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!

We had a horrible Sunday. We were going to the fairgrounds for practice. I lead Bub into the trailer (3 horse slant) and tied him before I closed the divider door. He went to follow me, felt the tie, and freaked out! The safety tie did not break, but his nice leather halter did! He is now sporting a mohawk and several stitches on his forehead, thanks to me! I feel so bad;my fault!! He's in good spirits about it except when my husband came home from work (nights), he talked to the horse and he seemed embarrassed buy his looks, turning away and not looking at him, according to husband! Poor guy! He walked off the trailer with head hanging low and mouth gaped wide open! We thought he broke his jaw! I know my head is tender coz I was right next to him!! He still loves me, he says. Gives me lots of kisses!! Oh the love of a horse!!

Glad you had a great time!
Construction of the ice blanket will start tomorrow, am using socks for pockets. Got Cisco's white mesh fly sheet out and cleaned and will sew at least 3 down each side, 1 on each side of the hip and 1 on each side of the chest. Just need to ask the vet how long to leave it on. Will also start putting ice blocks in the water tubs in the afternoon. Whew. Thank God we only topped out at 86 today, and is supposed to be relatively cool thru at least Sat. Cisco enjoyed his new guilt free treats: celery sticks. Meg and Nugget weren't interested.

On Sunday I lunged Spangle. He did really well.

I also rode Rose bareback. I used very little rein the whole time. I also stopped Rose from a lope with no rein! It was a good ride.

Yesterday I had a lesson on Rose. I galloped her in our warm-up. She had a lot of energy. Then we worked on soft/slow work. We also did one dressage test:) It was a good ride.

I will be offline 7/30-8/9

Welcome back. A hot air balloon ride sounds like a blast. Our town used to host a balloon festival and it was the prettiest thing to watch them all take off together and float through the sky. They are fascinating.
Rode BJ yesterday in the field next door, and even though it was windy and the corn was blowing around, he did well. Its supposed to only reach the mid 80s today and tomorrow, so I'll be outside as much as possible.
Hope your Tuesday goes smoothly. Give Koot a pat for me when you see him.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Was following your trip on FB. Looks like you really had a great time. I miss those days gone by with my Bestie from back in the 70's and 80's. Make those memories last a lifetime and get away as much as you can now. Things and times change over the years. Busy day on the farm. Got the LQ Trailer moved to the load up area and started to pack some stuff for this weeks trip. Lunged Indy and did some showmanship with him. Turned him and Bullseye out and then mowed pastures 1 and 2. Did a few more things and saw some really big dark clouds moving in. Got Indy in, then Bullseye and said let's go Harley dog, hurry up and close the indoor arena doors, we're gonna get thumped on! Just as we were walking up from the barn, it came out of no where! Poured on us, not even a little drizzle or spit first, just womp! Lasted all of about 15 minutes, but strong winds and heavy rains! Then the sun came out again, but it still stayed cool and breezy! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I had to stop by the store, after work and buy another fly mask. Sassy Miss Sadie is rough on them. I don't like having to keep her beautiful face covered, but the flies here are bad. Got to keep her pretty eyes protected. Aren't horses some of the most gorgeous creatures? Love and a vote.

MY PROBLEM CHILD....
Good morning, first, I'm sorry if I missed anyone yesterday, HC has been so S L OW. It took forever to do my blogging. Second Cookie came around yesterday and did teeth, yippee, Sterly did not require the power float, she was looking good, he is generally p;eased with her, Charlie did well with his float also, however, my boy has developed a vice and I wonder if anyone has a suggestion....at night in his stall, he stands next to Sterly's half door and he kicks the wall (wood), it is hard to describe, not directly behind, but the wall that he is standing parallel to. I'll get a picture this morning and post it. Dr. Cook is worried, me too, that he will eventually injure his hocks, he does it on both sides, depending on which direction he is facing. HELP. David suggested fastening rubber matting to the wall to absorb the shock. Dr. Cook said, like any vice, it is sometimes very difficult to stop once they have made it a habit. We had a nice ride yesterday, hope to today before the rains come, all week....We voted, Love Donna Lee

Hi everyone! I've been at the fairgrounds this week cheering on my cousin in the horse and pony classes for 4H. My youngest daughter and I went to learn "the ropes" so she can show Bub and Bee next year. Even though I got my first horse when I was 8 yrs old, my parents wouldn't let me show, so all this is new to me. So this week have not rode at all because of getting home late and then the time chores are done, I'm pooped! I sit down to rest between 10-11 o'clock! My mind is to wound-up to go to bed, so got to watch TV and fold laundry to turn the brain off.

Been hot again with no rain, so off and on been using the sprinklers so hopefully do not loose the pasture yet again-every year since 2010 we have had to start all over.

Have a great night and weekend! Voted, of course.

Hi Dayna & Koot
Good Morning all, the forecast is for rain, grrrrr, it is suppose to be nice tomorrow. Charlie and I had a nice ride yesterday after work, it was not too hot, Charlie can't stand the flies, he gets so distracted, plus he is so thin skinned, they bite and he is such a baby. I have a bit of an update on Trevor, we are so happy, his Petscan was good, still shows lots of inflammation in neck and throat area, but they think that is residual from all the radiation, the lymph nodes are clear, that is good, right? His blood work was excellent and altho we understand that the tumor is still there, his oncologist says he is right where she wants him to be, next check up 3 months, hallelujah. Have a great weekend, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

My niece and I hauled to our first trail ride of the summer Thur morning and had a blast. We rode slowly due to the heat but rode about 3 hrs. The woods are so quiet and shady and kinda solemn in the summer, at least until the June bugs get cranked up. Then its noisy! Lol. Hope you and Koot have a great weekend.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Have a great vacation! Yes, we average a 3 or 4 or 5 day show once a month from May till Sept. I love being on the road. What a hot humid one today! Hit 90 degrees with heat index of 97, and of course that was when we were working Paige out! Outside none the less, but there was a really nice breeze so it didn't feel as bad as it was! But the three of us worked up a lather! Paige, Marissa and then me on my horsemanship lesson and then a showmanship lesson, running or should I say jogging in that hot sand wasn't fun for me! I can sympathize with how poor Paige was feeling. Only she got a nice cool shower right away! Got home and just hayed Indy and Bullseye, cause the green heads were out in force. They really prefer the barn with all the nice big fans going. Right now waiting on a storm that's all around us, it's even saying we are getting rain, but it's so high up and the heat is so hot, it's evaporating before ground level! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

She was so calm and really seemed to enjoy going to a new place. We rode over to Mike and Sue's place, rode a bit there, and rode back. We went with a friend from the barn, it was her first time off the property too, they rocked it as well!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Glad that you'll have a couple of more days to see Koot before vacation. Ladies weekend away sounds like fun! Enjoy! Paige is there till the 31st, then we leave that day for a 3 day show with Marissa and the gang. Today was the triple H day, hazy, hot and very humid! But I got over to work with Paige at our trainers. She had just finished lungeing her when I got there and Paige was wet all ready. Then Marissa rode her and gave her a good tune up! She was not wanting to get off her right leg and just leaning on Marissa's spur, that stopped after a little talk! LOL! Then I got to ride the cool down period. But then Paige was out of gas and looking to just walk and hang her head. LOL! Got home really late and it was very buggie, so the boys stayed in with more hay and in front of double fans. They were happy! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
