Finally!...A positive contribution to civilization by the pit bull community.

"Without Pit Bulls, artificial limbs for horses would have never been developed."

Pit bulls are absolutely deadly to these wonderful animals. Let's not forget that in some cases the ponies and horses have riders. Deaths in these instances would not be recorded as dog bite fatalites; they would be recorded as accidents.

Molly’s prosthetic has a smiley face on the bottom of the hoof. Wherever Molly steps, she leaves a smiley face imprint. http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m282/delig8dor/forum/katrinaPONY3.jpg

Perhaps the next prosthetic needed, because of a pit bull attack, could have a circle-slash over the picture of a pit bull.

No mention as to whether the Pit Bull owner paid restitution in this case.

A very important point to note is that the pit bull who attacked Molly was itself a rescue from the hurricane. It had been on the farm for weeks and had never shown aggression toward the humans. I'm familiar with a similar situation, an acquaintance who owned a pit bull who was quite tame with humans--even rescued her young grandson from an apartment fire--but some years later attacked and killed a horse. Naturally the dog was put down after the attack, but pit bulls are a breed that should never be around horses.

Molly is touring Ohio:

"(August 14, 2009) CINCINNATI — Molly the three-legged pony leaves smiles wherever she goes. Her prosthetic right front hoof has a smiley face on the sole. Her sweet disposition and tales of survival brought smiles Thursday to the faces of 120 campers with disabilities ages 5-22 at Stepping Stones Center's Day Camp...

On Dec. 3, 2005, Harris left her farm to go to the post office. She let another Katrina survivor have the run of the yard. That survivor happened to a pit bull.

When Harris returned home, Molly was on the ground. "Her four legs," Harris said, "looked like they had been put through a meat grinder." The pony had been attacked by the pit bull. The piranha on four legs also tore a gash in Molly's neck. The pony survived the attack, but her right front hoof didn't. The damaged limb fell off in Harris' hands as she massaged the injured pony."
