Bio: Fancy was rescued from an auction in Texas. We were told she was untouchable and they ran her through like cattle at the auction. She was terrified. Our trainer spent a short amount of time with her and gained her trust enough to get a halter on her at the auction and she lead and loaded like a champ. Fancy is very timid she doesn't trust humans completly yet although she is very willing and is trying hard to be the best horse she can be. We are now able to pet her face, neck and back and we are just now introuducing a dandy brush to her. fly spray is out of the question she hates it! We are taking it day by day but she is making progress quickly.
UPDATE: 11/9 Fancy is letting us lead and bathe her she is very willing to please her handlers. She is quite the gem.
Update: 1/3/2013 Fancy has come a LONG way from the terrified little girl we saw at the auction. Fancy lets us brush her and bathe her, she even got her front feet trimmed by the farrier for the first time ever! She is so heavy in foal thought the back feet were out of the question because it made her to uncomfortable. She did WONDERFUL for never having her feet done. She needs someone to trust and love, once she trust you she will do anything for you. She is a great little pony. Blanket monsters still scare her but that is to be expected! She willingly comes for food and treats and seeks out human attention now. We can't wait for the baby to come to finish her training she will make some child very happy one day.
1/21/2013 Fancy now accepts her blanket like a champ she is very willing to make her human handlers happy. She also has learned how to give kisses and puts her nose up to you for a kiss.
8/28/2013 Fancy has had her baby and she is a wonderful mother! Fancy will go to saddle training at the end of September. She is currently doing some showmanship work and round pen work as well as just being loved on every day.
10/27/2013 Fancy is now in training under saddle and doing well. She and her baby have been separated and weaning was very successful. The trainer has worked with her on handeling her feet for trims more and she accepts her saddle. The trainer reported since she had trust issues patience and slow but steady progression have been made. She has been accepting of new things and tries very hard.
Official Name: CF Teddy Graham
Barn Name: Teddy
is about 11 years old, he was found abandoned covered in mats and
stickers. We think he was used as a roping donkey and has a breathing
problem from the rope closing in on his neck. He has scars on
his legs and sides of his body where he may have been drug and roped. He
hated people when we got him he wouldn't even come in for food. He has
made big progress while with us but is still a little leary of new
people, although he has warmed up to the kids. He is small but thinks he is big stuff! We would recommend if in
a family with kids they be older as he is still shy sometimes and can
not be chased or ridden. His ideal home would be a home
as a buddy for one of two low key horses probably in north Texas where it stays cooler for him. He can't run for long periods
of time or fight with other horses as it causes breathing distress. He
does know what treats are now, gets his feet done and with patience
tolerates fly spray. He is a cute little stinker and we think in the
right forever family setting he could blossom even more.
10/27/2013 Teddy trust his humans more and more each day he enjoys having a special bond with his adult handler but loves all small kids as young as 5/6 years old. He will let them brush him with no problems. If he has a choice the kids win every time over adults. We tell all our kids about him how adults were not very nice and that he perfers small humans. They all seem to do just fine with him no loud noises and no swinging or fast movements towards his face and he is really good. He has come so far since we got him and could continue to in the right family setting.
