Chilly Pepper – WILD FIRE UPDATE – JUSTICE FOR SPARKLES???? Chilly Pepper needs your help!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: This is a hard update for me to write. Although there is so much "good", the tears keep falling as I try to do this update. Thankfully, Wild Fire seems to be getting his wires connected in his little brain. He was crashing into the walls for a while, and continues to be twitchy and is still shaking his head a great deal. Most of this could hopefully be explained by the fact that his little brain had not fully developed. Since he was rejected, the reason can show up later, but for now he seems to be doing better all the time. JUSTICE FOR SPARKLES???? I received notification from the Animal Control Officer who is handling Sparkles' and Peanut's case. Isaac Knee is pleading guilty to 1 count of Cruelty in the 1st and 1 count in the 2nd with a lifetime ban on ownership or possession. I sat and cried when I got her message, my heart breaking once again. It's not enough for what he did to Sparkles. Yet I have to think that if he NEVER owns another animal, that maybe there is a little bit of justice???? Maybe she didn't die in vain. Yet my heart is still angry because there will never be enough justice for those who torture animals. She deserved so much better. https://www.tiktok.com/@chillypepper_mm/video/7156075581887499563?r=1&t=8bQAzVrNOO3 (This video says graphic, but it is simply pictures of her condition when I got her.) I am so grateful to the Officer who fought so hard to bring some justice for Sparkles. She is a hero in my book. We still need help with funds for Foal Lac Powder, Foal Lac Pellets, meds, wormer for the starvation cases, hay in NV and hay in WA, and of course our ever-bouncing vet bill. Thank you all of you ...

Diesel is his name!

This is an update from All About Equine Rescue. All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. DIESEL This cute little guys is Diesel. He came to AAE with two of his buddies way back in 2016. Of all of our adoptable horses, Diesel has been here the longest waiting for his person to arrive. He's about 10 now, and he's such a cute lil' guy. His situation is challenging as he has some baggage. First, some history. The trio was originally part of a herd in the Carson National Forest in New Mexico, and they were rounded up and moved around by the US Forest Service. Some of the gathered horses were adopted and a small group who weren’t adopted in NM were transported to Solvang, CA for a wild horse gentling program at Monty Roberts International Learning Center (MRILC). They group was rather sickly when they arrived. After the program and much improved, some of the horses were adopted but Diesel and his two buddies were not. The USFS considered their stay at MRILC their third adoption attempt and third strike. They found their way to AAE, instead of being listed on Craigslist for $25 (as was requested by the USFS). Diesel returned to MRILC in 2017 to participate in another program. Unfortunately, he became lame in the hind end, so his stay was cut short. He returned to AAE, and he was put on stall rest for a few weeks. Sadly, on his follow-up vet visit, Diesel was diagnosed with Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis or EPM. Diesel was treated, but the EPM caused irreparable damage, and he has residual neurologic deficits that make him unsafe as a riding horse. That said, he’s still a spunky yet kind young man. Sadly, he's still untrusting of humans, but he has quite the playful and ...

Chilly Pepper – BABY 911! – Orphan WILD FIRE is at the Emergency Vet Hospital RIGHT NOW! 2 MORE HORSES DUMPED! We need you now!!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Catcher called! IT'S GO TIME! I got the call for Our FIRST orphan of the season. He was found alone, and one of my contacts reached out. No one knew how long he was out there alone, but he is deydrated, needs a Plasma Transfusion, fluids, Selenium, Vitamin B Complex and will be receiving Foal Lac via stomach tube after his plasma transfusion is finished. His vet bill will most likely be over $1000 before I even take him home. Luckily Doc is amazing and agreed to admit him anyway, even though my balance is still over $3500. We need Foal Lac Powder, Foal Lac Pellets, Omolene 300, Baby Wipes , and all the normal baby supplies. The remaining 8 horses from the 20 starved are going through over $500 worth of mash a week. Trailer is ready, and truck is still in need of funds to finish the repairs. It's Definitely GO TIME! I am on call this weekend for 2 more, possibly starved, Dumped Horses as well. WILDFIRE is a TRUE ORPHAN, NOT one "ordered". The CATCHING SEASON HAS STILL NOT BEGUN, but Chilly Pepper is doing what we always do. We are working WITH the Yakima Nation and answering the call for help. PLEASE HELP WILDFIRE and the rest of the Chilly Pepper kiddos. Your support makes the magic happen. There are still no roundups at this time of year, but we need to be ready in the next month or so. I need that trailer and truck ready to go. Thank you for helping save so many lives! Rescue is so expensive, but so many of the cases God sends us are end of life and need to have their suffering ended. Thank you as always! Doc's number is 509-773-0369 if you want ...

Granger Needs A Home!

This is an update from All About Equine Rescue. All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. GRANGER Granger came to AAE in July 2022 after law enforcement's intervention with a neglect situation. He was malnourished, having to fight for food in a herd of eight other horses. Once at AAE, he was started on a refeeding program with soaked alfalfa pellets, and he received long overdue hoof, dental, and vet care, including vaccines, bloodwork, and a microchip. (He tested positive for Cushings and is on a daily medication he takes without issue.) Over the past several months, Granger's weight and overall health has improved substantially. Granger is an oldie, late 20's, maybe 30, but as long as you don't look at his teeth, you'd think he was much younger. He's a handsome guy, but tries to be a cranky old man. Once you call his bluff, he usually agrees and enjoys some attention. He's buddies with Elliott, and the two play like two young geldings, rearing, chasing, and bucking it up. Uncle Granger is pretty darn cute! All said, he's got a hitch. He can be defensive around food, like many starved horses can be. Early in his stay with AAE, he kicked at humans, defending his food. Unfortunately, he connected a couple times, but fortunately, no major injuries. He's learning to be more respectful with humans, and we haven't had any issues since. However, humans have also been more aware with him, reminding him humans are not an acceptable target. Once you understand this guy, he's pretty sweet. Granger is looking for his forever home. This old sweetheart was reportedly used on a ranch for trail rides in his previous life, but is now best suited as non-riding companion horse. That said, with appropriate evaluation, relearning, and rebuilding, he may ...

Happy Hearts from AAE!

This is an update from All About Equine Rescue. All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. BRODIE Brodie is a very handsome 2009 (est) Appy gelding. He arrived at AAE with pasture-mate, senior mare, Kyrie, in March 2021 when their owner was moving cross-country. The new home she arranged for them fell through at the last minute, and she reached out to AAE. Brodie lived with Kyrie in a large pasture, and he enjoyed following her lead, though he wasn't too sure he wanted to follow her into the trailer when it was time to leave, though he did. Once at AAE, his teeth and hoof care were updated, and he received vaccines, deworming, and microchip. This sweet guy was big and athletic, but he was like the cowardly lion. His confidence came from his ol' gal pal. If he wasn't with her, there was a bit of a crisis. He would get mighty anxious and nearly lose his mind. Over time, his confidence has grown, and he's evolving into a bit of a gentle giant. Brodie is a beauty as you can see. He's also a big sweetheart. He's got the looks, the body, and the brain is coming along. Before our move, Brodie spent time with a trainer (on his own) building his confidence and learning new things. Besides basic groundwork, he was introduced to a saddle. Though he looked mighty handsome, and he tried hard to understand and do what was being asked, it was really hard. He needed more confidence to carry a rider, so we gave him more time. Brodie lives comfortably in the middle of a herd of ten with no major issues. He's neither dominant nor a pushover. He can be pulled out of pasture without a meltdown now for handling, grooming, or work ...
