Every year at PATCH we talk about and celebrate Night of the Stable Animals.
Now, this tradition is usually celebrated on Christmas Eve and it is the night we honor barn/stable animals for their kindness to the Baby Jesus. But here at PATCH we celebrate at the last lesson of the season so we can include the kids. This picture is of one of my students giving extra hay to a couple of the horses in the program.
Don't worry about the horses, they will get to celebrate again on Christmas Eve ~~ tonight!
I love this tradition! Old folklore says animals still kneel down at midnight on Christmas Eve.
Wishing you all peace and joy during Christmas!

PATCH is a therapeutic program where we celebrate differences in some really special kiddos! Our horses are kind hearted souls who make a huge difference in their corner of the pasture! They truly know the spirit of giving!!
