Emma the Tiny Donkey

10 Oct

I came across this story about Emma, the tiny donkey with a prosthetic leg, and just had to share.  Typically when horses (or donkeys) break a leg, they have to be put down.  In Emma’s case, she was born with a deformed leg.

Fortunately, her story has a happy ending.  Because she’s a miniature donkey, she doesn’t weigh as much as a horse and a prosthetic leg could support her body weight.

I love donkeys in general, but mini ones are even better!  And her poofy bangs in the second picture?  So cute!

Here is Emma with her brand new leg:
