Tag Archives: Skode’s Horse Treats

OMG: SKODE’S (Of Skode’s Horse Treats) BURNED DOWN yesterday!!! She lost everything! I’m passing the hat to help raise her spirits today… Can we put her on our strong shoulders for just one day?!






I am in shock.

Yesterday I wrote about my fabulous box of Skode’s Horse Treat cookies that had just arrived – and about my baking of horsey brownies from the mix I had purchased…

This was my box of Skode's Treats that had just arrived... she packed this with such love - little did she know that her whole world would be turned upsidedown in a matter of days.

This was my box of Skode’s Treats that had just arrived… she packed this with such love – little did she know that her whole world would be turned upsidedown in a matter of days.

And today I found out that Skode’s house burned down two days ago!  She lost everything except her animals and what she was wearing.

E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

Her business is shut down until she can figure out her life and get things running again.

Oh my…

I cannot imagine losing every photo, every cherished momento, every favorite thing, all my clothes, all my business stuff, all of my files, all of my furniture, all of my notes stuck to my computer, all of my books, all of my bath stuff, every bit of jewelry, every utensil, every favorite linen, irreplaceable gifts, my business started from scratch … ALL GONE.

She lost everything in the fire except her animals and the clothes she was wearing.

She lost everything in the fire except her animals and the clothes she was wearing.

Wow.

And to top it off, she had just moved there two weeks ago.  She had already sorted out her favorite things to bring on this move – and it all went up in smoke.

Can we help her?

We cannot buy any cookies because she cannot fill any orders… but maybe we can buy cookie goodwill and send along some much needed moral support in the way of a few dollars.

If you would like to send her a note, she is using her FB page linked here.

LET’S COME TOGETHER AND RAISE HER UP A BIT TODAY, SHALL WE?

Today, we will have a one-day Bucket Fund for Skode’s Horse Treats – so that she can rebuild and make our horses some cookies in the near future.  Brave Girl.

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.

 

The final Bucket Fund payment to Hope for Horses for Autumn. Thank you!

 

The first installment which helped with the hospital fees.

 

 

SKODE’S HOLIDAY COOKIES ARE HERE!

skodes holiday horse treats

Skode's Holiday Horse Treats 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.

Yum!

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.”

They did.

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.

Ginger Snap cookies!

ONCE OUTSIDE

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!
