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.

Koot's birthday: April 10!

Loved that you got to go explore some of the new trails on Koot. Can't wait to go again, right? They looked beautiful.
I spent longer tearing off the rotten boards on top of the horses' pasture shelter. They weren't all as rotten as I'd thought, so I didn't get them all off yet. Then I had all this wood with nails in it (can't leave that mess around horses), so loaded it up and hauled it to the dump. Then had to go by the gas station to buy my son a soda as payment for helping me load it up (his help comes pretty cheap, lol). By the time I got home, it was too late to ride. Maybe today but maybe not Allie, since I only have one day available.
Anyway, hope you have a great sunday.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie.

Yep, been working on kitchen floor since last Christmas, found a soft spot where tile would not stick down. Well, figured I would clean it up underneath and glue down the tile.....soounds easy and simple, well, that one spot turned into a 10 x 8 area, and still growing. I do a little at a time, when Mike is not around, but the other day, he said, "Well, I see it is not going away, so might as well help." Under the rug under all this is a wooden floor....I peeked!! So hopefully, I can sand it down and have what I always wanted. But the ceiling is 12 ft high, so I will really feel short in there.
Today, we took apart the first round bale feeder, we have 4 of them. 3 were buffalo feeders, so very heavy duty, but each one had something wrong with it, so we have them opened to the outside to move bales in, picture a "C" shape, so gate or panel, the "C" shaped feeder, and then gate/panel again. But all the old hay has rotten down alot, and I just haul 7 loads this morning to "another" area, that I know will just look beautiful planted in flowers, since I already "buried" acorns in there, and will see what comes up in the spring. I had froze and thawed these acorns for awhile, so they might even start this fall, but not likely. Going to visit my Mom now, and see how many more apples she does not want. Peeled 5 5 gallon bucket of apples, frozen the slices for winter. Now I have blisters next to my thumb.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well did it get hot and humid today! The breeze kinda took a hike too! Honey and I got out early this morning for our walk. Got home and waited for Ingrid to here and play with Bullseye to see how donkeys react to different things and people. Of course my boy loves people and don't care about things. She brought a tarp with her to see what he'd do, he didn't even care! He got lots of peppermints from them. Then I turned the kids out, was about 82F degrees and still out there. Wood man came with my first two cords of wood! They ran a little in the pastures when the big truck was dumping it. Then settled down. Then Erin came from Grateful Doggies and got the 6 stacks of newspapers and the two big boxes of filled bones for the dogs! Finally broke for lunch at 4:30, but brought the horses in first, Indy as having a fit the flies were really getting to him. Tomorrow it's going to be even hotter, so they will probably be staying in for sure! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Whoop Whoop...my boy made HOTD today! I just happened to drop in and I saw his pic! Thanks so much everyone at HC for putting him in the spotlight. Today he got a workout in the round pen and then a good rinse down. He did great for not being worked in so long. Tomorrow he can get some treats!

Pellet stove is just a back up, or to use when we have those cold south winds. In the kitchen there is just 1 short heating pipe for a room that is 12 high, 15 x 13 and no insulation on the north walls, which is all built in metal cabinets. Original ones from when the house was first built. They always had a wood stove in the kitchen, and as I tear up the old flooring, I can see why they built right over the top....hot coal marks all over the floor.
Very hot today, not sure if it feels that way because I am haul manure from under the lean-to. Usually I do 3 loads then stop, today, I did 3, then peeled a ice cream pail of apples sliced, and went out and did 3 more wheelbarrow full. Running out of room, because Joe's old truck is parked there.
We put the steers and horses in the small pen by the garden, because grass there is getting so long. Nice and cool there because of the trees, but no electric fence, and one steers always manages to hook his horns on the wire, and take it down, so I have to be outside while they are in the pen. Just put them in, because another hour will have to start getting ready for Church.

