Together We Can Do Extraordinary Things!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things!

Over the past few weeks and months, the entire world has been coming together to stand up, help out, give back, and heal. Whether that’s through donations to community organizations, celebrating doctors and nurses at shift changes, or reaching out to a neighbor to help with groceries, generosity has been helping the entire world get through this global pandemic. Together.

Today, May 5, 2020, All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc.(AAE) is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity and giving. As you know, the specific charitable purposes of AAE are to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected, abandoned, unwanted, and/or slaughter-bound animals, primarily equines (wild and domestic); to provide animals with food, shelter, care and handling; and veterinary care, as needed; to utilize a strategic process for matching healthy, rehabilitated animals with compatible, loving, and permanent adoptive homes; to provide long term care for unadoptable animals; and to educate the community about abused, neglected, abandoned, unwanted, and/or slaughter-bound animals, primarily equines.

But we can’t do this without you!

Not only do we need your support, we need your help to spread the word.

Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis.

URGENT UPDATE

Just since yesterday afternoon, the numbers are already up to 13 BABIES and more by FRIDAY!

I know everyone is struggling, but we simply need to know how many of these babies we can save. Not only do we have to pay bail, vet and transport them, we HAVE TO HAVE ENOUGH money to take care of them until we find them homes. If we cannot properly care for them, we cannot save them.

This is a scary time for everyone, and I don’t want anyone to give more than they can. But IF you are able and want to help us save as many of these babies as we can, please help!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS DONATED! I AM NOT ASKING YOU TO DO MORE! I am just hopeful that other folks will want to help us save the babies, especially since we are not able to save the mares. All I can do is give everyone a chance to save these lives if they want to. It would be irresponsible to not apprise folks of the urgent need due to what is transpiring.

Thank you for sharing. If we had a thousand people donate $2, we could do wonders. It doesn’t take much. Thank you!

WE ARE IN GO MODE! Sadly, we are heading into the busiest part of the year. We have 5 babies RIGHT NOW in the feedlot, and by the middle of the week there most likely will be more. We are also still on standby for the other trapper’s foals.

Understandably, (like every other rescue), our reserves have been depleted. We need to raise funds to go get these babies.

We were on standby last weekend, and luckily the horses broke out of the trap. PTL! However, he has since set up another trap and is expecting to bring in the horses. (This is the trapper that brought in 70 babies in two days, a few years ago).

PLEASE help IF YOU CAN! If you are not in a position to help financially, please say a prayer and share this with as many folks as you can. These lives are in danger and they still matter! Sadly, slaughter stops for no one and nothing.

On a happy note, we had the first baby ever born at Chilly Pepper join the family. His name is Prince Tyler and he will be a major part of our Sunshine & Smiles program. I thought his pix (above) might bring a smile, even in these changing times.

Below, Bruiser & LuLu together forever!! Ash & Tucker also went to their new home together! Great success for these 4 kids. YOU MADE IT POSSIBLE. THANK YOU!

Tomorrow, we’re launching our new webinar on wild horses [RSVP!]

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

We’ll be the first to say it: It can be difficult to stay up to speed with the complex issues affecting our nation’s wild horses and burros. With so many federal agencies, acronyms and applicable laws, it’s easy to get confused.

That’s why we’re going to break it down for you TOMORROW, April 30, with the launch of our ‘Wild Horses 101’ webinar series. You can RSVP here.

We’ll be discussing the origins of wild horses in the Americas, Wild Horse Annie and the beginning of the movement to save America’s wild horses, some of the major policies and proposals being implemented and considered by the Bureau of Land Management, and so much more!

We want this to be an interactive and engaging experience, so during the webinar, you will have the chance to ask questions and we’d be glad to answer them.

We hope to hear from you and look forward to speaking with you all,

American Wild Horse Campaign

P.S. — If you already registered before the webinar was postponed, you do not need to register again.

