Ears the news…

Well, May certainly flew right by! Thank you to all who attended our Open House. We had a great day weather wise and had a great turn out. It was wonderful to see old friends and to make new ones. The adoption of two donkeys resulted from the day! Our friends Jessica, Larkin, Emerson, and Nicole from Empowered Equestrians did their usual FABULOUS job of introducing people to the joys and power of training using positive reinforcement.

It’s hard to believe that we are more than half way through June already. It seems like little Sassy was just born but she is on her way to her three month birthday. She gets cuter and sassier by the day. I am surprised that she and her mom have not yet been adopted. They will make a great addition to someone’s barn yard.

Sassy

We have a lot of animals available for adoption right now. Having bonded pairs makes it more difficult to place animals but we do what is best for the animals and a singleton donkey is not a happy camper. Donkeys need another donkey as a buddy for their behavioral and social needs to be properly met. For that reason we only adopt out donkeys in pairs unless it is to a home that already has a donkey. Yes, many donkeys live with goats or horses as companions, but there are published studies validating the fact that when given the choice donkeys will choose another donkey as their companion.

We also do not adopt out donkeys to be used as guardians. I get a lot of “yeah buts” on this one. Yes, sometimes it can work with the larger donkeys. Most often it does not. I once took in a donkey jennet that had been a guardian to a herd of goats for 17 years. She was with the kids when they were born every year. The year I took her in she had killed all the kids that were born that season. Why? Who knows? I have heard stories like this repeatedly and have taken in other donkeys due to similar, though not on such a large scale, situations. Thinking of using a mini donkey as a protector is just silly. I have seen donkeys horribly wounded by a single dog.   Those of you who know me, know that I will always do what is best for the animals in my care. If some folks don’t like my rules, or me for enforcing them, I’m ok with that.

I would like to officially welcome Meg Dionne to “Team SYA”. Meg does an unbelievable job of cleaning up after these manure making animals. When she is done cleaning a paddock it looks as if it has been vacuumed!!! She is awesome, has a wonderful sense of humor and if I dare say, is just a bubble off plumb, so she fits in perfectly! We love her!

I would be remiss if I did not mention how thankful I am to Mike Dunham, Annie Kellam, Andria Elliot, and of course my right hand gal Hannah. I could not do this without them. I am also, as always, deeply grateful to those who donate so generously to make sure we are able to give the best possible care to the donkeys and mules we take in to the rescue.

Get outside. Hug your long ears, and enjoy these lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer!

ChEARS,

Ann

CHILLY PEPPER – 12 hours to PAY FOR & PICK UP 10 ORPHANS. 5 O’CLOCK PM IS COMING FAST! WE NEED HELP ASAP!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

SHORT UPDATE – 911 – THE NEW BABIES NEED YOUR HELP NOW!

Hi,

We are on the road to WA. We have until 5 o’clock to raise more funds to save these orphans. It will take close to $2,000 JUST to purchase, get the blood work for Coggins with their health certificates, and get enough milk for a couple of days for the 10 orphans that we know of.

The cost for milk averages $300 per baby per month, and that does not include hay and their grain.

From what I have been told, there are other babies in need at the catcher’s, and we need the funds to bring these kids home to safety. Sadly there have been some serious injury and even death due to the large number of horses going in and out of the catcher’s. We need to get any additional orphans out of there asap!

PLEASE HELP NOW IF YOU WANT US TO SAVE THESE 10 BABIES, (plus any others.) Their mom’s and dads will have already shipped to slaughter by the time we get their this afternoon. Let’s AT LEAST save them.

Thank you for helping us save these babies NOW, and thank you for saving all of the lives you have! Each and every single life matters!

MORE BABIES AT THE SHIPPERS AND MORE HORSES TO PICK UP URGENT – 911

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi,

URGENT update from Chilly Pepper. As of this minute there are 3 babies waiting for me in Yakima, NOT counting the many at the shipper’s. (Thankfully our wonderful friend Kari Robi picked them up for me and Mama Mel is currently caring for them as I prepare to head back up.)

The news is NOT GOOD. The trappers just pulled in another 200 horses and I was told there are lots of babies at the shipper’s. As y’all know, it could be 5, it could be 25. I never know until we arrive on scene.

However, Matt is leaving today to deliver horses and within the next two weeks we should have 12 leaving from here.

