Thank you all for your continued support!

New horses and the story of an intake:  Sawyer and Jasper

Sawyer and Jasper recently came to AAE when their owner fell on very hard times.  They are super sweet, pony-sized kids coming three this Fall.

Sawyer

Sawyer’s was born November 2016, and her dad was a Spanish QH and mom QH/Shetland.  At intake, Sawyer weighed in at about 825 pounds and measured about 13.1 hh.  Sawyer is a fancy lil’ gal that came in with a bit of a spoiled/pushy ‘tude.
Sawyer is learning her manners, as hard as it may be because she really loves her human friends.  Sawyer is easy to bring in from pasture, and she’s lower gal on the totem pole in the herd.  She is enjoys grooming and lots of attention.  She has been trimmed once and is learning to stand patiently and give her hooves freely.  Sawyer is improving her ground skills, working in the round pen and will soon be learning to ground drive with a surcingle.
She’s taking it all in stride.  This little character will make a fun project for an experienced person.  Sawyer is available for adoption and will be ready to go to her new home after her dental appointment next week.  She is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof care.  She has a microchip in place, and her DNA results are in ( 1st Galiceno, 2nd Quarter Horse, 3rd Belgian Draft).
If you are interested in adopting Sawyer, please visit her page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.

Jasper

Jasper was born October 2016, and his dad was a Spanish QH and mom a registered Paint.  At intake, he weighed in at only 700 pounds and measured 14.0 hh.  Jasper is a laid back kinda guy that came in a little bit shy.  He was thin, and his hooves were long and flared.  He had not been gelded, so we made immediate plans to take resolve that “issue”.
Jasper was warming up quickly with only a minor setback when his personal space was invaded, and we learned he was hiding both of his gems.  Wait, it wasn’t Jasper that had the setback, it was AAE when we learned he was a bilateral cryptorchid.  Neither of his testicles had descended.  To be sure he actually had testicles and wasn’t magically gelded by some equine angel in the night, we confirmed with a blood test.  “He does have testicles”, just what we really didn’t want to hear.  Needless to say, Jasper made his way to Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center for brain surgery, I mean castration.  Thankfully, surgery went well, and Jasper recovered nicely.
Jasper has come around to enjoy humans with little concern.  He still needs to build a bit of confidence, but all in all, he’s a sweetheart of a guy.  He’s learning his manners, and he’s learning patience, relatively well.  Jasper, the lil stud colt that he was, had some inherently strong, manly beliefs.  He’s slowly losing his enthusiasm around other horses, and he’s learning to be more respectful in the presence of others.  He has not made a transition to pasture yet, because he still has some belief that he’s “the man”, a stud, and he really likes the girls.  When recently introduced to pasture, he thought he’d show Blue up a bit.  Oops, not how we thought that introduction would go.  For now, he’ll spend more time appreciating the herd and pasture from the other side of the fence.  In the meantime, Jasper is enjoying grooming and attention.  He has been trimmed twice and is still learning to stand patiently and give his hooves freely; however, there was big improvement with the second trim.
Now that Jasper has recovered from surgery, he has been improving his ground skills, working in the round pen, and he will soon be learning to ground drive with a surcingle and wear a saddle.  He has some growing to do.  He’s filling out nicely, but seems delayed a bit due to malnourishment early on.  Like Sawyer, he’s taken it all in stride.  Jasper will also make a fun project for an experienced person.  Jasper is available for adoption and will be ready to go to his new home after his dental appointment next week.  He is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof care.  He has a microchip in place, and his DNA results are in ( 1st Quarter Horse, 2nd Turkoman, 3rd Holsteiner).

If you are interested in adopting Jasper, please visit his page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.

The Story of an Intake:

While Sawyer’s intake was unusually straightforward, she’s waiting for her person to find her.  She’s getting an education and hoping the next inquiry is for her.  Might you be hers?
If you are interested in adopting Sawyer, please visit her page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.
Jasper is a great example of the many needs and challenges encountered with each intake.
He is also available for adoption and waiting to find his person.   If you are interested in adopting Jasper, please visit his page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.
Stay tuned for the rest of the story, The Story of an Intake.

THE ROUNDUP BEGINS – SIXTY PLUS BABIES EXPECTED???? WILL YOU SAVE THEM? A CHANCE TO GET THEM BEFORE THE KILL BUYER.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THEY JUST KEEP COMING! Got ANOTHER CALL!!!!l for UP TO SIXTY (60) – YES, 60 or more, ORPHAN BABIES. The roundup in NV has already started, sorting has begun and we are on call for this afternoon!!.

