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!

HI Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. I bet you are busy now with the Tax season! Glad that you were able to get out and at least spend a little time loving on Koot over the weekend. Woke up to a new layer of snow on the ground, but it melted off with the sun and 36 degree day. But starting tonight, the temps are really dropping! Well Paige decided that today was going to be a MARE day! No I don't want to and go and try to make me! After being like the super show mare yesterday, today was the "B" of the moodiness! When I left, she was still tacked up and on the wall to think about life. Marissa said after her 4 pm lesson was over, Paige was coming back out for a second try at being good! Have no idea how it went, haven't heard from her. LOL! Got Indy lunged this morning and Bullseye free lunged. Tomorrow the Beast (truck) goes for it's first oil & filter servicing. Just turned 7100 miles and the notification came up yesterday on the display board. Gotta love when the truck knows when it's due! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Stopping by with a spring like Wednesday afternoon vote! The farrier came out today a new one since our old one never got back with us. Copper did great! He usually acts up once or so each visit but for the past few he has been doing great! We are gonna haul him and Darby out to our land tomorrow and ride them for a few hours. Seventeen and a half acres to ride all over! I can't wait! I practiced loading him in the trailer this afternoon he finally went in after about ten minutes or so. He's pretty hard headed but I'm more! LOL! Really proud of my boy. Then Darby and him got grazed for half an hour and then they were groomed. Love and a vote! ~Brooke and Copper~

Ash Wednesday, so this is the start of the Easter and Spring Season. Have to run 33 miles one way to the library to find ta papers for my Grandson tax work. I am cheaper than H&R Block, and he does not have much income. Clod and windy today. -10 sharp winds this morning, so will leave the little ones in for a bit.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. What a great time at the Awards Banquet Sunday afternoon. Made out like a bandit! If you're on FB with me, you'll see our pictures and my big smiley face! I do plan on taking a pciture of the surprise Trophy we won, it was for the "Vern Packard Memorial" high point speed event horse! And since we did the Barrels and Poles just for fun, and PS only loped them, we still came in high point! My belt buckle is just gorgeous! Marissa got for the classes that she rode Paige to her championships in, a heavy winter blanket, full rain sheet and stall front bag. I took the cash on the rest of my Championships and class placings, did very well $$$! And the best part was, the former trainer (killer) had to sit there and listen to all our accomplishments! LOL! Loved it! Now to set my goals for this season! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Well, yesterday, we got a "peek" at spring, and then over night Mother Nature just covered it all up with 3-4 inches of snow and drifting too. For some reason, Mother Nature seems to like to torment us, but at least it's not muddy out yet. Temps this week, are going to be low, with highs just over 0.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya . What a busy day today! Got Indy free lunged and played with him. Then free lunged Bullseye, I really have to take a video of him lungeing, he stays right around me in a circle, like in an invisible round pen! LOL! Then went over to Marissa's. Got Paige groomed and saddled up and went and lunged her. Marissa came back from another horse and bridled Paige up. I couldn't believe how awesome Paige was today! Like she never left her training mode! Marissa even did the baby cross rail jump with her, just to give Paige something else new to do. Did lot's of little things with her and really mixed up all the work. Got off and told her whoa, walked over about 6 feet from me and said, Paige come, mare does a 90 degree turn and starts to slowly walk over, you can see she's thinking, who too? Marissa says you better come to the right person! And she went right to Marissa! Got lots of pats on the neck. After cooling down on the wall, she got a scoop of her Alfa-Lox and a flake of her 50/50 alfalfa hay. She was a really good girl. Tomorrow I'll be leaving the farm my 1 pm for our Awards Banquet Dinner, I can't wait. Be home just in time to feed by 7 pm. Like the idea of the afternoon Banquet better. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I had a nice day off. It was sunny but the wind chill was cold. The boys just grazed all day while I did a few chores and even took a 15 minute nap! In the afternoon I actually saw geese flying back north, I guess we are having a early spring. I thought all my HC friends up north would find that to be uplifting news!!! I will try and ride Tuesday when I'm off and if not I am off Friday and Saturday and it will be in the 70's again. I can't hardy wait ♡

Just trying to get a few more votes in this morning. Nice outside this morning, I think it was 17 when I did chores, up to 23 now. Light snow, a inch or so, each night, but its not enough to cover up my trail across the lawn to the barn/shed. I wish I had a real barn, but the Menard shed is divided into a shop, and back part I have hay, a tack room, feed room, which is now filled with "stuff". Pen for the babies, Pickles and Paisley, plus a pen for the noisey guineas hens. Hope your weekend is great.

