Worried that they would be unable to give Baine the specialized care the disabled goat needed, his owners got in touch with Wisconsin's Heartland Farm Sanctuary to see if the rescue would be able to give him a forever home. That was how Baine joined the Heartland family in October 2014, when he was just 2 years old.
Despite the challenges that came with being unable to walk, Baine still found a way to get himself around the sanctuary - by pushing himself forward using the ankles of his front feet.
As a result, Baine developed pressure sores, which the sanctuary took care of by bandaging his ankles and making certain to re-bandage and medicate his sore spots as needed.
"Since he was scooting himself around using his two front legs while he was on the ground, it didn't take him long to figure out he could use the same movement to cruise around in his cart," Jamie Monroe, administrative director at the sanctuary, told The Dodo.
"Baine is an incredibly special guy," Monroe said. "Despite his significant physical challenges, he's always smiling and has such a confident, happy-go-lucky personality. He is an inspiration to the many kids and adults who visit our barn - many who are facing challenges themselves, physical or otherwise."
