SCOTTY , RUSTIC, and ALWAYS…and CLANCY, too

The fab three seniors, Scotty, Rustic, and Always came in to AAE in January 2019 as their retired owners were experiencing significant health issues making it difficult to provide their daily care.  They were also in the process of downsizing, selling their ranch property, and relocating their home out of state.
  The trio was in good health, and they had been well cared for, but like so many senior horses, they had been difficult to rehome.  To no avail, their prior owners had tried for quite some time to find a suitable boarding facility near their out of state home or a home locally.
  
Not long after they arrived, we did the intake dance, having their care updated:  hoof care, dentals, vaccines, deworming, and microchips. All three had old horse teeth, and they were all on pellets only senior diets.  The two ol’ dudes had a bit of “the look”, so Dr. Stolba – Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center also collected blood samples to test them for Cushing’s Disease.  Their bloodwork indicated they were both “in the zone’ (borderline), so they were started on low doses of daily medication (pergolide).
 
Upon arrival, Scotty was Rustic and Always were quarantined together; however, Scotty was quickly separated to improve his dining situation.  Rustic was bonded to Always; I say “to” and not “with”. Rustic found confidence through Always and rarely left her side. Though Always didn’t mind Rustic’s affection, his attachment became a detriment to her.  She’s such a lovely mare, and he wouldn’t stand for her to be anywhere but next to him. She loved attention and grooming, and she even seemed to enjoy getting back into saddle work. She thrived without him and had so much to offer. The longer they were here, the more dependent Rustic grew on Always. Scotty’s an independent soul, and unlike many seniors, he was quite adaptable to most anything.
  
Scotty is a 33 y/o Morgan gelding.  He is just a good ol’ guy! Scotty was used for both English and Western riding and on trails for many, many years.  He enjoys grooming and attention and has been willing to do whatever’s asked. Though he’s looking great for his age, he’s a bit arthritic, so he was also started on a daily feel good med (aka Equioxx) to help make each day a little easier. Due to hind end weakness, Scotty had not been ridden for quite some time.  Scotty is simply an uncomplicated guy…easy-going, laid back, and doesn’t demand a lot.
Rustic a 26 y/o Morgan.  He, too, is a sweet ol’ guy, too, but he has baggage, serious baggage! Rustic experienced a nail injury to his right hind hoof as a two year old.  A nail penetrated his navicular bursa, and he had an extended recovery period. As a result, the docs said there was no riding in his future. Worry not, he was trained as a driving horse, and did a lot of driving over the years, but e hadn’t been driven for some time. Rustic is a “Nervous Nellie” kinda guy.  He lacks confidence and bonds strongly to his paddock-mate or neighbors. At first he took a very slow, patient approach to halter, and he was anxious if separated from Always.
 Always is an early 20s Oldenberg mare.  Always was originally trained as a hunter/jumper, then later used for both English and Western riding, and eventually on trails.  Though she is a branded Oldenberg, her registration was lost. Her registry information was found online. Always is a very nice gal, very easy-going and mild mannered.  She enjoys grooming and attention, and she’s “always” willing to do what’s asked. Always was restarted with light saddle work, and after several years off, she was a delight to ride. She appeared to have had a good education under saddle, and it appeared with some conditioning, she could possibly work as a companion with occasional light riding.
It wasn’t long, and this sweet mare found her family.  She was headed to a big pasture to befriend another gelding to be his companion and an occasional light riding horse.
In comes Clancey!  Clancey came to AAE from a foster situation a few months after the fab three arrived.  She had belonged to a young woman that was heading off to college, and she was running out of time to find a home for her long time and senior companion.  Clancey had done it all, and the years of work had taken a toll on her ol’ bod. Her foster succumbed to the young gals plea for help after they visited to meet her as a potential riding horse.  They left when they didn’t see a fit, but impulsively took her in after pleas for help from her young owner. However, their other two horses were less than welcoming to the poor ol’ gal. It wasn’t long before they realized it would not work out and asked for help.  We accepted Clancey, but she remained with them in foster until we could find an adopter or space opened up.
 Sadly, no good situations presented for her, and she finally moved over to AAE.  Scotty was eventually moved to a paddock beside this lonely gal (Clancey), and they fell for each other!  It wasn’t long until Clancey and Scotty were neighbors that grew very fold of each other.  They were placed in long term foster when one of our volunteer families opened their hearts to this old couple so they could live out their lives together. Thank you, Jill and Bret for making room in your hearts, home, and barn for these two oldies!
That brings us back to Rustic.  As Rustic and Always became more of a challenge, Rustic’s behavior regressed. Rustic’s separation anxiety was extreme.  Ultimately, Rustic and Always were separated for Always’ benefit; she thrived, and Rustic moved on to attach to his next neighbor (yes, he quickly forgot about Always and began obsessing over another gelding).  Rustic was moved to a bachelor pad in the barn where he got exposure to daily volunteer activity and ultimately, their affection.  The aloof Rustic wants to be loved, but he resents a halter.  He is very selective about who touches him and when. He plays hard to get, and he IS often hard to get, unless he’s in a relatively small space.  Rustic is sensitive, and when approached slowly and calmly (by some), he accepts and enjoys h     cvxn (on his terms).  He can be a nice guy, but needs an experienced and calm/low energy person.
Rustic desperately needs a special kind of home where he can live out his remaining years.  Once haltered, he is easy going, enjoys grooming and walks.  He wants to bond with certain people.  He is good with front hooves and with farrier on front hooves, but right hind (past injury) was an issue with first trim. Rustic kicked out at farrier; however, prior owner indicated he was fine once hoof is in hand. That wasn’t the case that day.  We’ve since used a sedative gel to trim him to assure safety of our farrier.

