Valentine

This little pistol was only about five days old when she came to AAE.
Mom didn’t come down for winter with the rest of the herd, but March 1st, 2018,
she had a reason.   Mom (Martina) delivered this beautiful little girl, and
she needed better nourishment to keep them both alive.  They showed up at the barn at DreamCatchers, and we got a call.  Their winters are harsh up there, and survival can be difficult for the little ones.  Martina and Valentine were several mare/foal pairs that came in last year.  This year was Valentine’s year!
 
Her name came from the little heart on her muzzle.  She was such a brave lil’ squirt
She was tiny but mighty, and she let you know it!
Valentine had a large umbilical hernia, so large, some mistook her for a gelding.
It sure made it easy to spot her in the herd.
Once she was weaned, she was set up for surgery to repair the hernia.  It was a big one..
Poor little miss energy hated her recovery, 60 days on stall rest.
She healed fine, and it wasn’t long before she blossomed into this big, beautiful girl.
(For any of you that remember Dayton, she looks like she could be his lil’ sister).
And look at her now….she moved to her new home earlier this year!!
We always look forward to updates from our adopters.
If you’ve adopted an AAE horse and we haven’t been in touch lately,
please drop us a line and let us know how things are going.
We love to share your updates!

Sawyer & Jasper

Sawyer and Jasper came to AAE in June when their owner fell on hard times, and
he had no money left to feed his horses.
 
Sawyer was a filly coming three in November, and Jasper a colt coming three in October.  It seemed they should be straight forward intake to adoption.  Neither had had great care, but they weren’t was in such poor condition as many we see.  What was in store?  The basics, of course!  Nutrition, dentals, hoof care, vaccines, deworming, microchips, and DNA, as well as removal of Jasper’s crown jewels.
 
Stand by.  No jewels!  What?  I thought you said he needed to be gelded?  He does?  Are you sure?  Yes.
Does bilateral cryptorchid sound fun?  No, sounds expensive, and I hear recovery time.
We just moved to “not so straight-forward”.
Fortunately, because of your support this time last year, we had funding in place to resolve “the issues”, and Jasper soon became a gelding.  I’d like to say his recovery was straight forward, but somewhere, somehow, Jasper went head to head with something (in his own, small paddock, mind you).
Meanwhile, Sawyer was feeling much better after her pedicure and dental care.
 
Sawyer was turning into the fancy little pony she is!
Strut her stuff she did!
 
It wasn’t long, and this sweet lil’ filly was heading out the gate to her forever home!!
Back at the barn, Jasper’s eye healed, but not before
a visit by Dr. Stolba, daily treatment by our volunteers, and antibiotics.  Straight forward, not.
Did we mention he also scuffled with a panel or another horse, and we had to nurse a swollen leg, too.
Finally, handsome boy was back to work and lookin’ good.  He still has lots of maturing to do,
but he got a little test drive just to show what an easy-going, sweet, and confident guy he was growing into.
  
It didn’t take long, and Jasper found his girl!
We can’t wait to hear updates and stories about the memories these two make!!
We always look forward to updates from our adopters.
If you’ve adopted an AAE horse and we haven’t been in touch lately,
please drop us a line and let us know how things are going.

PATSY, KITTY, and DIXIE

Patsy, Kitty, and Dixie came to AAE from DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary in February of 2018 after spending time as a project horse for students at the
 

These three diamonds in the rough were part of a group of five younger mares.

As we always do, we updated vaccines, dental and hoof care.  We also had her microchipped.
  
In time, they lost their winter woollies, and began to shine.
  
They went to work.  It’s been a long haul earning their trust and developing confidence.
  
They were so ready for their own persons.  They needed consistency and someone to call their own, and that’s exactly what they found.  All three of these special girls have their own families now!
  
Gotta love happy endings and new beginnings!

TEXAS, BIG & RICH

Texas, Big & Rich came to AAE in January 2019 after abandonment on a large (400-acre) property in Placer County eight years ago.  Sadly, these guys have a long history of failures after once roaming free.
Our understanding these mustangs came to a rescue in California in 2009 after removal from a neglect situation at another rescue in Nebraska.  These are three-strike mustangs; they had three failed adoption attempts while at BLM.  Long story short, in 2011, they were part of a group of 10 placed on a beautiful 400-acre foster property. The foster was asked to remove the horses after failing to provide the promised care.  When they returned to remove the group of 10, they were unable to load these three and left them behind, never to return for them.  Texas, Big & Rich lived on the foster property for years, until it was recently sold.  Sadly, these boys lost eight years of prime time, and according to their brands, they are all 16 years old.  Little is known about prior handling/training, but these guys were feral; none of the three were halterable at the time we picked them up.

Fortunately, picking up was straight forward.  The fosters had set-up a round pen, and fed the horses in the roundpen to get them used to coming in.  We setup a long loading chute from the roundpen to the trailer.  The pick up was anything but difficult; actually, the hardest part was managing the panels with only one truck/trailer.

