Before and Afters for the "Fab Five"

Well, it has been exactly two weeks since the Dreamchaser Horses arrived at Shiloh.


All five of the horses have settled in and made great changes in their attitudes. They are no longer depressed, but have begun to blossom and enjoy their surroundings and interaction with the volunteers. They are interested now in what is going on around them. It really makes us feel good to see them come into their own. Levi is scheduled to be gelded on March 10th, which will really improve his quality of life at the rescue and allow him more contact with other horses.


All five have gained weight- yes, it is possible in just two short weeks. The horses have been on free feed good quality grass mix hay, Alfalfa/Grass hay pellets, and we are just now starting small quantities of Equine Senior.


Check out these pics and see for your self what the correct diet can do for horses!

Amazing transformation!Lovely looks like a perfect halter horse the way she's standing...looking good!The rest of the fab five look awesome...in a couple of months they won't look the same.Question how are the white horse eyes coming along & the problem with his sheath? Once everyone gets their hooves trimmed they will feel so much better.Can't wait to see little Levi.Wonderful dedication Ladies and all the volunteers for loving on these guys! Thank you.

In just 2 short weeks, the ribs MAGICALLY disappear!

Tanis made friends with Cloudy, Val and Sweetie this afternoon. He was turned out next to them. He seemed to find Sweetie especially interesting ;-)

Go Shiloh!
