IT’S GO TIME – 5 BABIES IN THE FEEDLOT & MORE EXPECTED. MOMS SHIPPING TO SLAUGHTER. WE NEED HELP TO SAVE THESE BABIES!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis. WE ARE IN GO MODE! Sadly, we are heading into the busiest part of the year. We have 5 babies RIGHT NOW in the feedlot, and by the middle of the week there most likely will be more. We are also still on standby for the other trapper's foals. Understandably, (like every other rescue), our reserves have been depleted. We need to raise funds to go get these babies. We were on standby last weekend, and luckily the horses broke out of the trap. PTL! However, he has since set up another trap and is expecting to bring in the horses. (This is the trapper that brought in 70 babies in two days, a few years ago). PLEASE help IF YOU CAN! If you are not in a position to help financially, please say a prayer and share this with as many folks as you can. These lives are in danger and they still matter! Sadly, slaughter stops for no one and nothing. On a happy note, we had the first baby ever born at Chilly Pepper join the family. His name is Prince Tyler and he will be a major part of our Sunshine & Smiles program. I thought his pix (above) might bring a smile, even in these changing times. Below, Bruiser & LuLu together forever!! Ash & Tucker also went to their new home together! Great success for these 4 kids. YOU MADE IT POSSIBLE. THANK YOU! G 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 ...

Remembering Rusty (1986-2020)

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: Remembering Rusty Last week, we lost one of our most beloved AAE heroes.     Rusty has been such a beloved symbol of AAE for so long. He taught so many people about the kindness of horses, the greatness of horses, the mystery of horses, and the strength of horses. He held gently so many of our hearts, and some more than others. Rusty came to us way back in 2010 from his own hero, his amazing mom that was in the military reserves and facing deployment. She was also dealing with some financial challenges and wanted only the best for her special guy. She worried about his fate when she'd be gone for an extended time. AAE welcomed this lovely ol' guy with open arms. Rusty was 24.    Rusty had already experienced a full life. As best I recall 10 years later, he had started on the Arabian Horse racing circuit, then dabbled in various disciplines in the arena before moving on to "happy trails". When he first came to us, he participated in a small riding lesson program with one of our founding fosters. He transitioned to AAE where he became a fixture in our New Volunteer Orientation program and various Youth programs while waiting for his forever home.    After what we thought was going to be the perfect home passed on him, we realized how much he meant to AAE, and AAE was meant to be his forever.      Fortunately, Rusty lived a good life at AAE.  He had few problems, he was an easy-keeper, and his youthful and swanky spirit captured the hearts of many. Rusty put the exclamation mark at after "senior horses are so special"!      Rusty, Sparky, Finn, and LoneStar were a dream team.  ...

Countdown is on, Big Day of Giving is Coming!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: Your Donation Makes a Difference! We introduced Cody earlier this year, and look at him now. Cody is a 1999 Arabian gelding that came to AAE after long-time family health issues with his owner and the passing of his caretaker. When Cody arrived at AAE, he was very under weight and in much need of dental care. After intake, he was put on a pellet diet. All of his basic needs were updated including dental and farrier care, vaccines, dewormer and a new microchip. Cody enjoys people, loves grooming and attention. He has been getting a refresher with his ground manners, as he can be a bit pushy. He appears sound, and he enjoys working! He has been ridden lightly a handful of times, walk, trot, canter, but needs some conditioning and rebuilding before asking much more. He seems to know how to move off the leg, and seems to be generally calm, quiet, and easy. Cody is ready for his new home. He could be a fun restart project for an experienced person; he's not suitable for a beginner at this time. It is because of the support from our volunteer and donors that horses like Cody get a second chance. Your donations makes a difference! See Cody in Action Save the Date, May 7, 2020, for the Sacramento Region Community Foundation's Big Day of Giving! This year there are 615 nonprofit participating! We are excited to be a part of this community grown 24 hour giving challenge! This comes during a time of great uncertainty, especially for horses like Cody, and your support is more important than ever. Your donation will assure Cody and our other horses continue to receive the level of care they need. We understand many have been impacted by COVID-19, ...

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION AND YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT! HAPPY NEWS FOR BRUISER

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis. Thank you so much for your love and support. Your donations make it possible to keep on doing our work, even in the midst of the Pandemic. Sadly, (but understandably), as the Pandemic increases, folks doing rescue are all seeing their budgets decreasing. So we want to send out an extra special THANK YOU to you for helping us keep saving lives. Sadly, the slaughter trucks have not missed a beat, and are still continuing to roll. BRUISER UPDATE! PTL!! Our beautiful little boy had something in that beautiful head click. I think his wires all came together. He is now drinking his milk without issue. I no longer have to give him 2 shots a day, and he is rocking his little world. Obviously he could still crash, but it appears to be much less likely than before - woohooo!!! THANK YOU FROM BRUISER - for hanging in there and never giving up! Sending prayers for all of y'all out there. We also have great news about the little baby we had at the feedlot. Little Lona was transferred to Mama Mel's, and then picked up by Bev Boshart. She is one of our amazing Chilly Pepper Family, and her rescue has taken 2 foals last year and hooked them up with a Mama and she took on the one we just rescued. Yes, she did it again. Lona now has her own horsey Mama. We are so grateful to Bev for all she does. It's Teamwork that makes the Dream work! Please stay safe out there and keep us in your prayers. Rescue never stops. Even though the funding has slowed down, we have not. So THANK YOU AGAIN ...

BRUISER UPDATE – RE EMERGENCY VET VISIT

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis. UPDATE - WE RECEIVED GOOD NEWS!!! His upper airways were compromised and that is why he was having trouble breathing. Thankfully they are clear now and although he continues to have issues, it appears most of it is staying out of his lungs. He may need scoped if these issues continue, and he is definitely not out of the woods, but we are not losing him this morning. Both Docs said go back to the bottle. It was terrifying listening to him gurgle and choke this morning. His little nostrils are too small to use their scope, so we are heading home, praising God that although he sounded like Dandelion, he has a real chance to get through this. Bruiser is crashing. It's 3 a.m. and I can hear him struggling to breathe. He has fought so hard to be here, and we finally got his blood test coming back close to normal. It was a big improvement, but he was still having issues. Bruiser is having trouble when he drinks his milk. We always take them off the bottle asap, and many times they never even see a bottle. However, this is when Bruiser's troubles started. He was "off", or "special" if you will, when we got him. His band left him alone to die. It is obvious there were multiple reasons for Mama to leave him. In the wild, if a baby is sick or injured, the stallion or others in the band will often kill it, or they just leave it behind. It is harsh, but is is survival and they do not want predators attracted. He was not a "dummy" foal, but his ...

3 A.M – BRUISER IS CRASHING – HE NEEDS HELP ONCE MORE – WE ARE HEADING TO THE EMERGENCY VET

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis.

He was not a "dummy" foal, but his brain was not fully wired yet. He has been improving, but this morning I can hear the pneumonia. He has been on antibiotics and Doc has tried numerous ones to help him, but this is a critical situation at this point. I am not sure if Comstock can save him or not, (they have a hospital on sight). It is so hard, because this is not a baby that has been depressed or lays around moping. He is feisty and runs and plays, but he is crashing right now. It is definitely NOT in the budget, but I have to try and give him one last chance. PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN! There is so much heartache out there. I am hoping ...
