The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We have another exciting AWHC win this week! SJR3, the resolution calling for the roundup of more than 40,000 Nevada wild horses and burros, is dead! 

The resolution did not advance out of the Nevada Senate Committee on Natural Resources for a Senate floor vote by yesterday’s deadline. This is good news! While the resolution did include AWHC’s amendment to prioritize funding for humane fertility control over mass removals, it still contained problematic language blaming wild horses for damage to public lands caused by livestock grazing and other commercial activities.

If SJR3 as originally written had passed, the Nevada Legislature would have asked Congress to fund an 85% reduction in Nevada’s wild horse herds. And, as the state where over half of America’s wild horses reside, Nevada’s voice on this issue is very influential in Congress. That’s why the defeat of SJR3 is very important.

We wanted to say thank you on behalf of AWHC and Nevada’s wild horses and burros. 

Thanks to everyone who weighed in against this resolution and made wild horses a top issue in the Nevada legislature, currently second only to guns!

But Erica, even though SJR3 has been killed, our work is not over. AWHC is continuing our fight to protect wild horses and burros all over the West — with several other legislative and legal battles happening across the country right now.

If you’d like to make a donation to help us gather the resources necessary to continue this fight, thank you — you can use the button below to do so. If you’re unable to make a donation at this time, no worries — we’re grateful for your help in protecting the wild horses and burros of Nevada. Please stay tuned for more updates!

BABIES, BABIES, BABIES! THEY JUST KEEP COMING – FIFTEEN (15) INJURED AND/OR DEHYDRATED BABIES IN THE LAST MONTH

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Meet “FIREFLY”.

This beautiful girl was roped to the point of having raw, infected wounds on her neck. She was trampled and smashed into something hard enough to cause permanent???? damage to her jaw. She cannot chew correctly, has a huge swollen area on the side of her face, her lip hangs almost as if she has permanent nerve damage and obviously she came in terrified.

The phone keeps ringing. In the middle of one emergency, we get another call!

I realize we have had a lot of “emergencies”, but sadly that means we have had a lot or orphaned, injured and dehydrated babies. Not one single baby has come in healthy. The vet bills are climbing every day.

The average cost to care for a baby is approximately $21 per day!
This does NOT include vet bills, medications, etc. etc.

Y’all saved – Vance aka Vanessa, Captain, Trey, Tessa, Lucky, Chrome, Brian, Joey, Scooter, Firefly, Radar, Trooper, Tucker, Lil Red & Nicholas, and Lucy the Lamb.

Adopted (New Mama’s – see below) Chrome, Scooter, Brian & Joey
Trooper (RIP)
Nicholas – adopted (follow on our adopter’s page)
Tucker & Lil Red (“Dustin’ Time Rescue” in Pocatello)

7 With me at CampTessa, Firefly, Lucky, Radar, Vance (aka Vanessa), Trey, Captain.

Thank you for helping save these 15 precious souls. Sadly however, most all of them have required extra vet care and medications. We are going through well OVER $140 a day in supplies with milk powder, shaving etc. This does NOT include vetting, Coggins, health certs, brand inspections etc.

Thankfully I have wonderful folks taking care of everything in NV, but that is also a big expense. (A huge % of what they do is on a volunteer basis, but it still is a large expense out of the budget.)

I So appreciate all of our Chilly Pepper Family! YOU are the reason ALL of these babies are safe or no longer suffering so much. THANK YOU!!

Please remember, If I don’t ask for help, I cannot help the babies and they will not survive. It’s all about the horses!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

ANOTHER 911 !!

The phone keeps ringing. In the middle of one emergency, we get another.

Sadly, my beautiful boy “Trooper”, who came with a dry mare, arrived too late to help. (It was the wrong mare). He lost his life due to starvation and a lack of Colostrum. By the time I got him, there was no hope, although I didn’t know it right away. I knew he was fragile, but have to say it was still shocking how quickly he crashed. The internal damage was already done, and he never stood a chance. We got him late afternoon, gave him his colostrum, got him stabilized, he drank his milk and he seemed to be resting quietly. No fever, and by 3 a.m. we were at WSU Emergency Vet Hospital, (3.5 hours away). His short life on this earth was full of pain and sickness. Thankfully once we got him he at least had some pain relief and a full belly. Never ever give anything prior to Colostrum, and it has to be soon, without delay, after being born.

I had not even arrived back at camp when the phone rang. Another new orphan, this time 2 or 3 days old? Brian was dehydrated and horribly constipated. We made it through the night and he is doing better than when he came in. He will see the vet today.

Hours later – (today) – ANOTHER call. 2 more day old babies needed our help.

Vet was just here. Two of the boys are hanging in there; however the 3rd little colt is very fragile, and needs so many prayers. He is on antibiotics and will be monitored 24.7 Like Doc said, they can be fine one minute and crashed the next. So many folks don’t realize that they can look “good”, but inside it’s a different story. These babies are ULTRA fragile, especially when they are only days old.

