  3. A picture is worth a thousand words for sure, but there are not enough words to express how sorry we all are that you had to experience this disaster, thankfully you are safe, and since there is a picture thru a window I take it your house survived. Take care of yourself and your critters and stay safe. Hopefully you get some light rains and some grass will sprout, you don't need a gully washer now to take away all the top soil.

  7. No need for words, the pictures are eloquent enough. Heartbreaking. I am happy to see Dexter dog, and that you still have a house. It's not always easy to look for the good things, but we are all so glad that you made it through this. Keeping you in my prayers.

  15. Thank you so much for updating your blog and keeping us informed. You are in my thoughts... everyone's thoughts. I can't get the nightmare out of my head - and I'm not living it, hearing it, smelling it. But, by seeing your pictures I feel a little closer to you. The pictures help me understand just the littlest bit about what you are going through. I wish there were a way to make it 'all better'. Don't we always wish that for folks we care about?!

  21. My heart aches for you, your neighbors, the animals, the trees, and the earth there. But I am glad you and Mr. Foresterman are alive. Glad you found Tomez and that he and Ebony and Sally will heal. Poor animals. Must have been so frightened, but HURRAY that they are eatting and drinking. Your vet is a saint! I hope you can get some sleep and rest

  34. The Amish here use something called Burdock Root Cream for burns. We have tried it and it works well. It stinks though. If you want a jar sent for your animals, I can send it right away. You don't have to take the time to answer this if you don't want some, but if you do, here is my email.

  35. Saw that someone mentioned setting up a paypal button, and I would definitely contribute to help if you do that, or if you email me, I will send you a check. jstonefnp@yahoo.com. Your animals are going to need some special care, and then there will be hay that you will need. Extra money will help! let me know , or i will watch for the button

  37. Terribly sad . . . there are no words to express how sad I am for you, your people, animals, Montana . . . suffice it to say, I care . . . thank you for taking the time to send out messages.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I admire your strength and your willingness to share this sad, unimaginable story. You have been on my mind and I so appreciate the updates.

    I read that the US Dept of Ag is providing discounted and free hay in your area. Perhaps you already know this.

    Sending tremendous hugs to you and yours.

  39. My eyes are full of tears as I catch up on your last few posts. I can't even begin to imagine what you all and the animals endured. Know that you and all your neighbors are in our thoughts during this horrible time. Your vet is truly an angel. The media should be reporting what is going on in Montana, it's never on the news here. I'm glad to see Nancy's comment about the discounted and free hay, I had horrible thoughts that there would be price gouging going on. {{{HUGS}}} to you and all your animals.

  45. As was said, a picture is worth a thousand words, and your pics speak volumes of the devastation. Thanks be to God, that you are alive, if now scared, and praise be to God that your beloved animals are still alive.

    I'm glad to know that you are well, and that you still have a house. Hope the horses and cat heal well and promptly.

    Continued prayers of blessings an Bear hugs, in a horrid situation.
