Frostie The Snow Goat Walks With The Help Of A Wheelchair, Eliciting So Many Awws
Having a rough day? Need to watch a video of a baby animal doing something so adorable you’ll “awwww!” out loud? Look no further. I give you: Frostie, the snow goat who could. As brought to our attention by Laughing Squid, this little trooper lost the use of his back legs to a terrible disease. Luckily, thanks to a custom made cart (sort of like a goat wheelchair) he can continue to frolic around in the grass for your viewing pleasure.
So Frostie here has quite the inspiring story. He was born with "joint navel ill," a disease which causes toxins to build up in his freakishly cute body and prevent him from using his hind legs. When he was found by the rescuers of Edgar’s Mission, a non profit farm sanctuary in Australia, Frostie was severely dehydrated and covered in lice. After a few painkillers and antibiotics, he was feeling much better — but still couldn’t use his back legs. Thankfully, since the folks at Edgar’s Mission are so awesome, they provided him with a tiny wheelchair-like cart so he could walk (and frolic, and skip, and be cute in motion) again!
Nature World News also adds that, although the contraption looks as if it were made for Frostie, it was originally built for his pal Leon, a baby pig (I know, more awwwing, you’re welcome). Take a look at the video Edgar’s Mission made about Frostie below:
