Baby Eugene came to Quantum in his first year of life, after his previous owner was forced to close her own equine-assisted therapy program. He and his mini-horse companion, Honey, were adopted here to be part of our Kinesthetic Therapy program helping kiddos with sensory integration deficits. This burro is very sweet and kind – you haven’t lived until you’ve felt him pick up a treat from your hand with his gentle, velvety lips. Unlike our horses, he seems to appreciate the difference between a finger and a carrot. Eugene’s endless curiosity and interest in people makes him an invaluable “asset” in our programs!
