Thursday, 9/11

A sad day as we all remember 9/11 and where we were when the attack began. It's hard to imagine that it has been seven years already...

Something that really moved me was this new battleship named The USS New York. It was made with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center.

The Ship's motto: "Never Forget".
We remember all of the people who lost their lives that day, and we also must never forget.

A great day out at the rescue, beautiful weather and great people helping us out.

Sitka and Sunday returned, Sunday was so excited to get out of the trailer, he hopped right out before we could stop him! His magic shoes are looking good, but we added some Duct tape, so now they are a futuristic silver color.

We moved Tecate back out to Big Vacation Village, his summer sores have healed up. Harlow, Elvis, and Charmin had some fun together in the turn out. All the horses were feeling great today and most got some fun turn out time.

Always the trouble maker, Wanderer Charlie hopped into the trailer after Sitka and Sunday got out.
The burros in front of the barn...
We moved sweet Priceless into Assisted Living to help him gain more weight. Here he is eating his Equine Senior.
Here is Priceless hanging out by one of the water barrels... He is such a gentle guy.
Philadelphia gets groomed...
Jill's 2 1/2 year old Freisian filly, Zuiderzee, plays with her grooming box. Some of you might remember how small she was when she arrived two years ago. She is growing up and is almost as big as Tanis now!

Shiloh supporter, Mikey, is in the process of picking up an older blind Appaloosa mare from an Idaho livestock auction yard. The horse received no bids at the sale last week and the owner never came back to claim her. Shiloh is offering her a home and Mikey, who was instrumental in her rescue from the sale, is driving out to pick her up. The blind mare will arrive sometime late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. You can read more about Mikey's trip here! Thank you Mikey!
