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 Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well for snowing for over 29 hours, thank goodness it was the light stuff and not coming down hard and fast! So our total was 7 inches! It stopped by noontime and of course the winds picked up then too! So the 24 F felt like 14 F and now the drifts are building up! Worked the snow blower first and got all down by the barn and indoor done, oops forgot to do a path past the gate to the manure pile! Oh well, that's what Thursday is for! LOL! Then maned the tractor and got 3/4 of the driveway done. Called it quits then, was frozen and cold! Got Honey and we went out to the barn and gave the kids lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey has a 15 X 25 puppy park in the back yard for potty time! Going down to the single digits tonight, oh joy! Might have to run the heat so those wall fins don't freeze up since the wind is blowing from that direction! Hope this stops soon and spring comes early! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! But lucky so far, since it started at 7 am this morning, and it's almost 12 hours, we've only got 2 inches so far! But they say the heavy snowfall will come overnight! New prediction is now 5 to 7 inches! Got the kids to the indoor and lunged Paige and did showmanship, then lunged Indy, and free lunged Bullseye. Got the wood burner going a few days now, feels great and I love the idea that I'm not using a ton of oil! Mo's up here in the house with us right now, but he's going back to the barn when I do pm feeding in a short while. He ran out when I went out with one of the kids and took off. Finally came back, but I was in the house and not going back out, so up the stairs he came and in the house! PS, got a text from Cheryl and Cisco, she'll be back on in a few days! YAY! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a productive running around errand day today! Started out at 09 degrees and got up to about 24 degrees. Sun was in and out, then out for the rest of the day! Went to town and got the newspapers for the doggie retreat and picked up a bunch of sale items at that store. Home and did a few things inside, like laundry, much needed! Then gave the kids lunch of fresh warm water and hay. Off to the chiropractor for my usual adjustment, much needed of course! Then Wally World for the really big grocery shopping! And it was a big one, hadn't shopped in three weeks due to the weather! All set now for a couple of weeks at least! Next it Tractor Supple and the Feed store for more of the kids food. Honey says I need my grain to mom! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well only 08 this morning and a high of 18 F this afternoon. But the sun was out nice and strong, so made it feel a tad bit warmer. Indoor was at 30 degrees, so it was work time for the kids! Paige got lunged and a showmanship workout. Indy got lunged. Bullseye got to run free. Then it was lunch of fresh warm water and hay for them. Then football for me! All I can say is, so far with the 4 games this weekend, only one of my favorites has won. Last game is on now and the Saints are taking a beating! Oh well! Glad I don't bet money on these things! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it was an interesting day for sure! Went from a high of 62 yesterday to waking up to 26 this morning with a skip of ice and sleet/snow combo out there. But the winds were horrible, steady at 18 mph with gusts to almost 40 they were saying, and it sure felt like it! Temps dropped more throughout the day too! So it was not an indoor arena day at all. I didn't want to chance walking them out the door and have one freak out and slip on the now ice covered mud! So lunch time fresh water and hay, and they were very happy. My hay man came with another delivery of 50 bales. Probably need another 100 in the hay barn to make it till second cut Timothy in June. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well we got rain rain and more rain! Like almost 2 inches so far, and with the melting snow, it's a flooding mess out there! Not fun at all! Needless to say, the kids did not get to the indoor today! Instead it was a complete spa day for them. Complete with shaving of the muzzles, bridle paths and fetlocks! They enjoyed it! Then lunch of hay and fresh water. Temps are still at 60 degrees, but by morning will be down to the low 30's! And the rain will turn to ice and sleet! Oh joy for sure! Got the YakTrax on my other boots all ready to go! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hope your weather does not turn that cold for you. Horses and animals seem to beable to adjust, (alot better than people), if give the chance.
It rained....yep from -20 to rain, all threw the night, nothing hard, just could hear it. snow was mussy this morning. Foggy, but not any snow until about 10, rain and snow mixed, schools were closed, but things did not get bad until afternoon, temps went from 33-30 to down around 7-8 just like that, winds really picked up. Tomorrow it is suppose to be down below zero.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Just to let ya know, I heard from Cheryl and Cisco and they are out of gigs on the internet, so she'll be back when it rolls over again. Well we got warmer today, high of 46, but with no sun it didn't feel that warm! But I got a lot done outside. 3 more bales of hay to the horse barn. Big tractor down and moved the manure pile back and then got into the indoor and dragged it really good. Horses all enjoyed their play time in the nice soft sand. Indy must have rolled half a dozen times! He loves to roll. Honey and I got in a mile walk too! Then later on, met up with someone who brought my winter riding On Course heavy English pants from back when. Another item sold that no longer fit me! Cash is good! LOL! Now for tomorrow and the heavy rains! YUK! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it made it up to about 38 today. Sun this morning and then about 2 pm the clouds moved on in! So not much melting happening then. But at least it beat having it at 15 degrees or less. Took more hay to the barn and then Lunged Paige and then Indy. Bullseye got turned out in the one pasture, do you think he'd roll and clean himself up a little? Heck no! Dirty little donkey! Brought him in and gave everyone fresh water and hay for lunch. Then I came up and had my Chicken Noodle Veggie soup that I made. Was it good, and best thing is, it's kinda really low calorie too! Need to shed that holiday binge eating! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Prayers for you and all those in California dealing with the fires and mudslides. Mother nature has certainly taken its toll on ya'll. I feel so sorry for all those affected.~~~~~