We have been given the chance to purchase these orphans BEFORE the kill buyer gets their hands on them. Praising the Lord for that one. Although no one likes the roundups, this makes saving the ones we can so much easier.

We are also on call for any other “special needs” kids that might come in!, whether it be injuries, starving etc. We will be there for the ones that need us!

This will save about $300 per baby just to rescue them. By being offered this “pre-purchase” opportunity, we will save about EIGHTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS ($18,000) IF we can raise enough funds and are able to rescue the 60 we were told about.

We are estimating to purchase the babies, get Coggins, health Certs etc. and to provide the milk and feed they will need to get buy for a couple months, we should plan on about $500 per baby. That will give us a couple? month’s worth of feed. Most of these babies are not weaned, and will need their milk replacer!

It is definitely going to take awhile to find homes for that many babies. There could be more! Everyone is always saying that rescues should get them before they get to the kill buyer. Well, here is our chance. I believe they only have to be about 400 pounds to ship, so we need to save as many as possible.

We are shooting for $30,000 so we can save up to 60 babies and actually be able to start providing care for them until we find them homes That is just the start, as there will most likely be at least a few who need vetting.

Once again I was given a deadline to commit, and as always, I went on pure Faith. Y’all have saved so many lives and I know that no one wants these babies to die.

It is time for EVERYONE to come together.

We still have babies at the Shipper’s in WA, and the 4 (3 stallions) in Idaho that I wrote about yesterday. We are hoping other rescues will take on even a few of the babies. We need to work together!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, Help us get this done. We have had miracle after miracle because YOU GUYS SAVED THE DAY! Let’ keep it going and save these lives.

(Babies pictured here are some of the groups you have saved in the past.)

911 FOR 2 STALLIONS, 1 GELDING & A YEARLING!! WILL YOU HELP SAVE THEM? 48 HOUR DEADLINE – PLUS ONE VERY HAPPY SINBAD!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

Another 911, Received an emergency call for the horses shown above, a couple hours ago. We have until Friday to save them. There are two stallions and a yearling who all need to be gelded. Stallions have so much less of a chance to find homes, but we can “git ‘er done”, with Your help!(Sometimes it is a bummer being the ones who can “do stallions”, but these lives matter!)

All four need saved, and we need your help to have their Coggins drawn, get their Health Certs etc. and be able to transport them to safety.

As usual, we need immediate help to save these beautiful souls. The good news is that we can save them, and the great news is that 3 of them already have a safe place to land, once we rescue and vet them. The gelding needs some serious hoof care, and then we can work on placing him also.

But the timing is critical and it is urgent as there is no leniency on the deadline.

THANK YOU for saving Sinbad. (aka Hero) (Shown above left)

Great news!! He is on his new Mama. They are with our friends Bev Boshart and her group, and Mama and Baby are loving each other. Mama needs some serious groceries as well, and both are getting everything they need and the best care possible. We so appreciate Bev taking on this little one. This is the 2nd Mama and baby this year, that they have matched up with a little magic from the vet.

Another reason to celebrate. Remember poor Obsidian? Well, here he is today. He now has his permanent home, and he is thriving there. He still has serious emotional issues, but is improving every day. He is comfortable where he is living and starting to interact a bit more on his own. Physically he is thriving. Every day this beautiful boy is healing and enjoying his life, and it is all “THANKS TO YOU”!

HELP SAVE SINBAD! MAMA DIED AND BABY NEEDS IMMEDIATE AND URGENT CARE! PLEASE HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another emergency for an emaciated foal. I received another 911 call today. One of the babies at the shipper’s is in dire shape. His Mama passed away, and he needs our help now!!!

Please help us Save Sinbad. He needs urgent and lifesaving care immediately.He will be at Mama Mel’s Urgent Care Nursery for now. I have a call in to one of our folks in WA who has had success in the past, hooking up Mama’s and orphan foals, and we have high hopes that he may be one of the lucky ones. This will be done under veterinary care, and he will have 24/7 care.

But for now we need to save him and we need to stock up on all of our supplies for the rest of the babies who are still at the Shipper’s. We know there are already more coming, and as usual, we need your help now! We are short on all our baby supplies and we still have 8 babies at this time,

Thank you!

ANOTHER URGENT CALL – SUFFERING ENDED, AND 4 MORE BABIES AT THE SHIPPER’S

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another call for 4 more babies, and maybe more. At least this one is not a 24 hour deadline. Pickup could be in a day, or a week, or even longer. Luckily the Shipper does not have a full load right now. So every day is a gift for these poor babies. Sadly, we have no option to save the moms. But we need to raise funds to secure the safety and rescue of these little babies.

