    Even though I have seen and read this story before, I still have trouble believing what I see! Normally, if a horse breaks or injures it leg enough so that it is not usable, the horse has to be put down. Not so with this one! I would call this horse Spunky. What an inspiration to all it comes into contact with. Wish I could thank the new adoptive owner and the doctors who did surgery and made the prosthesis. Isn't it nice that there are still real Average Joe heroes in this crazy world?

    There is a book out about Molly. it was written by a friend of mine - Pam Kaster. You can find it at Barnes and Noble and on Amazon. The title is "Molly the Pony".

    There are survivers and she is definitely one. Such a sweet pony to have been through so much. Love the smiley face.

    A loooong time ago, I was a little girl who received a monthly magazine called "Jack and Jill".
    one of the stories I have never forgotten was the story that is similar to Molly's ... I remember the boy's name was Jeff, and the way he got his pony to actually walk on the artificial leg was when he went and got the curry comb (they had a game, the pony had not forgotten).
    If I remember correctly the artificial leg didn't have a compression shock in it, and was held in place by a strap across his shoulders (can you tell I haven't read all of your article?).
    I have always thought the story was real ... or remembered it as being a true story ... it would have been pretty cruel to a myriad of children to use that type of fantasy for "entertainment".
    It must have been the early sixties. Just goes to show what a human can accomplish when they have the desire, the $$$, and the intestinal fortitude to keep trying.

    I can't imagine anyone would deliberately abandon such a lovely animal. I prefer to believe that she was owned by someone who must have died in that horrible time. She must have had a good upbringing since she was so well behaved and easy to get along with, even in pain.
