Veteran's Day and The Ranch

First off, Happy Veteran's Day to all of our troops and to all who have served our country. We thank you and your families for your sacrifices...

Tony was a WWII Veteran. Here is his gravesite with flowers...

Thank you Tony for serving your country. At age 17, Tony forged his mom's signature so that he could join the Navy. He eventually joined the Submarine Service.

He was a very proud supporter of our troops...

These are stones left on his bench in his Memorial Garden. I am encouraging his fans from around the world to mail me a stone and I will place it on Tony's grave. Small stones can be mailed to me at: Jill Curtis, 2598 Forest City Drive, Henderson, NV 89052. In the Jewish faith, stones are placed on a grave to show that someone visited and that their love and respect is as enduring as a stone...

Back at Shiloh:

A shot of the Gummies eating breakfast. It's almost time for the old guys to wear their blankets at night. Some of our special needs horses are already wearing them...

Elisa and Broadway take a cross rail. I am currently working on new adoption videos...

Little Cairo, back in his Stall after some fun in the turn out...

Thank you to Ed, who braved our barn roof to repair a section. Thanks Ed!

Capone and Sandi, Daria and Tanis and Robin and Charmin headed off for a trail ride...

Lindsey Loham's new house, which we have nicknamed Rehab. She doesn't seem to want to go in it yet...
Elisa worked with Fax...

We bedded down the Pig Palace with straw to keep the pigs warm during the cold nights...

Sonny and Cher checked it all out and approved...

Daisy and Jimmy Dean's stall was also heavily bedded...

Skin Horse, Angel, was brought in for a clothing change. We gave her new slinkys and put a nylon sheet on top for warmth. Later, we will add a heavier blanket.

Another shot of the Gummies. That is Sausage Patti wandering around looking for Equine Senior...
Assisted Living horses sharing their feed with the huge flock of birds who are always flying around the ranch...
The Blind Girls and Boy- all sharing the same feed tub even though there are others with feed in them...
Sunny, waiting for her morning feed in the Barn...

The stone tribute is a lovely idea. My Dad was a WWII veteran, and he passed away on Veteran's Day. Thanks for the post.
