Research has proven that animals can have a positive healing effect on humans, and there’s nothing sweeter than seeing an animal provide comfort and love to sick children.
At Our Children’s House at Baylor, a team of little horses brings their special love where it is needed most. In the video below, Tristan, one of the tiny ponies, visits a boy named Logan who’d been undergoing chemotherapy.
Imagine Logan’s delight when an adorable mini horse walked into his hospital room. Although the boy was frail, the horse seemed to know that Logan needed a special touch to let him know that everything would be OK.
The pony lightly nudges the little boy’s feet. It is so beautiful to see the animal establish a deeper rapport with his new human pal. What a lovely opportunity for the ponies to have the interaction and the children to have their company.
