911 CALL – ANOTHER DEADLINE – SHIPPER CALLED – 3 +? FOR US, CLOCK IS TICKING – THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another 911 call today. Shipper in WA has at least 3 for us. I need to let him know asap if we can take them. TWO of them are easily big enough to ship, but we were offered the chance to save them. However, as always, there is a looming deadline.

We are so grateful to y’all for helping us save the 71 babies in August and September, but these lives are just as important. We have been absolutely swamped caring for the nearly 90 horses we had at Chilly Pepper, but thankfully, our angels stepped up to help us find placement for many of the babies. We are now close to 30 horses, but that is still a very large number going into winter. We need to stock up on groceries and meds.

With temperatures sinking in to the low 20’s in the next week, we are fighting the cold weather, “water blues”. (Low 20’s means freezing water tanks, frozen hoses, broken water lines etc. So we need to buy new tank heaters and get ready for the cold immediately. It’s only September, ugh.)

We are working on more shelter so all these kids will be comfortable and warm. In the past, this much shelter was not needed, as our numbers were normally lower.

However, as we are sitting on close to 30 horses and the weather is already going to be brutal, we need to get the extra shelters set up. Especially as we are (hopefully) heading out to get more.

The (4 legged) kids are also eating us out of house and home. We need to order more hay, grain, milk pellets etc. and are now heading to WA, IF we can save these babies. This will mean more vetting etc. (It was over $500 for the last 5). As our coffers were nearly wiped out with the 71 needing so much special feed, milk pellets, vetting etc., we need to get back on track.

Please help us save these lives and prepare for the upcoming winter. We need your help and together, as always, we can “git ‘er done” and keep saving lives.

Thank you from all the horse kids and the rest of the critters. Your donation makes a difference. Every single penny adds up, and it is clear that when we all come together, we CAN make a difference. THANK YOU!!

Wild horses betrayed…but the fight goes on!

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

I have devastating news. The Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA, and Return to Freedom, who made promises to protect horses, just betrayed America’s mustangs and burros.

Today, at the behest of those organizations and the livestock industry lobbyists they allied with, the Senate Appropriations Committee funded a $35 million increase for the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program. The appropriation is part of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Interior Department spending bill unveiled today.

The funds are targeted for implementation of the unprecedented mass roundup, removal, and radical population suppression plan that the groups, along with the cattlemen, support.

We’re ready to fight back.

There are no restrictions on how the BLM can spend the new money. With this nearly 50% increase in the program budget, it’s clear what the BLM will do. Thousands more wild horses will be rounded up with helicopters, ripping them from their families and homes on our public lands. Those who remain free will be subjected to brutal sterilization surgeries that will destroy their wild behaviors and threaten their very lives. The future of America’s wild free-roaming herds will be in jeopardy when populations are reduced to genetically non-viable levels.

Don’t be fooled by the deceptive promotion of the plan as “non-lethal.” The bill language prohibits slaughter for a year, but the plan makes that horrific outcome more likely as holding pens swell with tens of thousands more horses and no guarantee of funding for their safety or long-term care.

But don’t despair. This is a setback, but not the end of the battle.

There’s a long process ahead before this becomes law – if it ever does. Congress may choose to fund the government in FY 20 by passing a Continuing Resolution instead of a spending bill. And the BLM will have many hurdles to cross before accelerating the roundups and implementing inhumane management tools.

That means this fight goes on.

With your continued support, we will fight those who betray our wild horses and burros. We’ll fight them in court. We’ll fight them in Congress. We’ll expose the backroom deal that sold out our mustangs. We won’t rest. With your continued support, we won’t stop until our mustangs are safe.

In Freedom,

Suzanne Roy, Executive Director

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Quick update: Yesterday, the Senate Interior Appropriations subcommitee unanimously approved the spending bill and sent it to the full committee for a vote on Thursday.

Unfortunately, the subcommitee still has not released the text of the actual bill.

We may not know until Thursday what’s in it, but we can’t rest until the votes have been cast. We need your help right now to contact key Senators in the remaining 24 hours before the hearing! Scroll down for a list of Senators and our suggested brief message.

Thursday’s decision will dictate our next steps, and we have to remain vigilant.

For real-time updates, make sure you’re following us on Facebook and Twitter.

Stay tuned for more,

P.S. We also need your support to keep our litigation and lobbying efforts going – can you help?

There’s a lot at stake for wild horses and burros this week on Capitol Hill. The Senate will unveil its Fiscal Year 2020 Interior Appropriations bill at a subcommittee hearing on Tuesday and a full committee hearing on Thursday.