These critical cases are not only hard, but very expensive. We are still not caught up from the last few rescues and all the vet bills those babies incurred.

These precious boys are going through our supplies quickly. We really appreciate any help. I am currently on stand by for more babies, and right now the focus is to keep these boys alive and get them stable.

Lucky is coming home. Sadly he did not bond with his new Mommy. She adored him, but he simply wasn’t interested. We have done hundreds and hundreds of foals, and seen this quite often. When a baby is pushed out by the band, it is usually a terrifying experience, and they often take a long time to see adult horses as safe. He plays horsey games with Tyler, (our mini), and he and the baby Brian will be keeping each other company.

One of these precious babies will get the Mama that would have been Lucky’s. She was ultra patient and loving. It will just be a matter of time until Lucky can be comfortable with the big guys.

I couldn’t say no to these precious boys. Please help if you will.

Want to say thank you to the folks who helped with Trooper. Such heartbreak, but so grateful his last hours were as they should be. Peace full, a full belly and knowing so much love.

It looks like “the season is HERE!” I can’t do it without you. Please help me keep on doing this work God puts in front of me.

So appreciate all of our Chilly Pepper Family!

URGENT HELP NEEDED – ANOTHER CALL – DRY MARE WITH A 10 HOUR? OLD COLT NEED YOUR HELP ASAP! TRAILER ON THE WAY!!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

b

As my heart was breaking into a million tiny pieces, I unloaded Lucky from our trailer into Bev’s trailer. After 25 days of literally 24/7 – constant care, our beautiful LUCKY is still with us. He survived so many crashes by the Grace of God!

He has a vet coming today or tomorrow to his new place, and he will be hooked up with a real “horsey Mama” at our friend Bev’s. Loading him into another trailer and watching him drive away nearly dropped me to my knees.

My tears had not even stopped when the phone rang. Another 911. This time for a 10 hour old? little foal who has not had a drop of Colostrum and sadly a tiny bit of milk. He/she is on his way with his skinny Mama to see if we can possibly save him. No one knew the mare was pregnant. She is wormy and skinny and losing hair so it is pretty clear he did not get everything he needed in the early stages of his development. Baby is already starting to fail, so he/she will also need lots of prayers.

I have not had a chance to assess Mama or baby yet, but I do know we are looking at some serious 24/7, round the clock care, and some hefty vet bills. He/she will get colostrum as soon as he gets here, and the vet is already on notice that they are arriving. He/she will need his IGG levels checked and very likely a Plasma Transfusion.

We need to stock up on hay, more milk powder, Colostrum etc. _Funds are scarily depleted and I am praying y’all want to step up and help us get the baby and his Mama whatever care they need._ The season is just starting, and as I said, I hadn’t even returned from delivering Lucky when the call came in.

IT’S GO TIME, and there is nothing to indicate this year will be any easier than last year. PLEASE DONATE if you can and share. Chilly Pepper has quite a few special needs that have to stay on permanently, and they love their feed, vet care etc.

The babies have gone through nearly ALL the milk. ANY help is much appreciated. Anyone who wants to donate directly to vet bills can simply call Harrah Veterinary at 509-848-2943 and donate ANY amount towards our ongoing bills. Just tell them it’s for Palomino – Chilly Pepper. You can also donate to Zimmerman Vet in Winnemucca. 775-623-0981. We have incurred so many bills from this last group of babies, health certs, geldings, tubings, iv’s etc.

As always, YOU are the ones who keep this going. We are just hitting the busy time and I am praying I get to go home for a couple of weeks. These last babies have already gone through hundreds of dollars of milk, enemas, meds and supplies.

Join us in celebrating 2 years of our PZP Program!

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Today marks 2 years since we relaunched our PZP fertility control program in the Virginia Range in Nevada. We can’t believe it’s been 2 years already! 

Porcine Zona Pellucida (PZP) is a scientifically-proven fertility control vaccine given to female horses on the range through an injection via remote darting with an air rifle. It’s administered in a two shot process — the first is a primer, which is then followed by a booster approximately two weeks later. The vaccine prevents fertilization and pregnancy via an immune response that does not affect the horse’s hormonal system.

The result is a humane and cost efficient way to control wild horse populations, rather than subjecting wild horses to brutal helicopter roundups!

But these successes are only possible because of the continued support of people like you. Will you make a donation today to help us continue our PZP program and our other important research to protect wild horses and burros?


Johnny, an AWHC volunteer darting a mare.

We signed our Virginia Range Fertility Control Cooperative Agreement with the Nevada Department of Agriculture 2 years ago, today, with support from Nevada Assemblyman Jim Wheeler, Blockchains CEO Jeff Berns and Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak. And Erica, we’re happy to report that we’ve celebrated some pretty big successes since then! 

