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!

MY HEART IS SHATTERED – RIP MY BEAUTIFUL MIRACLE GIRL – & OF COURSE ANOTHER CALL 12 MORE BABIES & ACTIVELY ON STAND BY FOR MORE

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Since my last update, including this little angel, y’all saved 12 babies lives!!!!!**

AS ALWAYS, the calls KEEP COMING! The new number is 12, YES – ANOTHER 12, and I am currently on standby for babies from 2 other catchers. So most likely by the time vetting would come, I will be even more buried.

DO I tell him yes?

Their Mom’s and Dad’s literally just loaded onto a slaughter truck, and I need to be able to say YES to all of them!!

This will put Vetting, coggins and paperwork in the multiple thousands.

DO WE, our CHILLY PEPPER FAMILY – SAVE THEM??? I cannot do this without raising funds to pay for them, feed them, etc. etc.

I honestly would rather crawl into a hole and not talk to anyone or see anyone. I lost my beautiful “Little Miracle Girl”. It hurts so much and it is like she literally climbed into my soul. She certainly crawled physically into me..

More heartbreak – I simply do not have words that will do this beautiful girl justice. She survived predators, ie bears, cougars, coyotes and a harsh environment with little feed and water. Her whole life must have been excruciating, except for the last 4 days she was with me. Thankfully she had pain meds and oh so much love.

All she wanted was to be in my lap. She literally would try to crawl into me and was ALWAYS nuzzling my knee. It was as if she knew that we shared the same excruciating type of pain, although hers had to be worse. She was a completely wild filly on Sunday and could kick like a pro. We bonded the second our eyes met. It sounds funny, but if you look at her in the pictures it is like we were together forever.

Sadly, when the vet took x-rays BOTH of her joints had huge broken pieces of bone floating around. It had to be beyond excruciating. Add that to her pneumonia and swollen joints (which ended up being septic), her life could hardly have been more painful. I was so not expecting this. Her pneumonia was a thousand times better, and she wanted life so badly.

It was an excruciating decision, but the ONLY RIGHT DECISION FOR HER.

All I can do is crawl out of my hole and save the next 12 in her honor. My beautiful girl took so much of my heart with her. THANK YOU EVERYONE who gave her a chance. She had the heart of a lion and if we didn’t have the bone chips we could have at least fought longer. At least if you look at her photo’s it is obvious how loved she felt and at peace, knowing she was being helped. I treasure every second I had with her, but now I have to fight for the new ones to honor her spirit.

STARVING & BADLY INJURED MARE, ANOTHER 911 AS BABIES ARE AT THE SHIPPER’S. NO TIME TO GRIEVE OR EVEN BREATHE – THEY NEED US NOW!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Wow – the calls just won’t stop. I’ve been home all of 3 days, and this injured and starving mare was today’s 911We have to save her. She is super sweet and can hardly walk and is obviously starving. She wouldn’t even make the trip to slaughter and would be trampled in the truck. That can’t happen.

Shipper called and the babies below are in the trailerMom’s and families have been loaded and are on their way to slaughterWe have to take these babies – they have no where else to go.

Sadly, the beautiful Granny passed away last night due to the head injuries inflicted on her at the same time they destroyed her lip. Our hearts are broken but there is not even a moment to grieve, or even breathe. At least she is out of pain and was surrounded by love for her last few days.

I can only imagine what the numbers will be by the time I actually get there to pick them up. For now, Mama Mel will be taking care of the babies and I need to call tonight and let them know if we can take Reba, (the starving/injured mare).

Our vet bills were just a few dollars shy of $5,000 for this last rescue, (before I even got home). Sweet Sally, the donkey, needs more x-rays. Samantha, (the little mini) needs her eye either repaired or removed. The stallions need to be gelded and the kids with Cushings need more meds. The list goes on and on.

I know the world has turned upside down, but my life didn’t really change. I keep getting calls and as long as y’all keep helping and want to save these lives, I will keep on fighting. This is beyond exhausting, but if you look at that worried face on Reba, well it is almost as if she knows something bad is coming. Let’s make sure only good comes to her for the rest of her life.

THANK YOU, ALL OF YOU, who are making a difference whether it is from sharing, caring and praying, or donating. Together we can keep saving them. Off to feed and give meds.

Someone take a nap for me please. LOL

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.

Trump’s BLM Director nomination could spell disaster for wild horses

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

News & Alerts

President Trump has nominated the fox to guard the henhouse.