Remembering Rusty (1986-2020)

Remembering Rusty

Last week, we lost one of our most beloved AAE heroes.
   
Rusty has been such a beloved symbol of AAE for so long.
He taught so many people about the kindness of horses, the greatness of horses,
the mystery of horses, and the strength of horses.
He held gently so many of our hearts, and some more than others.
Rusty came to us way back in 2010 from his own hero,
his amazing mom that was in the military reserves and facing deployment.
She was also dealing with some financial challenges and
wanted only the best for her special guy.
She worried about his fate when she’d be gone for an extended time.
AAE welcomed this lovely ol’ guy with open arms.
Rusty was 24.
  
Rusty had already experienced a full life.
As best I recall 10 years later, he had started on the Arabian Horse racing circuit,
then dabbled in various disciplines in the arena before moving on to “happy trails”.
When he first came to us, he participated in a small riding lesson program with one of our founding fosters.
He transitioned to AAE where he became a fixture in our New Volunteer Orientation program and
various Youth programs while waiting for his forever home.
  
After what we thought was going to be the perfect home passed on him,
we realized how much he meant to AAE, and AAE was meant to be his forever.
    
Fortunately, Rusty lived a good life at AAE.  He had few problems, he was an easy-keeper, and
his youthful and swanky spirit captured the hearts of many.
Rusty put the exclamation mark at after “senior horses are so special”!
  
 
Rusty, Sparky, Finn, and LoneStar were a dream team.  Ruby was his special lady.
Rusty was 34.  He made the decision.  He left us during the night, on his terms.
No goodbyes to us.  No goodbyes from us.
We’re all so broken-hearted.  Goodbye special guy.
You touched our world in so many unspoken ways, and
we’re all so grateful you’ve left us with so many memories.
We’ll remember you forever, Rust.
Love you, ol’ man!

Oh My, A New Tractor, Thank You!

Balancing the sad news, we have some wonderful news.
AAE received a really special gift; one that will make so much of our “hard” work so much more achievable and with much less of the “heavy” burden, especially looking forward to working with our new property.
THANK YOU, Dick and Sue L.!
It’s already been put to good use, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
  
This is such an immeasurable representation of your love of AAE and your long support and dedication to
the health and happiness of our horses (and all of our humans).
Thank YOU, Thank YOU, Thank YOU!!!
Remember to select All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. as your charity of choice,
AmazonSmile donates to AAE with every purchase, at no cost to you!
This is a FREE and EASY way YOU can help raise funds for AAE.

This Earth Day we’re launching a 24-hour fundraising drive to save Wyoming’s mustangs from eradication

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The future of the Wyoming Checkerboard wild horse herds is in danger. The Bureau of Land Management’s proposed Wyoming Wild Horse Wipeout would result in the state losing more than HALF of its wild horse habitat.

Nearly 40% of the state’s wild horse population would be roundup and removed from the wild — all to allow the livestock industry and private ranchers to replace them with cattle and sheep after targeting the state’s wild horses for elimination for years.

That’s why on this Earth Day, we’ve set the 24-hour goal of raising $10,000 toward the AWHC Wyoming Legal Defense Fund.

We know this is a difficult time and many of you are not in a position to donate right now.

But at a time when the BLM is threatening to round up as many as 20,000 wild horses per year and proposing the eradication of Wyoming’s Checkerboard horses, your support is what allows us to: continue spreading the word about this cruel and costly plan, organize throughout the country in support of America’s wild horses, fight back in the courts through our legal team, operate the world’s largest humane fertility control program for wild horses, and so much more.

Can we count on you to make your first donation of 2020 by giving $20.20 or more on Earth Day to support our legal work to defend wild horses in Wyoming and all across the West this year? Wild horses don’t have a voice, so we’re giving them a FIGHTING voice through our work!

Thank you,

American Wild Horse Campaign

P.S. — We’ve gone to court three times to defend the Wyoming Checkerboard horses — and each time we’ve won. Now we’re gearing up for a fourth legal battle … and this one is literally the last stand for these iconic mustangs. Please help if you can.

