We delivered your signatures to BLM

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We wanted to let you know that on Friday, April 5 we had an incredible turnout at a rally at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) state office in Salt Lake City to stop the roundup of Utah’s Onaqui wild horses. 

People from all over the country – including New York, Florida, Tennesse, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and California – joined a fabulous group of Utahns to be a voice for these horses. Watch a video of the rally below!

After the rally, AWHC and our coalition partner, the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group, delivered 100,000 of your signatures and met with top BLM Utah officials about collaborating for the humane management of the Onaqui wild horses.

The BLM is to be commended for its work to develop existing fertility control program there (in conjunction with Wild Horses of America Foundation) and its openness to collaborating with our groups to further expand the program as a humane alternative to large-scale roundups from this Herd Management Area (HMA).

The meeting opened a positive dialogue between our groups and the BLM, and we plan to meet again with the Utah officials in 1-2 weeks to further discuss how we can collaborate for the benefit of the beloved Onaqui wild horses.

Thank you for taking the time to sign our petition. You have made a difference!

FW: AN URGENT CALL FOR NEWBORN FOALS IN THE SHIPPER’S PEN, – A NEW “DON’T LET ME SHIP TO SLAUGHTER” DEADLINE, & MORE LIVES SAVED

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

YOU did it! YOU kept Smokey & the Bandit, and poor Buddy from being loaded on the “trailer of death”. It is with a broken heart I share the news, that for Bandit, his journey would end long before we wanted. We had to alleviate Bandit’s pain, as he suffered a horrific case of colic. I have no doubt his condition played a huge part in it all just being too much for him to fight. It was the right thing to do for him, and he is running free in Heaven.

As much as it hurts to lose him so much sooner than we wanted, y’all saved him from the horror of being sent to slaughter, and sometimes we are only here to provide temporary love and care.

So we decided to rescue another horse in his honor. Unfortunately, when we saw “LIL BANDITO”, we came across two other horses that were on the list to ship to their death, today!!!. So we had to step up, and pray our Chilly Pepper Family is on board with saving the two new ones also.

IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL OF THIS, I received another phone call. Chilly Pepper has 2 NEWBORN BABIES AND A 5 DAY OLD, waiting for us in WA.

As their tiny little lives unfold, little do they know that in a few days they will lose their Mama’s, and our Chilly Pepper Family will be the ONLY CHANCE they have at life. These babies are ONLY OFFERED to CHILLY PEPPER. No other rescues are allowed access to these babies.

If history repeats itself, I will be picking up more than 3 when I get the notice he is “shipping the horses”.

There are times when we have the opportunity to buy the mares with the babies, but that is not an option right now. So we keep quiet and save the lives that we can. There are so many tears when we pick up these tiny, frightened babies, but our job is to provide the best possible care we can, and as you all know, that take a serious toll on the budget.

So while Matt is down south picking up the new kids, and delivering some horses to their new homes, I will be prepping to head back up to WA for these teeny tiny babies. As always, WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN! We are so grateful for the folks who stay here and take care of everything while we are off picking up and delivering horses.

Most of the babies (from the last group) are still having issues, although the vet has finally figured out what might be causing it. But there are numerous new vet bills floating around, as well as the fact that between all of them, they are drinking the milk re-placer by the gallons.

On Monday, Matt will be taking Buddy to the local vet to see what the best options are for him. We have a safe place for him to stay if he needs time before traveling, and if he can come home right away we will do that. However, there is still a chance he may not have a good outcome, and then we would have to honor him and respect him enough to let him go. That decision would be based on the information from the Vet and what Buddy says. He will let us know if he is ready to fight, or is too tired and wants help to end his suffering. Obviously that is not what we want.

Like every rescue out there, we do as much of the medical care as we can, (under the guidance of our trusted vets), but sometimes you have to spend the money to get the exams, tests, xrays etc.

It is Go Time, and beyond! Thankfully, our Chilly Pepper Family has never let these horses down, and I know you won’t.

You are all a gift to these horses, and I am proud to know such amazing people. Thank you for your love, because YOU DECIDE how many horses we save! Matt and I are just “the Boots on the Ground”, but you all are the Heart and Soul. So let’s keep saving lives and get all of these kids to safety.

