We were greeted by an eager crowd. Ready to learn about JJ, Dillon and Sir Snickers. After the presentation everyone was asked to line up so they could come up and pet each of our quiet horses and have photos taken.
I gave the presentation while volunteer Don Hendrix held JJ.
JJ is 8 years old, stands 17.2 hands tall and weighs approx. 1800 lbs
He eats about 50 lbs of food a day (and the children corrected me when I asked if he ate hamburgers?) and drinks about 30 gallons of ….yes- Water a day!
A blessing is: a volunteer who loves sharing smiles!
Diane Rockhill shares Dillon with the children and their families.
Volunteer Sherry Harris Hardy helps with making special moments.
Sharing her love for horses and SIr Snickers!
Just as we were getting ready to load JJ into his trailer a very upset woman asked if her elderly father could meet and pet our “Gentle Giant”. They had missed the presentation at the library and were very disappointed. Volunteer Diane stepped up to the job..parking lot pets and Smiles!
“Hey Snicks, we sure did have a nice time in the city today but there’s no place like home. Race ya back to the barn”
