NOVEMBER BUCKET FUND RECEIPT!
$5630 was donated, drop by drop, into the November Bucket Fund to help Autumn!
WOW! You readers are amazing…
Autumn, if you missed the story, is the orphaned filly who was born prematurely in an Auction yard to an emaciated dam (who immediately died after giving birth to Autumn) – was not discovered for hours nor fed… was rescued by HOPE FOR HORSES and spent almost 3 weeks in ICU! Then, after surviving her horrible start, Autumn was rejecting goat’s milk and milk replacer. But, by the miracle of Social Marketing, a nursemare was found 20 minutes away! Autumn is now totally on the road to recovery thanks to Hope for Horses, Bizzy the nursemare and YOU!
The Horse and Man Group donated $5630! That whopping sum was 70% of her vet fees which gave Hope for Horses the freedom to make excellent decisions regarding her care.
Bravo to everyone who helped and all of you who sent good will. Thank you. You all amaze me.
SKODE’S HOLIDAY COOKIES ARE HERE!
So last year I needed to find low sugar/low starch treats for my insulin resistant horse.
After clicking around, I found Skodes.
Now, there are lots of ‘healthy horse treats’ around so I wasn’t too sure about any of their claims. After all, Frosted Flakes are supposed to be good for kids, too…
But, after reading the history behind Skodes and their attention to detail with their recipes/nutritional information, I decided to give them a whirl.
THE COOKIES ARRIVED.
I could smell them before the UPS guy handed over the package. He asked, “Yum! Did Mom send you some cookies?”
Nope. These are treats for the horses…
“They smell pretty dang good.”
So good, in fact, that when I opened up the bag, I grabbed one and took a bite.
Blech. Not tasty to a human but I knew the horses would probably love them… and, I tasted no molasses or sugars.
OMG. I was swarmed. The dogs wanted them, the horses were battling each other to get close to me… it was a cookie war zone! I had bought horsie-crack in the form of healthy treats! I swear!
If you’d like to read that former post about Skodes Horse Treats click here.
This year, I wanted you to know that the Skodes Holiday treats are BACK – as well as all the other items they sell all year ’round.
I WANT TO TRY…
I was clicking around the website, trying to get ideas for Xmas gifts and I found a few new items that I’d like to try.
1) The BULK COOKIE SALES bag:
I thought I could make several gift bags from this one big bag – and it is on SALE. It looks divine and I know it will have a lovely fragrance. I think little bags would be a great party favor or treat for any horse person.
Here is what the website says:

I’ve not tried the Trail Mixes but I love the names…
