The ‘happy dance’ the mama horse does when she sees the foal is so beautiful to watch ❤️
This is such a wonderful thing to hear. Mama has a new baby, and baby has a new mom. Such a wonderful thing for both of them. God is so good, and blesses his animals too. Happy that she accepted the orp.haned foal…! 🤗🤗🤗
Queen Uniek, a Friesian horse in The Netherlands, was expecting her first child. The moment she went into la.bor, she knew something was wr.ong. She felt anxious about that moment, flaming her lips and strutting in circles inside her stable. Yvonne, her Mama, stood beside her trying to ca.lm her down.
Uniek gave birth an hour later, and the [ve.terin.arians] who assisted pulled out a foal that wasn’t br.eat.hing. They did their best to re.v.ive him, but they were too la.te. He did.n’t ma.ke it. The hea.rtbro.ken mare kept licking her foal, trying to rev.ive him, but that didn’t work. They took the foal out of her stable while Yvonne continued to co.mfort Uneik.
She knew her beloved horse was in a lot of pa.in.
Then, Yvonne and the rest of the Friesian Horses staff received wonderful news…! Her friend called, telling her that they had an orp.haned foal in their care. Yvonne wanted to see if Uniek would like to adopt the foal for her own.
The first few interactions were very tentative. She sniffed the foal, and the foal did the same thing back. She did a little dance, and they could tell she was happy seeing the foal in front of her as if claiming him to be her own.
It was a very special moment.
The next day, they found the lovable mother and son inside their stable, and Uniek became very protective over her adopted foal. Wherever he went, she did, too. Rising Star always walked close to Uniek. Rising Star was the happiest foal she’d ever seen. He ran and played around freely as any young animal would. Uniek followed right behind him and made sure to keep her little one in sight.
So happy it ended well for momma & baby!
Uniek raised Rising Star and she was a VERY loving and protective mother to him. He is now a beautiful one year old. She is healthy and doing well. 💖
Uniek is an amazing mare, She was absolutely amazing with Rising Star, he’s a little che.eky chap now ❤️ She is such a beautiful and majestic girl! So happy that she got a baby to take care of. She looks like a wonderful mamma…! 🥰❤️🥰
Glad that they were able to unite this baby foal with the mother she seems to be happy and the baby has a mama. Very beautiful both of them. Thank you for taking care of these beautiful animals. ❤️🤗
May God bless this new family it is fantastic and beautiful! 🏡🙏🙏
