911 CALL TO SAVE GRANDMA & GREAT GRANDMA FROM SLAUGHTER A CALL FOR AT LEAST 9 MORE BABIES AT THE SHIPPER! CLOCK IS TICKING

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

A HEARTBREAKING CALL FOR AN ABUSED, EMACIATED “GREAT GRANDMA”. Lilly is a 35? year old mare who was on her way to a horrific end. Her feet are horrible, she can barely walk, she is starved beyond measure and her teeth are a nightmare. Yet even after being abused and neglected, she is still the sweetest thing on this earthWILL YOU HELP ME HELP HER?

You can clearly see by how uneven her teeth are that she has had no care, and has been slowly starving to death.

I honestly don’t know if we can offer her more than good food, comfort, and no pain, but I will do every possible thing I can to make the rest of her short life the best of her life. But I need your help to do that.

ANOTHER HEARTBREAK – Grandma Sue is a wild, very old, very thin mare who does NOT deserve to be crammed into a crowded trailer and trampled on the way to the slaughter house. I honestly do not know if she will much time left either, but it should certainly be one where she is loved and cared for.

I have AT LEAST 9 MORE BABIES coming, NOT INCLUDING the 4 we just got. So we need to vet 15 more kids on Monday, so I can hopefully head back to NV. The stock trailer is finally fixed, to the tune of $2500+, but we have to be safe when we haul this precious cargo.

I realize the emergencies keep on coming, (believe me, I am emotionally and physically exhausted, especially because I am here alone), but these babies and these “old ladies” feel like their life is just as important as the other ones we saved. So PLEASE help me save them if you canThe Shipper is loading tomorrow, so I need to commit to “Grandma Sue” immediately, and let him know if you want to save her, and if I can take the babies. I have to raise enough funds to safely do so.

If you want me to save these before I head back to NV, I need your help now!
The babies have no where else to go. Every life matters, and I guess these kids are also part of the reason God kept me here, because if I had gone home, Grandma and Great Grandma would be facing a horrific ending, and we all know what that means. However, since I am still here, with your help, we can save them both.

AS ALWAYS, THANK YOU to everyone who donated, shares the posts and lifts the much needed prayers. Together, we ARE making a difference!

Dakota is hanging in there. Doc said his eye will most likely need to be removed when I get back home, but at least some of the pressure has been relieved and the horrible wound on his side is draining nicely. THANK YOU for helping him!

TODAY’S EMERGENCY INTAKE – THE REASON WHY I AM “STILL HERE”? A LIFE SAVING CALL FROM THE TRAPPER!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Meet “DAKOTA” – Chilly Pepper’s newest critical care child.

I had an emergency intake today. A 911 call from the Trapper to see if I wanted to help an injured colt. The decision had already been made to “destroy the colt”, when the trapper heard “I was still in WA”.

Is Dakota the real reason I was stuck here for so long? I knew God had a reason, and if I had left for NV as planned, this beautiful yearling would be dead right now. I am so grateful for the call and the chance to save him.

Dakota will most likely need his eye removed due to the amount of trauma. It is horribly injured and he is on pain meds and antibiotics. He will be vetted at the earliest opportunity, and sadly, his care will be spendy to say the least.

God obviously kept me here for a reason, and it was clear to me that I was supposed to be here for Dakota, so of course I agreed.

( I was actually expecting a call for something like this, critically injured or ill. )
However, I am praying hard for a different outcome than we had with my beautiful “Miracle Girl”.

Dakota was wild, but is gentling up quickly as he seems to understand we are helping. Mama Mel and Cam rushed right over so we could get him vetted and some pain meds on board. Teamwork makes the dreams work! *So grateful for the amazing folks around me!*

He also has a huge hard lump behind his right leg, which actually concerns me nearly as much as his eye. I am praying it is nothing too serious. At this point he is much more comfortable than when he arrived and is munching his hay and enjoying his pain meds.

Please help this little guy if you can and say a prayer that the infection has not spread too far. Chilly Pepper was obviously not in a wonderful financial position to take on a baby with his needs, but he is here and he is staying with me.

Again, this was a “faith decision”. How could I not when it was so obvious that I was not going home on my schedule. I am so grateful to God for all the hiccups or this little man would not be here with me.

