In the meantime, my father contracted a bad infection known as "C. diff", probably at the hospital while visiting Mom. He is also hospitalized with a plan to be transferred to a skilled nursing facility until he's 100% better. They don't want him to infect Mom.
I live about 80 minutes away from my parents. Luckily my three siblings all live closer, but the stress has been great.
Now that you have the background, I come to the story that goes with the photo. A couple of days ago I brushed Ulani outside. When I do that, I usually just leave the hair in the grass. Maybe a bird will line her nest with it, or it will discourage pesky raccoons from visiting.
This morning when I went out to the barn, I saw something that startled me. Along with all of the gray hair, there were a couple of clumps of tawny. Ulani does not have tawny hair. That was Oskar's color.
I think he's letting me know he's looking out for me.
