10/27/08 Great news as Philly has an adoption pending with Shiloh's neighbor, Sandy Valley Ranch. He will join Shiloh Horses, Laguna and Rabbit (who are both doing great), in his new home.
Philly at the walk on 10/7/08. Only his second time under saddle.
10/7/08 We have started Philly's adoption evaluation- this is one very steady and willing young gelding. He is super friendly, has no vices, loves to be ridden, and gets along with other horses. He ties, trailers, and stands for the farrier and vet.
Philly does have a bone chip in his knee from his days on the track- BUT he is going sound. We do have x-rays on file at Desert Pines. He will make an awesome pleasure, trail, or lower level Dressage horse. He has three nice gaits with a big stride.
He is walking, trotting, and cantering under saddle. He is quiet and level headed.

Philly at the canter- second time at canter under saddle. What a good boy he is!
Rescued from slaughter at New Holland, PA. Arrived at Shiloh 12/15/07.
This is a very nice looking gelding. He needs some rehab time as he has an injured area above his knee. He was dumped at the auction right off the Philly Park racetrack. 9/11/08 Philly getting some attention and love.
More info, pedigree, and race record to come!
