THE EMERGENCIES JUST KEEP COMING. About an hour ago I got the call, and it was even shorter notice than normal. We have 24 hours for Matt to get to Yakima and save 11 orphans and a mare & stallion.
Our budget is completely tapped, but we have to try. I don't want to be the one who says "no, we can't get them, send them to slaughter".
It will cost roughly $3250 to save them, get the blood work for the Coggins test, the Health Certificate and the brand inspection. (The average cost is usually about $250 per horse including transporting them to NV). But this does NOT include any money for hay, grain or milk for the little ones.
We simply CANNOT raise funds to "save" them, without having some funds for feed and care. It is not responsible and we already are close to max numbers at Chilly Pepper.
It is so disheartening for the roundups to still be going on. But now it's up to our entire Chilly Pepper family.
HOW MANY DO WE SAVE? HOW MANY GET LOADED ON THE NEXT TRUCK OUT?
THESE BABIES NEED YOUR HELP! We simply cannot do this with our current budget. Once they are safe, they will need gelding, feed and vet care until we can find them a home.
At some point we have to say "no", and unfortunately we have been. However, we are the one rescue that is allowed access to these particular babies, so all we can do is our very best. They have no other chance.
Please help us save these babies and the mare and stallion. Matt will be on the road about 4 a.m. The number of horses we save will depend on the funds Y'ALL raise.
I will be staying home with Hope and Gypsum. They have been a huge roller coaster ride and are definitely not out of the woods yet. We still need prayers for them. The vet was here today and we are very hopeful, but all we can do is "one day at a time".
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who donates, sends their love and prayers and shares these updates.
Honestly Matt and I are so past "ready for a break", but if y'all want to save these lives and help us care for them until they have a home, we are willing to keep going. As tired as y'all are hearing about the "emergencies", you can be sure Matt and I are also tired of the phone calls and running 24/7. However, if we don't stand together to save these lives, who will?
