The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY MOM TOO!! BABY SEASON IS HERE! We have already done 9 horses so far..... I received an urgent call this afternoon. We have a teeny, tiny little one whose mama is scheduled to ship out, unless we can pull off another miracle. We also are looking at two yearlings IF we can raise enough funds for them. But it gets worse, apparently there is at least one, if not more, very pregnant mares about to ship. For those of you who have never seen the reality of slaughter, that baby will be sliced out of its mama and thrown alive on the slaughter floor. I have actually seen it. That is the reality. This is why we work non-stop, often literally 24/7 around the clock taking care of babies to try and save as many as we can. (I cried all afternoon thinking about the baby and the horses. But I know that all we can do is our best, and I am thankful we are given a chance to save some.) We don't always have the option of saving mom, and in all reality we are full. So, IF WE HAVE A CHANCE TO SAVE MOM and the heavily pregnant mare and the baby's mama, we need help NOW, and lots of it. WHO WE SAVE will depend directly on how much money is raised to save their lives. We know we will find a way to get the little one, but I don't want to leave horses behind that we could save. UNLESS we just take the orphan, we will need to set up another shelter before we leave to be able to get the very pregnant mare and to save mama and baby. We don't have time to build one, we will need ...

So long, sweet Kaya!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: Sweet Kaya, Our Hearts are Broken We've had a sad week at AAE with the loss of our sweet, sweet ol' girl, Kaya.  Many of you may remember she colicked last month, and her docs found a stone in her tummy.  Sadly, it reared it's ugly self again, and this past Tuesday morning, Kaya was not herself.  She hadn't eaten her dinner, and she hadn't pooped all night.  Not good!  We called the vet, and after exam, we took her to the clinic for hospitalization.  She was impacted again, and we were faced with the surgery question, again.  It's a heart-wrenching question when faced with the cost of surgery, her age, recovery, and all the other horses in our care.  Just as importantly, all of the volunteers and participants that love each and every horse in our care and the participants that share their lives, as well.  Needless to say, this is one special mare that has so kindly touched the lives of so many people. She gave so much to so many, and she had a very good prognosis for the stone removal surgery, so we were planning to ask all of her friends for help.  As we were preparing a special fundraiser for her surgery, the call came.  Kaya had a cough.  Not a good thing with consideration of surgery.  Sadly, the docs discovered she had a diaphragmatic hernia.  She had fluid in her chest, and some of her intestines were pushing into her thoracic cavity.  Sadly, this presented a much more complicated situation for our sweet girl, and we felt the best thing we could do is send her gently across the Rainbow Bridge. Kaya came to us February 25th, 2014, four years and two days before she left ...

Another Angel in Heaven – but 5 MORE lives saved. A question to answer!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: BABY SEASON IS HERE! With a shattered heart I bring you Tana's update. As we were so far away, (in NV), when I got the call, and Tana had been found abandoned by the side of the road in Yakima, WA, I knew that she would be needing IV fluids if she was to have a chance to survive, and she needed them right away, well before I would get there. So we called the vet and she went out to Mel's to assess the baby, give fluids, check her leg and do her Coggins if all went well. Unfortunately the news was beyond grim. The below photo shows the broken bones in her leg. Even with an unlimited budget, this would have had nearly zero chance and it would have put Tana through more horrific and unconscionable pain. As I looked at her x-ray, I could only think of how much my broken femur still hurts. I could not put her through more pain. So sadly, we made the decision that was right for her; we set her free from this world of horrible pain that she lived in. So now we have a very hefty vet bill, as well as the cost of her burial and our trip to WA. HOWEVER, we were able to SAVE FIVE (5) more horses from a horrible fate at the slaughter plant. The cost for the two vet visits, (one for Coggins on the Fabulous Five, and one for Tana), as well as the cost to bail these kids and get them vetted is going to be close to $3500? not including fuel. NOW COMES THE KICKER! Just hours ago I received a call about a newborn(orphan???). Matt and I will be picking up the ...

911 – NEWBORN INJURED FOAL NEEDS OUR HELP NOW! – Chilly Pepper is on the way!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: BABY SEASON IS HERE! CAN YOU HELP SAVE MY LIFE??? TANA'S life is at stake. She was found injured and alone on the side of the road! I just received the call for a 3-4 day old orphaned baby mustang found on the side of the road. The folks were going to put it down as there is an injury to the back leg, but decided to give it every chance and called for help. In the meantime they gave it some colostrum and said it is drinking. We want to thank them for feeding the baby and bringing it in out of the weather. So Matt and I are in the process of heading up to Yakima momentarily. We need your help now please, if you can. We have tried to keep the fundraising to a minimum, but now that baby season is here we are going to need your help now more than ever. Due to my broken leg we are sitting on more horses than we normally would be, as I have been unable to train and get them ready for adoption. So our hay bill is $1000 every 3 weeks or so. We so appreciate everyone who has helped save so many lives in the past and are hoping and praying that y'all are going to be with us again this year. Babies are expensive, but when God puts them in front of us, well we need to step up no matter what. We don't know why this baby was left behind, whether it is because it is injured, or it could also have other issues. However, all we can do is get the baby and start critical care immediately. So please help us give this little one a ...
