I heard about that yesterday, Kitten. Such a shame those lovely, well bred Arabians were treated like that. Canterbury Farms used to be quite the showplace, and now it's come to this.

It's my understanding that Day's End has plans to shred the registration papers of those horses. I don't agree with that decision, but it's not mine to make. I think they'd be more valuable as papered stock than not, though.

What a total shame. Is Days End taking them?

As many as they can Cori, but that's a lot of horses to place.

From what I understand, they're asking for volunteer foster homes.

Poor sweethearts! Even in their horrible shape, you can still the the gentleness and the well bred spirit in each of them. I sure hope they all find good homes <3

Some, but their resources are limited. They have quite a bit of horses there including those from WV abuse in horrible condition.

What can I say, folks... I could of understand 10 horses, 20, 30, but 100+ that's just beyond me.

I got some updates on my local forum:

"Days End is leading this, but Paradise Stables in Mt Airy took in 80, Gentle Giants has 10 I think. The Frederick paper is wrong stating they are all stallions but they have a contact to help.I think Days End is still under quarantine for strangles at the main farm, they took in 10 criticals to their farm near Hagerstown. "

I would disagree with that also. Why lessen the potentional use/value?

I don't get it; are they trying to give them a "fresh start" by shredding the papers? A lot of good money and time went into perfecting the breed for that, IMO.
