jumping-with-the-stars: Congratulations to the people who didn’t give up on this horse, recuperation gave him an opportunity many horses never get. <3 <3 <3

This horse broke his leg during a race. As he was not going to compete anymore his owner decided to send him to slaughter. Fortunately an animal sanctuary rescued him, giving him the opportunity to live in a home where he is respected.

This prosthetic is part of The Alternative Limb Project, and if ever I found myself needing one, I think I'd definitely look at one of these. Utterly beautiful and unapologetic for being a prosthetic, which I really like.
