Get to Know Atlas

Don’t let his rough and tumble looks fool you—this BLM mustang has a heart of pure gold. Atlas came to HSNT in need of patience, love and lots of groceries. He also needed his left eye removed. Now healthy, he’s ready to find his perfect person who will treat him right for the rest of his days. Atlas is young at heart and loves to run, buck and play in the pasture. He needs a herd mate who can keep up!

Atlas requires an intermediate handler but is super willing once he trusts you and has bonded closely with several staff members at the ranch. HSNT can’t say enough good things about this ruggedly handsome guy!

This adoptable horse is up-to-date on shots, Coggins, dental care, and is microchipped. Age is an estimate. Adoption fee is subject to change as skills advance.

Please fill out an interest in adoption form on HSNT’s website to learn more and schedule an appointment. When you adopt, you are not just giving a second chance to an animal in need; you are becoming a part of HSNT’s critical rescue work. Adoption fees help HSNT continue to assist more animals – and the people – that need a helping hand.

Atlas is located in Joshua, Texas, near Fort Worth.
