Saying ‘Thank You’ to Veterans Everyday


We’ve already talked about the dogs of war, so now it’s time to talk about their human counterparts. Veterans Day is a time to show our thanks and appreciation to all those who have fought for our country. They have done a lot for our country – they keep us safe and free. They deserve to be honored all year round, not on just one day. That is why 1FUR 1 is excited to continue working with Kindred Spirits Therapy Minis.

What Kindred Spirits Therapy Minis Does

They are the ONLY therapy mini horse program in the Florida panhandle is led by a brave active duty Air Force woman. Her name is Nancy and her 4 therapy mini horses and one therapy mini pig cultivate joy among individuals by offering animal assisted activities designed improve ability to connect, stimulate tactile response, enhance motor skills, encourage use of the senses, and generally lift spirits.

The central objective revolves around bringing our expertly trained and nationally certified miniature horses into contact with individuals who find themselves navigating challenging circumstances, be it in the realm of their mental well-being, physical health, or emotional state. To fulfill this purpose, we have conceived specialized programs tailored to cater to diverse groups in need. Our outreach encompasses young children and teenagers facing significant risks, veterans who have served their nation, emergency responders who valiantly protect our communities, families affected by natural disasters, organizations dedicated to relief efforts, and individuals grappling with thoughts of self-harm or emotional anguish.