  
The loading was the easy part….literally seconds from the time the roundpen was opened until the horses were in the trailer.  Think about the intake process and the hidden costs that most people don’t consider when thinking about the costs associated with rescuing horses: one trip to visit/evaluate the horses (three hours volunteer time), one trip to deliver and setup the panels (three hours onsite plus time hitching up, loading panels, fueling vehicle, ranch help unloading and setting up), one trip to load/pick-up the horses (three hours plus time for hitch-up, ranch help, an hour waiting on roadside for road service while truck was stuck in 4WD, return/unload, intake), and another trip to pickup the panels (three hours times two plus unloading).  Add the gas and wear and tear on the truck and trailer.   This was only the beginning of the journey with three feral mustangs that have already had failed placements a multitude of times.  Consider prepping for hoof, dental, and vet care after eight years of none.  Volunteer hours upon hours.

Fortunately, these boys were in relatively good health, except for Tex, who had foundered.  There was much work yet to do!

  
Tex responded well to re-learning about human touch and haltering, and we were able to get radiographs and a farrier on his hooves.  Thankfully, after several rounds of trimming, shoes, and ongoing hoof care, he’s done very well.
 
Tex and Rich were quite bonded.  Well, Rich was extremely timid, fearful, and reactive.  He found his confidence in Tex.  Tex, on the other hand, had a sweet blend of curious with a bit o’ confidence.  Where you found one, you found the other.  It was hard on Rich when Tex was away for farrier care or other work.  Unlike most mustangs, Rich was irrationally reactive, explosive, over the top.  With the slightest of pressure, he would lose his mind.  How I wish we knew what this lil’ guy had experienced; well, maybe not :(  Rich did much better when he and Tex joined the herd in our “pasture” (10-acre dry lot).  He interacted with the other horses and found solace with a couple of the girls.  Sadly, his separation anxiety was so extreme, he tried to challenged a farm gate during feeding time to get to one of his girls, and he injured himself.  Fortunately, we had made some progress with haltering, we were able to halter and sedate him for veterinary treatment (thanks to the team at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center), and his wounds healed with barely a scar.
  
It was very apparent the human world was simply way too much for Rich.  His fear and reactivity far outweighed a safe existence for him and his human friends at AAE.  We were very fortunate to find a sanctuary home for Rich and his BFF, Tex.
That leaves Big.  While Tex and Rich were winding down their stay at AAE, Big graduated and took a little vacay to enhance his learning as a project horse for a student at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center .  Big was a favorite.  (Consider the transport time and costs, as well as the student and instructor time, care costs, plus).
  
  
  
Big is a very willing and has a very kind soul.  That being said, he is reactive and a long way to go in becoming a confident, trusting partner, but charming he is!
Big needs his own person that is very experienced with mustangs.  He gives nicely to pressure, and he accepts touching around his neck, chest and withers more readily than his face, but he will tolerate facial and forehead rubs.  At AAE, his human time is divided among the many horses here.  He really needs his very own dedicated person to give him daily, consistent handling to continue his progress.  Big has an adorable “dork” factor with his charming eyes, head tilts, and generally goofy expressions.  You can’t help but fall in love with this guy.  At 16, he’s probably best suited as a fun companion for lots of liberty work.  He’s not going to be “easy” to develop into a trustworthy riding partner, but never say never.  The right person is just what he needs.  Someone calm, quiet, and confident, that knows how to develop trust and confidence and continue progress.

Big is available for adoption.  He is current with hoof and dental care, as well as vaccines and deworming.  He has a microchip in place.  He is NOT suitable for a beginner or anyone without significant experience gentling mustangs.

As you can see, the time, effort, and dedication it takes to rescue is much more than a quick pick up and rehome.  It takes hours upon hours of volunteer time and a lot of equipment and financial resources to accomplish just one rescue like Texas, Big and Rich.  Your support makes it possible for horses like these three to have another chance for a happy, healthy life.  Thank you!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

On this #GivingTuesday we are continuing our countdown to 2020 with another story.

FINNEGAN

Many of you recognize Finnegan, an AAE Resident and Volunteer favorite!
Here’s a Finn update; gotta love Finn!
Some of you remember when…..
   
He was such a cute lil’ peanut, and he weaseled his way into everyone’s heart!
It was so bittersweet when Finn went out on adoption as a yearling, but
similarly bittersweet when he returned to AAE about six months later. Being the fave that he was, no one was too disappointed.
Finn’s growing into such an incredibly handsome guy, and
he’s continuing his education, too.
 
It wasn’t long after he returned that Finn earned himself a spot
as a resident program horse at AAE.  He’s brought fun and laughter to everyone.
His entertainment factor (and patriotism) is second to none.
  
However, the entertainment value comes at a cost.  Finn epitomizes the statement that horses will be horses.  Once a horse is rehabilitated with AAE the care doesn’t stop there. Horse like Finn find trouble….lameness, rattlesnakes, lacerations, colic, you name it!
     
He loves to give us a scare, and he must be one of Dr. Stolba’s favorite patients because she comes to see him more often than any of the others.
Shhh….we won’t tell Finn she comes because we call her.
He doesn’t understand why not everyone can watch over him like his mom did,
even though he watched over her, too.
That’s why he needs all of us to watch over him. Finn is no exception to the rule: Horses are incredibly sensitive, yet ever so resilient.
Have you heard about his latest trouble (this past Friday)?
…he found a nail, and not just any nail, but a 3-1/2″ nail while wondering the 10 acre pasture!
Everyone always says, “When Finn does it, he does it big”.
   
