It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018: 

Quinn and Blaze

Quinn & Blaze came to AAE when their family was preparing to downsize. Fortunately, Quinn and Blaze’s family were planning ahead, and when space became available, AAE was able to help, which is often not the case.  Quinn and Blaze were in good condition when they arrived.
Quinn was a very fancy 23-year-old half Arab (registered) and half Saddlebred mare. She had a mild injury to her front right leg but, was lightly ridable in the past. Quinn was a sweet ol’ girl that tended to be higher energy and a bit impatient. She was trained English and Western in the distant past, and she spent time in the arena and on trails.  However, she had not been ridden for about 5 years.  Back in the day, Quinn was forward on trail and loved to go!  Quinn was a bit more complicated and needed an experienced person.
Not long after arrival, Quinn’s teeth were floated and hooves were trimmed.  She was dewormed and vaccines were updated.  She was also evaluated by our vet and okayed for light riding.  Quinn was on the lean side and not gaining weight, and she had some hock sores that were not healing.  Subsequent blood work showed she was positive for Cushing’s, and she was started on daily medication.
Blaze was a very handsome 21-ish year old (~1996) Arabian gelding.  Blaze had no formal training, but he was used as an occasional trail horse.  He hadn’t been ridden for about 5 years.  Shortly before coming to AAE, he suffered a mild bout of laminitis.
 
Not long after arrival, Blaze’s teeth were also floated, and hooves were trimmed.  He was dewormed, and vaccines were updated.   Blaze’s hooves had much improved, and he was doing very well.
Quinn and Blaze had been together for several years, and they were bonded seniors.  Fortunately, the stars aligned, and they were adopted together into their forever home.  Their adopters are a horse experienced home with two young children.  They were looking forward to the companionship of horses again and what a perfect opportunity for these two!
Quinn and Blaze’s adoption took them to Paradise, CA.  In November, the Camp Fire devastated the town of Paradise.  Most homes were destroyed and the community has been displaced.  Through the darkness, there is light. We are relieved and happy to report Quinn, Blaze, and their family are safe!
Our hearts goes out to everyone that was impacted.

The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue:

December 6, 2018

Ears the news…

Whereupon our Fearless Leader Falls

In the early morning hours on Saturday, November 24th, walking through her living room Ann stepped on German Shepherd Jack’s tail which abruptly knocked her off her feet resulting in a spectacular but very damaging fall.

In extreme pain and unable to move, Jeff came to the rescue and got Ann into the car and off to the Emergency Room. Five hours, and many Xrays and CT scans later, the extent of her injuries was still unclear but a couple appointments and casts later it turns out Ann sustained a torn ligament and fibula twist fracture and could be off her feet for up to 3 months.

The accident has left our fearless leader in pain and on crutches making it challenging or impossible for her to do the simplest of living skills such as shower, dress, drive, or carry a cup of coffee to the kitchen table. Furthermore, it has a HUGE impact on the rescue since Ann typically spends a good portion of her day outside caring for the animals.

With Ann house-bound, several volunteers have stepped up to temporarily fill in with feeding, watering, grooming, mucking and generally overseeing the rescue’s current long-ear residents.

A hearty thanks to SYA volunteers Pomme, Andria Elliot, and employee Hannah Exel who have picked up the slack.

Such a setback going into winter is hard and SYALER certainly can’t expect volunteers to continue to show up every day for the next 12 weeks as the days get colder, the pathways get icy and more snow falls. We need to compensate people who are willing to work to keep the animals safe and healthy, but paying for extra barn help is a big unexpected drain on SYA’s budget.

I am therefore appealing to you today to GO to the DONATE button and consider giving whatever you can to assure we keep the farm purring while Ann heals.

Many thanks!

-Elise Paffrath

SYALER board member

p.s. This injury is a tough blow to our intrepid CEO in part because she’s being forced to accept a lot of help (not something she’s always good at), but Ann will be so grateful and relieved knowing that extra workers are being compensated through the long haul ahead.

