The Cutest Sheriff's Volunteer is Three Feet Tall and Has a Mane

by Monte Gast | Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Valor is a miniature horse who soothes humans who are ill or troubled. Along with trainer Victoria Netanel and other miniature therapy horses, Valor is a volunteer for the L.A. County Sheriff, on call at all times. She's calm around children, goes to the bathroom on command and rides in elevators. Much of her work is at the VA's psychiatric lockdown ward and ICU, where she comforts vets. They tell her things they wouldn't tell a human. Read the full story at: The Horse Who Whispers Back.
