That's amazing.  He looks to be adapting to it very well.  You're doing a great job with him.

Awesome!

Animals do not experience handicaps like humans do. They just accept it and move on, they don't dwell on their loss. If people would stop thinking of animals in human terms, more animals like your guy would be saved. The animal wheelchairs and prosthetics are becoming more popular, cheaper and readily available, so more and more animals can be saved. All it takes is an owner who cares, like you do.

PegLeg continues to do well, although he does hang back at mealtime so he doesn't get run over.  We try to make sure he gets his treats alone at treat time.

The hair on his stump has grown back and he's back to his handsome self. He still loves me despite me being responsible for doctoring the leg pre-amputation and the amputation itself.

Aren't they a forgiving animal?  I just loved that about goats.  They forgive so easily when they know, what you are doing may hurt real bad, but they also sense that you're doing it out of Love.  There is nothing like a goats gratitude either.  They never forget what you did for them.  Humans could take many lessons off a goat for sure.

Glad he's doing so well!

My goats hold grudges and have long memories.
