A cold and wet Thursday

There was tons of snow in the pass today! The drive to Shiloh was beautiful and the snow stayed on the mountains throughout the day.

It had rained last night, everything was dripping and a bit muddy. But the rain had cleaned the dust off all the red shelters and red roofs, making everthing look shiny and new.

Many of the horses spent the morning laying in the sun in the pastures and corrals. At one point almost half of the horses in the Big Pasture were laying down, relaxing and soaking up the warmth.

Beau was pulled out of "The Cuckoo's Nest" pasture to have a leg wound treated, probably from rough housing with another gelding. He was put on antibiodics and will spend a few days in the barn where we can keep a close eye on him. Booty's infected leg wound was also cleaned, flushed, and re-wrapped. He is recovering, but still on antibiodics, which he hates.

It's supposed to rain again tonight, so we made sure everything was covered and blankets were secure.

BG is still VERY angry at us for his gelding procedure, he is doing fine, but won't let us touch him just yet. Poor guy! The other two goats are recovering well and are out roaming. Slew, the other older goat, stayed close to his newly built straw shelter. (He is a loner and stays away from the other goats.) He can always be found over along the fence line corrals. We built his new house right in his favorite resting spot and he loves it!
