Oh my goodness, this is so sweet! This Mustang walked right up to the fawn and nuzzled it with her nose to say hello. She even gave the baby deer a few kisses, which the fawn happily received. This mare was about ready to bring this baby back to the barn with her!
The Mustang is a breed of horse known for its distinctive temperament, which is often described as spirited, intelligent, and independent. These horses have a strong sense of curiosity and are quick to learn and adapt to their surroundings. Due to their wild heritage, Mustangs possess a natural instinct for survival and self-preservation, making them highly alert and vigilant. However, they still maintain a remarkable ability to form deep connections with their human counterparts.
This Mustang is clearly one of the softer mares of her breed. While it is not impossible for a mare to exhibit maternal instincts over babies that aren’t their own, it is a bit more rare of an occurrence than in other species. Still, this Mustang mare showed great care and gentleness in this sweet interaction with the fawn.
This scene felt like it was taken straight out of a Disney movie, and we are so glad this horse mom captured it on camera. This is one movie we would watch over and over again, that’s for sure!
