Is Amigo One of Your Favorites!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: As we're settling into our new home in Pilot Hill, it seems the perfect time to reflect on some of the special horses you have helped over the years. None is more special than our elderman, Amigo. At 33, he is the grand dad of all the horses enjoying their new views in Pilot Hill. AMIGO Amigo came to AAE with two of his pals in mid-January 2018 from a neglect situation. He weighed-in about 850 pounds, and we were told he was 29. As thin as he looks in photos, he was much thinner. His coat was thick with dead like an old shag rug that tried to hide his bony frame. He ...

Chilly Pepper – Great Grandma “Norma” – Will you Help her?

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Another emergency in the middle of "vetting the 46". I have been asked to give "GG Norma", a chance. At the very least she deserves the best feed, love and care until she crosses over. However, even though two vet's looked at her and didn't give her much hope, she is telling a different story. Her eyes are bright and she is alert and curious and says "PLEASE don't quit on me!" Will you help me give her the best love and care for whatever time she has left? We are due for a Miracle, and I'm hoping you will help me give her a chance. We have spent over $1400 on fuel ...

Chilly Pepper – URGENT 911 – 46 Lives at Stake – Can we turn heartbreak into inspiration and help the 46?

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: My heart is shattered as I write this. Although he fought valiantly and beat all the odds, our beautiful Norman is running free in heaven with his Mama. Sadly, Norman's lungs were permanently damaged and he let me know when it was time to go. He was having seizures and was so weak he couldn't always get up. His knees were buckling over and although his heart was pounding constantly and Doc said it sounded like he was trying to breathe through a straw, he was a happy, playful little boy. Doc and I both knew it was coming, but that doesn't lessen the devastation. She said he picked the right time. He was starting ...

Thank you, Volunteers, Gabby Who?, Big Day of Giving, and Boots & Bling, too

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: It's National Volunteer Week! It's time to shine a lil' light on all of AAE's volunteers. You make a difference for our horses every single day! Through rain, sleet, and snow, and through the heat you go! Day in and day out, you contribute more than you know. Thank YOU for all you do, YOU are making lives better, one horse at a time! We are adjusting to many the many changes a new home brings. Unfortunately, it’s not all rainbows and roses… we recently had a positive strangles case with one of our lil ponies, Minnie. She's been with us for quite some time (more than a year). We have ...

Chilly Pepper – QUICK UPDATE – Tessa and Norman still need your help!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Hi, Tessa is home safe. Thank you!! That was the easy part, "saving her from the slaughter truck" and transporting her to safety. However, now the real work and expenses begin. Tessa is in much worse shape than we thought. She needs to gain at least a few hundred pounds, will need vet care for her teeth and serious farrier care. Her feet are horrific and she barely has her front right hoof at all. Her coat is rough and she is sad and was extremely depressed. However, she and Honey Bandit seem to have fallen in love across the road. So now we are already seeing less depression. PTL! Hay prices are through the roof and it ...

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Meet "Tessa" Tessa is a special mare. She is in pretty rough shape as you can see, and her poor hoofers are horrible.
