Mosquito Fire Evacuation Warning & Update on Ell

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc Mosquito Fire - Evacuation Warning for AAE We wanted to give everyone an update on our situation with the Mosquito Fire. We would much rather be in a position to support our community right now, but instead, AAE's Pilot Hill property is in the outer (southwesterly) edge of the evacuation warning area. When Cool went into Evacuation Warning late Thursday, that was our cue to go.  Thanks to tremendous support from our volunteers and the community, we were able to quickly mobilize equipment, feed, and supplies to set-up an evacuation location at our old home in El Dorado Hills. We wrapped up about 2a Friday after setting up and transporting 18 horses. On Friday, we moved another 14 horses, along with some additional equipment and supplies. Our three minis are with our volunteer mini mom. We have 18 mustangs, three cows, two pigs, two cats, and our Speedy remaining in Pilot Hill. All are in confined areas and ready to go if there's any shift in the fire in our direction. We are a little bit below the blue dot in the photo above, about 13 miles from the edge of the fire and feel relatively safe, we made the decision to start moving horses on Thursday because of the time it would take to relocate 50+ animals in the event of a mandatory evacuation. We'd rather be safe than sorry! The current challenge is staffing care shifts at two locations. If any of our experienced volunteers are able to help with feed and care of the horses, either at Pilot Hill or El Dorado Hills, we would appreciate the extra help. Please sign up here (VolunteerLocal). If you do not have substantial experience volunteering with AAE yet or you have been out of the loop ...

Ell’s Surgery Is Today!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. Today is Ell's surgery day. We have lab results, too, which showed testosterone and anti-mullerian hormone levels were consistent with the presence of functional testicular tissue. Sadly, this means he'll likely need another surgery to remove a "hidden" testicle. Though he doesn't have a penis (as far as we know now), considering a future adoption, this will help prevent stud-like behavior as he matures. Please keep him in your thoughts today, and send some prayers his way for a successful procedure and recovery. We will share photos and updates on his progress on a special Ell webpage! (You can also read more about his story there, too.) If you are able, please consider making a donation to help with Ell's surgery and post-surgery care costs. We have haven't quite hit the halfway point of his fundraising goal yet.  Please help if you can. Donate to help Ell! Thank you to everyone who has donated already on Ell's behalf. We are grateful for your love, kindness, and compassion for Ell. With Your Support, Make More Second Chances Like These ...

Chilly Pepper – MOM & BABY – CAN WE SAVE THEM? Mercedes Needs Your Help Now! 15 More saved and Smokey doing well!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: If you received an email similar to this, I apologize. I have a glitch and only some information was update. ANOTHER CALL in the middle of my update...... Can we save Mama & Baby? YOU DID IT - We saved 15 more lives! But now I need to finish getting them vetted, gelded and ready for their new homes, as well as feed them. As you can clearly see, Mercedes needs to be monitored from now until her birthing takes place. Please notice how huge Mercedes is. Doc is extremely happy with how healthy she is overall, but we need help asap to make sure she stays happy and well. Chilly Pepper was invited to the Cowboy Expo in Fallon, Nevada to share our Rescue and spread awareness of the plight of so many of our beloved horses. I committed to going months ago, so now I cannot break my promise. All I want to do is stay with Mercedes until I know the baby/babies are born and all are happy and healthy, but you are only as good as your word and I committed to going. MERCEDES is a small horse, and could possibly be carrying a very large foal or twins. She needs to go to Goldendale Veterinary Clinic while I am gone. I cannot risk her being here while I am gone if she goes into labor and has twins or the baby is too large. We have been through so much and the right thing for her is to be at the Vet's until I get back. Board itself is not a huge expense, but our current vet bill is $4500+ It has to be paid down substantially by this weekend for me to drop her off. The alternative ...

An ooops, and a PS.

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. Thank you for all of the concerned messages about the bad link for Ell.  It's so nice to know so many people want to help!! Here is a new link you can use! We are so grateful for everyone's support so far! Donate for Ell! Don't forgot to leave a note in the special instructions box that your gift is for Ell! About Ell: Ell is a young, captive bred/born mustang, only about 18 months old. Ell has an entire life ahead. With everyone's help, we can make sure Ell has the best chance at a pain free life. Initial surgery and care costs (e.g. hospitalization, diagnostics, meds, vaccines, exams, etc.) are in the $2500 to $3000 range, barring any complications. If another surgery is needed, we'll keep you updated and revisit funding, if necessary.  Surgery is scheduled September 6, 2022, after Ell finishes a round of antibiotics.  Can you help Ell? This sweet lil' mustang deserves it!   There are so many horses in need right now, if we can all do a little to help the ones we can, together, we will all be able to make a difference for that many more. Meet Our Newest Herd Member-in-Need! Ellie recently arrived at AAE after a local family reached out for help. They "rescued" young Ell when they got "the ugly colt" for free from a backyard breeder. They were told he needed "a little" cosmetic surgery. They felt really bad for the skinny little guy and wanted to get him out of there. Sadly, the breeder didn't take responsibility for the "little" issue and passed it on to the unsuspecting family. They really wanted to help. After meeting with two different vets right away and trying to help ...

Say hello to young Ell!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. Meet Our Newest Herd Member-in-Need! Ellie recently arrived at AAE after a local family reached out for help. They "rescued" young Ell when they got "the ugly colt" for free from a backyard breeder. They were told he needed "a little" cosmetic surgery. They felt really bad for the skinny little guy and wanted to get him out of there. Sadly, the breeder didn't take responsibility for the "little" issue and passed it on to the unsuspecting family. They really wanted to help. After meeting with two different vets right away and trying to help Ell, they realized this was more than a "little" surgery. There was concern Ell might be a hermaphrodite, and it could be more complicated than cosmetic. After several months of trying to meet Ell's needs, they realized it was more than they could manage. They wanted the best chance for Ell and reached out to AAE for help. You see, Ell was born with a congenital abnormality - Ell has a sheath, but it appears he doesn't have a penis (though, there's a chance it's stuck inside him or it's not where it belongs). For now, we assume Ell is a colt, but missing his part. We're waiting for updated blood results to check testosterone levels. Could there be hidden testicles, too? Ell is able to pass urine, but big surprise, without a penis, Ell can't urinate normally. Urine dribbles from his sheath almost continuously. Sadly, the urine scalds Ell's skin around his sheath, down his belly, and down his legs. Poor little thing, it's so painful. Though we do what we can to minimize the scalding, it's painful being treated, too. Ell needs surgery to remove some of his sheath ...
