Miniature therapy horse sparks adorable reaction from young fan


Honor is a special little horse.

The one-year-old miniature horse is already a therapy horse and is training to become one of the smallest police horses in the U.S. Honor assists first responders and veterans and specializes in comforting children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. The horse is a member of Mini Horse Heroes, a charity that was previously known as the Kenneth F. Tietjen Memorial Foundation. Tietjen, 31, was a Port Authority police officer who died on 9/11.

Honor was training Monday in New York and let out a yawn, which triggered a little girl to do the same. The humorous moment was captured on camera. 

Sweet little Fiona was so interested in Honor yawning that she decided to play along! #stickoutyourtongue #yawn #copycat #funny
