MY HEART IS SHATTERED – RIP MY BEAUTIFUL MIRACLE GIRL – & OF COURSE ANOTHER CALL 12 MORE BABIES & ACTIVELY ON STAND BY FOR MORE

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Since my last update, including this little angel, y'all saved 12 babies lives!!!!!** AS ALWAYS, the calls KEEP COMING! The new number is 12, YES - ANOTHER 12, and I am currently on standby for babies from 2 other catchers. So most likely by the time vetting would come, I will be even more buried. DO I tell him yes? Their Mom's and Dad's literally just loaded onto a slaughter truck, and I need to be able to say YES to all of them!! This will put Vetting, coggins and paperwork in the multiple thousands. DO WE, our CHILLY PEPPER FAMILY - SAVE THEM??? I cannot do this without raising funds to pay for them, feed them, etc. etc. I honestly would rather crawl into a hole and not talk to anyone or see anyone. I lost my beautiful "Little Miracle Girl". It hurts so much and it is like she literally climbed into my soul. She certainly crawled physically into me.. More heartbreak - I simply do not have words that will do this beautiful girl justice. She survived predators, ie bears, cougars, coyotes and a harsh environment with little feed and water. Her whole life must have been excruciating, except for the last 4 days she was with me. Thankfully she had pain meds and oh so much love. All she wanted was to be in my lap. She literally would try to crawl into me and was ALWAYS nuzzling my knee. It was as if she knew that we shared the same excruciating type of pain, although hers had to be worse. She was a completely wild filly on Sunday and could kick like a pro. We bonded the second our eyes met. It sounds funny, but if you look at her ...

While we all continue experiencing uncertain times, there are still many, many horses in need. We continue to support as resources are available. We are currently working with a distressed sanctuary to help reduce their herd. This is definitely be a team effort, so Team AAE, let's do this again! Together, we can make a difference for these horses. Here's the next group we've been working on: These three muskateers are late teens/20-ish, and they came with a little baggage. SHOOTER Shooter is a 2001 buckskin Mustang gelding. Besides needing the basics (e.g. hoof and dental care, vaccines, microchip, and deworming), he has a slow-growing, sizable mass a the base of his jaw. If left unchecked, it could grow to interfere with breathing and swallowing. Surgery quote is estimated at $1500-2500 for removal. Additional costs will include biopsy, hospitalization, medications, post-surgical care and follow up. He's a sweet ol' guy that is in good shape, otherwise. He's halterable and relatively easy ...

A SHARP KNIFE – OR A CHANCE AT LIFE? ANOTHER EMERGENCY CALL, – MORE BABIES? WHICH ONES DO WE SAVE?

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Where to even start. Above - MY LITTLE MIRACLE GIRL Another 911 call this morning. Would I give this little girl a chance?? When she was brought in off the range, the choices were a sharp knife or give her a chance with me. We have seen worse legs that healed, legs that looked better but did not heal, but never have I seen such a healthy little girl with such a fighting attitude. I had to say yes. Yesterday I was looking at 8 babies, heading out to pick up 3 more and wondering how on earth I could say yes to all of them. Once again it was on faith. Faith that someone will skip a coffee and send that money. I know Covid has changed our world and funds are tight, but we funds are nowhere near where we need to be. Vetting the 13 that are in front of me is going to be hideously expensive. We have several babies with injuries, most of them I can treat, but at least one of them will need surgery and of course this little one will need some veterinary intervention and I will treat her under my vet. MY LITTLE MIRACLE GIRL needs a miracle, and I have every intention of fighting with her as long as she wants. LOOK at how beautiful she is. That big toned butt, her shiny coat. This little girl wants to thrive to survive. As always, I am on the front lines and it is one emergency after another. It is exhausting and my silly shoulder is not working so that adds an extra special element of fun to the whole rescue. I wonder sometimes if that is why God sends me the worst cases, because ...

