  • Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang Matching Fund Challenge

    0

    The folks over at Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang Rescue have been given a matching fund challenge by a supporter to purchase land for the rescue. 

    Chilly Pepper Land Challenge

    We just received GREAT NEWS from one of our Angels. We have a wonderful donor who is throwing out this challenge.

    She will purchase an adjoining 3 acre parcel for Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang so we can continue to help save the wild horses. IF, folks will step up and match the $5,000 needed to buy the land, she will “git ‘er done”!

    Her donation of $5,000 will buy the land and the “matching funds” will feed the horse kids through August.

    You can donate  – Please put in the notes “For the Land & Life Support Challenge”. (If you can’t donate, please share far and wide. You can still be part of saving these lives).

    We need a bit over $5,000 for the month of August to feed and care for the 25 horses here in NV and the permanent residents (plus two orphan foals) at our facility in Shingletown.

    We are feeding about $1000 worth of hay in NV for the month (11 adults – 5 of them pregnant mares), one nursing mare with a foal and 14 orphan foals. We have several babies who are spoken for and waiting to go to their new homes, but lots of beautiful babies for adoption.
    Two of the babies are in really rough shape, so they need extra prayers, as well as groceries.
    The average cost for a new foal is about $300 month for milk and feed, and we have 14 of them here in NV. So that is about $4200.

    The good news is that a few of them are older so once they get to a healthy weight their costs won’t be quite as much.

    “Saving them” is just the beginning. Now the real work begins to feed and care for them, get them healthy and find great homes.

    PictureWe so appreciate all the folks who are going the distance to save these horses. We are willing to do the work, but simply don’t have the funds we need without amazing folks like you. THANK YOU!

    One of our mares that is pregnant. She was nursing the foal who belonged to the mare that was shot in the head.

    Knowing we were powerless to save the rest of the band, my heart is breaking, but it means we have to fight that much harder to take care of the ones that we were able to save.
  • Support Humane Mustang Management in Colorado! 

    0

    The following post comes from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

    We do a lot of complaining, and rightly so, because the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) wild horse and burro policies nationally are a disaster! But rays of hope exist, and we must support progress when and where it occurs. Such is the case in Colorado, where BLM is leading the way in community partnerships for humane on-the-range management programs in three herd management areas — Little Book Cliffs, Spring Creek Basin, and Sand Wash Basin.

    On August 4, the BLM will hold a public hearing on the use of motorized equipment for wild horse management in the state. The BLM currently is using less traumatic bait trapping as a priority over helicopter roundups in most Colorado HMAs, and has minimized removals thanks to successful PZP fertility-control programs. Please support these model humane management programs by signing our petition in support of BLM Colorado’s work in these areas. Your signatures will be hand delivered at the meeting by Colorado wild horse advocates with a thank you card to the BLM. Don’t miss this opportunity to take positive action that encourages humane mustang management programs today!

  • USDA Proposes Changes to Horse Protection Act

    0

    AHCThis alert is from the American Horse Council. Read the entire article on their website here.

    Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced proposed changes to the regulations governing enforcement of the Horse Protection Act (HPA). The HPA was passed in 1970 to stop the cruel practice of “soring” horses that was occurring in some sectors of the Tennessee Walking Horse, Racking Horse and Spotted Saddle Horse industry.

    The proposed rule would make several major changes to current HPA regulations with the goal of ending soring.  The AHC is currently reviewing the proposed rule to determine its impact on the horse industry.  After the AHC has had the opportunity to analysis the details of the proposed rule we will follow up with additional information. The AHC Horse Show and Animal Welfare Committees will also be convening to discuss the proposed rule.

    This is a proposed rule only and USDA will be accepting comments until September 26, 2016.  USDA will then have to review all comments and release a final rule.  The proposed rule has been published in the Federal Register and can be viewed here: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2016/07/26/2016-17648/horse-protection-licensing-of-designated-qualified-persons-and-other-amendments

     The AHC opposes soring and continues to strongly support the PAST Act (S. 1121/ HR 3268) that will strengthen the HPA and finally end the soring of Tennessee Walking Horses, Racking Horses and Spotted Saddle Horses.

