Woman feels healing power of miniature horses
The 23 miniature horses on Keith and Sue Swanson's ranch are docile, gentle creatures.
They don't snort, jump or rear their heads, unless a new mother feels her colt is being threatened.
Mostly, they're a soothing presence on the farm northeast of Park Rapids.
"They were my antidepressants, my therapy," Sue said.
Sue's lifelong love of horses began as a kid. Her family owned a riding stable on Long Lake for many years.
