PLEASE vote HOTD! ★ Kaita 201207 ★

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'S PERCEPTIONS, in honor of Angel Pixie Dust's (profile 101958) May HOTM campaign for our Angel Joanna, ANGELS HAVE NO PHILOSOPHY BUT LOVE:
"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!!!

Love From our herd to yours♥

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

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

A true inspiration: Helen Wicke January 1, 1997-September 23, 2011 ♥ & Pixie Dust 1991-February 27, 2012 ♥

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 ♥

Let us remember our HC angels as we end this year. It has been extremely tough to lose HC pals, both human and equine. Life is short, loss is permanent. I pray we become better people each day.

It is muddy here, I would like some dry ground under my feet:)
I wish Fancy could share in all the Christmas activities. My family thinks I am crazy, and I know that is not possible, LOL. My son and I watched Scrooge last night before. I love Christmas movies that I remember watching when I was a kid. I think my favorite has to be A Charlie Brown Christmas. Do you have a favorite Christmas movie?

“I would rather be able to appreciate things I cannot have, than to have things I am not able to appreciate.” (Elbert Hubbard)

Fancy has stopped by with a good night vote for you.

Saturday I spent with Fancy & what a peaceful time it was. Saturday night we went skating, I guess that will be a part of our routine now, horse activities and then roller skating. Yet again, with these wheels strapped to my feet, I did not fall down, I even speed up a bit! That is a huge accomplishment for me!

Today was a very pleasant NC day. It was a little cool, but comfy. We spent Sunday evening with Trigger and my brother. My son and my niece had fun riding Trigger. He is a very sweet horse.
I see our horses as being very human like in nature. Every day we provide their needs and give them extra. Sometimes our horses don't listen to us and they do not care for what we want. I see how our Lord feels when we chose not to do as he instructs us. Even when we are not on our best behavior he still loves us and provides our needs. And we love our horses just the same. We love them the day they behave perfectly and the day when they frustrate us. How about that. Horses are just like us.
I hope you have enjoyed a blessed weekend with family and friends, Mostly horses! Don't hesitate to stop by and tell us how your weekend went?

Fancy & I leave a Monday morning RETURN to HC vote!!!
I hope & pray no one was harmed in the earthquake & each family is safe & in good spirits.

I meet Deb & Lady Jane (profile #189648 ), and company! What a wonderful group of friends to make! I was so excited I totally exhausted myself! It was awesome to see the beautiful horses & riders on the beach! They actually had the ACTHA ride along the shoreline!!! How awesome is that? We sat at the campsite enjoying stories and getting acquainted while my son helped Hollie tend to the horses. He enjoyed that most of all. Deb & Lady Jane's group left out for a night stroll along the beach as we were leaving for home. With each breath I longed to ride my Fancy Walk N That Way along the beach. I could not wait to get home to share this with Fancy.

Aimee & Fanny (profile #78967) invited us to enjoy a trail ride with them. This was Fancy's very first trail ride with a group. There were about 30-40 horses on the ride and 2 wagons. My brother & King Kong (profile #218728) accompanied us. We had a wonderful time. Fancy received several compliments on her behavior and some folks thought she was very pretty. They asked me who broke that horse for you? LOL!!!! Me, LOL! God!!! They said Fancy was very patient because she listened to me when I talk to her. I didn't think anything of it because to me that was normal. Fancy is my good girl most of the time and sometimes she is my bad girl. LOL! On one break, Aimee rode Fancy around. I had to tell Fancy to stop following me and listen to Aimee. Aimee enjoyed riding Fancy around in the field. I had planned not to run my little horse, BUT on the return trip, Aimee & Fanny and my brother & King Kong were in the wind. So we did get into a smooth canter. I had forgotten what a canter feels like. Oh! It was wonderful! I was very tired after the ride, but I didn't want it to end.
I hated leaving all the horsey activities but I had another date, one with my son. I promised him I would roller skate with him. I find it quite simple to stay upright upon 4 horse's feet, but if you put me on wheels I am a disaster. I took a skating lesson last week, so I had to test my skills. My skills are not very good, but at least for the very first time, I did not fall down once Saturday night. Feels good to stay up off the floor. LOL.

Then Sunday was the perfect day to give thanks for all the wonderful friends I have made and all the blessings I share.
You guys are like family, I had so much fun, but I still missed you!!!
I will read all of my blogs within a few days. I look forward to reading about what you have been up to while I was away.
I hope your weekend was beautiful and blessed!!!

Here is your Wednesday Vote from Fancy!
All is well here, I hope things are well with you.
Several friends have asked if Fancy will run for HOTM again. We will continue our days as we usually do. Nothing different. If Fancy wins HOTD or HOTM, it will be by chance not by effort. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are our greatest and most fun times for blogging. That is because I love the holidays. I love the life that God has blessed us with. I just wish things in life could be easier. I hope with our jokes, riddles, songs, etc that someone has smiled or felt better.

