Where are you from?

We are Americans from Kansas! 

What do you do?

We were miniature show horses in the Kansas area!  Now we are learning the ropes to be therapy horses for seniors at ROARR!

What do you do when you aren’t working or volunteering?

Star: I like to be the boss, kick and bite the big horses every chance I get.  They need to know who is in charge, right?
Hershey: I enjoy eating grass with my new friends Hugs and Kisses.  Hugs and I like to groom each other.  They are my buddies.

Why do you volunteer at ROARR?

Star: I'm still a little nervous of volunteering.  I'm getting used to the wheelchairs and the loud sounds, but I do love people so I know I will do great as I get used to it!
Hershey: I love people, being petted, and being hugged.  I'm starting to feel comfortable around the ranch and I love exploring and doing new things.  The seniors are cool because they like to pet me and hug me.

What would someone be surprised to know about you?

Star: I'm 12 years old and despite being small, I have always been the boss of my herd.
Hershey: I'm 4 years old and I love my new home!

Is there someone who inspires you?

Star: I think I'm pretty inspiring and people should look at me to be inspired. 
Hershey: Hugs and Kisses inspire me, they are so good with the seniors and the kids, I can't wait to learn more from them!

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Star: Stand your ground no matter what, be who you want to be.
Hershey: Learn new things and have new adventures every day.

What are you most looking forward to in the next five years?

Star: Teaching the other horses a thing or two.
Hershey: Learning and spending more time with the seniors.
