The folks over at Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang Rescue have been given a matching fund challenge by a supporter to purchase land for the rescue.
We just received GREAT NEWS from one of our Angels. We have a wonderful donor who is throwing out this challenge.
She will purchase an adjoining 3 acre parcel for Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang so we can continue to help save the wild horses. IF, folks will step up and match the $5,000 needed to buy the land, she will “git ‘er done”!
Her donation of $5,000 will buy the land and the “matching funds” will feed the horse kids through August.
You can donate – Please put in the notes “For the Land & Life Support Challenge”. (If you can’t donate, please share far and wide. You can still be part of saving these lives).
We need a bit over $5,000 for the month of August to feed and care for the 25 horses here in NV and the permanent residents (plus two orphan foals) at our facility in Shingletown.
We are feeding about $1000 worth of hay in NV for the month (11 adults – 5 of them pregnant mares), one nursing mare with a foal and 14 orphan foals. We have several babies who are spoken for and waiting to go to their new homes, but lots of beautiful babies for adoption.
Two of the babies are in really rough shape, so they need extra prayers, as well as groceries.
The average cost for a new foal is about $300 month for milk and feed, and we have 14 of them here in NV. So that is about $4200.
The good news is that a few of them are older so once they get to a healthy weight their costs won’t be quite as much.
“Saving them” is just the beginning. Now the real work begins to feed and care for them, get them healthy and find great homes.
One of our mares that is pregnant. She was nursing the foal who belonged to the mare that was shot in the head.
