Fw: [RC] Fw: Please forward - Free Arabian horses in KY - steelsidedown

From the owner...
"First I want to thank everyone for their offers of help and support and especially for the prayers for my husband and me.  Several asked about his terminal illness: he has just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has already spread to his liver and lungs. I have taken extended medical leave of absence from both my jobs and of course he is on medical leave from his.
I have received 144 emails at this writing about the horses that I posted to this venue about 36 hours ago.  All the horses are committed to good homes and over half of them were already picked up yesterday.  I met several new people who I hope will become new friends.
I have not had a chance to even read all the emails, let alone answer them, but PLEASE DO NOT CALL as the phone rang constantly yesterday and we already received 3 phone calls before 9 AM this morning.  Though I appreciate your interest in the horses, my husband needs his rest and the calls are disrupting that. I don't want to have to take my phone off the hook in case of an emergency with my 80-year-old mother-in-law or if my husband's medical clinic tries to reach us.
Also I understand that several people cross-posted my original email to various other sites. I only placed the email on two Yahoo! groups, The_Arabian_Horse_Classifieds and RAH. But I have heard from people who saw it on ablackhorse.com and various other places, and multiple "rescue" and "rehoming" organizations have been in touch.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ANYONE YOU FORWARDED THE ORIGINAL TO and call everyone you called in the first place to let them know the horses are gone.
Again, thanks to everyone for their help and support. Please keep us in your prayers.