We deal with so much heartbreak it is beyond comprehension. It drains you to the point of almost not being able to function. I know this is God’s rescue and He puts this all in front of us. So I am supposed to be able to handle it :( We run on so much faith, and He does always provide, even when we are down to pennies, but it takes every last thing.

THANK YOU so very much for making the last rescue possible. The mare’s leg was horribly broken. When she stepped out of the trailer she fell down, so she was humanely euthanized within hours. It of course was extra spendy, but it had to be done. THANK YOU for giving her the respect she deserved, and the gift of an end to her pain. The other gelding is now in his forever home. He may or may not have a long life, but his teeth were fixed so his horrible pain has also ended. The vet said the cancer is not painful, so he will live out his days in peace, surrounded by love. The orphans were also picked up and are home safe.

We were called on a beautiful little filly from Nevada, named Tyla. She had been caught in the middle of a stallion fight and had been laying there for hours. Everyone came together and we picked her up.

She was in horrible shape, and we took her to the vet on our way home. I also consulted our vet in CA. She is a foal specialist and is one of the best vets out there. Both of my “excellent” vets had exactly the same treatment plan. However, even with proper meds, the damage to her spine was too much and she let us know she was done. Her pain was getting worse and worse and her spinal injury was not improving.

Sadly, we had to set her free from her pain and this world. The only good thing was that for once, EVERY person in her life DID THE RIGHT THING FOR HER. If caring folks had not taken the time to make sure she was rescued, she would have literally been eaten alive on the range, as she was paralyzed when she was lying down. (She could literally only move her head and neck.) Another heartbreak for us, but a beautiful gift for an amazingly beautiful little baby. She couldn’t stay lying down, even when we helped her down. Her pain was too much.

She would stand beside my bed for literally hours, with her nose mushed into my tummy and sleep. We spent nearly 24/7 with her, but even with the best care, she never had a chance. When a baby wants to fight, and there is even the slightest chance of getting better, we will always fight with them. But that moment they tell you they are done, we have to honor and respect that, no matter how painful it is for us. That is true rescue. Always doing what is best for the critter in front of you.

So we have lots of vet bills again, and our milk and rescue funds have been depleted. We are getting ready for the new kids, and praying there will only be 4. However we all know that can change in a minute. So once again, we need your help now!

Y’all are amazing, and YOU HAVE SAVED SO MANY LIVES! Thank you for always being there for the horses.

Thank you as always, for your amazing love and support. We treasure all our Chilly Pepper Family and appreciate the fact that YOU MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE! We will keep on fighting as long as we have the funds to make it happen, even though on days like today it is simply too much. :(

The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue:

July, 2019

Ears the news…

 

I apologize for the lapse in newsletters. For those of you who do not visit us via FaceBook, you don’t know what has been going on here so I will begin with an update.

In April we took in six donkeys from a sale barn who came to us very, very ill. Our vet prepared us for the fact that they might not all make it. The donkeys  were diagnosed with  influenza and another virus. One of them, only a baby herself, aborted her foal. Two weeks after that the mules who were not even near the donkeys, came down with strangles. (The donkeys did NOT have strangles) The whole farm was put in quarantine. We beefed up our bio security big time; hazmat suits for all, foot covers, gloves, bleach to clean EVERYTHING anyone touched. Foot baths outside every entrance to every barn, and a change of suits; clothing EVERY time we changed locations.

I am happy to report that the donkeys have all recovered. After being brought up to date with vaccinations and having their hooves, which were in horrid condition trimmed they will soon be ready to be adopted.  We have negative test results on three of the mules, and two more will be tested next week. Hopefully they too will have negative results and be ready to go to new homes.

This ordeal has been incredibly stressful emotionally. It has seriously impacted our financial footing as well and it’s not over yet. We have incurred close to 9,000 in vet bills. We have been blown away by the amazing generosity of our loyal supporters.  If not for this wonderful group of people I don’t know how we would have made it through this. I don’t have the words to adequately express our gratitude.

I would be remiss if I did not thank our amazing vet Kristen Clapp and uber technician Remington Morancy; they have been phenomenal. Thanks to State Veterinarian Steve Crawford for working with us as well.  Of course super star Hannah Exel stepped right up to the plate and did whatever needed to be done. The help of our part time worker Kim Nelson and our Farm Fam pal Pomme took a bit of the load off as well. Wonderful SYA  volunteer Pam Kissel willingly dressed in hazmat gear to make sure all the animals got groomed and some cuddle time.  Those suits are like a wearable sauna. NOT FUN.  In the thirteen years of running the rescue I have never had to deal with anything like this and hope to never have to again!

I hope to get back on track with regular newsletters.

