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!

Koot's mom, Danya's bday: July 1!

I do tons of flexing from the ground and from the saddle, and she's very soft there. It's just that as we add speed, she gets more resistant. She's gotten pretty good at the walk and trot, so now it's time to work on the lope. That's a good idea though. I'm using treats to try to teach her to bow.
Goodness, it's like someone turned the faucet on in your neck of the woods. You need the rain, but it's hard to be patient about horse time. Hope you can get some Koot time before the rain returns sunday.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well the rain has held off till late this afternoon. YAY, so I got them to the indoor without any of us getting soak n wet! Paige go lunged in the bitting rig and then a few minutes of showmanship. Indy and Bully got to free run. Everyone got a good spa day too! Then it was shower and rest for me. With the temps being in the 40's during the day, my sinuses aren't really acting up. I'm happy about that! Yay, Indy didn't use poo for a pillow last night! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Sunset is now wearing her halter. There were a couple of minutes of snorting and dancing around (evidently she knows a halter from a leadrope), but then she just stood quietly while I put it on. Didn't do anything else, will get her up tomorrow, hand graze her and do some grooming, maybe start on some groundwork Sunday.

Oh, that must have been funny, Indy following you "thinking" he would get left overs of peppermints.
I think it is raining everywhere. It is sort light rain more mist at times. At least, I can see that Harry, is getting more filled out, when he is wet you can see his top line and what shape his muscles are in.
Tristan is suppose to come home today from Eau Claire, where he is going to linesman school, and then tomorrow heading to Wausau to celebrate Camille's 14th birthday, her Mom's and Tristan is on the 24th. Side roads are icy, but highways OK.
If you go on my Facebook page, I have so bridle ID with charms that I brought for Christmas gifts, and then yesterday the ones came for Dave's honor. Some what necklaces and other bracelets, and keychains. The smaller ones, I am going to finish for the younger kids. They have a saying on "God has You in his Arms, But I have You in My Heart, along with his birthday and name, plus then Angel Wings and a Beer Cap Charms, some have cross charms. I have a link to her FB pages, very reasonable prices. I did put up a few pictures, but not sure if anyone could see them, I must have did it wrong. I will see if I have time to put them on Whisper's page later.

Yeah, her temper tantrum kinda caught me off guard, she had been trying so hard on everything else and being really good. But she HATES to give her nose, even to the tie post. Sigh.
Don't know where my day went yesterday. Didn't get the chicken coop cleaned or any rides in. Errands, a little cleaning, a little homeschooling, and a guy came to fix the gas logs in the fireplace. But I was kinda bummed about not riding.
We're getting a little rain this am, then I think it'll clear out. We still need it badly, so I'm happy to hear it on the roof. Off to work. Hope you have a great friday at the barn.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Isn't there someway to build up his stall so it won't flood? Standing in that wet muck can't be good for his feet or his health. Well another overcast cloudy day, but at least got to 42 F degrees. Filled my several boxes in the garage with firewood. Since rain is predicted for all day Friday! Got some hay to the barn too! Lunged Paige and did showmanship practice again. Indy got to free play, but wouldn't leave me, I had a peppermint in my mouth and he thought he could kiss me for it! And he once again used a pile of poo for a pillow! Think I might just buy him a real pillow and be done with it. LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Sounds like the drought is over. Really nice session with Sunset today. Was able to rub the lead line all over her, loop it over her neck and muzzle. Expecting to get the halter on her tomorrow. She even stayed with me a few minutes after she finished her feed, seemed to enjoy getting rubbed on.

Stopping by with a Thursday afternoon vote! Copper and Darby are both really muddy! Well Copper was muddy but I groomed him and scraped his SUPER muddy hooves! I want it to dry out soooooo bad! I purchased Copper a new breast collar and headstall that are blinged out! They're really cool. When I try them on Copper when it's dry I'll get a pic of him in them:) how are you doing? Voted! Have a wonderful day and rest of the week! ~Brooke and Copper~

Yeah, the mud can be a mess in winter, and take forever to dry out.
Our warm morning turned in to a sunny warm day, up to 80. It was so surreal, like we had slipped into a coma and woke up in april. I kept looking for easter things at the grocery store, lol.
I did get to ride Allie yesterday and it's dry enough to safely work on loping. She threw a big toddler tantrum about steering at the lope so we worked on that a while and ended on a better note. Also practiced a few steps of sidepassing down the fence and backing. She's getting better and better at those. Overall, a good ride.
Well, hope you have a great thur. Take care.

