Animals are impacted too. Farmers may have fences down and buildings destroyed, and they may have lost their entire supply of hay that was put away for the winter. Pastures may be covered in mud and debris. In some areas the water has nowhere to drain and may turn fields into huge popsicles come November - this, according to a news report on the television.
One of my Blog friends wants to help. Gun Diva (aka C.S, Wilson), writes a blog called Tales from the Trail. She also has a book by that title that was recently published. In her book she shares stories from her time as a wrangler, leading trail rides in the Rocky Mountains. GunDiva is donating the proceeds from the sale of her book for the rest of this month to help horse owners in Colorado. Clicking on the image below will take you to the Amazon sales page for her book.
