The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang Rescue.
I met a beautiful little princess yesterday. She has the face of an angel. She lit up my world with the most beautiful smile, all the while I was choking back the tears. (The minute the trailer pulled in the tears started, as I knew Big Girl was leaving. After that, the tears were simply from the joy she was bringing this little girl and the difference she will make in her life.)
Lee is one of the most courageous, wonderful, amazing little girls I have ever met, and her family is just as amazing. She suffered severe burns over her body in a devastating accident, but this little girl is kicking butt, and I absolutely love her. It was an honor and a gift to meet her.
Big Girl came in with no feet, in so much pain she would not even move to her feed, and with the info that if we hit her with a crop when we rode her we might be able to make her trot.
Today she has solid wonderful hoofers. They need a little trim and some shaping, but are good hard supportive feet. She is off her pain meds completely and moves around with ease. Thank You so much for all the love, support and prayers y’all sent. YOU made this happen :)
She now will be Lee’s Therapy Horse. Both of them are loving this and the future looks bright. Lee has to do extremely painful exercises and doing them with and on Big Girl will lessen that pain and it gives her a distraction while healing.
That was our day yesterday, and one of the reasons all this work is worth it…

Today, we spent just shy of $1000 ($970.00) just to get the last 5 horses we brought in laid down by the vet to get their poor lil hoofers done and health certs etc. Happily, all went well and they look like different horses.
Matt and I will be taking 7 horses to their new homes tomorrow and we are so grateful for the wonderful folks we are working with and that these equine are on their way to wonderful lives.
Unfortunately, (or maybe I should say fortunately) tomorrow is also the day we leave to drive back to South Dakota. It is wonderful that we will be able to pick up some more horses, but it is an extremely costly endeavor, especially with the vetting and the hoof work that will no doubt follow. But with colder weather coming we need to get as many as we can while we can. I know it doesn’t seem like we are saving many considering the large numbers, but last year we found homes for 100, a few at a time. So it does help in the long run.
All this is possible because of wonderful people working and networking together. No one could do this alone.
As of now, Karen still has control of the horses and the final verdict will come November 11. If the State takes control (if Karen cannot get the funding she needs to meet the court’s requirements) there could be over 800 horses that need placed before November 30th. This is a serious situation and anyone who might be interested in adopting or helping, please contact Karen at ISPMB to adopt.
We appreciate your love, prayers and any help you can give us. It takes about 20 hours each way and this one will be about 6 or 7 hours longer as we are delivering horses on the way. But while we have the opportunity to get horses safely home before the bad weather sets in, we need to do so immediately. If the weather hits it could mean many horses at risk of “auction” and we all know what that means.
As always, we appreciate the love and support and Thank You for being part of Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang, Equine Rescue & More!
