Tiny horse captures our hearts in a big way

A recent visitor to our Sherborne care home had a mane, tail and wore two sets of training shoes.

When Star the Miniature American Horse trotted into Abbey View she promptly stole the hearts of everyone she met, including resident Yvonne Willway (pictured), who grew up among horses in Devon. “I was so thrilled to meet her,” said Yvonne. “It was wonderful to be able to touch and nuzzle this beautiful creature.”

Star is one of three miniature horses owned by Lofty Therapy Horses based near Yeovil, Somerset. For her visit, she wore pink, trainer-style hoof covers so she could tour round residents’ rooms. “It was pretty hard not to fall in love with her,” said Home Manager Jo Ellis.
