In 1974, I was living in Argyle and practicing veterinary medicine. I received a phone call from a horse owner who had a seventeen-year old mare that was giving birth to her first foal.
I went out to the farm and it was about 100 degrees that day. I could see that this mare wasn’t going to live; she didn’t have the strength and the heat of the day was too great. I said,
“Lord, I need some cool air.”
A thunderstorm formed within minutes, and with it was cold air and the temperature dropped at least into the seventies. Patti was with me and she was praying.
I just stood by and watched; the temperature came down and the mare delivered a live foal with no help from me. We watched both the mare and foal get up. A grandson of the owner of the Baltimore Sun newspaper was visiting the farm that day and witnessed the whole thing. He asked Patti, “Were you praying?”
“Yes,” she said.
He made a statement to the effect that he was wondering if God had done that and he said, “I got my answer...”
The land was west of Lewisville on 1171, owned by a good friend of mine, Jack Christiansen. His son Craig was also present and witnessed the whole thing.
That was one of the greatest miracles I have witnessed. Only God knows what that did for me and Patti that day.
