Horses are extremely intelligent animals, who form deep bonds with their human owners. The horse in this video is devastated when his owner passes away, he lets out heart-wrenching cries at his funeral proving that he knows exactly what is going on. Just by smelling his coffin, the horse recognizes who is in the closed casket and immediately reacts.

This is both heartbreaking and eye-opening at the same time!

After a man dies in a motorcycle accident, his horse who was also his best friend is completely devastated at his funeral

A few years back, 34-year-old Wagner Lima died an untimely death after getting in a horrible motorcycle accident. The man from Paraiba, Brazil, had a horse named Sereno who he was very close to.

According to The Equine Behavioral Health Resource Center, horses have the brain size of a human child as well as the cognitive functionality of a 12-year-old human. They have many similarities to the human brain with not many differences. The biggest difference is how their brain is used to analyze information from the environment, rather than for motor skills and language development like human beings.