911 FOR HORRIBLY INJURY – MORE BABIES COMING, AND WE NEED HELP RIGHT NOW! WE CAN’T LET THEM SHIP :(

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

I am literally sick to my stomach and crying as I write this. The beautiful bay has a so called, “blown out knee”. We need to commit to save her right now. She is heading to the slaughter truck, if we don’t step up. Look at that leg, it has to be excruciating! That is how she stands (see middle pix).

I have to say I am saying YES, praying and believing that y’all would not let her down. Watching her move is beyond excruciating, and I cannot believe any human could leave a horse like that.

So she was headed to the slaughter truck, her knee basically broken, and in absolute agony. I am so angry and so sick. I just cried and cried when I saw her trying to walk. We need to call the emergency vet out asap, and I also told my person to GO AHEAD!. I am running on absolute faith, but the person who left this horse like this should be punished beyond belief.

On top of that we have her buddy, a 30 year old gelding who is slowly starving as his teeth are in beyond deplorable shape. He has horrible open sores in his mouth from his teeth poking into his gums, and is blind to boot. These horses have been through more pain than any horse should ever suffer. We were told the gelding has cancer, and you can see the tumors all over his head and neck.

We need to commit to both of these horses. AND, while I was writing this, I RECEIVED ANOTHER CALL about more orphans at the shipping yard.

SO WE NEED HELP, AND WE NEED IT NOW. PLEASE HELP US SAVE THESE 2 and provide what they need. I am sure the emergency vet will not be cheap, but we need to help this mare RIGHT NOW! Her pain ends tonight.

We also need to save the orphaned foals, bail them, vet them and get them home.

What a horrible way to live the “golden years”. Sometimes this is just way too much to even begin to deal with.

I told our person to call the vet, and again, I am absolutely running on faith. Faith that no one out there will let that mare suffer another minute more than she has to. Can you imagine walking on a broken leg with all that weight???? She can’t even bend over to get to water.

I know there are at least 2 more orphans, and we all know how those numbers can climb quickly.

_We had to put down “Our Beautiful Boy”, the one who was saved after Lucky Man got another home, prior to Matt picking him up. He too was in absolute agony and could barely even stand. He would have also been on the slaughter truck floor. _

There is way too much heartbreak. We had a $1000 vet bill from the last kids in WA, and they same day we had a huge bill in NV, and that is the day we had to euthanize Our Beautiful Boy; So between our last 2 vet bills, the ones we are incurring with these 2 kids, and the one for the new orphans, we will be hurting tremendously, and that is not even beginning to add up all the new expenses that will come with these kids.

I can only say THANK YOU, on behalf of all the horses you have saved. Especially from the ones who would have died during transport. The gift you have given these horses is amazing, and yes, once again I am asking you to help more horses.

It is definitely “GO TIME”!

WE NEED YOU TO SAVE THEM! PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!

Y’all are amazing, and YOU HAVE SAVED SO MANY LIVES! Thank you for always being there for the horses.

Thank you as always, for your amazing love and support. We treasure all our Chilly Pepper Family and appreciate the fact that YOU MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE! We will keep on fighting as long as we have the funds to make it happen, even though on days like today it is simply too much. :(

CHILLY PEPPER UPDATE – 6 MORE, on TOP OF THE ORIGINAL “RESCUES” – THANK YOU FOR HELPING US SAVE THEIR LIVES!!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

MARE # 2 WAS OUR “BONUS MARE”. She is in extremely critical shape. Please say a prayer for her! Her colt is also absolutely starved :(

PLEASE NOTE – OUR NEW MAILING ADDRESS IS

CHILLY PEPPER
_ PO BOX 233
_ GOLCONDA, NV 89414

It never seems to end. YOU made it possible to save the original 4 pregnant mares. During that rescue, we were given the option to save the emaciated mare you see in the above photo. There was no way we could leave her, or her starving colt, behind :(

In all honesty, she may be too far gone and have too much damage to her organs from being so starved. However, we will give her every single chance to get healthy and have a life. She will need blood work and to be seen by a vet.

We have stepped in for so many starvation cases, but sadly we have had 4 or 5 where there was simply too much damage done to their organs. Honey Bandit was definitely a miracle. If you haven’t seen his story, you should, if you want a reminder of the miracles that can happen. So we won’t quit, unless the horse asks us to respect that they are “done”. They will ALWAYS tell you.

Here is the link to his story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sO2CFim0AYs. Just copy the link and put it in your browser. Then get your tissues and remember he is a happy horse today. He does have some issues, but none that bother him :) or that he is aware of.

GOOD NEWS on Lucky Man. We paid his fees, and YOU kept him off the slaughter truck!! Where it gets even better is this. Before Matt picked him up, someone saw the post and wanted him. So not only did you keep him off the truck, it bought him time to find another home, AND, IT ALLOWED US TO SAVE ANOTHER “direct ship child”.

