Cannubi, (“Noobi”/“Noob”/ “Noodle”) is VERY talented youngster! He has a cool demeanor and is always happy to see people, small animals, other horses etc. Though he can be a little cowardly (“chicken Noodle”) at times, he is gaining confidence day-by-day, whether that be in standing like a champion on the crossties, or in marching confidently over ground poles. He will even hop over small crossrails when led over them from the ground!
In turnout, he has been with both geldings and mares, and he could not be sweeter with both! He loves his time outside, and really enjoys playing with a buddy—always gently though, as he is definitely a submissive.
Under saddle, this guy has fantastic natural carriage and balance, especially for his age. His gaits are smooth and his riding disposition is easy- breezy. He would do best with an advanced rider given his young age, so that he can continue to develop into the amazing mount that he is already turning into. He is unraced and retired sound.
Did we mention that his sire is Tizway?! Cannubi is already turning out to be a talented hunk of a horse, just like his Dad!
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.