Buddy Guy here I come...
So after weeks of scouring the Buddy Guy website and checking the Canadian appearances, remember I was hoping he would add London. He didn't, but one day about a week ago I saw a small blurb that said Buddy Guy in Kitchener Ontario, I thought it must have been a previous show, but I checked it out and sure enough he is only playing two Canadian stops on this tour, Toronto and Kitchener. Kitchener is pretty close to us, but when I went to the Box Office there were only "nose bleed" seats left. I was so upset that this show was not on the Official buddy Guy website and all the great seats were sold already. Remember no one has worse luck than me...Then I saw an ad for two front row seats for re sale. David warned me that ticket fraud is a big deal, so be very careful. Long story short, turns out the man that purchased these tickets is also a huge fan, however, he has a vacation conflict for the day of the show, he wasn't sure they would be back in time so he decided to sell the tickets. He wanted the same as he paid, not looking to make a profit. I contacted the Box Office to verify that these were in fact legitimate seats and after they confirmed it, I said SOLD. April 20, Centre in the Square Kitchener Ontario. early retirement present for me. I posted a pic of the theatre, and the two yellow dots are our seats. I'm so excited. Have a great weekend. Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. WOW did the rains hit us hard today! Almost 2 inches! Glad it was rain, that would have been 2 feet of snow! Temp was 51 degrees up here on the mountain and 54 over by Marissa's. Indy got lunged, we got soaked just walking to and from the barn to the indoor! Then I ate lunch and headed over to my lesson on Paige. I got a good workout, probably feel it more than Paige will tonight! LOL! After riding, we did a little showmanship again. Not sure what the plan is for tomorrow, I think maybe it'll be the trainer's turn to work her out and let me heal! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The vet gave BJ a good report yesterday, said he is making progress after the EPM. He also filed his teeth and gave everyone a rabies vaccine.
We have storms and rain forecast for today, and I'm already hearing thunder rolling around out there.
Well, thanks for the encouragement last night. It's an understatement to say that I'm so grateful everything turned out okay. It's my son's first car he's bought by himself, so my heart breaks for him, he's very discouraged.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a good hump day.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. What a gorgeous day out today. Sunny and mid 40's! Wed rain all day, but the mid 50's before returning to more colder temps. Well today was Paige's first day of Marissa riding her since our last show. She's impressed with some things I've been working with and it's a big improvement, but I did let her get a little flat on her top line. So Wed I get a lesson in lifting and elevating that neck to round out the back. Of course this will be the opposite of my hands down and not above the horn. I'll be picking up on her to lift her. But Marissa said that what I worked on came along good. My steering off my leg and keeping my hand down and quiet! Always learning, it you're not, then you're not riding right! Indy gets a work out Wed also, before I go over there. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

That's too bad about the weather; my weekend was chilly but not rainy, but it's still too muddy to really do anything. I gave Cimarron some dewormer on Saturday; that greatly upset him, so I spent the remainder of Sat. and Sunday feeding him large quantities of treats and trying to win back his favor. Poor guy, he just manages to make me feel really guilty.

Anyways, I hope your week is off to a great start!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Sorry you didn't get any Koot time, weather is a factor for sure. But spending Sunday with your Dad for his birthday is the best! Well the temps was warm again, only 47 this time and overcast all day. But it sure beats 30 degrees and windy! LOL! Morning was devoted to housework, hate that job! Had the Slow cooker going with Chicken Dumplings in it. First time making that one and first time ever eating that! It was really good! Then I took some hay to the barn. Indy got to free play while I picked up all the poles and stacked them off the riding area. Now I can get the big tractor in on Tuesday and really drag the entire place good and make it nice and fluffy! Love fluff! LOL! Trimmed Bullseye's hind feet today. That's done for 4 weeks now. If I keep up with the rasp then, he don't need the clippers to them. Then it was up to the house and eat that fantastic meal I made myself. Got enough for like 5 meals out of it.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh what a day, sunny and it was 55 over at Marissa's and 52 up here on the mountain top at my farm. Paige was lunged and we had a showmanship lesson. Marissa was very impressed at how much I've improved with her and how well we are doing! Tuesday will be her first under saddle lesson with Marissa. Got home and turned out Indy and Bullseye in their pastures for like an hour. I cleaned up the back yard where the wood pile was. I finally finished burning off all that wood and now just had to rake and pick up the little mess it left. All done, nice and neat again. Then just hung out outside for a while enjoying this spring like day! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Not sure what is going on with Horse Channel, everyone has a different HOTD posted, most of them are from the last few days. Yours show Nikko as HOTD.
This weekend is wonderful as far as temps are. In the 30's, but last night when we came out of Mass/Church, it was raining, which is never good this time of the year. Nothing seemed slippery this morning, so must not have rained too much. Getting a few more eggs each day....up to 3 now. Would like to start incubator up, but have to get a different rooster so just will not take the chance on getting deformed baby chicks. Whisper was right there this morning, waiting for her treats. Give her a candy cane each morning, and of course all the little ones get there cup of grain, well more like 2 cups. Whisper and the little herd are sending you and your herd a Sunday morning vote.
