First.. I doubt I can find words to express to you how relieved, how hopeful – and how blessed I have felt over the last 24 hours – thank you all for jumping in and helping in so many ways with Mama Tess. The overwhelming outpouring of concern for both myself and MT – has washed over me with a warmth and strength I didn’t know could exist. Even though my horse is very sick, I feel very lucky.

If one doesn’t have the time to read my blogs and maybe just skims the posts or simply reads the photo captions, they might not understand that this venture was booked and paid for (non-refundable, all inclusive) in February. Hubby is funding any incidentals.

So, thank you for coming along with me… and I can promise you that not a dime of Tess’ Bucket Fund money (or my paycheck) will go towards anything but Tess’ medical bills.
DAY ONE: CASPER TO TETON VILLAGE