  • Stop BLM From Hiding Barbaric Experiments

    0

    This Action Alert comes from the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign.

    Photo | Mike Lorden

    These are America’s wild horses. They belong to us. We must be able to see what our government is doing to them and expose this cruelty to the public and Congress in order to STOP IT.

    Just today, attorneys for the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign and The Cloud Foundation sent a letter to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Oregon demanding our First Amendment right to observe and document the gruesome sterilization experiments the agency intends to conduct on beautiful and innocent wild mares at the BLM’s holding corrals near Burns. The letter, states:

    This is a highly controversial project and the BLM has received thousands of public comments in opposition to it. Not only is this a matter of significant public concern, but also it is precedent setting. Never before has the BLM performed invasive surgical sterilization procedures on federally-protected wild horses in experiments that could lead to a program-wide policy of releasing sterilized wild horses on the range….Given that these experiments will form the basis of this program-wide policy, public documentation of this project is essential to the public interest.” 

    If the BLM denies our request, we are prepared to file suit in federal court to uphold our First Amendment right to observe these experiments.

    Once again, we have asked the BLM to drop its plans to surgically remove the ovaries of 100 mares through a blind and archaic procedure called “ovariectomy via colpotomy.” The majority of mares used in the experiments will be pregnant, and removing their ovaries will cause many to lose their unborn foals. 

    The National Academy itself warned against the procedure due to the severe health risks it poses to wild horses. Aborted foals and deaths from bleeding, infection and evisceration (protrusion of bowels through surgical incisions) are in store for these poor mares, but the BLM does not care.

    If the BLM won’t abandon this terrible plan, then, with your help, we will document this research for the world to see. 

    This is critically important….especially since the BLM says it is doing the experiments in part to determine whether they are “socially acceptable.” Only by documenting and exposing this cruelty, can we stop the BLM from implementing these atrocities on more wild horses, including those still roaming free on the range!

  • Heber Wild Horses Saved

    The following post comes from the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros.

    Future AZ Generations Will Enjoy Historic Wild Herd

    Lantry, SD -A settlement of appeals was agreed upon between the Forest Service of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest (ASNF) and the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB) and the TerraWind Ranch Eco-Action Group (TREAC) assuring the future protection of these unique wild horses.

    Represented by attorneys Anthony Merrill and Tiffany Andersen of Polsinelli Law Firm in Phoenix, the groups met with the Forest Service in Albuquerque on May 6th to hammer out the resolution of the appeals filed against the Forest Service on December 23, 2015 pertaining to the Land Management Plan for the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests.

    The resolution harmonizes the plan with the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act of 1971.  It removes certain inflammatory language pertaining to the horses and finally it requires the FS to show how the plan will impact the wild horses.

    ISPMB’s president, Karen Sussman, said, “This was a well deserved achievement that required the persistence of our wonderful attorneys and the cooperation of the Forest Service with Cal Joyner, Regional Forester, at its helm.”  Sussman further added, “This was the right thing to do – it is the law.”

    Jill Irvin, Executive Director of TerraWind Ranch Eco-Action Group  stated, “These wild horses have a long and rich history and are an integral part of Arizona culture.  Their presence in the ASNF adds aesthetic value and contributes tourism dollars to our economy, and they deserve to be recognized and valued as wild life species.”

    In 2005, ISPMB and their attorney, Anthony Merrill, successfully obtained an injunction in United States Federal Court for the District of Arizona stopping the Forest Service from “rounding up, removing, or awarding a bid for capture and removal of horses from the ASNF.”  The Forest Service was to complete a Territory Management Plan for the Heber Wild Horses.

    Attorney Merrill said, “I am pleased that the Forest Service will work with the affected and interested groups and our clients to develop the much needed Wild Horse Territory Plan.”

    We hope you will support our efforts as ISPMB continues to WIN for our wild horses.