After your comment about getting dark earlier, I looked at the clock when I finished feeding last night, and it was dusk, almost dark at 7:45. It's real open where I live, so we have light a little later than folks who live under trees.
Another sunny hot day yesterday. Finished cutting all the grass, ran an errand or two, cleaned out the kids' sink drain (it had quit draining), laundry and dishes and supper. Could've gotten in some groundwork with Allie or a quick ride on a QH, but felt very run down all day, so I didn't horse. I'm hoping to maybe get on Allie today and also start working on the shelter roof that blew off. My daughter informed me last night that she's in "desperate" need of a phone charger, lol, so I guess I'll be going downtown at some point too. Gotta coordinate going out around the college football traffic.
Well, hope you have a great saturday.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well hot and some humidity to start out, then the humidity got blown away with a cool breeze! But temp was 80F. Honey and I got in our 2 mile walk. Then I went and got Paige tacked up for a lunge and ride. She's moving better with the shoulders with wearing the Back On Track Shoulder Guard. Got some nice loping out of her too. Not the slow pleasure lope, but collected and the Ranch Riding lope. Felt good! Got them out for like 2.5 hours, breeze was nice and kept the flies at bay! But Indy's pasture is getting depleted! Moving him to another one tomorrow if it's not super hot. Sat, Sun and now Mon going up into the high 80's! UGH! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yep, the shorter days will be something to contend with till next spring. I don't like them either, but I feel like I get more sleep in the winter cause I'm forced to, lol. Glad you got to see him for a bit though.
Still not much here except the never-ending to-do list. The horses are fine though.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. WOW you had cooler temps than we did! So glad that Koot is happy in the big pasture now! Sounds like fun, a nice trail ride with your friends! Well it got hot and humid today! Honey and I got our walk in a little later than normal this morning, but was still 75% in the shade! We did our 2 miles. Then I went and hit Wally World for groceries, want to make something over the weekend in the crock pot and needed just about everything! Got home and the truck was reading 82F, so I turned them out right away! But it was a little humid and very little breeze, they only lasted about 2 hours. Bugs were a pain! So in the barn in front of their fans! Hoping to ride tomorrow late morning, and hope it's not as hot! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,

That's great that you got the shed put together without much trouble. Is your hubby handy? And glad Koot and mare are getting along. You know he'll love having a bigger space as well as a buddy to interact with. It'll be so good for him. Did you get to see him last night?
I did do a little 10 min ride on Gracie last night. I really need to get back to Allie, but she has to be tacked up and have a lot of groundwork before I ride and I don't have that much time. Sweet Gracie, I just get on with a halter and lead rope and I get a ride in 10 or 15 mins. We have a game going. She knows the end of the ride is flexing her head both ways laterally as well as vertically at a standstill. So I've been trying to sneak the reins off her neck from where they're resting looped over her withers, and I get them maybe a 1/4 inch off her neck and she tucks her nose in. Got all kinds of slack still in the reins. It's so funny, she's nailed it every time. It's her way of saying, "are we done yet?"
Well, gotta get the day moving. Hope you have a great thur.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. I know, I hate it getting dark earlier, it's like just as I finish night time feeding, usually about 7:30, it's dark out! Pretty soon have to put the outside lights on for feeding! Glad that you're having cooler weather too! How's Koot doing with his new girl friend? Are they sharing the pasture like good roomies? Well it was a good day! Weather wise too, but a little hot, but some breeze! Went down to the Acme and Greg donated about $400 worth of small and large filled bones for the doggies! They will be great for them in their crate during the day to chew and play with! About 60 of them! WOW! Got home and Honey and I did our walk, about 1.75 miles as the humidity was getting to me a little. Then I mowed the lawn, poor mower is blowing oil worse each time! But I got it done! Then got the kids out for a couple of hours, flies were a little pesky! A few of you asked about the hock injections. Yes it depends on the horse and how long they last. I've been lucky to get about 18 months out of them. They do both hocks and all three joints, lower, middle and upper. It's just like me getting my knees injected, same stuff! Went to visit Kevin and Winter, Winter gets her sutures out tomorrow and off comes the cone! She was kissing my like crazy! Loves her Aunt Marion! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Dominic should be a good driver, likes to tease alot. We had thunder and lightening storms early this morning around 4 until 8. Everything is wet outside, so worked up stairs getting down fall decorations and going threw them. I find such treasures. I decorate simple, mostly natural things like pinecorns, leaves, brown jars, colorful rocks and of course my little critter statues like the squirrels, and fall birds. Worked a bit on cleaning Lillie's pen, which seem to have grown. I stake her out each day so she can keep grass and clover down. Picked lots of nearly ripe tomatoes, and still need to cook the beets I brought in.

