Meet Washakie, a famed wild stallion who lives in the McCullough Peaks Herd Management Area (HMA) outside of Cody, Wyoming. Earlier this month, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) unveiled a plan to remove more than half of his herd in the fall. Please take a moment to read about Washakie and what would be lost if we don’t take action.

Dakota’s Story!

0

This is an update from All About Equine Rescue.

All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc.

Dakota

Dakota is a tribal mustang originally from the Dakotas. We first met him in the fall of 2021 when we picked him up from a distressed sanctuary.

He’s a little guy, mid-teens, and we were told he’d been ridden in the past. This handsome gelding was fearful of humans in general, but he really did not like it when anyone approached him from the side or behind too quickly. He also had painful heel cracks that closely approached his coronet bands. Dakota’s basic care had been neglected for some time.

Once at AAE, his hoof and dental care needs were met, and he received vaccines, deworming, and a microchip. During an exam, his concerns for people approaching from the left side and behind were discovered. He cannot see out of his left eye because the lens is detached.

Dakota is a very sweet, social guy. He seeks attention and enjoys grooming and interaction. He’s good with the vet and farrier. He loads fairly well, and travels fine. Dakota was introduced to a saddle, and he handled it well. He thoroughly enjoys his time in the pasture with his herdmates. However, he has a pull back issue when trying to remove him from his herd. When he’s brought in with one of his herdmates, he does very well. When handled and once removed from herd, he does well. Removing him alone is still a work in progress.

While we’ve loved spending time with the darling Dakota, we’d love it even more if he could find his forever person! If you think Dakota sounds like a match made in heaven, please visit his bio to learn more and submit an adoption inquiry.

Can’t adopt but want to help Dakota? Tell your friends, family, co-workers, and other horse people in your life about him!

Thank you for your support helping horses each and every day!

Your donations, volunteering, adopting, and social media shares & likes allow us to make this work possible!

UPDATE on the Starvation Case. 7 More Horses to Save if we can raise the funds to make it happen.

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

2023 1st horses c

2023 1st horses b

2023 horses dUPDATE – There are still more horses to pull. (7 or 8, I believe).

We are working on getting the last ones, but still haven’t even begun to raise enough for the 1st group.

This is when I have to run on Faith Alone. We raised about $3000, and that just about covers yesterday’s vet bill which will easily be over $1500 for Coggins and some blood tests, and transportation for the youngsters to our sister rescue in Idaho.

We haven’t even begun to raise enough funds to feed and care for the 1st group, yet I need to grab the last ones. Luckily Dustin’ Time Rescue is taking on the youngsters, They will need help with rehabbing, feeding and gelding them..

Rescue is expensive. Hay costs are exorbitant, these kids obviously need lots of extra care, and we still have to feed our permanent residents.

Please help now if you want to save this last group of horses. As you can clearly see, they are in horrific shape. They ARE getting fed (PTL!) while we figure this out, as long as we “git ‘er done quickly.

I know we have lots of emergencies, BUT IT IS TRULY LIFE AND DEATH for these horses. It is not just grabbing the cute ones, or the easy ones, or creating orphans so you can fundraise. It is stepping up and figuring out how to do the impossible. YOU, MY CHILLY PEPPER FAMILY, are the ones who do that. YOU are doing the real rescue for the horses with no other options. Let’s do it again. These horses are absolutely precious and deserve every good thing for the rest of their lives.

Let’s start 2023 by saving EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THESE PRECIOUS SOULS.

If you want to help with the Vet Bill, call Goldendale Veterinary at 509-773-0369.

I appreciate every single one of our Chilly Pepper Family. God has truly blessed this rescue!

Have a safe, blessed and life saving 2023!

1st rescue 2023 2

1st rescue 2023We are starting off 2023 with a huge and tragic call for help.

There are 18? wild mustangs, domestics? who are starving to death.Their owners are deathly ill and have reached out for emergency help.

There are 6 ? young stallions who will need gelded, once they are stable enough for surgery, and every one of these will need special care extra groceries, vetting etc.

It costs roughly $450 to feed and care for one of these horses AFTER IT IS RESCUED. This DOES NOT include the initial expenses to save the horse, transportation, get it coggins and gelded if needed. Gelding can be $350 on up, and I HAVE TO RAISE ENOUGH to support every horse for at least 3 months.

Gelding the 6 stallions will be close to $3000 with their vaccines, and that is just a drop in the bucket.

WILL YOUHELP ME SAVE THESE LIVES?

