THE NEED IS ENDLESS, while funds are not!
_My heart is once again in a million pieces. Doc was just here and we had to set Jackpot free from his suffering. He fought so hard!
"Bart", the beautiful stallion, is also at peace. When he ran his leg would flop around. He was suffering horribly and now he is finally pain free in Heaven!
Again, I acted on sheer Faith as I still need to pay for him etc. I know you would want me to end his suffering.
This has been the most horrible rescue I have ever been on. Whatever it is that is out there has taken a huge toll on these precious lives.
_26 babies total, 2 lost to internal injuries they came in with. 6 lost, (including Jackpot) at our various ICU nurseries to a deadly virus. So far none of the tests are showing exactly what it is. There were thoughts it could be Salmonella, but tests on one of the babies showed no. However, it did show an unknown pathogen.
There have been outbreaks of Salmonella in 6 states, and tests are still being run to find out the exact issue. These newborn or week old babies have zero to fight with._ In spite of being under CONSTANT vet care, receiving fluids, tube feedings, 2 shots a day and oral meds twice a day, there was nothing else we could do. My team & I are beyond devastated. Whatever it is, the babies will be playing, running, eating and looking like the picture of health. Sometimes as soon as 2 days later they are gone.
I had to stop my update and take care of the stallion & the injured mare Chica. I am running on complete faith, as we still owe $3,000 for the balance of the emergency visits. I HAVE to pay them right away. We are out of pretty much everything, and have already been notified to expect LOTS more babies.
Supplies were wiped out with the 26. It is amazing how much you go through when you have sick and dying babies. I am praising God for the ones who are still here and who made it.
I kept asking WHY, WHY ARE WE GOING THROUGH THIS??? Well, when I was quiet, God answered. EVERY SINGLE BABY THAT DIED would have died an agonizing death out on the range. Most likely they would have been eaten by coyotes WHILE they lay suffering, scared, alone and waiting to die. So I am TRULY GRATEFUL, even though I can't breathe. It is a gift to be able to help these little ones. A very painful and excruciating gift, but a gift none the less.
I am also running on faith because I know how tight things are for folks. However, I simply cannot take on babies and lives if I cannot take care of them. So I am having faith that God will provide and my Chilly Pepper Family wants to KEEP SAVING LIVES!
