BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - It's no surprise Milton Day was nominated for WAFB and Our Lady of the Lakes's Amazing Kid award.
Milton comes from a family of volunteers. Milton's mother Bettie Day was a winner of WAFB's Power of 9 Award a few years ago. Milton seems to carry on his mother's tradition of helping those less fortunate.
What makes Milton special is the way he is helping others. Milton has a passion for horses.
"I started riding when I was four years old," said Milton. "So I just got in love with it and I just always wanted a horse when I turned thirteen I got my first horse."
"He bought a horse for seventy five dollars. He took a liking to it and he said mama I want to start my horse business," said Milton's mother Bettie. "I said horse business? I said okay. What is it going to be called? He said Horseville Association. Oh okay and we just went from there."
Milton's mission is to bring joy and education to the lives of underprivileged children and seniors. Milton is the owner of the business and runs the day to day operations. He has brought on a few employees, who are his younger cousins, to help out with the care of the horses.
Milton needs help though with writing a grant to get money to help make his association that much better. If you think you can help, call the Horseville Association at 225-329-4465 or 225-663-0719.
