Get to Know Holly

Are you looking for a cute little mare who’s as sweet as she is adorable? Holly is your girl! This pocket-sized gal is looking for a new family to give her all the love and attention she’s been missing. From the moment Holly arrived at HSNT, she has been super friendly and shown she loves spending time with people. HSNT doesn’t know much about her past, but with her fantastic personality, she will make a special addition to any pasture. Due to birth defects found upon x-ray of her next, Holly is not going to be rideable, but she still has a lot of life and love to give in many other ways! Holly is approximately 14 hands tall. This horse is up-to-date on shots, Coggins and dental care and is microchipped. Age is an estimate. Adoption fee is subject to change as skills change.

Please fill out an interest in adoption form 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. Thank you for supporting the animals in our community! This horse is located in Joshua, Texas.
