A Very Busy Friday...

We spent the day getting ready for tomorrow's clinic. It's really going to be a fun day, many former Shiloh Horses will be in the clinic with their adopters. Eric and Sharil worked hard on the Cherry Pie area- it looks great and lets hope the wind stays away!

Of course, we still had all the usual things to do today...

Pippi Longstocking spent quite a bit of time inside of her foaling stall today. She looks very close to foaling and we are watching her carefully. Vertigo doesn't look like she will be far behind...

Donkey Otie greets us each morning. Here he waits to get into the Breakfast Club...

And the Breakfast Club is on! That's Bacon Bits, Fiesta, Inca, Donkey Otie and Jimmy Dean...

Well, there was a small spitting contest between Aztec and Inca over the feed pan. Interestingly, they actually stayed pretty close to each other today. We are hoping that they will team up...

The Brat Pack, lined up for breakfast.

Our Farrier, Osbaldo, trimmed Rugrat by the Feed Room. Osbaldo works at Shiloh 4-5 days per week. After all, it's a full time job to keep all the horses up to date on their feet.

A nice shot of the Mare Motel eating their breakfast. From left to right: Jack, Banjo, Lobo, Hutch and Starsky.

The other side. Left to right: Ember, Toluca, Tioga and Image.

Over in the Annex Pen, Sanctuary Horses, Navajo and White Cloud, enjoy their senior feed. They like to share the same feed tub. Navajo is about 36 years old...
White Cloud is looking great...

In the VC pen, the Blind Girls shared a feed tub as well. They do everything together! Left to right: Idaho, GG, Keller.

All three trying to squeeze into one feed tub. There are other ones, but they like to be together...

Taco and Ethel the Mule enjoy a mutual scratch...

BB took a sun nap...

Ironically, Starsky and Hutch are becoming friends. I actually didn't even think about their names, I just put them together in the Mare Motel on accident!

So happy to see Keller! I love that they all try to squeeze in together. She looks fantastic, and I'm already planning my next trip there. Wish I could be there this weekend, it sounds like a good time!