“Daisy Meadows”, “Give Me a Chance”, and “Lil Bandito”, have been marked safe and held for us on the belief that y’all will come through for them. Please keep them safe!

As always, the Chilly Pepper Family Rocks!

Thank you!!

Reminder: #SaveOnaqui Day of Action TODAY!

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

 

TODAY: RALLY FOR ONAQUI AND DIGITAL PROTEST

 

Today is the day we put a stop to the BLM rounding up 80% of the famous and beloved Onaqui wild horses in Utah.

Help #SaveOnaqui today by sharing your support online! Take one (or all!) of the following easy actions, and help make a huge impact for the Onaqui wild horse herd.

 

You can also take it one step further, and make the phones ring! Call BLM Utah, (801) 539-4001 and BLM National, (202) 208-4896 – and let them know why you’re against the government rounding up 80% of the beloved Onaqui herd.

Here’s a sample script:

I am calling to urge the BLM to cancel the Onaqui wild horse roundup and expand the existing PZP fertility control program instead. This will save taxpayers millions of dollars and will allow these cherished horses to stay free with their families. Thank you.

Remember to follow our Facebook page today for the latest updates on our rally at the BLM’s Salt Lake City office.

All the ways you can help #SaveOnaqui

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

This is the most important week in our campaign to save the famed wild horses of Onaqui in Utah.

We’ve got a lot going on – and we need your support. Whether it’s on the ground in Utah or from afar, every action you can take this week will make a difference.

  • Friday is our rally at the BLM office in Salt Lake City, UT. Please join us as we protest the round-up of 80% of one of the most famous wild horse herds in America, and tell the BLM that their plan of action is unacceptable.
  • Our petition to save the Onaqui herd has gathered almost 97,000 signatures, and counting! Help us hit 100k! Please share with your networks, as we need as many signatures as possible! 
  • Also on Friday, we’ll be holding a Digital Sit-in to #SaveOnaqui. Support the movement by sharing on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the #SaveOnaqui hashtag. More on this later.
  • You can help show your support for the Onaqui wild horses by purchasing our Onaqui Apparel, proceeds of which will go directly to saving the Onaqui herd.

A majority of Americans oppose rounding up wild horses and using taxpayer money to put them in holding pens for life. And while the BLM has come after so many of America’s wild herds, the Onaqui wild horses hold a special place in our nation’s hearts.

As one of the most viewed wild horse herds, they not only offer a unique opportunity for people to witness the magic of horses roaming free in the wild, they also contribute to the local community by bringing in thousands of tourists every year.

Make a donation this week to support our efforts to Save Onaqui.

Thank you,

Suzanne

PS – Keep an eye out for an email this week with more information on our rally and digital sit-in to #SaveOnaqui happening Friday.

Tales of Onaqui

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Kimerlee Curyl is a renowned fine art photographer who has been working amongst the Onaqui wild horses since 2009. She is one of many artists who has come to know the herd very well, in a place that now feels like home.

We can’t let these beautiful horses, who have roamed Utah since the 1800s, lose their families and their homes in a BLM roundup.

Chip in now to help us rally the public and political support needed to fight the BLM’s cruel plan for the famed Onaqui horses.

Photo by Kimerlee Curyl

Kimerlee explains just how important these horses are:

“My first journey to the area was in 2009. While numerous visits have followed, I will never forget the magic and mystery of that initial trip. The Onaqui horses have called the historic Pony Express Trail in Utah home for generations. To remove them from this territory – one they once helped man traverse in the name of special interest – is a betrayal to our past, especially when access to cost-effective solutions have been offered and declined by the BLM. They are woven into the fabric of this landscape and deserve solutions to be expanded upon. They deserve to be here.”

Photographers like Kimerlee come from all over the world to visit and photograph these wild horses. But in a few short months, 80% of the herd could be gone forever.

Donate now, and help us work to save the Onaqui wild horses.

