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.

HI Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well nasty rainy and then got really windy later on! Did in between the break in the rain get another 4 bales of hay to the barn and a bag of shavings for Bully! Went down my usual time to start to work them, and it was getting windy as heck out. So forwent the idea of saddling up Paige and just went with lunging and showmanship. Glad I did cause the gusts of winds were really bad! Just finished up with her and was getting Indy ready to take out and down came the rains like a giant bucket of water! So he never made it to the indoor. Rain and winds were horrible all afternoon and the temps are dropping! Going down into the teens they are saying tonight. Just lovely cause this will be a frozen mess of ice and mud out there! Oh the joys of winter! NOT! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well no sun till late this afternoon, but the temps hit 54 degrees! WOW did it finally do a job and melt off the ice! Still have a little left in front of the barn, but everything else is clear! Of course this is going to be to make more for Sat into Sun with 4 to 6 inches of snow possible! Got 6 bales of hay to the barn. Paige lunged and showmanship, Indy lunged and halter and some showmanship work. Bullseye free lunged. Then lunch of hay and fresh water for them. Honey and I got in a mile walk too! so productive day for sure! Possible rain tonight into tomorrow, then going cold again! Up and down like a yo-yo! Good news is, my new YakTrax are here! I'm ready! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well we got beautiful strong sunshine with a high of 35 degrees! Sure helped to melt off a lot more of that ice! I'd say the walk way to the barn is now 80% clear! YAY! From the barn to indoor is all clear now. Just out to the water dumping area is a big mess yet, but that's in the shade! So hopefully Wed with temps hitting the mid 40's and sun again, that will deplete a little more. Got the kids to the indoor for exercise! Paige was like BatChit Crazy on the line! Boy did she throw some good bucks in! Bet if felt good to her! Indy started on the line, then went and got free lunged! He too was full of himself. Bullseye was quiet and I had to chase him with the lunge whip! LOL! Lazy Ass! Literally! LOL! Then they got hay and fresh water for lunch. Honey and I got a little walk in, only about 1/2 mile total. But still felt good! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well not much more melted overnight even though the temps were in the high 40's! They did drop to 34 at morning, so that kinda froze it all up again! Spread another bag of ice melt down by the barn to the indoor, but as of 1 pm not enough melted off to get them to the indoor for exercise. So got another bag and laid that down again! Plus had to put some on the walk way down to the barn! Sun finally came out, but not long enough to make a big difference in melting it! And tonight it's going down to 15 degrees, so it'll freeze back up! GRRR! But made the best of it and got Bullseye all trimmed up, done for another 8 weeks or so! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains held off till later this afternoon! YAY! Actually spent the morning cleaning the house! Yes I said house, I hate house work! But the Honey hair was mounting! Got the tractor out and scraped off more of the driveway and gravel driveway, still has more ice, but not to bad now! Got 3 bales of hay to the barn, wanted to take another load, but it was slick going down that little hill and even the YakTrax weren't grabbing the softer snow and mush! So not chancing slipping and pulling my own tendons on my knees! Got the kids to the indoor for some playtime too! Well Lunging and halter work. Finished up with hay and fresh water for them at about 3 pm. That's just when it started to rain and it hasn't stopped yet! But last check out the window before it got dark, it melted off a lot more of the ice/snow combo out there! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well weather men screwed it up again! First two days ago they said 40% chance of snow today, then yesterday they said sun! Well it started out sunny for like an hour, then overcast and an hour later! SNOW! Snowed all day long, but that light slow snow, so only about 3/4 inch out there now! Tomorrow 60% chance of rain and Sunday rain all day, but temps will be in the mid 40's! So they kids got a spa day today. Lunch of hay of course and fresh water. Honey and I just hung out together all day long in the house! Just felt damp and raw, even with the wood burner going full blast, I just couldn't get the place as warm as I like! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well what a frozen tundra out there this morning! OMG! About 1/2 ice on top of the wet now kinda frozen snow, with what rain could make it to the bottom, was more ice! Was able to get the big gate open to the entrance pasture to the barn. So after it warmed up and some of the blacktop of the driveway was melting, I figured I'd give it a try! Got the tractor out of the hay barn and headed down to the horse barn with the York Rake dropped to break it up! Got out to the manure pile too, and then from the barn to the indoor and the pass through indoor door! YAY! But on the way back up, hit a heavy spot of ice and busted 2 teeth off the York Rake, so some fixing to do over the weekend! But was able to safely walk them to the indoor for some much needed lunging! Both were a little full of themselves! