How We Met

I am no longer going to be spending as much time on HC as I used to! Facebook and horse chores take up most of my time when I am home. I will try to get on HC everyother day or so when I have a study lab so I can vote for our HOTM runners. If you would like to still keep in contact with me you can email me at cowgirluphb13@y- ahoo.com and I will send updates on the horses via email. Also the horse in the main pic is obviously not Zuma, lol! Its Emmy the lesson horse I ride when I barrel race or pole bend!

We bought Zuma on November 6, 2006. My trainer who I had work with me and Little Bit helped us go horse shopping. We went everywhere and looked at everything. We ended going about 20 miles away to a riding stable. Thats where we found Zuma. I rode her the first day I saw and honestly didn't like her that much at first. She was very barn sour, and grumpy. After a few days though we bought her, only because my trainer new the horse and knew she was safe. The first few months weren't too good. Zuma wouldn't ride with my other horses or by herself. After about a year she started coming along and would even go off by herself. It wasn't until last fall though, when I started trail riding a lot, that we finally bonded. SHe is now my best friend. She is the only horse that comes running to me in the pasture, and she rather slow on trail rides, but she always gives me 100%. I know everyone thinks their horse is one in a million but Zuma truely is.

Thank you so much every one who voted us your January HOTM!

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 ♥

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“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:
The Horse
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride,
Friendship without envy,
Or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace is served with muscle
And strength by gentleness confined
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.
There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
(Ronald Duncan, "The Horse," 1954)

Voted :~)

I tried the bareback mounting again yesterday. Didn't work out. So I used the tractor tire again. Once mounted, Fancy listened very well. We walked around in the corral and even did some leg yields. It was so much fun!

You have a Blessed day and please keep Paula(horse is Lena #216601) in prayer as she handles the loss of her father and travel.

Here is a vote from Fancy!

Monday evening I went out to spend some quality time with Fancy") I really needed that. We practiced some leg yields and backing with me in the saddle. Fancy was pretty good with the backing. It took a few attempts before she understood the leg yields. It takes a few tries but each time she does them better than the last time. After a few minutes I let her graze and just enjoy some quiet time together.
My saddle is very comfy with the new adjustments. It is easy to keep my heels down and I am not reaching for the stirrup! That felt good! I can't wait to use them for a longer ride and see how my knees feel.

Are you and your best equine pal doing anything special this week?

PLEASE VOTE DECEMBER HOTM;)

Gotta Saturday Night vote for you! I hope you have had as much fun as we have today! Today was bath day for Fancy. After her bath my son (on his bike) and I hand walked Fancy around the block. We let her graze before going home. I saddled Fancy and I rode her around the neighborhood and through the car wash:), while my son rode his bike. She surprised me by walking sooo slow the whole time. I couldn't believe it. I didn't even have to fight with her to go into our yard. She was just layed back and easy going! I was just surprised! I took tons of photos with my clean girl. Now she smells fresh too! I hated to put her into her corral. I hope she doesn't roll tonight:( I will see about that in the morning, LOL.

I entered Fancy in the Virtual Horse/Baby Face contest. Please vote for her.

Good Morning vote from Fancy and Frances♥
How are you today, did you have a nice weekend?

I would like to keep my Fancy shoe free, so I am considering purchasing hoof boots for Fancy. If anyone has any experience with these, please let me know about that. I would like to know about the ease of putting them on, if they come off easily in mud, how long they last, if they rub sores on the horses coronet or other area, did they have any effect on the hoof itself, do you think they are a good investment, and just any info you can share.
If you have anything to share or not I would like to personally thank you for giving me your attention and let you know I appreciate every friendly member I have met here. You are top notch horse lovers, the greatest!
Have a Beautiful Day, Be Blessed♥

