Adorable snaps of disabled dwarf horse will melt your heart
Meet Roozer Brewz – the adorable miniature horse born with DWARFISM.
Roo had a tough start in life – his dwarfism meant he had limb deformations, windswept hind legs and tendon laxity, making it difficult for him to stand.
Vets thought he should be put down due to his cocktail of health problems – but fighter Roo has battled through with the help of his devoted owner Christine Clark.
The tiny 65 lb horse has overcome every obstacle thrown at him and has an army of devoted of more than 50,000 devoted fans who follow his progress on his Facebook page.
Christine, from Missouri, USA, said: “Roo has a heart larger than himself!
“At just 19 inches tall he is one of the world’s smallest horses.
“He had multiple complexities at birth, along with problems caused by his dwarfism.
“Most miniature horses in the world are not this small and do not have the complications that Roo was born with.
“He is very loved and cared for, just as if he didn’t have a disability.
“He’s a great character and his disability has just added to his already spunky self.
“He was and still is a fighter!”
Despite his problems, Christine refused to have the adorable horse put down – and thanks to her love and care Roo is now thriving.
Christine said: “I was highly recommended to have him put to sleep due to his vast amount of complications.
“I had a flood of emotions – I cried, laughed and I made the decision that would change my life forever.
“I felt selfish if I didn’t give him a chance to prove everyone wrong – he’s such a trooper.
“Roo continues to prove that he knows he has a reason to be here.
“He doesn’t give up or get frustrated with the challenges of everyday life.
“Roo is a fighter and has a huge will to live.
“He has learned to compromise, and if one way doesn’t work then another will.
“As long as he is not in pain or suffering, he will continue to bring huge smiles to the hearts of everyone he meets.
“Every day I have with the little guy is a huge inspiration – he’s taught me more than I can ever imagine.
“This horse has my whole heart, and I would be lost without him.”
