I was wearing a million layers of clothes. Although Saturday was a heat wave compared to Sunday. On Sunday it was so bitter and windy that I didn't even ride. Gusty wind is too much. I did go over and groom Lilly and gave her some carrots. She did not seem to be cold at all. Bill said: Of course she's not cold. She's being a horse!
On Saturday night as the weather became wretched, Bill was up all night with Bucky the donkey who was colicking! He was so seriously colicking that Bill thought he was going to die! It is with great relief and joy that I can tell you Bucky got better! Bill kept him on his feet, walking up and down the road in the pitch black dead of night. He gave him maalox and something else that I forget the name of. He called the vet who gave him advice and called three times in the night to check in. By morning, Bucky began to nibble an apple. So even though Sunday was bad in terms of weather, it was very joyous in other ways.
Is that crazy? I don't think so.
