JUST FOUND OUT I HAVE ANOTHER 5+ BABIES TO PICK UP IN WA ON MONDAY – CAN YOU HELP ME SAVE THOSE TOO???

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

UPDATE – Just got the call for another 5+ babies this Monday. I need to let him know if we can take them on and save their tiny little lives as well as get these kids all fixed up.

ONCE AGAIN – Y’ALL DID IT!

You saved these horses from being loaded onto the truck of death. Sadly, these kids are in awful shape, and we have already had numerous “emergency vet visits”, beginning the day they arrived.

We just received a phone call about another orphan that we need to go get, most likely today.

Our coffers are basically empty, due to our recent, (mostly unexpected) expenses.Since y’all make this possible, I wanted to share where your latest donations went for April (so far), so you would know why we need help so we can get these horses the medical care they need and get the newest orphan(s) picked up.

1). Vet bills for this last group of 11 – $ 2,685.00

Additional vet bills April $ 337.48 + $1123.00

Veterinary Total So Far in April $ 4,145.48
2) Additional Milk Products for orphans $ 849.20
3) Rescue the 11 Horses $ 4,725.00
4) 3 Months worth of Hay $ 7,200.00
5) Trailer repairs – $ 2,150.00

________________

$ 19,069.68

The total output for April was much higher than normal. We usually only buy one month’s worth of hay at a time, but due to the shortage, this was how we had to “get ‘er done” to make sure we have enough feed for the horses. Thank you to everyone who made that possible!

We picked up a 2 year old thoroughbred, who needed immediate, emergency vet care, and after 3 visits we had to euthanize him. I have never been so angry. Poor Benny could not eat or drink. If you didn’t pay attention, he just looked like a horse that was starving to death. Due to a horrible rope injury, (that is the best guess), he ended up with a chunk of bone in his neck (which appeared to be surrounded by scar tissue), that made it impossible for him to finish swallowing. Doc was very clear when he said nothing could have fixed him. The people that caused the injury didn’t even have the decency to free him from his pain. They just dumped him for slaughter.

BUDDY, the 5 year old gelding who was dumped after being injured at his home, has a horrible eye injury and most likely needs it removed. Due to our high vet bill, I cannot get him the treatment he needs until we have funds to cover our existing medical expenses. He has something wrong with his teeth and was also slowly starving to death. He is now eating mash and absolutely ecstatic about being able to actually eat. HE NEEDS IMMEDIATE VETERINARY ATTENTION FOR HIS EYE!

So many of these kids needed urgent vet care, and ALL of it was because of rotten people who decided to throw them away instead of getting them the help they need.

So once again, I am asking our Chilly Pepper Family to step up and help us get these kids whatever they need, as well as the groceries and a chance to start their new lives. They are not out of the woods by a long shot.

April 19, 2019

 

Ears the news…

I apologize for the lapse between newsletters. It’s been a rough winter. I recently lost my first donkey Lula at age 28 . That was a tough one for me. Jeff got her for me as a gift and we brought her home in the back of a van when she was 16 weeks old.  It is because of Lula that I began to reach out to other donkey owners, read everything I could get my hands on about donkeys and their care, their nutritional needs, behavioral needs, and what it takes to start a rescue. The rest is history.

We have taken in a lot of animals with medical issues, those needing a lot of “fattening up”, and those with severe hoof issues.  The weather has been challenging as well. Thankfully we are finally getting some warmer, sunny days and  life is looking a bit more optimistic.

We have recently said farewell to two of our devoted board members, Joan Gemme, and Jean Cornish. They will be missed. We wish them well in their new endeavors. Thankfully Joan will still be volunteering to help with the auction and side projects for which we are very grateful!

We are in the process of looking for a new treasurer for the BOD as well as someone gifted in the art of fund raising. If you or anyone you know might be interested please let me know.

We currently have several adoptions pending and several in the works, just waiting for i’s to be dotted and t’s to be crossed. Shadow will be going to a wonderful home where she will have the company of many other donkeys of varying sizes. Sol and Luna will be going to their new home next month, as hopefully will be Ruth and Ezra.  We have people interested in Molly and Shadow, so hopefully all will be in new, loving homes before long. We love having them here but it is no substitute for being doted on by forever owners.  I am keeping my fingers crossed for the adoption of Manny and Sibley as well.

We are having our annual Open House on May 18th this year and hope to see you there! It’s a fun day to hang with the animals, other like minded folks, share food and a good time.  It will be held from 11:00 to 4:00. Please join us and bring your friends!

