How We Met

After wanting a horse for nine years, I was finally allowed to start looking for one. After discovering we could have two horses in our backyard, stable and tack shed went up and all that was missing were the horses. My mom found her horse first, and after hanging out with several horses, I found one with just enough spunk and energy... even though she was an arabian and brown... both things I swore my horse wouldn't be. True love had it out though!.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Merry CHRISTmas!
John 3:16 (NIV)3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

HI, I was in contact with Angel Doobie's (#211407) owner today and she would like to share her feelings about Angel Doobie with you. This is what she said: "
Besides being the best horse in the world. Let's see he had a uniqueness about him in that I think that I found and not his owner. Also he was super fun to ride. He had this huge canter stride that most people probably would not have been able to sit too but I could. He was just one of those horses that you could drop the lead and he wouldn't move. As a matter of fact I forgot something in my car one day. I of course had him on lead, I didn't know that I had let the lead go until I shut the door and looked down. I saw that the lead was completely on the ground."

I love my Fancy and I love to adore the beauty in all horses. To own or lease a horse so sweet as Angel Doobie is a dream come true. There are many of us here of HC that are living that dream right now!

Still rainy here in NC. We are expecting rains for several days. It is not so bad. But sun shine is so much better ♥

I have been pondering upon a question of my own righteousness. LOL! I grant you the truth I am no different from the lowliest, I have my moments, I don't always make the right choices. I guess my difference would be I believe in God's forgiveness through Jesus Christ. That makes this time of year all the more special.

Love and a peaceful night to you ♥

Prayers for the families in the areas that were affected by the storms.

HI Ya! Fancy and Trigger have a new hay bale feeder. It seems to be working at deterring Fancy & Trigger from piling hay on the ground. Fancy mostly sleeps in it and Trigger mostly urinates in the hay. Now it seems they eat more than they waste.

Have a lovely night!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: HAPPY TURKEY MONTH!
I am most thankful for God's blessings of precious family, friends, having my needs met, and being able to come close to having most of the things that I want in this life.

If any one rode for Veterans Day and wants to be added to the Veterans Day page please let me know!


I logged in Saturday morning, and my family yelled at me to come on, let's go! We went to VA taking furniture to my oldest son. It was wonderful to see him again! This was the first time he ever cooked anything for us. He cooked a nice breakfast for us.

It was very hard to keep from using my right hand after the brace and bandages were removed. I had to back down many times because I made my wrist hurt a lot. I said I would not do anything after church today because I wanted to blog. So here I am.

A wild cat had babies at Buttercup's farm. She left one baby to die. We took in the abandoned kitten and it almost died. Did we have some friends that prayed for him and a vet staff that really feel in love with that little kitten. Today he looks normal, eating, and pouncing all over the place.

One evening a young lady came calling. She wants me to teach her all about horses! I am pretty excited. I told her I would not be able to do much till after my wrist surgery in December. Her response was for me to take my time and heal up completely because she wants me all the way well and ready!

My oldest son and little Cowboy have been riding Fancy & Trigger. My oldest son does not know how to ride Fancy. He drives her with both hands and they look like an airplane. I tried to tell him how to ride her, but he said she will not turn for him and she rides like a bus. I told him when I am able, I will just have to show him!

I want to ride! I think I will be able to get in a ride before the end of December surgery date, if the weather works with me.

Thanks for being great HC pals. I do miss my daily blogs, and I may be able to blog a little more until the end of December, depending on my wrist. I can't wait till spring 2014!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to be like a little kid when time comes and I go outside and do what ever I want to do!!!!

Be Blessed Have a wonderful evening ♥

Happy Sunday to Marquessa!
I know it's been a long time since I wrote in your blog. I'm trying to catch up with all my HorseChannel friends now.
It's been cold here, but sunny, so I've been riding just about every day. Luna's hoofs are usually brittle and chipped, but I started her on a hoof supplement and I've started using Cavallo Simple boots (kind of like sneakers for horses LOL) so her tender feet will be protected. I keep her barefoot year round, so hopefully this will be a good solution for her feet.
I'm heading out to the barn in just a few minutes, as soon as I find wherever I left my riding boots hahaha!! I left you a vote. As always, have a horsey day!

