    Subject: Fw: Thouroughbred horses need homes - please forward to anyone you might know
    A barn full of 52 horses will go to Sugarcreek on Saturday if they are left.

    Gentleman died and his son wants nothing to with them.


    Most broodmares are broke and some are in foal

    Weanling, yearlings,two yrs, and 3 yr old most are gelded - he was a vet -- NONE broke and very lightly handled


    Free and papered if they can find them you can have them.


    Friend of the deceased gentleman is trying to find them all homes

              I shared on FB. That's a lot of horses to home in not a whole lot of time considering the time of year, the big storm this week, and the economy...

                Awful situation. Just awful. I can't believe they only have until Saturday. Geesh, life really sucks sometimes with these seemingly hopeless situations.

                Did the guy have a website with any pics or information?

                  Purely from Googling, I would guess that perhaps the gentleman who passed was Daniel Stearns, DVM (his obituary is in the Daily Racing Forum this week) He owned Harmony Hills Farm and according to the Ohio breeder's directory, stood two stallions - Noon Prospect and Colony Key. But that's all the information I can find.

                    That information is correct. My barn manager went and picked up a few broodmares and one of the studs. She said there are still a lot left to go as of this past weekend. The mares are ready to pop. Not good at all.

                    I so wanted her to get me one as well, but I have to be economical I keep telling myself.

                      THANK YOU!

                      You guys are great!
                      Thanks to those who posted on FB when I couldn't.

                      AppJmpr: those were my first thoughts when I got this email
                      Timing could not be worse for those horses.

                      TrakGeorge: good to hear your BM was able to take some of the horses

                      Maybe this s/b a crosspost in the Racing forum?

                        I'm glad to hear that they are finding homes - if we were closer I might be able to talk DH into a broodie or something (he was just saying last night how he missed having babies around the farm), but I'm not going to ship a super preggo girl from Ohio to Maine.

                        I hope the rest of them find homes soon!

                          It wouldn't be ideal but it sounds like the preggo mares are getting on a truck regardless and would be better off going to Maine.

                          I'd be so tempted to say to drop two off on the way by Mass but I don't know how I would manage them. My stalls are not large enough for foaling, I would have to take a wall down to make one foaling stall...

                            Now that's not fair. Enabler. (Walls aren't *that* hard to take down! )

                            If DH sounds like he's cracking I'll let you know - I do know a shipper who may be out this way again (he left Maine for Iowa last week...)

                                    No...when you call the number you get a message from a woman and she said something like...thank you to all who are calling reguarding the horses at this time they have all been adopted. If you want to leave a message please do so...

                                      Wow that's impressive (and I hope they all went to good homes!) perhaps some of the other breeding farms in Ohio purchased groups of horses?

                                        Does anyone know for sure that these were Doc Stearns's horses?
                                        If we can't ridicule the rich, what's the point of being poor?
