In April, we started off by helping Big Girl, the draft horse whose feet were worn down to nubs – and she was still made to work!  But then, the same rescue brought home 8 orphaned babies whose mothers shipped immediately after they were born.  Thumbelina was less than 24 hours old when she was abandoned.

Well, the good news is that they all survived!  And, Thumbelina has a nurse mare!!  Wahoo!  The rest of the babies are thriving on milk replacer and TLC.

Big Girl is healing.  It will take time with her.

Luckily, Enzion Labs donated 50lbs of Equion (I have used this incredible supplement for 20 years – I highly recommend it)… so I think the Equion will really help boost Big Girl’s coat and nails.  (We should all take it!)

April Bucket Fund receipt


I received this email from Palomino at Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang Equine Rescue & More -Rescue/Rehab Project LRTC:

“Thank you so much for all you do.

Big Girl is starting to be not quite so sore. Was pretty scary for a bit, and she still doesn’t move too much, but there is definitely a difference.

Luckily she LOVES her goodies so she is eating her hoof stuff very well. Doesn’t seem like her feet are growing, but I am sure they are. I think we just look at them too much lol.

I cannot tell you how much we appreciate what you do, and what you have done for these kids.

We placed all 7 in great places and even got Thumbellina a nurse mare, which is by far the best thing for her. I never thought I’d leave her, but she is in Idaho and she fell madly in love with the mare even when it wanted to bite her. By 3 a.m. she was nursing with the mare simply haltered and being held.

Cried like a baby to leave her, but she was so happy. She sat and nuzzled and licked her new mommy for close to an hour after she nursed. Broke my heart to leave her but also filled all the cracks with so much joy. Funny where God sends you and what His answers are. PTL we listened for her sake.

We brought home Shimmer and Cocoa Puff. I will send you a couple of pictures, and today we took in a 6 month old miniature baby who is hanging out with the other two babies. We also took in her mama who is with the other miniatures.

Busy as always, and as I write this Matt is bringing Velma and Cowboy back. We have found them both a home together, although Matt said Cowboy has picked up a bad habit and is biting. arghghhhh

Will go send a couple of pictures so you can see the new kids.

Thank you so very much!
