Hank’s “horse-tacular” visit to APL

Hank the Rescue Horse and his mom and advocate Tammi Regan were Guests of Honor of the City of Lawrenceburg and Anderson County in a festive, informal ceremony held in the Anderson Public Library on Wednesday.

See the highlights of Hank’s visit in a short video below:

Hank’s adoring public looked on as Tammi led the magnificent horse to the Children’s Library rotunda, where a selection of horse-themed picture books had been assembled for Hank to peruse.

Hank chose several books for his mom to help him check out (horses choose books by knocking them to the ground with their nose), then Hank and Tammi were greeted by Anderson County Judge/Executive Orbrey Gritton and Lawrenceburg Mayor Troy Young. Mayor Young declared December 22, 2021 “For Hank’s Sake Day” in Lawrenceburg and Anderson County, and Mayor Young’s granddaughter, Bailey Young presented Tammi and Hank with the Key to the City.
