Twiggy's Story...
Twiggy (formerly known as "Baldie") is a 2011 Nurse Mare orphan. You can read more about their story on their page. She came in with horrible urine burns and a fungal infection that had taken most of the hair on her face and some spots on her body as well. She was our youngest nurse mare foal and not one we'd planned on, but she clearly wasn't doing well and we couldn't leave her behind!

Twiggy's hair has grown in and she is a healthy and lovely young lady. She will be available for adoption in November 2011. As of this writing (July 2011), she is learning to be halter-broke and how to pick up her feet.
July 2014: Twiggy has been started undersaddle and is doing quite well. She is standing 15 hands at 3 years old. Twiggy has been ridden indoors and outdoors and crosses water like a champ!

Stay up to date on Twiggy's progress on her updates page.

Baldie is looking for an adopter as well as a sponsor at $100/mo to sustain her until she's old enough to go to her forever home! Baldie's adoption fee is $500.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Dewey 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 Dewey 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 Quarterhorse breeders who help with Quarterhorse rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Dewey paves the way for another one to be saved.
