As mentioned many times before, horses are herd animals. It means that no matter what, they want to be within at least seeing and hopefully smelling distance of another horse, especially horses they know and like, and especially family.
Well, here’s an example that horses would do anything for another horse. As we can see in the video, during the California wildfires, an old horse was filmed rescuing some younger ones from a stable fire. This hero horse is named Prieta, from a ranch in Simi Valley.
Today, the little animal that Prieta saved, named Onyx, is enjoying a calm, sunny day in Southern California. Onyx’s mom, Mona Lisa, is safe after being captured on camera, evacuating when flames broke out near the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