The Gods were watching over this goofy guy.  The radiograph below shows that the nail did not impact the tendon sheath; the dye does not penetrate beyond where the tip of the nail was.  Life threatening it was.  Though he is not out of the woods (risk of infection) yet, there was no major damage.
     
  Finn, we love you, but no more heart attacks, please.
Just charm us like you always do!
Finn says Thank You for caring about him and the rest of his herd!
BELIEVE, your support makes a difference.
DONATE and you can make more stories come true!
If you’d rather mail a donation, please make checks payable to

SCOTTY , RUSTIC, and ALWAYS…and CLANCY, too

The fab three seniors, Scotty, Rustic, and Always came in to AAE in January 2019 as their retired owners were experiencing significant health issues making it difficult to provide their daily care.  They were also in the process of downsizing, selling their ranch property, and relocating their home out of state.
  The trio was in good health, and they had been well cared for, but like so many senior horses, they had been difficult to rehome.  To no avail, their prior owners had tried for quite some time to find a suitable boarding facility near their out of state home or a home locally.
  
Not long after they arrived, we did the intake dance, having their care updated:  hoof care, dentals, vaccines, deworming, and microchips. All three had old horse teeth, and they were all on pellets only senior diets.  The two ol’ dudes had a bit of “the look”, so Dr. Stolba – Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center also collected blood samples to test them for Cushing’s Disease.  Their bloodwork indicated they were both “in the zone’ (borderline), so they were started on low doses of daily medication (pergolide).
 
Upon arrival, Scotty was Rustic and Always were quarantined together; however, Scotty was quickly separated to improve his dining situation.  Rustic was bonded to Always; I say “to” and not “with”. Rustic found confidence through Always and rarely left her side. Though Always didn’t mind Rustic’s affection, his attachment became a detriment to her.  She’s such a lovely mare, and he wouldn’t stand for her to be anywhere but next to him. She loved attention and grooming, and she even seemed to enjoy getting back into saddle work. She thrived without him and had so much to offer. The longer they were here, the more dependent Rustic grew on Always. Scotty’s an independent soul, and unlike many seniors, he was quite adaptable to most anything.
  
Scotty is a 33 y/o Morgan gelding.  He is just a good ol’ guy! Scotty was used for both English and Western riding and on trails for many, many years.  He enjoys grooming and attention and has been willing to do whatever’s asked. Though he’s looking great for his age, he’s a bit arthritic, so he was also started on a daily feel good med (aka Equioxx) to help make each day a little easier. Due to hind end weakness, Scotty had not been ridden for quite some time.  Scotty is simply an uncomplicated guy…easy-going, laid back, and doesn’t demand a lot.
Rustic a 26 y/o Morgan.  He, too, is a sweet ol’ guy, too, but he has baggage, serious baggage! Rustic experienced a nail injury to his right hind hoof as a two year old.  A nail penetrated his navicular bursa, and he had an extended recovery period. As a result, the docs said there was no riding in his future. Worry not, he was trained as a driving horse, and did a lot of driving over the years, but e hadn’t been driven for some time. Rustic is a “Nervous Nellie” kinda guy.  He lacks confidence and bonds strongly to his paddock-mate or neighbors. At first he took a very slow, patient approach to halter, and he was anxious if separated from Always.
 Always is an early 20s Oldenberg mare.  Always was originally trained as a hunter/jumper, then later used for both English and Western riding, and eventually on trails.  Though she is a branded Oldenberg, her registration was lost. Her registry information was found online. Always is a very nice gal, very easy-going and mild mannered.  She enjoys grooming and attention, and she’s “always” willing to do what’s asked. Always was restarted with light saddle work, and after several years off, she was a delight to ride. She appeared to have had a good education under saddle, and it appeared with some conditioning, she could possibly work as a companion with occasional light riding.
It wasn’t long, and this sweet mare found her family.  She was headed to a big pasture to befriend another gelding to be his companion and an occasional light riding horse.
In comes Clancey!  Clancey came to AAE from a foster situation a few months after the fab three arrived.  She had belonged to a young woman that was heading off to college, and she was running out of time to find a home for her long time and senior companion.  Clancey had done it all, and the years of work had taken a toll on her ol’ bod. Her foster succumbed to the young gals plea for help after they visited to meet her as a potential riding horse.  They left when they didn’t see a fit, but impulsively took her in after pleas for help from her young owner. However, their other two horses were less than welcoming to the poor ol’ gal. It wasn’t long before they realized it would not work out and asked for help.  We accepted Clancey, but she remained with them in foster until we could find an adopter or space opened up.
 Sadly, no good situations presented for her, and she finally moved over to AAE.  Scotty was eventually moved to a paddock beside this lonely gal (Clancey), and they fell for each other!  It wasn’t long until Clancey and Scotty were neighbors that grew very fold of each other.  They were placed in long term foster when one of our volunteer families opened their hearts to this old couple so they could live out their lives together. Thank you, Jill and Bret for making room in your hearts, home, and barn for these two oldies!
That brings us back to Rustic.  As Rustic and Always became more of a challenge, Rustic’s behavior regressed. Rustic’s separation anxiety was extreme.  Ultimately, Rustic and Always were separated for Always’ benefit; she thrived, and Rustic moved on to attach to his next neighbor (yes, he quickly forgot about Always and began obsessing over another gelding).  Rustic was moved to a bachelor pad in the barn where he got exposure to daily volunteer activity and ultimately, their affection.  The aloof Rustic wants to be loved, but he resents a halter.  He is very selective about who touches him and when. He plays hard to get, and he IS often hard to get, unless he’s in a relatively small space.  Rustic is sensitive, and when approached slowly and calmly (by some), he accepts and enjoys h     cvxn (on his terms).  He can be a nice guy, but needs an experienced and calm/low energy person.
Rustic desperately needs a special kind of home where he can live out his remaining years.  Once haltered, he is easy going, enjoys grooming and walks.  He wants to bond with certain people.  He is good with front hooves and with farrier on front hooves, but right hind (past injury) was an issue with first trim. Rustic kicked out at farrier; however, prior owner indicated he was fine once hoof is in hand. That wasn’t the case that day.  We’ve since used a sedative gel to trim him to assure safety of our farrier.

