Thank you to One Acre Farm to share this amazing story.
It is heartbreaking and left me in tears when I read it.Read More...
Here at One Acre Farm TX, we have been seeing a new friend, Mark, a non-verbal 8 yr old with Down's Syndrome. The first time at the farm, he was apprehensive about seeing the animals. While his siblings went into the petting area and interacted with the goats, chickens, turkeys, and mini horse, Mark chose to stand outside the fence and watch.
Over the next several weeks of weekly visits, he began getting closer and eventually entered into the petting area. At first, he wanted mom to piggy back him so he could be up and away from the animals, but still close enough to watch them and let them sniff his shoes.
Two weeks ago, he approached the gate and wanted to enter the area and did not ask mom to carry him. He walked around and petted all the animals and even tried to say the name of what type animals they were.
Mom called me after Christmas to tell us good news of a huge improvement with Mark. Usually, the family is unable to visit the grandparents because Mark is afraid of the pet dog and often has meltdowns when he visits. The family went to the grandparents for Christmas and as they entered the home, they were expecting a negative experience but instead, Mark walked right up to the pet dog and petted it. FANTASTIC!!!
Tears filled my eyes as I was so happy that our animals helped Mark deal with his stressors and fears.
Thank you to Horse Boy for all the teaching and training you've given us to be able to use our farm in this manner.Read More...
thanks for your recommendation！
My favorite drink is aloe drink, because the nutritional value of aloe vera is very high, there is no heat aloe drink, weight loss is also good.
