Heart melting moment when a horse that lost her baby is united with an orphaned foal (video)
Zindita is a mare from the Netherlands that lost her foal due to a complicated labor that, even with the help of horse fertility specialist Dr. Patrick Brogan, ended up tragically.
Brogan revealed that he attended the call of Zindita’s owner when the delivery was taking place because it was obvious that she was having a hard time giving birth. Once he arrived at the farm, he noticed that there was no way the mare would get the foal out.
After helping Zindita with the delivery, the foal was “completely upside down and folded in half,” so the retired showjumper’s baby died in utero. It was hard on Zindita, whose sorrow was heartbreaking.
Brogan couldn’t help thinking about Zindita and how sad she probably was after getting ready to have a baby and lost it in the last moment.
Consequently, when a colleague told him that a female foal lost her mother due to complications during birth, he knew what to do.
The doctor took Tolanda, the newborn horse, to Zindita’s farm, but he was very hesitant because mares introduced to foals that are not their own could sometimes become aggressive.
THE VIRAL CLIP
For the sake of netizens, that beautiful moment was captured in camera and uploaded to the Equiception’s Facebook page.
It shows Tolanda in front of Zindita, who was sniffing and “kissing” Tolanda on the back of the neck.
WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED?
Brogan finally said that he was glad to have found a mare to raise Tolanda because human-raised horses tend to have behavioral problems and other health issues.
Basically, it is healthier for them to grow up next to their mother and other horses to avoid health problems.
ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL REUNION
It is not the first time that a reunion between horses is recorded as the sports horse name Arthur spent four years apart from the farm he was born and raised due to several private, high-class competitions.
In the farm, he used to spend most of his time with two New Forest Ponies named William and Hairy, and it was time for them to get back together.
Sue, the horses’ owner, took Arthur back to the farm wondering how William and Hairy would react, and it became a beautiful and touching video.
The horses began running toward each other, stamping, and squalling, a sign of communication and celebration. William and Hairy even “hugged” their friend as a way to let him know how much they missed him.