So instead of saving 4 mares, plus their unborn foals, we saved 4 mares, the emaciated mare and her very thin colt, a 2 year old with a horrific injury, another colt, AND Matt is currently bringing home another 7, (not 5) horses that were ALL saved from slaughter. So the rescue of 9 turned into FIFTEEN!

Of course all the extra kids put a huge dent in the funds that were raised, so once again we need folks to help us get them all vetted, get the special feed & additional vet care they need, and simply get them home.

Y’all are amazing, and YOU HAVE SAVED SO MANY LIVES! Thank you for always being there for the horses.

Thank you as always, for your amazing love and support. We treasure all our Chilly Pepper Family and appreciate the fact that YOU MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE!

911 – MAMA IS BAGGING UP, & READY TO LOAD ON THE SLAUGHTER TRUCK! 4 HEAVILY PREGNANT MARES NEED YOUR HELP RIGHT NOW!!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER 911!!

Just got the call for 4 HEAVILY PREGNANT MARES about to ship to slaughter.As you can see below, one of them is already bagging up. As usual, there is an imminent deadline, so we need to save them now!

I believe we have been given 24 hours to come up with the funds to save these kids. We NEED to get it done NOW, so we can get that mare to our nursery at Mama Mel’s so she can have her baby in a safe and clean environment.

I know we are always handling “emergencies”, but that is what the “front line, boots on the ground is all about”. If not, these beautiful ladies ship. I cannot even bear the thought of that little baby being born in the trailer on the way to slaughter, or the mom’s going to slaughter either.

Matt is delivering Obsidian and Goldy to their forever homes, and picking up the other kids. We were able to send payment for Lucky Man on time, and he did not ship! THANK YOU FOR THAT!

BUT WE NEED HELP RIGHT NOW TO MAKE SURE THESE GIRLS ARE SAFE. Can you even imagine the baby dropping into this world, in the middle of a bunch of terrified and angry horses. He/she would drop onto a filthy floor and be trampled to death. Let’s make sure she is born in a clean and quiet place, where her Mama can take care of her and she can nurse and have a life.

It was terrifying when I saw Hope had been born in the trailer, but we were equipped and took immediate steps to ensure her safety. Our trailer was not packed, and it was still oh so scary.

PLEASE do not let this happen to these babies and let’s keep their Mama’s safe too.

We need to purchase them, get them vetted and transported etc. This is just the beginning, but I am counting on our Chilly Pepper Family to step up once again. You guys are amazing and I am so very grateful, as are all the horses you save!!

Donate now and let’s “git ‘er done”. If ever there was an emergency, it is right now!!

(With all the babies, extra vet bills etc, we are absolutely wiped out. The amazing love y’all have shown is what made it possible to pick up the milk and get the vetting done etc. Sadly though, the babies and the other special needs kids have wiped out the budget. However, they are all DOING FANTASTIC, thanks to y’all!)

You can clearly see she needs out NOW to have her baby somewhere safe. Looks like baby is going to have all the milk he/she needs. PLEASE SAVE HER!!!!

Thank you as always, for your amazing love and support. We treasure all our Chilly Pepper Family and appreciate the fact that YOU MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE!

IT’S GO TIME RIGHT NOW! WE HAVE 24 HOURS TO SAVE “LUCKY MAN”! AN URGENT CALL FOR HIM AND OTHERS.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

24 HOURS TO SAVE “LUCKY MAN”. This horse was in the direct ship pen. Thankfully, we received a phone call about him and we have been given 24 hours to save him.

Will you save his life??

We are literally his ONLY chance. That is why I named him “Lucky Man”,because he was in the position of having zero chance to go anywhere but to slaughter. We don’t ask why, just how can we make it happen??

We also received an emergency call about 4 ponies who were dumped and are also at risk of heading to slaughter. I never will understand how folks let their animals nearly starve and then just dump them.

However, WE CAN SAVE THEM ALL! IF we raise enough funds, and IF we do it quickly. I have to send money for “Lucky Man” by tomorrow if we are going to save him. We have a bit longer for the ponies, but they are not safe until they are “safe and paid for”.

Good news on the home front. OBSIDIAN has found his forever home. (With his girlfriend). Unfortunately we need to raise about $ 1400 for fuel, but as seems to happen quite often at Chilly Pepper, God has wrapped all these horses into the same big trip. So we have two of the big ones going to their forever home, TOGETHER :), and we will be picking up and saving 5 more lives.

