Why do you want to foster?
Do you take lessons, attend clinics or pursue continuing horsemanship education?
Though foster input on horse personality and skill set it valued very much, fosters have no control of when and to whom the horses may be adopted to, is this something you will be ok with?
Describe Your Boarding Facility or Personal Farm Layout. Acres, Type of Fence, Type of Shelter. Explain whether the equine would be stalled or on turn out. If the equine will be stalled, how often and how many hours will they be turned out daily? Note: (loose barbed wire or barbed wire in feed congregation areas is not typically accepted) *
Are you okay with following and learning our care and handling protocols?
HOP requires a foster cover hay and grain, but we can, if needed, cover farrier cost. We cover vet costs. Is this affordable for you? All care and foster costs can be tax deductible for the foster.
Do you understand a foster does not have first right to adopt a horse if there is an approved application in on the horse and the foster has not already expressed intent to adopt, and that this can sometimes be a conflict for fosters who care about their horses?
If the foster isn't a good fit for your farm, are you willing to try another foster?
Do you understand fosters often are moved around for training, better situation for their needs and so forth, so you may get attached and find the horse is with you just a short period of time?
