Helping hooves for the disabled and distraught

hi readers,

here is a link to information on recent court rulings which have helped to legitimatize the use of Emotional Support Animals for persons with problems like agoraphobia and post-traumatic stress disorder. and here is a great link to a page featuring horses in sneakers.

I just found out today that mini horses have been enlisted for many years to help the visually impaired, since their helping abilities are more effective in some ways when compared with those of man's best friend. for example, mini horses have a range of vision of 350 degrees, unlike dogs. mini horses live longer than dogs and they have excellent memories, giving them an added advantage when it comes to remembering hazards and so forth. (and yes, they can be housebroken!)

bye, mata ne, thanks for reading. -Suzy