I would also like to publicly welcome’s our newest employee, Kim Wilson who now works weekends. I get a day off!!  Kim is a hard worker with a wonderful sense of humor; paramount for this job, and a great love for the animals.  We are happy to have her on board!

I will do my best to get back on track with the timely writing of this newsletter.

HUGE victory for our movement — here’s what it means:

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Thanks to your support, the horses on the Virginia Range in Nevada will continue to live safe, happy lives, free to roam on the land they call home.

In 2017, the Nevada Department of Agriculture abruptly terminated our partnership to safely and effectively manage the Virginia Range wild horses using fertility control. The program was necessary to humanely reduce population growth rates in this historic mustang population whose habitat is increasingly impacted by development.

In response, we and our local coalition partners have been working hard to restart the program. We mobilized thousands of calls and emails. Local groups held 63 vigils outside the State Capitol in Carson City.

We are proud to tell you that the grassroots pressure worked…with a big assist from the business community, especially tech company Blockchains LLC, and Nevada Assembly Minority Leader Jim Wheeler! Last Tuesday we signed a Cooperative Agreement with the state to immediately resume this critical program that will humanely manage these majestic horses using safe and proven fertility control.

This news isn’t just about one state or one range. It’s about the future of this entire movement and the freedom of wild horses everywhere.

In Nevada, we can create a model to demonstrate that there is another way to manage wild horses that doesn’t involve costly and cruel roundups.

Now, we need your help. Our volunteers and staff are in the field as I write this, implementing this lifesaving program to keep wild horses wild by providing a humane alternative to removing wild horses from their homes on the range. And we’re sustaining other programs across the country to protect wild horses. Will you donate right now to support us?

The alternative to success is too awful to imagine: more round-ups; horses confined in tiny pens for the rest of their lives, or worse, sent to slaughter; breaking apart the families that residents have come to know and love for generations.

We can show that there is a better way to steward our iconic wild horse and burro populations. Please help us to make it happen by donating now.

Thank you,

Suzanne Roy

Co-Sponsor the Bi-Partisan PAST Act of 2019!

The following is from the American Horse Council:

American Horse Council Action Alert

Tell Your Senators to Co-Sponsor the Bi-Partisan PAST Act of 2019!

Following up on commitments made to the horse industry earlier this year, Sens. Crapo (R-ID) and Warner (D-VA) have led a bipartisan charge to re-introduce the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act of 2019 (S. 1007).  Other original co-sponsors include Sens. Blumenthal (D-CT), Casey (D-PA), Collins (R-ME), Daines (R-MT), Feinstein (D-CA), Markey (D-MA), Moran (R-KS), Toomey (R-PA) and Wyden (D-OR).  If your senator is an original cosponsor, be sure to contact his or her office to express thanks for taking the lead on equine welfare issues.  If you don’t see your senator’s name listed, be sure to take this opportunity to send a letter to your lawmakers’ offices to urge co-sponsorship of the PAST Act.

As you know, S. 1007 will strengthen the Horse Protection Act and finally end the soring of Tennessee Walking Horses, Spotted Saddle Horses, and Racking Horses. The American Horse Council, along with most major national horse show organizations and state and local organizations, supports the PAST Act. To send a letter to your senators urging them to sign on as co-sponsors and move this important bill forward, please click on the following link:

New Agreement for Virginia Range Mustangs Fertility Control Program

On Tuesday, AWHC and the Nevada Department of Agriculture signed a new agreement to implement a humane fertility control management program for the Virginia Range horses. The program aims to reduce population growth rates in the historic herd, which lives in a 300,000-acre range increasingly impacted by rapid development in the northern Nevada area. Our program’s certified darters will begin working this week in cooperation with the tech company, Blockchains, LLC – the largest landowner in the Virginia Range — to deliver the PZP immunocontraceptive vaccine to wild horses in Innovation Park in Storey County! Read more about this critically important program below.

 

AB 128 Passes Out of California’s Assembly Parks and Wildlife Committee

AB 128, a bill to increase protections from slaughter for California’s wild and domestic horses cleared its first hurdle on Tuesday when it passed out of the California Assembly Parks, Water and Wildlife Committee on a 10-1 vote (with 3 abstentions). AWHC is proud to sponsor this bill in conjunction with bill author Assemblyman Todd Gloria, who has been a leading voice for the welfare of California’s horses and an outspoken opponent of the federal government’s plan to sell California wild horses from the Devil’s Garden Territory without limitation on slaughter. Read more about the bill and the latest developments below.

