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!

So you love your wedding pics? Can't wait to see some of them.
You're making a lot of memories in your new house. Decorating it for Christmas will be a lot of fun too.
I had a good ride on Allie yesterday morning. We did a good bit of loping and she even let me turn her a tiny bit without too much fuss at a lope. Would love to build on that, but have to work today. Oh well, that's life.
Hope you have a great hump-day.

Cimarron and I are doing OK. It's been really sunny and hot here, to a rather unpleasant degree, actually. The sun is great for riding, but I've been really busy with work, with my classes (just started again on Monday), and life in general. I've been out to see Cimarron, but I let a little girl from next door walk him around a bit on Sunday, which left me without time to ride.

Still, I'm hoping to see and ride him later this week. He's doing really well; he's just happy to consume all of the food in sight and be fussed over.

Anyways, I hope all is well with you! Best wishes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh I can't wait to see some more photo's! Yes, family gets first priority over Face Book! LOL! Another good weather day, little warmer, like 80 degrees with some humidity, but not that bad. Horses were out for two hours and then wanted in. I noticed some bugs starting to come around too. Got a load of pelleted bedding and grain for Paige. Got home unloaded it myself, took my time. Then mowed the lawn which was like a mini forest! Other than that, that's it. More weed whacking tomorrow and mowing, plus I will work with Paige, back in training with me! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

That's great that you're already getting your placemats and all ordered and together. The menu sounds good, do you want a couple more for Thanksgiving, lol.
I can't imagine no rain since May. Goodness. And you didn't get much in May, did you? We got some much needed rain last week, but this week is supposed to be dry and only in the upper 80s, some low 90s.
Well, hope you have a great tuesday. Take care.

Have to rush again this morning. Someone coming around 11 to buy some chicks and a few keets. Hope its enough to buy feed next week. Temps were in the 40's yesterday and very breezey, but good weather for fixing fence. Mike did most of it, while I make another pen for guineas keets...time to move them out of big rabbit cage. Willow finally got to go in with whisper, as ponies and all went into the hay field, now they have 10 acres to run and run they did, of course Willow limped most of the time after, but so good to hear the "thunder of hooves" even if they were little beats.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh I bet you're so excited for the wedding album tonight! I just know we'll see lots of photos on FB! Can't wait! Well the rain yesterday was 1.5 inches, but the ground was dry this morning, it really needed it again! Spent the late morning and half the early afternoon, cleaning out the trailer! Since the weather was delightful, 73 degrees with a breeze! And best was no bugs or humidity! Sinks scrubbed, toilet scrubbed, throw rugs out and vacuumed, floor washed, laundry done, all the horses stuff but away, and the feed, hay stall swept out! Now I just have to Pledge the wood cabinets and scrub the refridge, but I still have drinks in there for when I'm working on it. Horses were out for like 2 hours, they loved it, no bugs and just peaceful! Tomorrow it's a trip to Tractor Supply for Paige's food and pelleted bedding while the 10% coupon is still good. Then home and start to work with Paige again. Knee brace is back on, hopefully it'll support it enough I can get back to riding. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Meatloaf is doing a bit better. He was able to get up the stairs today, and took him outside for a couple of hours. Watched him closely to make sure he didn't sneak off, he was content to lie under the truck or on the porch. Was NOT supposed to rain, noticed the sky getting really and rumbling, so fed early. It came down in buckets.

We had a wonderful rain yesterday afternoon, about 1.25 inches. We sure needed that! But it kept me from riding and it's probably still too wet this morning. That's okay, if it's not too hot this afternoon, will ride then.
Well, hope your week is off to a good start. Take care.

PS. Just watched your wedding video. It was beautiful and looked like y'all had a great time. Loved it :)

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well today we packed up and left early. My knees said that they had it and I was overtired! Just can't get comfortable with that left knee at night time! So 4 and 5 hours of sleep is not enough for this ole'cowgirl! Besides rains were moving in, and it was an outdoor show! So rain is not my idea of fun either! LOL! Very happy to go Circuit Class Champion in Open Ages Mares with Paige, and just missed the Amy Sr. Mares by 3 points! Oh well next time! She did very well, hardly any screaming out of her at all. Indy was happy when I picked him up at Marissa's barn. Annie that works full time for Marissa said after he calmed down about missing his girl, he was a pleasure to be around and work with. He had daily turnout for a while in a semi-dry lot, but it had a big hay rack in it full all the time. So how much playing he did, I don't know, but he ate well, that's for sure! Good to be home, pouring rain now! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Sunday morning vote for you from Whisper, Willow and the little herd. Rain finally left....also left too much mud and big puddles everywhere, and very cool temps....has not been above 65 yesterday and should not get too high today. Nice for working outside, but today is Sunday, and we visit with my Mom for a few hours after dinner. My brother from Alaska is/should be home today, always nice to visit with him and his wife, Cindy and the rest of his family.

