Connecticut engineering students create special wheelchair for goat

A baby goat in Connecticut is taking his own steps to success. It is all thanks to engineering students at a high school.

The goat, named Nemo, found his way to the Woodstock Academy by way of freshman Vayda Payne. Her mom co-owns a goat milk soap shop in town. Nemo is one of their newest goats. 

That means he was born with a disability called windswept. Most of his front leg joints are locked into place. 

Without the ability to use his front legs, Vayda’s family was looking for something that could help Nemo get around. They emailed Woodstock Academy’s engineering teacher, Peter Sumner. 

After weeks of research, the students came up with a special goat cart wheelchair that seems to do the trick.

See how it all works by watching the video from WVIT.
