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!

DRIED CABBAGE & OAT FLOUR....
I can't begin to tell you how much support this woman has been, her name is Cynthia, here is her website, if you get time check it out, just click "ulcers" at the top of her page http://www.lunatunesfreestyles.com . I have chatted with her thru email, spoke with Cookie yesterday he said go with this, he said "never met a feed rep yet that would tell you all your horse needs is good hay and water" keep on the full dose until he is comfortable with the new diet. Cabbage has tons of nutrients, eg. Vit C, L-Glutimine both are healing to the stomach and gut. We can do this, I want my horse to be happy. I dried a full head and got about 3 cups, he only gets 1/4c twice a day, so it is not too bad, just time consuming. Have a great day, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

got an awesome ride in today. rode Clay and he was really good! we jumped logs, ditches and jumped a ditch onto a bank:) I felt so sorry for Dash, when I went out to catch Clay, Dash runs up to me nickering and started nudging my arm like 'let's go mom!' I felt so bad leaving him there and taking Clay! But I will ride Dash tomorrow and hope he forgives me for abandoning him today

its raining here today, so no riding, but i have a ton of stuff to do inside anyway. ponied Allie again yesterday, but she kept trying to trot past us, which made BJ try to bite her harder, and there was something out in the field that was making him nervous ( i didnt see anything, but my opinion doesnt matter). so it wasnt as smooth a session, but Allie's groundwork is getting better, and i was able to lean over her from on top of BJ and slap the saddle and flap the stirrups, so that was good. definitely a work in progress, but we arent in a hurry.
hope you get some good weather and Koot time this weekend. take care.

BREATHING A BIT EASIER...
Good Morning, I am feeling a bit better, I found an amazing website with some fabulous info on ulcer diets, I have been suffering from information overload, but I think I have finally sorted thru this and started Charlie on some new "healing foods" One item that is particularly healing is dried cabbage, which of course, can not be found in Canada, so I borrowed a dehydrator from a friend at work and I'm drying my own. Pumpkin seed is another good food as well as oat flour and rice bran. He is now off ALL of the grain feed that he was getting and he is slowly starting to eat his new stuff, as long as he keeps eating his hay we are good. He is a bit picky and doesn't except new readily... This will take time but I'm told that if I hang in, I will have a happier horse, that is my goal. Love and a vote Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. I bet when you do get those chilly 30's nights it feels like about what Zero would to us here. Do you have heat in the houses there? What a chilly but yet productive day today. Indoor was only holding at about 32 when I worked with Paige and then free playtime for Mr. Indy the puppy dog! LOL! I did de-cobweb most of the barn with the shop vac today. Didn't get three stalls done, but the center aisle ceiling is done, it was getting pretty webbie! LOL! I have to usually do it about three times a year to really keep it nice. But for some reason, from Aug till now it got really bad. Sprayed some peppermint water around, read on FB spiders hate it! Well going down again to the low 20's tonight! Have the Christmas party at Marissa's tomorrow from 10 to 2 pm. She's got Reindeer games for the kids and she said some adult stuff too! Oh boy, told her she had better have senior things for me! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

We have a Mass said for Dave, on his birthday and the day he died. We try to all get together at the cemetery, then go to Church and then out to have supper together, or sometimes at our place. I hate those winter rains, every one of the outside animals, get wet, then when it starts getting colder, they get icicles on their fur/hair. Wish it would just rain when it is suppose to....like spring and summer.

Seems like it's raining everywhere.
Chilly, dreary, foggy day, a little more rain last night. Cisco is disgusting, will try and get a picture of him and post it. Will change feed over 10 days or so, need to empty one of my garbage cans so I have somewhere to put it, then set up the scale to weigh it.

♥ I am off work this weekend. We pick up Whiskey today at 2pm. We will all feel so much better when he gets home. His eye needed to be doctored 2 times a day is why he stayed so long. I go to work before the sun comes up so I would have only been able to get it doctored 1 time a day. His final doctoring will be tomorrow. I do plan to ride Deacon at Lake Whitney tomorrow. I am hoping Lizzy will go so Rocket can go as well. I will phone vote everyone Sunday though so please vote each day and silent votes are so welcomed as well! Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

well, unexpected rains. that's a switch from this past summer, lol.
i ponied Allie off of BJ yesterday for the first time. she resisted a little at first, and BJ kept trying to bite her, but they did well and im proud of them. just kept it at a walk while they are learning. i also laid over Allie with my whole weight for the first time. she moved around a little, but handled that pretty good too.
well, cant believe it's only 6 days till Christmas. hope you have a good friday.

Still battling this cold. The worst of it is over. I didn't ride. It was late when Stephanie made it over. Almost dark. When Stephanie rode Sadie, I went inside, because I was too much of a distraction. Sadie behaves much better when she doesn't have an audience. She concentrates on what she's suppose to be doing. As soon I walked outside, she tried to come to me. Stephanie said she's a momma's girl. I say she's spoiled. Lol. Have a blessed weekend. Love hugs and a vote.

