We gathered out ropes, the tractor and some man and woman power and up she went but we all slowly walked her back down to a nice flat area of grass.

It was one step at a time for all of us.

Hail Mary improved but still had trouble getting up but she went down much less frequently. She became the favorite of a very lovely couple, Steve and Linda. They planned to move from their home and buy a farm with a nice barn. They adopted Hail Mary. Our dear Hail Mary passed away before they moved but she died in loving arms.

Some people may think it was a waste of time. We know it was a time of love and care, hope and dreams.
