Miniature horse prances around w/ prosthetic leg

A 4-year-old miniature horse that was born without most of his rear right leg is surprisingly well adjusted to his new prosthetic leg.

Midnight was recently seized from a neglectful owner in north Texas. When rescuers saw his leg, they asked a company that makes artificial limbs for humans if they could help.

As it turns out, they were up to the challenge, and the results were better than anyone had expected.

Instead of just walking, Midnight surprised everyone when he took off running at his second fitting this week.