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well the snow came and left by noontime, but the bad news is that the 3 inches we got that was fluffy is now solid heavy crap with sleet and rain mixed in with it! Took the tractor out about 5 pm to do just the black top behind the truck and width of the driveway up to the road! Rest of driveway will hopefully get done tomorrow after the sun thaws it out a little! Going done to 15 overnight, so you know it's going to be solid ice! Kids got a good spa day today, deep currying and vacuuming for them! Lunch of warm water and hay! Then my lunch, crock potted some Sausage, Peppers and Onions over rice then. Yummy! So, I got a text from JW my regular farrier this morning! "I would like to thin you for choosing Shoofly Farrier in the past for your horse's care. However, I wanted to make you aware that I have opted to pursue a new path and will no longer provide farrier services. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause as you seek a new farrier. JW Goolsby." And there were plenty of people in our NJ Horse Group on FB asking about new farriers! So he has retired from everyone! Wonder if he got seriously hurt or health issues, he's not saying anything about why! Glad that I found Rob! I did have one other that is about 45 minutes away who I know is good, he's still on the back burner if I need to change over! Always something! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well woke up to it snowing! Only lasted a couple of hours and maybe 1/2 inch! Just enough to cover the ice so you had to guess where it was the worst when walking. Waiting on those new YakTrax and get an email today that they are on back order! Lovely! So by 1 pm the sun was out and melting off more of the driveway at least. I did get the kids out to the indoor, Indy and Paige both got lunged and Bullseye got to run free. I was able to open the main big door, so then after they got lunch and fresh water, I was able to get the big tractor down there and really fluff up the indoor! Then I used the bucket to scrape more of the lower end of the driveway and also the gravel side, want it smooth if I need to snow blow that part tomorrow! Main forecast is 4 to 7 inches, but then the local radio station said 3 to 5 inches! Heck I'd be happy with 1 to 3, but we know I won't be that lucky. And please let it stay as snow! No rain and sleet mixed in! But I doubt it! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well called Rob this morning while I was still in the barn and thinking about it. Said I have a question for you, please don't be offended or mad at me. First the horses were nice and sound and traveling great on both Sat and Sun when lunged, thank you! Now start out nice, then hit with the questions. I'd just like to know why you didn't par out much sole at all, and not much of a roll on the edges of the hoof wall. He said in this frozen ground and the ice clumps, he likes to leave some protection for the sole and coffin bone to avoid bruising. I did roll over the edges, maybe not as much as your used too. Okay thank you, makes sense about not removing a lot of sole. So with the 1.5 inches of snow and then sleet and rain, it first off killed my Dish Network last night, had to watch the game on the computer on the NFL channel! But at least I got to see the Eagles fly all over the Patriots, YAY! No one got out today for that same reason, everything turned to pure ice over night. Had to spread out a bag of the new salt to get the driveway cleaned up, even the tractor would not have been able to do it! Just would have spun my wheels on it! So they got lunch and fresh water and are fine. Hopefully tomorrow it'll warm up enough to get the to the indoor! As for Wed, 4 to 7 inches of snow with maybe more sleet mixed in with it! Oh the joys of winter! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well we finally got the snow for about 4 hours before changing over to rain! And with the temps, it's got my dish for my Dish Network froze up! If I can't watch the Super Bowl, I'm gonna be really ticked off! So at any rate, NFL channel or NBC on my tablet should be able to play it! So the horses got to the indoor and lunged. I noticed that the new farrier don't take any sole off and he didn't bevel the bottom of the hoof wall! I'll be calling him tomorrow to ask why he didn't do the soles really and why he don't round them so that they don't break up the hoof wall! I went to Tractor Supply and brought 6 more bags if ice melt! They were out of my favorite that works great and can double as stuff for the indoor to keep the dust down, the Mag/Cal mix! So I could have spent $3 more a bag for the other Mag/Cal but it's already expensive enough. So I went with the Halite salt. It does say it will work even at about 5 degrees outside. So hopefully it'll do the job, probably need it on the driveway tomorrow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi. Sorry I haven't been by in a while, you're getting hard to find. But I know you're super busy this time of year. Hope life is going okay and you're getting some Koot time.
