BABIES ARE COMING – 2 NEWBORNS WHO MAY NOT MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT – WILL YOU HELP US SAVE THEM? WE NEED HELP NOW

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

There are so many emergencies, but THIS IS BEYOND AN EMERGENCY. The babies have been dying left and right, and we need to know right now if folks are going to step up and help us save them.

It’s hard to know where to start. I was contacted and asked if Chilly Pepper will take on these fragile foals. However, due to the extremely dangerous conditions the folks are catching in, the price is $300. (We pay more than that for horses all the time), but there could be up to 16? or MORE???? coming in by tomorrow. So just for bail I would need $4800. Each baby will take a minimum of $300 in milk powder the first month, and that does not include anything. So milk powder alone will be close to $5,000. and that is just the start.

I HAD TO COMMIT to the newborns strictly on FAITH!! But after 11 of the first 12 we were on stand by for died, I cannot in good conscience say no. So I have committed to another 4 that will be here shortly. But if folks want us to have a chance to save the other 10 they have seen stranded in the snow, with their starving families and moms with no milk, we have to raise enough funds and quickly. IF they bring another 10 tomorrow, that is $3000 we have to have, or the babies won’t survive. Again, we pay more than that for a horse/baby all the time. It is just so scary when they are coming all at once.

So I need folks to step up now and let me know if we should try and save the 10 tomorrow, and I need desperately for folks to help us purchase,vet and take care of the ones we will have tonight.

It is so hard to have to keep asking for help, but we simply cannot do this without y’all.

Yesterday I was called to help a mare that was tangled in barbed wire. I went with another guy who had also been asked to help. He and his buddy went ahead of me, and I got all the medical supplies. The biggest heartbreak was that she was so starved it was worth fighting a barbed wire fence to try and find food that SIMPLY DOES NOT EXIST OUT THERE. Her injuries were not the worst of it. She lay for too long in the freezing snow and ice, and it was too much for her. So she had to be “dispatched”.

We have never ever had to deal with a situation like this. So I need to know, do I say YES for tomorrow? At this point I cannot risk anymore funds than I already have tonight. We are getting into hay money, but I can’t let two new babies freeze to death when I know that y’all are so amazing and would want to save them.

So Please Donate Generously. As always, I do this for free, but the babies need money for feed, care and vetting, not to mention getting them to safety.

I leave this in your hands, and am praying we can save the others that are stranded out there..

Cinderella, shown above, was rescued from a very likely snowy grave. She is here now and receiving the care she needs.

PLEASE HELP NOW!

Below you can clearly see how much snow is around. It is covering many of the barbed wire fences, and that shows not only how deep it is, but one of the reasons these rescues are so dangerous.

URGENT CALL TO ACTION – BABIES (TO WEANLINGS) ARE IN THE TRAP RIGHT NOW. ANOTHER DEADLINE – WE MISSED THE LAST ONE

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Wow, the phone calls just keep coming. We had some heartbreak last week as I was called for 5 weanlings. I knew we would have a deadline, but was given no idea how short it would be. Sadly, I didn’t have enough time to find a place where we could keep them or even begin to put out a fundraiser, before it was too late. I sent the text as soon as I found a place, but received one back saying “I already got rid of them”. I do not know for sure what that means, but we were pretty close to, if not the “last resort”. These “deadlines” are serious as far as being able to commit so we can have a chance to save them.

My understanding is that the babies have to be 400# to be loaded onto the truck. I believe most shippers do not want babies that small on board, due to injuries and babies being trampled or squished during transport, but I can honestly not say what happened to those 5 babies.

We are in Yakima working on Mama Mel’s Urgent Care Nursery, as it is imperative that it is ready for winter babies. My phone rang and my heart sank. It was one of the catchers, and he told me he has orphaned babies (ages unspecified) in his trap right now. I NEED TO KNOW WITHIN A FEW HOURS IF THERE IS A CHANCE WE CAN PULL THIS OFF. WE NEED FUNDS FOR PURCHASE, VETTING AND TRANSPORT. We do not have a number, it could be 5 or many more. I was told there are 100 horses where they are trapping and they thought they might get a third. They could get more or less and so there is no way to know how many babies we could end up with. If there are a lot, how do you decide who lives and dies? That is why we need to make sure we have the funds ready to go when it is time.

Thankfully some of the folks we work with on a regular basis have been building their out reach, so these kids will not have to come back to Chilly Pepper.

PLEASE let’s NOT miss another deadline. I had no idea the time was so short when we got the last call. But I do know I have to have the answer by tomorrow so we can say yes and save these babies.

I know it is a regular thing for us to ask for urgent help. We certainly did not choose to be on the front lines. However, God has put us here for a reason and y’all are part of this amazing journey. The number of lives YOU have made it possible to save is absolutely astonishing. But as most of you know, the horses are in crisis, so instead of having the winter off to “re-group” like we are supposed to (haha), the emergencies just keep coming.

So I hope y’all understand that we have to ask, because without funding these babies could die. We are still trying to raise enough funds to pick up the miniatures and make sure they are all properly vetted with Health certs etc. Vetting is scheduled for the 22nd if we have the funds.

On a good note, we are making great progress on the “Nursery”, considering how many horses we are involved in rescuing at this time.

