Honeybandit & friends wish you'd been there!

Carrot cake, anyone?

Dear readers,
Most of you had to miss the wild horse birthday party in Shingletown, California. Thanks to Palomino, though, you can pretend.

Hi Ya'll,

We just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came and shared our day. It was absolutely fabulous, and although Honey Bandit wasn't too sure about his birthday cake, he posed for pictures like a pro as usual. Chilly Pepper, on the other hand, loved her cake, and scarfed it up as fast as she could. She didn't even wait for the pictures.
We were truly touched by the wonderful turnout of guests, and Honey Bandit & Chilly Pepper truly appreciated their birthday presents.
When I saw the tears in the eyes of the people looking at photos of Honeybandit's first rocky days, and then looking at him today, it reminds me again why we do this.

Take care and God Bless!

Palomino & the critters.

YOU Bought the Bullet

From the Bureau of Land Mangement, here's the short story of a very short life:

Wednesday/Aug. 17
Summary: The BLM gathered 25 horses today. The BLM shipped 34 horses to Gunnison.
Animals gathered: 25 (5 studs, 13 mares, 7 foals)
Gather related animal deaths: 1
Cause: A stud and four-month old foal/filly broke away from a group going into the gather trap. The stud jumped an adjacent barrier fence and ran away. The foal tried repeatedly to jump the fence but could not, and received multiple severe lacerations and had to be euthanized. The foal's mother was captured with the group.

Do you live in the U.S.?
YOU paid the helicopter pilot who terrorized this May-born filly into the trap.
YOU paid for the the fence she couldn't jump, following her sire to freedom.
And, when BLM decreed she was too badly hurt to live,
YOU bought the bullet that ended her 16th week of life.

Dear Readers,
Cheers for my friend and Wild Horse Preservation League leader Bonnie Matton! Bonnie will be featured in CNN's upcoming "Jews in Nevada," based on the
John P. Marshall book of the same name.

Bonnie successfully works, thinks and "nice"s people from all viewpoints and she is totally amazing.
Happy trails,

Dear Readers,
When I was honored by the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame for "mid-career excellence" the words brought me up short.
Six romances + 36 middle grade PHANTOMS + 1 YA novel + a stampede of non-fiction articles --!
I don't think I'll double that count, but I've been wrong before about my runaway muse.
I do want to take my career in several different directions and I'm fortunate that two women of rare taste and judgment :) will have my back!

Karen Solem ofSpencerhill Ltd. my longtime agent and world-class communicator, represents me with all things PHANTOM and she's encouraged me to consider writing a new West work of women's fiction. That's her specialty and I have this idea...
I met Abigail Saumon of Red Fox Literarya few years ago at a SCBWI weekend retreat at St. Mary's Art Center in Virginia City, Nevada.
Then, she was an editor. Now, she's the head of her own agency and we're exploring new adventures for YA and younger readers. I'm excited by her energetic personality and fresh approach to the crazy world of publishing.

I love storytelling and I wouldn't get to work and play at it without my readers.
Hugs to you all and THANKS!
