HALFWAY THERE – 11 BABIES & “THE REASON” – CAN WE SAVE 2 MORE PREGNANT MARES WITH BABIES ON THEIR SIDE?
The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:
THE CALLS WON’T QUIT!
2 MORE VERY WILD, PREGNANT MARES WITH WEANLINGS ON THEIR SIDE!
I HAVE TO GIVE AN ANSWER RIGHT AWAY! These mares AND THEIR BABIES NEED YOU NOW!
We have nearly enough funds to get the ones you just saved, vetted and to start heading home. However, I cannot bear the thought of the mares and weanlings loading onto a slaughter truck, especially as they are well into their pregnancies. Let’s add them to the mix and save their lives! WILL YOU HELP SAVE THE MAMA’S TOO? THEY NEED BAIL, FUNDS FOR VETTING AND TRANSPORT, AND THEY PROBABLY WANT TO BE FED AND CARED FOR AS WELL!
I need more funds to responsibly save them!
I was able to get all the babies/weanlings ( ended up with 11). However, once again there was a special “REASON” I COULDN’T LEAVE.
Below is “REASON’s” story. She is the sad mare at the top of the page. Her neck is permanently scarred from being roped and she is so terrified of being hurt. She is halter trained and stands calmly, although she is sure you will smack her if you get close to her head. She is the most odd looking little girl at this point, but with proper food and exercise who knows what she will end up looking like. Regardless, she deserves a safe place to land.
Her story is below if you enjoy reading.
As we drove into the lot to pick up the babies, I noticed another truck and trailer pulling in. My stomach dropped as I looked into the eyes of a very scared young(?) horse. I am the last one allowed to save babies out of this yard, and it is because I am professional and keep my mouth shut. Although my heart was breaking and my stomach churning even more than usual, we loaded up the babies and headed out. As we were leaving, they unloaded “REASON”. She was very quiet as she was led to the next step on the journey towards her death. Her eyes were white with terror and she was trembling from head to toe.
The closer we got to camp, the more I couldn’t breathe. Her face and eyes stayed with me and as I started to cry I made the call. She may never be ridable, but she did not deserve the horrible end she was headed to. Her face already had bites from the other horses and she was a sad mess when we got to her. She has permanent roping scars on her neck and has every expectation that she is going to be hurt when you walk up. She is the sweetest thing I have ever seen and her little heart and soul are broken. But there is a light deep in the back of her eyes. I have to think she was one of the main “REASON’s” I could not go home. If we had not pulled in at that exact moment in time, her fate would have been very different.
Sometimes God makes me wait to see “why”, and other times he makes it so clear.
We also had Baby Boo, who only has 2 little, teeth top and bottom. She is going to a wonderful lady we work with. She, along with her vet, will give the mare 2 shots and Boo will have a real mommy. The other babies are just as precious.
YOUR MONEY ALWAYS GOES RIGHT WHERE IT SHOULD! THANK YOU FOR SAVING ALL OF THESE PRECIOUS LIVES!
I DO NEED MORE HELP if I am going to be able to afford the 2 pregnant mares and their babies. THANK YOU FROM ALL OF THEM!!!
PLEASE REMEMBER, I NEVER want anyone to donate more than they can comfortably afford. Those who have already donated, LIFTED PRAYERS, SHARED THE INFORMATION, I THANK YOU, AND BLESS YOUR BEAUTIFUL HEARTS!
The DESPERATE DOZEN thank you for you saving their lives. They are all adorable! # 12 is REASON, shown above. I don’t know why there were only 11 babies on arrival, their could have simply been a miscount as all the horses were bunched together. I am praying that is the reason.