Can you give this guy a final landing place?

Emaciated Horse and Donkey Become Best Friends 

As some of you may know, on the 7th of November Trevor and I went on a rescue trip to pick up a donkey and horse. (Ann was working hard for the rescue at Equine Affaire, otherwise she would have be with us!) The donkey and horse have since been given the new names Hobie and Walton. Both of these animals are completely emaciated and have been starved. Long story short, the gentleman we picked them up from today went to a farm in VT to buy horses. When looking at the horses he was going to buy he noticed a donkey and a horse in a separate pen and noticing their awful condition inquired about them to the farm owner. The owner told him in few words that they were no longer being used on his “ranch” and he was going to dispose of them in the next couple of weeks. Bless this man, he bought them on the spot.. Hobie the donkey has been used the majority of his life for donkey basketball events, which is exactly what it sounds like. People dragging donkeys onto basket ball courts, jumping on their backs for “fun and entertainment.” This is in no way enjoyable for the donkeys, and in our opinion, and many others it is 100% abuse and taking advantage of the donkeys calm and stoic nature. But more of that at a different time. Hobie and Walton bonded as a result of both of them being completely starved, bullied and beaten up by other horses.

When we first arrived to pick them up, both Hobie and Walton were standing separate from the other horses in the herd. Hobie was the first to say hello when we called to him. He was facing away from us, his ears were limp and didn’t move or twitch when we called. Instead he turned his whole body around slowly and stiffly to greet us, nibbling at our pockets and hands through the gate. We melted into a puddle. While petting him I looked around the farm to find a chestnut horse standing in the middle of the paddock, not with Hobie and not with the horses. He was standing alone and looking forlorn.  Walton, noticing that we had started to talk about him, came over, ears pricked forward, glossy eyes, and dragging feet to say his greetings. Instant tears. Instant boiling rage. How someone can intentionally starve two sweet animals to this point is just unimaginable, and there is a special place you know where for people who do such things in our opinion.

Trevor with Hobie in hand, and I with Walton hopped right onto the trailer. As we told them we are going to take care of them from here on out, this is a new beginning. The gentleman who saved them and took care of them for a month said his goodbyes and gave some treats to both of them.

We headed for our two hour ride back to the rescue. Poor Trevor had to listen to my ranting through (mostly) choked back tears of how horrible people can be to living creatures. The whole drive back I was antsy thinking about all I was going to do to, treat his infected wounds, heal the rain rot covering his back, keep him warm tonight, get rid of the lice, configuring his meal plans in my head, what to pick up at the grain store in the morning etc.

Once we got home (or to the rescue I call home) we haltered and blanketed Hobie and Walton before they stepped out of the trailer and into the rain to keep them as dry as possible. Last night it was freezing, a low of 20 degrees and snow flurries. Not the most welcoming weather, but thank goodness we have so many mismatched old blankets! We found two that some-what fit and got them cozy. We unloaded them. Hobie the brave shaky little donkey stepped off the trailer first almost falling down. Onward to their new pen across the street, where we quarantine animals for 30 days. Even thought they have current health certificates and negative coggins, we like to take every precaution to protect the other animals on the farm.

Hobie and Walton are getting small frequent meals throughout the day; five meals to be exact of warm mashes with all the supplements to help them get healthy.

To address the elephant in the room, no this is not a donkey, mule or hinny. Yes we are a donkey and mule rescue. As with everything there is the exception to every rule, and Walton is an exception right now. We would have said yes to taking him into the rescue if this sad equine friend had long ears, medium ears, short ears or even no ears! We are sure that all of our supporters stand behind us on this decision. We could not have seen any animal in that condition, and left them behind.

We will keep everyone updated as we help these two brave friends recover. If you are able to donate to the care these two are going to need we sure would appreciate it. To donate please click the link below.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We’re officially one week away from #GivingTuesday, which is one of the largest days for charitable giving in the United States for the entire year. Our ability to hit our annual fundraising goal at the end of the year depends on having a successful #GivingTuesday.

Here’s Why We Need Your Help: Over the past weeks, we’ve been sharing the news with you. The BLM outlined a $5 billion plan that could result in the removal and potential wholesale slaughter of America’s wild horse population in our lifetimes.

