Fortunately they had wonderful response, and apparently are (were?) down to the last four horses:

Hope that those final four also found a home. From the info on the above website, all horses needed to be gone by Sunday February 1.

Glad they landed somewhere.
Now if only someone could help out the six matching white Arabs that some POS low-life circus dumped at Cranberry Sale Stable in NJ. Headed to Camelot auction tonight. There is a robust effort to save them taking place. I would love to know the name of the circus that dumped them.

The only positive thing to be said about this circus whoever they are, at least they didn't sell them directly to a meat buyer. This way at least there's hope.

Those horses look like they may have been a "Liberty" act, where a group of horses (usually pretty, matched white or grey) do tricks in unison while "at liberty" in a ring.
Whoever takes one home may find they have a horse who does some flashy tricks (quick turns, spins or rearing) with just visual signals.

I'm told that Arabian Rescue Mission bought them at last night's Cranbury Auction.

Ah....happy news indeed, thanks for the update Catalina. I hope that they all find great homes.

Nice bunch of horses there, they look wonderful, and I agree - they are probably trained up nicely. Why the 'circus' simply couldn't reach out to a horse group to find them homes, I will never understand.
