Horses are considered affectionate and kind. They are always ready to help each other. These responsive animals, living both on the farm and in freedom, do not lose their spiritual qualities.
In the Tonto National Forest in Arizona a wild stallion rescued a young inexperienced stallion who could not get across the river.
One ranger who witnessed this scene filmed it on camera. Currently, the number of wild horses living in the Arizona National Forest has significantly decreased. Only a few families of mustangs live in these parts.
Park Service volunteer Becky Standridge noticed a group of horses grazing near the banks of the Salt River and, being well aware of the animal population of this region, immediately recognized the main stallion – Champion and his extended family.
It was a bright sunny day and the horses decided to explore the territory and entered the river to cross it. The current was quite strong and only experienced horses could cross these powerful waters.
One inexperienced young stallion entering such a strong current for the first time could not resist the force of the current and was swallowed up by the river.
Luckily, the brave stallion Champion was among them. Without thinking for a minute, he ran up to the drowning stallion, helped him to his feet and, becoming a support for him, helped him cross the dangerous waters.
You can watch the video of this heroic deed and admire the selflessness and responsiveness of these animals!