  • Mine Expansion to Impact Triple B Wild Horses in Nevada

    0

    The following post comes from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is seeking public comments on an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) regarding the proposed expansion of the Bald Mountain Mine, an open pit gold mine in White Pine County, Nevada. The mine lies entirely within the Triple B Herd Management Area (HMA), and the expansion will have a negative impact on over 7,000 acres of habitat and available surface water availability by draining water from aquifers already depleted from drought. Even if BLM ultimately approves the mine (a scenario that seems likely), the agency can take steps to protect horses and mitigate impacts of the mine expansion. Take action below to urge BLM to protect wild horses in the Triple B HMA.

  • Horses Safe – but waiting for Emergency Truck Repair to come home

    0

    The following post comes from Chilly Pepper Equine Rescue.

    CLOSE TO $4,000 +/- IS NEEDED for emergency repairs to fix the rescue truck. – (We have spent over $1000 so far, and now the other bank of injectors is needing replaced prior to Matt driving one more mile.)

    Matt is stuck waiting for the truck to be repaired, and as usual, God sent us an Angel. His name is Larry, and the picture above is his place and the horses are happy and enjoying their “break”.

    As we deal with the frustrations of old equipment and trying to save lives, I have to once again be grateful. Our angels watched over us again and the truck started having issues about 10 miles from the shop, as opposed to Matt being stuck out in the middle of nowhere with the horses.

    I paid for our “rescue truck” personally, with my own funds, but have designated it to the rescue and for rescue use only, pretty much since the rescue started. It has been our “rescue” truck since the very beginning, and we have put well over 100,000 miles on it saving babies, big kids and a few other assorted critters.

    While y’all are the reason we have been able to do what we do, without that truck none of this would have happened. Unfortunately it has 200,000 miles + on it now, so we will be needing to raise funds for a new truck in the future. However, everything is checking solid with the exception of needing the new injectors, and I am happy to say that we did get about 100,000 miles on most of them. (We did have to replace a couple of them last year, but they are not the ones that failed like I thought.)
    __
    So once again, the horses and the rescue need help. Things are going well here with the horse kids that are here. We have placed 5 of the babies we brought home and three more, possibly four, should be heading to their new homes in the next week or so. The gelding of the 6 stallions has been scheduled and once we get through this, we will continue saving lives and doing what we do.

    Thanks to all of you, we have been blessed to be able to save 32 babies, 11 adult wild horses, the Percheron Big Girl, two miniatures, and we are receiving a Jenny this coming week. So because of the love and support our “rescue family” has shown us, we have been able to save all those lives AND help place over 20 wild horse kids in safe and loving homes.So thank you for saving those lives :).

    We want to thank everyone for being part of saving all of these lives. It means the whole world to each and every horse that we save, and although we can’t save them all, we are grateful for all the lives we do save because of folks like you and your love and support.

  • Will Congress Allow Back Door Mustang Slaughter?

    0

    The following post comes from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

    We anticipate that the U.S. House of Representatives will vote next week on the 2017 Interior Appropriations Bill, which currently includes dangerous language that opens the door to large-scale killing of wild horses and burros via transfer to other federal, state and local government agencies. The bill also contains report language that encourages sterilization of wild horses and burros, including by inhumane, invasive and dangerous surgical means.

    This is the most serious threat to wild horses and burros since the 2004 Burns Amendment authorized the unrestricted sale of older and unadopted animals! Even if you have previously done so, it’s important to continue to contact your Congresspersons to let them know that you want them to uphold the will of the people and protect our wild horses and burros from slaughter for commercial or non-commercial purposes, and from barbaric sterilization practices. Please remember that calling as well as emailing will help to ensure that your message on behalf of wild horses and burros is heard!

  • American Horse Council Reaffirms Support for the PAST Act

    0

    AHCDuring the American Horse Council’s (AHC) annual meeting and issues forum in Washington D.C. the AHC Board of Trustees  reaffirmed AHC support for the Prevent All Soring Tactics Act (PAST Act). The PAST Act would strengthen the Horse Protection Act (HPA) and prevent the soring of Tennessee Walking Horses, Spotted Saddle Horses, and Racking Horses

    “The AHC annual meeting brings together leaders from all segments of the horse industry and every major horse organization and allows them to discuss the issues they believe are most important to the industry,” said Julie Broadway, President of the AHC. “Soring is without a doubt painful for the horses subjected to this practice and even though it is limited to a small segment of the walking horse industry it damages the image of the entire horse industry.  There is no question that ending soring is a priority for the horse industry and the AHC is committed to passing the PAST Act.”

