A couple times a year, residents at a retirement home in England look forward to an unusual visitor – Rupert the Horse. The moment the 9-year-old horse enters a room, the elderly residents light up. His sweet disposition bring smiles to their faces. Many of them have fond memories of interacting with horses, while others enjoy simply being able to touch him.
Rupert has also benefited from the visits. When he was younger he was going to be put down because of unruly behavior before he was taken in by Elaine Whalley. Now the pair regularly go to schools, retirement homes and community events.
In this video, you”ll see how Rupert is a real charmer. No wonder people can’t wait for him to stop by!
