Action Needed! Congressional spending bill threatens wild horse protections

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

The deadline for Congress to finalize a government spending bill is December 7 – and some lawmakers are now trying to sneak changes into the bill that would remove protections for wild horses and burros from slaughter.

We have faced this threat numerous times in the past two years. At every critical moment, we have succeeded, but ONLY because this movement has mobilized. Don’t stop now.

Tell your Representatives to protect wild horses and burros from slaughter and cruel and untested sterilization methods:

Our opponents on both the Agriculture and Interior committees could make dangerous changes that could lead to horse slaughter for human consumption or cruel, untested sterilization experiments on mares.

The Hill calls these disputes “small-ball skirmishes” but we know they could be life or death for thousands of majestic creatures.

We need your help NOW to maintain protections for wild horses. Please contact your Representatives now!

Thanks,

AWHC Team

Thank you for making Giving Tuesday a success for wild horses. With your help, we hit our goal and unlocked our full $50,000 match!

The threats to wild horses have never been greater. But, with your help, 2018 has been one of our most successful years ever. Together, we succeeded in keeping slaughter prohibitions in the budget, protected wild mares from cruel sterilization procedures, and drew national attention to the cruel roundups across the West.

Thanks to your continued support, we’ll be able to keep up the fight wild horses and burros in the courtroom, in the halls of Congress, and in the field. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing all of the successes from the past year, and the fights still ahead.

Thank you for being with us as we continue to stand up for wild horses and burros.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Our match expires at midnight. That means you only have a few hours left to DOUBLE your impact for wild horses and burros. Please, donate before midnight to fuel all of our work.

– AWHC Team

This year has been one of our most successful in history. We’ve beaten back attempts to strip slaughter protections from the budget, won injunctions against cruel sterilization experiments, and worked with legislators to strengthen protections for horses and public lands. We’ve sued the federal government to demand that they uphold the law, the intent of Congress and the will of the American people to protect our wild horses and burros on our public lands.

We’ve accomplished so much this year — and we must continue to build on our success. Today is Giving Tuesday, and a generous donors has stepped up to MATCH every gift we receive up to $50,000 from now until midnight. Can you chip in now and have your impact DOUBLED?

We have ambitious plans for next year — keeping up our fights for wild horses and burros in the courtroom, in the halls of Congress, and in the field. We must prevent the sale of horses for slaughter, protect them from cruel, inhumane roundups, and ensure that their home on our public lands is secure.

We can’t do it with you. Please donate today and take advantage of our matching gift.

Thanks,

November 26, 2018

Ears the news…

The snow is gently falling and I am looking up from my computer to see mules eating their hay out in the pasture. It’s so peaceful and makes my heart feel very full. I am fortunate to be able to do what I do. I would not however, be able to do it without the help of our team of thoughtful and generous donors. Yeah, it’s that time of year once again, when I need to reach out to ask for help to meet our year end fund raising goal.

We had many sick animals over the course of the year, requiring numerous vet visits and a lot of prescription and non-prescription medications. We have had our two big draft mules Nellie and Luke here for a year now and they sure do put away the groceries! We are all happy to see them in excellent body condition and good behavioral health. We know the perfect home will come along for them and we are more than happy to have them here until it does.

Due to these facts we need YOU to help us now, please. Our fund raising goal for this year is $35,000. This amount will ensure a barn full of hay and plenty of grain and supplements. It will allow for routine veterinary calls as well as an emergency should one occur, and to just keep up with the day to day expenses of running a rescue; vehicle maintenance, repairs to buildings and machinery, little things, like ensuring we have a professionally cleaned porta potty for visitors! There is so much involved and like all things the prices of what is needed keeps going up.

You will be hearing from me frequently in the upcoming weeks as I ask you to please check under those couch cushions, raid the piggy bank, and do what you can to help us meet our goal. Thank you!

ChEARS,

Ann

President & Shelter Manager

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S. — The donkeys need YOU!  The mules need YOU!  Please take part in helping us reach our goal!!  You can make your gift donation right now by using the donate button in the left column!!!

Today we put Thanks and Giving together for this global movement! This global day of giving is designed to give back to our communities and help those around us! Be the change you want to see in the world and help make a difference for the horses at AAE! We hope you can join us . This year our goal is $5000. This will help support the veterinary costs we incur for our horses throughout the year.  

With your support, horses like Rudy get a second chance .

