Tell him to look into having a rescue organization come in, explain their adoption procedures, policies, and adoption requirements, and if he agrees that their processes are suitable for him, then allow them to help him find suitable homes for them.

What sort of rescue organizations are there for animals like this?

Well, what I am saying is, equine rescues may have connections which may help the man trust who his horses go to.

All rescue organizations have procedures that they go through for potential adopters, policies which the potential adopter must follow, have references and whatnot.

Perhaps you can convince him to work with an equine rescue organization to help him get his horses placed. Rescue orgs have websites which they potentially could post his horses on, have connections with people who could or would be willing to take his horses in, and they would be bound to uphold the stipulations written in the adoption contract. I am sure a rescue would be willing to help, especially if the horses will be staying at his farm until adopted out.

He might have to donate a portion or all of the fee he could potentially get to the rescue though, which he may not wish to.

Or perhaps he could send his horses out with a rescue organization type contract. If you look at several equine rescue org. websites, you can get examples of the adoption contract.

The whole thing sounds a bit weird. If they are good, well bred, registered paints with good colour surely there are horse mad people around these animals who want nothing more than to work with them. Even horse crazy young women (girls) who are not in a position to own horses for themselves who could be handling them and working with them. When I was a kid there was a TB racing stable two farms away, but every weekend I would walk myself over there to be with those horses. The owner was happy to put me to work leading his horses around from pasture to stable or just cooling down. I don't know how much help I was but I was a sponge and learnt everything that I could and would have gone as far with those horses as I could.

My point is that surely there is a way for those horses to be handled enough to be sold/given away. It seems that whoever owns these horses is the problem. It sounds like a case of my way or no way.