Yep, hate it. A friend of mine said the best way to go was to contact Utilization Review at the Hospital and sic them on the insurance co. Didn't realize it, but she said they are now denying almost 100% of claims.

We had rain yesterday, nice today, but very chilly early this morning, and I think rain tomorrow. I listen, but sometimes, it goes in one ear and out the other, and forgets to stop inbetween. :)
Still working on cleaning under the lean-to, only take out about 3-4 loads a day. Have to find a new flower bed to make, but thinking about redoing the one around the telephone pole. Too much grass is growing there. So tomorrow will try to dig out some of the plants, and start that bed over. Long day today, my eyes are tired. Dominic is sick now with the flu that Mike had, we went to Phillips to pick up his school work for him. Didn't have much, and brought some food for him but forgot 7-UP, his Dad called a bit ago, said he was still sick.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. I know, the days are getting really shorter around here too! Totally dark by 7:30 pm. I hate it! But what can ya do! Well we got lucky and no rain, just some wind from Jose! It stayed east of us and on the coast mostly! Sun was even out part of the day while south and east of us got rains! So Honey and I did a 1.75 mile walk today. Then my day was the best it's been in a long time! Kayla came up and rode Paige. I had her groomed and tacked and just finishing lunging when she got here. OMG, she dropped the reins, I mean a pleasure drap in them and rode her, she moved beautiful! No marey faces, no tail swishing, no pinned ears, nothing but a happy face and licking her lips half the time when Kayla stopped to pat her on the neck! Yes, she agrees, hocks are a little sticky, so I'll have them injected the first week of Oct. Kayla's gonna try for once a week to come and ride her! I'm so happy! This will be the first good nights sleep in a long time! After that they all went out for a couple of hours. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Glad the shed is up and Koot is doing well with his new buddy. D*** insurance companies. Scott got a letter from Aetna today stating that he only had 5 authorized days of hospitalization, not 7. Assured him that they routinely deny at least part of 10% of all claims, and that surely his cardiologist was used to this kind of thing and would go to bat for him. He did have more than the normal amount of problems, but hate that he's worried about it - not good for him.

Putting up the shed together must have been fun, as long as one of you read the directions.
Dominic is a great kid to have around, because we can "discuss" things, but sometime he sounds like a 30 yr kid. We were practicing his driving skills, lots of room in the hay fields.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh that's great that you got the shed up so fast! I knew that Koot would love his new roomy! Glad that they are hitting it off so well! So it was so foggy this morning, I couldn't even see my barn from the house! It's only about 125 feet away! It did burn off and got a little humid early in the day, but then a breeze kinda came about! Honey got a 2 mile walk when I got home from the truck servicing. Then I just turned them out to enjoy the pasture time, as tomorrow we're supposed to get some of hurricane Jose along the coast with rains inland and some winds. If all goes well weather wise, Kayla that used to work and ride Paige a couple of years ago is coming up to work with her and I. She's really good and knows how to feel which leg if any that she could be off on, and is really good about feeling for hock issues. So I can't wait! Then we'll go from there on what's going to be the next step. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Everything is going well, although I nearly was ready to force Scott into the car and drop him off at the hospital. Didn't realize he walked down to the mailbox (it's nearly a half mile round trip) and he was very short of breath when he got home. Read him the riot act, told him to wait a couple of days before he walked that far in the heat. He got to keep some of his snacks, but was horrified at how much sodium some of them had (I don't buy them, he does).

