Iron Mast is by Mizzen Mast out of Dance Lesson. He is like his mother, a true dancer. He is still on turn out and has been both free lunged and lunged a few times. Iron has a true dancer’s body with great extensions at the trot. Absolutely an exceptional dressage prospect. He’s currently 16 hands but butt high, which means he probably has some growing left to do! A gorgeous head with soft kind eye and an uphill build. Brave and loves to play with his turn out buddy and older playful gelding. Iron is a goofy, young and good looking boy looking for the right dance partner to teach him all the dressage movements. Don’t miss out on Iron Mast! We have not started training him for a second career yet and he is available for adoption to restart your way. Iron Mast is RRP Thoroughbred Makeover eligible.
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.