Thank you,

IN BETWEEN ORPHAN FOAL RESCUES – ANOTHER 911 CALL, A STARVING GELDING AND A PONY IN THE “SHIP PEN” NEED YOUR HELP TODAY!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

 

“BANDIT”, shown above, needs your help today!!Although we are on standby for more babies, I couldn’t ignore this beautiful boy. Seeing the despair in his eyes, and knowing that we can not only change that, but keep him off the slaughter truck sent me running to the computer. (Ok, so I can barely walk, but y’all know what i mean.) In all seriousness though, the clock is ticking…

I had to make an immediate decision, so once again I based it on faith. Faith that my Chilly Pepper Family will step up and make it possible to save not only him, but the 3 year old pony who was also scheduled to ship to slaughter. However, we can’t do it without y’all making it happen. Our budget is tapped out, and at this point, we simply don’t have funds to save these kids

Please help us save them. It is absolutely “baby time”, but every single life matters, and when God puts a certain one in front of us, I have to try and do everything I can to help.

So Please, help me, help him. Can you imagine how horrible just the trip to the slaughter plant would be in his condition? And then what would be waiting for him? It isn’t right, and since he and the little pony are “in front of us”, let’s save their lives too.

The babies are all hanging in there. Most of them have had scours and been sick at some point, and Goldilocks is still really struggling, as some of the others are. I have another vet bill for about $1500+, and between all the babies, there have been lots of vet visits. We are going through milk at a crazy pace, and so appreciate any and all help with these ongoing expenses.

As always, the Chilly Pepper Family Rocks!

Thank you!!

Update: Petition to Save Onaqui

1

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The BLM is full steam ahead with plans to round up and capture 80% of the famous Onaqui herd in Utah. But we can’t let up.

We still need 5,318 more signatures to reach our goal before April 5, when we are delivering our petition and holding a rally outside of the BLM’s Salt Lake City office. We need your help.

Add your name now, and take a stand to protect the Onaqui wild herd.

There are only 486 wild horses in the Onaqui herd. If the BLM gets their way, only 120 horses will remain on over 240,000 acres. 

There are humane ways to manage wild horse populations that the BLM is just not using. Instead, the agency wants to move forward with an inhumane roundup, using helicopters to chase the horses for miles. Once captured, the horses will be forced to spend the rest of their lives in holding pens and pastures, adding to the millions of dollars taxpayers are forced to spend on this ineffective and mismanaged federal program.

The Onaqui horses are irreplaceable – not just to America as a symbol of our freedom and our heritage, but to the local communities who benefit from the tourism dollars brought by wild horse admirers and photographers.

Please help us keep the Onaqui wild horses wild. Sign our petition to save this iconic herd from devastation.

Thank you,

Suzanne

Barney Update!

Remember Barney?  He came in back in January from a family distress situation. He was sickly when he arrived due to a respiratory issue and chronic diarrhea.
Barney was slowly transitioned from a hay diet (2 flakes am and pm) to a pellet diet.  Today, he’s eating about 56 pounds of senior pellets per day.
Today, he’s feeling much better,
especially after his spa day!
Barney is grateful for everyone’s support in making his way back to good health.

Join us! A rally to save the Onaqui wild horses

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

On Friday, April 5, we’re holding a rally in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah at the BLM State Office to save the Onaqui wild horses. We need a huge showing to make sure the BLM hears our voices loud and clear – and we hope you’ll join us in taking a stand against the BLM’s planned roundup that could wipe out 80% of the herd.

Click here to get more information about our rally on Facebook, and confirm your attendance.

BLM Utah State Office

440 W 200 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84101-1113

11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., April 5, 2019

This rally is our chance to speak up for the beloved Onaqui wild horses – one of the most famous herds in the West that draws thousands of eco-tourists to the area every year. With a great showing of support, we’ll be able to get the attention of the media and generate the national grassroots pressure on the BLM to spare this historic and unique mustang herd.

Help us generate a strong showing for the wild horses to #SaveOnaqui.

On April 5, we’ll be there… will you?

Thank you,

Suzanne

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

This week, we launched a campaign to save the Onaqui wild horses in Utah. To truly understand how special these horses are, you have to see them for yourself.

