Meet Percy, our gentle giant. Percy is an old ram. His size tells us to be aware and careful around him, but Percy is actually one of the sweetest creatures on the farm. He has helped one of our clients to get over a fear of animals.
The boy was bitten by a pitbull a few weeks before he started his treatment on the Farm. Our clinicians were unaware of that until the client saw Percy and started crying. Only then did the incident came out. Meeting Percy turned out beneficial for the boy - he is no longer afraid of animals. He comes and stays with Percy, touches and feeds him. It was really important for the child to see someone big as being so sweet and even vulnerable.
Percy is a good teacher for us because sometimes we misjudge people based on their looks.
