The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: With a broken heart, we had to let Dandelion go. In the midst of trying to deal with so much loss, another emergency is upon us. Another urgent 911 call. An older, WILD & PREGNANT MUSTANG is in the kill pen, and if we don't get her, she has no other option. She and her unborn baby do not deserve to ship to slaughter. We need to save her now! Her time has run out and we need to raise funds for vetting, transport, etc. so we can commit to saving her life. If we do not step up, this girl has no where to go. At this point I have not seen her, but that is not important. God put her in front of us and we need to save both of their lives. Time is of the essence and her clock is running out. _As usual, there is never time to grieve the loss of our beautiful babies. sadly, we found out that Dandelion was born with a deadly birth defect. _ Although our beautiful Dandelion was all healed up from her coyote attack and ready to head out to her "new Moms", she had a birth defect that ultimately was a death sentence. Thankfully she did not die a horrible death out on the range, but was surrounded by those she loved and her "mama"., As always, the phone rings and we received another 911. This mare and her unborn baby now have a chance, and that is YOU!. We need a "happy". PLEASE HELP US SAVE THIS MOM AND BABY NOW! I am honestly exhausted and my heart is in a million pieces. But that does not give me an excuse to not step up and try and save this Mama and unborn ...

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Matt is warming up the truck and we are heading to an emergency vet visit at Comstock with Dandelion. Last night she choked on her grain. We rushed her to our Doc and he cleared the choke. She was resting quietly but is now showing signs that she aspirated the feed into her lungs. Her condition is critical at best. We were quoted approximately $1000 to get her scoped, radiographs etc. She has fought so hard to overcome her wounds from the Coyote attack and was thriving. Her enthusiasm and zest for life is what caused her to eat so fast. PLEASE HELP US HELP HER! We are already $4000 in the hole from the last vet bills. That came out of our hay funds. She deserves this chance after fighting so hard and overcoming her injuries. Zimmerman Veterinary 1 775-623-0981 and let them know it is for "Palomino - Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang".

Save Your Ass Rescue Newletter

The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue: What Does It Take to Save Your Ass? It seems as though the hot topic on donkey groups in social media is: “What do I feed my donkey?” We get asked about donkey nutrition a lot so we would like to share a little bit about what it takes to rehab donkeys and mules in need from a rescue’s perspective. As a rule donkeys are very easy keepers because they are browsers, which means they require walking long distances for very little food. A lot of donkeys in the US are overfed, which is just as negligent if not more so than a donkey coming to us underweight. There are a large number of risks when a donkey is overweight; their liver or kidneys could fail, they could become hyperlipemic, they could founder, and/or get laminitis. It is more natural for a donkey to be thin than it is for a donkey, who is desert species, to be fat. Over the years we have had to euthanize animals due to complications from obesity. If you are reading this and thinking “oh my gosh my donkey is a chunky monkey!” don’t panic, you’re not a terrible donkey owner! We are strong believers in meeting people where they are. We can’t be upset with people who simply do not know. That’s why we are writing this and constantly trying to educate people on proper donkey welfare. If you would like more info on getting your donkey to a healthy weight, visit https://www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk/what-we-do/knowledge-and-advice/for-owners/feeding-your-donkeys The Donkey Sanctuary is great resource for donkey care! We do all the major medical and behavioral procedures for the donkeys and mules that come in so when they get adopted they have the best possible start in their new ...

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Quick update and a great big THANK YOU to everyone who helped us with Dandelion and to get this big guy home. Dandelion is doing very well and already has an amazing couple who will be adopting her. Meet TEXAS TRIUMPH. This beautiful 4 year old was slated for slaughter. When I got the call I had to step up. Sadly, (as is pretty much the norm with most of the horses we rescue) he has a life threatening condition, caused most likely by lack of care. When I went to check on him after he arrived I saw his feed and water pouring back out his nose. Much like the 2 year old TB we rescued, he could not swallow. After nearly $3000 in vet bills for him alone, (much of that cost being for the medicine for his horrific ulcers and the infection he is fighting), we are limping along, hour by hour. His preliminary diagnosis is Esophageal Stricture, which means his Esophagus is full of scarring which is making it extremely difficult for him to eat or drink. At this point he is on liquid mash, and although he still has food and water coming back out his nose, he has been getting some down. (We had some really great poop, which means food & water are actually getting to his stomach and everything is working well inside.) He is not in pain as far as the feed and water, but had horrible ulcers. I believe the meds are working as far as the ulcers, but his prognosis is fragile at best. He has had days where he runs and plays, and then yesterday he didn't eat much. He is thriving as far as getting love and attention, and all he wants to do ...

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: ABOVE - How beautiful and precious am I? Please help Mom save me in honor of my brother Christmas!! I begin this update with heartbreaking news for those of you who haven't heard, I had to say goodbye to Baby Christmas. He fought so long and hard, and was improving so much. Sadly we found out that the infection was so bad for so long that it damaged the inside of his neck beyond repair. His wounds were so severe there was simply no way to save him. I loved that little boy beyond measure, and he loved his Mom. Thankfully he passed peacefully, surrounded by love after days of eating his munchies and hangin' out with Mom. THANK YOU to everyone who stepped up for this beautiful soul. NOW MEET DANDELION. She shared the same daddy as Christmas, a gorgeous stallion named Black Jack.. So it's almost like we still have part of him. Now when the tears stream down my face from the agony of losing Christmas, my beautiful Dandelion seems to hug me. She was also attacked by most likely the same predator as her brother. She has horribly infected wounds that need flushed and cleaned several times a day, as well as needing 4 injections a day. We are praying once again that we get a miracle. Thankfully her prognosis, although a bit guarded, is extremely more positive than Baby Christmas' was. Of course we are still paying off vet bills for Christmas and Skipper, as well as 2 of the Sad 7 etc. etc. THANK YOU to my angels who sent payment directly to our account at the vet, or donations to us directly. You are amazing and so appreciated. It's time to stock up the barn with hay for the winter. We are currently in the middle of ...
