Have you ever witnessed a mother’s pride and joy in showing off her newborn baby? Well, we have a heartwarming story that showcases just that, not just for humans but for animals too. In a stunning video that has captured the hearts of millions, we witness a proud mother horse showing off her adorable newborn baby to her owner.
The video, which has now gone viral with over 2.7 million views on YouTube alone, features a beautiful white mini-horse named Sapphire. Last October, Sapphire gave birth to a stunning baby colt, and she couldn’t wait to show him off to her owner.
As her owner approaches, we hear her asking excitedly, “What have you got, honey? Baby, what have you got?” and there, right beside Sapphire, is the beautiful newborn colt.
What’s heartwarming about this video is how welcoming Sapphire is to her owner, despite having just given birth. As some of you may know, hormonal changes or discomfort can make animals aggressive before and after giving birth, but not Sapphire. She walks a few steps toward her owner and even seems to answer her with sweet neighs, whimpers, and grunts.
Sapphire’s owner is proud of her mini-horse for giving birth to such a beautiful colt. Mini-horses, despite their small size, are a remarkable breed. Did you know that the first miniature horses were developed in Europe in the 1600s to serve as pets for the noble and rich?
However, mini-horses are more than just pets. They can be trained to pull carts, jump, and even serve as therapy animals. As we’ve seen from Sapphire’s story, they make incredible mothers.
We see Sapphire’s tail wagging and her nose pointing at her newborn baby, whom she looks after with utmost care and love. It’s a beautiful sight that reminds us of the wonder and joy of motherhood.
While some viewers may have been worried about the colt lying down and not walking, one person who used to breed mini horses shared some reassuring words in the comments. “The foals will sleep hard after a few hours of being up,” they wrote. “Being born is hard work on both Mom and baby. That baby is dry, so several hours old. No need to worry yet, too short of a clip. I would often watch Momma horses stand guard over their sleeping baby. It’s precious.”
Watch this heartwarming video for yourselves and be reminded of the beauty of life, love, and motherhood in any form they may take. This video has touched our hearts, and we encourage you to share it with your loved ones. During these trying times, we could all use a little more joy and love in our lives.
