Merciful Minis were the celebrated guests at O’Neill Middle School in Downers Grove. Following a week long of storms and extremely hot humid weather, today’s temperature could not have been better.
The minis relaxed in the school’s shaded courtyard as middle school students and staff came to meet the little boys. Sitting on a bale of straw, the students were able to get close to the horses and learn more about the care of the animals and the unique attributes of a therapy mini.
Throughout each visit our minis develop greater self confidence in strange and unique surroundings. Our volunteers and handlers learn a lot as well and, best of all, we continue to meet awesome people dedicated to helping others and improving our world.
