While we are in Montreal, Shiloh's work continues...
Some sad news to tell as sweet old Alamo passed away last night of natural causes. Alamo was found early this morning in his Gummie pen with his friends, Shadow and Starwood, standing close by. There was no sign of a struggle. Alamo was approx 32 years old and had begun to really show his age. We had the vet check him over about two months ago because he was beginning to lose weight and become much slower, the vet told us it was old age catching up. Just last week we moved him from Little Vacation Village into Gummie I, where he would basically have free feed Equine Senior. He was happy and content right up to the end. Just a few days ago, he was bathed and groomed by some volunteers. As sad as it is to lose one of these special horses, we are so happy that he was able to live out his natural life and pass away surrounded by his herd mates.
We are going to have a special class in the Shiloh Equine Educational Series. Much Ado About Mustangs! It will be taught by Eric, Shiloh's Mustang expert on September 13 at 10am. Please read more about this class!
We missed a big birthday party at Shiloh, as Shiloh Boarder Gus turned two years old! From what I hear there was cake for everyone and people and horses alike had a great time together.
Gus and Borrego Celebrate...Gus' cake!
Here are some pictures from yesterday's (Saturday's) activities:
