Getting my horses to a good home

I've spent a large part of my life and my health joyfully making sure my horses are healthy and well cared for.  It became unreasonable, given the health part of that, to continue to try to keep them all, so I planned to find them each good homes with the proceeds from the sale of my home and small agreage, once it was listed and sold.  However, my husband filed for divorce and no longer wants the expense and physical burden of the horses, I am 1200 miles away, and my property hasn't sold.

I found a good home for the horses, but we are stuck, for the moment, because of the requirements for transporting them across state lines.  They need to be vetted and have their coggins tests done in order to get their travel papers, and in the meantime they need to eat.  My husband is not willing to cover the expense of hay, and has sought and won the right to euthanize them by askig for a rushed court order.  I am desperate to give them the chance to have the life they deserve, and that means they will need enough hay to keep them fed until the vet work is completed and they are picked up by their new people.  The results of the coggins test will take 10 days, and we still have to schedule and coordinate the farm call.   So, we'll likely need 2-3 weeks' worth of hay - in a drought leveraged area.

Please help make this happen.  I would not ask if I could find any other way.