Next to feed and supplement costs, 

AAE’s biggest annual expense is veterinary care.  
Your support helps provide needed veterinary care to assure the horses we take in are on a path to good health, and each horse’s health is understood.

Johnny’s are welcomed to the world.
 
Your support assures the horses at AAE are properly evaluated, receive appropriate care and treatment of health issues, and are properly addressed and/or maintained throughout the year.  This assures all suspect health issues are characterized appropriately and considered prior to adoption.
Your support meant a new life for Sandi  
Proper maintenance means providing annual vaccines, annual dental exams and floating/treatment, as needed (some more than once a year), hoof care about every eight weeks, and rotational deworming, usually every two to three months.  Additionally, all horses taken in at AAE are now microchipped, and DNA testing completed. 
 
You can help assure horses like Rascal have a chance a life
So far this year, your support has ensured:
  • 34 horses in need have been helped
  • 17 have found forever homes
  • 8 foals became weanlings looking for forever homes
  • as many as 54 horses have been fed and cared for during the year
  • hoof care, $50 per trim
  • over 50 horses have been vaccinated – nearly $100 a set
  • nearly 60 dentals have been completed with additional exams – dental costs ranging from $100-$272
  • 15 geldings had sheath cleanings during while sedated (after dentals) – add $58
  • five colts were castrated – four normal procedures $190 each (plus antibiotics) and one a crypt orchid, $915 
  • various lab work costs through the year exceeded $4500 
  • emergency care, surgery, radiographs exceeded $2o,000 (e.g. colics, hospitalization, wound care, growth removals, biopsies, laminitis evaluations, medication, etc.)
AAE’s costs for veterinary care through October 2018 have been close to $45,000, not including medications, first aid supplies 
and similar items stocked at the barn.
Only with your support can we continue helping horses in need.  Your support will assure AAE has the funding to provide needed veterinary care to horses in need.
 
Give horses like Beau another chance

Horses need you!

15 + ORPHANS WAITING TO BE PICKED UP! THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW! Plus, an Update to BELL’AS LEGACY

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another 911 call. Literally just got off the phone a minute ago. We have 15 MORE Yakama foals who need help RIGHT NOW.

I so wish it would snow about 20 feet so all the catchers would stop catching horses.But wishes won’t save lives, so once again we are asking YOU to help us save these innocent babies. Their families have already shipped to slaughter, so time is of the essence.

Let’s make it a Merry Christmas for these babies! They have already lost their families, and they deserve every happiness there is. If you have that special someone who has everything, why not donate to save one of these foals and do it in their name? Give them the best Christmas ever, give them the gift of saving a life!

As always, we will need to get to WA, purchase and pick up the foals, get them vetted, their health certs and then transport them to where they are going. With so much heartbreak out there, we know that folks have been donating like crazy to the fire victims. But we still have to ask for the babies. Will you save them? We simply cannot do it without funding. These babies need your help!

As far as I know there are 15 for sure?, and maybe 16. We will save as many as we can, but we have to base that on the funds we can raise for this effort. We simply cannot save babies that we cannot care for and find homes for.

So PLEASE, help these foals today! ALL OF THEIR LIVES MATTER!

An update on BELLA’S LEGACY – GOT HAY. Thanks to your beautiful hearts, we were able to raise ($3219.62 via paypal, $30 check, $430 via gofundme) for a total of $3669.62 for purchasing hay and getting it to CA. We will be delivering half of the hay to the Camp Fire victims in the next week or so, (but will have to work around these new babies and the weather). We are still working on getting the most bang for your buck and getting the most hay possible to the critters that survived the fire. The horses that are still here with us at Chilly Pepper, also send their thanks and appreciation for their hay.

The photo’s shown are some of the lives y’all have already saved. The new babies are a bit bigger, and often not as quickly adopted out. But they are anxiously awaiting their new homes. LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

THANK YOU as always for making sure these babies have a chance. God bless!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We wouldn’t be able to protect the wild horses and burros of America without supporters like you. That’s why this Thanksgiving, we wanted to share a very special thank you for making it all possible.

We’re so grateful for you and for the magnificent animals we are working so hard to protect.

We’ve got many challenges ahead – but with your help, we’ll continue to meet them to ensure that our wild horses and burros are running free on our public lands for our children and grandchildren to enjoy.

From all of us at the American Wild Horse Campaign, warmest wishes to you and your family for a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

Another angel among us….

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Another AAE angel earned his wings last night.  Well, if horses could be angels and saints, Marshy-man was as an absolute angel, and an absolute saint.  There was a glow about this little guy, and if you ever met him, pretty sure you would know what I mean.

