Slewus

If we have out tattoo numbers correct, it looks like the OTTB, we have named Slewus (JC reg name Abbi's Choice), earned $379,181.00. After all that, he ended up at Mike's crummy auction in CA, where he was saved for a measly $240.00.

Very sad. But, we are the lucky ones, we get to bring this gelding to Shiloh and help him find a new life.

Another racehorse, JUST THROWN AWAY!

This is so sad. These horses race their hearts out and are tossed out into an auction where they are poked, prodded, kicked, and they are depressed.

I wish I could rescue them ALL! So, a big THANK YOU for what you do and for saving this group!

GREED at it's worst!!! I wish KARMA worked on a bigger scale. Maybe then, Shiloh wouldn't have to work so hard to save so many. What a shame.

Now might be a good time to remind people of www.goodsearch.com where you can nominate Shiloh to receive a donation every time you do a search on the site. Everyone does that once, and tell your friends, we may be able to get some of the money back!

Hello All-
Just got back from Hawaii with hubby, and had to log on to see what had been happening at Shiloh... I can't believe all that's happened in 9 days! What kind of person would steal from people at a horse auction, who are there to save lives??? Makes me wonder if all the "enemy" personnel were accounted for during the time of the crime... I'll be there this weekend to let the new kids know what 100 lbs of carrots looks like...