Take a look below at some of our PZP program’s successes to date:

Total Treatments administered: 3,552 Total mares treated: 1,416 Number of horses in our database: 3,300 wild horses Total number of volunteers: : Approximately 35 volunteers Volunteer hours spent: Over 21,300  to date  Number of properties we have permission to dart on: 80+ properties including a massive amount of BLM.

Right now, we are early into foaling season, Erica, but so far we are trending with 62% fewer foals born on the Range compared to this time last year. Even better, the current numbers reflect a zero population growth, which is fantastic given our goal of humane population reduction in this herd whose habitat has been dramatically reduced by development! These numbers will continue to fluctuate and change as we get further into foaling season, but it is a very promising start.

Will you help us to continue the successes of our PZP program with a donation today? A contribution of $30 or more will help us prevent removals and keep the historic Virginia Range wild horse herd wild and humanely managed on the range!

Exciting Announcements from AAE!

Gamilah Unbridled, The Journey Starts Today

We’ve got some exciting news! Patrick Sullivan of Modern Day Horsemanship will be visiting AAE April 8-12.

Patrick and his beloved horse, Gamilah (or Gami), are kicking off an epic adventure across America in pursuit of LIBERTY! It starts TODAY! Patrick and Gami have an incredibly special bond, and he wants to share it with you in his journey of a lifetime, Gamilah Unbridled. Their journey will take them 2500 miles across Highway 50, from California to Kentucky, as they promote the art of liberty, connecting with horses without the use of ropes or control devices. The most remarkable part their journey is Patrick will be riding Gami bareback AND bridleless the entire way.

As much as we’d like to invite everyone to participate, due to COVID-19 and other circumstances, this is a private training activity at AAE. However, Patrick’s journey will be shared via livestream and video on his Facebook Page, Gamilah Unbridled.

Because Patrick’s love of horses was molded by his experience working as a trainer at WindyHill Equine Rescue and Rehoming, Patrick wants to feature the work rescues do. Patrick selected one rescue in each state to stop and spend five days working with five horses to share what he and Gami have learned about the liberty training. All education and work along the way will be FREE of charge to the organizations, and donations during these events will go to each individual non-profit!

The deep connection between horses and humans is what inspires our every day work at AAE, and we are honored to be part of Patrick and Gami’s journey. The five lucky AAE horses selected to participate with Patrick are DieselJackClareChesney, and Teea. Patrick’s team will document each day, and by the end of the five days, we’ll see incredible results with each of the horses. Patrick and Gami’s adventure is dedicated to those who Dare to Dream. If you have a passion and love for horses, and you want to develop a deeper connection and stronger bond with your horse(s), be sure to follow their journey through social media. Feel free to send him a message, a word of encouragement, or a donation to help cover their expenses. You can even bring your horse out for a ride to join them for part of their trip, but be sure to contact Patrick directly.

Adoption Story: Ralphie

Ralphie arrived at AAE last October after his family could no longer manage his health issues. Thanks to your support, he was able to have life-saving surgery to remove his eye due to a cancerous mass on his lower right eyelid. He also had a mass removed from on his hind pastern. He seemed to be doing well post-op; unfortunately, complications arose only a few days after surgery. His eye orbit developed a hematoma and subsequently excessive drainage. He returned to the hospital for nine days. Once back at AAE, thanks to the outpouring of support he received from all of you, he adapted very well to his new life with “univision”. His leg healed very nicely, too.

As best we knew, Ralphie didn’t have much training, so we sent him to work with one of our trainers, Ashley, who was one of our youth adopters from about 10 years ago. She started her training career with her adopted horse, Takela – her heart horse – and she did an amazing job! Sadly, she recently lost Takela to a very bad colic. Ralphie made great progress from the get-go. Much to their surprise, she and her family were so smitten with this big fella, they wanted make him part of their family, and so it was! The universe has such an incredible way of bringing us just what we need, exactly when we need it!

Happy April Foals Day!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Happy April Foals Day! 🎉 

Here at the American Wild Horse Campaign, we run a Foal Rescue Fund to provide vet and critical care, safe transportation for baby foals in need of medical attention, and the creation of field kits to provide immediate treatment to foals while volunteers are on the range.

We have also provided funds to help build a critical foal care nursery, and to retrofit a retired ambulance to ensure that foals can be safely transported to get the care they need.

This is not an April Fools joke: we need your help to fully supply our Foal Rescue Fund — to ensure that no foal is left behind! The more money we raise, the more we can help foals in need. Will you please donate as much as you can to bolster our Foal Rescue Fund today?

On the Virginia Range, saving foals is a real community effort and we are proud to play a key role in it. On March 22, two AWHC fertility control volunteers came across a wild horse band with a tiny baby foal named Hazel. 