The Congress is currently considering giving the BLM more money to accelerate roundups and begin implementation of the plan. This is the biggest threat to mustangs and wild burros in generations and it could begin early next year — Which means we’re in a fight for their lives in 2020.

Our 2020 budget and the extent to which we can fight back (and expand our work in critical areas!) depends on reaching our end of year fundraising goal. And the only way we can achieve that is if we can bring on 5,000 individual donations on #GivingTuesday.

Let’s show the BLM, the livestock industry, and Congress that we WILL stop their attacks on wild horses and burros — Make a donation toward our #GivingTuesday fundraising drive.

This is an ambitious goal, we know. But the stakes have never been higher and with your help, we will rise to the occasion.

Together, we are unstoppable,

American Wild Horse Campaign

P.S. — If you can’t donate, we completely understand. But there’s a way you can help us out without giving a cent. Share this email with three friends to help us spread the word and recruit more friends of America’s wild horses and burros!

Photos from the field: One person really makes all the difference

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

“Zero wild horses.” That is the Appropriate Management Level the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) set for the Seaman and White River Herd Areas (HAs) in Nevada.

As a result, the BLM rounded up and removed 294 wild horses from these HAs this month with 9 dead. AWHC asked the BLM to delay any action until the court ruled in our Caliente Complex lawsuit about the legality of such a decision.

The BLM proceeded, until they halted the roundup because most of the horses were at higher elevations in the juniper forests where the helicopters couldn’t get them. The BLM says it will resume in January when the temperatures drop and the horses come down to lower ground. The BLM did allow public observation during this month’s roundup and most days, our observer was the only member of the public onsite to document and monitor the operation.

We are the eyes and ears on the ground. If it weren’t for that lone AWHC field representative, the public wouldn’t have insight, nor the BLM accountability, regarding this roundup — and many others.

If you can, make a donation to ensure we have representatives on the ground to document roundups and hold the BLM accountable.

Below Are Photos Our Observer Took During The Seaman and White River Roundup:

These photos are heartbreaking. Wild horses deserve to be free and live in the wild. That’s why it is critical we continue to observe, document and report on the atrocities the BLM is committing, while continuing to fight in the courts, in Congress and in the field to stop the roundups and implement humane management.

Your donation allows us to have field representatives on the ground and powers our legal defense fund so we can make roundups a thing of the past: Your support makes all the difference.

2 MORE LITTLE ONES NEED YOU NOW! LET’S BRING THEM HOME TO CHILLY PEPPER ASAP!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

These precious little stallions need your help asap!! It is that time of year when folks start to “downsize”, as winter quickly approaches, and we know all know what happens to the unwanted.

These 2 teeny tinies need a safe place to land, and we are it. Both are pretty much unhandled and are little stud colts.

Please help us get them today!! We will have to pay bail, vetting, for health certs and transportation to get them home. Let’s make their holiday season happy and full of love.

The last rescue was successful, although we barely squeaked by.

Thankfully someone stepped up for the large pony and the Arabian. We were able to bail out the older TB mare, as well as help save 2 stallions. Thank you everyone who stepped up. We realize it is the beginning of the holiday seasons, and we so appreciate everyone who still is stepping up and saving lives. God bless you!!

The BLM is moving fast — Two new announcements re: wild horses

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

The Bureau of Land Management is moving fast — This past week alone the BLM concluded a roundup in the Challis Herd Management Area (HMA) in central Idaho and announced that the agency will be moving forward with a plan to reduce the size of the wild horse and burro population in the Twin Peaks HMA in northeast California by 80% over the next 10 years.

Challis Roundup: 295 Wild Horses Captured

The BLM forcibly removed 295 wild horses from the Challis HMA between Nov. 5 and Nov. 11 as part of the Idaho roundup. This week the agency is expected to complete a census flight to determine how many wild horses will be returned to the 169,000-acre area.

The vast majority of the wild horses removed from these public lands will not be returned to the wild. Many will spend their lives in the BLM’s holding facilities, or worse, face being killed or sold for slaughter if Congress pulls the plug on funding for their long-term care.

We can expect the roundups to be greatly accelerated if the Senate approves the $5 billion plan, pushed by the livestock industry and BLM’s Acting Director, which would reduce wild horse populations in the West to near extinction levels.

AWHC is working to ensure this plan is not implemented: Help us continue to organize against the greatest threat to wild horses and burros in generations by making a donation if you can.

You can read more about the Challis Roundup in this article from the Idaho Statesman here.

Twin Peaks HMA: BLM Officially Moves to Reduce Herd Size

The BLM recently released its management plan for the wild horses and burros of the Twin Peaks HMA — Including future helicopter roundups and fertility control over the next ten years.

According to the Sierra Sun Times: “This plan calls for several approaches, including using helicopter drive trapping, bait-and-water trapping and fertility control to reduce the herd … over ten years.”

While AWHC supports using fertility control, we do not support the drastic reduction in herd sizes for wild horses and burros in this HMA.

Nearly 90% of the existing wild burro population will be removed over ten years, leaving just 72 animals on the range and destroying the genetic health of this herd.

