Miniature horses are like potato chips, you cannot have just one. Then after bringing home several, my husband asks, “Now what are you going to do with them?”
As the 4-H Leader for G.R.I.T.S. since 2009, I’m always looking for ways to better our youth, to show the kids compassion and how important it is to give back to our communities. So I thought, we should pack up our Lil’ Bit of Life mini favorites and bring this traveling zoo to groups that could use a lil’ bit of enjoyment. After witnessing the smiles from the attendees and listening to all the inspiring stories, I knew we had to continue offering this special service.
We visit assisted living facilities, schools, day cares… really anywhere we are needed. Whose “we?” Our traveling zoo includes our miniature horses, bunnies, goats, sheep, ducks and mini pigs! The Traveling Zoo can be designed to fit your specific needs. For example, if you want more animals or more time. Let us do all the work! Create your own farm, we will visit you, set up our corrals, share our animals, and clean it all up. You enjoy the smiles and many memories these animals leave.
Residents got the opportunity to see a mini donkey and mini horse up close, petting, feeding and learning all about them. But the real fun came from talking with these great volunteers and watching the excitement they brought to our home.” ~ Keisha Gist, Owner/Administrator – At Home Care Assisted Living Facility
“Tracey and Rod are amazing! They give back to the community and kids daily. They volunteer a lot of time to see others smile.” ~ Tracey C.
