A super busy weekend at the rescue!
Elisa's Equine Biology class was a hit! She had lots of people and everyone learned alot. Elisa worked very hard to make this a very educational class for everyone and she is a very good teacher. This was the first class of the Shiloh Summer Education Series, we are already planning more to cover topics like feeding, conformation, breeds and colors, first aid, teeth, etc...
Two Shiloh horses left for their new homes today. Spirit left on Sunday for Arizona and Martini, the Fallon auction Arab mare, was happily already adopted by Carol of Indian Springs, NV. More horses will leave this weekend, as Godspeed and Moses go to their foster home, Cooper goes to his new adoptive home, Boarder Maverick goes to Utah, and Boarders Noname and Lincoln are off to Pahrump where Shiloh Horse, Slewus, will also be fostered.
Big excitement out in Big Vacation Village when Trooper, now renamed Zanthos by his adoptive family, entered the pasture! Look at Belmont, the big chestnut with the crippled leg. He gets around great and even joins in the chase. Joining the gallop are Philidelphia, adopted horse Fortune, and Tioga (the paint with the UV sheet).
We had lots of volunteers and visitors, some first timers. Kelly's "Carrot Brigade" handed out treats to all the horses and other animals, who were all waiting at attention!
Another fun weekend at the ranch!
