Hey there sweet family,

Yay! There's good news for Wind Chill:

Windchill officially has a new home.

The 9-month-old colt that almost froze to death earlier this month when left outside in sub-zero weather had been rescued by Jeff Tucker and Kathi Davis of Rain Dance Farms in South Range. Windchill's owner Teresa Farmer has officially relinquished ownership to Davis, Davis said this morning.

"Realistically, I think this horse belongs to the entire world," Davis said. "I don't think anyone could claim ownership to him ever again."

Farmer had boarded Windchill at a another South Range farm last fall. Veterinarians who have visited the colt suspect other, bigger horses on the farm had bullied him out of his feed, leaving him dehydrated, malnourished and unable to withstand the cold temperatures, which reached 30 below zero wind chills the night he was rescued.

Initial vet visits were grim. One gave Windchill a 1 percent chance of survival. Another recommended putting him down. He couldn't move his forelegs for days because of severe frostbite, and circulation there was so weak vets were unable to get a pulse.

Now, with the help of a sling to get him to his feet, Windchill is able to stand and walk for hours at a time, Davis said. She said she attributes his dramatic reversal in health to the good wishes coming in from across the world.

"It has to be everybody's prayers and the will on his part," she said. "There's just no way this colt should have survived."

Take care and know that you are loved,

Lana

Windchill rocks.

I just checked out the site for his updates and he's doing really well. He's cute as a button and is one tough contenter. I hope he pulls through all the way.

Wow, how unexpected. It appeared he was doing so good.

So long, Windchill. You were one brave little pony.

Hey there sweet family,

Jeff said Windchill died of secondary complications due to starvation. Essentially, in a bid to stay alive, Windchillís body had consumed too much of its own tissue for him to make it. When he began eating, gaining weight, get taller, stronger and more active, his poor damaged heart wasn't able to keep up. He died in his sleep Friday night.

Take care and know that you are loved,

Lana

This is so sad. It's always hard for me to fathom cruelty to any living being. Hope Windchill is running free in some endless pasture now.
