We all know that not only humans grieve, but animals as well. However, the way this horse reacts when realizes his owner and best friend is gone, will break your heart. When Sereno’s owner, Wagner Figueiredo de Lima, tragically lost his life, the horse was brought to the funeral, but what happened during the procession left everyone in tears.
According to the Animal Bible, on New Years’ Day 2017, Wagner Figueiredo de Lima was involved in a motorcycle accident in Brazil. He underwent surgery, but unfortunately he did not make it. Family and friends, including Wagner’s horse Sereno, gathered to pay their final respects. Wagner and Sereno used to have an incredible bond, so Wagner’s brother, Wando decided that the horse should be there to say goodbye.
Anyway, no one would expected from the horse to react in such a manner when seeing his owner’s coffin.
“[Sereno] began to walk around the coffin, smelling the coffin. Then he neighed,” attendee Kyioshi Abreu told The Dodo. “It was a very strong emotion. Everyone who was there was moved. I cried myself when I saw that scene.”
“This horse was everything to him [Wagner], it was as if the horse knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye. All the way to the cemetery he would whimper and beat with his paws on the ground,” Wando told Globo News.
