A Peaceful and Quiet Weds...

A very beautiful day at the ranch, clear blue sky and warm weather...

Dynamite enjoyed some time in the turn out. He seems to be quieting down a little bit since his recent gelding. But, he still thinks he is a tough guy...

Fame, Spice (adopted) and Sunday (adopted) in the Brat Pack...



Trucker came home from the vet clinic yesterday afternoon with his newly placed Magic Shoe. He was a bit sore after all the work that was done but should be feeling better in a few days...



His newly placed shoe. It's working!



A view down the Medical Area. That is Ethel the mule who normally wanders freely but was brought in for some treatment for a few days...



Jedermann and I took a break from arena work and headed out on trail...



We have miles and miles of open space and great trails all over Sandy Valley...



Beautiful blue Nevada sky. A perfect day for a trail ride...



One of the signs on the road near Shiloh...



Mini Wanderers, Baja and Mojo eat their breakfast hay...



Our mini Mule, Huckleberry is finally shedding out. He has tons of hair!



Wanderers Latigo, Charm, Cortez and Charlie...



Sy was up and out wandering this morning. He usually wanders and naps in the sun for a few hours then heads back to his Barn stall and stands there waiting to be let in so he can finish his morning grain. Not a bad life at all...



Moztec on City Center...



Mojo chewed on Sally as she sat and filled a water bucket...

Trucker's progress is truly amazing. He should be Shiloh's poster child! Just to show what neglect can do, and what lengths you will go to in order to right it. One of a hundred inspiring stories at Shiloh.

Agree with the posters: Trucker is amazing, and so are your vets. Good work (and I'm glad a photo journal is being kept on the boy. He may set a precedent for other foals born with similar issues). I love all the pictures, too, and aren't we lucky to have such wonderful trails to ride down?
