The girls in Girl Scout Brownie Troop No. 41107 in Tukwila decided they wanted to do something for someone else with their earnings from the annual cookie sale.

So the 21 girls helped buy a horse called Speckles for the scouts' Camp River Ranch in Carnation.

“The girls have a heart for helping others," said trooper co-leader Laura Hopp.

They did get something in return – a Saturday of fun at the camp, including, what else, horseback riding, and a chance to meet and groom Speckles.

And in recognition of their donation, a horseshoe hangs in the barn at camp with the troop's name on it.
