And so it continues........
This morning I received an urgent call. There are 5 orphaned foals waiting for us to pick them up. Of course I had a few hours to say yes or no, and a few hours after that to actually get them. We were not given any opportunity to save any of the others.
So, once again plans are changed at the last minute. Luckily Matt has delivered all the 44 that were not going home with us. Mel is sharing her place with us and babysitting our stallions and other kids waiting to go to NV.
We have the rolling foal hospital with us today, (with the orphan SKY and the injured filly Kahlua with us for 24/7 care.) Matt was doing his pre-trip check when he noticed one of the tires starting to fail. They have good tread, but we have been running on them non stop for the last three years since we got the trailer.
So once again, lots of unexpected expenses. New tires, saving and vetting the foals and milk powder and pellets etc. etc. for the new kids.
But when God puts it in front of you, all you can do is say yes and do your best. So we are back in emergency mode.
Thank you to all of our CHILLY PEPPER FAMILY! Without you, none of this would be possible. Again, I have to say this was a bit overwhelming, but with your prayers, love and support we will "git 'er done".
God bless and thank you so much for sticking by us and saving these lives. Pictures will follow.
Please send lots of prayers for safe travel, the support we need and for Kahlua to feel better!