Hey it's been forever since I've talked to you!!! I love your pictures! Sorry I haven't been on in such a long time! I was at horse camp for a week. It was amaaaaazing=) The whole week I rode a gaited Tennessee walker named Midnight. I rode him all week last year too:) He was said to be the most difficult horse which was why I got him. Not like I'm any great rider or anything but some people there had hardly ridden at all! He really wasn't a bad horse at all he was super sweet:) he just didn't like people jerking in his mouth. He was extremely responsive to leg though. The first day I was there I hurt my foot. and I still rode and everything but a few days later I had to go to the er cuz it was puffy purple and i couldn't move my toes. And they said it was a severe sprain but because of the severity it was worse than a break cuz it would take longer to heal :/ So the whole week I rode stirupless even though I'm supposed to be on crutches for 3 weeks and not ride for a month and a half! But I have our big fair I'm supposed to be showing in less than 2 weeks! ahhhhhhhhhhh! The trails at camp were incredible! The more advanced riders in our group went on a 2 hr trail ride! It was gorgous! There were huge fields to run through, big rivers to cross and huge hills deep back in the hills:) There was one hill especially that was huge! It was all muddy and much steeper than a 50 degree angle! ha, as you can imagine that was fun stirupless! Ya know how horses will try to get momentum and run up the hill? well we were supposed to keep them at a trot and when I got to the top I was behind the camp counselor. She started freaking out cuz she 4got I was stirupless! ha it was kinda funny. One day was like a carnival day where we just played a buncha games with our horses. Midnight and I won every single one we were in! Egg and spoon was the first one which was interesting without stirrups. We got to a canter and that was about it lol. Another game that we played was a bob for apple race. Four horses line up at one end of the arena and race down to the other, do an emergency dismount (which was interesting one legged) take your helmet off, bob for an apple, get back on your horse and race back down (without touching the apple) another emergency dismount then take your horses bridle off and whoevers horse finishes the apple first wins! We have a buncha rounds (10) cuz there were so many ppl who wanted to play and if you come in 1st or 2nd you get to go to the next round. Midnight and I started in the first round and won every time lol. When I got home from camp I found an unexpected $127 vet bill......just what I needed. Aparently he was playing outside, knocked a board down and the nails were sticking up and he has a big nasty puncture right on his throatlatch...=( well I gtg. Hope you guys are doing well!

The temperature is suppose to be 117* here today and 119* Friday. Going to cool down to a nice 116* on Saturday. It was 110* at 9pm last night. I couldn't believe it. I hosed Lightning down. He enjoyed it so much, he took a nice roll in the poo pile. I'll never get this shirt clean. ...The first 3 pictures are of Randy and Joey the mule. Randy was Star's foal. She is so gorgeous! They're such sweethearts. I fed them some carrots and Austin took pictures, so I could post them. I don't know where Mark was. Maybe some month when the weather cools down, I'll talk Mark into going riding with me and Austin can get some cool shots of someone getting thrown. Randy's been rode less than Lightning.

Stopping by with a late evening vote:) Whew, I am tired. It has been a crazy strange day. But my Fancy time made it all well at the end of this day.
I have ridden Fancy three days straight now. Each day has gotten better. I pray this trend continues:) When I went out this afternoon Fancy was running around like something WILD! Bucking, jumping, rearing, and running! I looked at her and thouhgt maybe I shouldn't get on her today. Well I decided to work it out. In the corral we did some ground work and I mounted her. Rode about 5 minutes, she was listening very well:) So I dismounted and headed out into the yard. We did some more groundwork, then I mounted and she kept her head straight out and didn't move. She is a little stiff on the right side, so I decided to work on right circles. We done several small circles until she begin to listen calmly. As she relaxed and began to listen we made larger circles. Boy, this was better than yesterday! I decided to circle things like the tree, the dog lot, the shed and Fancy was very good. I even let her walk fast and I enjoyed it:) I wish I could have seen it!!!!! We went into the side yard and she did speed up when she thought we were going out of the driveway. More tight circles and back into the back yard, over and over until she calmed down. Since she wanted to go out, I headed to the other driveway and went out and up into the first driveway, did this a few times. Then we walked up and down the street a few times. Fancy didn't want to go in the upper driveway, so, I decided to take her up the street. I walked her past the other horses because I didn't know how she would act. She looked at them and kept going, like she was saying look at me! She ate some grass and then I asked her if she could be a good girl and ride me home past the other horses. Believe it or not, Fancy nodded her head up and down. I put her bridle back on and she stood perfectly still while I mounted and we walked home!!!!!!!!! The only problem I had was, again she didn't want to go in the drive. I gave her a tap on the shoulder and she went on:) I groomed her while she ate grass:) Now I am all cleaned up and tired:)

Finally sliding by with a vote! I will sleep well tonight;) I learned sooo much at the TWH show today. In the halter classes I saw them making some of the same mistakes I make and that made me feel normal:) I learned some good points that will help me with Fancy too. I met some wonderful TWH lovers! I am going to spend some time trying to teach Fancy to set up. There was a lovely black gelding there and he set up so easily. Oh, what a dream to have Fancy do that. I understand the gaits better now to. There was just soo much that I learned today!
When I got home I was so siked up, I loaded Fancy and visited Tirnanog for a few hours. Just hanging out while they munched grass:)

Fancy and I are leaving a muggy N. Carolina Wednesday vote. We are expecting storms and very warm temps every evening. I haven't ridden Fancy since last Friday morning. We have practiced some new ground work exercises. Fancy backs with me now when I am leading her at halter. I still haven't got her parking out:( Fancy is also learning how to leg yield to the right. She almost has it everytime!
Our time together has been a little limited this week due to the rain storms. Yesterday I was going out to take Fancy out for grazing and a thunder and lightning storm came up with no rain. This lasted for at least an hour(still no rain). I thought it was going to get bad so we went to sleep.

