Animal lovers in pony heaven

Snacks the miniature horse got a welcome reception last Wednesday at Helen Woodward Animal Center. Children in the center’s new Animal Lovers program got the chance to pet the 27-year-old horse named for his affinity for tasty treats.

The children also learned about Snacks’ extra fuzzy winter coat, the right way to say hello to a horse and learned the proper name for that patch of hair between a horse’s ears that hangs in its eyes – it’s called a forelock.

The Woodward Center has Animal Lover programs scheduled for every Wednesday through Feb. 28.

But, they’re not just for children. The programs cater to ages 7 through adult. Each week presents different information and introduces a different kind on animal. Jan. 28′s program will be about animal careers – students will learn how to train a dog, meet several different animals and get a behind-the-scenes look at the center.

The Feb. 13 program will be about animal communication and Feb. 28 is all about birds.

Classes are just $10 and run 3:15-5:15 p.m. For more information call (858) 756-4117 ext. 318 or visit www.animalcenter.org.

Upcoming:
- Jan. 28: Animal-related careers
- Feb. 13: Animal communication
- Feb. 28: Understanding birds
