I’m not kidding. This boy is it.
He is this wise, spunky and lovely 20 plus year old gelding who has lived through about everything we can and cannot imagine.
I personally am wild over this horse.
Atlas was rescued from St. Albans, WV 3 years ago. He was a skeleton. They said he came from an auction.
I’ve always believed he is likely impeccably bred, as a life Arabian aficionado, but his papers and past are “Gone with the Wind.”
He has a lovely, strong Arab head, and nothing much about this wise fellow says Senior.
He is ring and trail riding ready for the advanced beginner. He does well in a bitless bridle, works well in a herd of mares or geldings.
He prefers to be pastured and will stock up if stalled long term.
His fee is $500 –
He adopts UTD on everything, including dental, farrier and vaccinations.
I’m in Hurricane WV

These kind of situations make me wish that all horses were required to be chipped as yearlings even if just to prove age and breeding and sometimes history. It would be heartbreaking to be able to know the horse went to slaughter when every slaughter house had to keep records but it would save people from pointlessly searching. On the other hand, horses could be tracked if they went through sales or if vets had to post when they scanned animals before treatment. Would cut down on some stealing also.
We chip and FB all of our rescues, and while it doesn’t tell us their history, it does keep them safe once with us and adopted out.
How big is Atlas? He sounds perfect!
Thanks! Interested, will follow up on adoption page.