Countdown is on, Big Day of Giving is Coming!

Your Donation Makes a Difference!

We introduced Cody earlier this year, and look at him now. Cody is a 1999 Arabian gelding that came to AAE after long-time family health issues with his owner and the passing of his caretaker. When Cody arrived at AAE, he was very under weight and in much need of dental care. After intake, he was put on a pellet diet. All of his basic needs were updated including dental and farrier care, vaccines, dewormer and a new microchip.

Cody enjoys people, loves grooming and attention. He has been getting a refresher with his ground manners, as he can be a bit pushy. He appears sound, and he enjoys working! He has been ridden lightly a handful of times, walk, trot, canter, but needs some conditioning and rebuilding before asking much more. He seems to know how to move off the leg, and seems to be generally calm, quiet, and easy. Cody is ready for his new home. He could be a fun restart project for an experienced person; he’s not suitable for a beginner at this time.

It is because of the support from our volunteer and donors that horses like Cody get a second chance. Your donations makes a difference!

Save the Date, May 7, 2020, for the Sacramento Region Community Foundation’s Big Day of Giving! This year there are 615 nonprofit participating! We are excited to be a part of this community grown

UPDATE: We’re launching a weekend of action to SAVE Wyoming’s wild horses

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

At the beginning of this week, we reached out to you about a devastating plan being proposed that represents an existential threat to Wyoming’s wild horses.

The stakes have never been higher for Wyoming’s Checkerboard wild horse herd: Over 3,000 of them could be rounded up and removed from public lands while nearly 2.5 MILLION acres of wild horse habitat could be permanently eliminated.

That’s why AWHC launched an official action center and is kicking off a weekend of action so we can do everything in our power to save these horses!

Here Are 5 Ways You Can #KeepWyomingWyld This Weekend

April 30 is the deadline to submit public comments in opposition to the Bureau of Land Management’s Wyoming Wild Horse Wipeout proposal.

That gives us less than two weeks to PROVE to the BLM that the American people oppose this devastating mustang eradication plan.

Wyoming’s tourism slogan is “Don’t Fence Me In,” and the state’s iconic wild horses symbolize that sentiment. In fact, the Pilot Butte Wild Horse Scenic Loop in the Checkerboard is promoted by the state’s tourism boards as “something you and your family will never forget because Sweetwater County’s cherished wild horses are living examples of a wide-open landscape and untamed frontier spirit.”

Incredibly, the BLM’s plan would eradicate every single wild horse from the viewing loop, fencing these symbols of the wide open West in dismal feedlots!

Write to Wyoming’s tourism boards here and ask them to join our efforts to prevent the destruction of the iconic Wyoming Checkerboard mustangs.

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has the power to oppose and potentially change the course of the Wyoming Wild Horse Wipeout. In fact, his state is looking to purchase a large chunk of these lands from Occidental Petroleum and could designate the area as a recreational resource in which wild horses are protected.

Take part in AWHC’s national petition drive to demonstrate the immense public pressure in opposition to the eradication of Wyoming’s wild horses.

If we’re going to save these horses, then we need to get everyone involved, including our friends, family, and coworkers.

So many people who love wild horses aren’t aware of what’s at stake in Wyoming — And just a couple minutes of their time can make a difference.

Our legal team has been heavily involved in fighting back against attempts by the BLM and the livestock industry to round up tens of thousands of wild horses, permanently remove them from public lands, and perform dangerous sterilization surgeries on mares. We’ve been fighting the attempt to eradicate the Wyoming Checkerboard horses since 2011.

Not only have we achieved a number of important legal protections but also our legal team has scored victories in fourteen separate lawsuits filed over the last nine years!

We understand that these are difficult times and that not everyone is in a position to donate. But we are relying on donations from supporters like you to power our legal team so they can defend Wyoming, and our country’s, wild horses.

