Land & Life Challenge and Severly Injured Baby Coming
This is an update from Chilly Pepper-Miracle Mustang Rescue.
The “Land & Life Support Challenge” is going very well. We are over half way there and have received donations of all sizes towards this amazing goal. We are so appreciative as we are going through over $1000 per week with Foal Lac Pellets, grain etc., not to mention hay. We still need a little over $2,000 so we can achieve success. SO PLEASE LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
So THANK YOU!!! to all the folks who have stepped up to help us accomplish this. We have received some amazing donations and are so grateful for each and every dollar. Again, I apologize for the slow “thank you’s”. We have literally been working every day ’til nearly dark as we try to achieve the best set up possible here.
Together, since we came here in June, and THIS WAS POSSIBLE ONLY BECAUSE OF Y’ALL, we have saved the lives of 25 babies and 12 adult horses. You guys are amazing. We are currently sitting at 2 babies in Shingletown, 11 here and two more arriving Friday. So every time we adopt some out, more come in.
It is overwhelming, but as long as we have the funds, we will continue to do everything we can. So again, Thank You! – because you have saved all these lives in the last 2 months.
Unfortunately, the round ups are continuing and Matt is on his way to pick up more babies. The foal above is in very poor shape, and was injured quite badly. She has a severe head injury and her eye is swelled shut. Her other eye is cloudy and she seems to have extremely limited eyesight.
(No matter how hard folks try and how careful they are, there is always a chance that a wild horse can be injured when “sorting” occurs. Folks see them standing calmly and can often forget that when they are scared, they can panic and easily hurt themselves. Unfortunately this little girl did panic and we are going to make sure she gets the best care possible.)
So in addition to the normal costs to pick up these babies, we have already incurred vet bills for the injured foal. We are praying she will have full vision, but no matter what we will figure out what she needs.
So please help us keep on saving lives. Together we have accomplished major things for these horses and instead of being slaughtered and dying a horrific death, they are munching away under clear blue skies.
GREAT NEWS – The 65 Wild Horses and 7 babies born to that group have ALL been placed. Matt is delivering the last load today as I write this. All those horses saved from slaughter and no longer our responsibility to feed and pay board on. This has been a long time coming. CONGRATULATIONS!to everyone who helped get this done.
We are working on finding homes for the horses we have now, and still need help feeding, providing veterinary care and picking up the new babies.
