When asked what is most valuable to them, I believe that every parent would answer “my children.” Once someone becomes a parent, their top priority is ensuring their children have the best life possible. This becomes a paramount mission and one of the greatest challenges in life.
Many successful professionals in complex fields have acknowledged that parenting can be even more challenging. It requires a significant amount of effort and dedication to raise a child who will become a good person as an adult. Despite the negative and positive examples that surround them, a parent must instill in their children the importance of behaving ethically.
The affection that parents have for their children extends to animals too. It’s one of the few things that humans and animals share, and when it comes to horses, the sense of parental love is particularly strong, as demonstrated in the video below. If you ever doubt what a mother is willing to do for her child, consider these two horses. Bella courageously shielded Butterscotch from the spreading flames of a barn fire with her own body.
Mothers typically demonstrate a high level of commitment to their children, but in this case, the mare went above and beyond, willing to risk her own life to save her offspring. This is a clear demonstration of a mother’s boundless love for her child. When a fire erupted in a Texas barn, Bella used her body to protect her foal from being burned.
Despite sustaining severe burns, she courageously shielded her foal from the flames, sacrificing herself in the process. Fortunately, she survived and made a full recovery. She summoned all her strength to continue caring for her baby until it was fully grown. Take a moment to watch the video below and share your thoughts on this heroic mare.