I DO NOT WANT TO STAND IN FRONT OF A WET, COLD AND STARVING HORSE AND SAY “SORRY, BUT I COULDN’T RAISE ENOUGH MONEY TO SAVE YOU!”

I am heading out, but will ONLY be able to pick up as many as we have funds to take care of. We need at LEAST 3 MONTHS worth of groceries as hay is upwards of $30 a bale in many places for the good stuff and these kids obviously will need special feed and care.

PLEASE DONATE NOW SO I can get these kids to a warm dry place with good feed.

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Time is running out.

I’ll keep this quick: In just a few short hours, our biggest fundraising opportunity of the year — unlocking a $150,000 matching gift — expires. We’re still $24,312 from reaching our goal, and I’m worried that for the first time ever, we may not get there.

Together, we can ensure that our work in 2023 gets off to the strongest start possible; with funding for our ambitious legal, legislative, and field program goals.

Can you chip in whatever you can afford — one last time in 2022 before it’s too late?

I can’t wait to see what we achieve together for our wild horses and burros in the year ahead. If it’s anything like the momentum we’ve experienced this year, we have a lot to be hopeful about. Thank you for all that you’ve done to power our movement in 2022.

Together, we’ve accomplished so much, so I want to share with you a video our team put together highlighting some of our 2022 victories. We’re so proud of what we’ve been able to do and are so grateful for your belief in our work, Meredith.

Will you take a moment to watch and then make a 2X matched donation to help us finish the year off strong?

Very Happy News

We always look forward to receiving mail this time of year, when the thoughtful cards and happy news seem to outweigh the bills. Today was the most spectacular mail day and the timing could not be more perfect as we go from the dark, toward the light.

In today’s mail, we got the OFFICIAL letter from the IRS saying “We’re pleased to tell you we determine you’re exempt from the federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501 (c)(3). Donors can deduct contributions they make to you under IRC section 170. You’re also qualified to receive tax-deductible bequests, devices, transfers, or gifts under Section 2055,2106, or 2522.”

Huge thanks to all of you who believed in us, in our sense of integrity and transparency throughout what was a huge, emotional ordeal for us.

Our beloved treasurer, Jean Marie Cross Nichols along with the help of her bookkeeper friend is mostly responsible for making this happen, they put so many long hours into sorting all the paperwork. Thank you both for all of your hard work!

Love and light,

Ann, Hannah, Elise and Jean

‘Tis the Season – Day 11 Jennings

This is an update from All About Equine Rescue.

All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc.

It’s that time of year we share with you the work we’ve all been doing throughout the year. We missed last year while we were in the middle of our Big Move, so we have some catching up to do. The stories you’ll read this month are your donations, volunteering, likes, shares, and other support at work. We hope you enjoy!

JENNINGS

Jennings is a 2005 mustang that came to AAE in July 2020 from a distressed mustang sanctuary situation due to a family health crisis. After 20 years of serving mustangs, the sanctuary was unable to adequately meet the needs of the horses. Jennings had a rapidly growing mass on his sheath. It was a suspect squamous cell carcinoma. Jennings has little skin pigment, and the pink skin in and around his eyes was also very agitated, likely from the sun. His weight was on the thin side, as well. When picked up, he was a friendly guy, handled easily, and loaded willingly onto the trailer.

Once at AAE, Jennings was seen by Dr. Stolba. Jennings mass was removed shortly after, and he recovered well. Biopsy results indicated the mass was a metastatic melanoma. Fortunately, the biopsy showed clean margins with no vascular invasion. We were on a guarded prognosis for 90-days, and at re-exam, no additional regrowth was observed, and no additional regrowths have been identified since. Due to Jenning’s lack of pigment, he is prone to recurrence or growths in other areas, and he needs ongoing monitoring. We’re about two and one-half years out, and no reoccurrence.

 

Jennings is a very sweet and very social guy, really a character with a big personality. He loves to be with humans, and is always looking to interact. In general, he’s easy-going, quiet, soft, and respectful. He’s good with the farrier, enjoys grooming and attention; however, he lacks confidence and needs slow introductions to new things to reassure him.

 

Jennings is low-level in the herd, and is easily pushed off food; however, he’s very active and playful with several of the other geldings and one old mare. At times, he can be protective of his food and/or a his buddy. He finds confidence in another horse, typically a mare, and bonds tightly. Separation anxiety can be an issue.

  

We were told Jennings was ridden in the past, but it had been several years. He was evaluated under saddle, and spent a short time in training. His lack of confidence was more pronounced. He was anxious and unsettled, so the focus became building his confidence. Jennings has improved, but needs more consistency with an experienced rider to bring him along slowly and with a quiet, calm approach. He is not suitable for a beginner/novice rider. A restart would be advised. Start fresh, reinforce a strong foundation, work slow and build cofidence, and you’ll create an incredible bond with this sweet guy.

