Brave horse ‘defends’ himself from pack of wolves

Packs of big, hungry wolves are probably the scariest thing you can imagine. It’s no wonder this image is regularly used in movies.

An animal that is within the sight of a wolf pack immediately makes you anxious for it. The wolves were hunting for food on a snowy day in the wilderness. That’s when a gorgeous horse galloped into the middle of the scene. As the beautiful creature grazed, the men who were watching were horrified. He ignored the wolves that surrounded him, just grazing on what little vegetation remained. In the meantime, the onlookers dreaded the day when this group of Italian wolves would finally attack the horse.

However, something strange happened as the horse continued to graze. Instead of attacking, the wolves watched in wonder as this intruder strolled around.

When the black and white horse approached another patch of land, a few of the wolves backed up.

When the horse got near the predators sleeping in the snow, even the wolf who had been under his feet ran away.

They watched and waited for the horse to get closer, figuring how to respond. As the men recorded, the horse moved closer and closer. The wolves were concerned that the horse would attack them. After all, it could kick or trample them with its hooves.

A horse, amidst the disbelief of the wolves, slowly walked into their ranks. The horse kept its nose to the ground the entire time – it only wanted food. As the onlookers’ anxiety reached its peak, the horse surprised them by doing something astonishing.

“No!” shouted the men in disbelief as the horse started to play in the snow. It turned around and sat in the middle of the pack.

The horse was rolling in the snow, kicking its feet in all directions, and enjoying itself to the fullest. Even the tail swept up snow. No one could believe that the wolves were there, and the horse didn’t care. The wolves stared at the horse as it rolled back and forth. The wolves couldn’t figure out why this creature wasn’t afraid of them. The horse clearly thought he was the leader of the pack, and he proved himself to be that leader.

His coat was shook off as he stood up, and the wolf closest to him jumped as it was doused in snow. It was a matter of concern for everyone. While the wolves perked up, they realized that the great beast was not a threat. We admire the fearlessness of this horse. One YouTube commenter explained that he really didn’t have much to worry about:

Italian wolves are among the smaller species of wolves and eat nothing larger than deer. They’re probably wary and curious about horses as they’ve never seen them or hunted them before. Everyone just watches and checks out the passive large rolling thing and continues on with their lives.

There was no danger to this horse, and he and the wolves were just checking each other out. Nature is truly amazing.
