This poor mini-horse has had a real tough start to life, at just 5-months-old.
Teaspoon, was sadly left disabled after being bitten by a snake in her back leg. The leg soon became necrotic and needed to be amputated. Teaspoon's former owners soon realized they wouldn't be able to provide the attention and extra care she needed following the operation.
Panda Paws Rescue came to the rescue! With additional help from the New Jersey-based animal farm rescue Goats of Anarchy, the two rescues came together to carefully transport Teaspoon from Louisiana to her new home at Goats of Anarchy, which is a farm that is focused on caring for special need animals.
And when Walkin' Pets heard about Teaspoon's five months of hardship, they also wanted to help. Thanks to the parts they donated, the first-ever Walkin' Wheels wheelchair built for a horse was created! And additional thanks for the wheelchair frame donated by Panda Paws.
Thanks to all these incredible people who came together -- Teaspoon can now walk!
Her journey so far as been documented on Goats of Anarchy's Instagram page:

Natalia Teplova, a horse owner in Edmonton, Canada, noticed one of her horses was missing when she called for them on Saturday morning. The missing horse, Lexi, didn't show up with the other horses.
"We went calling for the horses and usually they come up. This time, the other horses came up but she wasn't there," Teplova told CTV News.
As any concerned animal owner would do, Natalia and her husband began a small search party and set out to scour the area around their property, and find Lexi. They searched and searched and nearly decided to give up looking for Lexi that is until Natalia's husband horse he had been riding called out, and Lexi responded.
"Then he called again and she responded again, and I started running," Teplova said. They found Lexi have been trapped, full submerged in ice-cold water. "Her head was sticking out above the ice. She was submerged all the way to her withers—her shoulders. Her front feet were out. She was barely holding up there."
Teplova called 911 for assistance, and she and others slid ropes around Lexi's body to prevent her from sinking any further. And just to give some clarity as to just how freezing this water was, Teplova added, "I put my hands in just to get the ropes around, in the water, and within seconds, my hand went numb. So that was very, very cold."
Together with the firefighting units, they were about to successfully pull out Lexi -- along with a bobcat!
It was estimated that Lexi had been trapped in the ice water for at least six hours.