They quickly realized the foal wasn’t with her mother and instead was with a guardian mare who wasn’t able to feed her. The team tried but was unable to locate her family. That’s when the community coalition sprung into action. The range management team at Wild Horse Connection (WHC) was contacted. WHC secured permission to help the foal, then dispatched the Technical Large Animal Rescue Team (TLAR) to execute the rescue mission.

The filly went to LBL Equine Rescue to receive care while the local groups tried to locate her family. Hazel perked up with the loving care she received all night! Using their field knowledge and AWHC’s extensive wild horse identification database, the TLAR team tried to find Hazel’s mother the next morning — but a reunion was ultimately unsuccessful.

Foals are so delicate, and any seemingly healthy one can crash quickly. That was the case with Hazel. 

She had to be rushed to the vet clinic, where they put her on an IV and antibiotics after discovering she had intestinal inflammation and four different bacterial infections. Hazel also needed a plasma infusion to fight the infections, but she was quite the little fighter and the vets made sure she received the best care possible!

We’re happy to say, Hazel was released back to the rescue on March 30th!

Our Foal Rescue Fund is helping to cover Hazel’s mounting vet bills. This is why our Rescue Fund is so important — we’ve helped fund the local nursery where Hazel is being cared for, we’re purchasing kits that help provide immediate medical care in the field for quickly crashing foals, and we’ve provided resources to help retrofit a retired ambulance that is used by the TLAR rescue team to transport critical care foals to safety.

The more funds we raise for our Foal Rescue Fund, the more we can help tiny, vulnerable foals like Hazel and support the wonderful local volunteers and groups who work night and day to protect the Virginia Range horses in Nevada.

So today, on April Foals Day, will you make a donation to our Foal Rescue Fund?

THANK YOU FROM CHILLY PEPPER & ALL THE CRITTERS Y’ALL HAVE SAVED! MANY PRAYERS NEEDED FOR LUCKY!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

Meet “LUCKY # 5”

Lucky was found wandering alone on the range just hours after his birth. We have no idea whether he was abandoned on purpose due to his health issues, or his band was scared away or something happen to Mama.

He came in with some gurgling sounds and was twitching and shaking off and on. He was given Colostrum immediately, and thus started the journey of Foal # 5.

Lil Red is finally at a point you could call “stable”. He crashed so many times it seemed like he had no chance. He went down after he was tubed, nearly into a coma. Then he had to have Doc come out again. He is still having some gut issues, but doing very well overall.

Hunter is also doing pretty well, and the little lamb was adopted out to a wonderful home.

Nicholas, was the 1st baby on this last, very long trip. He went to a very special adopter and is thriving. You can follow him on our adoption page. He and Lucky look like twins except Nicholas is much larger and older.

So now we come to # 5. LUCKY is still absolutely touch and go. He is on all sorts of medications and is making all my hair fall out from worrying about him so much. We had his blood work done, and it is not bad. His IGG levels are good, which means giving him the Colostrum was most likely exactly what he needed. Thank you to everyone who donated so we could afford to have it on hand.

Please keep him in your prayers. Lucky is having all sorts of random issues and his waste still smells like death. I am hoping and praying this is not why he was left alone hours after being born.

We have incurred lots of vet bills, and the babies are loving their milk. They are going through mass amounts and I want to thank the folks who sent it. None of this would happen if it wasn’t for y’all.

Our beautiful Appy mare, now know as Lady, went to a wonderful new home this weekend. Today, Hawk, Hidalgo and Bailey (aka CC) arrived at their new homes. So adoptions are going well, although my poor lil heart keeps breaking. It stinks to not be the “best home” for a horse you are in love with LOL.

I have “baby brain”, from not sleeping much for the last 4? weeks. I am up all night, every night with these kids, so hopefully this all makes sense. Just wanted to stop between making milk etc. and giving Lucky his meds to say THANK YOU! We couldn’t do it without you, and yes, we still need help. Look how much you have accomplished. I cannot even believe what magic happens when we all come together.

God bless and please keep these babies in your prayers!

The babies are going through milk like crazy. ANY help is much appreciated. Anyone who wants to donate directly to vet bills can simply call Harrah Veterinary at 509-848-2943 and donate ANY amount towards our ongoing bills. Just tell them it’s for Palomino – Chilly Pepper.

As always, YOU are the ones who keep this going. We are just hitting the busy time and I am praying I get to go home for a couple of weeks. These last 3 babies have already gone through hundreds of dollars of milk, enemas, meds and supplies.

Meet “TUCKER & LIL RED”

These precious souls are fighting hard to be here and live in this brutal world. Lil Red has been touch and go from the start and is far from out of the woods. He had to be tube fed and then needed IV fluids. The vet has been out here several times and we are simply hour to hour. Prayers are much appreciated!