For the Twin Peaks wild horses the plan is almost as bad: reduce the herd by 80% and release castrated stallions (geldings) onto the range, a move that will take the wild out of these wild horses by destroying their natural behaviors. AWHC has a pending case at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that will determine whether or not the BLM can release geldings onto the range before its research into the impacts of the procedure on wild horses is completed.

You can read the Sierra Sun Times article here.

AWHC is the eyes and ears on the ground and the voice for mustangs and burros in the halls of Congress and the courts of law. Donations, of any size, give our field team the resources they need to document these roundups as well as give us the resources to also intervene when possible through the courts. No donation is too small to make a difference.

Thank you — And we’ll keep you updated,

NOVEMBER 911 – 4 BEAUTIFUL SOULS SHIPPING TO SLAUGHTER – CAN WE SAVE THEM?? THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW!.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

It is go time once againFirst I want to say Thank You, for saving so many precious lives. Sadly, the emergencies keep coming and we have a very short deadline to save these horses.

I NEED TO COMMIT BY FRIDAY MORNING TO KEEP THEM OFF THE TRUCK!, But it is up to y’all if you want me to say yes!

I received an urgent call this morning. We have three, possibly 4 who are scheduled to ship Friday, -(The Stallion call was a separate one, but we need to try and save him too.)

We have an old Arabian mare. She is said to be as sweet as sweet can be. Her hooves need a bit of help, but she deserves no less than to live out her life in peace, surrounded only by love.

We have another old and pregnant TB mare. She definitely needs some TLC, and being pregnant, she desperately needs the proper groceries.

There is another pony who may have an adopter. We are praying that is the case.

The Stallion mentioned above is approximately 4 years old, and you are his only chance. The great news with him is that he has a wonderful home offer if we can save him.

All these kids will need to be bailed, vet checked, transported and cared for as always. We cannot save them without the funding needed to cover the costs and to provide feed and care.

PLEASE HELP US SAVE THESE LIVES!

Back at the rescue we have stallions to geld, lots of vet bills and a large need for milk powder. Our little Jack donk needs serious hoof care and he needs to get gelded before the weather is too bad. Castle, our yearling stallion also needs to be gelded immediately.

a couple of crucial developments in the fight to defend wild horses (please read)

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

Acting BLM Director William Perry Pendley’s recent declaration of wild horses as the top existential threat to public lands (even though wild horses aren’t on 88% of BLM land!) and his claim that it will cost $5 billion to “solve” the wild horse “problem” is the culmination of a years-long propaganda war against mustangs and burros.

The war is being waged by the commercial livestock industry, which seeks virtual eradication of these cherished animals in order to maximize taxpayer-subsidized grazing of privately-owned cattle and sheep on public lands.

This anti-mustang propaganda war was boosted recently with the capitulation of the Humane Society of the U.S., ASPCA and Return to Freedom to the cattlemen’s mass mustang roundup agenda.

With that in mind, your team at AWHC has been fighting back hard — from the battleground of Nevada to the seat of power in Washington DC — and we want to share some of our most recent work with you today.

Fighting Back at Ground Zero in the Wild Horse War: Nevada

On October 23, we organized a high-profile press conference with Nevada business leaders and a leading conservationist to counter the anti-wild horse messaging at a screening later that evening of the propaganda film “Horse Rich Dirt Poor.”

Well known real estate developer and Storey County Commissioner Lance Gilman and Erik Molvar, Executive Director of the Western Watersheds Campaign, struck back forcefully against the scapegoating of wild horses and in favor of protecting these iconic animals on public lands in the West. Read more about this highly successful event here.

Defending Wild Horses & Burros in Washington, DC

AWHC teamed up with our colleagues at Animal Wellness Action and The Cloud Foundation to hold a briefing on Capitol Hill for Congressional staff to discuss the mass roundup plan and its true cost to American taxpayers and the wild horses and burros we cherish. In one of the most successful Hill briefings ever, 35 staffers showed up to learn more about this issue that is obviously of concern to so many of their constituents. You can read more about this event here.

At the same time and a few miles away, the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board was meeting — with AWHC staff in attendance to ensure that your voices were represented and heard.

Throughout the meeting, BLM officials and most advisory board members expressed their utter disdain for public opinion, which they dismissed as being “emotional” and “uneducated.” It’s clear where the public stands on the mass roundup and surgical sterilization plan, as our most recent polling documents. At the meeting, we made sure that the voice of the people was not ignored.

Read more about the board meeting here.

Fighting to Keep Wild Horses Wild

While we’re battling on the national front, AWHC is investing significant resources to protect locally cherished herds and support humane management programs.

From the Virginia Range — where our darters have delivered more fertility control treatments to wild horses in six months than the entire BLM did last year — to the Onaqui Mountains in Utah, where we’re helping the BLM and the Wild Horses of America Foundation expand an existing fertility control program, to the Salt River in Arizona where we work closely with the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group, we’re working every day to keep wild horses wild and prove that humane management work.

