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

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 ...

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

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 ...

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

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 ...

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

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 ...

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

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 ...

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

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 ...
