Hours after birth, Breeze was found “stumbling on a hillside” by local farmers and was in a “in a state of severe shock and dehydration.”
The Mare and Foal Sanctuary rehabilitated the little horse but soon realized he was missing something, like a mother, to snuggle with.
“Sadly, little Breeze hasn’t got his mum around to keep him company,” said the sanctuary’s executive director, Syra Bowden, according to The Sun.
“Although his carers here at the sanctuary work around the clock to look after him, it’s not quite the same,” said Bowden. “As a result, we always give our orphaned foals a giant cuddly toy as a companion. They’re just like human babies in the way it provides them with comfort.”
