Heartbreaking Moments Horse Saying Goodbye To Best Friend At His Fᴜɴᴇʀᴀʟ – Animal Stories

Any pet owner will tell you that when it comes time for our beloved animals to cross the Rainbow Bridge, it’s one of the most difficult losses we’ll ever experience. And animal feels too. This is the heartbreaking moment a distressed horse appeared to cry at his owner’s fᴜɴᴇʀᴀʟ.

Wagner Figueiredo de Lima and his horse Sereno were best friends, until the Brazilian man’s sudden ᴅ.ᴇ.ᴀ.ᴛʜ in a traffic accident earlier this week. Knowing that the horse meant the world to him, Lima’s brother Wando decided to take Sereno to his owner’s fᴜɴᴇʀᴀʟ. “It was as if the horse knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye,” Wando said.

Sereno the horse begins stamping his feet and whinnying loudly before placing his head on the ᴄᴏꜰꜰɪɴ containing his owner.

“[Sereno] began to walk around the coffin, smelling the ᴄᴏꜰꜰɪɴ. Then he neighed,” funeral attendee Kyioshi Abreu commented. “It was a very strong emotion. Everyone who was there was moved. I cried myself when I saw that scene.”


A close friend, Francielio Limiera, told: “It was an unbelievable thing to see the way the horse behaved. If I hadn’t been there I wouldn’t have believed it myself. As we brought the ᴄᴏꜰꜰɪɴ out at the beginning of the fᴜɴᴇʀᴀʟ, [Sereno] sounded like he was crying and as if he recognized that his owner was finally leaving him. He pounded the ground with his hooves and kept on ᴡʜɪɴ.ɴʏɪɴɢ. It was very sad.”

We may never know for certain to what extent the range of animals’ emotions mirrors our own, but in mourning the .l.oss of a loved one, the perception of a difference can easily fade. Fortunately, Sereno won’t be facing that ɢʀɪᴇᴠɪɴɢ process alone. Wando has since taken in his late brother’s horse to join his own family – ensuring that Lima’s legacy of love for Sereno will live on in his new home for many years to come.

How wonderful that this family thought to take Meg to see her beloved friend one last time. As you can imagine, the community is incredibly moved after watching the clip. One commenter, @helenarice_x said, “Look at them loving each other. The wee dog raised its head saying, ‘I’m here.’ What a touching video. Friends till the last (moment).” Another TikTok user, @Laurie Corey, noted what a beautiful sendoff this was for Meg, saying, “Omg love this. What a lovely goodbye.” And @dp0259 added, “What a unbelievable, brilliant thing to do. 100% respect for your family.”
