Description

Unnamed Pulsatilla ’16 is a warm, ooey-gooey guy just like his barn name—“Quesadilla”—suggests! This affectionate 3-year-old, 16.1h son of Preakness Stakes winner Oxbow wants to be in your pocket all the time!

Quesadilla is currently enjoying some R&R from a splint bone fracture and LH suspensory desmitis, but he’s looking great and will start training soon! He should be suitable for lower-level disciplines and, at the moment, will do best with a confident, advanced rider.

As a special opportunity for qualified approved adopters, Quesadilla is available for adoption ahead of the normal schedule. Ideal adopters would be experienced with at least basic rehab protocols, have a good working relationship with their equine vet (so rehabilitation plans and checkups are kept up-to-date), and would be comfortable re-starting Quesadilla under saddle once he’s ready.

Please note that since we have not worked him under saddle yet, we cannot make any certifications as to him personality under tack. As always, qualified and approved adopters will have access to all of his veterinary records we have, including recent diagnostic imaging and his current/projected rehab plan.

His adoption fee will increase when he starts under saddle work shortly!

 

 

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.
