Animals do not form lifetime ties like humans do. Just as she is about to rejoin three horses that have been friends since they were foals, this woman learns the news. She was unable to foretell what happened next, though. Shareably claims that “Sue Blagburn raised three horses in Mustons Field, England.” The horses, Arthur, Harry, and William, were great friends as they grew up.
Sadly, Sue was compelled to give up Arthur when she changed her job to horse assisted learning and treatment. Arthur spent the following four years working as a sports horse for exclusive private contests and events while his friends traveled across England with Sue.
While Harry and William shared a home in Firle, East Sussex, Arthur was far away leading an affluent lifestyle. But that was before Sue decided to buy her horse again. She brought him back with the expectation that they would recognize one another. She was completely unaware of how shocked they would be to see one another after such a long time. The reunion was warmly welcome. After numerous mild proddings, it was time to go for a jog. William, Harry, and Arthur started making extensive laps of the field while running.
Sue remarked, “I thought they’d remember each other, but this is so much deeper than I could have ever expected, and… it’s really incredible. The woman was amazed that the horses could still be so close after all these years. She said, “William is quite the boss.” He wouldn’t permit another horse to do Arthur’s actions. It’s wonderful to know that animals also have emotions.
The horses are now the center of attention at Adventures with Horses, a nonprofit that “offers learning and growth through the naturally occurring therapeutic opportunities horses can provide, in order to develop potential, self-awareness, and skills.” These horses are living proof that animals can develop lasting friendships just like people do.
