How We Met

I found him August of 2011. He was being boarded at my lesson barn. His mane had been rubbed off so he had a mohawk then. One day my father went to pet him and he fell asleep on his shoulder.So I tried him out and bought him. :).

COWBOY & TRIGGER: A TALE OF TWO:
March 2011 be brought Trigger to our house for the weekend. Little Cowboy enjoyed having Trigger home, so we never took Trigger back to the farm to live. During the winter months, Cowboy took care of Trigger while Trigger learned that Cowboy was his boy, and Cowboy began learning to ride Trigger. (you know, the way he likes to be handled and not handled. We are still working on that one.) Things were looking GOOD for Cowboy and Trigger!

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.)

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!

Thanks so much for your vote...it was such a wonderful surprise to see Luna had been voted HOTD...and she wasn't even running for it! I gave her extra carrots, of course. I went riding yesterday, but afterwards I tried something I saw in a YouTube video. I started teaching her to "shake hands" (or hoofs? LOL). She started getting the idea of what I want after about 15 minutes. She doesn't offer up a hoof on command yet, but she started lifting her hoof towards me (instead of backwards, as if I was going to clean the hoof)and letting me hold it as long as I like. So that's progress, and today I will repeat until she gets it. It's just a stupid trick, but it's fun!

It's getting real cold around here now, but that won't keep me away from Luna. Have a horsey day! Voted.

Friday my truck did not start. My neighbor drove Little Cowboy to school & I rode Fancy to after school pic up. I got there early so Fancy could settle in and see the activity there. Some teachers were a bit concerned! The school superintendent came to ask me what was going on. I told him & he was concerned. Fancy does not cotton to all strangers & he might have been one she had concern for. He patted the middle of her face while a school bus came by, she backed & pulled away. Now Fancy is not afraid of the bus, but he made her feel a bit unsafe. Other wise she was fine & dandy. After he left, we did some ground work to help clear her mind.
I noticed a window full of children with eyes wide! I heard screams of "A Horse!!!!" After school let out, one little girl came over to ask if this was the horse she saw at the fair 2 weeks ago. Some of the children came over to rub her & she stood nicely.
Finally Little Cowboy came running up. I told him not to run because I had to stop the other children from running up to her. He had to leave his trombone in his locker. I hung his 50 lb book bag on the saddle horn & he sat in my saddle while I walked them off school campus to find a quiet parking lot where I could get into my saddle. Little Cowboy slid back into his buddy seat & we were on our way. Fancy was walking fast! I thought her interest was getting back to Trigger. I asked Fancy to enter the 1st driveway at home, & she pulled away. I wanted to see what she had in mind. I thought she wanted to enter the 2nd driveway, so I let her go. To my surprise, she kept going to the end of the road & started into the woods. We could not go for a fun ride, I had to get that huge book bag off of her. Bless her heart.
We relieved Fancy of the extra weight, saddled Trigger & we did ride. I don't know what Fancy was looking for, she didn't want to be still. She wanted to keep moving. When I was ready to go in she was still in go mode. Maybe she was searching for the other horses that she has been riding with lately. But she won't find them around here.
Saturday, my brother & I traveled out to met some new horsey friends. It was late when I got home and I was extremely tired.

How has your weekend been?
Have a Blessed day ✞

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!

All righty! Saturday morning I felt horrible due to a sinus infection. My nose was not working, my head felt heavy and much larger than normal. LOL. I found some of Little Cowboy's decongestants in the cabinet and took that. I did not take our adult meds because they would have put to sleep like a baby. With hesitation, I pressed on to make the fair show. We entered the barn and I had to find a space we liked. I chose the spot beside the middle barn door. This was ok till the golf cart came through. The first time Fancy did not like it one bit and she pulled a little. I talked to her to calm her down. When it came back through, she came towards me and I talked to her and she did not pull any more. But she still did not like it. A few minutes before show began, I got into a sneezing fit. Little Cowboy helped with Flag presentation. I missed Flag presentation this time because I had to stay with Fancy. Getting her clean was a struggle since I felt so bad. I used Show Sheen this time and it was like barn dust was attracted to the white markings on her neck. I managed to get that dust off . There were over 35 horses there, a lot of them were perfectly groomed horses and I asked myself what am I doing here? My horse is not polished like that! Before our classes began I was breathing and feeling better. We were entered in 2 classes. In halter for mares Fancy won 3rd place! I was totally shocked. Our last class was Most Colorful in all breeds. Little Cowboy formed a cheering squad for us. I heard many cheers when the judge looked over Fancy but I could not see who was cheering. In Most Colorful, Fancy won 2nd place! This was really a shocker for me. When they called my number I stood waiting to see who would go up and then the announcer said our names and I was like REALLY? I was very happy that I had pressed on and made the show!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
When you're back against the wall
And you feel like giving up
This is only a mountain
You don't have to find your way around it
Tell it to move, it'll move
Tell it to fall, it'll fall
This is only a moment
You don't have to let your fear control it
Tell it to move, it'll move
Tell it to fall, it'll fall
You've gotta find a second wind
It's not as high as you think it is
Don't give up and don't you quit
You gotta climb if you wanna win
And I know it looks big
And I know you feel small
But just a little bit of faith can change it all

I had Sadie and Star out of the corral for a couple of days. Since the corral is small, they're able to get some exercise and get away from some of the flies. Had to put them both up, because Sadie was into everything. She took the doors off of my tough shed where I had some hay stored and dragged it out. Good there wasn't much. Such a pretty pain in the behind. It was 104* today. It's cooling down. Hugs to all of you. Voted.

