My story

2020 Thoroughbred Filly, 14.3h (growing)

Fairytale is currently out on foster learning how to be a good citizen. She stands well for farrier and vet. She can walk/trot in hand and is learning groundwork skills. She is calm with fly spray and putting on a fly mask. Fairytale learns quickly and tends to have a more dominant personality but is still rather agreeable.

Fairytale did have a procedure at the beginning of 2022 to remove some infected tissue in her RF coffin bone that was caused by chronic abscesses. She has recovered well and is back to being turned out in a large pasture. She will soon re-enter our training program.

Current Adoption Price: $600

** Please note that due to Fairytale’s young age, she will only be adopted to experienced trainers over the age of 14. **

Additional adoption info

Adoption Process KyEAC will not process any application unless the required photos, proof of residence and application fee are included. Once an application is received, KyEAC will begin the screening process. This usually takes about 2-3 days, depending upon how easy it is to make contact with your references. KyEAC will notify you when your application has been approved and you may then make an appointment with KyEAC to visit the equine(s) you are interested in adopting. All adopters must sign an Equine Adoption and Placement Agreement and pay the adoption fee before the equine leaves KyEAC. Adopters are responsible for transportation arrangements and costs at the time of the adoption and in the event of return. After the Equine Adoption and Placement Agreement is signed, you must pick up the equine from KyEAC within 5 days from the date on the Agreement. Adoption fees are non-refundable. Terms of the Equine Adoption and Placement Agreement The equine may not be raced, bred, sold, given away, assigned or disposed of, nor may any interest in the equine be transferred. The Adopter may only release the equine from his/her care to KyEAC for one year. Transportation arrangements and costs are the responsibility of the adopter at the time of placement and in the event of return. KyEAC has the right to visit the property where the equine resides. If, in the sole discretion of KyEAC, it is determined that the living arrangements and/or care of the equine are inadequate or inappropriate, KyEAC reserves the right to seize and re-take possession of the equine. If the Adopter changes the location of the equine or changes the equine's veterinarian, KyEAC must be provided with the new stabling and veterinarian information within 30 days of said change. In addition, the Adopter agrees to provide KyEAC with any change in his/her address within 30 days of said change. The Adopter agrees to forward a veterinarian's brief statement of the adopted equine's residence, general condition, weight, teeth and hoof condition (a brief health check form will be provided by KyEAC for this purpose twice a year). This form is to be returned to KyEAC six months from the date of adoption and on the one year anniversary of the adoption date. Any equine returned to KyEAC must possess a current negative coggins and health certificate, which is the responsibility of the Adopter to provide.
