If you’ve ever heard of the Salt River wild horses, this story is sure to warm your heart. Even if you haven’t heard of this group of horses, this is an amazing and beautiful story about a unique animal.
According to a Facebook fan page for the horses, ‘They live in central Arizona in the Tonto National Forest, on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community and on the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation. Their existence today is still virtually unknown despite their home being located on the periphery of one of the largest metropolitan area in the United States.’
A wild stallion named Champ and his family were grazing the Salt River when a young filly in the group of horses had a nearly fatal accident.
As the group of horses were crossing the river to greet another group of horses, the young filly was taken under by the strong current of the river and came extremely close to drowning.
However, in just seconds Champ and his family were there to rescue the young filly from drowning. In an amazing feat of courage, Champ managed to grab the filly by the neck, but had difficulty getting a strong grasp on the animal to pull its body out from under the water.
Champ did not give up and broke away from his group to save the filly. He eventually managed to get a strong grasp on the back of the filly’s neck and managed to pull her out of the strong river current.
These is a beautiful story that shows just how loving and caring these horses can be. Please share this article with your friends now to help spread the love.