Can you give this guy a final landing place?

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Never has it felt more true.  The horses come to AAE for a reason, because of your support, it’s possible.
THANK YOU for all of the GREAT THINGS you do to make it possible to help so many horses!

CONWAY, one we were able to help

Conway came to AAE with six of his other equine friends after the passing of his elderly owner.  Due to his owner’s health conditions and physical limitations, this herd had not received adequate care for quite some time.  The County animal care agency had been involved for quite some time.  Though we offered assistance over a year ago; owner declined, looking only for financial support.
Conway had foundered; he had not received hoof or dental care for quite a while.
His hooves were painful, and he was very depressed.
Conway on day of pick-up in July 2019
Conway was a bit nervous, lacking confidence and appreciation for humans.  He was not readily halterable without patience and try.
Conway was evasive, sensitive, and really wanted to be alone.  He was not a fan of hoof handling, either, understandably so.
Shortly after arrival, radiographs were taken of Conway’s hooves, and he got much needed hoof and dental care.

  

Conway needed sedation for hoof care initially.  After two- to four-week trim cycles, continued hoof care and much love and attention, this lil’ guy has come around.  He’s beginning to seek attention, and he stands quietly for the farrier.  Conway has some sensitivity with the farrier when rasping his dorsal wall, likely due to residual sensitivity, but he seems to improve with each trim cycle.  Conway is living in a small mini horse/donkey herd environment, and his personality is slowly surfacing.

Recent photo of Conway shortly before moving on to his forever home.

Thank you to Conway’s veterinarian, Diana Stolba, DVM, Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center,
and farrier, Chris Culcasi!

HEADING BACK TO WA – MORE BABIES AT THE FEED LOT – CHILLY PEPPER NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER MIRACLE BABY – MEET LITTLE MAX, AND HIS MAMA WHO REJECTED HIM.

They just keep coming. All the horses in the last batch have been savedLuckily another rescue stepped up and helped fund raise and there is only one left at this time. We are slated to bring him home if he does not get adopted in the next few hours. Sadly, between his fees and Coggins etc., we will need another $750 just to save him, and that does not include the additional babies..

It cost $6027 ($1400 to save the horses and the rest for Coggins and Health Certs and to get the emergency vet care for our gentle giant and the tiny Max. Big Matt had a bad case of colic, and Little Matt was on his way to a certain death. In addition, one of the horses I am bringing home on this next trip needed emergency vet care yesterday for an infected hoof. So that pretty much wiped out the coffers. We try to do as much of the vetting as we can, but sometimes you have to bite the bullet and save the lives God puts in front of youSo we need more help now! I have to get to WA, so we can save the 4 babies waiting at the feed lot. Then those horses have to get vetted and we have to get back home.

THE MIRACLE OF MAX-AMILLION

I received the call for MAX, hours after he was born. His Mama absolutely refused to have anything to do with him and shoved him into a water tank. So this newborn (probably a preemie) ended up with no care, a Mama bent on hurting him, and wet and frozen cold out in the freezing winds. It was a horrific way for a tiny baby to begin life.

I was told that he was given colostrum. He couldn’t really swallow, and had no suckling reflex whatsoever. It took forever to get even tiny amounts of milk down him. The next morning we had the vet check him. Everything seemed fine.

That afternoon little Max was unconscious.. We gave him glucose and Mel worked on waking him up. When he came back to, he sat up and drank his milk like nothing had happened. I was pretty sure we had turned a corner, but that little voice said take him to WSU – the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. It was 4 hours away and I was exhausted and dreading the drive, but I knew God was telling us to go. THANKFULLY WE DID! Max-amillion had zero Passive Transfer, which means he had no colostrum. Not enough to even register. He has pneumonia, fluid around his lungs from the pneumonia, and he would have died for sure.

Between the vet bills for Big Matt and Little Max-amillion, and the funds spent purchasing the rescued horses, we simply need to recharge our funds. We need to get the rest of the kids and bring them home. I was told several are still needing milk, although I have yet to see them,

THANK YOU to everyone who made all this possible. Please let’s finish this long rescue and get these babies to safety.

