Precious Therapy Llamas Bring Joy to Sick and Elderly

Quote:
There are approximately 10,000 therapy animals in the United States. Of those, 14 are llamas. That’s good for 0.14%. In an article published last year for Colors Magazine (Issue #83 ‘Happiness’ published April 16, 2012), photographer Jen Osborne accompanied two certified llama therapists as they visited the Bellingham Health and Rehabilitation Center in Washington, USA.
According to Colors Magazine, all residents are recovering from illness and most are elderly. Many have been there for years and have ever met a llama in person.
To read more about the history of animal therapy, check out the full article at Colors Magazine.

Seen here are Marisco and N.H. Flight of the Eagle, two therapy llamas trained by Niki Kuklenski of JNK Llamas. To qualify, llamas must be at least two years old, have never been bottle-fed, and undergo a battery of tests to gauge how they react to stressful situations. Only a select number of llamas have the temperament to be certified therapists.

so cute. real angels walk on 4 legs; it is almost impossible to believe how much healing an animal can bring you until you've experienced it yourself. animal therapy is one of the most effective forms of short-term therapy, especially with children. equestrian therapy is especially effective and popular for use with survivors of sexual abuse. taking care of a sentient being, who in turn takes care of you, is a truly rewarding and life-changing experience. nature itself is inherently therapeutic

Cool, unless the llama decides to "spit" on you. The smell is suppose to be so bad, even the folks who are used to bad smells vomit.

I gave this one star in error, I meant to give it 5. I screwed up. Even though I have been a subscriber for awhile, I have just started posting more and getting more involved. I would never rate a thread as terrible!
