Sorry for not being on a lot! I have been busy. Thanks for all Spangle's support!

The rest of Spangle's story:
Spangle still goes through bratty phases, but he has become nicer to Rose. He also is doing better under saddle. We are considering sending him to a trainer, but haven’t decided. The most important thing is that he is nicer to Rose. I hope you enjoyed Spangle’s story!

The weather is nice, The rain here has dried up. Bugs are crazy, though. Put ant bait around the outside of Sadie's corral and put her nosy, into everything butt, back in. She's a busy one. She got into the other shed and drug out the containers Austin put in there. He took them out of the tack shed to make room to store hay. She watches everything and waits for a chance to plunder. Lots of love and a vote.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"Horses first, The rest Later!"

Fancy leaves a vote for you this morning.

Fatima has gone to a home where she will be working with teenagers that are learning to ride. The lady spent an evening with us to evaluate Fatima and this lady saw potential in Fatima. The next day, the lady came back for Fatima. Fatima did not want to go. I called when I thought they arrived home to check on her and Fatima was fine.
I did not have the same feelings of betrayal with Fatima as I felt when I watched Trigger leave. I felt happy Fatima would be getting some attention. I still miss Trigger but I am happy he is really loved by the small children. I have an invitation to visit him. I think I want to go one day during his lessons. I would love to see him with the children.

Have a safe and blessed weekend.
Love Fancy and Frances

Because of the flooding north of us, the river, close to my house, flooded, Tuesday night. I didn't see the water until I accidentally drove through it. Car's been fine until I drove to work, Friday. After I parked the car and went in, the car caught fire and is totalled. Devastated, heartbroken, but okay. A couple of people think it may have been a short in the wiring. Thank God that Austin was able to pick me up. Car's still in the parking lot at work. Rick won't get home until Wednesday. He's on vacation. Sending love as always and a vote. p.s. No word on the horses that were washed away in the flood.

Spangle's story continued:
A month and a half ago, I loped Spangle again. He didn’t buck! We ended on that good note. Also we have worked with him on loading into the trailer. He now will load easily. If he won’t go in, you just show him a crop and he will be in the trailer in no time.

The farrier was out yesterday to give the horses their trim.

We've had a lot of rain and flooding here in Arizona. We're okay here, but some towns, north of Phoenix, weren't so lucky. New River, Arizona, was hit so hard, pets and horses were washed away. I saw, on the news, that 2 of the horses drowned and women on horseback were searching for the other 2. I haven't heard if they were found, yet. So heartbreaking. Sadie's fine. We've had rain, hard Thursday morning, but no flooding at my house. Sadie's out of her corral, because it's slippery and mucky. To know Sadie, is to know she's happy. She was at the backdoor begging for carrots. Of course, she got some. Hope you're all doing well. Leaving love and a vote.

Everet Shaw, who rode his share of great steer roping horses, told Hyde
that Blue was the best horse at Cheyenne that year. Hyde and Del both felt
that Blue started out of the box quicker and could catch cattle easier than
any horse they had ridden. The combination of Blue's athletic ability and
Del's training made him hard to beat. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

This program
produced the stallion Gooseberry, Crow Creek (Lory's top calf horse), and
many good mares. Hyde and Dede then bought the other half interest in Blue
Valentine from Del. Hyde felt like it was a great privilege to rope steers
on Blue. In 1970 Hyde roped at his last Cheyenne Frontier Days on Blue. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

Hi Shadowfox, here's a vote for ya. Finished up all the little details today around the farm. The went over and got Paige ready for her lesson, I didn't ride, my left hip is out! Oh yeah, lucky me! Did to much lifting hay yesterday! Without my back brace on! Stupid Me! Laurel and I gave her a bath, since it went up to 86 degrees today, she worked up a lather! Laurel even rode her today. Got home and turned the boys out while I hooked up the trailer and loaded my bedding, yes with my back brace on! Shaved Indy, just in case I show him in halter again. So it looks like we're ready to leave around 9 am and go and pick up Paige and her work gear and caravan it to the Fair Grounds. Catch y'all on FB and on HC on Monday night. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

☆ we had a nice peaceful weekend. The most work I did was go to the store and get grocery’s and bought some school clothes for our grandson to start pre-k! Horses were wormed and got their fly application. Cliff showed me how to pick up the round bale with the hay buggy. We will work on me running the tractor soon. Have a wonderful day!

