This rescue dog has always been by his mother’s side, helping to take care of the foals in the barn.
His name was Zip and although the dog was quite familiar with horses, he never wanted to approach them and always watched them from a safe distance.
However, what happened three years ago will remain forever in people’s memories.
One day, unexpectedly, Zip completely changed his behavior towards horses. The point is that one of the horses got sick after giving birth to her foal.
Swindle, who took care of them, was constantly by the side of mother horse while she fought for her life, and hoped that she would recover.
She stayed by the side of the horse all night and took care of it. However, something strange happened.
Zip, his dog, stayed with them in the barn and whined all night, as if something really bad was about to happen: he was certainly not wrong.
The next morning the horse died and the foal, which was supposed to be with its mother for at least six months after birth, was left completely alone.
Unfortunately, he was deprived of the maternal care that she really needed. They named the foal Ty.
What happened just broke his spirit and it seemed that he had to grow up on his own. But Zip, knowing everything, couldn’t let that happen.
Feeling the loss of the horse and the condition the foal was in, he knew he had to do something to prevent it.
So, for the next six weeks after that day, he was constantly with Swindley when she went to the barn to check on and feed the baby.
Each time Zip ran to her as soon as he saw her enter the barn.
It was really very unexpected for her, because Zip always kept his distance from the horses.
But this time everything was different. Even though it was the strangest thing, but at the same time so sweet…
Zip tried in every way to support and help the baby to overcome his loss.
He would approach the foal and put his head on his head, thus starting to comfort him.
He acted like a true adoptive father, giving him the love and care he needed most.
Weeks later, the foal finally came out and started playing, after which Zip returned to the “look, but don’t touch” motto, but despite this he always continued to watch the foal with the look of a proud father …
