Through a generous donation from the founders, AppleJack Therapy welcomes LuckyCharm a three month old colt, purchased from Sunset Mountain Miniature Horses in Lipan, TX. He is an extremely social horse who loves children. He will mature to just under 34 inches. Lucky's big, loving personality and great demeanor will make him a wonderful therapy horse. In April 2017, he will be evaluated and registered through PetPartners. Follow LuckyCharm as he learns about being a therapy horse.

AppleJack was evaluated today through Pet Partners for his therapy horse registration status and passed with flying colors. On his first try, he recieved the highest rating, complex. AppleJack also enjoyed his first ride in an elevator, entering the small dark room without batting an eye. AppleJack has truly grown into a wonderful miniature, and we can't wait to see what this little guy's bright future holds. Congratulations AppleJack on a job well done!

A special thanks to EmbroidMe for doing a wonderful job embroidering our logo on AppleJack's therapy vest, as well as Easyboot for their great miniature horse boots.
