"Swing" is a new horse at ARK Farms. She was donated by Talana Vogel as a therapeutic animal to assist with our re-empowerment programs at the farm, and wow is she wonderful! Not only is she beautiful, but she is very responsive to direction, which is really helpful for our participants. We are working with her to learn the new life she has at ARK Farms. It is a very different world from being a show horse and a winning Hunter/Jumper and Dressage horse.
The first time she saw the ducks and chickens moving on the ground around her I could almost imagine her saying "Hey Mom, why is the ground moving?" She has become more used to them, though she still yields to the miniature donkeys as if they were royals (maybe they are). Come on an open farm day and see this new lovely horse. She loves to give kisses and snuggles. So sweet!
