Additional information about our rehoming policies and practices:
Adoption Guidelines: Since all adoptions require a farm visit, we only adopt out within about a three hour radius from Dorset, VT. Please do a map check from your property to Dorset, VT to see if you are within that range. This range is a little flexible, but not by much. Each horse we adopt out must have an equine companion at their new home to be turned out with. Horses are herd animals and are happiest with a buddy. The horse must have access to a clean three sided run-in shed or stall 24/7, blocking the prevailing winds and protecting them from the weather. The horse must always have access to a clean water trough that is heated in the winter. We require the adopted horse stay up to date on these basic vaccines: Eastern/Western Encephalitis, Tetanus, Rabies, Influenza and Rhino. We require that the adopted horse stays up to date with regular feet trimming (6-10 weeks depending on the time of year), deworming (minimum of 4 times per year), and annual dental care. The adopted horse must have a minimum of 8 hours of turn out daily. The adopted horse must have a minimum of 1 acre of pasture for a full size horse(s) and a minimum of ΒΌ acre for a miniature horse(s). Although it is not required, we do encourage all perspective adopters to have their own vet do a pre-purchase exam.
