When LifeWorker Abbie Chesney adopted Sparrow - a beautiful retired racehorse - she didn't anticipate he would become an equine therapy assistant. Sparrow spent much of his time standing in the back of his stall with his nose in the corner. On a hunch, Abbie moved him to a more active part of the barn, at which point his depression lifted and his love for carrots
Sparrow was named in honor of Abbie’s friend Carter Albrecht (Carter once fronted a band named Sparrow) in tribute to the positive impact he had on those around him.
Sparrow is our equine therapy assistant. He is a kind, gentle soul who loves his work. After his rapid recovery from depression, he’s sure to understand your pain as well.