Jennings is current with dental and hoof care, vaccines, and deworming, and he has a microchip. Due to his areas of unpigmented skin, and history with the growth on his sheath, he is more prone to potential skin growths. A fly mask with UV protection covering his eyes and nose is helpful, too, but he dislikes fly masks and escapes them routinely. We use sunscreen for added protection. Close monitoring will help nip things in the bud should anything appear.

If you’d like to make a year end donation in honor of Jennings to support AAE’s ongoing operations into 2023, you can click the donate button to give a gift that counts.

3 PREGNANT MARES – 41 hours until pick up. Clock is ticking. They need a Christmas Miracle!

Christmas 1 girls

We have a very last minute call to action. I have 41 hours until I need to be sitting in the driveway to save these mares.

I was approached prior to today, and said “no”. I simply don’t have funds to do this rescue.

However, when I woke up this morning and looked at my phone, the 1st message was “Do Not Be Afraid”. Minutes later I answered the phone and was asked once again to save these mares as they LITERALLY have no where else to go.

So I am once again going on faith. Although weather conditions are ugly, my trailer is now hooked up and ready to go.

I need to raise upwards of at least $4000 to take on these pregnant mares. It will literally cost $2,000 to pick them up, get them back here and get them vetted, then get them transported home to Nevada. (This is just the fee for a Coggins test and a Health Certificate.) The 3 of them are not only big beefy girls, they are also pregnant.

If they ended up in the wrong hands, the fact that they are so big and healthy, would make them prime candidates for a kill buyer.

They need good groceries and we all know the price of hay, feed, bedding, diesel, supplements and everything else needed to care for the horses has costs have risen exorbitantly, so have the prices for grain, diesel and everything else we need to save them.

IT’S UP TO YOU!

DO I say YES?

Do we save these beautiful girls and give them their Christmas Miracle? I am ready and willing to do what is needed, will you help save their lives??

Most of you might have seen posts about these horses. Chilly Pepper is starting at ground zero with our fundraiser. We have received zero dollars that were donated to other folks.

If you donated for these beautiful girls elsewhere I would contact the folks you donated to.

A Very Thankful Giving Tuesday

As many of our newsletter supporters know, last year was very challenging for SYA and all involved. We went through a major farm pandemic, whereas this year we are navigating through a worldwide pandemic. There is no way we would have been able to get through last year without all of our caring supporters to help us, financially and with your kind encouragement.
So to those of you who are reading, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us to continue to save donkeys and mules in need. We could not do it without you.

Some of you may remember Walton and Hobie, who we rescued just a year ago this month. They could not have landed in a better home. These guys have gotten the happy ending they so deserved.

Thanksgiving
By Hobie
Oh, hi! My name is Hobie, and I’m living in a dream!
My BFF is Walton, we are such a happy team.
But it was just a year ago we knew that we would die
Without some help from folks like you, and let me tell you why.
I wasn’t always happy! I was used for basketball.
My bones and knees still show the scars of many slips and falls.
Walton was a fine show-horse, somebody’s pampered boy
Until the day they let him go, discarded like a toy.
We landed in a killer’s lot, lost, shivering, and scared.
We were starving, cold, and wounded, and it seemed nobody cared.
The other horses on the lot were fighting for their lives.
Their circumstances were as bad as those we have described.
They kicked and bit and drove us off so we could never eat.
My gentle friend could not defend us from their teeth and feet.
Our coats were thin, our teeth were bad, our ribs were caving in.
We thought that we would never have a loving home again.
A kind man found us just in time and took us from that hell.
He kept us safe until he found a place that suited well.
Hannah came and fetched us, and we really made her cry;
And then Ann and Hannah fed us and they made us warm and dry.
They fixed our teeth and trimmed our feet and made us whole again.
And then they found our great new home! And here we will remain
To roam a big green pasture with soft beds and piles of hay,
And eat warm mush and many treats, and petting all the day.
So if you wonder if it counts that you support our cause,
remember what you’ve done to save many lives like ours.
Thanksgiving is the day that we say thanks to SYA
Because without your help, we would not be alive today!

In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things!

Over the past few weeks and months, the entire world has been coming together to stand up, help out, give back, and heal.

BABIES, BABIES, BABIES – THEY JUST KEEP COMING! CAN WE KEEP SAVING THEM ALL?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

IT IS BABY TIME!!!