If you haven’t heard his story, Marshy came to AAE from another rescue back in March of 2014, but it seems he’s been here forever.  He was quite ill.  They didn’t have the ability help him and asked for help.  After considerable evaluation, diagnostics, and re-evaluating, the conclusion was that he likely had some form of intestinal cancer or irritable bowel disease.  He was started on steroids and showed steady improvement.

Marshy quickly became a favorite at AAE.  He introduced kids to horses in summer camps and pony pals programs.
He loved kids, and he loved adults just the same.
Marshy was the dress-up master.  He loved helping celebrate holidays, and he did it well.
Steroids can be wonder drugs, but unfortunately, they come with many risks.  Sadly, in 2016, Marshy experienced an acute onset of cataracts in both eyes. Suddenly, he couldn’t see.  However, thanks to all of Marshy’s friends, your kindness made such a difference for him.  He got the gift of site (cataract surgery in one eye).
You are the cutest, the most handsome, the funniest, the sweetest, the lovey-est, the one there aren’t enough words to describe!
You made princesses smile and
 fairy tales come true.
Marshy, wish we could all have
one more day to love you more.
Enjoy running ‘cross those green pastures….
…and jumping fences along the way,
forever pain free, lil man.

Every time I look in that mirror, I’ll think of you, lil’ man.  Loved you the mostest, mighty Moo!
Remembering you, always Marshy,
all of you’re friends at AAE and everywhere.

DOI Requests to Destroy Records – Act Now

The U.S. Department of the Interior is proposing to destroy thousands of public records including those related to the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Progam. AWHC and other wild horse protection groups believe that many of these records are valuable to research and our advocacy and litigation work. Their destruction could significantly hamper our efforts to protect wild horses and burros. Please take action today.

 

Incompetent and Dangerous Management of Corrals on Full Display at Adoption Event

Members of the AWHC team attended the Devil’s Garden wild horse sale and adoption event this weekend in Alturas, CA where 45 horses were placed. We have serious concerns about the safety and welfare of the horses in the pens in the Modoc National Forest under the management of the Modoc County Farm Bureau. While every person who took a horse appears to be a legitimate trainer or rescue, the remaining horses are far from safe, because in less than two months, the Forest Service plans to sell any horses for $1 a piece without limitation on slaughter. Read our firsthand account below.

 

Winter Roundups Begin Next Week 

Next week, the BLM helicopters will descend on the Silver King HMA in eastern Nevada, kicking off the winter roundup season. A total of 1,600 wild horses and burros have been targeted for removal over the next two months. Read on to find out what herds are being targeted.

What’s New with Roll? A Great Massage and a New Friend!

1

10-25-18

Roll had a good massage today! He seems to really enjoy the new Equisport massager. You can always tell when your equine enjoys his massage because he will “talk” to you along the way. Notice how Roll is pushing his hip into the massager in the first photo? That means, “Feels so good… go deeper!”

His left hind is often a bit sore from his twisting in the right hind, so he isn’t too sure about it at first, but the right hip is a different story and he relaxes. He even slid his hind leg slightly forward to allow Joanne to massage deeper.

It seemed that the left shoulder is a bit sore and he gives her a stern look of “Be careful now.”

Joanne spoke back to Roll with “I hear you! So we’ll go to the other side and move on to something else.” Roll responded with, “Oh, yes, this is a better spot!” as he relaxed his hind foot and leaned into the massager again.

Roll rounded his neck to look back to her and said, “Are you wearing a fanny pack full of oats today?”

Joanne responded with, “Nope, sorry! How about an eyeball massage?”

Roll leaned into the massager and went to town pushing his eye into the massager while Joanne just held it steady. He was in seventh heaven!

When it came to his ears, Roll went into a trance and enjoyed every minute of his full face massage!

Then she went across his back and over his rear end to finish. Roll looked at her as if to say, “Thanks for a GREAT massage…feels soooo good!”

After Rock’s death in 2011, Roll spent the last 7 years in turnout alone with only his two mini donkey friends, Spuds and Augie,  across the fence from him.

The best part of the weekend following his massage was that 26-year-old Roll finally got a friend in turnout! Billy Bad Ass (age 25) came to us a month ago. We thought the two gelding boys would enjoy each other as they are pretty close in age and it proved to be true!

Roll was truly happy to have a brand new buddy!

