Youngsters crowd around the makeshift ‘corral’ in the Ekholm Meeting Room at the Escalon Public Library on Oct. 4, as the Pony Pals therapeutic miniature horses stopped by for a visit. The kids were eager to ask questions and, following a presentation on how the horses are used as support animals and to provide a little therapy when they visit various locations, those attending had a chance to get inside the fence to brush and pet the horses, the patient and gentle equines enjoying the attention.
