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!

I survived another long work weekend. A lot of customers with bad attitudes, and several servers were in tears from the stress. Not suppose to be that way. Still haven't finished the shed. Needs caulking and the shingles put on. Getting there. Got a doghouse to build, too. Sadie's good. Dewormed her this evening. Got to call the farrier. Have an amazing day, Tuesday. Hugs and a vote.

Glad you time in with Koot over the weekend. Tax season will be over soon. Meg was good, as always. Cisco's turn today, wasn't sure how he'd be but he was totally calm with groundwork so had a short ride - he was so good. Will ride again tomorrow if the rain holds off.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Glad you were able to get in some Koot time over the weekend. Well today's my Monday, day off too from doing a lot. Plus I was tired yet after all I did on Sunday. Well if anyone saw my FB post this morning, yes we woke up to an inch of snow on the ground! The winter that just won't quite! It just keeps giving and giving and giving! And guess what, woke up and my back was better, maybe stretching to clean the truck and dry it off helped, who knows. But got good news, I can start to ride, only at the walk for the first couple of days and only for 15 minutes to start out. See how the back is feeling and responding to riding. Still no heavy lifting, so putting that 40LB western saddle up there is up to Marissa. LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I use "horseshoers secret conditioner" on their hoofs. You mop it on the top part of the hoof by the hair line. I also feed "Purina Strategy" which makes a big difference in their hoofs as well "omega Horseshine in the winter". Rocket and WHiskey stay barefoot, that is all they know other then WHiskey having wedge shoes because of his slight founder issue last year. This is the time of year I ride Deacon often and sometimes we end up on some pretty tough ground or rocky ground. I guess if you are riding streets and arena work and shows you would want to shoe in that season. I hope that answered your question! LOL

♥ we ended up with visitors Friday. My grandson Jason and our nephew Little Ron stayed the night. We had fun. I gave the horses a spa day and had a wonderful ride on Deacon. All the farm land was dry enough for me to ride a long while. I also rode Whiskey Sunday. It was SOOOO windy. He doesn’t spook and it seems nothing bothers this horse “) No way Deacon could of took it, he’s the one who see’s monsters in the high winds. Have a great day!!!

Come visit me, Whiskey & Deacon.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it was so cold and windy today. I really think that Spring has been renamed, extended Winter, to come for the month of May! Went over by Paige, got another showmanship workout. This time fine tuning our square turns and pivots. With added changes in my position now of handling and setting her up. What a difference in how Paige responded to the ques. Got home and was going to take a walk down to that woman's house to see if they found the beagle, but the winds had the temps down to 22 degrees and it was just to cold for my ole'bones. Hopefully tomorrow we'll start a warming trend again! But going down to 14 degrees tonight! More wood in the stove please! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Are you seeing a light at the end of the tunnel for tax season? Sometimes the end is the busiest part though. Hope you get some Koot time this weekend. Our weather has turned off chilly, lows around freezing. Winter's last hurrah. I'm hoping to visit with a friend who is showing at the big local arena today. Its always fun to see her. We work at the same hospital, but its usually too busy to leave the floor to go visiting, so we almost never see each other. She shows in reining and working cow horse with her little red mare, and her hubby shows a great big grey QH gelding as well as ropes off him. They have a lot of fun together.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Sure hope that you do get some riding in over the weekend. Enjoy my friend. Well, that rain last night, turned to snow! Nothing really to speak of here, but just 20 miles from me it was a few inches deep! Has anyone seen Spring? If so, give it our zip code please! LOL! Got over to see Paige and had a showmanship lesson again. Since I can't ride yet, Marissa is really drilling us, only today might have been to long. I felt it a little after the 40 minute workout! Got home and went for a walk, I know walking is really good for the back. Well the one mile I had planned on, turned into close to 2 miles. I meet a neighbor who's year old beagle ran off, slipped it's harness. Spent over 90 minutes walking the road and then the woods by her house looking for Olivia. Didn't find her. Hope she comes home for super! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The vet came out on Tuesday, had all the coggins done, checked their teeth and cleaned sheaths. Poor Ace the drugs really took effect on him. He was so drowsy, it took him a good while to wake up. Susie looked worried about him. The herd is doing well. Had rain yesterday so its wet once again. Enjoy your weekend. Left a vote.

Deacon got his new shoes yesterday and Rocket and Whiskey had their trims done! I will keep Deacon that way through around July then he will go barefoot the rest of the year. We worked on the stretches again. They seem to respond well and it makes me feel good that I can help them gain muscle and feel better. Whinny’s, hugs and a vote ☆

glad you got Koot out for a romp. he looks like he really enjoys his runs, lots of good photo ops. my horses only kick up their heels when I leave my phone inside. in fact, some were up in the yard for a special graze time, and they were running around, tearing up the yard and playing around the cars, so I took my phone out set on camera mode, and sure enough, they settled down and went back to grazing. went inside, and the same thing happened again. this time, I took my phone out only to settle them down, and low and behold, it worked again.

Here's a vote from Buddy! It's been a long time since we've been on to blog, I've signed on now and then so my points don't go away, but haven't had time to do much of anything else. So here's a update on us!

Things didn't work out with the move to Grande Cache work/money wise for my fiancé & I, so we moved back to my home town of Grande Prairie, but of course that was after we put ourselves in major debt :( We're living with Robs brother currently, and trying to get back on track. Rob got a job doing the same as he was in Edmonton, and got his class 1 license last week, so now he can drive a big truck of his own and make more $$! I babysit my niece for my sister 5 nights a week, and still sell Scentsy. I'm looking for another job during the day, but haven't had much luck with it yet.

