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.

Vote 18200 for ya!
Hi Koot & Danya, here's vote 18,200 for ya. That is awesome that Koot and Tig will be part of the formal engagement celebrations! Well did get a lot done today, not as much as I might normally, but still a lot! Got all around the outside of the property and the back side of the indoor weed whacked. Then had to run to town for something, so that was a welcome break. The came home and made some macaroni with sauce and was able to eat it, had to cut it up small. Then turned out the horses and mowed the lawn. What a work out that was for the poor lawn tractor. It was high, but not really to thick. Had to dump the rear baggers several times. But it looks nice again. Maybe I'll try a ride tomorrow, I know the jogging and long trotting will jar the mouth a little. Even though Paige is very smooth. So far the technicolor is staying inside the mouth! Thank goodness. Yep, think I'll be getting that Shingles show then! Thanks for the comebacks on it. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Good news? Bad news. Bo only has 2 molars, floating won't help, incisors look good, also has some rotation in L front. Ashley rec I put her on Thrive - she said even horses with no teeth do well on it. Jazz maybe has Cushings (oh joy), but other than that appears very healthy. Nugget was a B**** about getting her feet done, maybe because she's in heat. They all appear to be going out of heat, so hopefully can at last turn out together. I guess I need a challenge.

Not much riding time this week, seems like I am alway fixing or building pens and pastures. Traded two male guinea hens, for feed yesterday, hopefully, we both felt good about the trade. I try to trade when ever I can, because if I sell chicks, or keets, I use the money to buy more grain.....usually horses, eat oats, or cracked corn, is what chickens get too. They are free roaming, only locked up in the coops at night, for their own protection.

Dropping by with some votes this Thursday morning. I did a quick bareback ride yesterday afternoon. It was hot but the breeze really helped. Anyway,we jumped. He refused several times but I got him to go over it at least ten times. Only at a trot, a fast trot though. Then we cooled down on the trail. Hope all is good, have a blessed day!!!

Good morning everyone!
Thanks everyone for another surprise HOTD. Yes a lot of those horses used to be barrel racers and it surprised me also. They are very well trained. I can't wait to work with them and the riders more.

Well, here we are almost September. My HOTM run with cinnamon will be over soon. Hard to tell if she will get horse of the month. I don't think she quite got 300 or more votes yet. There are still a few more days though. Please keep voting and we hope everyone has a great day.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. WOW sorry about the high temps. We've settled down to high 70's with nights in the 50's! Great sleeping weather. Well feeling a little better today. All kinds of black and blue inside my mouth, jaw outside still normal color! Notice I said still, don't know if it will turn or not. Did manage to lunge Indy and then lunged Paige too. Went to the Lung Doctor and my asthma is doing fine, even though I couldn't do my inhaler this morning. But now he wants me to go for the Shingles Shot! Anybody know much about this shot and it's reactions??? Did get the kids out for pasture time late this afternoon, first grass in a week for them. Heads to the grass and never moved! LOL! Plans for Thursday include hopefully a ride on Paige and then mow the lawn that's about 8 inches high! Ought to be fun! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Galloping by with a hump day vote! I use a wet cloth on Katie's face for baths. I found a microfiber car washing mitt at the dollar store that works wonderfully for horse baths! She's not really that bad when I use the cloth she just moves her nose a little at first then glares at me the rest of the time haha

Sorry about Koot's little injury, hope it heals up good, Well, it's been a busy month, especially the last two weeks, I'm making a new little area for Lilly to hang out in right off the barnyard, a gate will allow access to it from her barnyard, then in the winter months I can close it off so she and the goat boys dont destroy it, it has alot of tree's around it so it will be great for protection from the hot summer sun, plus I've been doing art projects and home repairs and getting ready to take some stuff to my dads yard sale this Saturday oh and then we have a family weekend reunion the following week end, and I still need to have the sons and I cut up the winter wood !! been doing alot of walking and riding with Lilly and the goat boys follow, we might get rain this weekend ??? sure hope so Oregon and Washington are burning up, love Suz and Lilly

hi everyone!
Thanks for HOTD with my dream horse. Was a big surprise this morning. I know color is not everything and even though cinnamon and Eli are not really white I love them anyways. I know someday I will find a horse just for me that will help me to accomplish my dreams. Right now I wish cinnamon were that horse but she has done a great job of teaching me to ride.
Please keep voting cinnamon for HOTM. Thanks again everyone!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well nothing got done other than feeding today with the horses. Had that emergency dentist appointment at 11 am. I was right, nothing could be done to save the root, so it was oral surgery to extract it, 4 sutures later and some pain killers. Not to do nothing for 24 hours. So I went to Marissa's barn and played co-pilot on a road trip to have to horses vetted out. Since I had to either sit up or stand for the next 8 hours. That took care of 6 of them! LOL! Hopefully Wed before my asthma check up at the lung doctors I'll be able to lunge them or at least get them out for a while. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Much milder today, actually got some stuff done outside and didn't feel like needing a shower everytime I came in. New girls are out of heat, so will do some moving around in the AM before feeding so they can get acquainted over a common fence.