Because the play was in the early afternoon, I didn't get to ride yesterday. I did get a little more done on the fence. Gonna have to go buy more boards soon. Mattie and I were blown away by the "Phantom of the Opera"! The stage production was first class, and the music and the voices, just wow! Seeing it in person really let us experience the full range of the voices; I had no idea humans could sing like that!
Today is a cold rain, maybe with a mix of ice/sleet later. Delightful, lol. Anyway, hope you have a great super bowl sunday.

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

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it was cold this morning, only 09 with a chill factor of -05! But the sun was out and it got strong and it did get up to about 24 and melted some of the snow/ice stuff. New farrier was here about 10 am, I like him. Not sure about his trim on Paige, I would have done one thing a little different, but we'll see. If I can over to him, I save $40 on two trims, and when Paige goes back in shoes I'll be saving $45 on the two of them. That does add up over the year, but just not sure yet! Have to think about it! Did finally get them out about 1 pm to the indoor for some exercise, just Paige and Indy. Then gave them lunch and I can up and hung out and defrosted in the house by the wood burner! Let's see what tomorrow brings, snow to rain and back to snow/ice again! Is this ever going to stop! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well we got hit last night with the sleet, freezing rain and snow! It was so bad it knocked my Dish Network out, froze on the dish! What an ice skating arena out there this morning! Half Inch of not nice! Yak-Trax for sure! Wish Honey had some too! Chiropractor called and they got me in for an 11:30 appointment. Had to lay down 75 lbs of ice melt in the driveway and wait for it to melt and then scrap it off and down to the bottom, like recycle the melt salty ice! I'm sore yet, but he said it should be okay, it was really out! Damn ice! Needless to say, no one is getting out! Have the other farrier coming around 11 am Saturday to trim Paige and Indy. Wish I could get her out to lunge first, but if it's not safe, it's not happening! Well gotta go and put the Yak-Trax on and go feed! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well so far today they have been wrong on the weather. It did get up to about 38 degrees, but they said snow to rain and back to snow! So far nothing at all, just very damp and overcast. So got to lunge Paige and do some showmanship with her, lunged Indy and did a couple of halter set-ups with him. Them gave them lunch and then gave myself lunch! Made chicken noodle veggie soup in the crock pot today. YUM! Honey and I got a nice long walk in, did over a mile, it wasn't windy, so I didn't mind at all. Honey never does either way! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a mere 13F degrees when I got up with a windchill of the big ZERO! Got sunny for a while, but not enough to warm up the indoor enough to be lunging horses in there. Read a couple of good articles on Horses and working them in the cold, NOT to make them work or train in less than 25 degrees, they too can develop breathing problems just like humans! So no work for them! My hay man did come with another 50 bales for me, close to 180 now on hand, one more load and I should be able to make it till second cut in June of the timothy, or he said he can save me another 50 in case I run low! So I went downtown and hit the produce store and the grocery store and tomorrow I'll crock pot some chicken noodle veggie soup! Honey and I did get in a mile walk, it was only 28 degrees and mild wind, but I braved it! Tomorrow we're slated for a winterery mix, so hopefully not that much winter mix as they are saying high 30's! I hope to get them inside then for some lunging. Oh the joys of winter! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

OMG the winds are getting worse as the day goes on! Going down to about 10 degrees tonight! But I did get everyone to the indoor today. Lunged Paige and showmanship, lunged Indy and halter set ups. Bullseye got to free play, I actually had to chase him, he was being lazy! Lunch for them and then me. No walking with Honey today, we would have blown away! All week looks to be nasty!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well started out sunny and that ended really early, like by 10 am! Clouds moved in and temps did however get to 40 degrees, but nasty raw feeling out there! Went and picked up the newspapers for the doggie retreat. Home and hit the shower, in the winter I have to be in the house a few hours after my shower to adjust, yes weird! Otherwise I get sick! So by 1 pm I was able to go and give lunch to the kids. Had to leave by 2 pm for the Dermatologist, made out good, can stop taking the Doxy-C but have to continue the Clindamycin Lotion and return to them April 30th! Got home in just enough time to walk Honey, but only 1/2 mile as it was nasty and getting dusk out! Don't trust these idiot drives on my road! Snow possible for tomorrow, but they say no real accumulation! We all know what that can mean, nothing or a foot! