Do you know what is one of those moments when the world stops but you are not dead? When something very sad happens to your life and you think there is no reason why to carry on. That’s what they say when a mum loses her child. A mother does everything to not let go of her beautiful child and this brave mum is a testimony of what I have just said.
A mother pony named Bella bravely shielded her two-week-old foal from fire, as the Texas barn the two animals lived in nearly burnt to the ground. Firefighters found Bella protecting her baby, Butterscotch, in the corner of the barn, where she shielded the baby from flames and falling debris.
While baby Butterscotch only suffered minor burns from the incident, nearly half of Bella’s body was covered in burns or injured from falling debris. The ponies’ owners realised they couldn’t give Bella the proper care she needed, so they turned them over to an equine clinic where she is receiving the best treatment and care.
Thank god the rescuers were on time and Bella is pushing through and recovering day by day, but the most important thing is that she proved everyone that she is one of the best mothers out there.
