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!

We wouldn’t be able to protect the wild horses and burros of America without supporters like you. That’s why this Thanksgiving, we wanted to share a very special thank you for making it all possible.

We’re so grateful for you and for the magnificent animals we are working so hard to protect.

We’ve got many challenges ahead – but with your help, we’ll continue to meet them to ensure that our wild horses and burros are running free on our public lands for our children and grandchildren to enjoy.

From all of us at the American Wild Horse Campaign, warmest wishes to you and your family for a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

Another angel among us….

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Another AAE angel earned his wings last night.  Well, if horses could be angels and saints, Marshy-man was as an absolute angel, and an absolute saint.  There was a glow about this little guy, and if you ever met him, pretty sure you would know what I mean.

If you haven’t heard his story, Marshy came to AAE from another rescue back in March of 2014, but it seems he’s been here forever.  He was quite ill.  They didn’t have the ability help him and asked for help.  After considerable evaluation, diagnostics, and re-evaluating, the conclusion was that he likely had some form of intestinal cancer or irritable bowel disease.  He was started on steroids and showed steady improvement.

Marshy quickly became a favorite at AAE.  He introduced kids to horses in summer camps and pony pals programs.
He loved kids, and he loved adults just the same.
Marshy was the dress-up master.  He loved helping celebrate holidays, and he did it well.
Steroids can be wonder drugs, but unfortunately, they come with many risks.  Sadly, in 2016, Marshy experienced an acute onset of cataracts in both eyes. Suddenly, he couldn’t see.  However, thanks to all of Marshy’s friends, your kindness made such a difference for him.  He got the gift of site (cataract surgery in one eye).
You are the cutest, the most handsome, the funniest, the sweetest, the lovey-est, the one there aren’t enough words to describe!
You made princesses smile and
 fairy tales come true.
Marshy, wish we could all have
one more day to love you more.
Enjoy running ‘cross those green pastures….
…and jumping fences along the way,
forever pain free, lil man.

Every time I look in that mirror, I’ll think of you, lil’ man.  Loved you the mostest, mighty Moo!
Remembering you, always Marshy,
all of you’re friends at AAE and everywhere.

DOI Requests to Destroy Records – Act Now

The U.S. Department of the Interior is proposing to destroy thousands of public records including those related to the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Progam. AWHC and other wild horse protection groups believe that many of these records are valuable to research and our advocacy and litigation work. Their destruction could significantly hamper our efforts to protect wild horses and burros. Please take action today.

 

Incompetent and Dangerous Management of Corrals on Full Display at Adoption Event

Members of the AWHC team attended the Devil’s Garden wild horse sale and adoption event this weekend in Alturas, CA where 45 horses were placed. We have serious concerns about the safety and welfare of the horses in the pens in the Modoc National Forest under the management of the Modoc County Farm Bureau. While every person who took a horse appears to be a legitimate trainer or rescue, the remaining horses are far from safe, because in less than two months, the Forest Service plans to sell any horses for $1 a piece without limitation on slaughter. Read our firsthand account below.

 

Winter Roundups Begin Next Week 

Next week, the BLM helicopters will descend on the Silver King HMA in eastern Nevada, kicking off the winter roundup season. A total of 1,600 wild horses and burros have been targeted for removal over the next two months. Read on to find out what herds are being targeted.

URGENT HELP NEEDED – “BELLA’S LEGACY – GOT HAY?” – FUNDRAISER TO HONOR BELLA, FOR CAMP FIRE ANIMALS & CPMM

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

PLEASE join us, in our “BELLA’S LEGACY – Got Hay”? fund raiser for the displaced horses and critters from the Camp Fire in CA & CPMM. The fire is about an hour from our place in CA, and is hitting close to home. There is so much heartbreak and sadness it is truly unimaginable, and the number of lost lives goes up every day.

