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!

Good morning everyone.
Saturday is finally here and today will be a busy day for us.
Looks to be rainy today so I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to get Eli out. What is funny is he came to the gate last night like he wanted out. The last time I put on his halter he was really good with it and I led him right out the gate. If I have time after volunteering today and if it isn't rainy I'll get Eli out for a while.
Hope all is well with everyone. Have a great weekend.

Oh, ok, thought you'd already had the pics done. That'll be cool when you finally can get them back.
I hear you about the mid 80s. That sounds pretty good to me too. I think we've been hitting 90 or 91 lately, but the humidity hasn't been as bad, so it's been possible to be out all day if you're that lucky, lol.
Hope you like your new vet. Sounds like you'll have Koot all shined up for the visit. Hope you have a good weekend.

It has been a crazy few months, work has been nuts trying to catch up after the Avian Flu. Things are settling down a bit, but we also have some new management in my department that are not helping efficiency, my opinion, just saying.... Add to that Hot Hazy and Humid summer, it feels like all I do is work, chores and sleep. I have a week off and am soooo looking forward to the rest. Sterly and Charlie are doing very well, both have dealt with the heat quite well, we watch Sterly closely for any breathing issues and get her inside with her big fan during the hot part of the day. Have a great weekend, and thanks for continuing to visit even when I have not been the best friend...Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope all goes well with the new vet and that Koot don't get his reactions to the shots. Don't forget and tell the new vet about that problem. Felt okay today, it was the heat for sure that got to me. I really should know better! AWH, cooler today, only hit about 80 but was overcast and a nice breeze. So no sun to bake ya! Lunged Indy and then Lunged Paige and did showmanship with her. I have a few things to fine tune on my presentation to improve my scores for next season. Really working at it. Then went downtown to a BBQ for a fast bite to eat, actually was able to eat a hamburger on a roll! Got home and turned the out, no flies today. While they were out, I got the shop vac out of the tack room and de-cobwebbed three stalls and the hay stall. Tomorrow maybe do a little more. But I have to hire the kid to do the center aisle way, I don't do ladders! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I am so glad to just be able to send a vote today. I changed to a wireless modem, and lost the internet. Even after calling in 4 times , the engineers could not fix the problem, today, a woman, walked me through what needed to be done, and she had problems, until I myself tried a advance setup, and got to change the passwords, and made it.

Farrier came and did their hooves yesterday. They really needed it too. Susie's ears are looking better. It may not have been mites at all probably allergic reaction to insect bites. She doesn't like putting that ointment in her ears though. Enjoy your Labor day weekend. Left a vote.

hi, hope you're doing well. did the temps cool down like they were forecast? so glad you were able to take Koot on a trail ride the other day. looks like you had a good time.
spent a couple of days down at my folks' place taking care of my mom. she's got pneumonia, and got really down with it because it took her docs so long to diagnose it. she's been slowly improving, but has gotten weaker the last 2 days, so has an apt today. she's still on an antibiotic, so I hope she's ok, but will see what the doc says.
I haven't had any horse time in a while, but have an unexpected day off (got volume managed today) so hope to sneak in a little horse time today.
well, hope you have a good Friday. take care.
PS, have you gotten your pics back yet?

Sadie has a rude habit. She'll turn her butt toward you, lift her tail and fart. It seems to be her way of saying you're dismissed. Lol. She's done it to several people. I'm her main target, though. Not very lady like. Leaving love and a vote. <3

Katie, Erika, and I went riding in the tilled grass seed field behind our barn. It was fun! Been awhile since we went on a "trail" ride lol She did good and I was able to snap a pic of Erika on her and another of my view looking between her ears (I uploaded them onto Katie's profile page tonight). Erika is finally tall enough that I can adjust my western saddle's stirrups to her length. It's the same saddle my dad bought me 30 years ago when I was her age!

HI Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Didn't do a darn thing today. Woke up not feeling so great! Think I over did it yesterday in the heat and humidity! So spent the day on the couch sleeping and drinking lot's of water to hydrate after baking in the sun all day Wed! Didn't turn the horses out at all, very humid and with a feels like 92 today, so they got a lunch of hay and fresh water, in front of their fans of course. Supposed to only be about 80 tomorrow and less humidity. Hopefully I'll work them out and get a ride in on Paige. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

So far so good, on getting the ponies. These little ones have not been abused or thin, just that her hubby is sick, and she is always running him to the dr. Hopefully, I can buy the papers too, after a bit. Can not wait to see them besides a picture. My girls are sending you a Good Morning vote.

Schedule cinnamon and elis vet appointments for this month... I think cinnamon has been acting more exhausted lately. So, since they didn't have their yearly exams yet, now would be a good time so I know nothing is wrong with my girl.

