Monday and the Flamingo Pool Beverage Team!

"What lies behind us
and what lies before us
are tiny matters compared to
what lies within us."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

HUGE THANKs to the Flamingo Hotel and Casino Pool Beverage Team!!! Daria, who works at the Flamingo Pool, had placed a tip jar at the Flamingo Pool over the summer and loose change and tips were placed into the jar for the horses. She presented the money to Sally and me this morning- it totalled $300.00! We CANNOT thank everyone enough for their generosity and kindness to the Shiloh Horses, what a wonderful surprise. We will be putting the $300.00 into our Slaughter Fund for the next auction. One Hundred percent of the donation will go directly to saving a life at the next slaughter auction. THANK YOU BEVERAGE TEAM AT THE FLAMINGO POOL!!!!

We had another special visitor out to Shiloh yesterday, Mikey from AZ drove up for a visit. She wanted to see Keller again, the blind mare she helped save and trailered to Shiloh. Everyone had a great time- especially the blind girls- they were given a wonderful homemade carrot cake! Big thanks to Mercy as well who donated her hard earned $10.00 to the horses! Read Mikey's Shiloh adventures here!

Mikey, I do love the Keller book idea, I have actually been thinking about writing a Shiloh book as well. We have so many wonderful animals that have come through the rescue, I think it would make a very interesting book. I am planning to speak to Tony's book agent very soon with some ideas and see what they think...


Donkey Otie ate his feed on the grass today, as usual. Now he waits at the gate to the Cherry Pie each morning for his "special time"...

We moved Kelso, Sundance and Maverick into Mesquite Manor. All three need to have the extra feed to keep their weight up but they cannot handle any alfalfa. We will see how this grouping works out...

Gummie Pen member, Heavenly. Look down, see Jimmy Dean with his body in the feed tub? Sigh...

I had a lap full of dogs. It's hard to just sit down and relax around the rescue!

Aww, I was so glad to be there! There are so many critters there, it's hard to remember all their names. But Donkey Otie will forever stand out. He's a great old guy and I'm so happy for him and Keller and all the rest that they get to live out their days at Shiloh. You all do phenomenal work there. God Bless
