As we never had a break all year, our baby supplies have dwindled and these are the lifesaving supplies we need. Thankfully Chilly Pepper has folks stepping up to help with the care of these orphaned babies, as well as pregnant mares, stallions and any other horses we can save from slaughter.
But the current emergency is being prepared for that phone call. These babies need IMMEDIATE care to have a chance at surviving in this harsh world. Many of these babies will come from Mares that have been shipped to slaughter. Others will be orphaned by deaths caused by vehicles and then there are the ones who are injured or too ill to survive alone.
Thankfully we have 3 other locations where folks will step up and help us do the actual care for these babies, but Chilly Pepper incurs all expenses. (The MOST BABIES we have gotten at once was (70 BABIES IN 2 DAYS). This was from ONE trapper in 2 days.) So we have to be ready at all locations.
WE NEED TO ORDER SUPPLIES ASAP.
Foal Lac Powder - 40# bags - $150 32 Bags (just a start) $ 4,800
* (This would supply milk needed for 16 babies for one month). It is a drop in the bucket, but a good start.) This is only for the milk.
Probios 4 - @ $47.99 (Valley Vet) Estimate w/o shipping $ 200
Foal Response 16 @ $12.49 Estimate w/o shipping $ 200
Equine Coli Endotox 16 @ $36.09 " $ 578
New thermometers 4 @ $30 " $ 120
IGG (Colostrum replacer) 20 bottles @ $105.95 $ 2,120
These are the absolute basics we use with every neonatal foal. We need more panels, shavings, meds, and the list goes on. The above is the bare minimum to be prepared for the normal neonatal babies we can expect at the beginning of the year.
These are the life saving supplies that we HAVE TO HAVE to provide the best possible chance for these babies to survive.
Please donate if you can. You can also purchase items directly and mail them to Chilly Pepper, 12965 Green Saddle Drive, # 233, Golconda, NV 89414.
We also need baby wipes, vaseline, Biosponge, vet wrap, gauze, scalpels, needles, syringes, baby blankets, gloves, and the list goes on. Saving these babies is not cheap, but it is the least we can do for them, especially the ones whose Mom's have been shipped to slaughter.
