Atticus is part of our “A Pony for Christmas Promotion”.  Apply to adopt before 12/31/17 and take home Atticus with his adoption fee waived–PLUS one bag of Tribute Kalm Ultra will be included with his adoption!!

This little guy had over a month of training with Perry Neal, and will make a phenomenal pasture ornament or riding pony for an experienced owner.

Do you need some eye candy in your pasture? #Atticus needs a farm to call his own. He’ll do best as an only horse where he can bond with his owner, and learn to trust completely. He has been trained to be broke to ride. He has been ridden in a big open area. He has been ridden around cows–but his training came late in life, and he’s not the easiest horse to work with. An ideal for #Atticus is where he doesn’t need to compete for attention; where he can be worked with gently and calmly to bond with a human being. He would love a home where his fancy color is appreciated and where he can get brushed, given treats, and not have to figure out herd dynamics at feeding time. Atticus does not need a home with other horses–in fact, our idea for him would be a home that only wants one horse to love on, and doesn’t have interest in riding, or is an experienced rider able to work with an older green horse.

Atticus did have 45 days of training with Perry Neal and you can see video of him under saddle below.

If this sounds like you, then apply to adopt! Atticus’ fee has been waived, so you can bring this beauty home to bond with without any up front costs. He is current on shots and coggins. #Adopt #SafeHarbor

About his name:  Atticus is named for Atticus Finch from Harper Lee’s acclaimed novel, To Kill a Mockingbird.  Atticus is a lawyer and resident of the fictional Maycomb County, Alabama, and the father of Jeremy “Jem” Finch and Jean Louise “Scout” Finch. Lee based the character on her own father who, like Atticus, represented black defendants in a highly publicized criminal trial.  Though a fictional character, Atticus Finch is reported to have had a lasting impact on the legal profession with even a federal judge recognizing him in trials as highly publicized as the Timothy McVeigh trial.  The line “If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it”,  is spoken by Finch in both the novel and film. Safe Harbor Sanctuary is a 501(c)3 non profit rescue based in Middle Tennessee.