His little brain had not finished wiring when he was born. I am pretty sure he was a preemie. I have had numerous other foals like this, and they usually figure things out. He is NOT a dummy foal, just simply not “all there yet”. He was about 3 days old when I got him after being born on the feed lot.

Tucker has been having non stop tummy issues and is a bit colicky. Both have been through the wringer and will likely need more vet care and blood work. They are beautiful little boys who have had their Mama’s ripped away in front of them. Both of them spent the 1st couple nights crying incessantly. It is brutal to hear.

I just got the vet bill this morning for these last babies. This trip alone, the vet bills have totaled $2243.17. (*I LOVE Doc Bruce. His prices are SUBSTANTIALLY LOWER than we were being charged before. He is always there at the drop of a hat and I cannot say enough about how blessed we are. Not only for his expertise, but for the savings on each and every call he comes on.*)

Sadly, the bills still add up with the number of lives y’all are making it possible to save.

Nicholas and the little orphaned lamb both are at their new homes. Nicholas is thriving with his new Mama and is healing not only her broken heart, but the rest of the family’s as well.

The babies are going through milk like crazy. ANY help is much appreciated. Anyone who wants to donate directly to vet bills can simply call Harrah Veterinary at 509-848-2943 and donate ANY amount towards our ongoing bills. Just tell them it’s for Palomino – Chilly Pepper.

Help us save the wild horses – before it’s too late!

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Today I’m going to ask that you donate $25 to the American Wild Horse Campaign. But first, let me explain why we urgently need your support:

This summer is going to be a hard one for our cherished wild herds. Their freedom, families, and even their lives are going to be on the line.

Right now, helicopter roundups are paused until July 1 for foaling season. But shortly thereafter, one of the most beloved herds in the country will again be targeted for removal: the wild horses of the Onaqui Mountains in Utah. We have a plan in place to attempt to stop the operation from proceeding and we need your support.

In August, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is planning to conduct brutal surgical sterilization procedures on captive wild mares from the Confusion HMA in Utah. We have already filed suit to stop them and will need the resources to continue what could be a long, drawn-out battle.

Congress has already begun its annual Appropriations process, considering funding for the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program. Will it continue to throw money at the mass roundup and removal of wild horses and burros, or will it require the agency to shift focus to humane, on the range management of mustangs? The outcome depends on us. We need your assistance to help keep our team on Capitol Hill.

While there is much at stake for our wild horses and burros, there are also big opportunities to create meaningful change with a new administration, Interior Secretary, and BLM Director. But time is of the essence — we must act now.

Will you please donate $25 right now and help us save the wild horses and burros of America — before it’s too late?

Thank you,
Suzanne Roy

NEWBORNS ON THE FEEDLOT – ANOTHER 911 – SHIPPER CALLED – IT IS BEYOND GO TIME AND THE BABIES NEED YOUR HELP!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Wow – the insanity has already begunY’all JUST SAVED TEN MORE LIVES since I arrived in WA to pick up the Stallion and the 2 Pregnant mares!

I was getting ready to head back home to NV on Monday when I received another urgent phone call for an orphaned, abandoned foal. Then a call for an abandoned, injured, newborn orphaned lamb. It never stops!

This morning I had Doc come out and pull Coggins on “Nicholas”, (Our most recent Emergency), I was prepping to finally head home and my phone rang again. There are “tinies” at the Shipper’s and I should be getting them tomorrowSo apparently I am not going home anytime soon.

Sadly, NEARLY ALL the funds have been depleted on this last rescue. Every day that I am here, I have to have folks at home taking care of the rescue. Although most of their time is volunteer, it still adds up substantially. (They are amazing!) We also need to get another load of hay for the “special needs” kids at the rescue. Fuel costs are rising and that is a substantial cost for us even before the ridiculous prices we are already starting to see.

I have to get more shelter set up for these critical babies. As the numbers increase, so does the need for safe nursery space to give them what they need.

We spent roughly $2000+ simply to “save” these lives, and spent over $1,000 on vetting for health certs, (and that does not include the latest couple visits). That was just to get the horses to camp and keep them off the slaughter truck. (Just in the last 2 weeks). This DOES NOT include medical care, feed, hauling, etc. It is just a drop in the bucket of the rescue expenses.

I realize folks are struggling. However, I will keep fighting for these lives as long as I have the funding to do so. Sadly I have been warned that they are planning on “hitting it hard” this year because there are so many horses. So I am asking everyone who wants me to keep saving these precious lives to make it happen.

Great news however, these last horses that you saved are nearly all adopted, and yes, we saved the “3 Old Ladies”. They are currently in NV and being assessed. They are approximately 25 years old and sweet as can be.

