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.

Koot's birthday: April 10!

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

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Still on the tired side. But even in the mist/drizzle this morning, I got the trailer all unpacked and cleaned up. Moved it to it's parking spot. Then Lunged Indy, well free lunged him, he had some pent up energy and he ran it off on his own! LOL! Then today was to be Paige's first day of loping under control. We did our lungeing routine and at the end, I loped her each direction, 2 circles and then trot, then again loped. She was like, ah should I be loping mom! LOL! And I didn't drug her or use the lip chain, just her regular over the nose chain. She was good and was sound all the time. Honey then got to be turned loose in the indoor too, she has a ton of pent of energy to run off, can that little girl run! She was lungeing herself around me! Too funny! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hubby, Mike, has been working the gardens up for the past few weeks. Got the fence up and yesterday afternoon planted root crops, like potatoes, carrot,....4 packages, by order of the horses, beets, radishes, and about dozen small tomatoes. Good thing we covered them, because temps were 29 and frost everywhere this morning. Tried to load pictures of the turtles and there new home....they are not in it yet, well, at least not all day, because it is too cold yet. But pictures would not load, perhaps too big. I will work on it tonight.

Stopping by with a Monday morning vote! Well we got some unexpected rain early this morning:( we don't want the rain since we're building. Even though we already have our house up and we're working on the inside it's a pain to have to walk through the mud. I hope y'all have a great start to your week! Voted! ~Brooke and Copper~

congratulations on getting engaged! when's the wedding?
i wanted to set the record straight about the high profile news reports against Cypress Creek Equestrian Center, Darolyn Butler, and the horses that got flooded out during our bad rain. She's been around for many years, has 70 horses on 9 acres and uses some land around her for turn out. she's 66 yrs old and been a champion endurance rider. she cannot sell that land due to flooding. it's gotten worse as construction pops up all around her. she was wading/swimming into the rising waters, trying to round up her horses until the police forced her to stop. they made her sit, rest, and gave her coffee and donuts that they had because they thought she was going into shock. someone snapped a pic and posted it to FB saying, "she has coffee while others save her horses." she takes care of her horses. this comes from Dr Dutton, the vet that I've switched to. he was there for the rescue and also judges endurance races so he knows first hand the real story. she probably needs to begin downsizing but I think we all know that many people have too many horses on small acreages, myself included. I had 12 horses/ponies on this 4 acres and some probably wouldn't approve of that. all of us do it a bit differently.
buttercup checked out good and didn't need a hock injection. Princeton had a hoof abscess and has to stay out of mud for a week while the wrap protects it. so far so good.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Thank you all for the congrats on Paige's HOTM! What a great surprise! Show went well, weather was cold and rainy however! But Paige placed very well in her Halter classes, just behind three top heavy duty halter horse mares under all 4 judges! So if the biggies didn't show up, my little mare would have been tops! But she is in my book no matter what. Very tough Showmanship patterns, but we placed in 6 out of 8 of them under 4 judges. I personally got knocked down cause I can't run the extended trot! It's a reason it's called Select Showmanship (over 50)! Hello judges! LOL! Indy had fun, got lunged and loved on. And little miss Honey was a hit with everyone! She became buds with a Swiss Mountain Bernese that was three times her size! She handled the show scene and living in the LQ trailer very well! Now we're both off to catch up on much needed rest. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Trotting by with a vote and best wishes! Sounds like you're having really nice weather right now. It was sunny and warm here today, but I didn't ride. Oh well. Hopefully tomorrow!

Well, I don't think there is anything wrong with Cimarron. He had his teeth checked in October, I deworm him regularly (just gave him Ivermectin today), he's the boss hoss, and he's on pasture 24/7. Hopefully he's just a bit more sensitive now in his senior years and needs more feed during the winter months. He's always been an easy keeper, though; it's uncharacteristic for him to lose any weight.

Anyways, I hope you've had an excellent week and been able to spend some quality time with Koot!

I will post the pictures of the two turtles on Kisses page if I find some time today. The water in the pond was super cold for them, and a shaded area. Pen is about 5ft tall, 6 w/8-10 feet long. I did replant the iris, added Stella O Day, and threw in some flower seeds. It already had hosas, Snow on the Mt, and another small ground cover plant, now all we need is warm weather so they can stay out in their new home. Temps were barely 40 when I came in from feeding.
Pickles is really starting to get better, let me walk him all the way to the pasture today, even if everyone else had run ahead of him, near the gate, he started to get antsy, so I walked him the other way, and then back to the gate. He is still so fuzzy with baby fur.

I bet you are glad tax season is over, now you can concentrate on your home and wedding :) I hope everyone has a nice weekend filled with horsey time! We have had more rain so it is still to wet to ride around our property. The lakes will stay closed for a month or so, I can't haul out and ride that way. The horses have shed their hair so well. They are slick and oh so shiny!!! ♡

Glad things are coming along well with your wedding plans. Wow, only a month away? It's rolling up fast.
Yes, I've been riding Allie in a smooth snaffle. Rode her in just the halter yesterday and just another short ride of walking, circling, and stopping. I was scared to death and prayed like mad throughout, but she was calmer. She's pretty resistant to the halter too, her first reaction to pressure of any kind is to pull against it. I've done flexing and one rein stops till I'm blue in the face, but I'll keep doing them, dont know anything else thatll help. Still, I was pretty happy with our ride yesterday because she was more relaxed and confident.
Well, headed off to work.

Bo got her shot today, thank goodness. Had Cisco out in the yard this afternoon, was just getting ready to get him in (lots of thunder) when we got hit with a thunderstorm. Got soaked, had to chase him down, he was like "what's the big deal, it's just rain", then the hail started. Anyway, he'll be in the stall for night, hopefully can get him out tomorrow.

