Miniature horses are like potato chips, you cannot have just one. 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. for the past 4 years, I’m always looking for ways to better our youth and to show the kids compassion and how important it is to give back to our communities.
As I have watched the smiles – both on the faces of our volunteers to the wide eyes and smiles of the patients, school children and public – listened to all the questions and stories that our 4-legged friends seem to provide, I knew we had to share our miniature horses, bunnies, goats, sheep, ducks and mini pigs with assisted living facilities, schools, day cares, and the public.
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.
