How We Met

I was looking for the perfect horse after having a bad experience with my first horse, Shadow. I searched and searched, then came across Kootenai. I went out to ride Koot and from the minute I sat on him, I just knew he was right. He totally picked me.

DROPPING OFF YOUR DAILY HOTM VOTE
The thing with Sterly's breathing is due in part to scar tissue in her lungs from a respiratory virus years ago, that ended her racing career. Lungs don't regenerate. Over the years it has gotten a bit worse, at times like season change and high humidity and high UV. She is for sure a Canadian horse she loves her winter, bring on the cold. She looks like a grizzly bear and she can breath, does it get any better... Ventipulimin is a bronchodilator, it opens up the airways, it is used for horses that have COPD or heaves or even asthma, keep in mind that Sterly is not a complainer, so we have to watch her closely, what you will see is, flared nostrils and short quick shallow breaths, get her in where it is cool with the big fan on her and she settled back to normal within 10 minutes. I only use the meds if she can't settle on her own. I'm sure the Cushings does not help matters, 'cause she has all that extra hair...I trimmed her this summer, but this year it just grew back pretty much as soon as it was gone, I have to prepare, everyday I still have her is a blessing, Left a vote, Love Donna Lee

This weekend my sister and I went on a camping trip with our church youth group. The first night it rained all night and me and most of my stuff got wet. Saturday and today it was dry though and quite nice. It was a fun trip.
My job has been going well, I am pretty much used to the routine now. At first it was just Mon, Wed, Fri & Sat but after a few days they asked if I could come everyday except for Sunday. I get there at 5:00 in the morning and we are usually done with chores somewhere between 9:00 and 10:30-it depends on if I have to help with some extra stuff like bedding the calves or helping to load a cow etc. I try to keep up with riding and working with the horses as best I can. It is definitely going to be harder when school starts on Tuesday. I will get on HC when I can.
I am looking forward to seeing who our new HOTM will be! Good luck Spangle and Copper!!

We have made 300-400 votes over the past month and for me being offline the first part of the month that is a lot! Thanks again for Spangle's support!

Our morning started out foggy and wet, but has turned into a beautiful (if steamy) sunny day. Not sure what I'll do, equine wise, but it'll have to be easy due to the steaminess. Hope you have a good Sunday.

Hi Dayna & Koot
Well, let's see, Charlie is kicking much less, and with all the padding up, I feel better about less chance of injury. From his behavior under saddle I have to say he has NO UNSOUNDNESS, all is well. Sterly is plugging along she never complains, we keep a close eye this time of year, if she is laboring in her breathing we put her in with her big fan on, she usually settles within 10 minutes. If it is real bad I can give her a bit of Ventipulimin, but they can get dependent on it, so I only use it when necessary. We had a great ride yesterday before it got too hot, today is forecast for showers, sounds like vacuuming and laundry, ugh..we voted, Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Another nice cool sunny day to start, then it got overcast. But no ran yet, it's moving on in for Sun and Mon and maybe even Tues with temps returning to over 80 degrees and humidity! YUK! Got a nice ride in on Paige today, worked on trail stuff, horsemanship and pleasure, mix it up, she loves doing different things and so do I. Then went to a BBQ for a little while, go excuse to get away from the rug rats, gotta go and turn the horses out! LOL! Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and hopefully you won't be rained on!

Yep, Cisco dearly LOVES his mud baths. Meg will roll, but not so much. Nugget is like "EEW, mud!! so she stays pretty clean (she's also EEW, water"). Interesting how each one handles it.

we will be there every day in September....
Good Morning, I had lots of OT this week, my hands are killing me...I'm still playing catch up from last winter when Trevor was with us, I'm not complaining but, we heat with propane and it was the coldest winter in 22 years, plus propane prices went up 40% plus Trev was cold and so we kept the house warm for him, as a result we were $1206 over budget on heat. It has to be paid by September 1, so the new budget can start, do I need OT?? Yes I do. Charlie and Sterly are good, we will have a nice ride today, this is a long weekend, yippee. we voted, Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. You know you have our daily vote for the run for HOTM! Busy day and sunny and cooler than the beginning of the week. Really nice out. Went to Tractor Supply and picked up a pallet of the pelleted bedding I use. Came home and unloaded 50 bags, only 40 pounds each. Did my one ton of moving them around! LOL! Actually feel better after doing that than my back did before it! But yes, I did have my back brace on, don't worry, I'm not that stupid! LOL! Kids were out all afternoon, told Paige, tomorrow is a work day first, then you get to go out! What do you think it means when she turns her butt to me when I said that! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yes, weather is a bit better - mid-nineties and much cooler in the mornings. Had some rain this AM, so everyone is a muddy mess - Cisco especially went for the dark gray look. Such a pig. I see major baths in the future.

