American Louve who we lovingly call LOVE is a 4 year old filly looking for her forever home! Love is a special horse who would love to be someone’s companion on the couch in their family room! On the ground she is kind and looks to you for direction. She is still young and cannot be pushed into something. She likes to take her time when you ask her something as she wants to get it right! On the lunge, she he is working on staying in a circle because all she wants to do is be by your side! Under saddle, Love needs to time to warm up. She can start off anxious but will settle in. She needs a patient hand at all times and knows when you are praising her! Walk, trot sessions are what seems to work best for her! Love is best suited for a companion home or light work with an advanced rider!
Stands in crossties ~ Gets along with mares and geldings ~ Stands for farrier ~ Loves mud!!
ADOPTION FEE POLICY
New Vocations’ adoption fees are intentionally set lower than the cost of buying most Thoroughbreds or Standardbreds through a private seller. In today’s market, it’s not unusual for horses coming right off the track to be listed for sale at a price between $2,000 and $5,000. At New Vocations, a fee is set for each horse that will ultimately help the horse find a home quickly. The program’s facilities are always at full capacity, which means the program cannot take in an additional horse until one is adopted. Adopters should be encouraged to know that by adopting a horse through New Vocations, they are actually helping two horses transition to careers outside of racing.
Additionally, adopters get great value for their money: The majority of the horses have been in the program for a minimum of 60 days. During that time, horses are rehabilitated (if needed), socialized with other horses, fully evaluated and worked with by a professional trainer. New Vocations fully discloses the history of each horse and provides all available medical records, many of which include X-ray and ultrasounds.
While adoption fees are low, it should be noted that the costs associated with the ongoing care and additional training for each horse post-adoption can be high. New Vocations hopes that by helping an adopter save money upfront that he or she will have more funds available to cover the ongoing costs of properly caring for a horse.