Out of the 7 orphans at Mama Mel’s Nursery, we still have 2 available. I have 8 young ones here at Chilly Pepper. So although we have had some wonderful adoptions, including Mama and Baby, we are still going through milk like crazy with the remaining 10 babies.

_We had some wonderful donations which has kept us in milk and helped with the vetting so far. But the little monkeys are gulping it right up, and the starvation cases from the last rescue are all gaining weight and so appreciative of the groceries they have been consuming. As you can see below, Obsidian looks amazing. :)_

We so appreciate y’all saving these lives!

Thank you as always, for your amazing love and support. We treasure all our Chilly Pepper Family and appreciate the fact that YOU MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE!

BABIES, BABIES, BABIES, ALONG WITH STARVED GROWN UPS, NEED YOUR HELP TODAY! GOT MILK?, GRAIN, HAY, MEDS????

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

YOU DID IT! We were able to save Mama and baby, as well as the other 15. Mama Mel & Angel were picked up and are currently safe and sound.Poor Angel had some pretty horrific injuries, and we did emergency treatment, pain meds, antibiotics, etc. on arrival and the vet came out the next day to finish clean up. (Mel & I did the immediate care that was needed, but due to the level of pain the additional cleaning would cause, we wanted to wait for the Vet as she had the good pain meds.)

This last “combined rescue”, y’all saved 15 orphans and Mama Mel & Angel, and you saved 12 just prior to that. (We are still trying to get 5 of them back from being starved and help their injuries heal up.) Thank you for making that possible.

However, we are in a serious pinch from all the ongoing vet bills, and milk and feed expenses from the rescue prior and this last one. And of course we are on “stand by” for more babies.

Our most recent groups combined had well over $5000 in vet bills, and that is NOT including the $12,000 plus that AWHC stepped up for. This was what we incurred at Chilly Pepper alone. EACH BABY drinks about $300 worth of Foal Lac in a month. I just picked up $900 in milk yesterday, but that will not last very long :( So as of right now, we are going through $3,600 each month, just in MILK POWDER alone, and that does not include any of the medical, shavings for clean dry stalls, milk pellets, grain, hay, and all the other little things these fragile kids need. Every single baby that has come in has had scours and needed meds of some sort. So did the big kids, and although they are starting to improve, every single one of them was ill, in spite of their “health certs”. They ALL need special feed and some still need meds.

I am sorry to share some sad news. My heart is broken at the loss of our beloved “Little Bandito”. He was our beautiful little Miniature Stallion that came in with the swollen eyes and severe head injury. Although he was seen by the vet and was also on medicine, his injury would steal his beautiful life from us. He had some kind of head trauma during the night. He appeared to have passed quietly, but in the morning he was gone, and his eyes were no longer swollen and he had blood coming from his nose.

Sometimes rescue makes you hurt too badly, to even breathe. I honestly don’t know how much more pain and suffering I can take.

Thank you as always, for your amazing love and support. We treasure all our Chilly Pepper Family and appreciate the fact that YOU MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE!

DEADLINE. 19 HOURS TIL PICKUP – WE CAN SAVE MAMA TOO! INJURED ONE WEEK OLD NEEDS URGENT CARE! DONATE NOW FOR BOTH!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

IT’S GO TIME IN A BIG WAY!!!

We have a rare chance to save MOM AND BABY!!! We are supposed to be picking up in approximately 19 hours, and we actually can save Mom too, – WITH YOUR HELP!

As you can see this little “ANGEL”, needs somewhat of a miracle. She is only about a week old, from what we understand. She has an injury to her leg which needs immediate and urgent care. At this age they are so delicate and it is obviously infected. They can go septic and crash so quickly. She needs immediate care.

Please help us save Angel AND HER MAMA! We are constantly being asked why we didn’t save the moms. Here is your chance! We do have the opportunity to save them both, but it is up to you. We have picked up 2 more orphans and another mare in the last week. So instead of the 15, we were working with EIGHTEEN, and that is just the number of orphans we have with us, not including any of the horses at home that have been rescued. Now we have the chance to save two more lives. But we need your help and we need it now.

We have adopted out 3 in the last week, but we are still once again feeding 15 orphans. Yes, that is better than 18, but it still is excruciatingly expensive. The babies are all improving, but it is down to the wire for saving this Mare and Her Foal. The leg will definitely need immediate medical care, and we have to keep feeding every body. The horses Matt picked up a couple weeks ago will hopefully be ready for adoption in the near future. But until then, we really enjoy feeding everyone exactly what they need.

So here is your chance to SAVE MAMA TOO! Please give generously and quickly so we can save both of them together. We see so much heartbreak, and hopefully we will be able to avoid having another “orphan”.

Let’s pick up a mare and foal pair as opposed to creating an orphan.

