So long, sweet Kaya!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: Sweet Kaya, Our Hearts are Broken We've had a sad week at AAE with the loss of our sweet, sweet ol' girl, Kaya.  Many of you may remember she colicked last month, and her docs found a stone in her tummy.  Sadly, it reared it's ugly self again, and this past Tuesday morning, Kaya was not herself.  She hadn't eaten her dinner, and she hadn't pooped all night.  Not good!  We called the vet, and after exam, we took her to the clinic for hospitalization.  She was impacted again, and we were faced with the surgery question, again.  It's a heart-wrenching question when faced with the cost of surgery, her age, recovery, and all the other horses in our care.  Just as importantly, all of the volunteers and participants that love each and every horse in our care and the participants that share their lives, as well.  Needless to say, this is one special mare that has so kindly touched the lives of so many people. She gave so much to so many, and she had a very good prognosis for the stone removal surgery, so we were planning to ask all of her friends for help.  As we were preparing a special fundraiser for her surgery, the call came.  Kaya had a cough.  Not a good thing with consideration of surgery.  Sadly, the docs discovered she had a diaphragmatic hernia.  She had fluid in her chest, and some of her intestines were pushing into her thoracic cavity.  Sadly, this presented a much more complicated situation for our sweet girl, and we felt the best thing we could do is send her gently across the Rainbow Bridge. Kaya came to us February 25th, 2014, four years and two days before she left ...

Another Angel in Heaven – but 5 MORE lives saved. A question to answer!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: BABY SEASON IS HERE! With a shattered heart I bring you Tana's update. As we were so far away, (in NV), when I got the call, and Tana had been found abandoned by the side of the road in Yakima, WA, I knew that she would be needing IV fluids if she was to have a chance to survive, and she needed them right away, well before I would get there. So we called the vet and she went out to Mel's to assess the baby, give fluids, check her leg and do her Coggins if all went well. Unfortunately the news was beyond grim. The below photo shows the broken bones in her leg. Even with an unlimited budget, this would have had nearly zero chance and it would have put Tana through more horrific and unconscionable pain. As I looked at her x-ray, I could only think of how much my broken femur still hurts. I could not put her through more pain. So sadly, we made the decision that was right for her; we set her free from this world of horrible pain that she lived in. So now we have a very hefty vet bill, as well as the cost of her burial and our trip to WA. HOWEVER, we were able to SAVE FIVE (5) more horses from a horrible fate at the slaughter plant. The cost for the two vet visits, (one for Coggins on the Fabulous Five, and one for Tana), as well as the cost to bail these kids and get them vetted is going to be close to $3500? not including fuel. NOW COMES THE KICKER! Just hours ago I received a call about a newborn(orphan???). Matt and I will be picking up the ...

911 – NEWBORN INJURED FOAL NEEDS OUR HELP NOW! – Chilly Pepper is on the way!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: BABY SEASON IS HERE! CAN YOU HELP SAVE MY LIFE??? TANA'S life is at stake. She was found injured and alone on the side of the road! I just received the call for a 3-4 day old orphaned baby mustang found on the side of the road. The folks were going to put it down as there is an injury to the back leg, but decided to give it every chance and called for help. In the meantime they gave it some colostrum and said it is drinking. We want to thank them for feeding the baby and bringing it in out of the weather. So Matt and I are in the process of heading up to Yakima momentarily. We need your help now please, if you can. We have tried to keep the fundraising to a minimum, but now that baby season is here we are going to need your help now more than ever. Due to my broken leg we are sitting on more horses than we normally would be, as I have been unable to train and get them ready for adoption. So our hay bill is $1000 every 3 weeks or so. We so appreciate everyone who has helped save so many lives in the past and are hoping and praying that y'all are going to be with us again this year. Babies are expensive, but when God puts them in front of us, well we need to step up no matter what. We don't know why this baby was left behind, whether it is because it is injured, or it could also have other issues. However, all we can do is get the baby and start critical care immediately. So please help us give this little one a ...

SYALER eNewsletter

The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue: February 9, 2017 Ears the news... I don't know about you folks but January presented enough challenges to do me just fine for the rest of the winter. I am enjoying looking out at the falling snow as I write this, but enough already with the ice and subzero temperatures. It's wonderful having the light changing and lasting longer day by day. I need the encouragement from Mother Nature! We have a lot to look forward to at Save Your Ass...the birth of Zelda's foal for one thing. No, she has still not had it! We have no idea of when she was bred, but to the best of our knowledge her baby "should" come this month. I sleep with my iPad under my pillow so every time she moves the barn camera sends me a message letting me know. No, I haven't been getting much sleep for the last month or so, but hopefully I will be aware of the foaling when the time does finally come.  We are still accepting name suggestions in our "Help Zelda Name Her Foal!!" contest... For each $5. donation to SYA, please make a name suggestion. We will keep the boy's names and gril's names separate and after birth Zelda will pull an entry from whichever collection is appropriate. If your name suggestion is chosen, Zelda will be sending you a plush "Borden" from our merchandise herd. If you choose to make your donation by check, please note your name suggestion in the memo field and mail the check to: Ann Firestone Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue Broomtail Farm 23 Saw Mill Road South Acworth, NH 03607 If you choose to make your donation by PayPal, use our donate button below, and ...
