Here's a story I've only told a few people, but it needs to be told again! Very Happy
Our little Angel had very bad legs at birth, the vet that came to check her said, I think you need to put her down, she'll never walk! Well, I showed him the driveway and took matters into my own hands!
She could not stand to nurse, so we took turns every 2 hours going to the barn and holding her up to Mom to nurse! We did this the first 4 days of her life, then on the 4th day I went out to help her nurse and as I got closser I could here a sucking sound! There was Angel standing on her crooked legs and leaning in on mom and nursing! Very Happy That's when I made that little girl a promise that I would do what ever it took to help her survive!
First we put splints on both leg and wrapped them very heavy with cast pad and vet wrap! That worked long enough for us to find a different solution! I went on Lil Bebinnings and ask for help and a very nice lady replied named Janell! She said she had some shoes that just might help our little Angel! So I traced Angel's feet and sent it to
Janell! I talked to her several time and she explained to me how they worked and how to put them on! The shoes came in just a couple days and I glued them on Angel! She took off like a race horse across the pasture to find her Mom! Wanalynn and myself both stood their with tears in our eyes watching our little Angel run for the first time! I looked at Wanalynn and said, Those are truly "Magic Shoes". I called Janell and told her how they worked and we were both elated! Then Janell said, That's a wonderful name for my shoes! And the rest is history! Little Angel will be 4 years old in June and she still wears "Magic Shoes" on both front feet! We take the time to trim her hooves and reset her shoes every 4 weeks! Had I not found Janell and her "Magic Shoes" our little Angel would not be here today! Thank You Auntie Nell from the bottom of my heart for giving my little Angel a chance at a normal life! This is why I'm here helping and why we try to help any little dwarf we can! These are truly God's creatures, sent to us to care for and look after until he wants them back!

She truly is an Angel Bill. I need to remember when I read about these little ones to have tissues handy. Thank you for sharing Angel's story.
