Any person desiring to adopt a horse should consider the many aspects of horse ownership before
making a final decision. Adopting a horse is a very large commitment and one not to be taken lightly. The expenses of shelter,
medical care, rehabilitation, feed and supplements, farrier costs, tack and equipment, liability insurance
and a lifetime placement can become quite costly. But most of all they need your constant love, attention,
understanding, patience, and guidance which will demand a large amount of your time.
Our horses at Circle F are deemed ready for adoption but we cannot guarantee what kind of animal you
will get. Most will have some presenting issue. Rarely do we get the ideal bombproof horse, in perfect
health, great with kids, which never spooks. Each horse reacts differently to different people. Often we
donít have all the background we would like on a horse. We are looking for people with patience and
understanding who want to give a horse a home and a second chance because of the fate they would
have suffered had they not been acquired by Circle F while giving us a chance to rescue another.
Circle F horses are predominantly adopted out as companion horses to another horse or for light riding
together with companionship.
Persons wishing to adopt a horse and who show interest in one of our horses are invited to come
for a visit. Should their interest be such that they wish to pursue adoption they fill out an Adoption Application Form and
we visit their place to check out suitability for placement. If all seems appropriate an Adoption Contract is signed.
Circle F will be in occasional contact with the placement during the first 3-6 months
to assure all is going well. After this period, a Permanent Placement Amendment A is signed and full ownership of the horse goes to the adopter.