    Soring is an abusive practice that continues to be used by some horse trainers in the performance or “big lick” segment of the Tennessee Walking Horse, Spotted Saddle Horse, and Racking Horse industry. It usually involves the use of action devices, chemicals, stacks, wedges or other practices to cause pain in the horse’s forelegs to produce an accentuated show gait for competition. At the 2015 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration alone U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspectors identified 226 violations of the HPA.

    No other breeds or disciplines’ have a history of soring, have a reason to sore their horses to accentuate their gait, or have been cited for HPA violations. In fact, since other breeds show at various gaits soring would be counterproductive and harm their ability to successfully compete.

    The PAST Act would amend the HPA to prohibit a Tennessee Walking Horse, a Racking Horse, or a Spotted Saddle Horse, the three breeds with a history of soring, from being shown, exhibited, or auctioned with stacks, action devices or chains.  These new prohibitions would not apply to other breeds that do not have a history of soring. The bill would also increase penalties for HPA violations and eliminate the current ineffective designated qualified persons (DQPs) program. A full description of the bill can be found here

  • Tell Congress NO to Mustang Slaughter

    0

    The following post comes from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

    These are dangerous times on Capitol Hill as public lands ranchers and their political allies in Congress and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) make their moves to lift the prohibition on killing healthy wild horses and burros and selling them for slaughter. Their agenda is clear: mass roundups and removals, mass killing/slaughter of more than 80,000 wild horses and burros (those in holding and those considered “excess” on the range), and the surgical sterilization of wild horses and burros that remain on the range after the mass removals take place.

    We need you to weigh in NOW by contacting your elected representatives in Congress. Please urge them to resist any efforts to remove the ban on slaughtering America’s wild horses and oppose any language that creates a back door route to slaughter for these iconic animals. 

  • “Lovely and Peaceful” Killing – Help Us Stop This

    0

    The following post comes from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

    They want to kill over 80,000 wild horses & help sterilize the rest. Help us stop them.

    At a rigged oversight hearing on Capitol Hill last week, Rep. Cynthia Loomis (R-WY) called for the “lovely and peaceful” killing of all the wild horses and burros in Bureau of Land Management (BLM) holding pens because their “wild lives are over.” Nevada rancher JJ Goicoechea called for mass roundups and sterilization.

    We must stop this.

    The agenda of public lands ranchers and the politicians who serve their interests is clear:

    ►  Round up 100% of America’s wild herds and remove the 40,000 wild horses and burros that the BLM considers to be “excess.” BLM Roundup

    ►  Slaughter the 40,000 “excess” wild horses and burros and the 44,000 already warehoused in BLM holding facilities.

    BLM Holding Facility►  Sterilize every one of the 27,000 wild horses left on the range via risky and invasive surgical procedures.

    BLM Sterilization

    It’s a recipe for unprecedented brutality and extinction of these national icons in our lifetime. 

    We will not let this happen, but we need your help to stop it.

    The livestock industry agenda for our national symbols of freedom is nothing short of un-American and we can stop it…with your help.

    Please donate as generously as you can to support our legislative, legal and grassroots efforts to save America’s majestic mustangs and burros. We can do this, because we have the power of the people on our side!

    AWHPC 062016

    Tomorrow, June 22, 2016 – the House Natural Resources Federal Lands Subcommittee will hold an “oversight” hearing on the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wild horse and burro program. This hearing is being driven by pro-livestock members like Wyoming’s Cynthia Loomis and will be completely stacked in favor of legalizing the slaughter of America’s wild horses and burros. Just one witness – Ginger Kathrens of The Cloud Foundation — will testify for our side, while four witnesses, including the BLM, two ranchers and the anti-wild horse Wildlife Society — will make the case for slaughtering our wild horses and burros!

    Since your Representative is on this subcommittee, YOU are in a unique position to influence this dangerous development. Please ask your Representative to attend the hearing and speak up for the American public, which wants our wild horses and burros protected from cruel roundups and brutal slaughter.

    This hearing will happen TOMORROW, so please act immediately!
