Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

The Horse and Boy

20 Dec 2014I recently saw this video that I would like to share with you today. Many people know that animals have special senses and they understand when people need more patience and understanding.

For example, one of my dogs, Pupa, knows that I cannot chase her around like my husband does and so she pretends to run away from me and then turns around and tackles me, putting her front paws up on my shoulders and giving me licks. She is very enthusiastic about it ands it is a lot of fun!

This beautiful video, that you can watch here:
Shows a boy with special needs showing affection to a horse and how the horse gently lets him smell him, lean into him and hug him.

The horse is just brilliant at knowing what to do instinctively and the emotion is just beautiful.