A heavy rain storm is predicted for Thursday through Saturday. My hay shed's developed a leak, so I put a tarp over the roof of it. I hope there aren't any winds. Going to pick up an extra corral panel, or 2, when I can. At least Sadie will be happy. She'll get to roam the back of the property. Have and awesome day. Love and a vote.

Hi & a vote,

Looked like Koot really enjoyed his Sunday fun day getting out. Can't get over your green grass in January.
We had overcast all day, no rain. Didn't ever get any horse time, got hung up doing percents in math. On a good note, did get time to feed in the evening because the doctor's office wanted more money up front than she had, so we came home earlier than expected. I generally try to leave the late afternoons free so I can feed and make supper. Will try again for horse time today, depends on homeschool and I need to do grocery shopping.
Well, that's a lot of words to say that not much is going on, lol. Hope your wed is a good one.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well not much got done today! Did decided to go grocery shopping today cause of the rains! Got home and my hayman had been here took out a load of that bad weedy, dusty, smelly hay. But they forced the big door shut and bent a piece of metal on the bottom track! I couldn't shut it all the way or re-open it! And of course by then it was raining hard! Hack saw to the rescue! Didn't need that 1 by 1.5 inch of metal anyhow! LOL! Then of course the rains really got heavy, so it was just give them lunch and fresh water and forget about dragging them to the indoor. They were all nice and content in the barn. Tomorrow's another day of possibly more rain! We'll see what gets done! I really don't want these sinuses acting up and me getting sick again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well when my equine dentist says 9:30 am I'll be there, he wasn't kidding. Right on the dot of 9:30 am! Paige and Indy were good to do and their teeth weren't that bad at all. Bullseye was his usual stinker self! Only thing he hates in life, having his teeth done! When Paul finished up, I brought Honey out to meet him. At first she barked and wouldn't go near him. 5 minutes later she was sniffing him and then eating doggie cookies from him. She's really coming along great! Didn't get much done, as I started with another sinus headache again today! GEEZZZ! This cold just kills my sinuses! And now tomorrow a freezing sleet and rain forecast! Oh well, just have to wait and see. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Friends from the Pacific Northwest, what a winter we are having, there's been snow on the ground since early Dec, and it still snows on and off, weve had almost 5 feet of snow, it has settled to 18 inches now, and we are in for a big warm rain towards the middle of the week, kinda nervous its gonna be a huge mess, Lilly and the Goat boys said they are done with winter, hahah I still manage to get them out for a walk just about everyday but it is only down our plowed driveway , Lilly has made lots of snow angels the temperature for the last three weeks has not gotten over 25* usually we hang around 19* this winter is really wearing me out packing water, we froze up for 4 days and had to use snow and snow melt, now that was a challenge, the barnyard and I are ready for some fun warmth and riding time, God Speed to everyone, love Suz, Lilly and the Goat Boys

We had a new priest, from Florida, but he was raising money for Haiti. My Mom said they have been raising money for Haiti, since she was in school, and she is going to be 01 yrs old. Makes sense, they probably use the Church as their income. Mom said they use to save used stamps, and the Sisters would sell them to collectors, and then gave the money to the poor.
Nice outside was 4 above, but should warm up to high 20's or even 30. We got up to 19 yesterday, but with that Mr. Sun, it felt warmer.

