Well, after I put my post up on CL re: the "original Arab" to see if I could find the poster's of the ad, the response was CRAZY!
FIRST, almost immediately, I received a call from a woman who offered me like literally NINE CONTACT HORSE owners! She knows tons of people and wants to help me find a horse ...not sure HOW to take it...she's apparently legit, as a local well known vet here works with her and has for 30+ years. She also works with a few rescues, incl the one where I volunteer/ed/will again now that I'm starting new job! Anyway, I've gotta think on lots of info SHE gave me....
Then, I literally have gotten emails all day, "Hello, we don't own the 'Beautiful Arabian', but have a horse for sale... and...AND...." (ITS NUTS! WHO KNEW so many folks are soooo desperate to sell. Actually, it's very sad, because I get the feeling most of these don't WANT TO SELL.)
Anyhow, need to process all of this, and ALL of these horses... getting a bit overwhelming! I think for now, I'm going to systematically eliminate or keep in each horse listed thus far...and start an actual diary with each horse's pic, pros/cons, & vital statistics! (plus of course owner contact info & price)!
OK, but FIRST, MUST get some sleep! G'night guys!! ;0)