Watch this video about the Onaqui wild horse herd, and share it with your friends to raise awareness of their perilous situation.

 

The BLM plans to round up 80% of the herd and put them in holding pens for life – because they say the horses are overpopulating the area. But it’s not true and it doesn’t have to be like this. Cattle and sheep grazing consumes the majority of the resources on these public lands, and we have safe and humane solutions to control wild horse populations that the BLM has failed to implement adequately. Instead, millions of dollars in taxpayer money will go toward cruel roundups and confinement.

These horses deserve to be with their families and to roam free in the wild where they belong. This is an incredibly unique, tightly-knit society of horses. We can’t let the government destroy their herd.

These iconic wild horses need all of the teammates and fans they can get right now. Watch and share our video, and help us spread the word to save the Onaqui mustangs.

Thank you for helping save these national treasures. Let’s #SaveOnaqui.

Blue Update!

Remember Blue?  Our Virginia Range mustang that came in with a large growth over his hind fetlock?
This week, he finished his last treatment with cautious optimism!
He is healed and only a scar remains.
Blue’s a gem!  A tough one, but we’ve learned
a lot from this guy!
Keep your fingers crossed for this lil’ guy.
Blue sends huge thanks for everyone’s support in helping him with the growth removal and the long series of treatments and procedures.  It’s been a long road, but gratifying in the end to be able to see it through and never give up!
Special thanks to Drs. Stolba and Errico, and the Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center team for always being here when Blue needed them.

Our most important fundraising event is coming soon.

BABIES ARE COMING – 2 NEWBORNS WHO MAY NOT MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT – WILL YOU HELP US SAVE THEM? WE NEED HELP NOW

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

There are so many emergencies, but THIS IS BEYOND AN EMERGENCY. The babies have been dying left and right, and we need to know right now if folks are going to step up and help us save them.

It’s hard to know where to start. I was contacted and asked if Chilly Pepper will take on these fragile foals. However, due to the extremely dangerous conditions the folks are catching in, the price is $300. (We pay more than that for horses all the time), but there could be up to 16? or MORE???? coming in by tomorrow. So just for bail I would need $4800. Each baby will take a minimum of $300 in milk powder the first month, and that does not include anything. So milk powder alone will be close to $5,000. and that is just the start.

I HAD TO COMMIT to the newborns strictly on FAITH!! But after 11 of the first 12 we were on stand by for died, I cannot in good conscience say no. So I have committed to another 4 that will be here shortly. But if folks want us to have a chance to save the other 10 they have seen stranded in the snow, with their starving families and moms with no milk, we have to raise enough funds and quickly. IF they bring another 10 tomorrow, that is $3000 we have to have, or the babies won’t survive. Again, we pay more than that for a horse/baby all the time. It is just so scary when they are coming all at once.

So I need folks to step up now and let me know if we should try and save the 10 tomorrow, and I need desperately for folks to help us purchase,vet and take care of the ones we will have tonight.

It is so hard to have to keep asking for help, but we simply cannot do this without y’all.

Yesterday I was called to help a mare that was tangled in barbed wire. I went with another guy who had also been asked to help. He and his buddy went ahead of me, and I got all the medical supplies. The biggest heartbreak was that she was so starved it was worth fighting a barbed wire fence to try and find food that SIMPLY DOES NOT EXIST OUT THERE. Her injuries were not the worst of it. She lay for too long in the freezing snow and ice, and it was too much for her. So she had to be “dispatched”.

We have never ever had to deal with a situation like this. So I need to know, do I say YES for tomorrow? At this point I cannot risk anymore funds than I already have tonight. We are getting into hay money, but I can’t let two new babies freeze to death when I know that y’all are so amazing and would want to save them.

So Please Donate Generously. As always, I do this for free, but the babies need money for feed, care and vetting, not to mention getting them to safety.

I leave this in your hands, and am praying we can save the others that are stranded out there..

Cinderella, shown above, was rescued from a very likely snowy grave. She is here now and receiving the care she needs.

PLEASE HELP NOW!

