    I seen that the other day in a email and I thought the photo looked like it had been messed with. The whole left side of the photo looks odd. If it's true its a great story but I'm not sure it's real.

    I am pretty sure it is true. I had looked it up and The Horse magazine covered the story a couple of years ago. There are also some photos of the pony on the web that are not slick and glossy like the one with the original article I posted.

    It is really cool that she has survived this long with a prosthetic leg. And that someone loves her SO much. And that she is out there helping people!

    Cheers,

    That's pretty amazing (and interesting). It may be the start of not having to put down horses because of leg injuries...