6 babies in WA, and 3 in NV. We are in full on Baby Season, and it is a bit more complicated this year. Not only are we, (so far), pretty much the only rescue working on saving as many of the Yakama wild horses being shipped to slaughter as we can, we are once again the “go to” rescue in NV for the Virginia Range orphaned and injured horses.

So while I was in WA handling those kids, Matt was in NV, and picked up 3 more orphaned foals.

As always, we try and work with as many other folks as we can. Thankfully we were able to leave 3 of the babies with other “team members” in WA. To borrow a quote from Block Chain, “Team Work, makes the Dream Work”.

However, we still have 7 orphans here who are are ages 2-3 days up to a couple months? And then we have our 5 or 6 month old who is barely here, came in literally covered in ticks and starving to boot.

We still have 8 of the Pauite yearlings from the Palomino Valley roundup, as well as all the kids from the latest rescue. (Photo below shows some of the boys from the prior rescue.) Good news, Buddy may get to keep his eye, although he is still blind on one side. We have lots of starving kids who will need special groceries, and more vet care, for some time.

So the babies NEED MILK MONEY, and we still need to do more vetting on the kids from the latest rescue. We had some wonderful donations, which nearly caught us up from last month, so we are once again current with all of our vet bills.This is crucial as we need to be able to call them for our emergencies, which come up often when you are on the front line. So thank you to EVERYONE who helped us get so close to being caught up.

But with 7 babies we are looking at about $2100 JUST FOR MILK POWDER for one month’s worth of Foal Lac. This does not include milk pellets, grain, shavings etc. We use about 6 bags a day to keep the babies in soft clean beds :). The list of items for these babies is endless, as most of y’all know.

NV babies are about 3 hours away to pick up, but it still costs a fortune to drive there and back. It was close to 1000 miles to pick up these kids, even though it was “local – LOL) in our own state.

Of course with the additional number of babies, and the additional injured horses that we are now going to be responsible for, we will have to set up some more corrals and shelter. Right now we are at capacity, so we need to get a bit more space. It’s only $12,000 for the adjacent 12 acres. We could easily use a hose during the summer to run water, and we would need to fence it and put up some shelter.

As the horses’ needs grow, so does ours if we are going to provide the best care for them.

THANK YOU AS ALWAYS FOR SAVING ALL OF THESE LIVES! IT IS BECAUSE OF YOU AND YOUR GENEROSITY THAT ANY OF THIS IS POSSIBLE!!!

Hi,

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!. Your donation and your love and support for these horses has made it possible to change so many lives.

Together we have saved well over a thousand lives. You are the reason we can do this, and as hard as it is, I am extremely grateful that together, we are making such a difference.

I am getting ready to make milk for the babies we just picked up. (The photo above are some of the milk babies we saved last month.). I will send new pix out shortly, but wanted to let you know how much everything you do is appreciated.

I am not always quick to get out personal thank you’s, but I hope you will forgive me as it is just myself and my hubby doing all of this. I know it doesn’t excuse a slow thank you, but it’s all I got.

God bless and please know how much we appreciate you being part of our Chilly Pepper Family. Together we are strong and can keep on saving lives.

Hugs and love,

Palomino (Lauri) and Matt

GO TIME AGAIN – CAN WE SAVE THESE BEAUTIFUL SOULS? AS ALWAYS, CLOCK IS TICKING – DEADLINES VARY 24 HRS – 5 DAYS!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi y’all,

Thank you for saving the last group of Texas kids. At the bottom of the page you will see a bit of what we are facing with their rehab.

HOWEVER, once again we received a call asking for help. The above kids are some of the ones we were asked to save. (We won’t know for sure which ones we will be able to save until we have the funds to secure them. But if one is already safe, we will save another one)

As Matt is going to be a third of the way there when he delivers the next group of horses to their new homes, this would be the time to save some more lives.

We wanted to give everyone a chance to save these beautiful souls from the slaughterhouse floor and to help save more lives. We are more than willing to “git ‘er done” as long as we can raise enough funds to make it happen.

There is a heavily bred mare, a beautiful branded mustang mare, donkeys, injured kids etc. They all need our help and as always, time is of the essence.

I am heading for surgery on Monday, but it should be an outpatient type of thing, (just replacing my generator), and Matt is ready and willing to go get these kids when he delivers the other 6 to their new homes.

