Whisper went down tonight and gave her foster mom a scare. But I had her bring out the grain, give her a few bites and then take it away and sure enough, Whisper got herself right up. Crisis averted. Good girl, Whisper!
Monica checked on Whisper every couple hours throughout the night, and while she was usually down, she jumped right up when Monica came in as she now understands that Monica is the food lady. She’s getting up quickly and gracefully now — no problem — just like a big girl! I am so proud of her and so relieved (for a while there I thought she was going to have to go back to Pilchuck…)