Matt is also picking up 12 horses in Yakima, after taking 13 to Bend OR, but thankfully most of them will be placed with the folks we work with.

Y’all have saved many lives and y’all have been amazing. However, the funds have dwindled with every horse saved.

To finance the rescue of the upcoming horses we still need your help. Just within the last month or so, we spent OVER $3,740 JUST ON COGGINS AND HEALTH CERTFICATES. This is frustrating beyond belief, but that is what is required to transport these horses to safety. (Coggins is a blood test required by law.) THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE BAIL, FUEL, OR ANY OTHER COSTS.

So PLEASE UNDERSTAND when I say that the funds are dwindling. It is costly to save these precious lives, which makes it even more amazing that we do not have to keep them all on our books. Thanks to the amazing folks we work with, once y’all have saved them, they go to new homes and then we can put new donations to saving more lives.

THE HORSES NEED YOUR HELP TODAY! You decide WHICH TRAILER they will be loaded on. Matt is heading out today and I will be heading out in a couple of days. But we can’t save more if we don’t have funding. The catcher also has 100 horses at his place right now.

WE CAN’T SAVE THEM ALL, BUT LET’S SAVE AS MANY AS WE CAN. EVERY LIFE MATTERS!

The photos at the bottom are some of the ones we just brought home. I am so proud of our Chilly Pepper Family. Y’all are amazing and your love and emotional / financial support is what keeps us going. This is hard and what we see is devastating. Please help if you can (and I am working on Thank You’s as fast as I can.)

HORSES NEED YOU NOW !!!! ANOTHER 48 Hour DEADLINE was SERVED moments ago….. 47 hours & 59 minutes……. COUNTDOWN TO DEATH…. URGENT HELP NEEDED

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ONCE AGAIN, we have been given another 48 hour deadline…… The original 8 were saved, and another rescue in WA thought that the 6 who were shipping on Friday had all been adopted. Unfortunately, folks did not come through and there are still 4 at risk to ship in 48 hours. There are also an additional bunch waiting to be loaded in 48 hours.

YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT SAVED 24 LIVES !!!! You paid their bail and allowed us to do what was needed to save their lives. They included 15 foals, 3 mares with their 3 foals, 3 heavily pregnant mares and a badly injured young mare. (Sadly two little ones didn’t make it. One died in WA due to severe injuries and being septic when she came in. The other one died from starvation and dehydration at the vet’s office. We did everything possible to give him every chance. I sat with him in my lap as we helped him pass quietly from this world. He, like Luckee, tried ever so hard to fight to stay with us. He was constantly in my lap or laying with me, and PTL we had a special donor who helped with his vet bills so your funds could save other lives.

Unfortunately I received ANOTHER CALL YESTERDAY – There are 4 babies whose mom’s are shipping on Sunday, and I was told to expect more. We are praying that the two mares who are ready to give birth do so before they are loaded. We have no option to save those two mares, but are praying they have those babies prior to being loaded on the truck. It is a horrific thought either way, but this is our reality and it is brutal. Thankfully we can save many lives with your help, and every single life we save is extremely important to that horse.

We picked up the 4 starving horses, only to have even more heartbreak. The older one who was in the absolute worst shape had to be euthanized yesterday. He went into congestive heart failure and was in agony. So once again we had to do the right thing and clean up someone else’s brutal mess. I simply have nothing left when it comes to my heart. Matt was pretty much ready to just shut this down. We have seen so much death and heartbreak these last few months, and every single one happened because we weren’t able to get to them in time.

We need urgent help immediately to save as many as we can to keep them off the truck. The NEW 48 hour deadline is ticking away as I write this. I realize that we are always having deadlines and emergenciesBut that is what the “front line” is. YOU make the difference for these lives, and I am ever so grateful. Please show your love once again.

We so appreciate y’all making it possible to keep them from suffering a horrific death by slaughter.

▪ If you see horses starving, don’t wait. Contact help immediately and feed them in the meantime. It is devastating and heartbreaking to come in too late to help.

These horses are SHIPPING ON WEDNESDAY. There is a total of 14 SHIPPING and there are 6 HEAVILY PREGNANT MARES…….

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

URGENT HELP NEEDED TODAY!!! The above horses ARE SHIPPING ON WEDNESDAY!!!UNLESS we can raise enough money to save them in the next few days. There are 8 shipping on Wednesday and 6 more scheduled to ship on Friday UNLESS we are able to save them. There are 6 heavily pregnant mares in the bunch, along with some long yearlings and foals.

