SALMON, Idaho- Being the center of attention isn’t unusual for Tater Tot, a 31-inch tall Miniature Horse who’s a part of Salmon, Idaho’s, Discovery Care Center’s pet therapy program. Wherever Tater goes, the little palomino and white horse attracts attention, whether visiting residents at the Care Center, entertaining youngsters at the Child Development Center or pulling his cart down Main Street during the annual Salmon River Days Parade. Almost everyone in town knows him, as he’s one of Salmon’s biggest celebrities. As a therapeutic equine with the Whitewater Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Association (WTRRA), Tater who, has been visiting the Care Center for over 14 years, is also a pioneer in his field, as he’s one of the first equines to actually go into a care center and make bedside visits with the residents.
