Let’s Deck the Stalls with Boughs of Plenty for 2018
23 Days Left, Meet Cowboy!

About a month after lil’ Rascal came to AAE, DreamCatcher contacted AAE about another orphaned foal. He was born around May 5, 2017, but wasn’t found until May 8 when his mom was suffering from colic. She had been hiding him.  Mom was a senior mare, and her colic was severe.  Sadly, she had to go to horsey heaven, so her lil guy traveled all the way to AAE so he’d have a big sister to grow up with and lots of people to watch over and love him.

He arrived late on May 8th.  This lil guy had slightly bowed legs and an ol’ soul. It was like looking at an old cowboy.  Alas, AAE dubbed him Cowboy. After evaluation by the vet, and a selenium injection, he was on his way to happily ever after.  He quickly picked up drinking milk replacer from a bucket, and in a blink, he stole everyone’s heart.

A New Way to Speak Up for Wild Horses

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

A Creative Way to Speak Up: Letters to the Editor

As Congress debates the future of wild horses and burros in behind-the-scenes negotiations, the key to saving these cherished animals remains expanding public awareness. One great way to spread the word about the threats facing mustangs and burros is by informing your friends and neighbors through letters to the editor. Members of Congress also monitor local newspapers to keep abreast of their constituents’ views and opinions. We have an awesome feature that makes sending your letters to the editor EASY and FAST! Try it out by clicking below!

Wild Horses: What’s Happening This Month in Congress

You may have heard that things in Washington are not working very well these days, and we’re here to report that—sadly, that’s exactly correct. Read more about this month on Capitol Hill and what’s in store for wild horses and burro by clicking below.

Conger Roundup Concludes; Research Moves Forward

The Conger roundup concluded on December 3, 2017 with a total of 111 wild horses captured. The roundup is part of an ongoing “population control research” study conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey and Colorado State University to assess the impacts of gelding (castrating) stallions on individual behavior and herd dynamics. Read below for more about the research project and a report from the roundup.

We can’t thank you enough

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Yesterday went better than we ever could have hoped.

Across the country, supporters like you stepped up on Giving Tuesday in a huge way. We blew through our initial $25,000 goal, and got almost 1,000 individual donations. And because of our matching gift, all of those gifts will go twice as far.

We can’t thank you enough for your support — and it couldn’t come at a more crucial time. Your donations will fuel these critical programs to save wild horses and burros:

Litigation: Right now, our legal team is defending wild horses in two federal appellate court cases. We’re fighting to uphold our lower court victories against a rancher lawsuit seeking roundup and slaughter of Utah wild horses and the BLM’s attempts to destroy the Saylor Creek wild horse population in Idaho bysurgically sterilizing every stallion and mare living there. 

On the ground: As you read this, the AWHC team is in the field to document a BLM helicopter roundup underway today in Utah. We’re showing the world what’s happening to our wild horses and burros in these remote regions of the West, and we’re generating the public support necessary to stop our government’s cruel treatment of these national icons.

Advocacy: Our wild horses deserve the best possible representation in the halls of Washington, and that’s just what our bipartisan legislation team is doing — making sure that policies affecting wild horses are evidence-based, humane, and strictly enforced.

We can’t do this work without you. Thank you again for your support this Giving Tuesday and every day.

Sincerely,

Suzanne & the AWHC Team

PS. Didn’t get a chance to give yesterday? You can still chip in today to defend wild horses.

Ears the news…

I apologize for the lack of newsletters. Between heading off to CA for the Donkey Welfare Symposium, coming home just long enough to unpack, wash my clothes and repack. I was then off to set up and (wo)man our booth at Equine Affaire along with great helpers Jennifer Molnar, Pamela Simmons, Joan Gemme, and Mike Dunham.  As always it was great to see many old friends who stop by every year to see what’s new for merchandise and to share stories of their donkey friends, many of whom were adopted from SYA! I also look forward to meeting new friends every year at this exhausting, but fun event.

Just before leaving I had a call about a very sad donkey named Sal. Sal’s person suffers from mental illness and had left his home for parts unknown leaving poor Sal behind. A kind neighbor called to see if Save Your Ass could help. Of course we were happy to take him in.  This poor fellow had not had his hooves trimmed in a very long time. They were sadly overgrown and misshapen.