Last Friday, Trump announced his plan to move forward with his nomination of Acting Director William Perry Pendley to Director of the Bureau of Land Management.

Let’s take a look at why this poses the greatest threat to our wild horses and burros in decades:

  • Pendley has said that wild horses were the “biggest existential threat” to public lands, even though horses only live on approximately 12% of BLM lands.
  • He has falsely claimed that managing wild horses non-lethally would require more than $5 billion.
  • Pendley’s career to date has been spent fighting to sell off public lands to private industry. While at the BLM, Pendley has stepped up efforts to undermine environmental laws like the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the National Environmental Policy Act, which protects public lands from unrestricted oil and gas development, mining operations and livestock grazing.
  • Recently, under Pendley, the BLM delivered to Congress a billion-dollar plan to cull federally protected wild horse and burro herds by 70% by rounding up 80,000 mustangs and burros from public lands over the next five years.

It’s pretty clear where Pendley’s interests are vested and it’s NOT with our public lands and wild horses:


Pendley knows exactly what he’s doing. By putting an outrageously high price tag on humane management of wild horses and burros, he’s laying the groundwork to make the case that non-lethal management of wild horses is too expensive and that slaughter is the only option. We can’t let this happen. Join us in telling Congress to say NO to confirming Pendley as Director of the BLM.
TELL THE SENATE ENERGY AND NATURAL RESOURCES COMMITTEE: REJECT PENDLEY AS BLM DIRECTOR.
 

 

SIGN our petition telling Congress and the BLM that you won’t stand for Trump’s nomination of Pendley, and the dire threat he poses to our wild horses.
 

Acting Director Pendley is peddling a profit-motivated attack campaign against wild horses — but we see through his lies. Not only is he advocating for the mass removal and sterilization of horses, he’s actively defending — and has spent his career in the pockets of — the real threats to our public lands:

Wild horses are facing one of the biggest threats in a lifetime, and we need to do everything we can to keep them safe and wild. Pendley has initiated a propaganda campaign against wild horses, which includes creating a fake crisis in order to convince Congress that non-lethal management of wild horses is too expensive. For this reason, we are asking you to take action today to protect wild horses from Pendley’s grips.

Thank you for taking action today to keep our wild horses safe and free.

American Wild Horse Campaign

PS — As William Pendley’s confirmation process rolls ahead, the agency he heads is charging ahead with its unprecedented summer assault against our beloved wild horses and burros. Beginning today, BLM helicopters will descend on remote regions of the West to stampede and capture 5,000 federally-protected wild horses and burros by September 30.

Our team is all hands on deck to fight back all summer long against this assault — with volunteers in the field, with lawsuits, with every advocacy tool at our disposal — but to do this, we need your help. Will you pitch in to our Roundup Fund today?

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!!

URGENT CALL – CLOCK IS TICKING! ELDERLY MULE 911 WE HAVE ONE CHANCE TO KEEP THIS SWEET OLD MULE FROM GOING TO SLAUGHTER!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

The calls keep coming. Another 911, another life to save!

An urgent call to save this precious life“GRANDPA GUS” is so sad and confused. He doesn’t understand what is happening to him. Look at his sad little face.

PLEASE DONATE so we can save his life. This is time sensitive and extremely urgent. I just couldn’t bear to let him ship, so I took another leap of faith. I KNOW our Chilly Pepper family will come together to save him.

In April alone, Y’ALL HAVE SAVED 41 BABIES AND 3 ADULTS, including a gorgeous stallion shown below, and two mares, one of them a pregnant mare and the other a “gelding” who actually is a mare. So 3 adult lives and 41 babies. You ARE making a huge difference. It took a lot of funding, but y’all came through!

Today, let’s change the WHOLE WORLD FOR “GRANDPA GUS”!! He does not deserve to ship to slaughter. We are the only ones who can save him now. Please help if you can and share far and wide!

Standing by for the trappers (as usual). However, it was wonderful to be able to save the additional adults due to the fact the horses escaped the trap last week.

This gorgeous stallion (shown below) is now living in Oregon with a wonderful woman who has years of experience with the wild ones, including stallions. Y’ALL SAVED HIM!!

Most all the babies out of the first groups have been adopted, thanks to an amazing group of women.

But TODAY, WE NEED TO SAVE “GRANDPA GUS”! Remember, the clock is ticking.

