IT’S GO TIME! – 911 FOR PREGNANT MARE SHIPPING TO SLAUGHTER – LOADS TOMORROW – AT LEAST 12 BABIES AND MORE EXPECTED!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: IT'S GO TIME AGAIN - Just got the call for a pregnant wild mare who is slated to ship tomorrow. I have to commit asap so we can keep her off the slaughter truck. Catcher called, and so did the shipper. I have AT LEAST 12 MORE BABIES AT THIS MOMENT - and more expected by the time I get there. However, I CANNOT say yes to saving these kids without raising enough money to pay back the emergency funds that were depleted with this last rescue. With the balances left for the unexpected repairs on the trucks and trailers, the last batch of hay and the previous vetting, even the emergency funds are depleted. Chilly Pepper cannot responsibly commit to saving more horses without having enough money to care for the horses we already have saved. I am sure if there are 12 babies now, by the time I get up there we will be looking at a much larger number. The catchers are out in full force trying to get as many rounded up as they can before winter. I realize the world as we once knew it is upside down. I am having to make decisions based on the reality of our current situation. I can only save horses I know I can provide and care for. I am hoping that y'all want them saved enough to skip a latte, or a night out, or that much loved pedicure. Times are tough, but these horses do not deserve to be slaughtered. More and more people are dumping horses and it seems like we are doing quite a bit of "hospice type care". Saving these animals and providing the love and care they so deserve for the short bit of time I often have with them is important. YOU ...

THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT AND FOR GETTING THESE “GRANDMA’S & INJURED BABIES” TO SAFETY

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Thank you for your wonderful donation and all of the love and support. I wanted to take a couple minutes to stop and say "thank you" for your life-saving donation. I cannot begin to express my appreciation for your help saving these precious lives. This group is a hot messWe have two babies who had huge chunks of their faces ripped away by "an adult horse?" (That is the info I was given.) The injuries are pretty horrific and we have 2 others with infected legs and another who was stepped on and can barely walk. So sadly, lots of injuries that need a lot of special care and medication. Grandma Sue is in with one of the babies and loving it. She is missing most all of her teeth, so is another "special needs" lady. It is so nice to watch her with the baby. They bring so much comfort to each other. Sadly Great Grandma Lilly most likely has very little time. She was down this morning and I was not sure if she would be able to get back up. Thankfully our prayer chain was answered and she is up again. SHE IS A VERY HAPPY GIRL THOUGH. We had her hoofers done, had her vetted yesterday and have given her every thing the vet could think of to help her get stronger. Her teeth are horrific, but Doc said "her legs are even worse", and that is not good. She is simply enjoying the loves and having food that she can actually eat. She is drinking and eating well, but there has been a tremendous amount of damage done to her poor body. I am afraid she will only be here for a short time, but at least she is not going to die scared and alone, but rather ...

911 CALL TO SAVE GRANDMA & GREAT GRANDMA FROM SLAUGHTER A CALL FOR AT LEAST 9 MORE BABIES AT THE SHIPPER! CLOCK IS TICKING

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: A HEARTBREAKING CALL FOR AN ABUSED, EMACIATED "GREAT GRANDMA". Lilly is a 35? year old mare who was on her way to a horrific end. Her feet are horrible, she can barely walk, she is starved beyond measure and her teeth are a nightmare. Yet even after being abused and neglected, she is still the sweetest thing on this earthWILL YOU HELP ME HELP HER? You can clearly see by how uneven her teeth are that she has had no care, and has been slowly starving to death. I honestly don't know if we can offer her more than good food, comfort, and no pain, but I will do every possible thing I can to make the rest of her short life the best of her life. But I need your help to do that. ANOTHER HEARTBREAK - Grandma Sue is a wild, very old, very thin mare who does NOT deserve to be crammed into a crowded trailer and trampled on the way to the slaughter house. I honestly do not know if she will much time left either, but it should certainly be one where she is loved and cared for. I have AT LEAST 9 MORE BABIES coming, NOT INCLUDING the 4 we just got. So we need to vet 15 more kids on Monday, so I can hopefully head back to NV. The stock trailer is finally fixed, to the tune of $2500+, but we have to be safe when we haul this precious cargo. I realize the emergencies keep on coming, (believe me, I am emotionally and physically exhausted, especially because I am here alone), but these babies and these "old ladies" feel like their life is just as important as the other ones we saved. So PLEASE help me save them if you canThe Shipper is ...

