Ace's Info...

Ace's Story...
Ace was born with relaxed tendons in his pasterns, which is a common condition that is usually grown out of with no significant issues. Our farrier has told us that it's possible Ace may need to be shod with shoes 1 size to large as a riding horse but with that accommodation he's expected to be sound for all uses. He is an appaloosa and it's not at all uncommon for rather plain foals to develop the loud appaloosa markings as they grow and shed out. His mother got her spots when she was a year old and his father is very loudly marked. Ace's adoption fee is $500 and he can go home as soon as he is weaned and gelded this fall. Make sure to get your application in for this nice young man.

Adopters must be 21 or older, if you are under 18, please have a parent contact us as our adoption agreement is a legal agreement which must be made with an adult. We do welcome volunteers of any age, those under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ace, a Dewey Appaloosa was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Appaloosa for sale in Dewey, or seeking a Appaloosa 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 Appaloosa breeders who help with Appaloosa rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Dewey paves the way for another one to be saved.
