WindChill\'s Legacy - No Leniency for the J\'s

The district attorney is having a pre-trial conference on Wednesday, March 26, 2008 at 3PM. Let\'s show the DA how many people are not interested in giving the J\'s any leniency. We don\'t have much time but I know that there are alot of people out there that don\'t want to see that happen. Thanks for signing my petition. I will be keeping it open indefinitely but will print it out and bring it to the DA on 3/25/08. Background on Wind Chill\'s story: On Saturday, February 9th we rescued a 9 month old Walkaloosa (Tennessee Walker - Appaloosa cross) at a farm in the area. Frigid conditions (-10F) mixed with high winds (30mph, wind chill of -50F) finally overcame the little guy\'s already weakened condition. Suffering from dehydration, malnourishment, hypothermia and frostbite, we loaded the colt we\'ve been calling Wind Chill into one of our horse trailers and raced for home. It is with broken hearts that we say this...last night between 9pm and midnight, February 29th, 2008, one of the bravest souls we have ever had the honor of knowing crossed over the rainbow bridge. He passed quietly in his sleep, surrounded by his two sisters, Kisses and Sunday, at the only real home he had ever known. There are no words to describe the loss and emptiness that we feel. Earlier in the evening he had his weekly check up and blood work done, with normal temperature, normal heart rate, and lots of weight gain since his last check up. The experts warned us from the beginning not to get our hopes up, because the odds were just overwhelmingly stacked against him. We never told Windchill that. We accepted each day with him as a gift, we watched his progress in awe - as did the entire nation. This little horse became a beacon of hope for so many who had lost their faith in humanity. He taught us that no matter what happens in your life, no matter how unfair, you can still have faith and you can find love to carry you to a better place. He found the good in the world. After cremation, he was brought home for a proper burial. Once the tears have eased up and we can think clearly again, we will be starting a foundation in his honor. His brave fight will not have been in vain. The WindChill Legacy, Ltd. non-profit organization has been formed and WindChill\'s legacy will live on forever.

My name is Katie Peltier. My husband Keith and I own KAP Farms in Poplar, Wisconsin. We didn\'t know Kathi Davis and Jeff Tucker prior to WindChill. WindChill touched my heart in ways that aren\'t describable. He had such a spirit about him. You could see it in his eyes. I did this petition because I can\'t imagine the saddness in my heart if I hear that the people who lead WindChill to death aren\'t punished. My faith tells me that eventually they will be, one way or another, but I would rather watch it happen in front of me in the courtroom. Thanks for signing my petition. I will be keeping it open indefinitely but will print it out and bring it to the DA on 3/25/08.
