Frostie the snow goat takes his first steps

FIRST STEPS: Frostie took to his walking cart like a duck to water.

When little 'Frostie the snow goat' arrived at Edgar's Mission he was severely dehydrated, riddled with lice, and was suffering from the debilitating condition known as joint navel disease, which affects the use of his back legs.

In fact, Frostie was so sick he couldn't walk at all. Just look at the little guy now.

Only a few days later, with the aid of a little cart on loan from Leon Trotsky (a tiny piglet who has his own mobility issues), Frostie is able to make his way around the yard, and looks pretty pleased with himself, too.

PORCINE MATE: Leon Trotsky (what a name!) walking unaided.

If you're wondering how Leon is fairing without his cart, well, never fear - he just took his first steps! What a good news day this is.