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018: 

Dixie, Patsy, Kitty, June and Dolly

AE welcomed this group of five girls, Dixie, Patsy, Kitty, June and Dolly, from the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary on Feb 28, 2018.  AAE has been supporting the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary’s recovery and herd reduction efforts since April 2017, after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016.
All five of these young girls spent some time at the Monty Roberts International Learning Centerfor gentling and learning basic groundwork before arriving at AAE.  All accepted haltering on arrival, some better than others, and they all still needed considerable time building trust and confidence. Dolly, Dixie and Kitty later returned to MRILC for participation in additional courses and further development.  They were all introduced to ground driving and a saddle (no rider).  All three did quite well.
DIXIE
Dixie is a nice looking and well-built, 7-year old-ish mustang mare.  She came back the “Most Improved” of this class.  She returned a different horse, much more calm, confident, and social.  She shows steady improvement.  She halters, leads, and loads.  Handling her hooves and working with the farrier are still a work in progress.   Dixie is looking for her forever home with a mustang experienced person.  She is a dominant mare, which should be considered in her future home.  Dixie was brought current earlier this year with dental and hoof care, vaccines and deworming, and she has a microchip in place.
 
KITTY
Kitty is a cute, little, 6-year old-ish shy, somewhat passive mustang mare.  She halters, lead, and loads, and she is good with her hooves and farrier.  She still needs confidence, but she’s improving along the way.  She has been easily pushed around by other horses, but she is finding her place, but really just wants to just be.  Kitty is looking for her forever home with a person with mustang experience.  Kitty was brought current earlier this year with dental and hoof care, vaccines and deworming,
and she has a microchip in place.
 
DOLLY
Dolly is a sweet, gentle 2-3 year old mustang filly.  She returned from MRILC all the better.  She is confident, calm, and social.  She is soft, kind, and willing, with a growing curiosity that needs to be nurtured so this girl can shine. Dolly is on the lower end of the hierarchy in herd dynamics.  Dolly was brought current earlier this year with dental and hoof care, vaccines and deworming, and she has a microchip in place.
Dolly has an adoption pending!!
PATSY
Patsy is a curious, but somewhat shy 3-4 year old mustang filly.  She has a dominant tenancy in the herd.  She is building confidence, but needs more trust building.  She has an inquisitive mind, and wants to please.  Patsy needs a patient person to nurture her curiosity and confidence.  She halters, leads, and loads, but handling her hooves and farrier are still a work in progress. Patsy was brought current earlier this year with dental and hoof care, vaccines and deworming, and she has a microchip in place.
Patsy has an adoption pending!!
These girls have all shown steady progress, and all will benefit from more
consistent and daily handling.  The right homes for Dixie and Kitty will be with individuals with mustang experience; patient persons willing to commit the time and consistent efforts to bring their sweet girl along
JUNE
June’s story is a little different.  June is a 5-year old-ish mustang mare.  Not long after arrival earlier this year, little June’s belly suddenly ballooned in a matter of days.  She delivered her colt, Johnny, on April 20, 2018.  She had a difficult delivery, but thankfully, she and Johnny had a good vet.  June got some down time to settle in at AAE and enjoy her lil’ guy.  June was the most mellow and willing of the group.  She is a sweet, gentle mare that is on the lower end of the hierarchy in the herd environment; though recently, that seems to be changing.  Her confidence is growing!  She is soft and kind, while a little aloof. June has low fetlocks and should not be considered for more than a light riding prospect, at best. She halters, leads, and loads, but handling her hooves and farrier are still a work in progress.

June was brought current earlier this year with vaccines, deworming, and hoof and dental care, and she has a microchip in place. Her hooves are still a work in progress, but she did fairly well with the farrier for her two trims.  June is looking for a mustang experienced home; someone with patience to give her the time and leadership she needs!
JOHNNY
As soon as he was ready, Little Johnny was gelded, and adopted shortly after to a wonderful home where he’s buddy to a filly his same age.
This pic was him hanging out with Uncle Blue, not too long before adoption.
Do you have room for a horse in need of a home??
If you are not able to adopt, but want to help support one of these sweet girls until they move on to their forever home, consider sponsoring.

Two big steps to protect California’s wild horses

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Last month, 932 wild horses were rounded up by the U.S. Forest Service in the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in California – with a portion to be sold for $1 a piece, by the truckload, with no limitation on slaughter.