HI! I wanted you to see how cute the winner of our costume contest is so I loaded some pix at the bottom of Fancy's page. The first place winner is the very first photo there. Look quick because I will have to delete those photos soon ")

I also entered Fancy in the HorseChannel costume contest. If you have time, please vote for Fancy each day. I know it is a bit much to ask right now because I am off line soooo much.
I am trying to get straightened out. I have yet another hurdle to cross. This Friday September the 27 I am having my first carpal tunnel release surgery. Soon as it heals, I am expecting to have the procedure on the left wrist. I will be offline Friday and off and on line depending on how my hand or wrist feels and if I am woke because I will be taking my pain meds. I have grown into a huge wimp when it comes to pain.
I have no idea how the coming days will be for me. I plan to be back with you soon. Fancy misses sharing her regular perceptions with you ♥

Sorry I have not been online much this week. My husband is on vacation and we were getting Cowboy ready for 7th grade. We were hardly home all week. Thursday we took Cowboy to meet his teachers. We were surprised to find out Cowboy was promoted into the AIG classes! We were very happy but surprised that no one told us before hand. Cowboy's classes begin Monday!!!

Trigger is back in the space with Fancy. I have learned to put more than one hay station out and Fancy and Trigger seem to be happy and peaceful. However Fancy does chase Trigger just for the fun of it. It does not look like she is being really mean to him. She does not like to eat with him. But I did see her let him eat hay with her for a little while.

Have a blessed night ♥

Thursday evening after cleaning up the corral, I enjoyed a soothing time with Fancy. Fancy noticed her halter in my hand when I came out of the building and she came right to the gate. I took her out for grass and did some desensitizing with different size and color plastic jugs I had tied together. Then I asked her to walk across a huge cardboard box that had been rained on.
We went into the corral for some showmanship and halter practice. It has been several weeks since I asked Fancy to stand or park out. She was with me on everything that I asked her to. THEN, at the end of our practice, my little Fancy parked herself out. I wish I had someone there to video this! Fancy stretched her front legs farther than ever. And I didn't even ask her! I mean she really stretched so far that her back near hoof came off the ground a little. I did not even ask her to park out and she was letting me know that she was willing and wanted to give me her best try. I can not even find words for how special she made feel. Wow. That really blew me away.
Then Cowboy came outside. Cowboy wants to show Fancy in the youth halter class at the fair. So I tried to show him what to do and let him try. Don't know if he will be ready by fair time in September. When sunny skies return to Carolina, I plan to see if Cowboy can work with Trigger for the halter class. They already work very well together. But we don't know if Trigger knows what to do. I do not know if I can teach both of them in a short amount of time.
After Cowboy worked with Fancy, I let Fancy eat some grass in the back yard. I have never had a horse so sweet as my Fancy.
Has your horse ever blew you away by doing something extra sweet?

Our horseshow has been rescheduled due to expected rains coming in Saturday. That gives us more time to practice.

Have a nice weekend.

Thanks for your kind words and encouragement towards me, my family and each other here on HorseChannel. We all need encouragement at some time or another. You never know when you have made someone's day just a little better ♥

Just as us Carolinians began to complain of the heat, we are cooling down again. LOL! I think the horses love it. We are having showers or a storm almost every evening.
Cowboy is thinking of school now. He wants more summer. Trigger is quiet and easy going as usual. My brother brought some squash to me from a man that I gave manure to this past summer. I searched the internet to find out if it is safe for horses to eat squash. It is safe, so Fancy had some home grown squash today. Our whole family ate squash today. I thought it was only fair to share with Fancy since she helped produce them ")
Have you ever given your horse squash, Maybe something totally different?

