Sterling's Story...
Sterling is a 9 year old registered Thoroughbred. She is an ex-racehorse with a lip tatoo, so we know she is broke to ride. We will be evaluating her level of riding soon. We acquired Sterling with 14 other horses from a court ordered seizure in Denton County. Sterling has a small chip on the end of her coffin bone. The veterinarian recommends normal riding for her, but not competitive riding. The problem should take care of itself, but only time will tell. She is a little sensitive on the soles of her front hooves, so we put front shoes on her to help alleviate pressure on the soles.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sterling, a Sugar Land Thoroughbred was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Thoroughbred for sale in Sugar Land, or seeking a Thoroughbred from a breeder in Sugar Land.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sugar Land already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Sugar Land breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Thoroughbred breeders who help with Thoroughbred rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sugar Land paves the way for another one to be saved.
