The bond between a mother and their child is always incredible. This is true both for us humans for members of the animal kingdom. It’s always interesting to learn how animals care for their children.

One video gives a great example of how horses care for their foals.

In the video below, a Belgian draft horse takes care of her two newborn twin foals. Yes, this mother gave birth to twins, which is very rare amongst horses.

Needless to say, watching this family interact with each other is simply too cute for words.

Lisa and Fien are only 4-days-old in the video. The camera records them playing around in the green pastures with their beautiful mother.

She nurses them and runs around with them before settling down in the grass for some much-needed rest.

Toward the end, you see a little girl approach the horses in order to pet them.

Belgian draft horses are not only known for their strength, but they are also known for their friendliness and gentleness. The family reacts warmly to the little girl, and the mother lets her touch her babies. It’s too precious!

Belgian draft horses are an amazing breed of horse that have some unique traits. For instance, they’re world record holders.

According to I Heart Horses:

“There are two Belgian draft horses that hold Guinness World Records. Big Jake, who holds the record as the Tallest Living Horse at 20 hh, 2 3/4 inches tall, and Mcllrath’s Captain Jim, a 2-year-old Belgian stallion who has the World Record for being the Most Expensive Draught Horse Ever Purchased. He was sold at the Mid-America Draft Horse Sale in February 2003 for $112,500.”

People in the YouTube comments absolutely loved the video of the mama and her foals.

One commenter wrote:

“I love it when people put foals on meadows immediately, makes them so much more relaxed in the future =)”
Another shared a sweet story about a horse in their life:
“When I was a little girl my grandparents had a horse farm. in summer vacations I was at their place. And my grandfather would wake me up at dawn and we would feed them brush them and take care of them. I miss those days so much!. I will always keep a special place in my heart for these beautiful creatures! god bless all animals!”

Watching these horses play together brought the biggest smile to my face. It’s clear this family loves each other and that they’re well taken care of by their owner.