Sadly we had to let Angel Face leave this world that was nothing but cruel to her. She was in excruciating pain and it was much worse the photos showed. She is running free in Heaven with the Angels and is finally free from the horrific pain. I am still working on the mare with the long feet. However, her owner did get them trimmed (how well I don’t know), and supposedly the vet is going to assess her. I am still on standby. I know it costs a lot to set these souls free, but it is the right thing to do! It is beyond devastating and it feels like you are being torn apart, yet I will always do it if no one else will.

When you see Angel Face below, please know that your love and support ended her horrible suffering. YOU made such a difference for this beautiful soul by alleviating her endless pain. THANK YOU!

URGENT HELP NEEDED FOR HORRIBLE ABUSE CASES – UNTREATED BROKEN LEG!!! STANDING BY FOR MORE BABIES!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Look at this poor mare’s leg. Look at the other mare’s hooves. This is serious abuse, and we need to try and save them. Can you EVEN IMAGINE THE PAIN??!

Sadly I do not have much hope for fixing her leg, but I will do whatever she needs. She has suffered long enough. I am hoping we can get her here, have her checked out by the vet, and then ease her pain. She also has to be in agony. After having 40 plus surgeries on my leg, and having my femur snap in half, I can’t even imagine how much pain she is in. With so much weight and stress on that front leg, it has to be awful.

The second mare shown has been beyond abused. She also has to be in agony. It will be a miracle if her Coffin bones have not rotated. Both will need vetting, x-rays and lots of special care. IF I can save the second mare, she will most likely need long term, specialized farrier care as well. If I DON’T GET HER, he plans to CONTINUE BREEDING HER!!! I have been promised the one with the broken leg, but still working on saving her if we raise enough funds to save her and take care of her.

YESTERDAY, I received a 911 for 3 old ladies. They are wild (unhandled) mini’s, aged approximately 25, and they are considered in extremely poor health. They have nowhere else to go and also will need vetting and specialty care.

I am ALSO on notice for more babies. These horses are JUST the ones that God put in front of me these last few days. PLEASE HELP ME HELP THEM!

I NEVER look for horses to save,and sadly, I simply cannot say yes to all of them. The ones I share with y’all to save, well ALL OF THEM are urgent calls and 911’s put in front of me. I am already emotionally spent, and the season is just starting. Of course the last one never ended. I was told there could be a huge number of babies all at once, and since I got 70 in 2 days just a few years ago, that in itself is a bit stressful.

THANK YOU for saving the 6 in NV, and the last 8 in WA. ALL the pregnant mares are doing well and so are the babies. Sadly, Lil Dancer was too far gone, and he is running in Heaven with his Mama.

Thank you to Freedom Reigns in CA for taking the 3 NV wild and pregnant mares!

ANOTHER 911 – STARVING & PREGNANT MARES, STALLION ALL SLATED TO SHIP TO SLAUGHTER! PLEASE HELP SAVE THEM!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Meet “Reigns”. I got to meet her, and she is THE SWEETEST soul you will ever meet. She is in extremely rough shape and needs us yesterday!

In the middle of saving the latest 3 mares and foal, ANOTHER 911 and a starving mare, pregnant mares & the stallion shipping to slaughter! The stallion is still with his family. We can’t leave him behind.

(For folks who say “how can they ship a pregnant mare? Well it’s all about money and pregnant mares are heavy. They are paid by weight and the babies count, even though they are discarded during slaughter.)

It’s BABY SEASON and the mares are starting to give birth. I cannot think of much worse than a baby dropping to the floor and being trampled in the middle of the slaughter truck.

As always, I am asking you to help save these lives. When God puts them in front of me, I know I have to try and save them. However, YOU are the ones who decide yes or no. I cannot do it without you!

Sadly, our beautiful Snow Baby Little Dancer passed before I could get here. Mel took wonderful care of him and we were waiting for the vet, but his little heart wanted to leave and find his Mama up in heaven.

The CURRENT RESCUE of the pregnant mare, the colt and the possibly pregnant mare is happening and thanks to you, all 3 of the last group are safe. Let’s keep it going and save these precious lives as well.

Below, the mare and baby you saved on this rescue! Samantha seems like she is going to give birth any time now. Please say a prayer that when she does, all goes well.

We have a wild horse champion headed to the Interior

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

Here is your latest news on all things wild horses and burros!

Wild Horse Champion Haaland Heads to Interior Department

On Tuesday, the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources will hold a confirmation hearing to consider the nomination of New Mexico Representative Deb Haaland for secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior. Secretary-designate Haaland would be the first Native American to head this department that oversees more than 450 million acres of public land in the nation.

AWHC has had the pleasure of working with Secretary-designate Haaland in Congress. As chair of the Public Lands Subcommittee of the House Natural Resources Committee, she has worked to reform the inhumane and expensive federal wild horse roundup program by supporting humane solutions, such as PZP fertility control, and has opposed the brutal surgical sterilization procedures the BLM continues to pursue.

