How We Met

She was abused by other horses and when I went to look at her, I was told that she does not lead well. The minute that I walked up to her she followed me around the pen. So I knew than that she was the one for me. Then we were getting ready to load her in the trailer and they told me that she has never been trailered before. She bounced up in the trailer like she was a pro at it. We got home and she refused to get out..

The modern Arabian, though no longer a warhorse subject to the cruel and unforgiving environment of the Arabian Desert, remains a breed of horse richly abounding in the qualities that made his ancestor a survivor. Above all, the Arabian horse was bred to serve his master, whose very life depended on the bravery, faithfulness and swiftness of his steed. These intrinsic merits as a synergistic whole define the breed as distinctly Arabian, comprising the essential elements of the authentic Arabian horse.
Perhaps, best described as a cross between an Olympic gymnast and a champion long distance runner, the Arabian horse is unrivalled as an athlete in the equine world. The defining characteristics of the Arabian horse are most often those that have historically been in highest demand by horse breeders of the civilized world down through the centuries. As the original racehorse, the Arabian was crucial to the foundation of the Thoroughbred, contributing the ability to run at great speeds over vast distances with courage, tenacity and superior physical fortitude. Arabians put the “hot” in the “hot-blood”, and all horses considered as such are largely Arabian in origin. The superior density, structure and quality of bone along with balance and harmony of proportion are unrivalled in the equine world and have been highly sought after in all equine breeds in which athleticism is of primary importance. Superior beauty, quality and refinement have always been distinct Arabian traits – all warm-blooded horses inherit these aesthetically pleasing and spiritually inspiring attributes from the horse of the Nejd.

Question of the day: Do you put up your own horse hay or do you have to buy it?

My dad is a farmer, so we put up our own hay. Usually during the wintertime we run out and have to buy some, but this year the weather conditions for putting up hay were really good and we have lots and lots of A1 horsehay.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, remember to vote Dakota for your Nov. HOTM!

THANK our friends for supporting Joanna's Pixie Dust & visiting their page with daily blogs or votes. A special thanks to Joey & Ginger & Angel Betsy, Joyce & Sadie, Susan & Sing with Cross Creek herd, Marion & Indy & Angel HT, Pippin's Momma & Pippin, for taking time to write those wonderful blogs to share their experience with Joanna & Pixie Dust. Thank each friend for adding 'Vote Pixie Dust' to their by-line. Thanks to members of other animal channels for their love & support. Thank dear sweet Erin, whom has worked very hard blogging & creating special pages for us.

I hope through the month of April we were able to express why Angel Pixie Dust deserved your votes to honor Joanna. I hope you have enjoyed reading about the 'Legacy of Love' (so rightly named by Joyce) Joanna has left with us. We worked hard, win or lose JOANNA'S LEGACY OF LOVE WILL REMAIN IN OUR HEARTS.

This saddens me quite a bit, we have lost a HC member. Profile #231827 Ergo's owner, whom operated a horse rescue, passed away Thursday of a heart attack. Her niece Layla has left a blog to let us know what has happened. Please pray for the family, both human and pets and please take a moment to leave a loving kind word for them on any of her horse pages.

Have a Blessed night

My biggest fear!
Everyone has a fear that they have for their horses! Mine would be finding my horse injuryed! The other day I walked out to Candy's stall, she was in the back of it and when she walked up to me, there was blood running down her forehead! I have searched the stall over and over and have not found where she would have cut herself at. The cut is healing nicely! Thankfully it wasn't deep and she is feeling fine because when I was texting a friend, she flipped my phone shut just hours after I found her injuryed!

"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!!!

Hey guys!! Thanks for visiting my page and voting! I know I don't get on here as often as I would like but when life is thrown in your face you have to take it and run with it and cherish all of it that you possibly can!! The weather at my house is very windy and it is hard to ride because Candy doesn't like wind too good! So I have to keep her in the stall on windy days. She is liking it in there because she gets to spend time with me a lot more:) So I just thought that I would chat a few words of thanks to all my friends on here!!! Thanks bunches:)

I wasn't there when it happened, but Little Buttercup was ridden today! My brother's friend rode her all around the field and then up the street and out of sight. Upon their return, this guy asked my brother how much he would take for her! Well, no sale today buddy! LOL! My brother videoed some of it on his cell phone, but he could not get the video to send.

King Kong is doing great since being at his new home. It didn't take him long to feel at home.

"The guardian angels of life fly so high as to be beyond our sight, but they are always looking down upon us." (Jean Paul Richter)

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.

Enjoy a Blessed Easter season

"Sometimes even the flight of an angel hits turbulence." (Terri Guillemets)

MESSAGE FROM JOANNA'S SISTER APRIL 4, 2012: I just found the webpage on HorseChannel and it is so sweet. My parents and I are really appreciate of everyone's kind gestures, which mean so much to us. Thank you!!

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.

HorseChannel friends are the BEST!!!
Be Blessed ♥

"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.

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 ♥

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 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 ♥
