Catcher called AGAIN this morning! Who and HOW MANY can we save?
Thank you to all of you who donated for the weanlings.
Sadly, the Catcher called me this morning and wants me to go over and see if there are any others I can "save". This is the most painful and horrific part by far of doing rescue. To stand in front of a corral filled with precious lives and know you cannot save them all. To look into their beautiful eyes and know what fate awaits them if you don't choose them.
I'm sure folks are extremely tired of all the 911's and the emergencies, but think about this. I have to live this every single day. I get no breaks, (except for my broken femur - arghh), I have to lay in bed every single night seeing their haunted eyes begging me for help, It's as if they know. Instead of hiding and turning away, they all face me, many never taking their eyes off mine. It is horrible. I am already physically ill just knowing I have to pick and choose.
I seriously need to at least have $1500 per horse to save them. This time of year is the slowest for adoptions and I can be pretty sure that I will have to feed and care for most of them throughout the winter. That amount won't even begin to cover expenses after I bail them, get them coggins and have them hauled back to NV to feed this winter.
I CANNOT only "choose color". I CAN'T! So I already have 5 "brown horses" that will most likely be traveling back to NV with me. The old stallion will no doubt live out the rest of his life at Chilly Pepper, (unless we get a miracle). It's so hard, because color adopts out the fastest, and you need to get them placed. However, no horse deserves to die because it isn't "fancy".
So once again I am reaching out. I know I can't save them all, but I have to go and see who we can pull this afternoon. I was so happy because the weanlings were supposed to be delivered to me. (My trailer won't do the steep driveway). But apparently there is a chance to save more, and I can't in good conscience not try.
So please let me know what we can do.
Please help me keep saying YES, to saving these lives.
