What is one thing readers might not know about you?
Marie: My paternal grandfather was a cattle rancher who bred and raised Clydesdales as a hobby. (He even sold a couple to Budweiser, over the years.) He used them to feed his cattle every single day, long after most ranchers had switched to tractors or trucks. The horses pulled a flatbed wagon most of the year, and a sleigh in the winter. As a kid, I loved to go feed the cows with him. My grandmother would bundle me up and set me on the hay bails. My grandfather didn’t even need a second hand because the horses were trained to verbal cues, so he could just tie the reins to the front of the wagon and steer them verbally while he tossed the hay out. I’m very sad my daughter will never experience a true horse-drawn sleigh ride with him.
