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!

I'M FRUSTRATED, GRRR
I should have the blood work back today, as far as the nutritionist. She is reluctant to make a change in feed for and ulcer he "may" or "may not" have. She can't get her head around an impaction colic, to her that means lack of moisture, so #1 should be let's get him drinking more water...Charlie is a good drinker. She says the only way to know for sure if he has an ulcer is to scope, I said Dr. C is treating on clinical signs, he knows this horse. She said he has adequate fat and fibre with his present ration, keep up with the alfalfa hay and add corn or vegetable oil to his feed. Not much help there....we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya buddy. No I'm not going anywhere! And I'm staying with Marissa as our trainer, she's really good. She's looking to move barns, place she's been at since last winter said they would work on fixing all the winter problems so she wouldn't have them this year, and they haven't done a darn thing to fix anything! Took a lot of money in rent from her and who knows what they did it with it! Another cold and very windy one. Today was take the new truck on an adventure to Home Depot. First time it got to be a work truck! Carried it's first load of materiel in the bed. I picked up 3 insulation panels for the three dutch doors on the front of the horse barn. One sheet of plywood to go over the top of Indy's door, don't want him eating the insulated board. And several bags of ice melt in prep for the winter. Steve across the street helped me get the big stuff to the barn and hopefully tomorrow he'll help me cut everything to size and place in the door frames. Kids got hay for lunch and fresh water, they were happy. Tomorrow it could go above 35 degrees in the afternoon, so I'll ride them then if we are done with the project, otherwise at least lunge them again. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Seems like it does. Did some more research today, looked at a few other websites, but didn't find anything I liked as much as MyHorseBling. Newest coming fad - a friend's farrier is developing Hoofies- peel and stick hoof covers. Look cool, but doubt I'll go that far. Unless maybe they have silver...

CAN'T BELIEVE THIS WEATHER...
I'm off work today, our plant is having some major maintenance done,this works out for me except for the lack of $$$. Dr. Cook is coming to pull a blood on Charlie, hope it shows the inflammation is gone...the nutritionist is coming over after lunch to discuss his feed program. He has been on the maintenance dose of his ulcer meds since Monday and so far so good. Yesterday was so miserable they had to stay in again, I think they can get out for a bit today. Just because I don't talk about her, Sterly is doing great...She loves winter. We left a long weekend vote, Love Donna Lee

Here's a vote from Buddy! I'm happy to say I have found a place to board Buddy in Grande Cache! It's the trail riding place that I was told about. $325 for outdoor board and $425 for indoor. So I think I am going to try and see how he is on outdoor board again, and if he's a stinker and doesn't want me to catch him again I will be putting him back on indoor board. I'm moving him on December 1st as far as I know. We've rented a trailer for that day, so I'm hoping it all goes well as that's the same day we ourselves are moving. I'm hoping Buddy loads like a champ like he did when I brought him up here to be with me. I also hope that he allows me to put his shipping boots on again. We have rented a sea can from the "Pods" company, and had it delivered today. I'm getting excited to move!

Sunday I am doing an equine first aid course with one of the girls I work with. I'm looking forward to it. Not only will I learn lots, I'm also excited to learn how to wrap bandages properly. I already know the basics on how to wrap, but it never hurts to learn more! Buddy has been doing well. I still havent ridden him, but I've been spending lots of time with him just brushing him and picking up his feet and cleaning them. I bought myself a lunge line today finally so now I won't have to worry about borrowing one from someone when I want to lunge him.

The weather here has turned mild, it's been nice and warm and today it was actually about plus 6 out! It was a nice change from the cold, windy, snowy, Alberta weather. I hope everyone has been good and getting lots of horsey time in!

-Buddy & Jasmine

Well, Koot, us girls in Wisconsin are going to get a heat wave, might even have to dig out those bikinis again.....well, if you want to call 29-30 a heat wave, but at least it is above 0, and better than the -4 to 5 above we had this week.