A vote from Fancy! Wow, what a day. I finished lunch, headed to the back porch to put my boots on, heard a crack and thuds! I was wondering, what in the world is Fancy playing with now. I looked out the back door and half of her tree had fallen. I ran to get my camera and went out. She ran to me and had this look like she wanted me know something was going on. That is the fourteenth photo on her page. Then she stood in front of me and snorted at the tree. Next thing I know she is all in the tree playing games with the tree. She bites the trunk and prances away. Then she pulls the limb and prances away. She grabs a mouthfull of leaves and prances away. She is walking under it and everywhere, then she prances like she has done something, silly little mare! Ok, I missed this photo, she scratches her butt on the fallen limbs after I put my camera away. Next thing I know it is extremely windy and a huge storm blows through. I am glad it is over:)

Her perception for this day was right on!

TGIF Vote!!! Fancy was grazing in some clovers and she gave the funniest snort, like she was trying to get something out of her nose. I have never heard this snort before. I was wondering, have you ever heard of a bee going into a horses nose?
Oh, Fancy's profile photo. She will stand in the water with both front feet or she will turn that bucket over and beat on it for hours. It is really bad at night when you want to sleep. So I tied the bucket to the fence. But she did manage to pull it away and she did make a lot of noise:) So I took it out again.
I will be online this weekend if possible. We have activities tonight and my son is graduating!!!! Oh Yes!!!

Hi with a Tuesday night vote! Fancy and I have really gotten busy here!

Fancy's video of her 5th ride is on HC now if you want to see it. Please remember Fancy is just learning to understand what I am asking her to do and she had not been ridden a full week when we did the video and my camera man was my 9 year old. He did his best:)

A dry windy Monday vote for you;)
I guess moma nature isn't finished wrecking havoc on this earth because of the storms in America this past weekend. Even though these things go on, we still find little moments of happiness:) I had my moment this morning. I worked with Fancy then rode her around in the corral. She now walks off at the slightest squeeze of my thighs. She is sooo smart. And she comes to a complete halt when I say whoa, (4 times out of 5) and I don't even have to lift the reins and pull. I can even lower my hands even more when direct reining her. Things went so well I decided to mount her in the back yard and see how she responded. Well she was the same and I rode her in the back yard for a few minutes and then took that bit out of her mouth and let her eat all the grass she wanted and then I walked her around the block. Sometimes I can't believe how she amazes me!

Hey Hannah and Zuma! I know you don't get on HC much anymore but since this is the only way i have to contact you right now i will give it a try! How are you doing? Bekah told me sorta what happened but she didn't know for sure so she didn't want to say too much. I hope you're doing okay and will keep you in my prayers. Bekah just said that you had gotten thrown or something and broke your leg. Are you going to be able to come back to school? It's pretty boring here today. Well hope we can talk again soon. Abby

Well I'm late getting here, but i'm here with a Saturday vote. Housework this morning, horsework this afternoon. I enjoyed the horsework, LOL.

Fancy met me at the gate and she was so sweet, like she wanted the attention. I was so happy. I let her eat grass while I cleaned her up and then tied her so I could clean her corral. We saddled up and did some flexing and ground driving and I tell you she was her sweet self today. I thought to myself, 'Now This Is My Little Doll!' After a little riding I hand walked her up the street because the neighbors were practicing for their band and there were very loud deep base sounds. So I decided this would be good for Fancy to hear up close. She walked sooo fast up the street, I had to keep slowing her down. She was really doing some fancy stepping too. I think she likes the music. You should have seen how she was stepping. I think I will try to get one of those radios I can hang on my saddle horn for her, she seems to like the music. On the way back home she always walks slow. I have never had a horse walk home slow. They always rush when you turn for home. I hope she will always head for home in a good manner. When we returned my darling little 9 year old done his best to video us riding in the corral. When I finish voting I will try to load a video tonight if I am not too tired:)

Well, have a good night, it's been a lovely day!!!
