Heart warming stories featuring triumph over adversary, human ingenuity, and tiny animals are always a good mix…especially since I haven’t posted for awhile, sorry!!! Anyway, let’s put the spotlight where it belongs, on Midnight the mini horse who was born without the lower part of one of his tiny hind legs and would have been done for if not for a few fantastic Texans. Most horses do not fare well when missing or broken legs are involved, but before you get the sads, remember that this is a story of TRIUMPH! Triumph I tell you!
Midnight was not appreciated by his original owners and thankfully rescued by local law enforcement who took him to Texas’s Ranch Hand Rescue. It was here that Midnight’s sweet nature and irresistible cuteness inspired the folks at Prosthetic Care to design the first ever prosthesis for a horse! And it worked! Here’s the heart melting video of Midnight actually running around on his new leg (this is the third version of the new leg).
That sweet face! Look at him go! Didn’t I tell ya? Triumph! Joy! The marvels of mankind! Tiny running horses! This story has it all. Did Disney buy the rights yet?
Thanks to Tricia and Urlesque!
