Breeze and Buttons
Hours after his birth, Breeze was found stumbling around by a farmer. The new-born foal had been abandoned by his mother so the farmer took him to the Devon-based Mare and Foal Sanctuary where they cared for him. What happened next is heart-warming.
One of the staff put a four-foot giant Teddy Bear called Buttons into the stall with Breeze. The foal was instantly attracted to him. He had found a comforting replacement for his mother.