Today is nice but tomorrow night is will start turning cold again. We will need to put the blankets back on the horses. The freezing temps will be around the next four or five days. I worry about these quick changes in temperatures too. I have four cats that I kinda adopted...so I had to put in a kitty door so they could come in from out the cold. We had a stray mama cat that had three kittens in April. We have been feeding them ever since, so they just hung around here. The kitty door is in the wash room, so we keep them in there. I am getting the two males fixed on the 25th. Then next month the two females will be fixed. Don't want anymore kittens. Stay warm everyone! I can't wait till spring! lol

How close to you are those heavy rains and mudslides, California is getting a double whammy for sure.
Some place far to the south in Wisconsin are calling for rain, we just have a winter storm warnings, can get up to 10-12 inches or 1...big difference. Hope its done by Thursday, Mikey has heart specialist appointment in Minneapolis at Fairview, not sure to find out what they are doing or actually do something.
Today was warm but not like yesterday, I seen 28 around 1, when Mike got home from funeral, the VFW sends its members when it is a veteran's funeral. Cloudy most of the day. Cleaned out another rabbit cage, and somehow forgot to close the door correctly, so tomorrow I will have to catch him. He friendly, so will not take long.....I hope. Cleaned up in chicken coop and put down fresh bedding, have one of my rabbits loose with the chickens. If we have 2 more days of nice weather I will have all the rabbit cages cleaned out.

Hi & a vote,
Hope mudslides aren't too bad as may be in the forecast I see on the news. One problem to another out there!
We are at 35F right now! Light dusting of snow this a.m. Then warmer temps through the week will start melting our snow. I worry about the horses with these big swings back and forth in temperatures!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. For those that asked, no Mo will not be coming a house cat! Although Honey did look for him last night! He's a barn cat with a job in there. And cat's and people with asthma are not the best house mates! Well warmer today, high was like 26 I believe, but nasty damp raw out there! We did get a little sleet, snow mix this afternoon. Don't know how icy it is yet, as I still have to do pm feeding of the horses! But did get to town and got the papers for the rescue retreat and then did some grocery shopping for everything needed to make some homemade chicken noodle soup! Crock pot style of course! Didn't get them to indoor, like I said it was nasty raw out there and bone chilling! So did lunch of hay and warm water about 1:30 pm. And that's just when it started to sleet! So Honey and I hit the house after that and just relaxed! Tomorrow morn, Tuesday have an appointment for Beast to go and get the fuel filter and water separator changed in the diesel and new windshield wiper blades. That'll take up the morning. Hopefully then the sun will be out and it'll be mid 30's and I can work them out in the indoor then. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Just want to wish you all a Happy New Year! We are finally defrosting down here. Today we had rain...but it is much warmer now. I am praying for all of you that are experiencing those single digit temps and below. My herd is doing well. They have had their blankets on and staying warm in the barn. We were able to remove the blankets yesterday. Hope you all get some warm weather soon. Take care and enjoy your week.