As always, it all depends on you. We will keep doing the work if we have the funds to do so. Out of the last 9, 6 are heading to their forever homes. As you can see by the pictures below, there are 3 who need intensive care and they will remain at Chilly Pepper for the time being. BOTH of the mare’s front hooves are in horrific shape, and she will need major care. Our beautiful Princess Sahreena was emaciated and she will need lots of love and care. She also came in with some pretty gnarly injuries, but they are healing well.

Please help us save the “new kids”. We are looking at about $6000 plus to hopefully save 9? more lives, including transportation, rescue and vetting to get them home.

Again, this is not our “normal rescue”, but since Matt is already headed that way, we got the call, and the timing is perfect to combine the two, we are definitely willing to go the extra mile if you want to save these kids and keep them off the slaughter truck.

An Adoption Story: Cahill and Maya

Maya came to AAE when her owner was facing a terminal health condition and would no longer be able to care for Maya or work with her.  Maya was initially rescued by her former owner from an extreme neglect and abuse case, and one of her former owner’s priorities was assuring Maya would never have to face abuse again.  She knew AAE would work to find a safe and loving home.
Maya was transferred to AAE at the end of September 2016.  She unloaded from the trailer after a marathon haul from near the Oregon border, and she was a tad lame.  Maya had some challenging trust issues and physical limitations resulting from a past hip injury from her abuser.  She also had DSLD, further limiting her adoption potential.
While at AAE, she was given time and space to settle in.  She was showered with love and kindness by her many special volunteer friends, and she was housed on flat ground to minimize the stress on her body.  Thankfully, her old hip injury and DSLD maintained very well, and she never showed any discomfort.  With the help of her special friends at AAE, Maya learned that humans weren’t all bad.  She started to really enjoy grooming and all the pampering showered upon her.
  
Cahill came to AAE in March 2018 when his family was unable to provide the care he needed.  He had also been rescued from a previous neglect situation where he had been living alone in a pasture and not cared for for years. The family that rescued him was told he was a former sheriff’s horse.   He was emaciated and in poor condition when they offered to take him in.  They tried to provide the care he needed, but they were unable to help him. They had a family crisis of their own.  They reached out to AAE and asked for help.
When Cahill arrived at AAE, he was very thin.  He also had substantial skin issues, a thick coat that helped hide his bones.  He needed dental work, and he was very depressed.  After starting him on a refeeding program and his vet evaluation, he had a much needed spa-day.  He had caked on dirt on his limbs, and he was given a medicated bath.  He enjoyed the water and the relief that seemed to come from treating his skin and getting rid of all the dry, caked on dirt.  There was hope in his eyes.
Cahill began to improve and put on much needed weight.  His skin cleared, but not before he lost nearly every ounce of hair on his body.  His head and trunk were practically bald in the cold of winter, but he was grateful for blankets and the hair that remained on his legs.  His eyes brightened, and he started acting with more interest in the horses and world around him.  He enjoyed his daily luvin’ from his volunteers, and day by day, he evolved into such a good ol’ boy.
 
We are happy to share that our long-timer, Maya, and our short-timer, Cahill, recently found their “golden pond” with their dream family in Nevada City.  When Maya met her new mom, it was obvious they were both experiencing a “love at first sight” moment.  Maya is not one to approach just anyone, but when she met her mom, there was no hesitation.  She walked up to her and there was instant pleasure in their exchange.  Cahill, on the other hand, took it all in and drew mom AND dad in as he relished in their attention.
These two lucky souls got their soft landing in the perfect forever home where they are lavished with daily love and attention, and in return, their new mom and dad are say their lives have been so enriched by these two, and they have been fulfilled in being able to make such a big difference in the lives of Maya and Cahill.
It’s so gratifying to see the transitions horses make when they’re given the love and care they need, not only the physical transition, but the new hope they share with humans. They hold no grudges, and they become such a reminder of foregiveness, resilience, and unconditional living.  Rescue horses are such a gift.
Thank YOU for supporting AAE and making possible happy endings for horses like Maya and Cahill!!

