By Palomino Armstrong,
There are so many emergencies, but THIS IS BEYOND AN EMERGENCY. The babies have been dying left and right, and we need to know right now if folks are going to step up and help us save them.
It’s hard to know where to start. I was contacted and asked if Chilly Pepper will take on these fragile foals. However, due to the extremely dangerous conditions, the folks are cashing in, the price is $300. (We pay more than that for horses all the time), but there could be up to 16? or MORE???? coming in by tomorrow. So just for bail, I would need $4800. Each baby will take a minimum of $300 in milk powder the first month, and that does not include anything. So milk powder alone will be close to $5,000. and that is just the start.
I HAD TO COMMIT to the newborns strictly on FAITH!! But after 11 of the first 12 we were on stand by for died, I cannot in good conscience say no. So I have committed to another four that will be here shortly. But, if folks want us to have a chance to save the other 10 they have seen stranded in the snow, with their starving families and moms with no milk, we have to raise enough funds and quickly. IF they bring another 10 tomorrow, that is $3000 we’ll have to have, or the babies won’t survive. Again, we pay more than that for a horse/baby all the time. It is just so scary when they are coming all at once.
So I need folks to step up now and let me know if we should try and save the 10 tomorrow, and I need desperately for folks to help us purchase, vet and take care of the ones we will have tonight.
It is so hard to have to keep asking for help, but we simply cannot do this without y’all.
Yesterday I was called to help a mare that was tangled in barbed wire. I went with another guy who had also been asked to help. He and his buddy went ahead of me, and I got all the medical supplies. The biggest heartbreak was that she was so starved it was worth fighting a barbed wire fence to try and find food that SIMPLY DOES NOT EXIST OUT THERE. Her injuries were not the worst of it. She lay for too long in the freezing snow and ice, and it was too much for her. So she had to be “dispatched”.
We have never ever had to deal with a situation like this. So I need to know, do I say YES for tomorrow? At this point I cannot risk anymore funds than I already have tonight. We are getting into hay money, but I can’t let two new babies freeze to death when I know that y’all are so amazing and would want to save them.
So Please Donate Generously. As always, I do this for free, but the babies need money for feed, care and vetting, not to mention getting them to safety.
I leave this in your hands, and am praying we can save the others that are stranded out there..
Cinderella, shown above, was rescued from a very likely snowy grave. She is here now and receiving the care she needs.
PLEASE HELP NOW!
Below you can clearly see how much snow is around. It is covering many of the barbed wire fences, and that shows not only how deep it is, but one of the reasons these rescues are so dangerous.
