She thought her horse’s reunion with his mates might be special, but she didn’t expect it to be so beautiful.
Horse lover and breeder Sue Blagburn has just bought back her horse Arthur. She had to sell him four years ago due to financial reasons.
“We are just about to go into the field to see Harry and William, Arthur’s old playmates from foal-hood. I don’t know what’s going to happen. Let’s see,” says Sue, as Arthur looks around eagerly at his old farm. Is he looking out for his friends? Does he know?
As the horses see each other from afar, they run full speed toward each other. From the first moment it’s all group hugs, and running around wildly and playfully.
These horses clearly love each other, and have a special bond that goes back to the good old days when they were young foals growing up together.
“I am absolutely awestruck with the amount of communication and love,” Sue says, after watching the horses together.
“I knew that they would recognize each other, but this is so much more deep that I thought possible,” Sue says. “They’ve been celebrating their reunion with stomping and squealing and all forms of horse communication. It’s so extraordinary.”
Sue explains they spent time together as foals, in a herd with their mother and grandmother and big uncle. “I always keep my horses living together free-range in a herd so they will always have their elders to put them in their place, as they would in the wild.”
