Watching a Calf Born Unable to Walk Take Her First Steps With Braces is the Best Medicine

Pixie, the adorable calf in the video above, was born with crippled front legs on which she was unable to walk. But luckily for Pixie, she was adopted into an Australian sanctuary for rescued farm animals called Edgar’s Mission. There the calf was surrounded by devoted and loving keepers who developed the right aids for her to gain mobility.

The staff accomplished this using a combination of latex splints to brace Pixie's legs and a crossbar to keep them from bowing under her weight. The footage of Pixie walking for the first time and then sharing an embrace with sanctuary founder Pam Ahern captures the expressive calf's sheer joy, excitement and gratitude over being able to walk for the first time in her life.