Unfortunately we have incurred some hefty vet bills in the last couple of weeks that total OVER $ 3,500 which we have not yet covered. There will be more vet bills if we can save these horses and the pregnant mares, with Coggins, health certs etc.
Add to that the fuel expenses, cost of saving the horses and we need help now, or they will die.

We are still standing by for the 25 at risk, miniature horses, and received an update that possibly next week some would be ready to be picked up.

We also need funding to pick up the 4 starving horses shown below. This is a heartbreaking situation where the wife was found deceased and her husband has been unable to function. He is devastated and also in need of care and for us to get these horses to safety and get them healthy again. This also will require extensive vet care and lots of groceries.

We currently have 5 orphans at Chilly Pepper and they are averaging $1500 in milk per month, not including their munchies, hay and the medication that was needed for some of them.

We are looking at huge expenses associated with rescuing these horses. Not only are there the 14 mentioned above, the catcher is bringing in another 6-8 today. ALL of the catchers are trapping as many horses as they can. I realize we cannot save them all, but I am praying folks will step up so we can at least save as many as possible. The four starving kids will come to Chilly Pepper for rehab and we have a place for some pregnant mares and possibly some yearlings if folks want to save them.

PLEASE HELP NOW, and share with anyone who might want to be part of saving these precious lives.

We so appreciate y’all making it possible to keep them from suffering a horrific death by slaughter.

We did it! Thanks to your help, we were able to raise $55,000, blowing our $50,000 goal out of the water!

With these donations, we’ll be able to continue fighting for wild horses — out on the range and in the courts. We couldn’t do this crucial work without your support.

Watch out for future emails from us with updates on the legal battles we’re fighting in Nevada, as well as rescue stories (the ones that make this all worth it). 

I can’t thank you enough for helping us stand up for these innocent creatures. Together, we’re making the future of America’s wild horses and burros safe, secure, and beautiful.

CHILLY PEPPER – 14 BABIES, MARES AND FOALS AND BADLY INJURED HORSES NEED URGENT HELP! 23 HORSES NEED FUNDING!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

WOW, it never seems to slow down. The last trip up here y’all saved 18 lives. This time we have 23 on our books on this rescue, and that is just the beginning…..BUT WE NEED MORE HELP TO PULL THIS OFF! We have 14 babies, and each baby averages $300 per month JUST for milk, not including all the rest of the expenses. So we are looking at about three thousand, three hundred dollars ($3,300) just for a month’s worth of milk. That doesn’t include any of the other numerous expenses. Luckily two of the babies came in with mom and the other one we were able to match up with a mare today.

It cost over $1500 just to get the horses to where they are right now, for sorting etc. It is amazing how many expenses there are behind the scenes. Every time anything is done, there is a charge. As Matt and I are not allowed to sort, there is a sorting fee also, every time horses are sorted out for pick up etc. Thankfully there is another rescue working on this as well, and some of these expenses are shared.

However, they have their own horses to pay for and vet etc, as we do. We are looking at a couple thousand in vet bills easily as we have two horses with pretty serious injuries, and we have to get Coggins etc. on all these horses. As these horses are extremely reactive, most likely it will take a maximum of drugs to sedate them to the point where we can treat them properly. As always, the injured and needy are kind of our specialty, so we picked up both of the injured horses so they could get the care they need asap.

RED HEAT, the only surviving stallion out of the 80 plus horses, is one of the ones we are saving. There don’t seem to be many folks out there who can take on a wild stallion and then get them vetted, etc. So since he had the moxy to escape that slaughter truck when 39 others shipped, I believe he deserves a chance to live. Right now the words used to describe his attitude are not complimentary, but once gelded he should settle down nicely.

Of course when we went to pick up horses today, another stallion magically appeared. As he was about to be shipped, we simply had to step up for him also. Stallions are kind of a big deal when you don’t have the right set up on the road, but once gelded, after a time they are simply “geldings”.

We so appreciate all the funds y’all have donated to save all the horses we JUST SAVED, but we have already spent thousands on this rescue and are looking at thousands more to get the 23 that we are already committing to safe and ready to begin their new lives. We can only do it IF WE GET the much needed financial support. Thankfully, once again we are working with folks who will help us place them, so they do not remain on our books. However, as usual we incur all the expenses to save, purchase, sort, vet, transport etc. these horses to start their new lives.