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it rained all night and early this morning. The fog was like pea soup! It cleared off around 11 am, but still overcast out there. Temps did hit about 42 degrees. But the mud was slick, I did get Paige to the indoor, by walking straight out the barn and over about 10 feet into the pasture, nice deep hoof holes, but she didn't slip. We practiced some more showmanship. Didn't take Indy out, he weight like 250 lbs more than her, and he'd be like fetlock deep in it! After that I took Honey for a nice long walk, over a mile. Came back down the barn and gave them lunch. Then went in and had my lunch and watched the Pro-Bowl game. Good game, but the last minute my team NFC lost to the AFC! Oh well, it was a fun game to watch. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well started out at 22 and did get up to 46 degrees today! But no sun, overcast and windy too! So no ice really melted to speak of! But the top layer of the dirt and grass got soft enough to make it slick walking the horses out of the barn and down that little hill to behind the barn to the indoor. But everyone got out and got Lunged and showmanship, Indy was just halter set ups. Bullseye got to run free in the indoor. Lunch for them and a mile walk for Honey and I. Did have to put the scarf over my mouth case the wind was in my face on the way down of our walk, then nicer on the way home. Tomorrow could be rain, 40% chance, we'll see!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's vote #23100 for ya. Well it did get up to about 35 up here on the mountain with sunshine and some wind! Managed to get them to the indoor and lunged again and showmanship for Paige and halter set ups for Indy! Bullseye got to free play in the indoor! Then it was fresh water and hay for lunch. Checked on the crock pot, not ready yet, so Honey and I braved a walk in the winds! Did a mile, going down was blowing in my face a little, scarf around the mouth and nose to breathe in warm air. Coming back home, much better, breeze pushed us along! Now hopefully the ice melt I put down does its job and I can get the main gate open to take down 6 bales of hay tomorrow! Should hit the mid 40's tomorrow! Then not as warm Sunday and overcast! Ice is not melting at all! UGH! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well started out really cold, high got to 29 degrees by noontime and nice sunshine. So I went for it and got them lunged again. Hay and fresh water for them. Then into town for a couple of things I needed. Got home and since it was still sunny out, with just a light breeze, Honey and I got in about 3/4 mile walk. Cut it short cause the sun was starting to go down and it was cooling off. But at least we both got some walking in! They say tomorrow the high 30's with more sunshine! YAY! Feels like a heat wave with the sun so bright and warm! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

So heater's on in the barn again and double blankets on the kids! Paige and Indy both got lunged today. Then an early lunch as I had to get ready to go to the lung doctor for my 90 day checkup! Made out great, blood pressure very good, lungs clear and no wheezing! Of course just an hour before I got there, he sent his lead nurse home sick! Could be the start of the flu bug, so now I'll be a wreck worrying about the germs in the office! I get sick so easy! Upping my Vit C and other immune boosters starting tonight! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. What a mixed up weather day today. Super heavy rains all morning, about 1.5 inches worth! Then by noon time the sky's blue and sunshine! But it was slick mud on top of frozen ground, and I wasn't going to try and walk them down the side of the barn to the indoor! So Paige got her tail washed in a bucket of water, she's so good, I was resting the bucket against her hocks, she didn't care! Indy got a grooming. The they got lunch of hay and fresh water. So since it was like 55 degrees and sunny, Honey and I went for a little over a mile walk. Of course when we were about the last 1000 feet home, they sky started to turn black and the winds picked up! Yep sure enough more heavy rains and wind for the next few hours! Going down to about 28 tonight, should be an ice skating rink tomorrow morning! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

A Vote for You!!
Yep, came home with some wooden spoons which I already had ideas of painting them up and making them look like flowers with faces and glue on petals of some sort. Took down my tree and Christmas decorations today. I like leaving some of the "winter looking stuff" up.