Hi. We are expecting more rain and heat in Carolina. I have not been able to practice for the upcoming horseshow. I need to do that this week.
Saturday Cowboy and Trigger enjoyed fun horse games before the trail ride with our club. Fancy screamed the entire time we were away. I felt bad to leave her, but it turned out best that way. I did not ride Saturday. I sat under the shelter with my friend's young grandson while the others rode the trials. I also spent the day taking photos of everyone having fun! I enjoyed taking the photos. I will post some tonight or tomorrow.
Today after church my husband cleaned Fancy for me just so I could get photos with her while wearing my new helmet. It did not take long to take a few photos and then I was grounded again. I applaud all riders wearing helmets. I never thought I would like wearing a helmet. I braided my hair back and put it on. It was very comfortable. I didn't think it was any hotter than any other hat I wear. And it did not even look goofy. I know if I had not won it, I don't know when or if I would have purchased my own helmet. And I did learn that wearing a helmet is a cool thing to do.

Now I can practice what I preach to Cowboy! Like several of you have told me, wear your helmet or consider getting one because it is the safe thing to do.
I just love new experiences. (the positive ones, that is)

Has anyone chosen the tshirt from the HC rewards? Let me know what you think about the tshirt. I love it! If you are considering using your points for a tshirt, it is very comfortable and soft. I am wearing it in my new profile photo with my new helmet ")

I do have a friend that is supposed to meet me but I never take stock in anything until it happens! I have enjoyed my time riding by myself so it doesn’t matter one way or another. Limited time over the weekend but will try to leave some phone votes! It has been so hot here…102 but feels like 105 and yesterday was 103 real feel was 107…so I will do what I can early Sunday morning .

How are you doing? Prince won hotd on Saturday. It was so nice to see him in the spotlight again! I'll tell him all about it when I drive him on Thursday.

It's a bit of a sad day in my family though. Today my grandmother died. I haven't seen her for awhile because she lives in England but her last visit here was very nice. Kind of bittersweet though because I suspected at that time that it might be her last. She didn't think so. She was always pretty positive.

I'm thankful that she passed away peacefully surrounded by most of her family. My mother had just got back to the US after visiting her for a month and had a really nice visit. She'll be flying across the pond tomorrow so that she can be there for the funeral.

Rest in peace, Granny. I already miss you! I am also thankful that just a couple of weeks ago I prepared several cards and letters from my sister and me. She enjoyed them in the company of my aunt. I would kick myself if I had waited any longer to send those! Thank God for small blessings.

On a happier note, Pippin is champing at the proverbial bit to be back in action again. Just 3 more days!!! And then he can champ at the real bit! And we can go driving again.

Fancy loves her watermelon! I divided some watermelon between Fancy and Trigger. Fancy ate all of her treat. Trigger did not eat all of his. He left the rind in the dirt. First time I ever seen any horse leave any part of watermelon.
Finally enjoying days with more sun than rain. Sounds like most of us are enduring heat now. It is almost August and we are just now having HOT days. Maybe we wont have too many hot days.

We have certainly been busy. Family trips are fun but the long rides can be exhausting. Funny thing is, if I were going on a horsey related trip, I would be so excited, the exhaustion would feel good. LOL! I think today’s thunder showers helped me to feel rested once again. Fancy and Trigger are doing fine too.

One of our friends has seen how good natured Fancy is on our rides, and he mentioned to me that Fancy’s high strung behavior in the woods last week, could have been because she sensed something in the woods that I was not aware of. Lately we get a lot of creatures coming into the yard from the woods. There are rabbits, ground hogs, foxes, raccoons, etc. Maybe she did sense something. I do know she has never been that high strung on any of our rides. And maybe she just felt a bit hyper. I may never know.

