Four-legged friends are not what you would normally expect to find in a care home, but one in County Durham is welcoming animals at visiting time.
Miniature horses are the latest guests at Hollie Hill Nursing Home in Stanley.
The project is part of a therapy programme to promote wellbeing and boost the mood of residents, as Look North's Chantalle Edmunds reports.