Wild horses don’t have a voice, so we need to be theirs.

Thank you for getting involved and stay safe,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION AND YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT! HAPPY NEWS FOR BRUISER

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis.

Thank you so much for your love and support. Your donations make it possible to keep on doing our work, even in the midst of the Pandemic. Sadly, (but understandably), as the Pandemic increases, folks doing rescue are all seeing their budgets decreasing. So we want to send out an extra special THANK YOU to you for helping us keep saving lives.

Sadly, the slaughter trucks have not missed a beat, and are still continuing to roll.

BRUISER UPDATE! PTL!! Our beautiful little boy had something in that beautiful head click. I think his wires all came together. He is now drinking his milk without issue. I no longer have to give him 2 shots a day, and he is rocking his little world. Obviously he could still crash, but it appears to be much less likely than before – woohooo!!!

THANK YOU FROM BRUISER – for hanging in there and never giving up!

Sending prayers for all of y’all out there.

We also have great news about the little baby we had at the feedlot. Little Lona was transferred to Mama Mel’s, and then picked up by Bev Boshart. She is one of our amazing Chilly Pepper Family, and her rescue has taken 2 foals last year and hooked them up with a Mama and she took on the one we just rescued. Yes, she did it again. Lona now has her own horsey Mama. We are so grateful to Bev for all she does. It’s Teamwork that makes the Dream work!

Please stay safe out there and keep us in your prayers. Rescue never stops. Even though the funding has slowed down, we have not. So THANK YOU AGAIN for your wonderful donations.

Destiny is doing well. The clay is working and her wound is healing wonderfully!

I understand many folks are in financial crisis. If you are not in a position to safely donate, please just share this information.

Below, Bruiser feeling good! LuLu is also doing great and getting chubby, lol.

40% of Wyoming’s wild horses are at risk of being rounded up and removed from public lands.

We have two weeks to gather public comments OPPOSING this cruel and unprecedented assault on Wyoming’s cherished horses.

ACTION ALERT: Add your name here to help us STOP the Wyoming Wild Horse Wipeout and help save the Checkerboard wild horses!

The Wyoming Wild Horse Wipeout By The Numbers:

For nearly a decade, the Checkerboard wild horse population has been a top target of the powerful Rock Springs Grazing Association and the livestock industry. Now, the Bureau of Land Management is preparing to bend to their demands and deal a devastating, irreversible blow to Wyoming’s wild horses.

The scope of the proposed plan is unprecedented, and will result in the destruction of the magnificent wild horses of the Wyoming Checkerboard. If we fail to generate a massive show of force, these horses will be lost forever.

Please, help save these magnificent mustangs at a time when their survival is on the line: Add your name to oppose the Wyoming Wild Horse Wipeout →

BRUISER UPDATE – RE EMERGENCY VET VISIT

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis.

UPDATE – WE RECEIVED GOOD NEWS!!!

His upper airways were compromised and that is why he was having trouble breathing. Thankfully they are clear now and although he continues to have issues, it appears most of it is staying out of his lungs.

He may need scoped if these issues continue, and he is definitely not out of the woods, but we are not losing him this morning. Both Docs said go back to the bottle.

It was terrifying listening to him gurgle and choke this morning. His little nostrils are too small to use their scope, so we are heading home, praising God that although he sounded like Dandelion, he has a real chance to get through this.

Bruiser is crashing. It’s 3 a.m. and I can hear him struggling to breathe. He has fought so hard to be here, and we finally got his blood test coming back close to normal. It was a big improvement, but he was still having issues.

Bruiser is having trouble when he drinks his milk. We always take them off the bottle asap, and many times they never even see a bottle. However, this is when Bruiser’s troubles started.

He was “off”, or “special” if you will, when we got him. His band left him alone to die. It is obvious there were multiple reasons for Mama to leave him. In the wild, if a baby is sick or injured, the stallion or others in the band will often kill it, or they just leave it behind. It is harsh, but is is survival and they do not want predators attracted.

