This Sweet horse is saying goodbye to his best friend at his funeral. This will really break your heart!
Wagner Figueiredo de Lima and his pet horse Sereno were best friends in the entire world, until the Brazilian man’s sudden death in a traffic accident earlier this week. Knowing that Sereno meant a world to him, Lima’s brother Wando took Sereno to his owner’s funeral. “It was as if the horse Sereno knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye to his best friend,” Wando says.
“Sereno, the horse walked around the coffin, smelling the coffin. Then he neighed,” funeral attendee Kyioshi Abreu comments. “It was such a strong emotion. Everyone who was there were moved by his gesture. I cried so hard when I saw that scene”.
The horse stopped and put his head against the coffin, making an emotional final farewell. “All the way to the cemetery, Sereno would whimper and beat with his hooves on the ground,” says late man’s brother.
This is just one of many examples that animals also mourn. The grieving horse will be staying with Wando’s family as he promised himself to provide him with a loving home. The man also says: “This horse was everything to my brother”. A close friend of the family, Francielio Limiera, says “It was an unbelievable thing to see the way the horse was actually mourning. I would not believe it if I hadn`t see it with my own eyes”.
Figueiredo tragically died in a motorcycle accident on New Year’s Day after losing control of his bike while riding along a beach front in the city that day. He was rushed to hospital and underwent two serious, critical operations. Unfortunately his injuries were too severe. The semi professional cowboy performed in rodeo shows for over eight years with Sereno. Together they won many tournaments and cash prizes too. He also was a local authority clerk.