We can’t let this happen. Our team has been working around the clock to save these horses from slaughter. Now, we have two big updates:

  • On Tuesday, California Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) introduced legislation to protect the state’s wild and domestic horses from slaughter. We’re working closely with his office to create and pass a strong bill to accomplish this goal.
  • Last week, our legal team filed a motion for preliminary injunctionin federal court to block the Forest Service’s slaughter plan, which clearly violates state and federal law. We’re asking the court to prohibit the government from selling horses without limitation, which it currently plans to start on January 15.

We are doing everything possible to protect our wild horses from slaughter. But we need your help to carry on this critically important work.

Can you donate $50, $100 or more to support our efforts?

Thanks for helping us defend California’s horses. We’ll keep you updated on this breaking situation.

Thanks,

Suzanne

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018: 

Amigo, Rudy and Gunner

Your support in 2018 probably had the biggest impact in the lives of our next intake group: Amigo, Rudy, and Gunner. These three boys came to AAE in mid-January 2018 from a neglect situation.  Amigo and Rudy were in very poor condition. Fortunately, Gunner was in pretty good condition.  This is a long one, enjoy!

AMIGO

Amigo weighed about 850 pounds upon arrival.  As thin as he looked in photos, he was much thinner.  His coat was thick with dead undercoat that felt like a wool rug draped over his bony skeleton beneath.  He was also covered with hundreds of ticks that took days to remove.
We were told he’s 29. We were told he was a riding horse, but bucks after a couple hours (at his age, I’m sure he’s saying, enough already!). Other than that, the rest is a mystery.
   
Thankfully, Amigo’s vet check went surprisingly well, and he was started on a slow refeeding program consistent with UC Davis’ protocol for rehabilitating starved horses.  After about a week at AAE, he had what turned out to be a minor bout of colic; when he went down, we didn’t think he would get up.  This pic is worth 1,000 words.
Fortunately, the docs were heroic that night, and he rallied! He battled through it like the survivor he is, and has been great ever since!
Though emaciated and starving, it was plain as day this ol’ guy had a heart of gold.  His journey to recovery was a slow one, but he made steady progress, day after day.
He craved attention and simply enjoyed being in the presence of humans.  He would munch on food with his skinny head peaking out of his stall, bright-eyed with a big ol’ smile on his face. “Hey, come gimme some lovin'”
Amigo is such a great reminder of how fragile yet resilient horses are. He holds no grudges for humans, even though he wasn’t treated so kind. Once he gained some weight and stabilize, his teeth were floated, hooves were trimmed, and vaccines were updated and he was dewormed.  He was slowly coming back to health.
Amigo has returned to good health, and he’s in great condition for 29-something. There could not be a more sweet, kind, lovable old fella!  This guy is an absolute gem, and a volunteer favorite.  We LOVE this ol’ guy and everything about him.
Amigo is such an ambassador for horses with new volunteers. He’s just a big love! He couldn’t be more easy to handle. He is patient, he’s kind, and he’s one of the most dependable horses at AAE. At 29, this ol’ guy can call AAE home, his last stop.

Amigo needs a sponsor.

RUDY

Rudy has a story, too. Though he wasn’t in quite as bad of shape as Amigo, he was in sad shape. We were told he was about 23 years old, and had been ridden quite a bit. He had been used for barrel racing.  Beyond that, little is known about his past.
Rudy weighed only about 875 pounds when he arrived.  He was also covered with ticks, but not as heavily as Amigo.
His teeth were in bad shape, too. His hooves hadn’t been cared for in quite some time, and heal had deep heal cracks with open sores in all four. Rudy was simply “empty”.
Rudy was started on a slow refeeding program consistent with UC Davis’ protocol for rehabilitating starved horses.  His teeth had also been neglected, but he was given time to stabilize and gain a bit of weight.
Though emaciated and starving, Rudy was a really kind guy, but his focus was on his next meal.  He seemed to enjoy attention, but he was indifferent at times, especially if there was food in his proximity.

He’s had regular farrier work, but his heel cracks persist. He had much needed dental work, he’s been dewormed, and his vaccines were updated.

Rudy has been saddled and ridden lightly. He’s soft and willing under saddle, but his hooves are still an issue. They are making slow improvement, but need more time.
This ‘ol guy is another sweet ‘ol soul and handsome as ever.

