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

"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!!!

Did you know the VHS Is BACK!!!

Thanks for the info on ear pinning! Buttercup is doing much better each day. Monday she did not pin her ears as if she were irritated. While we moved around her, she did lay her ears down a little as if to be listening. I think she just needs to trust being in a new place with new people. My brother only sat on her a minute Sunday, but Monday he did ride her a few minutes! And she was very good for him!

Have a terrific sunny Tuesday!

I hope you have enjoyed this lovely day and shared fun times with your equine and human pals!

My brother and I did ground work exercises with Buttercup today. She is very smart, with the exception of the ear thing. She will do anything you ask of her, but she pins her ears back a lot. To me that is the sign of an unhappy camper. I guess she will settle in after she has been with us a little longer and maybe then she will be happy. Have you ever had a horse that does that? with people? What is your impression when the horse pins its ears back while doing what ever you have asked it to do?

Have a peaceful and blessed night.

There is a possibility that King Kong may be going to a new home soon. This family likes him because he is so gentle and walks slow.

Fancy screamed at me as I cleaned the inside of her caddy. She thought I was going somewhere and she was more than ready to go!

Wednesday I rode Trigger around the yard and down the street to see how he would act. He tried to get out of a few things, but he didn't remember I saw my brother ride him and I knew he went anywhere he was told. So I popped his little butt with my crop and no more funny business mister. He went like a little gentleman. My little cowboy was watching. He is going to have to use the crop to get his point across next time. Poor Cowboy, he asked me to ride Trigger a few more days.

Since the trailer was hooked to the truck, I loaded Trigger in & out of the trailer since he doesn't like loading. Fancy was having a fit. LOL. After I let Trigger eat some grass I let Fancy eat some grass and we walked over to the trailer and she walked up in the trailer and looked back at me like aren't we going somewhere, I backed her out and she went back in. I wanted to take her for a ride, but gas prices will not allow fun trips right now. LOL.

Fancy's Perceptions during the month of April, are dedicated to Angels Joanna and Pixie Dust with hopes of seeing Pixie Dust as May HOTM.

I enjoyed a busy day. Cowboy and I groomed our mounts and saddled them for a ride. It was a windy day, but we rode outside the corral. Trigger had the mind to test little Cowboy today. The little fellow didn't quite do so well with his mount. With his dad walking beside him, Cowboy did manage to get Trigger to follow Fancy around the yard a few times.

After the ride, I washed Fancy's caddy. Didn't know how dirty that thing was. It is nice and clean now and ready for use. I was surprised at the amount of time it took to wash. Took me at least 2 hours. I would have loved to have some help! LOL!

"The wings of angels are often found on the backs of the least likely people." (Eric Honeycutt)

I sure did enjoy Indy's blog about the conversations with Angel Pixie Dust profile #101958.

I also enjoyed your responses to my Sunday's blog. Fancy acts like an older sister that is really mean to her little brother. She wants to keep an eye on him because she thinks he is going to touch something that belongs her. Silly mare. I rode her first then I let the kids ride Trigger and then Trigger grazed in the yard. After I put Trigger in for the night, I let Fancy graze in the yard. When I put her up she did not chase Trigg at all. I was very happy about that. I am sure Trigger was happier about that than I was. Fancy is not very mean to him when I spend time with her last. I think that makes her feel special when she gets my time before I go in for the night.

Saturday morning I missed a trail ride to pick up my brother's new filly. I have added her photos to King Kong's page. Her name is Buttercup, but my brother is planning to change that. He is looking forward to me helping him get her going. She seems to be a gentle girl. She is 3 years old now and will be 4 in August, but has not had much riding. Her riding experience is having small children led around on her.

Love from Fancy & Frances and Trigger & Cowboy ♥

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.

It means so much.....I worked some on the corral Wednesday, putting up metal stripping on the wooden posts that hold the shade up. Hope it stands up to Sadie scratching her big butt against it. She followed me around like a puppy, as always. Plan to ride today. Not much time left before it's too hot....If you're supporting Pixie Dust's May HOTM run, please stop by her page and leave a vote.

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.

