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!

I use Freedon 45 and I feel it really helps alot~I sure hope it works for Koot. I have a friend that has to take her horse for shots to help allergys ♡ enjoy your 4th of July weekend! I have a spa day planned for the herd after a ride around our property in the early morning. I will be BBQing pork ribs in the afternoon and then enjoying the fireworks that evening! Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love ♡

Let’s begin where it all started. I have never been involved with horses before. The closes I’ve been to a horse was when I was young, my cousins in Kenner had a horse. I rode on the back of it once or twice. Then in my later years, my sister got a horse. We were both married with children by then. I was in my late 40’s when I got Susie. Although Susie was not my horse. She was purchased for my daughter. My husband purchased Susie on June 9, 2006, because my daughter had been on a trail ride with some friends and decided that she wanted a horse. We saw an ad in a Quick Quarter, a weekly advertisement. So we went to take a look.~~~

Have a happy 4th of July weekend! Left a vote.

Good Morning vote!! Doing anything special on the 4th. Hubby gets to march with the Vets in the local parade, but most likely will be working in the hay field. Cut yesterday, but without machinery to siderake and bale, we have to wait for neighbors to help.

Sadie's mister came a day early. Austin and I put it up. Somehow, one of the heads got stripped. Instead of sending it back, I'm going to seal it off. The rest of the heads work great. Sadie enjoyed spending time with us. She was so cute watching Austin. Easily entertained. Lol. Love and a vote.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. I really hope that the Freedom 45 works for Koot. They say it's good stuff. Love a farrier that's on time! He said between 10 and 11 am, is 10:30 good, yep it's great! He did Paige first, as she's a full shoeing. Then did a trim on Indy. Buy the time he finished, I had dumped two bags of grain and brought a load of hay to the barn. Since they told me no heavy lifting for 24 to 48 hours after the biopsy. So then I came in and took a shower and left for the doctors. They did an ultra sound and he gave me some lidocane to numb it. Did 4 needle biopsy's, didn't really hurt that much. But I still got dizzy and light headed when sitting in the room for the 20 minute period to make sure I was okay. Not, blood sugar went down to 60, had to drink 16 ozs. of OJ, in 5 minutes was up to 71 and I was a little better, blood pressure was good then too at 124 over 72. So another 20 minute waiting time and I was able to be released to drive home. Hurts like heck when I cough, which I do a lot of with the asthma, and it's sore! No riding for a day or two he said also. Darn, that hurts more than the pain of the neck! I love to ride. And the lawn and pastures need to be mowed, can't do that till Sat. either! Oh well. Results in 7 days, but a look he took under the slide looked okay he said. Thanks for the Prayers, keep'em coming for the final clearing on it. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

PS- I apply it wearing a plastic glove, skimp just a bit and rub the extra (1/2 cc) on the belly. It works so great for me! If I need to address other places, just use a bi8t of Swat rollon.

Don't know if the Freedom 45 will help with his itching, but did notice when I put the Soresto collars on all the cats, my older cat that the vet said had grass allergies (and always had to get an allergy shot every spring) had all her hair grow back and no itching problems this spring. That's really good, because getting her in the kitty carrier usually involves blood (mine).

How's it going?
Trotting by with some hot votes! Another summer day here in Texas, very hot! Well yesterday's ride went well, we worked on some great bending exercises. He is very good at them, also worked on one rein stops. After my ride yesterday morning while I un tacked him I noticed that he had gotten a cinch mark. So I've been applying vetericyn on it, today I just did ground work. He did good, he seems to not like to pick up his right lead. Like it's un natural for him to lope on that side or something. But I got him to do a full circle without trotting.
Hope all is well, best wishes and stay cool!!!

Whiskey and the boys enjoyed carrots and alfalfa cubes to celebrate King Whiskeys HOTM win! It has been way too hot to ride. I am hoping to ride early Saturday morning around our home area. I will give baths and let the horses have a spa type afternoon! The lakes are still closed and it will be close to July 26th before opening. Happy trails and Have a wonderful day “)

This run for HOTM is going to be for Susie. She deserves the recognition since my world of horses all started with her. Without her I would not have known the joy and the beauty of horses. So the next 30 days I will tell her story.

Yeah, we've had some mornings to be 80 by 7 am too. Ugh. Will CA stay that hot all summer? Usually, our July and August are the hottest months, but the seasons have been anything but usual lately. Here's hoping we all have some unseasonably cool temps the next 2 months.

