The majority of animals with which we regularly come into contact are entirely domesticated or tamed. Everyone’s safety and wellbeing are impacted by having a docile and reliable animal, whether they are farmers or pet owners. However, when an animal is removed from its natural habitat, things start to act a little… feral!
If given enough time, dogs, cats, and horses can all turn wild.
An animal that has escaped from captivity or domestication and is now living somewhat like a wild animal—or an animal descended from such an animal—is referred to as a feral animal- Wikipedia
A wild horse is one of the most stunning “feral” or “wild” creatures you can encounter in America. They are majestic, wild, and allowed to spend their lives as they like. A wild horse almost resembles a mythical animal from the woods.
Even though feral animals exist on their own, they occasionally require human assistance.
Humans still step in as the top animal on the earth, whether it’s merely for medical care or habitat preservation. As a result, lots of animals now regard people as their rescuers or even buddies!
This understanding helped a horse in British Columbia save the life of her newborn foal.
Candice and Jordan Camille noticed a herd of wild horses on their property when they were out in the fields of British Columbia, Canada.
In fact, there are feral horses in our area that year-round reside on the range grounds. The stallions have the herds divided into numerous little bands of broodmares, foals, and yearlings living erratically over the sagebrush and grasslands for years.
Jordan was inspecting the fence line when he saw that two of the wild horses weren’t bolting like they usually did.
Jordan thought it was interesting and stopped to video the scene.
He had no idea what he was doing as he sent the clips to Candice. The horses weren’t only indifferent or unconcerned about him; they were also guarding something. Jordan became aware of what was happening after the two horses pushed him out from the line.
Jordan observed a newborn foal trapped in the mud as he made a loop down towards the valley.
The horses weren’t being hostile; rather, they were being guardians! A mare, a stallion, and the mother of a newborn foal that was caught in the mud in the valley were guarding it! Jordan and Candice thought the situation was unbelievable, but they had to step in and help.
Both of them removed the foal from the muck and washed it off while fending off the parents.
The two of them struggled for about two hours before the baby was finally released. They backed off as they waited for the mare to return with the infant after administering some electrolytes and cleaning up.
Finally, she arrived and removed her foal, almost appreciative of the assistance!
In a scene that could almost be from a movie, we see the parents come to take the foal back and reclaim it. All she needed was a little help!