I got some riding time in these past few days. I'm working on walkover ground poles elevated on one end. gets them to use the back muscles for a good stretch. been muddy in the outside arena so trying to have fun in the small covered arena. I bought some solid tire tubes that don't need air. going to try them in the pony cart so I don't have anymore blow outs!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh that's good that even with the Christmas parties you'll make time for Koot. I know he'll appreciate that. Well it's dropping in temps now. Today was very overcast and some wind, only hit a high of 35 and chill factor of 27. Tonight going down to 20, guess winter is really on it's way now. Got another nice ride in on Paige today. Indy and I played, he's such a goof and a big puppy dog! Bullseye had to be chased by the lunge whip, he wouldn't leave my side either! Had to run to a couple of places, took Beast out again, that thing has guts! Had to pass someone poking along, geezz almost got whiplash! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Rain, rain, rain & mud. Imagine you are the same!
Disgusted with feed choices, local feed store never called me back, was cruising the feed bags at TSC and decided to go with Purina Enrich+, fed at the rate of .1# per 100#. Then had to get a kitchen scale so I can measure it. Will top off feed with timothy pellets, Meg may need some extra feed, can feel ribs and don't want her any thinner. Cisco and Nugget still on the porky side.

☆ As I have mentioned before, I have learned so much with Deacon and of course Whiskey & Rocket. Each horse has brought knowledge to me that has its own value. I think we all carry a special place for that 1st horse that is hard to describe ♥ the 1st year ½ I went trail riding, I experienced penning & cutting cows but my favorite has always been trail riding. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

Well, I've got a fun weekend planned despite the chilly weather! Some trail and road riding with a couple friends and coon hunting Saturday night! I decided to ride Clayboy this weekend; my cousin rode him bareback after not being ridden for about a year, and he was very hyper. So I think he should get ridden more. He was really good other than that. Hope y'all got some horsey time in!

Holidays are always great, even if I have to pretend. Kids seem to forget so fast of who is here and who's missing. But they all remember. We go out and have prizza on Dave's birthday, because that was his favorite food. Weather is starting to turn colder again, after a week of solid foggy.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well like you said, you really need the rain, so I guess you can't complain to much, but yes, I too feel sorry that Koot can't get out for exercise. So it's like 39 degrees when I got up at 6 am, then the sun came out beautiful, only for a few hours, but the temps went to a whopping 49 degrees! Then when I walked out of the indoor after riding Paige, it's lightly raining, they didn't call for that! But it was still holding at a warm temp, so who cared. Indy and I played ball today. He's just to cute, can't load the darn video cause HC video section is still not up and running! GGRRRRRRRRR! Played some more with the Lap Top, really trying to learn how Windows 8.1 totally works. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.

Well this week has been pretty interesting...learning some new things at work, won some concert tickets to Neal McCoy also at work. We get our Christmas bonus this week, yeah! Also this week when we got home from the pasture there were people on horses at our neighbors house. We went over to see and we knew them from when we kept our horses in the back of our subdivision. One of the horses was Ace's sire named Gunner. We were amazed at how much they looked alike. Gunner is still a stud and has the same disposition as Ace. Leaving a vote. Enjoy your week.

☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day!

Here's a vote from Buddy! I know I haven't been on again in a few days, but I went and brought Buddy home! We went to get him on Tuesday, and ended up quite a few hours behind schedule.. 8 hours behind actually. The roads were good when we left, and terrible on our way back. We were lucky we left Amberlea when we did, otherwise we would have been camping out at a rest stop somewhere. The only terribly bad part was when we were about 100 KM away from our destination. We had a semi truck driver flag us down to let us know that the road was pure ice, no matter how slow you went you were sliding towards the ditch. We stopped at the bottom of the little hill to see if the trucks in the ditch were okay and we were sliding towards them so they were telling us to just keep going and then call 911 when we got to cell service.

In addition to the roads being crap, I lost my engagment ring somewhere along the way! :( But, Buddy is here, and I am happy for that. He seems to be settled in at the new place and liking it. He's in one of the little barns with one other horse, so I've decided to keep him on indoor board.

My Scentsy business has started off to a good start, I've just got to keep at it and find some more customers other then my sister, and myself! So if any of you, or someone you know are in Canada and would like to order I'd be happy to help! :D In other news, Rob goes for an interview on Tuesday in Calgary, so he's flying there. Which means I get to spend the day with my sister and niece and some friends until he flies back and I pick him up!

The weather here has been pretty mild and I think it's supposed to stay that way for the remainder of the month. I hope it's been nice for everyone else as well! I've added pictures of Buddy in his new place as well!

-Buddy & Jasmine
