Our grandson Shayne is the one who started the sparks flying and gave us the idea for Haystax. He is an incredibly loving and sweet boy, who has a rare chromosomal disorder and multiple additional needs. Over the years, we have watched him interact with the animals on the farm in a way he struggles to with the people around him.
The time he has spent on our farm has had a wonderful calming effect on him and opened up a host of opportunities to learn about the world around him. He has helped us see the positive impact time in the countryside, and around animals, can have for those who are neurodiverse and with disabilities.
