COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - Horses and other large animals with broken legs have previously often been considered a lost cause.

At the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, broken legs are no longer worst case scenario thanks to a team of veterinary specialists and innovative surgical techniques and implants.

Tink’s leg was broken when he was only 2 weeks old.

Thanks to the efforts of Aggie veterinarians and an interlocking nail implant, Tink’s surgery went well and now he is fully grown.