THANK YOU to everyone who donated to save April’s horses. It meant everything to each and every one of them who were given a chance to be saved.

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!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis.

Thank you so much for your love and support. Your donations make it possible to keep on doing our work, even in the midst of the Pandemic. Sadly, (but understandably), as the Pandemic increases, folks doing rescue are all seeing their budgets decreasing. So we want to send out an extra special THANK YOU to you for helping us keep saving lives.

Sadly, the slaughter trucks have not missed a beat, and are still continuing to roll.

BRUISER UPDATE! PTL!! Our beautiful little boy had something in that beautiful head click. I think his wires all came together. He is now drinking his milk without issue. I no longer have to give him 2 shots a day, and he is rocking his little world. Obviously he could still crash, but it appears to be much less likely than before – woohooo!!!

THANK YOU FROM BRUISER – for hanging in there and never giving up!

Sending prayers for all of y’all out there.

We also have great news about the little baby we had at the feedlot. Little Lona was transferred to Mama Mel’s, and then picked up by Bev Boshart. She is one of our amazing Chilly Pepper Family, and her rescue has taken 2 foals last year and hooked them up with a Mama and she took on the one we just rescued. Yes, she did it again. Lona now has her own horsey Mama. We are so grateful to Bev for all she does. It’s Teamwork that makes the Dream work!

Please stay safe out there and keep us in your prayers. Rescue never stops. Even though the funding has slowed down, we have not. So THANK YOU AGAIN for your wonderful donations.

Destiny is doing well. The clay is working and her wound is healing wonderfully!

I understand many folks are in financial crisis. If you are not in a position to safely donate, please just share this information.

Below, Bruiser feeling good! LuLu is also doing great and getting chubby, lol.

A hard-earned VICTORY for the Devil’s Garden Wild Horses

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Many of us have more time on our hands these days and we wanted to give you some important news and provide some interactive materials about wild horses that you and your family can utilize while staying at home.


A Hard-Earned Victory for California’s Devil’s Garden Wild Horses


Back in 2018, AWHC joined forces with the Animal Legal Defense Fund and California local advocate Carla Bowers to file a lawsuit to stop the U.S. Forest Service from selling California wild horses for slaughter. The horses in question were captured in fall 2018 from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory in northeast California’s Modoc National Forest.

We’re pleased to report that this litigation blocked the Forest Service from selling the Devil’s Garden wild horses for slaughter, giving Congress time to act.

In December, after U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, 66 members of Congress, and 22 members of the California State Legislature joined the public in opposing the slaughter plan, Congress passed legislation to prohibit the Forest Service from destroying healthy horses and selling them without limitation on slaughter.

This is the same prohibition that Congress has long imposed on the Bureau of Land Management. We’re grateful to all the AWHC supporters who donated to support our litigation, which played a critical role in securing this prohibition on slaughter of wild horses and burros under U.S. Forest Service jurisdiction.


But, the Devil’s Garden Wild Horses Still Aren’t Safe Yet (Action Alert)


In fall of 2019, the Forest Service rounded up and removed 499 more wild horses from the Devil’s Garden Wild Horse Territory. The majority of the horses have been adopted or sold, some, disturbingly, for $1 a piece. Approximately 100 wild horses — including older horses, pregnant mares and foals — remain in corrals in the Modoc National Forest.

Unlike the BLM, which has halted sales and adoptions of horses and burros during the COVID-19 crisis, the Forest Service continues to dispose of these federally-protected animals for $1 a piece. Worse, a single buyer can purchase 24 horses at a time, and the government will transport them for free, including to states as far away as Arkansas and Florida!

The Forest Service has no adequate system for vetting potential buyers or following up after horses are purchased to ensure their welfare.

By selling horses in bulk for $1 a piece and shipping them for free across the country with no safeguards to protect them from abuse and slaughter, the Forest Service is creating an avenue to sidestep Congress’ slaughter ban.

Please help us demand accountability and oversight to protect the cherished Devil’s Garden wild horses … weigh in today!


Got Questions? We Want To Answer Them!


We’ll be the first to say it: It can be difficult to stay up to speed with the complex issues affecting our nation’s wild horses and burros. With so many federal agencies, acronyms and applicable laws, it’s easy to get confused.

That’s why we’re going to break it down for you on Thursday, April 16, with the launch of our ‘Wild Horses 101’ webinar series.