Featured Intake: Beau

Beau came to AAE in mid-July when his aging owner was no longer able to care for him, and his caretaker was moving out of state.  Beau is a 28 year old Arabian gelding.  He was a truly beloved companion to the family, he had been with them his entire life, and he had carried many a rider on his back.  Still, his condition was saddening.
It was a bit eye-opening when Beau arrived.  He was a bit on the emaciated side, and he was “empty”.  Dr Stolba came to check him out and drew blood to evaluate his “systems”. His diet had been four scoops of senior pellets (AM and PM), about 20-25 pounds a day. You would think plenty for this lil guy, right? You could tell immediately simply eating was a challenge.  He chewed very gingerly, and food fell all over around the trough.
Sadly, when Dr. Stolba opened his mouth, the exasperated sigh was palpable.  Beau did not have many teeth, but the ones he had were much overgrown, some loose and one so long it was pressing into the roof of his mouth causing an ulcer.  He could not close his mouth to chew.  It’s no wonder the poor ol’ guy looked like he did; he couldn’t eat. Four larger teeth were extracted, one so sharp it could cut paper.  The few remaining teeth were floated, and he was finally able to eat comfortably. Boy, did he enjoy it.  Now it seems he’s eating for two.
Moving on to the end, Beau sheath got some much needed attention, and he was beyond relief when a rock sized bean was removed. It didn’t take long to see the brightness return to Beau’s eyes and a little pep in his step. For now, Beau is doing very well, and he is slowly redeveloping his svelte lil’ bod!

EMERGENCY HELP NEEDED TO RE-OPEN THE ORPHANAGE AND SAVE THE BABIES!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi,

It’s been awhile, and Matt and I have been running like crazy. We sorted once again this morning and he has 6 of our beautiful horses in the trailer on the way to their new homes at this moment. Last week we placed 6 of the babies and have more folks coming to pick up on Monday. THAT IS THE GOOD NEWS! THANK YOU for making that possible!

DESPERATE NEED – We need to raise funds for gates, panels and a nursery building so we can keep saving the orphaned and injured foals that are currently coming off the range in mass numbers. We need funds for vetting, milk replacer, hay, munchies etc. and to keep purchasing and saving these babies, and we have to do it now!

URGENT SITUATION #1

The “Orphanage” which was operated by another rescue in WA has officially been closed and what equipment was there has been removed. This is the ONLY PLACE where the trappers can drop off severely injured or ill foals so they have a chance for immediate and urgent care. “Mama Mel” is the one who lets us live for months on end in her driveway, and it was her place the babies were dropped at when there were life threatening emergencies”. She is the one who received the orphaned foals day or night and would take care of the ones needing critical care until we could get up there. Chilly Pepper has always taken the severely injured, critically ill and newborn foals, but as of now there is no place for them to be cared for in the meantime. I received a call that there are babies coming in and we need to have a place for them now!

These babies are run up to 100 miles in 100+ degree weather, often time left in the traps for 48 hours with no food or water, can have life threatening injuries and are then left by the other rescue for up to 2 days or more before they are picked up and driven 4? hours. They are then put into a large round pen where it takes additional time (days or more) to be caught and sorted. This is NOT ACCEPTABLE.

We need to set up at Mel’s again, and her place will be a satellite of Chilly Pepper as we already spend months out of the year their rescuing these orphans anyway. We have more babies waiting for us (and adults too) at this moment.

MANY OF THE INJURIES ARE FROM THE BARB WIRE TRAPS. I was horrified to find out that they are not pens using barb wire fencing, it is barb wire strung through the trees and bushes where the horses cannot see it and run straight into or through it. We saw many of these injuries and they need IMMEDIATE TREATMENT! Tetanus can set in quickly, and it can be life threatening.

Thankfully MOST OF THE TRAPPERS DO NOT USE this method, but unfortunately a few do, and we saw many injuries with these last foals.

URGENT SITUATION #2

This is personal, and difficult to share, but it directly affects our rescue. It is not for pity, but just the plain truth so we can continue with our rescue. We need to raise at least $2500 for gates etc. for our place and for doing the foals in WA. I went to the Doc and found out some really horrible news about my leg. Instead of doing my 4th knee replacement and 45th plus?? something surgery, I was told there is basically no hope.

Doc said he can’t believe I am even walking on it, albeit it only sometimes. I use my crutches and my wheelchair as little as possible, but I have been ordered to wear a brace and use a cane every single day, if I want to have a chance of staying mobile. (I have seen specialists from one end of the country to the other, but I did have a tiny bit of hope that there might be some help.)

My leg feels like it will break again, just like it did before I took that fateful step and my femur snapped in half. Basically my knee and entire leg is on beyond borrowed time, so that means I need to make sure I am as safe as possible. That means putting in gates as I am not allowed to climb over panels anymore. Mama Mel was also badly injured this spring when she was climbing over a panel due to a lack of gates. If we are going to continue doing this work, we HAVE to make sure we are as careful as humanly possible.

What is really scary is that one wrong step could be the end of my leg, or it would be much worse, and with my nerve disease it could mean no prosthetic. I do this work on crutches a lot of the time, but the Doc is extremely worried about what is going to happen and would like it if I stopped doing what I have to do every day to take care of these kids.