GUNNER

Gunner looked pretty much like a normal horses. It was hard to believe he had been living with Amigo and Rudy. We were told Gunner was about 19 years old, and he had been started under saddle, but never finished.
Gunner had some trust issues and it took a bit to earn his trust.  He was evasive for haltering, though led fairly well. This guy needed more confidence; and he seemed so vulnerable with leg and hoof handling, His teeth were floated, hooves trimmed, and vaccines updated.
Gunner, is a shy guy that appears to have been mis-handled at some point in life.  He is halterable, curious, gentle, and willing.  Gunner has made consistent progress, and he’s become more much more willing to interact with humans.   He’s starting to seek attention. He’s softened considerably, and so far, we haven’t identified any major issues.
Gunner is temporarily fostered with one of AAE’s adopters so we could help a couple more horses this winter.  He has been hanging out with cows, and recently, he showed his gentler, nurturing side when he nuzzled up with a newborn calf.  How sweet is that!
This handsome guy is looking for a home with experience with horses with trust issues.  He’s healthy, willing, and seems to have some good years for someone willing to give him the time he needs to trust and flourish. Gunner is up to date with vaccines, deworming, and hoof and dental care.

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018: 

Dia and Noche

Dia came to AAE with her buddy Noche on January 14, 2018.  Her owner lived alone and was experiencing a major health issue.  She was unable manage the physical requirements of caring for her two horses.  These two girls were delivered to AAE by a friend, and they unloaded from the trailer like it was just another day.  Ho hum!
Noche appeared to be in good health.  She was a 20 year old Quarter Horse/Paso Fino mare in good condition, and very easy to handle.  She was about 13.2 hh, and we just loved her lil’ legs!! She was scheduled for updating dental, vaccines, and farrier.  She was a gem, soooo good with the vet and farrier, and she loved grooming and attention.  Noche was going to make someone a fabulous pony.
Dia was a super cute little (~14.0 hh), 21 year old Arabian mare.  She had a history of showing successfully in halter, and her easy going temperament occasionally allowed someone to hop on and head down the trail, even though she had no formal training.  Her prior owner indicated she had not been ridden a lot, but she took it all in stride and did quite well.  She also said she could benefit from some chiropractic work, and might be suitable for light riding. Dia was on the thin side, but it might have been because lil’ Noche was tubby Noche.

Dia’s was also vet checked and her dental, vaccines and hoof care were updated.  Her vet check went pretty well.  She had multiple melanomas under, around, and on her tail and a few in other areas. Did I say multiple?  I meant a lot!  They’re often not a problem, but she had two around her rectal area that needed to be removed.  One was ulcerated and painful, and flies would be a big nuisance if left alone.  The other was internal, on or near her anal sphincter, and it was golf ball sized.  It was pushing her rectum to the side.  If not removed, it would likely continue to grow and push more into the rectum and block the passage of manure.  Dia also had a melanoma in the corner of her mouth on the left side.  This one was removed so she could comfortably wear a bit, should she be ridden with a bit in the future.  Last, but not least, she had a large melanoma on her hip area.  It was raised and in an area where it would be easy to catch on gates or other things she brushed against, an injury ready to happen.  Though it wasn’t ulcerated or otherwise an issue, it made sense to remove when the others were removed.  The melanomas were removed and she recovered nicely, thought he hip area was deep and healing would take time.  Dia was easy to handle; she was good with the farrier; and she also enjoy grooming and attention.

Dentals done, vaccines updated, hoof care completed, deworming done, ready for adoption.  Fortunately, Noche and Dia came at just the right time; they were perfect for an adopter waiting for a couple nice horses that could be grand-baby ponies!  They are now with their forever family, and they have little girls of their own.

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018: 