YOU can help us save them. Please donate and share with folks who might not know what an amazing thing you are part of.

I am stuck in WA with the 14 babies and injured horses while Matt will be delivering two mare and foal pairs, 4 geldings and taking one of the stallions to Chilly Pepper. It is going to be a long and exhausting road, and we really really need more milk, as the babies are playing “catch up”.

Thank you as always for coming through for these horses and keeping them from shipping directly to slaughter.

CHILLY PEPPER – 18 LIVES SAVED!! YOU DID IT! Just received an EMERGENCY CALL – TRAPPER HAS 80 HORSES IN HIS TRAP NOW!!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

WE DID IT! We saved another 9 orphans, 3 stallions, a mare and foal and 5 pregnant mares about to pop. In the last month, your donations have saved 40+/- lives!!!

I ALREADY HAVE 5 NEW BABIES WAITING IN WA TO BE PICKED UP AS I WRITE THIS, AND MOMENTS AGO I RECEIVED AN EMERGENCY CALL. The trapper has 80, YES 80, horses in his trap. We have been told to expect anywhere from 25-30 orphans between another rescue and myself, and we are being offered the chance to possibly save some very heavily pregnant mares who are about to drop their babies.

Yesterday Matt and I picked up 4 bags of Foal Lac Powder, 4 bags of Foal Lac Pellet, 6 bags of goat’s milk and about 9? bags of grain. The total was $1460. This much milk would possibly feed 4 babies for a month? It is excruciatingly expensive to properly care for newborn, days to week old babies and even older ones who need milk. The milk is just the start. We spent over $1300 this last trip to get Coggins and Health Certificates etc. and we already had them on a couple of the horses. The Brand Inspection was $116. There are SO MANY HIDDEN EXPENSES… Rescue is expensive.

We are scheduled to get the majority of the orphans, and I have a couple places that can take on up to a total of 9 heavily pregnant mares. But it will take a village. We desperately need help to pull something of this magnitude off. Last year y’all saved 100+ horses in two pick ups. But babies are WAY MORE EXPENSIVE, and we want to at least save as many of the pregnant mares as we can.

IT IS GO TIME, and these 80 horses are standing in a pen, exhausted and confused as to why their world has turned upside down. They have no idea, thankfully, as to the horrors that await them. PLEASE, PLEASE help us save as many as we can.

We only have one of the orphans left, and he gets to hang out with Suzie Q, until we pick up the 5 plus ??????? The only kids we brought home who will be staying on our books right now are the stallions and Timothy. Luckily, we still have folks in our network who are taking on a couple or so and finding them their forever homes. We simply don’t have the time if we are going to keep saving lives.

This is a NOW ISSUE, SORTING IS SCHEDULED FOR TOMORROW! (and they are charging $800 – $10 per head to sort them out)

IT’S UP TO Y’ALL – DO WE KEEP ON SAVING MORE LIVES? I HOPE AND PRAY YOU WILL!!. IF WE HAVE THE FUNDING, MATT AND I WILL KEEP ON KEEPING ON…..

You have saved so many lives, , 40 in a month’s time? That is amazing and it is all because of the love and support you have shown for these horses. Let’s save even more. These beautiful animals have only hours for their future to be decided.

On a sad note, my beautiful boy Luckee passed away after a week. I am thankful we spent the time with him, as for a short week his life was pretty darn good for a weak little munchkin. For the first time in his life he had everything he needed. He had little baby horses to love and play with. He was never alone, not even for a second, and he was not cold or hungry or thirsty. He really enjoyed his short time, and when I spoke to the vet, she said she would not change a thing, because he finally got to have everything he needed and have great quality of life for a short time. Of course my heart is still broken, but I am grateful that he DID NOT suffer when he passed.

Let’s honor LUCKEE’S SHORT LIFE by saving his families and relatives from a fate worse than death.

A STEP AWAY FROM HEAVEN’S DOOR – LUCKEE – NEEDS YOUR HELP! MEET OUR NEWEST CRITICAL CARE ORPHAN !

0

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 trucks in the shop and the repair bill will be just shy of $2000 at a minimum. We are running 16 year old trucks, and there are simply things that HAVE to be done so we can safely pull these horses and get the job done. We, have pulled over 8,000 miles in the last two weeks alone, but lives are saved!

