Couple Postpones Wedding After Spending 40,000$ On Moko, Their Adopted Disabled Sheep

Kristin Harkness and Jay Yonz from North Carolina are a very unique couple with a giant heart. 

The animal-mad couple decided to spend all of their savings on giving their adopted disabled sheep a better quality of life, rather than go ahead with their wedding. And if that's not enough, they also run refuge with more than 62 disabled animals including dogs and cats. 

What an inspirational couple!

    A year ago, they were still traveling the US with their giant micro-pig, Ziggy, and now they are also the loving owners of Moko, a disabled sheep who is unable to use his hooves and needs a prosthetic limb in order to walk.

    The couple adopted Moko a year ago, after spotting him at a local farm and actually saved his life.

    As you can see from the cheerful photos, the couple will do anything to make Moko feel comfortable, in spite of his disability:

    "We've had baths with him and he even sleeps in our bed. Moko has prosthetics but he still struggles to walk on them so we often carry him around. To us, he's so beautiful and so happy that we don't mind waking up to his gorgeous face each morning when he sleeps in our bed", they told The Daily Mail.