Gentry and Foley

AAE welcomed Gentry, a pretty young mare, and Foley, her little “red” colt from the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary in September 2017. AAE has been supporting the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary’s recovery and herd reduction efforts since April 2017. DreamCatcher has been in a recovery period after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016.
What a cute “little” pair they were.  Gentry was an attentive mom, but also a kid herself.  When they arrived, young Foley seemed a bit lethargic and small for his age, but mom was small, too. They were vet checked shortly after arrival, and no issues found.
After a few weeks at AAE, Foley’s energy level increased, and he was finally running and bucking through his paddock, like baby boys do.  That being said, he was still a super calm, easy-going gentleman for such a young squirt.  Gentry had only recently been introduced to humans when she arrived, so she was a bit shy and unsure about the new humans that were caring for her.
She learned quickly that humans were not so scary, and she knew they were the ones with the good stuff.  She always waited patiently at feeding time. Thankfully, she learned good manners early on.  Her dental exam indicated she was only about 2-1/2 years old.  A baby with a baby, but she was such a good mama.
It was easy to see Gentry and Foley quickly become lovely young horses.  Gentry found her forever home in January 2018, and she is on a path to becoming a wonderful lil’ riding partner.
Of course, there was trouble in paradise!  At the vet exam, we discovered Foley had an undescended testicle (crypt orchid), and it wasn’t going to be a simple process to make him an adoptable gelding.  He had to have a more complicated surgery in the hospital in sterile conditions in case his little “gem” was up in his abdomen.  We decided to wait a few months to see if gravity would take it’s course and encourage the little gem to drop.  Unfortunately, no such luck.  Foley was castrated in the hospital, and he has been waiting for his forever home since he recovered.
This little guy is one of the nicest, sweetest, respectful most of the time little gents, and we can’t believe he is STILL here.  Any experienced horse peeps out there looking for a super fun, straight forward little project pony will not be disappointed!  He is handsome and well built to boot.  He stands about 13.0 hh.
Foley halters and leads easily, he enjoys grooming and attention, he is good with his hooves, and he stands fairly quietly for the farrier.  Foley is a handsome, level-headed youngster, and he is a very social, “meet you at the gate” kind of guy.  He is a quick learner that is eager to please and a quick learner. Foley stands about 13.0 hh, and he will likely mature to a pony-sized, 13.2 to 14.0hh. Mom was about 14.0 hh.  Foley is ready for his new home.  He is an uncomplicated guy with a clean slate.
Might you be his Christmas gift of a forever home??  
Foley is up to date w/vaccines, deworming, and hoof care.  His DNA show results included Turkoman, Mangalarga Marchador and Icelandic Horse, and he has a microchip in place.
Foley needs a sponsor.

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018: 

 

Sandi

Sandi came to AAE on January 7, 2018, after her family was experiencing a family health and financial crisis.  Sandi was a 5 year old Arabian mare that had some training but was considered a green horse.
We picked Sandi up from her boarding facility in the midst of winter stormy weather.  The facility owner said she had been moved to the round pen because she ran right through electric fencing, “very hot” electric fencing.  Sadly, we found this very cute, but skinny lil’ mare enduring the winter elements with no shelter, no wind break, and no food.  We can’t help but wonder if she was in the round pen because her owner was months behind in rent, or maybe she braved the “hot” fence because she was cold and needed food. Sandi loaded quietly, but she didn’t travel well.  She danced around in the trailer the entire ride to AAE, and graceful she was not.
Once at AAE, she had a difficult time settling into a paddock, alone.  She paced the fence lines creating ditches along her path, but with a little time and some rearranging, she calmed some and focused on food. Thankfully, her vet check went well fairly well.  Besides her lack of weight, she had a few melanomas under/around her tail, not uncommon for white (gray) horses.  Fortunately, none were creating any issues that required removal.  Sandi’s teeth were floated.  She had two large wolf teeth; no wonder her prior owner said she was unmanageable with a bit in her mouth.  Her hooves were trimmed and maintained, and she was dewormed and brought up to date with vaccines.
She made steady progress and began looking so beautiful.  She was a bit naughty for the farrier.  She needed some extra work with handling her hind hooves, and she needed a bit of confidence.  Sandi tended to rely on another horse for confidence, and she got very stressed and reactive when no other horse was around.  We worked on building her confidence before we asked much more of her.  Before long, she had gained weight, her coat grew in, and she looked like a princess horse.  Her confidence grew, and her stress diminished.  Next thing we knew, she started to glow.
Her forever person came to meet her and fell in love.  Sandi was adopted, and she is now a trail horse and partner to her best friend.
Sandi had a second chance because of you!

