My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

interested??

Here's a little more information about Sonshine's equestrian therapy.

Yup, our Sonshine is one of those 10 autistic kids the article mentions!!

And my pic below is of "the goat who thinks he's a dog" :-)

Sarah,

I am thrilled that Sonshine is one of the 10 autistic children who are taking part in the program. You will be amazed at how much it helps him. He will mature and grow in this time.

Brandon attended an animal therapy program sponsored by the Canadian government for two years and you wouldn't believe how much he changed in that time.

Congratulations to Sonshine for sitting tall in the saddle. He's doing a great job.

Blessings,
Mary

First off, thank you so much for the color change on the page - I can read it!!

My cousin's daughter, Tegan, participated in this same type of therapy for her OCD and other issues and it made a world of difference for her. She's not autistic but she did have some major issues and was in Special Education classes all throughout her earlier years of school. Thankfully she was able to just be "one of the kids" during her high school years and Becky attributes a lot of that to her equestrian therapy.

A big YAY! for Sonshine and his progress!

I have friends in Alaska who do this kind of work, and I've heard wonderful things about it. So glad he's able to be involved in this. Looking forward to a great report.