CHILLY PEPPER NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW. 911 FOR THIS POOR BOY. – WILL YOU KEEP “HE NEEDS A MIRACLE” OFF THE SLAUGHTER TRUCK?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

It is Now or Never for this poor boyAs usual, right in the middle of one rescue, comes another.

Matt is on scene and we have a chance to keep “HE NEEDS A MIRACLE” safe from any more of the horrors he has already faced. As you can see, he may end up being another humane euthanasia. Obviously we will give him every single chance to heal, and if he is just a bit odd shaped and in no pain, we will make sure he finds a safe place to land. But if the right thing for him is to end his pain, we will make sure he gets that respect. HE DESERVES TO HAVE NO MORE PAIN!

But HE CANNOT GO TO SLAUGHTER :(

In Addition, we have also been asked to help with an upcoming seizure in the next few days. So as usual, we have more lives to save and can only do so with your help.

Another fun fact is that due to the extreme shortage of hay due to the odd winter, in order to keep our hay safe, they will be delivering $7000 worth of hay tomorrow. We need to pay in full. Normally we would have it over 3 months, but due to the shortage and angry customers trying to buy the hay promised to Chilly Pepper, we have to get it now to secure it.

So now we need your help to get all of this done. Thankfully the 3 little ones at the Shipper’s are still spending time with their Mama’s. The more time they have the better, so we are praying we will not get the call that their Mama’s have shipped, for as long as possible. (NO, we do not have access to purchase their Mama’s at this point.)

So it is with great concern I send this out. We need help immediately to pull “He Needs A Miracle”. I am sure our Chilly Pepper Family would all agree that even if he doesn’t have a long life ahead of him, that he definitely should not be loaded on that trailer.

Thank you for any help you can provide for the hay, to save “HE NEEDS A MIRACLE” and to help us provide assistance with the upcoming seizure.

Thank you as always from ALL OF THE HORSES YOU ARE SAVING!!

FW: AN URGENT CALL FOR NEWBORN FOALS IN THE SHIPPER’S PEN, – A NEW “DON’T LET ME SHIP TO SLAUGHTER” DEADLINE, & MORE LIVES SAVED

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

YOU did it! YOU kept Smokey & the Bandit, and poor Buddy from being loaded on the “trailer of death”. It is with a broken heart I share the news, that for Bandit, his journey would end long before we wanted. We had to alleviate Bandit’s pain, as he suffered a horrific case of colic. I have no doubt his condition played a huge part in it all just being too much for him to fight. It was the right thing to do for him, and he is running free in Heaven.

As much as it hurts to lose him so much sooner than we wanted, y’all saved him from the horror of being sent to slaughter, and sometimes we are only here to provide temporary love and care.

So we decided to rescue another horse in his honor. Unfortunately, when we saw “LIL BANDITO”, we came across two other horses that were on the list to ship to their death, today!!!. So we had to step up, and pray our Chilly Pepper Family is on board with saving the two new ones also.

IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL OF THIS, I received another phone call. Chilly Pepper has 2 NEWBORN BABIES AND A 5 DAY OLD, waiting for us in WA.

As their tiny little lives unfold, little do they know that in a few days they will lose their Mama’s, and our Chilly Pepper Family will be the ONLY CHANCE they have at life. These babies are ONLY OFFERED to CHILLY PEPPER. No other rescues are allowed access to these babies.

If history repeats itself, I will be picking up more than 3 when I get the notice he is “shipping the horses”.

There are times when we have the opportunity to buy the mares with the babies, but that is not an option right now. So we keep quiet and save the lives that we can. There are so many tears when we pick up these tiny, frightened babies, but our job is to provide the best possible care we can, and as you all know, that take a serious toll on the budget.

So while Matt is down south picking up the new kids, and delivering some horses to their new homes, I will be prepping to head back up to WA for these teeny tiny babies. As always, WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN! We are so grateful for the folks who stay here and take care of everything while we are off picking up and delivering horses.

Most of the babies (from the last group) are still having issues, although the vet has finally figured out what might be causing it. But there are numerous new vet bills floating around, as well as the fact that between all of them, they are drinking the milk re-placer by the gallons.

