A special moment from Personal Ponies volunteer in Rhode Island.
"These are pics of an absolutely beautiful, brave, happy little 6 yr
old girl named Bella. She was meeting OREO for the first time.
Bella is blind and has had 10 surgeries. She is a joy to talk to
and be around and she and OREO hit it off like long lost friends .
When the little girl first approached Oreo, she could not
take her hands off him, nor stop smiling. I was speechless, just
something about the way she could not take her hands off him......"
From Donnis, State Director of Idaho
“Classy is the pony I placed with Dusty. They are doing so well. Classy is a people pony and likes to hang out with humans more than with ponies. I usually do not place one pony but this is different. Classy has become a service animal for Dusty. Dusty lives about four blocks from Wal-Mart and they have opened their doors for her to come in with Classy. They said she was welcome anytime to bring her in. Classy is very well behaved. The lady that takes pictures in Wal-Mart took Dusty and Classy into the Studio and took pictures of her with Classy. A man came up to Dusty in a rush with his cart making lots of noise. Classy stepped in from of Dusty and put her head in her lap as to protect her from the man and his cart. Once he left, Classy went back in her place by the side of her chair. Classy had been in several placement homes before but this seems to be her job now and she knows it! Classy and Dusty are doing a great job promoting Personal Ponies in our area. I just had to share. In a short three weeks one of our ponies has already changed someone’s life. Dusty now has reason to live. This is what keeps me doing what I do with Personal Ponies.”
