As any horse lover knows, the bond between a horse and its human is completely unbreakable – even in death.

When Wagner Lima of Paraguay died in a motorcycle accident, his brother knew that his best friend, a horse named Sereno, deserved to attend the funeral. As the procession passed while carrying the casket, Sereno knew that his human was inside, approaching the coffin and laying his head on it, as if to say goodbye.

One of the reasons we can relate so well to horses is that their emotions are so honest and pure. We hope that Sereno and Wagner’s brother are able to find comfort in each other, as they both shared a deep connection with a special person that they lost.
