A horse in a nursing home sounds like the beginning of a joke, but bringing an actual Clydesdale horse into the Village of East Harbor Senior Living Community in Michigan turns out to be great therapy.
As many seniors living in the center have trouble with mobility that prevent them from going outside, Maggie Provenzano brought her Clydesdale Neigh-Neigh inside the home.
"It was pet therapy on steroids," administrator Carolyn Martin said to TODAY, "Neigh-neigh brought everyone out of their rooms, even those who rarely go to activities or come out to socialize."
