Adoption Event June 29th 2013: Four Gentle, Seasoned, Job-Ready Horses!

Hey guys!

Well this project has been going on two years now and very soon I'll be offering my four horses up for public adoption. What exactly do I mean by adoption? In a nutshell I mean that I'm not setting prices. There's going to be a silent auction with a donation amount suggested for each horse, and after entertaining all offers I'll be accepting the best ones not only in terms of price, but on the suitability of the match for each animal.

The terms will be no different than a regular sale, in that once the deal is made you will own these very nice horses with no reservations. I will however be offering a 30-day return guarantee as well as offering continued support in the form of help with care and training, which will be available upon request. I've also decided to offer re-placement assistance for the lifetime of each animal. My priority in doing this is that my horses go to places where their individual abilities will have real value to someone else. I'm in it for the long haul with each of them, as little or as much as the adopter chooses to take advantage of.

Each horse has had extensive work over the past year and has been seasoned by a variety of experiences including living out in the hills, groundwork, being roped off of, working other horses, and riding out on the trails. Some are hotter and more athletic, others more laid back. I have a range of types and personalities in my cavvy.

This is just the beginning of their story. Over the next 8 weeks I'll be updating my blog as well as here if there's an interest with horse bios, stories, training updates and more. Then on June 29th we'll hold a Barbeque in Half Moon Bay where I'll accept offers not only locally, but FROM EVERYWHERE! That's right. If the fit is good and you're able to transport the horse, I'm willing to ship them anywhere.

I'll answer any questions that anyone has. Thanks for reading! -Ian

Thanks Karen. Yeah that gelding is one of those natural athletes that'll also buck you off if you're not careful! I considered not showing that part, but then decided that it was important to. I know that someone out there is going to appreciate that kind of horse!

Someone should make a full length movie out of that, it's beautiful, and has that "feel good" part to it.
