Mini Horse Gets Lifesaving Prosthetic Leg (video)

Heartwarming story of the day: Midnite, a 4-year-old miniature horse, was given a new lease on life with the help of a custom-fit prosthetic leg. Midnite was born without part of his left hind leg and was neglected by his original owners. Fortunately, he wound up at Ranch Hand Rescue, a farm animal sanctuary in Argyle, Texas. Rescuers reached out to a local prosthetic limb company, and they were able to create a custom leg for Midnite. Check out the results here:

I felt so happy to see Midnite run so fast and fleet with her new leg that it does make you cry with happiness, and wonderment. What fantastic work is done with prosthetics! Bless the people at the ranch for caring so much for Midnite, and for the manufacturer....a happy ending for a change.
