Lightning The Dwarf Horsie

The Story of Lightning, the Way Cute Dwarf Horsie with Deformed Front Legs, and How the Way Cool Dude, the Wizard of Paws, Helped Lightning to Stand, to Walk, to Trot, and to Gallop on Brand Spankin’ New Prosthetic Front Legs

By Ken K. Gourdin

Once upon a time, there was a dwarf horsie named Lightning. Lightning was way cute, but he had one problem: He couldn’t live up to his name very well, ’cause he had some deformed front legs. He needed some help so that he would be able to live up to his name.

Fortunately, Lightning and his people met a Way Cool Dude, the Wizard of Paws. Lightning’s people asked the Wizard of Paws, “Can you help our Way Cute Dwarf Horsie named Lightning live up to his name?” And the Wizard of Paws said, “Why, certainly! It would be my privilege and pleasure to help Lightning live up to his name.”

So the Wizard of Paws made Lightning, the Way Cute Dwarf Horsie, some prosthetic front legs. And you can probably imagine, after Lightning got his brand new prosthetic front legs, how he said, “Oh, this is way cool! I can finally stand! Hooray!”

And imagine the surprise of Lightning, the Way Cute Dwarf Horsie, when he said, “Oh, not only can I stand, I can walk! Hooray!” And after a bit of time getting used to his brand new prosthetic front legs, he said, “Oh, goodness! Guess what? Not only can I stand and walk, I can trot! Hooray!” Then, after Lightning got used to his brand new prosthetic front legs, he said, “Oh, goodness! Guess what? Not only can I stand, and not only can I walk, and not only can I trot …

I …

can …

GALLOP!!!

HOORAY!!!

Here’s a short video clip of Lightning, the Way Cute Dwarf Horsie standing, and walking, and trotting, and galloping on his brand new prosthetic front legs. Hooray!: https://www.reddit.com/r/aww/comments/fz7a4c/this_pony_named_lightning_runs_for_the_first_time/.

Just as others must breathe to live, I must write. I have been writing creatively almost ever since I learned to write, period! I have written fiction, book- and article-length nonfiction, award-winning poetry, news, sports, features, and op-eds. I hope, one day, to write some motivational nonfiction, a decent-selling novel, a stage play, and a screen play.