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018: 

RED

Red is an incredibly handsome 9 year old-ish grade gelding that initially came to AAE from another rescue situation after spending several months at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center (MRILC).  Red participated as a project horse for students during MRILC courses.  He was feral with limited human interaction when he arrived at MRILC, and it took tremendous time and effort overcoming fear and accepting humans.  He was socialized, learned basic groundwork and long-lining, and
he was introduced to a saddle (no rider).
Red was adopted by a youth adopter and family in Fall of 2016, but due to the realities of work and finances that come with adulthood, his young adopter was unable to continue to meet Red’s needs.  Red continued building trust and learning about saddle work, even carrying a rider a few times.
Red returned to AAE the beginning of January 2018.  His vet care was updated including floating teeth, vaccines, and deworming.  Not long after returning to AAE, Red suffered a pasture injury.  Veterinary exam indicated he ruptured his peroneus tertius tendon.  This usually happens when the hock is hyperextended, likely in a quick turn or change of direction.  Thankfully, it was a soft tissue injury, and not the ghastly fracture it appeared to be.  Red has been on stall rest the bulk of the year in hopes the tendon will heal.  Studies show a good percentage of horses recover to the same level of exercise, so we’re hoping for the best.  So far, he is recovering nicely, but still has another month or two before re-evaluation.
Red is a super kind and willing guy, but still has considerable difficulty accepting human interaction and trusting that no harm will come to him.  First contact with him is like 50 first dates.  Once he’s been touched, he is relatively easy to halter, and he seems to enjoy grooming.  Red does best with a very calm, confident, and patient person experienced with trust-building in feral/wild horses to help him achieve his potential.  For now, until he has completed stall rest, and we can resume working with him, his status will remain “In-Rehab”.  He’ll be re-evaluated for adoption as we move forward.
Your support helps horses like Red stay safe with AAE while they recover from injury and get the veterinary care they need.  Sadly, we hear of so many horses that are euthanized due to injuries and owners that have no interest in giving them the time needed to heal.

Action Needed! Congressional spending bill threatens wild horse protections

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

The deadline for Congress to finalize a government spending bill is December 7 – and some lawmakers are now trying to sneak changes into the bill that would remove protections for wild horses and burros from slaughter.

We have faced this threat numerous times in the past two years. At every critical moment, we have succeeded, but ONLY because this movement has mobilized. Don’t stop now.

Tell your Representatives to protect wild horses and burros from slaughter and cruel and untested sterilization methods:

Our opponents on both the Agriculture and Interior committees could make dangerous changes that could lead to horse slaughter for human consumption or cruel, untested sterilization experiments on mares.

The Hill calls these disputes “small-ball skirmishes” but we know they could be life or death for thousands of majestic creatures.

We need your help NOW to maintain protections for wild horses. Please contact your Representatives now!

Thanks,

AWHC Team

Thank you for making Giving Tuesday a success for wild horses. With your help, we hit our goal and unlocked our full $50,000 match!

The threats to wild horses have never been greater. But, with your help, 2018 has been one of our most successful years ever. Together, we succeeded in keeping slaughter prohibitions in the budget, protected wild mares from cruel sterilization procedures, and drew national attention to the cruel roundups across the West.

Thanks to your continued support, we’ll be able to keep up the fight wild horses and burros in the courtroom, in the halls of Congress, and in the field. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing all of the successes from the past year, and the fights still ahead.

Thank you for being with us as we continue to stand up for wild horses and burros.

Our match expires at midnight. That means you only have a few hours left to DOUBLE your impact for wild horses and burros. Please, donate before midnight to fuel all of our work.

– AWHC Team

This year has been one of our most successful in history. We’ve beaten back attempts to strip slaughter protections from the budget, won injunctions against cruel sterilization experiments, and worked with legislators to strengthen protections for horses and public lands. We’ve sued the federal government to demand that they uphold the law, the intent of Congress and the will of the American people to protect our wild horses and burros on our public lands.

We’ve accomplished so much this year — and we must continue to build on our success. Today is Giving Tuesday, and a generous donors has stepped up to MATCH every gift we receive up to $50,000 from now until midnight. Can you chip in now and have your impact DOUBLED?

We have ambitious plans for next year — keeping up our fights for wild horses and burros in the courtroom, in the halls of Congress, and in the field. We must prevent the sale of horses for slaughter, protect them from cruel, inhumane roundups, and ensure that their home on our public lands is secure.

November 26, 2018

Ears the news…

The snow is gently falling and I am looking up from my computer to see mules eating their hay out in the pasture. It’s so peaceful and makes my heart feel very full. I am fortunate to be able to do what I do. I would not however, be able to do it without the help of our team of thoughtful and generous donors. Yeah, it’s that time of year once again, when I need to reach out to ask for help to meet our year end fund raising goal.

