This is the moment a baby horse mimics a dog as it rolls over and nuzzles with its handler on the ground.
Footage shows the seven-day-old foal nuzzling Sunny Bayne’s shoulder before pushing her to the ground and lying on top of her belly.
The young rider from Kentucky can’t stop smiling at the animal’s silly antics.
‘This is the best day of my life,’ she exclaims as the cuddling session continues.
The pony appears completely at ease and he stretches out his legs in a bid to further his relaxation.
‘Look at him,’ Bayne says to the camera as she pets the pony’s brown coat.
Finally, after almost a minute, the creature decides he’s had enough and he gets back up to four hooves.
Another adult horse is seen on the sidelines watching the heartwarming petting session unfold. To date the clip of Bayne has received thousands of hits online.
People love their animals. That is the understatement of all time. We have seen all creatures return the affection in various ways. We are always pleased to have our affection returned, and have come to expect the normal expressions of that affection from various animals.
Dogs wag their tails when they are excited to see us, and jump up to hug us or roll around on the floor when we get down to play. Cats purr and roll over to have their bellies rubbed and often sidle up to our legs to express affection. With horses we see nodding of their heads, a lick and recently we even saw a video of a man kissing his horse and the horse pecking him back!
But I’ve never see a horse do what this foal did; she shocked her owner as well. The woman came home from work and came to greet the baby horse. She came galloping up to the fence and was being very playful. The woman climbed over the fence and got a greeting that was so unexpected and unusual.
Watch this video to see the delightful interplay that ensued.