He was not a “dummy” foal, but his brain was not fully wired yet. He has been improving, but this morning I can hear the pneumonia. He has been on antibiotics and Doc has tried numerous ones to help him, but this is a critical situation at this point.

I am not sure if Comstock can save him or not, (they have a hospital on sight).
It is so hard, because this is not a baby that has been depressed or lays around moping. He is feisty and runs and plays, but he is crashing right now.

It is definitely NOT in the budget, but I have to try and give him one last chance.

PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN! There is so much heartache out there. I am hoping and praying he will have a chance, but we can only do what our budget allows. At this time, it’s pretty scary.

I understand many folks are in financial crisis. If you are not in a position to safely donate, please just share this information.

An incredible response

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

My name is Deb Walker and I’m AWHC’s Field Representative here in Nevada. I coordinate our amazing team of volunteers on the Virginia Range implementing the world’s largest humane management program for wild horses.

AWHC reached out on Monday asking for donations of $30 to cover the costs of the cornerstone of this program — the $30 fertility control vaccine known as PZP. We’ve had an incredible response and outpouring of support since then.

As a result, we can cover the costs of 321 (!) annual vaccines for wild mares. Our team of volunteers is working hard and I want to let them know we have the supplies we need to not only maintain this program but to expand it!

The one year anniversary of this program is next week. I understand if you are unable to, but if you can, I’d greatly appreciate if you could be one of the 179 generous supporters we need to chip in $30 to reach our 500 PZP vaccine goal before the end of the week.

Thank you so much,

Deb Walker


Nevada Field Representative
American Wild Horse Campaign

 

Read Our Previous Message Below: 

We know that this is a difficult time for the country and for many of you. If you are not in a position to financially support our work, we completely understand. But for those of you who can, give us a moment to explain why we’re asking for $30.

In Nevada’s Virginia Range, AWHC operates the world’s largest humane management program for wild horses. Next week marks the one year anniversary of the establishment of this historic initiative to prove to the world that there is a humane way to manage wild horse populations that doesn’t require mass roundups, crowded holding corrals, dangerous sterilization surgeries or slaughter.

The cornerstone of this highly successful program is the remote darting of wild mares with the scientifically proven fertility vaccine known as ‘PZP’. Our work on the Virginia Range continues uninterrupted despite the COVID-19 pandemic and our volunteers are working hard, day-in and day-out, to vaccinate these mares.

The price of a single mare’s annual PZP vaccine is just $30.

Compare that to the tens of thousands of dollars the Bureau of Land Management spends on the roundup and long-term holding involved in the removal of a single horse.

Let alone the $5 BILLION figure the Acting Director of the BLM is citing as the cost of a plan to round up over 100,000 horses from public lands over the next decade, with the goal of rounding up as many as 20,000 in 2020 alone.

For those of you who are able, we’re asking if you will spare $30 on the 30th to give our darters in Nevada the resources they need to prevent horses from being removed by using this safe and proven vaccine.

Thank you,

American Wild Horse Campaign

NEWBORN BABY(S) AT THE SHIPPER – SEVERELY INJURED MARE – CAN WE KEEP HER OFF THE SLAUGHTER TRUCK?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis.

MEET “DESTINY” – As you can see, she has quite the injury and needs vet care as soon as possible. If she cannot be fixed, we would give her a peaceful ending. However, I am hopeful that with lots of TLC we can save her.

URGENT – RECEIVED A PHONE CALL TODAY FOR A NEWBORN (Not sure how many) ON THE FEED LOT. Thankfully, (if you can find anything to be thankful about in these situations) baby gets to stay with Mama for a few more days. When Mama ships, we will need to be there. (I DO NOT have an option to save Mama). It is beyond heartbreaking, but we have to focus on the ones we can save.