Of course that was not an expected expense, so it is putting a real hurt on the finances. With 8 babies, WE WILL NEED AT LEAST $300 PER MONTH PER BABY, JUST FOR THEIR LIQUID MILK. That will be $2,400 and that is just a drop in the bucket. First we have to pay for them and then we need Coggins etc, not to mention medicine etc. etc. as we never seem to get robust happy babies who need little care.

Thank you to those who have already donated. Unfortunately the truck repairs and additional babies were not covered. However, we really need more help ASAP to purchase, vet and transport additional horses, and provide LUCKEE with every possible advantage to give him a chance for a life. The vet describes below what we will be looking at and how expensive it is IF we can save this beautiful soul.

The catcher was out today so the probabilities are endless.

So please help us if you can, and PLEASE SAY EXTRA PRAYERS FOR THIS SWEET BABY WHO IS FIGHTING SO HARD TO STAY HERE FOR AWHILE!

Are slaughter proponents shifting tactics?

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

Are Mustang Slaughter Proponents Shifting Tactics in Congress?

At a hearing on Capitol Hill yesterday, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), who last year lobbied hard for language authorizing the mass killing of wild horses and burros, signaled a possible shift in tactics. Instead of advocating for Congress to lift the ban on mustang slaughter, they focused on non-lethal management strategies. While the Interior Department’s Fiscal Year 2019 budget still proposes language that would authorize horse slaughter, it may be that Secretary Zinke and Rep. Stewart have resigned themselves to the fact that mass slaughter of America’s wild horses and burros is wildly unpopular, especially in an election year. Whatever the reason, the shift in focus away from slaughter to non-lethal options is a significant development. Read more in an analysis by AWHC’s lobbyist by clicking below.

AWHC Candidate Questionnaire: Ready to Launch

As a supporter of AWHC, you deserve to know where your candidates stand on the issues involving wild horses. That’s why, in addition to our work in the field, in the courts, and with the federal budget, we’re launching a new initiative: our first candidate survey. Over the next few months, we’ll be asking candidates in key states a series of questions on where they stand on protecting wild horses and burros and our public lands. We’ll then inform our supporters of the candidates’ positions on the wild horse issue, so voters can be informed before heading to the polls this fall. Click below for a preview of the survey and stay tuned for the results.

Mustang Rescue Underway

As a result of AWHC’s Cooperative Agreement with the State of Nevada for rescue of the Virginia Range horses, over 200 of these cherished mustangs have been saved from slaughter. Through a strong coalition effort, the vast majority of these horses have been placed in quality homes. However, the downside of adoption is that many adoptions fail, and mustangs routinely enter the slaughter pipeline. Such is the case with five Virginia Range horses — a senior gelding and his family — who are currently being transported back to Nevada after being rescued from the kill buyer who operates the notorious Bastrop kill pen in Louisiana. Read more by clicking below about the rescue and why we fight so hard to keep wild horses wild and free on the range, where they belong.

A CHANCE TO SAVE MORE LIVES – DEADLINE TOMORROW – HOW MANY CAN WE SAVE – PLEASE, WE NEED URGENT HELP RIGHT NOW….

0

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 ALOT OF MONEY TO PURCHASE THEM, PAY THE FEED BILL AND GET THEM VETTED AND TRANSPORTED!

(Although the conditions have become less than perfect, the reason the horses are there is so they have a chance. If they were not there, they would have already shipped to slaughter. )

Matt and I were working with another rescue and had to do an emergency run to Alabama. Matt was going to go alone, but the deadline made it necessary to have 2 drivers. We picked up 5 kids who will be staying with us for some TLC. Thankfully we will only be providing the actual care, and the folks we are working with will support those 5. PTL!! They need medical care and most folks simply cannot do that for wild horses.

As soon as we get back we will be heading up to get the orphans and whomever else we can save. Thankfully Matt will be delivering quite a number of the kids at Chilly Pepper to their new homes. Our feed bill has been horrendous, about $1400 in hay per month, and hundreds and hundreds of dollars in special feed for the babies we just rescued and the special needs horse kids. We also spent close to $5,000 on tires, breaks etc for the truck and trailers. We are running the rubber right off the tires. We have also incurred higher than normal vet bills and we really, really need help so we can make this happen. We also have to pay the folks who run the place while we are gone and make all of this possible.