Last week, Cowboy was sitting on Trigger, waiting on Fancy and I, when a butterfly flew by, grazing Cowboy’s cheek with it’s wing. As Cowboy was telling me how soft the butterfly’s wing was, I could hear the amazement in his voice. I told him he had been blessed that day. That was one of the sweetest kid moments ever. Even though I can never tell him that, because he is such a BIG boy now. You know, the pre-teen thing is going on “)

A continuation about DARLING, well, if you look in the photo gallery on DARLING’S page you will see 3 people ( I am the hot sweaty onein the middle with husband to the left, our friend from Switzerland on the right) As they were sipping beers I became overwhelmed that we were leaving the next day to go back to Bangkok for 2 days. I was wearing my polo Phuket International riding Club in purple and suddenly felt such a sadness I had to leave the club. I was tearing up so I walked across the street and went into a store specializing in sandals. Next door at the late hour was a silver & engraving tiny store! I got a silver heart and had “DARLING” engraved on it for a souvenir. I will try to post a close up of it on the page, but it will not be that interesting to anyone but me. More to come from my notes that I need to save to finish the HOTM race! Thanks for being supporting friends to DARLING and my Angel PF, Anka & Alliance!

How are you doing? I am going to write a pure copy and paste message because I am so far behind with my HC blogs that you wouldn't believe it.

A lot has happened since I last blogged properly on here and I can't promise to be on as much as I would like.

Eddie has settled in really well. He and Pippin are great friends but boys will be boys and because of their giant size difference, 2000lbs vs 200lbs, they cannot be alone in the same field. So, Eddie has a pen within Pippin's huge day pen and they get at each other through the fence.

Eddie is the tall silent type and his previous owner has never heard him make a noise. Well, now that he's here he whinnies if we take Pippin for a walk and leave him behind. He nickers low and sweetly when Pippin is put in the pen near him. They are cute together.

We've had a couple of tough moments, health-wise, with both of them. Eddie had several episodes of choke earlier this year leading up to a major case which almost killed him. The vet actually thought he wouldn't make it and we were discussing the dreaded topic of carcass disposal…

Well, the long and short of it is, he's completely and absolutely healthy and looks the best he's ever looked. He's fit and shiny and has a spring in his step. That is, when he's not sleep walking which he'll do on a hot day like today.

3 weeks ago Pippin had surgery for the removal of 2 large enteroliths from his colon. They weigh about 3lbs and I've kept them as souvenirs. He's on the road to recovery and is also doing super well.

For a couple of months he was rapidly going downhill and we couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. Using a portable x-ray the vet discovered the stones. They are so huge that she actually screamed when spotted them on the radiograph. It's a wonder that he was still eating and pooping fine. Not sure how that was even possible.

Anyway, that's what's up here. I will try (really I will!) to write more often.

I hope you had a great weekend! Leaving a vote.

I am ready to train Fancy with the cart! I am trying to figure out if I need to wait after my doc appointment. I think if we get a few days sunshine, I just might go on and work on getting that cart out.

All this rain and being inside so much makes me hanker for horsey activities with Fancy. My mind just ponders on many things to do with her. One thing I would love to do is share her with children. I wish I could travel with her to areas where children have no exposure to horses, and share her with the children. Also people say you can't do things with gaited horses, I would love to try and show them. Even if we don't do it just right, it is just the point of doing it. Is there anything that you really want to do with your horse that you have never done, or think that you may never be able to do?

Surprise!!! For the next 7 days our chance of rain increases each day. How about that. I thank God we are not in a drought, But Lord knows, when the sun shines, I will Thank GOD for that tooo ")

Does your horse sling grain on the ground? Can you tell me why? Fancy began to do this a few weeks ago. I changed her food container. She was still slinging grain on the ground. This morning I put Fancy's grain in a huge water tub. Well, she ate calmly. LOL! I wonder why was she slinging grain to begin with.


Remember I lost something off the horsetrailer on my way to Trigger's vet appointment? Well, I found all three of my stud chains at home. So it was not a stud chain. Now I am really concerned. What in the world did I hear sliding of the trailer that sounded like a chain???