When I get these calls, I never know what the injuries will look like or how badly they are hurt. You just get to say “yes or no”, so I said “yes”!

Please help me provide the care that he needs. Your love and support are SO APPRECIATED! Thank you to everyone who is helping us get the vehicles back on the road and the horses home safe!

Below: The Pregnant mare y’all saved!!

She came with a baby, but sadly it was not her baby. The filly has been adopted by some wonderful folks who are constantly stepping up to help me when I am up here. So again – a 3 life save!

STILL stuck in WA – broken trucks and trailer issues – AND….. – MORE BABIES, AN OLD MARE, & BRED BACK MOM & FOAL PAIR!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

URGENT – MORE HORSES NEED YOU TO HELP THEM STAY ALIVE, and as usual, their time has run out.

We have a Mare and Foal Pair, (and Mama is bred back)so that is 3 lives to save!, PLUS…

We have the mare above that I still need to pay for, (I simply couldn’t wait to fund raise and had to commit on faith.) PLUS – MORE BABIES are coming from the trapper and the shipper!

It’s been a super rough week, and as usual we don’t know for sure how many horses need us.

One of the catchers had at least 3, and that is just for today. Shipper has ?

The rescue has been hit all at once with the need for truck tires, (and it was imminent – one was ready to blow), transmission repair and brake work for the truck and wiring on the horse trailer braking system.

After getting the transmission fixed, thanks to some amazing people out there, the hauler was on the way when the brakes started to malfunction.

After checking both the truck and trailer, we are looking at another bill (not including tires or transmission) that will be anywhere from an expected bill of $1500 to $2000?? or more. (It was internal, brake pads are fine, but we still have to get the necessary repairs to actually have working brakes, and the stock trailer has some wiring that is old and sketchy ie. dangerous.

I still can’t get back to NV until we get the 2nd truck and trailer fixed. However, instead of being gone back to NV, I was here to treat one of the colts that came in with an injury. He is beautiful, but it took all of us to safely treat him without causing him unnecessary stress. He has certainly been through enough. I know there is a reason for the delays, and the babies and emergencies have not stopped.

ONCE AGAIN, THE HORSES NEED YOU! HOWEVER, the transmission AND the new tires were covered by some amazing angels who donated specifically for that! THANK YOU ANGELS! That means we need another $1500 plus ? just to finish the brakes, front end repairs and wiring on the trailer. THEN, we still need funds to save these new kids and vet them, get them home etc. etc.

IF YOU CAN HELP me save these babies and the mares, PLEASE DO SO! This has been a crazy 3 weeks and I am going to have to turn around and come back, but I know we can save these horses, IF you help make it happen!

BELOW – The injured “Slide” stares longingly at what used to be the path to his home.

It is so traumatic for these babies to be ripped away and stuffed into what must feel like prison. Help me save him, (and the rest of them), and give them the best life we can!

Thank you as always for the love and support, and THANK YOU to my Angels who covered the cost of fixing the transmission and getting the much needed tires!

TODAY – 911 CALLS from TRAPPER & THE SHIPPER. UPWARDS OF 8? BABIES and THAT IS JUST TODAY! FUNDS NEEDED ASAP TO SAVE THESE!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

More babies and a rare chance to save a beautiful stallion. They need YOU to save their lives. I received a call from the shipper and one of the catchers today.

Sadly, our coffers are close to empty. I still need about $5000 to cover the latest group’s shipping, vetting and to pay the wonderful folks who are taking care of the critters and our special needs kids in NV, while I am up here rescuing. I realize the groups are running together, (believe me, I want to go home…) But as usual, in the middle of the last 20+ rescued, as I wait for paperwork I get another call for more.

MORE BABIES need us NOW! I have to give the catcher and trapper an answer by tomorrow to see if we can take on the new ones in front of us. We need to save the stallion too. LET’S SAVE THEM ALL!!

I realize the pandemic has wiped out so much income and caused so much hardship, and I so appreciate every penny that has been donated.

However, I can only rescue as many critters as I have funds for. I need to raise the funds to finish this last group (we still have 12 available for adoption) and then have enough to safely and responsibly save this next group.

I will keep going as long as I can, but right now I cannot responsibly say yes to more horses without your help and commitment!