We were asked to offer assistance, but due to one of our babies having substantial injuries, and also having so many special needs kids right now, we are hoping to offer assistance by helping provide some much needed hay. We were told that as the animals come out of the mountains in the coming weeks we might be needed to help with critical care at that time. But right now, feed and hay is desperately needed, and that is something we hope to help with.

So any donations made in the next 5 days, starting today, 11-15-18 and ending 11-20-18, at midnight, will be used equally for the horses at Chilly Pepper and the horses and critters that are being cared for from the Camp Fire. We will post the total amount raised and we will use half of the funds to purchase and deliver the “gold” to California.

As of this morning, we are sitting on 41 horses at Chilly Pepper. Y’all have come through and made it possible to save so many lives this year. We simply cannot express our appreciation and gratitude for your love and support. We have been playing catch up on paperwork, tax stuff etc. and been swamped with all of our special needs kids and taking care of 41+ horses. Hopefully I will catch up and be able to get all your personal “thank you’s” out. We so appreciate all you do!

On an extremely sad note, we had to set Bella free from her pain. As always, it is devastating to get a horse “too late” to save it. She was only 4 and knew nothing but pain, starvation and abuse prior to y’all making it possible to rescue her. We had those horrible lil hoofers fixed, but she was in so much pain, clear through her body, that even with large doses of pain meds the fight became too much. The more weight she gained, the harder it was. I stayed with her as always, and through the tears streaming down my face, I could see her relax for the first time, as the pain gradually subsided.

So to honor our beautiful Bella, let’s help those horses who are hungry, in pain, scared and suffering from the Camp Fire. Please support “BELLA’S LEGACY – GOT HAY?”

THANK YOU FOR SAVING THE KIDS SHOWN BELOW! They are precious and every single one of their lives matter!

Update on the Devil’s Garden Wild Horses 

The Forest Service’s roundup of the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory is ending this week, with the permanent removal of over 900 horses from their federally-designated habitat on our public lands in the Modoc National Forest. To date, thirteen horses have died, including one foal. In addition, three mares have miscarried, likely due to the trauma of the roundup. Seven of the horses euthanized after showing symptoms of pigeon fever, a contagious but generally non-fatal bacterial infection. Despite the outbreak, the Forest Service plans to hold an adoption/sales event next weekend. And, the Forest Service still intends to sell older horses by the truckload for $1 a piece without limitation on slaughter after 60 days. See the latest update on the Devil’s Garden roundup and speak up for these iconic horses by clicking below.

 

Spay Experiments: What Our Preliminary Injunction Means

Late last week, we won a preliminary injunction to halt the BLM’s planned barbaric spay experiments in Oregon. The action was part of a lawsuit filed by AWHC, the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) and The Cloud Foundation aimed at blocking the BLM from performing risky and inhumane sterilization surgeries on wild Oregon mares recently captured from the Warm Springs Herd Management Area. The had BLM planned to begin the experiments this week. Learn more by clicking below.

 

What the Election Means for Wild Horses

Last night’s election results changed the playing field for many issues, including the fight to protect wild horses and burros. The power shift in the House of Representatives makes it extremely unlikely that the Interior Department’s agenda of mass roundups, sterilization and slaughter will become reality, but making proactive change in a divided Congress is going to take real work. Meanwhile, developments in states may open the door to driving change at the local level. Read about some key election results that have implications for wild horses and burros by clicking below.

Tell Congress to Pass Popular, Bipartisan Trails

The following is from the American Horse Council:

American Horse Council Action Alert

Tell Congress to Pass Popular, Bipartisan Trails Bills!

