Greensboro, NC-- Some local Girl Scouts spent the day helping a nonprofit while also working towards a medal.
Troop 41126, a group of three Cadettes, which included Erin Alday, Ashlyn Cornelius and Tory Skordas spend Saturday at Flurry's Hope. The agency is a nonprofit that helps rehabilitate blind horses.
The three cadettes painted a radio shed on the ranch and planted some cypress trees, which the horses like to smell. The sweat equity was part of a beautification project and goes toward a Silver Award for the girls.
Flurry's Hope takes in blind horses from around the country. What makes it so unusual is that the owners and volunteers here ride the blind horses. They say the blind horses make excellent mounts because they don't get spooked like other horses.