We did get the pond in, still have to move the cage over the top, but want to plant flowers and plants where the cage will go, but will have to steal violets, and day lilies from other areas because all I have in this area is Snow on the Mountain. Yes, we still have cold or cool weather mornings have been down to 28, but usually around 34. Spring will make it, I know, because my guinea hens have started laying.

Well, I rode Allie yesterday. We were both so tense we could hardly breathe, but we did it. I can see that the problem is going to be that if she spooks or gets fast, she's going to dump me cause she'll be afraid that I'm gonna get in her mouth. And I'm going to get in her mouth cause I'll be afraid she's gonna dump me. Gotta come up with a plan

Bet you are glad tax season is over, well, at least not so much work.
Was busy digging a hole to put in the plastic pond for the turtles, have to be near a plug in, so that means next to the house. Hubby, finished digging it this morning. Have a long cage big enough to walk in, to put over the top and still have about 5-6 feet so they can crawl out of the water. I sure hope my flowers and plants grow like I picture them in my mind. We had snow/sleet/rain from last evening to this morning. So spring must be hiding again.

Glad you got a long weekend and some time to unpack. Life is a bit of a whirlwind for you right now. Weddings are also a lot to plan, glad it's coming along well. Are you doing all the planning yourself?
Not much here. I took last week off work, primarily for some tests that were no fun (everything was ok) but enjoyed the rest of the week. Ran into a speed bump with Allie, so I'm kinda starting over slowly with her and she's doing ok. She's been the hardest horse I've ever started (not that I've started many), she's just hard to figure out and so strong-willed. I'm hoping to get back on her soon. And survive, lol. Thanks for asking about her.
Well, hope you have a great day today. Take care.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a very busy day with getting ready for the first show of the season. Got the trailer hooked up and all loaded up, except for some last minute stuff in the morning. Horses clipped, Lunged and turned out for an hour of pasture time too. Then weed whacked all around the place! I'm exhausted! Mo came home, finally after 5 days on the lamb! LOL! He was in the barn when I came back from Lungeing Paige. He was talking up a storm with me and was very happy to rub against my leg and be picked up and petted! He ate some of his food and then went outside and sat in the grass. Tonight he's on the MIA list again. But I know he's all right at least. Just not fond of Honey, that's all! LOL! I'll be back on line on HC on Sunday night. We show Friday and Saturday, I'll stay over night then and leave Sunday morning sometime for home. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hey, glad to see your back on HC! That's great that you got to take Koot on a ride over the weekend! I would have liked to have done the same, but the weather hasn't been all that great here. Oh well; maybe next weekend. Cimarron has mostly been doing well, but he seems to have dropped some weight, so I'm trying to give him extra senior feed and fatten him up right now. He thinks it's a good plan, lol. Otherwise, things are mostly normal here; life is more or less following its usual pattern.
Anyways, best wishes to you and yours!

Glad you got in some time with Koot. One forecast says rain, the other no rain. Guess I'll leave Cisco out tonight and hope. Went to the vet's today to pick up Pentosan since the Adequan is backordered, now the Pentosan is unavailable. She's going to order a compounded product that hopefully will help Bo - she's getting very sore without her "drugs". Saw the radar at 6, BIG storm headed our way, so put Cisco up in the stall for the night.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well, it was raining when I got up, knew it was going to. So this morning went up to Wally World and did a big grocery shopping for the horse show. I'll be making sausage, peppers and onions for dinner for 15 people, geezzz I can just about handle making food for myself! Wish me luck! LOL! Then lunged Paige, who is feeling her oats so to say! And when we were just about done, the lightning and thunder started. I knew that I might have a problem with Honey, so I got Paige back to the barn and on the wall. Up to the house, and sure enough, Honey was panicked! Shaking like heck and panting! Got her ThunderShirt right on her and laid on the floor with her. After it all stopped, I took her to the barn with me as I still had to lunge Indy. She was okay in the barn. After I finished Indy, I trimmed Bullseye's feet. Then Honey and I went back to the house, she was pretty calm then and it was just raining. So now I have to worry about being away from the house when a storm is approaching. Poor baby girl. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

More rain today, like 5th day in a row. The temps are cool too, so outside work is like the rain....hit and miss. Rest of the week should be cool without too much rain. Been planting tomatoes in paper cups, for the garden. I do have about 20 tomatoes plants up about 6-8 inches, but these were a different kind. As long as it is raining, we will go for feed today, if we can get the topper back on the truck.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well another busy one today, make hay while the sun shines! Since Tuesday we are in for thunderstorms and rain! Took Honey for a ride in the truck, she really likes to be with me. Went to the dollar store and then Tractor Supply for Paige's grain. On sale plus I had two $5 off coupons! WHOO HOO! Got home and lunged Paige and did some showmanship work. Then lunged Indy, his legs are staying normal now! WHOO HOO again! Then they got turned out, up to 65 minutes today. Then I mowed the lawn, it needed it again, that's last week and this week. Can't believe how it's growing. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Quick voting this morning before I do chores Can hear the birds singing outside, and little chicks starting to peep in the incubator. Going to start putting in the pond for the turtles today, needs electric for the filters so thinking next to the house or even in the day lillys over by the garage, even have the large cage to put over the top of everything, to keep them safe. Want to dig now while the ground is soft, since it has rained the last two days. Ponies seem to like to stay inside again, before they kept walking to the door like they wanted out, but that means more pen cleaning. Been trying to keep it clean, so all I had to do was put down lime, to kill anything in the soil, (it has dirt floor), then the sawdust, and straw, before Mistic has to use it for her baby. She other wise will be outside all day, and come in at night. So much for a quick vote, huh. :)
