We spent the most of our mornings and evenings training our horses (in particular, our unicorns) at the farm. Although they are usually a muddy mess, we have such a great time getting them out and working with them. Dallas is a true country boy at heart, and Denver always poses for the camera.
Denver & Dallas are often found at Miami University during midterms or finals, often with colored manes and unicorn horns. Students go nuts. When Denver & Dallas "strut their stuff" students will point, stare and beg their friends to come see us. The best part, many of these students laugh, smile, and relieve some stress while petting our ittybittyhorses.
We've talked with many students at Miami who explain their fears of horses, but don't feel the same intimidation with our horses. Others mention our visits are the highlight of their week. The best stories are from those that tell stories of struggles during the semester and feel a renewed energy to finish strong because of the joy they experienced when interacting with our mini horses.
Our therapy unicorns create magical memories, especially for this sweet young girl. Her grandfather made her a promise years ago, and during this visit we were able to help him keep that promise. She was thrilled to meet a real unicorn and spend time petting, loving and walking with Denver. Her smile was contagious and her love of our unicorn was quite apparent. There is something truly magical when people of all ages meet our unicorns, and we are thrilled to be able to bring so much joy to our visits with these wonderful horses.
Stay tuned….. one of our newest therapy candidates shows promising signs to be a therapy unicorn. Her sweet personality and enjoyment of human interaction has made her therapy training fly by. Keep an eye out for a new unicorn on the block, Kallie. She has already become a princess here at the farm, and will soon be a favorite for visits as well.
