Some people think that wild animals are unable of feeling gratitude towards someone who has helped out of a rough situation, but it’s videos like the one you are just about to watch that do an excellent job proving the opposite.

It all started when a veterinarian from Four Paws saw a wild horse that was chained in the middle of a field in Romani. Unable to roam freely, the horse looked obviously depressed. It looked like it had given up on life and was just waiting for everything to end.

Knowing that it isn’t just imoral, but also illegal to chain a wild horse, the vet decided to restore the animal’s freedom and its independence. The man’s actions are touching, but the best part about this video is how the horse responded to them.

The horse’s reaction to the man freeing him from the chains that had hurt its skin and kept it captive in one place is so powerful that it’s likely to put tears in your eyes.
