Ponies brighten up residents’ day in Stoke-on-Trent

Residents from Park Lane Care Home in Stoke-on-Trent enjoyed a visit from some four legged friends as a couple of Shetland Ponies popped into the home for some pet therapy.

Karen Jukes, Home Manager, said: “To say that our residents were over the moon was an understatement. The two ladies that brought in the ponies went to every single resident, including the ones in their rooms so everyone could say hello. The ponies went down so well, some of the residents wanted to keep them as Park Lane pets. Due to their popularity I can see them coming back again and again. I want to thank the ponies and their handlers for coming in.”