I told him I want to ride my horse and he basically said I have nothing to lose. Apparently the danger of me getting “broken” walking is no less than falling off my horse. Of course I was feeling all sorry for myself (now I have to cut my boots because of my dumb brace), and immediately saw people who made me so ashamed. So I am going to put on my Big Girl Panties and do what we do, although very carefully, and appreciate all the blessings that God has given us.

So the choice is to stop rescuing these horses, or do it better in a much safer manner as long as I can. Something as simple as having enough money to buy gates can literally make the difference between our rescue surviving and saving more lives, or for me to end up in the hospital and my wheel chair permanently.

Sorry for the long post, but we absolutely HAVE to get the new nursery up and running immediately, and I had to be honest about the possibility of things changing at our rescue. (And y’all know I would be out there in my wheel chair LOL, but it would so not be as effective as what we do now.)

PLEASE HELP NOW – 46 HORSES (SOME BADLY INJURED) NEED YOUR HELP NOW FOR MILK MONEY 12 MORE BABIES EXPECTED

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Although it looks like the same horses, look at the fencing and you can tell it is not the same kids. * *

Wow, This is one of the craziest rescues we have ever been on. Please remember, the Chilly Pepper “organization” consists of just myself and Matt assisting. One of the reasons why my Thank You notes are always late. :(

We are really struggling on this rescue, as there has been a great deal of loss and we are literally sitting on so many horses.

We do this because God puts it in front of us, and for the folks who can’t do it themselves, and who are always asking us to save the horses. BUT WE SIMPLY CANNOT DO IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP. We will do the work if we have the funds.

We do not have enough funds right now to keep buying this much feed and save the new kids that we were called about yesterday. There are more to be paid for, vetted and gotten to safety as I type this.

The horses would have all been moved within the next couple of days if things had gone according to our plan. However, although I don’t always understand God’s plans, I do ALWAYS TRUST that there is a reason. (Boy would I like to know what it is lol). Because our plans to have them all out of here and be back home went right out the window due to a paperwork issue.

Out of the 46 horses, there are 30+ orphaned babies who were still nursing and need milk. Luckily some of them will be transitioning over to pellets which are not quite as expensive. These kids are in rough shape, and full of parasites and just exhausted. They NEED GOOD GROCERIES to get them back to where they should be.

We have been dealing with a lot of injuries, and sadly have seen more loss of life than anyone should ever see. The heartbreak just keeps on coming. We have 4 in the “hospital pen” who are in extremely rough shape at this point and who require expensive medication and constant care.

Milk for ONE BABY is about $300 per month. We are currently going through that much EVERY SINGLE DAY – , and this is not including the additional milk pellets, grain, hay or supplements etc. There are MORE BABIES needing a commitment today, and not all of the babies here have been paid for, so the “floaters” in all reality still belong to the catcher.

It is heartbreaking and overwhelming. Everyone here is exhausted and there is no choice but to just “git ‘er done”. How do you look in their eyes and not help? This is why we are their voice and ask you for help to save their lives.

We never could have guessed we would be stuck here with so many horses to feed, and these babies need your help today. It is simply out of our control. We have not gotten “clean paperwork” so we are simply stuck. Hopefully the issue will be resolved tomorrow, but for now we have to feed everyone that has been saved. (We still have to have someone feeding and caring for the horses at home every single day we are here.)

Out of the 46, 14 are heading to Texas, 3 mares & foals are headed to CA, 2 or 3 should be going to Wyoming and 2 are tentatively scheduled for Utah. Thankfully the other 5 mares and 2 of the yearlings are headed to southern Idaho. We have so many amazing folks willing to help place them, ONCE we have paid for all the initial costs. So again, we are not ‘hoarding”, but saving their lives and getting them to safety. The stallion and 15? orphans will be coming to Chilly Pepper until we find them a good home.

Please keep these babies safe. Step one was getting them here. But now we have to actually feed and take care of them. Thank you for taking a quick minute and sending whatever you can. These kids have been through heck. They were run for 100 +/- miles, left in the trap with no feed or water for 24-48 hours, and then they were stripped away from their families. It is heartbreaking listening to them cry for their mama’s. We need to AT LEAST be able to provide proper feed for them.

So the babies are counting on you once again. Thank you for your help!

: ANOTHER 911 – CHILLY PEPPER – STARTING JULY WITH ANOTHER ORPHAN FOAL EMERGENCY! PLEASE ACT NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER DAY – ANOTHER URGENT 911. It sounds so dramatic, but when you are on the front lines and the only thing standing between these babies and a horrific death, or worse yet, a future as a “tripping horse“, it is ALWAYS an immediate need and the choice is life or death.

