A few days ago, this young horse lover found a white toy horse missing a leg in the Pitney Meadows Community Garden’s toy farm. She also found the leg.
Taylor, who frequents the garden with her mother Lauren, asked is she could take the horse and leg home to see if she could do “something to help.”
This morning, the five-year-old brought the white horse back. She explained that surgery had been necessary and had gone very well. Taylor, who hopes to be a veterinarian one day, told her mother this had been “her first real work.”
She did an outstanding job. To mend the break, she crafted a rod from a paper clip and inserted it into the hollow leg. A glue was applied. Back in its corral on the farm, Taylor made sure the horse had water before leaving.
Well done Taylor. You are on your way to being a fine vet and your gentle, loving care was greatly appreciated.
