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.

HI, left a vote. Darcy had her surgery today, six hours long! Everything went well! I worked with Amber and the mud puddle today, it was a bit deeper than the other day! LOL! She did better with it today.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Glad that your friend found overdrive on Koot and got him movin' for ya! I have the Cavallo boots, use them over the shoes for turnout sometimes, don't want a shoe yanked off in the pasture. Yes Paige got her yearly shots. Four of them, two in each side and she's a mess again this year! This poor girl Paige is still having her issues with her neck from her shots. Had to call my vet again, back on 2 more days of bute for her neck. He told me as much turn out and to lightly ride her. So this afternoon, I did a little lunge work after her turnout and then a light workout. She was better after the bute this morning. Then brushed Indy, and got a lot of little tiny hairs off of him. Light rain, but didn't stop me from doing what needed to be done, done! My vet called me just as we finished riding and asked how she was doing. Told him a lot better, he said good. So hopefully we'll be all better in another day or two! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: “I'm feelin Spring”

Fancy, Trigger, and Fatima are stopping by this evening just to paw on your horseshoe.

I have gotten a little rest and I am at it again.
Boy we all are so busy this spring. I think after all the harsh icy winter days, we are all just ready for some fun in the sun with our horsey pals ♥

Fatima is showing great improvements in weight gain. I think the winter was very hard for her while she was so underweight. She does seem to have a lot of spunk now. At first she would come to me but not in a friendly manner. It was more like she was just interested in the fact that I provide food. Now, half the time Fatima beats Fancy to the gate when they see me coming with or with out food.

Have a blessed evening
Love Fancy and herd.

Good morning Koot! Hope you had a wonderful Easter. Sounds like you had some good times and got nice and fresh with a bath. Didn't quite get warm enough for that yet but hopefully soon - Butter really needs one to get that dirt and hair out. We got a ride in on Saturday and again yesterday and the trainer comes on Thursday so all in all, Butter had a busy but fun weekend too. He did really well on both rides, even took the lead once for about ten steps. LOL, he is such a baby.
Kepp up the good work on the barrels! Have a great day.

Hi Danya and Koot!! Left a vote :)
Digit had his 2nd crypt orchid surgery on the 19th. They found an over sized testicle on his right side not just a testicular remnant!! He is now home and confined to stall rest for the next 2 weeks. I cannot wait to have my sweet baby back!!! Vet says at least a month but could take up to 6 months for him to stop acting like a stallion. He's got 6 weeks of recovery before I can ride him again.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, OUR REDEEMER LIVES!!!:

Have this Fancy Easter vote this Sunday evening.
It has been a very busy weekend.
We got up at 4am to get ready for Sunrise service at our church. Enjoyed the services until I began to get sleepy during the regular sermon.


After church, I worked on my Mom's flower garden. I began it last Mother's day as her present from me. I am still working on it. Got all the weeds out, planted two perennials, put weed barrier down and added plant soil. Whew!


We finally went home and I put fresh water out for the herd and gave them their grain. I cleaned some tack while they ate. I still have to keep Fancy out of Fatima's grain. Trigger eats in the stall so I don't have to worry about Fancy taking his grain.
After they ate, I bridled Fatima and drove her around while I walked beside her. She doesn't seem to know any cue for walk on. She is learning whoa. She has learned to walk to the tree after our lessons so I can tie her. She stopped as we got to the tree and I talked to her real nice and she came on so I could tie her out. She stood there calmly and I untied her and waked her around and back to tie. I did that a few times and she was fine.


Then Fancy and I practiced what little I know for our showmanship class. Then Fancy ate grass in the yard. Then I put Fancy back in the corral and Fatima ate grass in the yard.


My body is very tired. Ready for rest! This has been a blessed day. I pray the rest of the week is nice as well.


Hope you are enjoying this blessed holiday.

