A Beautiful and Peaceful Day...

Sally and I just returned from Colorado where we spent some time with our friend, Susan, who is not well. Those of you who follow the blog might remember last February when Susan was in town visiting and she talked about the horses of Mongolia. Susan is battling cancer and is now at home with her family. We were able to spend time with her just talking, laughing about the Pony Club days, and sitting quietly together. She is very peaceful and strong. We are sending her and her family our love and support. We love you Susan and we are thinking about you...

It was a very quiet and peaceful day at Shiloh today as well. The sun was shining but there is a chill in the air.
Ciento wanders to get a drink of water in the Okay Corral pasture...

Serenity, who was wandering, rolled in the sand...

And then needed a boost to get up all the way.

We moved Stardust into the barn this morning. It looks like she possibly suffered a small stroke sometime last night. She is not in pain, but is walking unbalanced and has a head tilt. She is warm and cozy in the heavily bedded stall and is eating and drinking normally. She is about 30 years old and we will keep her comfortable...

Ketchum was moved out of his medical stall and into a pasture. We have been using a chemo cream on his cancer and now we need to leave it alone for two weeks. He will spend the next two weeks in a pasture with friends where we can still watch him but where he can enjoy a good horse life.

Stetson is looking good, that is Ice lying down in the sun in the background.

Daisy wonders if she should go out wandering or if she should stay in her comfortable stall...

Laramie, looking fuzzy and fat. He blinked when I took this photo but he still looks cute!

Frisco was moved into the new extra feeding pasture.

We had a grey arab who had melanoma and had great success treating him with high doses of Tagamet (Cimetidine). I bought the generic first through AARP and then in Mexico. He had very large masses on his neck and more seriously several on his anus. The tagamet treatment made them much smaller in a matter of a couple of months. Our vet was stunned by his progress. He had to be on it for the rest of his life but he had continued success with the treatment. If you do a google search for tagement, melanoma and horse you'll see some information on it.
