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!

Have a wonderful day!
The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

STARTED STERL'S HAIRCUT....
Hi Dayna & Koot, We are happy to report Sterly looks good this morning, we left votes. I hate when she is off, she is so easy to read, so is Charlie. I realize that even a mild gas colic is upsetting to their systems and it takes a couple of days to get everything straightened back out. Because she is generally pretty healthy, just the usual "old age" stuff, I have always thought that if something takes her from me, it will likely be colic. So I have had a couple of real bad days too... We do what we can, nature takes care of the rest. Have a wonderful Easter, Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh that's good that he didn't limit riding. so that means it's very minor and just a good eye on it. Yay for the new Elite boots that you ordered. You'll love them! Today was their day off, everyone had a stiff neck, well except Bullseye the donkey. They are so hearty! Even with the bute last night for Indy and Paige, they were sore. Paige is the worst! She usually is, she'll still get bute tomorrow and that day off too. I did give each one time in the indoor to move around and run if they wanted to. Way to muddy to get to the pastures yet. Don't want anyone slipping and getting hurt! Didn't get near as warm as they said, only hit a high of 48 instead of 55! Once again, weather forecasters screw up! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

hey Koot!
Wow! Everyone got HOTD all at once! Thanks!
Had a great time yesterday do some more in-hand jumping with Tarnation. Today I worked some more with bathing Rocky, because he pretty dirty. Then I went to let him graze and he bucked as we were walking just out of pure energy. So I put him in the round pen and he ran and ran. I couldn't get him to slow down. After awhile I caught him and rode him a bit. Then were roping cows in the biggest arena and he was very interested so we went over and checked it out. Then turned him and Tarnation out. So it was a really good day.

HAPPY EASTER
Good Morning all, thanks so much for the birthday greetings for Sterly & Charlie Bubbles. It has been a busy week. Trevor is still off visiting in the city, he is missed here, our cats just love him and we have actually gotten used to having him around. It is good news that he feels well enough to be out and about. The weather is slowly turning around here, but still lots of mud, Sterly has had a couple days of mild gas colic, due to the change in weather, warm days, cold nights, but is looks this morning like she is feeling a bit better, thank goodness Charlie keeps her moving when they are outside. I had my one year review on my shoulder with Dr. LeBel, she is ever so happy, me too, however because of the little accident at work a couple of weeks ago, she is keeping my file open for another month, just in case. Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter, sending love and votes, Love Donna Lee

Happy Friday Koot! I hear you got the day off yesterday - hope it was fun. And you are getting some new boots just in time for Easter! How great is that?
Yep, they are just like kids - just a little more expensive but worth every penny.
Yeah Butter likes to be right there breathing on my head. lol. Maybe I should change shampoo! He did better last night and got some extra carrots for his effort. Will keep working at it. Supposed to be a lovely weekend so hoping for some trial rides.
Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter weekend.

I know your Mom loves that you stay in touch with her.
Yesterday was cool and sunny, so we hauled to the trails and had a great ride. Rode through a couple of grassy spots and let the horses graze for a bit (trying to keep them happy about hitting the trails). So much fun. Today...back to work for my long day. Ugh. Take care.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh that's great that you learned those stretches. Are you going to be able to work Koot and show him with the ligement a little puffy? Did the vet say anything about polo wraps or SMB boots for riding? It sure was great to walk in the barn this morning and see Paiges' lovely face. Of course now after getting all her spring shots, she looks rather pathetic! Poor baby, Indy's a little sore, and nothing bothers Bullseye, donkeys are very hearty! I did have a nice workout and ride on Paige. We did a lot of horsemanship work. Then to cool down I did 15 minutes of showmanship. All in all, a great day. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: “The great Easter truth is not that we are to live newly after death – that is not the great thing – but that...we are to, and may, live nobly now because we are to live forever.” (Phillips Brooks)


Q: Why are people always tired in April?
A: Because they just finished a March!




