The video below is all about love and protection from two different perspectives: horse-owner love and mother-child love. An intelligent horse helped a rancher tag his calves by protecting him from their nervous mother.
Stallion Red did a great job of keeping the cows away from ranch managers Scott Warren and Jose Ibarra as the two worked on their homestead in Clinton, North Carolina on January 16. As Jose grabbed the young and held them to the ground, Red stood between him and the cows and even kicked at them as they nervously tried to get back towards their youngsters.
Scott said: “There are only two of us on the ranch, so we train the horses to stay between us and the cows because we can’t always be there for each other. So let me explain in brief what I meant in the beginning.
At the moment that the cow tries to go closer to her children, Red won’t allow her to go closer cause he thinks the cow is dangerous for Red’s owner. On the other hand, this cow is trying to do what every mother does, protect her children. Please watch the video below and you will better understand what I said.
