When Wagner Lima passed away in a traffic accident in Brazil, his friends and family all suffered from the loss. The untimely death was felt by everyone, even Lima’s horse.

Lima’s brother knew how close the bond between his brother and his horse, Sereno, was. That’s why without a second thought on the matter, he brought Sereno to Lima’s funeral.
What happened next was heartbreaking.
Sereno was overcome by emotion and rested his head on the coffin that his human best friend was inside.

This is unlike any relationship we have ever seen between a person and their pet. Sereno’s response to losing his owner broke our hearts.

As Lima’s casket is brought into the funeral procession, Sereno reportedly sniffed around before laying his head on top. Everyone was overcome with emotion at the horse’s act of loyalty to his beloved owner. It was also reported that Sereno whimpered all of the way to the cemetery.

While it is easy enough for us to tell our pets how much we love them, we never really know what they’re thinking. I think that’s why seeing Sereno mourn the loss of the owner and friend that he loved so much was especially touching. Lima would have appreciated knowing that his best friend was there.
