CAN WE SAVE ARTIE? 48 HOURS TO SAY YES OR NO!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Another call - another life to save. Artie needs our help and he needs it now. Artie is a Thoroughbred - Percheron cross. Sounds like he could be a big boy. Artie has to be off the property immediately, and Animal Control is waiting in the wings. His owner cannot take him with her. She loves him dearly, but he needs special help right now. I believe he is approximately 11 years old? He is still a stallion and has been brutally traumatized, leaving him in a state where no one has been able to handle him. Dogs killed his pasture mates and there has been more trauma from nearby folks. He can not be haltered at this time, and Animal Control has indicated it is "now or never" from what I understand. He needs his hoofers trimmed badly, and none of the local farriers are willing to work with him anymore. As they are unable to halter him, he can not be handled or taken to a vet for sedation. Being a stallion that age, and not being afraid or respectful like a wild horse would be, he has the potential to be extremely dangerous if he is not handled carefully. He loves his mama, but sadly through no fault of her own, she cannot provide what he needs. This rescue will be expensive when you add up fuel, lodging, and everything else that goes along with this kind of rescue. As usual, we are willing to step up and do everything we can to save his life. It is going to be roughly 1600 miles driving in the middle of all of our other deliveries, and that is going to cost quite a bit not to mention special vetting, sedation, getting ...

PAUITE BABIES SAVED SWEETHEART AND STAR FIRE NEED YOUR HELP! RIP MY BEAUTIFUL BLACK BANDIT :(

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: YOU DID IT!! We rescued ALL 32 babies thanks to your love and support. Matt and I picked up 24 babies and brought them back to Chilly Pepper in Golconda. A friend of ours helped out by placing 8 in California, and babies are heading out to many different places. As always, we have incurred all the costs, so THANK YOU FOR SAVING THESE LIVES! UPDATE - STAR FIRE & SWEETHEART. Both these babies are in extremely critical condition. Poor Star Fire tried her best to crash this morning. She was not getting up and her body temperature was dangerously low. Thankfully, we were able to help her bounce back. But that is what these babies do. They are like roller coasters, and it is literally hour by hour at this point. So please say your prayers and if you can, help us provide the special care and feed that they need. Little things like running the heat lamps, tank heaters etc. can add a strain on the budget. We had the vet here two days ago getting the Pauite babies ready to travel. They really like to eat, and we are going through about $3800 a month for hay alone, taking care of the horses here. So we really appreciate any help any one wants to give to keep these little bellies full. Getting the Coggins (blood tests required for Health Certificates so horses can be adopted and travel) and helping Black Bandit go home to his Mama and the Angels also cost close to $1400. We have a lot of folks willing to help take on some of these babies, and of course 99% are Out of State, _but it is going to cost quite a bit to transport them. However, ...

Forever In Our Hearts, Beau

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: Ol' Beau, Forever in Our Hearts! Oh, Ol' Beau, you'll be forever in our hearts!  Yesterday, we helped Beau across the Rainbow Bridge after he experienced a very painful colic.  Pain meds were only able to fend of pain for a short period; fortunately, long enough that he was examined and transported to LBEMC for further evaluation.  He was diagnosed with a strangulating intestine, likely from a fatty tumor (lipoma) that wrapped around part of his intestine causing a blockage and cutting off the blood supply. Sadly, due to the pain, surgery was the only option, but it was not a good option for several reasons (e.g. his age, arthritic hips, blood results, stress, etc.).  It is always hard to make "that" decision; but it seems it was the best choice under the circumstances. Our ol' guy is no longer in pain, running free... Beau was just shy of his 29th birthday, a beautiful Arab and Arab through and through.He loved attention, but really seemed to expect attention (in a funny way).  Love on him all you want, but don't expect any in return, LOL.  He wasn't the affectionate type, usually.  On occasion, he'd slip and forget life was all about him.  Ok, that's all funny stuff.  With the exception of anxious moments when his neighboring buddy was moved, Beau was one of the more dependable, go to horses around here.  He'd stand quietly when attended to.  He enjoyed being loved on.  That was gift enough, knowing you'd made his day a better one.  Knowing he'd enjoyed your offerings....a brush and hoof pick or just a "Hi Beau". I know I will miss just that, being able to send him a "Hi Beau-Beau" across the arena. Though we have so many happy horses ...

14 Hours to Commit to Saving the 32 PAIUTE BABIES from last weeks Round Up

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Another call, another deadline. I was given until 6 am tomorrow morning to commit to a package deal OF ALL THE BABIES left from the “Stolen Horse Roundup” that happened last week . We have a chance to save ALL 32 babies. I have to commit to purchasing the entire bunch by morning, but will have until Monday to come up with the funds. We are in WA in the middle of another rescue, but are willing to step up, as always. We cannot begin to do this on our own. We need to raise close to $20,000. We need to purchase them, have enough funds to ensure we can feed and care for them until they are adopted, as well as transport them. It is a big responsibility to take on this many kids. So I have to know we can afford to feed them, If we don’t raise enough to save them all, we will pray that we have a chance to save some of them, and will save as many as we can afford to. For everyone who’s heart has been crushed by this illegal roundup, here is YOUR CHANCE TO ACTUALLY HELP, Step up and make a REAL DIFFERENCE. Preserve what is left of your heritage, YOUR HORSES, We need help with funding, and ALL of these babies need a home. Bring them back to what they know! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KEEP HELPING US SAVE MORE LIVES, YOU CAN GO TO: You can go to gofundmel You can go to Paypal if you would like to help these horses.                                                         ...

ON SITE WITH THE 3 MUSKETEERS 2 IN LIFE THREATENING CONDITION CAN YOU HELP US SAVE THEIR LIVES?

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: IN THE NICK OF TIME? OR ARE WE TOO LATE? 3 LIVES AT STAKE. We have been working behind the scenes to rescue these 3 babies for some time. I received a phone call about some kids who needed help asap. As always, it was a life and death situation and many of the moms were already deceased. Today, only a few hours ago, we finally were able to pick up the THREE MUSKETEERS. These are some of the most precious babies I have ever seen, and we are currently on our way to WSU to see if we can save their lives Although we LOVE our local vet, one of the folks who is helping with this rescue has family/friends at WSU and requested we take the kids there this time, as there is a good chance that Honey Bear may need hospitalization.. Honey Bear has a horrific injury to her leg, and although we started to take care of it on our own as is necessary so many times, this is extremely life threatening as it appears that the bone may be infected. She has had this injury for months and never received any care or antibiotics, and it may cost her her life. PLEASE help the Three Musketeers, Honey Bear, Star Fire and Sweetheart. They have been through heck, and Honey Bear, who has the most severe injury, was often seen laying beside her dead mother. It was a heartbreaking situation, kind of like South Dakota, but what is important now is that we concentrate all our energy on saving these babies. Star Fire was also starved for months and we are not sure if too much damage has been done or not. THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW! We are ...