WILL YOU HELP ME SAVE THEM? Just this morning they were with their families. Tonight, alone but together, they scream for their Mama’s and their band. Please help us give them the gift of life. I asked, and there is no where else for them to go, and we all know what that means.

Some sad/glad news, we had to say goodbye to Ranger today. Ranger was a supposed 20 year old that y’all saved years ago. In reality he was 30 ish at the time and he has spent the last years in absolute heaven on earth with a wonderful family and their 3 kids. He has been a special needs and on mash and this morning I had to say goodbye. He had the most beautiful ending to his life, but it still hurts and it broke my heart.

THIS is a big part of what y’all do. You not only save lives, but you give these animals the most precious gift possible, by allowing them to be loved and spoiled the last years of their lives.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

I just got off the phone with one of our field representatives in Nevada, and he told me something that I have to share with you: This week, at the helicopter roundup in the Shawave Herd Management Area, a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) employee complained to him about the House amendment we and our coalition partners worked to pass this month, which would require the BLM to spend $11 million of $21 million in additional Fiscal Year 2021 funding on fertility control.

The BLM employee asked:“how are we supposed to keep removing horses if your amendment passes?”… exactly. THIS, along with what our champions in Congress are telling us, is how we know what we’re doing has the potential to really make a difference.

And this is exactly why we need to keep up the pressure — on Capitol Hill, in the field at EVERY roundup, and in the courts when it’s called for. Can you help?

At this time of year, it often feels like roundup season will never end. I know how difficult — and distressing — it is to see, and read, about hundreds of wild horses and burros being aggressively hunted down by helicopters, rounded up, separated from their tiny foals and captured all across the west.

By the end of the day on Thursday, the BLM had removed 913 wild horses as well as ALL of the 220 wild burros from the Shawave HMA in Nevada. Tragically, 8 wild horses and 1 burros have died so far from this roundup ALONE.

You can read about the details here.

But here’s what I want to stress: We’ll continue to be right there with our wild horses and burros. Filming, documenting, relaying information to our lawyers standing by and our lobbyists on Capitol Hill. We will not stop until we’ve done everything in our power to ensure wild horse and burro management is humane, sustainable and cruelty-free.

If this is something you care about also, please consider making a donation to our Roundup Fund today of any amount so we can keep up the difficult, but important, work.

Grace Kuhn

Communications Director

American Wild Horse Campaign

PS — We’re going after those who profit off cruelty right where it hurts them most: their overstuffed hip pockets. The private companies contracted by the BLM to carry out these traumatic and overly aggressive helicopter roundups are making BIG money — most times more than half a million dollars per contract — to terrorize the wild horses and burros who call our public lands home. We know — and have proved — this money is better spent on humane, and scientifically sound fertility control measures and we’re this close to seeing Congress come around to the right side of history on this issue. Thank you for all you’ve done — and continue to do — to get us here.

A SHARP KNIFE – OR A CHANCE AT LIFE? ANOTHER EMERGENCY CALL, – MORE BABIES? WHICH ONES DO WE SAVE?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Where to even start. Above –

MY LITTLE MIRACLE GIRL

Another 911 call this morning. Would I give this little girl a chance?? When she was brought in off the range, the choices were a sharp knife or give
her a chance with me.

We have seen worse legs that healed, legs that looked better but did not heal, but never have I seen such a healthy little girl with such a fighting attitude. I had to say yes.

Yesterday I was looking at 8 babies, heading out to pick up 3 more and wondering how on earth I could say yes to all of them. Once again it was on faith.

Faith that someone will skip a coffee and send that money. I know Covid has changed our world and funds are tight, but we funds are nowhere near where we need to be.

Vetting the 13 that are in front of me is going to be hideously expensive.

We have several babies with injuries, most of them I can treat, but at least one of them will need surgery and of course this little one will need some veterinary intervention and I will treat her under my vet.

MY LITTLE MIRACLE GIRL needs a miracle, and I have every intention of fighting with her as long as she wants. LOOK at how beautiful she is. That big toned butt, her shiny coat. This little girl wants to thrive to survive.

As always, I am on the front lines and it is one emergency after another.

It is exhausting and my silly shoulder is not working so that adds an extra special element of fun to the whole rescue. I wonder sometimes if that is why God sends me the worst cases, because I can relate??? Anyway, as usual the success of the rescue is in your hands. THANK YOU for doing so much to save so many lives. Please say a prayer for “My Little Miracle Girl”. She needs so many.

