a Therapist

Look at that face!
This is one of the registered miniature donkeys that lives at Butternut Ridge Farm. These lovable little guys are used for therapy with special needs children, at nursing homes and in hospitals. This is a free program, run by the Rev. Dr. Kenneth Parker in Peru, NY. Three of these little ones traveled to Newtown, CT to offer comfort to that community after the tragic school shooting, walking right in to classrooms to be with the children.

Donkeys are great healers, and oh so adorable.