SEVERELY INJURED MARE – DESTINY – This mare’s injury is in such a place it may be extremely hard for it to heal. At the very least she needs to be kept off the slaughter truck. WE ARE HER ONLY CHANCE! If you blow up the photo you can see how big her gash is, and that she already has swelling in her tummy. She needs help asap.

I have a vet scheduled for Monday to see if she can help her. (Can’t get her until we raise the funds to save and vet her.) We are also doing Coggins, Health Certs etc. on the other kids. Out of 4 TB colts, only one was healthy. Sadly, our beautiful little buckskin passed during the night. I was told she was eating and drinking but not feeling well, and this morning when they went out to feed she had passed. We have a huge hernia to repair, a big gouge in the chest of one of the colts, and a severely swollen hock on another one.

All of these horses were considered to have no value. They were all “thrown away”. Let’s give them the chance they deserve.

Can you imagine that mare being pushed around in the crowded slaughter truck? Her wound getting bigger and bigger Let’s save her from a horrific trailer ride and imminent slaughter.

I understand many folks are in financial crisis. If you are not in a position to safely donate, please just share this information.

Boots & Bling Update

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

During these uncertain times, our thoughts are with you, our AAE community, your families and friends.
We have YOU, thank you!

 

 Important Updates

Out of an abundance of caution for your well-being and that of our volunteers, participants, supporters, and vendors, AAE made the difficult decision to postpone our Boots & Bling event from May 2, 2020 to a late Summer/early Fall date.
Due to the uncertainties with the current COVID-19 situation, our event venue has a scheduling moratorium in place.  As soon as we can we can move forward with scheduling, taking into consideration the safety of everyone involved, we will announce a new date.
Boots and Bling is critical to AAE’s annual funding, and it is also a very important event where all of AAE’s supporters can come together.
We assure you, Boots will not be canceled.
The BEST part is we’ll have more time to create a BETTER event!!
We hope you are as excited as we are to get the date set!

Again, out of an abundance of caution for our volunteer and community safety,
we have implemented numerous measures related to COVID-19 which have impacted our day to day activities at AAE.
Though we have many horses looking for homes, our ADOPTION VISITS are temporarily on hold.
If you are interested in adopting a horse, we are still working remotely to discuss adoption interest and review inquiries.
Our VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES have been temporarily limited to small teams
carrying out essential activities to assure the horses are well cared for.
We continue accessing veterinary, hoof and dental care, as needed.
 
NEW VOLUNTEER ORIENTATIONS have been temporarily postponed;
however, we are still collecting information from
anyone interested in volunteering, once we resume normal day-to-day activities.
AAE’S USED TACK STORE is temporarily closed.
We look forward to re-opening and resuming store hours as we can.
Store sales and tack donations are vital to our fundraising efforts.

April’s QUARTERLY VOLUNTEER MEETING has been canceled.

We’ll resume quarterly meetings as soon as appropriate.
 
We know these are trying times, and we are all feeling the impacts on many ways.
For the good of the horses!

We thank you for your understanding.

We will get through this together!
From all of us at All About Equine, thank you for your continuing support!
If you’re able to continue support us through these uncertain times,
please consider donating today.

When you think of COVID-19, think of GLITTER

 

Unless you’re conducting essential activities, please stay at home and help flatten the curve!

 

SADLY, WE LOST HOPE,

but we haven’t lost hope

Though things were looking good for HOPE, they took a quick turn, and we were left with no good options.
HOPE came to us because of an eye issue that had been neglected for at least the last year and a half,
likely much longer.

After initial evaluation, no definitive cause could be determined with certainty (e.g. injury, infection, tumor, etc).
We made the decision to move forward with surgery to remove her eye.  Unfortunately, the surgeon found a large tumor (melanoma) behind the eye.  Because melanomas are not typically lethal, and because they can “respond in different ways” (e.g. become dormant, grow slowly, or grow rapidly), the surgeon felt the chance for a comfortable life was possible, and he closed the incision site, giving HOPE a chance.