Our mustangs and burros don’t have a voice — Which is why we’re using ours. If just 5% of you donate to this email, we could clear our monthly fundraising goal and show the BLM that the public proudly supports this important work to keep wild horses and burros wild and free!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Never has it felt more true.  The horses come to AAE for a reason, because of your support, it’s possible.
THANK YOU for all of the GREAT THINGS you do to make it possible to help so many horses!

CONWAY, one we were able to help

Conway came to AAE with six of his other equine friends after the passing of his elderly owner.  Due to his owner’s health conditions and physical limitations, this herd had not received adequate care for quite some time.  The County animal care agency had been involved for quite some time.  Though we offered assistance over a year ago; owner declined, looking only for financial support.
Conway had foundered; he had not received hoof or dental care for quite a while.
His hooves were painful, and he was very depressed.
Conway on day of pick-up in July 2019
Conway was a bit nervous, lacking confidence and appreciation for humans.  He was not readily halterable without patience and try.
Conway was evasive, sensitive, and really wanted to be alone.  He was not a fan of hoof handling, either, understandably so.
Shortly after arrival, radiographs were taken of Conway’s hooves, and he got much needed hoof and dental care.

  

Conway needed sedation for hoof care initially.  After two- to four-week trim cycles, continued hoof care and much love and attention, this lil’ guy has come around.  He’s beginning to seek attention, and he stands quietly for the farrier.  Conway has some sensitivity with the farrier when rasping his dorsal wall, likely due to residual sensitivity, but he seems to improve with each trim cycle.  Conway is living in a small mini horse/donkey herd environment, and his personality is slowly surfacing.

Thank you to Conway’s veterinarian, Diana Stolba, DVM, Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center,
and farrier, Chris Culcasi!
Conway THANKS YOU for helping him have a promising future!
Your support means the world to a horse.

HEADING BACK TO WA – MORE BABIES AT THE FEED LOT – CHILLY PEPPER NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER MIRACLE BABY – MEET LITTLE MAX, AND HIS MAMA WHO REJECTED HIM.

They just keep coming. All the horses in the last batch have been savedLuckily another rescue stepped up and helped fund raise and there is only one left at this time. We are slated to bring him home if he does not get adopted in the next few hours. Sadly, between his fees and Coggins etc., we will need another $750 just to save him, and that does not include the additional babies..

It cost $6027 ($1400 to save the horses and the rest for Coggins and Health Certs and to get the emergency vet care for our gentle giant and the tiny Max. Big Matt had a bad case of colic, and Little Matt was on his way to a certain death. In addition, one of the horses I am bringing home on this next trip needed emergency vet care yesterday for an infected hoof. So that pretty much wiped out the coffers. We try to do as much of the vetting as we can, but sometimes you have to bite the bullet and save the lives God puts in front of youSo we need more help now! I have to get to WA, so we can save the 4 babies waiting at the feed lot. Then those horses have to get vetted and we have to get back home.

THE MIRACLE OF MAX-AMILLION

I received the call for MAX, hours after he was born. His Mama absolutely refused to have anything to do with him and shoved him into a water tank. So this newborn (probably a preemie) ended up with no care, a Mama bent on hurting him, and wet and frozen cold out in the freezing winds. It was a horrific way for a tiny baby to begin life.

I was told that he was given colostrum. He couldn’t really swallow, and had no suckling reflex whatsoever. It took forever to get even tiny amounts of milk down him. The next morning we had the vet check him. Everything seemed fine.

That afternoon little Max was unconscious.. We gave him glucose and Mel worked on waking him up. When he came back to, he sat up and drank his milk like nothing had happened. I was pretty sure we had turned a corner, but that little voice said take him to WSU – the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. It was 4 hours away and I was exhausted and dreading the drive, but I knew God was telling us to go. THANKFULLY WE DID! Max-amillion had zero Passive Transfer, which means he had no colostrum. Not enough to even register. He has pneumonia, fluid around his lungs from the pneumonia, and he would have died for sure.

Between the vet bills for Big Matt and Little Max-amillion, and the funds spent purchasing the rescued horses, we simply need to recharge our funds. We need to get the rest of the kids and bring them home. I was told several are still needing milk, although I have yet to see them,

THANK YOU to everyone who made all this possible. Please let’s finish this long rescue and get these babies to safety.

MAX says, THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY LIFE AND MY MAMA TOO, even if she doesn’t want me.

550+ wild horses removed from public lands in Wyoming [contains photos from the scene]

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

As we speak, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is forcibly reducing the population of wild horses in Wyoming’s Fifteenmile Herd Management Area (HMA) by 86% through a helicopter stampede.

So far, they’ve removed 558 wild horses from the area — With the goal of capturing nearly 700 wild horses before the end of the month.

Those wild horses don’t have a voice, so we have to use ours — we have to take action to defend them. Every donation helps us keep the public informed about these cruel roundups and allows us to advocate for the tens of thousands of wild horses and burros across the West.

