AUSTIN (KXAN) — Frostie the Snow Goat’s melting the hearts of everyone across the Web.

Born with a debilitating condition – called joint naval ill — that makes his back legs unusable, Frostie’s forced to take his first steps using a special wheel cart, according to Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary’s video.

Frostie is being cared for by Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary in Australia, whose staff has given him antibodies to attack the pus pockets that have formed in his body and pain relievers to make him feel a bit more comfortable.

Frostie’s warm caretakers say it’s important that he stays mobile in order to flush the toxins out of his little system. Thanks to the wheel cart, Frostie’s full of spunk — giving his owners goat kissies and snuggly nuzzlies.
