WEST BEND, Wis. (November 30, 2012)--Tinker is a miniature horse that’s proving to be a big money raiser for the Salvation Army.
He uses his mouth to hold and ring a red bell and also picks up a "Thank You Merry Christmas" sign.
He can also bow and give kisses.
Crowds usually gather to watch the 13-year-old horse and take photos, pet him and, of course, put some money in the red kettle.
Major Roger Ross, a Salvation Army commander, says Tinker brings in 10 times the amount of a regular bell ringer in the area.
