When the Salvation Army asks for volunteer bell ringers, they do suggest bringing friends along!

This idea, however, had to be the best one I've ever seen anywhere! I was browsing Instagram this weekend when I noticed a cute picture of a mini horse. I liked it, and then I read the caption and was stunned.

Since her account is private, you may not be able to see it immediately - but this horse assisted with bell ringing at the Apache Mall on Saturday! Danielle Witthoeft posted this. She's a phenomenal local photographer and you can check her out here!

We don't know who brought the mini horse along to ring bells - but we're sure glad they did!
