A New Kind of Bell-Ringer

Posted: Updated:

He has four hooves, but that didn't stop  a miniature horse from ringing bells for the Salvation Army.

Van Gough is a miniature horse from the Triple H Miniature Horse Rescue in Andean. It's *his* first time ringing the bell, but the Horse Rescue has been doing this fundraiser for years and owner Alison Smith was impressed by his performance.  

"Well, he's only been trained for a month and only for like ten minutes a time because of the weather has not been very co-operative," says Triple H Horse Rescue Founder, Alison Smith. "And we didn't know if we'd be here ten minutes, or if he would get stage fright and leave but he's doing really well. Obviously he loves to perform and everyone loves him and hopefully raising a lot of money."

Smith says she enjoys giving back to the community, and seeing reactions from children who often mistake Van Gough as a reindeer.