Below you can clearly see how much snow is around. It is covering many of the barbed wire fences, and that shows not only how deep it is, but one of the reasons these rescues are so dangerous.

America’s most famous wild horses are under attack

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

Photo by Kimerlee Curyl

If you want to go see wild horses, chances are you’ll find yourself just outside Salt Lake City, visiting the Onaqui wild horse herd of Utah. They’re among the most famous (and most photographed) wild horses in the country.

Now the Bureau of Land Management is about to destroy the herd and roundup more than 90% of these iconic horses.

This is a fight we have to win. Sign the petition now and demand that the BLM preserve the Onaqui wild horse herd.

This is the beginning of a multi-week campaign to stop this devastating roundup. We’ll be rallying supporters, lobbying lawmakers, and activating the local community that treasures these horses.

We have to stop this roundup:

  • Utah would lose an important ecotourism resource. The horses attract thousands of tourists and photographers a year. Several of these horses have become so well-known, they’ve been given names – like the beloved “Old Man,” a 28-year-old stallion enjoying his elder years with the herd.
  • The roundups are devastating and cruel — using helicopters to run horses, including foals (babies), for miles until they’re exhausted. Many are injured, breaking their legs and necks, crashing into fences. Some die from their injuries and from exhaustion.
  • Taxpayers shouldn’t spend millions on this unnecessary abuse.Proven, humane, and cost-effective management solutions already exist. In fact, the American Wild Horse Campaign has offered to work with the BLM to expand and fund a proven fertility control program to reduce population growth without removing horses from their homes on the range.

Add your name: Stop the brutal roundup of America’s most iconic wild horses!

Thank you,

Speak up for the Warm Springs wild horses and more news!

Speak up for Oregon’s Warm Springs Wild Horses

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comments on a plan for the Warm Springs Herd Management Area (HMA) in Oregon. This HMA was recently the site of a large roundup that removed 100 percent of the wild horses living there, including 100 mares who were slated to be used in an experimental surgical sterilization study. That plan was dropped after a federal judge issued a Preliminary Injunction in response to litigation by filed AWHC, The Cloud Foundation, and the Animal Welfare Institute. The BLM’s new plan is to return just 66 of the 846 horses removed from the HMA and treat all released mares with PZP fertility control. Bottom line: The BLM is releasing too few horses to maintain a healthy, genetically viable population in the Warm Springs HMA. Please take action with us below!

 

Forest Service Hands Reins of Wild Horse Management in CA to Cattle Interests

For the last several months, our team has been investigating how livestock interests in northern California’s Modoc National Forest took control of U.S. Forest Service policy regarding the management of federally-protected wild horses. Our reporting shows a trail of money, extremist politics and junk science leading to the current situation in which the Forest Service intends to sell federally-protected wild horses without limitation on slaughter for the first time in history. Read more about the situation and the disturbing precedent it sets for special interest takeover of public lands policy by clicking below.

 

Rescue Video: The ‘Alabama 5’

When we learned in April 2018 that five Virginia Range mustangs who had been adopted to a small sanctuary in Alabama were sold to a notorious kill buyer, we sprang into action. Just days before they shipped for slaughter, we rescued them. Thanks to supporters like you — and to Chilly Pepper Mustang Rescue and Freedom Reigns Equine Sanctuary — this small family is safe. Just four years ago, these mustangs were roaming free in Nevada. When we reached them in Alabama, they were in rough shape — neglected, traumatized and very thin. Today, they’re back home in the West looking happy and healthy. Watch their story in our latest video, and then share with your friends and family!

Wyoming’s wild horses need your help … and more news!

Take Action for Wyoming’s Wild Horses

The BLM is accepting public comments on a Herd Management Area (HMA) and roundup plan for the Fifteen Mile HMA in Wyoming. The plan calls for removing over 300 horses to reduce the population to the low “Appropriate” Management Level (AML) of 70 horses, skewing the sex ratios in favor of males, and maintaining the population number in the future with more roundups and removals. 