I went to the HOTD's page and from there to Sapphire's page. None of these have been active in forever, but you had left posts on Sapphire's page way back in 2010. So had Sing and herd. Amazing.
I had a great ride on Allie yesterday. She's really doing well in the roundpen, staying more relaxed. We are able to practice loping safely, along with some other things.
Well, hope you're having a great weekend. Take care.

Finally stopped raining. 2-3 days off, then 3-4 more days of rain. Have gotten about 3" the past week. Sure felt chilly this AM, but I refuse to wear a jacket in August. Kitty's not doing well, he won't even get up today. Medication the vet sent home doesn't seem to be doing any good. He's only 13. Ordered something (Arthro-iOnx) off the internet I'm hoping will help him. Will be giving it to Bo, too.

Raining again, and very cool. I have a sweatshirt on, (and all the windows open), plan on making banana bread, and oatmeal cookies, plus put something in the oven for supper. Looking out in the rain, I think of all the things I could be doing or plan to do. I will be working out in the shed, moving the turtle cage in for the keets, as soon as the rain stops. Mike is looking for stuff to do, before its time for Mass this afternoon. I like going to Church for Mass then, instead of Sunday morning.

Hi Danya. I'll have to look up your video. How many times have you watched it?
Your plans for Thanksgiving sound good. It's tough to make everything for the meal. What's on the menu?
Are you getting any relief from the drought yet? Has it still been pretty hot there? We had a little rain the last couple of afternoons, not much, but it sure has been nice. I had a good ride on Allie yesterday in the roundpen. She's giving her nose softer at the trot now, and because she isn't a fan of loping in the roundpen, she's ready to stop off my whoa. I'll work on steering at the lope a little when she's more comfortable doing it.
Well, hope you have a great weekend. Take care.

Sure was wrong about yesterdays temp, it was hot or maybe just because I was trying to get things done outside. Today it is raining, and should rain on and off all weekend. Maybe...that's a hint of maybe, I will get some house cleaning done. Dishes count for cleaning....maybe I will just leave the cobwebs up until Halloween...if stores can be putting out Christmas decoration early, I will just have to start early for Halloween. Actually, started a few fall projects already. Where the turtle pond was, I am filling that deep hole with veggie scraps and lawn grass that I missed when feeding the grass clippings to the pigs, chicks, and baby guineas....they think its candy, or act like it, when I sprinkle it on the floors. I have saved totes of very dry grass clipping for the winter to line the floors of chicken pens and nest. But I want to plant tulips and fall bulbs in the hole, then put a more flowers over the top....but I can not spell the flower./// I can see what I want in my head....hee, hee.

Not the first time that Sadie's turned on the water. I'm sure it won't be the last time, either. If she thinks about it, she'll do it, again. The only way to keep her from it is to keep her put up. I let her out to get some exercise. She's too sociable to stay in the corral all the time. She amuses me. Love and a it's raining vote.

Sorry I have not been on in quite some time. I've had some vacation time...enjoyed that very much. We made it through all the rain and the flooding. The pasture and barn flooded. It is starting to dry out now. Prayers for all those affected by the flooding. This was really terrible. Wishing everyone a great weekend!

I am trying to figure out a way to make stalls in the back of the shed. Can not be permanent, because never know what else has to be back there. We have a large wire cage, 12x14 x 6 ft high, for guinea, or now little chicks. Have large rabbit cages about 4ft off the ground, but still enough room for 2 12 x 12 pens made from gates or panels, but they are 5 ft high or better, and I have to crawl up over them or unhinged them. I keep think of making them smaller with a wooden gate on hinges. Ponies do not have to be in all day in the winter, but its nice to have a place to bring them in and brush or (treat them if needed.)
Finished cutting all the burdock or cock-burs down yesterday, have two large piles to burn after they are dryer. I know of a few here and there yet to bring over to these piles, but the area they were in, is a spot my son, puts all his scrap metal before he turns it in. Prices are very low right now, and its 60 miles just to turn it in, so he has to wait until it goes back up. Stay cool, our temps are just prefect this morning 59, and should not go up too much today.

