Dan's Feed Bin, Superior, WI, generously offered to accept the donations or gifts for Windchill and apply
it to his supplement and feed needs and Dan helped immensely with this.
The funds we receive in the days ahead will be used to help cover the
remaining costs from Windchill's care as we finally settle down and figure out
who we owe for what, and any remaining or ongoing contributions will go towards
the creation of Windchill's foundation, which is already under development.
Artist Deborah Sprague painted a beautiful picture of Windchill with his buddy
Walker that she has up for auction until February 29th. Proceeds are going to
the Windchill Fund to help with his medical costs and then the startup of his
Wind Chill Painting Auction (click to see Deb's Wind Chill site)

Deb Sprague has been getting a bunch of email from people asking about other
items with Windchill's picture on it and she's created a beautiful purse with
another picture of him on there. Click on the link above - she does amazing
work, I don't know how she can capture his eyes like that but it's beautiful!
To say that we're humbled by the tremendous outpouring of sympathy, thoughts and
prayers would be an understatement.
Wind Chill seems to have touched a lot of
people's hearts as much as he has all of ours. He was a very special little guy -
with bright sparkling eyes, and if he heard one of us near his stall he
eager to lift his head and whinny a "hello come see me please." I don't know if
there's a way to say "thank you" enough to those that volunteered to sit
with him so that whether he lived or he died - he didn't face it alone. Thanks
to our neighbors for bringing warm food over and taking shifts to relieve us
from the cold and get things done around the farm. David, Stacy, Karen & Tom,
Larry & Char, Gary & Polly, Aaron, Kris & Brook - thank you so much for all you
did for a little colt who learned what it was like to have a family.
To those that have been calling, emailing and offering support - God bless
everyone of you and thank you as well.
