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, left a vote. Picked up the last of my things at the old barn today, and said my goodbyes. It was bittersweet. Amber and I accomplished some "firsts" there that I will never forget.

The new barn is great. The arena is one of those coverall ones. Love the natural light, but man, it is 15 degrees hotter in there than it is outside. Great for winter, but not the summer! LOL! I have to get up early and get out there to ride, or I just wilt with the heat and humidity. It is like a greenhouse, or even a sauna.

Farrier was out today. The epoxy fell out a couple of days ago, and she was very pleased with the results. She got a trim today, then in 4 weeks, she will be back out, if they are still good, just another trim, and wait for the rain to do another epoxy treatment.

Off to bed, early to rise, so I can get a ride in!

Come visit me, Toby & Amber.

Slightly cooler this AM. Worked Nugget and Cisco, I think Meg is getting jealous, she kept butting in. Noticed 6 hummingbirds last evening, so put out an extra feeder, this morning there at least 8. Saved a young mockingbird (I hope) from the jaws of death, one of my cats had caught it and I managed to grab her and pry her mouth open. Cat NOT happy, bird flew off a few minutes later. Hope it is OK. Then (UGH) went grocery shopping. Cheryl & Cisco

Sorry for your sinus infection and having to miss the barrel races, best be smart like your being so Koot does not pull something or hurt himself, took allergy tabs this morning before work, I am about to sink under my desk, but it was either take them or sneeze my head off, plus like you I have had horrible headaches, oh well, gonna go to the coast for a family reunion leaving tomorrow, maybe the salt air will help me ??
rode Lilly last night in the arena and played with her she so much fun, gonna be off line from Friday-Tues to get some stuff done before fall sets in so have a great time with Koot! LV Suz and Lilly

Yes yes and yes, I will vote for ya Daliy! We are good, have not been riding much lately sine it's so hot. Rode English a couple days ago, he did great at loping on both leads, I was proud of him! Been having to do lots of rainmaker, his hooves are really dry. His cuts healed nice with that vetrycyn. It's magic!!! Well with jumping, he was great for a few days with lunging over it, but the all of the sudden the next day he just would not budge. Stranger huh? Awesome to know that your running for HOTM, love and a vote!

Good morning!! Sorry to hear you have been under the weather. Those sinsus things are horrible. That is a bummer about the show but I understand your not wanting to push Koot. Better to sit it out then end up with an injury that takes months to heal!
We are making hay this week so not much Butter time. He gets his grooming and carrots every night but no work which suits him just fine. :) We should finish up after work on Friday so Saturday morning I plan to hop no and ride around the proprty and they going to try a new trail in PA on Sunday. Everyone tells me they cut the trails back enough that we won't be ducking to make it thru so hopefully they are right. Otherwise we will be doing circles in the parking lot. LOL
Hope you are feeling better and have a wonderful day! We will be watching for your run in October and will be sure to vote.

Come visit me, Butter.

So good to hear from you, but I hate that you've been sick and haven't been able to ride. Sounds like you've had some nice time with Koot since then. Its a bummer you can't show in barrels, but you're making the right decision to take care of your horse. Not everyone would do that.
I've been crazy busy and seem to be getting busier, so I haven't had much horse time other than daily feeding and a little groundwork with Allie. Gonna have to dig my heels in and go ride regardless of what needs to be done.
Hope you and Koot get a lot of time to reconnect and ride. Take care.

Of course we'll be voting for Koot! Sorry about the sinus infection and that you'll miss the competition - better safe than sorry if you haven't been able to work him. Hoping to work Cisco in the morning, temps are finally backing off a bit and his pastern has healed. Vetricyn is amazing.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Sorry you had that nasty sinus infection! They are horrible! Yes, it stinks, but best to be safe than sorry. Busy day of running around today. Had to go and get my truck registration renewed and my drivers license was due too. Then stopped over by Marissa to make up a game plan for Paige at home now, what to really work on. Then mowed 2 pastures. It looked like it wanted to storm, so I waited, but too lone! 30 minutes after turning them out the thunder started and so did the heavy down pour. Oh the rain water made their coats so soft! When it was a light drizzle and it was still thundering, I ran down and brought them in. At least they had about 40 minutes of grass and playtime. Mostly eating now, Paige is done with the running, she said okay freedom feels good, but grass tastes better! Nicker Nicker! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The weather is nice, The rain here has dried up. Bugs are crazy, though. Put ant bait around the outside of Sadie's corral and put her nosy, into everything butt, back in. She's a busy one. She got into the other shed and drug out the containers Austin put in there. He took them out of the tack shed to make room to store hay. She watches everything and waits for a chance to plunder. Lots of love and a vote.

