Happy Thanksgiving from the Horses and all of the Volunteers at AAE! 

We hope you are enjoying Thanksgiving with your family and friends.
This is the time of year we reflect on all we are grateful for and
give thanks to those around us.
Our horses are so incredibly thankful for plenty of food and good health, and
our volunteers are grateful for full hearts.
We have YOU to thank!
THANK YOU for all of the GREAT THINGS you do to make it possible to help so many horses!
Without the support and generosity of our volunteers, donors, and supporters like you, we would not be able to continue our mission to Rescue, Rehabilitate, and Rehome horses in need.
So far this year your support has helped us rescue and rehabilitate 30 horses, and
27 horses have found families of their own.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank YOU for all YOU do for horses in need and AAE!
THANK YOU for all of the GREAT THINGS you do to make it possible to help so many horses!

We are Thankful!!

You’re helping us get the south and southeast portions of our new fencing done!
Thank you to Jean R. for heading up the team, and
special thanks to Micah Smith/Tailored Tree and Callie Mirsky/Cali Homes

The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue:

 

Emaciated Horse and Donkey Become Best Friends 

As some of you may know, on the 7th of November Trevor and I went on a rescue trip to pick up a donkey and horse. (Ann was working hard for the rescue at Equine Affaire, otherwise she would have be with us!) The donkey and horse have since been given the new names Hobie and Walton. Both of these animals are completely emaciated and have been starved. Long story short, the gentleman we picked them up from today went to a farm in VT to buy horses. When looking at the horses he was going to buy he noticed a donkey and a horse in a separate pen and noticing their awful condition inquired about them to the farm owner. The owner told him in few words that they were no longer being used on his “ranch” and he was going to dispose of them in the next couple of weeks. Bless this man, he bought them on the spot.. Hobie the donkey has been used the majority of his life for donkey basketball events, which is exactly what it sounds like. People dragging donkeys onto basket ball courts, jumping on their backs for “fun and entertainment.” This is in no way enjoyable for the donkeys, and in our opinion, and many others it is 100% abuse and taking advantage of the donkeys calm and stoic nature. But more of that at a different time. Hobie and Walton bonded as a result of both of them being completely starved, bullied and beaten up by other horses.

When we first arrived to pick them up, both Hobie and Walton were standing separate from the other horses in the herd. Hobie was the first to say hello when we called to him. He was facing away from us, his ears were limp and didn’t move or twitch when we called. Instead he turned his whole body around slowly and stiffly to greet us, nibbling at our pockets and hands through the gate. We melted into a puddle. While petting him I looked around the farm to find a chestnut horse standing in the middle of the paddock, not with Hobie and not with the horses. He was standing alone and looking forlorn.  Walton, noticing that we had started to talk about him, came over, ears pricked forward, glossy eyes, and dragging feet to say his greetings. Instant tears. Instant boiling rage. How someone can intentionally starve two sweet animals to this point is just unimaginable, and there is a special place you know where for people who do such things in our opinion.

Trevor with Hobie in hand, and I with Walton hopped right onto the trailer. As we told them we are going to take care of them from here on out, this is a new beginning. The gentleman who saved them and took care of them for a month said his goodbyes and gave some treats to both of them.

We headed for our two hour ride back to the rescue. Poor Trevor had to listen to my ranting through (mostly) choked back tears of how horrible people can be to living creatures. The whole drive back I was antsy thinking about all I was going to do to, treat his infected wounds, heal the rain rot covering his back, keep him warm tonight, get rid of the lice, configuring his meal plans in my head, what to pick up at the grain store in the morning etc.

Once we got home (or to the rescue I call home) we haltered and blanketed Hobie and Walton before they stepped out of the trailer and into the rain to keep them as dry as possible. Last night it was freezing, a low of 20 degrees and snow flurries. Not the most welcoming weather, but thank goodness we have so many mismatched old blankets! We found two that some-what fit and got them cozy. We unloaded them. Hobie the brave shaky little donkey stepped off the trailer first almost falling down. Onward to their new pen across the street, where we quarantine animals for 30 days. Even thought they have current health certificates and negative coggins, we like to take every precaution to protect the other animals on the farm.

Hobie and Walton are getting small frequent meals throughout the day; five meals to be exact of warm mashes with all the supplements to help them get healthy.

To address the elephant in the room, no this is not a donkey, mule or hinny. Yes we are a donkey and mule rescue. As with everything there is the exception to every rule, and Walton is an exception right now. We would have said yes to taking him into the rescue if this sad equine friend had long ears, medium ears, short ears or even no ears! We are sure that all of our supporters stand behind us on this decision. We could not have seen any animal in that condition, and left them behind.