 

HOPE made it through surgery without issues.  She was thriving.  Though swollen, she seemed much more comfortable, was eating well, and she was enjoying lots of TLC.  Two weeks passed after surgery, swelling was reducing, and HOPE was doing great!

A few days later, we noticed some new drainage above HOPE’s incision.  A quick trip to the vet for rebandaging resulted in some unanticipated sad news.  It appeared the skin/tissue was dying.

When the doc removed the sutures and the dying tissue, he discovered the tumor had grown rapidly.
The recently empty orbit was now filled with tumor.  Though we hoped for no to slow growth, sadly, luck wasn’t on HOPE’s side.  At the rate the tumor had grown, it was highly unlikely the eye would heal, and the tumor was so large and deep, and there was nothing more we could do other than help her across the Rainbow Bridge.
HOPE lost her battle, but our hope lives on.  HOPE touched our lives in ways we’ll never forget.
Farewell sweet girl, you deserved so much better.
We’re thankful HOPE had some relief, good food, and her final days were filled with love and kindness through the end.
Thank you for helping HOPE.

On another kind of BOOTS note,

we need your ol’ boots!

If you’re like many during the “stay at home” situation, and you’re doing some pre-spring cleaning….
We need your gently used, unwanted boots!
   
Our decor plan for Boots & Bling includes what, of course?
Boots! and we still need some more.
Also, the if you’re familiar with the R3C Wild Horse Program at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center, the inmate trainers are sorely in need of men’s western boots. They currently have 8 inmate mustang trainers, and they need boots. The soles are literally falling off of their boots. The program relies on donations of used boots and thrift store finds. But their sources have been slim pickins, especially since everything is now shut down due to COVID.
If you happen to have any Western boots you no longer need, we can use them for our Boots & Bling event or pass them forward to the R3C program.  These men work hard, without complaint (even about the condition of their boots) & are changing their lives while gentling wild mustangs.
After Boots & Bling, we’ll transfer the decor boots to AAE’s Used Tack Store, where all sales benefit the horses at AAE.  We’ll also be an ongoing source of men’s boots to support the R3C program.  You can donate boots for the R3C program at the store (once we resume store hours).  Be sure to specify the boots are for R3C on your donation form.

 A Breath of Fresh Air to Your Inbox

We are finally into our first couple days of spring! In South Acworth NH our first day of spring we were covered in a couple inches of snow, it was a beautiful morning and all gone by the evening. We genuinely hope our farm updates and stories in this news letter help to distract you from what is going on in the “real” world right now. Ann and I made the decision on Friday to close the farm to visitors for at least the next two weeks. We believe this is the socially responsible thing to do. We hope you all stay healthy and happy!

Our annual Cabin Fever Auction is ending tonight at 9pm on Facebook. We had lots of awesome items donated this year such as tack, tasty food, a safari trip, and lots of hand-made items and art! This auction helps us to pay for a lot of our much needed grain supplies, de-wormers, annual vet care for vaccinations, dental work, blood work, and fecals, fencing that needs to be replaced, and hoof trims.

Our online auction is only accessible through Facebook, we are sorry about any inconvenience this causes you.

TAKE ME TO THE AUCTION!

Whats new on the farm?

We have quite a few new animals on the farm since our last updates. It is always exciting getting to know and love each individual. Below are all of the new rescue faces!

This past Wednesday we had our veterinarian out for a full day of dentals, spring shots, blood work and donkey and mule check ups. A lot of the animals we take in need some serious dental work, unfortunately for our wallet this time around was a full day of mostly dental work.
Each animals vet work, shots, fecals, blood work, tests, dentals, check ups etc. cost us roughly 500 dollars per equine. We do NOT skimp when it comes to the animals well being, if something needs to be done that our vet recommends and that we think it is best for their health and happiness, we do it. That is why we post so much, why we spend so much time fundraising, Its all for the animals.