That winter storm had lots and lots of chances to miss us, was calling for it to start 10 pm "last" night, didn't start until 10:30 this morning, but we did get dumped on about 8-9 inches, but hard to be sure because the winds are still blowing, at least 3ft right in front of the chicken coop door. which the chickens loved, because as soon as I did get the door open, they all ran to eat the snow, not sure why I bother with carrying water to them. They must believe me when I tell them it is "ice cream". Drifts are bad, and could not even see the barn most of the afternoon, by tomorrow it should be better.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well misty, drizzle and just a nasty dreary day out there! And it didn't get all that warm, so the ice is still there and it's like walking on a land mine field, you never know where it's gonna take ya out! So needless to say horses didn't get to the indoor, I might have been able too, but didn't want to chance me going down and winding up under one of them! But I did forge through and take Honey for a walk down the road, just ugly out, but we did it! We both needed the exercise! Working on dropping that Holiday weight! LOL! Now tomorrow it's rain for sure all day long, but they say we could get to the high 40's before starting the plunge again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Weather here is great! Temps will drop a little in the next couple days but nothing drastic. We are all doing well. Have been worried about my daughter recently. Don't think I mentioned that she started a new career as a first responder. She is a EMT with an ambulance company here. She has been working since Thanksgiving. With all this crazy weather and the crazy hours she works, I get pretty worried. She is doing great though. Hope you all enjoy your week. Have a blessed day.

Hi Kot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well we got up to 46 degrees with sunshine till about 2 pm. So it melted off more of this white stuff! But now it's muddy on top of frozen ground, so interesting to walk on for sure! Slip sliding away! Took another wheel barrel of 3 bales down to the barn, so we're okay with the rain moving in for Mon and Tues. Actually was able to lunge them naked today for the first time in a while! Paige and Indy got lunged inside. Bullseye got turned out in the front pasture in hopes of rolling in the snow! NOPE! Then gave them fresh water and hay for lunch. Honey and I did a walk again, almost a mile. Then it was the first football game of the two. Oh well, Jags lost to Pats! DAMN! Hoping that the Eagles win the night time game. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well busy day again today! Took two loads of hay to the barn, only can fit 3 bales on the wheel barrel at once. Then Erin came over to pick up the newspapers for the clinic and of course played with Honey. After that I went to the barn and at first let Paige lose to run and play! Nope, went and stood by the mirror looking at herself! So had to lunge her, then did a few minutes of showmanship backing and spins. Next was Indy, he got lunged today and then we practiced setting up for halter, he remembered! Then Bullseye went out in the front pasture, I was hoping he'd roll in the snow and clean himself off, but no! Gave them lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey and I then did a mile walk, road sides were wet with salt, so we walked in the middle and moved when cars came. Thank goodness it was a quiet day on the traffic! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well started out at 08 degrees and made it up to 36 up here on the mountain top! Sun didn't come out till about 2:30 pm, but then it warmed up some of the ice and I chopped it out of the driveway and by the barn! Ran a lot of errands this morning. Even took Beast to the coin truck wash and got all the road salts off her! Picked up grain for Indy, Alfalfa pellets for Paige and lot's of dog food for Honey! Got Paige lunged and did 5 minutes of showmanship. Then free lunged Indy and Bullseye. Gave them fresh water and hay for lunch and finally at 2:45 got to have my lunch. Then Honey wanted out, so we went and she ran and ran in the snow! She's such a little nut case in the fresh soft snow! Love that pup! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well started out at 04 and made the high of 26 or so. But the sun was strong and felt great! A little wind, but not all that bad! I actually was sweating out there working the snow blower. Yep, that lovely high wind yesterday filled in all my hard labor moving that 7 inches of fluffy snow! So today it was snow blow all over again and then man the tractor and finish up the driveway. Got the Beast moved and all cleaned off too and shoveled out the bed. Horse got some time in the indoor, and then lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey played in the cleared paths running like a nut case! She hit the deep stuff a few times and was like, oh no, out of here! I was beat by then, had some lunch and a nice long nap! Love my naps! