Heroic Pony Saves Her Foal From Barn Fire

Nothing can be compared to the love of a mother and a mother’s love is a strong thing, even in animals. A mother would go to the extremes for her child as there is an unbreakable bond between mother and child and no matter what happens the mother will always be there for her child. What you are going to watch in this video is pure evidence that a mother would go to the ends to keep her child safe.

This is the story of this mother-daughter duo, Bella and Butterscotch, whose love for each other saved them both from a terrible barn fire. The barn caught fire and the owners did their most to save every animal in there but they weren’t able to get Bella and her daughter Butterscotch out of the barn. They just waited till the firefighters would come with little hope that they could be alive in the barn.

When the firefighters arrived they found that Bella was blocking her then two-week-old foal from the flames and they were amazed at what they saw. Bella didn’t want her daughter to get burnt so she protected her with her body half of which was burnt, whereas Butterscotch escaped with minor injuries.

Whitney Hanson of the Humane Society of North Texas said, “She actually kind of backed the baby into the corner and stood over her and shielded her from the fire and the debris that was falling. The only reason she survived and pulled through this is because she loves that baby so much, and she wants to be here for the baby.” They have now recovered and are living healthily thanks to the donations from various people.