We will keep everyone updated as we help these two brave friends recover. If you are able to donate to the care these two are going to need we sure would appreciate it. To donate please click the link below.

Thank you to all who have given and continue to support Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue and the work we do!

Sincerely,
Hannah & Ann

Grateful and Thankful

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We’re thinking about gratitude this week, and want you to know how deeply grateful we are that you are part of our “herd.”

We know that some of the news we share with you is heartbreaking and sometimes difficult to stomach. But it’s important to remember that, together, we’ve accomplished some incredible work this year despite the obstacles — And that’s thanks to you and your continued support.

At a time when the threats against wild horses and burros continue to grow, we’ve experienced an outpouring of support from all across the nation by dedicated and compassionate people who are taking a stand to defend these beautiful animals.

Never underestimate the impact you are making. It’s making all of the difference. So on behalf of our team and America’s wild horses and burros: Thank you.

Warmest wishes to you and your family for a very Happy Thanksgiving.

The AWHC Team

Galloping towards a major deadline

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We’re officially one week away from #GivingTuesday, which is one of the largest days for charitable giving in the United States for the entire year. Our ability to hit our annual fundraising goal at the end of the year depends on having a successful #GivingTuesday.

Here’s Why We Need Your Help: Over the past weeks, we’ve been sharing the news with you. The BLM outlined a $5 billion plan that could result in the removal and potential wholesale slaughter of America’s wild horse population in our lifetimes.

The Congress is currently considering giving the BLM more money to accelerate roundups and begin implementation of the plan. This is the biggest threat to mustangs and wild burros in generations and it could begin early next year — Which means we’re in a fight for their lives in 2020.

Our 2020 budget and the extent to which we can fight back (and expand our work in critical areas!) depends on reaching our end of year fundraising goal. And the only way we can achieve that is if we can bring on 5,000 individual donations on #GivingTuesday.

Let’s show the BLM, the livestock industry, and Congress that we WILL stop their attacks on wild horses and burros — Make a donation toward our #GivingTuesday fundraising drive.

This is an ambitious goal, we know. But the stakes have never been higher and with your help, we will rise to the occasion.

Together, we are unstoppable,

American Wild Horse Campaign

P.S. — If you can’t donate, we completely understand. But there’s a way you can help us out without giving a cent. Share this email with three friends to help us spread the word and recruit more friends of America’s wild horses and burros!

Photos from the field: One person really makes all the difference

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

“Zero wild horses.” That is the Appropriate Management Level the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) set for the Seaman and White River Herd Areas (HAs) in Nevada.

As a result, the BLM rounded up and removed 294 wild horses from these HAs this month with 9 dead. AWHC asked the BLM to delay any action until the court ruled in our Caliente Complex lawsuit about the legality of such a decision.

The BLM proceeded, until they halted the roundup because most of the horses were at higher elevations in the juniper forests where the helicopters couldn’t get them. The BLM says it will resume in January when the temperatures drop and the horses come down to lower ground. The BLM did allow public observation during this month’s roundup and most days, our observer was the only member of the public onsite to document and monitor the operation.

We are the eyes and ears on the ground. If it weren’t for that lone AWHC field representative, the public wouldn’t have insight, nor the BLM accountability, regarding this roundup — and many others.

If you can, make a donation to ensure we have representatives on the ground to document roundups and hold the BLM accountable.

Below Are Photos Our Observer Took During The Seaman and White River Roundup:

These photos are heartbreaking. Wild horses deserve to be free and live in the wild. That’s why it is critical we continue to observe, document and report on the atrocities the BLM is committing, while continuing to fight in the courts, in Congress and in the field to stop the roundups and implement humane management.

Your donation allows us to have field representatives on the ground and powers our legal defense fund so we can make roundups a thing of the past: Your support makes all the difference.

Getting down to your mini’s eye level so that he can make eye contact with you will foster good behavior and produce a willing relationship of trust between you. Learning how to begin the relationship with your miniature equine in a positive and natural way, and setting reasonable boundaries for behavior, discourages striking, jumping on you and other undesirable and abrupt behaviors that are common when working with miniature equines. The results of using this safe approach to miniature training have been amazing! My minis are always calm, happy to cooperate, play safely and continue to learn! Learn more about this gentle and effective way to manage and train YOUR mini on my website at www.luckythreeranch.com under TRAINING and in the STORE.