This week, our observer was in Wyoming’s Fifteenmile HMA, where the BLM is currently rounding up the entirety of the wild horse population there from our public lands. At least 8 horses have died in the week since the roundup began, including:

  • One horse succumbed to a neck injury during the helicopter stampede while two others were euthanized;
  • Another died as a result of a strike to the head by another wild horse on the way to the trap;
  • One mare had a major cut and was taken to Rock Springs for treatment;
  • Despite BLM reports that wild horses are “starving” to justify these roundups, the wild horses being removed are in good body condition and sound health.

After the BLM breaks apart their families, only 100 wild horses will be returned to the area, threatening the long term survival of the herd itself.

This is not an isolated incident, either. If Congress authorizes the new BLM ten-year plan, we will witness roundups of this scale all throughout the West — Putting wild horses and burros squarely on the path to extinction.

We are the eyes and ears on the ground, holding BLM accountable for these cruel roundups. Please donate to help our team continue to document roundups and work to ramp up the pressure on Congress to reject the BLM’s “path to extinction” plan.

Thank you for your continued support — We’ll keep you updated.

Sincerely,

The AWHC Team

ANOTHER 911 – A NEW RESCUE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS ONE! SO FAR 8 & MAYBE MORE??? CLOCK IS TICKING AS ALWAYS.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER 911 CALL! They just do not stop in our world.

2 More wild babies at the shipper’s so far, (and most likely more to come!) Folks have seen multiple “traps” that are currently full of wild horses, right now, today!

We received an urgent call for a group of kids that are shipping in a few days? 6 Domestics, 3 more older, “gentle giants”, who were purportedly driving horses, and 3 older saddle horses. All of these horses worked their lives away, and now that they are no longer needed, they have been thrown in the trash.

Let’s show them that timing aside, no matter what time of year, their lives DO matter! Rescue is never convenient, and this is the worst time of year to be taking on more horses. However, their lives ALWAYS matter, even if it is freezing outside and it takes tremendous amounts of work to care for them.

We will save as many as we can get funding for. But this means being responsible and knowing we have enough money to not only “buy them”, but to vet them, transport them and feed and care for them properly through the winter months, or until we can get them adopted.

So it will be up to y’all, as always. YOU decide how many more we can save. Y’all are amazing, but we simply cannot do this without you. We are exhausted, but we had to put it out there and give these guys a chance.

Big Matt was colicking the 2nd night we got him. He is a hot mess, and needs lots of prayers. His heart rate was double what it should have been and the vet was very concerned. Sadly, he is a very long way from being “out of the woods’. We are hoping and praying his new drug protocol will provide comfort and not too many side effects.

We have already spent a fortune on him, but he needs as much help as we can give him. At this time, he cannot seem to lie down. A horse HAS to be able to lie down, or it will be a death sentence. He is exhausted and when he tried to lay down, he got half way down, and it was too hard for him. He started moaning, and then finally stood back up. Vet has him starting on some good meds, so we will see if we can make him comfortable and give him a good quality of life.

Can you imagine weighing 1900 pounds, your feet and legs hurting, and not being able to lie down to rest and get off of them? We HAVE TO MAKE SURE his quality of life is one that he deserves! Horses also need to sleep. :(

We will be heading home with this current group of kids tomorrow. How many we will be able to pick up when we come back depends on you. Please help us save and take care of as many as possible.

We are also praying other folks will step up and help these horses, but for now, all we can do is try and save as many as we can.

Thank you as always for your miracles and your prayers!

Maybe you’d like to help around the barn, but don’t want to work directly with the horses, or you don’t like to muck?
We could use some help cleaning and organizing, whether it’s the feed room, the meds room, the office, the tools, groundskeeping, painting shelters, monitoring the fencelines, tree trimming, coordinating vehicle maintenance, or a zillion other things.
There’s so much that needs to be done, and
we could use some extra hands to help keep things looking nicer and more clean.
Please contact wendy@allaboutequine.org if you are interested/available during regular barn shifts,
Mon-Sat 8a-noon, Sun 9a-1p or afternoons 3p-6p.

“Why don’t you sue?” — We are

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

A common question we get asked when we shine a spotlight on cruel practices and unjust policies that threaten our wild horses is:

“Why don’t you sue?”

The answer is – we are! The American Wild Horse Campaign currently has 6 active lawsuits. We consider litigation as one of our central pillars of defense against the increasing number of threats facing wild horses and burros throughout the West.

We’ve had some incredible successes – putting in place legal protections that will stand the test of time. In the case of Devil’s Garden, we’re currently suing to protect nearly 500 wild horses from potentially being sold to slaughter.

Take a moment to read below about how we’re defending wild horses and burros in the courts of law.

And if you can – be one of the 100 donors we need to step up on this #WildHorseWednesday before midnight so we can continue to advocate and defend our wild horses and burros.

