My friend writes:
" My world is crashing in on me. I am supposed to be out of home and barn 9-15 with 3 horses and a pony. I am at wit's end and can not afford to board. CAn you help me save the 2 Arab mares - I can't stand the thought that they might be at risk once again. They are now green broke 4 and 5 yos and but lack registration papers... They are the ones I brought up from the Carolinas - by Nat'l CH Eng Pls. stallion Huck's Reflection V, and rehabbed after their terrible experiences. I can't stand the thought of them being at risk again.
Do you know anyone who would take them at least temporarily?"
From www.equinerescueleague.org, here is a list of rescue places in MA, just in case your friend can't find homes in time! One of them may be able to help place the horses or even take them in if it comes to that...
Unfortunately no papers - the original owner is a disbarred atty... need I say more! He may even be in jail. Papers were never recieved. These mares were rescued 2 x by my friend and now she needs help for them!
They will both make great trail horses, local show perhaps and absolutely fabulous pasture ornaments!
Thanks for the leads, she is running out of time - move date is next Monday. THe S.O. is being an SO-B.
this is a long shot, but try Roberta Bryant in Leverett MA- Craig equestrian center. She's been breeding Morabs for years -involved in CTR - it would be worth the contact- she might know someone looking.
What is she going to do if she moves and hasn't placed them???
Sorry I haven;t been on - BUSY times right now. My friend had a reprieve to the 26th of September. Mare are still available. great driing pony got very sick this week and cost her $800+ so far with no real diagnosis or solution. He is such a cutie and fabulous driving pony she hated to give up on him. Even the Vet said, he is soooo nice!
I'll pass on the names given... any other ideas? She has no place to move them and time is getting tight - options are not good... The 2 mares have already been 'saved' and they are lovely. A shame to put them 'at risk' again.