We want this to be an interactive experience! Which is why we’re encouraging you to submit questions so we can address them as we tackle some of the most important topics.

Our first segment will go over the history of wild horses and how we arrived at the place we are now. We hope you’ll tune in.


And Finally, A Fun Activity For The Kids At Home


We know that many of you are juggling a number of responsibilities at home, and for those with young kids, we’re offering a way to keep them entertained!

We took a bit of inspiration from Velma Johnston, aka “Wild Horse Annie,” who was the influential wild horse advocate responsible for some of the most important wild horse protections on the books. As part of her campaign to save America’s mustangs, she organized a wildly successful children’s writing brigade that generated national support for mustangs and led to the passage of the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act.

AWHC hopes to harness that spirit again by getting kids involved in the fight to save our mustangs. A great place to start is with our official children’s activity book: it’s available completely for free and includes coloring pages, a word search, and writing prompts!

That’s our news for the week… our best wishes to you and your loved ones during this difficult time.

NEWBORN BABY(S) AT THE SHIPPER – SEVERELY INJURED MARE – CAN WE KEEP HER OFF THE SLAUGHTER TRUCK?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis.

MEET “DESTINY” – As you can see, she has quite the injury and needs vet care as soon as possible. If she cannot be fixed, we would give her a peaceful ending. However, I am hopeful that with lots of TLC we can save her.

URGENT – RECEIVED A PHONE CALL TODAY FOR A NEWBORN (Not sure how many) ON THE FEED LOT. Thankfully, (if you can find anything to be thankful about in these situations) baby gets to stay with Mama for a few more days. When Mama ships, we will need to be there. (I DO NOT have an option to save Mama). It is beyond heartbreaking, but we have to focus on the ones we can save.

SEVERELY INJURED MARE – DESTINY – This mare’s injury is in such a place it may be extremely hard for it to heal. At the very least she needs to be kept off the slaughter truck. WE ARE HER ONLY CHANCE! If you blow up the photo you can see how big her gash is, and that she already has swelling in her tummy. She needs help asap.

I have a vet scheduled for Monday to see if she can help her. (Can’t get her until we raise the funds to save and vet her.) We are also doing Coggins, Health Certs etc. on the other kids. Out of 4 TB colts, only one was healthy. Sadly, our beautiful little buckskin passed during the night. I was told she was eating and drinking but not feeling well, and this morning when they went out to feed she had passed. We have a huge hernia to repair, a big gouge in the chest of one of the colts, and a severely swollen hock on another one.

All of these horses were considered to have no value. They were all “thrown away”. Let’s give them the chance they deserve.

Can you imagine that mare being pushed around in the crowded slaughter truck? Her wound getting bigger and bigger Let’s save her from a horrific trailer ride and imminent slaughter.

I understand many folks are in financial crisis. If you are not in a position to safely donate, please just share this information.

Below, Bruiser and LuLu, enjoying their cuddle time.

SLAUGHTER TRUCKS ARE ROLLING – AN EMERGENCY CALL TO SAVE 6 (POSSIBLY MORE) PRECIOUS LIVES!

2

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi everyone. 1st and foremost, I hope and pray everyone is hanging in there during this time of crisis.

SADLY however, the slaughter trucks CONTINUE TO ROLL! I received a call to see if we can save these 6 beautiful souls from slaughter. We are their only chance as they will not be heading to an auction, simply loaded on a trailer and shipped to their death.

We are working with a local rescue who will be working along side us to help us try and get these kids placed locally.

I have a potential adoption for the shaggy little buckskin and for the 2 year old mare. However, none of them are safe as of right now and they need your help. We will save as many of them as we can, based on our ability to “save them”, get them vetted, transported and have appropriate funds to make sure they are fed and cared for properly. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ME STAND IN FRONT OF THEM AND PICK AND CHOOSE WHO GETS TO LIVE! That is the worst feeling.

I truly understand so many folks have lost their income and things seem really sketchy right now. Please if you are in that situation just say a big prayer for these kids.

When God puts these kids in front of us I know He expects us to try and save them. We can only do our best, but it is so not fair for them to be slaughtered because I didn’t try.

SO, IF you are in a position to donate or possibly adopt a yearling thoroughbred colt, please do so. Please share this far and wide as it will be a true miracle if we can pull this off under the circumstances.

