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!

How's your weekend going? Do you have tomorrow off? Glad you got in a good ride on Koot. I worked all 3 of my horses today. Rode BJ and ponyed Gracie off him. It was fun to work them both that way. Allie was standing at the fence looking left out, so I brought her in and did some groundwork with her. Hopped on bareback just to flex her head back and forth. Everybody was calm and happy so i wound up riding her around following my niece on her mare. It was just at a walk and just for a few minutes, but she was so good. I have a big stupid grin on my face now. If someone had told me my first ride on a 2 year old would be bareback, I would have called them crazy, lol.

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

Thinking Tx and Ok are trying to become the next Great Lakes states. Usually the creek doesn't stay flooded long, it's just a seasonal creek and dry most of the time. We got another 2 1/2", so of course it flooded again this AM, but is down now. That's 3x in 7 days! Nothing like all those poor people to N and S of us, horrible flooding and mandatory evacuations. Feel so sorry for them (and their animals).

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well another 42 degree morning and a high of about 68 with sunshine, so it felt really good in the afternoon. Woman I'm selling my English saddle too texted me this morning and now she'll be here Sunday morning instead. Just please show up and buy it! Got Indy lunged and lunged Paige and did a showmanship lesson with her. She was really on today! Then went to a friends for about an hour for a BBQ. Had to get home and let the horses out on this beautiful day, they are really loving their pasture time. Then weed whacked around the interior of the outdoor arena and mowed the perimeter and got the front lawn mowed. Will do the back yard tomorrow. Needed to come in and rest a little. Going down to low 40's again tonight, but they say tomorrow will be near 80 degrees, go figure! Bath time for Bullseye, dirty donkey! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. LOL Danya, every weekend is a long weekend for me! Well was 47 this morning with a high of 70 today. But tonight dropping down to about 38 they say! No riding time today. Had that complete physical to go for at the union medical center. Three hours driving time alone! Plus time there and then time waiting for a couple of scripts to be filled at the pharmacy killed most of the early afternoon. Got home like 2:30. Kendra that takes care of Bullseye when I'm showing came up for old nasty hay to cover their new lawn area. Spent time shooting the breeze. Then turned out the kids for over an hour on pasture, they're getting up there on more time out now. Then weed whacked all around the entire property and fence lines. Killed the day! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Koot time is good time!
Wish I could wave a magic wand and send you some (or all) of our rain. Usually this time of year we are really getting dry. Went grocery shopping yesterday and picked mostly emergency supplies, (bottled water, canned goods) just in case. Thankfully, just a bit of drizzle this AM, but chilly and of course, damp. Can't believe I'm wearing a jacket in the middle of the day and it's nearly June.

Happy you were able to get Koot out, sounds like you both had a great time! The farrier was out yesterday and the boys got theirs hooves done and they are all set. Last day of work, I will come back 5/30. Rain is in the forecast but hopefully I can capture a few rides, if not I will get ground work and grooming in there. I also will catch up on rest of the to-do list. I don’t go out of town or doing any other things for vacation as you already know-lol! . I have flown and traveled a many of place my whole life and now I choose to be with my life time love~HORSES! I’ve worked hard all my life to get to where I am now (of course I continue to dream of more with my horses) but my off time is dedicated to them and I’m very happy about that, it truly makes me happy ♡ Have a wonderful day and week ♡

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. I bet Koot loved the ride and then the play time! Well at least it stayed above 40 this morning, 43 is better than the 37 they were calling for. But it never even hit 60 today, and it was overcast! So another kinda chilly nasty day. But I did get both Indy Lunged and Paige ridden. Then they went out, with sheets on of course, gotta keep those show coats from blowing out! Then weed whacked two pastures and around the indoor. Then mowed those two smaller pastures and didn't have a jacket on, by the time I finished I had goosebumps going on! LOL! Sure hope spring returns soon! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Greetings from the swamp!
Wish I could send you some rain. Our weather sucks, Tx is floating away. Rain just won't quit, 1 1/2" this AM. Our bridge has been under flood waters 3 times in the last few weeks, in a bad year it floods once. We are just a swampy, muddy mess. Was able to get out today after the water went down and get in emergency supplies - that road is our only way out. 4" more predicted thru Monday.

every now and then, we have too much rain, but mostly, we always need it too, especially in the summer. the old folks say that since the 70's, it's been too dry around here to really make crops worth the risk. don't know what changed back then.
hope you have a good thur with some Koot time thrown in

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope that you got that ride in last night. Are you in the part of CA that is having some rain right now? Had the farrier this morning for new shoes on Paige and he check Indy's trim, Indy was done down at the show and he just wanted to touch him up, and for free! That was nice of him. Then I kinda hibernated in the house for a while, it was 51 this morning and a windchill of 43, never got above 55 with winds. So kids were in the indoor for work and then hay in the barn. I did mow another pasture and two more sides of the indoor arena. Buy then I had windburn on my face and said time to hit the house. I cleaned my English saddle up, as it's sold and leaving on Saturday! Yay! Going down to 37 tonight, winter's back! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Only 1/8" of rain yesterday - the really bad storms were to NW of us. Feeling for the people up there, it was a rough night for them. Sunny and breezy today, starting to dry out a bit. Maybe horsey time tomorrow!

