Wow - no time to enjoy our successes.
Matt called me an hour ago.
Hi ya'll, We have a little emergency at Chilly Pepper.
Matt is up delivering the 5 mares in Northern Idaho, and the transmission in the Chevy just froze. He nearly wrecked, but thanks to our Angels was able to keep enough control not to. There have been absolutely no issues with the transmission, so I guess this was an all or nothing, and now we have nothing.
However, we are looking at a minimum of $7,000+ for a new transmission. You always have to wonder - do I put more money into an old truck?
Well, we have zero money in the budget to purchase a new one, and she is running perfectly. The transmission has over 270,000 miles on her which isn't too bad. So when you compare $7000 - $8000 vs $30,000+ for an unknown vehicle it seems to make sense to go with what you know.
So unfortunately I have to throw this out there and see if anyone wants to help us stay on the road and keep getting these horses where they need to go.
This was my personal truck that I paid for out of my pocket, but she has been dedicated 100% for rescue use for years now. Nearly 200,000 of those miles are rescue, so she has worked really hard.
▪ Please SHARE far and wide if you can. Thank You! *
The reason I am thanking God is that no one was injured and Matt and the horses are ok. Once again a less than optimal incident and yet no injuries to us or anyone else.
▪ I can say that I am truly sorry that I need to put out this update. * But he is literally stuck once again. Thanking God for US Rider insurance :)
