"Horseplay" now has a whole new meaning for these sick kids, who got to meet Lunar and Mystery, two "therapy horses" whose job it is to bring warmth and joy to those who may be running a bit short. And at this time of year, that sort of help is more important than ever.

Lunar and Mystery aren't ordinary horses either. They're miniature horses, which are particularly gentle, making them the perfect animal ambassadors for sick kids who've probably never seen such a creature. Judging by the looks on the kids' faces, it's clear that Lunar and Mystery have mastered their craft.
