My Experience with Animal – Human – Relationship as told by Bernd Hildebrandt
For about 8 years I have been involved with the relationships between humans and animals at the farmyard “Seminarhaus Idensen”. In the beginning we offered horse drawn carriage rides for school classes of physically and mentally challenged children. During this time the variety of animals has grown and we now have sheep, geese, chickens, rabbits, cats and a dog. It is very important to us that these animals are socialized and seek out contact with people. Because the animals are raised this way the children (and sometimes the guests from the “Seminarhaus”) can easily associate with the animals and both the animals and the humans enjoy this contact very much.