We have a very packed week from here on out. My time online may be very limited until Monday. So If you don't hear from us for a few days, we plan to be back soon with more holiday cheer!
Love you guys!!!

My son has ridden Scotty for several days now. The last two days we have walked up and down the street. Scotty walks slowly and my son misses Fancy's little get up and go attitude. But I told him Scotty is better for him right now. Wednesday, he finally got Scotty to speed up a bit. It was nothing more than a slight upgrade in his walk. He can't get Scotty to run yet. It is so funny. But I feel better that Scotty doesn't just take off. One day my son might get him to run a little. LOL. I am not in a hurry for that.
While I walk with them, Fancy is pitching a fit, rearing, kicking, screaming. She really does not like being left behind. When I know my son and Scotty are working together, I can bring Fancy along. But she will have to wait just a little and let things work out.

Thanks for all the sweet comments for my son with Scotty (and his various other mounts). This child has a natural love for horses (and other animals too). He gets tickled when I tell him about comments you leave for him. Every now and then he reads them his self. But he is a bit too wiggly to sit here long. LOL.
I love seeing children with horses! So you know I enjoy watching him with Scotty. It has made him so happy to have Scotty here. He is always talking to and petting on Scotty. Scotty has an expression that says he enjoys my son and loves the attention. Scotty is such a sweet natured horse:~)

If you have a sweet natured horse and a cute kid with a special bond, please tell us about them in your blog. I know my son would love to hear about them!

JACK-o-LANTERN
Jack-o-lantern, Jack-o-lantern,
You are such a funny sight.
As you sit there by the window,
Looking out into the night.
You were once a sturdy pumpkin,
growing on a curly vine.
Now you are a Jack-o-lantern,
See your night lights shine.

Fancy is leaving a superb Saturday vote.
Thanks for voting Scotty HOTD, his owner is visiting today and he will get treats & lots of attention today. Scotty has done many things. 3 years ago he was a kids horse. Since then he has participated in some parades and Buffalo Soldiers presentations. Every one seems to like him very much.
Fancy seems to like Scotty too much. The first evening with Scotty, I was not very happy! Fancy did not want to come to me and I thought Fancy was going to starve for not eating. Each day she gets closer to her normal self again. The only thing now, Fancy seems to be a little skiddish, which is not normal for my girl. I have taken her out on walks each day that Scotty has been here. I rode Fancy around the block yesterday and she was very good, but a little hyper to go. I stopped and took her bridle off to let her graze for a while too.
I have been dealing with horses for almost 20 years with plenty of horses and never had my toe stepped on. Well, guess what? Dog gone if Scotty didn't step on the tip of my boot Friday evening. I believe he was very aware of it too! Gonna work on his ground manners:~)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, BORN TO SPOOK!:

Five Little Pumpkins (Hold one hand up with all fingers up, and move one finger at a time.)
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
First one said, "Oh my, it's getting late."
Second one said, "There are witches in the air."
Third one said, "Oh, we don't care."
Fourth one said, "Let's run and run and run."
Fifth one said, "It's Halloween fun."
(Wave hands and arms back and forth.)
WOOOOOO! went the wind.
And out went the light!
(Clap hands once.)
(Roll and hide your hands behind your back.)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile” (William Cullen Bryant)

Q: Why do potatoes make good detectives?
A: Because they keep their eyes peeled.

Today's photo was taken September 28, 2011. Fancy is performing the only trick that I know I have taught her. I say stump and she will put her front feet onto that old tree stump.

How was your weekend? We enjoyed a nice cool Carolina weekend here. Fancy's hooves had grown out and were beginning to chip, so I decided to try my hand at rasping. I had the tools for over a year, but I was afraid to try. I looked up how to trim hooves on youtube and I did it! I did as little as possible since it was my first time. Made my back hurt, but no more chipping hooves for now. I was very glad they didn't need to be trimmed, only shaped up. I tell you if you ever try it, you will appreciate a farrier with a strong back, LOL. Have you ever tried to do a horses hooves? If you have, how did you come out on the job?

“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.” (Edwin Way Teale)

Please view the video tribute in Horse Vidos: PIXIE DUST: IN MEMORY OF JOANNA, which was submitted by Pippin's family (profile #11626) In honor of our friends: Joanna Wicke her horses, Pixie Dust (profile #101958), & Brisco (profile # 140827), and her family.

Fancy is leaving a vote for you this Friday morning.