Have a lovely and peacefully blessed night ✞

Howdy ♡ we missed you!
♥ Please remember to send a letter to HC of what and why you love it! I had a perfect ride at Lake Whitney Friday morning. I saw 3 deer at the first gate. Whiskey pushed open all the gates like a pro, then coming back he just puts me right up to them so I can open for him to go in…such a good boy. As I was riding a little lizard lead the way for about five minutes! It was so cute because it was as if he was riding with me. I saw a really big grey crane flying from the lake. Rode just a bit by the lake and as I entered an opened field I saw a momma deer and her twin babies. They had the little spots on their back still…oh the beauty!!! Under the canopy of tree’s I hit every spider web the first little while I rode-yuk!!! Oh well, that’s part of nature; just don’t want the spider on me. The rest of my weekend I rode early on our property and around us. Nice short rides just to keep Whiskey conditioned for our longer rides. It is to hot now to ride Deacon now. Had a nice 4TH, rest of the time we hung gates and did fence work. Cliff wasn’t feeling well in the sun so I had to get him in by 12 -12:30 Sat. & Sun. He needs his meds adjusted, so I made him promise to call the dr. this morning. It’s very hard to see him like that. I thought a few times I may have to get him to ER. Anyway, overall I did have a lot of horsey time and that is what I LOVE ♥
♥ Have a wonderful day, Whinny’s and hugs ♥

Hi, here is a Fancy Sunday vote for you ♥

Hope your 4th of July weekend has been FUN!
The first part of our 4th was spent with my Mom. The 4th of July afternoon, we spent with horsey friends. They live across from the park where they do fireworks! Boy, did they have some awesome fireworks! And their horses did not even jump when they saw or heard the fireworks.

Some days it is hard to vote on HC. Guess they are still working on things.

We have not ridden. It storms every evening. I wanted to ride today after church, but it began to rain and now it is thundering.

I did go to the horse and tack auction Saturday. Had fun there before your it stormed.

Fancy seems to enjoy being alone. Trigger enjoys it too. They appear to be at peace now that they are separated.

Voted, It's the weekend! At our house it is really raining sooo hard right now!!! HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND :)

THANKS FOR THIS HELPFUL INFORMATION SUSAN AND SING WITH CROSS CREEK HERD! ----- (from Susan) here's something I read about horses eating poison ivy:
" But there is a reason to appreciate poison ivy, and that is: horses love to eat it! (But find it on a store shelf? No.) It apparently doesn't bother horses at all, and ingesting it actually helps relieve their inflammations of various kinds. Horses with arthritis, laminitis, and dermatitis are drawn to it and will readily consume gobs of it."

Hiiii!
Voted :)
The cool rains continue to soak the land. Events are rescheduled. We continue our daily activities come rain or shine. I enjoy the time I take to hand graze Fancy while Trigger eats his grain in peace.
Have you ever seen a horse eat poison ivy? I couldn't believe Fancy ate poison ivy. Just thinking of it makes my belly feel queasy. Ugghhh!

Hope all is well your way :)
♥♡♥ Congratulations to our June 2013 HOTM Queen Sterl May!! Great job Donna Lee!!! Fancy Walk n That way ~ you were an awesome May HOTM! I had a crop duster spraying the hundreds of acres of cotton growing by our place. Had to change my plan! I went to the dollar store and the Food Mart 1st then took a ride after it was finished. On one side of us are hundreds of acres of corn that is 5’ or more and the other side cotton. I wasn’t sure if it was weed killer or insect spray; the wind was blowing it away from our area so that was GREAT. I rode the front area toward the main rode. Whiskey walked-grazed, walked and grazed!!! I don’t have much room to do anything else. Reached 94 but had a breeze. It was humid…

★ Whiskey’s profile picture is of our turnout #3. We will brush hog it this coming weekend if our shedder is delivered. It has not been delivered yet! Deacon’s profile is of turnout #2 with Cliff, Whiskey was going to bow for him because he wanted back in the #3!!!!! We only let them on #3 for nearly an hour. Days seem short when you have so much to do! Have a great week, I only work 3 days this week. Will be off Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday! I will pick up my grandson Friday and take him home Sunday morning. Have a trail ride planned for Sunday afternoon ~ can’t hardly wait.
