I have been so worried all day, praying to hear some good news, I just tried to call Bill, but got no answer, just going to his website and seeing all his horses made me so sick and feeling sorry for them all, still hoping to hear that the horses made it out somehow, at least some...I felt almost unable to speak but left a message to Bill that we are praying for them all. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Penni asked for my phone number last night, and I posted it on a message to her, but I am not sure I did it right, as I posted that we were all waiting with baited breath, to hear something from her and it looked like it just added it to last night's message and then posted it! Confused

Sure hoping we hear something soon!

I don't even know what to say. I'm just sitting here crying over the little ones that didn't make it. I can't even begin to imagine how horrible Bill and Wanalyn feel. I am so so sorry:(

Bill said there was 4 ft of water so it was a miracle any horses survived, in my opinion...the thought of them has made me feel sick all day, I actually hurt all over...I cannot comprehend how they must feel, I actually didn't expect him to call me back but thankful to know at least some were saved and they are OK. Still, the Brat Pack Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

I know, I feel the same way; physically ill with this news. I just want to go home and hug my babies. Losing any of the animals is tragic but it's the special little ones that brought us all together and that grab hold of our hearts in such a strong way. I'm praying for a brat pack miracle.

I'm numb - I couldn't sleep at all last night just thinking of the whole situation made me sick as I know how much they love and care for all their babies. I've cried all night and today just thinking of them and wishing there was something I could do to help the whole situation to help make it better in some way or help make Bill and Wanalyn feel better.

Did he happen to mention the goats? I've thought about them too plus they had some donkeys. They are in my thoughts and prayers as well as in Natalie's thoughts and prayers also. I have been thinking of them so much as I know all of us on here have been.
I and Natalie are both sick over it all as we both had the privelege of meeting Bill and Wanalyn and their special brat pack and the rest of their animals. It was when I went on my goat trip - Natalie & I picked up Cathy along the way for her to go with us also. I know the Brat Pack had one of the best homes they could ever ask for and were very well loved.
Here's how I'll always remember the Brat Pack

Here I am with precious Angel - she was having a hard time standing this day and was kinda sore.

Here's a few pix of Vickie grooming Angel!

Vickie, Bill didn't mention the goats, and I was kind of speechless and couldn't think of the right thing to say when he called, so I don't know.. Crying or Very sad His phone number is on his website if you feel like calling. Wink Thanks for posting pics of you and the Brat Pack Wink

Thanks Jeanie - I actually have their numbers in my phone just haven't called as I knew they would be busy and devastated and I'm at work so thought I'd call after work in about 15 minutes here. I will post what I find out after I call.
I'm kinda like you Jeanie - I'm speechless right now. I told Janell last night I don't know why bad things have to happen to such good people. I know when we are born that we are given no guarantees on how our life will go but still - it's just so unbelievable in a way. Seems like this shouldn't be happening. We are such a close knit family on this forum that when one hurts we all hurt - or this is the way with me. I have cried for all of you at one time or another even though I may not post I want you all to know I do care what happens with you.
OK - enough sitting here bawling - have been all day. Haven't gotten a whole lot accomplished at work today. And everyone has asked me what is wrong. I will let you know if I find out anything more then you did Jeanie - thanks for letting us all know what has happened. I'm just am very glad that the both of them are OK. Luv you all and like I've said Bill and Wanalyn are in my thoughts and prayers. And I pray God to give Penni the strength she needs to be able to help them.
