R.I.P. Roly Poly (our beloved therapy horse)

After years of service and helping  many clients through hard times during our therapy sessions, we say goodbye to our beloved miniature horse, Roly.  May you cross the rainbow bridge and gallop through the green fields of horsie heaven with Cavalia, Mistery, Star, Cor de Amore, Maple, Breezy, Faith,  and the other 2  little filly’s we lost this year.

RIP Sweet Darla, our oldest and sweetest therapy goat loved by so many.

It is with a heavy heart I want to announce the passing of our oldest and sweetest therapy goat, Darla. For the last 20 years Darla has been giving all of herself and smiling at those who needed love and comfort. Darla has showed us an incredible will to live after she had her first stroke 4 years ago that left her unable to walk well. Her resiliance and strength and the love of many volunteers helped her learn to walk again. She was the love of many and will be sorely missed. RIP sweet girl……