MAX says, THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY LIFE AND MY MAMA TOO, even if she doesn’t want me.

ANOTHER 911 – A NEW RESCUE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS ONE! SO FAR 8 & MAYBE MORE??? CLOCK IS TICKING AS ALWAYS.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER 911 CALL! They just do not stop in our world.

2 More wild babies at the shipper’s so far, (and most likely more to come!) Folks have seen multiple “traps” that are currently full of wild horses, right now, today!

We received an urgent call for a group of kids that are shipping in a few days? 6 Domestics, 3 more older, “gentle giants”, who were purportedly driving horses, and 3 older saddle horses. All of these horses worked their lives away, and now that they are no longer needed, they have been thrown in the trash.

Let’s show them that timing aside, no matter what time of year, their lives DO matter! Rescue is never convenient, and this is the worst time of year to be taking on more horses. However, their lives ALWAYS matter, even if it is freezing outside and it takes tremendous amounts of work to care for them.

We will save as many as we can get funding for. But this means being responsible and knowing we have enough money to not only “buy them”, but to vet them, transport them and feed and care for them properly through the winter months, or until we can get them adopted.

So it will be up to y’all, as always. YOU decide how many more we can save. Y’all are amazing, but we simply cannot do this without you. We are exhausted, but we had to put it out there and give these guys a chance.

Big Matt was colicking the 2nd night we got him. He is a hot mess, and needs lots of prayers. His heart rate was double what it should have been and the vet was very concerned. Sadly, he is a very long way from being “out of the woods’. We are hoping and praying his new drug protocol will provide comfort and not too many side effects.

We have already spent a fortune on him, but he needs as much help as we can give him. At this time, he cannot seem to lie down. A horse HAS to be able to lie down, or it will be a death sentence. He is exhausted and when he tried to lay down, he got half way down, and it was too hard for him. He started moaning, and then finally stood back up. Vet has him starting on some good meds, so we will see if we can make him comfortable and give him a good quality of life.

Can you imagine weighing 1900 pounds, your feet and legs hurting, and not being able to lie down to rest and get off of them? We HAVE TO MAKE SURE his quality of life is one that he deserves! Horses also need to sleep. :(

We will be heading home with this current group of kids tomorrow. How many we will be able to pick up when we come back depends on you. Please help us save and take care of as many as possible.

We are also praying other folks will step up and help these horses, but for now, all we can do is try and save as many as we can.

Thank you as always for your miracles and your prayers!

911 CALL – ANOTHER DEADLINE – SHIPPER CALLED – 3 +? FOR US, CLOCK IS TICKING – THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another 911 call today. Shipper in WA has at least 3 for us. I need to let him know asap if we can take them. TWO of them are easily big enough to ship, but we were offered the chance to save them. However, as always, there is a looming deadline.

We are so grateful to y’all for helping us save the 71 babies in August and September, but these lives are just as important. We have been absolutely swamped caring for the nearly 90 horses we had at Chilly Pepper, but thankfully, our angels stepped up to help us find placement for many of the babies. We are now close to 30 horses, but that is still a very large number going into winter. We need to stock up on groceries and meds.

With temperatures sinking in to the low 20’s in the next week, we are fighting the cold weather, “water blues”. (Low 20’s means freezing water tanks, frozen hoses, broken water lines etc. So we need to buy new tank heaters and get ready for the cold immediately. It’s only September, ugh.)

We are working on more shelter so all these kids will be comfortable and warm. In the past, this much shelter was not needed, as our numbers were normally lower.

However, as we are sitting on close to 30 horses and the weather is already going to be brutal, we need to get the extra shelters set up. Especially as we are (hopefully) heading out to get more.

The (4 legged) kids are also eating us out of house and home. We need to order more hay, grain, milk pellets etc. and are now heading to WA, IF we can save these babies. This will mean more vetting etc. (It was over $500 for the last 5). As our coffers were nearly wiped out with the 71 needing so much special feed, milk pellets, vetting etc., we need to get back on track.

Please help us save these lives and prepare for the upcoming winter. We need your help and together, as always, we can “git ‘er done” and keep saving lives.

Thank you from all the horse kids and the rest of the critters. Your donation makes a difference. Every single penny adds up, and it is clear that when we all come together, we CAN make a difference. THANK YOU!!

Thank you all for your continued support!

New horses and the story of an intake:  Sawyer and Jasper

Sawyer and Jasper recently came to AAE when their owner fell on very hard times.  They are super sweet, pony-sized kids coming three this Fall.

Sawyer

Sawyer’s was born November 2016, and her dad was a Spanish QH and mom QH/Shetland.  At intake, Sawyer weighed in at about 825 pounds and measured about 13.1 hh.  Sawyer is a fancy lil’ gal that came in with a bit of a spoiled/pushy ‘tude.
Sawyer is learning her manners, as hard as it may be because she really loves her human friends.  Sawyer is easy to bring in from pasture, and she’s lower gal on the totem pole in the herd.  She is enjoys grooming and lots of attention.  She has been trimmed once and is learning to stand patiently and give her hooves freely.  Sawyer is improving her ground skills, working in the round pen and will soon be learning to ground drive with a surcingle.
She’s taking it all in stride.  This little character will make a fun project for an experienced person.  Sawyer is available for adoption and will be ready to go to her new home after her dental appointment next week.  She is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof care.  She has a microchip in place, and her DNA results are in ( 1st Galiceno, 2nd Quarter Horse, 3rd Belgian Draft).
If you are interested in adopting Sawyer, please visit her page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.

