This Horse’s Visits Fill Hospital Patients with Joy
While therapy animals are sometimes brought into hospitals, it’s a pretty unusual place for a horse to visit. But Peyo, a 14-year-old stallion from France, has an uncanny healing connection with those who are sick. His handler, Hassen Bouchakour, helps prepare Peyo for hospital visits by making sure he’s up to the health code, but after that, the ward is Peyo’s to pick and choose. And truthfully, this horse has an innate ability to find the patients who need him most.
