Facts about Atticus

  • Breed: Paint/Pinto
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 11040675
Atticus is a paint horse who came to rescue from White County Operation Free at Last.   Atticus is 14hh, Paint, and was trained with Perry Neal for 45 days. Atticus has been lightly ridden since he left training, and is suitable for an experienced owner. Due to abnormal tooth wear, we cannot accurately predict his age, but we believe he is between 18 and 22 years old  Atticus has broken teeth in his mouth from what appears to be an old kick to his face; likely by a disgruntled missus who did not want to be as close of friends as Atticus wanted to be.  He maintains weight easily, and this is not affecting his ability to chew hay. As Atticus was a breeding stallion prior to being saved; in rescue he is being kept in an all gelding environment.   Atticus is a gelding now, and will make a great riding horse.  His only vice is occasionally not wanting to be caught for work, but he is kept in pasture without a halter on, and can be caught when needed.  We recommend a home for Atticus that will continue his work on catch and release in a smaller pasture environment. Atticus is a flashy horse, can be registered pinto, and is non-gaited. ❤️.  !!  His adoption fee is $400.   Safe Harbor Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non profit rescue based in Middle Tennessee.

About Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a dedicated team or horsemen (and horsewomen) who are seeking to fill the void for those horses that have no alternatives. Our Mission is as follows:

1) To be first responders and a resource to horses and livestock in cases of abuse and neglect. To provide those animals a safe harbor sanctuary where they will be treated with diginity and love as they prepare for new lifelong home.

2) To serve at risk and medically fragile children, as well as recovering veterans through structured equine experience opportunities.

3) To become a resource to low income families, unable to continue to care for their equine and livestock animals; providing food assistance when possible, or offering rescue rehoming services when possible.