Any chance of that elusive rain out there this week? There is a very slow moving front headed towards us, so if it doesn't fizzle away, we might get some today. It might be freezing rain though, which won't be fun. But we need it. It's been weird to be so cold and yet so dusty dry as well.
I rode Allie out in the pasture yesterday and she did well out there too. We loped a little and she was real good about letting me steer her (gotta dodge all the fire ant hills, which is a challenge). She seemed to understand the step around better yesterday after sleeping on it. We're still only doing one step and only to the left right now until she gets it pretty good, then I'll introduce going to the right and add more steps as she's ready. Might be turning into a handy little horse (except for her half-acre stop, lol). I was really happy with her. Trimmed her fronts afterward and it was dark by then.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. WOW started out at -04 with chill factor of -14! But mother sun was out and it warmed up to 15 F degrees and the wind died out! So I was out there on the tractor and cleared the rest of the drifts from the driveway and made my wall! Then I got Paige and Indy lunged in the indoor, it was 30 in there, nice actually! Bullseye got to free play in there. Then fresh warm water and hay for the kids. Honey was out a few times and ran the back yard where there aren't any drifts. And yes, Mo came up to the house last night! I actually carried him up from the barn when I finished chores. He spent some time with us and then I moved him to downstairs again. He has a little box down there and water. Although this morning he was drinking and picking at Honey's food in the kitchen again. She just looks at him and don't chase him at all, even when he eats her food. She's made such a huge turnaround in the last 15 months! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I threw my to-do list to the wind yesterday and trimmed BJ's hinds and then rode Allie in the riding ring, and she was really good. Did a lot of loping and she stayed calm and let me steer her. To settle her down afterward, I started working on stepping around with the front end (like the first step of a spin), and I got a good lateral step from her a few times. She might be finally growing up! Had a ton of fun.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well started out really cold and stayed that way all day! Winds were bad too! High got to a mere 9 degrees! Went to Home Depot and picked up the new heavy duty drinking hose for the barn, but will wait till after tomorrow to start to use it. Have to keep it in the house to unroll itself in the heat! Picked up a couple of things at Walmart too after that I needed! Home and gave the kids fresh warm water and hay and picked stalls. Going down to -05 tonight with wind chills as low as -20! So looks like Mo will be coming to the house again. Horses in two heavy blankets and hoods, doing fine. Barn was at 27 this morning with ice on their buckets. Gonna be worse tomorrow morn! But then breaking and going back to more seasonable temps starting Monday! YAY! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi how was the tax seminar. Well it was a day of being inside. Winds up to 50 mph. So I baked a pie and did laundry. City knocked on the door. One of my neighbors has frozen pipes. So they did a reading, told me to keep one of my cold water facets running. Told him no problem, I know the drill. Been here 25 years and this is about the 4th time. Better than frozen pipes. Put tape over the facet I am leaving on. That way I don't turn it off by accident. Same weather for tomorrow. Think I'll make mac and cheese. Lexie called said Jax is doing good. Nice and warm and calm. I thanked her for going above and beyond being a trainer. I really do appreciate her and Mike. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well that blizzard that hit the coast was about 5 inches for us, but south Jersey got hammered with up to 20 inches in some counties! Of course I have some bare spots from the wind and then the drifts that are just not fun! Went out about 11 am and started with the snow blower and did all down and around the barn and indoor and out to the manure pile. Then hit the tractor and did about the width of the blacktop and the truck is free to roll. Then used the snow blower and did the gravel side of the driveway. So all in all, about 2.5 hours of freezing my butt off in 09 degrees with the wind whipping! Looks like the rest of the driveway by the L/Q trailer and garage doors will be getting done on Sunday! Yes not Sat, as our high for tomorrow will be only 04 with wind chills of -20 degrees! This cowgirl isn't going out! Kevin just came and took the tractor home to do his driveway, he's gonna freeze, it's only 03 right now! Oh Mo's in the house downstairs in the Rec. Rm. Hopefully he'll stay there all night, there is a litter box for him. Barn will have a hard time staying at 30 tonight! Honey will go potty out the back, got the stairs all cleaned off for her. Here's to warmer weather next week! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Is this new tax law going to effect of returns for last year, 2017 or will it take effect for the 2018 year's income? Well this day just plan bit it! That snow storm is brutal out there! Snow blowing every which way and temps dropping like a lead balloon! Winds are steady at about 18 mph and gusting to 40 mph! Just flippin' unreal! Haven't had it like this in many a year! And tomorrow the high will be about 06 with chill factor of -15 at least they are saying, same for Sat too! Horses are antsy in the barn with the place being noisy from the wind and metal roof shaking! Just hoping that the inferred heater can stay going and keep it at least about 32 in there and the water hydrant stays working, heating tape on it however! God I wish this would go away! Poor Honey wants no part of it! Can't blame her at all! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hope the tax seminar goes well. I'm curious as to filling with the new laws that are in place. Not sure they will affect me as I am retired. We are having a heat wave. It's 20 right now. I can feel the snow moving in. So after it falls, back into the minuses. Woke to my furnace not turning off. My furnace guys came. Need a part but I have heat. So he will return later today. Glad I realized it wasn't turning off. Could have been bad with what's coming. Have a great weekend. Vicki & Big Jax

