PHOTOS: Whinny Wonderland offers holiday horses, lights

Several families took in the dazzling lights, horse-drawn carriages and — yes — holiday-decorated miniature horses during Friday’s Smiling Goat Ranch Whinny Wonderland fundraiser in Carbondale.

The ranch, which offers many mental health services using support animals, collected donations to be used to hire more specialists and expand services.