Jasper

Jasper was born October 2016, and his dad was a Spanish QH and mom a registered Paint.  At intake, he weighed in at only 700 pounds and measured 14.0 hh.  Jasper is a laid back kinda guy that came in a little bit shy.  He was thin, and his hooves were long and flared.  He had not been gelded, so we made immediate plans to take resolve that “issue”.
Jasper was warming up quickly with only a minor setback when his personal space was invaded, and we learned he was hiding both of his gems.  Wait, it wasn’t Jasper that had the setback, it was AAE when we learned he was a bilateral cryptorchid.  Neither of his testicles had descended.  To be sure he actually had testicles and wasn’t magically gelded by some equine angel in the night, we confirmed with a blood test.  “He does have testicles”, just what we really didn’t want to hear.  Needless to say, Jasper made his way to Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center for brain surgery, I mean castration.  Thankfully, surgery went well, and Jasper recovered nicely.
Jasper has come around to enjoy humans with little concern.  He still needs to build a bit of confidence, but all in all, he’s a sweetheart of a guy.  He’s learning his manners, and he’s learning patience, relatively well.  Jasper, the lil stud colt that he was, had some inherently strong, manly beliefs.  He’s slowly losing his enthusiasm around other horses, and he’s learning to be more respectful in the presence of others.  He has not made a transition to pasture yet, because he still has some belief that he’s “the man”, a stud, and he really likes the girls.  When recently introduced to pasture, he thought he’d show Blue up a bit.  Oops, not how we thought that introduction would go.  For now, he’ll spend more time appreciating the herd and pasture from the other side of the fence.  In the meantime, Jasper is enjoying grooming and attention.  He has been trimmed twice and is still learning to stand patiently and give his hooves freely; however, there was big improvement with the second trim.
Now that Jasper has recovered from surgery, he has been improving his ground skills, working in the round pen, and he will soon be learning to ground drive with a surcingle and wear a saddle.  He has some growing to do.  He’s filling out nicely, but seems delayed a bit due to malnourishment early on.  Like Sawyer, he’s taken it all in stride.  Jasper will also make a fun project for an experienced person.  Jasper is available for adoption and will be ready to go to his new home after his dental appointment next week.  He is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof care.  He has a microchip in place, and his DNA results are in ( 1st Quarter Horse, 2nd Turkoman, 3rd Holsteiner).

If you are interested in adopting Jasper, please visit his page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.

The Story of an Intake:

While Sawyer’s intake was unusually straightforward, she’s waiting for her person to find her.  She’s getting an education and hoping the next inquiry is for her.  Might you be hers?
If you are interested in adopting Sawyer, please visit her page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.
Jasper is a great example of the many needs and challenges encountered with each intake.
He is also available for adoption and waiting to find his person.   If you are interested in adopting Jasper, please visit his page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.
Stay tuned for the rest of the story, The Story of an Intake.

911 FOR HORRIBLY INJURY – MORE BABIES COMING, AND WE NEED HELP RIGHT NOW! WE CAN’T LET THEM SHIP :(

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

I am literally sick to my stomach and crying as I write this. The beautiful bay has a so called, “blown out knee”. We need to commit to save her right now. She is heading to the slaughter truck, if we don’t step up. Look at that leg, it has to be excruciating! That is how she stands (see middle pix).

I have to say I am saying YES, praying and believing that y’all would not let her down. Watching her move is beyond excruciating, and I cannot believe any human could leave a horse like that.

So she was headed to the slaughter truck, her knee basically broken, and in absolute agony. I am so angry and so sick. I just cried and cried when I saw her trying to walk. We need to call the emergency vet out asap, and I also told my person to GO AHEAD!. I am running on absolute faith, but the person who left this horse like this should be punished beyond belief.

On top of that we have her buddy, a 30 year old gelding who is slowly starving as his teeth are in beyond deplorable shape. He has horrible open sores in his mouth from his teeth poking into his gums, and is blind to boot. These horses have been through more pain than any horse should ever suffer. We were told the gelding has cancer, and you can see the tumors all over his head and neck.

We need to commit to both of these horses. AND, while I was writing this, I RECEIVED ANOTHER CALL about more orphans at the shipping yard.

SO WE NEED HELP, AND WE NEED IT NOW. PLEASE HELP US SAVE THESE 2 and provide what they need. I am sure the emergency vet will not be cheap, but we need to help this mare RIGHT NOW! Her pain ends tonight.

We also need to save the orphaned foals, bail them, vet them and get them home.

What a horrible way to live the “golden years”. Sometimes this is just way too much to even begin to deal with.

I told our person to call the vet, and again, I am absolutely running on faith. Faith that no one out there will let that mare suffer another minute more than she has to. Can you imagine walking on a broken leg with all that weight???? She can’t even bend over to get to water.

I know there are at least 2 more orphans, and we all know how those numbers can climb quickly.

