This weekend we are traveling to a miniature horse farm in Gallatin. I have always loved all things miniature since i was a kid and these animals really intrigue me. The owners of the farm have a ministry where they take the horses into hospitals, retirement homes, and schools for people and kids to love on and receive love from these animals. it's a sort of therapy i guess. They take volunteers to help get the animals ready before their outings and i am considering helping. Especially since my hours got cut back at work i have the time.
I love the idea of volunteering but am not always the best at following through. I once volunteered at a pet shelter that only took in puppies and kittens. I thought for sure it would be like heaven and it was more like H E double hockey sticks. The non stop yapping. The smell-you can't even imagine and the cleaning of cages all day long.
Do you have any positive or negative stories about volunteering?
