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. Woke up to drizzle and misty rain. Very overcast day and now a storm moving in! Honey is under the computer desk at my feet! Well we all feel rested today. Honey had a really good time, she made new friends, and even with some other pups! We did our training session this morning in the indoor. She's off leash all the time going and coming from the barn, she's doing so well. Okay now it's time to work Paige out, yep you can tell she's home. Didn't try to take advantage of me at all! So she's getting ring wise and I'm good at curing that! It'll cost me a class or two, but I'll win that one! Indy got free time to run and roll in the indoor. And since it hadn't rained anymore and wasn't going to for a few hours, out they went! Noses to the grass and never came up for air! Almost 2 hours of relaxing and eating for them. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Tkx Allie, BJ, Gracie for 15100!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, Tks Bella Boo of DC #16300! & MWS Zippn By Indy, Tks. Mom, Paige, H.T., 20,900!.

A Vote for You!!
For some reason HC or computer is so slow, it is taken me so long to vote this morning. In between weeding the garden, and feeding weeds to pigs, washing and cleaning tack, which I "hope" to trade for a large pony, small horse, that will be "just my size". Will tell everyone more later when I have more information. All I know right now is 48-50 inch mare, a Appaloosa, and about 12 yrs old broke but has a limpy leg, from scar tissue, of untreated leg sore.

Those weekends can sure speed by. Hope you get some Koot time over the 4th of July weekend.
No, mid to high 90s is more typical of late July, early August, it's a bit hot for June. Hope that doesn't mean the "dog days" are even hotter. Ugh.
we had a really good time visiting my sister. She and her hubby are really happy in their new place, and that's good to see.
I finally got to ride this morning. Allie has had over a week off. She did okay, I'm going to try trotting tomorrow and hope she doesn't get too wound up doing it. We'll see.
Well, it's bedtime. Have a good night.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well Sunday's two Ranch Riding classes of course didn't go off till 5 pm or so! We were both ready to go home at that point! LOL! But we got two 3rds in the Novice Ranch Riding and and 2 and 3 rd in the Select Ranch Riding. We scratched out of the Open division, as Paige was really tired and I didn't want to push her. Being there 7 days with no turn out time or down time was tough on both of them. They got to spend the day laying down (rained) and so did I! Slept most of it. We didn't pull in the driveway until 10:15 pm Sunday night! LOL! In all my years of showing, this was the biggest show I've even shown in! Classes were big, a couple of mine had almost 30 horses in them! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

hope youve had a good weekend. any Koot time?
i had a great time at my sister's. we went to the beach a couple of times. in the early morning, they allow dogs to run off leash, so it was fun to go see the dogs running in the surf and digging in the sand. they really have a big time, you just have to smile for them. we went to a water park saturday night after it had gotten dark and cooled off, walked out onto a long pier and talked and caught up, watched people fishing. had a long talk at starbucks over coffee. took a nap or two. just had a really great time. it was hot though, high 90's with a heat index of over 105. it was good to get home and see the horses this evening though. my son and niece did a good job taking care of everything.
well, headed to bed. have a good night.

It is nice out this morning, rained, well poured so hard coming home, (55 miles) from gradation party, that cars were pulling off the road. Our windows were open at home, and we wanted to go to Mass at 4, so we just slowed down to a fast crawl, and 10 miles from home, it was not raining at all, so closed windows, and went to another Mass at 4:30, glad we did...a beautiful guitar Mass, singing was so good. Started raining while I was doing chores, and getting everyone in for the night. Thunder and lightening was powerful, and again rained. My feed tubs had at least 3 inches in them......and lots of mud again.

I hope you get you some Koot time :) are the fires anywhere close to you? I got out early and mowed and weedeated what I could. I had to run get a shower then the farrier came to trim Deacon. Once that was done I went to the grocery store got our food then I had to go pick up a few bales of hay. I finished around 12:15, that was all I could get done before the terrible heat sat in. I turned Deacy out to graze and sat in the shade and watched him while a nice breeze was blowing :) Have a wonderful weekend ♥

Spent time with the herd yesterday and today. Cleaned out and straightened the tack room. Got stung by a wasp while doing so. Worked Ace in the round pen and then let him walk on the walker. He did really good. Gave the horses their vaccination shots. They are all still clean from their last bath. All is going well. Enjoying my week away from work. Have a great weekend.

So glad you got to ride Koot. What a treat, huh? And it's good he waited till after the ride to kick up his heels and play, lol.
I'll be off line for a few days. I'm headed to Charleston to visit my sister and get a little beach time and shrimp. Hope you have a great weekend.

Loping by with a vote! Yeah, everything is going alright here. The vet ultimately said that Cimarron tore some ligaments and muscles in his right shoulder. He'll be fine after some extended rest. In the meantime, he's just enjoying lots of love, treats, and time in the pasture.

How are you doing? I'm glad you had such a good time on your honeymoon! What all did you do?

That's so cool that you got to go to a different island this time and do so much interesting and fun things. Loved the pic you put on FB yesterday, the "sneak peak". Look forward to seeing the rest.
Didn't quite get time to ride yesterday, but I enjoyed spending some time with my daughter. After her doctor's appt we stopped at a coffee shop, one of our favorites that's only in that town, and that was fun. Turns out she has swimmers ear; didn't know that could be so painful.
The horses are all fat and sassy and doing fine. No, they're quite happy with love and food without having to work for it, lol.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great hump-day.