On Monday, Matt will be taking Buddy to the local vet to see what the best options are for him. We have a safe place for him to stay if he needs time before traveling, and if he can come home right away we will do that. However, there is still a chance he may not have a good outcome, and then we would have to honor him and respect him enough to let him go. That decision would be based on the information from the Vet and what Buddy says. He will let us know if he is ready to fight, or is too tired and wants help to end his suffering. Obviously that is not what we want.

Like every rescue out there, we do as much of the medical care as we can, (under the guidance of our trusted vets), but sometimes you have to spend the money to get the exams, tests, xrays etc.

It is Go Time, and beyond! Thankfully, our Chilly Pepper Family has never let these horses down, and I know you won’t.

You are all a gift to these horses, and I am proud to know such amazing people. Thank you for your love, because YOU DECIDE how many horses we save! Matt and I are just “the Boots on the Ground”, but you all are the Heart and Soul. So let’s keep saving lives and get all of these kids to safety.

“Daisy Meadows”, “Give Me a Chance”, and “Lil Bandito”, have been marked safe and held for us on the belief that y’all will come through for them. Please keep them safe!

As always, the Chilly Pepper Family Rocks!

Thank you!!

All the ways you can help #SaveOnaqui

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

This is the most important week in our campaign to save the famed wild horses of Onaqui in Utah.

We’ve got a lot going on – and we need your support. Whether it’s on the ground in Utah or from afar, every action you can take this week will make a difference.

  • Friday is our rally at the BLM office in Salt Lake City, UT. Please join us as we protest the round-up of 80% of one of the most famous wild horse herds in America, and tell the BLM that their plan of action is unacceptable.
  • Our petition to save the Onaqui herd has gathered almost 97,000 signatures, and counting! Help us hit 100k! Please share with your networks, as we need as many signatures as possible! 
  • Also on Friday, we’ll be holding a Digital Sit-in to #SaveOnaqui. Support the movement by sharing on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the #SaveOnaqui hashtag. More on this later.
  • You can help show your support for the Onaqui wild horses by purchasing our Onaqui Apparel, proceeds of which will go directly to saving the Onaqui herd.

A majority of Americans oppose rounding up wild horses and using taxpayer money to put them in holding pens for life. And while the BLM has come after so many of America’s wild herds, the Onaqui wild horses hold a special place in our nation’s hearts.

As one of the most viewed wild horse herds, they not only offer a unique opportunity for people to witness the magic of horses roaming free in the wild, they also contribute to the local community by bringing in thousands of tourists every year.

Make a donation this week to support our efforts to Save Onaqui.

Thank you,

Suzanne

PS – Keep an eye out for an email this week with more information on our rally and digital sit-in to #SaveOnaqui happening Friday.

Tales of Onaqui

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Kimerlee Curyl is a renowned fine art photographer who has been working amongst the Onaqui wild horses since 2009. She is one of many artists who has come to know the herd very well, in a place that now feels like home.

We can’t let these beautiful horses, who have roamed Utah since the 1800s, lose their families and their homes in a BLM roundup.

Chip in now to help us rally the public and political support needed to fight the BLM’s cruel plan for the famed Onaqui horses.

Photo by Kimerlee Curyl

Kimerlee explains just how important these horses are:

“My first journey to the area was in 2009. While numerous visits have followed, I will never forget the magic and mystery of that initial trip. The Onaqui horses have called the historic Pony Express Trail in Utah home for generations. To remove them from this territory – one they once helped man traverse in the name of special interest – is a betrayal to our past, especially when access to cost-effective solutions have been offered and declined by the BLM. They are woven into the fabric of this landscape and deserve solutions to be expanded upon. They deserve to be here.”

Photographers like Kimerlee come from all over the world to visit and photograph these wild horses. But in a few short months, 80% of the herd could be gone forever.

Donate now, and help us work to save the Onaqui wild horses.

Thank you,

IN BETWEEN ORPHAN FOAL RESCUES – ANOTHER 911 CALL, A STARVING GELDING AND A PONY IN THE “SHIP PEN” NEED YOUR HELP TODAY!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

 

“BANDIT”, shown above, needs your help today!!Although we are on standby for more babies, I couldn’t ignore this beautiful boy. Seeing the despair in his eyes, and knowing that we can not only change that, but keep him off the slaughter truck sent me running to the computer. (Ok, so I can barely walk, but y’all know what i mean.) In all seriousness though, the clock is ticking…

I had to make an immediate decision, so once again I based it on faith. Faith that my Chilly Pepper Family will step up and make it possible to save not only him, but the 3 year old pony who was also scheduled to ship to slaughter. However, we can’t do it without y’all making it happen. Our budget is tapped out, and at this point, we simply don’t have funds to save these kids

Please help us save them. It is absolutely “baby time”, but every single life matters, and when God puts a certain one in front of us, I have to try and do everything I can to help.