Reba is struggling so we are changing up her feed and running more blood work.

I have also had another sort of rescue put in front of me. There is a starving Mama kitty and 4? out of 5 babies left? So I am also working on trapping them.

Apparently the local dogs have been killing the cats left and right and “taking care of the issue”. So prayers that I can trap them and we can get them fixed and homed.

THANK YOU EVERYONE who is part of this ongoing journey to save God’s creatures. There are simply no words to express my appreciation. Y’all Rock!

CATCHER JUST CALLED – AT LEAST 5 MORE BABIES – CAN WE SAVE THEM?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

IT WON’T STOP! MORE BABIES ripped away from their families n their Mama’s. Sometimes this feels so overwhelming. Trying desperately to get back home. I have the Haulers lined up and WHAM – another phone call.

Catcher called – AT LEAST 5 BABIES, and one who “really needs a drink”. I can only imagine what shape he is in. It’s over 100 degrees today.

We have huge vet bills from these last two groups and spent a fortune for professional trims and to pay the family. We need help to get these babies safe.

I literally cried when I got the call. I’m sorry but I am worn out, emotionally and physically. It can be devastatingly heartbreaking as well as rewarding. I have been living in a hot horse trailer for about 10 days. I also have to be able to pay my wonderful folks at the ranch while I am gone. I am going to say yes, and will save these babies, but need your help to make it happen.

Thank you in advance for making this possible.

All the horses have been adopted from this last rescue. Sally, the long haired Donkey will be staying with me at Chilly Pepper. Her hoofers were horrible and she has major health issues from her lack of care.

Thank you for helping with that unique rescue.

However, these babies need help today!! I need to get them safely out if this heat.

WHO DO WE SAVE? ANOTHER CALL TODAY FOR “GRANNY” – DO WE SAVE THE PONY, THE BABIES, GRANNY – OR ALL OF THEM?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER 911 – WHO DO WE SAVE?, it’s UP TO YOU!

I am willing to fight for these kids, but they NEED YOU TO HAVE A CHANCE! IT TAKES OUR WHOLE CHILLY PEPPER FAMILY!

Granny DOES NOT need to be loaded onto a slaughter truck. She is in horrific shape, but too cute in spite of it all.

We were notified of the catcher’s running and have at least 2 babies, as well as the pony with the face that is now distorted. Her eyes are no longer level, her face seems to be twisted and we know she has a head and eye injury.

I am on the way to get Evie all fixed up, (had to wait for my truck to be ready), and in the middle of the trip received the 911 call. (Throwing out a quick plea for help from the LQ.)

WILL YOU HELP US SAVE ALL OF THEM? Obviously Granny needs alot of help, and hopefully she has no debilitating issues that will keep her from a happy life.

YOU decide if we can save them all! Thank you for always being there and saving so many lives. Let’s give these beautiful souls the love and care they deserve! They are counting on us.

It is so frustrating to have to continually be trying to raise funds, but what is even more frustrating are the calls that NEVER STOP, and the lives that are continually thrown away. So we do what we have to do. THANK YOU for stepping up and running this race to save them with me!

EVELYN UPDATE – Our beautiful EVIE is safe at our friend Mama Mel’s – HOWEVER, SHE STILL NEEDS YOUR HELP TO HAVE A CHANCE!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

MORE HELP still NEEDED FOR EVELYN!

THANK YOU for helping us keep her off the slaughter truck.

However, EVIE’s needs are just beginning. She is now safe at our friend Mama Mel’s, and as soon as my truck is ready I will be heading up there. Right now she is slowly decompressing and this is where we start her recovery.

Y’all covered her rescue, but we are expecting some big vet bills. We need to do x-rays, and I am extremely worried about all the twisting in her legs. Getting pix of all her feet, sedating her for x-rays & trimming and hiring a qualified trimmer will add up. (She is unhandled as far as I know. That is the information I was given.) Then we still have to get bloodwork, a Coggins & health certificate and bring this beautiful lady home!!

There are less expensive ways to get her x-rays and get her trimmedHowever, there is no way I am having her roped and thrown on the ground and hogtiedSedation is more expensive by far, but no one will be putting this beautiful girl through any type of rodeo. She has obviously been through heck and from here forward she will know only love.