Yesterday wasn't much fun around here. Got an email from the algebra teaher that there was unfinished work that would get 0s if not done by mon, so Madison and I spent 3 or 4 hours working, much against her will, on algebra. I got a few little chores done late at feeding time, but was otherwise inside all day. I did find a decent price on west nile/wee/eee vaccines and ordered them.
Well, headed to work today and tomorrow, so I'll probably not be on tuesday. Hope your week gets off to a good start

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope that you got the shed up and Koot made friends and they are now out in the pasture together! Well another nice day, up to the high 70's and finally got a breeze around noontime. A little humidity before that. It was hot riding in the indoor, temp in there was about 82, but not that bad really. Paige was good, just have to have that rear looked at, she will jog up really collected and long trot beautifully, but just don't want to collect at the lope that good. So that's telling me the hocks need injecting. Honey and I did a 2 mile walk again this morning. Kids were out for another 2.5 hours, pastures are being kept nice and trimmed! LOL!

How did putting the shed together go? How did putting Koot and the mare together go, lol? Hope all went well. Did your mom help you with all that?
I did go see Buck in the morning, figured I'd kick myself if I didnt. He has a totally different teaching style from the big clinicians in that he doesn't spoon feed you; you've got to watch and listen closely to learn cause he's only gonna show you once. The riders who wanted help got it, the ones who didn't ask for help didn't get it no matter how bad they were falling apart. But that's fair. I picked up a couple new ideas, things to try a little differently, and I got to practice on sweet Gracie bareback in the evening.
Got 2 big round bales bought for the winter, (need 2 or 3 more), trimmed little Cinni, did groundwork with Allie, and my friend came over and cut the risers for the deck stairs. Had a funny thing happen at feeding time: I was hooking the lead rope to Dee's halter when she decided to rub her head on me and somehow, the lead snap wound up snapped on her nostril, lol. Boy, was she surprised by that! In all my years with horses, I've never had that happen.
Well, headed to church. Still loving our "new" pastor and his family. We celebrated their 1st year with us back in august; can't believe it's been that long. Anyway, hope you have a great sunday.

I am afraid that I did not get to go to the Neilsville Horse Sale, The Banker left me enough money to the Church collection box, and he left me Dominic as my baby sitter. He knew Dominic did not want to go, because today is the 1st day of bow hunting season. But I did enjoy the day with Dominic.
Yesterday I had to check out Dominic deer stand, to make sure it was safe for him. Today he was down, and helped him feed deer, and of course just wondered around in the woods for a long while.
It was funny this afternoon, I ask him why he never wants to drive the truck, and he said something, like, GrPa keeps telling me everything I did wrong. So, I said, he's not here, just go drive around the lawn and back yard, well, 30 minutes later he is still driving around and acting like he was having alot of fun. Lawn has some well traveled circles on it. He even was backing up very straight, and going good around the backyard where there are lots of flower beds. I am usually the one who has to teach them to drive.....to nerve racking for his parents and Mike.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it went up to 79 today with a little breeze, but it was hot and humid in the indoor! So on went all the ceiling fans and door fans! Honey and I got in a nice 2+ mile walk in this morning. Then the arena was cooled off and I worked Paige out. I'm thinking she might need her hocks injected! They haven't been since Jan of 2016, so she's due! Went over to see Kevin. Stayed a while there and petted Winter! Got home and turned the kids out, they were out 2.5 hours and I noticed Indy being bothered by some flies. So got them in. Watched some college football, yep, I love my football.

That will be nice for you to have all his stuff where he is staying. Scott didn't get to come home today, hopefully tomorrow. Did pick up his prescriptions (except for the narcotic - will have to get that tomorrow.) He is feeling better every day, but will probably have another heart attack when he sees what his meds are going to cost. Thankfully, he said not to come up to the hospital today. It's only 6, but feel like going to bed already, am really tired.