AGAIN, THANK YOU AS ALWAYS for the love and support. As soon as we get a spare minute I will be back on our “thank you’s”.

6 MORE FOALS, AND WE NEED TO SET UP THE NURSERY IMMEDIATELY! PLEASE HELP NOW SO WE CAN SAVE THEM!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

More babies are coming in. IN ADDITION to the 4 that we just saved, there are SIX MORE, including Lil Cash (shown above) who is only a month or two old. Due to the loss of life last winter, many of the mares are foaling out of the normal foal season. So we will need LOTS of Foal Lac and milk pellets etc.

The new nursery is NOT set up, and there are only a few panels and no shelteras the other rescue took everything when they shut down the “orphanage”. The normal trapping season is beyond over, but much like last year they just continue to round up these beautiful souls, non-stop. The new nursery was not supposed to be open, but babies do not come at our convenience, and this is an emergency situation. (There are times when I wish we were not always on the front line having to deal with immediate life saving issues. Thankfully y’all are amazing!)

Right now the winds are blowing 40 miles an hour and we need to get up there, save the rest of the babies and start setting up the nursery NOW!! These babies have been through more horror than any horse should see in it’s entire life, and some of them are only a month or two old. We had hoped to be able to slowly raise funds and get it set up before trapping started again next spring. However, as always, that is obviously not happening.

This is so overwhelming. It sounds whiny, but I just had surgery 2 weeks ago and Matt is not even home yet with the 9 y’all just saved. So we are a tiny bit exhausted but once again, I need to ask folks to step up! (ok – crying over.)

I have been told “you can just say no”. Well, I cannot look at a baby who is not only innocent, but terrified, hungry and most often in very poor shape and say let it die because it is inconvenient , especially knowing that their moms are literally on the truck on the way to a horrific and painful death.

CAN YOU SAY NO to a tiny innocent orphan? I hope not. We can purchase, insulate and prepare a smaller nursery building similar to the ones we use in NV for our nursery and critical care units for about $3000. That would enable us to set it up exactly how it should be. The weather is changing fast and it is critical that we have the proper facilities so we can provide the care they truly deserve.

I couldn’t believe it when I got called for 2 more today. We have had the vet out twice and it was roughly $445 BOTH TIMES. Now we have to call her to come out again, and it will be about $350 for the 2 new kids. But we have to do things the right way, so I am hoping and praying we can raise enough funds to pay the vet for the last 2 times, the upcoming visit and be able to get a shelter up in the next week. (So for these 10 foals, the vet bill is roughly $1200 – $1300, and this does NOT include the cost of saving them, bringing them home or taking care of them.)

SO WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP FROM THE FRONT LINES ONCE AGAIN.You are the difference for these innocent souls, and we thank each and every one of you who donate, send prayers, share the information and are part of our Chilly Pepper Family. Once again we will do the work if we have the funding.

HORSES NEED YOU NOW !!!! ANOTHER 48 Hour DEADLINE was SERVED moments ago….. 47 hours & 59 minutes……. COUNTDOWN TO DEATH…. URGENT HELP NEEDED

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ONCE AGAIN, we have been given another 48 hour deadline…… The original 8 were saved, and another rescue in WA thought that the 6 who were shipping on Friday had all been adopted. Unfortunately, folks did not come through and there are still 4 at risk to ship in 48 hours. There are also an additional bunch waiting to be loaded in 48 hours.

YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT SAVED 24 LIVES !!!! You paid their bail and allowed us to do what was needed to save their lives. They included 15 foals, 3 mares with their 3 foals, 3 heavily pregnant mares and a badly injured young mare. (Sadly two little ones didn’t make it. One died in WA due to severe injuries and being septic when she came in. The other one died from starvation and dehydration at the vet’s office. We did everything possible to give him every chance. I sat with him in my lap as we helped him pass quietly from this world. He, like Luckee, tried ever so hard to fight to stay with us. He was constantly in my lap or laying with me, and PTL we had a special donor who helped with his vet bills so your funds could save other lives.

Unfortunately I received ANOTHER CALL YESTERDAY – There are 4 babies whose mom’s are shipping on Sunday, and I was told to expect more. We are praying that the two mares who are ready to give birth do so before they are loaded. We have no option to save those two mares, but are praying they have those babies prior to being loaded on the truck. It is a horrific thought either way, but this is our reality and it is brutal. Thankfully we can save many lives with your help, and every single life we save is extremely important to that horse.

We picked up the 4 starving horses, only to have even more heartbreak. The older one who was in the absolute worst shape had to be euthanized yesterday. He went into congestive heart failure and was in agony. So once again we had to do the right thing and clean up someone else’s brutal mess. I simply have nothing left when it comes to my heart. Matt was pretty much ready to just shut this down. We have seen so much death and heartbreak these last few months, and every single one happened because we weren’t able to get to them in time.

We need urgent help immediately to save as many as we can to keep them off the truck. The NEW 48 hour deadline is ticking away as I write this. I realize that we are always having deadlines and emergenciesBut that is what the “front line” is. YOU make the difference for these lives, and I am ever so grateful. Please show your love once again.

We so appreciate y’all making it possible to keep them from suffering a horrific death by slaughter.

▪ If you see horses starving, don’t wait. Contact help immediately and feed them in the meantime. It is devastating and heartbreaking to come in too late to help.
