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!

Still battling this cold. The worst of it is over. I didn't ride. It was late when Stephanie made it over. Almost dark. When Stephanie rode Sadie, I went inside, because I was too much of a distraction. Sadie behaves much better when she doesn't have an audience. She concentrates on what she's suppose to be doing. As soon I walked outside, she tried to come to me. Stephanie said she's a momma's girl. I say she's spoiled. Lol. Have a blessed weekend. Love hugs and a vote.

I'm working on walkover ground poles elevated on one end. gets them to use the back muscles for a good stretch. been muddy in the outside arena so trying to have fun in the small covered arena. I bought some solid tire tubes that don't need air. going to try them in the pony cart so I don't have anymore blow outs!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh that's good that even with the Christmas parties you'll make time for Koot. I know he'll appreciate that. Well it's dropping in temps now. Today was very overcast and some wind, only hit a high of 35 and chill factor of 27. Tonight going down to 20, guess winter is really on it's way now. Got another nice ride in on Paige today. Indy and I played, he's such a goof and a big puppy dog! Bullseye had to be chased by the lunge whip, he wouldn't leave my side either! Had to run to a couple of places, took Beast out again, that thing has guts! Had to pass someone poking along, geezz almost got whiplash! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Rain, rain, rain & mud. Imagine you are the same!
Disgusted with feed choices, local feed store never called me back, was cruising the feed bags at TSC and decided to go with Purina Enrich+, fed at the rate of .1# per 100#. Then had to get a kitchen scale so I can measure it. Will top off feed with timothy pellets, Meg may need some extra feed, can feel ribs and don't want her any thinner. Cisco and Nugget still on the porky side.

☆ As I have mentioned before, I have learned so much with Deacon and of course Whiskey & Rocket. Each horse has brought knowledge to me that has its own value. I think we all carry a special place for that 1st horse that is hard to describe ♥ the 1st year ½ I went trail riding, I experienced penning & cutting cows but my favorite has always been trail riding. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

Well, I've got a fun weekend planned despite the chilly weather! Some trail and road riding with a couple friends and coon hunting Saturday night! I decided to ride Clayboy this weekend; my cousin rode him bareback after not being ridden for about a year, and he was very hyper. So I think he should get ridden more. He was really good other than that. Hope y'all got some horsey time in!

Holidays are always great, even if I have to pretend. Kids seem to forget so fast of who is here and who's missing. But they all remember. We go out and have prizza on Dave's birthday, because that was his favorite food. Weather is starting to turn colder again, after a week of solid foggy.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well like you said, you really need the rain, so I guess you can't complain to much, but yes, I too feel sorry that Koot can't get out for exercise. So it's like 39 degrees when I got up at 6 am, then the sun came out beautiful, only for a few hours, but the temps went to a whopping 49 degrees! Then when I walked out of the indoor after riding Paige, it's lightly raining, they didn't call for that! But it was still holding at a warm temp, so who cared. Indy and I played ball today. He's just to cute, can't load the darn video cause HC video section is still not up and running! GGRRRRRRRRR! Played some more with the Lap Top, really trying to learn how Windows 8.1 totally works. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.

Well this week has been pretty interesting...learning some new things at work, won some concert tickets to Neal McCoy also at work. We get our Christmas bonus this week, yeah! Also this week when we got home from the pasture there were people on horses at our neighbors house. We went over to see and we knew them from when we kept our horses in the back of our subdivision. One of the horses was Ace's sire named Gunner. We were amazed at how much they looked alike. Gunner is still a stud and has the same disposition as Ace. Leaving a vote. Enjoy your week.

☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

Here's a vote from Buddy! I know I haven't been on again in a few days, but I went and brought Buddy home! We went to get him on Tuesday, and ended up quite a few hours behind schedule.. 8 hours behind actually. The roads were good when we left, and terrible on our way back. We were lucky we left Amberlea when we did, otherwise we would have been camping out at a rest stop somewhere. The only terribly bad part was when we were about 100 KM away from our destination. We had a semi truck driver flag us down to let us know that the road was pure ice, no matter how slow you went you were sliding towards the ditch. We stopped at the bottom of the little hill to see if the trucks in the ditch were okay and we were sliding towards them so they were telling us to just keep going and then call 911 when we got to cell service.

In addition to the roads being crap, I lost my engagment ring somewhere along the way! :( But, Buddy is here, and I am happy for that. He seems to be settled in at the new place and liking it. He's in one of the little barns with one other horse, so I've decided to keep him on indoor board.

My Scentsy business has started off to a good start, I've just got to keep at it and find some more customers other then my sister, and myself! So if any of you, or someone you know are in Canada and would like to order I'd be happy to help! :D In other news, Rob goes for an interview on Tuesday in Calgary, so he's flying there. Which means I get to spend the day with my sister and niece and some friends until he flies back and I pick him up!

The weather here has been pretty mild and I think it's supposed to stay that way for the remainder of the month. I hope it's been nice for everyone else as well! I've added pictures of Buddy in his new place as well!

Marion has been a huge support, when i feel like I'm loosing it, she picks me back up. I can't explain how this is a constant worry, I just want him well again. Marion also suggested that the stall kicking may be a symptom of the ulcers? could be...Love Donna Lee

(}—{) We ended up getting a light sprinkle Thursday evening. After I went to Tractor Supply & the grocery store Lizzy came over and we had a really nice ride on Rocket and Deacon. Whiskey is at the equine hospital staying a few days. He scratched his eye somehow. I really don’t know how or why he does that so much but the other 2 never do???? Any way Doc says he is doctoring it 2x’s a day with an antibiotic and giving banamine 1 time a day. Cliff may pick him up today or Monday. It is so hard putting meds in their eyes. I can do once its under control. I just can’t stand to touch his eye when it hurts so much. He took him in Thursday Morning so hopefully he can come home today. I miss him and so does Deacon and Rocket. Whinny’s, love, hugs and we left you a vote…..

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope that Koot's waterproof blanket did the trick today. Saw on both the news and read it on FB that parts of CA were floating away. Hope all is well and you and Koot are high and dry. Well it's a chilly one today, didn't get above about 32 and some winds. Got all my Christmas cards out and all but 5 mailed, ran out of stamps. Thought I had enough, tomorrow. Paige got lunged, that was about it. Then did some more winterizing in the barn, trying to close up all the drafts that I can, think I just about got them all now! LOL! Hayed and re-watered for lunch around 2 pm. Then brought in 5 boxes of firewood, good for a couple of days now. Then it was relax time for me with catching up on reading my last manual for Beast. Got a call, my real plates are in for it, I'll go Monday and get them or if it's nice take Beast and let them put them on for me. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Do you get much snow where you live?? I will have to look up where Thousand Oaks is located. My sister, Charleen, did live in El Sinador, if I spelled it correctly. But she passed away, 5 yrs ago on Dec. 15th. My youngest sister Stacy, who's birthday is on Christmas day, died on Dec. 6 and her funeral will be today. We are a big family and had to wait until my brother from Alaska could get here.
