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!"**

Koot's birthday: April 10!

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

Hi everyone, sorry I have not been on, as you all know Jack the goat had a relapse, today was going to be a difficult day, the vet is coming to the barn for everyone's wellness checks and shots, today I was gonna have to be judge and jury for Jack but I am happy to say he is back on his feet walking and foraging in a slow motion manner but that is okay,occasionally he stumbles and I have to go pick him up but strength will come with time, praise God he got a reprieve from the almighty Judge !! on the flip side, Lilly got a bath yesterday, so did I LOL, she gets her shots today and hopefully a clean bill of health, the gal that gave me a lesson on trailer loading said Lilly needs to see a chiropracter, she said it feels like there something off on the r
right side of her neck up by her poll, her daughter does this kind of work so I have a call into her to talk about it and schedule an appt. I am getting ready to take Lilly for a spin in the trailer this week yay, but here is a ? for Everyone, do you tie or not tie your horses in the trailer, the gal who gave me a lesson does not, alot of yes and no's on the internet, not sure what I am suppose to do, any suggestions ??? love you all, Lilly and Suzie

Come visit me, Lilly.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Monday off for me, and Indy, but Paige got to work on the lunge line to keep her moving and try and loosen up that neck of hers. Rain, rain and more of it. Just about an inch as of noontime today. I'm hoping that since tomorrow is day five, she'll be better. Last year it took five days for her and the three for Indy. She's just so sensitive to the shots. In the fall, she only gets the Rhino/Flu and that takes her three days to get over. So like Larry says, if we space them out, she'll be sore 3 days at least after each dose. So 5 days and be done with it. She lunges very willingly and does her showmanship work, she just can't do lateral and down motion of the head. But she's loving the extra hugs and kisses and treats! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yep, rain, hate but need it. Been seeing on the news how many Californians are losing their farms/ranches due to not being able to get water. So very, very sad. Especially when you have people complain that they can't water their lawns/flowers or wash their car very often. Priorities?

ALL IS WELL....
I had a great day yesterday, got lots done outside, the paddocks are all clean. All of the old hay from winter is cleaned up and taken away, no poop laying around. We are going to reseed the one paddock but i can't do that until it is a bit dryer and not as windy. I even had time for a short ride. Charlie seems to be adjusting to the change in weather well, and his new diet is a hit, he loves his bucket. They will both gets teeth and shots in the next few weeks and Charlies's shoes go back on, have a great day, Love and a vote Donna Lee

The new farrier came out Friday. Sadie's hooves look amazing. He said they look healthy. So thankful. I still haven't heard from the other farrier. I'm hoping nothing bad happened to him. Not like him to not show up or answer his phone or text messages. Love and a vote.

So sorry I missed Koot's BD. Happy belated! Bet you are glad the tax rush is over. Nice of them to give you the 16th off, paid, no less. Nothing new here, just enough rain to keep us muddy, but not enough to fill up the rivers, creeks and lakes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. I bet you are so happy that tax time is over! Nice that they give you the day after off. You need it! Saw that you and Koot and Tig had a wonderful like outing together. Well Paige and Indy both put in a good night! Thank goodness, cause I was on edge listening for any distress coming from the barn. Indy didn't need anymore Banamine today. Paige got another 5 cc at 1 pm and by 3 pm I was able to lunge her and do some showmanship. Of course now I have something new to worry about. She stepped on and it wedged in her shoe, a 2X3 in rock! I had to use a hammer to knock it out! Hopefully she won't bruise up and be sore! Like that poor girl! Depending on how things go Saturday, I might ride her. But for sure Indy and Paige are getting baths! Sunshine and supposed to be about 75! Yippy! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Sorry I missed the big day!!!

Sorry I haven't been on in a while. I have been dealing with lots of different things, with my Mom, my sister and my daughter. So much happening right now. The weather is terrible. Lots of rain everyday. Our pasture flooded on Tuesday, however the water has gone down now, but the rain has not stopped. Hope you have a great weekend, if possible.

happy belated birthday Koot! Deacon turned 14 on the 12th!!! I am rested after my short mini vacation! Yes I had much needed horse time. I did get to the lake and ride and of course I had spa time and riding time at home. Whiskey was my main horse over this time. I have to get him ready for the hot months of summer. He is always a good boy. I did ride Deacon some because I don’t want to stop riding him until hopefully end of June. Deacon's birthday was Sunday so they all enjoyed carrots and treats! He is in such good shape right now and Whiskey is too but I have to make sure. Turnout for them each day and put up for dinner and then back out for turnout in afternoon each day. When May gets here I can just leave out and not worry about the green growing grass! We did receive rain off and on in the last few days but nothing to interfere with my horsey time ♡ Have a wonderful hump day ♡

