Mom horse lost baby then melts 26 million hearts after ‘adopting’ orphan foal

Just like us humans, animals love their children and only want to protect them. Unfortunately, however, there are sometimes complications during birth.

Queen Uniek, a Friesian horse in the Netherlands, was expecting her first child. The moment she went into work, she knew something was wrong. She felt anxious at the time, her lips burning and strutting around in circles inside her stable. Yvonne, her landlady, was standing next to her trying to calm her down.

Uniek gave birth an hour later, and the vets helping her released a non-breathing foal. They did their best to revive him, but it was too late. It didn’t happen.
The heartbroken mare continued to lick her foal, trying to revive him, but it didn’t work. They took the colt out of his stable while Yvonne continued to comfort Uneik. She knew her beloved horse was in great pain.

Then Yvonne and the rest of the Friesian Horses staff received wonderful news. Her friend called her, telling her that they had an orphan foal in their care.

Then Yvonne and the rest of the Friesian Horses staff received wonderful news. Her friend called her, telling her that they had an orphan foal in their care.
She didn’t know how receptive Queen Uniek would be to another horse’s foal, but she thought that might be the solution to her grief.

Yvonne wanted to see if Uniek would like to adopt the colt for hers. She lost her son, while the colt had no mother. The barn was filled with hope. The first interactions were very timid. She sniffed the colt, and the colt sniffed back. She did a little dance, and they could tell she was happy to see the foal in front of her as if claiming it was hers.

“It was a very special moment. I never would have thought that would happen. We knew instantly that Queen Uniek accepted Rising Star,” Yvonne told The Dodo. Since then, Queen Uniek has never left Rising Star.

The next day, they found the adorable mother and son inside their stable, and Uniek became very protective of her adopted foal. Wherever he went, so did she. The rising star always walked close to Uniek.
Every time Yvonne took the two to the field, Rising Star was the happiest colt she had ever seen. He ran and played freely like any young animal would. Uniek, on the other hand, follows right behind him and makes sure to keep his little one in sight.