As Congress returns for a final, “lame duck” session following the November 6 election, lawmakers have an opportunity to pass widely-supported, bipartisan legislation that promotes access to public lands for equine enthusiasts.   The horse industry seeks to push two major trails bills across the finish line: 

Restore Our Parks and Public Lands Act (H.R. 6510/S. 3172) – The House Natural Resources Committee voted unanimously to pass H.R. 6510, the Restore Our Parks and Public Lands Act, underscoring the bi-partisan support behind the bill.  The House bill currently has 209 cosponsors.  On the other side of the Capitol, Sens. Rob Portman (R-OH) and Mark Warner (D-VA) have joined 33 senate colleagues to give momentum to the Restore Our Parks Act of 2018 (S. 3172).  The Restore Our Parks Act (H.R. 6510/ S. 3172) will fund National Park Service trails maintenance projects by diverting energy development revenues to a new public lands restoration account.   

Recreation Not Red Tape (RNR) Act – Since House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) introduced the RNR Act (H.R. 3400) in 2017, the chairman conducted a full committee hearing, resulting in passage of the legislation in April 2018.   House leadership has the discretion to schedule a vote on H.R. 3400 before the end of the year.  The legislation currently has 12 bipartisan co-sponsors.  On the Senate side, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) introduced a companion bill, S. 1633, which has won bipartisan co-sponsorships from Sens. Donnelly (D-IN), Ernst (R-IA), Tester (D-MT) and King (I-ME).  Although leadership has referred the bill to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, no hearings have been scheduled.

While the Restore Our Parks legislation has quickly gained significant support from lawmakers, the RNR Act has not gained as much traction.  To put more horsepower into the bill, urge your lawmakers to co-sponsor the RNR Act.  Please contact your lawmakers today, and urge them to pass these important bills before the end of the year.

BREAKING: Judge blocks mare sterilization experiments

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

This morning a federal judge in Oregon granted our request for a preliminary injunction to stop the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from proceeding with controversial experiments to surgically remove the ovaries of wild mares in Oregon. The experiments were set to begin this month. Due to the experimental design, which requires conducting the procedure on pregnant mares, the injunction effectively means that the research may not proceed for a year, if at all.

It was the second time this week that our attorneys were in federal court fighting against the government’s war on wild horses. And it’s the second time in two years that our legal action has stopped the BLM from proceeding with these cruel surgeries. 

We’re pleased that Judge Michael W. Mosman recognized the strong public interest in humane treatment and protection of wild horses and we’re grateful to our co-plaintiffs — The Cloud Foundation and its Executive Director Ginger Kathrens, the Animal Welfare Institute and photographer Carol Walker for joining us in this fight!

It’s time for the the BLM to reconsider its plans to conduct this inhumane research and focus instead on humane, scientifically recommended forms of population management, including PZP fertility control.

This is an important first step in the fight against inhumane surgical sterilization of our wild horses and burros. We will continue to keep you updated.

Have a good weekend, and thanks for standing with us!

The AWHC Candidate Survey

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

In an effort to continue our education mission, AWHC sent candidates running for federal and statewide office in Nevada, California, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Oregon a survey to determine their stance on protecting wild horses and burros, as well as population and land management. We’d like to thank those who responded to the survey for their time in answering the questions, and hope that you find this information useful.

To see if any of your candidates responded to our survey, click here.

AWHC is a non-partisan organization and support for wild horse and burro protection comes from both sides of the political aisle. We urge our supporters to vote next Tuesday and hope that all candidates elected will respect the will of the American people to protect our iconic wild horses and burros on our Western public lands.

Sincerely,

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Today is the last day for our Devil’s Garden fundraising campaign. We’ve been working around the clock fighting to protect California wild horses from roundup and slaughter. Read on for an update about our efforts, and please chip in now to help make sure these innocent wild horses are not sold for slaughter.

On Wednesday, outside of the U.S. Forest Service headquarters in Vallejo, California, 75-100 advocates protested the inhumane and illegal planned roundup and sale of the Devil’s Garden wild horses.

 

Thank you to everyone who came out! This protest was a huge moment in this fight to save wild horses from slaughter – and it’s a fight we can win.

