Remember the simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming story of Breeze the orphan foal? After being rescued by the Mare and Foal Sanctuary in England, Breeze was given an oversized teddy bear (named buttons) to keep him company and comfort him in his stall. Watch a video of baby Breeze snuggling with Buttons here.
“When we reunited Breeze with Buttons we could see how pleased he was,” says Mare and Foal Sanctuary deputy yard manager, Nicola Anstey. “There was a lot of sniffing and licking, then Breeze decided to give Buttons a tour of his new stable and carried him around by his ear. They then snuggled up together and Breeze snoozed the afternoon away.”
The result is the cutest role-reversal in history:
The Mare and Foal Sanctuary was established in 1988 in Devon, England, as a charity to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome abused and unwanted horses. The sanctuary owns four separate facilities for retirement, rehabilitation, educating the public, and other functions. Find out more at www.mareandfoal.org.
