Wagner Lima, a 34-year-old Paraguayan cowboy, passed away on New Year’s Day 2017 in a motorcycle accident in Brazil. Everyone knew Wagner’s horse Sereno meant the world to him. Wagner and Sereno were best friends for many years.
Wagner’s brother Wando knew that Sereno should be at the funeral, right alongside his human friends and family members, so he brought him.
“This horse was everything to him,” Wando said. “It was as if the horse knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye.”
Wando led an emotional march to his brother’s final resting place in the city of Cajazeiras, Brazil with Sereno. The grieving horse was so distraught when he got close enough to Wagner’s casket to pinpoint Wagner’s scent, he laid his head down.
Wando says he will now be taking care of Sereno in his brother’s honor.