The kids at home are still needing extensive TLC, but are getting healthier every day!We need to make sure we can care properly for all the horses we save. There will be paperwork, blood draws, vet work etc. etc. for the new ones also.

Thank you as always, for your amazing love and support. We treasure all our Chilly Pepper Family and appreciate the fact that YOU MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE!

FIFTEEN ORPHANED BABIES NEED YOU NOW! PLEASE HELP THESE BABIES TODAY!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Chilly Pepper’s kids need your help today. We have 15 orphaned foals on hand, and we are going through milk and supplies like crazy.

Every single baby has had to be seen by a vet, and most of them needed medication of some sort. Many are still on, or finishing up their meds, and happily all are guzzling milk like crazy.

The simple fact is that to properly take care of an orphan foal, it is expensive. While the 7 NV kids’ initial vet bill is being covered by AWHC and the Horse and Man Bucket Fund, Chilly Pepper is still incurring all the normal costs. In addition to all the vet bills for the NV babies, we are responsible for any ongoing vet bills and all of the expenses for all of them.

Boring things like BioSponge, Probiotics, milk pellets, hay, shavings, etc. etc and of course the most expensive item, their milk powder, are costing well over $200 plus a day. It is imperative they get everything they need now, and they are. However, we need help to keep saving lives.

We also need to maintain vehicles, trailers etc., and although the NV babies trickle in one or two at a time, (and those rescues are not as dramatic as the large groups we get at any one time), they still have the same costs once we get them, and we still need to buy milk and give them the best care possible.

We have permanent residents at Chilly Pepper, as well as many other kids who are getting the TLC they need to be ready for their forever homes. It all depletes the budget, but is necessary to do what we do.

We simply cannot save these lives without y’all.

We are currently standing by for not only more Yakima Babies in WA, but others in NV. So as always, there is never a dull moment or that thing they call rest, lol.

So please help these beautiful babies today!

Thank you as always, to all the folks who have stepped up and are part of this amazing journey and responsible for saving all these lives.

YOU, are the reason these horses have a chance!

URGENT HELP NEEDED TO SAVE MORE BABIES. – CLOCK IS TICKING – 48 HOURS TIL WE NEED TO PICK UP…..

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

GOT MILK? We are going through milk by the gallons, and MORE BABIES ARE FLOODING IN, .WILL YOU HELP US SAVE THEM?

Another 911 call. There are babies at the shipping yard and we need to buy them/pick them up by Sunday. There are at least 4, and those numbers are normally higher by the time we get there.

The nursery also was put on notice that one of the Trappers has a large group of horses and will have 
orphan foals for us next week. We need to make sure we can save them so they do not get left out on the range for coyote bait. CAN WE COMMIT TO THEM? It is up to you.

We knew the rush would be here soon, and of course it is here before we are ready.Just by Sunday we will have 12 babies IF we get the funding needed to purchase, save, feed and vet them. This does NOT include the group coming in next week. As usual, we are still in the midst of one rescue, when the next one hits.But we are on the front line and we are the difference between life and death for these babies, not to mention all the adults we save along the way when we can.

We were hoping to slow down, but instead the volume of babies in WA is doubling, and we are now once again the “go to” rescue for the Virginia Range orphaned foals in NV. As I write this, Travis is on his way to pick up 3 more in NV and bring them to Chilly Pepper.

So you can be sure we will need all of your help, every time you want us to save more lives. YOU ARE THE ONES SAVING THESE LIVES! We simply cannot do it without you.

Due to the increase in potential babies, we are going to have to expand the nursery facilities in WA, help get our satellite in ID setup with more much needed, life saving equipment, and somehow get more space where we live so we have more housing for more foals at once.

Sadly, it is that time of year when we go from one emergency to the next, and many times they are in the middle of the ongoing one. You are saving so many lives, but ALL OF IT depends on you, your donations and your love and support.

So as always, we are willing to do the 24/7 care, the boots on the ground and be available at a moment’s notice, but your funds are what make it possible. So please remember that EVERY TIME we throw out a fund raiser, WE ARE ON THE WAY to save more lives.

The front line is brutal, and we live in a horrifyingly cruel world. Your love and support is what gives us the courage and strength to keep on.

Most of you are lucky and will never have to stand and watch in horror as the horses are loaded on the slaughter truck, while their babies are screaming for their families.What we see on a daily basis is taking it’s toll. But right now, we will keep on saving as many lives as we can, and that is ALL BASED ON YOU!

THANK YOU! for each and every one of the lives you have already saved, and for sticking with us through this nightmare and helping us save as many lives as we can.

