Party goers danced to a song called "Trot Old Joe," played games, wore hats and leis and shared an animal-friendly cake made of carrots and molasses. The guest of honor even donned a crown, ribbon and Mardi Gras beads.

I have worked with the Sonrise Group through Landes Studios, my photography business and they do an incredible job with the children and the horses. If you are not familiar with it, check it out. They provide a wonderful service to the children and the enjoyment on their faces when they are working with the horses is wonderful to see. I have photographed Old Joe and he is a sweetheart, as are their other horses, they seem to sense the needs of the kids. A great group to donate to or get involved with.
