The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue: April 24, 2018 Ears the news... To quote the Beatles, "It's been a long cold, lonely winter" but FINALLY! "Here Comes the Sun"! It has been the winter from H. E. double hockey sticks. I have never been so grateful for the arrival of spring. The winter seriously tapped our finances and our morale. We had several sick animals, we lost a dear donkey named Merlin to colic. His buddy of 14 years Rupert, also colicked badly and we thought we were going to lose him, but with good veterinary intervention and the commitment of dedicated care givers he rallied. We got him a donkey buddy to help him overcome his depression over the loss of his best friend and now Rupert and Mr. Peabody are thriving and are ready to be adopted. Rupert was also battling with his chronic equine "asthma" while being so sick from the colic episode. He is on daily medication that he will need forever so his potential adopter needs to have the financial resources to ensure he will get his medication. On April 2nd we welcomed Zelda's foal after an arduous wait! She gave us a healthy baby girl. We had a name the baby contest which was won by Barbara Henon whose name was chosen by randomly selecting a name from a bucket containing all the female choices. The little one has been aptly named Sassafrass, a.k.a. Sassy, and man oh man does she live up to her name! She is one sassy little one. She zips around her paddock, jumping over hay piles and the other day, right over the back of her mom who was trying to nap in the sun. Sassy is a sweet heart. She is already learning ...

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Hi all, While waiting to pick up the orphans, and of course the number is now 7 or 8 instead of 4, we picked up a foal named Luckee. Luckily is literally (and barely) standing in death's doorway. He needs help to get up and down, and I have attached part of the paperwork the vet's gave me. He reminds me of Honeybandit, and may be in as critical shape or worse than Honeybandit. IF he lives, it will be by the Grace of God and the amazing folks at WSU equine veterinary hospital. _Luckily for Luckee, Thunder Mountain made the decision to admit him last week, and covered his expenses up til now A t this point all expenses are ours, and the vet said to get ready for a long and costly recovery, IF we see a miracle. Luckee arrived at WSU with no response to his pupil test. That is a pretty dead baby...... He is touch and go, and the easiest thing to do was to let you see what the vets gave me. One vet wanted to let him go, as his prognosis is so poor, but the other two recognized his amazing will to live and as I promise each and every one of the critters we save: "AS LONG AS THEY ARE TRYING AND WANT TO FIGHT, WE WILL FIGHT WITH THEM UNTIL THEY ARE DONE. IF THIS BEAUTIFUL BOY LET'S ME KNOW HE IS DONE, I WILL DO THE RIGHT THING AND LET HIM GO. BUT IF HE WANTS TO FIGHT, I WILL FIGHT WITH HIM UNTIL THE VERY END." On top of all the horses and pregnant mares and stallions and increasing number of orphans coming our way, we had to put one of ...

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Hi all Quick update! The ALABAMA 5 are the horses we picked up in Alabama, shown above. As is clear, they need a lot of special care. They will be coming to Chilly Pepper for some TLC, and I am so happy to report it will not be on our dime. ONGOING NEWS..... We appreciate everyone who has donated to help save the Mares & Foals and the Stallions and the 4 orphans. We are getting close to where we need to be for those kids. We will be picking up the orphans, mares and foals and stallions on Monday. Again, most all of them will have places to go which will keep them off our long term books. For now they will be expensive, but only for a short time PTL! HOWEVER, I received another call, THIS TIME from my primary contact in Yakima. Once again WE ARE IN EMERGENCY MODE. There will be more horses, and there could be A LOT MORE! to save when we are up there picking up the group we just started fundraising for. What will happen is we will get called after they bring in the horses. I will have to stand in front of all the horses and decide WHICH LIVES WE SAVE. ALL THE OTHERS will SHIP STRAIGHT TO SLAUGHTER. This situation is beyond tough. It is so far out of our control. The only thing we will be able to do is save as many orphans as we can, depending on if we can keep raising more funds. Then there will be weanlings, and it is pretty much guaranteed that there will be a bunch of very pregnant mares. I wish I had the answer to this. All I know is that we ...

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Hi all, As usual we are on a DEADLINE. I HAVE 4 ORPHAN FOALS WHO NEED PAID FOR BY TOMORROW! We have ANOTHER STALLION to save, 9 NINE VERY PREGNANT MARES, (Most of them emaciated), AND THREE? MORE mares with foals at their sides who desperately need out of their current situation. The baby shown above NEEDS HELP IMMEDIATELY. I NEED FUNDS TO SEND OUT THE VET, and we all know that is never cheap. BUT HE DESERVES A CHANCE. He was born in the rain and cold, and was cold and wet for 3 solid days in the pouring rain and cold winds. There is NO SHELTER WHATSOEVER, and of course now he is having health issues. Can you imagine how dirty it was for his umbilical area when he could only lay down in mud and feces? UMBILICAL infections are often deadly, and he had absolutely no where to lay down where he wasn't in wet, dirty mud. He is now having SERIOUS health issues, and we need money to try and save him, along with his mother who is emaciated and struggling to even stay warm herself. There are 9 more mares who are so skinny you wouldn't think they were about to give birth, but they are. THEY NEED OUT OF THERE NOW! There are 40 HORSES in two small pens. I am sure you can imagine what will happen to a newborn baby with that many hoofers running around. Unfortunately the horses have been confined for awhile and they are getting snotty and fighting a bit. We need to step up and buy these mares and get them to safety. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT MOST OF THEM WILL ALREADY HAVE A PLACE TO GO, BUT WE NEED ...

CHILLY PEPPER – SUPERMAN – Another Chilly Pepper Miracle, and as usual, back on the road again. LET’S SAVE MORE LIVES!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: SUCCESS for the group of 6. Working with the folks up in WA at Thunder Mountain and the Yakima Foal Rescue, we are happy to say that all these horse kids are now safe. We also were able to save another stallion headed straight to slaughter. We are on the way back to WA, where Matt will be picking up 2 stallions and the emaciated mare and her baby. We will also be picking up two mares with their foals and an unknown number of Yakima orphans as well. I still do not have an exact pick up date, but we will be ready and waiting. In the meantime, we had an unexpected rescue of 3 miniatures. I received a phone call and the woman said she needed help as she could not care for them. The above photo shows the horrifying condition of their hoofers upon arrival. Superman, who was literally walking on the sides of his legs, was in agonizing pain and could barely move. Based on his condition and the lack of movement and the horrible pain even when on high doses of pain meds, there was much to indicate that he might not be able to recover from the damage. We were advised to euthanize, but wanted to make sure. He would not even walk to food with high doses of pain meds on board. Every step was agony, and we knew we had to do something immediately. The x-ray was shocking. His lil coffin bones were not nearly as rotated or damaged as first thought. Even after the x ray, the vet was not sure if we could save him. A plan was made and a specialized farrier was called in. She said we should try one trim ...
