In many places in Europe, it’s not unusual to see horses enjoying their free range, as you can see in the following video which was filmed in Gower, South Wales.

However, the problem is that when these amazing animals get hurt, sick, or in trouble, there may not be any human around to lend a helping hand.

If you haven’t noticed, we get pretty excited about incredible animal rescues here at LittleThings, and we like to give credit where credit is due. Although we’ve seen a good number of dramatic horse rescues in the past, like this gentle giant who got loose on the farm and needed dozens of rescuers to pitch in, the rescue mission that takes place in this next video is completely different.

In the video, we see some heroes from the RSPCA UK (Royal Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), the oldest welfare charity in the world, stumble upon a gorgeous white mare and her young foal. One of the giant horse’s back legs became entangled in her mane, forcing her on the ground, while the foal runs around frightened.

However, once the heroes come to mom’s rescue, the foal’s demeanor instantly changes and it’s incredible to watch.