Glad the party went well and you also got some Koot time. Pretty good start to the new year.
And really, you might get some rain? Thats wonderful!
All that nasty weather stayed well to the east of us. I saw FB pics of my nephew's kids having a high old time playing in the snow amongst palmetto trees...There's something you don't see every day.
My very good friend came over and we stapled a plastic barrier around the pipes under the back porch. So sweet of her to help me with that dirty job. She made a yucky job fun. I also took advantage of the hard freeze to worm the horses. Everybody looks good, but Dee has dropped some weight and she is prone to worms. She also needs her teeth done, but that'll have to wait a few weeks. Otherwise, they're all fluffy and still acting stupid with their "frozen" brains, lol.

Enjoy your meetings tomorrow. I have not heard much about the fires, are they completely out now. I do not watch TV but listen to the radio most of the day.....well, it's on, but I usually forget to listen. Public radio.
We got up to 4 above today, but with wind chill was 20 below or better. It was -12 when I did chores with a strong wind, heard this morning was -35 wind chill. I will take -20 and no wind.
Tonight only down to -15, and a bit higher in the daytime, but by Thursday/Friday down to -20's again. Weekend looks promising.
Put in 2 more round bales today, and of course had a flat tire on tractor, lucky it was not the back tire, but front is bad enough.
Started cleaning a bit, getting a head start on spring cleaning from 10 yrs ago. Ha ha. Just sorting out books and magazines. I usually donate them to the 4-Her in horse class, because the leader is a friend of mine, but she resigned last summer. 40 some kids and oppose to be 4 groups, with leaders, but all the kids want to be in her group because she does so much stuff with them, and they all enjoy it so. I have a young friend and her son, who I "volunteered" to take them. :)

Hi & a vote,
My daughter and her boyfriend went to a friend's house for a small gathering on New Year's Eve. It was nice for those who don't have family near on the holiday. My son & his wife in Chicago went out to dinner and then just watched the fireworks from their apartment window. I'm still getting used to everyone being farther away from "home".

