The One Minute Mark Of This Absolutely Crushed Me. Just Watch What This Baby Goat Does.

When Edgars Mission discovered Frostie, he was a sweet little baby snow goat that just cried out for his mama. He was severely dehydrated, infested with lice and couldnt walk. He was unable to use his hind legs because he was born with a life-threatening condition called joint navel ill. Joint navel ill is a disease that is seen in very young calves and kid goats. Its caused from an infection that enters the body via the umbilical cord. For Frostie, this meant the bacteria settled in his hind limbs… and they became so painful, he couldnt use them.

EDIT

Instead of giving up on Frostie, Edgar”s Mission rushed to help him.