Buddy is still in Grande Cache, hopefully just until the end of this month. I have a place to keep him here just outside of town, I've just got to pay the Grande Cache people up in full before I can move him. I also have to find a trailer to rent and Rob & I both need the day off, as I won't be able to make the trip to GC and then back to GP before I have to babysit. There's lots I need/want to do when I finally have my boy back with me. I of course, want to make sure he settles in to the new place well, and spend some time with him since I haven't seen him this year yet (I feel terrible for this,) plus the owners of the new place want me to get him a vet check when he gets here.

I hope everyone has been well and enjoying horsey time! Hope spring has sprung for you all!

-Buddy & Jasmine

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. LOL, yep the 40's feel like a heat wave to all of us! Glad that you got a ride in last night. Monday I have the chiro again for my back, I'll see when he's going to release me to ride and lift more weight. Well day started off on the bad foot! Cat (Mo) got out of the barn this morning, which in it's self is okay, he roams the place in the summer. But the fact that he caught and ate one of my Morning Doves who nest every year on top of my A/C unit to the bedroom, really ticked me off. I don't know if he killed momma or dad! He's lucky he's not dead himself! On a brighter note, went over to do another Showmanship lesson with Paige. She was really, really good for me. But did eat off her bell boots, Marissa left them on this morning after riding her and the let her loose in the stall! Yummy she said! Indy and Bullseye got turnout time in the indoor. Rains started around 3 pm and tomorrow will be heavier with thunder storms, but however going up to about 53 degrees. Lots more snow melted off today! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. That is so good that they get along together. Yep, I bet the Aussie in Tig wants to really get into doing his job and rounding him up! LOL! Hope you got that ride in tonight. Another day of 18 degrees, but it did make it to 43 today with strong sunshine. It actually felt nice out there. And tomorrow the high 40's but overcast and possible rain. Got over to see Paige today. I actually did about 15 minutes of showmanship lesson with her. Then Marissa rode her, she was good. Got home and walked 1/2 mile again to help strengthen the back muscles. Still taking my Traumeel and I did rub the ointment on tonight. Kevin came over and took another 6 bales of hay to the barn for me. Bless his sweet soul. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Saw the picture of FB of Tig laying outside the arena watching Koot play. Glad that you got to have some time with both the furry men in your life! LOL! Lazy Monday today! Are you ready for this, I woke up tired! LOL! Did go down and take Indy out to the indoor, but the temps were cold! It was only 16 when I got up to feed and the high was 30 degrees with windy winds! So not much melted off today! Did go for another walk, just all the way down back of my farm and around and up the side along the indoor. Just picking up some of the neighbors trash that blew into my hay field and along the indoor. Tomorrow I'll be going over to see Paige, hopefully I'll be doing some of the grooming on her. The Traumeel pills are working as good as or better than the Aleve and no heartburn from them. Didn't use the ointment today either, trying to see how it's doing without all the stuff. Seems to be getting there. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

how're things going? we had a good trip to Charleston, but im glad to be home. my niece rode Allie yesterday, I mean actually walk, trot, lope. just on the lunge line and just one circle at a time before stopping and changing direction. but she did well, didn't buck at all. she's still too small for serious riding, so I wont do much with her until she's 3, but at least I know she'll be a good girl when the time comes.
well, it's a drizzly sunday, so not much going on. hope you're having a good weekend.

✞ Enjoyed my feeding time with the herd after work. We have the gates closed to the turnouts so the grass can grow good plus it’s that time of the year to be careful they don’t eat too much of this fresh grass to founder. Each day they were worked up to about an hour until 2 days ago so I think I will put them back to 30 minutes a day for a few before getting them back to an hour. Happy trails and Have a wonderful day ♡

What can I say, my work is wet and dirty....
Good Morning my friends, feeling better today, most of the swelling is down, I can see again. For some of our jobs safety glasses are required, however, I wear glasses anyway. This was just a freak accident, believe me this does not happen often, in 14 years it has never happened to me. We had trouble with this flock of birds, they were not taken off feed early enough, it was just a bad day. Yesterday was such a mixed bag, wind, rain, snow, ice pellets then believe it or not, SUN. I am soooo ready for some nice dry weather. Have a great day. we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's vote #17,300 for ya. Well happy to report that we only got 3 inches of snow on the first day of Spring! And today it was overcast, but did hit 46 degrees, so just about all the snow has melted off! I had no intentions of moving it, Nature put it there, Nature was going to take it away. Back is a little better again, I even kinda was able to roll onto my side last night to sleep. Did finally have the strength and Indy did really lower his head for me on command to get his two heavy blankets off, gave him a good currying! He's even got a short fine hair blowout going on! And later on I walked 1/2 mile to build up my back! So it was a good day. Marissa said Paige is well and misses her mommy! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI, left a vote. My mom had to put her kitty down this morning. She called me just sobbing. Her Toby kitty was 5 years old, had a blood clot burst over his spine, there was nothing they could do for him.

One of my friends just lost their 8 day old colt. They fought so hard for him, thought he was going to make it, then he went down hill fast. Not sure yet, what was wrong with him.

This weekend isn't starting out very well at all.

Hello from Swamp Thing(s). Horses didn't want to come up to eat this AM. Finally went out about 9:30 (in the rain) rattled feed buckets, blew the whistle, and was just getting ready to trudge out in the pasture to give Nugget her carrot (with her pill in it) when they decided to come up. DID NOT want to wade thru all that mud and maybe get stuck.