Know your pics will turn out amazing. Normally, July and August are bone dry in this area, most of the summer rain occurs on the coast. Rained almost all day, cancelled the farrier tomorrow. Had planned on putting Bo & Jazz in the stall (12x24) while we did Cisco in the aisle, but didn't realize that Scott had dug up the stall searching for the leak. With 100% chance of thunderstorms tomorrow, would have impossible to get them done, so rescheduled for next week.

The next couple of days the high for this area of Wisconsin will be in the 60's, not sure what the low will be, but you can tell fall will be coming soon. Hopefully, all the baby chicks will be putting on some fat soon.
Dominic my grandson is here again. If he did not have sports at school, I am sure he would live here. Been working on some craft type things, mainly a wooden board, which he stained, and then drew some drew deer heads he wanted to paint on, but I helped him transfer his ideas on to thin wood, and I cut them out on the skill band saw. I am glad he did not make it into a "30 point buck", like the song they play in deer hunting season. Plan on cleaning out the rabbit cages and chop down more burrdock, my two piles are really big, and my hands are just as sore. Never seem to remember to wear gloves.

Glad Koot will still have some buddies. Horses don't generally like being alone, you're right.
The road maintenance crew were back again yesterday with all their big noisy stuff. I was on Allie when they arrived and she was curious about it all but not spooky. Good girl. We did more loping with bending and backing thrown in as well. And a hosing off afterward.
Well, off to work today and tomorrow. Hope you have a good couple of days.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Oh wow, I bet you're excited for the wedding album to come in! You're lucky, no humidity, or at least not much at all by you! Well we're all packed and ready to go. Just have to put the grain in the trailer, didn't want that sitting in the hot humid sun all day! Sure gonna miss Indy at the show. He's doing a sleep over at Marissa's barn to save me on the cost of his stall! Stalls at this show are $125! So Marissa said bring him and his grain and hay over and he can have Paige's winter stall, it's still waiting for her! LOL! Got them lunged today in the indoor with the fans on. Humidity was worse today, sure hoping that this storm that we had about an hour ago cools things off! Otherwise, it'll be halter and showmanship for me and no riding! I won't ride her in that heat! No sense killing her or myself! Not worth it! Well we'll be back on HC on Monday. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

good to hear from you! Cliff is adding the sides to the top cover and framed the north side, so we will put up the north wall when the weather permits. We will add the east wall the end of Sept. He will then put the metal all the way around. We are using the materials that we salvaged from the other barn for his stall. We had to buy 2- 16' 2x6's so I thought that was good on the money side so far. Work has been busy from evaluation time, cleaning of a unit here that was refurbished to house our rehab unit from the other campus, moving the unit from the old hospital campus to this location. Our other campus is closing for good. It was first opened in 1920! Plus all the other things like totally high census! Have a wonderful day ♡

I know how busy with live can get...just enjoy it.
Morning temps have been in the 50's and sure feels good, but by afternoon its in the 80's. If I can get some of the hard jobs done in the morning is better. Yep, no one wants to go to the Ladysmith Hospital if they can help it. Now, Mikey has a appointment early Sept. for MRI on his foot/toe to make sure infection has not spread....same infection Ladysmith said was not there....but his friend sent me a message, that they took off the big black scrabs....about small dime size, and his toe nail, and his toe now looks like a real toe. She said it looked good to her. So now I pray some more.

Hi Koot & Danya, Don't know if I'm gonna be able to vote and blog any more friends. Either HC or my internet is going nuts! Keeps timing out big time! Like over an hour to vote and blog 5 horses! UGH! here's a vote for ya. Well so much for the cooling off! It was a little better around noontime, only about 80 and a mild breeze. So I opted for turning them out rather than working them. They needed pasture time and mental time! Lasted about 75 minutes and the breeze left, humidity set in with tons of flies! The two yella ones were running like nut cases! Got Bullseye out of the way, he was in the walk to barn pasture. Then got Paige, she was hot and full of flies, poor Indy was the worst, he sweats so easily! I let them drink and then took them up one at a time of cold hose hoof! Finished that and decided that Bullseye is really due to have his feet trimmed. So got out my tools and cross tied him right next to the fan. I worked up a worse sweat! But his little hooves look great! Mowed two pastures, just about done with things and getting ready to leave on Wed for our last horse show! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

We've actually, temp wise, had a cooler than normal summer. It's the humidity that has made it so awful. Yesterday a cold front came in, much lower temps (even 70's) for a bit and rain. Loving the cooler temps and the fact the lawn looks it usually does in May - so green. Enjoyed watching the Freestyle Dressage this AM - they are all so amazing.
