“A true story that immediately will consume any horse advocate with
passion, hope, inspiration, and struggle.”
—Carolyn Stull, School of Veterinary
Medicine, University of California, Davis
One bitterly cold winter afternoon, a nine-month-old colt—extremely weak,
starving, left to die—was frozen to the rock-hard white landscape of a northern
Wisconsin pasture. His whinny for help barely carried through thirty-mile-an-
hour winds lashing snow and ice against his thin coat. But somewhere inside him
a light refused to go out.
The colt’s call for help was answered, and that light inspired a worldwide
response to his story. The struggle of the little colt, called Windchill by his rescu-
ers, was reported widely, and soon 1.2 million people were following Windchill’s
progress on a blog and webcam.
Warmed by Windchill
tells how Jeffrey L. Tucker, owner of nearby Raindance
Farms, and Kathi Davis, owner of a horse training operation co-located at Rain-
dance, rescued and cared for the colt, aided by an outpouring of assistance. Dona-
tions of money, feed, blankets, and other supplies streamed in as round-the-clock
volunteers tried to save Windchill.
Warmed by Windchill
