Along that line

Sweet Nothing gets a prosthetic limb.

Saved first from the slaughterhouse, then from a devastating leg injury that veterinarians said called for euthanasia, the small bay mare is now one of a handful of horses in the world to sport a customized prosthetic limb after her bad hind leg was amputated below the hock.

“When you save a person’s life that person becomes your responsibility until the end of his days,” said Roger Brincker, the 74-year-old Alberta man who has spent the last three decades rescuing animals and, nine years ago, added Sweet Nothing to his brood.

“I look at my animals along that line. Once I’ve saved animals from being slaughtered or mistreated, this animal is now in my care and I can’t abandon it.”