*Good morning vote for you*
Hope you had a great weekend.
Fancy and Fatima are not up to any thing. No work, just eating.
We have enjoyed many days of mild temperatures here. Not too hot at all. But would you know it is getting hot now.
It is that time again! We are about to do some last minute back to school shopping.
Have a blessed Monday

Hyde inherited from his father the satifaction of riding a good horse he knew he had raised. In the fall of 1956, Ken Gunter gave Del Haverty the pick of the Red Man colts. Del picked a blue roan stallion named Blue Valentine. Del trained Blue to rope calves, tie-down team rope, and haze dogging steers. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

Around 1951 they purchased Texas Blue Bonnet, a son of Joe Hancock. They started crossing him on their own mares and in 1955 a patron mare bred to him produced a foal named Plenty Coup, who went on to also produce many top colts. At about the same time my grandfather King Merritt, brought one of the first Quarter horse stallions, "Ole Red P-9" to Wyoming. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
Here is a good night vote for you.

I have had a lot of people interested in Trigger this week. I have not been in the house much. That is why I have not been on the computer.

The events of 8/12/2014:
A kind lady adopted Trigger to help out at her children's riding facility. I am happy and sad at the same time. She led him to her trailer and he tried to get back to me. I felt so bad. I felt like I was betraying him. She led him to the trailer and he looked in and then looked back for me. Wow. He has never paid me any attention. He only loved after my little Cowboy till now. I felt so bad. I told her just ask him to go on, he will. He always tries to do what you ask him. She kindly asked him and he went. She tied him up and the stallion divider was closed. Trigger watched out of the side vents and neighed back to us as I watched him disappear. I turned to go back into the yard and I had to stop and try not to cry. But I cried anyway. I will miss that little guy. The best horse I have ever been around. Well, now he has the chance to help some wonderful children learn to love. I am happy, and still sad.
It has been a hectic week for us.

I have two people interested in Fatima. Hopefully someone will want to adopt her and work with her.

I believe I will be freed up by Thursday and be back online.
Have a blessed day.
Love from Fancy and Fatima and Frances

We brought our slant load trailer to pick Spangle up. A little excitement on the way, we had a blowout on the trailer! Thankfully we didn’t have Spangle yet. We changed the tire and went and got Spangle. When we arrived, Spangle looked a little chubbier than he did before(He was chubby before too), but that was ok. They said he was a great loader. They were wrong. It took a little while to get him in the trailer, but we did it.

Charlie 8 months after being rescued

How could anyone throw away much less abuse such a sweet kind intelligent horse? I no longer ride Charlie and Charlie is no longer ridden,but it would be painful to him and I figure he has been through enough already. And so I retired him and now he is my BFF and big red dog. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

How we found/bought Spangle:
We needed a horse to keep Rose company, but we also wanted a horse for my mom to ride. I found Spangle on Craigslist. We went to look at him. He was the perfect size for my mom and was calm. My mom also liked his personality. A week after going to look at him we brought our trailer to pick him up… More tomorrow!

I lunged the horses yesterday. Spangle did great! I expected him to be a little grumpy, but he wasn't! He was good. Rose was her normal frisky self:)

Charlie says "unfortunately my new mom (Lahle) lost her own horse, just after I arrived at Far West Farms. She was absolutely devastated. Far west's kind barn manager knew how sad she was and let her take me on as a project since she really did not want anything to do with horses anymore and I did not want anything to do with people. We were a perfect match and bonded quickly, and before long, Far West made it possible for us to be together forever."

He was so starved he could only have hay and in carefully measured amounts and Charlie was not allowed to have any treats. When a horse is that starved uncontrolled refeeding can lead to terrible medical problems such as colic,laminitis kidney failure, and even death. As tempting as it is to just start throwing food at a starving horse, I would learn it is an art and should involve a vet or someone who has experience with refeeding.
