EXETER — Seeking to ease the mental health crisis plaguing the nation, Saco, Maine resident Gerry Scott believes he has come up with a solution.
All people need to do is come meet his black Friesian horse, Hercules, and his sidekick yellow lab, Molly.
Scott has started the nonprofit “Horses Over America” and he and his animal companions paid a visit to Exeter this past weekend.
“People think more and feel less, but horses are just the opposite, and they feel more and think less,” said Scott, a 28-year U.S. Army veteran. “They are in a natural state of harmony. So because people are not in the same harmony as a horse, whether they realize it or not, they know they want more of it.”