Here’s everything we’re doing right now to secure protections for these horses:

Legal: We teamed up with the Animal Legal Defense Fund to file a lawsuit last week to block the sale of wild horses without restrictions on slaughter. Our legal team has been successfully litigating over the Devils Garden wild horses for five years. We’re confident we can win this latest case to protect wild horses from slaughter – with the right resources. Support our legal efforts!

Legislative: We’re working with both federal and state legislators to put a halt to this crisis and enforce protections for these horses. Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) has been joined by 22 other members of the California legislature in opposing the Forest Service’s cruel plans, and Senator Dianne Feinstein is working to end this abuse by the Forest Service. Help us keep up the fight.

Long term: Before this crisis began, AWHC was working with the Forest Service on a plan to introduce a humane, scientific pilot program for sustainable population management. Our PZP birth control program has proven to be a successful range management solution everywhere it’s been tried. Support our efforts to bring long-term, humane management to wild horses across the country.

Placement: We’ve created a Devil’s Garden Placement Assistance Fund to help support safe placement of Devils Garden horses. Chip in today!

If the U.S. Forest Service gets away with selling wild horses for slaughter, it will set a horrific precedent that will open the floodgates to slaughter of thousands of federally protected mustangs.

We won’t let it happen  – and with your help, we’ll win this fight.

Thanks for standing with us, and with the Devil’s Garden horses.

There’s a new angel….

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

There’s a new angel, his name is…

Yesterday was a somber day at AAE, to say the least.  We said our last goodbye to one of the greatest ol’ guys that ever graced the barn at AAE.  Kasey was one of the most kind, gentle, brave, and stoic souls you could ever know.
Sadly, he reminded us how quickly things can change.  This past year was a long one as we battled an enormous hoof abscess.  He was winning!  Though the abscess invaded a huge amount of his hoof, he remained comfortable and sound once the abscess broke through his coronary band.  Unfortunately, the integrity of his hoof was compromised. Enormous shoes to support his enormous weight and a hospital plate did the trick, until recently.
He was sound one day, and very uncomfortable the next.  Initially thinking another recurrence, we tried pain meds, but even at a high dose, we couldn’t manage the pain.  New radiographs showed his coffin bone had rotated severely.
Now, we hope you’re dancing in Heaven, pain free.
Kasey was so handsome and regal…
…and he was truly a big goofball.  He thoroughly entertained us playing right along with all of our antics and dress up games for the holidays.
He was a man of all seasons…
He defined “gentle giant” and calmed the fears of so many people, and he loved attention and royal treatment.
He lost his buddy, Angus last year. Angus lost some of his vision, and Kasey became his sight.

They were two peas in pod.

When Angus was gone, a new gal came a knockin’.  They met…and I wouldn’t say it was “love at first sight”, but they ended up gettin’ hitched.  It was a really formal affair.
His hoof care management was an enormous task, as you might imagine.  Kasey and everyone at AAE is forever grateful for the love and dedication of his pal, Michelle.  She was diligent in caring for his hoof….picking, flushing, wrapping, rewrapping, and making sure he got everything he needed.
Kase…as you and Angus, together again, are running over those green pastures, remember how much everyone loved you!
Be sure to check back with us now and then, there’s always a place for you here in the barn.
We all want one more hug, big guy.
Love ya’ and miss ya forever, all of you’re friends at AAE

Even if you can’t make it in person, we need your help to raise awareness for the issue online during our rally.

Support our protest against the sale of wild horses without limitation on slaughter by joining our virtual sit-in today.

We could be working toward humane and sustainable wild horse management – instead, we’re working around the clock to make sure these horses are not sold by the truckload for a $1 a piece. Supporters across the country have come forward to voice their support for saving these horses. We need that energy today.