Glad you're getting to see Koot often again. Rode Gracie for about 2 hours yesterday, just slow, but it was nice to ride again. Kathryn and I have found if we take her mare and Gracie out, BJ runs himself, Allie, and Cinni the whole time so we get all 5 horses excersised at one time, silly boy. Even at 6 yrs old, he's such a momma's boy.
Glad you're feeling better. Have a good Friday and look forward to voting for Koot next month.

HI, left a vote. Picked up the last of my things at the old barn today, and said my goodbyes. It was bittersweet. Amber and I accomplished some "firsts" there that I will never forget.

The new barn is great. The arena is one of those coverall ones. Love the natural light, but man, it is 15 degrees hotter in there than it is outside. Great for winter, but not the summer! LOL! I have to get up early and get out there to ride, or I just wilt with the heat and humidity. It is like a greenhouse, or even a sauna.

Farrier was out today. The epoxy fell out a couple of days ago, and she was very pleased with the results. She got a trim today, then in 4 weeks, she will be back out, if they are still good, just another trim, and wait for the rain to do another epoxy treatment.

Off to bed, early to rise, so I can get a ride in!

Slightly cooler this AM. Worked Nugget and Cisco, I think Meg is getting jealous, she kept butting in. Noticed 6 hummingbirds last evening, so put out an extra feeder, this morning there at least 8. Saved a young mockingbird (I hope) from the jaws of death, one of my cats had caught it and I managed to grab her and pry her mouth open. Cat NOT happy, bird flew off a few minutes later. Hope it is OK. Then (UGH) went grocery shopping. Cheryl & Cisco

Sorry for your sinus infection and having to miss the barrel races, best be smart like your being so Koot does not pull something or hurt himself, took allergy tabs this morning before work, I am about to sink under my desk, but it was either take them or sneeze my head off, plus like you I have had horrible headaches, oh well, gonna go to the coast for a family reunion leaving tomorrow, maybe the salt air will help me ??
rode Lilly last night in the arena and played with her she so much fun, gonna be off line from Friday-Tues to get some stuff done before fall sets in so have a great time with Koot! LV Suz and Lilly

Yes yes and yes, I will vote for ya Daliy! We are good, have not been riding much lately sine it's so hot. Rode English a couple days ago, he did great at loping on both leads, I was proud of him! Been having to do lots of rainmaker, his hooves are really dry. His cuts healed nice with that vetrycyn. It's magic!!! Well with jumping, he was great for a few days with lunging over it, but the all of the sudden the next day he just would not budge. Stranger huh? Awesome to know that your running for HOTM, love and a vote!

Good morning!! Sorry to hear you have been under the weather. Those sinsus things are horrible. That is a bummer about the show but I understand your not wanting to push Koot. Better to sit it out then end up with an injury that takes months to heal!
We are making hay this week so not much Butter time. He gets his grooming and carrots every night but no work which suits him just fine. :) We should finish up after work on Friday so Saturday morning I plan to hop no and ride around the proprty and they going to try a new trail in PA on Sunday. Everyone tells me they cut the trails back enough that we won't be ducking to make it thru so hopefully they are right. Otherwise we will be doing circles in the parking lot. LOL
Hope you are feeling better and have a wonderful day! We will be watching for your run in October and will be sure to vote.

So good to hear from you, but I hate that you've been sick and haven't been able to ride. Sounds like you've had some nice time with Koot since then. Its a bummer you can't show in barrels, but you're making the right decision to take care of your horse. Not everyone would do that.
I've been crazy busy and seem to be getting busier, so I haven't had much horse time other than daily feeding and a little groundwork with Allie. Gonna have to dig my heels in and go ride regardless of what needs to be done.
Hope you and Koot get a lot of time to reconnect and ride. Take care.
