A Busy Friday!

Lots of volunteers out today due to the Holiday weekend. Everyone was working hard to burn off their Thanksgiving meals!

Big thanks to Ed who volunteered his building expertise and closed off the end of our office building. We have been living with a huge gaping hole which blew in tons of dust everyday. Now it looks great! Ed's wife, Sara, and their daughter, Lauren, groomed and loved on the horses...

We welcomed back Pequito who returned from his adoptive home in Oregon. Unfortunately, due to his old racing injuries, he just wasn't able to hold up to daily riding. He looks wonderful and he was well loved and cared for in his home and he is already badly missed by Chris and Laurie and former Shiloh Horse, Baldwin.

He stretched his legs in the turn out...

And then had a nice dust roll.

Sally gave Daisy her medicine, which she hates. Daisy's deformed teeth are affecting her again and she will be going into the vet clinic next week to have them worked on. This is not easy to do, her mouth is so small and her teeth are so large for her head. But, her teeth affect her sinus (she is missing one) causing her to have a persistent sinusitis. We have to keep Daisy healthy, so the vets will see what they can do with the very least amount of stress to her.

Lots of horses were worked with today, lots of volunteers working hard. Here is Lucero under City Center with Dave...

He worked on picking up feet and standing for grooming.
Then it was Will's turn for some work.

Spice was handled and worked by Patti...
Baby Spice has really filled out!

Then Patti worked with Crusoe in the Round Pen.


We really appreciate the volunteers who work with the horses. It helps them be able to move on to homes of their own, which is our ultimate goal, especially with the young horses who do not need to live their lives in a rescue. Shiloh really has some AWESOME VOLUNTEERS!

Sitka dozed in her barn stall with Bacon Bits...

Daisy greeted Pequito.

She caught him up on all of the gossip since he has been gone...

A meeting of the minds...

Tomorrow will be another busy day with lots of volunteers and visitors, as well as potential adopters trying out horses.

Thank you volunteers. Shiloh would not be the same without all of you. You love the horses as much as we do! What "meeting of minds"? We all lost ours long ago. "Only at Shiloh"
