Horses are getting homes!!!

Sorry for the delay.  Over the past two weeks it has been extremely busy time for New Vocations.  Gulfstream Park and the Horse Society Magazine hosted an after party at the Florida Derby.  Funds raised will go towards the Lexington expansion.  Then 4 days later we set up our booth at the Columbus Equine Affaire.  We were able to sell over $5,000 in  NV clothing and books.  We also had a seminar on Racehorse Rehabilitation and Adoption which was well attended.  It was nice to visit with so many of our adopters as well as meet potential adopters.  

At the barn there has been a revolving door of horses coming and going.  The following horses came into the program in the last two weeks:  Snafu, Hallzak, All By Chance, Nothintoit, Saintly Friend, Willie Wiggins, Chance Kyl, and Runway Sweetie.  And then the following were adopted: Hallzak and Wager went to their new home in Hilliard, Ohio to be pleaure horses.  Saintly Friend was adopted and went to SE Ohio to be a sporthorse broodmare.  Leah was adopted to a student in Kentucky to become a hunter jumper.   Nothingtoit went on to her new home in Mt Gilead, Ohio.

We will be evaluating the following horses over the weekend and will post their information early next week on our website.

Today we had two different adopters come out to view horses and both adopted horses.  Silk Weapon was adopted and will be heading to Michigan in a couple days. Mulholland who never made it to our website will be leaving on Friday and going about 10 miles up the road to Sweet Clover Farm.

All of the Marysville staff will be going to Beulah Park tomorrow to evaluate horses that are in need of retirement.  We will keep everyone posted on what we find.  In the meantime please consider the horses we currently have on our website.  They are all coming along well and anyone who has been through our application process is welcome to call and set up a time to see them.

  1. I purchased a copy of Anna’s book at Ohio’s Equine Affaire and LOVE IT!! What a nice compilation of very useful information! I especially love the sections that give tips on purchasing an OTTB, whether from the trainer or from an organization like New Vocations. It is also great to see that so many horses found homes in the last few weeks! Great work! 🙂
