's got to work on that with her, too. Love and a Wednesday vote.

HI Alex!
FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm. The colder it gets the harder it is to swaller.” (Cowboy Quotes)

Here is a Fancy vote for ya♥

Today a horse riding pal visited Fancy and I. We walked out to the road and somehow I ended up gettin out of Fancy's view. When this happened she began searching for me. He asked me to walk up past the fence several times, because he had to figure out if she was really getting upset because I was out of her view. When he made the determination that the cause of her disturbance was my absence, he was totally shocked. It was so funny. He said he had seen horses lose it when their horse buddies got out of sight, but never a person. He said that was amazing. To me, with Fancy it is normal. I never had any other horse do that. I just told him my horse is my best friend ever and she loves me more than my dog does. (But my dog is a real sweet heart too!) LOL! He said I would never find that again in any other horse. I agree.
When I went to finish shoveling poo, Fancy stayed by my side like never before. And if those poor kittens came in our direction, Fancy would chase them all the way out of her corral, then she came right back to my side. I don't know why she was so upset about me today. I have taken her out every day this week.

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!

Tangalayo, come little donkey come, tangalayo, come little donkey come.
My donkey come, my donkey go,
My donkey, he say yes, but he mean no.
My donkey come to me today,
But might tomorrow go the other way.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“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.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“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!
