Hey Y’all,

Well the last of the horses from the Challis herd are gone. They were shipped off yesterday for Utah. They are going to be part of Utah’s prison program. It is a great program and I wish the prisoners luck (especially¬† on one big gelding.)

Speaking of the Challis horses, Boise did real well on our adoptions. We started off with 68 horses and we adopted 35. Thank you for those of you who got one (or two or three.) We had a lot of people show up at the corrals for the National Adoption Day last weekend, but no horses went home.

So the corrals are empty. But only for a short time. Most of you may know that we are planning to gather the Four Mile and Sands Basin Herds. It’s all starting next week! There should be a lot of horses and a lot of color in these herd. I’m excited!

We are planning to have two adoptions for these horses. The first one will be December 4, 5, & 6. Just like always, the 4th will be a viewing day, the 5th we will start the adoptions, and Sunday the 6th we will be open for¬† adoptions on a first come first served basis. This will give you time to get them gentled by Christmas. (I don’t suggest you put them under the tree though.) No date is set for the second one yet; we’re hoping for early spring. (but hey, if y’all adopt the horses in December then there won’t be a need to have a second adoption, right?)

Anyway , that’s the latest news. Please feel free to forward this message on. If you know of anybody who wants to be added to my e-mails, have them give me a holler.

Until later,