Neighbors, I wish mine lived more than the mile away, because it seems, near every summer evening when I am riding they are either shooting their guns or fireworks, and if one horse gets jumpy then they all do.
I would love to have a wood cook stove, have to learn to burn things all over again,...just got that part down just right. :)
Nice outside this morning even if it -8. Frosty the Snowman, must have been busy all night long, painted all the trees and bushes in frost, and with the sunlight they sure sparkle....Mike said they were my diamonds, and then the slight breeze they fall down and leave giant flakes all over the ground, which lay thee and sparkle. Sun is out so day will be bright and warm....Whisper, Willow and Mistic are standing sleeping against the tin shed to warm up.
Dominic got to spend the night, so frying a lot of potatoes, bacon and cheese, which only Grandma know the secret recipe for it....love!!

I was hoping to ride yesterday but about the time I went out, my neighbor started cutting big limbs in his front yard, which is right across from the riding ring. The limbs falling really startle the horses, and in fact, they were well away from the road eating and still scattered in all directions.
Well, hope you have a great sunday

Rained some on Saturday. Was going to let Sadie out but went in her corral to see how the ground was. Not slippery, so her butt is still in it. Lol. She's mad. I know it's because she thinks she's suppose to be let out. It's amazing how much attitude she has. Gave her some carrots, loved on her, and now, I'm sending you votes. Love and hugs.

Glad you're getting moisture, sorry it's all happening at once. Yep, tax season is here. New mare, step by slow step. Today she walked up to me from about 200' when I called her, then really looked at me and started to tremble. Talked to her, gave her a few carrots. Won't even attempt to halter for a few days - have ordered a break away halter for her. Maybe I can lure her to the round pen with a bucket of feed when we get a few nice days, maybe get her to join up so I can halter her. The pen she is just a bit to big.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well started out cold and sun for a couple of hours. Got overcast then. I had a show meeting to go to at Marissa's for our show season. It was held at the local Italian Rest. and we had a Pizza luncheon/meeting. Lot of new ideas, some good, some I don't agree with! But have to go with the flow! And don't ya think, just as we're leaving, it starts snowing! We rode over with Marissa, got back to her barn, 5 minute drive, and hung out with Laura and her mom Jill a few more minutes, like 20! Go outside, and everything is covered in white! Not fun for me. Major roads were brinned, but not my home town road, that was fun with the dually! But home safe and sound. About 1.5 inches so far out there! Gave the kids lunch, 3 pm on time and came in the house and fired up the woodburner and hung out with Honey! Mo did make an appearance, but I was to slow to get to the barn and let him in. He's still out! Hopefully held up out of the snow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes

Yep, getting to be that time of year again and I know you get crazy busy. Plus school this year. Wow.
We were talking at work how northern Cal has had sooooo much snow this winter, maybe enough to reverse the drought you've had for so long. I guess you're getting the liquid form instead. It does make it messy, but so needed.
Sorry I don't get by when you haven't been on in a while. My search horse channel option used to let me find members, but now it only responds with "option not found", even if I have their member number. So if someone hasn't been on in a while, I can't find them anymore unless I search back through pages of old blogs. Ugh.
Well, hope you have a good weekend. Take care.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well the sun was out but so was the winds! Very gusty! And the temps dropped over 16 degrees in a matter of hours! Did get them to the indoor for some exercise, but the doors were banging and I wasn't about to ride! Erin, who is partners with Steve where I adopted Honey from, stopped by today. She couldn't believe how awesome Honey is looking and how well she listens to me and just hangs out! Honey did many sit stays to show off. And she gave Erin a few kisses too! It was a fun day for Honey! Now if Mo would just come home tonight! He took off yesterday during the daytime in the nice temps, he'll freeze tonight out there, going down to 20F! I'll be calling for him till whenever, hope he hears me! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well once again the weathermen lied! At least I didn't wake up to the snow and sleet, although maybe tonight they are saying now. But they also said that today's high was going to be 35F! Well it started out as 7F and only got to 25F when I worked out the horses. And the sun didn't hang around more than an hour! But Paige got lunged and showmanship. Indy got lunged and Bullseye got free play time. Hopefully they are right and the temps will be going up for a few days. I'd love to turn the heat off in the barn. Oh that electric bill is going to be a truck payment next month! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