We have no guarantees of her viability, but for now she is loved and will be treated with the utmost care and kindness.

THANK YOU to everyone who has stepped up to help get her to this point, but sadly she still needs more help.

Again, we are on the front line and have to save them now. You don’t get to choose “how many”. It’s ALL OR NOTHING!! Thank you for helping us continue saving lives.

SAVE EVELYN – HER TIME IS RUNNING OUT! ABUSED & READY TO LOAD ON THE SLAUGHTER TRUCK! WILL YOU SAVE HER?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

URGENT HELP NEEDED FOR EVELYN!

A TRULY HEARTBREAKING 911! Meet EVELYN. (Evie for short). SHE NEEDS US NOW!!

Look at those horrific feet. Can you even imagine how much pain she is in?

Can you see her forced into the slaughter trailer? Being jostled and shoved around while the other terrified horses tripped & stepped on her feet? It would be a miracle if she even survived the trip to the slaughter house without being knocked down or having her ankle broken.

She needs your help RIGHT NOW! We HAVE to save her and keep her out of the slaughter pipeline. The clock is ticking and I need to commit. WILL YOU HELP ME SAVE HER?

Sadly, Evelyn’s outcome may not be what we want. She will require x-rays to see if her coffin bones have twisted. I am praying she will be ok. She certainly deserves every chance. Worst case scenario we are rescuing her for humane euthanasia. However, we have seen LOTS OF MIRACLES! Either way, she cannot get on that slaughter trailer.

So please, let’s save this beautiful lady. She obviously has not been shown any kind of love or care. The abuse stops todayThrown away like garbage, let’s give her a miracle.

PLEASE HELP NOW!!

Again, we are on the front line and have to save them now. You don’t get to choose “how many”. It’s ALL OR NOTHING!! Thank you for helping us continue saving lives.

UPDATE ON THE 4 GELDINGS AND THE BABIES – 3 ARE STILL NOT SAFE. WILL THIS BE THE 1ST TIME WE CAN’T SAVE THEM?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

UPDATE – We have 2 orphan foals safe at Mel’s, and have enough money to save ONE of the 4.

I am hoping the Pandemic is not the reason and that this will NOT be the first time we couldn’t save the kids we are fundraising for.

It takes roughly $3,000 to save the 3 remaining geldings. (Apparently they are closer to 4 years old.)

This includes Bail, Vetting, Transportation, and that just gets them to safety. They still need care and feed until they are adopted, and I have to pay board on them once they are rescued until they are picked up.

I am praying this will not be a situation where I need to choose who lives or who dies. I cannot “pick” one or two to save and leave the others to die. This has never happened before. I know things are tight and the world is upside down. I just wanted to let everyone know where we are.

I was told if we are lucky we may have until Tuesday. It can change in a moment. If they are not saved they can be loaded at any time. We were asked to help save them, so that is what we are trying to do.

Thank you everyone who donated to save the others.

So much for a break…. (I apologize if you get this twice – having computer issues)

UPDATE – So far we have 2 babies and have been able to raise enough money to save 1 out of the 4 geldings. We got a reprieve, and still have a couple days to raise funds for the last 3. I know I certainly don’t want to have to pick which ones we save and who dies.

TRAPPER AND SHIPPER CALLED TODAY! These 4 youngsters’ need saved now! “TIME HAS RUN OUT”. Once again I need to act on faith. We simply cannot let them ship to slaughter. They are babies, approximately 2 years old?

(Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, but that was all I had.) I was notified that they will be shipping asap.

On top of that there are orphan foals coming in tonight.

Again, we are on the front line and have to save them now. Thank you for helping us continue saving lives.

These horses and the babies need help now!

Thank you.

They are in a safe, temporary place while their custom facility is being finished. Pick up should be in about 10 days.

Our AC (adoption coordinator) received a call from a wonderful and very “horsey” family that was looking for a mare & foal.

God blessed this pair with our amazing donors and their wonderful new home. A far cry from Mama and baby being ripped apart n Mom being brutally slaughtered.

