Two Mini Horses Amble

SAM:  Hey, Rusty, did you hear about the two miniature horses that ambled into a hosptial?

RUSTY:  No, I didn't.  What's the punch line?

SAM:  Punch line?

RUSTY:  Yeah, everyone around here has been trying to tell a joke lately.  What's the punch line?

SAM:  There is no punch line.

RUSTY:  How can you tell a joke without a punch line?

SAM:  But I'm not telling a joke.

RUSTY:  You got that right, Sam!  It isn't funny without a punch line.

SAM:  But I'm trying to tell you a story.

RUSTY:  Right.  And when you remember the punch line, be sure to not wake me from my nap.  

SAM:  But I'm trying to tell you a TRUE story!

RUSTY:  A true story?  You mean ...

SAM:  Yep, two miniature horses ambled into a hospital in Chicago.

RUSTY:  And they got arrested?

SAM:  No, they were welcomed.  They're therapy horses.  They make the sick kids smile.

RUSTY:  Oh, why didn't you say it's a true story?

SAM: I did.  You can read it here - Horse trots into hospital: It's therapy, no joke.


  1. Joke? Question: What do you call a pile of kittens

  5. Awww we bet that made the day of a lot of ill children!

  6. Oh my Ceiling Cat, they are adorable! And such a sweet idea.

  7. I love seeing more therapy animals around.

  8. Some humans think therapy cats are an odd concept - but there are lots of different types of critters that do therapy work! My human would personally rather see almost any other animal than a dog (apologies to you dogs out there!).

  9. What a nice idea to make sick children smile ! Therapy animals are great ! Purrs

  10. That is so awesome! We think any animal species could be a therapy animal; the human-animal bond is amazingly powerful.

  11. Dat's just pawsum.

    Luv ya'

  12. We was sure you was telling a joke Sam, but then the mom bean read us the article. How pawsome is horses in a hospital? Mom bean says it must have been a bit of fun for the patients!

  17. How lovely! What a great idea for any age beings trying to get better not at home! Mommy's second roommate in college raised mini horses. Wonder if any of them were therapy horses?