That sounds like a good plan about introducing the horses while you're there a while to watch them. Think you'll have time to ride? Hope the shed goes up easily.
Got the shingles replaced on the barn yesterday, and let me tell you, I did NOT enjoy the experience. What looks low and gentle from the ground feels high and steep from on top. Most of the ones that blew off were from the overhang, and I'm not sure I'll replace those cause it'll need a new roof in the next year or two anyway. They had put several layers on the overhang so I think it'll be okay for now.
Still haven't decided if I'll go see Buck Brannaman. I've waited several years for him to come back to this area, but I can only go for part of today out of his 3 day clinic, so not sure how much I'll learn.
Well, hope you have a good saturday

It should be fine, and it'll be great that they can then share the big pasture! Well, started out a little overcast and then cleared off! Never did get any rain today, yay! So Honey and I did a two mile walk this morning. Then I worked Paige out. While she was on the wall, I went and visited Kevin again. Came home and out they went! It was warm, 79 degrees, sunny and a breeze thank goodness. They were out 2.5 hours and then Indy was getting antsy! He wanted in, drink and poop time. Amazing how mine will not go potty outside and won't drink from the buckets of water either! Then I decided to wash and wax with that stuff (TechShine) my bit tractor! It's all ready for the harsh winter! Now to just get Jesse here to fix that gear oil leak for the 4 wheel drive and it's golden! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Mike is finally feeling better, went to another funeral today, feel sorry for his brother who lived in Milwaukee, (5-6) hour drive one way, who was up here at his son's cabin on Labor Day 4th, had to come back up for funeral last Friday, then back up here for this one.
Tomorrow Mike is going with Mikey and Jennifer to northern Michigan beautiful fall colors are nearly here, and will be a bit more closer to the lake. Traveling up to Munsing, right on the lake, and then coming home Sunday threw Powers where his sister lives. They have been planning this trip since they went last fall. I want to go to the Neilsvilles horse sale on Saturday, it is a 3 1/2 day event, but I know I should not go. Usually Mike goes along, so he can see the High Grounds, which is a VA memorial to all the wars, it is so neat to see. Look it up on the computer, but so much better to see it in person, it has such a weird sounds with the wind charms.
Another busy day. Friday vote for you, and hope your weekend is wonderful....that means being spent with your horse.

Yay that you got in a ride. Scott MAY be discharged tomorrow, Dr. wants to see his labs first. Now have a pharmacy problem, the one I want to use closes at 2, so will have to get them to call in the Rx and pick them up tomorrow. He was doing better today, and eating. Didn't go up to the hospital, had to make a major WalMart run and too tired to do both. Really feeling exhausted.

So glad you got to see Koot and ride a little. Don't you just love when they nicker to you? Gives you a warm fuzzy. And darn, gotta spend extra time out there putting up the shed this weekend, lol. Pity.
I finally got the shed door back on yesterday. What should've only taken 2 hours tops took 2 days (got the wrong hinges, so busy with other stuff, had to peel back the aluminum skin on the door, etc), but it's finally done. Hope to get around to the shingles on the barn today. The roof on the pasture shelter is gonna be the doozy. The horses are fine. Winter coats are just long enough to give them a deeper color and feel soft, but not shaggy yet. Boo-boos still need some attention but are granulated in, just need to regrow skin.
Well, hope you have a great friday. Take care.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh glad that you'll be there all the time on the weekend building the shed and filling it up, yes a great time to maybe try them together for the first time! YAY, Kevin came home about 6 pm last night. Was over there for a while with him today, he's upright and walking, slow but walking. Winter was very happy that daddy's home, but she came and sat with me for almost the hour I was there! He was jealous! LOL! Didn't get much done with the horses today, rain on and off all day long. Twice I tried to walk Honey earlier, we'd get about 100 feet and down it came. So I went to lunging Paige and doing showmanship with her. Indy got a spa day. Then they got hay and fresh water for lunch at 3 pm. About 4 pm my radar said I had about an hour of open time for a walk, so Honey and I did 1.75 miles. Sure enough a little while later, down came the rain again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

A Vote for You!!
Brake line broke on the car, when we came home from the funeral the other day. Just got it back tonight, because the other side needed fixing too. Not a regular garage/repair shop, because he works at a factory too. But he is a good guy, I always bring him some fresh eggs too. Yesterday, I did not even get on HC, by the time I turned the computer on it was time to go to bed.