SO MANY LIVES SAVED! THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT HAPPEN! BIG MATT, TEXAS TRIUMPH, TATIANA AND BATMAN URGENT VET CARE!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

YOU DID IT! You saved 41 babies, a gorgeous stallion, 1 pregnant mare, a possibly pregnant mare and Grandpa Gus, the aged Mule.

(Above are some fun, random pix, of some of the babies you saved; yes, there are probably a couple duplicates lol.) We had a heck of a time matching up their paperwork. Some of them are identical except for a few of the hairs on their stars.

THANK YOU to each and every one who donated, prayed or shared the information. Most of the babies have already been adopted, and we actually have folks waiting for the more to come in. (Something we seldom see.) We still have several needing surgery or specialized care and we will be adopting them out once they are deemed healthy enough to do so.

Our adoption teamed rocked these latest rescuesKari Robie, Emily Nes, Mama Mel, Danny & Danniell Dustin, and our Adoption Coordinator Helen Ardire, all came through to get these babies to their new homes. We incurred the rescue, vetting costs etc., but everyone working together is what makes this work. So THANK YOU TEAM! We could not do it alone.

However, today we need help back at the rescue in NV ! (We also need help for the Hernia surgery on one of our babies in Idaho.)

Big Matt, Texas Triumph, Tatiana and BatMan all need your help with some urgent veterinary care on Wednesday. Our colt in Idaho has his surgery the next day. He has an inguinal hernia?

We have been working on the drafts’ feet, but they are both having severe pain issues when it comes to lifting their back feet. Both of them have issues with their rear legs, Big Matt’s hocks are a mess, and we are still trying to diagnose all the issues Tex is having. If Tex stands still very long his back legs start shaking and he has trouble standing on them. (This was one of the reasons he needed to be shipped straight to slaughter and was on the “do not adopt or rescue list.”)

So after talking with Doc, they will be coming out on Wednesday and we will be getting a much better handle on both of the big guys’ feet. We were told very clearly when we rescued Big Matt that the issues with his hocks combined with his weight would be a “thing” when he needed hoof care. We have been working on his feet all along, but simply need to lay him down fully to really assess and do the complete job. (The issue with Big Matt’s hocks, feet etc. was discussed as to whether it was a reason not to keep him alive. Since he LOVES his life, the answer is obviously YES.)

Batman is getting ready to go to his new home. Wahh, sucks for me, but wonderful for him and his new family. However, he has recently developed a hernia that is continuing to get larger and larger and Doc thinks his intestines are coming out. So he needs surgery asap!

We are looking at close to $1500? on Wednesday to get Batman his surgery and the other 3 taken care of. Special needs children are not cheap, but they have all been through so much they deserve whatever care they need to have the best possible “rest of their lives”.

So please help us get them the care they need on Wednesday. If you would like to donate directly to the vet, please call Zimmerman Veterinary Clinic at 775-623-0981.

You can donate directly for milk or Texas Triumph’s grain at J & J Feed at 775-625-1200. Texas Triumph cannot eat anything but mash. He has damage to the lower muscle(s) in his esophagus. Let me tell you that boy can eat. He has lots of issues but is such a happy camper. Vet still says to be ready to walk out there someday and find him “aspirated with a possibly deadly case of pneumonia”. So we love him every day we have him.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS DONATED MILK, WIPES & VASELINE! WE SO APPRECIATE IT, but there is no name showing who sent it when it is delivered!!

How to reopen your barn following the COVID19 quarantine

The COVID-19 pandemic is responsible for a complete shift in the daily lifestyle of everyone in the United States, including our horses. Living under quarantine, curfews, and learning how to work from home has reiterated how important barn visits are to mental health. As states across the country relax stay-at-home requirements, we have some tips on how to keep your horses, horse people, and your barn as healthy as possible.

