New Delhi: There are inspirational speakers, who have the ability to inspire through their words of wisdom and pep talks.

There are those people whose stories of struggle speak volumes and inspire people across the globe.

Then, there is Molly. A Pony, whose mere presence is enough inspiration. Why? Because she doesn't have a leg.

You may wonder why a disability makes a pony inspirational. Well, as the story goes, Molly had a rough start. She lost her home in Hurricane Katrina and was taken to a farm for abandoned animals.

While at her new home, an attack by a dog left her horribly wounded. Her injuries soon healed with proper medication and treatment, but her right front leg was in a terrible condition.

The farm authorities considered putting her down, but thanks to her new adoptive owners, Kaye and Glenn Harris, this plan was instantly quashed.

 

Molly's will to live was so strong, that she even compelled her vet, Dr Rustin Moore, into believing that she would survive a surgical procedure.

After Molly’s surgery, she was fitted with a temporary prosthesis. Upon awakening, she stood up and started walking right away.

Molly's leg was amputated in January 2006 and in the past decade, she has shuffled through several prostheses, due to changes in her stump.

Molly is now in her mid-20s and is a regular visitor at schools, nursing homes, cancer camps, rehabilitation centers and children's hospitals, spreading positivity and hope throughout.

According to the Harris's, she has an incredible connect with people.

And Molly's prosthesis has a smiley face engraved into the hoof, so that she leaves a smile wherever she goes!