Help save the wild burros and mustang with TMR Rescue 501(c)3

The following is from TMR Rescue:

Help Save the Wild Burros and Mustangs

Wild horses and burros are quickly disappearing from our public lands. The round ups continue despite proof that the stated numbers on our public lands are far fewer than reported. Often, wild horses and burros adopted through the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) adoption program do not land in good hands. Especially, those who came out of the program from 15 years ago. This is because people don’t know how to train a wild equine so they end up forgetting about them. Or hurting them through the frustration caused by not knowing what to do. Here at TMR Rescue we are doing all we can to help these animals in need of a good home. TMR Rescue has over 60 wild burros with more on the way within the month. We also have 6 beautiful wild mustangs at the ranch that live along side one of our wild burro herds.

Congress is pressing the BLM for this long-overdue report on wild horses

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Four months. It’s been nearly four months since the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) passed the deadline to submit a report to Congress regarding the future of the Wild Horse and Burro Program.

Despite that, the Acting Director of the BLM has made time to serve the interests of his former clients and piece together a propaganda campaign in support of a $5 billion plan that will likely end with the slaughter of America’s wild horses.

This comes at a time when Congress is considering allocating more money to the Wild Horse and Burro Program without even seeing the BLM’s critical report!

We’re not the only ones fed up with this. Seven members of Congress are teaming up to demand the BLM issue this report ASAP since they missed the latest deadline.

Add your name to our petition if you believe the BLM needs to stop the obstruction and release the now overdue report on their future plans for the Wild Horse and Burro Program. This way we can prove to the BLM that the American people demand transparency from them.

Thank you,

AWHC

We realize it is the beginning of the holiday seasons, and we so appreciate everyone who still is stepping up and saving lives. God bless you!!

The BLM intends to remove all wild horses from the Caliente Complex — We’re fighting back

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced its decision to round up and permanently remove ALL wild horses from the Caliente Herd Area (HA) Complex in Nevada.

It should come as no surprise that the BLM did not consider reductions to domestic livestock in the same area before announcing its intention to eradicate the Caliente Complex mustangs. This comes as the Acting Director of the BLM has repeatedly sided with private livestock owners over the lives of wild horses.

But this decision is different from authorizing a standalone roundup — The BLM decision would eradicate mustangs in eight of the nine Herd Management Areas (HMAs) in the Caliente Complex.

That’s why AWHC joined with The Cloud Foundation (TCF) and Western Watersheds Project (WWP) to sue the BLM and stop them.

In a moment, we’ll explain why the BLM decision is illegal. But first, we’re going to humbly ask: If just 5% of you made a tax-deductible donation toward our legal defense fund, we would surpass our critical November fundraising goal →

Under federal law, mustangs are one of two animals in our country specifically protected by an Act of Congress. The bald eagle is the other. As part of the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act, wild horse populations must be managed to maintain “a thriving natural ecological balance.”

1 ) By refusing to protect wild horses or give full consideration to the long term impacts of this wild horse wipeout plan, the BLM deprived the American people of the opportunity to assess and respond to the rationale underlying this major decision.

2 ) Additionally, the BLM must consider reasonable alternatives short of the outright elimination of wild horses in these HMAs. By refusing to consider a reduction in livestock grazing, the BLM is violating the National Environmental Policy Act , its mandate to protect wild horses under the 1971 Wild Horse Act.

3 ) Remember — more than 500% more BLM land is authorized for livestock than for wild horses and burros in the West, and many of these private livestock owners benefit from as much as half a billion dollars annually in taxpayer subsidies. The claims of wild horse “overpopulation” by the BLM are false, further evidenced by the fact that wild horses are not found on 88% of BLM lands.

That’s why AWHC’s legal team is suing. Our suit regarding the Caliente Complex was just fully briefed on summary judgment, meaning it is officially moving forward at a time when the threat of slaughter is once again looming large.

We will keep you updated as this case develops. Litigation is one of the most important tools we have to advocate on behalf of America’s wild horses and burros. If just 5% of you donated to this email toward our legal defense fund, we would surpass our November fundraising goal →

Our wild horses don’t have a voice. Your continued support allows us to be theirs.

Thank you,

American Wild Horse Campaign

Miniature horses, donkeys and mules all have one thing in common; everyone else is taller than they are! As the saying goes, the eyes are the window to the soul so it is understandable that they would become anxious if they are unable to look into a person’s eyes to decide whether they are friend or foe. With safety always as my first priority, I work with my minis from a lower position whenever it’s safe to do so. That way, I can make eye contact with them, and I make certain they are always lavishly rewarded with an oats reward for their compliance. You can make fun of me if you want to, but another thing that is important is the way you talk to them. Baby talk INVITES their interest where a perpetually firm voice, or a clicker, does not invite the same kind of intimacy. The results of using this safe approach to miniature have been amazing! My minis are always calm and happy to cooperate and learn! Learn more about this gentle and effective way to manage and train YOUR mini on my website at www.luckythreeranch.com under TRAINING and in the STORE.