  • Limit gatherings to as few people as possible, and continue to maintain the recommended social distancing protocols that include six (6) feet of separation between individuals. Just because the quarantine is being lifted doesn’t mean the threat is over.  COVID-19 can be detected in the air for up to 3 hours after being transmitted. Some stables have created a schedule where clients can reserve time slots for their visits, reducing the amount of people in the barn by only allowing 3-4 people present at once. This may be the most appropriate step forward for those barns in states that were forced to close outright.
  • Encourage proper hand-washing and provide as many locations/opportunities for people to do so. Due to the structure of the virus, washing hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds is the most effective way to prevent contamination. Hand sanitizer must contain at least 60% alcohol to be effective.
  • Make a daily or hourly cleaning chart to prevent virus transmission. Disinfect common contact areas regularly and avoid sharing equipment and supplies between people, COVID-19 can live on copper for up to four hours, cardboard for 24 hours, and plastic and stainless steel for up to 3 days.
    • Non-porous materials (leather bridles/saddles/halters, nylon halters/lead ropes, gate latches, door handles, spray nozzle) harbor the virus longer than porous materials (cotton lead ropes, saddle pads)
    • Clean communal leather tack daily with tack cleaner. Knowing how to properly disinfect tack is useful for any equestrian, be it for strangles or COVID-19. Aerosol sprays such as Lysol tend to strip leather of oils, so if you use an aerosol spray to disinfect your tack, be sure to let it dry completely and then recondition the leather to protect it. Soap and water is another effective way to break down the lining of bacteria and viruses and is often safe for most tack. Diluted bleach disinfects well, but leather may dry out and crack from repeated treatments.
    • Disinfect gate latches, spray nozzles, cross tie snaps, pitchforks, wheelbarrows, and other frequently used items regularly or after contact with personnel
    • Stall door latches, hose ends, light switches, faucets and feed scoops should be cleaned and disinfected frequently.
  • There may be state requirements to wear gloves or face coverings to reduce the risk of spreading germs. Many businesses will be looking to taking the temperature of those present in and will not allow anybody to come if they register a temperature or feel sick and this may go a long way to helping clients feel comfortable.
  • Long story short, nobody spends 2 months on the couch unscathed, so take it easy getting back into training. Many riding stables are closed to tenants and all equine events have been canceled in an effort to reduce the virus’s spread. Due to these closures, many horses are not receiving regular workout schedules, or maybe no exercise at all. While daily lifestyles are difficult for all during this pandemic, adapting a horse’s schedule to a life after quarantine can be equally as challenging. Exercise related injuries would be a terrible way to end the quarantine.

Making boarders and clients safe and secure will be critical in getting the horse industry back on its feet, and each facility, whether private or public, should have written policies regarding COVID-19 and expect all clients and professionals to adhere to them. Keeping our horses healthy has always been a priority, but without their owners you can’t keep the lights on. All of these tips, and more, can be found on the AHC COVID-19 Resource Page, please visit it here as we continue to update it during this transition.

Congress, Administration Move Toward Next Steps for  “CARES Act 2.0” 

Since Congress passed the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act on April 24, also known as “CARES Act 1.5,” lawmakers and small business groups continue to identify ways to refine and expand the scope of the $660 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).  For example, the horse industry is working with the Farm Bureau and others to secure eligibility of 501(C)5 groups for Paycheck Protection.  For background purposes, the tax code classifies 501(C)5 organizations as agriculture groups and labor unions.  If these ag-focused trade associations don’t receive emergency funds, then many agriculture operations could lose an important “go–to” source for economic data, best practices, and policy information.  The horse industry is also lobbying to include 501(c)6 groups – which include a broad swath of trade and professional associations – within the loan program.  Extending eligbility to more 501(C) groups could prove to be an uphill battle.  For example, many Republicans might oppose inclusion of 501(C)5’s on the grounds that they oppose labor unions.  And on the 501(C)6 front, many Democrats could raise objections, on the grounds that most Chambers of Commerce, a key pillar of the business lobby, classify as 501(C)6.  At the end of the day, lawmakers might agree to include “all of the above,” sealing a deal that has something for everybody.

Congress, SBA Must Make Paycheck Protection More “Ag Friendly
While Congress discusses CARES Act 2.0, the horse industry and its allies are also advocating for ways to expedite delivery of funds into the hands of agricultural borrowers.  AHC, the National Cattlemen Beef Association and the Farm Bureau, among others, are requesting more resources for rural lenders to distribute Paycheck Protection loans.  Specifically, the coalition is requesting that Congress include Farm Credit System lenders within future “set asides” for community banks.  The coalition is also encouraging Congress to continue to pressure SBA to process applications as quickly as possible so that funds can be delivered to rural America without further delay.  With respect to covered expenses related to rent, the horse industry and its allies are also asking that Congress include the rental of business-related equipment as an eligible expense under Paycheck Protection.  Also, a staff member of the Senate Agriculture Committee has stated that committee leadership supports publication of SBA guidance tailor-made for agriculture.

