ANOTHER CALL in the middle of my update...... Can we save Mama & Baby?
YOU DID IT - We saved 15 more lives! But now I need to finish getting them vetted, gelded and ready for their new homes, as well as feed them.
As you can clearly see, Mercedes needs to be monitored from now until her birthing takes place.
Please notice how huge Mercedes is. Doc is extremely happy with how healthy she is overall, but we need help asap to make sure she stays happy and well.
Chilly Pepper was invited to the Cowboy Expo in Fallon, Nevada to share our Rescue and spread awareness of the plight of so many of our beloved horses. I committed to going months ago, so now I cannot break my promise. All I want to do is stay with Mercedes until I know the baby/babies are born and all are happy and healthy, but you are only as good as your word and I committed to going.
MERCEDES is a small horse, and could possibly be carrying a very large foal or twins. She needs to go to Goldendale Veterinary Clinic while I am gone.
I cannot risk her being here while I am gone if she goes into labor and has twins or the baby is too large. We have been through so much and the right thing for her is to be at the Vet's until I get back.
Board itself is not a huge expense, but our current vet bill is $4500+ It has to be paid down substantially by this weekend for me to drop her off.
The alternative would be a 12 hour trailer ride, and that is obviously NOT ACCEPTABLE.
YOU made it possible to save 15 more lives AFTER Smokey.
Please help us secure feed, vetting, gelding & everything needed for the YOU SAVED, so they can be adopted.
3 of the Stallions and a mare were adopted out. 5 babies are adopted and at their new homes, one from here and 4 adopted out through Dustin Time Rescue in Idaho.
We still have way too many horses and there are ALREADY MORE WAITING TO BE SAVED We need to buy grain, and feed for the horses that are here. We did the easy part, saving them, but now I desperately need help feeding and to finish vetting them. We only have one more stallion to geld, and a few more Coggins to pull from this group..
Smokey, the starved Stallion who was thrown away on the reservation to die is doing well, but also needed to be gelded and we had to get his & other hoofers trimmed last week as well. With saving so many lives the expenses are huge.
Just so folks know - On one of the trailer loads of horses recently shipped to Slaughter, (NOT OUR HORSES), the LOWEST PRICE WAS $650 and the HIGHEST price was over $2000. Meat prices have SKYROCKETED along with everything else.
Another heartbreak - Doc had to euthanize one of our littles. In a freak incident, she was scared so badly, she ran headlong into the panels, causing devastating injury. She was treated for the external injuries but ended up in too much pain and unable to stand on her leg and stopped eating and drinking. Doc came back out to end her suffering.. These babies are so tough but oh so fragile. My heart is again shattered.
I know everyone is tired of the 911's and emergencies. So am I! But they are not my emergencies. They belong to the life of each and every horse you help save!
