This it was a wild stallion that stepped up and saved the day, when a young and unexperienced foal struggled to cross a river.
The moment unfolded at the Tonto National Park in Arizona, and fortunately one of the rangers saw the scene and even caught it on camera.
The remarkable scene was caught on in a series of heartwarming pictures:
When the Park Service volunteer Becky Standridge found a team enjoying their meal on the Salt River’s banks, he instantly recognized them.
It was the famous Champ– a leading stallion– with his large household.
That’s family 💕💕❤️
In was such a peaceful sunny afternoon, when the relaxed atmosphere was suddenly interrupted by some loud neighs coming from the other side of the river. Even though, the two groups of horses initially ignored each other, the brave Champ eventually decided to cross the river and investigate.
Horses are amazing 💗.
Just the strong currents showed too quick and also strong for an unexperienced foal. Within seconds, the little one found herself swallowed by the fast river and it appears she was dealing with a specific fate.
Fortunately, the solid Champ was there to rescue the day.
Horses have such a big soul love them 😀🐴🐎💗.
When noticing the young horse was really struggling to maintain her head afloat, the massive stallion approached her and led her to the right direction.
He took the troubled foal under his wing and secured her till she reached the security waters, and then eventually the banks on the other side of the river.
Fantastic to recognize this happened and that the ranger was able to see what happened. Wonder if this was a foal from one of his mares.
Fantastic to see his rescue instinct …!. Thanks to his instincts! ❤
. Gorgeous point just how nature takes care of each
