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.

A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE...
It was an absolutely fabulous service. We were late starting because they had trouble getting everyone into the funeral home. Jackie's bell ringers, rang us(the family) to our seats, it was beautiful. some of Jackie's favorite music was played while they tried to get everyone seated. 3 different ministers briefly spoke and we prayed.. Jackie's son in law gave a wonderful speech, we all laughed right out loud, we all cried a bit and then 2 of her grandchildren spoke, they were just amazing, what nice kids. Adam played Amazing Grace on his bagpipes, so lovely. The bell ringers rang us all out and we went for lunch at a hall, it was a huge group of people all for Jackie, it was wonderful to see all her nieces and nephews there, Trevor came with some of the boys from London, one of the nieces came from BC and some cousins came from Scotland and North Carolina and California. There is a huge hole in that community and in the hearts of us who loved her, she is safe now, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well we got the snow! YUK! Just about 8 inches of the white heavy type! It kinda stopped by about 11 am, so that's when I hit the deck running! Well, not really running! If you really know me, you know my knees don't allow that! LOL! But the tractor, shovel and snow thrower and I all had a good 3 hour and 10 minute workout! Needless to say, horses got hay and fresh water at lunch time and then I got the wood burner and a nap! Along with a couple of Advil! And guess what, this was only a minor one, more coming for Monday night into Tuesday, this time could be better than a foot of snow! Looks like winter is now in full gear! Double Yuk! Oh well, nothing I can do about it, just clean it up! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

hope your having a great weekend :) Thank you all for my birthday wishes here on HC & FB! I had a really nice day. First of all we went to the grocery store, after unloading and putting everything up I gave the horses their afternoon hay. It is so muddy here. It will take a good while to dry out, so no riding. It will be in the 70's for 4-5 days so while I'm off work Tuesday, I will haul out and ride. I brushed and groomed the herd that is so relaxing for me. Of course I sat while they ate their dinner. That was about it for me, had to work today so I hit the hay early :)

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS, IT HELPS A LOT.....
Today will be the tough one, Jackie's grandson Adam wants to play his bagpipes at the service, Amazing Grace, she was so proud of her family. Jackie was in a Bell Ringer group and they want to do something at the service as well, she was a very active member of her community and visitation was wonderful, people were lined up outside the building to get in to see her family, I'm going to need lots of tissues today....she will be missed, We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well we had a sunny kinda warm day today. It hit like 37 degrees and melted off a little of the snow and ice. But that's just to make room for tonight's storm that's movin' on in! Now the prediction is 4 to 6 inches before stopping late Saturday after noon. Took another wheel barrel of 3 bales of hay to the barn. So we're good to go a few day. My hay man has really gone up in price, now up to $6.50 delivered and stacked. From $5.25 last year this time. Oh well! Kids gotta have hay! Got Paige lunged and a nice short ride in on her, she's a dream! Got Indy free lunged and we played ball, but he's not the ball player that H.T. was, that's for sure! Then when I got Bullseye in there, it was double duty! I fired up the quad and dragged the area, he either ran next to me or along side of the drag, so he got a good 20 minute work out! Think I'll do that twice a week with him, he's been getting a little feisty in his stall! And now we watch the weather channel on the cell phone and wait for the snow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi, left a vote. Zip got so much needed arena time today. He rolled several times and ran around. I then played a bit with a plastic bag. Tied a plastic bag to the end of a long lunge whip, and then shook it all over. He didn't care. Then I dragged it on the ground, and he was following it all over the arena! Too funny! He is all ready for the clinic tomorrow!

SAD NEWS TO SHARE....
David's sister, Jackie has lost her battle with cancer. She was a 5 year breast cancer survivor and this dreadful disease returned this fall, after lots of tests etc. it was determined to be in her liver, gall bladder and ovaries it was inoperable, in early December they gave her 3-6 months, she died on Sunday afternoon, with her family close by. Jackie spent her entire life giving to others, we called her Saint Jackie, she will be missed. Love Donna Lee

I want a good pair of western riding boots. I'll live in them. Lol. I'm not sure when Rick will get the shed up. With the Super Bowl, and the upcoming events, he has to work overtime. He works at a grocery warehouse. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, any day that includes food and alcohol, means no days off. He does have Friday, but says he's not doing anything. Understandable, but hard to wait. Austin and I went out to checkout the spot where I want it. Need to level the ground, Getting a good shovel this weekend, so I can start on it. Seems to take me forever to get something done. Ready to get in gear and take a picture of it......And thanks for the birthday wishes. Love and a vote.