“Hello. I’m calling to ask the Senator to oppose funding in FY20 Appropriations for the cattlemen’s plan for America’s wild horses and burros. I don’t want my tax dollars spent on mass roundups that will lead to eventual slaughter or on cruel sterilization surgeries. Please don’t throw more money at a failed program that has shown no ability to reform. Thank you.”

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

There’s a lot at stake for wild horses in Washington this week as the Senate unveils its FY2020 Interior Appropriations bill at a subcommittee hearing tomorrow. The legislation could have huge ramifications for mustangs and burros.

The bill could include funding to implement the dangerous cattlemen’s plan for our wild horses, which includes accelerated roundups, cruel surgical sterilization, and tripling the number of horses in holding — making slaughter more likely in the long run. If the bill doesn’t prohibit the Forest Service from selling horses for slaughter, all wild horses under Forest Service jurisdiction, including California’s Devil’s Garden mustangs, will be at grave risk.

If the Senate funds this devastating proposal, we’ll need to escalate the fight over the next months and beyond.

Here’s what American Wild Horse Campaign is doing to defend wild horses.

We lobby. On the Hill, our experienced legislative team is fighting every day to convince legislators to secure real and humane solutions that protect these national icons.

We lead grassroots campaigns to make sure your voices are heard. In 2017, we beat back the existential threat of mass slaughter. With your support, we’ll prevail again.

We defend in the courtroom. Our lawsuits have defeated rancher attempts to force mass roundups and BLM plans to eradicate wild horses from designated habitat. We’re currently in court simultaneously fighting the Forest Service’s slaughter plans and the BLM’s plans to perform barbaric sterilization surgeries on wild mares.

We can keep this vital work going – but only with your help. The lives of tens of thousands of mustangs and burros depend on your support.

Thank you for your steadfast support for AWHC and our beloved mustangs and burros

Idaho Mustangs at Risk and More News

News & Alerts

 

BLM Plan Could Destroy Idaho Wild Horse Herd – Take Action!

The BLM is accepting public comments on a Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) that will affect a small herd of wild horses living in the Four Mile Herd Management Area in southwestern Idaho, near the Oregon border for the next 10-20 years. Among the management options under consideration for wild horses in the Four Mile mustangs are surgical removal of ovaries in mares and castration of stallions, vasectomy, PZP, GonaCon, skewed sex ratios, and the creation of non-reproducing herds. Now is the time to weigh in for humane and proven management options like PZP fertility control, and rejection of dangerous methods, like surgical sterilization and sex-ratio skewing, that will destroy the horses’ wild free roaming behaviors and social organization. Please take one moment to take action below.

 

BLM Roundup Reports: Utah, Nevada and California

The BLM is well into its summer/fall roundup season, aiming to remove 3,565 federally-protected wild horses from public lands through the fall. This month has seen three roundups conducted simultaneously in three different states — including one targeting the nation’s most high profile wild horse herd. AWHC has been onsite at all three roundups and you can read our reports from the field by clicking below.

 

Wild Horse Week in Washington a Success!

Thanks to all the members of our herd who galloped to action last week to let the Senate know that the so-called Path Forward for wild horses — being pushed by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, ASPCA, HSUS and Return to Freedom — will be a giant step back for these cherished national icons. Together we made our position known, loud and clear. Read more about the successful mini campaign below!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

#WildHorseWeek continues, and so do your opportunities to get your Senator’s attention.

As you know, a dangerous proposal is being circulated for mustangs and burros, and we must ensure that the Senate stands strong on our side and does not include funding language in the Interior Appropriations Bill.

Today, we urge you to speak up on social media.

What you can do:

1.  Send these automated tweets to our Senate targets using the links below.

2. Download this graphic and post it somewhere (even in the comments!) on the following Senator’s Facebook pages.

We are hearing that offices know where we stand, we just have to keep it up. Let’s make sure they hear us loud and clear.

Thank you and post away!

– The AWHC Team

P.S. If you haven’t already, please make a call to your Senator at 202-224-3121 and tell them to OPPOSE funding for the Cattlemen’s Association/ASPCA wild horse plan and SUPPORT legislative language to prevent USFS from selling wild horses for slaughter.

Let’s get the phones ringing for #WildHorseWeek in Washington

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

It’s here: #WildHorseWeek in Washington. Today, we unify wild horse supporters around the country to make our voices heard!

Mustangs and burros on our public lands are at risk, and we must ensure that the Senate stands strong to protect them. At issue is Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 spending legislation, which must reject a dangerous plan for mass wild horse roundups and must include a prohibition to stop the Forest Service from selling wild horses for slaughter.

What we’re asking you to do today: Make the call to your Senators by calling 202-224-3121. Ask them to please reject this misguided proposal.

