A magical mare
A small mare called magic has been named the most heroic pet of the year by an American magazine, due to all positive work that she has done helping the sick and the elderly.
Magic, the four year old horse from Florida, works with hospital patients and elderly hospice residents as part of an animal therapy organisation.
She won the contest run by the American Association of Retired Persons magazine and was up against some serious competition from eight dogs and a cat that made up the top ten finalists. Magic helped a patient at an assisted-living complex when she came to visit. Kathleen Loper, who had not spoken in threes years since arriving at the facility, said: “Isn’t she beautiful?” when she was introduced to Magic.
The horse, who only just reaches her owner’s waist, has also helped children recovering from cancer and was by the side of a patient who came out of a coma. She rides in lifts, walks up and down stairs and is fully house-trained.
