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.

**Videos: "Hurry Scurry," "Kootenai," "Koot's 3rd Gymkhana", "Koot's Life," "Koot's August Gymkhana," "Koot's Sept Show," "Koot's Oct Show," "The Silly Kootenai,""New Adventure Part 2," "Bareback & Bridleless," "Koot giving me a hug!"**

**All the videos of Koot can be found at: http://www. youtube. com/user/horsed- c898**

Koot's birthday: April 10!

Koot's mom, Danya's bday: July 1!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Great that you got all the wedding stuff done all ready. But better that you got to see and be with Koot man too! I think he should be the ring bearer! Or maybe Best Man! Well today is Indy's 11th Birthday. He got the day off of work, a spa day with complete bath and all! Of course Paige wasn't as lucky, she got worked, and since it was really hot, and even with the ceiling fans on in the indoor, it still was warm. So then she got a bath too! Never did get to start body clipping my donkey, it was so hot in the barn and I was sweating so bad, I would have had all his hair glued to me! So I'll wait for a cool day, this way all the fans in there don't blow his hair around and on me. Don't need a major asthma attack over it. Hit 88 today! I think we might just be coming into summer after all! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI, left a vote. Finally, feel better! So, of course, I went to the barn!!! I have missed my ponies so much! Amber is still out with the herd, so I didn't get to see her, but, I did get to see my boy Zip! I think he missed me. The barn is still on quarantine till the end of the week, I think. Feels like it has been forever!

Glad you have decided on a place for the wedding!
Koot time is GOOD time. Yes, we are drying out some. No rain today, sun and a nice breeze, but yard still squishy. Out of salt and low on feed, so went into town today, took 3 tries. 1st road under water, 2nd road large tree down across it, so had to take the long way in. Praying for all the people to the S of us that have lost so much in the horrible flooding.

Shawn my horse shoer comes tomorrow to trim Lilly's feet, so glad because she really needs it, won't be spending much time in the house this week, a skunk went under the house last night and must have gotten scared about something and let the good times fly, I have all the door and windows open, it is suppose to get to the mid 80* this week and cloud up on Sunday, I hope so that might give it enough time for the smell to disapate I hope, Jack was felling good this morning ar breakfast a chicken waled through and he got some air under those front feet and tried to head butt it, it was pretty funny, had a wonderful Memorial Day, went to the Mosier Memorial service at the cemetary then came home for and took a really long ride, the whole barnyard went everyone was tired when we got home. went to a really fun BBQ on Saturday at a house of one of my old Stable friends alot of the stable friends were there it was fun, have a wonderful week, love Suz and Lilly

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a Memorial Day vote for ya. Hope that you took time to bow your head and pray for those that gave their lives for us, and those that are still fighting for us! Great day today, temps were really hot, made it to 86 degrees, but we had our nice breeze. Good news, no great news, Ole'Blue was sold this morning! They loved it, her son and grandson were in awe of how good it drove and the power to the engine! Clutch passed all the tests he put it through! So it was a cash deal! Love cash, was a little scared driving home with that much on me, but only had to go less than 6 miles. To the bank in the am! Went to a BBQ for a while today. Made it a day of rest! Kids were out later this afternoon and yes, Bullseye got his bath! Let the body clipping begin! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Miracle's update:
Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge.
"Friends, it is with heavy heart that we bring you the news of Love's passing. Once we got her safe to our refuge, she started to seize. She had been carefully and thoughtfully examined by 2 vets, as well as monitored 24 hours a day by our staff. We agreed that she needed to be set free, as not to harm herself and to be allowed to pass with dignity. She was surrounded by people who cared, loved and honored her life. She went over the bridge under the warm sun, in the arms of those who saved her from abuse. She was not alone." Love and a vote.

How's your weekend going? Do you have tomorrow off? Glad you got in a good ride on Koot. I worked all 3 of my horses today. Rode BJ and ponyed Gracie off him. It was fun to work them both that way. Allie was standing at the fence looking left out, so I brought her in and did some groundwork with her. Hopped on bareback just to flex her head back and forth. Everybody was calm and happy so i wound up riding her around following my niece on her mare. It was just at a walk and just for a few minutes, but she was so good. I have a big stupid grin on my face now. If someone had told me my first ride on a 2 year old would be bareback, I would have called them crazy, lol.

Thinking Tx and Ok are trying to become the next Great Lakes states. Usually the creek doesn't stay flooded long, it's just a seasonal creek and dry most of the time. We got another 2 1/2", so of course it flooded again this AM, but is down now. That's 3x in 7 days! Nothing like all those poor people to N and S of us, horrible flooding and mandatory evacuations. Feel so sorry for them (and their animals).

