The following is an update from Chilly Pepper-Miracle Mustang on the ISPMB horses.
First, THANK YOU so much for helping us save these horses. As you can clearly see, they were desperately in need of immediate veterinary and farrier care. Thanks to everyone who has been so loving and generous, these 9 horses from ISPMB are looking at wonderful lives with loving folks.
Matt and I are packing up and we will be delivering the last 5 to their new homes today. Unfortunately we have to drive about 1,000 miles one way to do this. As usual, we need serious help to get these kids to their new homes. Folks often ask why the “adopters” are not paying for transport. These are simply wonderful folks who are willing to take on the huge expenses of rehabbing these beautiful souls and making sure they are cared for the next 30 years. So we are thankful they will take on that huge mission and are praying that y’all will continue your wonderful support so we can get them there.

I spoke with Karen yesterday and she told me the Sheriff will be taking control on the 11th. This means that there are nearly 800 horses needing homes in the next 3 weeks or they will end up at auction (slaughter).
What we have done TOGETHER is amazing. It doesn’t sound like so much, only 9 out of over 800, but if 100 other people stepped up and did what YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE, ALL the horses would be saved. So Y’ALL have made a huge difference.
I understand y’all are probably tired of me asking for funding. I absolutely hate having to fund raise, but please remember this is not for me, it is for the horses and I know so many folks want to be part of saving all these lives even if they can’t do it hands on, but do it via financial support. We never want folks to give more than they are comfortable giving, but although I gladly spend 24/7 doing this, it takes a village. My time is all volunteer, and I do this because I truly believe God is putting this in front of me and am so grateful YOU all make it possible.
Unfortunately the budget at Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang has been severely trampled on. The last vet bill was about $1500 including the trimming and gelding. Our vet is amazing and gave us every break she could and Twizzle is actually a filly so that also helped.
We appreciate and thank you with every fiber of our being for the help, but this is a crisis, and for some reason God put it in front of us. We have been asked by the Sheriff and several other folks, including Karen, to be there asap.
So as soon as we deliver these beautiful babies the 1000 miles, we have to jump back in the truck and go 1500 miles up to South Dakota. This is a lot of traveling and to be honest, not my preference. At this time, I know of only 4 other trailers that are expected to show up. But God definitely placed the ISPBM situation in front of us and we will do our best to help in any way we can.
Again, THANK YOU for all you have saved, but we are in desperate need of more help to save more of these horses. IF you are interested in adopting any of these beautiful horses, please contact us asap at 530-339-1458.
