Goat decides on its own to guide blind horse for 16 years (video)

A really touching video about a woman who owns a goat and a horse, and the beautiful relationship that develops between the two animals.

At one point, the horse, Charlie (yes, Charlie-Horse), went blind. She decided that it was time to put him down, but what happens? Their goat, Jack, somehow befriends the horse and starts leading it around.

This goes on for 16 years.

Finally, at around age 40, Charlie the horse dies. Shortly thereafter, the goat starts to slow down and it’s clear his time is almost over as well.


“Who would think that a goat would take up with a blind horse and spend years doing nothing but babysitting this animal, just because he needed help?”

Jack the goat, and Charlie the horse.

Jack the goat, and Charlie the horse.

It’s just such a beautifully moving story.