We need BAIL, TEMPORARY LODGING, HAULING AND VETTING FUNDS, not to mention feed etc. If by some miracle we can save them and there is any money left over, it will go for milk money, hay, feed, vetting etc. for the kids here.

Bruiser is really enjoying his milk and says THANK YOU for saving him.

PEPE’s 1st surgery went well, and after his checkup the vet feels she has a chance to “finish” closing the rest of the tear in his upper throat. So one more surgery and (God Willing) he will be a happy little camper.

You have saved so many lives. Let’s keep on making a difference and saving lives!

Hugs & Love
Palomino

A better way

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

This past December, Congress authorized a 25% budgetary increase for the Bureau of Land Management’s badly broken Wild Horse and Burro program. Now the Administration is asking Congress to approve an additional 15% budget increase for the program two months later, as the BLM prepares to massively accelerate the roundup and removal of tens of thousands of wild horses.

What’s At Stake

As many of you know, the Acting Director of the BLM referred to wild horses and burros as an “existential threat” to public lands and is planning to use the Bureau’s funds to round up wild horses and burros in unprecedented numbers, with as many as 20,000 at risk of being removed this year alone.

We cannot stress this enough: We are talking about the greatest threat to wild horses in decades.

It is critical to remember that the BLM is not considering reducing the number of privately owned livestock in these areas. This despite the fact that these animals vastly outnumber horses and burros on public land and cost taxpayers as much as $500 million in subsidies for the below market grazing fees that public lands ranchers pay.

For reference, there are anywhere from 700,000 to 1,000,000 cow/calf pairs on public lands compared to the 88,000 federally-protected wild horses and burros (who share this land with the livestock).

Make no mistake about it, this isn’t a coincidence either — It’s the result of intense lobbying on behalf of the livestock industry.

Bad Policy And A Broken Program

The BLM continues to impose extreme limits on wild horse population numbers on public lands throughout the West that have no basis in science and their method of calculating these limits is not transparent to the public nor wildlife researchers and experts.

Additionally, the BLM is also championing the use of inhumane and ineffective population growth suppression methods that focus on the castration of wild stallions and the risky, cruel, and invasive surgical practice known as ovariectomy, whereby a mare’s ovaries are manually severed and removed in an invasive and outdated surgical procedure.

The National Academy of Sciences warned against BLM’s use of ovariectomies on wild mares due to risk of hemorrhage and infection. Castrating stallions would cause loss of testosterone which drives the natural behaviors necessary to maintain social organization and survive in the wild.

BLM is not only charging ahead with surgical sterilization, but the budget indicates that the agency intends to use the appropriations process to amend the Wild Horse and Burro Act to explicitly authorize these surgeries.

It’s also critically important to remember that the vast majority of Americans, of all political backgrounds, are opposed to mass roundups and these surgical procedures.

Another Way to Dump Horses?

While the President’s budget does recognize that the slaughter of America’s wild horses and burros is unacceptable to Congress and the public, we have grave concerns about the request for legislative language to expand the transfer authority of wild horses and burros to tribal entities.

AWHC sees this as another way for the agency to take steps to reduce numbers of wild horses through policies that make it easier to move horses out of holding, strip them of their federal-protection and send them to destinations where their welfare will be impossible to ensure.

A Better Way

Here at AWHC, we’re proving that there is a humane and cost-effective way to keep wild horses and burros on public lands and end the roundup and warehousing of these wild animals in holding pens.

On the Virginia Range in Nevada, our team is operating the world’s largest humane management program of wild horses and burros.

By utilizing a very affordable vaccine, known as PZP, our team has treated more mares in 10 months than the BLM did last year. And each vaccine costs as little as $30 per year.

The President’s budget request is just that: a request. This means we have the chance to work with leaders in Congress to oversee the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program, demand the BLM abandon the practices that are not supported by science or the American public, as well as promote effective and safe alternatives that our team has demonstrated work.

Over the last three years, working together, we’ve beat back multiple attempts to legalize the slaughter of wild horses and burros by convincing Congress that the American people will not stand for this lethal and brutally inhumane option. Together, we can meet this newest and most serious threat to the future of America’s wild herds.

Wild horses and burros don’t have a voice. When you donate to AWHC, you give these precious animals more than a voice — You give them a fighting chance. That’s why I’m asking if you will make your first donation of 2020.

