A Very Cold Tuesday!

It was so cold today and supposed to be even colder over the next few days...

The Pig Palace is all shored up with extra straw. The pigs have deep straw and old blankets in their houses...

We welcome formerly adopted horse, Baldwin, back to Shiloh. He returned due to personal reasons in his home- but he is very adoptable and will make someone a very nice gelding. He is an approx 12 year old Thoroughbred gelding.

Elisa began to work with him today. He is a good boy!

Ed went for a cold morning ride on his adopted horse, New York. That is Elisa's little Doxie, Clem, behind him...

Cairo soaked up some sun while dozing on his mom's breakfast...

Sausage Patti shared the Blind Girls' Equine Senior...

Elisa rode and worked with Oreo. This nice Mustang mare will be looking for her new home soon. She is moving sound and is well broke....

Elisa and Leo worked with Lobo. This is his first ride at Shiloh. He is approx 3 years old and was rescued off of the Fallon feedlot as an ungelded colt. He had a deformed hoof, but with regular good trims and some time off in our pasture, he is now moving totally sound. He is beginning his adoption evaluation. He did great for his first ride! As he is still so young, he will need an experienced home where he will be given time to mature before really beginning his under saddle work.

Ed shared a quiet moment with Aztec...

Then Aztec wandered off with Inca...

We moved Olympia into the Easy Street pasture to help her keep her weight up over the winter...

I love the sensitivity you have to all the needs of all your animals.

I think it's cool that you give us the names of all the animals in your pictures, like little Clem.

I've been wondering, how do you determine whether to put a horse under English or Western saddle?

Oreo, is really a nice horse. I hangout with her a little today. Gentry is sweet too. Both really great horses.
