A Visit to Chateau Assisted Living
May 24, 2019
This has been a spring like no other with constant rain, thunderstorms, flooding, vehicle problems and limited hay supply. However, our little minis continue to carry on with their mission to share their unconditional love with those we meet.
At the request of the staff at Chateau our minis met more than twenty seniors waiting in wheelchairs outside of the beautiful facility in what fortunately turned out to be a warm and sunny early Friday afternoon.
Our beautiful little minis, Luna Rae and Hawk greeted each senior stopping for one on one time as the small therapy minis showed off their soft noses, warm coats, and tender eyes. They moved along the circle of seniors and many of the staff and seniors complimented the minis on their lovely purple ribbons attached to the horse’s long flowing tails. Picture taking was constant and stories were exchanged about the fond memories many experienced with loving animals in their childhood years.
When it was time to leave the minis and handlers were followed for a time by seniors in their chairs hoping for an extended time with the therapy horses.
With a broad smile on her face one senior remarked “I never thought I’d have a horse visit me”! There is so much joy in making connections with others. Well done Merciful Minis!
