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

If there are ever funds left over from the cost of the rescue itself, the monies are used to feed, vet, care for and provide shelter and proper fencing for the animals once they are saved.
The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue:
Dear loyal SYALER friends,
As I write this Ann is out doing chores this frigid night, lugging hot water from her house to make mashes for the animals who get them, carrying and spreading hay for each group so every donkey and mule has access, graining and medicating those who need it, filling water troughs (yikes, don’t let the spigot run over and cause a skating rink now!) and most importantly checking that each animal appears bright and healthy as the day flips from dusk to dark.
In that manner, Ann works her way around to all four barns until every creature on the farm is fed, watered and content.
Come daylight, she will do it all again and hope once chores are complete she has the energy to go back to scoop manure and add fresh shavings so her charges can be as comfortable as possible.
While she has an amazing employee to help her, Ann is in the trenches caring for these lucky beasts day-in and day-out.
Rain or snow or heat or hail, there will always be Ann on the job delivering food and care to every rescue animal on the property.
Ann is not a salaried CEO. She gets paid in brays, nuzzles and eventually down the line… happy adoptions. Her commitment and dedication is out of love. Love for the animals and the mission. That sounds noble and heartfelt but the reality is that caring for a farm full of long ears is HARD work!
So while we need hay and we need vet care to be paid for, I am appealing to you tonight to send donations that will make Ann and Hannah’s job of caring for these animals 365 days and nights a year just a little bit easier.
Toward that end, please consider Long-Ear-Marking your year-end donation for:
* A new run-in shed – to make care easier
* A farm truck – always helpful when needed
* Electrical updates – a matter of safety
* Part-time employees – everyone deserves a day off
I believe it is immensely important that SYALER supporters give what they can to help keep the LABOR involved in daily care of the animals sustainable.

Ears the news…
I hope everyone had a lovely, relaxing Thanksgiving. I certainly have a lot to be thankful for. Thanks to you, our loyal contributors, Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue has found great new homes for 36 animals so far this year! We exist to help long ears in need and your financial gift makes this possible.
a lazy day at the rescue
Your donation is very important to us as it offers immediate resources that go directly to the current needs of the animals and the rescue itself. We have one, amazing paid farm hand, everything else is done by volunteers.

Your gift of $500.00 will make a long term impact on the animals in our care. Please send a donation today to help us meet our annual fund raising goal of $35,000.00. You, our loyal supporters are the reason we celebrated our tenth year of running Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue as a 501 c-3 non-profit donkey and mule rescue this September. We could not do what we do without YOU!
Please take part in making this year’s fund raiser a success. You can mail a check to SYALER, 23 Saw Mill Road, South Acworth, NH or make a payment via PayPal by clicking on the DONATE button.
I thank you very much in advance.
