We’ve all seen animals react to babies in a way that doesn’t seem completely within their nature, but this one is over the top. While it’s expected that a house cat or pet dog might understand a crying baby, no one would expect the same from a stabled horse, and yet, that’s exactly what we see here. An adorable video shows the moment a horse soothed a crying baby girl – by deliberately rocking her car seat with his nose. Stacey Storer said her eight-month-old Ruby was ‘upset and screaming’ during a visit to a friend’s stables in Nottingham before being enchanted by a horse called Red. Animal-mad Ruby smiled and giggled in delight as Red stuck his neck out of the his stable and rocked her back and forward. The horse approvingly nudged Ruby’s seat three times to keep it rocking as Stacey and her pal Karen Parsons, who looks after the stables, looked on. Stacey, a 24-year-old carer from Arnold, Nottinghamshire, said: “I was nearly in tears when I saw her reaction. I was a bit overwhelmed by it.
