    Default 24yo Stage Door Johnny stallion on Giveaways

    His damsire is Tom Fool.

    He's in Massachusetts and needs a home ASAP, as he and a companion will be sent to Crowley's auction on Tuesday (?)

    He's also out of one of my favorite mares/marelines--Bebopper/Bebop.

    That's so sad. I see so many threads like this where animals are being sent to auction if they don't get re-homed asap. It just breaks my heart but I can't take any more animals. I took 2 rescues last year and have never done that before. I just couldn't turn my back on two weanlings.

    Jingles and prayers for the horses involved.

    I'm too far away to take him, but if anyone here can take him, I'll help with the finances.

    This breaks my heart.

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Old stallions and old broodmares thrown away after their breeding days are over. We are a disposable country. And Tom Fool on his dam's side?
    Well fugly had the late geldings on her post the other day and 24 yoa is not too old to geld.
    Someone take him. I'll donate towards the transport or gelding.

    Ya gotta love the SDJ's! He was such a grand stallion! I'm in too. Wish I could take him. What is the companion? There was a SDJ that stood in South Alabama years ago, many of his babies raced in Birmingham -- very kind, big boned, tall sporthorse type. Is this stallion still breedable?

    There's another thread with this stud and another old stud. Both in Mass. Barn closing, and they are off to auction if not given a home.

    This is the other thread:
    http://www.chronicleforums.com/Forum...d.php?t=218110

    I've been informed that they will be free to anyone willing to take them.

    Thank you all for your concern.

    I have a possible line on a home for either one or both of them... we may need assistance with shipping costs if it works out. I'll keep you posted!
    Thanks again!

    He's actually got Nimbus by Elf--a truly great sport horse line--on the first page through Bebop. What a GRAND pedigree! And he was bred by Jock Whitney's wife, per the JC.

    This is Broadway Jester I'm talking about. A genuine dinosaur. His sire was 20 when he was born, and his dam was 23!

    I think I may know these guys. Count me in for a donation for shipping and care if someone can step up.

    I might have some photos of these guys as I used to board my mare and foal there. I will look around later when I return home. They were not in the best condition when I left a few months ago but I know they were UTD on vaccinations, deworming, and trimmings.

    I would be willing also possibly be willing to take one. There are a couple of variables working against the boys, though, so let me elaborate.

    I just spoke with the barn manager, and the she said the owner is willing to give these guys away with papers, and they are current on all vaccinations, farrier, deworming, etc. Broadway Jester is on all day turnout in a private paddock, and apparently still quite spunky! Both are sound, healthy and "have never even had a snotty nose". The current owner has owned Boradway Jester since he was a yearling. The farm is closing it's doors, and all horses need to be moved before the 15th. From what I gather, Broadway Jester is in all day turnout, and is respectful of fencing, etc. though he still KNOWS he is a stallion and will act like one. Concorde's Future is a bit more mild mannered, even though he is "younger". Whatever the case, they have both been in a boarding situation for years, so we know they are easy to handle, as long as someone remembers they are stallions.

    HOWEVER, neither horse has a current coggins, and they apparently there is someone scheduled to pick them up for the sale on Tuesday. I could also possibly offer a home for one of them, but I am not aware of any hauler who will haul without a current coggins in hand, unless the horse is going directly to a sale.

    Whatever the situation, and whereever the horses end up permanantly, I am thinking the horses *may* need somewhere to stay for a day or two until the coggins is back, and final transport arrangements can be made. Even if I cannot take one, I would be willing to pitch in, as well, for hauling. I cannot afford to haul one home presently, as I just purchased an older stallion and all of my resources are going into him right now, and he needs to come first.

    Thanks, Joie!! I'm glad to hear she got back to you, and thank you for providing all the details. My friend and I are working on finding temporary housing for them around here until we can get everything in order - I should know about that in a few hours. Greenerpastures on the other thread said her father has agreed to take one of them. I'm willing to get the coggins done and I can arrange that no problem. Anyone have any ideas on shipping companies, quotes, how to get this all done??
    Thanks so much!!