Hobie and Walton’s progress

Manny of you have been following the story of the horse and the donkey who we rescued last November. They were nothing but skin and bones, maybe a week away from death. We are happy to announce they are both now thriving! Both of the boys are at a healthy weight and are on arthritis medicine. They are like spring chickens now! Walton runs around the field tearing it up like a wild man, and Hobie takes comfortable walks around the field, and has enough spunk in him to boss around a Belgian draft mule. Not too shabby for a 25 year old horse and a 35 year old donkey! Walton was recently diagnosed with third eyelid cancer, we are working very closely with our vet to monitor him and make sure he is comfortable and not in pain while waiting for his eye ointment to come in. If the new ointment does not work, we will have surgery done where his third eyelid will be removed. Fingers crossed!

A Tribute to Our Mascot 

This is incredibly difficult to write but of course we need to share with all of you. On Saturday we lost our mascot Marlin to colic. He was 36 years old and in excellent health. This loss has taken its toll on all of us at the rescue. Marlin was more than his huge physical presence. He grounded all of us, including the other animals. Gertie his companion is suffering his loss along with us. They were joined at the hip and she is grieving.

I saw Marlin’s picture online in 2009. He was going to ship to slaughter on Christmas Eve. The gentle expression in his eyes reached out from the computer and I knew I had to have him. I had always advised folks against purchasing an animal sight unseen, but I disregarded my own advice and bought him and had him delivered. He was a retired Amish work mule. He knew how to drive, but not go under saddle. I took riding lessons on him for about six months. He became a rock solid trail mule. He became such a well-loved fixture at the rescue that we made the decision to keep him as our mascot. A decision we have never regretted.

He was truly a gentle giant. He touched so many lives. He gave confidence to unsure riders, to little kids, proving that big doesn’t necessarily mean scary, playing his part as SYA’s mascot was a roll he loved and played to a T.

We will miss you forever Marlin, Rest In Peace.

SLAUGHTER TRUCKS ARE ROLLING – AN EMERGENCY CALL TO SAVE 6 (POSSIBLY MORE) PRECIOUS LIVES!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi everyone. 1st and foremost, I hope and pray everyone is hanging in there during this time of crisis.

SADLY however, the slaughter trucks CONTINUE TO ROLL! I received a call to see if we can save these 6 beautiful souls from slaughter. We are their only chance as they will not be heading to an auction, simply loaded on a trailer and shipped to their death.

We are working with a local rescue who will be working along side us to help us try and get these kids placed locally.

I have a potential adoption for the shaggy little buckskin and for the 2 year old mare. However, none of them are safe as of right now and they need your help. We will save as many of them as we can, based on our ability to “save them”, get them vetted, transported and have appropriate funds to make sure they are fed and cared for properly. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ME STAND IN FRONT OF THEM AND PICK AND CHOOSE WHO GETS TO LIVE! That is the worst feeling.

I truly understand so many folks have lost their income and things seem really sketchy right now. Please if you are in that situation just say a big prayer for these kids.

When God puts these kids in front of us I know He expects us to try and save them. We can only do our best, but it is so not fair for them to be slaughtered because I didn’t try.

SO, IF you are in a position to donate or possibly adopt a yearling thoroughbred colt, please do so. Please share this far and wide as it will be a true miracle if we can pull this off under the circumstances.

We need BAIL, TEMPORARY LODGING, HAULING AND VETTING FUNDS, not to mention feed etc. If by some miracle we can save them and there is any money left over, it will go for milk money, hay, feed, vetting etc. for the kids here.

Bruiser is really enjoying his milk and says THANK YOU for saving him.

PEPE’s 1st surgery went well, and after his checkup the vet feels she has a chance to “finish” closing the rest of the tear in his upper throat. So one more surgery and (God Willing) he will be a happy little camper.

You have saved so many lives. Let’s keep on making a difference and saving lives!

Hugs & Love
Palomino
