Leon Trotsky Voted Most Influential Animal Of 2014

The end of the year is when all the awards start rolling in, and Huffington Post has chosen Edgar’s Mission Hoofster Leon Trostky as the “Most Influential Animal” of the year.

Number two on the list was none other than another friend of Edgar’s Mission- Frostie The Snow Goat, who we all have a fond memory of. 🙂

  1. Precious 🙂

  2. Yay for Leon and his indominable spirit! And loving remembrances of sweet Frostie. ❤

  3. Frostie had a short but (mostly) happy life. I love the sproinging action in that animated gif.

    And congrats to Leon Trotsky and the good folks at Edgar’s Mission for this honor!

  4. What a precious little pigster Leon is! Of course, Frostie is the best goat ever!!! The video of Frostie jumping around is an adorable reminder of the way he lived to the fullest. 🙂

  5. Frostie died?!? NOOOOO!!!

  6. Christy – I’m so sorry – Frostie died this summer. He was more seriously ill than they knew, and they couldn’t save him.

    If you click on his name above, there’s the story and also a wonderful series of pictures of Frostie frolicking & being loved.
