Big'un's Story...
"Big'un" is a 2011 Nurse Mare orphan. You can read more about their story on their page. Big'un is the oldest and biggest nurse mare foal of the bunch with a January 2011 birthdate.

Big'un will be available for adoption in late July/August 2011 to make sure all health issues have been resolved and after he is gelded. As of this writing (July 2011), he is learning to be halter-broke and how to pick up his feet.

Stay up to date on "Big'un's" progress on his updates page.

Big'un is looking for an adopter as well as a sponsor at $100/mo to sustain him until he's old enough to go to her forever home! Big'un's adoption fee is $500 to cover his $350 gelding plus probably thousands in milk replacer and vet bills.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Big'un, 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.