The BLM is moving fast — Two new announcements re: wild horses

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

The Bureau of Land Management is moving fast — This past week alone the BLM concluded a roundup in the Challis Herd Management Area (HMA) in central Idaho and announced that the agency will be moving forward with a plan to reduce the size of the wild horse and burro population in the Twin Peaks HMA in northeast California by 80% over the next 10 years.

Challis Roundup: 295 Wild Horses Captured

The BLM forcibly removed 295 wild horses from the Challis HMA between Nov. 5 and Nov. 11 as part of the Idaho roundup. This week the agency is expected to complete a census flight to determine how many wild horses will be returned to the 169,000-acre area.

The vast majority of the wild horses removed from these public lands will not be returned to the wild. Many will spend their lives in the BLM’s holding facilities, or worse, face being killed or sold for slaughter if Congress pulls the plug on funding for their long-term care.

We can expect the roundups to be greatly accelerated if the Senate approves the $5 billion plan, pushed by the livestock industry and BLM’s Acting Director, which would reduce wild horse populations in the West to near extinction levels.

AWHC is working to ensure this plan is not implemented: Help us continue to organize against the greatest threat to wild horses and burros in generations by making a donation if you can.

You can read more about the Challis Roundup in this article from the Idaho Statesman here.

Twin Peaks HMA: BLM Officially Moves to Reduce Herd Size

The BLM recently released its management plan for the wild horses and burros of the Twin Peaks HMA — Including future helicopter roundups and fertility control over the next ten years.

According to the Sierra Sun Times: “This plan calls for several approaches, including using helicopter drive trapping, bait-and-water trapping and fertility control to reduce the herd … over ten years.”

While AWHC supports using fertility control, we do not support the drastic reduction in herd sizes for wild horses and burros in this HMA.

Nearly 90% of the existing wild burro population will be removed over ten years, leaving just 72 animals on the range and destroying the genetic health of this herd.

For the Twin Peaks wild horses the plan is almost as bad: reduce the herd by 80% and release castrated stallions (geldings) onto the range, a move that will take the wild out of these wild horses by destroying their natural behaviors. AWHC has a pending case at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that will determine whether or not the BLM can release geldings onto the range before its research into the impacts of the procedure on wild horses is completed.

You can read the Sierra Sun Times article here.

AWHC is the eyes and ears on the ground and the voice for mustangs and burros in the halls of Congress and the courts of law. Donations, of any size, give our field team the resources they need to document these roundups as well as give us the resources to also intervene when possible through the courts. No donation is too small to make a difference.

Thank you — And we’ll keep you updated,

NOVEMBER 911 – 4 BEAUTIFUL SOULS SHIPPING TO SLAUGHTER – CAN WE SAVE THEM?? THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW!.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

It is go time once againFirst I want to say Thank You, for saving so many precious lives. Sadly, the emergencies keep coming and we have a very short deadline to save these horses.

I NEED TO COMMIT BY FRIDAY MORNING TO KEEP THEM OFF THE TRUCK!, But it is up to y’all if you want me to say yes!

I received an urgent call this morning. We have three, possibly 4 who are scheduled to ship Friday, -(The Stallion call was a separate one, but we need to try and save him too.)

We have an old Arabian mare. She is said to be as sweet as sweet can be. Her hooves need a bit of help, but she deserves no less than to live out her life in peace, surrounded only by love.

We have another old and pregnant TB mare. She definitely needs some TLC, and being pregnant, she desperately needs the proper groceries.

There is another pony who may have an adopter. We are praying that is the case.

The Stallion mentioned above is approximately 4 years old, and you are his only chance. The great news with him is that he has a wonderful home offer if we can save him.

All these kids will need to be bailed, vet checked, transported and cared for as always. We cannot save them without the funding needed to cover the costs and to provide feed and care.

PLEASE HELP US SAVE THESE LIVES!

Back at the rescue we have stallions to geld, lots of vet bills and a large need for milk powder. Our little Jack donk needs serious hoof care and he needs to get gelded before the weather is too bad. Castle, our yearling stallion also needs to be gelded immediately.

If you want to donate directly to the vet, here is the information.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

Acting BLM Director William Perry Pendley’s recent declaration of wild horses as the top existential threat to public lands (even though wild horses aren’t on 88% of BLM land!) and his claim that it will cost $5 billion to “solve” the wild horse “problem” is the culmination of a years-long propaganda war against mustangs and burros.