I feel like a little kid, who wants to still play outside long after dark. Been so nice these last few days, I take back all the "nasty" things I said about Mother Nature. Been picking apples from drying for the winter for horses, washing jars for making apple jelly, (figured I would wait until a rainy day to do it), still working on cleaning under the lean-to and hauling it to the flower bed I am making. Been finding lots of baby trees in the woods, so they begged me to take them home, and replant them....I swear I can hear them calling me, maybe the wood fairies!! Went to a garage sale today, lots of horse tack, like I needed more, but did get a few nice deals. Spent my allowance for the rest of the year. Moved the guinea pigs outside a few days ago, so they can enjoy the breeze and fresh air. Lots easier to clean the cages everyday too, the plastic bottom ones, I have to wash and dry them. Once they have to stay inside again, will use woodchips for them. Sadie and the kitten, Precious, and very much interested in them. Sadie will not hurt them, but Precious is such a naughty little girl. Grizzly and Smokey don't even bother them outside.

Drive up was better today, but parking was a pain. Didn't realize how lucky I was to get a ground floor spot yesterday, finally found one on the 9th level. Seemed like it took as long to park and leave as the drive up. Scott had a minor setback this morning, had trouble breathing. Fluid in the lungs, they did a CXR and ultrasound, and put him on Lasix. Plan is for him to come home Sat, I'm a bit terrified. I think I know too much and too little. He's still not eating much, I asked if could bring him anything and he refused (they don't care WHAT he eats, as long as he eats, at least right now).

So how was King Koot when you saw him? Do they have him sharing the big paddock with their mare yet? Did you get to ride? Yep, I was wondering where you'll be keeping Koot's stuff. Does that mean you have to haul it back and forth every time you go out?
They finally got the power line fixed yesterday afternoon. Every time the wind blew, the tree would sizzle and smoke, but thank God it never went up in flames. I'm sure the neighbors were excited, they had been almost 48 hrs without power. My daughter turned in to the grumpiest thing ever just cause ours was out an hour and a half while they did repairs, and then instant smiles and giggles when the power came back on. Oh brother! She admitted to being spoiled, lol.
I'm dying to ride, but I'm so covered up with chores, continuing ed for work, repairs from Irma, I may never see a saddle again. Ok, that's an exaggeration, but it feels like it. Grrrrr. Maybe if I drive the truck more often to make up for it, lol.
Well, hope you have a great thurs. Take care.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh that's nice that you can bring his shed over and set it up with all his goodies in it. Well this morning and early afternoon were a running around type of day. First had my annual mammogram test. Then hit a thrift type store for a tarp for the wood when it gets here. Over to my orthopedic doc for my right knee. It's not seriously thank goodness. Inside behind the right knee left side is just the hamstring being pissed off from favoring the knee at times. Out side on the extreme right of the knee cap, it's the arthritis just acting up, so for now take an Aleve on days when I'm gonna work it hard or ride. Ordered the Synvisc One for both knees, but will probably only do the right knee on Nov 22, has to be 6 months since last injection or Medicare won't cover it. Got home and first stopped at Kevin's and walked Winter, she's doing well. Came home and turned the horses out right away, as it was cloud over and rain moving in. Then Honey and I went for a walk, cut short by rain drops, only did one mile. Then it stopped. Horses only got an hour and a half outside, cause then the real rain came! Lasted about an hour, and then the sun came out. Too late, not playing this game anymore, stayed in the house! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Scott is doing much better today. They are planning on discharging him from CICU to a "regular" room in the Heart Tower. He is also supposed to start PT/OT today (he's going to love that). He complained bitterly about breakfast today (institutional scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, and gluey oatmeal), but the worst was the decaf coffee (he's a BIG coffee drinker). Drive up was horrible, they were moving a house on the freeway (and did't even have Sunset in the back seat), plus 2 accidents. But at least I am able to make the drive, Scott said they lost 2 in CICU last night.