TODAY’S EMERGENCY INTAKE – THE REASON WHY I AM “STILL HERE”? A LIFE SAVING CALL FROM THE TRAPPER!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Meet "DAKOTA" - Chilly Pepper's newest critical care child. I had an emergency intake today. A 911 call from the Trapper to see if I wanted to help an injured colt. The decision had already been made to "destroy the colt", when the trapper heard "I was still in WA". Is Dakota the real reason I was stuck here for so long? I knew God had a reason, and if I had left for NV as planned, this beautiful yearling would be dead right now. I am so grateful for the call and the chance to save him. Dakota will most likely need his eye removed due to the amount of trauma. It is horribly injured and he is on pain meds and antibiotics. He will be vetted at the earliest opportunity, and sadly, his care will be spendy to say the least. God obviously kept me here for a reason, and it was clear to me that I was supposed to be here for Dakota, so of course I agreed. ( I was actually expecting a call for something like this, critically injured or ill. ) However, I am praying hard for a different outcome than we had with my beautiful "Miracle Girl". Dakota was wild, but is gentling up quickly as he seems to understand we are helping. Mama Mel and Cam rushed right over so we could get him vetted and some pain meds on board. Teamwork makes the dreams work! *So grateful for the amazing folks around me!* He also has a huge hard lump behind his right leg, which actually concerns me nearly as much as his eye. I am praying it is nothing too serious. At this point he is much more comfortable than when he arrived ...

STILL stuck in WA – broken trucks and trailer issues – AND….. – MORE BABIES, AN OLD MARE, & BRED BACK MOM & FOAL PAIR!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: URGENT - MORE HORSES NEED YOU TO HELP THEM STAY ALIVE, and as usual, their time has run out. We have a Mare and Foal Pair, (and Mama is bred back)so that is 3 lives to save!, PLUS... We have the mare above that I still need to pay for, (I simply couldn't wait to fund raise and had to commit on faith.) PLUS - MORE BABIES are coming from the trapper and the shipper! It's been a super rough week, and as usual we don't know for sure how many horses need us. One of the catchers had at least 3, and that is just for today. Shipper has ? The rescue has been hit all at once with the need for truck tires, (and it was imminent - one was ready to blow), transmission repair and brake work for the truck and wiring on the horse trailer braking system. After getting the transmission fixed, thanks to some amazing people out there, the hauler was on the way when the brakes started to malfunction. After checking both the truck and trailer, we are looking at another bill (not including tires or transmission) that will be anywhere from an expected bill of $1500 to $2000?? or more. (It was internal, brake pads are fine, but we still have to get the necessary repairs to actually have working brakes, and the stock trailer has some wiring that is old and sketchy ie. dangerous. I still can't get back to NV until we get the 2nd truck and trailer fixed. However, instead of being gone back to NV, I was here to treat one of the colts that came in with an injury. He is beautiful, but it took all of us to safely treat him without causing him unnecessary stress. He ...

TODAY – 911 CALLS from TRAPPER & THE SHIPPER. UPWARDS OF 8? BABIES and THAT IS JUST TODAY! FUNDS NEEDED ASAP TO SAVE THESE!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: More babies and a rare chance to save a beautiful stallion. They need YOU to save their lives. I received a call from the shipper and one of the catchers today. Sadly, our coffers are close to empty. I still need about $5000 to cover the latest group's shipping, vetting and to pay the wonderful folks who are taking care of the critters and our special needs kids in NV, while I am up here rescuing. I realize the groups are running together, (believe me, I want to go home...) But as usual, in the middle of the last 20+ rescued, as I wait for paperwork I get another call for more. MORE BABIES need us NOW! I have to give the catcher and trapper an answer by tomorrow to see if we can take on the new ones in front of us. We need to save the stallion too. LET'S SAVE THEM ALL!! I realize the pandemic has wiped out so much income and caused so much hardship, and I so appreciate every penny that has been donated. However, I can only rescue as many critters as I have funds for. I need to raise the funds to finish this last group (we still have 12 available for adoption) and then have enough to safely and responsibly save this next group. I will keep going as long as I can, but right now I cannot responsibly say yes to more horses without your help and commitment! WILL YOU HELP ME SAVE THEM? Just this morning they were with their families. Tonight, alone but together, they scream for their Mama's and their band. Please help us give them the gift of life. I asked, and there is no where else for them to ...