Our place looks like a swamp. Horses got fed when they came up (about 2 hours late), they would rather stay in their cozy pasture shed than come up in the rain, that's fine with me. If they are up I will go out and feed, even if it's rainy. Cisco has outdone himself, he is COVERED in mud. Just told him the muddiest horse contest is long over.

It started raining on me on my way home from work. After changing I went to the barn and the horses were already in their stalls waiting on me. I fed them a little early and sat and watched them eat for awhile. The rain has been steady-never stopped sense it started. I have over 1" of rain already!! Mudstang horses in the making =)

I worked from 2 to close, Tuesday, but still had a nice birthday. Got a $20 tip. I told Rick I wanted money for boots. He said he wasn't giving me that much. Said he'd help put the shed up. That works. Austin works on the days I don't, so it's been hard to work on it. With the Super Bowl coming here, Rick's working overtime. Going to be crazy here. The traffic's going to be ridiculous. Thankful I won't be stuck in it. Love always and a vote. <3

Jack pooped, yaaa, he held his head up for a while as Bella washed his face, Casey and I stood him up for a few minutes and that just totally tuckered him out, he still is not eating which is very concerning to me and the vet, I am just so exhausted , having some emotional memories of remembering caring for my mom 5 weeks straight till she passed all the time praying for a miracle, I know he is just a goat but there is a love there of not being able to make him better on a faster note if at all rode Lilly on Monday for a while in the arena it was chilly and soggy but it was a blessing, love Suz and Lilly

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh please do send a little warmth our way! Hope that you got over tonight to get Koot out to play and roll. Well 14 degrees when we feed this morning. And my equine dentist was coming at 9 am, it was only up to 17 degrees then and the barn heater had it about 44 in there. But the floor was cold and even with my pack boots on, my toes and feet got cold. So after 3 hours in there, the house was looking really good. Paige and Indy were fantastic as usual for Paul. Bullseye, not so good, he's always a stinker! But Paul got him done, he only needs a little filing usually, and Pauls great, no charge on him ever! Go figure, you would think that with dragging Paul all over his stall, it would cost twice as much! LOL! Needless to say, lunch only for them and I stayed in the house trying to defrost! So far, our snow for this afternoon hasn't appeared! And I hope it don't! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

the 70's are most comfortable for me! The herd is happy to have plenty of feed now~glad I remembered to pick it up after work-lol. The cold is returning. I did get to let them graze a little before feeding time last evening. Today I will only get to watch them eat their dinner and nothing else this evening. Have a wonderful hump day ♡

Hi, left a vote. Got my new computer today. It has a touchscreen, that is hard to get use too.

Got barn time in today. Bad news, Zip's abscess blew today, must not have completely blown last time. Poor guy, he soaked for the first time today, he was great with it. He now has his own stall, no turnout for him for now. Amber of course, not happy about this at all! LOL!!!

More bad news, Sue called me while I was at the barn to inform me she can't pick up Zip for the clinic. Crap, trying to find him another ride. Ugg, life without a horse trailer is not fun.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh please send some of the warm weather. Well still a bunch of spots with ice, so you have to pick you're way down to the barn, but buy the barn is really good for getting the horses out to the indoor. I keep that path well maintained. Ran to town, well took Beast and got more grain for Indy and Bullseye, and Paige's Alfa-Lox. Got home and Lunged Paige and did more of the circle driving, she's really do well with it. Then showmanship. Indy got free lunged and showmanship too. Bullseye just got to run and play, silly donkey! LOL! Snow moving in for Wed afternoon into Thurs. Few inches possible they said. We'll see! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yep, our weather is fixing to get bad for a few days. Major chance of rain tomorrow and Thurs, then cooler, but back in the 70's midweek. Very strange weather for us for Jan. Great ride today, I think I'm really onto something doing the circle driving first. He popped in one buck during lunging, but other than that I've had more exciting rides on merry-go-round horses!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Yep, it's normal for us, and seems like last Jan we had a lot of ice too, then in Feb it was tons of snow! Glad that you got two days with Koot and a ride in to boot! Shame that you couldn't raise his floor somehow so at least he'd be up higher and not take water on. Well it was about 1/2 inch of ice on top of the frozen ground this morning when I went to feed. Driveway was a sheet of ice with a layer of snow on top of it. We must have had some snow during the wee hours of the night. Needless to say, 100lbs of ice melt down, between driveway and by the barn to the indoor. By noontime I was able to get them to the indoor for some exercise. Then I had the chiropractor this afternoon, all the while driving Beast, it was snowing again! Is it spring yet??? Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