We’re only able to get involved in these legal fights because of supporters like you donating to emails like these. Be one of the 100 donors we need to step up before midnight on this #WildHorseWednesday to support our work! >>

Thank you for looking this over and for your continued support,

American Wild Horse Campaign

P.S. – Getting the word out about our work helps us out immensely! So if you could forward this email to three friends, then we can close out this #WildHorseWednesday knowing we made a difference in the fight to defend America’s wild horses and burros!

THEN IT WAS NINE – 9. WILL YOU HELP US SAVE ALL THEIR LIVES.. MORE DEADLINES & LIVES AT STAKE

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

WILL YOU SAVE MY LIFE??? (And my friends?)

The baby shown above is going to ship if we do not step up! As of tonight, there are 9 lives at stake,

Rescue is overwhelming, the constant need for fundraisers, the calls you cannot say yes to, the constant cries for help. Yet once again, we are stuck.

We simply do not have enough funds to save all these kids.

We have to be responsible to the horses already at the rescue, and we cannot take on more if we cannot properly care for them.

That being said, I believe there are enough folks who care about these precious souls who will step up and help us save them. We have committed to paying for 5, but have not covered the costs yet. Again, we are going on faith, even committing to those 5.

It takes an average of approximately $350 per horse, to purchase, get them vetted and have their blood drawn, (so they can be transported) and get them home. That is just to “save them”, and that is just the beginning.. That does not include basic feed or any additional vet care etc.

We HAVE to have additional funds for feed & care (hay, grain, vaccines etc.), or we cannot commit to saving them all.

Matt and I are willing to do the work, but the horses need your help now! You have saved so many lives, please let’s keep on “Gitten ‘Er done”’ and save ALL 9 of these lives.

The donkeys are in extremely poor shape health wise. The stud is extremely aggressive, and has not only plowed over one of our favorite people and sent him flying, he BITES! Their hooves are in horrible shape, and they will need lots of extra care and vetting.

I am out of town, and was actually trying to take a couple “rescue free” days to have time to say good bye to a much loved friend. But this was a call I couldn’t ignore. (I know she would be unhappy if I let these innocent babies die, just because my heart is filled with sadness by her passing).

So in her honor I am continuing the fight, and asking y’all for another miracle. Let’s save these lives. PLEASE donate now!!!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

It’s difficult to overstate the threat to wild horses and burros posed by the Cattlemen’s Association/HSUS/ASPCA, et. al., and their mass mustang roundup plan. If it goes into effect, up to 20,000 horses and burros each year for the next three years will be rounded up and removed from public lands.

Over the next ten years, the total number removed from the range could be as high as 130,000 wild horses and burros. 

But thanks to dedicated supporters like you who have spoken out, signed petitions, and donated, this dangerous plan is drawing national attention and backlash:

Momentum is building, but we’re facing a major deadline to stop one cruel method that the plan allows — a brutal and outdated surgical procedure that BLM intends to use to remove the ovaries of wild mares. Many veterinarians have spoken out, but more are needed to convince Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to pull the plug on this inhumane surgery.

We need as many veterinarians as possible to sign this letter to Interior Secretary Bernhardt by October 18th — please forward it to your local vet today.

Mass Roundups & Surgical Sterilization Are Not The Answer

These wild herds are at risk of being destroyed forever. And this isn’t hyperbole — mass roundups would reduce wild horse populations to near-extinction levels. Surgical sterilization would destroy the mustangs’ natural behaviors, which make them truly wild and help them survive in the rugged West.

There are much better and far safer management options to maintain viable and healthy herds of wild free-roaming horses and burros on our public lands.

The National Academies of Sciences, in its 2013 Report to the BLM, made it crystal clear that roundups don’t work:

We’re Showing There Is A Better Way

Every single day, our darters are proving that humane management of wild horses in the wild is possible. And our PZP birth control programs are getting results.

In the span of five and a half months, our team of 14 volunteer darters in the Virginia Range in Nevada delivered more fertility control treatments to wild mares than the entire BLM, with its $80-million-a-year-budget, did in all of 2018.

Just last week in the Onaqui Mountains in Utah, AWHC’s darter worked with the BLM and the Wild Horses of American Foundation to dart 81 horses.

The fact is, PZP programs are getting results. We stand ready to work with the BLM to expand these programs so that wild horses and burros can live as nature intended — Wild and Free.

The BLM plan and these escalating roundups represent a historic threat to one of America’s greatest national icons. At this time, we’re asking if you could get your local vets signature on to this letter to Secretary Bernhardt by October 18th:

We will continue to keep you updated and thank you for your continued support,

911 CALL – ANOTHER DEADLINE – SHIPPER CALLED – 3 +? FOR US, CLOCK IS TICKING – THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another 911 call today. Shipper in WA has at least 3 for us. I need to let him know asap if we can take them. TWO of them are easily big enough to ship, but we were offered the chance to save them. However, as always, there is a looming deadline.

We are so grateful to y’all for helping us save the 71 babies in August and September, but these lives are just as important. We have been absolutely swamped caring for the nearly 90 horses we had at Chilly Pepper, but thankfully, our angels stepped up to help us find placement for many of the babies. We are now close to 30 horses, but that is still a very large number going into winter. We need to stock up on groceries and meds.