Welcome back. Your pics of the wedding and the honeymoon trip looked great, thanks for sharing them with us. Was that your first time to Hi? I've never been, but it looks like a blast.
Not much here. June has been hot and dry. I'll have a few days where I can ride a lot, then a while when I cant, mostly due to life getting too busy. But the horses are doing well.
Glad you're back. Do you have a readjustment time before you have to go back to work? Take care.

It was suppose to be 120*, Monday, but only made it up to 116*. Cooling down to 112* and then, 110* later in the week. Suppose to be around 110* for the next 2 weeks. The air is hot. Thankful it's not humid, yet. Love to each of you and a vote.

We can't w2ait to hear all about your wedding & honeymoon :)

The new profile picture is of Whiskey and Smooch meeting through the fence! He is doing very well and the kids love him, so does Susan. Deacon would whinny here and there the 1st 2 days but sense then he has been fine. Of course he is getting 100% of my attention so he is eating that up. Cliff has been working on framing in the stall area to reinforce it. We were going to add some metal to the roof area but mother nature had a different plan for yesterday afternoon ~ yes the heavens opened up and we got hit by another storm that graced us with an 1" of rain. We did get the 2 panels plus the gate panel situated around the stall so Deacon now has afternoon & evening shade. Deacon welcomed the rain yesterday because it has been so hot here. He had a spa day Saturday and lots of grazing time in the yard. Yesterday he was groomed and turned out in the yard again. It has been to hot to ride. I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead ♡

So sorry I haven't been on. HC was down, then I had long shifts at work, making it impossible to vote. The wind was so hot when I got off work, Sunday night, my eyes burned. I came home, watered some of my trees, filled Sadie's water and splashed her butt with the hose. I got a dirty look, lol. What a brat. She's doing well, drinking lots of water. Thankful the heat doesn't seem to bother her. I started her on psyllium pellets, again. I mixed them with carrots and apples. She'd eat them without a treat, but I love to spoil her. And yes, I pay for it. Lol. Love and a vote.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well I'm not liking these hot days at all! Today was like 90, so needless to say, horses didn't get turned out! I did get all the mowing finished in 3 days, so the place shouldn't be a hay field when I get home next Sunday night. Trailer is in place and half packed! Just need to put extra bedding and all their feed and hay in tomorrow. Then hit the road about noon time! Of course it's going to be another hot one! I don't envy them in that trailer! I lunged Paige and did showmanship. Indy got to free play. Then Honey and I went down about 3 pm and did hay and water. And by the way, Honey did a sit stay and watched me pick stalls, empty water buckets 70 feet from the barn and then I filled them and hayed the horses. She never moved! This little pup is so smart! Love her! Well, I won't be on again till next Monday! So take care, vote when you can for my herd and I'll try to check in on FB during the show. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Kott & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Welcome home! I bet Koot and Tigger was so happy to see you! Well it's hot and humid here too! So we're going to the indoor to work Honey, and she's off leash. She spots something out by the manure pit and takes off! Honey No! She stopped! Was about 40 feet from me by then. Said, Honey Come, she ran right back to me. Good Girl, treat for that. Then we worked in the indoor with some of the large doors open, more airflow that way. She never went near them! Now I'm getting Paige ready to lunge and ride, an hour earlier than normal time. Wanna beat the heat! Nope, my hay man that cuts my back field shows up to mow! Paige on the wall for 45 minutes. That field is right behind the indoor, don't want to be a dirt dart three days before a show! Got a good ride in then and some nice 360's out of her. We were both soak'n'wet in that hour! Turned them out about 4 pm, at least a little cooler and less bugs. I mowed the lawn around the house then. Supposed to be worse tomorrow. Probably will be hooking up to the trailer in the am and starting to load it up! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Well my horses had a Spa day yesterday! I bathed all four horses with their Cowboy Magic Rosewater shampoo (it smells so good). I conditioned and combed their manes and tails, then put them under their fans to dry. Then they were fed and let out to graze. They are all pretty again. But I would bet not for long. lol Have a great weekend!

Not looking forward to the predicted 120* on Sunday, and it's not even summertime, yet. It's usually hotter here than in Phoenix. Keeping Sadie's water filled, as usual. She knows how to wet herself down when the temperature's from Hell hit. We have beautiful winters that make up for it. Lots of love and a vote.

Sold my 2 goats yesterday, I think it was the right choice. It was getting harder to keep them away from chicken corn, and they would follow me around while doing chores....I think it was just to watch me, to know where I put all that corn. I found them in the chicken coop eating their feed, and even when I hid the guinea's feed pan in the dog house in their pen, they found it. But now they will be a little girl's birthday present. Hubby is still grinning ear to ear....:). If only the Pickles and Paisley were not so afraid of them. I was more afraid that the two goats would get hurt from one of the minis. No baby yet.....I think Mistit changed her mind.

Scruffy's doing great. He was so good at the Vet's. Had to say hello to everyone there. The vet's assistant was surprised when I told her his 10th birthday is in August. She thought he was 2. She said he's in great shape. He's an over aged puppy. Lol. Sadie 's pretty, nosy butt's doing well, too.... Busy work weekend, again. Longer hours next weekend. Will vote when I can.

The mini flood in the living room was caused by the hubby, who was playing weatherman, again. Sure hope he does not take it up as a living. Same guy, who said was not going to freeze last night. Good thing I covered tomato plants, there was frost this morning, frost but no baby.
Ponies staying in at night so they can lay where it is dry and warm, sure is making a messy in the back of shed. This morning, "someone" decided to empty the barrel of empty feed bags, pull down another bale of hay, tip over water buckets, and I am sure they tried to let the rooster out of the rabbit hutch.
