Today is my Dad’s 80th Birthday. Last year, he was able to travel and spend it here at Journey’s End Ranch Animal Sanctuary. His health is not great and I cannot travel, so we had to be content with a phone call this year.

Dad and me Aug. 2010


Dad's 79th birthday with the sanctuary dogs

Our friend, Dallas Gulley, took a collection of our Youtube videos and made a DVD and sent it to Dad so he could share in sanctuary goings-on. Today, he had to buy himself a DVD player. I ordered some blank DVD’s and got a tutorial from Apple Tech Support so I will be able to make more in the future.

Rusty seemed to be fully himself today, after the probable vaccine reaction 2 days ago. I had him out to soak his feet in Oxine. The thrush seems totally cleared up, but with the wet weather we had, I wanted to be sure to prevent infection from returning. I cleaned and sprayed all the other horses’ hooves, too. They are getting extra hay for these cold nights and  are happy with the new load of Bermuda hay we got through our neighbor.

We got this email from Pepsi!

“Congratulations! Your Pepsi Refresh Project ideaFence additional acreage and build more shelters to save local animals has been selected for review!”

WOO HOO! We turn down horses in need almost weekly. With another large paddock and shelter, we could at least foster a few horses in need and at risk. Receiving a Pepsi grant would be wonderful and would be a real blessing.

Carson has been sunbathing a lot, as he loves keeping warm. He also loves his coat, blanket and the radiant heater.




Our new Equine License info is not yet posted on the Az. Dept. of Agriculture’s website, but I just found this from last year and was very pleased! Thank you, Dr. Waldron.

I did all the AM chores, getting used to the new dog arrangements, and it is actually working well with the Shyla and Liza separated from the others. Everyone is calmer.

I shuffled dogs around and everyone got ample  play time in the big yard and I got my mile walk in, too.

I cleaned the pig and sheep pens and cleaned and sprayed a lot of hooves.

I sprayed Tara with vinegar and then gave her a 3rd bath, still trying to get all the fragrance off her coat. I will be calling the fragrance company tomorrow to see what it actually is, as I am certain it is not “natural”. My lungs still react to being near Tara and she is making me hand feed her because she is upset about having to stay outdoors.

Maggie wanted her bandages off, so I removed them. There is a lot of bruising and one small puncture still open, but not infected. My neighbor stopped by with carburetor spray and the truck started right up. Thank goodness! Maggie felt well enough to run along the fence as he was driving off.

I am trying to gets tons of paperwork/lab forms ready for the vet visit Tuesday. I have 9 Hemopet thyroid forms to fill out and the Az. Equine Rescue renewal papers. It is 5PM and I have not gotten to several hundred emails yet. Time to wash dog dishes feed the  horses and then give all the dogs their meds.

Liza and Shyla

I have had a Lyme headache since yesterday, courtesy of the waxing moon. I used to love the full moon, not anymore…LOL

Oh, and thinking of John Lennon on what would have been his 71st Birthday. Still miss him.
