There’s a group called Miniwonders of Texas, a non-profit founded by Wendi Threlkeld and friends in Georgetown, Texas a few years ago. Wendi and her friends oversee a group of adorable miniature horses that they share with the community here in Williamson County, visiting assisted living and memory care facilities, and sometimes area schools. On Monday afternoon, in celebration of Valentines Day, Wendi and her crew stopped by The Legacy at Georgetown for a bit over an hour with Mercy, a beautiful 5-year-old mare who weighs a whopping 120 pounds! Mercy’s other three little horse companions stayed close to home because of the cold. I’ve been happy to sometimes be on hand when these four-legged gems are bringing smiles and incredible joy to those who might need a lift in their day. Mercy was dressed in her best (pink, of course) Valentines finery, including booties. This opening photo, my favorite, was one of the last ones taken. This lovely lady, 92, had just come from a doctor’s appointment, certain she’d miss Mercy’s visit. Thank goodness they got to meet. These are photos I took for my friends at the Williamson County Sun.
