Our talented hoof trimmer, Rachel Chao, is also a speech pathologist for Easter Seals. Rachel has coordinated a monthly visit to the ranch for the clients that she works with. Tuesday was the second visit from Easter Seals and Rachel was able to provide permission to post the photos from this as well as last month's visit (hooray! I've been dying to share!).
It is such a pleasure to get to know a bit about each individual and to see them interact with the animals, as well as to watch the animals enjoying the attention. The horses get heavy eyes and their lips twitch with appreciation when the groomer gets just the right spot.