We had many sick animals over the course of the year, requiring numerous vet visits and a lot of prescription and non-prescription medications. We have had our two big draft mules Nellie and Luke here for a year now and they sure do put away the groceries! We are all happy to see them in excellent body condition and good behavioral health. We know the perfect home will come along for them and we are more than happy to have them here until it does.

Due to these facts we need YOU to help us now, please. Our fund raising goal for this year is $35,000. This amount will ensure a barn full of hay and plenty of grain and supplements. It will allow for routine veterinary calls as well as an emergency should one occur, and to just keep up with the day to day expenses of running a rescue; vehicle maintenance, repairs to buildings and machinery, little things, like ensuring we have a professionally cleaned porta potty for visitors! There is so much involved and like all things the prices of what is needed keeps going up.

You will be hearing from me frequently in the upcoming weeks as I ask you to please check under those couch cushions, raid the piggy bank, and do what you can to help us meet our goal. Thank you!

ChEARS,

Ann

President & Shelter Manager

Today we put Thanks and Giving together for this global movement! This global day of giving is designed to give back to our communities and help those around us! Be the change you want to see in the world and help make a difference for the horses at AAE! We hope you can join us . This year our goal is $5000. This will help support the veterinary costs we incur for our horses throughout the year.  

With your support, horses like Rudy get a second chance .

Next to feed and supplement costs, 

AAE’s biggest annual expense is veterinary care.  
Your support helps provide needed veterinary care to assure the horses we take in are on a path to good health, and each horse’s health is understood.

Johnny’s are welcomed to the world.
 
Your support assures the horses at AAE are properly evaluated, receive appropriate care and treatment of health issues, and are properly addressed and/or maintained throughout the year.  This assures all suspect health issues are characterized appropriately and considered prior to adoption.
Your support meant a new life for Sandi  
Proper maintenance means providing annual vaccines, annual dental exams and floating/treatment, as needed (some more than once a year), hoof care about every eight weeks, and rotational deworming, usually every two to three months.  Additionally, all horses taken in at AAE are now microchipped, and DNA testing completed. 
 
You can help assure horses like Rascal have a chance a life
So far this year, your support has ensured:
  • 34 horses in need have been helped
  • 17 have found forever homes
  • 8 foals became weanlings looking for forever homes

15 + ORPHANS WAITING TO BE PICKED UP! THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW! Plus, an Update to BELL’AS LEGACY

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another 911 call. Literally just got off the phone a minute ago. We have 15 MORE Yakama foals who need help RIGHT NOW.

I so wish it would snow about 20 feet so all the catchers would stop catching horses.But wishes won’t save lives, so once again we are asking YOU to help us save these innocent babies. Their families have already shipped to slaughter, so time is of the essence.

Let’s make it a Merry Christmas for these babies! They have already lost their families, and they deserve every happiness there is. If you have that special someone who has everything, why not donate to save one of these foals and do it in their name? Give them the best Christmas ever, give them the gift of saving a life!

As always, we will need to get to WA, purchase and pick up the foals, get them vetted, their health certs and then transport them to where they are going. With so much heartbreak out there, we know that folks have been donating like crazy to the fire victims. But we still have to ask for the babies. Will you save them? We simply cannot do it without funding. These babies need your help!

As far as I know there are 15 for sure?, and maybe 16. We will save as many as we can, but we have to base that on the funds we can raise for this effort. We simply cannot save babies that we cannot care for and find homes for.

So PLEASE, help these foals today! ALL OF THEIR LIVES MATTER!

An update on BELLA’S LEGACY – GOT HAY. Thanks to your beautiful hearts, we were able to raise ($3219.62 via paypal, $30 check, $430 via gofundme) for a total of $3669.62 for purchasing hay and getting it to CA. We will be delivering half of the hay to the Camp Fire victims in the next week or so, (but will have to work around these new babies and the weather). We are still working on getting the most bang for your buck and getting the most hay possible to the critters that survived the fire. The horses that are still here with us at Chilly Pepper, also send their thanks and appreciation for their hay.

The photo’s shown are some of the lives y’all have already saved. The new babies are a bit bigger, and often not as quickly adopted out. But they are anxiously awaiting their new homes. LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

THANK YOU as always for making sure these babies have a chance. God bless!
