Alastrean resident Rod Walker with one of the therapy ponies from Joyful Ponies & Pygmy's Animal Assisted Therapy.

Residents and staff at Balhousie Alastrean were just thrilled to be visited by some absolutely gorgeous miniature Shetland ponies.

The little ponies from a company called Joyful Ponies & Pygmy’s Animal Assisted Therapy travelled from nearby Alford to spend some time with the residents. This follows a visit last spring where they brought some of their beautiful pygmy goats to see everyone.

The photos say it all. What a treat for everyone at Alastrean!