IT’S GO TIME AGAIN! ANOTHER BABY 911 SHIPPER CALLED – BABIES ON THE FEED LOT TRAPPER CALLED – BABIES NEED US NOW!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Above - one of the babies y'all just saved. Another 911, 2 urgent calls for orphans today. One from the shipper - and another call from one of the catchers. I know there are 4 at the catchers and not sure how many are at the shippers. It's up to y'all if we can keep saving these precious lives. I simply cannot do it without your help. You save so many, and I am praying we can keep saving more. I will do the work if y'all keep helping with the finances. (I am sure by the time I get there the numbers will have grown as usual. But I am guessing 8 or more?) We are tapped out from all the vet bills, bail, medications, transport etc. etc., not to mention feeding our special needs kids. These babies have nowhere to go, and as you can see, our beautiful REBA, (shown below) is going to need vet care, blood work, and can only have mash for the rest of her life. She needs help now. She did ask me to tell you - THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY LIFE, NOW PLEASE HELP ME FEEL BETTER........ Please help save more lives. There are so many times I think I just can't stand the heartbreak anymore, but how do I limp away? Each and every single life matters. In all reality though, you decide who we save. Let's keep saving every one we can. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KEEP HELPING US SAVE MORE LIVES, YOU CAN GO TO: You can go to gofundme You can go to Paypal if you would like to help these horses. ->You can donate via check at: (PLEASE NOTE NEW PO BOX #) Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang, PO Box # 233 Golconda, NV 89414 You can also donate ...

A BIG THANK YOU – AND A SAD UPDATE. A MOMENT BETWEEN NEW RESCUES WHILE TAKING CARE OF THE ONES WE JUST SAVED.

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Some of the last group of babies y'all saved. THANK YOU, ALL OF YOU, who are making a difference whether it is from sharing, caring and praying, or donating. Together we can keep saving them. I wanted to take a quick moment and say how grateful I am for ALL OF YOUR DONATIONS and the LOVE AND SUPPORT! My heart is broken once again, and *only YOU and the faith I have in God has gotten me this far.* Lindsy, the beautiful 30 year old + paint pony, was always a possible "humane euthanasia". When Doc recommended giving her a chance and the medicine which could help her, I did every possible thing anyone could do. She had more love in the last few weeks than a lot of horses ever get in a lifetime. It was expensive to get her medicine and get her lil hoofers done, but thanks TO ALL OF YOU, she had EVERY chance and oh so much love. She DID NOT ship to slaughter. So although it hurt so much to love her enough to end her pain, that is what had to be done. Losing Samantha, the little pony with the horrible injuries to her face, and eye, just about did me in. After spending lots of time vetting and caring for her, she was at the vet to have her eye repaired again. Before her surgery even began, she passed under anesthesia. With all the damage done to her face and skull, there was a really good chance she had either a brain bleed or even a heart issue. When Doc called me it was beyond devastating. She was just a baby. We have to remember once again, she had more love and care in her short time with us than ...

STARVING & BADLY INJURED MARE, ANOTHER 911 AS BABIES ARE AT THE SHIPPER’S. NO TIME TO GRIEVE OR EVEN BREATHE – THEY NEED US NOW!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Wow - the calls just won't stop. I've been home all of 3 days, and this injured and starving mare was today's 911We have to save her. She is super sweet and can hardly walk and is obviously starving. She wouldn't even make the trip to slaughter and would be trampled in the truck. That can't happen. Shipper called and the babies below are in the trailerMom's and families have been loaded and are on their way to slaughterWe have to take these babies - they have no where else to go. Sadly, the beautiful Granny passed away last night due to the head injuries inflicted on her at the same time they destroyed her lip. Our hearts are broken but there is not even a moment to grieve, or even breathe. At least she is out of pain and was surrounded by love for her last few days. I can only imagine what the numbers will be by the time I actually get there to pick them up. For now, Mama Mel will be taking care of the babies and I need to call tonight and let them know if we can take Reba, (the starving/injured mare). Our vet bills were just a few dollars shy of $5,000 for this last rescue, (before I even got home). Sweet Sally, the donkey, needs more x-rays. Samantha, (the little mini) needs her eye either repaired or removed. The stallions need to be gelded and the kids with Cushings need more meds. The list goes on and on. I know the world has turned upside down, but my life didn't really change. I keep getting calls and as long as y'all keep helping and want to save these lives, I will keep on fighting. This is beyond exhausting, but if you look ...