King Kong was very bad yesterday. King did not want to listen to my brother and my brother's friend wanted to help, so he got on King. While my brother's friend was riding King the horse reared and they fell back. He is ok, only suffered whiplash and soreness. We don't know what got into King. When he reared, there was no bit pressure at all. So he could have moved in any direction and he chose up :(

Fancy was very good. My son has ridden her. He has gotten bored riding in the corral, so we walk around the block and through the car wash. My son loves to ride her. He would like me to turn him lose. But I don't think Fancy or my son are ready for that. Because she is still very young and I know my son does not have experience in case something did frighten her. But so far she has been so wonderful on his rides out. I don't take that for granted and I pray that she remains steady.
What are you up to on the last Friday in September?

Fancy & I love all of our HorseChannel friends and we hope you guys will stop by her page to vote each day in October so Fancy can be your November HOTM.

PEACE STARTS WITH A SMILE;~)
HAVE A BLESSED DAY ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"If all the world were ours to give, would we give it?"

Fancy and Frances are leaving a vote for your beautiful horse today.
Everything that I did with Fancy Wednesday, I dedicated to Joanna's memory.
When Fancy walked to meet me at the gate, I thought about Pixie and Brisco not being able to see their loved friend meet them at the gate again. As I picked out Fancy's hooves all I could think about was Pixie Dust and Brisco. Wondering if they understand the absence of the constant source of love in their life.
As I worked cleaning Fancy's corral, I thought of my granddad telling me once, "The empty wagon cries the loudest." I asked him, "Granddad, what in the world does that mean?" And he explained to me, if I listen, I will hear that a wagon bearing a full load makes very little to no sound. And the wagon that is empty creeks and squeaks loudly. He explained to me how people are like the wagons. Yesterday I thought of Joanna and I felt like the empty wagon. She never once complained, she was always positive, she loved reading of Fancy's adventures.
After reading her memorial posted on Cross Creek Horses page, I suddenly understood why she loved Dancing With the Stars so much.
This young lady had such an awesome spirit! And we never knew how awesome she really was. But Pixie Dust knew this as she visited Joanna during her illness. What a loving and special little horse. God Bless Pixie Dust, she is truly an Angel on Earth.

PEACE STARTS WITH A SMILE;~)
Have a truley blessed day.

Hi! I have been stretching it far and between this weekend. The horse show that I have mentioned was Saturday. Soon as I got my coggins in the mail I mailed my entries in for Lead line and some showmanship classes. My son, Fancy, and I practiced for 2 weeks. We were ready for our first show. But with all the rain, I guess things change. I let Fancy stay out in the cool drizzly rain Thursday & I put her in the stall Friday morning, during the worst rain. Friday morning Fancy had a runny nose and a slight cough. Saturday she seemed fine and dandy. But I decided not to take any chances for her to get sick during hauling. I called out of the show. I was very sad about that. But I did have the opportunity to watch the show with a friend. That was a lot of fun. I also got some photos of Fancy's look alike here on HC. His name is Razzle HC profile #164547
and he is a gelding. I put a photo of him on Fancy's page. I wish Fancy could have met him & his owner too.
Today 9-25, my younger brother got a new horse. I have photos of King's owner riding him on King's page.

I hope you have only enjoyed this weekend throughout what ever activities you partook. If you would like to share your weekend with me, please do, I enjoy that very much ♥

Have a blessed night and peaceful rest.

Have a 'Rearing Good Rainy Day Vote'. I haven't seen this much rain in months! I hope we don't float away.
I don't know what is going to come of this wet weekend for us. Hope you get to enjoy your weekend!

This morning Fancy done the funniest thing. I put on my big yellow rain coat and grabbed the halter to put Fancy in her stall before the heavy rains set in. She was at the gate as usual, I went in the corral and walked to her with the halter, Fancy turned and walked away. I thought, 'hmmm, what is her problem.' I went to make sure her stall was clean for her. While I was in the stall Fancy came in and sniffed me. Then she stopped walking away from me. I realized, she was aware of the yellow rain coat! LOL.

Fancy is here with a cool first day of Autumn vote!

Has anyone seen the new show, America's Best Trail Horse? I have seen the first two shows. I love it! If you have seen it, what do you think? It kind of reminds me of Craig Cameron's Extreme Cowboy Race.

Fancy is stopping by with a Mid-Day Monday vote!

I gotta tell you the funny thing I saw this morning! When I went out to feed Fancy, 3 small kittens that we adopted were all in Fancy's corral in different places. Two of them ran out to meet me. Fancy helped them out with a spirited chase. The smallest of the kittens was at the base of the big tree in Fancy's corral. Fancy looked at it and ran to chase it too. When she got to it, that kitten ran around the tree! You should have seen Fancy looking around that tree for that kitten, It was soo funny. It looked like they were playing hide-n-seek! Finally the kitten ran into the stall and when Fancy lost interest, the kitten ran out. What a silly horse.
You gotta tell me about something really silly that your horse has done. I look forward to reading that!