I hate to use the word DESPERATE, but this situation is just that. We had over 50 babies between the other rescue and Chilly Pepper, and we took on 35 of those babies. Unfortunately, we are still going through nearly $300 per day of milk for the ones we still have between the 2 rescues. We did get 21 placed in Idaho, so that helped tremendously.

THERE ARE MORE BABIES WE NEED TO SAVE TODAY!! Not all of the babies already here have been paid for, and I am picking up at the Shipper’s today and possibly from another catcher.

We are in ORPHAN FOAL CRISIS and these babies NEED MONEY TO SAVE THEM, VET THEM AND FEED THEM or we simply will not be able to save them.

Many of them have serious injuries, and we have already had some tragic losses. This is heartbreaking, but we will keep saving as many as we can, as long as we have the funding. So it is up to y’all, do we keep saving more? We are still in WA and they just keep coming….

So far we have spent $2,731 to get Coggins and health Certs on the 35, plus do some needed medical procedures. There are additional vet costs too.

We spent approx $3000 to save the 35 and another mare and the stallion,
We spent $700 (so far) on medical supplies we are using to treat these babies.
We spent another $900 on milk which will only last a few days as we are feeding close to $300 worth of milk each day between the remaining 30+ babies here. (That includes the babies that have not been paid for and are “floating”). (One bag of Foal Lac Powder lasts approx. 2 weeks for 1 baby).

So over $7300 just in those couple items. This does not include fuel, hay, supplements etc. the list goes on, BUT I WANTED Y’ALL TO SEE WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES!

WE SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO SAVE THE REST OF THESE BABIES THAT ARE BEING SORTED TODAY!

IF ya’ll want their lives saved, it is up to you. Again, Matt and I will continue the 24/7 care and keep on keepin’ on, but it is going to take some serious funds. Y’all DID IT FOR THE LAST 35, so let’s DO IT AGAIN!!

PLEASE HELP RIGHT NOW!

The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue:

June 23, 2018

Ears the news…

Well, May certainly flew right by! Thank you to all who attended our Open House. We had a great day weather wise and had a great turn out. It was wonderful to see old friends and to make new ones. The adoption of two donkeys resulted from the day! Our friends Jessica, Larkin, Emerson, and Nicole from Empowered Equestrians did their usual FABULOUS job of introducing people to the joys and power of training using positive reinforcement.

It’s hard to believe that we are more than half way through June already. It seems like little Sassy was just born but she is on her way to her three month birthday. She gets cuter and sassier by the day. I am surprised that she and her mom have not yet been adopted. They will make a great addition to someone’s barn yard.

Sassy

We have a lot of animals available for adoption right now. Having bonded pairs makes it more difficult to place animals but we do what is best for the animals and a singleton donkey is not a happy camper. Donkeys need another donkey as a buddy for their behavioral and social needs to be properly met. For that reason we only adopt out donkeys in pairs unless it is to a home that already has a donkey. Yes, many donkeys live with goats or horses as companions, but there are published studies validating the fact that when given the choice donkeys will choose another donkey as their companion.

We also do not adopt out donkeys to be used as guardians. I get a lot of “yeah buts” on this one. Yes, sometimes it can work with the larger donkeys. Most often it does not. I once took in a donkey jennet that had been a guardian to a herd of goats for 17 years. She was with the kids when they were born every year. The year I took her in she had killed all the kids that were born that season. Why? Who knows? I have heard stories like this repeatedly and have taken in other donkeys due to similar, though not on such a large scale, situations. Thinking of using a mini donkey as a protector is just silly. I have seen donkeys horribly wounded by a single dog.   Those of you who know me, know that I will always do what is best for the animals in my care. If some folks don’t like my rules, or me for enforcing them, I’m ok with that.

I would like to officially welcome Meg Dionne to “Team SYA”. Meg does an unbelievable job of cleaning up after these manure making animals. When she is done cleaning a paddock it looks as if it has been vacuumed!!! She is awesome, has a wonderful sense of humor and if I dare say, is just a bubble off plumb, so she fits in perfectly! We love her!

I would be remiss if I did not mention how thankful I am to Mike Dunham, Annie Kellam, Andria Elliot, and of course my right hand gal Hannah. I could not do this without them. I am also, as always, deeply grateful to those who donate so generously to make sure we are able to give the best possible care to the donkeys and mules we take in to the rescue.

Get outside. Hug your long ears, and enjoy these lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer!

ChEARS,

Ann

President & Shelter Manager
