How We Met

I was 13, and desperately searching for my first horse. We met a family in Kentucky while we were there on a trip, and by chance, they bred Kenticky Mtn. Saddle horses!Shads was in a small roundpen with his cousin Latte *who we bought as well*. He needed a lot of weight, and was scared of everything, but I knew he was special. Hard, consistant training and overcoming problems has brought us so much closer, and we'll continue to work together..

Hi Again! You should definitely make Amya a page. That's so awesome, so now she is officially yours!! Congrats! Let me know how your lesson and trail ride goes. The beach we rode on is a public beach but it allows horses. There aren't really any beaches around here just for horse riding. I'm glad Shadow's limp seems to be approving. Glad to hear he'll be better soon :) I don't know many HC friends with Halfingers but I do know some people in my neighborhood with them. Left a Tuesday vote. XOXO Danya and Kootenai

*I want to thank everyone for voting for me during this HOTM run :) Please keep the votes coming! Thanks!*

I want to thank each and every one for your prayers for my family. Last evening Jim told me they will be deciding on if they are doing a second surgury and possibly when he will be released and how he will be transported. He thought his phone went bonkers yesterday as I spent the day cleaning and didn't call in the morning. Right now he counts on two people to call him. I call in the morning and his caretaker calls in the evening. Here's my vote for you. Have a great Sunday. Shawnie

Hey!!! It's okay, I understand how things can get busy. It's great to hear from you though. Oh my gosh I love Halfingers. I sorta think Koot has some Halfinger in him. He has some of their body characteristics. Any idea when Shadow will be all better to ride again? Ya, I took Koot for a beach adventure lol. It was his first time! He was a bit iffy at first and then realized it was just moving water and really enjoyed it :) Glad to hear things are going well for you mostly! Leaving a Friday vote. XOXO Danya and Kootenai

A mid-week vote is here from Fancy:) I wanted to get a photo of Fancy using her scratcher. But I only catch her using it when I look out of the window or back door. When I go out she stops scratching and walks to me. Sooner or later I will get a photo of her using it:)

Fancy and I are not up to anything until after the holiday celebrations. Does the noise of firecrackers bother Shads? I do not know how Fancy will like them:)

A vote for you on this lovely & hot Saturday!
Oh, Tirnanog has developed a strange habit. The last few times he has been ridden, after mounting him he bucks a few times and then looks back to see if you are still on him and then if you are still there, he walks on like nothing happens. HMMM, I wonder what is on his mind.
We saw the movie Avatar yesterday and it was better than I ever expected. I told my sons I was going to braid my hair and go out and plug it into Fancy's mane to see if we would bond. They laughed. Ha, they just didn't know, it worked. LOL. Now when I ride Fancy I am going to think I am plugged into one of those huge winged creatures soaring through the air!
Have you ever seen a movie that made you feel like that could be you on your horse? Well, that is my fantasy for the week:) What is yours?

Sunday's vote from Fancy. We are having nice weather now. Saturday it threatened to storm but the storm stayed away:) We can be a bit more adventurous now!!!

Some have asked who is the lady in the last photo of Fancy's page. She is not me, She is my oldest sister.

Sunday afternoon Tirnanog came to visit Fancy. My brother rode him around in the corral and I followed on Fancy. We did this about 40 minutes +/-. This was the longest I've ridden her so far and she was pretty good, lots better than that last ride! Then Fancy got a rinse, some fly spray and lots of grass before time for me to go inside. Doesn't seem like much, but it was a terrific day for me:)

U just got served a Friday vote from Fancy:) Thursday was Probably My best birthday ever in a long time!

First thing was to feed Fancy, then my husband and I went to the track for our walk, I finally, (first time this year) walked 2 miles. Took a few weeks to work up to it. We always walk in the spring, summer, and fall.

Then we moved a round bale to the back of the empty stall where Fancy can't reach it though the gate, because she won't eat the hay I put out for her, instead she sticks her head through the gate and eats.

Next we got all fresh and headed out for breakfast. Instead of breakfast we ended up in Anson County to visit my Dad. I see my Dad maybe once a year. This was so wonderful and he hugged me and took time for a pic with me even though he was dirty and working:) It is hard to get time from him because he is so busy.

I also saw his sister who he named me after. She is 83 years old and still getting around almost as good as I am!!! I want to be like her. She cuts wood and everything. (but I don't really want to cut wood,LOL)

Before dinner I got a few pictures with Fancy.

Visited my Mom for a while to, she just stays 3 miles from us:)
I didn't get that ice cream cake yet, but one day!!!

For my birthday I got 2 detailed stitched western shirts, 1 long sleeve t-shirt, 1 short sleeve t-shirt, a pair of walking shoes, a lady shirt, a pack of shuttlecocks(because i'm afraid tennis will make my shoulder hurt), a pair of wrangler ultimate riding jeans, dinner, and a little money.

