When a y.oung filly became separated from her mother, both animals were understan.dably distraught.
The two horses are part of a large herd of wild mustangs that live on the Virginia range. During a com.motion, the foal, named Holly G, wandered into a fenced-in area and became trapped.
Than.kfully a group of volunteers spec.ifically trained to rescue wild horses was called in to help. It took a while, and a lot of effort, but they managed to corral the fo.al inside their trailer.
While the volunteers did their part, another group worked to loc.ate the wild herd so that Mom and baby could be reunited, writes ilovemydog.
The herd was luckily nearby. The volunteers humanely fenced them in so when the foal arrived, Mom wo.uld be right there to greet her. W.hat they didn’t expect, which you will witness. in the. video below, was how incredibly sweet the reunion would be!
Normally, wild horses are timid around humans. Volunteers do their part to care for the horses but respect these boundaries. The reunion was expected to go a lot differently since the herd would normally flee from the approaching trailer. Instead, the exact opposite happened!
The Ame.rican Wild Horse Campaign wrote on their Face.book page, “When the trailer with the foal inside pulled up to the area where the ba.nd wa.s enclosed, a wild mare whinnied to her baby and even stepped right into the scary trailer to retrieve her.”
The reu.nion, thankfully recorded on video, shows Mom whinnying to her foal and Holly G whi.nnying back. But the best part of all is that wild horses won’t ever go up to a trailer…
and the beautiful mare didn’t hesitate to appr.oach and then enter the tra.iler her.self to get to her baby! It’s truly magical, says ilovemydog.
We are so happy that Mom and babe are back together. Thank you to the American Wild Horse Campaign for their extraordinary efforts. See the touching video below!