With temperatures sinking in to the low 20’s in the next week, we are fighting the cold weather, “water blues”. (Low 20’s means freezing water tanks, frozen hoses, broken water lines etc. So we need to buy new tank heaters and get ready for the cold immediately. It’s only September, ugh.)

We are working on more shelter so all these kids will be comfortable and warm. In the past, this much shelter was not needed, as our numbers were normally lower.

However, as we are sitting on close to 30 horses and the weather is already going to be brutal, we need to get the extra shelters set up. Especially as we are (hopefully) heading out to get more.

The (4 legged) kids are also eating us out of house and home. We need to order more hay, grain, milk pellets etc. and are now heading to WA, IF we can save these babies. This will mean more vetting etc. (It was over $500 for the last 5). As our coffers were nearly wiped out with the 71 needing so much special feed, milk pellets, vetting etc., we need to get back on track.

Please help us save these lives and prepare for the upcoming winter. We need your help and together, as always, we can “git ‘er done” and keep saving lives.

Thank you from all the horse kids and the rest of the critters. Your donation makes a difference. Every single penny adds up, and it is clear that when we all come together, we CAN make a difference. THANK YOU!!

Wild horses betrayed…but the fight goes on!

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

I have devastating news. The Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA, and Return to Freedom, who made promises to protect horses, just betrayed America’s mustangs and burros.

Today, at the behest of those organizations and the livestock industry lobbyists they allied with, the Senate Appropriations Committee funded a $35 million increase for the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program. The appropriation is part of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Interior Department spending bill unveiled today.

The funds are targeted for implementation of the unprecedented mass roundup, removal, and radical population suppression plan that the groups, along with the cattlemen, support.

We’re ready to fight back.

There are no restrictions on how the BLM can spend the new money. With this nearly 50% increase in the program budget, it’s clear what the BLM will do. Thousands more wild horses will be rounded up with helicopters, ripping them from their families and homes on our public lands. Those who remain free will be subjected to brutal sterilization surgeries that will destroy their wild behaviors and threaten their very lives. The future of America’s wild free-roaming herds will be in jeopardy when populations are reduced to genetically non-viable levels.

Don’t be fooled by the deceptive promotion of the plan as “non-lethal.” The bill language prohibits slaughter for a year, but the plan makes that horrific outcome more likely as holding pens swell with tens of thousands more horses and no guarantee of funding for their safety or long-term care.

But don’t despair. This is a setback, but not the end of the battle.

There’s a long process ahead before this becomes law – if it ever does. Congress may choose to fund the government in FY 20 by passing a Continuing Resolution instead of a spending bill. And the BLM will have many hurdles to cross before accelerating the roundups and implementing inhumane management tools.

That means this fight goes on.

With your continued support, we will fight those who betray our wild horses and burros. We’ll fight them in court. We’ll fight them in Congress. We’ll expose the backroom deal that sold out our mustangs. We won’t rest. With your continued support, we won’t stop until our mustangs are safe.

In Freedom,

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Quick update: Yesterday, the Senate Interior Appropriations subcommitee unanimously approved the spending bill and sent it to the full committee for a vote on Thursday.

Unfortunately, the subcommitee still has not released the text of the actual bill.

We may not know until Thursday what’s in it, but we can’t rest until the votes have been cast. We need your help right now to contact key Senators in the remaining 24 hours before the hearing! Scroll down for a list of Senators and our suggested brief message.

Thursday’s decision will dictate our next steps, and we have to remain vigilant.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

There’s a lot at stake for wild horses and burros this week on Capitol Hill. The Senate will unveil its Fiscal Year 2020 Interior Appropriations bill at a subcommittee hearing on Tuesday and a full committee hearing on Thursday.

That means we only have a few days left to oppose funding for the dangerous cattlemen’s plan that will destroy America’s wild free-roaming herds.

If you do nothing else today, please pick up the phone now to contact your Senator at 202-224-3121 as well as the key Senators below. Tell them:

“Hello. I’m calling to ask the Senator to oppose funding in FY20 Appropriations for the cattlemen’s plan for America’s wild horses and burros. I don’t want my tax dollars spent on mass roundups that will lead to eventual slaughter or on cruel sterilization surgeries. Please don’t throw more money at a failed program that has shown no ability to reform. Thank you.”

  • Senator Lisa Murkowski, (202) 224-6665 or (907) 271-3735
  • Senator Tom Udall, (202) 224-6621 or (505) 346-6791
  • Senator Susan Collins, (202) 224-2523 or (207) 780-3575
  • Senator Lindsay Graham, (202) 224-5972 or (803) 933-0112

  • Senator Patrick Leahy, (202) 224-4242 or (802) 863-2525

  • Senator Jack Reed, (202) 224-4642 or (401) 528-5200

After you make the call, please take one moment to send this automated tweet.

We must amplify our voices now! There’s too much at stake not to act.

Thank you for speaking up for America’s wild horses!