♡ I was able to get the boys out and brush and put their fly stuff on. They mowed our yard for us and it gave their hooves some relief from being wet. I had to have citronella candles going to keep mosquitoes at bay. Flies aren’t as bad as you would think but bad enough. Hugs & a vote for you!!!

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. I bet Koot was so happy to get out and romp and stomp! LOL! Hope that you got that ride in tonight. Well woke up to the rains, but it all stopped by 9 am and got sunny and humid, but that did dry it up. Got ole'blue down to Jimmy's today, so hopefully it'll sell over the weekend! Came home and only lunged them, it was so hot and humid, in less than 20 minutes they each were soak'n'wet! Then hosed them off and turned them out, up to almost a full hour now of grass/pasture time. Then mowed one pasture and one side of the indoor arena. Tomorrow my farrier is coming in the am to do Paige. Then it's hopefully ride, supposed to only be about 64 degrees tomorrow. Then mow another pasture and the other 3 sides of the indoor. Love working outdoors now! Not like in the winter, freezing my vocal cords off! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Sigh, more rain. Looks like the worst of it will be up around the OK border, so that's good. Just a few brief thunderstorms our way, according the radar. Still 80-100% chance of rain the next 10 days. Usually by this time, we're praying for rain. We are SUCH a muddy mess!

Hello to all. Sorry if I leave anyone out but I'm not supposed to be on here right now-shhh!-but I never seem to get the time!
My dad is slowly declining in health and is praying to die. It is time he goes.
I found out I'm going to have to have surgery to remove my uterus and possibly my only ovary due to monstrous fibroids. Usually those are noncancerous but due to my cancer history, the doctor will have it checked. So because of that possibility, instead of laparoscopic surgery I think I will take the incision so he can remove it in one piece. This will set me back around 6-8 weeks. No riding, no lifting, no mowing, no heavy chores at all! A.K.A. Worthless! So I have decided to put it off until after the summer and 4H and new granddaughter arrives.
The horses are good, healthy, and so shiny! I just looked at them-so pretty in the sun. They are in excellent health and dappling too! I haven't tried Bub in the trailer lately which I need to be more consistent but I can't be in a time crunch which is what I've been in lately. Being in a hurried state would be worse than not at all. If he doesn't make it to 4H this year, it's a shame but fine. We just picked up another horse, Pumpkin, to show too. He is a fat QH guessing 250 pounds overweight! Daughter and I started working him yesterday. So now 3 horses and a two horse trailer! Unless we hitch a ride, someone is out!
I hope all is going well for all of you. I will try to get on here more. I know I'll be on after surgery a lot-that's not the way I want to do it, but it is what it is! Leaving a vote! Have a good day.

Glad you're getting some rain though, I imagine that you almost always need it. Glad Koot is doing well. We finally had a little thunderstorm go over yesterday evening, haven't had a drop all of May and the grass was trying to go dormant. The horses are all fat and don't need much grass at present, but you hate to see your pasture bare so early in the summer.
well, hope work is going well and you have a good tue.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope you got some Koot time in tonight. Looks like you had a wonderful time on vaca. Went to a Rodeo sat. night, but it got held up for a while thanks to a severe thunder and lightning storm with heavy rains. We all took cover in the livestock pavilions. Well it was overcast and cold and damp all day. So the only two things that really got done were the cleaning out of ole'blue and the chiropractor with food shopping at Wally World after it. Temps didn't get about 60 degrees today, very raw out there. I wanted to mow two pastures, but they stayed wet from the overnight dew! Rain and thunder storms for all day Tuesday! I have to go downtown and pick up Jimmy, that's who's lot the truck is going for sale on. He's hoping that with all the traffic passing on Memorial Day weekend going up to the camp grounds, someone will say, hey there's a nice truck for towing this big camper of ours! LOL! And it'll be gone! It served me will for almost 13 years! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Leaving a wet, muddy vote, thankfully no rain today, but hot and muggy. Lots of rain still in the 10 day, wish I could send it to you and Allie in SC. Tried to go out and close the gate to the pasture this AM, but kept getting stuck in the mud, so just left it open and told them not to eat too much, LOL.

What a beautiful purposal sounds romantic !! It has been spring here had a 15 minute storm around 8 last night, thunder lightning and a soaker rain, pretty refreshing this morning, the other night we had hail rain, thunder and lightning, that one lasted a little longer with alot more rain.
Made another trail obstacle took Lilly 2.5 hours to finally go through it, it is a gate of those swimming pool noodles, kinda cool, can't believe she was so stubborn especially because of some of the tree branches we ride through in the orchard, Maybe because she can't eat these as she passes through LOL Hope you all have a lovely week, love Suz and Lilly

Weather folks say to look at the bright side-we are no longer in a drought! Yesterday it was partly cloudy and some sun and the wind was blowing pretty good so I thought it was going to dry us some~NOT~ the herd enjoyed turn out and I had to fly spray them a little and they were happy.

Glad you got some much needed rain. Rain, rain, and more rain. 1 1/4" this AM, then more this afternoon. No joke, I may NOT be riding till July. I don't ever think we've had a spring this wet. Poor wheat farmers are going to lose the entire harvest if it doesn't stop quick - usually they're harvesting starting this week and next, and the 10 day is nothing but rain.
