In loving memory of Little Mister (pictured above)

Our guest will be Palomino Armstrong, who (along with her husband, Matt) is the angel who runs the CHILLY PEPPER – MIRACLE MUSTANG, that specializes in CRITICALLY ILL, NEO-NATAL, SICK AND/OR INJURED FOALS.  They take care of the foals that are near death’s door, needing literally 24/7 care, and live with them in the nursery until the foals are strong enough to live outside.  They also rescue other injured or newborn orphan animals.

They’re also training DaBubbles, a miniature horse who survived a mountain lion attack, to visit the sick, elderly, and best of all, kids who are in the hospital.

This radio show is co-hosted by Debbie Coffey, Vice-President & Director of Wild Horse Affairs at Wild Horse Freedom Federation.

  1. This sounds like another great radio show – and learning from others who care is what we all must do – will be listening for sure!


  2. The Foals, so often the victims of the roundups, would just be left to die, were it not for people like Palomino.
    Palomino Rocks the House — of REPRESENTATIVES
    from Palomino:

    Today we had meetings at the offices of Calvert, Young, Serrano, and Garamendi, in the House of Representatives. All the reps that we met with were very open to our ideas and the meetings were a great success. HONEY BANDIT ROCKED THE HOUSE! of representatives.

    Honey Bandit’s story had quite an impact, bringing tears to the eyes of more than one person. It is amazing how many people do not realize where their tax dollars are going. You can see Ginger Kathren’s video on you tube; it also had a huge impact on the people who saw it. “Many Thanks


  3. I hope Palomino will discuss “after-care” and the extreme financial costs that sanctuaries and rescues and individuals take on when rescuing a horse or burro (or cat or dog etc). People often do not consider how they will support and care for horses and burros after the initial (and often times minimal) initial cost and preparation. Horses usually live into their 20s … who will be responsible and how will we know they get the care they deserve for the rest of their lives? The thought can be frightening but is important and it can be done. Thanks.


  4. Palomino Armstrong must be one of those angels that we have all heard about … true dedication and sleepless nights to care for the foals that are in those atrocious circumstances at no fault of their own.
    Thank you.