_We had to put down “Our Beautiful Boy”, the one who was saved after Lucky Man got another home, prior to Matt picking him up. He too was in absolute agony and could barely even stand. He would have also been on the slaughter truck floor. _

There is way too much heartbreak. We had a $1000 vet bill from the last kids in WA, and they same day we had a huge bill in NV, and that is the day we had to euthanize Our Beautiful Boy; So between our last 2 vet bills, the ones we are incurring with these 2 kids, and the one for the new orphans, we will be hurting tremendously, and that is not even beginning to add up all the new expenses that will come with these kids.

I can only say THANK YOU, on behalf of all the horses you have saved. Especially from the ones who would have died during transport. The gift you have given these horses is amazing, and yes, once again I am asking you to help more horses.

It is definitely “GO TIME”!

WE NEED YOU TO SAVE THEM! PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!

Y’all are amazing, and YOU HAVE SAVED SO MANY LIVES! Thank you for always being there for the horses.

Thank you as always, for your amazing love and support. We treasure all our Chilly Pepper Family and appreciate the fact that YOU MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE! We will keep on fighting as long as we have the funds to make it happen, even though on days like today it is simply too much. :(

2019 Heritage Ride Recap

This year’s Heritage Ride was a success! Participants enjoyed riding their horses on the Arapahoe Racetrack and watching the Arabian, Thoroughbred and Quarter horses race.

Riders took their horses through the Colorado Obstacle Challenge Series and 10 people won Cinch western shirts as a prize for their participation in the poker ride.

 

“The barn tours gave participants behind the scenes access to the racetrack and the opportunity to learn the innerworkings of the industry,” said Bill Scebbi, MNM, executive director of CHC.

CHC thanks everyone who participated and continues to support Colorado’s equine industry.

Save the date for the next ride! The CHC will host a ride in Douglas County on September 7. More details to come.

Chip Your Horse

Microchipping your horse is more important than you may think. The grain-of-rice-sized chip can prevent theft, help recovery after disasters and gives your horse a permanent ID.

An estimated 40,000 horses a year are taken from their owners either by strangers or opponents in civil or legal disputes. Microchipping your horse allows you to report he/she as stolen and help authorities find your horse much easier.

After the chaos of a natural disaster, a microchipped horse is much easier to locate and return to you. As Colorado residents, we face the threat of fires, floods and tornadoes. Your horses could go missing in these disasters and an unchipped horse could be impossible to return to the correct owner.

Finally, it’s affordable. The microchip and lifetime registration is $20 through the Colorado Equine Microchipping program. From there, you can call a veterinarian at your convenience to insert and register the microchip. A horse microchipped through the Colorado Equine Microchipping Program will meet all the required criteria to register for events and races.

BABIES, BABIES, BABIES, ALONG WITH STARVED GROWN UPS, NEED YOUR HELP TODAY! GOT MILK?, GRAIN, HAY, MEDS????

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

YOU DID IT! We were able to save Mama and baby, as well as the other 15. Mama Mel & Angel were picked up and are currently safe and sound.Poor Angel had some pretty horrific injuries, and we did emergency treatment, pain meds, antibiotics, etc. on arrival and the vet came out the next day to finish clean up. (Mel & I did the immediate care that was needed, but due to the level of pain the additional cleaning would cause, we wanted to wait for the Vet as she had the good pain meds.)

This last “combined rescue”, y’all saved 15 orphans and Mama Mel & Angel, and you saved 12 just prior to that. (We are still trying to get 5 of them back from being starved and help their injuries heal up.) Thank you for making that possible.

However, we are in a serious pinch from all the ongoing vet bills, and milk and feed expenses from the rescue prior and this last one. And of course we are on “stand by” for more babies.

Our most recent groups combined had well over $5000 in vet bills, and that is NOT including the $12,000 plus that AWHC stepped up for. This was what we incurred at Chilly Pepper alone. EACH BABY drinks about $300 worth of Foal Lac in a month. I just picked up $900 in milk yesterday, but that will not last very long :( So as of right now, we are going through $3,600 each month, just in MILK POWDER alone, and that does not include any of the medical, shavings for clean dry stalls, milk pellets, grain, hay, and all the other little things these fragile kids need. Every single baby that has come in has had scours and needed meds of some sort. So did the big kids, and although they are starting to improve, every single one of them was ill, in spite of their “health certs”. They ALL need special feed and some still need meds.

I am sorry to share some sad news. My heart is broken at the loss of our beloved “Little Bandito”. He was our beautiful little Miniature Stallion that came in with the swollen eyes and severe head injury. Although he was seen by the vet and was also on medicine, his injury would steal his beautiful life from us. He had some kind of head trauma during the night. He appeared to have passed quietly, but in the morning he was gone, and his eyes were no longer swollen and he had blood coming from his nose.

Sometimes rescue makes you hurt too badly, to even breathe. I honestly don’t know how much more pain and suffering I can take.

Thank you as always, for your amazing love and support. We treasure all our Chilly Pepper Family and appreciate the fact that YOU MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE!

URGENT HELP NEEDED TO SAVE MORE BABIES. – CLOCK IS TICKING – 48 HOURS TIL WE NEED TO PICK UP…..