Sunday's showers of rain are blessing our land. Saturday's warm sun and gentle breezes were spectacular as Fancy and I traveled with our horse club Saturday morning to the Cowboy capital of NC, Love Valley. Fancy showed what a beautiful girl she is by being well behaved. It was delightful to see a town where horses were number one! No cars or trucks allowed! We saddled up and rode into town before 10am and the place looked like a ghost town. After 10am, the shops open up & town is exciting! Being in town actually felt like we were in a different time long ago! They tell me nightlife in town is just like being in the old days too, the saloons are full & wild. When all horses were saddled, we took a longgg trial ride under a beautiful sky as we appreciated the gentle NC breeze & adored rolling hills of the valley. I saw the cutest tiny yellow flowers that looked like members of the Sunflower family. It is amazing how each trip to different areas reveal similarities & differences. I believe the best way to see God's amazing creations are by horseback. There were horses of every color to see! We met a tall lanky TWH gelding that looked like Fancy, but they are not related. I also met a Gypsy man & his horse who were on their 4th week of camping there. After the trail ride, we enjoyed dinner at the lovely home of a family in our horse club. I plan to post pics of our trip during this week.
They get visitors from all over the world. Have you ever visited Love Valley, NC or any other place like it?

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes...he is pure air and fire...the prince of palfreys; his neigh is like the bidding of a monarch and his countenance enforces homage." (Williams Shakespeare, "Henry V")

Fancy and Trigger wish you peaceful rest as they leave this good night vote for you :)

It sure does get cool these nights. How are nightly temps at your house?

I enjoyed a lovely afternoon with my middle son, horses, and doggies. My son can crack a bull whip. I have been trying to do this for years. Finally today I did it ONE time. It would not work after that. Ha, ha. I did manage to sting my belly one good time. That was the end of my trying.

Fancy and my 14 week old Siberian Husky pup = Bandit seem to get along fine. Bandit was bouncing all over Fancy while she ate grass. When I brought my 10 month old Siberian Husky = Tori out, Fancy snorted at her, but Trigger and Tori got along just fine. Bandit ran to hide from Tori and he would peek out to see where she was. Fancy & Bandit think Tori's hyperness is annoying. LOL.

It hasn't rained, anymore, since Monday night. We're all good. The desert soaked up the rain, so, no flooding. The girls have been out of the corral for several days. Sadie was running and playing. Sure hated to put her up. She's got piles of poo everywhere. Star wasn't thrilled about going back into the corral, either. I'll let them out some Thursday. Just love them and the way Sadie loves to hang around me. Getting their hooves done in a couple of weeks, then ride time. Hugs and a late Wednesday vote.

“Hit the Trail!”

Fancy and Trigger are pawing your voter horseshoe 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?
Enjoy a beautiful Autumn day :)

Hi Pal, here's a vote for ya. Sounds like Pal just had a little cool air up his butt and felt good and wanted to jump around to tell you so. LOL! Glad that you stayed on and are okay. What a great ride today on Paige! She rocked today in her loping! Her jogs were true and so up and collected, what a difference having your trainer work them once a week and tune them. Plus I learned more new stuff yesterday to work on with her, it's so different having a really good pleasure horse. Mr Indy and I did our trail work over a new pattern, he had fun, he likes to do that kind of thing, he hates going in circles. LOL! Marion and the blondies.

The profile photo shown today on Little Cowboy & Trigger's page is of them presenting the US Flag at our last fun show this past Sunday.
Little Cowboy & Trigger were the only horse & rider team ready for the job of presenting the flag, so they went it alone. It was very nice to see that flag fly, but we hope to have more horse & rider teams ready to present flags next year.
I have seen some horse & rider flag team pics in the VHS on HC. Do you have a horse & rider flag team in your area or have you carried any flag by horseback? It is fun! About 18 or so years ago, I carried our team flag by horseback, during parades.

Hope you are enjoying a beautiful day :)

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 Saturday vote.
Last night Little Cowboy & I came into the house late from our horse prep activities to learn that our Saturday show has been changed to Sunday because of severe storms expected to come into our area on Saturday.
We will try to get some things done before the storms come in.


HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!! :)

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 :)

The weather is finally cooling down. It's humid. Rained a little Tuesday night. Going to buy Austin's birthday present tonight. He'll be 17 on September 16th. Girls are doing good. The flies are horrible, but Bronco Fly Spray works well. Not using apple cider vinegar anymore. Didn't work. Not using garlic, either. Hugs and a vote.

Sounds like you are right about the running in certain places. My first horse was like that. Every time we reached certain spots on the trail she would take off. Other wise , I bet you had a great ride.

We did enjoy the weekend, but did not get to ride every day as planned because of storm threats. Monday evening it thundered. There was rain in some areas around us, but no rain at our house.
