 Pearl is a 2 1/2-year-old miniature horse.

Her owner, Victoria Nodiff-Netanel, is a 26-year Malibu resident.

They are one of the city's best loved pet therapy teams, where every Tuesday, they make weekly visits to the Veterans Hospital in Westwood and visit patient's bedside with "Pet therapy, unconditional love."

Oh, in case you were wondering, "Pearl is fully house-trained."
