Allen & Linda Anderson visit
Tanya K. Welsh and Viola at MN LINC.




Tanya K. Welsch's story "Viola, Wise Mother Mare" is featured in Horses with a Mission.

A Norwegian Fjord horse and draft pony named Viola was imported from Norway to become a broodmare in upstate New York. She eventually made her way to Tanya Welsch and MN LINC (Minnesota Linking Individuals, Nature, and Critters). At MN LINC Viola put her mothering skills to excellent use as a co-therapist in the animal-and-nature-facilitated psychotherapy, learning, and wellness program for youth and families. With her innate maternal wisdom, Viola is incredibly intuitive and nurturing, especially with at-risk youth. This story focuses on how Viola helped to heal a teenager named Amy to become more centered and independent.
