A Super Windy Weds!

Today started out beautiful, we actually had tank tops on, but by noon the wind was whipping! There was so much dust and sand in the air that you could hardly see at times!

Still, we were busy. We had three new arrivals last night.

Three Thoroughbreds arrived from the Fallon, Nevada feedlot. These three horses were scheduled to ship to slaughter, but we said we would take them. They were saved with donated funds from the Fans of Barbaro, a group of people who help needy horses in the name of racehorse, Barbaro. The two geldings and one mare are all very friendly, a bit thin, but very nice horses. See all three new arrivals here!

Echo Echo update: He is doing so much better, looking and feeling great! He is starting to show more stallion behavior, which is a good siogn. Visit his page to see how much better he is looking!

Gold Strike, one of the foals born at Shiloh last year, went on to his new home today. He is such a cutie! Geoff trimmed lots of horses, including some of the babies, and all three new horses. Some of the babies and the little ponies have been moved into the Mare Motel where they will get more attention, as they will be right in the middle of all the daily action.

We had some new boarders check out the ranch, their two horses will come to Shiloh this coming Friday. They are two pregnant mares who will have their foals at Shiloh.

We are working hard to get everything in order for the clinic, but with the wind, today it was a losing battle! Buckets, blankets, chairs, etc were blowing all over the place!

We had that storm Wednesday, too! Snow in our local mountains! In fact, it even snowed in Desert Hot Springs and Palm Springs for only the 5th time in recorded history! We drove up to our mountains today and they were so pretty!
