    Her will to live is remarkable. I'm so glad she had someone to give her a great life after her ordeal. What a touching story. Thanks for sharing. :thumbup:

    I'm glad they took care of her and her bad leg. She is one very strong horse to go through all that.
    It just frosts me that people let their dogs run like that to attack other animals.

    What this beautiful animal has suffered and survived is truely amazing, animals know when we humans are trying to help, love the smiley face on her artificial leg, no doubt Molly brings smiles to many faces when they read her story, thanks for posting this it has made my day.

    Would love to send a bag full of treats for dear Molly, but the tyranny of distance makes it too difficult, anyway much love and hugs for Molly from Australia.

    Will tell Molly's story at our next RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) meeting.

    oh that's so sweet. she's a darlin!
    my DIL said their cat broke her leg somehow and the vet put on a cast. then 3 wks later a different cast. the cat is an outside one and went out and lost the cast. Nothing is to be done now. too costly. makes me cringe!!!
    pets are like your children. they must be looked after too!

    That is a heart warming story. We can all take a lesson from Molly.

    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.