This is pretty much the worst couple of weeks of the summer, it is OK for me, but poor Sterly Girly has such a hard time breathing, inside with her fan and I actually gave her a couple pumps of Ventipulimin yesterday.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"Horses first, The rest Later!"

Fancy leaves a vote for you this morning.

Fatima has gone to a home where she will be working with teenagers that are learning to ride. The lady spent an evening with us to evaluate Fatima and this lady saw potential in Fatima. The next day, the lady came back for Fatima. Fatima did not want to go. I called when I thought they arrived home to check on her and Fatima was fine.
I did not have the same feelings of betrayal with Fatima as I felt when I watched Trigger leave. I felt happy Fatima would be getting some attention. I still miss Trigger but I am happy he is really loved by the small children. I have an invitation to visit him. I think I want to go one day during his lessons. I would love to see him with the children.

Have a safe and blessed weekend.
Love Fancy and Frances

Because of the flooding north of us, the river, close to my house, flooded, Tuesday night. I didn't see the water until I accidentally drove through it. Car's been fine until I drove to work, Friday. After I parked the car and went in, the car caught fire and is totalled. Devastated, heartbroken, but okay. A couple of people think it may have been a short in the wiring. Thank God that Austin was able to pick me up. Car's still in the parking lot at work. Rick won't get home until Wednesday. He's on vacation. Sending love as always and a vote. p.s. No word on the horses that were washed away in the flood.

We've had a lot of rain and flooding here in Arizona. We're okay here, but some towns, north of Phoenix, weren't so lucky. New River, Arizona, was hit so hard, pets and horses were washed away. I saw, on the news, that 2 of the horses drowned and women on horseback were searching for the other 2. I haven't heard if they were found, yet. So heartbreaking. Sadie's fine. We've had rain, hard Thursday morning, but no flooding at my house. Sadie's out of her corral, because it's slippery and mucky. To know Sadie, is to know she's happy. She was at the backdoor begging for carrots. Of course, she got some. Hope you're all doing well. Leaving love and a vote.

Here's a vote from Buddy! Yet again, sorry we haven't been on in about a week, it seems the only time that we have to get on is when I have my days off! I've added some new pictures of Buddy, and one of his tail. I love the colours in it, and I've been putting MTG in it lately to try and get it to grow since he has such a sucky tail (to put it nicely.)

I haven't ridden him in his normal saddle pad yet, but I'm going to do that tomorrow and see how he does. The barn owner has her last day of her kids summer camp tomorrow so hopefully I can manage to ride outside while all the kids are riding inside or are on lunch, just in case Buddy pulls some crazy stunt! If he his still a bit off I am going to try and take the saddle off and just ride him bareback. If that doesn'e help him then I will have to call Dr. Herbers when I get back from my vacation to get his teeth checked and floated. I know I need to get them done sooner rather than later as when I asked my aunty if they had ever been done she said they had not as they had always been good when she had checked them. And of course if having his teeth doesnt help then I will move on to try a chiropractor, as one of the other boarders at the barn plans on having one come out and said that if need be she will let them know there may be another horse that needs to be done. Hopefully it doesnt come to that!

I leave for my vacation on Sunday morning, but I should still be able to make it on to vote every few days at least! I'm bringing my laptop as I never really leave home for an extended period of time without it. I may be blogging later during that time tho. As much as I am excited to go, I am not at all ready to pack to go. I'm sure I'll forget something that I want to bring. As long as I remember to bring my saddle!

I hope everyone is doing well and the weather has cooled down and you can all enjoy some not so hot horsey time! I also hope the bugs are not as bad for you as they are for me currently! And here's hoping my ride goes well tomorrow!

Everet Shaw, who rode his share of great steer roping horses, told Hyde
that Blue was the best horse at Cheyenne that year. Hyde and Del both felt
that Blue started out of the box quicker and could catch cattle easier than
any horse they had ridden. The combination of Blue's athletic ability and
Del's training made him hard to beat. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

produced the stallion Gooseberry, Crow Creek (Lory's top calf horse), and
many good mares. Hyde and Dede then bought the other half interest in Blue
Valentine from Del. Hyde felt like it was a great privilege to rope steers
on Blue. In 1970 Hyde roped at his last Cheyenne Frontier Days on Blue. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**
