Felix the sheep lost one of his legs after a predator attacked him as a lamb. His owners at the time were simply going to slaughter him because of his injury, but, thankfully, a farm employee saved him. Felix was then taken to the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in Woodstock, NY. The sanctuary is home to hundreds of rescued farm animals, including a cow that was saved from a life-threatening infection.

But what makes this rescue different than others of its kind is that several of its animals use prosthetics, thanks to the concern of founder Jenny Brown, who knows this struggle well.

“I can’t imagine not having an artificial leg because I lost my leg at 10, and I’m quite used to it,” she tells Great Big Story. “It’s thanks to medical science that I’m able to live this normal life, and for these animals, I want no different for them.”

With the help of her certified prosthetist, Erik Tompkins, and the SUNY New Paltz 3D-printing lab, animals like Felix are now able to live a full life, as you’ll see below.

“Most of the world doesn’t fully understand it. They think of them as just farmed animals, but we hope that that changes,” Brown says. “And that’s part of the magic of what we do here.”
