Abandoned Arabian Stallions. Update post 77; Stallion 1 has lifetime home!
Hi COTH folks. **Please cross post this info.** If anyone could suggest Arabian forums for me to post this info, that would be helpful.
I would greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word on these Arabian stallions. They were abandoned at a foreclosed property near Santa Rosa, California --- about 1.5 hours north of San Francisco.
All four horses have lived the past 10 years in 24x24 pens without shelter or exercise, dental, hoof care, or worming. They need TLC. They are all halterbroke and friendly. We are told they are former show/breeding stallions from a large breeder. Registered names may be: Muscatin (1984), My Hi Stakes (1988 and son of Muscatin), My SX Superior (1984) and the last is unknown.
These stallions will be humanely euthanized by the lienholder if no homes can be found. I'm giving it a try, I know its a long shot. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 707-544-7584 for more info. Thank you, Katie Moore

I should add that there are no papers, and we are going on what we were told are their names. It's very possible the names are incorrect. Their original breeder/owner was supposedly a James Paetz (deceased).
It would be wonderful to find them a soft place to land, even if it's just a few weeks of TLC, then put down...they have suffered a great deal.
I can't help, but for ID you might try looking for freezemarks, usually on the right side of the crest. I know it used to be relativly common to freezebrand arabs and I have seen several with the marks.
Oh how sad. Stallion #4 is lovely and looks like he could make someone a nice riding horse if his temperament allows. Those poor old guys, I sure hope they get some love before they are euthanized. Unfortunately my house and yard are about the same size as their pens so I am no help.
Oh, that breaks my heart. They are really beautiful. Good thing I am not closer! I hope they find homes. Number four also caught my eye. Actually number one must have been stunning when he was younger.
