We are having some nighttime lows of about 20 degrees and high winds, but it is clear and we are more fortunate than much of the country. The equines are getting extra hay to generate more body heat.  Some people mistakingly think they should increase grain in cold weather, but the truth is horses generate more body heat by digesting the complex carbs and fiber in grass hay. Wilbur got double rations of Elder Pet Pig food today, too.

The dogs don’t mind the cold and spent hours playing outdoors, but 5 of them wear their coats. The other 5  either have long hair or want nothing to do with dog clothing.

We sponsored and collected funds to save a nice dog in Texas this week. He was surrendered because his owner said he had grown “too big”. How ridiculous! He only needed $100 of vetting/neuter to be able to escape being put to sleep at the Irvine Shelter. The mgr. at Irvine is a wonderful gal and works hard to make it easy for rescues to take place. “Soni” goes to his foster home in Texas Friday and will be looking for a forever home.

We also are trying to save “Daisy”, a nice possible Carolina Dog. She is listed as a Shiba Inu mix, but the owner of a Carolina Dog pointed out that she appears to be a Carolina Dog. She is spayed, housebroken, heart worm negative and good with dogs & cats. JERAS can get her fees waived and she has $125 in a fund which could help transport her to a new home. Contact us if you might want to adopt her. She is also in the Dallas area at the Irvine Shelter.

Daisy needs a home!
