This is Magic, a mini horse who works for Gentle Carousel, a non-profit volunteer group based in Florida. Gentle Carousel raises and trains mini horses, who can be taken indoors and can go into hospitals to visit suffering patients. Over the years, Gentle Carousel’s horses have visited children suffering from cancer and comforted the victims of school shootings. They’ve helped elderly patients in nursing homes and met wounded veterans and police officers. Magic and her sister Valor have even been made honorary sheriff’s deputies for their work with the community.
This is just one example of the help these little horses can give. Gentle Carousel has expanded over the years. In addition to their base in Florida, they now have bases in California and New York and even one in Greece. These horses might be little, but they are filling a big need!
