Friday's Adventures...

A calm and beautiful day. The sun was warm and many of the horses spent the day laying down in the sun, recovering from the 40 mile an hour winds from yesterday.

But, just to remind us all that things can quickly turn around, as I type this Bombay is being taken into the vet clinic with a case of colic. She was a bit colicy this morning, and was treated at Shiloh and seemed better. But, as can be the case, she began to show signs again about an hour ago. So, Leo is bringing her in, better safe than sorry we like to say. With the high winds we had all day yesterday, she probably did not drink as much water as she should have and may just be a bit impacted. I will update as soon as we know something... She can say hit to Chief for all of us when she is in there!

Back to today:

This is to be our new Isolation turn out area. This will enable the isolated horses to be turned out far away from the rest of the population.

Our new SUPER ISOLATION area's perimeter fence. This will really help us keep the isolated horses far away and out of contact with everyone else...

More of the fencing...

Crusoe, who is currently in isolation with a respiratory infection, enjoys the extra space and had some fun. He is obviously feeling better!


Back on the other side of the ranch:
Elisa worked with Inspirada who is doing well in her training...

The guys fixed a broken water pipe...

Elisa, Laurie, and Cedar had lesson...

Capone, who has really gained a lot of weight, enjoyed his Equine Senior in the Mare Motel...

Vanilla, who is still super hairy but looking better, out in the Cuckoo's Nest Pasture...

While Trigger ate off of the Meals on Wheels feed cart... "Watch out for Sally!"

Sweetie waiting for her Equine Senior... "Come on Sally, hurry it up!"

Val waits too...

We moved Rugrat into the barn stall with Daisy and Flower. She seems very happy there and settled right in...

would you ever clip the furry horses?

Shiloh does clip the furry guys when it gets hot. We have alot of older horses with Cushings who are clipped a few times throughout the summer to keep them comfortable. It's still a bit too cold at night to clip just yet...

Adios!