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well for snowing for over 29 hours, thank goodness it was the light stuff and not coming down hard and fast! So our total was 7 inches! It stopped by noontime and of course the winds picked up then too! So the 24 F felt like 14 F and now the drifts are building up! Worked the snow blower first and got all down by the barn and indoor done, oops forgot to do a path past the gate to the manure pile! Oh well, that's what Thursday is for! LOL! Then maned the tractor and got 3/4 of the driveway done. Called it quits then, was frozen and cold! Got Honey and we went out to the barn and gave the kids lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey has a 15 X 25 puppy park in the back yard for potty time! Going down to the single digits tonight, oh joy! Might have to run the heat so those wall fins don't freeze up since the wind is blowing from that direction! Hope this stops soon and spring comes early! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! But lucky so far, since it started at 7 am this morning, and it's almost 12 hours, we've only got 2 inches so far! But they say the heavy snowfall will come overnight! New prediction is now 5 to 7 inches! Got the kids to the indoor and lunged Paige and did showmanship, then lunged Indy, and free lunged Bullseye. Got the wood burner going a few days now, feels great and I love the idea that I'm not using a ton of oil! Mo's up here in the house with us right now, but he's going back to the barn when I do pm feeding in a short while. He ran out when I went out with one of the kids and took off. Finally came back, but I was in the house and not going back out, so up the stairs he came and in the house! PS, got a text from Cheryl and Cisco, she'll be back on in a few days! YAY!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a productive running around errand day today! Started out at 09 degrees and got up to about 24 degrees. Sun was in and out, then out for the rest of the day! Went to town and got the newspapers for the doggie retreat and picked up a bunch of sale items at that store. Home and did a few things inside, like laundry, much needed! Then gave the kids lunch of fresh warm water and hay. Off to the chiropractor for my usual adjustment, much needed of course! Then Wally World for the really big grocery shopping! And it was a big one, hadn't shopped in three weeks due to the weather! All set now for a couple of weeks at least! Next it Tractor Supple and the Feed store for more of the kids food. Honey says I need my grain to mom! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well only 08 this morning and a high of 18 F this afternoon. But the sun was out nice and strong, so made it feel a tad bit warmer. Indoor was at 30 degrees, so it was work time for the kids! Paige got lunged and a showmanship workout. Indy got lunged. Bullseye got to run free. Then it was lunch of fresh warm water and hay for them. Then football for me! All I can say is, so far with the 4 games this weekend, only one of my favorites has won. Last game is on now and the Saints are taking a beating! Oh well! Glad I don't bet money on these things! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it was an interesting day for sure! Went from a high of 62 yesterday to waking up to 26 this morning with a skip of ice and sleet/snow combo out there. But the winds were horrible, steady at 18 mph with gusts to almost 40 they were saying, and it sure felt like it! Temps dropped more throughout the day too! So it was not an indoor arena day at all. I didn't want to chance walking them out the door and have one freak out and slip on the now ice covered mud! So lunch time fresh water and hay, and they were very happy. My hay man came with another delivery of 50 bales. Probably need another 100 in the hay barn to make it till second cut Timothy in June. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well we got rain rain and more rain! Like almost 2 inches so far, and with the melting snow, it's a flooding mess out there! Not fun at all! Needless to say, the kids did not get to the indoor today! Instead it was a complete spa day for them. Complete with shaving of the muzzles, bridle paths and fetlocks! They enjoyed it! Then lunch of hay and fresh water. Temps are still at 60 degrees, but by morning will be down to the low 30's! And the rain will turn to ice and sleet! Oh joy for sure! Got the YakTrax on my other boots all ready to go! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Just to let ya know, I heard from Cheryl and Cisco and they are out of gigs on the internet, so she'll be back when it rolls over again. Well we got warmer today, high of 46, but with no sun it didn't feel that warm! But I got a lot done outside. 3 more bales of hay to the horse barn. Big tractor down and moved the manure pile back and then got into the indoor and dragged it really good. Horses all enjoyed their play time in the nice soft sand. Indy must have rolled half a dozen times! He loves to roll. Honey and I got in a mile walk too! Then later on, met up with someone who brought my winter riding On Course heavy English pants from back when. Another item sold that no longer fit me! Cash is good! LOL! Now for tomorrow and the heavy rains! YUK! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