If you still want me to blog on your page,let me know so I know who STILL to blog too. Thanks :-)

Thank you all, again, for voting Sadie September HOTM. Since I didn't run her and missed a few days of voting, I was, and am, so surprised. I went out to spend some time with her, Wednesday evening. I asked her, "How the heck did you get HOTM?" She gave me attitude and walked away. Lol. She had great timing. A heartfelt thanks, lots of love and a vote.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. That was great that you got in a nice trail ride and then Koot got in some free roll around the arena time! LOL! Very productive day today. Although very hot and started out very humid, but the humidity did clear up a little by mid-day. I decided at 10 am to wash the Beast. It had all the arena dust on it from the last two shows. Then moved it into the shade and did a fast spray wax on it! But then it was about 1:30 and the humidity came down, so I turned out the horses for a while. Poor Paige was running, well a slow pleasure lope, I could tell it wasn't right! She had a big 707 on her hip. I walked down and she came right over and turned her butt to me, like help mom! I did, killed it! She thanked me. After they came in, I weed whacked the front pasture and mowed that one, said oh heck and mowed the back yard too! By then it was time to call it quits! Walked over by the new neighbor and had a old dad root beer with him. That's the hard stuff root beer, love it, and I'm not a drinker! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Haven't had a lot of time for writing something beside, a good morning vote. Well, today it is raining, slow cool rain, so it gives me time, in between canning veggies and pickles, to do some voting and getting on the computer.
Working on getting a young colt, (mini) and then even get offered his mama, she had been hurt, but seems to be OK, since she is trotting around. So in a week or so, I should have a few little horses.

I will run for October HOTM with cinnamon if you all will vote. You all did great last month and we were so close. I will do a better job of blogging/voting this month. The 15th is my birthday so I'm not sure if I can come on then... I probably will be able to... Don't have anything planned. I think it would be awkward to invite my friends after all that has happened, but i do miss them. :-(
Anyhow, we will run for October HOTM and I've seen that we have already gotten quite a few votes since the 31st. Keep up the good work everyone!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Glad to hear that the temps are cooling off for you. Ours have returned to high 80's to low 90's for this week. Today we like 88 but not bad humidity, so the bugs weren't out in force! Hope you get in some riding time. Well did a lot of running around this morning, so no riding time when I got home. But the kids did go out almost 2 hours in the heat and today I double sprayed them with their fly spray. All was good. Okay, it was a lucky lottery day for me. Our local radio station has a contest Monday thru Friday every week. Questions about all different things, and every week it's a new prize for those 5 days. I usually try to win when it's something I can really use. This week it's lottery tickets. (Remember I won the rodeo tickets in June.) So yep, I was the first caller and I knew the correct answer. So in running my errands, I went there and got my 5 tickets. Hit on 4 of them for a total of $110. I'm so happy! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Luckily, we're cooling a bit too. Mid nineties (usually we're well over 100 this time of year). Rain in the forecast, don't know if we'll get any. Everything is interfering with horse time, woke up this AM with a sore knee, so just did the basics.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well almost finished with polishing the cabinets in the L/Q trailer. Got the kitchen and sofa area done today. Now tomorrow up in the goose neck to do all the cabinets that surround the bed area and I'm done! Got that pasture weed whacked and mowed and had the kids out most of the afternoon. But it was hot and humid and the giant horse fly's were eating at them. Indy even ran out past me when I went to attach his lead and ran through two pastures and right into the barn for salvation! I had to hose him off, he was soaked from running away from two that got him on the back big time. Poor guy! Tomorrow is dentist for a check up on the sutures that came out and then hair cut time. Plus a few other errands. Hopefully when I get home it won't be as hot and humid and they can go out, otherwise it's hay for lunch! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Well... we finally got rain it didn't amount to much here in Mosier , just settled the dust and gave a wonderful fresh smell to the land, but I think it may have dumped some good soakers on the fires that are West of us, sold $ 100.00 worth of surplus horse tack at my dads yard sale Saturday, the rest I think I will donate to the Equine Rescue facilities in our area, gonna find out if they want it first, Lilly the goat boys and I took two long walks yesterday,looking for deer, it's archery season here.

Dropping by with an early morning vote. Darby is doing great, he loves all the grass in our pasture. Him and Copper have six acres, with trees and a pond. Hope all is well, one more day and it's September! The weekend was busier than usual, didn't have a chance to ride. But today or tomorrow I will. I think Darby likes the break. Last time I rode we did barrels. He lopes great, but his turns aren't the tightest. But we'll work on it. Other than that he's pretty good. But he still loves to jump. He actually pulls the bit to line up and jump. It's too funny. But I'm glad I found something he enjoys. Well have a blessed Monday, love always and a click on your horseshoe!!!
