Nov 2013 1st Place HorseChannel Costume Contest

May 25, 2013 In the Western Non-Trot class, Fancy won her very 1st blue ribbon!
OCT 20, 2012 we rode in our 1st Parade.

SEPT 22, 2012: Our 1st Fair Show! 3rd place Halter all Mares and 2nd place Most Colorful
APRIL 21, 2012 our very first show experience:
3rd place in Adult Halter English or Western & 5th place in Open Halter all mares.

NOV 05,2011 our first group trail ride!!!
MAY 30, 2011 First time I rode Fancy INTO the creek, she enjoyed the water, splashed it all over her belly!
MARCH 12, 2011 Fancy & I rode into the woods alone. She enjoys trail riding.

JAN 08,2011 Fancy won 1st place in the HC Virtual Horse Show.

DEC 26, 2010 Fancy enjoyed her first ride in the snow!
NOV 2010: I learned Fancy naturally does a running walk when I ride her.
OCT 24, 2010 Fancy is learning leg yields.
AUG 21, 2010: 27 month old Fancy's first ride with Tirnanog & my brother.
JULY 11, 2010: First time riding 26 month old Fancy around the block.

JULY 8, 2010: I rode 26 month old Fancy up & down the street past other horses. She was well behaved!
JUNE 07, 2010: I rode 25 month old Fancy in the back yard. She moves more alert out of the corral.
APRIL 23, 2010: 23 months old. After a little groundwork, I sat in the saddle. Since she is very forward, as I expected she began to walk. When she halted on her own, I dismounted & she gave me a horsey hug with her neck. I hugged her, rubbed her all over her neck & face, & gave her horsey nose kisses. I was thrilled with our small progress.
MARCH 19,2010: I lead 22 month old Fancy while my husband sat in the saddle. This was her first time feeling weight heavier than my son at 9 years old. Once I got her going she was ok.
MARCH 16, 2010: I stood in both stirrups & over her back, didn't sit in saddle yet. 22 month old Fancy was just fine.

NOV 03, 2009: at 18 months old, first time grounddriving using her snaffle bit. Fancy was great!
OCT 26, 2009: 17 month old Fancy stands tied quietly wearing her snaffle bit & is learning to give laterally.
Summer 2009: Yearling Fancy grounddrives with halter.
APRIL 2009: 11 month old Fancy trailers now.
MARCH 2009: I gained a wild little 10 month old Fancy's trust enough to groom, touch her complete body, lift all 4 feet, halter, & lead her.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Fancy loves apples, pecans and even more she loves watermelon! During our marshmallow roast I learned Fancy likes marshmallows too.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Fancy loves to eat grass, be groomed and take long walks with me to the park and walking to the creek in the woods. Fancy likes to use her food buckets and water buckets to play jug music, mostly at night. The running walk has to be Fancy's favorite gait because she does it naturally when I ride her.

Pet Peeves: Fancy doesn't care for trains, peppermints, people she doesn't know coming up to her fast & she will stomp big or small dogs that run around her. That includes foxes! Oh no, Fancy's a bunny stomper & kitty chaser too!

My Horse's motto: GOOD THINGS HAPPEN WHEN YOU PAY ATTENTION!!!

How We Met

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: Remember, a Cowgirl’s heart always has a heart full of hope and a life full of laughter. (unknown)


Luke 13:1-5 without repentance we will all perish!
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.


After having 3 horses that didn't work out for me due to disposition or lameness, I decided to research breeds to choose what I thought to be the best horse for me. Winter of 2008/2009, with research in hand, I began the search for MY horse. March 9, 2009, I found an online classified add with no photo for a 10 month old buckskin filly on Horsetopia. I called the phone number at 9am to arrange a visit. That day my husband came in from work and drove us to Floyd, VA to see this wild, untouched, spirited, woolly 10 month old filly named Fancy. When I saw that little filly my heart loved her. My husband purchased Fancy for my early 2009 birthday present.
Summer of 2012: After a lot of prayer and a lot of hard work Fancy & I are enjoying fun shows & long trail rides together.
AIN'T LIFE GRAND!

Fancy is MY blessing from God, she adds a spiritual love to my life that is felt in my heart and soul.


"A horse is the projection of people's dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence." (Pam Brown)

Hi Fancy, 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.

I lunged Spangle under tack yesterday. He was being a little grumpy, but was good. I then got on and walked and trotted him. He was really good:)

I rode Rose bareback last night at dusk. It was just a fun ride. We loped in each direction too:) It was fun.

