Miniature horse joins therapy dogs and cats comforting patients at Sutter hospitals
Sacramento Bee

Hope couldn’t make it past the front doors of Sutter Medical Center in Sacramento without causing a commotion.

It was the first day of work Tuesday for the miniature horse. She’s the latest and most novel addition to Paws on Call, a volunteer group of therapy animals and their owners who visit patients in Sutter hospitals. Until now, the organization consisted of 30 dogs and one cat.