The Freedom 45 is amazing. Sherry uses it too. Sounds a bit expensive, but a 12 week supply is like 22-25$, actually much cheaper than fly spray that doesn't work. Don't like the Farnum Spot On, it's greasy and doesn't last as long.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Maybe that Freedom 45 will do the trick for him. I sure hope so, it's probably those little midgies that really annoy him and make him itch! Just got a text from my farrier, he's coming tomorrow! 5 days earlier than our appointment, but he's going on vacation starting Sat and won't be able to keep them on schedule. So rather than let them get a week longer than usual time frame, he's coming up! Love a good on time farrier! Sun finally came out and it looks like the next 5 days are sunshine and high 70's to low 80's! YES! Maybe then can catch up on mowing around here on Friday. Got Indy lunged and Paige lunged and ridden. Went to get on her from my stepping block and it's like something wasn't right! Stirrups were set at my trainers length, 2 inches longer than my length. No wonder I couldn't swing my leg over her! LOL! Marissa rode Ranch Pleasure Open class after mine, and you have to show in a working saddle. Not my fancy silver Harris show one. LOL! All better now! LOL! Well at least with Jason coming to do them, it'll keep my mind off the biopsy appointment later that day! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Happy Birthday! Nice ride on Cisco this AM, then finished mowing the riding area. What a mess, grass was so high and thick had to mow a lot of it twice. Almost done, just need to reset a few obstacles. Hot and humid again, that humidity needs to take a hike! I use Freedom 45, it's a spot on, only apply it every 2 weeks or so, and no trouble with flies, mosquitos, ticks or gnats. I do use Swat roll on fetlocks and bellies if I need it.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Glad that you got in some Koot time, even if only to see him and give him lots of lovin' and carrots. Maybe the fly masks really bother him? Would he be better off without it maybe? If you don't hear from me tonight and read this one another's page, it's cause we're getting pounded on again. Thunder and lightning getting closer. Heavy rains, possible hail the size of quarters and winds in excess of 70 mph! What gives Mother Nature! Anyhow, got the kids lunged today in between heavy rains, didn't want to walk from the barn to the indoor even! Me or them! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Gosh, sorry it's so hot out there.it's been cooler here and I was able to ride BJ and do groundwork with Gracie yesterday. Enjoyed spending time with them.
So Koot destroys his fly masks? Poor boy, being so itchy. Mine won't leave them on either. Need to invent something that repels bugs without covering their heads or chemicals, maybe a beany cap with a fan on top, lol.

Sorry it's so hot there (on top of no rain). It just won't quit here. Hot and humid (feels like 107-110). Thunderstorm came thru early this AM, just enough rain to make it a bit muddy to ride. Dried up this afternoon, but way to hot to ride (or do anything outside in the afternoon). Did get some obstacles moved out of 1/3 I didn't mow yesterday, so hoping to ride and mow tomorrow.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. WOW what a show. Started with a Tornado going through just behind our barns, it did a lot of property damage to the place and to many homes and roads. But horses and people are all okay. We had a great show! Paige was Circuit Class Champion in Novice Amateur Mares, Novice Amateur Ranch Pleasure, and Amateur Ranch Pleasure, Prizes were (2) those folding logo chairs and a cooler for the circutis and plus we won 2 halters, 2 bottles of Pyrhania Bug Spray, Bag of Peppermint treats, Logo Grooming towels and another lap top case. Put 4 National Halter Points on her and 2 National Ranch Pleasure Points on her lifetime AQHA record. Indy was a good boy, only got lunged due to the heat and that we lost the indoor bubble practice arena to the Tornado. And it was only about 100 feet from our barn. One motor home out past my trailer bad it's roof ripped off! And Saturday night we had another bad storm, that our barn was evacuated to the show indoor arena for the safety of the horses! Got home 9 pm Sunday, spent the day unloading. And had the doctor about my Thyroid. Have to go Thursday for a biopsy! Prayers please folks! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot
Galloping by with some Monday morning votes.
I rode Darby yesterday morning and this morning. We practiced barrels, he did great. It surprised me, since we have not done them in a while. I only trotted the pattern, but loped home a couple times. He seems to take a while to pick up a lope coming home. That's what he needs work on, but the turns are pretty tight. Hoping to lope in between the barrels soon! I plan to ride again tomorrow.
Best wishes!

a long winded friend of mine showed up about feeding time just as it was cooling down and I was thinking about a little bareback ride, so I never got to ride yesterday. but we stood in the pasture for a while talking, and Allie stood between us soaking up pats and attention for a whole hour. what an attention hound. she just assumes that she's the center of the universe and the only reason we were down there.
well, maybe there will be a ride today. how about you, any rides this weekend? hope you're having a good one. take care.

Here is a busy Saturday morning vote from my girls. Have to run 10 miles, (think I will drive), to let friends' dogs out, then go back later for a funeral, and then to Mass/Church, back to take care of the dogs. Somehow fit, my own chores in, too. Guess, what my husband will have to butter his own bread....that's a joke, between us, because it makes my sister and his, mad, when I wait on him at friend doings. They ask him, cann't he cook, and he will say, "I had to butter my own bread, this morning".
