    Ears the news…

    It seems as though summer is in a hurry to leave. This morning was downright chilly. Fall is definitely in the air. The donkeys and mules feel it too. There has been a lot of running and bucking and farting happening in the pasture today. I have been getting calls from folks who are going to be needing to surrender their animals before winter comes. We have had a good summer for adopting out animals, with three donkeys and the adorable mini horse we have going to their new home shortly.

    We have five animals in the rescue currently, four standard donkeys and a hinny, who all need a lot more training/handling/behavioral work done with them before they will be ready to be put up for adoption. We work with them almost daily, but it’s been slow going with this group. I am confident that they will come around in time, but in the mean time they need to eat and have their feet trimmed and receive veterinary care and it’s putting a strain on our bank account.

    Wow! How did it get to be July already?  It was a very long winter and spring here, with a lot of animals waiting to be adopted.  I’m very happy to say that we now have a much more reasonably sized group of individuals and bonded groups looking for new homes. Big thanks to all of our recent adopters!  I’m sure this roll will continue.

    We had a lovely turnout and nice day for our first of what I hope will be many Clicker Training workshops with Lyndsey Lewis. Lyndsey is great at teaching people as well as animals.  It was a lot of fun.

  • Horses Need Homes or Face Slaughter Auction

    The following is from WHMentors.org. This adoption is a joint effort of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign, the Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund, Least Resistance Training Concepts and the Virginia Range Sanctuary.

    sdoptThe Virginia Range horse herd, managed by the Nevada Department of Agriculture, is believed to be the largest publicly owned horse herd currently remaining in the US. The horses are managed through the cooperative efforts of the department and various qualified non-profit horse groups. While the emphasis of this management is passive population control (fertility control,) horses do occasionally spread out into the outskirts of urban areas and onto busy highways. Those that present a clear and continuing danger to motorists, and that return to busy areas after relocation attempts, do have to be removed.

    State law requires the Department to dispose of any horses that are not placed with in a proscribed time at the livestock sale. Therefore every effort is being made by all parties to get these horses placed.

  • Standardbred Retirement Foundation Urges Caution

    This is a repost of an article from harnesslink.com.

    Uncle Milt

    Uncle Milt

    The Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) says its recent spring follow-up of all its adopted horses led them to the pain and suffering of one, and the missing of three others.

    The 22-year-old gelding, Uncle Milt, had been in a home for nearly 3 years and the SRF had always received a prompt veterinary follow-up form every spring and fall, until this past season. SRF asked a long-time volunteer to visit after several attempts to reach them by telephone and mail had failed.

    The horse was found in poor condition. A relative of the adopter later called and explained that her uncle, the adopter, had passed and they were caring for the horse but were having trouble keeping weight on him. The SRF tried to work with the family but a visit again resulted in removing the horse from their care. Ironically, the horse was accompanied in the field by another horse in great weight.

  • Angels in Idaho

    The following update comes from Chilly Pepper Equine Rescue.

    WE WANAngels in IdahoTED TO SHARE THE GOOD NEWS! 

    Exciting news – We received a message yesterday that our new “Angels in Idaho” will be taking three babies. Seanna, (shown in photo), Boots and Cicero will all be heading to their new home this week.

    Matt and I will be transporting them. We will need roughly $375 fuel for transport and a little for Health Certificates and needed blood work for transport. So we are looking at between $400 – $500 to secure these three great homes.

    (Unfortunately it won’t reduce our monthly board as they have been at Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang and we do not receive any funds for “boarding” even though they were part of the 55)”. ) But it will certainly be a reduction for feed expenses and leave me more time to help gentle other wild ones and care for the upcoming orphans.) Finding them homes is the biggest blessing ever :)
