THE LIVES YOU SAVED, AND THE MINIS ARE COMING – WELL, WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM Y’ALL, WE CAN SAVE 10 MORE LIVES

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: The above are some of the lives you just saved. As you can see, some are barely alive and others are looking ok. ANOTHER PHONE CALL - The mini's we have been on standby for, since a couple of months ago, will be ready for us in the coming weeks. However, we need funds as always to get these kids to safety and vetted etc. Do you want to save these little cuties? See photos below. In the meantime, Matt picked up a 20+ mare yesterday. It seems like they are coming out of the woodwork. She is beautiful, but definitely a grandma, and needs TLC and her lil hoofers done. The other days was a really rough day. In the midst of all that is going on, we lost one of our most recently rescued donkeys. So now as we get ready to head to WA to pick up the babies, we are filled with so many emotions. Two days ago we lost our beautiful "Long Ears". He had been adopted and was about to be loaded for his new home, when Matt told me he "was not feeling it - as far as driving that day". We have both learned to listen to that little voice because over and over God has kept us safe when we listen. Hours later I would be calling the vet to come out. Long Ears had went down and . did not get up. At first he was not concerned. He was in good spirits and just lay there reaching out and grabbing bites of hay. We spent most of the day with him, giving him a chance to rest and trying to help him when he wanted to get up. I spoke with the ...

6 MORE FOALS, AND WE NEED TO SET UP THE NURSERY IMMEDIATELY! PLEASE HELP NOW SO WE CAN SAVE THEM!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: More babies are coming in. IN ADDITION to the 4 that we just saved, there are SIX MORE, including Lil Cash (shown above) who is only a month or two old. Due to the loss of life last winter, many of the mares are foaling out of the normal foal season. So we will need LOTS of Foal Lac and milk pellets etc. The new nursery is NOT set up, and there are only a few panels and no shelteras the other rescue took everything when they shut down the "orphanage". The normal trapping season is beyond over, but much like last year they just continue to round up these beautiful souls, non-stop. The new nursery was not supposed to be open, but babies do not come at our convenience, and this is an emergency situation. (There are times when I wish we were not always on the front line having to deal with immediate life saving issues. Thankfully y'all are amazing!) Right now the winds are blowing 40 miles an hour and we need to get up there, save the rest of the babies and start setting up the nursery NOW!! These babies have been through more horror than any horse should see in it's entire life, and some of them are only a month or two old. We had hoped to be able to slowly raise funds and get it set up before trapping started again next spring. However, as always, that is obviously not happening. This is so overwhelming. It sounds whiny, but I just had surgery 2 weeks ago and Matt is not even home yet with the 9 y'all just saved. So we are a tiny bit exhausted but once again, I need to ask folks to step ...

Purchase Your Raffle Tickets Now! AAE support of DreamCatcher herd reduction efforts: During 2017 and 2018, AAE has supported the herd reduction efforts of DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016.  Though preservation of genetic lines were part of DC's mission, none of the boys were castrated, the horses lived in a free range environment, and overpopulation became an issue.  In May and July 2017, with a new director in place, over 90 colts and stallions were gelded.  Though tremendous efforts were made to keep mares and stallions separate, sadly, some mares were impregnated for 2018 foals. For AAE, it all started with an orphan foal, that little Rascal, in April 2017! We continued to support and adopt.  We had another orphan colt, Cowboy, arrive in May, and June brought three young geldings, Waylon, Whitley and Walker.  Then came the first three burros, followed by Ford, Gentry and her colt, Foley.  Two more burros topped off the year. The following horses/burros were ADOPTED in 2017 and 2018:   COWBOY         WAYLON, WHITLEY, & WALKER       BURRO ZAC,  BURRO ZAC, &  BURRO JOE     BURRO BROWN & BURRO GRAY GENTRY & FORD (ADOPTION PENDING)   The new year brought five young girls the end of February:  June, Kitty, Dixie, Dolly, and Patsy.  An unexpected ...

NEARLY ALL ARE SAFE, BUT WE NEED TO SAVE ONE MORE…. We have a YOUNG, ONE EYED STALLION WHO WANTS TO GET ON OUR TRAILER, NOT THE SLAUGHTER TRUCK.

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Quick update. ONE MORE LIFE TO SAVE - A YOUNG STALLION WHO IS BLIND IN ONE EYE. HE NEEDS YOUR HELP TONIGHT!, and then our trailer will be full. We (YOU) SAVED ALL 4 of the Yakima foals. One of them already has a potential adopter and thankfully the other 3 will be heading to one of our favorite "partners", whom we work with every year and who is not only an angel, but an excellent "foal mama". So ALL these are safe and will shortly be off of our feed bill as well.(We will be helping out with a small care package, but Dannielle will be saving the rescue a great deal of time and money and find the WA babies their perfect forever home.) We were able to commit to save 3 horses, 2 donkey stallions, a mini and 1 heavily pregnant donkey mama. (The other 2 we were orginally trying to save were lucky and found other homes. However, we have ONE MORE we NEED TO SAVE ASAP! He is a stallion, who is blind in one eye and needs to stay out of the slaughter pipeline. We always try to pull a few stallions no matter where we are as they often have so little chance to be saved. We have most of the kids paid for, but sadly my truck is in the shop to the tune of about $1500. (We have already put over 30,000?? miles on her this year, and she is running strong but needed some new seals and a couple of repairs to avoid a major one). We just paid $443 to the vet in WA to get the health certificates and Coggins test so the 4 can go to their new homes, and ...

ANOTHER 911 – WILL YOU SAVE MY LIFE? IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ONGOING RESCUE, WE GOT AN EMERGENCY CALL FROM THE WA FEEDLOT.!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: 911 ANOTHER URGENT CALL... As Matt was driving me home from surgery, we received an emergency call from the Shipper in WA. 4 babies need your help! As we are the ONLY rescue he works with, it is up to us to save their lives. They literally have NO WHERE ELSE to go. They are possibly 5 or 6 months old, and it only takes 400 pounds to get them on the slaughter truck (or at least that is what I have been told). So instead of staying home taking care of me for the next 5 days or so, Matt will be dropping me off tomorrow, picking up his truck from the shop and heading to WA to save these babies, (IF we can raise funds to bail, vet and bring them home to safety). We so appreciate the donations y'all have sent to save the horses we were already working on, and thanks to your generosity we were able to secure the safety of 4 of them. Thankfully the palomino and the heavily bred mare were saved by someone else, so we were able to save a gelding ready to ship, the badly beat up horse, one of the donkeys and the branded mustang mare. We are hoping to save more, but it will depend on funding. But that rescue is on hold, as this is truly a "now" emergency and we have to make sure we do what we can to keep these guys safe. These babies desperately need your help to save them, and that requires funding, as WE ARE THE ONLY THING BETWEEN THEM AND THE DEADLY TRUCK. Once again, we will be running on faith, as I know that God put them in front of us and ...

We will need all the help we can get! Every donation made between now and November 1, 2018 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $5,000.00! By taking advantage of this incredibly generous offer you can double the impact of your donation. Doing so will help every donkey, mule, and hinny we care for.