The BLM plans to significantly reduce the existing horse population even though the agency acknowledges that the horses are healthy at their current population level of 404. Additionally, little active livestock grazing is occurring in this HMA so conflicts with ranchers are minimal. Instead of continuing the same failed approach to wild horse management, the BLM should maintain the Fifteen Mile wild horse population at a healthy number by implementing a robust fertility control program to humanely manage the population of wild horses in the wild. Tell the BLM to implement a humane and sustainable plan for the Fifteenmile horses – Take Action today!

 

Devil’s Garden Mustangs are Looking for Homes

Wild horses captured from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in the Modoc National Forest near Alturas, California last fall are still in need of homes. These are the horses that the U.S. Forest Service wants to sell without limitation on slaughter, but our lawsuit has so far blocked this action. Currently 43 horses age 10 and over are for sale with limitation on slaughter, and 20 horses age 9 and under are available for adoption for $125. Meanwhile, our partner sanctuary, Montgomery Creek Ranch (MCR), has six halter trained two-yea- olds also from Devil’s Garden available for adoption. If these beautiful youngsters get adopted, MCR will be able to take in additional Devil’s Garden horses in need of homes. Learn more below.

 

New AWHC Urges ‘No Vote’ on NM Legislation

AWHC is fighting for New Mexico’s wild horses by opposing state legislation that would put the fate of non-federally protected wild horses in the hands of the New Mexico Livestock Board, which has a documented history of anti-wild horse actions and support for horse slaughter. Although the bill has been amended to prevent the Livestock Board from killing wild horses removed from the range, it allows the board to make decisions about removal of wild horses from public and private land, a situation that would spell the end for free-roaming wild horses in New Mexico. Read more below, and if you are from New Mexico, be sure to oppose the legislation here.

CHILLY PEPPER UPDATE – BABY SEASON IS BEGINNING…… CAN YOU HELP US TODAY?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

My heart feels like it’s bleeding as I write this. Our beautiful baby, Star Fire, crashed again yesterday morning, and this time it was clear she was finished fighting to stay with us..

When we were at the vet in CA, it was clear that we could “end her fight” based on the cost, her chances etc. _It reminded me of the 907 horses we sorted in South Dakota and how some folks kept telling me to “euthanize”, (in my book “kill”) the ones that needed extra help, might not be easy and would take a lot of time and effort, _

However, that is not what we do. One look in her eyes and I knew that we had to keep fighting with her. As we were leaving, the vet gave us a 50/50 chance.

I made a promise when I started this. If God placed an animal in front of us, no matter what species, I would never fighting, because it was inconvenient, or might need some medical care. I promised to fight along side that critter as long as he or she wanted to fight.

(Sadly, I do realize that there are times when my job is simply to provide comfort, love, and round the clock care.)

This is one of the reasons we are asking for help today. We still had not covered the entire $2000 bill in CA. Add yesterday’s emergency call, and due to some of the kids up in WA being sick, we have had additional costs due to numerous vet visits and those are still an issue.

There were some wonderful folks who pledged generously and then for reasons I call “life”, were unable to send the funds. So that was a little bit of a shock, and now the budget is much tighter than is comfortable. Between the unexpected costs, we are about $5000 short of where we should be, and that leaves no extra for setting up for the babies.

We had to move the babies out of Mama Mel’s, because we have simply not had enough funds, or time, to properly set up the nursery. (This is supposed to be our off season.) Although Mama Mel was fabulous in caring for the 11 weanlings, the weather has been brutal, to the point where cattle in the area have been dropping like flies from the weather, and we could not provide enough shelter etc.

So we also have a bill for the babies being picked up and transported to where they are being boarded. Once again weather is an issue, but Matt will be heading back up in a couple days.

The 2019 BABY SEASON is nearly upon us, and we simply are not ready. We need more shelter, pens and to start purchasing the milk, medicine and supplies that we will need. There is a huge chance that this year is going to be especially brutal. Folks are seeing the horses starving to death, as there has been so much snow. Pregnant moms are starving while carrying their foals. It is a big mess, and NOW IS THE TIME to get ready.

Thank you for being there and for making it possible to save so many lives. As always, YOU are the reason we keep doing what we do. So please help us get caught up, and get ready for these precious babies.

Please help us “git ‘er done”!