HI. Here is a vote from Fancy and herd.
Fancy had her spring pedicure this morning before her breakfast. She was a good girl for the farrier. He finished in only a few minutes, and we were on our way home.
Fatima and Trigger ate breakfast while Fancy was away.
The last thing the man told me as I pulled out of his drive with Fatima in tow, "she will not tie, you can't tie her!"
Sooo, today, after some ground work, I tied Fatima. You can see her standing nice and calmly in her profile photo:)

Happy EASTER, for our SAVIOR has risen ♥

Morning Koot and Danya, Lilly got the day off yesterday to, we've riden everyday since Sunday, so we just went for a walk so happy Koot is feeling better, 6 months will fly by so hopefully he will stay straight and healthy ,After I got Lilly home last April 15 yaa she has lived with me for a year!I've had her for to but not at home, Best thing that ever happened I had a massage therapist work her over becasue she had gotten kicked by one of the horses at the stable in the hind quarter which tore one of her muscles that runs down her back leg, and she wouldn't let me clean out her hoof because it hurt to pickup her leg, Lilly was like pudding during and after the massage, it was funny watching her. This seemed to help I should just for the heck of it have the gal come back, Lilly seemed to love it. take care, glad you had a great day off yesterday, Lilly and Suz

I love my week days off too (Fri. & Tues.)!!!!
Today Whiskey is bowing on the 1 year anniversary of the West explosion. God bless our beautiful town our motto is “After West, forever forward”. God bless our town and God bless America! I continued to work with him and every now and then I still put the O ring on him and to keep him sharp. I am not all that good with all kinds of bits. I have not mastered the bit world-well, probably not a lot of horse things but I am on my journey and heading that way. I can ride Whiskey & Deacon both with just halters on but have never tired bridle-less yet. Another goal of mine after I finish getting my round pen larger and have a set up where it will work for us. Whiskey & I continued to push forward and of course everyday he got better and better. We were learning each other and I loved every minute of it. Phone votes tomorrow, I will get back to our story on Saturday. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

The 1st few times I rode Whiskey my arms were wore out and tired. I was thinking “man what in the world”. He did not and could not Neck rein. He was very hard in the mouth, no flex in his neck but Karla & Tim told me he needed that kind of work. Tim felt he didn’t ride him in collection and so on. He was Tim’s first horse. We would get under the canopy of the trees on the trails and he would do great with my seat aids which I was happy about. That is how I ride him, with my seat and leg aids. I guess we all are supposed to do that RIGHT!!!! I then started planning my next few months of teaching him to neck rein. I just went back to the beginning and put him in an “O” ring snaffle and took it from there. Every day his personality would shine and he entertained Cliff & me with his antics! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Here is a good night vote.
My oldest son is riding Fancy in our profile photo. Cowboy and his oldest brother rode in the local Easter parade this weekend.
I have worked with Fatima bridling and listening to the bit from the ground. She does not act like she knows much. But that little Trigger acted kind of like that when we got him. But it did not take long before Trigger was doing very well.
It has been a very busy week. I might not be online again tomorrow because it is the day of my aunt's funeral.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Learn those stretchs, I have some to do with Paige, her neck and poll are problematic thanks to the previous trainer. So Dr. Edwards has me do lateral to the shoulder twice a week with her, and it's really worked great! Well so much for the nice warm temps. Started at 60 today and it's been dropping like a lead balloon! Going down to 25 degrees overnight, with the rain changing to possible snow! WTH! Went over and got my last riding lesson of the month as I'll be picking Paige up tomorrow to come home! I can't wait to have her home. Had a really good horsemanship lesson today. Tomorrow we'll do showmanship lesson before packing up to come home. Rained really hard all day, almost 3 inches, have a little water in the one corner of the indoor where it always has a little problem. But I don't feel bad, Marissa's indoor was taking on water too! Heavy, heavy rains! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Finally that Saturday morning rolled around. I could hardly sleep the night before. Everything was running threw my head about what I was going need and about if I had everything ready for his arrival to our place. I kept thinking about how alpha Deacon was and how they would get along. After all they have road a thousand miles of trails together. . The more I thought, the more I felt like after the ride we would come on home instead of camping. I wanted to get him home and on our property to make this dream come true for me. I had never rode Whiskey until the day I bought him, can you believe that!!! It did not matter to me how he rode at all, I wanted him and that was that! We had a nice ride that day and came on home. Cliff broke out his tools and started working around the barn. Today’s picture is of Whiskey’s first comedy show for us. He said (ha ha) “Dad, I can bring this orange Home Depot bucket to ya, I know it has feed in it for me!” Enjoy! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!
