Pony brings smiles and kisses to faces

HAMILTON, N.J. A 300-pound Shetland pony named Samson has been bringing more than just smiles to the faces of patients at nursing homes.

Samson makes the rounds at several New Jersey nursing homes and gives kisses to anyone who wants them. He even has custom rubber booties to stop him from slipping on floors inside.

Doctors say the interaction with the pony gives residents something to look forward to and lifts their spirits.
