This came across another list I am on....these are not my horses, I'm merely crossposting it here in case anyone is interested. The contact info is at the end of the message:
Arabian Horses in Kentucky FREE
For medical reasons, my husband and I are dispersing our herd immediately.
We are giving away FREE 12 purebred Arabians. They MUST be moved before the end of January or I'll have to send them to a stockyard. We will have no choice.
Please email me privately for extended pedigrees. Time is of the essence. No comments, please, about the stockyard. After 35 years of creating a wonderful gene pool and beautiful, athletic horses, my first priority now has to be my husband who was just diagnosed with an aggressive terminal illness. The last few months we expect to have together will have to take priority over the horses and we hope to find them good homes in the next two weeks. It is our hope that anyone reading them will spend their energy helping find placements rather than being critical of the alternative we may be forced to take.
I have the pedigrees in .jpeg format, or anyone can look them up in the DataSource as well. None are broken to ride, though a couple have had some professional halter training. They are all quality breeding stock and some would make phenomenal show horses.
All the horses are located on my farm in central KY. They are all free to approved homes. I'll try to have all their pedigrees on my Web page shortly at www.dunaventarabian s.com. I cannot pay for Coggins and health papers on any of them, or pay for shipping them for people. We have enough expenses with feeding them for the rest of the month and paying for medical expenses for my husband's illness. I have already taken extended medical leave from both my jobs.
At this point I guess it will be "first come, first served" to get them moved. You will see G Silk Boy figures prominantly in the pedigrees. He was a US and Canadian Top Ten in performance and the last son at stud in the U.S. of the phenomenal US and Canadian Top Ten *Muscat daughter Amber Silk. G Silk Boy was sired by *Menes and was 75% Russian.
Here's the list:

The horses have all been adopted. This was just received at another group I am a member of regarding the free arabian horses:
From the owner... "First I want to thank everyone for their offers of help and support and especially for the prayers for my husband and me. Several asked about his terminal illness: he has just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has already spread to his liver and lungs. I have taken extended medical leave of absence from both my jobs and of course he is on medical leave from his.
I have received 144 emails at this writing about the horses that I posted to this venue about 36 hours ago. All the horses are committed to good homes and over half of them were already picked up yesterday. I met several new people who I hope will become new friends.
I have not had a chance to even read all the emails, let alone answer them, but PLEASE DO NOT CALL as the phone rang constantly yesterday and we already received 3 phone calls before 9 AM this morning. Though I appreciate your interest in the horses, my husband needs his rest and the calls are disrupting that. I don't want to have to take my phone off the hook in case of an emergency with my 80-year-old mother-in-law or if my husband's medical clinic tries to reach us.
Also I understand that several people cross-posted my original email to various other sites. I only placed the email on two Yahoo! groups, The_Arabian_ Horse_Classified s and RAH. But I have heard from people who saw it on ablackhorse. com and various other places, and multiple "rescue" and "rehoming" organizations have been in touch.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ANYONE YOU FORWARDED THE ORIGINAL TO and call everyone you called in the first place to let them know the horses are gone.
Again, thanks to everyone for their help and support. Please keep us in your prayers.