HI, left a vote. Happy Easter everyone. Hunted for eggs this morning with Issiac. So much fun. Then I went and worked with Amber a bit. Went for a walk with her, encountered a mud puddle, she refused to walk through it. So, we spent a great deal of time today working with that puddle! LOL! She wasn't scared, she just didn't want to get her feet wet. I don't blame her, but if we go on a trail ride, and come across puddles, she needs to walk through them. Will work some more on it tomorrow. I then stopped by Sue's barn and cleaned Darcy's stalls today, and loved on her horses for a bit.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a Happy Easter vote for ya. Isn't it great when you have a trainer that really knows how to read a horse and figure out things! Glad that you had a great run then. Lucky Koot, a bath, still not really warm enough here to bathe them. What a day. Paige is still really having trouble with a stiff neck. I tried to work her, she was grinding her teeth. Stopped, and called Larry my vet. Yes, it's Easter Sunday, I don't care and neither does he. I have his private cell number, called that, he was out on the tractor seeding a pasture, yep no days off for horse people! LOL! Said give her 5 cc Banamine and come up and get some Gastro Guard for her tummy and keep on bute for two more days. So Harley and I jumped in the truck and off we went to Doc's farm. She's just so sensitive! So I did that before going over to my good friend and her family for Easter Diner! Got home and Paige was much better, moving her neck more, Banamine is working, and so's the Gastro Guard. Other than that, it's sunny and hit 60 degrees again. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Celebrating Easter with love, hugs & votes 4 all!
✞ Picking up from yesterday about him tossing his head about bugs. Sometimes I can make a pony tail in his fore lock and that helps a lot. I think he sees his hair sometimes and over reacts, big ol’ treat hound! As soon as we get under the trees on those trails he just stops tossing his head and settles right back into his awesome self. I will add Rocky Mountain facts to my blogs for the rest of our HOTM run. I hope you enjoy them =)
The history of the Rocky Mountain Horse from 1890 to the latter part of the 1900s carries little or no documentation and few facts that can be proven beyond the shadow of doubt. Everyone who personally witnessed the breed's beginnings (back to the 1800s) is deceased, and we have been left with only verbal history passed down from generation to generation. Thus, all that can be recorded at this point in time are the stories recollected by living descendants. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

HAPPY EASTER
Have I ever mentioned that I have just the BEST horse in the world....Charlie is wonderful, we had a nice ride yesterday, about 2/3 of the ring is dry, we just have to skip around the mushy part. Charlie hates to walk in mud anyway, but because our land is clay, it is very slippery when wet, very hard when dry. Trevor is still in the city, we miss him, but this is good news that he is OK. I'm sure he will be back. Have a wonderful day, hope the bunny found you all, Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Feel better today. Went and audited a western dressage clinic. Learned some things. It was a good clinic.

Found out today that my good friend Darcy will be having open heart surgery on Tuesday. She boards out at Sue's, so I cleaned both of Darcy's stalls for her today. Probably being doing that for awhile. Then I helped Sue get ready to go to the clinic. She rode in it today, she did great!

Have a wonderful day!
The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

STARTED STERL'S HAIRCUT....
Hi Dayna & Koot, We are happy to report Sterly looks good this morning, we left votes. I hate when she is off, she is so easy to read, so is Charlie. I realize that even a mild gas colic is upsetting to their systems and it takes a couple of days to get everything straightened back out. Because she is generally pretty healthy, just the usual "old age" stuff, I have always thought that if something takes her from me, it will likely be colic. So I have had a couple of real bad days too... We do what we can, nature takes care of the rest. Have a wonderful Easter, Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh that's good that he didn't limit riding. so that means it's very minor and just a good eye on it. Yay for the new Elite boots that you ordered. You'll love them! Today was their day off, everyone had a stiff neck, well except Bullseye the donkey. They are so hearty! Even with the bute last night for Indy and Paige, they were sore. Paige is the worst! She usually is, she'll still get bute tomorrow and that day off too. I did give each one time in the indoor to move around and run if they wanted to. Way to muddy to get to the pastures yet. Don't want anyone slipping and getting hurt! Didn't get near as warm as they said, only hit a high of 48 instead of 55! Once again, weather forecasters screw up! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

hey Koot!
Wow! Everyone got HOTD all at once! Thanks!
Had a great time yesterday do some more in-hand jumping with Tarnation. Today I worked some more with bathing Rocky, because he pretty dirty. Then I went to let him graze and he bucked as we were walking just out of pure energy. So I put him in the round pen and he ran and ran. I couldn't get him to slow down. After awhile I caught him and rode him a bit. Then were roping cows in the biggest arena and he was very interested so we went over and checked it out. Then turned him and Tarnation out. So it was a really good day.
