We welcomed back adopted horse, Nike, from her adoptive home. Nike was adopted one year ago and it seems her behavioral problem (which was minor at the time of her rescue) has escalated. We will be re-evaluating her to find out more. Although she is in good shape weight wise, we are not happy with the care that her hooves have been given. She arrived back at Shiloh with one shoe on an overgrown hoof, her other front hoof is all chipped up and much shorter. She also has a huge scar going across her bulb of her heel, radiating down into her hoof wall. It will take us some time, and money, to get her hooves back into shape. Nevertheless, we are happy to have her back at the rescue, she is a beautiful mare who deserves a loving home.
We also welcomed three new arrivals to Shiloh. Our local NV Brand Inspector, who has been a great friend to us, was having a hard time caring for his three horses due to his health problems. The three horses were well loved and cared for and it was very difficult for their owners to let them go. We are happy we could help them and the horses. The couple lives only miles from Shiloh so they will be able to come to visit the horses often, which is great for everyone involved.
