This is our sweet Shirley dried off, but still shaking. When checking and feeding everyone again before bed, Shirley was not to be found. After a few minutes of hubby and I frantically searching, she was found (in the water tank) up to her neck in cold water, the temp last night was in the 20's. I do have a tank heater, but the water was still very cold she was just making a tiny noise but still standing. When hubby pulled her out and we ran her to the house, she was so cold she could no longer stand. She could not be warmed up to fast so we took her to the coolest room of the house and hubby started rubbing her down while I blow dried her hair on a low setting.
This is her after about an half hour, she is now dry but she is still grinding her teeth and shaking, but both have gotten a little better. Sorry the pictures are so dark, I turned the lights down low trying to keep her calm.
This is her after almost 2 hours she can stand now and move around slowly, her shaking has stopped and she is no longer grinding her teeth. She is going to spend the night in the house (utility room, with blankets on the floor) so I can keep checking on her, now I am just worried about phenomena setting in.
I took Shirley back to the barn this morning, she is acting like nothing happened! We are very lucky we found her when we did, this is her in the barn stall (with a heat lamp) she is the one in the middle. I'll leave her in the stall all day, after spending the night in the house I don't want her to cool down to fast. This evening then the door will be open so she will be back to roaming where she wants, but (hope) no more jumping in the water tank. :)