Suggested message:

Hi, My name is __________ and I live in [town]. I’m requesting that Senator [name] OPPOSE funding in the FY20 Interior Appropriations bill for a Cattlemen’s/ASPCA plan to round up and warehouse over 100,000 wild horses and burros over the next ten years. I’m also asking the Senator to SUPPORT language in the bill to prevent the Forest Service from selling wild horses for slaughter. Thank you for your time.

   

Together, we’ll make our voices heard. Please pick up your phone today!

Thank you!

– The AWHC Team

Tomorrow, Congress will hear from us

0

The following is from the American Horse Council:

Congress returns to work on Capitol Hill this week after the August recess. Among the issues it will tackle: a dangerous proposal that could result in the roundup of more than 100,000 wild horses and burros over the next decade — that’s more than even exist today!

We must make sure that the Senate rejects the funding request to begin implementation of this devastating proposal.

Misleadingly billed as a “path forward,” the propsal is actually a road to destruction for America’s remaining wild herds. It’s opposed by grassroots organizations and groups with boots-on-the-ground experience protecting and humanely managing wild horses and burros in the wild. It advances the interests of the cattle industry — which seeks to clear the public lands of mustangs in order to maximize subsidized livestock grazing — at the expense of the public and our wild horses and burros.

That’s why we need your voice, and we need it now.

Tomorrow, we are launching Wild Horse Week in Washington — three days of actions you can take to oppose this plan. We’ll include a message you can phone-in to your senators, a way for you to create a storm on social media, and other actions to support our collective defense for our wild horses and burros.

So please stay strong, stay ready and stay tuned!

– The AWHC Team

TATIANA, AND ALL THE KIDS THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Thank you for all the love and support. We are so very grateful to have you in our Chilly Pepper Family.

Your donations are what make this all happen. Yes, Matt and I work non-stop, but it would mean nothing without the love and support of people like you.

Together, we are making a very real difference and we are actually saving lives. So many people complain about the issues, but do nothing. Your wonderful donation has actually saved the lives of real horses.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The picture of Whiskey is a perfect example of one of the lives you saved. He is a very happy, nearly normal, little baby.

Thank you for making this happen, and thank you for your donation.

Hugs,

Palomino.

I am sorry that I am behind as usual on my “thank you’s” – (I am working on getting better and quicker, but y’all have made it possible to save so many lives that I am running non-stop just to feed and water everyone. I so appreciate your patience and understanding. :)

Tell Your Senators to Co-Sponsor the PAST Act!

The following is from the American Horse Council:

Tell Your Senators to Make History! Push PAST Act Over the Finish Line!

Before breaking for the August recess, the U.S. House of Representatives adopted the Sen. Joseph Tydings Memorial Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act of 2019 (H.R. 693) by a vote of 333 to 96.  In the wake of this historic vote, the horse industry is focusing efforts on the Senate, where there is an opportunity to gain a “super-majority” of cosponsors for the senate version of the bill (S. 1007), championed by Sens. Mike Crapo (R-ID) and Mark Warner (D-VA).  During August, AHC members sent 200 letters to the Senate urging support for this important bill.  You can put even more horsepower in the PAST Act by sending a letter to your senators today!

MEET TATIANA – CAN WE HELP HER? SHE IS IN EXTREMELY CRITICAL CONDITION! SHE NEEDS HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Thank you for helping us save all 71 babies. In the middle of all that, we rescued another Virginia Range yearling with a nail in her foot. Sadly, the only option was to end her excruciating pain.

ANOTHER EMERGENCY CALL YESTERDAY. We picked up this beautiful little girl last night. She is about as critical as they come. We also found out she has extreme issues with peripheral vision and appears to be completely blind behind her. She was terrified, shaking and lashing out, kicking viciously out of utter panic and terror, if anything accidentally touched her hind end or she herself touched something.

She is beyond sweet and NEEDS YOUR HELP! She stayed right outside the nursery door, surrounded by babies, babies, babies on either side. She ate and as I was awake all night, I heard her urinate twice. That is why you “sleep (or stay awake lol)” with your critical cases and your babies. I would have no way of knowing if she was passing any fluids if I couldn’t hear her.

She will need veterinary care, blood tests, medicine, special feed etc. and we still have close to 70 horses here. 19 went to their new homes yesterday. PTL!

So if you can help us give her a chance it would be much appreciated. Tatiana was named after Titan,our beautiful boy we rescued last year. He came in to us in about the same shape, but the damage the starvation did to him was too severe. He had a year of love and happiness, but yesterday he was done.

Please help us save her and honor his memory. She truly needs a miracle, and if we can save her, she most likely will end up a permanent rescue in our blind pen with the other kids.

Please help today!
