Being smaller doesn’t necessarily mean cuter, but when you’re a horse it certainly seems to help.
In this post, we saw a little boy and his pony best friend, who doesn’t even appear real, she’s so pint-sized. This time around we meet a rescued miniature horse who is destined to be the best therapy animal around,, because it’s impossible not to be happy when you see this little sweetheart.
Rescued from an auction in Lebanon, PA, there wasn’t much hope for “Vinnie the Mini” before heroes found him. He was malnourished and sick. Vinnie was cast aside and ignored by everyone. When Vinnie was rescued, nothing was clear except that his life was guaranteed to be better than the terrifying alternative.
Once Vinnie’s health was restored, thanks to his new owners, it was clear that all the joy that Vinnie brings people can be put to good use. That’s when they decided to get Vinnie certified as a therapy horse to help sick adults and children who struggle from physical, psychological or emotional disabilities with mini therapy horses.
Vinnie the Mini might be small, but something tells me this little one is going to bring a lot of big, big smiles to some much-deserved faces in the near future!
