Half Price Horses!

Yes, you heard me correctly, half price horses.  During the month of December you can adopt an OTTB (Off the Track Thoroughbred), meaning a horse that raced, for 50% off through New Vocations, a non-profit that helps horses from the track find new homes and new lives after racing.

The horses are not expensive to begin with, but this organization is simply the best.  They bring in horses off the track, evaluate them, have them vetted, determine their best possible use, get them in work and then markets them to people like us.  It is a wonderful organization and needs support from us horse lovers to keep this process going.  Think how many lovely horses have had new lives through their efforts!

Check their web site regularly as the horses are typically not available very long.  You must fill out an adoption application and get "approved."  I would encourage you to submit an application if you even think you are wanting to adopt an OTTB as the good ones are gone.  Here are a few of the adorable horses currently up for adoption.

Dream Venture is in PA and can be yours for $350.  He looks like a teddy bear.

Now Certain is a 3-year old filly that has much potential.  She is priced now at only $300 and is also in Pennsylvania.  Go to http://www.horseadoption.com/ to see more photos.

Too Much Attitude is a 3-year old filly who suffered a knee injury so she likely won't be a hunter-jumper but can be ridden and would also make a great companion or trail horse.  She is priced very reasonably as well.

Can you think of a better Christmas present? A lovely new horse who needs a new home badly and who wants to cared for?  Better get that application in right away!