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well we had sunshine and it got up to 23/24 after starting out at about 04 at 6 am and 08 when I fed at 7:30 am. So took another load of 3 bales to the horse barn. And Honey got to run the back yard and down and around the barn. She had fun. And don't ya think, Mo scooted out of the horse barn! He was out about an hour and follow me back in when I finished lunging Paige. Then I lunged Indy. Bullseye got to go out in a pasture, he's got long thick hair, so he was fine! Went to bring him in and there goes Mo out again! So I watered, hayed and cleaned up, still no Mo! I was cold by then, so hit the nice hot shower and defrosted! Don't ya think, I now see him by the barn! I'm not going out, I get sick very easily from going out after a shower. So I just opened the kitchen door and called him, he actually came up to the house and ran up the stairs and inside, right down into the Rec Room. So now we'll see what happens in half an hour when I take Honey down there and get ready to go and feed the horses. She's never seen him in her house before! Hope the fur don't fly! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

A Vote for You!!
I think you are the only one on Horse Channel, that is at least happy with their weather. And you and Koot are not sharing. :)
Just read that about horse's brains freezing up, (from Allie's post yesterday) I think anything outside right now their brain would freeze up, along with their fingers, lips nose and toes, usually its just my fingers, my nose has a towel tied around my neck. Sadie was just a running and playing today, probably just to keep warm. Was -25 at 7, but did get up to 6 coming home from Ladysmith. Had to go in for a tetanus shot....I really really thought about giving myself a shot of the horse meds. Now I have 2 sore arms, (got flu shot too), plus a sore finger. Soaking it in Edson Salt & ht water.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Looks like everyone really had a great time at your NYE party for sure, saw all the FB pictures. But agree, let someone else do it next year. Being up that late and then cleaning up is no fun! Glad that you got in so much Koot time too over the long weekend! I bet he was very happy to have mommy with him! Well we got up to a whopping 22 degrees today! And with sun! Got the kids to the indoor for a little exercise. And tomorrow will be the same in the afternoon, like maybe 23 even, but a rough start of 02 they are saying! So I called an cancelled my asthma checkup so that I could stay home and get the kids out again before the next three days of snow and single digit daytime temps! So they'll be in again for a few days! Our street is pure white from all the road salt on it, it's like I know there's blacktop under there somewhere! Well almost time to go and feed! Hope Mo don't run out like he did last night. And he wouldn't come when called, so I opened the hay barn door about 4 inches for him. He bedded down in there over night thank God! He could have froze to death otherwise! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Sounds like the party was a success. Glad you got in some time with Koot. Very cold here, our feels like was 4 yesterday AM. Had to haul hot water out for everyone this afternoon and may have to in the morning, but will be in the 40's tomorrow so should have running water outside.

That sounds like a lot of fun. And a lot of work. Being the host and hostess does take a lot of work. I had my nephews for the day and night. We had a lot of fun. We ordered pizza and wings and then other goodies. They were two happy little boys lol Still very cold here. We actually hit 15 today. Tomorrow a little warmer. I think 20. I will go see my boy tomorrow. Want to take his blanket off and groom him. I also check for sore spots. My nephew was at the barn when they turned him out for a few minutes. We can't leave them out for long. Mark said he was a happy boy and was running and bucking. They say a couple more weeks are in the forecast. Remind me it I complain about the heat. lol have a great day. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a Happy New Year's vote for ya. From the FB pictures, looks like NYE party was a big hit! YAY! Well woke up to 01 with a windchill of -11 F degrees! So not nice out there! Honey stayed in the house and I went and fed alone, boy was Mo looking for her! It did get up to 14 degrees and sunny, so then I took Honey out around 1 pm with me to move more hay to the barn, going through extra trying to keep them warm! Even with the heater going, it was only 31 in there this morning! Then put Honey back in the house and lunged Paige and Indy in the indoor, temp in there was 28 degrees from the sun coming in through the eve lights! Wasn't that bad. Bullseye got to run free. Then fresh water, hay and picked stalls. After that I was a little on the frozen side! Getting ready to go feed shortly! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

-23 this morning. Only going up to 9. My nephews spend the night. Mom was working and will be tonight. Really hope my car starts tomorrow when I have to take them to school. Got and email from HC saying Jax got Top Horse because of visitors. So, thank you. He will be getting extra treats and hugs. Happy 1st day of the new year. Wishing you a year of health, love and happiness. Here's hoping all your dreams and goals come true. Vicki & Big Jax