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well another 42 degree morning and a high of about 68 with sunshine, so it felt really good in the afternoon. Woman I'm selling my English saddle too texted me this morning and now she'll be here Sunday morning instead. Just please show up and buy it! Got Indy lunged and lunged Paige and did a showmanship lesson with her. She was really on today! Then went to a friends for about an hour for a BBQ. Had to get home and let the horses out on this beautiful day, they are really loving their pasture time. Then weed whacked around the interior of the outdoor arena and mowed the perimeter and got the front lawn mowed. Will do the back yard tomorrow. Needed to come in and rest a little. Going down to low 40's again tonight, but they say tomorrow will be near 80 degrees, go figure! Bath time for Bullseye, dirty donkey! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Oh, how I wish I could send some of this rain to you! Thankfully, just a bit of drizzle this AM, and then a brief shower this afternoon and again right now. Hopefully, the worst of the rain will once again be the N and S of us.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. LOL Danya, every weekend is a long weekend for me! Well was 47 this morning with a high of 70 today. But tonight dropping down to about 38 they say! No riding time today. Had that complete physical to go for at the union medical center. Three hours driving time alone! Plus time there and then time waiting for a couple of scripts to be filled at the pharmacy killed most of the early afternoon. Got home like 2:30. Kendra that takes care of Bullseye when I'm showing came up for old nasty hay to cover their new lawn area. Spent time shooting the breeze. Then turned out the kids for over an hour on pasture, they're getting up there on more time out now. Then weed whacked all around the entire property and fence lines. Killed the day! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Koot time is good time!
Wish I could wave a magic wand and send you some (or all) of our rain. Usually this time of year we are really getting dry. Went grocery shopping yesterday and picked mostly emergency supplies, (bottled water, canned goods) just in case. Thankfully, just a bit of drizzle this AM, but chilly and of course, damp. Can't believe I'm wearing a jacket in the middle of the day and it's nearly June.

Happy you were able to get Koot out, sounds like you both had a great time! The farrier was out yesterday and the boys got theirs hooves done and they are all set. Last day of work, I will come back 5/30. Rain is in the forecast but hopefully I can capture a few rides, if not I will get ground work and grooming in there. I also will catch up on rest of the to-do list. I don’t go out of town or doing any other things for vacation as you already know-lol! . I have flown and traveled a many of place my whole life and now I choose to be with my life time love~HORSES! I’ve worked hard all my life to get to where I am now (of course I continue to dream of more with my horses) but my off time is dedicated to them and I’m very happy about that, it truly makes me happy ♡ Have a wonderful day and week ♡

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. I bet Koot loved the ride and then the play time! Well at least it stayed above 40 this morning, 43 is better than the 37 they were calling for. But it never even hit 60 today, and it was overcast! So another kinda chilly nasty day. But I did get both Indy Lunged and Paige ridden. Then they went out, with sheets on of course, gotta keep those show coats from blowing out! Then weed whacked two pastures and around the indoor. Then mowed those two smaller pastures and didn't have a jacket on, by the time I finished I had goosebumps going on! LOL! Sure hope spring returns soon! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Greetings from the swamp!
Wish I could send you some rain. Our weather sucks, Tx is floating away. Rain just won't quit, 1 1/2" this AM. Our bridge has been under flood waters 3 times in the last few weeks, in a bad year it floods once. We are just a swampy, muddy mess. Was able to get out today after the water went down and get in emergency supplies - that road is our only way out. 4" more predicted thru Monday.

every now and then, we have too much rain, but mostly, we always need it too, especially in the summer. the old folks say that since the 70's, it's been too dry around here to really make crops worth the risk. don't know what changed back then.
hope you have a good thur with some Koot time thrown in

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope that you got that ride in last night. Are you in the part of CA that is having some rain right now? Had the farrier this morning for new shoes on Paige and he check Indy's trim, Indy was done down at the show and he just wanted to touch him up, and for free! That was nice of him. Then I kinda hibernated in the house for a while, it was 51 this morning and a windchill of 43, never got above 55 with winds. So kids were in the indoor for work and then hay in the barn. I did mow another pasture and two more sides of the indoor arena. Buy then I had windburn on my face and said time to hit the house. I cleaned my English saddle up, as it's sold and leaving on Saturday! Yay! Going down to 37 tonight, winter's back! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

♡ I was able to get the boys out and brush and put their fly stuff on. They mowed our yard for us and it gave their hooves some relief from being wet. I had to have citronella candles going to keep mosquitoes at bay. Flies aren’t as bad as you would think but bad enough. Hugs & a vote for you!!!