Please give generously today, so we can “git ‘er done”. I need to let the folks know whether we will have funds to purchase the babies this next week and this weekend.

BABY 911 – MORE BABIES – WA & NV. – PLEASE HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

IT IS BABY TIME ALL THE TIME!!!, and we need your help Now!

It is “Go time” again, although it hasn’t ever really stopped.

They just keep ON coming, and we are about to get hit. It is the time of year when they will start coming in bunches. Now that we are the “go to” for the NV kids as well, we have even more responsibility, and it is keeping us running.

More babies means more milk, and we are going through gallons. The baby in NV is heading to Comstock this morning, and Mel will be giving the new arrival the much needed Colostrum as soon as it gets there. Matt will is heading there now, so people everywhere are working on these babies. A big thanks to Stacy, Maureen Daane and AWHC for taking care of this baby and getting it to Comstock. We will be picking him up as soon as he is done at the vet.

Mel has two babies available for adoption at our nursery in WA. The four that are still with me are not completely out of the woods, but doing well so far.

Once again we need “milk money”, as well as funding for all the other costs involved. We also need to replace our Colostrum supply at the Nursery in WA, as well as the Foal Response, and all the other goodies the newborns need. (Our babies need more help than the ones born domestically, as many of them are left behind due to illness or other physical issues.)

Please donate today and let’s keep on saving more lives!!

BABIES, BABIES, BABIES – THEY JUST KEEP COMING! CAN WE KEEP SAVING THEM ALL?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

IT IS BABY TIME!!!

6 babies in WA, and 3 in NV. We are in full on Baby Season, and it is a bit more complicated this year. Not only are we, (so far), pretty much the only rescue working on saving as many of the Yakama wild horses being shipped to slaughter as we can, we are once again the “go to” rescue in NV for the Virginia Range orphaned and injured horses.

So while I was in WA handling those kids, Matt was in NV, and picked up 3 more orphaned foals.

As always, we try and work with as many other folks as we can. Thankfully we were able to leave 3 of the babies with other “team members” in WA. To borrow a quote from Block Chain, “Team Work, makes the Dream Work”.

However, we still have 7 orphans here who are are ages 2-3 days up to a couple months? And then we have our 5 or 6 month old who is barely here, came in literally covered in ticks and starving to boot.

We still have 8 of the Pauite yearlings from the Palomino Valley roundup, as well as all the kids from the latest rescue. (Photo below shows some of the boys from the prior rescue.) Good news, Buddy may get to keep his eye, although he is still blind on one side. We have lots of starving kids who will need special groceries, and more vet care, for some time.

So the babies NEED MILK MONEY, and we still need to do more vetting on the kids from the latest rescue. We had some wonderful donations, which nearly caught us up from last month, so we are once again current with all of our vet bills.This is crucial as we need to be able to call them for our emergencies, which come up often when you are on the front line. So thank you to EVERYONE who helped us get so close to being caught up.

But with 7 babies we are looking at about $2100 JUST FOR MILK POWDER for one month’s worth of Foal Lac. This does not include milk pellets, grain, shavings etc. We use about 6 bags a day to keep the babies in soft clean beds :). The list of items for these babies is endless, as most of y’all know.

NV babies are about 3 hours away to pick up, but it still costs a fortune to drive there and back. It was close to 1000 miles to pick up these kids, even though it was “local – LOL) in our own state.

Of course with the additional number of babies, and the additional injured horses that we are now going to be responsible for, we will have to set up some more corrals and shelter. Right now we are at capacity, so we need to get a bit more space. It’s only $12,000 for the adjacent 12 acres. We could easily use a hose during the summer to run water, and we would need to fence it and put up some shelter.

As the horses’ needs grow, so does ours if we are going to provide the best care for them.

THANK YOU AS ALWAYS FOR SAVING ALL OF THESE LIVES! IT IS BECAUSE OF YOU AND YOUR GENEROSITY THAT ANY OF THIS IS POSSIBLE!!!

Hi,

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!. Your donation and your love and support for these horses has made it possible to change so many lives.

Together we have saved well over a thousand lives. You are the reason we can do this, and as hard as it is, I am extremely grateful that together, we are making such a difference.

I am getting ready to make milk for the babies we just picked up. (The photo above are some of the milk babies we saved last month.). I will send new pix out shortly, but wanted to let you know how much everything you do is appreciated.

I am not always quick to get out personal thank you’s, but I hope you will forgive me as it is just myself and my hubby doing all of this. I know it doesn’t excuse a slow thank you, but it’s all I got.

God bless and please know how much we appreciate you being part of our Chilly Pepper Family. Together we are strong and can keep on saving lives.

Hugs and love,

Palomino (Lauri) and Matt
