A horse is a friend, of course, of course

The Daily Catch - published on 01/05/17

Wagner Lima died tragically of a car accident at the age of 34. He was survived by his best friend, a horse named Sereno.

Wagner’s brother Wando instantly knew that Sereno should be at the funeral, right alongside his human friends and family members. “This horse was everything to him,” Wando told Globo News. “It was as if the horse knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye.” Wando led an emotional march to his brother’s final resting place in the city of Cajazeiras, Brazil. Sereno marched with them, but no one in the procession expected just how the grieving horse would react when he got close enough to Wagner’s casket to pinpoint Wagner’s scent. Wando says he will now be taking care of Sereno in his brother’s honor.

It is truly touching, the relationships we can create with animals. We would like to thank Wando for taking up his brother’s duties. The Lima family will be in our prayers.