Baby horse hogtied, separated from mother by BLM

1

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Giving Tuesday match: Give a gift of just $10 or more to protect wild horses by midnight on Tuesday and your donation will be DOUBLED.

Separated from his mother. Hog-tied. Penned. This just a glimpse of what happened to to Trey, a 2-month-old foal, during a horrific Bureau of Land Management roundup of wild horses in Utah. Fortunately, Trey made it out — but not all horses are so lucky.

These kinds of roundups occur routinely on our public lands. Wild horses are being harassed, abused, and even killed. But we’re making a difference: by documenting BLM activity, by saving individual horses, by advocating for humane policies like fertility control, and by fighting to stop the BLM’s plan to slaughter these innocent and iconic animals.

URGENT HELP NEEDED – ANOTHER 48 HOUR DEAD LINE – MORE BABIES – CAN WE SAVE THEM FROM SLAUGHTER ?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi all,

I am home from the hospital and desperately hoping that we can make this Holiday one to be thankful for. Another “48 hour deadline is here”.

We just got “the call”. _ As I write this, there are babies at risk of being loaded onto the slaughter truck tomorrow night if we do not step up and save them._ We need to let him know ASAP! if we will be there or if these babies die.

However, the last time we got a call for 6, it was 14 babies two hours later and by the time Matt did the pick up it was 22. So we need to be prepared for a much larger number. We are praying it won’t be more, but we have never, ever, not had “more” babies upon arrival in WA.Right now it is 4-5??

CHILLY PEPPER – MIRACLE MUSTANG – ONE broken leg, 3000 miles and 23 LIVES SAVED!!! by Y’all

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Please forgive me if this is poorly written. I am sitting in the hospital (actually after care at Renown Skilled Nursing). There are some pain meds involved, so hopefully you will have patience with any grammatical errors.

WOW – What an adventure. Matt and I were prepping to pick up the 14 babies y’all came through for. It was Sunday and we were maybe 10 minutes from pulling out of the driveway. I was in the office grabbing my purse when I took a step and “snap”. I had been on my crutches for about a week and my leg felt like it was going to snap every now and then. The last time it felt like this they had to add cadaver bone. I didn’t think it actually would break, but it did. Shown above you can see the initial hardware below the break.

So instead of heading out with both trucks and trailers, we sat waiting for the ambulance to come. We still had to pull the babies, but obviously I wasn’t going anywhere. We immediately called my neighbor Ammy Gorsuch and she and her hubby came over right away. She would immediately take on providing Hope and Gypsum’s milk and their care.

911 – 14 LIVES AT STAKE…… CAN WE SAVE THEM??? IT’S UP TO Y’ALL AGAIN….48 HOURS TO SAY YES OR NO….. 1

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Above are some of the babies from the last trip.

It’s Saturday, and we JUST NOW got a call from the shipper. We have 48 hours to be there to pick up a MINIMUM of 14 of this year’s babies.They will be older kids, but how do we say no, you need to ship them????

So it is going to be up to y’all if, and how many, we can save. The last group was underfunded by about $2000, but luckily we received a grant from Giant Steps Foundation who covered the balance still owed for that rescue.

They also gave us a grant for the additional nursery building we so desperately need, our wild horse chute and to help with hay. THANK YOU & GOD BLESS YOU, GIANT STEPS FOUNDATION. However, these funds can ONLY be used for what they are specified for, and they are needed explicitly for those items.

TONIGHT’S EMERGENCY CALL – 24 Hours to SAVE 11 ORPHAN BABIES & 2 Adults from SLAUGHTER

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THE EMERGENCIES JUST KEEP COMING. About an hour ago I got the call, and it was even shorter notice than normal. We have 24 hours for Matt to get to Yakima and save 11 orphans and a mare & stallion.

Our budget is completely tapped, but we have to try. I don’t want to be the one who says “no, we can’t get them, send them to slaughter”.

It will cost roughly $3250 to save them, get the blood work for the Coggins test, the Health Certificate and the brand inspection. (The average cost is usually about $250 per horse including transporting them to NV). But this does NOT include any money for hay, grain or milk for the little ones.