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

GOT MILK? We are going through milk by the gallons, and MORE BABIES ARE FLOODING IN, .WILL YOU HELP US SAVE THEM?

Another 911 call. There are babies at the shipping yard and we need to buy them/pick them up by Sunday. There are at least 4, and those numbers are normally higher by the time we get there.

The nursery also was put on notice that one of the Trappers has a large group of horses and will have 
orphan foals for us next week. We need to make sure we can save them so they do not get left out on the range for coyote bait. CAN WE COMMIT TO THEM? It is up to you.

We knew the rush would be here soon, and of course it is here before we are ready.Just by Sunday we will have 12 babies IF we get the funding needed to purchase, save, feed and vet them. This does NOT include the group coming in next week. As usual, we are still in the midst of one rescue, when the next one hits.But we are on the front line and we are the difference between life and death for these babies, not to mention all the adults we save along the way when we can.

We were hoping to slow down, but instead the volume of babies in WA is doubling, and we are now once again the “go to” rescue for the Virginia Range orphaned foals in NV. As I write this, Travis is on his way to pick up 3 more in NV and bring them to Chilly Pepper.

So you can be sure we will need all of your help, every time you want us to save more lives. YOU ARE THE ONES SAVING THESE LIVES! We simply cannot do it without you.

Due to the increase in potential babies, we are going to have to expand the nursery facilities in WA, help get our satellite in ID setup with more much needed, life saving equipment, and somehow get more space where we live so we have more housing for more foals at once.

Sadly, it is that time of year when we go from one emergency to the next, and many times they are in the middle of the ongoing one. You are saving so many lives, but ALL OF IT depends on you, your donations and your love and support.

So as always, we are willing to do the 24/7 care, the boots on the ground and be available at a moment’s notice, but your funds are what make it possible. So please remember that EVERY TIME we throw out a fund raiser, WE ARE ON THE WAY to save more lives.

The front line is brutal, and we live in a horrifyingly cruel world. Your love and support is what gives us the courage and strength to keep on.

Most of you are lucky and will never have to stand and watch in horror as the horses are loaded on the slaughter truck, while their babies are screaming for their families.What we see on a daily basis is taking it’s toll. But right now, we will keep on saving as many lives as we can, and that is ALL BASED ON YOU!

THANK YOU! for each and every one of the lives you have already saved, and for sticking with us through this nightmare and helping us save as many lives as we can.

Please give generously today, so we can “git ‘er done”. I need to let the folks know whether we will have funds to purchase the babies this next week and this weekend.

BABY 911 – MORE BABIES – WA & NV. – PLEASE HELP NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

IT IS BABY TIME ALL THE TIME!!!, and we need your help Now!

It is “Go time” again, although it hasn’t ever really stopped.

They just keep ON coming, and we are about to get hit. It is the time of year when they will start coming in bunches. Now that we are the “go to” for the NV kids as well, we have even more responsibility, and it is keeping us running.

More babies means more milk, and we are going through gallons. The baby in NV is heading to Comstock this morning, and Mel will be giving the new arrival the much needed Colostrum as soon as it gets there. Matt will is heading there now, so people everywhere are working on these babies. A big thanks to Stacy, Maureen Daane and AWHC for taking care of this baby and getting it to Comstock. We will be picking him up as soon as he is done at the vet.

Mel has two babies available for adoption at our nursery in WA. The four that are still with me are not completely out of the woods, but doing well so far.

Once again we need “milk money”, as well as funding for all the other costs involved. We also need to replace our Colostrum supply at the Nursery in WA, as well as the Foal Response, and all the other goodies the newborns need. (Our babies need more help than the ones born domestically, as many of them are left behind due to illness or other physical issues.)

Please donate today and let’s keep on saving more lives!!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Starting at Midnight!

24 Hours to Give Where your Heart Is!

Starting midnight tonight, we are asking you to participate in another huge and historic event for our region, Big Day of Giving.  This event starts at midnight and you have 24 hours to join us. Once this starts, All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. (AAE) will join with over 600 other nonprofits working to make our region #1 as the most generous community in the country on this day of giving!
As many of you know, AAE strives to support and further our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming abused, neglected and/or abandoned horses and other animals, as well as those in the auction/slaughter pipeline.
This year, our goal is to engage at least 200 donors and raise $15,000 to help us FILL THE BARN to support our annual feed and care costs!
Your donation of any amount will help feed a horse or offset the cost of
veterinary care, farrier care or dental care.
$25 helps to provide feed (hay) to an average horse for about two weeks,
$50 helps provide feed (hay) for an average horse for about a month, and
$100 helps provides feed (hay) and basic care (farrier/dental care, deworming, vaccines)
to an average horse for about a month!
Help Us Make a Difference!
How Can You Help?
You can donate to AAE STARTING MIGNIGHT! Donations as little as $15 make a big difference, and your gifts can help us win some of the $100,000 in prizes that are up for grabs!
Why Wait?! Scheduled gifts will be processed tomorrow and
will guarantee you help up meet our goal! So Easy!
Let your networks know that you support our cause by sharing our posts on your social media accounts, or by creating and sharing a fundraising campaign. A good word from a donor like you is the most meaningful way for us to spread our mission! Use your social media networks or email to share your love for AAE!! Tell your friends to do the same.
