Mothers play a considerable role in their baby’s life. Every baby needs the love and warmth provided by their mama. But sadly, not all of them are fortunate enough to experience that. Some of them get orphaned soon after they are born, and some unlucky souls get abandoned by their parents. A breeze was one of these ponies that was left by his parents. The reason is not apparent.
This tiny pony foal was abandoned by his mother just hours after his birth in Dartmoor National Park. He was unable to find his mom, and he was stumbling hopelessly around the hillside trying to suckle mares. When the rescuers from a local equine sanctuary arrived to help, Breeze had already collapsed in a state of severe shock and dehydration.
In this clip, we get to see the little guy cuddle up to what his caretakers call his new surrogate mom. It’s a jumbo teddy bear! This cuddly bear makes him feel loved and gives him the touch sensation that all little ones crave after being born. It’s so sad that he was abandoned but so sweet to watch him with the giant teddy bear.
When he came to the farm, he hadn’t had the vital nutrients a mother’s milk would provide, so he was acutely malnourished. But on the day of this video, he was feeling much better after 24-hour veterinary care and a bit of cuddling with his teddy bear. Adorable.

His story isn’t over. Watch how he skips for joy now that he’s finally well enough to take his first trot – after being nursed back to health with the help of his giant Teddy bear. See how Breeze is doing today:
