Latest Updates from Chilly Pepper Miracle Mustang Rescue
Hi Folks, Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.
A quick summary of what is happening with the wild ones and some of our current expenses are as follows:
We moved the 18 horses to the facility we have been working on. PTL everyone safe and sound.
Fuel costs for this move $ 125.00 our truck
Emergency truck repairs $ 575.00 rescue truck
Fuel Costs truck (panels) $ 97.00
Fuel Addt’l Truck & trailer $ 97.00
Fuel 3rd Truck & Trailer $ 97.00
Additional manpower $ 200.00
Approximate costs to set up pens, round up, separate and safely move 18 horses to new location. $ 1191.00
(7 of the folks involved (including us) donated all their time and effort and as usual, did not get paid a penny) Matt gave up two days on a job in NV to help us get this done, as weather was a huge factor and time had run out to move these horses.
Some really great news is that 6 babies will be going to new facility and home in CA.
Two of Shirley Allen’s and my Little Cicero and 3 of the babies from Waylon & Rojo’s band are heading out to a new home.
Three babies will be coming to our rescue which gives us a total of 5 of the wild ones at Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang. These babies are untouched and will be gentled and halter trained so they can find their forever homes. The following are the expected fees for each baby.
$ 40.00 for coggins test
$ 45.00 for shots (5-way and West Nile)
$ 5.00 for wormer
$ 65.00 for Health Certs
$ 17.00 for Brand Inspections
Total Cost Per Baby to Prep for Transport $172.00
Cost for Prep 9 babies = $ 1,548.00
Plus Farm Call of $75.00
$1548.00 + $75 = $1623.00
This does not include gelding. There are at least 5, including Cowboy, little boys who need to be gelded prior to transport to their new homes.
This will be another $750 for gelding.
So the total for the horse to be moved, the babies prepped for transport and the little guys gelded is already up to approximately $ 3,564.00
This is not including any feed, or even the costs to transport the 6 babies going to Elk Grove, CA.
However, the good news is that these costs are not just a band aid, the 6 babies are going to a new home and we are no longer responsible for their feed and care.
We also have the possibility of 5-10 going to a wonderful sanctuary in Texas. We will be incurring roughly the same costs, although it will be a bit more as they are full size and will cost $17 each to be able to use the prison facilities to safely vet them, and do their hoofers etc.
Their is very little funds left in the coffer for these wild ones. We so appreciate the continued love and support folks are showing to help us get all of these beautiful creatures placed.