My brother rode King yesterday for the first time. He said he walks very slow and he likes him. My brother seems very excited about his new horse. King is getting some grain now. Before he was only getting hay. I hope he can gain some more weight. He is kind of thin.

Have a Blessed Day!

HI Bailey, here's a vote for ya. Long time no talk! Did you do a lot of showing this summer? Indy and I did, and he did very well. I've started him in trail course now and he loves it. H.t. bowed a tendon last month running and playing along the fence line with Indy. so he's confined to the baby pasture for turnout. It's only three weeks now, it's starting to set and firm up.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Thanks Bella Boo of DC #9000!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, #13500 THX Mom, Paige & Indy & MWS Zippn By Indy, Tkx Mom, Paige & HT #17500!.

Fancy & King has left a Sunday vote for you!

As Paula says it,"Horses are healers" Now my brother may have his healer. Thanks for welcoming King to HC with your awesome comments and with HOTD! I was surely surprised I called my brother just now to tell him. He says "THANKS!" He got the news as he is riding King for the fist time right now as I type. I am jealous, they didn't call me!!!!!! You all are so sweet to us and we totally think you guys are the best, love you with a really big hug!

When my brother said he was ready for another horse, I was very excited and happy! The lady said King is least 16HH and he was vetted in May, which was good for us because he is up to date on vaccines and a new coggins.

Friday morning Fancy was stiff from the rabies vaccine she got Thursday. Good thing we had Bute left from the time she had a reaction to the vaccines she had months ago. I gave her the Bute, it helped. I did spend Friday walking her around to eat grass to loosen up her body. I walked her 1 1/2 hours several times Friday and Saturday. In her corral she stands in one spot when she is not feeling well. And then the stiffness and swelling get worse.
Saturday Fancy was not very stiff, we trailered to the farm where King is. We had them on leads and let them graze for a few hours.
When I got home, some old horseriding pals came by on horseback! One guy rides a Percheron cross and she is huge and beautiful! The other guy rides a well behaved paint. Fancy wanted to ride out with them. She was doing her little gaited thing all over that corral and pitching a fit. She looks at me like she is saying, "LET'S GO, RIGHT NOW!!!" Well maybe we will get some good long rides in soon!
We hope your weekend was nice. Did you have any excitement, or just a nice weekend?

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out" (Walter Winchell)

Fancy's sliding by in the mud to leave you this Tuesday vote. We hope your holiday weekend was most delightful. Did you enjoy any horsey time? We did nothing here this weekend. Now it is raining off and on☁

Lots of friends asked how I began to teach Fancy to lay down. Here is my comment on that.
1. First you teach the horse to let you handle his front feet. You teach them to let you hold that foot up for long as you want to with out taking it back.
2. Rope breaking helps. I mean throwing the rope all around their body, head, and legs till they are in no way fearful or uncomfy with that feel and touch.
3. You need 2 SOFT ropes. Don't tie, but loop one around the horse's front near pastern (ankle area), you will use this to hold the hoof up only, Make sure this rope never gets tight because it may slow or stop blood flow.
4. Second SOFT rope attaches to the halter as usual, except you run it between the front legs to the off side of your horse and across the back to lay on the same side of his body as the leg you are going to lift.
5. Lift the foot using the rope that is around that foot. Hold still until he is o.k. with that. Hold the foot up at the point that it touches the belly. No tighter than necessary and don't tighten as you go.
6. Teach the bow. Grab the rope that is attached to the halter it should lay just behind the withers and pull slowly and softly until he gives with his nose. His head will tip slightly then he is ready for a bow. He should go back and downward until his knee touches the ground. You have to know your horse. Let him up before he gets upset. Just in case he lays all the way down at this point, keep in mind, which ever way his nose tips is the direction his feet will lay. Stay clear of his feet so you don't get kicked.
7. If he lay down from the bow, you want to rub all over him before he gets up and tell him how great he is!
8. If he didn't lay down from the bow on his own, redo the bow and hold in the bow position and he should lay down. You may need to slightly increase the pressure with the rope that is across his withers. But remember to be very gentle. He should lay down. Depending on the horse, it may take a few times to get all the way down.


Look up Ken McNabb on the internet, his method is very gentle.
I also learned that you do not want to ride a horse up from the ground until it is over 5 years old because it's bones are still growing and you can damage it's developing bone structure, which could lead to future problems.
If I confused you, let me know or look it up on the internet. I hope this has helped.

Also if you know something that will help me with this, please leave me a blog about it!

My donkey hee, my donkey haw,
My donkey sits on a pile of straw.
My donkey likes to eat the best,
but most of all my donkey like to rest.
Tangalayo, come little donkey come, tangalayo, come little donkey come.
My donkey come, my donkey go,
My donkey, he say yes, but he mean no.
My donkey come to me today,
But might tomorrow go the other way.
Tangalayo, come little donkey come, tangalayo, come little donkey come.