Because Secretary-designate Haaland is a champion of protecting our public lands and the wild animals that inhabit them, her nomination faces stiff opposition from the oil/gas, mining, and livestock industries. So, today, we’re asking everyone who cares about wild horses and burros and our public lands to take just a moment to call your Senators in support of her confirmation.

Please call Senator Michael Bennet at (202) 224-5852 and Senator John Hickenlooper at (202) 224-5941

You can say,  “Hello, I am a constituent of Senator [Name] and I am calling to ask that they please support the confirmation of Deb Haaland* for Interior Secretary. Her leadership is necessary to protect our nation’s public lands and natural resources, including our federally-protected wild horses and burros. Thank you.” *pronounced like the country, Holland.

Then, follow up your call with a message! >> Take Action <<

New BLM Wild Horse and Burros Advisory Board Member Called Wild Horses a ‘Protein Source’

Speaking of a new Interior Department, former Interior Secretary David Bernhardt and his illegally serving Bureau of Land Management (BLM) director William Perry Pendley will go down in history as the worst stewards of our nation’s public lands. The past four years have seen an unrelenting assault on the environment, wildlife, and America’s wild horses and burros.

Before they left town, Bernhardt and Pendley appointed Beaver County, Utah Commissioner Tammy Pearson to represent the “public interest” on the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. Pearson is a flagrantly corrupt choice for this position. A 40-year public lands rancher whose allotments are in wild horse Herd Management Areas in Utah, Pearson has lobbied and testified for wild horse roundups and in favor of horse slaughter.

She discounts the strong opinion of the American public against the slaughter of wild and domestic horses as “romanticizing” an animal that the “whole rest of the world” considers a “protein source.” In her 2017 testimony before the Utah legislature, she blamed horses for all the damage in the areas where her cattle graze and claimed that wild horses there were suffering from overpopulation and starvation. You can listen to her testimony below.

AWHC opposes this unscrupulous appointment and believes it violates a conflict of interest provision under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, so we’re taking action. We’ll keep you posted and in the meantime, be sure to check out our Op-ed about her appointment, published yesterday in the Grand Junction Sentinel. >> Read More <<

We’re Fighting for Humane Management With Science

Instead of the unscientific approach of mass helicopter roundups, humanely managing wild horses requires a more sophisticated method that relies on fieldwork and on-the-ground knowledge of the horse or burro populations a particular BLM district is managing.

AWHC aims to harness science and technology to advance the goal of humane management of these iconic animals. AWHC already runs the largest humane wild horse fertility control program in the world. Now we’re excited to be partnering with WildMe, a non-profit that builds open software and artificial intelligence for the conservation community with the goal of protecting at-risk species.

Our goal is to develop an algorithm that will identify individual horses from photographs, something that will greatly enhance the efficiency of our fertility control efforts while providing a mechanism for accurate censusing and tracking of wild herds, using citizen science for the collection of data.

Currently, our Virginia Range fertility control program volunteers identify horses manually by photograph, based on our extensive database of more than 3,000 horses cataloged by color, markings, social affiliation, location and any other identifying features. It’s a method that works, as evidenced by our record of delivering over 3,000 fertility control treatments in less than two years. However, it is time-consuming. Having an algorithm that allows a volunteer to take a photo, run it through the software and come up with the data file on that specific horse will make the process of identifying mares in need of PZP treatment much faster – something our volunteers — who are often in the field under punishing weather conditions – will greatly appreciate!

The research should be complete by June and we should know at that time whether the algorithm (PIE) being tested will work for horses. We’ll keep you posted. >> Learn More <<

I honestly have no idea what the future holds for rescues everywhere. I am praying I can keep saving lives with your help.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! It’s a day to celebrate love and we need to look no further than our magnificent wild horses to appreciate the true meaning of this emotion.

Wild horses live in tightly-knit communities. Mares never stray too far from their young, stallions fight to protect their families from danger, mutual grooming is a daily occurrence, and herds hold vigil when one of their own passes away. 

We wanted to spread some love of our own with you today in the form of downloadable Valentines for the sweetheart in your herd! 

Your love for wild horses and burros inspires us every day. Thank you for everything you do to create a brighter future for these amazing animals.

We hope that you have a beautiful Valentine’s Day!

6 WILD HORSES – SAFE AT CHILLY PEPPER BUT NOT YET FUNDED – CHILLY PEPPER NEEDS YOUR HELP – PLEASE!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

CHILLY PEPPER NEEDS YOUR HELP ASAP!

For the first time since I started this rescue, we failed to raise enough funds to save the 6 wild horses who were shipping to slaughter.

LUCKILY for the horses, I went on faith and saved them even though we haven’t yet raised the funds. This means that monies slated for feed and vet bills has not been put back, and the horses really need your help.

This is a first,and sadly a result of the current times. We simply did not raise enough funds to cover the cost of saving them, transporting them, drawing blood work and getting brand inspections, health certificates etc.

