Pony Farm

Dillon's educator had a "field trip" today to a pony farm that is specifically meant for children with special needs. It is always free and they are very nice people. The pony's are so great with the kids! They have been desensitized to wheelchairs and everything like that so they just stand there and wait for the kids to rub them. They are so gentle. It was a great experience. I really liked it since Dillon could participate... at a zoo or normal petting farm Dillon can't do much. But here - they stood beside Dillon the whole time with one pony or another and let the pony nuzzle Dillon. Jay had a great time too, they even let him ride one for a few moments. It is pretty far from our home (45 miles) but I do want to go again! If anyone wants to know more info on it, let me know and I can email you their phone number and all.

Dillon seemed to enjoy it, at first his eyes were opened very wide then he closed them, but he stayed calm the whole time. He didn't have any seizures or cough at all (even though Jessica was feeding him during it too!) I think he enjoyed it!
