I think that is fantastic!

I think that is a really good idea. I take Jack to the hospital to visit the elderly and those very sick, also to the senior homes. I see the smiles on the faces of those that remember Jack and she loves all the attention. Jack is very well behaved when visiting and it seems the sicker the individual is, the more calm she becomes. Animals sense that or smell the sickness, right Gail. Hugss n hullos to your family.

I always believed that it has been horses that saved my life. I am glad they are using them for other people too.

Gail,

Using horses, other animals, and music are awesome tools which help our military veteran's with therapy and recovery from their injuries.

Horses are the most intelligent and sensitive of all animals. I can see how these noble creatures could understand a Vet's needs.

Josie Two Shoes said...

Wonderful! It's been proven time and time again that animals can be the best form of therapy to be found. I love seeing that being put into action! :-)

Cool! They are such wonderful animals and require you to learn to be calm when working around then which helps to actually make you calm down. This is great!

Horses were nearly as important as food at one time. They SHOULD have a place in our society that never goes away. I think this is a wonderful idea.

TexWisGirl said...

The Business Phone Service is an advanced technology that has replaced the traditional means of connectivity. This technology involves the conversion of analog voice signals into digital packets and then transferring the packets over the internet network. This is what the technology is all about when over-simplified.