My apologies for not having been on HC much, taking care of Jack is exhausting, God Bless those who are care givers,took him to the Vet on Monday,our appt was at 10, saw the Dr. at 12, a dog had gotten hit by a car and broke both legs so they were working on the poor guy, God has taught me patience for sure, sat in the Horse trailer with him and just did nothing, how many times can a person just do nothing, it was actually okay, because I was sooooo tired, we are upping his vitamim B, and wormed him for Barber pole worms, if he can't stand up and motivate by the 21st then he wont be, that is when the vet comes out for my wellness spring visit, he did have alot more activity going on this morning with movements, she said he may jut have to manyholes in his brain to recover this time, that is what the disease does, makes holes in the brain, I have been riding just about every night to spend time with my girl and clear my mind, my body is done, Jack is well over 130 lbs and to flip him around several times a day and try and stand him up everyday is harder and harder, on Wens I have a friend coming over to teach me how to load Lilly, she is a Parrelli instructor, her specialty is trailer loading , I am so excited, I may even trailer over this weekend to some friends house and give it a test run if all goes well, sure need the break, love you all have a beautiful day Suz and Lilly

happy belated birthday koot!
Princeton's is walking with more weight on his leg now. wanted to trot off with godiva when I took him out of his stall to graze, so I had to hold him back. horses went for their chiropractor readjustment. buttercup cantered with my lesson rider without any sass or bucking! I think the adjustment really helped her. the western saddle I tried did not fit as good as I'd hoped so they ordered an extra wide for me to try. I will get it tomorrow. hope this one works!

Start spring clean up...
Good morning, it is suppose to be a nice day, I got most of the inside work done yesterday so I can "work/play" outside today, I hate the look of all the old hay laying around from over winter, I will start to pick away at cleaning up the paddock areas. I am going to toss out some grass seed too. The bird "flu" will most definitely affect my work, a lot of these birds that are being destroyed were scheduled for processing at our plant, so as the quarantines are added, until they are lifted we won't be processing, right now we are killing birds that are not under quarantine, this will be a lengthy process. I'm just hoping we have it contained. Have a great day, left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Happy Belated Birthday Koot....
It has been a very tough week, my heart aches for the loss of birds. I understand that this must be contained.We are following very strict biosecurity measures at the plant and of course the farms that are still operating. We process birds from all over Ontario. Several in our area are under quarantine, which can not be lifted until the farm tests negative for 21 consecutive days. So clearly this is going to have an impact on my work. We are still operating, but as the birds become less and less we will have some down days for sure. Several countries have ban import of Canadian poultry in the meantime. They believe this is a result of migrating wild bird and some how a barn became contaminated, however it spreads like wildfire. We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Well Zip finished his first week of school. He did great, so very proud of him. As a reward for his great first week, he got to be turned out today! He was happy! I think she plans to get on him next week, not sure, but I think so. My wrist is still really bothering me, so I plan on staying off everything and resting it this weekend. So, have a great weekend everyone, I will be back on Monday.

Rode Dash today. Loped the barrel pattern, he did really well! Then we trail rode for like an hour, I got a bad sunburn lol:) Dash was awesome, we incorporated lots of bending and rating exercises into our ride. I let him almost out into a dead run, he loved it! He's so fun to ride; he's not perfect, he tests me, makes me think and work. it's always the most challenging horses that have the most to give you anyways:)

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope you got to see Koot last night or tonight. Please Vote Indy daily for our next HOTM! Would really appreciate it very much. Thanks Danya! What a storm and heavy rains we got during the night! Thunder and Lightning too! But is cleared out by feeding time, just overcast all day long and damp! Only made it to 48 up here on the farm. Lunged Indy and did some showmanship with him to cool him down. Bullseye got to run in the indoor, today's his 15th Birthday! Then went over and Lunged Paige and did more showmanship with her. Tomorrow Marissa said she'll give me a lesson, she can stand there and bark out commands she said! LOL! She's still getting some headaches. Well hopefully the next few days they are calling for sunshine, so maybe we'll dry out and get some green growing in the pastures! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Isn't it something how fast they learn there's something in their food and won't eat it. Hope you get some Koot time tonight. And another drizzly day out there! Not really rain, but just heavy mist and drizzle, so it's not that bad on the moisture! Got Indy lunged again and Bullseye on free time in the indoor. Went over to Lunge and do the showmanship pattern that will be part of the Showmanship Challenge with total prizes of over $2500 to the top ten! Marissa was there, but confined to a chair and cleaning her tack! Said I guess this is as good it gets for a few more days. She got checked out yesterday by the doctor and due to being a horse trainer, can't ride until after the weekend. But she's in good spirits. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