Hello Nina, thank you for coming by and introducing yourself. It is a pleasure to meet your acquaintance. You Nina, have a beautiful horse and a very lovely name. You are correct, my name is Erin! Thank you for calling my boy cute, he sure was! So Talladega likes riding in water? How cool! Quincy would never ride in water, he would get close, but never step in it.

It was very nice to meet you, I would love to be friends. I will totally, as promised, be by to deliver a HOTD vote for your beautiful bay boy. Here is one to start with♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
"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.

"God not only sends special angels into our lives, but sometimes He even sends them back again if we forget to take notes the first time!" ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

There are several photos displayed through out HorseChannel this month of Pixie Dust during one of her many visits at Joanna's bedside. Our dear friend, Pippin's owner, has created two wonderful videos and loaded them on HorseChannel in honor of Pixie and Joanna. You can view them in the videos and the titles are: 1. Remembering Joanna, 2. Pixie Dust: In Memory of Joanna.

I remember sharing daily blogs with Joanna. She seemed amused with the antics of my Fancy Walk N That Way. She even told me she looked forward to and enjoyed reading the things Fancy would do. I never met Joanna in person, but she made me feel like I was one of her close friends. I looked forward to seeing her blog on Fancy's page as well.

Susan with Sing and Princeton, sent an obituary to me by email. As I read it and saw the photo of Pixie during one of her many bedside visits with Joanna, my heart felt as if I had just received an electric shock. To know one so gentle and kind with such a strong loving heart, all I could think was how this very young woman, through her own illness, uplifted me so many times through her positive words with out revealing a single pain of her own, never complaining of life's difficulties. Can You imagine being so strong? This was a lesson to me. I may never be strong as I want to be. But now, I know it is possible.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
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 ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
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 HorseChannel.com 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 ♥

LAST DAY TO VOTE, PLEASE
So, sometime things go great, and other times, not so much!! First Carole called to see if Zack could come for class at 4:30 instead of 6:00, I said sure, but , David had the truck so we took the car, it was out of gas, so we had to stop for gas,we had to hurry,guess what, we hurried a little to much and we got a speeding ticket. Then, it was pouring rain and it was windy, the arena has a metal roof, the noise was terrible, we could not concentrate, we couldn't hear, and so he barked a LOT.We had no fun at all, so we came home and Zack went to bed. Tomorrow is another day. I can't always be good!! I love that dog. Left a vote. Wish us luck on our HOTM run, we will know the results Sunday morning. Thanks to all that helped. Love, Donna Lee

Hi Telle, here's a vote for ya. Well, if time will heal Telle 100% and then you can do everything you want to, then you have to wait it out. If that's what you want. But if he won't be better and never really sound, then maybe it's time to move on before you really get more attached. It's a tough call, only you and your heart will know what to do. Well today was Indy's last day of riding with his trainer at school. Karen rode him english today and said that he was very good. Tomorrow two of her other clients and her are packing up and heading to Lexington,VA for a 7 day QH show. Of course, I'll be sitting this one out. I'll pick Indy up Sunday morning and bring him home! I can't wait to have him home. Marion and the boys.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Thanks Mom, Indy, H.T. #9100!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, #13500 THX Mom, Paige & Indy & MWS Zippn By Indy, Tkx Bella Boo of DC #17600!.

Hi Nina
Wow I know this is frustrating for you. Ypu need to come to an understanding with your parents becuase they pay the bills, right? I had a very good friend who's horse got a stress fracture rear hock. He needed 6 months stall rest, that meant that she missed the entire show season, her parents wanted to sell him and get her something else to show. But my friend didn't want another horse, she wanted to wait for him to get better. It didn't matter to her that she didn't show, her horse was more important. I can't tell you what to do, you need to do what is best for you and Telly. I hope that helped some. So,here it is the final 2 days. I'm so excited, I can hardly think straight. I'm so glad I have today off work. I will try to gather as many votes as possible. Thanks tons to all of you for your help. If you don't hear from me for couple of days, you'll know we lost and I can't see the keyboard thru the tears!!! Love this channel, you guys make me want to "do stuff" Talk soon, Love Donna Lee and Royal Mes PS voted. PPS my friend kept her horse, he got better!!
