Miniature therapy horse sparks adorable reaction from young fan


Honor is a special little horse.

The one-year-old miniature horse is already a therapy horse and is training to become one of the smallest police horses in the U.S. Honor assists first responders and veterans and specializes in comforting children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. The horse is a member of Mini Horse Heroes, a charity that was previously known as the Kenneth F. Tietjen Memorial Foundation. Tietjen, 31, was a Port Authority police officer who died on 9/11.

Honor was training Monday in New York and let out a yawn, which triggered a little girl to do the same. The humorous moment was captured on camera. 

Sweet little Fiona was so interested in Honor yawning that she decided to play along! #stickoutyourtongue #yawn #copycat #funny

Art review: Strong, arresting work in Atlanta Photography Group show

Though the photographers in the Atlanta Photography Group’s juried exhibition “Portfolio 2017” are wildly, stylistically diverse and hail from all corners of the United States and abroad, in concert they work a kind of magic.