Well that was my busy day and it was fun!

Won't get to ride much this weekend. We are expecting rain for the next 3 or 4 days. Just gonna wait it out & see what happens:)

Well Shadow looks great in the new picture, he was so furry in the last one lol. I like ALL the new pictures actually :) I've actually never ridden a gaited horse, but I know they are really smooth and not bouncy at all. At least that's what I've heard. Hahaha oh my gosh Kootie Bug! That is too funny!! Now every time I look at him I may just laugh thinking of that nickname! That's a funny one!!

How does Shadow do as a gaited gymkhana horse? I thought it was a bit harder for them to make tight turns? I've seen gaited horses show in gymkhana, but they usually stay in the slower divisions? I'm lucky enough to say Koot lives in my backyard :D I get to see and check on him lots throughout the day. I live in an entire neighborhood where everyone has their horses in their backyards. What about Shadow? From the pictures it looks like you two live on a ranch? Let's see I ride Koot probably 3 times a week. But he usually gets out everyday. The place I ride is literally a 10 min walk so it's very easy to just walk him up there to the turn out arena and let him be silly. Sorry this is soo long! Voted.

Hello handsome Shadow...Skelator belongs to a friend who got some unusual colored mares to see if he could get mules with color. Most are brown or sorrel. Mule people will pay big money for mules with color. That pic was taken the day Skelator was born and I haven't seen him since so I don't know what he looks like now. I just put it on Betsy's page so people could see how unusual he is. Kind of creepy looking really:)Have a great day...leaving a vote

I like the new profile picture :) I'm sorry to hear it's tough to find some shows near you. Ya, all of the shows I go to are just gymkhana shows because that is all I show in right now. That is awesome that you and Shadow are cantering the entire barrel pattern!!!!! Congrats on that :D Sounds like you two have improved so much in a short amount of time. I'm glad you decided against selling him..I know you were pretty upset about it. And you're right about the problems. A new horse means new problems and the fact that you were able to solve some of Shadow's problems is great news!!! Yay!

I actually used an editing system to create my photo album thing, but I'm sure if you just google photo albums you can find something. I think you can make photo albums at and share them with people? Left a vote.

We are racking right along with Tuesday votes for friends:) Monday started wet and ended wet, but in between all that Fancy and I had a pretty good day. I groomed Fancy and hand walked her around the neighborhood after lunch time and we just had fun. It was soo cool. This cool weather is making my elbows ache, can't wait for the warm weather to return:)

Thanks for the comment, visiting and voting for Fancy. She has been so fun to work with. I just love having her even I don't know much about gaited horses. You must have developed a love for the gaited horses too. When you make a profile for your other horse please let us know. I would love to see him. I can't wait to ride out one day. I know it is going to be such fun! Your Shadow is a handsome guy.

Oh no worries, glad to hear from you though. And that's great that Shadow is getting better and you're having to use the emergency brake less and less :) I haven't ridden Koot much that past week, but the few weeks before that we were going on a trail ride about once or twice a week! He was really happy! Hopefully I can get back out on the trail soon. I rode Koot bareback for a little bit today, but it is 85 degrees so I didn't want to ride too long in that heat!

A horse who's afraid of things like deer needs more training and the best thing for him is Exposure to the things that are scaring him.

I think you should consider keeping him and working on his trail skills and gait. In all honesty, a Mt Horse who trots, who isn't well gaited, and who is afraid of things on the trail is not going to sell well. Well gaited, well trained, black geldings are selling @ $4000 right now. So you'll probably get @ $2500-$3000 for your horse if you try to sell him. Something to consider. If he's steady on the trail, quiet, doesn't take off running unless asked, and gaits consistently and smoothly you'll be able to price him between $3500-4500.

Good luck regardless of what you decide! Although I can hear how much you love him, so I think you should keep him! <g>

I'm sorry to hear that Shadow is for sale. Feel free to email me I'd be happy to spread the word. I have lots of people looking for a good horse.

Why won't he do well in the Mountains though? No offense but he's a MOUNTAIN horse! <G> Seriously they are a hardy breed and I can't imagine any mountain condition that this breed would not do well in.

Ya horses have there good and bad days. I hope you know the "emergency brake" trick if Shadow ever bolts and you can't get him to stop? I've never had to use that on Koot, but he's always wayy happier about galloping on trail rides then at horse shows. Must be something about not having any gates blocking their way lol. Koot's training is going well. We had our first gymkhana show over the weekend and didn't do too bad. We have a lot to improve on, but it was a pretty decent start :) Left a vote!

Vote 20! Oh I completely understand what you mean!! If I had to sell Kootenai today I just wouldn't do it. I would try everything in my power not to have to give him up. I think only horse owners realize the bond we share with our horses. They aren't just horses, but best friends, companions, true loves lol. There's not another bond like it. I hope you can work things out and figure out what is best for you and Shadow. Good luck.
