A New Mom
This one was shared with us by email. It happened this past summer in SW England at the Mare and Foal Sanctuary in Newton Abbot, UK. ~ HfH
Hours after his birth, Breeze was found stumbling around by a farmer. The newborn foal was abandoned by his mother. That’s when the farmer took him to Devon-based Mare and Foal Sanctuary where they instantly started caring for him.
What happened next is both adorable and heartwarming. Staff put a 4-foot giant teddy bear in with Breeze.
The bear’s name is Buttons and Breeze quickly warmed up to him
Without his mother, Breeze has found an adorable replacement.
The two have been inseparable and they expect Breeze to be just fine.
Thanks to the rescuers and those who cared enough to take this little cutie in. And thanks, of course, to Button.
Syra Bowden, the executive director at the sanctuary, said: “It’s been wonderful to see Breeze interacting with his new teddies and cuddling up to them when he goes to sleep. They are great company for him and provide comfort to him during the brief periods when his carers (sic) are not present.”
Habitat for Horses is always on the lookout for a few great people, both in the office and on our ranches. The work is unique, the animals are special and we want folks who both know and understand the special connection our animals need.