Happy Birthday Ginger (late)
AUGUST 23 1993~SEPTEMBER 10 2013

Yesterday my mom and I went out to Pine Hill to visit Ginger's grave. I still miss her so much it hurts. For a while if I just kept going out to the farm and left her stuff where it always was i could keep it from being real. I have accepted it now. Her bridle and halter are hanging in my bedroom, her locker at JoMar is cleaned out. I can look at her marker and really believe she's gone. It hurts to say goodbye. But you can't keep holding on to what's not there. We are going to pick out her permenant marker soon. I want it to be pink granite. On September 10th it will have been two years. It is time she had something more than a block of wood.

RIP beautiful angel Ginger

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well, last week started with the truck parking ticket and ended last Friday night with breaking the post and crown off my hook tooth! But the show went well, put national halter points on Paige again. And placed very well in my showmanship classes. On Sat morning, there were a total of 96 or 97 showmanship goes! So to add to the mayham of my week, Friday my last ride was about 8:30 pm. And Marissa still had one class to do with Paige. I told her, I'm going back to the trailer to feed Harley Dog and change so I can then bathe Paige for tomorrow morning. Get to the trailer open the door, and the place is covered in water! Bathroom had almost 2 inches on the floor. Seems someone,(me) left the kitchen sink on slow run to fill up the coffee mug and forgot to turn it off. It was a steady slow run of water for about 4 hours. Filled the holding tank and then came up thru the bathroom shower! I think it'll be okay. By 10 pm we were all sitting down to dinner, sausage pepper and onions on Italian bread. Third bite into mine, I felt it go, broke the crown off with the post on my canine bottom tooth that holds my partial in place. So there went the tooth and eating. Have an emergency run Tuesday at 11 am to the dentist, and of course no dental coverage. That was done when I just retired compliments of my union, at $1200 for the crown. Can't afford this, and I don't think they will be able to drill a new post, the root might be cracked! Oh well, have to wait and see. So that's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the Blondes.

Its been raining here for the last few days too. Not hard, just enough so if you are working outside, you will get wet if outside too long. Along with the rain, its been cold for summer, in the 50's and breeze too. Horses and steers love it, and the winds keep the bugs off them.

Galloping by with a vote! Friday we gave Katie a bath. She loved it until I washed her face haha I just told her tough and deal with it since she can't seem to stay out of the tarweed! The wind changed directions on Saturday and brought smoke from all the wildfires on the east side of Oregon and Washington over the mountains and into the Valley where I live. It's a minor annoyance, but I know it's worse where all the brave firefighters are working so I don't complain. Instead I put up a prayer for their safety and for some rain without thunderstorms. We went to the NW Art & Air Festival they had this weekend. We got to see lots of beautiful hot air balloons and a nice concert. Today we spent a lazy day sleeping in and school clothes shopping for my daughter (she starts school in 2 weeks).

Hi, new girls are settling in, both are so sweet. Had to remove them from the common fence yesterday, they were both in full heat and Cisco was willing to oblige, but didn't like him trying to come over the fence and them backing up and kicking at Nugget. Will try again Tues, I think they will be out of heat by then.

hi everyone!
last night Cinnamon wasmad that I was getting pictures of Eli and not her so she threw a big mouthful of food onto me... fun... at least it didn't get in my hair because I have really long and thick hair and that would not have been fun to pick out...
Today the plan is to clean Cinnamon's stall and get her out to ride for a while which will be nice because I'm in desperate need of horse time where I can get on her back and forget all my problemsand just focus on the ride. She needs a bath too but now the days are getting too cool to bath. On one of these warmer days I will get aorund to bathing her maybe. Hope you all are having a great weekend and I understand that weekends are time for family so I appreciate your weekend votes a lot. Only a few days left on my HOTM run and I don't know if I will have enogh votes but I hope so. My birthday is in September and I thought it would be kinda nice to have Cinnamon as HOTM since there's nothing Ireally want for my birthday. Thanks everyone!

Oh no, hope his leg isn't scraped up too bad and it heals up quick.
Finally had some help come over yesterday and we got about half the work done on putting up an above ground pool I had ordered for my daughter last summer. Whew, it was a long hot day out in the sun. I'll be glad when it's done.
Well, hope your weekend is going well. Take care.

Oh, does Cisco love Jazz & Bo. Both mares were in full heat this AM, displaying to Cisco, and he tried to come over the fence twice. He's not proud cut, but is willing to oblige. Got them up (took about 10 minutes to catch them), got fly stuff on, brushed them and fussed over them a bit, then put the calves in the center pen and the 2 mares in the far pen so they won't be on a common fence. They should be out of heat by Tuesday, will try again then.

hi everyone!
left votes for everyone.

Going to get another 100 bales of hay around 2:00.
Later I am going to update Cinnamon's picture to a newer picture. Now that she is getting more feed and has gained more weight since I first got her she looks much more healthy than she did.
at the fair with my photos and stuff I got two 1st place ribbons, four 2nd place ribbons and one photo that didn;t place at all. No matter it is still fun to enter stuff and the prize money goes to help pay for feed even though it is not much. Have a great weekend everyone!

I had a nice off day. It didn't turn out like I wanted it too but it was nice. The boys had their hooves trimmed and of course Deacon had new shoes put on. We had 2 1/2" of rain Thursday afternoon and it rained for about 30 minutes yesterday afternoon so my grass is happy again and the horses will have some fresh grass to graze ♡

Whisper was raised on the lawn, and sometimes Kisses gets to go out and eat too, as long as I am outside with her. I get more worried that the 4 steers will get out, they like to just run if they do, and its not like they don't have a 20 acre pasture to run in, but its they think they are free.
