Halters should be heavy nylon, buckle on, without a panic snap on cheek piece. Lead rope should made of soft cotton or nylon.
Be-Nice rope halters are allowed and suggested for horses that are not very well halter trained.
After you have sent in your Adoption Request Form, you will get an e-mail back telling you whether or not you get the horse. If you do get that horse, you must reply with any e-mail that has Your Name/Horse's Name/Month of Adoption in the Subject line of your e-mail. In the body of the e-mail, you have an option of sending a short something for me to put on the Adoption page where your horse and your name will be put for that month to show that you adopted him or her. But, this is an option, you dont have to send anything in the body of the e-mail.
YOUR FACILITIES MAY BE INSPECTED PRIOR TO OR AFTER ADOPTION. ANIMALS MAY BE INSPECTED AT ANY TIME.
Now that you have read all of the above Rules and Regulations, you may now go to the Adoption Page and see if you would like to adopt any of the horses.
Rules and Regulations are subject to change without notice, I have the sole authority to add to or remove any of the above Rules and Regulations without warning.
