Miniature Horses Stop by UMD to Bring Stress Relief

December 09, 2014 10:13 PM

Stressed-out students got a break on Tuesday with some very calming visitors.

As part of UMD's Pet Away Worry and Stress (PAWS) event, two miniature horses stopped by to provide relief from finals study sessions. Spanky and Peanut are registered therapy animals and belong to the Windchill Legacy, a horse rescue nonprofit.

Finals week is next week, so this was a good chance for students to take a breather before diving back into those books.
