Description

Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind mare! Her exquisite liver chestnut color with four white bobby socks make Cajun Dame stand out!

Plus, because she’s incredibly easy to ride with three lovely gaits and a can-do attitude, this lovely mare is suitable for pretty much anyone to bring along for a lower-level sport career.

This classy mare suffered an injury on the track and her connections elected to bring her back like the BIONIC WOMAN with the aid of some jewelry—two screws in her left ankle, to be exact, likely due to a lateral condylar fracture. “Cajun” has raced numerous times and been in the money since the surgery, so don’t let a little jewelry scare you off! 

Cajun Dame is a class act all around, and anyone who takes a chance on her will reap the benefits of a truly kind, giving, and beautiful horse.

Easy to be around, good to handle, and incredibly easy on the eyes, Cajun Dame is the Grace Kelly of mares. Don’t pass this utterly unforgettable horse up!

 

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, we set a fee that will ultimately help each horse find a home quickly. The program’s facilities are always at full capacity, which means we 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 in work with a professional trainer. New Vocations fully discloses each horse’s history and provides all available medical records, many of which include X-ray and ultrasounds.

While adoption fees are low, it should be noted that costs associated with ongoing care and additional training for each horse after adoption can be high. New Vocations hopes that by helping an adopter save money upfront, he or she will have more funds available to cover the continuing costs of properly caring for a horse.
