Rescued Horses Update

The following is from All About Equine Rescue: RESCUE UPDATE Thanks for your patience. It's been a busy couple days. Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for your passion for and commitment to helping horses! Thank YOU for donating, sharing this story, and sending your love. We are always awed by the kindness of our community, but this time, we are absolutely overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity and support. Everyone came together and raised three times our initial goal for these horses. It's amazing, it's what we need with an undertaking like this, and you came through in a big way! Thank you so much for helping! On Wednesday, our plan was to pick-up three or four of the heavily pregnant mares and a mare & colt pair, then return in the near future for an additional five or six mares and weanlings. Well, as with anything horse-related it seems, once we arrived, there was another plan in the making. We left Pilot Hill early morning, and after a long day, we returned to AAE with the 11 original horses we committed to, plus an extra! In rescue work (and with horses), we've learned that we need to be prepared for the unexpected! Thanks to our community of horse-loving folks, our wonderful volunteers, and a few other caring individuals, we handled a quick pivot and got it done! We are eager to learn more about these girls and the two little guys as we move them forward to better health. After figuring out who was who, and who would ride where, the horses were sorted and loaded. Despite being so young, the littlest guy and his mom handled the journey well (as did the rest of the herd). Back at AAE in the dark, the group was unloaded into three ...

Urgent Need, Pregnant Mare Rescue in Progess

The following is from All About Equine Rescue: URGENT NEED AAE hasn't taken on a larger scale rescue in some time, but this one hits close to home and takes us back to our roots (mare/foal pairs and pregnant mares). It compels action! Think back to 2009, Sierra/Dayton/Clayton, Lacy/Sparky, Zuni/Fallon, Takela/Carson, and the many moms and babies that followed. Team AAE is currently en route to support a Nor Cal law enforcement agency with a large horse seizure. This group of horses was discovered abandoned on a large property several months ago and left to fend for themselves in high desert conditions. They were starving when discovered, and a few perished before law enforcement began providing feed and ultimately seizing 20+ animals. The horses were transported for care by the agency, and they have been housed at a public facility. Sadly, most law enforcement agencies don't typically have the resources to provide the care and monitoring needed for a seizure of this scale, and many simply cannot or will not. We are so grateful this agency acted! These horses need resources and an environment where they can be monitored and care provided continuously, and we're jumping into action to assure they get what they need. AAE is working with another rescue to support this law enforcement agency with this large group that includes mostly pregnant mares, a couple mature stallions, and several stud colts and fillies. AAE is focusing on the pregnant mares, a mare/foal pair, and fillies while the other rescue is focusing on the stallions/colts. AAE is on the road now to pick-up the heavily pregnant mares that are imminent to foal. We'll also bring back the mare/foal pair. Mom delivered a little colt (pictured above) in the last week, and they need to get to safety. We ...

Change A Life, Give Your Time!

The following is from All About Equine Rescue: We have a variety of somewhat urgent volunteer opportunities, and we really need your help! As the transition to Pilot Hill is finally winding down (but not complete), we need to rebuild our volunteer teams!! Anyone interested in supporting this noble cause to help horses-in-need, we need YOU! Keep reading to see some of our most important needs: HORSE CARE, OUTREACH, FUNDRAISING, AAE's USED TACK STORE, and GRANTS. Whether you have volunteered with us or not, we want you! We have an amazing volunteer community, and learning can be easy! Please read over these volunteer areas and see what interests you. HORSE CARE We are seeing a big spike in help requests from several nearby animal care agencies. We NEED to be able to support our law enforcement agencies that are one of the most important voices for our horses. We need more help at the barn to more effective and available to support. Volunteers care for the horses and other animals daily, rain or shine, at our facility in Pilot Hill, CA. There are two shifts: morning (8:30am to 12:30pm-ish) and afternoon (3pm to 6pm-ish). There are MANY ways to help with horse and animal care, such as feeding, medicating, treating, grooming, mucking, loving the horses, etc. If you are intimidated by horses, but LOVE them, you can help at the barn without having to work directly with a horse. There's something for everyone. Other tasks include, fence repairs, fix-it needs, prepping feed, organizing, cleaning, equipment repair, grounds-keeping, etc. With 61-acres, the upkeep is huge! For volunteers who want to help with care of the horses, there is a mandatory Basic Safety/New Volunteer Orientation where we introduce you to the basics of horse safety and the methods we use for handling horses at ...

Chilly Pepper – Another Emergency Call, – 911 for a BLM mare, that will make your blood boil…. We need to save her now!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: I received another emergency call. This one really infuriates me, and she is one of our own BLM wild mares, (Nevada peeps, or so I was told). I was asked about a week or so ago if I could help place a BLM Mare that needed a place to go. I was trying to see if we could make any progress in helping find that home, as I am not really set up to take her on right now. Then I got the "last call," a few hours ago. TODAY, we were told "IF SHE IS NOT OFF THE PROPERTY BY FRIDAY, SHE WILL GET A BULLET IN HER HEAD. Do you know why???? Because A NEW HORSE IS COMING AND NEEDS HER SPACE. So, if she is NOT off the property. they will SHOOT HER DEAD, simply because they couldn't do anything with her and they are bringing a "better horse" home to take her spot. Spice is a wild mustang, is "reactive", and "can't be trained", so their answer is to not feed her properly and shoot her. She has been alone for years, with zero contact with any other horses for years. It's time to end her suffering and bring her some joy. Please help us save her life. We need funds for transport, any vetting needed, feed, possibly for years, and the list goes on. We need to say yes, AND raise funds for a horse that may take a very long time to place. She deserves so much better than she has gotten! As usual, I am going on Faith, and am trusting God will provide for her and make this happen. I couldn't say no. Let's keep one more BLM mustang from ending up dead, like so many others. Dexter seemed like he was improving, but ...

Chilly Pepper – Meet Baby Teddy Bear, and update on Dexter & Grandpa George

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Meet Teddy Bear. Got a call from my friend who asked if I could take him, as he was alone with no Mama in sight, so of course I said yes. So far Teddy Bear seems to be pretty healthy, but foals can crash in a minute. Appreciate prayers for this youngster. (I did wonder how smart it was taking on an orphan, as I am still on crutches, but we are figuring it out, as always.) He is loving his milk and his goodies, and we have some good news regarding Dexter. Tiona is taking great care of Dexter, and treating and wrapping his abscesses daily, and he is walking much better. He is still a long way from out of the woods, but it is definitely good news. Grandpa George is settling in and seems to feel right at home. We appreciate all your help with these precious souls.