We are really limited right now as far as available funds for this rescue. All I can ask is that any one who wants these kids safe will do whatever they can. Thank you!

Thank you as always for being part of the Chilly Pepper Family and for making it possible to save so many lives.

Sadly, I need to share that we had to release SUPERMAN from this world. He came in with an injured hip and Saturday he shattered it. We made an emergency call to the vet but nothing could be done. So much heart break, and although it hurts too much and makes me think I just can’t keep going through this yet again, all we can do is wipe away the tears again and again, and HONOR HIS LITTLE LIFE BY SAVING OTHERS.

I LOVE YOU LITTLE MAN. OUR BELOVED SUPERMAN WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART!

CHILLY PEPPER RECEIVED ANOTHER URGENT CALL – MORE MARES & FOALS, & A FAMILY OF 6 – CAN WE SAVE THEM FROM SLAUGHTER –

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Hi all,

I have to write this from the heart, as there is no other way for me to share the truth. We had great success and saved 3 moms with their babies. We also saved 7 weanlings, 6 of whom are in horrific shape. They are starving and could easily be called a hot mess. However, the next phase is starting for them. They are being treated and are now enjoying good food and a chance to relax.

Sadly, we lost our beautiful “My Heart’s Desire”. She had a freak accident and snapped her leg, much like my femur did. She ripped her femoral artery and sadly baby passed with her very quickly. We did everything we could, but Mom and Baby left this earth together. It was still so much better for them than slaughter, and mama knew lots of love and tenderness. But that does not help when your heart is in a million pieces.

We are not even home yet, and we received a 911 EMERGENCY CALL. I am sitting in my girlfriend’s living room writing this as I don’t have time to drive the rest of the way home before we send this out.

We got called about a family of six, and we have only hours to say yes, save them or no, we can’t help them and they will ship straight to slaughter.

There is a mom with a teeny tiny new baby, (and if we can’t save the family, we will be heading up to pick up an orphan.) The stallion, who has worked so hard to take care of his family is the most likely to ship. CHILLY PEPPER is literally his ONLY chance to live. There are 3 heavily pregnant mares that finish up this family. Again, I cannot bear to think of these babies being born in a stuffed trailer heading to slaughter. If Mom gives birth during the trip due to the stress, they will be brutally trampled and not have a chance of surviving the trip. IF they make it through the trip, they will be tossed alive on to the slaughter floor. I am sorry this is so brutal, but it is the simple truth.

The trapper is literally at the site loading them in his trailer. We are working with folks in WA to try and find a place for them to land, at least long enough for us to raise enough money to save them. Chilly Pepper cannot take on a bunch of adult horses, but as we are the only ones who can take on a stallion, if we can save them all we will figure that out. He doesn’t deserve to be murdered just because he is a stud.

PHONE JUST RANG AGAIN – IN ADDITION, WE NEED TO pick up 2 mares and foals as well as an undetermined number of orphans this next week, IF we can raise enough funds to purchase, vet and transport this next group. Y’all did awesome this last time and saved 15 horses from facing slaughter.

SO PLEASE HELP US SAVE THESE LIVES IF YOU CAN, AND SHARE FAR AND WIDE SO FOLKS CAN HELP US “GIT ‘ER DONE!

Below, the Family of 6, – who’s fate is still in the air, and that is just the beginning, and during the time it took me to write this, the number has already increased by a minimum of 4 more on top of that and the week is just starting………

WE COULD EASILY HAVE UPWARDS OF 20 BABIES WITH ONLY HOURS NOTICE.

EVEN MORE HORSES TO PICK UP – PLEASE HELP SAVE THESE LIVES – CHILLY PEPPER

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

THANK YOU FOR SAVING MY MOM TOO!!

Well as usual, we are saving way more horses than we were told about on this trip.

As of right now I am sitting in WA State in Mel’s driveway with 3 mares and their tiny babies. One of them was just born yesterday. We also have 4 weanlings, and unfortunately they are in really rough shape. They are severely unhealthy and so far from healthy it brings a tear.

The first mare that came in with a baby is also underweight and severely lacking in groceries. Her baby (named Jax), had a badly infected puncture wound on his front leg. Thank God we took his temperature as it was extremely high, 104.1. That is really high and much higher could be deadly. So we gave him antibiotics and cleaned and flushed his wound. We have to separate him from mom twice a day to medicate him and clean his leg. It’s a bit hairy because his mom is on the reactive side. But so far everyone is safe and settling into the routine.

