The Weekend

A busy and windy weekend...

Saturday:


Sally does double duty and leads Woody from the turn out as Dude follows...

While he eats, Capone gets groomed by a volunteer...

Tumbleweed gets some attention. She spent a while in the turn out and wandered a little bit... Here Sally checks her flymask which is protecting her eyes during the winds..

Woody looking good in the turn out...

Sabine, who has a fracture, hobbled around on her cast and crutches. Poor Sabine!

Coby looking cute!

Jill and Sally cut wood for new signs...

Jill is painting the signs...

Capone wandered freely...

Some cute birds...

Charlie looking wind blown!


Sunday:

Well, a "new" horse was discovered early Sunday morning. She had been put into Shiloh's gate at some point in the night and abandoned. The guys never heard anything and she was found early the next morning lying in the big turn out against the fence by Assisted Living. Her back legs are cut and scarred up, from possibly tripping, although we don't know for sure. Felipe fell in love with her at first sight- and she is now his horse.

She settled in. As sad as it is, we really have no recourse for her dumping. I guess we can say at least she was dumped at the rescue, not in the desert like some of the others?

Slew took a nap on some hay...

Trigger got a hug!

Apache was moved into the Bungalows where she had some fun!

Sandy and John working hard on Shiloh's Store/Gift Shop...

Part of the Shiloh crew- hey, where are your Shiloh shirts!

John and the soon to be store. We are excited about The Shiloh Shop, we will be able to sell our Shiloh Logo Wear, Horseshoes, Used Tack and equipment, and more... Great work guys!

are you worried that more horses are going to be 'found' on your property? i would recommend security camera but it would discourage someone leaving the horse and they would just dump it in the desert. so its a tough situation

We are worried more horses will be dumped at Shiloh. It's so hard because we don't want them dumped to die in the desert, but we don't want them dumped at Shiloh either. We want people to be responsible.

For now we are being more vigilant and are looking into possibly putting up cameras.

I hated to even post about the new horse, thinking it might give other irresponsible people ideas.