♡ we really had a nice evening. Turned out the boys to graze and then haltered Rocket and ground worked him. I told Cliff he could do that with him but…he just doesn’t have it in him darn it. It started to rain right after I finished and it felt soooo good. We missed the rain from over the weekend so I thought we wouldn’t get any…I was wrong - Thank you for your votes here is a click on your horseshoe. Have a wonderful day ;)

Hi Fancy, here's a vote for ya. Very productive day on the farm today. Lot's of getting ready for our last show of the season. Well last for us, plenty more going on around us, but this is my usual end of the season one. Then weed whacked the entire place, and mowed the lawn and rail on the outdoor arena, down by the manure pit and back up to the house. Went downtown for my gas for the lawn tractor and picked up feed for the horses and for the dog. Boys out and then me and Harley out on the couch for a nice nap with a cool breeze coming in the front door! Love those kind of days! 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!

Spangle's Story Continued:
Eventually, after working Spangle in the round pen for a couple months, I got on and rode him at a walk. The next time I rode we trotted. We have been working on walking and trotting under saddle for a while. Two months ago we tried loping. He bucked. I made him gallop once I was safely on the ground. Got back on and walked and trotted him. I also lunged him at a lope.

Hi Fancy, here's a vote for ya. Much better day today! Got over to Marissa's and most of the place she had cleaned up all ready by noontime. So I helped with dragging the arenas for her, they were packed solid from everyone walking on them. Then Paige got a work out and I got a horsemanship lesson. Got home and turned the boys out for some pasture time, of course they love that! LOL! Tomorrow I'll start getting ready to leave on Wed for our last show of the season. Well last for me, still plenty of quarter horse shows going on all around us, but financially I'm done for the season. LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I'M GOING CRAZY HERE....
Thanks guys for the suggestions, however, I'm in Canada and Smart Pac can not ship here. I will see what Cookie recommends. I don't think it is restless leg syndrome as Cindy suggested, he only does this at night when in his stall. He has a Jolly Ball, he has a huge stall, he has Sterly visible over the half door, he is outside ALL day long, I mean from 6:30 AM to 5 or 6 PM, he has the barn open during the day if he wants in out of the sun or rain. I have given this a lot of thought and I really think he started this when he was not being ridden last summer, now I have a NASTY habit to try to break. I'm just so angry that I did not nip it in the bud last summer, grrrr. Please Charlie stop this. We are going to cover all the exposed wood and concrete in that corner, at least if he still kicks the concussion should be less. Thanks for listening to all this, Love you all, we left a vote, Donna Lee

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**

Spangle's Story Continued:
My mom did fall/dismount weirdly and sprained her thumb, but was fine. I have been working with Spangle in the round pen. For a while he would buck and then he would have to gallop a lot. Then we’d go back to what we were doing. Finally, he got the idea. Spangle also started beating up on Rose more than we liked. He chased her a lot. We decided we were going to sell him. He was for sale for a month and a half, but nobody serious called us. Therefore, we gave up trying to sell him. This whole time I was working him in the round pen.

FEELS LIKE FALL, ALREADY...
Good Morning, I don't want to keep going on and on about the kicking, it has improved, but not all gone yet. I have given this a lot of thought. One thing I read is that if they are not getting enough exercise they can start this vice. I think last summer when I was off with my arm surgery, may have been the start. I'm just so mad at myself for not paying more attention...I'm researching joint supplements, 'cause I have to assume he has hurt himself some, I'll talk to Dr. C, any suggestions?

Today at work was horrid-I even left a little early-1 1/2 hrs late from normal, but at least not 4 hrs later than normal as I have been!! My poor "ponies" are waiting and looking at me like I've abandoned them!
I had to unload the sawdust wagon so it can be used to haul scrap metal tomorrow since the horse trailer needs 3 new tires before it's back on the road again as we discovered last week. Grrrrr!! Always something!
I work this weekend as well, and Saturday is expected to be the worst, but hey, at least we get free lunch catered....but we can"t take a break, lol! It's stuff your face and go. Yesterday was Fazoli's, today was Subway, and tomorrow coneys!

Hi Fancy, here's a vote for ya. If Trigger at a stables with other horses on the place, or all alone at their house? Glad that he's got a fist full of kids pampering him. Hope they continue and it's not a fade! What a chilly, chilly day! Woke up and it was only 47 degrees and the high today was only 68 degrees with overcast and a wind, so it felt a lot colder! Had a really good ride on Paige today, love that my stirrups are set back even a little further back on the tree. Really makes a difference in cueing her for loping and departures. And my legs and lower back don't hurt. I would say they are back 1 inch more than usual, so it's not a really big thing. Got home and feed and afternoon hay lunch, was tired from doing a bunch of things to help Marissa get the farm ready for Saturday's Fund Raiser for Childhood Brain Cancer Research. I'll be there helping out from 9 to 5 tomorrow. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
