In February 2010 The Canadian Horse Defence Coalition received this hidden camera footage that had been taken in the Canadian slaughter houses, Quebec's Viandes Richelieu and Alberta's Bouvry Exports.
I don't care who you are, even if you claim to be pro-slaughter- nobody, and I mean nobody, with an ounce of compassion inside of them, can watch these videos and not be disturbed.
Most of the Fallon feedlot and auction horses that we have saved would have ended up here. Imagine some of the Shiloh Horses that you have grown to love, support and appreciate.
Now imagine them in these videos.
This should NOT be happening. Period.
Great news as Echo Echo spent the morning in his outdoor run. His feet are feeling better and we are hoping that eventually he will feel up to wandering freely during the day...
Little Aztec has joined the Breakfast Club. Here he joins up with Inca, Bacon Bits and Jimmy Dean...

Unfortunately, neither Sally or I can keep them and they are too small to be ranch dogs.
Is there anyone out there who can give these poor little girls a new home and future? It would be wonderful if they could stay together, but of course, that is not very realistic. There is a possibility that Shiloh Volunteer, Sandi, can keep the little grey one, but if there is someone who will take on both that would be wonderful.
If anyone is interested, please email Sally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sally coaxed the white girl over to her...
In the office- they are definitely house dogs, they hopped right up onto the sofa.
Here are some photos that Dave took yesterday at Shiloh:
What a face! It's Aztec, one of our new arrivals...
A great perspective shot from up high. There are all our favorite Gummies with Easy Street behind them. That white horse trailer to the right of the Gummies is the goat house- it's bedded with Straw. We have even found Wanderer Trigger just hanging out inside! The Pig Palace, which I think we will now call "Hamelot" (Thanks Eric and Jeremy), is behind the goat trailer.

We also got a chance to meet some of the other Painted Pony artists whose Ponies were also released for sale. Their artwork is just beautiful and we were so happy to be in the other artists' company. It really is an honor for all of us to be associated with, and to work with, such talented people.
We will be offering Shiloh Figurines on both Shiloh's website and Tony's website within the next week. All Shiloh's purchased off of these website, or at the rescue, will be hand signed by Tony. These figurines will sell for $75.00.
Note: We will be selling Shiloh Figurines at this year's Pet-a-palooza on April 10th. We will be offering unsigned Shilohs at a special reduced price of only $35.00 at this event. Tony will be at Pet-a-palooza from noon until 2pm to sign the figurines- so if you are in the area, come on by Shiloh's booth!
A HUGE Thank you to both The Trail of the Painted Ponies and Enesco, the Manufacturer. Painted Ponies presented Shiloh a donation check for $2,000.00 and Enesco presented us with a donation check for $1,000.00. THANK YOU!
Also thank you to The Trail of the Painted Ponies who will now be offering our hand beaded horse shoes on their website! They have been so generous to the rescue horses and we are just so happy to be working with this wonderful company.
The Painted Pony Display at Dillards. That is Shiloh in the top glass case!
Both Aztec and Hammie Davis came from the NSPCA. We are so happy to be able to give them a home where they will have all of the room they need to live good pig and Alpaca lives...
Aztec met our Llama, Inca, in the round pen...
Inca wasn't too sure about her new friend...
But, how could she resist this face?
Still, Inca didn't look too impressed...
So, she wandered over to meet Hammie Davis...
He is a cutie too!
Unperturbed, Aztec rolled in the deep warm sand...
Later, they were both moved to a Medical Unit for a few days as they settle in to their new home. In a few days, they will both be let out to wander freely on our 40 acres...
Wanderers Latigo and Cortez looked less then enthusiastic about the new arrivals...

Shiloh in my house, I love having him here!
Back to Ranch photos:
We are beginning to work with Napa. She is fat and sound, ready to begin her adoption evaluation...
It took us a while to catch Wanderer Baja. Scrappy and Lindsey Loham tried to run interference, but we eventually caught her...
Over in the Mega Pasture, Will ate his breakfast. This is such a sweet young gelding!
There goes Tioga now!
Over in the arenas, Elisa worked with Broadway. We had given Broadway some time off in the pasture over the winter, but she is back to work and will be looking for her new home very soon.
