We've had great support for Sitka's Magic Leg Fund, thank you! Andrea from the UK is donating a painting for us to raffle off at the Pet Expo and I will be offering one of Tony's prints as a raffle prize as well. I have had several caring people email me that they feel bad that they cannot donate any money right now to her Fund. I just want to remind everyone that emotional support can be just as important as financial support when there is a horse in need. We appreciate everyone out there who reads the blog on a regular basis and follows the lives of all the animals at Shiloh...
Boarders can now pay their monthly boarding fees online with Paypal. Please go here to pay with this new feature. (Remember, your boarding fees are paid to Jill Curtis and Shiloh Ranch directly, not to Shiloh. The charity and the boarding business are kept separate.)
We are now accepting sign ups for the Parelli Clinic which will be held December 5-6, 2008 at Shiloh. Please email Dave Hickey at Hickey589@aol.com to sign up for the clinic or for more information. If there is enough interest, we are hoping to add a third day for Level One, Part Two which includes saddling and riding. Email Dave to sign up. Select Shiloh Horses are available for use in the clinic, please email Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about using one of our horses.
Lastly, The Animal House in Pahrump, NV is kindly donating 7-8 tons of old feed to the Shiloh animals. It is a variety of feed ranging from horse to chicken and pig food (if it can't be fed to the horses- the goats and pigs will sure love it!). Now we have to figure out how to get it to the rescue. The bags are on pallets. Is there anyone in Pahrump who might be able to bring all or some of it out to the rescue? Shiloh will reimburse you for your gas! You will need a truck and/or a horse trailer. Any ideas?
And LOOK at Breezie's baby, Whirlwind, now named Zoey. She looks FANTASTIC! She is now 7 months old and was just recently weaned from her mom. What a beauty! And more good news, she is going to be adopted by her Foster Family (who adopted her mom Breezie). What a great ending to her Shiloh story and what a great beginning to the rest of her life!