URGENT HELP NEEDED – “BELLA’S LEGACY – GOT HAY?” – FUNDRAISER TO HONOR BELLA, FOR CAMP FIRE ANIMALS & CPMM

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

PLEASE join us, in our “BELLA’S LEGACY – Got Hay”? fund raiser for the displaced horses and critters from the Camp Fire in CA & CPMM. The fire is about an hour from our place in CA, and is hitting close to home. There is so much heartbreak and sadness it is truly unimaginable, and the number of lost lives goes up every day.

We were asked to offer assistance, but due to one of our babies having substantial injuries, and also having so many special needs kids right now, we are hoping to offer assistance by helping provide some much needed hay. We were told that as the animals come out of the mountains in the coming weeks we might be needed to help with critical care at that time. But right now, feed and hay is desperately needed, and that is something we hope to help with.

So any donations made in the next 5 days, starting today, 11-15-18 and ending 11-20-18, at midnight, will be used equally for the horses at Chilly Pepper and the horses and critters that are being cared for from the Camp Fire. We will post the total amount raised and we will use half of the funds to purchase and deliver the “gold” to California.

As of this morning, we are sitting on 41 horses at Chilly Pepper. Y’all have come through and made it possible to save so many lives this year. We simply cannot express our appreciation and gratitude for your love and support. We have been playing catch up on paperwork, tax stuff etc. and been swamped with all of our special needs kids and taking care of 41+ horses. Hopefully I will catch up and be able to get all your personal “thank you’s” out. We so appreciate all you do!

On an extremely sad note, we had to set Bella free from her pain. As always, it is devastating to get a horse “too late” to save it. She was only 4 and knew nothing but pain, starvation and abuse prior to y’all making it possible to rescue her. We had those horrible lil hoofers fixed, but she was in so much pain, clear through her body, that even with large doses of pain meds the fight became too much. The more weight she gained, the harder it was. I stayed with her as always, and through the tears streaming down my face, I could see her relax for the first time, as the pain gradually subsided.

So to honor our beautiful Bella, let’s help those horses who are hungry, in pain, scared and suffering from the Camp Fire. Please support “BELLA’S LEGACY – GOT HAY?”

THANK YOU FOR SAVING THE KIDS SHOWN BELOW! They are precious and every single one of their lives matter!

BREAKING: The spay experiments have been dropped

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We wanted to let you know that we have just received word that the Bureau of Land Management is dropping the controversial experiments to surgically remove the ovaries of wild mares in Oregon in response to our collaborative lawsuit with The Cloud Foundation, the Animal Welfare Institute and photographer Carol Walker! 

We now hope that the agency will reconsider all plans to conduct this inhumane research and focus instead on humane, scientifically recommended forms of population management, including PZP fertility control. 

We couldn’t have entered into this lawsuit without your support. Thank you for standing with us and our wild horses and burros.

Gratefully,

Update on the Devil’s Garden Wild Horses 

The Forest Service’s roundup of the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory is ending this week, with the permanent removal of over 900 horses from their federally-designated habitat on our public lands in the Modoc National Forest. To date, thirteen horses have died, including one foal. In addition, three mares have miscarried, likely due to the trauma of the roundup. Seven of the horses euthanized after showing symptoms of pigeon fever, a contagious but generally non-fatal bacterial infection. Despite the outbreak, the Forest Service plans to hold an adoption/sales event next weekend. And, the Forest Service still intends to sell older horses by the truckload for $1 a piece without limitation on slaughter after 60 days. See the latest update on the Devil’s Garden roundup and speak up for these iconic horses by clicking below.

 

Spay Experiments: What Our Preliminary Injunction Means

Late last week, we won a preliminary injunction to halt the BLM’s planned barbaric spay experiments in Oregon. The action was part of a lawsuit filed by AWHC, the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) and The Cloud Foundation aimed at blocking the BLM from performing risky and inhumane sterilization surgeries on wild Oregon mares recently captured from the Warm Springs Herd Management Area. The had BLM planned to begin the experiments this week. Learn more by clicking below.

 

What the Election Means for Wild Horses

Last night’s election results changed the playing field for many issues, including the fight to protect wild horses and burros. The power shift in the House of Representatives makes it extremely unlikely that the Interior Department’s agenda of mass roundups, sterilization and slaughter will become reality, but making proactive change in a divided Congress is going to take real work. Meanwhile, developments in states may open the door to driving change at the local level. Read about some key election results that have implications for wild horses and burros by clicking below.
