More than fifty young children attended a read aloud activity sitting in the grassy shade at The Homer Glen Library as part of the library’s Summer Reading Celebration. A member of the Merciful Minis Therapy Team read “The Smallest Horse”, a story about a miniature pony who had been worried that she was not big enough to have important jobs. The story concludes with the young mini horse discovering that it too, can have an important job helping people feel better when they are going through a sad or difficult time.
Following the read aloud, The Smallest Horse, each young guest was invited to sit on a bale of straw and have their picture taken with a member of the Merciful Minis therapy horse team.
After each child enjoyed their special time with a mini, the horses walked into the trailer for a brief ride back to their barn, less than a mile away from the library.
The Merciful Minis will be traveling at the end of this week to meet seniors in an area assisted living center. Young or old, our little miniature therapy horses enjoy their special moments of sharing their unconditional love with those they meet.
