Winston, the miniature horse at Old Friends at Ashton Grove, is a busy guy. He spends many of his evenings visiting with the human residents of Ashton Grove Senior Living Community, but he also makes time for the exercise program his vet recommended for him. Here he is taking an evening drive with his owner, Old Friends volunteer Christy Cassady. Sharing the evening with them are retired racehorses Daytona, Porfido, Massone, Secret Getaway and Ireland’s Eye.
Before you enjoy the vid, I want to say a word about Christy. Though technically a volunteer, she works as hard, and has shouldered as much responsibility, as the paid staff members. Besides taking care of Winston, she contributes significant labor and love to the care of the big horses. And that’s in addition to her day job. (Hope you don’t mind, Christy. I just had to give a shout out.) Old Friends is hugely fortunate in the quality and dedication of its volunteer workers!
