You all may remember CARTER. She has been a pain in my butt since she was born and is most famous for convincing everyone she'd decapitated a leg.

Last night she took her accomplishments to a whole new level. She nearly died of hypothermia.

See we have a lot of this on the ground:

12-19-08 029

Which means its really cold. We've had so much snow in the last several days that it was actually taller than her.  So at some point yesterday she must of gone out in it and gotten chilled.

Late last night I stepped out to see if the new bout of snow had arrived, and happened to hear a weak cry coming from the barn. I wasn't dressed at all for the weather(just had 'indoor' clothes on) so I grabbed some boots and quickly rushed out to the barn and found her curled up under the hay bunk.

Brought her in and started warming her up from some horridly cold temp(no idea what as I was more concerned about her than what I was working from but it was well below 94 degrees).

Got her to warm up and pulled her through, but now she is stuck living in the house until the snow melts a little or she grows whatever happens first.
