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!

At least you're getting rain. Does that mean your drought is over? It would be nice if it came during the week though. Seems like you've had rain every weekend lately. At any rate, hope you have a good one.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope it don't rain on the weekend, or at least not both days. This way maybe you'll be able to get in one day of riding. Well it was 9 degrees and going up to about 23 today, sun was strong, which was good to melt off some of the ice in the gravel part of my driveway. Put down 40lbs of ice melt and a lot was gone when I got home from over at Marissa's. Had my first ride on Paige since she went to school. It was good to be on her again. We did some lose work, then I did Pattern #1 of the Ranch Horse Pleasure Class. Going to try adding that as a new event this year. It's a combo of Western Pleasure, Pattern (like reining) and a few obstacles like trail class. She loves things where she's mixing it up. So do I! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well on Wed. seems the site was down! I could log in after 20 tries, then that darn site down thing came up and asked what I was looking. Heck I knew what I was looking, you didn't! UGH! Anyhow, here we are! Wednesday we had temps hit 34 degrees with beautiful sunshine, and then today, 24 degrees with snow! But we got lucky, about an inch or so and most of it melted off the roads and driveway. Just added to the rest of it out there were you weren't down to earth! LOL! Indy and Bullseye have been worked both days in the indoor. Paige was pretty good, we're trying some new classes this year and worked on that. I'll be riding tomorrow, finally! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. We today was this season all time record low, and this was with no wind at all, it was a mere -15 degrees F. By noontime when I left to go and see Paige it did hit 17 degrees. But this morning for feeding my barn was horrible, it was down right cold! Indy and Bullseye didn't get out today. Paige only got lunged in her blanket and slinky and then I did a showmanship lesson with Marissa. Hopefully Wed. we'll be up in the low 30's and she'll be ridden. But Thurs back down in the single digits! I can't take much more of this! Winter sucks! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

♡ I made it to work. Bridges and over passes have ice but the freeway for the most part was ok. I still drove like a granny! By the time I get off work it is supposed to be 37 then drop back to the 20’s so I have one more day of driving in this mess. After work yesterday I went to feed the horses their evening dinner and I did stay out about 45 min. to hour but it was too cold to stay out any longer. Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =)

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. So glad that you had a good ride on Saturday and Koot enjoyed his roll and grass on the way home. Yep rain can spoil our riding fun for sure! Well that 40 degree day on Sunday went down hill fast. Woke up to 17 degrees and it's been dropping all day long. Down to 3 degrees right now and going to -09 by the morning! Lovely, just flippin lovely! Did get Indy to the indoor to play for a while, he's a ham for sure. He's sporting one of his slinkies now too! Hopefully can stop anymore of his five o-clock shadow from coming in on his neck! LOL! Don't think we'll be riding tomorrow at Marissa, yet another day's training gone down the tubes! High of only 12 degrees! I hate winter! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Wow, look at all that grass!
Cold and icy today - glad I didn't have to go anywhere. So much for best laid plans. When I went out to feed this AM (late when the horses finally came up) - their tub was full of ice. Seems the old deicer must have shorted out, and I didn't check to make sure the green light was on the GFI outlet. Scott pointed out the problem, and it is now happily heating away. Still had to carry out hot water, hate having to do that.

Jack is improving steadily, he is foraging alot more which is what he needed to get his strength back, the weather here has been out of this world nice, it's kinda scary hhahahaa, yesterday we pushed open an old logging road at the bottom of the orchard, looking forward to checking it out today with Lilly, yesterday we scared out some deer so I'll have to be very observant as she may get a little jumpy being in an new area of the orchard. love Suz and lilly

Tx is joining most of the rest of the country the next few days. 24 the next couple of nights, with sleet/ice accumulation of 1/2-1" expected. Fingers crossed that the power doesn't go out, filling up all available water containers just in case.

