CONNECTICUT (WTAJ) — It’s finals time for college students across the country and one university is looking to pick up their spirits with an unusual therapy animal.
Moo-kah, Willy and Mable are three miniature horses that enjoy eating grass, but they are also helping students at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut relieve some stress just days before finals.
Experts say petting the horses, or just being around them, can help reduce students’ blood pressure during one of the most stressful times of the year.
