The Edgar's Mission farm has recently enabled one of its immobile goats with the ability to trot. Unable to walk since birth, the animal was recently given a series of antibiotics and painkillers which required movement on behalf of the goat. Thus, workers assembled a small cart that fastens to certain parts of the animal.

By intermingling the wheels with the functional legs of the goat, the animal has been able to move about in new ways. While his hind legs do not function, the frontal part of his body have allowed him to make full use of the transport device, much like a wheelchair.

Although initially uncertain and new to the apparatus, the goat quickly warmed to the tool and used it to nibble on grass and travel short distances.
