A Sick Sheep

I found Lucy the Sheep unable to get up yesterday, and I fretted about her the rest of the day.  She’s very old (probably in her nineties in human terms), blind, and arthritic.  And it’s very cold.  Ben and Jessica Polston came over with an animal stretcher, and Lucy offered no resistance to being transported to the little barn.  Ethan Pierce ran an electrical cord and we put a space heater on a nearby shelf.  We surrounded her with straw.  This morning when I went out to check on her and she bleated when she heard me and munched on some of the sweet feed I brought .  But we’re bracing ourselves.   She seems ready  to go and be with the Lord.  I’ll keep you posted.
