Selena is such a pretty girl.  She loves saying “Hello” to everyone as they come by.

One of the auction horses has a very distinct color.  We weren’t exactly sure on the color, so we asked our Facebook fans.  We got over 500 replies, all of them offering a variety of possibilities, including “He’s just a horse of a different color.”  After lots of research, we believe his color is called Classic Champagne.  Whatever the case, he is a gorgeous boy.

    We had a tractor come to the shelter.  A guy driving by the shelter saw the large pile of composting manure and offered to do some tractor work in exchange for some of the manure.

We needed to pull a couple posts and move one of the barns about 15 feet.

It was amazing to see how easy the tractor made just a large job so easy.

Once the barn was moved he got busy spreading the woodchips that were dropped off by the county.

As a reward for all his hard work, he started hauling out loads of manure.  He took load after load but it hardly made a dent.

We had some horses surrendered recently who haven’t made it in the blog.  This is Mojo a 10 year old Thoroughbred gelding.  He is a “been there, done that” kind of horse.  He’s a little stubborn, so Kirsty will be working with him to get his memory refreshed.

Another horse that came to us was a horse we have had at the shelter before.  She is one of 26 horses we rescued from auction back in May of 2009.  You can read that blog by clicking here.

Today she is all grown up.  Her registered name is Drummin Dbl. Hattitude, aka Hatti.  She is not trained to ride yet, Kirsty will be putting her into training.  She is 5-6 years old.  She is available for adoption.

Bev is a  7 year old Quarter Horse mare who is trained to ride.  She too needs a refresher course, but she is an absolutely stunning horse.

On Tuesday the staff was busy getting the auction horses vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped.  After Rusty was dewormed he started making funny faces and everyone got out their cameras to try and photograph it.

He really didn’t like the wormer, and he is quite the silly boy.  He really made a lot of funny faces.

Tawnee put a grain ball in the chute to give the horses something to play with and distract them.  They really enjoy licking and chewing on it while they are in there.

After closing time Jason and Russ hooked up the trailer.

Cash and Asia were being adopted and transported to their new home!  Cash is the horse who was surrendered from the LA area.

Before long Asia was hopping out of the trailer at their new home, and Cash came out right behind her.

They have a beautiful home to call their own, complete with a couple ponds and a couple llamas.  We know they will be very happy.

Angel was let into the area where the tractor work had been done.  It was all different as she is blind, and everything was moved around in different places.  She started walking around on the wood chips, gingerly picking her way, making sure it was safe.

It was so cute watching her walk around, listening to the wood chips crackle and snap under her hooves.

Angel has her very own Facebook page where she can share her life with you.  Please visit it and become her fan, click here.
