Big day for our TV star, Hippotherapy begins

Big day for our TV star, Hippotherapy begins

Started out with enjoying the trash being picked up

Then we went to shoot a commercial for the Autism Walk in April

Zane meets up with an old friend there

Susan Peters, one of the anchors for our local ABC channel was doing the ad.  The first take Zane tried to take off his shirt, but he did ok after that.  Echolalia and shooting a commercial in front of a crowd of Autistic kids can create some funny outtakes as a phrase gets echoed across several different kids in a wave.  lol.

    I’m so glad he likes the horseback riding.  I’ve heard a lot of good things about those programs.

    The kids look so cute for the commercial!