We also saved a very pregnant mare who has a severe injury to her hind end.She was in tremendous pain and is having issues with both back legs. She is very thin and it’s so sad to see how weak she is and how very pregnant she is. She is also on pain meds, and we are hoping and praying that she will have her baby before we have to travel.

We pulled 4 weanlings in with mom and baby, but instead of dropping them off at a friend’s to be placed in their new homes as planned, we have to take them back to NV for some much needed TLC. They are simply not healthy enough to place yet. This is not good news because we really are short on room. When we get more shelters and finish fencing the property it will be a bit easier, but for now I have to find shelter for all of them. In addition, we picked up two more mares with tiny little ones. The little black baby was born yesterday.

Today Matt drove to Bend, OR to deliver 15 mares for another rescue. Tomorrow he has to drive back up to Bonners Ferry Idaho. We are picking up our beloved Diesel and bringing him back to NV. In his pictures he looks amazing and I can’t wait to kiss the little dude again. He has been in a wonderful home, but as they feel they cannot give him the attention he deserves, we are picking him up and will eventually find him his forever home.

The next day Matt is picking up even more kids, as there are two we are expecting who are roughly 7 months and are apparently severely tick and worm infested, not to mention extremely malnourished, much like most of these kids coming off the range.

I am beyond frustrated because we need to put up a shelter here in WA at Mel’s so these horses would have cover. It is pouring rain and my day old baby is out in it. Thankfully mom knows what to do, but it makes me crazy. Baby season is just starting so we are going to have to keep dealing with this.

So we are now looking at 14 horses we need to transport back to our rescue.The good news is that most of them will already have a place to go as soon as they are healthy. The less than great news is that our vet bill for Coggins and blood work is going to be exponentially higher and so has the cost of this rescue increased.

We appreciate all the folks who have stepped up to help, and we still need help. We have a serious shortage of shelters and feed, but I know we will find a way to “git ‘er done”.

What’s scary is the “season” is just beginning. So let’s get ready to keep saving lives and keeping horses safe from slaughter. Together we can make a difference!

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 us.  Kaya made many a birthday memories and she introduced hundreds of new volunteers to horses.  She served our veterans in a horsemanship clinic, and she was good friends with many of the seniors in our herd.
Please click the image to share in some more memorable Kaya moments.
No doubt, there are angel kids riding Miss Kaya, and
she’s making their time in Heaven extra special!
Kaya, we so miss you, Sweet Girl!!

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 chance. There is a reason it didn’t lay there and die alone. Hopefully the reason is that we can save it.

In addition to foal lac powder, pellets, milk and meds, we will need help with expenses for fuel, Coggins, vet care and special groceries for this baby. We are not sure if he/she will be ok but we are going to give it our all.

The above photo of Hope is most likely very similar to the age and size of the little one we are picking up. Hope is thriving at her new Mom’s at Wendi Clark’s.

Racoon has improved so much. Her coat is much healthier, she has grown 5 or 6 inches taller (it seems like anyway), and she and Belafonte, her goat buddy are best friends. THANK YOU for saving her! She is on her way towards being a healthy youngster!

IT’S GO TIME AGAIN!

We received an urgent call for a baby mustang who is fighting for his life, but at this point barely hanging on. I apologize for the photo, but it is what we have and it clearly shows he is starving to death and in extremely critical shape. If you look closely, you can see his top line is completely exposed and simply skin over bones.

His coat is ragged and he is obviously wormy and most likely has ticks. When babies get this thin (adults too), the body starts eating itself to survive. (Honeybandit’s blood work showed his body was in that mode). That is when you start getting organ damage internally. He has been getting good food, but he obviously needs immediate attention to his health issues. As he is in urgent need of critical care, Matt will be leaving tomorrow to go get him.

We are delivering 3 horse kids on the way to WA, so although we will have a couple spaces here, Racoon needs to go immediately to the quarantine nursery. Thankfully, Matt just finished the inside stall this morning. (They say timing is everything lol).

We need to purchase stall mats and some panels for an exercise pen so he can begin his rehab once we get him home.