The war is being waged by the commercial livestock industry, which seeks virtual eradication of these cherished animals in order to maximize taxpayer-subsidized grazing of privately-owned cattle and sheep on public lands.

This anti-mustang propaganda war was boosted recently with the capitulation of the Humane Society of the U.S., ASPCA and Return to Freedom to the cattlemen’s mass mustang roundup agenda.

With that in mind, your team at AWHC has been fighting back hard — from the battleground of Nevada to the seat of power in Washington DC — and we want to share some of our most recent work with you today.

Fighting Back at Ground Zero in the Wild Horse War: Nevada

On October 23, we organized a high-profile press conference with Nevada business leaders and a leading conservationist to counter the anti-wild horse messaging at a screening later that evening of the propaganda film “Horse Rich Dirt Poor.”

Well known real estate developer and Storey County Commissioner Lance Gilman and Erik Molvar, Executive Director of the Western Watersheds Campaign, struck back forcefully against the scapegoating of wild horses and in favor of protecting these iconic animals on public lands in the West. Read more about this highly successful event here.

Defending Wild Horses & Burros in Washington, DC

AWHC teamed up with our colleagues at Animal Wellness Action and The Cloud Foundation to hold a briefing on Capitol Hill for Congressional staff to discuss the mass roundup plan and its true cost to American taxpayers and the wild horses and burros we cherish. In one of the most successful Hill briefings ever, 35 staffers showed up to learn more about this issue that is obviously of concern to so many of their constituents. You can read more about this event here.

At the same time and a few miles away, the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board was meeting — with AWHC staff in attendance to ensure that your voices were represented and heard.

Throughout the meeting, BLM officials and most advisory board members expressed their utter disdain for public opinion, which they dismissed as being “emotional” and “uneducated.” It’s clear where the public stands on the mass roundup and surgical sterilization plan, as our most recent polling documents. At the meeting, we made sure that the voice of the people was not ignored.

Read more about the board meeting here.

Fighting to Keep Wild Horses Wild

While we’re battling on the national front, AWHC is investing significant resources to protect locally cherished herds and support humane management programs.

From the Virginia Range — where our darters have delivered more fertility control treatments to wild horses in six months than the entire BLM did last year — to the Onaqui Mountains in Utah, where we’re helping the BLM and the Wild Horses of America Foundation expand an existing fertility control program, to the Salt River in Arizona where we work closely with the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group, we’re working every day to keep wild horses wild and prove that humane management work.

You won’t want to miss our latest updates from the field here.

We Couldn’t Do This Work Without You!

Our mustangs and burros don’t have a voice — Which is why we’re using ours. If just 5% of you donate to this email, we could clear our monthly fundraising goal and show the BLM that the public proudly supports this important work to keep wild horses and burros wild and free!

From all of us here at AWHC — Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for supporting our work.

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Never has it felt more true.  The horses come to AAE for a reason, because of your support, it’s possible.
THANK YOU for all of the GREAT THINGS you do to make it possible to help so many horses!

CONWAY, one we were able to help

Conway came to AAE with six of his other equine friends after the passing of his elderly owner.  Due to his owner’s health conditions and physical limitations, this herd had not received adequate care for quite some time.  The County animal care agency had been involved for quite some time.  Though we offered assistance over a year ago; owner declined, looking only for financial support.
Conway had foundered; he had not received hoof or dental care for quite a while.
His hooves were painful, and he was very depressed.
Conway on day of pick-up in July 2019
Conway was a bit nervous, lacking confidence and appreciation for humans.  He was not readily halterable without patience and try.
Conway was evasive, sensitive, and really wanted to be alone.  He was not a fan of hoof handling, either, understandably so.
Shortly after arrival, radiographs were taken of Conway’s hooves, and he got much needed hoof and dental care.

  

Conway needed sedation for hoof care initially.  After two- to four-week trim cycles, continued hoof care and much love and attention, this lil’ guy has come around.  He’s beginning to seek attention, and he stands quietly for the farrier.  Conway has some sensitivity with the farrier when rasping his dorsal wall, likely due to residual sensitivity, but he seems to improve with each trim cycle.  Conway is living in a small mini horse/donkey herd environment, and his personality is slowly surfacing.

Recent photo of Conway shortly before moving on to his forever home.
 
Conway’s hooves before and after.
Thank you to Conway’s veterinarian, Diana Stolba, DVM, Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center,
and farrier, Chris Culcasi!
Conway THANKS YOU for helping him have a promising future!
Your support means the world to a horse.