it was sunny after work and less windy-wind from the north & east rather then the south. Filled water tubs, turned out the boys to graze and put their feed up that I got on the way home. Just a nice evening before this silly weather hits us today and the next few days! Have a wonderful Sunday and here is a hug & a vote ♡ spring is just around the corner.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hoping that you got to see and ride Koot today. Well it's was -04 this morning and it's up to about 24 now with snow coming down. But we're not getting what they are talking about. They are saying 4 to 8 inches, but when you look at the map, it's like we're in a clear band between the snow falling. We only have about an inch on the ground and it started well before noon time. It's like all around here, but not here! Fine with me! Got Indy to the indoor, he's such a good boy. Hadn't been out in two days, walked like a gentlemen in the cold and on the snow covered icy paths. The ran a little in the indoor, but really just wanted hugs and rubs from mom! Got over then by Paige, Marissa's indoor was also holding at 20. So Paige got ridden with her slinky hood on, keep some of the heat in. She's not a cold weather riding horse at all, she too likes it warmer! But she did well in her lesson. Maybe not as good as the other day, but still good. We'll see what tomorrow's weather brings. Hoping warmer, then Monday only in the teens again! OHY! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

pretty pic!
We are getting more snow and ice right now-yuk! Today is actually warm-high 20's! I'm so done with winter! Bring on the heat LOL!

Ella's a stall walker by habit, so it's hard for me to understand this, but she's been walking funny with her front legs-baby steps-like she's sore, stiff, or cold. They've had very little turnout all week, but as much as possible. She trots and gallops a lot when out. They both are on MSM and Ultra Omega 3 which both has anti-inflamatory properties. No heat in legs and not tender in hooves. Any ideas?

36 doesn't move around in his stall like she does and he's just fine. Usually he stocks up because he's sedentary but probably do to the extreme cold his legs have stayed tight.

Better get busy-house cleaning day! Take care and be safe!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh I hope that you can get there Saturday. And more so, hope you don't get the rains on Sunday. This way you and Koot can have a full weekend of riding. Well it was one of those 3 times out today for me and that was it. Was -05 with wind chill of -17 this morning! Oh did have to hang in the garage with Joe my oil burner man, he made a delivery of oil today. But that was it. When I did go this afternoon, 2 pm to hay and warm water Indy and Bullseye it was up to 12 degrees with a Zero temp wind chill. Felt like summer with the strong sun! LOL! Nothing and no body got worked at Marissa's. Hopefully I'll get there tomorrow before the snow moves on in. Possibly another 5 to 7 inches and on Sunday it could turn to ice and then rain. Oh what a mess that'll be when it freezes over! I'm so flippin' done with winter! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope that you get some riding time in over the weekend. Well it was a cold cold one today, with bad boy winds. And only going to get worse tonight! Looking at about -07 with a wind chill of -24 by 7 am feeding time Friday morn! Just not right for us! When I just feed at 7 pm it was like 09 with wind chill of -04. It didn't feel to bad! LOL! I think I'm numb! Farrier was over to Marissa's today. Paige got her new shoes. We didn't get to ride, indoor had 3 of the babies in there from over night, they are just a year old and they don't want them out overnight in this. Farrier's truck blocked the entrance, so we couldn't get them out to their paddock in the sunshine. But the indoor was only 12 degrees anyhow, so not much would have gotten done with riding. Don't want the horses breathing in that cold air either! And I don't need anymore problems with my throat and voice. I haven't had my scarf off except for when in the heated barn or truck! LOL! So I paid the Farrier, hung with Paige a while and came home and hung out watching a movie on DVD! Lazy afternoon. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Can I have the 60 degree days please. Think about it, 60 for you and -25 for us. That's like drinking an ice cold beer with a hot coffee chaser! LOL! Well it was -05 this morning, but no wind so it really didn't feel bad. Did get up to 28 and very sunny, so it felt like spring time to me! LOL! Even tonight when I feed at 7 pm, it was still like 26 with no wind and felt nice actually. LOL! Hose defrosted today, heater had the barn up to 50 degrees at 5 pm. Hopefully it drained good and won't be frozen tomorrow. New one won't be here for at least a week! Happy to report that today was Paige's best day, she was a star! The light bulb in her brain came on! Marissa was nailing flying lead changes like crazy! And for the finish, rode her bridle-less! Pleasured like she did last summer! Yippy! Thursday into Friday the high winds and super cold return, with lows possibly being -25 degrees! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