So Please, help me, help him. Can you imagine how horrible just the trip to the slaughter plant would be in his condition? And then what would be waiting for him? It isn’t right, and since he and the little pony are “in front of us”, let’s save their lives too.

The babies are all hanging in there. Most of them have had scours and been sick at some point, and Goldilocks is still really struggling, as some of the others are. I have another vet bill for about $1500+, and between all the babies, there have been lots of vet visits. We are going through milk at a crazy pace, and so appreciate any and all help with these ongoing expenses.

As always, the Chilly Pepper Family Rocks!

Thank you!!

Update: Petition to Save Onaqui

1

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The BLM is full steam ahead with plans to round up and capture 80% of the famous Onaqui herd in Utah. But we can’t let up.

We still need 5,318 more signatures to reach our goal before April 5, when we are delivering our petition and holding a rally outside of the BLM’s Salt Lake City office. We need your help.

Add your name now, and take a stand to protect the Onaqui wild herd.

There are only 486 wild horses in the Onaqui herd. If the BLM gets their way, only 120 horses will remain on over 240,000 acres. 

There are humane ways to manage wild horse populations that the BLM is just not using. Instead, the agency wants to move forward with an inhumane roundup, using helicopters to chase the horses for miles. Once captured, the horses will be forced to spend the rest of their lives in holding pens and pastures, adding to the millions of dollars taxpayers are forced to spend on this ineffective and mismanaged federal program.

The Onaqui horses are irreplaceable – not just to America as a symbol of our freedom and our heritage, but to the local communities who benefit from the tourism dollars brought by wild horse admirers and photographers.

Please help us keep the Onaqui wild horses wild. Sign our petition to save this iconic herd from devastation.

Thank you,

Suzanne

More GOOD news!

Barney Update!

Remember Barney?  He came in back in January from a family distress situation. He was sickly when he arrived due to a respiratory issue and chronic diarrhea.
Barney was slowly transitioned from a hay diet (2 flakes am and pm) to a pellet diet.  Today, he’s eating about 56 pounds of senior pellets per day.
Today, he’s feeling much better,
especially after his spa day!
Barney is grateful for everyone’s support in making his way back to good health.
Barney’s story is made possible, in part,
by all who support our annual fundraiser…..
Will you join us to assure we can share more stories like Barney’s?

Join us! A rally to save the Onaqui wild horses

2

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

On Friday, April 5, we’re holding a rally in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah at the BLM State Office to save the Onaqui wild horses. We need a huge showing to make sure the BLM hears our voices loud and clear – and we hope you’ll join us in taking a stand against the BLM’s planned roundup that could wipe out 80% of the herd.

Click here to get more information about our rally on Facebook, and confirm your attendance.

BLM Utah State Office

440 W 200 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84101-1113

11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., April 5, 2019

This rally is our chance to speak up for the beloved Onaqui wild horses – one of the most famous herds in the West that draws thousands of eco-tourists to the area every year. With a great showing of support, we’ll be able to get the attention of the media and generate the national grassroots pressure on the BLM to spare this historic and unique mustang herd.

Help us generate a strong showing for the wild horses to #SaveOnaqui.

On April 5, we’ll be there… will you?

Thank you,

Suzanne

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

This week, we launched a campaign to save the Onaqui wild horses in Utah. To truly understand how special these horses are, you have to see them for yourself.

Watch this video about the Onaqui wild horse herd, and share it with your friends to raise awareness of their perilous situation.

 

The BLM plans to round up 80% of the herd and put them in holding pens for life – because they say the horses are overpopulating the area. But it’s not true and it doesn’t have to be like this. Cattle and sheep grazing consumes the majority of the resources on these public lands, and we have safe and humane solutions to control wild horse populations that the BLM has failed to implement adequately. Instead, millions of dollars in taxpayer money will go toward cruel roundups and confinement.

These horses deserve to be with their families and to roam free in the wild where they belong. This is an incredibly unique, tightly-knit society of horses. We can’t let the government destroy their herd.

These iconic wild horses need all of the teammates and fans they can get right now. Watch and share our video, and help us spread the word to save the Onaqui mustangs.

Thank you for helping save these national treasures. Let’s #SaveOnaqui.
