Do You Believe God uses Horses To Help People?
Our previous post was about how God uses dogs to help people, but does God use horses to help people? Watch this heart warming video from CBN about a pony who brings joy to the elderly and you decide.
Meet Sampson The Shetland Pony
Carol Wingertner’s Shetland pony Sampson is a therapy pet who brings smiles to New Jersey nursing home residents in a rather unexpected way — he kisses them.
Once a week, Wingertner, who’s a horse trainer, takes 300-pound Sampson to visit nursing homes in Hamilton, N.J. He walks around quietly – careful not to bump into anyone – and gives a gentle kiss to anyone who asks.
Sampson is not the usual therapy pet, but nursing home residents can’t help but smile when he comes to visit.
“I love to pet him,” resident Carmella Dileo said. “I’m 95 years old, and I remember petting a horse as a kid. And I really enjoy his visit here and that he kissed me”
Nursing home administrators say that Sampson does wonders for the patients and that everyone looks forward to his visits.
Horses Have Proven To Help People
This is a wonderful story. There are many stories of horses helping people. Horses have helped humans in many ways actually. I have worked with the elderly most of my nursing career. Animals can bring a lot of joy to them. I always have appreciated people who take the time to train their pets and take the time to bring them to visit the elderly. Animals can bring a lot of smiles and joy.