Glad the winds have calmed. Rhythm beads are like a horsey necklace, with bells. The bells are supposed to be calming. They are also called Cadence beads and Speed beads. I got mine from MyHorseBling.com, was actually looking to get some mane extensions when I came across these. A friend of mine said a lot of endurance riders use them, and the site also suggest them for barrel racing.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Glad that your winds have died off. Bust cold, cold day. Didn't get above 28 degrees again. Did get everyone lunged and cleaned up today. Then went on a road trip with my trainer to look at a new barn and indoor with another barn with a hay loft and bedding storage area above it. Same distance from my house, so I don't care were we go. It's got pro's and it's got con's, but with some TLC is can be doable. So time will tell. Hopefully tomorrow it'll warm up enough so I can get a ride in. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Lilly is so cool, so much personality, yesterday evening when I was putting everyone back from our short walk the dang goat boys went into the chicken coop again and knocked over the garbage can of feed,I was so angry with them I was trying to move them out but still had Lilly by the 12 foot lead she was just being so patient waiting for me well they are so huge now I could not move them so I put Lilly up then went back over and drug them out one at a time and as I put them in the barnyard I told Lilly they are bad boys and she should spank them good, I guess she could tell by my tone I was not happy and one at a time as I put them away she pinned back her ears and nipped them on the butt as they came through, it was awesome after they were both back in I said you are such a good momma and she she shook her head yes, she is just so cool, of course she got a treat for being a good momma !!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well at least Koot was happy to get his big roll in, that's for sure. Sorry those horrible winds moved in on ya! Hope they move out fast! Burr baby Burr! 23 this morning with a wind chill of 14, and the high was only about 27 with windchill of 16! So it was not nice out there. I have to find my knee warmers, I didn't put them on and working out two horses in the indoor and then being outside getting wood, my poor ole'arthritic knees were screaming when I came in the house. Only lunged today, hopefully tomorrow ride Paige. She was bucking up a storm lungeing, it was about 36 inside the indoor and she felt good, kinda glad I didn't saddle up! LOL! Heats on in the barn, it's about 50 right now in there when I feed a little while ago, kids are nice and toasty in their blankets. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Sorry about the winds. Hear they can be awful. Yep, some days Cisco is just NOT in the mood. Usually it's no problem, but you're at a clinic... Thankfully, he calmed down, several people still can't believe I rode him his halter Sat afternoon, but he actually seems to do equally well in the sidepull, bosal or halter. Sometimes I think he actually does best in just the halter.

Brrrr. it is soo cold here in Mosier, nights are in the single didgits, days don't get above low 30* the sun is shinning brilliantly so if you stay in one spot and bury your face in your horses fur, you can visit with them !! Lilly is drinking lots of water which is good, but it means I have to pack it out to the barn 2-3 times a day I will be so glad when this artic blast blows out of here it is exhausting. only 3 days left of work and I will be done hard to beleive on days like today though it will be nice not having to drive down the freeway even if it was only 7 miles it is along the Columbia River and it is very shady stretch of HWY in the winter so it is really icy, not going to miss that drive at all ! Have a blessed Tuesday ! love Suz and Lilly

Good morning vote for ya! Hope things are going well and you have been getting some good rides in. Our weather has not been cooperating here - either rain or high winds. Farrier was out on Sunday so Butter's feet are nice and pretty again. :) He was being a brat so I ended up giving him a bale of hay to munch on so he would stand still. I do think he is a bit spoiled!!
Hope you have a wonderful day and get to spend some time with Koot.

That's good Koot is so close to you. These cold and short days make it difficult to ride. I always feel bad for the folks who really can't ride all winter due to snow and dangerously low temps. I might have to ride slowly because of wet slippery ground, but unless its raining, I can ride year round. This old southern lady is living right where she was made to live, lol. I do love sunshine and long days.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a good Tue.

HI, left a vote. Got a pic of Zip with his new halter on, and it is posted. I also made him speed/rhythm beads. He has that on in the pic too. He was great today. He didn't know what to think of the beads, he tried to eat them, then he shyed a bit from them, so I put them around my neck and lead him around. I would also shake them every once in awhile. Then, like a couple minutes later, I gave him a hug, then rubbed the beads on both sides of his neck. I then put the beads around his neck and walked and trotted him around. Didn't care about them at all. When we are finished, I had him in the cross ties, picking out his feet, and another boarder, Randy, had his mare cross tied right in front of Zip. Randy took the blanket of his mare and put it on top of a box right next to Zip, the blanket fell! Zips eyes got big, he pulled back just a bit, I grabbed his lead, and told him it was okay, and he looked at me, and relaxed. Whew! That could have been really bad. Really proud of him, he handled it well. Didn't get any Amber time today, so she will be up first tomorrow. I did however give her some love and treats!

Cisco was in one of moods this weekend. Didn't ride Friday, but did lunge him. Sat AM warmer than expected, Cisco put on quite a show. He was very tense when riding in the arena, and nearly blew up when we left out for the small pasture, so got off, led him around, then mounted. Decided after talking to Steve at lunch not to ride, but lead him down the trail. He softened up, so got back on - thought Steve would have a heart attack about me riding him in his halter. Very tight for a few minutes, then settled down. Got very tight again near the end, so dismounted. Steve was having trouble gathering up 7 halters/leads and the mounting block, so Cisco got to play packhorse and carry the halters back to arena - he was totally calm about it.

Good Morning, All is well, I am breathing again. Dr. Cook is very pleased with Charlie's progress, he stays on the high dose for a couple more days, then drop to 1/2 and observe closely. By then I should have some tips from the nutritionist. Our Marion has been very helpful with ideas, things that she has done in the past.
