Saturday's Adventures

Well, we got two new Pot Belly Pigs at Shiloh! The bigger girl is Pigmalion and the baby is Bacon Bits. Bacon Bits lives with Jimmy Dean in the stall, but roams freely during the day.

Elisa teaches horse colors using Charity. She taught colors and markings, everyone had a great time and took lots of notes.

Jill and Sally's long time friend, Susan, gave a talk about the horses of Mongolia. Susan teaches business development in Mongolia and created a Foundation to help Kazakh women of Mongolia earn their own livings by creating and selling their traditional handwork. This handwork is called Altai Craft and is really beautiful. Please check out their products, it's a wonderful Foundation which has truly transformed women's lives. Go to the Altai Craft Website.

And Tony thanked these two generous welders who donated their services to the Shiloh horses. They were working on the Hospice corral panels. THANK YOU!




Sitka and her Magic Leg. Little Sunday, who is now a healthy 6 month old, began his weaning process today. He is doing really well and is in with his babysitter and best buddy, Crusoe in the Hospice.