Lawmakers, Administration, Compile Wish Lists for CARES Act 2.0
Congress could face a prolonged stand-off in negotiations.  Not only will Democrats and Republicans in Congress have their differences, but the Administration will also have input.  For example, the Trump Administration has proposed a major infrastructure piece within a future package.  Many GOP leaders criticize this idea, mainly because of the hefty price tag.  Because the next package will begin to move in the House, many of the Democrats’ priorities will be embedded in the original bill, putting Senate Republicans on defense.  A House Democratic source identifies a $500 billion boost for state and local governments, more money for mass transit, and eliminating the cap on the State and Local Tax deduction, commonly referred to as the SALT deduction, included in recent tax reform legislation, as priorities in the next relief package.  GOP members, however, will advocate for civil liability protections related to COVID-19 exposure, an issue that will be a point of contention with Democrats.  While a path forward remains uncertain for items not directly related to COVID-19, lawmakers could face political pressure to move more quickly on narrow packages that directly address emergency relief measures, including SBA’s loan programs.

SBA Announces Record Processing of Paycheck Protection Loans
On May 3, one week following release of the second batch of funds totaling $310 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program, SBA announced that it made more 2.2 million loans.  This figure surpasses the 1.6 million loans distributed pursuant to “round one,” which began on April 3 and dried up on April 16.  During the first week, SBA had distributed $175 billion of loans, more than half the allotment authorized under the “Paycheck Protection and Health Care Enhancement Act,” also known as “CARES Act 1.5.”  According to SBA, the average size of the loans distributed totals $79,000, which is less than half the size of the loans disbursed during the first round.  To view a copy of the SBA statement related to loan statistics, please see the following link:  https://www.sba.gov/about-sba/sba-newsroom/press-releases-media-advisories/joint-statement-administrator-jovita-carranza-and-secretary-steven-t-mnuchin-success-paycheck

 Resources for Equine Associations

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a very significant on equine associations, as it has with all aspects of our lives. For national, regional and state breed and discipline organizations, the impact is both financial and a public relations dilemma. How do you promote memberships when the impetus for joining is often competition-related, and competitions are delayed or cancelled? What do you say to trainers whose livelihoods depend on competing and buying and selling horses? How do you respond to instructors who need lesson riders, but have had to close their doors to the public due to state regulations?

Many organizations have taken steps to provide guidance for their members as states start to gradually reopen. For example, the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) has developed a COVID-19 Action Plan for Returning Safely to Competition. The Joint Leadership Council (JLC), which consists of leaders from the American Hackney Horse Society, American Morgan Horse Association, American Road Horse & Pony Association, American Saddlebred Horse Association, Arabian Horse Association, United Professional Horsemen’s Association and the United States Equestrian Federation, has created guidelines for reopening barns. The American Paint Horse Association passed an emergency stimulus bill that included extending an extra year of eligibility for Novice Youth and Novice Amateurs, Youth in their last year of Walk-Trot, Youth 13 & Under and Youth 18 & Under, and Green classes, and modifying the requirements for Regional Club eligibility, due to limitations they might encounter due to event restrictions in 2020 due to COVID-19.

These are simply a handful of the ways organizations are working to help their members adapt to our current “normal”. True to its nature, the horse industry is working together to help everyone weather this storm.

You GAVE in BIG Way!

We have all been so moved by your support of All About Equine this year. Through GivingTuesday and Big Day of Giving, 140 donors gave nearly $23,700 to help horses in need. We are so grateful you rose to the occasion. Your giving exceeded our expectations!With your help, we continue our work to help horses like Georgia, and sometimes their humans. Not long before COVID-19, Georgia’s family of five lost their home in a fire. After subsequent challenges with employment, rebuilding, temporary housing, and stay at home orders, they felt the best thing for Georgia would be a better life than they could give. She is scheduled for her dental next week. Her vaccines will be updated next week, and a microchip inserted. Once updated, she will be evaluated and available for adoption, soon.

We are so GRATEFUL for the love and support our community has shown AAE.

From the bottoms of our hearts,

Thank YOU!

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!
