Pony gets new fashioned prosthetic front legs

Angel Marie the pony was stepped on by her mother shortly after she was born. Her front legs were so severely damaged, she was too crippled to walk.
It was a challenge Derrick Campana, the so-called “Dr. Doolittle” of Animal prosthetics, was ready to tackle. The certified orthotist at Animal Ortho Care in Sterling, Va., fashioned prosthetic front legs using highly durable, medical grade plastics.
He says watching Angel Marie take her first steps was emotional. “Seeing her walk, and having her here today walking is just a dream come true. A miracle.”
