Miniature Pony Gets Prosthetic Leg, Can Gallop Again

Here is your feel-good story of the day: It seems a miniature pony named Midnight had only a nub for a back leg. He was taken to a rescue in Fort Worth, and was in critical condition at the youthful age of four. The folks at the rescue asked, of prosthetics, "If it can be done for humans, could it be done for a horse?" And thanks to the wonders of science and technology, paired with the inherent magic of mini-ponies (plus $14,000), he can run again! Look at him go! Our hearts just grew a size.