Thank you,

ORPHAN 911 – IT’S BABY TIME – EMERGENCY SUPPLIES NEEDED NOW – BABIES DROPPING – IT’S GO TIME

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

It’s GO TIME AGAIN. 911 for baby supplies. We are already getting calls to be on stand by for the orphaned and new born foals.

As we never had a break all year, our baby supplies have dwindled and these are the lifesaving supplies we need. Thankfully Chilly Pepper has folks stepping up to help with the care of these orphaned babies, as well as pregnant mares, stallions and any other horses we can save from slaughter. CHILLY PEPPER is still incurring all expenses for our babies and horses.

OUR current emergency is being prepared for that phone call. These babies need IMMEDIATE care to have a chance at surviving in this harsh world. Many of these babies will come from Mares that have been shipped to slaughter. Others will be orphaned by deaths caused by vehicles and then there are the ones who are injured or too ill to survive alone.

Thankfully we have 3 other locations where folks will step up and help us do the actual care for these babies. TEAMWORK IS THE REASON FOR THE DREAM WORKING!

(The MOST BABIES we have gotten at once was (70 BABIES IN 2 DAYS). This was from ONE trapper in 2 days.) So we have to be ready at all locations.

WE NEED TO ORDER SUPPLIES ASAP.

Foal Lac Powder – 40# bags – $150 32 Bags (just a start) $ 4,800

▪ (This would supply milk needed for 16 babies for one month). It is a drop in the bucket, but a good start.) This is only for the milk.

▪ (This would supply milk needed for 16 babies for one month). It is a drop in the bucket, but a good start.) This is only for the milk.

Probios 4 – @ $47.99 (Valley Vet) Estimate w/o shipping $ 200

Foal Response 16 @ $12.49 Estimate w/o shipping $ 200

Equine Coli Endotox 16 @ $36.09 ” $ 578

New thermometers 4 @ $30 ” $ 120

IGG (Colostrum replacer) 20 bottles @ $105.95 $ 2,120

These are the absolute basics we use with every neonatal foal. We need more panels, shavings, meds, and the list goes on. The above is the bare minimum to be prepared for the normal neonatal babies we can expect at the beginning of the year.

These are the life saving supplies that we HAVE TO HAVE to provide the best possible chance for these babies to survive.

Please donate if you can. You can also purchase items directly and mail them to Chilly Pepper, 12965 Green Saddle Drive, # 233, Golconda, NV 89414.

We also need baby wipes, vaseline, Biosponge, vet wrap, gauze, scalpels, needles, syringes, baby blankets, gloves, and the list goes on. Saving these babies is not cheap, but it is the least we can do for them, especially the ones whose Mom’s have been shipped to slaughter.

Another urgent 911 call. An older, WILD & PREGNANT MUSTANG is in the kill pen, and if we don’t get her, she has no other option. She and her unborn baby do not deserve to ship to slaughter.

We need to save her now! Her time has run out and we need to raise funds for vetting, transport, etc. so we can commit to saving her life.

If we do not step up, this girl has no where to go. At this point I have not seen her, but that is not important. God put her in front of us and we need to save both of their lives. Time is of the essence and her clock is running out.

_As usual, there is never time to grieve the loss of our beautiful babies. sadly, we found out that Dandelion was born with a deadly birth defect. _

Although our beautiful Dandelion was all healed up from her coyote attack and ready to head out to her “new Moms”, she had a birth defect that ultimately was a death sentence. Thankfully she did not die a horrible death out on the range, but was surrounded by those she loved and her “mama”.,

As always, the phone rings and we received another 911. This mare and her unborn baby now have a chance, and that is YOU!. We need a “happy”. PLEASE HELP US SAVE THIS MOM AND BABY NOW!

I am honestly exhausted and my heart is in a million pieces. But that does not give me an excuse to not step up and try and save this Mama and unborn Baby. I may still need to grieve my beloved Christmas & Dandelion, but we don’t need to add more heartbreak by letting this Mama and baby ship.

On another note, the Belgian “Texas Triumph” is hanging in there. I was warned that I may go out and find he has aspirated and gotten pneumonia, or I might find him “choking” as he has what appears to be permanent damage to his throat. Both vets have warned me about the low chances he has for a long life, but we will love him and care for him as long as we can.

So we had two cases from opposite ends of the spectrum, both involving a damaged esophagus. With neither one being a candidate for surgery, it means we pray hard and keep feeding Texas Triumph his mash. At this point aside from his string halt and eating issues, he is a wonderful and very happy boy!
