King family seeks urgent horse care on Whidbey Island

The King family of South Whidbey is searching for a home for its two horses.

Having learned one of their children has leukemia, the family is in the process of moving to Seattle to be near Children’s Hospital for at least the next six months.

The Kings are looking for someone to take their 20-year-old quarter horse/Arabian, Ben, and a 21-year-old Andalusian stallion, Fino.

The horses have been ridden primarily on trails. They come with tack and some feed. Both are in good health and fed an organic diet.

Neither has shoes.

The Kings also have two cats and seven chickens in need of new home.
