The Story

Mark and Karen Plumlee are wonderful friends, neighbors, and horsemen who have given so much to the horse community over the years. They need our help! Please see the text in the first update to gain an understanding of why they need help. (I tried to put it here, but limited text allowed)

This fund raiser is meant to alleviate the $100,000 in legal expenses which are the most pressing current need. I am hoping we get enough support to help out more, and will increase the goal if it looks feasible.

Mark and Karen have done an immeasurable amount of good for the community. Some may know them from Misison Farrier School, some from the Hellhat Possee. Some may know them from many smaller projects in between. But those who have met and interacted with these people will know how incredibly kind, honest, and giving they are. This is the right time to give back.
L
If you can, please help financially. Understandably, not everyone can contibute, but please know even a small amount can help. Just as helpful can be sharing this fundraiser with others so please share away. Please also share kind and supportive thoughts with the Plumlees as they truly need our support right now.

Seldom do we have an opportunity to help people more deserving than this.

Funding for this page is linked directly to Mark and Karen's bank account.

From Mark:

Today, this cowboy and his wife are thankful to the following: Terry Neill, Deborah Nich-Johnston, Jean Wood, Pamela Lindsay, Tiffany and Walker Dixon, Pat Pehling, Ross Keller, Karen Finlayson, Clayton & Angela Cockrum. Everyday we are humbled by the support and caring our community of friends and Karen's Posse members have shown us thru the You Caring and the PayPal sites. We have had 95 people donate thru YouCaring and another 15 through PayPal. I can't even tell you how much your gifts mean to us. Every dollar adds up and we'll be able to at least start paying the experts that testified for us in court. That means a lot.

from Karen:

We are thankful this morning for Robin Thiesfeld, Jen Mallahan, Katrina Waag, Julie Grizzle, Gretchen Powell, Christian McCormick, Rebecca Card Swerdloff, Ian Jones, Barbara J Bono, Michelle Davis, Kirstin Becker Kauzlarich, Gayle Forster, Julie Watson, Judith Moore, Lisa Miniken, Lil Red Mule Designs, Suzie Forte, Diane Chapman, Deborah Forrest, Sam Colgan, Shawntel Wilson, Joanne Adams, Kim Alexander, Terese Sandord, Nora Beggs, Chris Allen, Nancy Crosby, Holly DiCrosta. Some are thru YouCaring and others are thru PayPal. We are selling our truck and horse trailer (2004 Freightliner, 2014 Lakota 4-Horse, 2002 Flatbed gooseneck). If we can sell these, it should get us half way there, but we want you to know that we are not sitting idly by. We are trying to be pro-active and get this behind us so we can continue our business. We have a great group of folks here in the Posse, and Mark (the Brim Reaper) and I sincerely thank those who have reached out a helping hand. Thank you for your gifts.