Make your voice heard TODAY! Here’s how you can help:

“Save wild horses from slaughter! I oppose the U.S. Forest Service rounding up wild horses in California and selling them without limitation – where they could be sold by the truckload for $1 a piece to be butchered for horsemeat. #ProtectWildHorses

While we’re protesting at the Forest Service in Vallejo today, we’ll be counting on you to raise awareness of this issue online and across the country. If we all raise our voices, the Forest Service will have no choice but to change their plan of mass roundups, sale and slaughter.

Message, tweet, and share your support of America’s Wild Horses with the hashtag #ProtectWildHorses, and let’s tell the Forest Service we won’t stand for this government-sponsored cruelty.

Thanks!

The plan for wild horses

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Before the U.S. Forest Service announced its plan to sell captured Devil’s Garden wild horses without limitation on slaughter, AWHC was working with the agency on a plan to introduce a humane, scientific pilot program for sustainable population management.

In fact, we were (and remain) ready to implement a PZP birth control pilot program in the Garden, and to work with ranching permittees to explore compensation for retirement or reduced use of livestock grazing permits on the public lands in the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory.

It’s disappointing that the U.S. Forest Service has prioritized mass removal and sale for slaughter instead of taking a step toward humane and sustainable wild horse management. This is particularly true since their plan violates both the intent of Congress and the laws of California, which has banned the cruel practice of horse slaughter for two decades.

So now we have to fight back — and let them know that choosing slaughter over humane range management is unacceptable to the American public.

The response we’ve already received has been huge — can you chip in today to help us reach our new $50,000 goal and fuel our efforts to protect wild horses?

Here are the steps we’re taking to fight back against this cruel and illegal plan:

  • We’ve filed a lawsuit to block the sale of wild horses to kill buyers. Legal action is one of the most potent weapons in our arsenal — but it’s expensive. Chip in today to help us win this lawsuit.
  • We’re mobilizing our supporters from across California to attend our rally in Vallejo demanding that the Forest Service put a stop to this inhumane plan. Support our field efforts.
  • We’re working with allies in both the state legislature and the federal government — and we’ve already gotten huge support. State Senator Todd Gloria (D-San Diego) and 23 of his colleagues in the California Legislature have joined the fight, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein has made her voice heard. Help us keep lobbying our leaders for action.

We believe that we can win this fight — but only with your help. Thanks for standing with us.

October 26, 2018

Ears the news…

What a difference a day makes….waking up to snow on the ground was a surprise. The donkeys and mules were lined up so their bodies were like solar panels; all soaking in the warmth as the sun rose in the sky.

I am happy to say that in the twelve years I’ve been placing animals through the rescue, only twice have I had to reclaim animals from the home in which I had placed them. Since close to 400 animals have been placed in homes in that time frame I am able to take it in stride, though I cannot say it does not bother me greatly. Upon doing a site visit to a home which agreed to make changes necessary to provide what two draft mules would need recently, we sadly found that not only had the changes not been made, but the animals condition was not acceptable, so the decision was made to take them back. This is not a pleasant experience for either side. Although unpleasant I will do what needs to be done as I am first and foremost an advocate for the animals in my care. I will work with potential adopters by offering advice, suggestions, and even hands on help if needed, but if adopters are not going to abide by the rules and regulations stipulated in the adoption contract they sign, I will do whatever is necessary for the wellbeing of the animals. Thankfully this does not happen often as it very stressful for all involved. I am happy to say the two we brought back are doing well and are ready to be adopted.

We have quite a few animals available for adoption right now. The two draft mules who came back are a sweet bonded pair. We have several donkey pairs as well as two single mules. All of them would be very happy with a family to dote on them. I love having them here but know they will be so much happier with their own people.

I am looking forward to attending my sixth annual Donkey Welfare Symposium at UC Davis Vet School next weekend. I love the opportunity to be around like minded people who want to learn how to best care for their animals. The chance to learn from veterinarians, equine dentists, farriers, behaviorists many of whom work in third world countries on the donkeys there is an amazing experience. It’s a blast to hook up with friends whom I see only at this venue, once a year.   I will get home and have a couple of weeks to prepare for Equine Affaire which is another fun gig to look forward to and at which I hope to see a lot of you.