We need help with expenses for fuel, Coggins, vet care and special groceries for this baby. We are not sure if he will be ok but we are going to give it our all. We do have to finish his nursery prior to his arrival and we would really appreciate any help you can give this baby.

Please help us give “Racoon” a chance to live a long and healthy life. He needs immediate care so he won’t have to suffer anymore and we also need prayers that too much damage to his internal organs has not occurred. He was not expected to live this long, so it is obvious he is a fighter.

We are already in contact with the vet in his area so we will be working closely together to give him the best chance possible. Please help if you can!

Baby season is coming early this year.

I am still on crutches but will have to stay home to feed and take care of the critters. The timing isn’t convenient, but when God puts a “baby in need”, in front of you, you just “git ‘er done”. Babies can’t wait. Please say a prayer for Raccoon and help us save him if you can.

Thank you for all the love and support and all the lives you’ve saved! We could not do this without you!

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM CHILLY PEPPER & ALL THE CRITTERS!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Happy New Year!

What we have all accomplished in 2017 is beyond amazing. Y’all have made it possible to save so many lives. Please remember, every single horse that was saved in South Dakota was partially due to the love and support you continue to show. Our rescue spent a great deal of money on that situation. Although it was only a drop in the bucket compared to the hundreds of thousands donated by the big organizations, for us the thousands plus that we spent was mind blowing. YOU DID THAT! You made it possible for Matt and I to do what we had to do. In turn, we made it possible for FOA to do what they did. Elaine Nash and Barbara Jo Rasmussen also are partially responsible for the hundreds that we saved this year. If they hadn’t stepped up and taken on the re-homing of the horses at ISPMB, we wouldn’t have been able to save all those orphans and all the families that you helped us save his year. So by working together, the affects reach further and further down the line without us even realizing it.

I wanted to share this. As one of our favorite “family members” so eloquently said,

“Hi Lauri! My name is Tina. I am the mother of the young girl you are referring to in your post above. I have to THANK YOU for bringing Frosty into my daughter’s life. Frosty lights up her world! Your rescue efforts trickle down to giving a young girl the ability to use her determination, compassion, and love to pour into this sweet and gentle boy! She absolutely loves him. Thank you!

I am going to post a few pictures of Madelyn and Frosty’s growing relationship. Enjoy! :)

As you can see, kindness and love trickle down and keep on going. ALL OF YOU MADE THIS HAPPEN! An old blind stallion who most likely would have not had much of a chance because he was “too old to geld” as well as being blind, now is in the perfect place. THANK YOU!!!

I know it seems that sometimes we take on a lot of the “lost causes”. But these are the ones who need the most help. Lots of people can help with the “easy ones”, but at Chilly Pepper we have seen more miracles than even seems possible. I don’t believe in killing a horse because it is inconvenient. I truly believe God puts them in front of us so we can do what is best for them.

I am sorry it has taken so long to do this update, but we started the Christmas Holidays with some heartbreak. We lost my lil brother Tim, 4 days before Christmas. His passing was a complete shock and like everyone who loses family, we simply needed some quiet time.

So many folks have been asking for a leg update. Well the good news is that the Doc said it looks great as far as the break healing. The scary news is that Doc also wants me to start seeing his joint specialist. He is afraid I will end up with a Catastrophic Failure of my total knee. (I guess once they are over 10 years old they can fail?) Of course I haven’t told him yet that it’s baby season and that means we will most likely be crazy busy again. I can say I am not looking forward to them taking the rod out of my leg.

So we are back on the proverbial horse, and working like crazy to get the kids their new homes and figure out where our new “permanent residences” fit in with the other kids.

So I am still on crutches but hoping to keep healing quickly. It has been really hard not being able to do much with the horses, especially with so many critters here.

We have a couple of guys who need to be gelded, and lots and lots of hoofers to get trimmed. We think that Kyle (our long yearling draft) is starting to stand a bit higher on those front legs. The vet said if he doesn’t improve he may only be comfy for 3-4 years? So we are praying that with special feed he will be another miracle. It’s go time now, and we need to be ready for the upcoming foals, so we are getting the new quarantine area ready to go.

Thank you and God bless you for sharing this wonderful journey with us and for making the Chilly Pepper family so amazing.

Thank you for all the love and support and all the lives you’ve saved! We could not do this without you! Another one of our “too old to geld, blind stallions“. The day he walked up and said hi I swear he knew it was a life saving moment.
