I thought we might lose Old Red on Easter.
Last night he laid down in the sun and didn't get up. When I went out to check on him he did jump up, but laid down again.
We took him to a stall and gave him water and food. He ate and drank, but since he's so old, I didn't know if he'd survive the night.
He is risen.
He's out in the sunshine, eating and bossing Beautiful around. (She deserves it. She was taking advantage of him last night when he was in the dumps.)
Lucky us, we still have Old Red! Don't know what was bothering him last night, but I guess it could have been anything. We'll keep watching.
It would NOT have been a happy Easter without him and we need our happiness today. We have a lot planned--lots of family coming over and a huge Easter egg hunt for the kids AND adults!
Happy Easter, everyone!
PS. Ordered a 70 percent block out mask from Cashel--ears, eyes and nose coverage--tried it out on Cowboy in the sunshine yesterday--no head shaking--stayed on. Keep your fingers crossed!
