When this 19-inch miniature horse named Roo was born, he faced a myriad of health issues, including severe limb deformities and tendon dilapidation on all four of his legs, making it almost impossible for him to stand and walk.
His biological mom couldn’t care for him because his “windswept” legs would not allow him to stand.
During a visit to the vet, owner Christine was recommended to euthanize him, but she refused. Instead this caring woman and her family remained by Roo’s side, bottle-feeding him and doing everything they can to help their little boy live as normal a life as possible. The result is as amazing as it is inspiring.
The video below shows Roo’s incredible transformation from a struggling newborn to one triumphant little survivor – to the tune of ‘Eye of the Tiger.’
We admire these attentive humans who never gave up on this little champion. Please share this inspiring video with your friends and family!