The water heaters have been pulled out of storage and electric tea pots at the ready for preparing hot mashes as the weather changes. I hope all of you and your long eared buddies are having a wonderful fall and that the winter will be kind to us all.

ChEARS,

Ann

We’re suing to stop CA wild horse slaughter

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

If we don’t stop it, the federal government will sell hundreds of wild horses, including those pictured below, for slaughter.

We just filed a lawsuit to block this horrible plan, and we need your support.

Unbelievably, in less than 90 days, the U.S. Forest Service intends to offer federally-protected wild horses for sale without limitation on slaughter. The horses — who are being rounded up right now from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in the Modoc National Forest near Alturas, California — will be sold by the trailerload for $1 a piece. Kill buyers will be allowed to purchase these wild horses and truck them across the border to Canadian slaughter plants, where these American icons will be butchered and turned into horsemeat for human consumption overseas.

Not on our watch. 

To make sure we’re successful, we need to raise $20,000 by this Friday. Donate now, and help us stop the federal government from selling these cherished wild horses for slaughter.

The Forest Service’s roundup and slaughter plan is one of the most brazen acts of destruction we’ve seen this year. And all so that ranchers who hold grazing permits in the Forest can put MORE cattle on our public lands.

If everyone steps up, we can stop this. Please donate now to stop wild horse slaughter and help us reach our $20,000 fundraising goal by this Friday.

Thank you!

Gratefully,

Suzanne Roy, Executive Director

CHILLY PEPPER – UPDATE – 7 MORE HORSES – CAN WE SAVE THEM BY TOMORROW????? 11 HORSES ALREADY SAVED IN LAST 2 DAYS

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THE GROUP SHOWN ABOVE ARE MY NEW “DEADLINE” FOR TOMORROW – DO YOU WANT TO SAVE THEM AS WELL?

YOU DID IT! We SAVED 11 lives in the last two days with your love and support. We have enough to vet these kids, but now the above lives are at stake.

I am sure you already know the next line. ANOTHER PHONE CALL – I have til tomorrow to raise the funds for 7 MORE HORSES!

We ended up with 2 emaciated mares, one so bad that she went down right after stepping into the trailer. She is an older mare, and we named her “Gramama” as she has a raggedy little foal at her side. She is an excellent mama, and has given every single ounce of strength she has to her little boy “Buster Brown”.

The other mare named “Cassie”, has been horribly abused and is skin and bones at best. She has injuries all over her body from being used as a “tripping horse” and for roping practice.

I could not leave these two mares behind, so the total yesterday was 10, and we picked up a gorgeous guy “Blacktop” the day before. (My first view of him he was running down the road, happily boot scooting all over the black top.)

Unbelievably, as I was cooking dinner in the horse trailer, Mel walked in and handed me the phone. It was another one of the catchers, and he was telling me about the babies. He asked me if color matters to me, and I told him no. We pay the same and we handle every horse the same, no matter what they look like. Then he asked if we wanted the mares. So let’s save them too, because we can.

So IF WE CAN RAISE ENOUGH TO PURCHASE AND VET 7 MORE KIDS, they will be arriving tomorrow just in time to get their bloodwork drawn. Then we can come back when the paperwork is clear and pick them up. We have a chance to save the moms, so I cannot in good faith, not at least give everyone the opportunity to save their lives. At this point the trailers will both be full, so thankfully, we will be able to focus on getting these horses home and placed.

Below are some of the ones we (YOU) just saved, that are currently at Mama Mel’s Urgent Care Nursery.

Thank you as always, and please know that although we appreciate each and every dollar, we NEVER want anyone to feel pressure or do more than is right or comfortable for them. But we can never get enough prayers.

Thank you for saving the kids below!!