Yesterday we had to geld 4 stallions, so the wild ones can find safe and loving homes.

I am praying hard, as the world simply seems to be upside down. I have no idea where the rescue is headed due to the general economy. For now, I am hoping we can raise enough funds to pay for the gelding, vetting and transport.

THE 3 SKINNY, PREGNANT MARES HAVE A WONDERFUL HOME OFFER at a private sanctuary in California. I almost cried when she said she would offer them a forever home. HOWEVER, we need funds to transport them safely, get health certificates, brand inspections etc.

The simple truth is that Chilly Pepper STILL needs help for these horses, even though they are SAFE and we kept them off of that horrible truck!

I also had a “behind the scenes” rescue of this beautiful little girl shown below. She is crippled and definitely did not need to be an appetizer somewhere. Meet “Phoebee”.

We delivered a 100 Day agenda for wild horses and burros

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

It’s been a wild first two weeks of 2021, but we’re standing strong at AWHC for our wild horses and burros. We’re a few days away from a new Administration and our team has been pushing forward with our plan of action to protect America’s wild free-roaming horses and burros from mass roundups and slaughter.   

First 100 Days Wild Horse Agenda for the Biden Administration

Just this week, AWHC submitted its First 100 Days Wild Horse Agenda to the Biden Administration with an urgent plea to reform the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) wild horse and burro management program, which is careening toward fiscal and animal welfare disaster.  

Urgent action is necessary in light of the BLM’s plan to round up 90,000 wild horses and burros from public lands over the next five years, a move that would triple the number of horses maintained in off-range holding facilities while decimating wild herds at a cost to taxpayers of nearly $1 billion. 

This agenda can set the stage for progress and reform of BLM’s inhumane practices.

We’re hopeful that the new administration will take significant steps to rein in the BLM and its mistreatment of our nation’s wild horses and burros. By following our First 100 Days Agenda, the Biden Administration can take necessary first steps to finally granting these iconic animals the protection and humane management they deserve. 

Public Lands Rancher Appointed to Represent Public on Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board

The last four years have been marked by an all-out assault on our public lands by the Interior Department under Secretary David Bernhardt and the illegally-serving BLM Director William Perry Pendley. America’s wild horses and burros have not escaped the destruction. Scapegoated for massive environmental damage to public lands caused by the livestock industry, these iconic animals face virtual extinction under the Bernhardt/Pendley Plan to cull wild herds by 70 percent. 

And now, in a parting shot, the outgoing Secretary has appointed a public lands rancher who views wild horses as a “protein source” to represent the public interest on the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board. Read more about this corrupt appointment and AWHC’s vow to fight it here.

AWHC Responds to One-Sided Sacramento Bee Article

Last month, the Sacramento Bee published a one-sided story on the Devil’s Garden wild horse herd, which gave a megaphone to ranchers who want the land where the horses roam for their cattle. The article dismissed wild horse advocates as having a romanticized view of wild horses, who the author believes are better off captured and fed in pens than living free in the wild. On Saturday, the newspaper published AWHC’s response in an OpEd entitled, “How to fix federal mismanagement of California’s wild horse population.” Read the article here.

AWHC continues to fight the mismanagement of the Devil’s Garden wild horses by the U.S. Forest Service, which recently announced that it was selling all wild horses captured in a fall 2020 roundup for $25 a piece. Previous sales of captured Devil’s Garden wild horses have resulted in many disasters, including the escape of two untamed mustangs who are still at large in Pennsylvania, the deaths of 9 horses from salmonella poisoning after being shipped to Florida, and 18 horses delivered to a remote Colorado property that can be inaccessible during the winter months.

Meanwhile, the Forest Service continues to charge ahead with roundups as its main management tool and declined AWHC’s previous offer to fund a pilot fertility control program for this herd, which is California’s largest and most significant wild horse population. 

Roundup Report from Eagle Complex

Another massive wild horse roundup is underway, this one in the BLM’s Eagle Complex in eastern Nevada. AWHC’s observer is on site to document this capture operation that aims to remove over 1,000 wild horses and reduce the population to just 139-265 in this 743,000-acre habitat area — that equates to as little as one horse per every 5,345 acres!  The BLM is clearing the land of wild horses so that thousands of cattle and sheep can continue to graze this public lands area. 

As with any roundup, the scenes we’re witnessing are truly heartbreaking. As of Jan. 15, 412 wild horses have lost their freedom in the Eagle Complex roundup and five have lost their lives.

We are working hard to change this — in Congress, in the courts and in the field by showing that humane management works. We need YOU more than ever to keep showing up, speaking up, and supporting our work. Together, we will do everything in our power to protect America’s wild horses.

Thank you for your support, Meredith. Our wild horses — and their continued freedom — depends on all of us.
