How it all started…

They proceeded to immediately call Animal Control and the police got involved over the next few days, but they couldn’t enter the property or find the property owner. Josh and Alex returned a few days later and noticed the situation had worsened, so in a last ditch effort Josh left a note on the gate with his number. Surprisingly, he got a call back that night. The owner offered to sell them the minis at a very good price, so Josh and Alex went back the next day and bought 19 minis, retrofitting their almost full show barn to house them and nurse them back to full health. They initially rescued a total of 35 minis, finding homes for many of them and keeping a few at their barn. One of the minis they rescued was the one they initially spotted out in the field driving by on that fateful day. They named that mini “Peeps” and since then she’s taken over operations at Mad Season and has weekly meetings to remind everyone who’s in charge.

After taking care of Peeps and finding homes for the other minis, the Mad Season crew realized this was something they were passionate about continuing, so they started the Peeps Foundation, dedicated to helping minis in need.
