If you’re one of those who see animals as totally different from humans, kindly read on for a proof that we all need a change of heart towards these lovely creatures.
Wagner Figueiredo de Lima had a perfect life with his horse named Sereno. They were best friends until death came calling.
Unfortunately for Sereno, his adoring owner died in a ghastly motor accident earlier this week.
The Brazilian man reportedly loved his horse to a fault, so his brother Wando decided to let Soreno attend Lima’s burial.
The late man’s brother told Globo News in an interview: “It was as if the horse knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye.
“Sereno [the horse] began to walk around the coffin, smelling the coffin. Then he neighed,” Kyioshi Abreu, a source who was also present at the funeral, told another news outlet The Dodo.
Abreu said the expression of pain and sadness from a mournful Sereno made people shed tears at the funeral.
“It was a very strong emotion. Everyone who was there was moved.
“I cried myself when I saw that scene,” Abreu added.
Lima’s brother explained to Globo News that Sereno stopped for a moment, looking so sad. Then he rested his head on the coffin as if giving his dead owner a last hug.
“All the way to the cemetery, he would whimper and beat with his hooves on the ground,” the late man’s brother recalled.
Wando said he will ensure that Sereno gets every good thing he will ever need, just as his dead brother would have done.
The horse will stay with Lima’s family because “he [Sereno] was everything to him.”
