Our ultimate goal here at Hoof & Souls is for each horse to find an appropriate, hopefully permanent, placement with a person that will provide quality care, love, and time with the horse. We desire to match each horse with an adoptive home that is the best “fit”. We want to ensure that the horse will have adequate space, quality feed, appropriate shelter, necessary medical care, companion animals, attention, and ongoing training, if needed. Horses are a lot of work, and require a lot of time, and a lot of money. Potential adopters need to understand the time and financial commitment that will be required to own an Easy R horse.
We have an application process that starts with a paper application, including a criminal history check. The next step is a property inspection approval. At that point, the staff will thoroughly explain all the procedures and expectations that would be required for adoption. Each horse has an adoption fee based on its age, physical condition, and training. Not everyone who applies to adopt a horse from Hoof & Souls will be approved. These decisions are always made in the best interest of the equine. If you are interested in knowing more about any of the horses up for adoption, or the adoption process, please contact Hoof & Souls @ 972-977-7663.
Some horses will probably always be residents here at Hoof & Souls. These are the horses that have a medical condition that might be too costly or time-intensive for an adoptive home; are not amenable to training for some reason, making them unpredictable/unsafe for an adoptive home.
Hoof & Souls also has a foster program in which area residents foster one or more of the horses until they become adopted. There are several different fostering options, so if you are interested in fostering a horse for Hoof & Souls, please contact us. There is an application process and property inspection required for this program also. Foster parents often become adoptive parents because they become too attached to the horses to let them go to another home!
